Good Times Cardz TV Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the brand new release called Good Times!! You are going to LOVE it!! There are so many fun and fabulous saying for celebrating and birthdays for the young and old alike. Here's a picture of all the fun sentiments! :0)

For my project I wanted to create a little box to put money in for my niece. She turned 18 on the 19th of this month. She is crazy for pink and black so I thought it would be fun to make a box in the shape of a cake and decorate it. The box is cut from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cartridge at 8 inches. I added some Recollections sticker tape to the outside of the box as well as glitter circles from Michael's as well. The sequins trim is from Ebay. I have seen the trim or something like it at Joann's as well. :0) The adorable flower is from Basic Grey.

Here's a video of my treat box:

My Son's 21st Bday Card! :0)

Hi Everyone! Here's a card that I made for my son who will be turning 21 this month. I saw this card on Pinterest and fell in love with it. I think this makes a great man card. I used the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge for the numbers cut at 1 inch. The numbers are actually cut out of the card and then there is a black background. I know from the picture it looks like I adhered the numbers to the card, but they are actually cut out. I will have a video posted by tomorrow so that you can see it more up close. The dimensions of the card are 5 1/5 x 5. The inner layer is 4 1/2 x 4 3/4. The original design that I saw did not have the faux stiching, but I really liked the way that it turned out. I also added the rhinestones to look like the circle cut outs for the numbers.
Here's a picture of both my boys. The one of the left is my oldest who will be turning 21 in just a few days. :0)
