Personalise your stationery using Cricut Joy and Smart Vinyl!
I adore cute stationery (I'm a serious notbook hoarder!), so I love that I can design my own notebooks using Cricut Joy and a hint of smart vinyl (or any vinyl in fact!).
I chose pink sparkle vinyl and a girl power message for my latest fave notebook and I am so pleased wth the outcome! In under ten mins, I'm ready to take down all of the notes and to do lists for my week ahead.
YOU WILL NEED:
-Cricut Smart Vinyl (I used Pink shimmer)
-Cricut Strong grip transfer tape.
-Cricut Weeding Tool
-Cricut Scraper Tool
-Cricut Joy (You can use any Cricut machine you want with any vinyl just pop it onto the mat!)
Load image 'I Can and I will Silhouette' #M12D8E917 into a new Design Space canvas, Resize the image to fit onto your notebook.
Next load the pink shimmer smart vinyl face up into your Cricut Joy machine. Set the material setting to Smart vinyl shimmer and start cutting.
Once the machine has finished cutting, remove the vinyl from the machine. Carefully cut around your design so that you can use the remaining vinyl another time.
Next, take your weeding tool and carefully remove all of the excess vinyl leaving only the images on the backing sheet. Be sure to remove the pieces from the insside of the image too.
Next, take a piece of strong grip transfer tape (Only use strong grip for shimmer and glitter vinyl!) and lay it onto of your design, then scrape both sides of the vinyl.
Leave the vinyl for a few minutes before carefully peeling back the transfer tape layer, making sure that the design is stuck to it as you pull it away from the carrier sheet.
Stick your design in place onto your notebook, then give a really good scrape with the scraper tool to sure that the design is well stuck down.
Then peel back the transfer tape on itself as flat as you can, leaving your design behind on your notebook.
You have now created a custom notebook design, you'll be the talk of the office, no doubt about it!
