Please say hello to two new members
of our Design Team. 

Debbie Mageed


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 am married to my husband, Aly, for 29 years 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.

Crafting is more than just a hobby for me, it's a huge part of my life. Scrapbooking is my first love, but I also make a ton of cards. My favorite crafting items are metal dies, stamps, and cut files for electronic cutters. Happy to be a part of this great challenge blog team. Hope you'll play along with us each challenge.

Thanks ladies, happy to have you join the team.
