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 #4 CDD Sneak Peeks Enchanted Wishes

Today is Day 4 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 ENCHANTED WISHES.

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

I created this card based off a card I saw on Youtube.  The original one I saw you could find HERE. But I used the Banner Die to make the front flap part (yellow).  Next I used the new Tag die for the front cut that Olaf is on.  What I did was ran it halfway thru my Cuttlebug and removed it.  I flipped the die around, lined it up and ran it halfway thru again.  The end result was a tag that had mirrored ends with the same design. I shaded him in with my SPectrum Noir markers as well as accented him with my Wink of Stella markers.  I used the newly added Birthday Girl Doodlebug Sprinkles to embellish the front.

This is how it looks when it is opened up. I put some post it note paper on the bottom and right side of the corner so I could stamp the snowman to make him look like he was popping out of the corner.  The Birthday Hugs sentiment came from the CDD Bring on the Cake stamp set.  I think it is a perfect sentiment to go with Olaf since he is always giving "hugs"! lol

 All links to the products I used are down below.
