February guest designer... Angela!

Please welcome Angela as our February card guest designer!

My name is Angela and I love to make cards, create layouts and even some home décor items. I have been scrapbooking for about 18 years and love it! It is a creative outlet for me when I just want to relax and take my mind off of other things. If I had to pick what style of a crafter I was, I would say clean and simple. I live in Colorado with my sweet husband and 4 wonderful kids. When I am not crafting I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, being silly with my friends, and serving in my church. Something you may not know about me is that I am a huge Maroon 5 fan! I love many types of music, but they are my all-time favorite! I often listen to them when I am crafting!

Here is our February card sketch:

Thanks for joining us this month, Angela!

You have until the end of the month to participate in our card sketch (or any of our sketch challenges!). One winner from each sketch is invited back to be a guest designer in the future!

February guest designer... Cheryl!

Today we welcome Cheryl as our single page guest designer this month!

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 sketch:

Thank you Cheryl!
