Hello crafty friends! Welcome to Day One of Cicly's Home Decor and More Blog Hop! If you came from the über talented Esther's blog, then you are on the right track. If you just happened to be visiting today, then you'll want to start at Cicly's blog so you don't miss out on all of the goodies:-)
My project for today is Disney Vinyl Bath Decor! Other than the Mickey shower curtain, my boys bathroom seemed void of decor. One of the most fabulous things you can accomplish by utilizing Cricut Craft Room with the Imagine is printing multiple colored layers as one. There are a few little tricks involved, but it makes vinyl projects so much nicer and worth the extra effort. I used the Mickey Font cartridge to color and layer my images. In order to color the Mickey and Donald, I used the RGB codes that Samantha from Scrapmaster's Paradise put together. You need to make sure the "do not weld" is marked as well as hiding the contour cuts from the main layer. The trick is making sure the blackout layer is on a different "mat" and that it is the first layer your Imagine cuts. As soon as it's done cutting (I suggest setting the speed to 2) the blackout layer, you stop your machine. If you don't, it will continue cutting out the rest of the layers. I'll be posting a video on my blog to explain in more detail how I accomplished this.
