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 BUGCAUSE stamp set.

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


I wanted to show a different way to use the stamps as well as the dies.  First I double embossed the card front and put score marks to make the center section.  Then I cut out a bunch of the leaves with the die that comes with the Bugcause die set as well as the flowers.  One of the things I love the most about these dies is the ability to use up your scraps, even the smallest pieces.  I stacked a couple of sheets high and it cut thru them all with no problem. I just laid them out and glued them down as I went to go around the sentiment "Sorry to see you Leaf".

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

Here's today's free pattern:
