July card team!

 White Rose Crafts owner, Kay Barnes, is a paper-crafter of many years' standing, who hails from Yorkshire, England. The White Rose is the heraldic symbol of Yorkshire, and dates back to at least the Fourteenth Century - possibly even before that! And it's well known in the UK that Yorkshire people are proud of their roots!

Kay moved to the United States, initially, to work as director of an organization providing help to the homeless on the outskirts of Washington DC. When that contract came to an end, she moved out of the city to enjoy country life... and with time to devote to it, and the encouragement of a whole set of crafty friends, she decided to embark on a new path that would give expression to her other great passion in life...  for all things glittery, shiny, and papery...!

July guest designer... Sarah!

Hello! I’m Sarah Jayne and I’m excited to be the SID guest designer this month and
work with the single page sketch. I live on the south coast of the UK, near to the
beaches with my husband, our teenage daughter and our two cats.

I have been scrapbooking for about 11 years, but I was a papercraft addict making
cards and wedding stationery for many years before I discovered scrapbooking.
I own a UK kit club and scrapbook store called Lottie Loves Paper. My scrapbooking
style is very varied – one day I might make a very clean and simple design and another
day I’ll be creating a busy layout with lots of layers and plenty of embellishments.
 


For my layout, I took the idea of the large numbers on the sketch but went with letters
instead and used a fabulous “Beautiful” cutfile designed by Paige Taylor Evans and
backed it with patterned papers from my “The Brightside” 6” x 6” paper pad by Fancy
Pants Designs. Using a small banner die I cut the banner shapes from the same papers
and arranged them in the top corner. The embellishments (ephemera and small puffy
hearts and dots) are all from the same collection as the papers.

My social media links are all below – I’d love for you to drop by and say hello.

July guest designer... Anne-Liesse!

Please welcome Anne-Liesse as our double page guest designer!

My name is Anne-Liesse, and I had a great time guest designing this two-page spread for May. I live in North Carolina, and have done so for the last 13 years. I am a teacher, wife and mother and I have been scrapbooking for more than 18 years. I rubber stamped cards and made hand crafted mini books before that. I love the color and the visual texture of scrapbooking. It just makes me happy to make pretty pages with pretty paper and tell stories along with it.

 How about some Christmas in July?!? When I saw this sketch I knew immediately that I wanted to use some photos I had from Christmas time to make the layout. I find that holidays and birthdays often yield a lot of photos, but the story may be hard to tell each year since we do it EACH YEAR.



This sketch was perfect to feature a bunch of photos - 15!! - and let those images tell the story. I did make the photos on the title side a bit bigger than those on the right page.  The giant title and a few embellishments were all that was needed to complete the layout.

I used the We Are Memory Keepers mini alphabet punch board for the title, and added some hand stitching. My papers were from Pebbles and Paper Studio, and the red burlap was from a Mix and Match paper pad from Canvas Corp that I snatched up from Tuesday Morning. I hope you enjoy this layout!

June guest designer... Angela!

Angela is a familiar face around here and we love having her :)

Hey there SID fans! I'm super excited to be GDT this month. My name is Angela and I've been scrapping longer than I haven't at this point. I most enjoy doing single pages layouts, but do a lot of sports treats, cards and home decor also. I have 4 kids and keep pretty busy running around with them. We play a lot of sports and do a lot of fun family activities. My favorite hobbies besides scrapping are softball & photography.


For my take on the sketch I decided to turn it on the side and use washi for the banner. I used a birthday line to make a graduation card and I love how it turned out. To finish off my card I added some glitter stickles. Thanks for stopping by and have fun creating!

July - December 2018 card team!

Please welcome our card team for the January - June term!


My name is Alison and I live in Bend, Oregon right in the center of Oregon. I am married and have one thirteen year old daughter along with a dog named Wrinkles. I started traditional scrapbooking over ten year ago which branched out into card making, mini albums, and other paper crafts. I work part time as Speech Language Pathologist helping children birth to five years of age. On my days off I keep busy crafting, volunteering at my daughter’s school, gardening, reading, and enjoying the outdoors.


Hi, Colleen from the beautiful state of Michigan. I am a mother, wife and grandmother to 5 very active kids. I have been scrapping for about 15 years but seriously scrapping for about 6 years. My style is eclectic and evolving. I love to make cards, scrapbook layouts, altered projects, as well as love making flowers and create most of the flowers on my projects. I use my Sizzix, other dies, Silhouette Cameo, punches and stamps to create the shapes and go from there.

Sharon

Hi!  I’m Sharon Bessinger.  I am so excited to be joining Stick it Down and their talented Design Team!  I’m married to Shaun going on 23 years and we have a 3 wonderful kids.   We also have 2 rescue dogs, Pippin and Shandy, 7 chickens, and a bunny… I’ve always been an artsy person, I am a silversmith as well.  From the time I was little, I loved to color and create fun projects.  A couple of years after our oldest son was born (20 years ago), I was introduced to scrapbooking. I fell in love with it.  I love creating in my craft room with paper and a cup of coffee, listening to my echo podcasts or music.



This is Ruth, I have been doing scrapbooking and card making since 2010, my blog is called My Hobby My Art.  My style is C&S but I love to try and learn more styles and techniques. I am so trilled to be part of the SID team!!


I am a Michigan girl who has a crafty obsession. Thanks to my parents, I was encouraged to be creative at a very young age. My style is "vintage chic," I love to mix things up so I love to add modern touches to vintage but modern prints. I create cards, layouts, altered items, etc. When you can't find me in my studio I am most likely to be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm for my parents and brother. 

Monica

My name is Monica and I live in IL with my husband and 3 boys. To pay the bills and support my hobby I work at a bank as a part time teller. I like to say "What's better than bankers hours? Part time bankers hours." I love to be able to play in my craft room and create when I get a chance. I began making cards in 2010, after a little hiatus and enjoyed the smaller project size (which slowly helped me get back into scrapping). I love working with sketches and so I'm super excited to be a part of the Stick It Down card team!

Helen


Hi, my name is Helen and I’m a craft addict! I have been scrapbooking since 2002 when I first got introduced to this wonderful hobby. I used to scrapbook clean and simple double pages, however, over time my style has morphed more into a messy mixed media single page style. The photos I’m using and the mood I’m in is what really determines what my pages look like at the end. I also like to create YouTube videos as a source of inspiration, well I hope others find inspiration and don’t just laugh at my Aussie accent. In my craft room I scrapbook, make cards, create mixed media canvases, art journal and paint abstract paintings. Really, I enjoy anything that feeds my creativity. By day I am a primary school teacher and by night a single mother to teenage twin boys. I love sharing my projects and hope that people find some inspiration from what I create.

Karen

My name is Karen and I live in Essex with my lovely husband of 30 years.  We have one daughter – Gracia  who is 24 and recently qualified as a doctor, and a Golden Retriever – Kiera. Gracia and Kiera are the main focus of my scrapbook pages.   I  have been on the design teams for Scrapagogo and Shimelle and am currently on the design team for A Trip Down Memory Lane and Silhouette UK.

Crafting is an inherent part of my everyday life – I have to do something creative every day or my day doesn’t feel complete.  I like to scrap my frustrations, my triumphs, my love of life and my family, I like to record the sad, funny, ordinary and just plain weird things that happen in our everyday life, I scrap the everyday.  I am not an acid free scrapper as I like to add all sorts to my pages. 

I am thrilled to be part of this ultra talented group of girls who will be showcasing their amazing projects over the next year.

Sam

Hi, my name is Samantha (everyone calls me Sam), and I live in Northamptonshire in the UK with my husband and my 2 children.

I’ve always been into crafting, but I discovered Scrapbooking when my daughter was 3 weeks old, and the rest is history as they say!!

Scrapbooking is my passion and keeps me sane.  I was on the Design Team for Scrapbook Magazine and Craftaholics R Us, and I’m really looking forward to working alongside the talented DT for Stick it Down!


Hey, my name is Terri Morris. I live in South Yorkshire in the UK. Being creative is just something that I have always done, I start to get grumpy if I go a few days without playing with pretty paper.  I have been scrapbooking for approximately 15 years. I love to add lots of details to my scrapbook pages and am known to be an avid fussy cutter. My pages often consist of lots of layers to create texture and dimension. I dabble with mixed media on my backgrounds to add different colours, patterns and texture. Although I do like a white cardstock background it isn’t always my go to because if I love a pattern I like to show it off as much as possible. My scrapbooking mostly documents my 3 other passions in life, travel, food and my cats.

 MelissaKay

Hello!  My name is MelissaKay Pearson.  I have been in the scrapbook industry for nearly 2 decades.  I have four beautiful and energetic children who provide me with enough material to fill all of my scrapbooks, planners, and mini albums.   I do a bit of everything from scrapbooking to card marking to mixed media and even graphic design.  I have a wonderfully supportive husband who gave me the entire second living room for all of my paper, glitter and washi tape so I hope you’ll come on by and we can create together!  

Stacy
My name is Stacy Buller. I am a self-employed (Realtor) mom of two teenage boys. We live in Rhode Island (USA) in the town I grew up in. I've been married to my best friend, Michael, for 24 years this October and he supports my crazy addiction to paper crafting. I actually starting scrapbooking when my first son was born in 2001.  It was the fall of 2001. The World Trade Center was atttacked and I remember sitting on my couch, nursing my son, and wondering what kind of a world had I brought him into. To distract myself from the horrors on the news shows, I switched on the DIY network and got hooked watching Sandy Genoveese on her program DIY Scrapbooking (back in the day when the embellishments were Mrs. Grossman's stickers and you used deco edged scissors to fancy-cut your photo mats). But I've been at it ever since and love seeing the progression my albums and pages have taken.
