Hi I’m Debbi although I’m better known as Wiccababe….I live on the NE coast of Scotland with my partner, 3 kids: ,Scott (11), Willow (6) and Faith (4),  2 cats and cavalier puppy.
I started papercrafting after my youngest daughter was born because I wanted to make unique baby books for my kids – needless to say this is still a work in progress because I discovered rubber-stamping and promarkers in 2009. I am now one of Letraset’s new Product Coaches which means I get to use, teach  and show others how to make the most of their Letraset products – my dream job....to do what I love and love what I do.
