Book Worm and a Cricut Project

Hi Everyone!

Today I decided to play with my Cricut Expression. I picked up a new cartridge at CHA last week, Create-a-Critter, after I took The Pink Stampers Cricut class. They offered the supplies we used in the class for a seriously great discount when the class was over. I just couldn't pass it up the price was amazing. I totally LOVED Robyn and Carly and the class was so much fun. These girls just plain ROCK lol.

I just HAD HAD to use it today. Like most of you may be as well, I am a BIG bookworm. I love to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea and just get lost from reality :)
Now you ask, "How big of a bookworm am I" .....well....

BIG and that's not even all of them! I have about 300 books in total in my collection. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a good romance novel lol.

Since I purchased these shelves I have been contemplating cricuting them up, that's what I call it CRICUTING IT UP, PUMP IT UP :) and today I finally did it.

I love him :) I used vinyl to cut all the pieces and then layered them. Once I was done layering all the pieces I applied the whole decal to the wood and then added some blingy rhinestones. The best part of these is if you ever tire of it, they peel right back off and do not harm the wood.

I love how it turned out! I found perfect fitting rhinestones for his antennas.

Here is a close up of the flower.

I used the Create-a-Critter Cricut Cartridge to create the Worm, Plantin School for the flower, and Sure Cuts A Lot to use my own computer font (Balloon) for the wording. The Vinyl I purchased in rolls at Lowe's when they clearanced out all there wallpaper (which occurred last year). They had GIANT rolls for 1.00$ What a deal! I picked up about 30 rolls in all different colors and I am so glad that I did.

I think I will add to this (that's why I started at the top of the space available) - I just haven't decided what. If I do add to it - I will of course show the pics here of the new look.

I hope you guys like this project as much as I do.
