First, A Proper Introduction

Who is the Deb in Hil 'n Deb?

Like many of you, I started scrapbooking after being invited to a Creative Memories home class and buying the whole kit and caboodle! I’ve been scrapping now for over 13 years, including some time as a Creative Memories consultant, and while my style has evolved my focus remains capturing the memories in the photos I take. Using my education in design, my goal is to create fun and innovative layouts.

In 2001, I traded in my master’s degree for a hooded sweatshirt and yoga pants and I am now a stay at home mom to three kids ages 13, 10 and 2. When not juggling carpools and planning PTO events, I like to spend time in the kitchen trying out new recipes and of course – scrapping!

I am a collector….okay, hoarder, of all things paper because you never know when you will need that one piece of paper to create the perfect layout. I love using sketches as an inspiration for my layouts and I am excited to be a Guest Designer for the months of June and July at Inspired to Scrap! 

Inspired to Scrap offers great sketch classes to help inspire you to get more pages done. Some of my creations will be featured during July's class. Check out the blog and join the forum at --- hope to see you there!!! 


And the Hil...

I'm another scrapper who started at a Creative Memories workshop.  A good friend of mine was a consultant and now, 13 years later, she no longer scraps but I am an addict!  I love looking back at my early albums and seeing how my style has changed.

In 2006 I was finally able to create those adorable baby layouts I coveted when I gave birth to the first of my two sons, ages 6 and 2.  Now I have the career I always wanted - stay at home mom!

My love of cooking has grown dramatically since being married because my husband opened my palate and I no longer have a diet consisting of macaroni and ketchup!  In the past year I have taken up meal planning.

I hope you'll find what we have to say fun and informative!
