January guest designer... Catalina

Please welcome Catalina as our January single page guest designer!
 
My name is Catalina RamĂ­rez, I am a mother of two children and a teacher. I love handmade and scrapbooking, of course. Also, I am always looking for something new to learn or perfect.
In social networks you can find me in my blog and instagram.

I show you my interpretation of the current challenge. My daughters and their cousin usually meet in the countryside, there they play, laugh, get dirty and have a great time. And the weather is not an impediment to this.

I used a nice collection of Dear Lizzy, machine seams and fussy cutting.

January guest designer... Jean!



As the mom of two adult children who are both married, I have been scrapping less than when the kids were little. But that is going to change now that I have a new a granddaughter. My style has also changed over the years and now includes a variety of mixed media elements including texture paste, inks and mica flakes. I love starting with a sketch and this two pager inspired me! The first thing I thought of when I saw it was some kind of weather and in particular, winter.

A few years ago my daughter and her fiancé visited Michigan for Christmas. Living out west, and not being used to this kind of weather, my daughter made sure her fiance enjoyed outdoor activities such as sledding and skiing. I was able to create a wintery scene by dripping a paint wash from the top and adding texture paste snowbanks to the bottom. Vellum snowflakes and mica flakes added a snowy feel to the background.

You can find Jean on Facebook, her blog Pagesintime, and  Instagram.

Here's our sketch again:

December guest designer... Amanda

She's no stranger to SID - welcome Amanda back! :)

  
I’m Amanda and I live in Essex in the UK, where I work part-time as a bookkeeper. My main hobby is scrapbooking but I’ve also been making cards for about 20 years. Even after all this time I much prefer working from a sketch to coming up with my own ideas for new cards. I'd like to thank Ashley and the Stick It Down team for asking me to be a guest designer this month.

When I saw Laura's card sketch, my immediate thought was to just copy the fringed tree, but 
I don't have any fringing scissors so I started looking for another way to make a layered pattern. My bracket border punch can make lozenge shapes when overlapped and I thought the shapes would be rather effective on a Christmas bauble.
