April Guest Designer- Debbie Reid

I apologize for not getting the announcement of our April guest designer up yesterday-you know I didn't want to fool you all when we shared with you how excited we are to have Debbie Reid with us in April.

So excited to be here! I live in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada with my amazing husband, Mike, and our fur baby, Abby, a 12-year-old Abyssinian cat. I am the Library Manager at The Chronicle Herald newspaper.

I have been a paper crafter since 2007.  I scrapbook, make cards, tags, canvas and journal art.
I'm on my third scrapbook of concerts I have attended. I came across a cigar box with ticket stubs in it one day and I had just started taking scrapbooking classes, so I decided to scrap them. 

My first concert was The Guess Who in 1975. My second concert was Fleetwood Mac in 1977. It cost $12.00 to see Fleetwood Mac in 1977! I also save the concert review, and I try and take a photo of Mike and I at the concert. I just finished a layout for a concert we attended last month. A local band by the name of The Trews. 

I'm also starting to put together a Genealogy scrapbook.

My style is vintage, shabby chic, distressed, Tim Holtz. Not too much into “cute”, although, I like cute cards, but not making them.  I make cards for fun and for family occasions mostly. I am partial to tags.

I am on the Design Team for The Stampsmith, who make photo image stamps.

So thrilled to be a guest designer for Stampotique! I love the very different and unique stamps they carry.

I Made It Myself!
