About Me

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.

Let's get shakin'!

Good morning!  Craftin' Desert Divas now carries a huge selection of sequins in their shop.  There are so many fun and different styles and sizes to work with.  I was so happy since I can't get anything like that around here where I live.

Here is a picture of the new ones that will be added to the store today.  Check out the awesome deal, buy 4 get one free!  She also has some bundle packs available which will let stock up and save!


I used some papers from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy line to make this card. For the sentiment in the center I used one of the pre-designed journaling type(..lol not sure of the term) that is included in their set.  I turned it into a shaker card by using several of the new sequins that are available starting today at Craftin' Desert Divas online store.  These would even make great confetti to throw on tables or to use in favors at bridal showers etc.  You can see all the sequins available at CDD HERE.

The sentiment I used is from Bitty Blessings which I embossed onto the paper in a blue powder.  To make the banner style cut out on the front of the card I used CDD's BANNER DIES.



A view of it laying down so you can see how it would look when the shaker card was shook or moved up and down.

Here is a list of all the supplies I used from CDD to make this card.
