Cricut Imagine Printable Vinyl & 3M Post-It Craft Paper

Cricut Printable Vinyl on left – 3M Post-It Craft Paper on right

I’ll keep this brief.  I’ve used a lot of vinyl.  So, I was excited to give the new Cricut printable vinyl a try in my Imagine.  Well, the Imagine certainly can print well on it.  My only real complaint about it is that it is not as sticky and does not have as thin a consistency as regular Cricut Vinyl (which I love).  I’ll give it another try soon. 😉

Here are all of the images I chose to print and cut using the Cricut Printable vinyl.

I figured it made sense to use this setting on the printable vinyl.  Um, duh! 😉

Here it is all printed and cut.  Next, I weeded it and stuck it to my Imagine!  The Imagine can make much smaller cuts than the Expression.  I’d say that’s the #1 thing I like best about the Imagine.  I just wish that it was more compact!

POST-IT CRAFT PAPER…I just had to use it again today.

I used the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge for everything in this post.

Yesterday, you saw me use the Post-It Craft paper that 3M sent me to try.  Click HERE for that post.  The truth is that it is so easy to use I just wanted to use it again today.  So, I cut out this “Happy Haunting” sentiment with it.

I cut out the shadowed background and then I cut out the sentiment in orange.

This Post-It craft paper peels off so easily and is repositionable.  Wonderful!  Plus, you can print on it!!

I started thinking about what else I normally would do to paper.  After all, it IS craft PAPER.  So…let’s Stickle that baby!

Woo hoo!  The best thing about this paper is that I can just peel it off and stick it somewhere else if I want to move it.  AWESOME!

Don’t forget to leave a comment to be entered for the Cuttlebug dies and folders AND the deep cut blade from yesterday’s BLOG HOP!  Click HERE for that!

  16. Gosh, I have never used this sticky 3M paper or vinyl but you make it look so easy and awesome! Thanks for the inspiration! :)Kelly

  17. Thanks for the Post-it love!! This stuff will stick to walls like the vinyl….but you can remove it and reuse it when you store your pieces on a clean piece of copy paper.

  31. I have GOT to get me some of this stuff! I wonder if WM carries it??

  33. Love the font of this! Very cool!

  34. I love the thought of decorating the expression (or any machine). I haven’t done this – mine gets packed up after each weekend so it doesn’t get dusty, and so my kids don’t play with it 🙂 Maybe someday we’ll move and I’ll have a craft room where I can leave my stuff out 🙂
    Do you really find the Imagine to cut better? I didn’t order it – my expression is only a year old, and the Imagine is a lot of money right now. Maybe next year sometime.

  36. scottandcarr says:

    oh…so is the 3M Post it paper actually repositionable vinyl, or am I getting the two things mixed up?

  37. I wonder why the Imagine cuts smaller things better. Hmm…
