I (heart) you banner

There were a few different challenges I wanted to enter all at once, so last night I made this cute little banner to surprise my daughters with when they wake up this morning. I'm going to let them hang it up in their room. I'm sure they will be SOO excited, and I can't wait to see their faces!

The first challenge was over at Made by Momo, and it was to use the colors hot pink, black, and white and use at least 1 heart. If that wasn't obvious already!

The second challenge was at Crafting with Cristina, and it was to make a Valentines themed project - but NOT a card! That made it a little tougher for me, since cards are definately my favorite thing to make!

The last challenge was over on the Cricut Circle blog, and it was to make a banner, with at least 3 Cricut cuts.

So I cut the banner from Birthday Bash, as well as the scalloped circles and the letters. The heart came from Simply Charmed, just without the face showing, and I cut the top white layer by welding together two different size hearts. The little cupids are from the Sweethearts cartridge. I added Glossy Accents to all the black parts of the cuts, icicle Stickles to the center of the heart, and black Stickle dots to the edges of the white scallops and the white part of the heart. Did some doodling, and then strung it together with Baker's Twine. Oh yeah...almost forgot...also pop dotted the I (heart) U part as well!


  1. Wow these are so beautiful....wonderful colors and images great job...


  2. This is so beautiful. I still have to work on my banner for the circle blog. You did a great job with combining all the challenges.
