Design Team Member, Chaos in the Shop, want more?

Welcome to Tassie Deb

They are the main subjects of her scrapbooking. Deb has become a valuable member of the design team. She will be creating gorgeous layouts for the newsletter each week, showcasing the products available at Country Papercraft. Her sleek styled scrapping is inspiring, using clean lines and crisp colours. Boy layouts are Deb's speciality, which you can well understand why, with 3 males in her home. We hope you enjoy seeing Deb's layouts gracing the gallery and newsletters. To view Deb's full album click HERE.
