Keepsake Certificates for Miscarried, Stillborn and Aborted Angels

The Kits include:
1-12×12 “Certificate of Love” page
1-12×12 Heaven and Earth page
1 page of Butterfly stickers (50 total)

7 Angel and Baby cut outs
All images within the kit are actual photography, contributing to the reality of our experiences. The pages and cut outs are printed on 80 pound cover stock enabling the kits to be incorporated into other crafts besides scrapbooking.
Miscarried, Aborted, Ectopic and Molar Pregnancy Babies have left us with little or no tangible keepsakes. This mere fact contributes to the devastating feeling and why this loss is considered “Silent Grief” within our community.
The “Certificate of Love” created for mommies and daddies who desire composing their angels’ legacy on paper. There are no birth certificates issued for early pregnancy loss and stillborn babies do not receive a certificate in every state. The MISS foundation is working very hard to make this happen for parents of stillbirth children. The “Certificate of Love” can help you tell the story of your deceased child with the hope of heavenly reunions. Parents may include the babies name, scripture, poems, zodiac signs and elements, special memories and other photographs taken reminiscent of their sweet child in heaven. Handwritten or typed on colored paper, your child has a beautiful story to journal that may have began long before the positive pregnancy test. The season you baby passed or the season your baby was conceived may be an important element to include in your scrapbook pages or memory gardens.
My stillborn son Tanner and 2 early pregnancy loss babies have changed my spirit in a positive light. I want to preserve their stories so my living son will know why I am so happy at certain times and why I cry at others.
The “Certificate of Love” page can be placed beside the Heaven and Earth page within a family scrapbook, or framed, placed in a shadowbox or memory box, decoupaged onto tile or decorative plate. Many butterfly and flower stickers are provided to make other cards and crafts to spread Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness, like handmade ribbons.
“Love Memorials™” can also be created by another family member or friend to honor your baby in their perspective. My sister-in-law created a “Love Memorial™” as an Aunt of an angel. Sympathy gifts are sometimes difficult for pregnancy and baby losses. Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kits can be included within a sympathy basket for those grieving the loss of their babies.
Sympathy gifts for those grieving pregnancy and infant loss are sometimes difficult to select. Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kits can help the bereaved explore in depth how their little angel has kissed their hearts. Communication plays a big role in the healing process and doing an activity together may keep the lines more open and receptive for dialog.
Early pregnancy losses of ectopic and molar pregnancies, miscarriage, aborted babies are your children always and forever in your hearts. Memorials can be composed for them because they existed. No pictures are needed to express love for a child forever in your family. Later losses of stillborn or sudden infant death babies have given us a little more time and most likely pictures, personality and tanglible mementoes to include in our family scrapbook pages.
I believe our little angels are just a cloud away and the kits will provide an outlet for you and your family to create a wonderful tribute for an angel that left too soon.

Grieving families of miscarriage, stillbirths, abortions and other tragic pregnancy losses can create memorial keepsakes and “Love Memorials™” for babies gone too soon, but forever loved. Many bereaved parents have Hope and Faith of being reunited with their angels and do not wish for closure, just acknowledgement of their child’s existence and for being parents of an angel.
The heaven and earth page of the Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kit provides a place to include the entire family, living and deceased. This hopeful page can also encourage you to take the initial steps on your healing journey by recognizing your child and your pain. Other siblings may want to participate in creating the memorial for their brother or sister in heaven. Becky and Casey helped their parents create Londin’s memorial by giving happy and positive adjectives describing him.
The heaven and earth page is one of 5 parts included within the Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kit for parents suffering from pregnancy and baby loss. Families supporting those that have lost a child most often are unsure how to act and what to say. This tragic event often creates stress at one time or another by giving false hope for another pregnancy or minimizing the baby that has died. Families of angels still need acknowledgment that they too are parents and that their baby made a difference. My stillborn son, even though physically not here has given me so many gifts.
Gifts are not always tangible or purchased, they can be a love undying and never challenged.
When my son Tanner was stillborn, the thought of heaven and seeing him again was my complete obsession. I attended several bible studies of various denominations to hear the wisdom and hope of cradling my sweet children again. These facts were all found in the Bible. I have located several scriptures giving me hope of that wonderful reunion someday.
2 Samuel 12:23 “I will go to him, but he will not return to me.”
A very precious and unique “Love Memorial™” can be composed for a family of an angel. Please explore the many ways Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kits can be personalized for a little baby gone too soon in the Remembrance Gallery and Scrapbooking for Bereaved Families.
The pages can be framed, decoupaged onto tile or plates, placed into a shadowbox or family scrapbook. The kit was intended to be included within family books and rooms, acknowledging everyone. This is a subtle way to spread Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness, starting in the home where an angel was conceived. If your little baby was aborted, your pages could be kept in a special and private place for your personal reflection.
Each of the 2-12inch by 12 inch pages are proudly printed in the USA on semi-gloss, 80 pound cover stock paper. This durable paper enables the memorial pages to be included in other crafts besides, scrapbooking. All images within the kit are actual photographs contributing to the reality of our experiences.
Surround yourself with supportive family and friends to help you walk this journey with a shoulder to lean on. All babies lost from miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, abortion are still babies that had a special moment in time with us, maybe touching our hearts years later. If it’s not with a Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kit, remember your child someway in a peaceful and loving vision through poetry, journaling, drawings or another art form to capture how special your little angel will always be in your life.
Hope is what we will always have and I believe my angels are just a cloud away.

Every year more than 26,000 American women and 4.5 million women worldwide will deliver a stillborn baby. Miscarriage statistics are even more dramatic reportedly occurring in 20 percent of all pregnancies. Diana Gardner-Williams, a landscape designer from Liberty, North Carolina is a mother who has experienced this significant loss and knows the pain is immeasurable and very real. After experiencing both prenatal loss and a stillborn birth of her son, Tanner, Gardner-Williams found solace through creative activities, such as scrapbooking and journaling that allowed her to express her grief. However, she realized there were no craft making art supplies available to help mothers memorialize infant loss. To fill this void, Gardner-Williams created Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kits, a new, unique, and creative craft making kit for parents and families to acknowledge prenatal and infant loss. They provide a healing and therapeutic outlet for parents to express grief and loss, while also creating a lasting keepsake of their children. Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kits can be used for a variety of creative crafts, including scrapbooking, journaling and creating keepsakes such as shadow boxes and framed pictures. Each kit contains exclusive designs of angels, clouds, butterflies and Heaven symbolizing hope for parents that may not have a picture of their baby. These kits contain a variety of stickers, die-cuts and inspiring scrapbook pages to create a memorial. “The kits are a wonderful idea for a sympathy gift during a difficult time when friends and family are uncertain on how to acknowledge the loss beyond the traditional flowers and cards” says Gardner-Williams. “Losing a child is the worst experience for a parent to endure. However, my children changed my life for the better and I wanted to document that fact.” says Gardner-Williams. Creating a tribute for a child that left too soon can aid families in their healing journey and provide a “place” to put their grief. Her company was founded on the belief that our loved ones will always be a part of our lives and our reunions with them are “just a cloud away”. Gardner-Williams also created the Web site, www.justacloudaway.com, as an online resource for grieving parents. The Web site has “Love Notes”, a blog about her experiences, suggestions on creating different memorials such as memory gardens and links to other Web sites helpful in the bereavement process. Just a Cloud Away Remembrance Kits are sold directly to the public at www.justacloudaway.com, and are available wholesale to all retailers. Just a Cloud Away will donate a percentage of sales to non-profit organizations interested in buying or selling product. Affiliate Marketing programs will be available in 2007 through the Web site. The Classic Baby style is the initial launch design with Modern Baby and Vintage Baby launching later next year. The Modern and Vintage Baby kits will include other ethnicities and all retail for $15.
