I LOVE vinyl!

Hello and good morning all my bloggy crafty friends!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, I know I did! 

Ok so I am so super excited because I took the plunge and used vinyl for the first time! I won a bundle of 10  12x24 sheets of vinyl in my choice of colors on Ebay for $10!!  I have been wanting to try to cut vinyl on my cricut for a LONG time but was intimidated, but it is so easy! I want to put vinyl on everything now lol there are so many home projects I am planning to do! On to my project!

So as many of you know my son Daryl is in football, I am so proud of my baby and wanted to make something to show it! What started out as an idea for me turned into something bigger and by the time I knew it my mother in law and sisters in law and sister and her hubby and my grandparents wanted one too! So Back to ebay I went and found these..

I got 12 of them for $48 (which is a really good deal since at the store they are about $10 each) as soon as they got here I got to creating! This is what they came out looking like!
 I LOVE them! I decided after I took these pics to add KMS on the side (Kingsbourgh Middle School) and for mine on the other side it will say MOM! (I'll update the pic as soon as I am done)! We used them Saturday for his game and they were a HIT! I got 3 orders for some lol I wasnt' even planning on making them for anyone else, it made me feel cool haha!
I am working on a special one just for Daryl to use! I can't wait to post pics!! Normally he is # 40 but when they play at home they use different uniforms so he is #10 I want to share my fav pic of me and my baby boy this was taken last week after his game.
They were doing their FIRE POWA pose lol! Crazy boys! It was a great game they won 24-0!

Ok that is all for today!! I hope you will check back when I update the pics later! I also have a post planned for later for a storage idea for your image stamps and twine! SEE ya later!

Carley said...

Oh you are such a mom like I am going to be! I love it! If you want me to share some GREAT wholesale websites that I order from email or message me on FB! I make these kinds of things all the time I am sooo shocked this is your first vinyl project be prepared to be addicted lol! I make so much with vinyl and I usually don't post because I either forget or they are gifts for friends and I don't want them to see it before I get it to them lol! Since I own my own business I can order from them but I have one that anyone can order from your order just has to be 100. I can give you all details just message me! Love ya! Oh I got my stamps today!!! I LOVE them thank you so much!

OH Yeah vinyl is a blast. My neice and sister in law have the same camera so my brother had me make their names for their cameras and they loved it. I also have vinyl all over my house and the neighbors had me make decals for their trucks. My brother had me make one for his truck but I won't even mention what it was. lol
