Hi this is Suzanne or as bloggers know me Cricutcraftingrammy. I have
been crafting since in my teens (a long time ago) and bought my first
Cricut about 6 years ago and my Silhouette two years ago. I have become
totally addicted to making cards, decor and especially scrapbook
pages. I have been blessed in the last five years with three precious
granddaughters(5,4,3) and now a dynamo grandson (2) . I retired after
teaching first grade for 33 years to enjoy being a grammy and to give me
time for my crafting obsession. I watch two of my grandkids during the
day and fill my free time with scrap booking. I am blessed to teach
scrapbook classes and create kits at Busy Bees in Newbury Park,
California. Currently I am on two blog design teams and love to
participate in blog challenges. I am honored to be selected as a guest
designer at Stick It Down. They have such a great variety of sketches
and I especially love the double page sketches with lots of room for all
those cute grandkid pics.
Here is Suzanne's layout for the double page sketch:
I live in Essex in the UK, just outside London, and I
work part-time as a bookkeeper in a small accountancy firm. I've been
married for almost 22 years, and we have two teenage children. I started
scrapbooking in 2008, the year we got a digital camera and took our
first foreign holiday, and I haven't stopped yet. I generally scrap
12x12 pages of our children and our travels, though I dabble with pocket
pages too. Stick It Down is my first Design Team role; I've been on the
DT since January and I'm very pleased to be starting my second term

scrapbook in 2013 and since then it was love a first sight and I don’t go a day
without seeking scrappy inspiration.
My Family are the primary subject matter of my
layout, they are my inspirations for scrapping, I'm rarely without a
camera to capture the moment. I don’t really have a certain style, but I
would define my style as simple an colorful. I’m so excited to be a part of the

name is Kelli but most people call me kel. I am located in
beautiful Kaneohe, Hawaii (USA). I am 32-yo and happily married, a
non-traditional college student double majoring in History and Asian
studies, only attending half-time to be able to care for baby #3 (born
9/30/14!). I started scrapbooking in 2003 when pregnant with my oldest
son, turned into a collector, and then started seriously creating again
in 2013 because my stash grew out of control! Who am I kidding... it's
still outta control!! haha! I like to think of myself as a
clean and simple stamper... I gravitate towards clean lines and minimal
embellishments when I craft. I LOVE patterned paper and cardstock
LOVE making cards, but my real passion is for scrapbook layouts...
although from my blog you might not be able to see that! I also have
tons of fun with little gifts, tags and mini-albums although the minis
take so much time!
Hello! My name is Ronna and I live in Huntsville, Ontario.
I share my life with my husband Bruce and more scrappy supplies than I’ll ever
be able to use. I am the mother of two grown children, who, together with their
spouses, manage to land themselves in enough interesting situations that I have
no shortage of photographs to scrapbook.
I enjoy many crafts, but mainly scrapbooking and quilting.
When I’m in my scrappy space, all I ever think about is trying to find the
perfect papers and embellies to match. I love working threads into my layouts.
My craft room really is where fabric and paper collide.
I started my scrapbooking journey almost 2 1/2 years ago and
became completely addicted. I am thrilled to be working with such a talented
team at Stick it Down.
Hi, my name is Sharlene Nye-Petrone. I am a wife, a
mother, a Secondary School teacher, a quilter, and a scrapbooker. I
currently live in Southwestern, Ontario, Canada with my husband, Robert
Petrone of 15 years and two boys; Tyrone and Jayron.
I love spending time with my family, taking photographs, and
scrapbooking! I was introduced to the world of scrapbooking by a
Creative Memories party back in 1997 but I didn’t start scrapbooking
until I gave birth to my eldest son, Tyrone. So I have been scrapbooking
for 14 years. I enjoy taking snapshots of my children, places and
events. Over the years, my style has changed. I like to try new
techniques. I like to work on layout with variety of colours as I like
to add different embellishments to play with until the page meets my
satisfaction. I am learning as much as I can and get inspiration from
am a stay at home mom of two wonderful kids, my son (4 in June) and my daughter
(1 in June). They keep me very busy-our favorite things to do together are
library trips, family crafts, and frequenting a nearby creek for hiking and
swimming. My husband and I have been together for eight years, he is a
wonderful father and he often facilitates my crafting time (so he is also my
have a MA in Teaching and Learning with Technology, my teaching efforts right
now are most directed at my children, but one day I would love to direct those
efforts to a wider audience! For now I am enjoying being a mom and a teacher to
the most important students in my life!
scrapbooking really took off when I was pregnant with my son. I had been
scrapping here and there since high school, but I became hooked when I had a
tiny little person to take a million pictures of! I love using patterned paper
and mixing patterns and colors that don’t necessarily “go” together. I
especially love creating double pages, mostly because I have a TON of pictures
to scrap and I enjoy making layouts that are cohesive and incorporate a lot of
I’m 51 years old, married and I have
three grown up stepchildren. I have a full time job.
I and my DH love to travel and spend
time at our cabin in the mountains. Everywhere we go we take pictures, a lot of
pictures. I’ve been scrapping for about 11 years now and since we have a lot of
pictures I love to make double pages layouts with many photos on. For me it’s
important to tell a story, so journaling are essential for me. Most of the time
I write my journal by hand. Early I found out that stamps was great to use on
my pages. The last years I have also gone into mixed media, and love to use
paints, mists, inks and other mediums on my pages, often together with stensils
and stamps. Sometimes I make my own embellishments and I alter chipboards to go
with my photos.
I also make single layouts, cards
and altered projects.
My name is Alison and I live in Bend, Oregon right in the center of Oregon. I am married and have one ten 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.

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 6 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 and make quite a few. I make them for myself, my mother and for my daughter. I loved altering boxes that I fill with my cards and give them as gifts.
I also create layouts and love to try to make each one unique while still have the photo be the focal point. I love making flowers and create most of the flowers on my projects.
My name is Jodie Mason and I live in
Australia. I am a mother of 3 (4 if you include my husband, who can be the
biggest kid most of the time). I have always enjoyed crafting since before I
can remember, and my love for creating has just grown stronger the older I get.
These days I mostly concentrate on papercrafts and multimedia style projects,
but nevertheless enjoy any kind of crafts. I am a design team member of Stick
It Down blog and Memory Maze (chipboard products), and you can find me over at www.jodiescraftivity.blogspot.com.au.
I am a stay at
home mom of a wonderful girl (she are three years old - 5.6). Now she
goes to kindergarten, and I have a lot of free time for my favorite hobby. I
have a wonderful husband, and he is a great father. Also we have two very
fluffy and gentle cat. I love cats. And really love to chat with friends, read
books, and of course creating: Scrapbooking, Cards and Mixed media.
My dream is to hold master classes on Scrapbooking, Cards making and Mixed
media. In the meantime, I keep myself constantly learn new things and new
techniques. I love to mix techniques, styles and try new things. My messy work
table is my happy place and i am siting there a lot lately.
I make cards for 9 years. At first I made an album for a friend as a wedding
gift but it was not the classic Scrapbooking style. And then I slowly started
to read and look at internet master classes, and since then I addicted to
Scrapbooking and making cards.
I’m Evelyn. Like most of you,
I have always been crafty one way or another. I knit, did counted
cross-stitch for a few years, and have made beaded Christmas tree
ornaments. I’ve kept a scrapbook since I was a girl. It included
grainy, out of focus black and white photos taken on school field trips and
around my home, locks of hair from when I got it cut, and paint samples from
when I painted my bedroom walls (pink and yellow!) When I discovered
scrapbooking, I took that old scrapbook apart and re-made it using all
acid-free materials. My first die cutting machine was the Cricut
Expression. I now have two of them, a Gypsy, a Cameo and a Portrait, and
use all of them to make scrapbook layouts, cards, and other paper items as
well. I'm honored and excited to be a member of the Stick it Down card
design team and its newest card sketch designer!
My name is Irmelin and I am from
Lulea, which is located in northern Sweden. Right now I am studying to be a
nurse, with one year remaining of the education. I live with my partner, a 2.5
year old son and two cats. Besides crafting, I like to take photos, music and
watch TV series.
Crafting, I have probably done since
I was little. But began with layouts around 2006. 2013 I started with
cardmaking when I got my Sizziz Big Shot machine. And this year I also started
with art journaling and mixed media canvas. I like to work with color and
stamps. Distress Ink is a favorite along with embossing powder. Like also to
make CAS card and die-cutting.
