Cricut Vinyl

This photo shows what is now hung on the wall over my Cricut machine. Although Cricut vinyl has been on the market for awhile now, it's my first attempt. The most difficult part was choosing which fonts to use....these are both free fonts that were downloaded at various times, then cut using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) software for my Cricut.

It was very easy to use the vinyl....cut using a "2" for pressure, weed the unwanted parts off the mat, cover with transfer tape, lift off mat, use level to place on wall, then remove transfer tape.

Also note that my walls are made of concrete and are not nice and smooth like drywall, but the vinyl worked like a charm anyway! I'll definitely be doing more projects with vinyl in the future.

Really cute. I didn't know the trick with the transfer tape. They don't make it sound that easy in the vinyl instructions that come with the tape. Thanks for the tip.
