Please welcome our single page team for next term! You'll see a few new faces and some familiar ones :)
Hello, everyone. My name is Cathy. And I live in Keelung City of Taiwan with my husband, an 18 years old daughter and a dog name little Ben. For my profession, I teach Chinese literary in junior high school.  I have always loved playing with handmaking, which has resulted in hobbies like sewing, baking, and garden design.  I start with making cards for my daughter’s birthday,  After my crafty friends took me into scrapbooking 5 years ago, I just completely addicted to it.
So I always want to spend more time for making a layout.  It’s so much fun to choose the papers, colors, inks, embellishments and other mediums. Hope you join us at Stick It Down.

Helen


Hi, my name is Helen and I’m a craft addict! I have been scrapbooking since 2002 when I first got introduced to this wonderful hobby. I used to scrapbook clean and simple double pages, however, over time my style has morphed more into a messy mixed media single page style. The photos I’m using and the mood I’m in is what really determines what my pages look like at the end. I also like to create YouTube videos as a source of inspiration, well I hope others find inspiration and don’t just laugh at my Aussie accent. In my craft room I scrapbook, make cards, create mixed media canvases, art journal and paint abstract paintings. Really, I enjoy anything that feeds my creativity. By day I am a primary school teacher and by night a single mother to teenage twin boys. I love sharing my projects and hope that people find some inspiration from what I create.

Karen

My name is Karen and I live in Essex with my lovely husband of 30 years.  We have one daughter – Gracia  who is 24 and recently qualified as a doctor, and a Golden Retriever – Kiera. Gracia and Kiera are the main focus of my scrapbook pages.   I  have been on the design teams for Scrapagogo and Shimelle and am currently on the design team for A Trip Down Memory Lane and Silhouette UK.

Crafting is an inherent part of my everyday life – I have to do something creative every day or my day doesn’t feel complete.  I like to scrap my frustrations, my triumphs, my love of life and my family, I like to record the sad, funny, ordinary and just plain weird things that happen in our everyday life, I scrap the everyday.  I am not an acid free scrapper as I like to add all sorts to my pages. 

I am thrilled to be part of this ultra talented group of girls who will be showcasing their amazing projects over the next year.

Hi there! I’m Carmen, a scrapbooker! Oh, wait! I’m also a wife, mother and grandmother! I was born in Brazil, moved to Panama when I got married with my sweetheart Alfredo in 1976. After quit my job as a bank officer in 2006 I was looking for a hobby.
Discovered scrapbooking at a LSS, instantly felt in love with patterned papers and embellishments. I did take a few classes and was immediately hooked. I love to work with sketches, try new techniques and styles. My family is the main source of inspiration for my layouts, also scrap travels and everyday life. Daughter in law, a professional photographer send me beautiful pictures of grandson Elliot, born in May 2016. My husband and I are doggy lovers, our two dachshunds passed away the
last 2 years, we are super ready for another puppy. Can’t live without wagging tails at home.

Sam

Hi, my name is Samantha (everyone calls me Sam), and I live in Northamptonshire in the UK with my husband and my 2 children.

I’ve always been into crafting, but I discovered Scrapbooking when my daughter was 3 weeks old, and the rest is history as they say!!

Scrapbooking is my passion and keeps me sane.  I was on the Design Team for Scrapbook Magazine and Craftaholics R Us, and I’m really looking forward to working alongside the talented DT for Stick it Down!


Hey, my name is Terri Morris. I live in South Yorkshire in the UK. Being creative is just something that I have always done, I start to get grumpy if I go a few days without playing with pretty paper.  I have been scrapbooking for approximately 15 years. I love to add lots of details to my scrapbook pages and am known to be an avid fussy cutter. My pages often consist of lots of layers to create texture and dimension. I dabble with mixed media on my backgrounds to add different colours, patterns and texture. Although I do like a white cardstock background it isn’t always my go to because if I love a pattern I like to show it off as much as possible. My scrapbooking mostly documents my 3 other passions in life, travel, food and my cats.

 MelissaKay

Hello!  My name is MelissaKay Pearson.  I have been in the scrapbook industry for nearly 2 decades.  I have four beautiful and energetic children who provide me with enough material to fill all of my scrapbooks, planners, and mini albums.   I do a bit of everything from scrapbooking to card marking to mixed media and even graphic design.  I have a wonderfully supportive husband who gave me the entire second living room for all of my paper, glitter and washi tape so I hope you’ll come on by and we can create together!  

Stacy
My name is Stacy Buller. I am a self-employed (Realtor) mom of two teenage boys. We live in Rhode Island (USA) in the town I grew up in. I've been married to my best friend, Michael, for 24 years this October and he supports my crazy addiction to paper crafting. I actually starting scrapbooking when my first son was born in 2001.  It was the fall of 2001. The World Trade Center was atttacked and I remember sitting on my couch, nursing my son, and wondering what kind of a world had I brought him into. To distract myself from the horrors on the news shows, I switched on the DIY network and got hooked watching Sandy Genoveese on her program DIY Scrapbooking (back in the day when the embellishments were Mrs. Grossman's stickers and you used deco edged scissors to fancy-cut your photo mats). But I've been at it ever since and love seeing the progression my albums and pages have taken.
