Cricut Explore Vinyl Decal

Hello, friends!

Today I have something really fun! I noticed that the machine came with several different projects to decorate your machine and your carrying bag that is included. They are all really cute, but I decided to design my own. 

The flower is from the Anna Griffin bundle that came with the HSN special. If you have not bought your machine yet, but want some of the Anna content including this flower, it will be released in May for purchase. 

The font is Don Juan. I have always loved this font and I thought it went perfectly with the flower. I have the file below, if you would like to make this for your Explore!

You will need:
Yellow vinyl
Green vinyl
White vinyl
Aqua vinyl
Dark aqua vinyl
Vinyl transfer tape

Cricut Explore Vinyl Decal file


I will be back tomorrow with the Explore carrying bag project.






To win:






 Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!

With Joanne's having their National Crafting Month sale on, I gave in to temptation and ordered more cartridges at $20. One of them is the chalkboard fonts. When I wanted to make cards yesterday, I realized I didn't have any! Your projects always turn out awesome, Melanie. Is it always on your first try? Thanks for sharing?

Had the Cricut Expressions 2 and a week later they announced the Cricut Explore. I returned the Expressions and ordered the Explore on HSN and it is going to talk until April 25 for delivery.
Going Cricut crazy right now.

ScrappySue said...

How clever! I love the way you decorated your Explore! The color scheme and flower just make the right touches. Good job!

Susan S. said...

What a darling design, Melanie! I always love what you do, but I'm especially happy that you mentioned the Don Juan font. I have it, but I'm not sure that I've ever used it. Sometimes it's really great when designers refocus our attention on products we ALREADY own and can make more use of, in addition to highlighting the new stuff. Thank you! I never really LOOKED at that font until now. It IS really nice.

I'm really loving the fact that Explore is delivering on its promises. It's renewed my faith in Cricut.

Great choice of vinyl decoration. I wonder how I'll decorate mine?

Nice! I finally got around to putting vinyl on my Expression yesterday after 2 years. Maybe today I will pretty up my Explore.

SouthernMrs said...

Hi Melanie,
I just LOVE your flower and design. thanks for sharing your file with us. Can you please tell me what type of vinyl you use on your projects and where you purchase it from? Are there specific color names? It's so hard to purchase vinyl online when I don't know what the exact colors are. Any help appreciated! Thank you!
