Blake's graduation banner

Wow! I have finally decided to enter a circle challenge!

Here is a description for this months Magazine Challenge:

Create any sort of banner you would like, just make sure to incorporate at least 4 Cricut Cuts. Please upload a working link or picture of your project to the blog under the Magazine Challenge tab. Since last month was so much fun seeing how many entries we had, we are doing it again. This month you can enter as many times as you want and we will use the number assigned to your project to randomly pick a winner. Entry deadline is May 11th. If you use Cricut Craft Room design tool, save your file so if you win, we can share it with the Circle members! The winner of this challenge will receive $150.00 credit to and your project picture will be featured in the magazine!

I think that since it is picked randomly, I have a fair chance of winning...

I made a banner for Blake's graduation party.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge for the banner, Happy Graduation for the hats, the graduation boy came from Every Day Paper Dolls and the letters are from the Cricut Alphabet that comes preloaded on the AE 2.

I think it turned out pretty good! I hate that the school colors are Black & Orange (they call it Halloween High) but what can you do???

I hope Blake likes it!


  1. Carrie this banner is awesome. It is probably the best banner I have seen yet. I'm not kidding. I think the details with the diploma, grad kid, and caps really sets this apart. Outstanding job, TFS, Mary M

  2. how did you make this banner? what images did you use and what sizes of the cuts?
