February card team!

 This heart card was perfect this month for all of the valentines in your life!

Sharon added this cute Pug to her greeting.

The pop of black really pops on Sherry's pink & white card.

Two cards for this months inspiration! Visit Sherry's BLOG for more details on how they were made.

Since it is Valentine's Day this month, I embraced the hearts in the sketch. I loved this type of card sketch since I was able to use up old scraps - Mandi

Monica switched it up & added a lot of shine for a St. Patty themed card using glitter gel, a stencil, an embossing folder and Perfect Pearls.

We're loving the creative interpretation of Maureen OSullivan's card this month!

  You have until the end o fthe month to play along with any - or all! - of our challenges. Just create a layout or card based on a sketch and link your entry on the sidebar. If you share on social media, be sure to tag us and use #StickItDown. We'll choose one winner from all entries to be a guest designer in April!

February Guest Designer: Alicia O'Bryant

 Today we get to welcome our February Guest Designer: Alicia O'Bryant! 

Hi I am Alicia O'Bryant.  I am so excited to be a guest designer for Stick It Down this month.  I live in Cincinnati, OH. I have been married to my husband for almost 10 years.  I have one grown son and one fur baby.  I have been scrapping since just before my son was born over 20 years ago. The craft has evolved so much since I began.  Like a lot of crafters, I am a hoarder and it gives me such pleasure to use up all that old product mixed with the latest trends.  I also make cards which increases the amount of different techniques I employ in my crafting. Die cutting and paper piecing are favorites.  I am currently learning to master coloring with alcohol markers.  Besides crafting, my husband and I love to travel and go to concerts.  We go on an annual trip to Jamaica to see our favorite band with some of our best friends which I have featured in today's project.  I used all solid cardstock paired with some interesting ephemera including tickets, bingo markers and crinkle ribbon.  I hope it inspires you to scrap your good memories. 

You can find more of Alicia's work at these places:

Alicia decided to use our single-page sketch this month and created a layout about her time in Jamaica. Looks like a fun night! You can view her post here

We would love to have a chance to spotlight your work and become a guest designer! All you have to do is play along with our monthly challenges and upload your layout! We randomly choose winners each month and those winners become our guest designers. 

I hope that inspires you to get crafting so we can feature your work next!

February Double Page Sketch Team


Welcome to February and a month where we get to focus on all things LOVE! Lauren created this fun Valentine's-themed sketch and then our design team each took a turn putting their creative brains to work! You'll notice each of us actually used the sketch to document something other than Valentine's Day---and that's ok! Do whatever you feel led to scrapbook!


I created a layout for my pregnancy album about setting up my daughter's nursery.  It's pinks and purple florals with some Beatrix Potter Bunnies.  I even handmade her mobile out of felt. 

This layout is about my daughter's first birthday! I found that fun cake-cut file and knew it had to be used with these photos! This was such a fun day that I now get to remember forever. 


This layout worked great for several photos of my husbands Birthday.  Always fun for family to get together for any occasion.

I combined Autumn and winter collections to create this layout documenting about how pumpkins are stored during the cold winter month in the countryside.


Isn't it fun to see how differently everyone uses one idea? 
We want to see yours! Be sure to post your creation so we can see what you were inspired by!
