October guest designer: Esther

Esther is our guest designer for the double page team this month!

Hello, I’m Esther, 40 years old. Together with my son from 10 years old, and husband I live in Almere, the Netherlands. I work part time as a financial administrator by an importer for photography supplies. How lucky can you be? 
Beside to my scrapbooking hobby I like to go hiking, geocaching and traveling. Of course these are the perfect combinations with taking pictures to scrap.  With a husband, who is a hobby photographer, I always have the choice of a lot of great pictures for my layouts. When I scrap I love to work with sketches. Usually I make double page layouts. When I have a sketch for a single page, I combine these often with a layout template. This is a great way to put a lot of photos on a layout.

I’m a “clean” scrapper. Yes, I also like all the mix media products and use them, but almost never very much on one page. Something I always do is inking the edges of every photo and piece of paper on my layout. Further I really like to use rubons and (letter) stickers.

When you want to see more of my layouts, please visit my blog . When you want to be updated when I post a new layout, follow this blog by email.

Thanks for choosing me as a guest designer at Stick it down.

October guest designer: Jessica.

Welcome Jessica, our card guest designer for October. She is no stranger around here!

I am a stay at home mom to 4 kids, ages 2, 5, 7, and 8.  They definitely keep me busy, but it is so worth it! I can't imagine spending my life doing anything else.  My husband and I have been married for 11 years. 

Besides scrapbooking and card making, I like to work out, volunteer at my kids' school and church, and practice my photography.  I started scrapbooking when I was still in high school. I added in card making a few years later. I figured I had all the supplies, I might as well use them for cards too! I am honored to have been chosen as guest designer this month at Stick It Down. If you would like to see more of my work, you can visit my blog at
Here is her card:

October guest designer: Louise

Please welcome Louise as our October single page sketch designer!
Hi I'm Louise and I live in a small town (Hucknall) just a few miles to the North of Nottingham, in England. I am a full time maths and science teacher, mum of 3 (twin boys of 15 and a daughter aged 12) and wife to a very wonderful man.  I have been scrapping for just over 10 years but am only just getting into mixed media techniques.  My style at the moment tends to involve white cardstock, layers of paper and enamel dots but I am venturing into misted or inked backgrounds and am experimenting with modelling paste through stencils.  I love to scrapbook photos of my friends and  family and am a 12 x 12 addict.  I have a blog ( where I share my pages, love of scrapbooking and burble on about life in general.  I am really pleased to be the guest designer this month for StickItDown, I hope you enjoy this sketch as much as I did.
