Kiss Cutting Vinyl

Hi, Becky here from Journey to Creativity with you today. Well summer is winding down and fall will be upon us shortly. I'm really looking forward to fall this year. I'm excited about all the fun things that are happening at She's a Sassy Lady. There has been a lot of fantastic talent added to our design team and I'm looking forward to what is in store for us this winter. I can't wait.

Now, let's get down to business. I have had several events lately where I needed to cut vinyl. So I researched kiss cutting vinyl and practiced until I figured out exactly how to kiss cut it correctly.

I purchased this water bottle on sale at Wal-Mart for $1. I needed a gift for a 30th anniversary at work and thought it would be great to add initials to it.

I started by putting lots of circles on my gypsy and then adding the initial K (for Karen) at the end.

I used the Gypsy font for the letter K. I got the perfect kiss cut by setting the pressure at medium and the blade depth at 4.

Here is the vinyl after peeling off the excess. The kiss cut was PERFECT!

I applied the polka dots and the initial to the water bottle and came up with this really cute gift.

Thank you Sheila for allowing me to come over and post on your blog today. I'm extremely honored to be amongst such a fabulous team of designers. I would love for you to visit my blog at Journey To Creativity and let me know how you will decorate your next project with vinyl. Registered & Protected
