Wisconsin! Ohio Cricut Circle meet

I am so excited to be going to the Cricut Circle meet up in Ohio this weekend!!!  There were a few things going on that I needed to prepare for.  One was to make a calling card to trade with other Circle members.  On one side, you decorate it to represent yourself or something you like.  On the other side, you put your contact information.  This is helpful so that after the crop, you can contact people, visit their blogs, and just have great memories of them!  I made 111 of these cards, hence all those tiny little pieces of cheese I teased you with the other day!  :)

Here is mine:

The recipe:
The card is 3x3 and I used a CM corner rounder to soften the corners.
The light green layer is embossed using a Disney Princess Cuttlebug die. It was then sprayed with Honey Dew Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to give it a little bit of sparkle (hard to see in the pics).
WI is cut from 50 States, at 6".
The circle logo is cut from Cricut Everyday at 2".
The cheese is cut from Create a Critter at 0.75".    I love cheese and WI is famous for it!

There also was a banner contest going on. Each person was to make one pennant representing the state or country they are from.  I played off of my calling card and came up with this:

The recipe:
The banner is from Birthday Bash at fit to page on a 12x12 sheet.
WI, the circle log and cheese are the same as above. 
I hand cut the cow's behind and tail :)  I then flocked the end of the tail with Black flocking powder.
Wisconsin is from Birthday Bash, both regular and shadow, cut at 1.25". 


  1. I love the fact that your card and banner match. So cute!

  2. so much fun I am jealous you are going. I look forward to hering all about it. Great calling cards! (even if I like your first round best..for selfish reasons)

  3. Yeah, we finally get to see what you were doing with the cheese. Those are so cute! I love the Cheese!

  4. Hope you've had a great time at the Ohio Meet-up. We attended the Texas Stampede and loved all the calling cards we received.

    If you took pictures of the state banners, we'd love to see them!

    Your cards and banner are adorable. MOOOO! Love the cheese!

  5. Both your card and Banner were adorable! Great work!
