Design Team Member #5 Introduction

Hello there Sparkle and Shine Challenge fans! We are so excited to announce our fifth design team member today! Please join us as we welcome Nicole Picadora to our team. Here is some information about Nicole in her own words. 

Hello! My name is Nicole and I am so thrilled to be here! I live in Sacramento, CA with my hubby, 3yr old Corgi Kirby, and 6yr old kitty Honeydew. I've been cardmaking since 2007 and I love creating and sharing my passion. When I am not working as a full time translator, I am in my studio creating cards or filming video tutorials. Cardmaking has been my "healthy" way to let go of all the stress and frustrations. (we all know crafting is cheaper than therapy, right?!) I also enjoy organizing my crafting supplies. There is just something awesome about having an organized, clean crafting studio. When I am not creating or busy organizing, I love to watch movies or catch up on our favorite shows with my hubby. I also love chatting with my friends - this hobby has allowed me to meet some wonderful crafters. I hope you would be one of them! You can always get more inspirations and video tutorials from my blog at You can always chat or connect with me via emailFacebook, or Instagram. I cannot wait to share my projects with you on our upcoming challenges! 

Welcome to the team Nicole! Check back on Wednesday for another introduction! Have a great day!
