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.

Feeling the Love over at the Sisterhood

Good morning everyone.  I don't know about where you live but it is the coldest day of the winter yet here!  I have been making it without a coat up until yesterday.  BRRRRRRR...

I had the luxury of hosting the latest challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  The challenge was to use hearts on your project.  I didn't want to do both with a Valentine's Day theme so I switched it up a bit.  I am entering this card into the PKS Teddy bear 3D challenge.

For my first project I simply layered some tags that I resized and made wider from SVG Cuts Double Tags file.  I then topped it with one of their freebies, Cecile the Valentine Bear.  I of course had to stamp it with a Peachy Keen face stamp.  The sentiment, hair and face are from the January Stamp of the month kit.  I used my Prismacolor pencils to give him some color.

Next I pulled out of one of my old Market Street Stamps kits that they sadly did away with.  I loved them!! I didn't use a stamp I simply just cut the jar out of one of the sheets of paper that came with the kit.  Then I took one of the die cuts and put it on card stock to finish it off.  A simple and easy card that is essential for anybody's card stash.

I hope you stop on by the Sisterhood and show us what's inside your heart :)

  10. Both of your cards are wonderful! Congrats on winning at Scrappy Moms Stamps.

    You asked how I made the hidden tag. I put a pocket to the back of the card front and then adhered the card front to the card base. If you read the instructions that should help, along with the photos.
