Elayne Forgie

Wellington, FL

Hi! My name is Elayne and I’m the founder of Stampin’ Chicks! I’ve been scrapbooking, memory keeping, stamping, and paper crafting for almost 30 years. I’ve spent most of my adult life working with families who have loved ones living with Alzheimer’s disease. My monthly Scrapbook Circle™ gives my clients a chance to come together to create, share and find support and friendship with others on a similar journey. My husband and I have 3 amazing children and a brand-new grandson! We are also the mommy and daddy to 2 adorable little Yorkies, a cranky old cat, and a sweet little Quaker Parrot. This crew keeps me on my toes and gives me so many reasons to spend my free time preserving our memories and documenting our family stories. Be sure to follow me on social media to stay connected!
