Guest Spotlight with Lori Craig.

Hi Verve fans!  Welcome to the first day of our October Guest Diva Spotlights!  Last Friday we released 2 new sets, a plain jane, a die set and a sequin mix.  And this week we've got four special guest spotlights planned showing you some more inspiration with the new goodies!  Plus there's a chance to win some Verve each day this week!

Today's featured designer is Lori Craig.  She's a long time Verve customer, cheerleader, friend and one of the nicest people in the stamping industry. I love her sunny, crisp style with a splash of fun. She's been asking for a Verve wheat set for what seems like FOREVER and while there's only one wheat image in our Good Work set, I was totally thinking of her when I included it!

Prize Alert: Hop on over to Lori's blog, Make a Difference, to check out her fabulous first looks at the new sets and give her a little shout out in the comment section for a chance to win a $30 gift voucher to Verve!

Read on for a little bit about Lori in her own words, and a few peeks at the cards she's sharing today.

My name is Lori Craig, and I'm so happy to be sharing a few Verve creations with you from the most recent release. 

I have been a happy, happy Verve customer for years who loves Julee's crisp, fresh stamp images mixed with beautifully designed, never-changing truth from God's Word.

I have been paper crafting since 1998 when a friend shared stamping with me! I thought I'd make a few greeting cards and move on to some other addiction, but the relationships I've made thru designing, my work at Splitcoaststampers as their advertising manager for the past 8 years and teaching as I travel across the country for Copic Markers have me more in love with the craft today than ever before!

My husband and I have relocated a stamp studio over 4 different states since 1998, and after recent transfer, I am more than ecstatic to be living back in my home state of Kansas, stamping on the prairie! We have 2 teenage daughters, so crafty time is harder to come by now than ever, but I manage to get into my studio several times per week.

The thing I love most about paper crafting is the kindness shared by fellow addicts, followed by kraft card stock and the color Tiffany Blue.  I love a clean, classic design which is sometimes difficult to combo with my current favorite technique style of ink spattering or wash for background effects. 

A big thank you to Lori for her awesome spotlights!!!  Be sure to head on over to her blog and give her a shout-out for a chance to win. And stay tuned this Friday for more from Lori during our Release in Review Blog Hop!
