Ceramic Tiles

This is just one of the current crafty loves that I have right now...making custom vinyled tiles.  I love creating the layout, picking out the colors of vinyl and tiles and seeing the finished product!  I have made so many of these for gifts which turned into a small business for me as the word spread about them.  For the most part I create all of the vinyl designs that I put onto the tiles in my Sure Cuts A Lot 2 software which is no longer available.  I then cut them out on my Cricut Expression, which I have had for three years now.  It is crazy to think how long I have been cutting up paper and vinyl :)
Here are some pictures of the tiles I have made:

The Live Laugh Love tile I designed the words but the corner designs were from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.  I used brown and tan vinyl.

This is MY tile :)  It was one of the first I made and the pictures of my two older boys are very outdated, but I really wanted to share what an 18" tile looks like all made up.  Once again, the corners are from the Storybook Cricut cartridge and the rest I designed myself using brown and burgundy vinyl.  You definitely need a large space for a tile this size!

The following two tiles are ones that were made on 12" tiles and are the first style of name tile that I started making.


This last tile is one that I feel has a wonderful message.  The colors of vinyl in this one are gold, brown and burgundy.

It seems like every time I turn around I see more saying and designs that I want to put on tiles, so I will be sharing more of these in the future!  If you were wondering where I get my vinyl, I buy most of it from H&H Sign Supply.  They have wonderful prices on larger amount of vinyl.  I wait to order until I need quite a bit since the shipping is on the high end.

Thanks for stopping by!
