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 Blog Hop Day #2

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

We also offer SVG stamp outlines for .99 they work perfectly with your cutting machine. You must have a program that opens these files. This is a great alternative to coordinating dies and much less expensive. 

New $1.00 sequins....

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

Now who doesn't need THANK YOU cards in their stash?? My idea was to make a couple at a time, have them flat and mailable as well as cheery!  I also wanted to make some cards that didn't include coloring for those who don't color that much.  

I started out cutting several flags from the Flag Banner die set in various paper designs.  This is where double sided paper or using up your scraps come in handy. I simply layered them altering the colors and then using the stitched circle die from Stitched In Circle die set to form my center circle.  For the bottom layer I used the new Crazy stitched Frame dies.  Nestled in the center is the THANKS die from the new GREETING WORD dies.  After adhering this to the center I did run it thru my Big Shot again, it kinda smooshed it into the background making it look like it was part of the paper.

Just a fun, easy, and great way to mass produce super fun Thank you cards...hmmm maybe I need to send one to Tara to Thank her for such a great release!!! lol
