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.

Keepin' It Cool

Good morning y'all!  Today is the second week of the "Keepin' It Cool" Linky Party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  I wanted to share with you my project I made for the challenge.

I used a ton of the CDD dies to make this card.  Gotta tell ya, I am in LOVE with these dies!! They are so darn useful and certainly helpful.



I broke out my SHAKER BUNDLE  and my DOODLEBUG SUNKISSED paper pad and came up with a plan. I wanted to make an Ocean scene with a tank like appearance (the acetate).  It is hard to see in the photo but the white card stock on top is embossed with a wave like pattern.  I picked up this awesome deep blue glitter cardstock and cut several layers of the waves out from the Outdoor Landscape dies.  Next I broke out my UNDER THE SEA stamp set as well as the matching UNDER THE SEA DIES and made a little scene.  All of the images were colored with my Spectrum Noir markers as well as some Wink of Stella brushes.

The Shaker Bundle comes with foam tape so I used that to give the card several layers and some height.  I also used FANCY FRAMES DIES, TAG ESSENTIALS DIES, and BANNER DIES to make up the rest of the elements in this card.  Glossy Accents was used to top off the bubbles on the sentiment layer.
