FCCB Vinyl *Cricut Crawl*

Hello everyone, it's time to get started for our 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 machine.

Our Cricut Crawl begins here at my blog Robin's Creative Cottage I'm so glad you've joined us today. 
There will be Blog Candy along the way at our DT members' blogs, as well as a Grand Prize at FCCB for one participant who submits a project using vinyl at FCCB!

If you've never used vinyl it is very easy to use with your cricut machine, cuts smoothy and can cut very intricate shapes easily. I cut using settings all set on 3, blade, pressure and speed.
We have a fabulous sponsor this week at FCCB, Cricket Vinyl Supplies
They have generously donated vinyl to FCCB design team members, you will love this quality vinyl... thank you 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.

 Included: 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??

All my images for my wood blocks are from the Happy Hauntings cricut cartridge.
Although my tree the pumpkin eyes and mouths look white during the day, this vinyl "Glows In The Dark".... it is so cool!!!  I tried to get a photograph of the vinyl with the lights off, but I couldn't get a good photo with my camera :(
This wood block is approx 5" square, makes a fun Halloween home decor item.
My BOO is also using the glow in the dark vinyl, the larges block is approx. 2 1/4" square.

  9. Like the Halloween blocks. Not cut vinyl on my Cricut yet. I have some and have not tried. You've inspired me to give it a try. Just upgraded my Gypsy so I could link the new CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridg. Could not upgrade this wkend. It kept pausing for long times & then would return an error. Finally got it upgraded & linked this morn.
