You know what I love about this project, besides it’s supremely cute Scotty? The price. I used vinyl scraps and bought this vase and candy from the Dollar Store. SWEET!!! AND…the Scotty cutting file I’m using, Great Scott It’s Love, is only $2 right now. PAWS for that awesomeness. LOL! Here’s a link to the whole Great Scott Collection. I think it’s so cute.
It takes a little planning but you can lay your scraps out on your virtual and actual mat and cut everything out at one time. Notice how the images on my computer screen match where the vinyl is? You can do this! Just to be sure…you might want to do a test cut with paper. I’m just sayin’.
Today I’m using the Silhouette Cameo to cut my vinyl. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while then you know that I have a DVD about using vinyl with the Cricut. Why use the Silhouette Cameo then? Well, I like the options that using a machine like this gives. I’m able to import .svg and other files from a variety of different sources instead of only using what’s available on a cartridge. I still love the Cricut though, you can be sure of that! This is just another option for creating.
I am using a Cricut mat in my Silhouette. I prefer it over the Silhouette mats and it fits…so YAY!
I’ve weeded the vinyl and covered it with transfer tape. Now I’ll layer this black piece over the white piece on the left. That’s what gives the scotty the whites of his eyes. Honestly, you could just cut a tiny piece of white vinyl and put it behind his eyes unless this is going on glass where the back side might be seen and therefore would look…cruddy.
TA DA! I layered that Scotty on the white like a pro! (Actually, it’s a fraction of an inch off but we’re ignoring it. LOL!) I used to do this professionally but anyone can learn to use vinyl. I PROMISE. Just give it a try! Alrighty, now we’re going to layer these other pieces. Except…well, this pro cut the scarf pieces on the wrong color. Bah ha ha! It happens. I cut them out again reversing the pinks.
Scotty is covered in transfer tape and ready to move on to the heart vase. ARF!
He’s looking pretty good on his trip to the vase.
I was going to give this away but I think I kinda LOVE IT…so it’s living on my desk for now. Arf! See all the cute Scotty cut files and images like the one I used at Lettering Delights. Now you go try it!
