To my Valentine....

What a fabulous day today! I had the honor of being a part of Sonoran Living Live on ABC 15; I showed how to create the cute as a button mailbox (pictured in previous post) as well as a quick yet hip host/hostess gift for the big game on Sunday (Superbowl). Both projects I demoed used my new favorite must have crafting tool....

Yep folks, I have added to my never ending collection of crafting gadgets and gizmo's a plenty.....whose it's and what's it galore....Oops, flash back to my Disney days ;) LOL

Anyhoo, the kind, generous, fantastic, wonderful peeps over at Silhouette graciously offered me a Silhouette. Of course I was elated and on cloud 9 and quickly said, "Yes, yes, yes, I would love one!". I must tell you...I LOVE it! As many of you know, I have been a big fan of the Cricut but man oh man this is even easier, smaller, and less hurt on the pocket book then having a Cricut. If you do not have a cutting machine but have been thinking of getting one, the Silhouette is the way to go! I was elated when I plugged in my Silhouette for the first time and honest to goodness, all (I said ALL) of the fonts I have on my computer were readily available for me to use to cut with the Silhouette. That's thousands of fonts (for FREE I might add). With the Cricut you have to purchase every cartridge for every font...that's a lot of mullah folks. Anyhoo, I LUV (if you can't tell ;) :) ;)

Thanks to my new gadget, creating the projects I showed on 'the show' was so quick and easy and fun to boot. I will post a link to the segment as soon as it's available.

In the mean time, for those of you who are visiting Paper Princess Studio for the first time from either the live studio audience or on air audience, Welcome! I am so very glad you stopped by- I invite you to come back often for much more crafting, decorating, and well anything really. I would also like to give everyone who is stopping by my blog a gift (call it an early Valentine from me to you) I came across my M.I.L collection of vintage cards from when she was a child and thought I would share with you
