Fun girl's room redo.

My good friend, ok she is practically one of my daughters, wanted to redecorate her daughters room for her birthday.  She decided she wanted to put a fun tree on the wall.  Here is the picture she sent me after she put it up.  I love the colors she decided to use.

Nursery Tree

My friends are expecting their first child and wanted some vinyl in the nursery.  They decided on a tree with a scripture verse under the branches.  These are the photos she sent me.  I love how it turned out!

Applying a Quatrefoil Design Decal



I am not sure why the table looks like the wall and the wall looks like it is the table, but it is what it is :)  Hopefully this will be helpful when applying the quatrefoil design.

Iron-on Vinyl

One of the things that we love to do with Vinyl is put it on shirts. We have Iron-On Vinyl that makes making a custom shirt easy and affordable to create! Below are a few that I have made for my niece as well as one for my daughter. They turned out great, and wash just as well as normal shirts!

"I'm a cool runner" - complete with sunglasses!
"I run like a GIRL Try to keep up"
"Grandma's Girl"

One other great thing that you could do is customize a sport bag with your teams name and mascot! Like the shirts, they turn out great and are so easy to do!



If you would like to create an affordable customized shirt or bag 
4 x 5 - $5, 8 x 10 - $10.  When you want a custom item without paying the price of a single custom item at a shirt shop simply drop us a note and we'll help you design something.  There is a listing for the 4 x 5 size in my Etsy Shop

Baseball Wall

I thought this was just too cute not to post! This is a baseball wall that we did for my grandson who loves baseball. It did take a little more work but I think that the end results made it all worth it! This is an easy way to decorate a little boys room without having to repaint and repaint and repaint! Another thing that we did that went perfect with this room was the Baseball Subway Art that is found HERE. The room turned out great and my grandson loves it!

Sports decals

We had another custom order who had this sweet idea for her boys room. Such an easy and affordable way to really decorate your boys room! I think that these turned out great! You don't only have to do big decals like this for basketball, you could do soccer, baseball, football, volleyball, dance, and so many more!

Inspirational Scripture Decals

"Command Center"

A "Command Center" has become more and more popular in homes. They make it so that there is one central location in the home with all of the basic information that you would need to know. On the left hanging up is the calendar and on the right in the skinny frame is the Monday-Sunday Menu both of which were made using vinyl. These "Command Centers" will make for a more organized home and you will find them to be very helpful.

Repeating Pattern Decal

I had a customer email me because she had a plain black tray that she wanted to decorate with some sort of pattern. We decided to do a repeating pattern decal that she could either keep on the tray, or place on the tray, paint the tray and then pull the vinyl off. She ended up just liking the decal the way it was. I think that it turned out great!

You could use this decal either way and for many different fun and creative things such as putting it on Vases, Mirrors, Reception Trays, Old Windows or just what ever you would like.





If you have something dull and you want to spice it up you can find this decal HERE. Or if you would like to customize your own, feel free to shoot us an EMAIL.

Glass etching stencils

You can personalize your own dishes or make gifts!  These vinyl stencils are cut in reverse so you can put them on the bottom of your glass casserole dishes or pie plate.  Apply etching cream following the directions on the label.  Remove the decal and your design shows on the inside of the dish!  A lot of fun and there are so many options.  My favorite is the Chevron.

Holiday Fun...In August!



So this week I have had some fun creating, not only one holiday craft but two! I guess it was double the fun because I made reversible blocks, Christmas on one side, Thanksgiving or Fall on the other. I got the Idea from Pintrest, but added my own little twist. I didn't just paint the blocks, I decided to use different patterned scrapbook paper and Mod Podge my blocks. 

From the beginning: I bought some paper at our local craft store, I bought the paper that has one design on one side and another design on the other side. This way I didn't have to buy as much paper...I know I am pretty cheap, but it did save me a couple of dollars!! 

When I got home I cut out the paper to fit the blocks, and put them in the order that I wanted them in. After I cut out the Christmas paper I used them as a pattern to cut out the Fall paper. I just traced around them and then cut them. I don't have a paper cutter, but I am sure that would be the easiest way to do it. 

While I was cutting out the paper for the blocks, my sister painted the blocks that they were going to go on. We didn't bother painting the entire blocks because they would just be covered with paper anyway. 

I know she would appreciate me putting this picture online :)
As you can tell the blocks are far from perfect, but they will still look just as good even if we had taken the time to paint them all of the way.

Once the paint dried I laid the paper on top of the blocks to make sure the paper fit good and to make sure I liked how it looked.
I cut my paper pretty close to the size of the blocks as you can see here. If you want to see more of the block all you would have to do is trim the paper a little bit more...but I am pretty sure most of us could have figured that out on our own! 
Now for the fun part! Mod Podge. I like this part. How I do it is I put some on the block itself and then on the back of the paper. I place the paper on the block and then brush more on the front of the paper. It brushes on white, but when it dries it will look clear. 
Bubbles are one thing that I hate when using Mod Podge, I have found though that using thicker paper doesn't bubble as much. If you don't have thicker paper, that's fine too, you just have to not be a perfectionist at first. The paper will bubble, but try not to mess with it too much, when it dries most of the bubbles, if not all of them, will fade away. It is kind of like magic! It will only make you crazy in the process if you are like me! 
While you let the Mod Podge dry... (PS only do one side at a time, or else you will have a mess.) Anyway while it dries you can start with the vinyl. It will come in a sheet like this. It will have a clear plastic over the letters that you will peel off later but for now you can cut the individual letters apart. It doesn't have to look fancy at all. (You can get the letters from The Vinyl Express for $6.00.)
As you can tell not fancy! 
Once the Mod Podge dried (mine took about an hour to dry, you can wait a little bit longer if you want to be safe though) I placed the letters on the blocks so I could tell where I would want them to be placed. Then one by one I peeled the paper off and placed the vinyl letters on the blocks. I then took off the clear paper that covered the letters, leaving only the vinyl on the blocks. 
It should look something like this.
This is what the first side looked like. Then I started the whole process over and did the same thing to the other side of the blocks. 
This is what the other side looked like when I finished them. 
I think they turned out super cute. 
They would be cute with some Fall leaves or ornaments and jingle bells. My favorite though that would work for both would be pine cones! 
What a fun addition to any home! You can also save some space in your storage for afterwards since they double for two holidays! :)  ~Kelsie

What can I do with an old window?

I have a customer in St. Louis that had several old windows she wanted to put together for a show she was participating in.  She asked me to do the vinyl for her.  The windows turned out great and she has had requests for more.  I thought I'd share the windows she did in case you are looking for a few ideas. 
You can purchase this decal for your window in my Etsy shop!  Click here to go to the listing.
