Vinyl Tiles

It's been a while since I've updated! I think it's about time for some new stuff don't you?

I've done several tiles in the past and I have no idea why I've never blogged about them before. Well, I guess now is the time! Here are a few samples of tiles that I have done:

This one could also say "Wise Men Still Seek Him. My husband doesn't really care for that quote so we went with "O Holy Night" instead. Both work. This one is also done in the Black Matte vinyl while all of the others are done in the Black Glossy Vinyl. But you could do any color you like.

The price for these is as follows. If you would like to do one or two tiles it is $11.50 for the vinyl. If you would like to do more for Gifts, Super Saturdays, Craft days, etc. If you order 5 or more the price drops down to $8.00 per tile for the vinyl. All of these tiles were bought at just a regular home improvement store. Tiles are always on sale and can usually be bought for less than $1.00 each! It's a nice easy inexpensive gift. Great, simple ideas for Christmas. (HINT, HINT!)

Boy's Room Decor: Vinyl Rocket ships & Space

Here's some pictures from an order I did recently for a "space" themed bedroom for two very cute and fun little boys. 

The rocket ships are done in silver while the moon and some of the stars are done in golden yellow. And then of course the quote and the rest of the stars are done in white. So much fun!

Vinyl Quote for Classroom

Now that school is back in session for the most part, what a great way to display your classroom motto on mantra. It makes it a little nicer than using the usually die cuts that are available at all school. :) Perfect touch for a classroom.

Quote reads: Nothing in nature is one color...we are a part of nature.
What a great quote!

More Vinyl Wall Art

I've slacked off the last little bit on my posting but I'm back! I've got a few pictures from some recent clients that I can't wait to share! Also, if you have vinyl done by me and have not sent me a picture of your stuff I would love to have a copy so I can showcase your stuff. I love pictures of my creations and I love showing them off even more!

Anyway, recently I did a bunch of signs for a client for her house and I think they all turned out great! So here they are!

This first one is in the client's kitchen above her window. She is a really tiny girl so this sign has a bit of humor mixed in with it. :)

This next sign is in her family room. Perfect quote for a family room!

Perfect touch for her little boy's room. This was a two part application. The Moon and stars were one piece of vinyl (dark yellow) and then the quote was placed on top in black vinyl. So cute!

Finally, a quote for her dining room. Perfect!

More Paper Airplanes!

 I just received the pictures from the paper airplanes I did in orange vinyl. I had forgotten that when I did these I did the dashes in black. So here's the pictures for you all to ohh and ahh over! Don't they look great?

Paper Airplanes...Well, more like Vinyl Airplanes

I'm so excited to finally get some pictures of these! I've done a couple of these so it's fun to have pictures to show them off. They turned out so cute! I have now done these airplanes in orange and red vinyl. Both turned out really cute! It would also look cute if the airplanes and the dashes were different colors!

Girls Camp/Youth Camp Craft with Vinyl

OK, so I know I'm a little late in the game this year for most Girl's Camps/Youth Camps out there but if you are a procrastinator (like I can be at times!) or are already on the ball and looking for ideas for next year. (I wish I was like you!) Here is a cute idea I just did for a Girl's Camp that will be taking place this week that I'm sure will be a huge success!

The vinyl is 1" tall x 6" long done is white glossy vinyl. The font is Tangerine. This is one of my new favorites!

If you are looking to do a large number of this for a craft (you can whatever saying you would like) let me know and I'll give you the discounted group rate.

Count Your Many Blessings Vinyl Wall Art

I've had a picture of my children hanging in my family room for close to a year now and every time I look at the picture I felt that it needed a little extra something to help it out. I often have a hard time with finding vinyl for my own home just because I'm so picky about what quote or what not I want. A few weeks ago I was looking online for some inspiration for a client and came across this quote. It was one of those head smacking moments. Such a simple phrase that I've heard my entire life! Of course it would fit perfectly with the picture of my three greatest blessings. Cheesy I know, but it was the perfect quote for the picture.

I knew the quote alone would be fine but the scrolls in the corner just add the perfect extra touch.

All of this vinyl is done in brown vinyl. The size is 8" tall and 27" long.

Here's a closer shot of the scrolls. It's actually three coordinating scrolls grouped together to look like one big one.
I love the way it turned out and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

No Soliciting Sign

Probably the most common email inquiry I get is about No Soliciting Signs. I would say I get at least 2-3 a week if not more. Being a Stay At Home Mom I know exactly what it's like to get pestered all the time by the wonderful door to door salesmen. So what better way to rid them, then to have a No Soliciting sign.

My signs are VERY affordable and are so easy to apply. The price generally for my No Soliciting signs is only $2.00, and since they are so small I don't charge shipping because they fit into a normal envelope that only requires normal postage. My most common inquiry about my No Soliciting Signs is about this sign. I've cut this sign I don't know how many times and it is always a favorite. It's a clean font, yet very legible and not boring either.

Recently a client graciously sent me a picture of the same sign in black. The size is roughly 3 inches tall and 5 inches wide.
Such a classic look and gets the point across perfectly.

Kisses for You Glass Block Vinyl Project

I did the vinyl for this project not too long ago for a craft night for a ladies church group. After they applied the vinyl they filled the blocks with Hershey's kisses. How cute!

7 1/2 inch square glass block
black vinyl (matte)
Hershey's Kisses

If you would like to do this for your family, neighbors, church group, end of year teacher's gifts (HINT, HINT), craft night with friends, or whatever. Send me an email and they can be done and in the mail to you the very next day. I also have it set up to say "Kisses from Grandma" as well.

Names/Girls bedroom Vinyl Decor

My friend recently redid her twin girls' bedroom. She got her inspiration from Pottery Barn and recruited me to help out with some of the vinyl.
Here is the finished product. I did the names for her and she already had the vinyl birds. But I can do similar birds if you are interested. The font was a basic serif font (Georgia). It's done on Matte White Vinyl.

Here's a closer look.

So fun and so classic!

Glass Blocks/Wedding Center Piece Decorations

A couple months back I was able to do some vinyl for my husband's cousin that was getting married. For the table center pieces at the reception they had bought some glass blocks. You can find these at most craft stores with large holes already in place or you can also buy them from your local hardware store and cut the holes yourself. (But that route is slightly more difficult.) Anyway, they took the engagement pictures of the happy couple and put them inside the glass blocks. On the outside they placed vinyl with popular phrases about love on them on one side. On the other side were one to three word phrases in the bottom corner again relating to love.

The blocks turned out very nicely. I used two different fonts to give the phrases some contrast and a more "artsy" look. I used the fonts Trajan and Corinthia. I think those two fonts are a great contrast with on another.

Anyway, here are the pictures. Click on them to get a closer glimpse.

**If you are getting married this spring or summer and would like to do this project or another vinyl project for your wedding let me know and we'll work out a special wedding package that would be discounted from my normal vinyl pricing.**

No Soliciting Sign

I took a little hiatus from updating my blog here. Sorry! But now I'm back and promise to update more often.
A few weeks back I did this order and it was fun! It put a new twist to the No Soliciting sign. The client wanted to make sure that the kids knew they were welcome to sell their fundraiser goodies but they didn't want any other solicitors so this is the sign we came up with.
Originally I did it in red and black vinyl but the client decided they wanted white instead. But I was able to get pictures of both signs for them. The signs were exactly the same but with different colors.
The wording reads:
No Handbills or Flyers
Unless under 12 years old and
Selling Cookies, Popcorn or Candy
For Scouts, School or Sports.

I think they should be able to get their point across. :)

New white sign

They also wanted a couple signs for their sliding doors to remind guest to step down. The signs were done in white but the 2nd one makes it look like it is black.

Hawaiian Welcome Sign

"E Komo Mai"
This was fun to do a different Welcome Sign. This was for the winner of my drawing a couple months ago. She wanted to share her Hawaiian heritage with others and what a great way to do so with your front door! She said that it means "enter, welcome". What a great greeting to your home and also what a great conversation starter!
The font is AL Afternoon Delight and it was cut in White Vinyl.

Favorite Things Board


I hope everyone had a great Holiday season! We had a great time at our house. Laid back and relaxed just the way I like it! My kids are back in school now and I'm ready to get back into the swing of things! Hopefully this year will bring some great changes here at my little place. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes as planned and I have some fun new stuff here in the next couple of months!

Anyway, back to business. Here's just a simple little board I did the vinyl for just before Christmas. It made a great Christmas present and what a fun gift for Grandma to show off her cute grand kids! I've done a couple different styles for this sign. This one was fun because I added some flowers to the sides to make up for the small font. The board is just a 2x4 cut to the size you want with a groove cut into the top for the metal part. What a fun sign!
