I'm sure a lot of you have heard about the Cricut Banner contest. The contest was to make a banner with the word CRICUT. There are supposed to be 5 winners of the new E2 Cricut Machine and many of the banners will be shown on HSN on Monday, September 26th. I don't have cable so if you happen to see my banner let me know ;).
When I heard about the contest I had a couple of ideas but only got one of them made and turned in before the deadline. Here is a full picture of the banner, you can always click on a picture if you want to see it close up, but I will include some closeups as well:
Close up of left side:
Close up of right side:
Close up of the letters only:
These banner pieces are from Birthday Bash and are cut at 5.5". I included LOTS of stitching...
And now to my VERY favorite part of the banner... The Cricut LOVING banner girls. Here is the brunette:
This cute brunette was cut at 9.5" and is about 10" tall assembled. Her face is a Peachy Keen face I bought on clearance last year (discontinued). It is a BIG face and fits this darling banner girl PERFECTLY!!! She is holding her lovely Cricut green Gypsy and her darling Creative Genius shirt was a bonus stamp that Emma gave out with one of her stamp releases.
Now onto our adorable blondy:.
This cutie is a quite the paper princess. Her cute sentiment on her crafty shirt came from Emma's Paper Princess stamp set. She has another huge Peachy Keen Face that I picked up on clearance last year (discontinued). Can I say I'm SO glad I bought these last year!!! You could get very similar faces, just a little bit smaller with the 7-9" Basic Paper Doll Faces from Peachy Keen Stamps. Anyway, she has her Baby Bug Cricut with her and is ready to play with some paper because that is what makes her HAPPY!
I had a BLAST making this and I LOVE how it turned out. I plan on making one to put in my craft room when I get some spare time - LOL! I hope you enjoyed it!
