DIY Easy Heart Cake

Valentine's Day is almost here!
My family has always made a heart cake to celebrate the holiday, and it is SUPER easy! Here's how you can make this super cute cake:

1. You will need a square pan, a circle pan, a box of cake mix, and a container of frosting.

2. Prepare the cake mix as instructed on the box.

3. Put half of the batter in the circle pan and half in the square pan.

4. Bake according to the instructions!

5. After taking out of the oven, let cool completely.

6. Cut the circle cake in half and place on two of the sides of the square to form a heart.

7. Frost and enjoy! :)

Dorm Decor: DIY Photo Board

Hey cupcakes!!!!! Now that I am slowly preparing myself for college next fall, I have begun to make some items for my dorm. This photo board is sooooo easy and quick! I also made it for less than $2 because I had most of the supplies already! Whoa.
Here is what you will need:

-Black foam board from Dollar Tree ($1)
-Photos (the first 25 photos you print from Walmart are free when you sign up online!)
-Glue
-Mod Podge Matte
-Paintbrush
-Command poster strips

Instructions:

1. Buy the materials. Find pictures from Facebook, Instagram, etc. and send to your local Walmart. I bought thirty and only paid $0.80 with the first 25 free! (Go to the Walmart photo center's website to register)

2. Place foam board on a flat surface. 

3. Figure out how you are going to arrange your pictures. I was using a tutorial on Pinterest and she cut out squares. I decided to use many shapes so all of my pictures would fit. 

4. Cut out the pictures and glue onto board.

5. Mod podge over the pictures (it looks like you are ruining the photos but don't worry you won't!)

6. Hang with some Command poster strips! Enjoy!!!!!

Movie Review: Annie

Release date: 19 December 2014

Rating: PG


When I saw the trailer for this movie, I was very skeptical. I enjoyed the old Annie movies, and a modern twist with a black Annie did not seem like a good idea. However, I was VERY wrong! I went to see this movie with a group of my friends, and I enjoyed it so much that I took my boyfriend to see it another day. The modern twist updated Annie into something kids in these generations will enjoy! The songs have been made somewhat modern, but are still the classic songs everyone knows. They also added the song 'Opportunity' which was beautiful! I have been listening to the soundtrack for this movie way too much ;) Kids these days do not seem to enjoy musicals as much as past generations did, so this movie helps them to love a great classic musical. :) Even though Annie is a foster kid and not an orphan, the modern twist really worked in this movie. I enjoyed myself both times I went to see this movie, and I recommend it to anyone who has not seen it! 

What did you think about the movie? Comment below!!! <3 Also, what other movies would you like me to review? Have a great day!

PandaHall.com Review!

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be writing a review for the website PandaHall (LINK HERE).

This website sells beads, jewelry findings, charms, and other jewelry making supplies. I found this website while I was searching for bezels to use with some resin jewelry I was making (tutorial will uploaded soon!). Bezels can be super expensive and all the craft stores in my area were selling one bezel for up to $8! I wanted to find cheaper ones that were still high quality and PandaHall has fulfilled my expectations!

Here is what I purchased:
Vintage Tibetan Style Alloy Heart Pendant Cabochon Bezel Settings X-TIBEP-M018-144AB-NF-2 10 of these heart bezels for $0.52! (Link)
 Vintage Tibetan Alloy Pendant Cabochon Bezel Settings X-TIBEP-M018-38AB-NF-210 of these cameo bezels for $0.59! (Link)
Brass Blank Pendant Cabochon Settings X-KK-B534-S-1 10 of these round bezels for $0.87! (Link)

With shipping, the total was less than $4! It was such a great deal! The package came in only a few weeks which is amazing for Chinese products. I love this website and will definitely be shopping here again in the near future!

If you are a new crafter or want to stock up on supplies, I suggest checking out their website!!!!!
