Banners are everywhere! We love their versatility and the way they can be customized for any occasion. For this challenge, we want you to create a banner with any theme you would like. You may use THIS POST as inspiration, or feel free to create something completely new. Project must be newly created for this challenge. Your entry must include 3 or cricut cuts.

I used Straight from the Nest for the banner at 9", Storybook at 4" and shadowed for EASTER, and Stretch your Imagination for the bunnies. Oval nestabilities for the ovals and a MS punch for the bows.I love those little bunnies as they climb all over the letters.

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #19: Whatevah! Challenge

“Whatevah!” is a phrase a lot of parents of teens hear around their house on daily basis. We thought we’d take that phrase to heart for this next challenge. What we’d like you to do is use WHATEVAH shape you would like, but be sure to repeat it three times on your project. Project must also include spray ink and must be newly created for this challenge.

For this challenge I used the heart from Paper Pups on p.104. One heart was cut at 3" and 2 at 1 1/2". Brown ink was sprayed on the cardstock.
