July - December 2018 double page team!

My whole double page team is sticking around :) I'm so excited to keep these guys!

 
Hi, I am Tina.I live in South Williamsport, PA. I am married to a wonderful man now 22 years between the 2 of us we have 8 kids, 17 Grandkids, 2 Greatgrandkid with a pair of twins and another on the way :) We are the owners to 1 fur-baby too, Buddy an Australian cattle dog (Blue Heelers) and has been part of our lives since 2004. I'm a mold ejection laborer working the night shift for Shop Vac. 
I started scrapbooking in 2007 when 2 coworkers/friends took me to my first crop, one of the girls said all I needed to bring was the pictures and anything special to go with them, she provided me with my first album and I had access to her supply of paper. I fell in love with the hobby that day and have been doing it since, that year for Christmas they gave me my first tote-bag kit that I still use when going to crops. I love to scrap in my Scrapcave (scraproom) it gives a chance to relax and enjoy the process of preserving memories. I scrap, make cards, smash and project life.



I'm Lauren and I'm from Philadelphia, PA. I've been married to my husband Mike for 9 years.  We met in elementary school and started dating the summer after we graduated from high school. We have two furbabies, Rocky the Boxer and Daphne the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I work from home for a yearbook publishing company, so even in my job, I work with photography and page layouts. I started scrapbooking 14 years ago and I am absolutely obsessed. My other hobbies include antiquing, photography, reading, gardening, and cooking/baking. I love to travel, and that provides so many scrapportunities for layouts.


I am a HS science teacher by training and substitute teach a few days a week.  I help my husband run his business and manage our little mini-farm of chickens, Black Angus steer in the summer, and raise German Shepherds.  My most important job is being Mom to our two boys!  We adopted them from Russia not quite 8 years ago.  DS #1 is a Senior in High School and DS #2 is in 6th grade.  We also have a daughter who is a Senior college.  I’ve been crafting all my life and scrapping since 1997 when I started with Creative Memories . . . but soon diverged!  My favorite thing to scrap is events and double page layouts are my go-to format.  I also enjoy making cards and creating home d├ęcor. It is a pleasure to join the Stick It Down design team, thanks for having me!



Hi there, I am Cathy and I hail from sunny South Africa. I have been scrapping since 2003... was introduced to this hobby by my BFF Judi and have not looked back. I eat, sleep and create scrapbook layouts. I love to scrap with a "mix and match" style... ie anything goes so long as the photos are highlighted and the story is told. I am married to Keith and mother to Aaron, who features in most of my pages. My scrapping is my photo album and thus I scrap the everyday memories that we make. I am honoured to be chosen to be part of this team and can't wait to get stuck in and scrap.


Hi!! I'm Shannon and I am a double page junkie so I am super excited to be joining the double-page team!  I just hate the thought of leaving a picture left unscrapped!  When I am not scrapping,  I am a wife, mother of 2 children and 3 furbabies and a Social Worker.  I have been scrapbooking in one form or another my whole life, but have been "acid free" since 2004.  In the past, I have had the privilege of designing for several manufacturer's and print magazines as well as on-line stores.  And I am so happy to be getting back into being part of a team after taking a break from scrapbooking to obtain my Master's degree.  



Hi, my name is Antonia and I’m over the moon to be designing for the Stick It Down blog! I’ve been scrapbooking for about eight years now, but only been ‘going social’ recently with my work. I mostly do 12”x12” single page layouts, but I also use double layouts and pocket page journaling in my travel albums and my kids’ school albums.

I am a mother to 3 wonderful children and married to wonderful man for 20 years. He supports my “hobby," but still thinks it is just about ‘sticking bits of paper onto other bits of paper’. I am blessed to live in the beautiful coastal town of Swakopmund, Namibia. I began my scrapbooking journey in 2008 when I resigned from teaching Grade 1, and became a stay-at-home mom. In 2011 I opened on online scrapbooking shop, namely Scrapbooking Namibia. My inspiration is my family, especially my children and nieces. I love how scrapbooking celebrates the little details in my life. It makes the ordinary extraordinary and that’s how I want my children to remember their lives – as an extraordinary blessing.

June card team!


I will always be that little girl with my stamp set.

I love creating cute little images. I needed a place for them all to live, and that's how my store on Etsy was born. Stamps and paper products fill me with JOY! There is nothing better than blank paper, ink and a small stamp. I hope to create a product that feels like being home every time you use it :)

June guest designer... Wendy!

Please welcome Wendy Crowe as our June single page guest designer!

My name is Wendy Crowe and I have been scrapping for over 15 years.  I am happily married to a guy who loves my hobby and since he does Graphic Design, he always has plenty of input...lol.  I have 3 children - a daughter who is married, a 16yo daughter and an 11yo son.  So I always have PLENTY of different subjects to scrap.  Needless to say, I will NEVER reach the end of my boxes of pictures - and that is NOT a complaint!  My styles change with the mood I am in, the subject I am working on, and the time I have.    I always find my inspiration through sketches.  I start off with the sketch and then the creativity takes over.  Sometimes I end up with pages that look nothing like the original sketch.   I consider my style to be more whimsical.  I usually let the photos tell the story, so I don't journal a lot.  You are more than welcome to check out my different pages and hopefully will also be inspired.  Thank you to Stick It Down for giving me the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on their blog.  Looking forward to spending more time working with their sketches and making new friends!  

I loved dusting off my Creative Memories hexagon punch for this page.  Since I was already working on Disney pictures, I had tons of scraps everywhere and this was a great way to clean it up...lol. I thought layering the hexagons with black would really make them POP off the page.  I added some squares and some fun Mickey Parts buttons for some dimension.

You can find more about Wendy on her BLOG, Facebook, and Pinterest.

May guest designer... Laura!

Freckled Fawn is a craft and stationery brand founded in January 2012. Owners AesaLina and Richard Compton strive to create products that put a whimsical twist on modern trends. While Freckled Fawn's foundation is paper crafting, we continue to cross-pollinate our products between many industries. Freckled Fawn has transformed from a small boutique to an internationally-recognized craft brand.
 
Please welcome Laura as our card guest designer this month!
 

Hello, dear friends! My name is Laura, LauraVi in virtual world (VI are the first two letters of my surname and http://www.vive-lavi.blogspot.it/ is my blog), I am a Primary School teacher, I live in Milan with my husband. I am so thrilled and honoured to be here as May Guest Designer!
I have been loving with scrapbooking since 2009. I like the ancient look of ordinary things, the objects that tell us a story, reading, colours (my favourite one is green), sea and its breath, Harry Potter and his world, cooking and other million things and activities.
 
The May SID card sketch inspired me so much and I created two cards. I immediately thought to realize the background with an embossing folder, but the final works are totally different.
Thank you very much to Ashley and other Ladies for this opportunity and for the monthly inspirations.


 Thank you, Laura, for your beautiful cards!
