Disney Pixar Blog Hop - DAY TWO!

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!
Did you like the projects from yesterday?  If you missed any of them you can click HERE to find links to all of them.

Today I want to share a project that is made with adhesive backed fabric

I created a Mickey Mouse decal for my laptop

I cut all of the layers out of the solid color sheets of adhesive backed fabric and then layered them just like you would cardstock.  The best part is that if I stuck something down and it did not look straight I could just peel it back and reposition it.  To me, adhesive backed fabric feels more like working with a repositionable sticker than traditional vinyl.  Traditional vinyls I have used would have not peeled off as clean and the pieces would have twisted and warped if you tried to peel them back and place them again.

Oh, and since you don't use transfer tape with adhesive backed fabric there is one less product to buy.  Also, with traditional vinyl you need to weed away the vinyl around the image you cut . . . but not with adhesive backed fabric.  This actually gives you more product to cut with since you are not weeding anything away.  You can still use that negative space that is left over to make smaller cuts for other projects.

I also made a Mickey and Minnie Mouse with a mouse hole that 
I put in my hallway just outside my craft room.

Here is a closer picture

  8. Yyour little Mouse hole is adorable. This product seems similar to Colorforms of days gone by. Thank you for sharing your talent again.

  9. Great projects Shawn -- just love them all! What a cut idea to make the mouse hole. BTW I use mycutsearch all the time -- it has been invaluable - I definitely recommend it to all my crafty friends :) TFS!


  10. I love the mouse hole to cute!!!

  11. Your Mickey looks fantastic! I will certainly check out the site. I did one of our bathrooms in Mickey and Minnie, and the vinyl I used was tough to work with when make larger sized wall decor because of not being repositionable. Thanks for sharing the site!

  12. Love your laptop decal! And the mouse hole is too cute! Thanks again for the invite :)

  13. Hi Shawn! That's a great idea to use Square 1 to decorate your laptop. I always worry whether I'll change my mind, or even want to un-decorate if I have to take the laptop to a more formal business setting. This stuff would do the trick!! And the mouse hole -- TOOOO cute!! Love it!

  15. So tempted to try Square 1, I think it'd work well with my Cameo's print and cut feature. The mouse hole is a very cute idea. TFS!

  16. Your projects today are so fun! Mickey is great, but I really like the mouse hole with Mickey and Minnie. What a fun idea!

  17. That Square 1 looks like relly neat stuff. I love the decal idea. The mousehole is precious.

  18. So so funny ...wonder who will notice when the visit. Fun

  19. I'm gonna have to steal the mouse hole idea- too cute!

  20. I love the idea of Square One. I've never done vinyl. this looks easier to use and it cuts okay with the cricut?

  21. OMGoodness Shawn!! What a cute and clever idea for the mouse hole on the wall! I'm so going to steal that!!

  22. Shawn, I love your projects! And I LOVE My Cut Search...I use it all the time. There were 3 handbook pages that had a laptop on them. Thanks for the chance to win...I have always wanted one of those Scrap-n-Easels!

  23. Love your laptop Mickey! He is so cute.

  24. Love your laptop and mouse hole!!! I am confused about Square 1 sizes. Some say 12' (as in 12 feet) and others say 12" (as in 12 inches). Just curious if I am reading it correctly!

    Love this hop!!! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!!

  25. Well, Day 1 blog hop was just too much fun. Now we get to do it again!!! ;-)
