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.

Day #2 Little Super Star sneak peeks

Today is Day 2 of the sneak peeks for the May stamp release at Craftin Desert Divas. We have 5 new stamp sets and 2 die sets.

Today we are showcasing Little Super Star stamp set.

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

This is a gift card holder I made and attached a shaker card to the front.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color her in.  I turned the front panel into a shaker card and embossed on the outside of the acetate.  I used three different colors of sequins to give a nice color blend to it.  The stars are from the banner dies set. CDD now carries shaker card bundles which I used to make this set.  It awesome because the bundles include the acetate sheets as well as the tape you need.  There is also a bundle that includes your choice of 2 packages of sequins!!

 All links to the products I used are down below.

This is the back of the gift card holder (which is from SVG ATTIC).
