Simple Vinyl Door & Wall Cuts

My daughter liked the little sign I made for her using the Cricut Markers (see it here), but she wanted more for the door so I decided to cut some simple things using basic black Cricut Vinyl that I had leftover from some other projects.
I cut these letters using Hello Kitty Font (still on of my favorites) and the butterfly is from Lyrical Letters. I always forget to use a kiss cut on my vinyl and I had to peel the backing off of these to hang them up on her door. To do a KISS CUT and only cut the vinyl the package says to set blade depth to 6 and pressure to 2. This has always worked for me, but I have also heard  people who use a blade depth 4, pressure 3, speed 3 and get the same results. If your forget it isn't so bad you just have to peel the back layer away.

My daughter has decided she likes this better than the other sign so it has moved inside the room and the door lettering is all alone. I am guessing sometime next week she will ask for something else (or something purple) so stay tuned.

It is a very busy weekend for us, with very little time for crafting. I will wrap up a great week of directing the school play and celebrating the success of the show. Sunday my daughter has a dance recital and the whole family is going to be on hand, plus swim lessons tomorrow and a wedding shower stop-in. I am super tired from the week, but I know being surrounded by family and all these fun events is going to be great!


  1. Wow, LB. Busy week. Glad to see you are finding a bit of time to play though. Love the sign on the door. I am sure your daughter loves it too.
