I used three cartridges for this hop. I played with Twinkle Toes, 50 States, and Lyrical Letters. Monday April 30th was Louisiana's 200th birthday and we had all sorts of things going on at school to celebrate. I made this banner to hang outside my classroom.
Here is the banner....
 The large state cutouts have poems written by the students on them.
 The actual banner pieces are a base from Twinkle Toes. I use the bases from Twinkle Toes often for banners. They are great shapes to work with. The white is cut at 4" and the color is cut at 4 1/2".
 The Louisiana on the last banner piece is from 50 States and is cut at 5".
 I punched holes at each edge and put an eyelet in to reinforce the paper. They are tied together with curling ribbon . Doing it this way will allow me to remove the 200th and the Louisiana, so the banner can be used again.
 I used several different colors of stickles and randomly added sparkly goodness. You can find stickles here and use code 33 for 33% off of everything that is not already marked down
The letters are from Lyrical Letters and are the Jumbo creative feature. They are cut at 4".
The kids loved the banner and enjoyed learning how to use the Cricut. They cut the states for their poems fit to page on a 12x12 mat.

I also used Lyrical Letter Jumbo Letters on this layout.
 I love these Imaginecse papers I got from Erica's store.
 The hidden journaling tells the story of these shoes.
