Greetings Fellow Scrapbookers!

My name is Traci Bird and I’ve been scrapbooking off and on for 8 years now. I started scrapbooking when my daughter was born. (She is now coming up on her 9th birthday). I love to scrapbook and make small books for other people. I also enjoy making all my cards. I opened Scrapbooks & Etc in 2006 and have enjoyed meeting all the creative people in, around and beyond Harrisburg. My customers are the best part of this business. They are very caring, giving and loyal scrapbookers, card makers and crafters.

My name is Amy! I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years but only got into making cards in the past year or so. I have had the privilege of teaching classes at Scrapbooks & Etc for about 2 years now. I am currently doing a monthly class using different techniques each month. I have always lived in NC. I have two very active boys so I have lots of opportunity to take a ton of pictures. Needless to say, I am way behind in my family scrapbooks! But I love learning and trying new techniques.

My name is Wendy. I’ve enjoyed scrapbooking for 9 or 10 years now. My husband and I travel quite a bit so most of my scrapbooks are of our travels or of trips I’ve taken with my sister-in-law. In addition, I’ve enjoyed making personalized recipe scrapbooks for my grandmother, mother-in-law & sister-in-law. Family is very important to me and I enjoy being “the cool aunt” to 3 nephews and 1 niece. I have 2 dogs and one really old cat. I love to cook and entertain friends and family.

My name is Becky and I have been stamping and making cards for a little over two years. I have made some scrapbooks and am currently working on one for me about my ancestry but my first love is stamping! I began teaching card classes at Scrapbooks & Etc. about 1-1/2 years ago and the ladies that take my classes keep me on my toes. I was born in Albemarle and have lived in North Carolina all of my life. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children and four grandchildren. I love spending time with my family, going to the beach, and of course stamping and making cards. You can also visit me at my blog!
