November sketch winners!

We're getting into the busy time of the season and I wanted to get our November sketch winners posted this morning before I forget! Thank you to all who played along last month!

Our card winner was... Sandie
 
Our single page winner is... Ange
 

and our double page sketch winner... Alicia

Ladies, please email me at StickItDownChallenges@gmail.com for information about the guest designer position for January! Congratulations!

Starting in January, we will be changing the order of the design team sketch reveals. All sketches will always be released with one design team example on the first of every month. Currently we then reveal the rest of the team's pages one week at a time, starting with the single page team. In January, we will start revealing the double page sketch team the first week of every month - instead of the last week of every month. My hope is that this will allow everyone more time to work on their double pages and we will have more submissions of double pages.

November guest designer: Kaylie

Welcome Kaylie as our double page guest designer this month!

 
Hiya, I'm Kaylie, and I live in Gloucestershire, UK.
I'm a very recent stay at home mum with one very well behaved toddler, my husband and my cat, Neko.
I love keeping busy and have enjoyed crafts of all sorts since I was a girl, It was only when I brought a Silhouette Portrait to make my wedding invites did I find out about scrapbooking, though I've kept memorabilia and taken lots of photos for years. I really love this hobby as it merges all my favorite things to do in one go. 
I started my blog (koalakreates.wordpress.com) a few months ago and will no doubt be completing more challenges in the future!
Thanks for reading :)

Here is our November double page sketch:

Love Kaylie's take on the sketch! Thanks for joining us this month, Kaylie :)

My style is "C&S", clean and simple. I like colors, especially the pink!

meet the new single page design team!

Many of our "old" team are returning this term! Please welcome all of our single page ladies!


Hi!, my name is Loreto Barsby (Lore Scrap), I’m Chilean and I live in Santiago with my husband and two little daughters. I met the scrapbook in 2013 and since then it was love a first sight and I don’t go a day without seeking scrappy inspiration.
My Family  are the primary subject matter of my layout, they are my inspirations for scrapping, I'm rarely without a camera to capture the moment. I don’t really have a certain style, but I would define my style as simple an colorful. I’m so excited to be a part of the Stick It Down!!!


Angelika
Hi, my name is Angelika. I am an x-ray technologist by day, living in Ottawa, ON with my husband, and our lovely Himalayan doll-faced kitty, named Qi (pronounced Key). I have been scrapbooking for 7 years now. Some of my other hobbies include bellydancing and making dance costumes, photography, painting, sewing, and making things. I love to travel, and to record our various adventures on scrapbook pages. I also like to scrap about my cat, family, and friends.



Khristina
My name is Khristina and I live in the Arizona with my husband and three adventurous children. I am a Registered Nurse and also spent nearly ten years teaching middle school and high school students through the Teach for America program. I have been a crafter and scrapbooker since I was a child and taught in a scrapbook store throughout college. I love to complete traditional layouts as well as pocket scrapbooking spreads along with cards, home, and party décor  with my supplies. I really enjoy working with sketches as a jumping off point to create something amazing using my stash.  I really love to meet and network with crafters from around the world and am really looking forward to working with all of you to push the creative envelope and try new things.   

Laura
I’m Laura Rumble, an M.E. suffering crafty scrapping Auntie in my early thirties from the UK.  Besides creating and spending time with my nephew I enjoy nature and food, and they often become my scrapping topics.  I’d describe my style as lots of white with pops of bright colours and I usually have sequins and/or ribbon on my layouts! 



Hi, my name is Raquel Martin and I live in Barcelona, Spain, with my husband and my little baby, Marc. He is four months old.
I'm an optimistic person and a little bit sheepish.
I work full time as a Secretary in a High School, I love my work.

Hello, everyone. My name is Cathy. And I live in Keelung City of Taiwan with my husband , a 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 3 years ago, I just completely addicted to it. So I always want to spent more time for make a layout.  It’s so much fun to choose the papers, colors, inks, embellishments and other mediums.


Julene

Julene has been scrapping for about 15 years. She has been on several design teams over the years and has enjoyed every challenge. She prefers traditional scrapbooking, but has tried a variety of styles. She also makes cards. Julene lives in Sydney Australia and has a 30 year old daughter.


My name is Lucia also called "lailalay" and I’m 35. I live in Prato, Italy, a town near Florence.
 
I developed a passion for scrapbooking just during a journey to the U.S. where I discovered your habit of making albums and preserving your memories by this technique that attracted and caught me more and more.

Year after year I found a style of my own and I think it’s a kind of “free style," full of colors and details and far from the classic and well defined frameworks. I also love to take pictures, which is a more recent passion that goes hand in hand with the scrap. I use pics to keep my memories and I think there is nothing better then doing it with creativity and fantasy. I hope you will like my works and I think it would be great if we could get inspired by each other for the next challenges. 


Katy
Hi, I'm Katy. I'm a busy twin mum from Essex in England. I don't get as much time to scrap as I'd like so sketches are perfect for me! They provide the inspiration and I get to do the fun side of creating! My style is very much heavy on adding bits - I'm not a blank space kind of girl, but I'm looking forward to being pushed out of my comfort zone with some of the sketches. I'm honoured to have been picked for the stick it down design team, I've been following the challenges for over a year and I love the variety of cards and layouts they have helped me produce. I'm looking forward to seeing what I produce over the next six months!


Hey there, I'm Niki. I live near London in the UK with my hubby and our two young kiddies, Sophie aged 5 and Max aged 3 who are pretty much always the subjects of my layouts.
Aside from being a full time mum, near enough full time childminder, I would also call myself a full time scrapper! I teach scrapbooking classes locally, am on the Hey Little Magpie design team, the Silhouette UK design team and GoGo Getaway design team and I average around 30 layouts per month! I just love playing with pretty paper and glittery things and enjoy keeping all those memories of my babies and my day to day life. My favourite manufacturers right now are Crate Paper and Cocoa Vanilla Studio, oh and Pinkfresh Studio and I would describe my scrappy style as a 'throw it all on' kind of style. I love to drink vanilla coffee and eat shortbread biscuits while I scrap. Thanks so much for having me on the Stick it Down design team I can't wait to get my scrap on with you! xx 

A big thank you to all of my single page ladies! :)
