And the Readers Choice Guest Artist Nominees are...

And your nominees for Reader's Choice Guest Artist are...

Kelli C:

My name is Kelli Caslow, I am a work from home mommy to two toddlers (a 3 year old and a 2 year old), my primary job is as a dental lab technician (I make teeth), but I'd much rather be a professional crafter!

I've been a scrapbooker for well over ten years, only within the last year and a half have I become increasingly addicted to card making. I have even recently begun developing my own line of clear stamps using my own drawings. It's been a scary, overwhelming and extremely rewarding journey so far and at the end of the day it's nice to sit back and ink up a stamp or two or three while watching tv.

Lorie A:

Hi! My name is Lorie Ames and I love to stamp! I have been stamping for about 6 years now and find great joy in watching the reaction of people who receive my cards.

I have recently found SheetLoads of Cards but I can tell you that I'll be a regular on the website as I LOVE sketches that help me get the most out of my stamp time as SheetLoads does. In anticipation of how much I'll use SheetLoad's magazines I've made a special category on my blog for them!

Please feel free to visit my blog or e-mail me anytime!

Riley F:

I began stamping seriously about two years go when my mom introduced me to card making. I haven't looked back since! I am mostly into Stampin' Up, but I do like other vendors such as Verve Visual and Stamping Bella.

My style would be a mix of cutesy and classic. I really like all of the different styles of stamps, although I have a hard time with the really big scenic stamps.

When I am not stamping, I am teaching dance at my dance studio that I've owned since 2005. I opened it my last year of college when the studio I worked at abruptly closed. It has not been an easy road, but my hard work is starting to pay off. At the end of June I was named America's Dance Teacher of the Year 2008-2009. Two of my students also won national titles. We are now home to America's Junior Dancer of the Year, America's Mini Miss Dance, and America's Teen Mister Dance.
