Meet the New Xyron Design Team - Cristal "Pinky" Hobbs and Cari Locken

All week long we are going to be sharing a little bit about Xyron's new Design Team members (we'll be featuring two per day). We are so excited to have some fresh new faces joining us...come see why we think they are so groovy!

name: Cristal "Pinky" Hobbs
lives in: Nashville, TN
why we love her: Every project we looked at on Pinky's blog had something unexpected.  From real sand on a beach mini album to pom pom ribbon on drink umbrellas - everything we came across made us want to look a little bit closer.  When we looked at her page for the first time it had a giant chicken card right at the top that made us laugh out loud!
a little bit about her: Hi I am Cristal but everyone calls me Pinky! I am an AVID crafter and Xyron user- I love creating and create every day. I love crafting and what it represents- creating for others from the heart. It is the ultimate beauty. I have been crafting for about 6 years and take my Design Team experiences very seriously- just like a job! I am a stay at home full time mommy who raises 3 boys, 15 chickens and 2 dogs. It's a wonderful country life.

name: Cari Locken
lives in: Langley, BC
why we love her: Cari's clean lines combined with her attention to detail make for some fabulous projects. The techniques she uses and the clear way in which she shares them (and provides great photos so you can follow along!) made her a must have for our team.
a little bit about her: I began scrapbooking in 1996 and haven't looked back since! I love it!!! I love photography and creating memories for my family (even if they don't really appreciate all of it right now! :)) I live in Langley, British Columbia with my husband and our three children. When I'm not being crafty I am busy taking care of my kids, helping with school activities and teaching piano.

Welcome Pinky and Cari!  So happy to have you on board!


  1. Awesome projects ladies! Lots of thoughts and detail work went into these projects! Thanks for sharing!
