Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge: August Cosmo Cricket Contest

Well, it was about time for me to take on another one of the Circle challenges. This time I chose the Circle Magazine Challenge. I needed to make a thank you card for my parents and I thought this would give me a great     set of criteria to follow. It really helps me narrow down my options and keeps me moving along. I am very slow when it comes to my creative process. 

Here are the details:


Cosmo Cricket has been with us from the beginning, so we are super excited about this contest. They always produce such fabulous product that fits perfectly with the Cricut and Cuttlebug machines. This month’s contest will be a fun way to put all of your favorite things together.

Contest Rules: Use any Cosmo Cricket product, at least three Cricut cuts, and any Cuttlebug folder. Contest will open on August 20th. Please upload a working link or picture of your project to the blog under the Magazine Challenge tab. One entry per person. Entry deadline is Friday, September 9th. The winner of this contest will receive $150.00 credit on! Don’t forget to take a high resolution picture so if you win, you can send it in for the Magazine!

For this challenge I made my parents a thank you card because, well...they are past due for one (along with a BUNCH of other family and friends). We just finished the first big section of our basement and my parents donated their family room furniture to the space. Now I was expecting to borrow the really old living room furniture and through on some slip covers until we could splurge for new stuff. But Dad wanted to keep that stuff. Why???? No clue. But I think it has something to do with the need to buy NEW stuff for them if they gave us the other set. NICE. I don't mind at all. Besides, the couch and love seat look pretty cozy in our new space.  

So this is the reason for the "theme" of my card. Plus the challenge was a Cosmo Cricket contest. Couldn't pass up am opportunity to use my Imagine cartridges from CC, one of my fave companies. So here it is, with a matching envie too. I might toss out some more pics later but I need to get this entered before the deadline. Now keep this in mind, this is a judged contest. NOT a random draw. So based on the other entries....I am toast. But I wanted to try just for the challenge aspect so I might as well enter anyway. 

Good luck to all the other Circlets!!!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow, Great Colors!! This card is really cool.

  2. Great card! Which cart is the chair from? Enquiring minds are pining to know :D

  3. I used the Imagine Best Friends (Cosmo Cricket) cart. Love that cart!
    I was going to post details but maybe I will tackle that another day.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving comments!

  4. I love this. I just watched UP with my daughter, and your project just gives me the same warm feeling-- I guess it reminds me of their chairs.

    Even your envelope is beautiful!
