I am a huge fan of searching youtube for "how to" videos!
I had been intrigued by the vinyl idea. My sister had just painted her room this fantastic royal blue color and we were hoping to do some wall art but could not find any white vinyl. I ended up getting some black and decorated my baby bug, I must say it turned out quite cute. Will post pictures later!
I also purchased the Home Decor cart from Michael's when they had them on sale this past week. I am looking forward to playing around with this. I have also found that the Cricut consumables are much cheaper at Walmart which is good to keep in the back of my head.
