BeaInspired – Vinyl

I spent a few days this New Year’s weekend helping my sister prepare for her little one that is due in mid-January!  It was my first experience with Provocraft’s Cricut Cuttables Vinyl. My sister asked that the quote “Thank heaven for little girls” be displayed on the wall as well as some type of border. The interesting roadblock we faced was their current living situation. My sister and her husband currently rent, and they are unable to paint the rooms in their home. We were faced with the challenge of bringing color and character to a room without painting or damaging the walls.

I watched a few videos and did some research on the best way to attach the vinyl to the wall.  In the end, the solution was simple, I cut out each letter individually using my SCAL software and my Cricut Expression, removed the backing and simply stuck the vinyl to the wall. Due to the texturizing on the wall, the vinyl is easily removed when needed. I also cut some brown, pink and green polka dots to create the border effect in the room. The project was quick and easy; it provided exactly what they were looking for and they are now ready (and so are we!) for their little one to arrive. Thanks for reading.

Here’s a hint: If you are looking to complete a similar project consider borrowing or investing in a laser level. It makes the job much faster and there is no pencil line left over!

    Great Post!! I love your tip on using a laser level. I found your site doing a search on others that offer free SVG files. You have a great assortment and a wonderful style.

    If you are wanting to get more into vinyl I would recommend using Orcale 631 Repositioning Vinyl. It works great and very easy to cut. In some case may even be cheaper than the Provo.

    Best Wishes and I can’t wait to see what your next project will be.
