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.

Recipe gift box

I was so happy when I got my Cameo that I could finally do a Recipe box from SVG ATTIC's Kiss the Cook set.  I did one before but it was smaller.  It is super easy to assemble and what is even better I completed the look with the RECIPE CARD stamp set from Shabby Chic Stamps.  This makes a great gift for someone you know who likes to bake or is getting married.  You can fill it with some of your favorite recipes.  The papers I used are from Basic Grey.


  1. love this Lisa!! so glad you got your Cameo:-)

  2. awesome box! would you happen to have any tips to put this box together, i have it all cut out and can't seem to get it together!
