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.

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!

Some of her favorite recent creations:
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.

Now it is time to vote!! The poll can be found on the top, left of the SheetLoad blog and voting will be open until Midnight on July 21st.

Heidi, SheetLoad's July Guest Artist; http://morescrapstuff.blogspot.com
SheetLoad Q - What is your favorite technique to use on cards? I love heat embossing, but I am trying to expand my horizons so I have tried alcohol inks recently with pretty good results. ;)
SheetLoad Q - What is a recent card you have made, that would be considered a favorite? I like this Thank You card because it is very different than my usual style, I do like how it is "clean" and elegant looking.

The theme for the issues IS "Christmas in July". While it may be hard to think of Christmas, when for some of us it is the middle of summer, but it is never too early to get started on those holiday cards. Right? :)
This month's issue uses a sketch by Carla and features Heidi as our Guest Artist.
Now for the five winners of ShortCuts Gift Card Holder Folder Sampler Packs...
1. Monica-FC said... Love the sampler sneak for christmas in july. so many wonderful sneaks there. :)
2. Sue D said... Looks like "Christmas in July" to me!Sue Dslrdowney at hotmail dot com
3. Sherry said... Well, Christmas in July is what first came to mind... then I thought, hmmm what about count down to Christmas, but there are only 21 squares.. so it's not the 12 days of Christmas either..then I noticed there are circles,dots and or round bling in every block so maybe that has something to do with it?? If not then it must be as simple as Christmas in July! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
4. SallySewSavvy said... I have a feeling that it is "Christmas In July".
5. Judy B said... Christmas in July.. Just love to create Christmas cards when it is so hot outside.. definitely makes for a refreshing take on the weather!
I will be contacting each of you shortly about your prize. Thanks to all of the readers who played.
