Digis and Vinyl?!

Yes.....absolutely! :0)
Hi, everyone! This is something different from me today.....something I had been planning to do for......ohhhhhhh.....at least three years, but never did "get around to it"! Lol! It wasn't until my good friend, Cely, you may know her as Carolina Girl of Creating in Carolina, showed me the awesome cake carrier she decorated that I kicked myself into gear to "take care of 'da bizzzz-ness!!". Hahaha!
Anyhow, Cely is currently a Guest Designer for Bugaboo Stamps.....and you all know how much I LOVE Bugaboo, right?! Well........she decorated her cake carrier using one of Jodie's images (make sure you check it out, it's incredibly adorable, and may even have you wanting to buy stock in vinyl......you'll want to decorate everything in your home after you see it!!). After I saw it, I emptied all the "cookies" out of my dogs "cookie" jar, and busted out a scrap piece of my vinyl (I actually had to dust it off......seriously!). I knew what I wanted to do, so I set to it........I set up my Cricut, and I opened up SCAL on my iMac.......
After doing an image "Trace" in SCAL, and making some sizing and a few changes to the traced image, here's what my final vinyl looks like:
(Click Image to Enlarge)
I put this adorable Rottweiler Puppy - Pile of Bones Image on both sides of the jar. Isn't it cute?! (I had to add the white paper inside the jar so you could see the image best). I'm really excited about how it turned out. My dogs could really care less, but it looks good on the counter, and even the hubby had a chuckle over it's "darling-ness"! lol!
The Bugaboo Catch the Bug Blog Challenge is to create a "Clean and Simple" project this week, so I am entering him into the challenge! 

Note: Due to copyright, I am not able to share this svg file with you, but if you have a cutting program, please consider purchasing the image, or others, from Bugaboo Stamps to create your own file! :0)
