October guest designer... Maria!

Please welcome Maria as our guest designer this month!


Crafts by marialachica was born in 2010 when I decided to start making my own greeting cards.
A year before I was brave (or foolish…) to make my own wedding stationery without any prior knowledge or experience in crafting! I’ll tell you a secret: it didn’t end up being any cheaper than getting custom bought ones! But hey, I loved the experience and hence I started doing it a bit more seriously afterwards.
As I just said, it all started with greeting cards. Looking back at the photos of my first ones, I can’t believe how far I’ve come in all these years. My style has changed and I am now a bit wiser regarding materials and techniques. I also know my limitations and there are some crafting trends that I know I will never be able to follow! (for example, water-colouring…)
I am mum to boy/girl twins, married to Jon and we all live in Basingstoke, UK.

Denise


 

Hi, I'm  Denise Holmes. I’m married with three grown up sons and two sheltie collie dogs.  I work full time in an Accountant's and can generally be found crafting whenever I get a spare moment.  I'm a passionate paper crafter and have always loved crafty thngs.  I started making cards in 2006 and expanded into scrapbooking shortly after attending my first crop, when I discovered I could create beautiful memories for myself, have fun and amke friends in the process!  I really enjoy messing about with distress inks and rubber stamps, and often incorporate these into my layouts and cards.  I'm definitely an inky, fussy cutting type of crafter!

You can find me on Instagram as @deeciedee






Hi, my name is Antonia and I’m over the moon to be designing for the Stick It Down blog! I’ve been scrapbooking for about eight years now, but only been ‘going social’ recently with my work. I mostly do 12”x12” single page layouts, but I also use double layouts and pocket page journaling in my travel albums and my kids’ school albums.

September guest designer... Ashley


I'm a 46-yo mom to two boys, ages 18 and 8.  I've been married to my retired Marine husband for 12 1/2 years; meeting and marrying him was the best thing that ever happened to me!  I've been scrapbooking since my oldest was about three years old, and I got into card making a few years ago.  My husband says I am the keeper of memories for our family, and I truly love this craft!  I very rarely make a layout or card without using a sketch, and I'm always looking to try out new techniques and looking for new inspiration. 

Here is Ashley's card:


If you'd like to be a guest designer for SID in the future, all you have to do is play along with one - or all three! - of our challenges. We choose one winner from each sketch challenge to guest design for us!
