Applying vinyl to painted canvas.
My daughter was doing this canvas for her husband for his office. I told her we needed to do a video to show how to apply the vinyl to a painted canvas. Hope it helps some of you.
Paddle Ball racquet
I has a customer who was doing a beach themed wedding. She wanted a picture of the bride and groom on paddle ball racquets. So she sent me a drawing they had and this is what we came up with. We did 16 of them. She was great to work with and sent me a photo of the finished paddle.
My daughter is getting ready for baby number two in 5 more weeks. In the process she has been moving beds and redecorating her 1st daughter's bedroom. She put this on her wall above the bed. I absolutely love it. It describes her to a "T" when she has been playing with cousins at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
You can find the cute scarf she is wearing here https://www.etsy.com/listing/210614146/babytoddlerchild-or-mommy-and-me-lace
Classy and Fun Family Organization
I absolutely love this calendar. I had a customer who wanted something for her new mudroom to help keep her family organized. She knew what she wanted, she just needed me to create it for her. This is how it turned out. I love love love how it turned out and she was kind enough to send me photos. You can order a calendar like hers HERE. She used a 16 x 20 frame and bought a foam board to put behind the calendar with a fabric to match her color scheme. She said she might switch it out during the holidays with a fun fabric to match the season. What a great idea!

Grandkids - Make Life Grand!
I thought I would post a few of the "grandkids" finished projects from some of my customers. This turned out to be a popular item for gift giving during the Christmas season! If you'd like to order vinyl for your own projects, you can find several different styles in my ETSY shop. Here are a few more examples of how customers used their vinyl.

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!

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!

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.
You can purchase the 16x20 Calendar HERE, and the Menu HERE. If you have any questions or would like to customize it in any way feel free too EMAIL us we would love to help you out!

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
