Vinyl Wall Art with the Cricut

Although I have used vinyl to decorate my car  windows, I have been a little nervous to try it on my walls.  Not sure why I was so nervous because I can now report it was a cinch.  I have to thank my daughter for giving me the push to try this.  We redecorated her room this past summer and she finally got the furniture the way she likes it, so it was time for some words.  She loves music and this is what she wanted.

I think it turned out pretty great and she does to.  I used Lyrical Letters and the musical notes are from the Hannah Montana cartridge.  I used my gypsy to weld the letters and notes together.  The brown vinyl is from Provocraft.

Not a bird-brained challenge!

The gals over at Fantabulous Cricut challenged us to create a project using something having to do with a bird ! I love their Monday challenges, as it gets me inspired to get in my scrap room and actually make something.  I recently got the Thanksgiving Seasonal cartridge and have been dying to us it.  This cartridge is so pretty and has some beautiful cuts on it. 

Fall is my favorite time of the year.  The colors are so rich and virbant! Don't you just love this turkey? The salutation is actually cut out of the orange paper so the black background shows through. The base of the card is from a Debbie Mumm Holiday Stack from s couple of years back. I used Core'dinations Color Core cardstock for the balance of the cuts and let me tell you, it "cuts like buttah".  I have always been a Bazzill girl but  this paper has definately opened my horizons.

I finished the inside of this card with a pretty little vine cut.  I love it when the inside of cards are decorated too!
