Card team: July - December 2017!

Please welcome our card team for the July - December term!

My name is Alison and I live in Bend, Oregon right in the center of Oregon. I am married and have one twelve 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 5 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, scrapbook layouts, altered projects, as well as love making flowers and create most of the flowers on my projects. I use my Sizzix, other dies, Silhouette Cameo, punches and stamps to create the shapes and go from there.

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!

Hi. I'm Hayley. I am married and have 3 wonderful boys. I live in North Devon in the UK. I have been paper crafting for many years. I have always been very crafty, and art was my favourite subject at school. My main passion is making cards. I love using and colouring both digi and rubber stamps. I have a love of mixed media, and would love to develop this in the future to create a range of different projects. I am always looking for new ideas and techniques and to keep my work varied. I am honoured to be a member of the SID DT and look forward to my journey ahead.

I live with a beautiful family in a small industrial town in Tamilnadu.Crafting has always been part of my life however having a busy family it's confined to late at night when I steal a few hours to myself.Quilling is how it all began in the blogland and it was a turning point in my craft life from where i started into cardmaking, scrapbooking, alter items, 3D projects,fashion & paper jewellery & etc., I don't think i have a particular style, as it has evolved with time.I love all craft challenge blogs as they are my go to place when i need a kick start to craft.I am on a couple of Design Teams, my dream job would be to take my craft into a job.

My name is Cathy and I live in Minnesota - one of the land-locked, colder areas of the United States.  I am delighted to join the card team for Stick It Down!  Like many of the new members, being involved with arts and crafts has provided a creative outlet for my entire life.  My SIL introduced me to card-making in 2007 and it's become my craft of choice.  I have been on several DTs over the years, which always inspires creativity and helps me grow.  I love sketch challenges and naturally tend to layer my cards.  My two passions right now are coloring with Copics and working on developing my CAS style.  In my spare time, I can be found in my craft room, sharing my love of card making and crafting with my grandkids!

There were so many wonderful card submissions that it was nearly impossible to make a decision. Thank you ladies for joining me this term - I can't wait to see what our future holds!


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