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.

Shut the Front Door!!!!

Good morning my crafty friends! I am here with you today to share  a project I made for today's daily post over on the CDD blog.  

I had to use this stamp sentiment since it is one of my all time favorite sayings!! LOL  Shut the front door!!! And now I have it in a stamp form thanks to Tara!

To make this card I used some distress inks to create the background on watercolor paper.  Next I used the PICTURE FRAME die to cut out the base with the2 of the FANCY STITCHED SCALLOP dies nestled in the center.  This is where my magnetic platform comes in handy on my Big Shot!  I used the same configuration to cut out two layers of craft foam to fit the shape of my die combo. For the window I used some acetate sheets that I cut out with my PICTURE FRAME die so I can glue it to the front in order to make my shaker card.  The sentiments all came from the new WISHFUL THOUGHTS stamp set which I embossed in black. I filled the center with some PIZAZZ sequins mixed with a little FAIRY DUST sequins. To finish it off I used some silver glitter paper with my star die from POCKET PIECES HELLO.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed my little project I shared with you all.
