home using printable vinyl

….I know not everyone has a cricut or silhouette…so I’ve decided to do a project using neither. just my mad skillz….

and some awesome printable vinyl from expressions vinyl.

and a printer

and some scissors.

I took some black and white pictures….and printed them out…

I left it sideways on purpose….to use up as much space as possible!!!!
i cut each one out….making sure all 4 were the same size…

then I just lightly penciled in some letters (this is where you could get all time consuming and print out a font you like..cut it out and trace it…)

(when I was picking my pictures…i picked a letter for each one and made sure it didn’t cut off the persons eyeballs or anything!)

all done…..

I had this old board with hooks right in my entry way that holds my keys…
I distressed the crap out of it…

and peeled and stuck (just like vinyl!) it’s a bit thicker so you don’t really need to use transfer tape unless you have some smallish detail!

now. cause i just can’t resist myself…i used my cricut. (see this was forever ago i made this! i’ve since upgraded to a cameo (i’m a trader.))

 cut it out…added some transfer paper and added it..

are you singing the song? cause i am. love it.

here’s husbands opinion:
“i hate that picture of myself”
but every other picture i have is like this

this printable vinyl is also AWESOME for the cameo! you can go HERE to see how to use it!
