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.

Tis' The Season

For the next couple of days over at the CDD Blog we will be showcasing the Tis' The Season stamp set.  Today was my day over at the blog to share what I created.

This is the stamp set we will be showcasing.

This is a larger 5x7 stamp set filled with a bunch of wonderful and essential holiday sentiments.  I love the selection of so many different sayings in all these great fonts. I love having this set in my stamp collection! And don't be afraid to cut some of them to make it easier to stamp if needed.

To create this card I used a couple of stamp sets along with the Tis' The Season set.  I have really been loving the masking technique using Post-It note paper. I took the basket from the Farmer's Market stamp set for the base of my tree and masked it off. Then I used the tree from the Chill Out stamp set and stamped my tree.  The sentiment of course came from the Tis' The Season stamp set we will be showcasing for the next couple of days. To finish off the rustic sort of look I used the stitched star die from the Banner die set and some twine. My Winsor & Newton Promarkers were used to color in all my images.

Stop on by the CDD blog for the next couple of days to see what other crafty inspiration the DT has cooked up for you using this set.

Happy Crafting!

Here are the supplies I used:
