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.

Tag you're it!

There is another fun challenge going on over at the Sisterhood of Crafters with the theme of TAG YOU'RE It!  Make a project with a tag on it or the project itself is a tag.  Then link it up and play along!  There is some fun inspiration to get you started on the Sisterhood blog from the DT as well as our new Step-Sisters. Make sure to stop on by and leave them some blog love!

I made a little box and filled it with 6 tags that I turned into gift card holders (see pic below). I got both files from the Silhouette store. I then used the newly released SNOW MUCH LOVE set from KaDoodle Bug Designs for the images.  I never worked with clip art until recently and I just love, love, love it!  I altered the larger snowman/woman to fit the front of each tag.  Then I took three of the smaller images to make a panel for the front of each box.  I made 6 boxes with 6 tags in each box. I distressed everything with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. I thought these would make cute gifts for the holidays.  Or you can tie them to a small gift or the tree with a gift card on the back.  And you don't even have to put a gift card in it, you can put a piece of cardstock in the slot and write a message on the back.  I just fell in love with those adorable Snowman from Trina Clark.  I am so happy that I can get them in other forms at KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I am working on a larger project that I will share with you once it is done.

Now...Tag you're it...See ya at the Sisterhood!
