~Introducing Jessica Doyle!~


Hey! I'm Jess, and I'm a 25 year old papercraft nut from Newcastle, New South Wales (3hrs north of Sydney.) I live with my best friend and our two beautiful fur babies, cats Tommy and Toby. 
I come from a very artistic family with my maternal grandparents both working as commercial artists, back in the day. Since I was a child, my mum has tried to get me interested in a crafty hobby, and up until 5years ago, I had very little interest in anything crafty or hands on. Then I discovered Scrapbooking, and quickly moved onto making cards. I love making cards as I tend to find the bigger canvas size of a 12x12 scrapbook page can be quite daunting.
I am currently on the Design Team for The Stamp Spot, with Jessica T. 


You can find my personal crafty blog over at 

I am really excited by the prospect of this new venture with Jessica T, and can't wait to see what everyone comes up with using our sketches!

~Introducing Jessica Theodore!~



Hi! My name is Jessica! I am 27yrs old and I live in country Victoria with my husband (and best friend) John. We have 3 beautiful girls, Aimee 7yrs Charlotte 3yrs and Ella 18months old who keep me rather busy. We also have a collection of chooks, ducks, goats, a cat Lucy, a black lab named Maggie, and the newest addition is a turtle named 'poppy'.
I started scrapbooking when Aimee was born in 2004 but over the years I turned to cardmaking as its quicker and a smaller canvas to work on... plus with 3 busy girls I dont have as much spare time as I used to! I love all the new products constantly coming onto the market... sadly there is too much to collect it all!

 Jess Doyle and myself decided to start this sketch challenge blog together after both working on the DT for ICS which has sadly shut down.
I am really excited to be going on this adventure with Jess, and also our friends Michelle and Annmaree.
We can't wait to be inspired by all your creativity! Thanks for coming on this amazing journey with us!

~Introducing Annmaree!~

I'm a quirky 25 year old with a stamp addiction. I have been crafting for about 2 and a half years now. I enjoy learning and trying new crafts and techniques, not to mention supplies! I love animals, photography and making new friends. I hope you like my creations and that this challenge inspires you to create and share yourself on blogworld! I've found it a wonderful community to belong and cherish the friends I have made through blogging and crafting!
My Cards reflect my personality, bright, quirky and a lot of fun! Here is a sample-

~Introducing Michelle Boyd!~


My name is Michelle (aka whirligig), I am married and have 4 kids under the age of 9. I enjoy all types of crafting and I always seem to have several projects on the go at once. I am relatively new to the paper craft world as I have been card making for about 7 months. I was introduced to cards (by our delightful friend Jessica T) in August 2011 when I was invited to a card making night. I have been addicted ever since. I decided to try my hand at Scrapbooking about a month ago and really love creating special pages for my little darlings. I love the idea of recording memories in this way. I love having ink stains on my fingers and use plenty of pretty sparkly items, glitter and pearls. I am always on the look out for beautiful ribbons and I love twine. The die cutting and embossing machine (Big Shot- which I call my "Whirligig" hence the name) is one of my favourite pieces of equipment (along with my stamps).
I love trying new techniques and layouts, and love looking for new colour combinations. 
 
You can see all my work on my personal blog HERE
I am thrilled to be invited to join this young inovative team at Feeling Sketchy, and look forward sharing ideas and techniques.
