Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Vinyl EDU Cricut Crawl and Blog Candy!

Welcome to The Stamping Tree and the FCCB Vinyl EDU Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!

This week we are challenging you to create a project using vinyl you have cut using your Cricut. We have a fabulous sponsor, Cricket Vinyl Supplies. If we get 100 participants in this challenge, Cricket Vinyl Supplies will give away a Cricut Expression package that includes a Cricut Expression machine, deep cut blade, Jasmine Cricut cartridge, ten 12” x 12” assorted sheets of matte vinyl and one 12” x 12” gridded transfer tape. How exciting is that??

If you've come from Emily at Mollie's Motif, you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE  to start at the beginning.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at ALL our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a project using vinyl at FCCB!




For my project,  I made Thanksgiving wall decor.  I spray painted a wooden plaque from Michael's almond and chose the Thanksgiving subway art from Word Collage.  I cut it at 11", which made it about 9" wide, from several colors of vinyl--metallic gold, burgundy, dark brown, forest green, and orange.  I wish you could see it in person--it turned out gorgeous!  I plan on ordering some more of the gold and burgundy at least--very pretty!

Since it is Vinyl University, I even made a video showing how I made this.  Check it out!






AND to top it all off, I have BLOG CANDY!!! Who wants blog candy?  Why, everybody of course!  Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win!  One comment per person please, and include your contact info please.  You could win a $10 Joann's gift card!

Your next stop is Ro at Toodle Noodle Creative.  Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!

Happy Crawling!!
Here is the line up in case you get lost (please be sure to make everyone's blog address link to their blogs):

Beautiful wall hanging, I hate the thought that winter is on its way! Seams like summer just arrived, but your colours are just perfect for the upcoming change in weather. TFS and for the chance to win.

Wonderful. I'm impressed with the change in colors. I have the Word cartridge but not used it. Just like I have some vinyl and not used it. Will have to watch some of the videos to try it out. Are the words individual. Seems like it would be difficult to get the words from not tearing.
