About Me

Addicted to Papercrafting

I began paper-crafting in 1998 after I “retired” to raise my two youngest children, doing memory-keeping, and then started stamping a few years later. These have been my creative outlet through all stages of my children’s lives. I have been married to my husband, Aly, since 1989 and have four beautiful adult kids, Michael, Holly, Adam and Sarah. Moving a few times in the early years of my husband’s career, we finally settled in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2003. My interests have varied over the years with a few crafts beyond stamping and memory keeping, with photography, reading and travel also thrown in the mix. I also stay involved in interfaith activities and volunteer work. With my youngest child now away at college, it is a great time to be creative, and do something I truly love.  My biggest interest will always be my family and will always be grateful that they are a part of my life.

Stampin’ Up is a family owned company and is celebrating 30 years in business.  Their commitment to quality, both in products and customer service, is top notch.  I am hooked on their coordinating cardstock, design paper, ribbons, punches, Big Shot accessories and, of course, their stamp sets! As a hobby demonstrator, I have early access to all of the new catalogs and with the discount, I can afford more fun stuff!  What’s not to love about that??

  1. Debbie, beautiful card! I love your blog and your stamping style. I’m an orphan demonstrator and jealous of the Pretty Pals!

  2. Debbie,
    It took me a long time to confirm my subscription to your wonderful blog! For some reason, it kept saying you weren’t available. Finally went through.
    Happy to be here.
    I am searching for a Turkish tea pot and I can get them in Hamilton – bonus.

  3. Hi Debbie, love your blog.

  4. You got me with your DSP christmas cards from the blog hop. So happy that I “hopped”.

  5. What beautiful cards, do you have the measurements for your Thanksgiving card in the box with the trees and houses that you could give me

  6. Debbie you are very talented,look forward to seeing what you have created,then attempt my version.!!

  7. Love your card today. Your design proves that little touches DO make a difference:)

  8. Do you have a video on your wedding bells card? It’s beautiful but I can’t figure out how it would fold to be mailed.

    Thanks
