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.

Hot Cocoa slider gifts

Hey y'all! Do you need a quick, fun and inexpensive gift idea to make for the holidays?  I made a bunch of these to hand out as small gifts during the holidays.  These are hot cocoa slider gifts and can easily be massed produced.  I made about 15 of these but only included 3 in the picture so you could at least get a good look at the details.

I used the large stitched circle from the newly released Stitched in Circle dies for the center. I embossed the sentiment from Get Your Jingle on first in black. Then I randomly stamped some snowflakes from the new CHILLY set in white craft ink, then sprinkled on some iridescent embossing powder. 

 To give it some added pop I sprayed and dabbed some Tim Holtz Distress sprays in silver and white. I did crimp the top and bottom of the holder with my Crimping tool but it is hard to see in the picture. 

You simply pull up the tab and out pops the pack of hot cocoa! A cute way to dress up really any sort of treat or small gift. 

Thanks for popping in today, I sure hope you enjoyed my little project I shared with you.

Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
