About Me

My photo
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.

Shabby Chic Stamps March Release Blog Hop

Welcome to our celebration hop of the newly released stamp sets from Shabby Chic Stamps.  If you came here from Jessica's blog then you are right on track. If not, you can click HERE to start over at the beginning.  The hop runs thru Sunday.  Many of the DT members will be posting new projects everyday to give you lots of eye candy.  I don't know about you, but I love to see what other people create.  It gets my creative juices flowing.

Before I share with you my projects I wanted to share with you a picture of all the stamp sets included in the hop.  They are on sale until March 15th if you order the bundle.  Click HERE for more details.

I came up with these projects today using just my scraps and I LOVE how they came out.  Today I am showcasing the new GREETINGS set.  I will be posting different projects Saturday and Sunday as well.  Tomorrow I will be using the Build a Cake set.
 Here is a set of 6 3x3 cards that I made.  The butterfly is from the EASTER BLESSING set.
 A close up of each one of the cards that are included in this set.
 I packaged them up in a cello bag and made a quick tag.  Used another sentiment from the Greetings set on the tag.  This would make a cute hostess gift or a little thank you for somebody to show your appreciation.
This card was made with scraps that were left over from my bird house I posted for the SVG ATTIC blog hop (also today!).  I have to trim my paper to fit on my Silhouette mat and these stripes were left over...I couldn't throw them out because I LOVE the paper!  The pic for some reason came out kinda BLAH sorry about that!  The Congratulations from the Greeting set is stamped onto a label die from Spellbinders. 

Now hop on over to Jennifer's blog to see what they have in store for you.
