July - December 2021 design team!

Double page team!
 


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 an occupational therapist by day, avid scrapbooker by night and nature wonderer on the weekends. I started scrapbooking about twelve 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 three years 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!
 
 
Single page team!
 
 Sherry
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.

 Melissa

 

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. 

 Tammy

 

Hello, my name is Tammy and I'm super excited to be joining the Stick It Down Team. I currently live in Pennsylvania with my (very supportive) husband Shawn and my son Garrett, who is an upcoming college junior. I also have a daughter, Jackie, that lives in Virginia. She is mommy to two beautiful babies that call me Nana - Miss Everly Claire and Harrison Grant. They are currently the main focus of most of my layouts these days! I work full time as an office assistant in a mental health office and I use scrapbooking as my "own personal therapy." I've been scrapbooking off and on now for about 20 years, and would consider myself a very clean and simple scrapper.  I absolutely love sketches and for me the excitement is converting the sketch to 8-1/2 x 11 to make it fit my needs all while trying to stay true to the original design


My name is Jan Mosier and I live in South Carolina with 11 dogs and one 3 legged cat, all rescues.  I know what you're probably thinking, she's crazy....am I right?  Some days I would agree with you.  I also have a son (Kyle) that lives next door, a step daughter (Jacqui) that lives in Virginia, two grandchildren (Katie and Jackson) and a great grandson (Kian James) who has become the subject of most of my recent layouts.  I most enjoy the creative process of scrapbooking.  When I'm not scrapping, I'm either piddling in the yards or hitting up the local thrift stores for vintage items to decorate my home.

Card team!

Alison


My name is Alison and I live in Bend, Oregon, right in the center of Oregon. 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.

Sharon

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 Blog or Pinterest for more of my work.

June guest designer... Wenche!

 

My name is Wenche, 53 year of age, living with my family in Norway. I started with this awesome hobby in 2008 and my favourite part is coloring. So I usually have a colored image on my cards.
I use different coloring mediums, but I really enjoy my Prismacolor Pencils on kraft cardstock. When making cards I like to use sketches so I don't have to think too much about the layout.


Before I start working with a card I always flip and turn the sketch to be able to find the option that "speaks" to me. After that I will decide which image I will use. Before coloring I will find the design paper so that I can get the coloring right. That can be a challenge sometimes.  

If I don't find the right colors in the coloring medium I want to use, I can either change the design papers or change the coloring medium. I color with Prismacolor Premier pencils, Promarkers or with Zig markers/Distress Ink and today I have used Prismacolor.  I like to have all elements in place but not necessary the in the same size and shape.

 You can find Wenche on her BLOG or Instagram.

June guest designer... Caroline!

 

My name is Caroline Rundby and I 'm from Sweden. I started scrapbooking long before I knew it was called scrapbooking! In 2004 we adopted one of our sons from South Africa and I took a class in scrapbooking when we were back in Sweden and I decided to make an album from our trip to South Africa. And I still love my  time in my scraproom. Now when the kids are older I tend to scrapbook more photos of me and my husband! I love to make my own backgrounds with distress inks. 


 I did two takes on the sketch, I felt so inspired.On the first one I flipped the sketch a quarter, because I had a really long photo from our trip to London that I wanted to scrap. My title is Jag och mina stj√§rnor,  Me and my stars. The stars are my kids! I used: 
Paper: White cardstock, Maja Design Vintage romance Love Story, Monochromes Shades of Miles 
Alphabet: Aquarius from QK, letter stamps from Studio Calico 
Black pen
The stars are from my stack.
 

My second page!Min sommar, My summer. I love to scrapbook in bright colours like yellow! I took photos from last summer when my husband and I went to the beach on our bikes. We had a great day and I loved to save the memories of that special day. I made a background with Distress Inks Marmalade and Mustard Seed. I love to blend them and using my old stencils to  make backgrounds. I used:
White cardstock, alphbet Aquarius QK, the bike is from Planner Essentials dies, the arrow is from tools die cut & stamps, nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony black, stickles Twinkle and a black pen. The flower and butterflies are from my stack.
