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.

Say it Big - Gift ideas on a budget

Hello everyone, Lisa B. here today to share with you some great gift ideas using the Craftin' Desert Divas SAY IT BIG stamp set.

Since it is coming upon the Season of Thanks and Christmas I like to have some small gifts to give to people to let them know that I really do appreciate all that they do.  I made myself a template on my SSDE software to cut paper to the size I needed for my clothespins.  I then had some sheets of magnets which I cut up and adhered to the back.  This is a great way to use up scraps! I made a bunch of these in various patterns using the JUST BECAUSE sentiment as well as the Thank you sentiment.

I am only showing one here as not to overload you!




Then I made a folio of sorts that holds 16 Thank you cards and envelopes.  I thought these would make cute gifts to give the the school personnel so they have Thank you cards on hand.  For the tag I simply stamped the sentiment several times and cut the paper to size.  Then I used my ticket corner punch for the corners.

This is one of my favorite "Go-To" stamp sets that comes in handy every time! Thanks for stopping by, Happy Crafting!
