Vinyl-first time! :)

As some of you know, we've all been pretty ill in my house this past week, so my mother in law kindly offered to watch our baby for us so we could get some rest :) Of course, rest for me and my hubby equals out to PS3 and Cricut time and I have been dying to put some vinyl up on my walls so I thought tonight would be perfect to put my favorite bible verse up! :) Came out great if I do say so myself AND it was my first time too! My Cricut Circle sister Michelle at Scrappin With My Bug has an awesome Vinyl tutorial and she sent me some to try! I think i'm hooked! LOL

The pressure was set at low (2), speed at high and for me, I put my blade on 4 :) The words are cut out at 3" with Lyrical Letters :)


  1. I love it - I am still so scared of using the vinyl - why oh why?!?! That quote is priceless and I love how you have it with your family pictures.


  2. Love it girlie! As soon as we have our own house, I'm putting scriptures up. I usually put them in a picture frame but I would love to have them on the wall in vinyl. TFS.
