Welcome to Create with JoNeita and the FCCB Vinyl EDU Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!!
This week we are challenging you to create a project using vinyl you have cut using your Cricut. We have a fabulous sponsor, Cricket Vinyl Supplies. If we get 100 participants in this challenge, our sponsor will give a Cricut Expression package that includes a Cricut Expression machine, deep cut blade, Jasmine Cricut cartridge, ten 12' X 12' assorted sheets of matte vinyl and one 12' X 12' gridded transfer tape. How exciting is that?
If you have come from Heather's blog, Scraping Runner Creations, then you are in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations, head on over to Fantabulous Cricut Here to start at the beginning.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog. There will be Blog Candy along the way at ALL of our Design Team members' blogs, and don't forget about the Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a vinyl project at FCCB!
I had never worked with vinyl before, but had been wanting to create a piece of wall art for this blank space on the wall in our living room. It is right as you walk into our hallway, so it was a glaring blank spot yelling for a big bold graphic. I was surprised at how easy it was to use, and I think I am addicted now. I wanted it to be big (floor to celling), and I was having trouble getting pre-made images cut big enough, so I decided to make my own. It was actually a lot easier than I though it would be.
The flowers were cut using a circle from Craft Room Basics, cut at 2.139 high, and the petals are cut using the layer (Bird 2) from Create A Critter, cut at 7.5 in high. I just really liked the shape of the wing and thought that it made a great country flower with a modern touch to it. I cut the flowers out in blue, brown, and a deep red. I know the wall color looks yellow, but it is really more of a tan color and the vinyl colors look great on the wall.
I felt that it needed something more, so I decided to cut "Live, Laugh, Love" out and add it to the piece. I cut "Live" using the Type Candy Cartridge, standard font at 2.5 in high. "Laugh" was cut using the Type Candy Cartridge, Sugar Script font at 4.75 in high. Then "Love" was cut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, roly poly font, cut at 2.11 in high.
I hope that you have been inspired by my project. Now for some
