August 9th, 2018 • Contributor: Beth Kingston from Kingston Crafts

Hey everybody – it’s Beth from Kingston Crafts! Have you heard about the new Removable Premium Vinyl from Cricut? It has so many fun uses, including creating your own stencils! It works so well for projects like this because it removes cleanly without leaving any residue behind.

I love collage walls and making your own wall art is a way to fix those awkward gaps you sometimes end up with between frames. I’ve used iron-on to create custom wall art, and today I’m sharing a quick tutorial for making your own home décor using the Removable Premium Vinyl as a custom stencil. All it takes is a few steps and your favorite paint colors to create something special!


1: Cut Your Wood

Measure the space on your wall and cut a piece of wood to fit.

2: Paint Your Wood Base

Select one paint color and paint the wood – this will be the color your image will appear on the finished project. Let dry.

3: Design Your Image

Select a single layer image in Design Space and size to fit the wood. I used this Love image.

4: Cut Out Your Vinyl

Cut the image from Removable Premium Vinyl using any machine from the Cricut Explore family or the Maker. The beauty of this technique is that it does not matter what color vinyl you use, so this is a great way to use your scraps.

5: Weed Your Design

Weed the image then use the XL Scraper to apply the Transfer Tape and remove the image from the backing.

Removable Vinyl vs. Permanent Vinyl

Removable Vinyl vs. Permanent Vinyl for Your Projects

July 3rd, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Now that we have unveiled our new Cricut® Premium Vinyl™ – Permanent and Removable products, you may be wondering which kind you should use for your projects. Let's start exploring some of the possibilities with each!

Removable Vinyl

If you're new to crafting with vinyl, you may be wondering why you would even want to have the ability to remove it. After all, don't you want your results to be long-lasting?

In reality, there are quite a few situations where you don't want to use something permanent. Removable vinyl will adhere to your surface but easily peel away without leaving any residue.

One prime example is for decorating walls. Removable vinyl allows you to brighten up living spaces without having to repaint after you take it down. (Do note that it may not work as well on some oil-based paints as these can possibly break down adhesives.)

You can easily dress up a nursery or playroom with this adorable set of Alphabet Decals.

My toddler is head-over-heels in love with "mangos" so she would be ecstatic if I added some Flamingo Wall Art to her room.

As for myself, I have a fondness for vinyl sayings to go on my walls. This Whimsical Wedding Wall Decal definitely encapsulates how I feel about my husband.

Another possible use for removable vinyl is to make nail decals. If you're hopeless at painting (like me!) or just want to add some fun designs, try this!

Glitter hearts are an easy yet stylish way to get ready for Valentine's Day.

You can use this Support Ribbon Nail Art in October to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Combine gold vinyl with printable vinyl to create this Plaid Christmas Nail Art.

It's so fun to put removable vinyl pretty much anywhere that you want to dress up, but want to be able to easily remove it at any time or it doesn't need it to last a long time.

You can easily transform a plain bowl to match any party theme, like this Fiesta Chip & Salsa Bowl Set.

Decorate pumpkins for Halloween without all the mess and stress of carving them.

Removable vinyl is sturdy enough to use on foam board for your child's Science Fair Project.

Permanent Vinyl

On the other hand, there are definitely times where you want to make your design more long-lasting. Enter our new Premium Vinyl™ – Permanent to save the day!

Want to save your furniture from water damage? Coasters are a must!

My geeky heart has fallen in love with these Steampunk Coasters.

You can also go retro with these incredibly fun Floppy Disk Coasters.

Keep things simple and classy with these Metal Monogram Coasters.

After making some coasters, you'll have an excuse to create some new drinkware to pair with them. Whether you're using cups, mugs or water bottles, permanent vinyl will help your designs last longer and resist water and wear.

If you love all things ocean related, these Sea Kelp Glasses are perfect for you!

I am SO not a morning person, so I can definitely relate to this Stay Up Late Mug.

Think positive by creating this "The Gym is Calling" Water Bottle to take on your exercise sessions.

Cars can really take a beating from the elements outdoors, so make sure your vinyl is permanent to help your car decals be sturdier to account for this.

Show off your love for camping and the outdoors with this Car Camping Decal.

Cricut is located in Utah, so you can share our state pride with this I Heart Utah Decal.

You could easily put one of these I Don't Give a Flock decals on your car instead of a cup.
