Stacey at fun to craft

Hello Le Chateau des Fleurs Readers!
Thank you SO much to Frenchy for having me over here today. It is always fun to take over a blog!! Here are the detes about me:
That is me, Stacey.I am the crafter over at Fun to Craft.
I blog to share tutorials, crafts, sewing projects, recipes,
frugal finds or tips, and host giveaways.

I have two crazy kiddos and a darling hubby who just graduated from law school and is in the throes of studying for the bar!! We have been on a thrifty budget so I try to make creative things that don't break the bank. I craft as my creative outlet because I think it helps keep me sane! I definitely dig home decor, sewing, crocheting, hand embroidery, spray painting, hot gluing and anything else I have to do to make that project just right.

Any of you who know about my blog know that I love me a Cricut project. Plus, add in some vinyl and I am in heaven! I showed you here how to add vinyl to your laptop. I also showed you how to create a fun easy gift idea here. I also gave some 'how to' tips on vinyl and cricut use here and here.

So here is another fun way to use vinyl: on tiles. These tiles can be purchased just at your home improvement store for way cheap. Then I wash them off really well so my vinyl will adhere to them better. I also heat them up in the oven for a few minutes just around 200 degrees. I have just found that this helps the vinyl stick to the tile and stay well.

Use some transfer tape or other adhesive product to transfer your design onto the tile. Trust me! It is SO much easier than eye balling it!
You can display it in a plate holder or easel. Easy and fun!!
I have a LOT of fun over at Fun to Craft and would love for you to join me! I have a 'Look at me, I am SO Crafty!' Link Party every Friday.
I love making new blogging friends and love to find new inspiring blogs to check out too. So come by, leave me a comment and I will come check out your blog too!!

Thanks again to Frenchy for having me over here today. She is too cute and since I am a HUGE lover of all things France....I just love her blog! I actually did a study abroad in France in college and love France even more now. So I am super glad that Frenchy shows us how a French girl does things!!

**There will be a giveaway this week too so come by and check it out!!
