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 APRIL RELEASE BLOG HOP

Welcome to the CDD April Product Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase HERE.









Melon Drop

Moonlit Kisses

Violet Flicker



Here's what I've created for you...


I made this set of cards by randomly stamping and embossing one of the flowers from the Botanical Layers flower stamp set in white.  I shaded in the flowers a little bit to make them pop a little.  I used the tag die from MIX IT UP as well as the PICTURE FRAME die to create the base of the card. To make the edge of the banner fit the shape of the picture frame die I ran the banner thru with the picture frame die. 

I used the HELLO sentiment from the POCKET PIECES HELLO die set as well as the SORRY from the new WISHFUL THOUGHTS dies.  I did cut out several layers of each using the blue left over scraps and topped it with a melon colored card stock ( I hate wasting anything...lol). My deepest sympathy sentiment came from the WISHFUL THOUGHTS stamp set.  I love this set! Has so many great sentiments in a awesome selection of sizes.

To finish the card off I took some Doodlebug Sprinkles and scattered them on the cards.  I made a total of three cards with one sheet of card stock (not including the bases).  This was a great way to make a bunch of cards at once!  This is a normal 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card so you can see how big the PICTURE FRAME die is!!! Plus it is double stitched!!
