Monday Made It: Addicted to Craft Vinyl

I can not believe that I am FINALLY on summer break!  After Spring Break I felt like the end of the school year was never going to come.  Friday was my last day and I am looking forward to completing all of my summer projects, well at least most of them. :)

 Last Monday I had the privelage of giving away 3,000 books!  Our school district provides a FREE Book Fair for all K-5 students.  With the help of Scholastic our students get to take home FIVE brand new books!  It's a lot of work, but worth it all when I get to see how happy the kids are when they own books that they enjoy!

Like most of my project ideas I decided I needed a shirt for my favorite day as an Instructional Coach at the last minute. I pulled out my Cricut, found the following clip art and attempted to make myself a shirt.  I am LOVING heat transfer vinyl and will warn you now that you will most likely see LOTS of #MondayMadeIt projects with it!

Due to the detail in the original image, this shirt took forever and didn't turn out how I had planned. Either way I love the end result and received lots of compliments on it from students and teachers.

I made these t-shirts for my boys teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week. They loved them!

My friend wanted to add a decal to her husband's Yeti like cup for Father's Day. He is a huge NC State fan so I made him the NC wolf logo. I can't wait to hear about his reaction once he receives his gift!

My friend also wanted some add personalization to her dad's cups for Father's Day and requested these images.  I LOVE layering vinyl, even though it can be tricky at times. :)

My final craft vinyl project are these wine tumblers I made for my boys teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week.  They say, "Keep your Apple, I'd rather have WINE". I included a gift card in each cup to help them fill their cups up.


  1. So much cuteness!!!! Those t-shirts!!! Queen of my Classroom!!! LOVE IT!!! You make me want to get a Cricut BUT that would mean I have to find the floor of my office and get organized and that may take a while! Thanks for linking up:)

  2. I just bought a roll of iron on vinyl to use with my Cricut. I haven't worked up the courage to try it yet, but I do love those "queen of my classroom" shirts... :)

  4. I love the Queen of the Classroom shirts! I know the teachers appreciated them and loved them.

  5. I love the NC State decal. I remember when I was in eighth grade and they unexpectedly won the championship in 1983. (Yikes - dating myself here!) I have been a fan ever since.

  7. I'm so jealous of that awesome experience you got to participate in for your students! What an amazing gift! I love how you created a shirt to match the special occasion. Your vinyl game is on POINT!

  8. You need to teach me your ways!!! Do you use cricket or silhouette? I need to step up my game :)

  9. Loving those shirts!! So cute! I use a Silhouette and recently got adventurous and made fun!!

  10. I love vinyl too! The possibilities are endless. Sometimes I even look and random things and think, oh that would be cute with a vinyl monogram on it. That is how you know you really like your cutting machine!
