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 go Wild!

Good morning y'all!

I am here today to share with you a box card I created using some of my CDD stamps.  I got this paper from their new Craft Supplies section, it is called Hip, Hip, Hooray by Doodlebug.  I just ADORE this color combination.

 I sized the circle and offset it to fit the monkey from the It's All About Zoo stamp set. I used the TAG IT stamp set for the label that I put the sentiment on.  I found a style of the number 5 that I liked and welded it onto the pieces that make up the middle. The base of the box is one of the plain boxed cards that came with the Box Card SVG Kit from SVG CUTS. I welded the elements into it and altered the box to fit my needs.

To add some bling to it, I used the matching DoodleBug Birthday Boy Sprinkles. Next I took the STAR from the Banner dies set and glued them in various places. The White Sakura Gel pen always is something I tend to use to add a bit of dimension to my projects. For coloring the images I used my Spectrum Noir & Wink of Stella markers.  You can't really see it in the pictures but the leaves and balloons are glittery.

This is a picture of it laying flat. Don't you just love that color combo?? It is fabulous!

Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
