I'm so excited to join in with Toni at Design Dazzle for the Halloween Bash Blog Hop. I have seen some amazing projects thus far and I hope mine can live up to some hype. Make sure you read the entire post to see everyones project!
A few weeks ago when I was at Cricut Headquarters, they debuted their new feature of Print then Cut. Us bloggers, being the lucky ducks we are, were able to bring home some of their new Window Cling. It's exactly what you'd think it is. It's rolled up just like vinyl, has a backing to be able to apply it or you can individual peel it off and apply it that way. It cut so smoothly, rolled out awesome and I have had zero issues with it since I put it on my window. It's a pretty rad product.
What I was able to do was just choose my shapes in Design Space and size them out. I chose these mice from the Frightful Affair cartridge and used the Soiree font. I sized them out to the spacing I wanted and I cut it on the custom setting with the Smart Set Dial and chose Window Cling. You can also choose Vinyl and it will do the same kiss cut for you.
I then just cut these individually out. My four-year-old helped me put these on the window. There was no tearing or anything. If there was a wrinkle, just readjust it. It really is just a fabulous product. When I take them off, I'll just put it in a ziplock bag and save it for next year. You'll want to be sure and make sure there is no creases in it because those will most likely show in the following years.
So if you wanted to stick these on so that the letters were facing towards you and not backwards, you'd simply mirror them. That way when you peeled off the excess, you could have a straight line rather than have it looked scattered like I have below. For the skull, again that was from A Frightful Affair and I just typed my letters and placed them on top of the skull. I them selected the entire shape along with the letters and hit attach. It made the whole shape one so that I could have it cut it out of the head.
Just a little more something to spook your neighbors with! I'm just warning everyone that I do not decorate for Fall/Thanksgiving. I just send it straight into Christmas. I love the spookiness of this holiday and the whimsy. That's why I love products like these cause you can make what you want because you can't find things like this pre-made. I hope that you love it and I hope you'll check out my other Halloween goodies! Like my Ghoulish Eyeballs and my Spooky Halloween Wreath! Thanks so much for stopping by!
