  • Cricut machine

    UMC 2 (Small).jpg I am restoring a couple of signs that were mounted on the front of our church. Water got behind them and completely rotted the plywood backer and parts of the frames that I had to recreate. The scroll saw was great for parts of the upper pieces. I was trying to figure out haw to redo the lettering and decided to use a PVC sign board instead of plywood and stencil the text. Our library has a Cricut machine so I used it to cut Vinyl letters instead. What a great machine. The letters are about 2" tall . Above it you can see the other text ready to be applied to the other sign. The signs will be behind glass. I will also put small spacers behind the signs so that moisture does not get trapped and start the rotting process again. UMC 1 (Small).jpgUMC 1 done (Small).jpg

    Looks amazing! Can’t wait to see the final results! I’ve seen those machines advertised, but never saw one in action. Impressive!

        I have some crafter friends who started a business about 6 years ago with glass jars and words cut from the cricut machine and asked “If I made these would you buy from me” and the business Here’s your deSign was born. These girls are killing it!

          My neighbor bought a 60's vintage BSA motorcycle that he is restoring. The graphic on the tank was just barely visible so I took a picture of it and redrew the graphic and have cut a stencil on the Cricut for him so I am curious how that will work out. The stencil will be on the tank and a friend will air brush it with Gold. It is a good thing that the library access to it is free or I would own one of these machines. I have also cut removable clear contact paper stencil 5 9 revision 5.jpg and made a stencil. The stencil 15535631617157011559922939138376 (Small).jpg is only 3-1/2 inches wide.

            Unfortunately the finials on the sign frames were in good shape or I would have had to turn some new ones.

                It's turning out great Rolf and the use of the Vinyl should help with the sign retaining its "glory" for a while. I wouldn't be without my electronic cutters, I have used them for so many things over the years, including making a ton of team shirts for my kids sports teams and other team paraphernalia.

                    I never thought of the circuit machine. That's an ingenious way to tackle that project.

                      For those of you that have a Cricut and need to use transfer paper to pick up and move letters or stencils, I tried using Cricut's own transfer paper and it was way too sticky. I tried the Clear Contact brand removable shelf paper that I use under all of my patterns and it works perfectly.
