August guest designer... Angela!

Hi, I'm Angela and I'm super excited to be guest dt here at Stick It Down this month!
I've been scrapping for around 20yrs and love everything about it. My favorite part is reliving the moments that I've caught on camera and remembering the little things that would be forgotten otherwise. I have 4 kids; 2 girls 18 & 15 and 2 boys 14 & 7, so I always have lots to scrap about. Besides scrapping I enjoy softball, volleyball, hiking, camping and taking photos.

I mostly scrap 12x12 single page layouts and I love using sketches. The sketches here are awesome and I always enjoy the layout I create with them. This months sketch was perfect! I have this picture of my oldest at the lake and I just love the photo. Sometimes its hard to get great photos with all that direct sunlight, but this one turned out fantastic.

I also had a kit that I've used most of the paper from but still had this bigger portion of the paper with the bubbles on it. I knew it would be perfect for this layout. I stuck it down then splashed some of my dylusions ink on it. The hardest part for me is to wait for it to dry. I'm not good at setting it aside and working on something so I impatiently blow on and wave my layout around until its a little dry and then I go on. lol

After that the layout was pretty quick. The "sunkissed" title was a sticker that I cut apart to fit how I wanted it, I backed my photo in black to help it pop off the bright colors of the layout, added some more stickers and dew drops and here we are.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy Stick it Down sketches as much as I do! :)Angela

August guest designer Cassandra!

Cassandra is our double page guest designer this month!

I was introduced to scrapbooking through Close to My Heart in the summer of 2012. I quickly fell in love with the craft and developed an immediate addiction. I typically focus on double-page layouts and tend to scrap whatever inspires me rather than chronologically. I then store my finished pages and projects until I have enough for a chronological album. 
I am a military wife and mother and I love preserving the memories of our travels using a multitude of products. Please visit my blog,, or my Facebook page for up-to-date info on projects and products.
Happy Crafting!
 Here is our August double page sketch and Cassandra's beautiful page!

Guest designer... Natalie!

Please welcome Natalie as our card guest designer today. Actually, she made a card for a pocket page!
Hi, my name is Natalie Dill, and I am a life-long scrapbooker. I am a mom to two little boys (3.5 and 8 months), wife to an amazing dude, and all-around crafty gal. I have a passion for papercrafting, but I also dabble in holiday crafts and home decor projects when I have time. I document life mostly through scrapbooking 12x12 pages mixed with Project Life and pocket pages to incorporate all the very many photos I take. I fell in love with the traveler's notebook trend earlier this year, and I have been actively trying to use it for quick memory keeping such as jotting down funny things my child says or document baby milestones, along with instax photos. When I'm not crafting or child-rearing, I enjoy traveling, reading, geocaching, boating, kayaking, netflixing, and puppy-playing.

You can see many of my creations on Instagram @scrappinhappy. Thanks for having me!

Here is our card sketch:

and here is what Natalie made:

Thanks so much, Natalie!

July guest designer... Anne-Liesse!

My name is Anne-Liesse and I am so excited to design this card for you. I have been a paper crafter for more than 20 years, and I have worked with stamping and card making, scrapbooking and mini-book making, and book binding. I just can't get enough paper in my life. I am also a teacher, a wife, and mother of a high school senior. Waterproof mascara will be a requirement this year...
