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.

CDD Daily Post

Good Morning! Today is my day over at CRAFTIN' DESERT DIVAS to share some crafty inspiration.

 I wanted to share the adorable card I made using Craftin' Desert Divas  TISSUE TIME stamp set with you all here as well.

First I used the band aid that is by itself and stamped it randomly to make a background design.  I colored them in with my Spectrum Noir and Wink of Stella Markers.  Next I cut my paper to fit over the front of the card and used the "hill" looking stitched die and flipped it so it would create a nested window of sorts.  

It is hard to see in the photo but I adhered both sides of the card front to a strip of acetate (from my SHAKER BUNDLE)  so that the background I stamped showed would be visible.  Then I stamped the mouse and sentiment, coloring them in again with my markers.

 I used the foam tape from the bundle to pop up the top front of the card for dimension.  Doodlebug WINTER ASSORTMENT Sprinkles were added to the corners for a little bling.

I love using a CDD stamp to make my own background paper.  I hope you take a stab at it yourself, and if you do, make sure to share it on the CDD Facebook Gallery page so we all can see!

Have a great day, and as always HAPPY CRAFTING!
