Cricut Circle Blog Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!  As most of you know, it's almost time for CHA in Chicago.  For those of you who are going...I hope you have a GREAT time.  And for those of you going to the Cricut Circle Meet-Up in Ohio....I hope you have a BLAST!!!!

In celebration of the "Roadtrip to CHA" - the Cricut Circle Blog is doing a Pennant Contest.  The rules for this contest:  Make a pennant using the Birthday Bash ~ Cricut cartridge - any pennant from pages 58-70, using the "fit to page" feature button for a 12x12 inch piece of paper.  The pennant should be your representation of the state, providence or country of your choosing.

I am actually a born and raised Arizona native - kinda rare here in Phoenix as so many people move here from other places.  So I made this pennant for my home state of Arizona.  The pennant measure 11 inches.


Every single element of this pennant was printed with the Cricut Imagine. The ribbon is from SEI.  The pennant was cut using the Birthday Bash ~ Cricut cartridge (pg 65).  The pennant shadow is printed from the Kate's Kitchen ~ Imagine cartridge.  The top layer of the pennant is printed from the Better Together ~ Imagine cartridge.


The "Arizona" is cut from the 50 States ~ Cricut cartridge.  The "Arizona" shadow is printed from the Kate's Kitchen ~ Imagine cartridge.  The top layer of "Arizona" is printed from the Heirloom ~ Imagine cartridge.  The sun is cut from the Life's A Beach ~ Cricut cartridge.  Note that I used the Gypsy and the "Hide Contour" feature to remove the sun's face.  The sun is printed from the Kate's Kitchen ~ Imagine cartridge.


The whole desert landscape is cut from the Campin' Critters ~ Cricut cartridge.  The sedona red mountain is printed from the Imagine More ~ Imagine cartridge.  The green cactus is printed from the Ancestry ~ Imagine cartridge.


The orangish/yellowish mountain is printed from the Imagine More ~ Imagine cartridge.  The desert dirt color is printed from the Buccaneer ~ Imagine cartridge


The horse is cut from the Old West ~ Cricut cartridge.  Both colors for the horse are printed from the Heirloom ~ Imagine cartridge.  The Cuttlebug is cut from the Cricut Everyday ~ Cricut cartridge.  Both colors for the Cuttlebug are printed from the Mr. Frosty ~ Imagine cartridge.  The cowboy hat is cut from the Old West ~ Cricut cartridge.  And both colors for the hat are printed from the Ancestry ~ Imagine cartridge.


Well that's my State of Arizona Pennant.  I used a total of 6 Cricut cartridges and 7 Imagine cartridges.   I love how it turned out :)  I hear the Cricut folks are going to take all the pennants and hang them around the room at the Ohio - Cricut Circle Meet-Up.  Can't wait to see pictures of what everyone comes up with.  How fun!!!

See you next time...

My friend is wanting to make a banner for her classroom....I hope they post pictures of all the cool ones y'all are making so she can see them for ideas. Yours is great; Katie's is also very nice.

Let's not think of all the cool things we are missing in not being in the Windy City at CHA.
