I got some awesome stuff to try out for Expressions Vinyl's birthday celebration - and you could win some too!!
The festivities will include giveaways, games, coupons and the introduction of new products. The new products will include tumblers, canvas bags, t-shirts, glitter vinyl in both adhesive and heat transfer as well as a variety of new specialty film adhesive vinyls such as neon, reflective, metalized, colored etched glass and glow in the dark.
If I were you, I would follow them on Facebook so you don't miss anything!!
Want to see what I made with the goodies?? It's several different projects poured in to one big post, so hang with me....
First up, I dug right into the Glow-in-the-Dark Vinyl - - because how cool is that. It's pretty thick, so if you're using a cutting machine keep that in mind (with my Cameo I had to have my blade at a 7 and thickness at 33 and use double cut). I asked my 9 year old what we should make, and he said FLASHLIGHT!! (thank you, Night at the Museum...)
So the pictures aren't great - - I want to see you try to take pictures of a glow-in-the-dark flashlight - - it's tricky! I probably should have gotten out my tripod, but that sounded like a lot of work.... just know that it IS AWESOME! (left is normal, on the right is glowing in a dark room)
Then I tried out the new "Chrome" vinyl - - I'm in love! It looks just like stainless steel - - it feels kind of like foil. IT'S AWESOME! Once again, my camera can't capture the fabulousness. Trevor made us a cabinet for the trash can (eh, did you think I'd never tell you about how the kitchen is coming along - it's finally done! hope to post about it soon) - and he did such a great job that now people ask "where's the trash" - so I labeled it, in chrome to match the kitchen...
And now Expressions Vinyl offers tumblers - wahoo! I was loving the Chrome vinyl so much that I thought it'd look great on a Tumbler that the kids could make for Trevor for Father's Day - - again, looks much cooler in person....
The sample kit I received was worth $75-$100 - - - and guess what - you could win the same kit that I got - wahoo!! Just use Rafflecopter to enter the giveaway:
