December guest designer... Cheryl

Please join me in welcoming Cheryl as our double page guest designer this month! I think you're going to love her page!

Hi everyone! My name is Cheryl Even and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for Stick It Down this month.  A Southern California native, I have been married to my college sweetheart Greg for 24 years and am a SAHM to two wonderful boys, Adrian and Elliot, as well as being a foster mom to two little sweeties. I’ve been scrapbooking ever since I went to my first scrapbooking party and decided to try it for a month to see if I liked it. 18 years later, I think you could say I stuck with it and loved it! Although my life is really busy with raising four children and leading a women’s Bible study at church, I usually find time every week to sneak away to my craft room to scrapbook, and then I post my completed work on my blog,

Here is our double page sketch:

and here is Cheryl's page:

Look at how many photos she included on this spread! I am amazed. I love that she made this sketch her own.

If you're interested in being a guest designer for us in the future, just link up your project to one of our sketch challenges. You have until the end of the month to play along!

December guest designer... Stacey

Please welcome Stacey as our December card guest designer!

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. 

Here is our December card sketch:
and here is Stacey's card! Beautiful colors and such a pretty winter card!

If you're interested in being a guest designer for SID, just upload your project for one of our sketch challenges. At the end of the month, we choose one entry for each sketch to be a guest designer in the future!

December guest designer... Denise

Please welcome Denise as our single page guest designer this month.

My name is Denise Coulter and I live in beautiful Southern California with my husband and two children.  I have been scrapbooking for over 14 years and I scrap my pages completely out of order. My albums are an eclectic mess of people and events, and I love them that way. You can find more of my scrapbooking pages over at My layout was created for my daughter's room.  She recently changed her bedroom to a beach theme, so I plan to frame the layout for her to place on the wall. 

Here is our December sketch:
 and here is Denise's page:

 I am loving all the layouts this month using the large letter in the title. Really cool! Thank you for joining us, Denise!

November sketch winners!

We're getting into the busy time of the season and I wanted to get our November sketch winners posted this morning before I forget! Thank you to all who played along last month!

Our card winner was... Sandie
Our single page winner is... Ange

and our double page sketch winner... Alicia

Ladies, please email me at for information about the guest designer position for January! Congratulations!

Starting in January, we will be changing the order of the design team sketch reveals. All sketches will always be released with one design team example on the first of every month. Currently we then reveal the rest of the team's pages one week at a time, starting with the single page team. In January, we will start revealing the double page sketch team the first week of every month - instead of the last week of every month. My hope is that this will allow everyone more time to work on their double pages and we will have more submissions of double pages.
