There are 50 different Cricut heads on the Cricut Decals cartridge - many are doing sports, dressed up in hats and one even has a moustache. They are super cute!
I cut out Melanie's name using the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge that is also preloaded on the new Cricut Anniversary Expression 2. Her name was cut at 1-1/2". I love this swirly font! This cartridge comes with three fonts - this swirly one, the plain one that make up the rest of the letters and finally, one enclosed in a circle.
Next, I made one for my mom! Using the Cricut Decals cartridge, I cut two dogs and a cat at 2". Her name was cut with the Cricut American Alphabet cartridge at 2".
1) Once you have the layered image on the transfer tape, go slow! It's easy to tear the fine pieces. Use the wooden stick and also a paper piercer to be sure you get out all the bitty pieces.
2) Bigger solid pieces lay down better than skinny pieces. I had no problem with the Cricut head and the cat and dog decals because they were so solid.
3) For the names on top, I would do a couple of letters at a time, then shift the glass and do the next few letters. This worked well in getting them lined up nicely.
4) The new Cricut Anniversary Expression 2 puts letters close together, as you can see above on the tumblers. I would lay out the first couple-three letters and then shift and put down the next letters approximately the same distance as the first few.
5) The new Cricut Anniversary Expression 2 has a setting for vinyl, making it so easy to use!
6) Finally, these are handwash only so I am hoping the vinyl won't have any trouble.
