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 JUST FOR MOM stamp set.

Here's my project I've created for you...




I think it is safe to say I am not the only one who has a pile of scrap paper they don't want to get rid of.  Well while I was making the projects for this release I had a bunch of paper (and it was my "good" paper mind you) that I had left over but they were on the small side.  I didn't want to toss them and thought to myself...hmmm you could make something out of them!  So I played around with the oval die and turned the smaller pieces into a flower! If the piece was big enough I cut the oval in half to get two petals, and if it wasn't I just simply ran it halfway thru the machine to get the size of the oval that fit the paper.  The leaf die is a fantastic way to use up the smaller pieces of scrap paper.  I popped the flower up with some SU! Dimensionals. I wanted to try and show a different way to use the dies and stamp set.  The leaves are from the Just BugCause die set that will be released soon.

These are the dies that I used.  I can't tell you enough how amazing these are and ooohhh so useful and handy!





Be sure to join us tomorrow for another great new stamp set.
