About Me

I’m Deb Hoekstra, the creative force behind BeeBug Creations. I have been a passionate crafter for over 20 years. In 2009, I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator to pursue what I love, teaching, inspiring, and encouraging others through sharing creative card making and rubber stamping ideas and techniques. I think creating handmade cards, gifts, and other paper craft projects is a fun way to express yourself or bring friends together. Whether you’re viewing an online tutorial, or experiencing one of my local events in the Apple Valley, MN area, my goal is to provide you with all the information and encouragement needed to help you successfully complete your project.

Shop my online store for your favorite papercrafting and rubber stamping products, or schedule your own Stampin’ Up! party with me to earn free Stampin’ Up! gifts.  When you purchase the Stampin’ Up! brand from me, you not only get high quality rubber stamping and papercrafting supplies, you also get me! I strive to provide excellent customer service and am available for questions and support long after the products have been purchased.

For more information about my crafting classes, tutorials, or Stampin’ Up! products, please feel free to contact me by phone (952) 432-4023 or by email.


So you may be asking, “how did the name BeeBug come about?”

When I became a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, I was looking for a business name that was creative, personal and unique to me. BeeBug is a combination of my name, Debbie, meaning “bee”, and our Westie dog, Ladybug, who we lovingly called “bug”. Ladybug is no longer with us, but she is remembered every time I see my business name.

Spread the love!
