Meet some new Design Team Members and a small Announcement!

Hello everyone! Wow, thank you so much for joining us for our past challenge and thank you again for Kraftin' Kimmies for being an amazing sponsor. We will be announcing the winner tomorrow one hour before the next sketch goes live!!!

I am happy to announce that we have added some designers to our team and we have made the decision to go sponsor free from this challenge onward.

I would like introduce you to our brand new designers/sketchers! Of course our "old" team will be staying on with us too except that Jen Nelson and I (Lesley) are taking a wee break. 

Hello everyone! My name is Lori and I live in central Alberta, CANADA with my hubby and 2 teenage kiddos, Calvin and Kimberly. I started my paper crafting journey with SU! about 13 years ago and was a DEMO up until a couple years ago, when I decided I wanted to broaden my crafty-goodness horizons! I am also an avid crocheter and love to color! I'm so excited to be here at Seize the Sketch working with such amazingly talented ladies! 

Hi my name is Jessica and I am from Buffalo, NY. I am married to a wonderful and very supportive husband and a stay at home mom to two very active boys, ages 12 and 10 . Between football for my oldest son and travel baseball with my youngest, I needed an activity for myself and I found a love of stamping and card making. You can always find me sharing projects on my blog~Chick-n-Scrap and I look forward to designing for Seize the Sketch and working with such a talented bunch of ladies!

Hi, I am Vicki.  I have been stamping for about 20 years and got started like a lot of other stampers; a SU party.  I kind of played around for a few years, but when I found SCS I really became addicted. Now, I stamp during most of my free time -- and I have even hired a housekeeper!  (Who has time to clean? Not me) I just adore this hobby!  I am looking forward to being on the Seize the Sketch Team and want to thank Lesley for the opportunity.

Hey!  I'm Tangii and I'm just giddy to be on this team!!  I have 3 amazing kiddo's plus my favorite, our blonde Lab and a fabulous Hubby that works really hard at being just as 'excited' about this creation as the last one, lol.    I LOVE crafting in general... and it's WAY cheaper than therapy ;) (shhhhhhhhh).  I am looking forward crafting with these UBER talented ladies!!!!

Hi all!  I'm Jen and I am super excited to be joining all these talented ladies on the Seize the Sketch design team.  I live in Bridgewater, Massachusetts and have been making cards for many, many years!  By day I work in a bank so at night I love to unwind and let my creative side loose in my stamp room!  I'm so thankful for Lesley for giving me this opportunity and I can't wait to see where this new creative journey leads me!

Hi, I'm Lori Tecler. I live in the Washington, D.C. suburbs with my adorable goldendoodle, Chloe the cutie puppy. She keeps me on my toes with her non-stop antics! During the day, I work in the early childhood office of a large school system, but at night, you can usually find me crafting away with the TV on in the background. I'm thrilled to be joining the fabulous team at Seize the Sketch. 

Hi, I'm Jessi Fogan - I live in Nova Scotia, Canada in an itty-bitty house crammed full with my husband, teenage sons, three cats, and a dog. Both boys have autism, so although I'm a stay at home mom, I'm also a psychologist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, teacher, and raving lunatic. I am so excited to be a part of this wonderfully talented group of artists! 

We will see you tomorrow at 5am (PST) with a brand new sketch and lots of inspiration!
