Vinyl: My First Love


Check out this post and other crafty inspiration over at our new blog!


Good Morning and welcome to our very first post for the My Paper Craze blog!  We hope you are just as excited as we are to start on this journey into crafting!  If you get a chance, please check out the “About” tabs at the top — we tried to make ourselves sound interesting!  Also, please be patient with us as we tweek the blog over the next few weeks until it reflects our passion for crafting.

This week will be short and sweet.  I wanted to introduce you to my first love… vinyl.  This was my first true adventure outside of paper and it was love at first cut.  I started making a few things here and there and the next thing I knew, it was a full blown obsession.  Vinyl is so versatile, way beyond anything I ever imagined.  Today I used vinyl to create some custom tumblers for some extra-special recipients (you know who you are, lol).  These were made using the premium vinyl offered by Silhouette America and clear plastic tumblers.  As you can see, I packaged them up with advertising for our new blog ❤

I won’t bore you with the ins and outs, vinyl is very easy for first time users.  Above Rubies Studios offers a YouTube video that describes the process from start to finish.  You can check it out here:

So take time to look over the tumblers.  For my lucky recipients, I hope you enjoy them.  Feel free to check back in to see what we are doing with the place.  We’ll have a new post for you every Tuesday, hopefully to showcase our weekly projects and inspire some creativity within you!  Thanks for checking us out and we look forward to next week’s journey!
