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.

Blessed to have you.........

Good morning! I wanted to pop on here to share with you a shaker card that I made with some of my CDD products.  This is a perfect card to have in your stash.

I was going for a CAS card of sorts which is usually hard for me, however I am happy how this one came out.  I started with the PICTURE FRAME die to make the card base. Next I used the SHAKER TAG DIES to make the shaker tag in the middle.

I wanted to use the SCRIBBLE CIRCLE dies as my center and turn that into the shaker window so I had to free hand the cut out with my Xacto knife.  I did two layers on the Scribble circle so it would have a base underneath. I turned this into my shaker window and added some of those gorgeous flowers from the BOTANICAL LAYERS stamp set and popped them up a bit with some foam tape. This was the first time I used my INKTENSE pencils.  I love them but need to learn how to use them.  I finished the card off by adding the BLESSED sentiment from the GREETING WORD dies, and a flag banner from the FLAG BANNER dies stamped with a sentiment from the coordinating TINY SENTIMENT stamp set. This is the type of card you can mass produce while using up some of your scraps!

Thank you for stopping by my Blog today and for taking a moment out of your busy day and sharing it with me.  

Have a great day!
