Royal Birthday Ball Blog Hop – Vinyl & Painted Crown

“It’s Good to be the Queen” vinyl lettering on painted ceramic crown.

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Queen’s Royal Birthday Blog Hop!  I thought the Scrapbooking Queen deserved a crown, especially one that can hang in her craft room reminding people of her queenly status.  😉

I bought this ceramic crown at Hobby Lobby.  My gold paint and I had a little fight before my project began.  I won!  That’s why he looks all leaky.  Hey, I know martial arts…watch out paint dabber!

All painted up with pink!  I was going to use the gold paint too, but I decided to use…

SHIMMER MOD PODGE!!  I thought that would be a fun change.

Here I’m using the software that came with the Silhouette SD I just bought.  I’m loving it!  It did a great job cutting out this vinyl saying that I created.  The font I used is fairly thin, but the Silhouette handled it pretty well.  There are a couple of super thin places that didn’t come out perfectly, but again…they were REALLY thin. 😉

Need vinyl?  I like to buy mine from Expressions Vinyl.

If you want to learn more about using vinyl, you should check out my Cricut Vinylology DVD! 🙂

  1. Wow! This is so awesome. I need to get my Silhouette back out. I used to use it all of the time but since I got a cricut and no longer had a laptop I stopped using it. I now have a new laptop and can bring it along to scrap with friends.
