Welcome to Scrapping Runner Creations and the FCCB Vinyl 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 transer tape. How exciting is that??
If you've come from Jilliene at Jilliene Designing 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 created this fun fall lantern. I decorated the lantern with images of leaves and trees using great vinyl in fall colors from Cricket Vinyl Supplies. The vinyl cut perfectly and I didn't have any issues getting it to the transfer tape and then onto the lantern.
I found the lantern on sale at the local Target store. The cute fall-themed images are from Create a Critter 2 and Stretch Your Imagination. Here are some close-ups.
And here's a picture of what the lantern looks like lit up. I used a battery operated, flameless candle so I don't have to worry about the metal parts of the lantern getting hot or soot from the candle getting the glass dirty.
Blog Candy!! I'm giving away two fun stamp sets to one lucky winner! The Scrapbooking Queen's Royal Saying Too and The Queen Bee sets. All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this post. I will announce the winner next Monday!!
Your next stop is Joneita at Create with Joneita. 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!!
