Not so sure about this Vinyl stuff

Why do I do this to myself?? I am always trying something that I saw somewhere (no matter how flipping technically difficult it is!!!). When am I going to learn that there are things that are above my skill level....

I decided to make a wedding gift for a dear friend who is getting married this Friday (She is on my FB but I KNOW she will be way too busy this week to check out my blog and see it prior to the wedding - and if she does see it at least she will know to make the appropriate "oh its beautEEful" face even if she doesn't like it). My son ~who is my biggest craft fan *maybe he isn't and just fakes it to make me feel better* really didn't like how it turned out, which I guess is why I am doubting myself...

I used my gypsy (hand held Cricut designer) to do the M and Morgan so it was spaced right and did another layer for the 1st names.

Vinyl is a pain in the bootie - hard to line up or get even on glass so the names are not as centered as I would like. Oh, and the red vinyl was the Silhouette adhesive vinyl which was about 50 times LESS sticky than the Cricut vinyl so I wasn't sure it was even going to stick!!! There are bubbles in the big M vinyl, which you can't see unless you look close.  But its together and this is what Andrea is getting. Going to be a while before I try another vinyl project! LOL

*calling BS on myself because now I just want to prefect this vinyl crapola! Sorry about the quality of the pic, its hard to get a picture of see through glass but I tried.


  1. So this is the design you and Shirley worked on at her house? Cute idea! I want to do somethign similar with a shoe on it for my bathroom since I'm a shoe collector!

  2. While the picture i not really clear, it looks good to me. It's a gift I would like to receive. Don't be so hard on yourself.

  3. Wow!!!!! This is so beautiful! You are vvery talented!

  4. yeah don't be so hard on yourself it doesn't look bad and they are hard to do especially vinyl lettering. what you can do is use graph paper underneath as a guide so you can place it where you want it

  5. I like it, you did a great job, which cart did you use? I think I'm going to try and do this for my mom just because lol
