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.

Showing some Fatherly Love

Good morning everyone!  Today is a new challenge/Linky Party starting over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  To be honest when I saw the theme my stomach was in knots.  I don't know why but I tend to struggle with masculine cards.  Do you use ribbon? Or is that to girly? Do you use buttons or is that to girly...etc. etc.  However once I started going on this card it just flowed together so easily.  To me, that shows that CDD has amazing stuff!! For me to easily conquer something I am not good at says a lot about a product.

This card is a pretty big card, 6x6 in size.  When you open it the HAPPY FATHER'S DAY sentiment pops out.  Really fun and different.  The base of the card is from SVG CUTS Day with Dad kit but I changed some things about it to fit what I needed.  I fell in love with the colors and patterns of this masculine paper so I decided to design it around that.  I took the stars from the background and decided to bring that forward by using the stars from the BANNER DIE set.  I embossed the sentiment on the front in white is from SENDING LOVE.  For the bottom I used the Doodlebug Birthday Girl Sprinkles since they matched the closest.  

The inside of the card when opened.

When you open it up I added the smaller banner die as well as the oval die.  On the oval die I stamped another sentiment from Sending Love and added some hearts from Sew Raggedy stamp set.  It is hard to see in the picture but there are many layers that are popped up for dimension.  I am in love with the new black foam squares Craftin' Desert Divas now carries.  I am in awe of the sturdiness and quality of them. If you are not aware, Craftin Desert Divas now carries a wonderful line of craft supplies.  It is so convenient to get items in one place especially since I don't have those type of things for sale by me.

I sure hope you come on by and play along with our Father's Day Linky Party.  Have a great day!
