My mom owned an antique shop in San Francisco, called Thelma Dangerfield's. Collecting and a love for vintage is in my blood. There is nothing like finding a good treasure! I am a daughter, wife, mom, cook,Substitute teacher, Girl Scout Leader and I love to entertain.
You may remember me saying I got Cricut Mini for Christmas! Have you ever seen on or used one? This is my first experience...and it's a lot of fun! It's EASY. The mini is connected to my computer and I "design" all my cuts on the computer screen. I simple pick from the images below. Click on the image I want and move it to the area I want, enlarge it, etc. Easy. Then..cut. Then, peel the excess paper. The cuts stick to the mat. You use a mini spatula to take the pieces off.
I thought the vinyl would be hard.......NOPE. Cut like paper and Voila!! You add transfer paper to the back. The letters stay together and are now stuck to the transfer paper. You place on door..scratch off and your letters stay! Lucie loves her new door!!
I just did this Vinyl wall quote on my lunch break! Just added it to the post! I think it's a good message for the kids!
So, of course I wanted to try T-shirt vinyl!! How cool. Same steps: Design what you want on the computer, and cut. T-shirt vinyl comes with a special plastic already in place. I ordered my T-shirt vinyl on line. So many choices!! I loved the glitter. Letters must be cut reversed for T-shirts. You spell out the name and hit a button that reverses the letters. I could do it. So EASY.
I was amazed! Once your image is cut and the extra vinyl around it is peeled off...place on the T-shirt and iron right onto the shirt! The plastic doesn't melt!!
Peel the plastic off and...voila!
Now her name, because she can never find it in The States spelled the French way!!
I think this is our favorite project yet! It's so easy! I have seen many...many Cricuts on shopgoodwill.com. I recommend a Mini!
I am in love with my Mini Cricut. I am goin gto make the most of and use it a lot!! Oh...I wish I didn't work!!
