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.

Welcome to Day 2 of Craftin Desert Divas September stamp release! Each day we will be giving you a sneak peek at two of the six new stamp sets. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, we will have a blog hop with prizes each day. There are some amazing creations being shared today during this stamp release. We also have some special guest designers who will be joining us. 

Today we are showcasing the Ghostly Greetings and Wonderfully Wicked stamp sets. I am using the Ghostly Greetings as well as a special stamp for my project.

We have (6) 4x6 stamp sets.
Made in the USA.
Stamps will be available to order on Saturday.

We hope you will stop by the Craftin Desert Divas Shop and the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery Facebook group. We would love for you to join us and share your creations with us using Craftin Desert Diva's stamps. In this group we first show previews, have giveaways and much more!

I fell in love with this sentiment the moment I saw it so I knew I would have to use that one. I absolutely love the SVG's that come with these stamps.  It makes things so much easier for me.  The sentiment is from the Ghostely Greetings stamp set that I am showcasing today and the spider....well you will have to tune in to find out about him!  To make him more "bug eyed" (no pun intended) I added googly eyes to him. This awesome and fun hat is from SVG Cuts Halloween kit which you can find HERE. The top of the hat comes off so you can stuff it with goodies or leave it like I have it as a decor piece. You would think it would be hard to put together due to the shape but it is not at all!

Here is a close up of the sentiment.
