Kristi & I used to sell vinyl lettering.  It’s how we got into the whole blogging business.  We used to have  a passion for it and the following story is why.  Although we don’t sell anymore and refer everyone to our friend, Marni, we can occasionally get suckered into it by sweet friends…or neighbors who live down the street and know you actually do have a spare couple hours if they’re not in a huge hurry (; I do love how this vinyl framed art turned out, it’s the popular Winnie the Pooh quote but I changed things up a little to make it match my friend’s home decor a little more.  Read on for how and why this quote means so much to my pal.

This was a time consuming project in the fact that it I had to apply each section of vinyl separately, but it wasn’t a hard process.  I used my LXi vinyl lettering program to create the look I wanted.  From there it was a matter of cutting the black quotes in three sections since my cutter is only 24″…which made it a little harder to apply the vinyl as I was matching up random chunks of quotes at a time.  I did the “If ever – trust” in one batch, the “You – think” in a second and “But – you” in a third and finally, all the turquoise lettering in a fourth batch. But I used my level and eye-balled it as best as I could.  I think it turned out pretty neat for an inexpensive frame that my friend only bought on clearance just for the large frame.  It would’ve also made a great chalkboard, felt board or bulletin board.

To make your own, use the following fonts:

Mary Jane for “If,” “when we’re not together,” etc.

Nixie One for “ever there is a tomorrow” etc.

Xiomara for all the cursive words.

Arial for the brackets {} and <<<<<<<<<<<

Adhesive Nr. Seven is the top banner is, letter G *I had to alter it so it was solid then added the lettering inside.

Bergamot Ornaments is the bottom banner, letter b.

So the back story is my friend’s niece passed away suddenly and this was her niece’s favorite quote.  The last part made me tear up as I was telling the story to my sis… “But the most important this is even if we’re apart…I’ll always be with you.”  My friend will now display this in her home so her kids can remember their cousin who was taken too soon.

So what do you think?  Will you ever pass a good looking frame with an ugly print again?  Just get your hands on some vinyl and the possibilities are endless (:
