Thursday's Tutorial - Birthday Projects

Hi everyone! This is Suzanne from cricutcraftingrammy here to share the Thursday Tutorial with you. I am honored to be a new member to the FCCB Design Team. I have offered to help Amy Jo and Robin with the Thursday Tutorial and am really excited to share with you today. I actually have two items to share with you that goes along with the challenge theme this week which is "Birthday Bash".
The first project I want to share with you is from Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady. Sheila's blog is full of great Gypsy tutorials and I love this one for a Trifold Birthday Card. So now even if you don't have the E2 and the Just a Note Cartridge you can make a trifold card for any occasion. Sheila has a detailed tutorial with tons of pictures. While you are there check out the other great tutorials Sheila has on her blog. Believe me you will learn so much about using your Gypsy.
The second item I want to share is a Birthday Cake tea light. I think these are so fun and a cute addition to a birthday card. I found a great tutorial for these on Split Coast Stampers. For the tutorial they used a scallop punch but you could also use your Cricut or any other die cutting machine to make the scallop circle. Here is the link for a picture tutorial as well as a You Tube video- Birthday cake tealight
The second Birthday cake Tealight is from Paulette (Scraplette) who uses Elegant Edges and MS Elegant Cake Art to make her cake. Aren't those little roses adorable? They are made from Elegant Edges Scallop circles and a quilling tool. Here is the link to her project-Birthday cake tea light

Thanks for joining us today for the FCCB Thursday Tutorial. Hope you get some inspiration from these projects. Don't forget the challenge this week is "Birthday Bash". Hope to see a lot of great projects.
