Bermuda Tumblers

Wow, it has been a scorcher out there this past week.  The heat and humidity has sucked all the energy out of me, not that I had a lot to begin with. 

Lately, I have been liking the Nautical theme of cards.  My sister-in-law came over last weekend and we made a couple of different cards she found on the internet. 

This weekend I thought I would try to make some Nautical tumblers.  I used my Cricut to cut out all the images.  for the font I used the Lyrical cartridge.  Then I used Life is a Beach for the center shape. 

I have never used a curved "frame" before.  This was simply done by placing a circle on the Cricut Craftroom "mat" and adding the letters around the circle.  Then I deleted the circle and was left with the writing.

All of the vinyl is from Expressions Vinyl.  I used the outdoor vinyl, since it is waterproof.  I have used the Oracal 651 on other tumbler crafts.  They have gone through the dishwasher with no problems.  Just on thing to remember, do not put the cover in the dishwasher, it will ruin the gasket.

I have had a lot of fun making these tumblers.  I can not wait to give them to friends and family.
