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.

Make It Sparkle

Good morning!  Today starts a new Linky Party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The theme is "Make it Sparkle". I have been having a blast making my own backgrounds with different techniques. For this card I used some of my Tim Holtz distress inks to make an Ombre' sort of background on some watercolor paper.  

I used my Fancy Frame dies to cut out my top layer of the card.  I stamped the trail of stars using the large bunch of stars stamp from Bitty Blessing a couple of times so it would go off the top layer onto the bottom layer.  I colored those in with some Stickles for a little bling.  

Then I used the sentiment from Tis' the Season and embossed that in silver. To give the card a bit more of a "pop" I put some scor-tape on the back of white cardstock and ran it thru my Cuttlebug with the stitched star die from the Banner die set. 

 After I ran it thru I peeled off the scor tape and covered it  in glitter for some extra sparkle.  The card is not the traditional type of Christmas/Holiday card but that was my intention, I wanted to try something different then I usually do.

I hope you pop on over to the Craftin' Desert Divas blog to play along with the "Make it Sparkle" linky party.
