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.

No Stamps allowed!

I never would of thought that I would have so much fun with this challenge!  Over at the Sisterhood of Crafters we are hosting another super fun challenge to help you get to using your stash!  For the next two weeks we want to see what you can create using no stamps at all.  Yep, no rubber, acrylic or Digital stamps allowed.  I grabbed my scraps and this package of K&Company die cuts that I had bought on clearance for like $1.99 ions ago but I tend to forget about them.  I simply just looked for things that would work and made these two cards.  There are probably at least over 100 more die cuts in there so I could of just kept on going.  I would of been able to make quite a bit of cards for under $5.00.  It was fun but I had to make myself stop or I would of bored you to death with pictures.

This is what I came up with:

Now lets see what you can dig up in your craft room!  Don't forget to share it with us at the Sisterhood so we all can be inspired!
