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.

Mini Album key rings

Hey everyone! Today I am happy to share with you some projects I made using my CDD stamps. These days your Shopping list grows longer and your wallet grows smaller! So I came up with a super cute and fun gift to give someone using paper and some CDD stamps!

First I opened my TAG IT svg's and did an offset with the file (so I could have a backing).  For each tag I cut out two pieces of cardstock and glued them back to back.  Then I adhered designer paper on each side in order to make it double sided.  You can make this album as big or as small as you want or need.  I picked the larger stamp out of the Tag It stamp set for the front cover on each of the albums.  Then I picked out two sentiments from Capture These Moments that worked perfectly (I offset them as well to get the layers of matting).

I left one of the albums with no ribbon to show some variation to what you could do.  Since I used so many layers for each page of the album they are VERY sturdy!!

The fun part about this is you can totally personalize these with so many different colors and themes.  It's a small gift with a lot of meaning! 

Hope you all have a great day, and HAPPY CRAFTING!!
