Applying Vinyl In A Few Easy Steps

Hey everyone, this is Kimberly and I am so excited that it is my turn to share another project with you!  Be sure to stop by my My Craft Spot, for more fun projects and vidoes!

I love to put vinyl sayings on my walls, especially for holiday decorations!  Today's project is a fun reminder for my kids bathroom.  I actually saw this on the wall at our dentist's office:


Vinyl lettering is so fun and easy to do with the cricut!  The Lyrical Letters cartridge is my favorite for vinyl lettering  (Easy to weed!).  Here is a video showing how I cut and 'weeded the vinyl'.  I also show you how to put it on the wall. :-)



Be sure to check out my blog, My Craft Spot , for more cards, scrapbook layouts and videos! I made these fun cards using the Create a Critter and the Just because Cards Cricut cartridges.




Have a great weekend!

What an awesome video teaching us all about vinyl application. I learned so much and can't wait to try this method. Look out walls, here I come!

That's awesome. I know that transfer tape comes in so handy when you have a large saying or picture. Great job.

Great job on the video..I haven't tried the vinyl with transfer tape yet, so maybe I will get the chance this weekend- since I ordered 3 colors and transfer tape from cricutmachine.com on memorial day at 50% off. thanks
