EEP! So excited about today's post, it is a little outside of my comfort zone (which is sewing), but I have a Silhouette and it has been sitting here not getting the use it deserves and so when Expressions Vinyl inspired me, I jumped at the chance!
I started off simple last week with a mario inspired shirt
So today we are working with Expressions Vinyl! They sell all sorts of stuff for vinyl crafting - including the Silhouette cutting machines - which is what I use for my vinyl cutting.
PS. Read to the end - there is a coupon code and a chance to win!
This is what I made, plain boring white mugs look ADORABLE! :
I love that the site clearly lists uses for each product. I am soooo new to this that I really needed it to be dummy proof since I had no idea what exactly to order.
If you are green like me - trust the settings on your machine, I was scared it wouldn't cut through so i increased the thickness setting - BAD idea! I had to restart. But even with a restart and not having a clue what I was doing this was a simple one lazy evening project.
and then you press down and it sticks to the mug - the vinyl lifts right away from that very sticky transfer tapes and stays on the mug - the transfer tape just peels away. Nothing hard or complicated or messy about it! It is amazing!
See, fun morning mug! Do you know someone who is not a morning person and could use this as their coffee cup? It is an easy craft to do!
Then I was a bit hooked... so I searched the cupboards for another plain white something and found this soup mug, it clearly needed a face!
and of course the man needed something too, he looooves tea and the A-Team! I weeded the design and then put it on transfer tape and now it can just sit flat in my drawer waiting for me to find a mug big enough to put this on! Seriously - so fun and so cool working with this!
I am starting to browse pinterest looking for ideas... and coming up with some of my own... There will be plenty more vinyl crafting posts in this blog's future! This might be a new addiction.... I wonder what else I can find tov inyl...
