Hello my laser loving and vinyl loving friends! I created this laser cut vinyl storage for all of the people looking for a storage solution that is not a bag holder.
What I love about this storage solution is that it has a low profile, sitting only about 3" off the wall! It is 18" tall and 5" wide with the holes being about 1.75". It can hold 10 vinyl rolls that are anywhere from 6" to 24+" wide.
Make multiple and hang together to make a seamless design. (I made two and have room for more!)

Now that you have the file, let's get started!
What you need for this project:
Once you have it assembled, on to painting it! I chose a boring but functional grey! Next, I attached it (well had my husband attach it) to the wall with the screws.
And voilà..... time to add your unorganized vinyl and show off your creation!
What color did you paint yours? Comment below, I want to know!
If you are reading this you want to know the secrets on creating a 1 layer/1 color design to a multiple layer/color design in Cricut design Space... shhh... don't tell anyone. Just Kidding scream it from the mountain tops, this will change your Cricut game!
First you need a design. For this example I use my FREE love heart design you can find here!
And just like you have created a multi-colored design from a plain one color, one layered design! Way to go!

The things you need for this project are:
One you have all you materials together you will want to upload the sports ball(s), of your choice, into your cutting software. Whether it be silhouette studio, Cricut design space, or some other program. You will want to size the outer part of the circle right below 2". Mine were right at about 1.8". Next, you will want to cut, weed, and apply transfer tape.
Then, you will want to transfer the vinyl to your rounds. Once carefully transferred, I used a small utility knife to cut the vinyl where the hole is.
And last but not least you will want to attach the keychain hardware! Now wasn't that just easy peasy!
To add a bit more to your keychain, add a name, number, monogram, or more!

If you are reading this you are here to find out how to start sublimating for a reasonable price, right?
Below I will list (with affiliate links*) all that you need to get started sublimating, right away! All for about $500, now doesn't that sound fabulous?!
*Affiliate links won't cost you any more, it will just allow me a small commission for the referral!
Okay so now you have the printer, ink, & paper... you will now need heat!
A heat press is a must when sublimating. It will allow your print to have even pressure and print, which is very important to get a great transfer.
There are multiple Press options. I will list just two for you. You can find a decent Press for anywhere between $100-200. (Great thing is they can be used for vinyl too and the occasional ironing of clothes, lol)
Already have a heat press for HTV? There is no reason to get a new one, just so long it heats up and has pressure you are good to go!
Last but not least you will need blanks. When looking for blanks make sure they are 100% polyester or polyester coated items. You can find an array of items that can be sublimated! Some great places to purchase blanks are Coastal Business Supply, Conde, and JDS.
Just to name a few:
I hope this helps you get started with sublimation on a budget... any questions or comments, leave them below.

So, I have been struggling with a good way to store my acrylic paints. I feel like they have always been a mess and extremely hard to find the colors I have. As you can see below, I have bought the same colors multiple times, not even meaning to.
So first I began by creating the file, if you will be just using my FREE file you can skip this part.
After all of my pieces were cut.
Whooo... you made it to the end! Now all that is left is to put your paint in and admire your work! Make one, two, or twenty!
'G' this is such a fun letter for lettering. So many ways to letter it! I probably could have kept going, but I ran out of space!
What is your favorite letter? I think mine be G, K, R, and S and maybe A. Those are all so fun to letter!
If you like my style you might light my fonts.... check them out though the button!
This week's letter for creative ways to letter is F! This one is very similar to the letter E but so much more 'F'un!
Grab your pencil and paper and start practicing! When you do us the hashtag #creativewaystoletter on instagram.
Do you love my style, I SELL FONTS too!
E, this one way fun! I feel like there are so many ways to letter E. Grab your pen and paper and/or your ipad and apple pencil and start writing! I would love to see what you do with these lettering ideas, so use #creativewaystoletter on instagram!
If you like my style check out my fonts!
D, now this letter is somewhat fun! Lowercase and uppercase both are a bit different which makes it fun to make many different styles!
Do you ever just get stuck when you are lettering something and go "How can I write the letter D?" Well I have begun this series to help you get out of your creative block when lettering!
Grab a pen and paper or an ipad and ipad pencil and begin lettering!
Do you like my style, if so I create fonts too! Check them out!
Do you ever sit and look at the cup you are about to make and go "What size decal do I need to cut?" I know I have. So, I have made this little cheat sheet guide that may help answer that questions for you.
With cups (unlike the shirts) the height matters the most. You will not want to go larger or else it may go off the bottom or top!
However, the width can vary. You may want to wrap it around the cup! If you want to do this and do not have a fabric tape measurer, grab a piece of paper, wrap it around the cup, mark or cut it (the paper that is), then use a regular ruler to measure the paper to get circumference around the cup!
Out of all of these the wine glasses are the most tricky. You will want to make sure the design is fairly small. The curves will make it quite difficult to lay flat but the smaller it is the easier it will be.
I can't wait to see all the cups you create using this guide, tag me on instagram @kitaleigh.made or hashtag #kitaleigh, so I can see!
*note: This is only a guide, some cups and designs may need different sizing. measure twice, cut once. :)
