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.

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

For my first project I made an easel card using three dies from the Banner Die set 
and Just for Mom.

For this card I used the large banner die to make the shaped card.  Then I used the  Rain Or Shine set to stamp some random rain drops and puddle splashes ( I used Stickles on both to give them a little bling).  To get the puddle I used my markers and drew it by hand, then topped it with Glossy Accents. For the adorable little girl with the umbrella I did some paper piecing as well as coloring her in with my Spectrum Noir markers. 


Last but not least I made a shaker card with the Just BugCause stamp set. To get the sentiment the way I wanted it, I simply combined several of the sentiments from the stamp set. Don't forget, there is a special good for today only on the Bug stamp set and Die bundle!! Trust me, you will love it!!

 The butterfly at top is actually popping out of the card (attached to the card base).  I used my dies to do this (similar technique to my Treat topper I made the other day) then cut out another one to put on top which I colored. I stamped the swirly thing on the card stock below and the die for the top layer.  And to make the shaker card extra cute I used the new TWINKLE Sequins which you can find HERE.





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


We have a new lineup and freebie for tomorrow's hop.
