Leap Day coupon code for Oh My Crafts

I recently bought a Silhoutte Cameo cutting machine from Oh My Crafts with their President's Day sale coupon. They sell for $269 but with the 25% coupon I got it for $212.
Now they have another great coupon sale so if anyone is interested in a big ticket item now is the time to get one quarter off. Pin It

You are a radishing couple

I was saving this digital card to give to Cissy and Wilk on Valentine's Day and to all my other "couple" friends. I used the cute image of the heart with wings from the Graphics Fairy. The black lace border is from Coffee Shop digital.  The image of the "radishing couple" is from a John Derian decoupage site. The font is King and Queens. Pin It

My craft room

Just wanted you to be the first to see my new craft room, sorry I look so bad but I just woke up and look like Kate Moss. HA, I wish. Next post I'll invite you all inside. Pin It

Je T' aime

While watching a You Tube video on how to make an oval box I made this box out of letter size gray cardstock. I frenchified it up using marble paper to cover and line my box, added a sheer black ribbon band around the top, used ultra thick embossing powder to make Marie Antoinette's image shine and then applied her to the top of my beautiful oval box.
I went to the Graphics Fairy and found the fleur de lis border which was used on the card; I will give this along with the box. I played around in PS and added the cupid and heart image inside the border with a font called woodcut ornaments and the font for I love you is afternoon delight.
