meet the card design team for next term!

We have a few new faces joining our card team this term, but first we welcome back the returning team members.
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. 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 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.

Jessica K
My name is Jessica Kaiser and I live in Saskatchewan, Canada.  I’m a stay-at-home mom & homemaker (my primary job!). 

I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember!  In 2007, I was introduced to rubber stamping and my passion has taken off from there!  I offer local cardmaking and papercrafting classes out of my home.  I love to learn new techniques and styles of cardmaking.  I am primarily a cardmaker, although I do love to scrapbook as well.  My cards are currently sold in 4 locations locally.

I would describe my style as very clean – so sketches work great for me!    I definitely like to try different styles though and have put abstract creations together – but they usually end up being clean designs anyways!  I’m so excited to be joining such a fun Sketch Design Team!

In my spare time, I love to cook & bake and I’m a Zumba Fitness Instructor.

My name is Lori and I live in a small SW Missouri town with my husband and our two sons. We also have a daughter who is married and has a sweet little girl that I get the pleasure of watching while her Mommy works. I started scrapbooking 18 years ago, and card making soon followed. Making cards gives me that quick creative fix that I sometimes need. Nothing relaxes me more than spending time in my craft room and creating cards and layouts.

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 design team and its newest card sketch designer!

Hello, I am Alpna. I live in a beautiful city Goa, India where you can find beaches everywhere. I have been creative for as long as I can remember. I have been in cardmaking and crafting for about 5 years and loves to create personalised artworks. I like to think of my style as clean and simple... I tend to gravitate towards clean lines and minimal embellishments when I craft. I like different forms of arts like stamping, scrapbooking, cardmaking, quilling, mixed media Art, sospeso, coloring etc. I am lucky to have a very supportive Hubby, who encourages my creativity, and we have a son who completes our family.

Hi! My name is Stacey and I am so happy to be a part of the Stick It Down team! I have been married to my best friend for 25 years and together we have two amazing children and a yellow lab that pretty much runs our house. We currently live in the beautiful state of Virginia. I started scrapbooking in 2005 and discovered cardmaking during one of my husband's deployments. I seem to create more cards than anything else though. Besides cardmaking and scrapbooking, I also like to create mini albums, alter items, make 3D projects, and am also discovering pocket style scrapbooking and knitting. 


Hello! My name is Sara. I am a 37 year old wife and mother to two boys and two dogs. I started scrapbooking 15 years ago with a Winnie the Pooh scrapbook kit I bought at WalMart and haven't stopped since. I have branched out over the years with cards, pocket page scrapbook pages, and art journals. I love paper and stitching, watercolors and sequins. I hope you will enjoy my cards and I can't wait to see all of your work!

My Name Is Dangina Martinez. I'm a happily married mother of 5 and Nana to 2 Beautiful Girls with plenty of time on my hands. I fell in Love with card making and coloring all the adorable images out there about 8 years ago. It was only a few years back that I discovered the world of mixed media and now I keep my fingers inked up, lol. When I'm not crafting, I'm out at the fishing hole with my family and friends.
Thank you ladies for joining the Stick It Down card team! I can't wait to see the cards you create!


Thank you for stopping by to visit us at Stick it Down! We love having you.
