I need your help!! I can’t decide what quote to put with this pretty dancing lady. It’s on the wall in my new craft room (previously a guest room/kid’s game room that they kindly gave up for me). I’m mostly moved in to my new room but have done no decorating. What would you put on the wall as the quote? I’ll narrow the ideas you give me down to a few of my favorites and then let you all vote for your faves on Facebook. Whichever one gets the most votes will go on my craftroom wall!
I just LOVE this pretty wall vinyl decoration I created using the Cricut Shall We Dance cartridge. Having trouble finding that cart? It was a Cricut Circle release. If you’re part of the Cricut Circle but missed that cartridge release you can currently find it on the Cricut Rewards site for 1000 points.
Need vinyl? I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.
Does this mat seem long? It is!
I used my Cricut Expression 2 and the Cricut 12-by-24-Inch Cutting Mat to create the largest cut that I could without using my Gypsy. If I’d used my Gypsy I could have made the image longer and thinner to fit the mat completely. I did do that when I made these angels for my walls Christmas 2010.
That’s what I’ll be cutting. I love how the CE2 shows where the image will cut before it does. What a nice touch. No guess work! Love it! This is the main image. I’ll also be adding layers of vinyl to this base cut.
Here I’m cutting the eyes and hair. Remember to make the image what YOU want. I stuck with these colors because I like red and am a brunette, but this chickie could easily be a blonde, redhead or even have green hair if you so desire! Make the skin tone whatever best fits you. Change up the dress for some added fun.
All right! We’re all cut out and ready to layer! I used transfer tape to make my vinyl layering MUCH EASIER!

Friends Ruthie & Theresa made me that banner for my b’day!
Now she’s all layered and living happily on a short wall in my craft room. She may look small, but she’s about 17″ long. You know what used to be on that wall? This vinyl wall art. Clicking here will show you how the room used to look. Now that it’s not a kid game/guest room I’m girling it up a little.
