My son's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks so I made him a card. I used a sketch from the Sketch n Scrap blog as my basis for the card. He is really into video games so I decided to make a controller to put on the card for him.

My name is Jamie Arthur and I'm so excited to be a guest designer at Stick IT Down this month. I love scrapbooking and really love working with sketches. I have been scrapbooking for over 20 years at this point. I have two children, a Golden-doodle, and I'm married to the best man a girl could ask for. And when I say the best I mean it! This man puts up with my scrapbooking obsession as well as my coffee addiction and my love of books (which are everywhere)!  I enjoy spending time in my craft room creating layouts for our family scrapbook albums. It is so fun to be able to open our family albums and not just look at pictures but relive the memories through the layouts themselves. I put my albums in the order in which things happened and I go year by year. The only problem with this method is that I end up with a lot of albums! I tend to scrap everything, however I find that it is so worth it when I look at my children enjoying them. Most of my layouts can be found on my blog an…

Chess

Here is another layout from our stay at the Roosevelt Inn in downtown Coeur d'Alene. They had a giant chess board out on their lawn. I had to hold a mini photo shoot with the girls. We did play a game as well - what a fun afternoon it had been!

Pizza Birthday

My father in law loves pizza and we get together with them about every couple of weeks for a pizza night. His birthday is coming up and I wanted to use this image from Design Space to create a card. The image is a heart beat but instead of a heart in the center it has a pizza.  I decided to create the card using a sketch from the Sketch n Scrap blog.

You Are The Cherry

I don't make cards near as often as I should these days. I've most been scrapbooking! However, it's my mom's birthday as well as Valentines day this week so I figured I'd better start making some cards. A Cherry On Top has a card challenge up on their blog and the challenge was to use a sketch, which I will include below, and to include a cherry on the card. 
I am, also, entering this card on the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog, the Cut It Up blog, and the Love to Scrap Challenge blog.

Disc Golf

We love to go camping with my parents and one of the places we like to go is Farragut State Park. They have 4 different disc golf courses which are a blast to play on. What could be better than trying not to lose your disc in the woods? And no we haven't lost one  yet. 
For this layout I used a sketch from Sketches in Thyme. This layout is being used on the challenge forum at A Cherry On Top, and I'll enter my layout there. I will also be entering a challenge on the Lasting Memories blog as well as the Scrap Our Stash blog.
