#144 Valentine's Sweets - LOVE Banner

Hi everyone! Here is a project I created for the monthly challenge for the Cricut Circle Magazine. We were asked to do some creating in the Cricut Craft Room, the free online design tool offered by

I recently purchased the Craft Room digital exclusive Valentine's Sweets, so I decided to make a banner using some of those images. I combined this cartridge with the Berries & Creme Imagine cartridge for the colours and patterns.

I cut the flag and layers at 5.5".

The love hearts were cut at 2.25".

I added some glitter here and there by using some glitter glue by Martha Stewart that came with a little kit I purchased a while back. I sprinkled the glitter over top of that.

I punched holes in the top corners of the pennants and added eyelets for durability. I then strung some purple ribbon through the holes. I also added some bows to the end pennants using the same ribbon.

If you would like to have a look at the Valentine's Sweets Craft Room exclusive, click HERE, or go check it out in the Cricut Craft Room! You can create your designs and save them for when you are able to purchase the cartridge or images to cut them out. Pretty neat! Also, if you have a Gypsy and the Craft Room is not for you, but you are interested some of the images, you can purchase the set and it will be added to your G the next time you update.

Hope you like it!
