Keri Sallee has always been a lover of all things creative, from cooking to music to art.
Before finding her place in the Arts and Crafts industry, Keri went to school to be a classically trained soprano and later to be a minister of music.
It wasn’t until after her son was born that she took her first step into being an artist… by learning to scrapbook. It was then that she began to learn about the world of mixed media art and the world of imagination and color it had to offer.
She is known for her faith-based artwork and bible journaling and is the signature designer for the Faith Impressions line for Gel Press.
She currently resides in NW Arkansas with her husband Kendall, 3 kids (ages 17, 12 and 10) and a chunky bulldog, named Bubba Hamilton Sallee.

Hi, my name is Denise and I’m a self-taught artist living in Southern Ontario, Canada. I have always been a creative person and it’s something that will never change. I have many interests when it comes to creative play. I spend most of my time with mixed media but I also love sculpting quirky characters with clay and painting on canvas. I hope to one day try pottery and learn to play an instrument or two.
I hail from the small but Beautiful state of New Hampshire. I have 2 kiddos, Melysa, and Douglas, and they provide me with plenty to scrap! If was to classify my creative style I would say its Distress meets Shabby and always has a FLOWER!!!
My name is Lydia Fiedler, and I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and two tiny feline overlords, Maddie and Splotchy. I’m employed full time as the Community Manager of Splitcoaststampers and also do lots of freelance work in social media and marketing for crafty manufacturing companies. I’ve been stamping since my early teen years, and still, find more wonder and delight in paper arts every day. It’s a joy to be a part of such a creative industry. I describe my style as CAQ – clean and quirky – and when I’m creating, I usually have a small black cat perched on my shoulders, and a true-crime podcast playing. My favorite thing about paper crafting is that I believe it allows me to serve others in that small, magical way that only sending a handmade card to someone can do.
Ana lives in the South of France, in Avignon, with her husband, her 3 children, and her cat and dog. She is a materials and colors lover and it is “hands full of fiddle” that she conceives the happiness and that she lives her life.
She considers herself more as a laboratory assistant or a chemist than really as an artist. She likes combining, experiment, looking for effects, and for new depictions, exploiting materials, and sometimes unusual combinations.
For 9 years she has been traversing the roads of France and beyond (Spain, Belgium, and Italy) as a full-time Mixed Media teacher to share the results of these experiments through her workshops. During these workshops, she enjoys leading her students to discover their own creativity instead of simply replicating a project.
After various experiences with design teams and magazine publication and art directory, she joined the Carabelle Studio Creative Team, in 2013 and since 2015 she designs stamps and art printings for their line as well.
In July 2016, she opened her own studio in the town where she lives to hold monthly classes in small groups, in addition to her traveling workshops. It is both a dream and a luxury that she appreciates particularly.
In may she started to teach classes online.
Jackie has been making fabric and paper goods since she was a child, with her grandmother being a strong influence. She loves learning (and experimenting with) new techniques, and over the years has ventured down various creative paths. Some of which have been, invitation and card making, Zentangle, art journaling, bookbinding, stamp carving, and most recently printmaking.
Jackie likes to think of herself as a creative enabler, and so she now focuses on making goods for the creative spirit — such as; journals, stamps, stencils and ephemera.
I am a Teacher – passionate to inspire and connect everyone to the creator within themselves.
I am a Painter – constantly curious and experimental, thinking outside the box, and always asking “what if”.
I am a Dreamer – who steps into my dreams and makes them a reality.
I am a Believer – living my life expectantly and abundantly – thinking “as if” it has already happened.
I am an Artist.
