Playing with Birthday Bash

My latest Cricut passion is this fun cartridge - Birthday Bash, that I got from Scrappy-go-lucky. I made three cards for the SGL blog, this is one of them, pop over to see the other two. There are loads of features on this cartridge - lots of whimsical characters for children's birthday cards, shaped cards (see my roller skate card over on the blog), and some very useable phrases as well.
I cut the pile of presents at 3 1/2", and added a bit of bling

I kept the colour combination quite simple, but I think it worked well

Drop by tomorrow to see how you can add to your collection of Promarkers. There should have been a video to watch, but I carefully prepared everything, made the video, reviewed it, and on the short journey across the kitchen, managed to drop the camera onto the tiled floor. Dead as a dodo. Still, that's solved Mike's Christmas present problem for this year, and I get the latest model, so there's always a silver lining....
See you then

  2. Oh no! What a disaster! Well, maybe for the video. Anyway, is the video saved onto a card? You might be able to salvage that.
    I love the colors of the card. Black/white and Red/white are always striking combos. And the three together are just smashing! I love the combo! Thanks for sharing.
    I hope you get a great new camera.
    Are you leaving for the UK soon? I know you'll want to be home, with the kids, for the holidays. So travel with care and stay safe.
    Hugs, Jess

  15. The birthday bash cartridge is a really wonderful one. Too bad I'm not allowed :-) to buy anything anymore.
    Of course, that's also the reasing I'm twisting my thumbs (is that how you wish for good luck in English too?) for the ProMarkers. They seem amazingly versatile, but I'm bursting out of my small craft room and have promised hubby dearest not to buy anything new for a while.
