Fantabulous Friday -- Birthday Bash!

Hi everyone! Who's glad it's Friday?! I know I am. It's been a long week and I was sick for the 1st half and still trying to feel 100%. But at least I have 2 days off now and can play with my Cricut goodies I got in the mail this week :)
Today I thought I would spotlight the Birthday Bash cartridge since that is our theme this week. I always need a birthday card so this cartridge comes in very handy!

The creative features for this cartridge are Layer 1, Layer 2, Phrase, Card/Tag, Font and Font Shadow. There is even a matching Cuttlebug Companion Folder set too!

I found two cards made by Kyle at The Green Cricut. He has some amazing projects at his blog!! Please be sure to visit him and check out his blog. The elephant is one of my favorite cuts on this cart :)

This cartridge has some great banners too. I really want to make a fun birthday themed one sometime, but here is one with a GA theme (since that is where I live). Note: the banner is from Birthday Bash and all other cuts are from several other cartridges. I just really wanted you to see a banner--and this banner is fit to page on a 12 x 12 mat.

And this photo/notebook I made uses the phrase feature. I also used the Your Story to make this!

So as you can see, there are lots of occasions to use this cartridge for than just birthdays too! Be sure to visit the post from Monday to see at the design team's birthday projects and then link up your own that you made for this Challenge :)
Have a fantabulous weekend!

    You chose some great examples to highlight this cartridge. I don't have it, but it may go on my list.
