January Guest Designer---Phillis!

Hello, my name is Phillis Walrath.  I am from upstate NY and by upstate I mean right next to the border.  I live 1 hour south of Montreal, Canada.  I began scrapbooking when my kids were small, maybe about 20 years ago.   I have never looked back.  I love working with sketches  to tell the story of what my photo is about.  My go to embellishment lately are thread, string, or ribbon and buttons.  I mostly scrap chronologically.  I have many books filled with pages of my daughter, age 23 and my son, age 25.  They each have their own collection of books.  I often make 2 pages of the same event so that each can have the page in their own book.

You can find more of Phillis' work on her scrapbook blog: Just find time to scrap

Phillis decided to play along with our single page sketch this month and added some fun mixed media elements! Here's what she came up with:

We hope you too will decide to play along with our challenges this month and then maybe you will get to be our next featured Guest Designer! Have a wonderful new year everyone!

January Single Page Team!


Hello, Crafty Friends! 

Happy New Year and welcome back to our blog!

Our January Single Page sketch is yet another versatile and easy-to-use sketch from the oh-so-talented Laura Rumble - it's perfect to document those holiday memories, but can easily be adapted for other themes, too:

And to prove this, here is the array of beautiful layouts our Single Page Girls created this month, choosing various occasions, seasons and color themes as the subject of their layouts: 




We hope you find our sketch and our DT layouts inspirational and that you join in the fun with us… You have until the end of the month to play along with any - or all! - of our sketch challenges. Just post a link to your creation in our sidebar. If you share on social media, be sure to tag #StickItDown.

We'll choose one winner from each sketch to be a guest designer and one randomly selected winner for our sponsored prize this month!
