Design Team: Debi Tullier Week 5 Term 3

Gift Making Time

Mother's Day is around the corner, and Debi has brought some inspiration! Using and inexpensive tile, the eCraft and some vinyl, she created an elegant way to display your family initials!

See how she did it:

I love the opportunity that this Month offers. Mother’s Day is very special to many of us. I love to make gifts to show my love for those who mean so much to me. Funny as it sounds I have several friends that aren’t Moms in the traditional sense but still deserve the title. So when I was out and about shopping with a good friend, she saw a monogrammed tile and was so wanting one. I held my breath and my mouth and knew my Craftwell eCraft could pull this off easily!

Supplies:

Tile from Lowes

Craftwell Vinyl from   Fotobella

Craftwell tool kit (I love   it)

eCraft Pro Software and a TTF font   (you can use any on your computer)

transfer tape (masking   tape)

Picture stand from dollar   store

Purpleberry eCraft Die Cutting   Machine

I love cutting vinyl with my eCraft. The settings are so easy.. Pressure 1, No tabs and No mat just feed the vinyl in and go. I edited the letter in my software and then sent to the machine.


I love the way my machine cuts vinyl.

Next I weeded my image, this task was made easier with the use of my pick which comes in the Craftwell tool kit.  I then  applied masking tape to the image so that I could place and adhere it to the tile.


I am so pleased with the outcome and delighted to see how thin my lines actually cut.
I did use a new blade but was just so delighted with this cut!

Next week a fabric surprise for mom! Happy May to all, I love spring!

  1. Debi, what a beautiful gift! I just LOVE that alpha script! Which TTF font did you use? And where can I find it, so I can make one of these for my kitchen? Thanks! Cindy A.

    be sure to use a new blade or at least that is what I did. Best to you! Setting was 1 pressure and no stablizer at all.
