Getting to Know Us!!!

 We have many wonderful employees and instructors here at The Scrapbook Store.  We are one big happy family here, and we all go to great measures to make sure we have a very comfortable, friendly place for you to shop and visit.  Our staff has been complimented so much via email, facebook, and just by word of mouth, so we thought it would be super fun for you to meet them all!!  In the next few weeks and months, we will be featuring some very special and talented people that may look a little familiar to you.  If they don't, come on in and visit us - either shop or take a class or just to introduce yourself.  We love meeting new people and making new friends!!

Meet Debbie!
Debbie says.....

Hello my peeps, my name is Debbie.  I'm here to tell you a litte bit about myself.  I started scrapbooking 15yrs ago after attending an in-home demonstration.  After that night I was addicted to it and have been doing it ever since. I've worked for The Scrapbook Store for a total of 6yrs, between the old & new locations.  You can find me teaching classes and working in the store.  I teach a number of classes from Basic Scrapbooking, Beyond Basic, Bella Blvd Classes,  Pet Classes, Disney Classes and the most recently added - Kids Corner.  I also act as a scrapbook consultant if you would like help with your books or I create custom albums for those that do not have time to do it themselves.  I LOVE to help with special events and work the crops at the store.
Some of my favorite paper lines are Bella Blvd (of course), Bo Bunny, WeRMemory Keepers and Echo Park.  I call myself a collector of paper and Thickers (American Craft Alphas), and when it comes to a layout, you can never have enough bling on it! I love trying new product and techniques.  
Working at The Scrapbook Store is exciting, and I enjoy helping the customers, and in my opinion that is the best part of my job.  The Scrapbook Store is my home away from home and the customers are not just customers they are friends. I've made tons of friends from working at the store, and wouldn't trade it for anything!  
Check out these pics!!
We had a ton of fun at our Santa's workshop back in December!  I was Elf Debbie...
My newest class is called Kids Corner.  Kids (ages 6 and up), can come in and create two 8x8 pages every month, and before you know it, they walk away with a completed book.  What a great hobby for the kids, and a great way for mom and child to begin a hobby where they can spend quality time together!  These are samples of 2 of the pages...
I also teach classes to Daisie troops, Brownie troups, birthday parties and other kids groups.  I you are interested in having your party or special group, just give the store a call for details!
Here are samples of other classes I have done in the past...
this was a Harry Potter Class (I also teach Disney)
My Spring Things mini book class sold out, so I decided to make a few extra kits that are on sale now at the store.  Bella Blvd. Spring Flings and Easter Things line was used to create this cute little book!
Here is a recent layout I made of me and my dad!
On A Personal Note...
When I'm not at The Scrapbook Store you can find me spending time with my family.  I have been married to a wonderful man for 23yrs and we have a beautiful daughter that is 21yrs old and is away at college.  She will be graduating in December from Edgewood College, School of Nursing.  As a family we like to vacation in Florida.  Disney is "the happiest place on earth" (excluding The Scrapbook Store) and Clearwater Beach is a place we love to go to relax.   Someday, I'd love to retire there.  I have a German Shepard, Nyla and she is my baby and is treated like one to.
Hubby, Doug - Daughter, Rachel - and Me
 I also work as a Home Care Caregiver part-time.  I enjoy helping my clients (I like to call them my Peeps) so they can continue living in their home. I help them with shopping, cleaning, assist with daily living and act as a companion.  My one peep and I love to have coffee and cookies while we talk.  She tells me stories from when she was young, and I love listening to them.  They are amazing people and the stories they have are amazing as well.  I look forward to our time and they look forward to seeing me.

Some of my favorite things include: Anything Coach, taking walks, having Starbucks with my girlfriends, chocolate, pizza & Mexican food, spending time with my daughter, New York & Co., the color Pink,  animal prints, bling and of course, working at The Scrapbook Store.

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning a few things about me and I when you see me stop and say HI!  See you soon.
