About Us

Welcome to Triple-T Designs. Triple-T Designs is committed to bringing you the best and most innovative products in the Scrapbooking industry and beyond.

Who are the Triple-T’s?

T-1 Tamara, has been involved in the craft industry for over 30 years. She is a published craft designer as well as a trained artist. The Basic Bear paper piecing line and idea books are her brain child and handiwork.

T-2 Theresa Irene was a banker and lifetime crafter. Driven by her motivation to be a full time scrapbooker instead of a banker, she committed to starting her own line of products. Teaming up with Tamara to give birth to The Basic Bear made her dreams a reality. Theresa Irene, a published scrapbook artist, uses her outstanding customer service skills, her scrapbooking experience and her expertise with banking to contribute to this unique corporation.

T-3 Tiffany was a restauranteur. Introduced to scrapbooking at a Creative Memories party, she fell in love with the hobby. Her two small boys were her main motivation for giving up the 7 day a week “restaurant” life. They were also the motivation for creating a portable organizational tool, which will allow you to scrap at the kitchen table until 5 and then serve dinner at that same table at 5:05.

Scrapbooking tied them all together.

The common bond between these three women was their love of scrapbooking, not to mention the fact that they are mother and two daughters.

In 2002 the growth of Basic Bear and the introduction of TheScrapRack required more space than anyone’s garage or basement had available. Triple-T made the move from a home-based business to offices and a warehouse in downtown Tacoma, Washington. Stop in to say “Hi” if you’re ever in our neighborhood. The office address is 4037 South Union Avenue, Tacoma, WA and we are open Monday – Thursday 7am-4pm.

Our mailing address is PO Box 1256, Tacoma, WA 98401-1256. You can also reach us by email at CustomerService@TheScrapRack.com  or by phone at 253-284-9200.
