About the Design Team

Hi my name is Kim Teasdale but some of you may remember me as blondie090277 from Splitcoaststampers. I have been stamping for many years now and have had the wonderful opportunity to participate in some amazing design teams including being a member of the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen. I am just re-entering the stamping world after being away for last 8 months and I'm excited that you have come to join the "Special Agents" and myself on our crafting journey!

My name is Angela Thomas and I am a self-proclaimed stamp addict. Yes....I admit it!! It is the first step after all isn’t it? LOL. I am currently a Teacher on Call (when there’s actually work available) and in my spare time enjoy card-making. My style is somewhat eclectic as I love a CAS card but also love to pile it on as well. I’ve been stamping for approximately 5 years and can’t imagine my life without it (and a martini every now and then...). When I make a card, I’m always on the lookout for a fantastic layout so iSpy Sketches is a perfect fit!!! (It’s kinda like we were made for each other.... JK). I’m ecstatic about being a “Special Agent” with all the amazing talent on this team!! One thing I know for sure, this is going to be one fantastic mission!!!!

I am married to Ian and a mother to an adorable 10 year-old boy named Phoenix. I am a jazz and classically trained vocalist and pianist and I LOVE my job! When I get together with friends and they talk about "work" I just smile and have a chuckle. I don't go to "work" every day, I go to SCHOOL! I am a high school choir and band teacher and there have been very few days I have felt like school is "work" and I am so thankful for the music I get to make with my students.
I am Canadian living in greater-Vancouver. It's a nice place to live, but the rain gets a bit monotonous. I started making cards about 4 years ago when I was invited to a Stampin' Up! party. I was an occasional scrapbooker and thought I knew what stamping was all about.. BOY was I wrong! I have been utterly and hopelessly addicted ever since. I currently design for Technique Tuesday, Mint Motif Stamps, There She Goes and now: iSpy Sketches.

Hello, my name is Christyne Kane and I'm super excited to be a Special Agent!   I’m currently a graduate student working on my PhD in biotechnology.  I am also mom to two wonderful dogs, an Australian Shepherd (Bud) and a Border Collie (Myth), and a cat (Kaiya).  I’ve enjoyed stamping in my spare time to relive stress and indulge my creativity for 6 years.  It all started one holiday break from college when my mom went to a stamp party and brought home all these wonderful toys; I was hooked!!  When I’m not working on my degree or crafting, my interests include training and competing my dogs in dog agility.  I look forward to seeing all of the beautiful creations each week!

Hi my name is Danielle Daws and I've been blog-stalking Kim Teasdale for longer than she realises.  I started colouring images a couple of years ago and my husband assures me I'm getting better at staying between the lines.  I have an unhealthy attachment to my Prismacolor pencils and I've spent far too long searching for the perfect sharpener (who knew there were so many different types?)!  Other than that, I live in Australia with my husband and our almost 5 year old daughter - she's getting better at colouring between the lines too...

I'm Arielle Gordon, wife to Jeff and mom to Alex (4) and Maisie Grace (2 1/2)... we live in my hometown in southeast AL, and I work full time and craft full time (which translates to little sleep!). I started stamping and blogging five years ago, and it's such a great artistic release! I love cooking, playing with the kids, and taking tons of pictures. I look forward to the day (coming soon, I hope!) that I can be a SAHM & just enjoy every day with my family more! I run 2 challenge blogs, colourQ and RetroSketches, and also have fun as a DT member for a few others and "hybrid decorator" for a digital scrap company. It seems the more I have to do, the more I get done - so I stay busy and happy!

Hi my name is Vicki Dutcher and I AM a stamp-alholic, and have been for the last 4 years [and an added 10 #'s from sitting to much!].  I love doing challenges and being on this team will be perfect since I always start my cards with a sketch!  I live in the warm year round, state of Arizona.  We [dh and ds-17] love it here because of the weather. Best move we ever made.  I work part time as a barista for Starbucks and have been with the company going on 13 years!  [Yeah, I love my job!] 
Thanks Kim for this fun opportunity to be on the Team with such crazy, fun team members!

 Hi! I’m a transplanted Midwesterner living in the Sunny South and loving it!! Married to my high school sweetheart {actually, middle school sweetheart… that’s my claim to fame… and it’s been easygoing all the way, LOL!!} Have two daughters, 24 and 19, you could say I’m a “seasoned woman”…  or is that just a bunch of gray hairs—cover those babies up myself!! The other members of my immediate family are two Westies {my husband’s boys} Cooper and Noah. My sweet Sis introduced me to stamping after scrapbooking for several years and honestly… I AM absolutely addicted and seriously easily enabled!! LOVE to participate in challenges and am excited to be a part of this team, Thanks Kim!!

Secret Agent Leanne reporting in from “Down Under” – Australia! I am really honoured and excited to be part of the fabulous design team at ISSC.  I love the “kick start” that a sketch can give to your card making and have loved playing along with ISSC since it began.  So naturally when Kim asked me to join the team I just jumped at the opportunity!

I have been a scrapbooker and card maker for over 15 years although card making has become my biggest obsession of late. I have been married to my wonderfully supportive husband for over 25 years and am a mother to my gorgeous 19 year old girl. Both are the biggest inspiration for my scrapbooking and supporters of my card making. I really like incorporating handmade flowers and embellishments onto my cards and love adding those special little finishing touches like hand stitching, buttons or vintage lace/seam binding and have a true shabby chic style with most of my cards and layouts.  If I am not edge distressing and inking it’s just not right.  I am lucky enough to have been working in retail scrapbooking stores as a class teacher, designer and customer service representative since 2002 both in Australia and the US. 

I am so excited to be part of the ISSC design team and look forward to sharing my creations with you and seeing your takes on the weekly sketches.
