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!

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...
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.
