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 favorite color combo

Hey y'all!  Today over at Craftin' Desert Divas there is a new linky party that starts today. The theme is your FAVORITE COLOR COMBO. I fell in love with the DOODLEBUG HIP HIP HOORAY paper pad. 

I normally would love more neutral colors, but lately in the last year or two I have been loving lots of bright colors. The colors in this paper pad are just adorable. I love, love, love these colors together. They are so fun and bright!!

Recently CDD released these dies called PARTY DIES. OMG, they are so flipping cool!! I am always in need of birthday cards and thanks to these dies it makes it super quick and easy. I was in awe of how neat and clean the dies cut the tiny strings and bows for the balloons. There is no way that your machine would cut something so small so clean. Plus these dies let you use up your scraps!!
I popped up some of the balloons with Foam tape to give them some dimension. I used the FANCY FRAMES dies to cut out all the layers. The sentiment came from the BRING ON THE CAKE stamp set.



  1. Very, very awesome card, Lisa! I love all the colors and patterned papers you used.

  2. This is such a fabulous card! LOVE your color combo Lisa!! :)
