About Me

Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

I'm in total and complete LOVE!

Okay for those who know me know I love to bake.  So when I saw this set from SVGAttic.com I just went bonkers!!! The new set is called KISS THE COOK and if you click on picture you will be brought to the SVG ATTIC store.  Or you can click on the link below.  I can't wait to play with the whole set but I wanted to share with you my first project making the oven.  I thought it would be cute to do instead of a card for someone who is having a baby and put a gift card in it so that is what I did. I took the numbers from Shabby Chic Stamp Co.'s Build a Cake set and used them to stamp in the time.  A cute idea would be for the time to put the persons birthday day, wedding date, due date etc etc. These could be favor boxes for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays and/or party favors for any occasion.  Maybe you just want to send a little sweet gift to someone.  Well this box comes with a cupcake insert!!! Yay baby!!  I will be posting some more pics this week of my projects using this kits.  You know that recipe box would make such cute gifts for teachers or family.

This is what I made with the Kiss The Cook set.
The sentiment is from the GREETINGS stamp set.  I used a paper punch from Stampin' Up! to get the matting for the sentiment.

The door opens and inside you can put a note, a cupcake or a gift card.  Whatever strikes your fancy.
