Car Decals

Here's another great idea for window decals.  These are just a couple that I had special requests for.  The first one went on the back window of a Mustang, and says, "Momma's Pony".  It also has the Mustang icon above the wording. 
This second one is on the back window of an old El Camino.  It says, "Get Trucked" and includes the Chevy "bowtie".  I used SCAL2 and my Cricut to cut them both.  I've also done a few smaller sized decals like this stick family.  I put it on my sister's car back in December.  It was so cold I couldn't feel my fingers, but it stayed put!  Notice the pregnant mom...only 3 weeks until she'll need an updated version.

Toy Story 3D

So, my daughter celebrated her 17th birthday on June 18th.  What better way than to go to the midnight opening show of Toy Story 3D?  I offered to make her and her friends some shirts to wear, and they chose to have the alien from the movies on them (he's sooo cute).  Anyway, while I used my Cricut to do the cutting, the Toy Story cartridge hasn't been released to the public yet so I had to find my own picture and convert it to a file I could cut using SCAL.  I am loving the updates to SCAL2 that allows me to break apart pics that I have traced.  I was able to separate each part according to what color we wanted and then simply piece them back together when ironing the vinyl on. 

When the aliens were finished, the girls decided they wanted their names on their shirts as well.  Back to the web I went in search of a font that looked like childrens' builing blocks (it was the girls' idea).  After some tweaking, I was able to stack them and apply them to the shirts as well.  One more quick pic before I go (the morning after)...sorry Lex!
