January - June 2021 card team!

 Please welcome our CARD team! You'll recognize these faces - this fab team is back again to bring you beautiful card inspiration!

My name is Alison and I live in Bend, Oregon, right in the center of Oregon. I am married and have one thirteen 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!  I’m Sharon Bessinger.  I am so excited to be joining Stick it Down and their talented Design Team!  I’m married to Shaun going on 23 years and we have a 3 wonderful kids.   We also have 2 rescue dogs, Pippin and Shandy, 7 chickens, and a bunny… I’ve always been an artsy person, I am a silversmith as well.  From the time I was little, I loved to color and create fun projects.  A couple of years after our oldest son was born (20 years ago), I was introduced to scrapbooking. I fell in love with it.  I love creating in my craft room with paper and a cup of coffee, listening to my echo podcasts or music.

I am a Michigan girl who has a crafty obsession. Thanks to my parents, I was encouraged to be creative at a very young age. My style is "vintage chic." I love to mix things up so I love to add modern touches to vintage but modern prints. I create cards, layouts, altered items, etc. When you can't find me in my studio I am most likely to be found in the kitchen cooking up a storm for my parents and brother. 

My name is Monica and I live in IL with my husband and 3 boys. To pay the bills and support my hobby I work at a bank as a part time teller. I like to say "What's better than bankers hours? Part time bankers hours." I love to be able to play in my craft room and create when I get a chance. I began making cards in 2010, after a little hiatus and enjoyed the smaller project size (which slowly helped me get back into scrapping). I love working with sketches and so I'm super excited to be a part of the Stick It Down card team!

Hello I am Maya from Taiwan, a beautiful subtropical country in Asia. It's my honor to be part of DT and share my cards with you here. I love everything about art and enjoy painting and crafting since I was a little kid. My scrapbooking journey started in 2013 when I visited the United States and my mom-in-law showed me her scrapbook pages. Since then scrapbooking has become a part of my life. My inspirations come from my daily life, experiences of travels, beautiful natural elements, and encouraging/motivating words. I love telling stories through my projects. Also I am a big fan of mixed media in combining different materials. More so a cocktail of imagery and joyfulness. Hope you enjoy our projects and they get you inspired here at Stick It Down. You may also check out my BlogInstagram, and  for more of my work.

Hello, everyone. My name is Cathy. And I live in Keelung City of Taiwan with my husband, an 20 years old daughter. For my profession, I am a teacher 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 6 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.
My Blog   Instagram  Facebook  Pinterest

My name is Alex and I’m from Melbourne.  I also go by PinkCraftyMama!  I live with my hubby of almost 20 years, am cautiously navigating the field of raising a teenage boy, and wrangling two crazy cats.

I love creating all-the-things!  Scrapbooking is my passion since the storytelling and consequently memory keeping aspect is very close to my heart..  I also love card making and teach the odd class locally.  Besides papercrafting, I enjoy quilting, baking and all things Jane Austen.
Since childhood I've always been passionate about paper crafting, vintage items, DYI and just being creative.  As far as a "style" I would have to say I am the most comfortable with vintage, grunge and distressed. With that being said I will often get out of my comfort zone to try something new and different.

Hello!  My name is Wendy Crowe and I am so happy to be part of the team!  I have been an avid scrapbooker for over 20 years.   With a supportive hubby, and an active son and daughter, and another happily married daughter, there is never a shortage of topics to scrap.  I am a huge Disney fan and try to incorporate it into some of my pages sometimes.I have dabbled in just about every technique and trend related to scrapbooking over the years.I consider myself to be a whimsical scrapper and I have fun playing with all different papers and embellishments.  I do tend to collect a lot too…lol.  



Hi!  I’m Melissa and I’m excited to be making single pages for SID.  I live in Prairieville, Louisiana.  I was born in La.  and have lived most of my life here.  I’m a stay at home mom to my three kids and one dog.  I started scrapbooking in 2005 when my husband was deployed.  I really felt that was important to document for our kids.  I’ve been hooked since then.  I find scrapping to be very relaxing and I love the process.

January - June 2021 double page team!

This week we're sharing our design team for January - June 2021. SID is blessed to have such creative and committed designers. To those who applied to our DT call and were not chosen, please know that this is always a difficult decision. Many factors go into the selection and if you weren't chosen this time, please do try at our next DT call. 

Without further ado, here is our fab double page team. You'll recognize all these gals:)

Hi, I am Tina.I live in South Williamsport, PA. I am married to a waonderful man now 22 years between the 2 of us we have 8 kids, 17 Grandkids, 2 Great-grandkids with a pair of twins and another on the way :) We are the owners to 1 fur-baby too, Buddy an Australian cattle dog (Blue Heelers) and has been part of our lives since 2004. I'm a mold ejection laborer working the night shift for Shop Vac.
I started scrapbooking in 2007 when 2 coworkers/friends took me to my first crop, one of the girls said all I needed to bring was the pictures and anything special to go with them, she provided me with my first album and I had access to her supply of paper. I fell in love with the hobby that day and have been doing it since, that year for Christmas they gave me my first tote-bag kit that I still use when going to crops. I love to scrap in my Scrapcave (scraproom) it gives a chance to relax and enjoy the process of preserving memories. I scrap, make cards, smash and project life.

I'm Lauren and I'm from Philadelphia, PA. I've been married to my husband Mike for 9 years.  We met in elementary school and started dating the summer after we graduated from high school. We have two furbabies, Rocky the Boxer and Daphne the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I work from home for a yearbook publishing company, so even in my job, I work with photography and page layouts. I started scrapbooking 14 years ago and I am absolutely obsessed. My other hobbies include antiquing, photography, reading, gardening, and cooking/baking. I love to travel, and that provides so many scrapportunities for layouts. 

Hi, I’m Antonia, I live in the UK with my family. I’m currently a full-time university student, so life is busy. I started scrapbooking about ten years ago, wanting to capture and record the special moments in my children’s lives, as they grow up. It has since become a passion and a form of therapy – it keeps me sane when life gets a bit crazy! I’ve been on the Stick It Down design team for over a year now – I’m so proud of being part of such a fantastic team!

Hi everyone, I'm Bethany! I'm an elementary school librarian by day and a scrapbooker by night. My husband, sweet puppy and I live in Minnesota! The long Minnesota winters first introduced me to this wonderful hobby and now I can't seem to get enough of it. I love how this hobbies brings so many amazing women together! I look forward to being a part of this amazing team!

 Hello! My name is Gina, I live in Italy with my family and my favorite hobby is scrapbooking. I love making layouts, cards, tags, mini albums and pocket letters. My style is clean and simple and I love colors, especially pink!

December guest designer... Leslie!


"I'm a born again Christian living in the midwest of the United States, married (44 years next week!) to my high school sweetheart. Mom to two beautiful daughters, Gramma to four. I've been crafting since a child & scrapping since junior high.
I am currently on the Design Team at Archi-scraps monthly challenge blog using an architectural image for inspiration. I am also a Master Forger on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog DT  where we shop our stash to create a counterfeit of current kits & then use them to make projects during the month. I am a notorious sketch remodeler & usually work in 12x12 pages, mini books/TNs, art journaling, ATCs, and off the page projects. I also enjoy photography & quilting."
"I'm quite chuffed at being invited to guest on the team for the December double page sketch!
I loved the background polka dots & embossed some on the top half of my spread & stamped snowflakes on the bottom. I realized when writing this that I have no patterned paper (my favorite supply!) on this spread - just a strip of washi over the stamping.
My favorite technique is fussy-cutting, which provided many of my wreath elements from stamped images. Punched vellum gave me additional filler pieces. Sequins, rhinestones & pearls brought all the sparkle of snow.
Visit my BLOG post for a look at how I changed up the sketch, detail shots & product listings. Have a look 'round while you're there! I can also be found on IG @lcsmithsaved."
