I just wanted to put up a quick post of something I did late last night. I've had such a crazy schedule again and don't see it slowing down any time soon. I wish I could spend as much time in my craft room as I do at my 3 jobs. CRAZY!
Anyway, hubby found something on facebook yesterday (he just got a smart phone and now he finds all kinds of fun stuff and of course wants me to either look at it, or make it, or comment on it (lol)) and tagged me on it. I so knew I needed to make it immediately!
So without further ado...I dusted off my cricut and pulled out some scrap vinyl (because you know I NEVER throw anything away and here is my new vinyl decal for the back window of the van.
It's really a pretty orange color, but I am not sure why my camera did this???
I downloaded the image and brought it into my SCAL program. Using the trace image portion of the program I made a few adjustments and brought that onto my mat. Then I broke the image apart and took out the "extras" (it had a double line) and cut. Simple as that. Then I used transfer paper and put it on my window. Make sure you clean the area good before applying your decal. I'm no expert on using SCAL but I do try things here and there. In fact, Penny Duncan is heading up a SCAL and ECAL group again. You can find it here at Yahoo Groups or here at Google+ Community. She has some wonderful ideas and lots of step by steps. I know she is planning a hangout soon and that would be a lot of fun also.
Here is the complete back of the window...
I did this vinyl 3 years ago and it still looks great. So don't be afraid to try vinyling your window. I know I love making my own and it's SOOOO much cheaper, :)
I hope you liked my quick post and as always, Have a Great Day and God Bless!
Your hubby's project for you turned out AWESOME Brenda!!!! I know he's proud!!!!ReplyDelete
