BBTB - Birthday Challenge

Hi all!

We are gearing up for another exciting trip - Canada/Niagara Falls with 2 of my oldest and dearest blogland/Cricut friends Ann and Catherine (Silly Skittles if anyone is still here from back in the day.)  The shenanigans are pretty extreme when Cat and I get together - Can. Not. Wait!

This week's challenge at Bitten By the Bug is birthdays.  Hollyn had a birthday party to go to so I made a little tag for the gift:

The Phrases cartridge has some great double layer tags - I use them quite a bit.  To get the little border across the bottom I made a duplicate of the top layer of the tag and positioned it on the border I chose and then used the Slice feature to get just what I wanted - so easy!  The cute little balloons are "Balloon Bouquet" from Miss Kate Cuttables.  It originally had 4 balloons but I used Make The Cut and cut it down to 2, took away the string and bow and then re-made a shadow that fit just the balloons.  A little embossing folder on the tag base and she had a cute little tag for her friend's gift!

Head over to the BBTB blog and see the other great projects and then make one to add to the blog!


  1. Cute, cute, cute! Especially love those balloons!

  2. so pretty - seems like a lot of work - but I bet you have the process down and get it done fast. love the string for the balloons I should make a big set of tags for gifts too.

  3. I should make a bunch of these to just have on hand-so cute and would jazz up a gift like crazy! Very cute!
