Last weekend, I decided to use the Cricut that I HAD to have :). Mom bought me a Cricut Expression 2 for Christmas this past year, and I haven't had much time to play with it. But finally, the stars aligned, Amelia took a nap, Aaron worked in the basement, and I, for once didn't need a nap (I know-don't die of shock). I was inspired by my friend Emily at Sugar for Breakfast. She did an awesome front door redo at her house this past month.
I purchased some black vinyl from Wal-Mart (the ONLY store in our small town) for about $10. I used Cricut Craft Room to line up my lettering in the most efficient way possible. I chose a cute font, and made it as big as the computer would let me. I cut the vinyl, and used painters tape to apply the lettering on the door. It was a little tricky because I couldn't see what I was doing. I'm not one to measure-I'm a eye-ballin' kind of girl. Here is the painters tape on the front door:
I started peeling off the tape.
This is what eye-ballin' gets you...oopsies! the "to the" is a little low, but I honestly don't mind it much. Looks like the front door needs a little touch up. Don't worry, the grammar police got the better of me and I added an apostrophe.
Here is the zoomed out version with our cute Spring wreath. The birds even love this wreath-they keep trying to build a nest in it!
It's a good start, but I suspect that I will re-do it even bigger.
What do you think???
