Hello! It’s been a while, sorry….life, lol. But, I did finally make some time to play with some samples of inkjet printable adhesive vinyl. I won’t disclose from where I received this particular vinyl, mostly because the company is no longer in business and this vinyl wasn’t a very good product. I would suggest purchasing your material from a reputable source like Expressions Vinyl. There are others as well, but this isn’t a post for that topic.
I would also recommend purchasing the companion laminate that your supplier offers. We had some printable adhesive vinyl at our Terri Johnson Creates Licensed Instructors Retreat from Expressions Vinyl along with their laminate. I will be purchasing from them next time!
Enter the newest tool in my organizational arsenal:
The Bullet Journal (Luechtturm1917)
Now, I am new to journalling and wanted to become more aware of goals and logging important milestones in my business life and all the planner talk lately made me want to join in….the catch: I do better with my Google calendar. I need the pop-up reminders to keep me on track yet I wanted to WRITE down things and expand with a few lines of thoughts on events important to me. And doodle, and have cool pens, and make use of a gigantic collection of embellishments….oh so pretty washi tape!! The cover, while a gorgeous tangerine, is still———plain. I was originally going to choose a clever quote cut out of 651 until I remembered my stash of samples. And since I couldn’t decide on ONE color to adorn this cover, I decided to print a pattern! I chose two different fill patterns, both florally, but different for each item.
As you can see, in weeding, I lost some letters. I took some scrap white sticker paper and covered up the original registration marks and sent through the printer again for those four missing letters. Here is where I would go back and laminate before cutting. I found that the transfer tape pulled off some of the top layer on the monogram.
I still love how they turned out even though this was only my second time working with the printable vinyl.
I am still trying to get in the habit of opening that journal at least once a day *sigh*.
Thank you for following and if you have questions, please let me know!!
