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.

There is a link to this free SVG pattern somewhere in today's hop lineup. 

Today I have created for you this cute little card that I created by using the Tag It SVG and welding it together to form the base.  First I did an offset of the original svg.  Then I welded those two images together to make the card.  Then I took the Tag stamp for the front, and kept the original tag svg as a inside layer to write on.  I used the Valentine stamp from the Celebrations Wordart set that could be found HERE.

On the inside I stamped the January Freebie stamp that will be available with purchase.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color it in.


1. Craftin Desert Divas- 1 stamp each day.
2. Too Cute by Jessica - $25. gift card for regularly-priced patterns.
