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.

Today we are showcasing the BITTY BLESSINGS & SEW RAGGEDY.

Here's what I've created for you.....


I made a criss cross card and took the SVG for the star stamps and welded the two images together to make the card part.  Then cut out another SVG of the stars to layer on top of that and colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I also used them to color the baby and the SVG for the sentiment.  Then I added some Stickles to the stars.



For this project I used the Sew Raggedy stamp set.  I actually made a bunch of these little 3x3 cards using my envelope punch board.  It is a great way to use up your scraps!! I added some color to the spool with my Spectrum Noir Markers.  All 6 that I made were using my scraps, even the card bases!!
