Gypsy, Cricut & Vinyl
Yes, my first go round with my Cricut and I choose intricate designs in vinyl. Am I an over achiever or what? 🙂 Both designs are on 6×6 ceramic tile, the tree and compass are from Wall Decor and More and the wording is from Gypsy Wanderings. I would like to create the tree on a 12×12 tile and add some type of heritage saying or quote. Any suggestions from my genea-friends? It took me a total of 2 hours from start to finish (choosing design, laying out words, sizing and placement) to complete both tiles. The tree was the harder of the two as I had to be very careful that I didn’t stretch or tear the limbs. All in all I think it turned out beautifully.
For this tile I can see now that I needed to raise the compass slightly so that the S isn’t hidden behind the easel. I will also confess that the S tore and I had to put it back together. Patience is going to be the name of the game with vinyl. I should also mention that I went the thrifty route and used clear contact paper as my transfer paper. In my YouTube and message board wanderings I saw that method suggested multiple times. It worked for me.
