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.

Shabby Chic Thursdays!

Good afternoon everybody!  I have to keep this brief due to some severe shoulder pain but hopefully that will be better real soon.  Today is my day to share with you some projects I made using my stamps from Shabby Chic Stamps Company.

I love to cook and I am always in my kitchen.  People are constantly asking me for recipes so I came up with this to send it to them in a pretty card.  They can even keep it in there so they know where it came from.  All I did was take an A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) card and cut it in half on the front flap in a diagonal.  This made it into a criss cross card without wasting any paper. After I put the paper on the card I thought the blue paper needed a bit more of a pop so I took several of the word stamps from the RECIPE CARD collection and stamped it in different ways all over the paper.  The of course I used the main big stamp to make up the recipe card.  This is such a lovely way to pass down a recipe and I am sure whoever you give it to will be thrilled.

Next I used the BUILD A BABY set and the SWEET PEA set to make the main image on this card. My cousins wife is expecting a baby girl soon and so I made this with her in mind.  I of course had to give her little earrings.  I paper pieced her onesis as well as her hair.

Enabler ALERT!! LOL Here are some new stamps released from Shabby Chic Stamp Company that will be shipping mid April.
