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.

Winter Treat boxes

Hello CDD Fans!  I am here to share with you some treat boxes I made using the adorable images from Craftin' Desert Divas "WINTER TREATS" stamp set. 

These are sized perfectly to color making it easy and fun to create the different holiday heads that are included in this set.

The treat boxes are from SVG Cut's Carousel Ride SVG Kit.  I changed the theme and a few elements for it to fit my needs.  One of the things I love about this file is that you can make two boxes from one sheet of 12x12 paper! The scalloped circles are from Silhouette and were either a freebie or they came with the software for my Cameo.

 I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers and added some Stickles as well as some Glossy Accents to add some dimension.  

I also took advantage of the SVG's that come with these stamps.  I have to tell you when you are designing a project on your software those come in so handy because it helps you design the project around your stamp, NO more guessing!

You can buy "Winter Treats" stamp set HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Happy Crafting!!
