Vinyl and my cricut

Spent some time this morning in my scrapbook room working on a couple of projects with my cricut machine and some vinyl.  Let me just say one thing if you have a cricut machine and have not tried using vinyl then you have no idea what you are missing out on.

The first thing that I added my decorative touches to was this tin utensil holder for a friend.   She said that she purchased it on clearance last season at Dillards and thinks it was for holding glass bottles not knives, spoons and forks, which is what she has been using it for.  It really turned out cute.  If you're wondering it is brown not black dots with the white.  I wouldn't mind having one for myself.  too cute!!!

My second project and the rest of my morning projects were for me.  I've decorated lots of buckets over the years but this one is going to be kept on the covered patio so that sunscreen and bug spray is within reach outside and no one has to run inside for that stuff.

Now this project I did not do this morning but thought I would share it since tomorrow is Father's day.  I did this back in the winter.  The plate is from the dollar store.  I made several of them , one for almost every occasion to switch out on this cookbook stand in my kitchen.  That is were my next project comes into play.

This white plate I picked up at TJ Maxx last summer and I've been wanting to do something with it but wasn't sure what.  I thought about using it as a dry erase board but wasn't too crazy about the idea. Then I was coming into the problem of having nothing to put on my stand during the occasions when I didn't have a plate, so this is what I came up with.  I'm pleased with it.  Not to sure if I love the font, haven't used this cricut font too much.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday and a wonderful weekend.

God's way is perfect. All the LORD's promises prove true.

Psalm 18:30

Blessing to all~

I'm redoing Zoe's room and may need to call on you for some vinyl lettering!!!
Glad to see you blogging! I'm trying to be a better blogger myself. Especially since my babies are growing SO fast!
