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 Rain or Shine stamp set.

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




Here is another card to help me on my mission to use up my scraps!  I ran some white paper thru my Cuttlebug in my Swiss Dots folder.  Then used a couple different TH distressing inks to ink up the different layers. Using smaller scraps I extended the bottom of the banner die.  To turn the oval die into a shaker card I used my 2"x 1 3/8" oval punch.  I added some of the newly added sequins to the center.  For this one I used the ones called Heartbreaker. I colored the adorable chick with my markers and paper pieced the umbrella with some of my scraps.  I also popped up the top layer with some dimensionals.


Heartbreaker Sequins




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