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.

CDD Two of Tuesday daily post

Hello everyone.  Today is a special Two for Tuesday post over at CDD.  Two for Tuesday is a post where two designers pick one stamp and and both design a project so you can see the many ways one stamp set can be used.

Tara (the owner of CDD) and I are both using the stamp, PANDA PALS.

To make this card I used the masking technique to stamp a group of pandas as well as the stalks of the bamboo in the background. I simply flipped each small segment up and down to get the different patterns of the bamboo shoots (making leaves go left to right).  I also used the clouds and sun from The Sky is the Limit

To color the images in I used my Winsor & Newton markers to color the images in as well as some Wink of Stella markers to add some glitter. Glossy Accents were added to the eyes and paws which is hard to see in the photo, but in person it really makes it pop. The images were so cute I wanted to keep them the focus of the card so I kept it simple.  To accomplish my clean cut card I used my scalloped die from Fancy Frames and several layers of designer paper.
