I Love Vinyl!!!

I love Vinyl... One of the latest projects (I have many) are these books! I got the idea from my friend Amber Hardle, who saw it on Studio Five I couldn't find the craft on the site where they actually did the books, but it is on there! Studio Five is a local program in Utah where they talk about everything from scrapbooking, to makeup, to health issues, and current events. I really enjoyed the show when I lived in Utah.
Anywho... I digressed. I will show you what I made, it was so easy and anyone can duplicate these. Even if you do not have a vinyl cutter, use word and print it out in the format you want and paint it on. It takes more time but is definately worth it. The end result is just too cute!

First I got three old books that were dusty and probably hadn't been read, well ever... haha and I just spraypainted them black, and silver. Again that same can of Rustoleum. I sprayed them standing up in a teepee style so as to get all the binding and not have to wait for one side to dry, before painting the other.
After they thoroughly dried I just peeled and stuck the vinyl on.

You can come up with any crazy, ridiculous, spooky titles that you want. I am going to make some for christmas time as well. I will be making a big one that will be the Naughty/ Nice List... Watch for that one.

This is a really fast sign I made. Just printed it off on the vinyl cutter, painted a board black and stuck the vinyl on... 1...2...3... EASY! It says "RADIATION" Sorry bad picture!

The reason I made the Author of "Secret Recipes" Velma Vandam is that I love the movie The New Misadventures of Icabod Crane I have watched this movie almost every Halloween since I was born. It is a tradition for me and I just love it! Velma Vandam is the Witch who turns herself into the Headless Horseman so she can rob the townspeople of their gold. It is totally cheesy, but I LOVE it! Hence, why she is the author of my book and the resident witch in my basement!

I love this!!! I wish I had a vinyl cutter. I'm not sure I have the patience to paint something like the books. Great idea though.
