Expressions Vinyl GIVEAWAY Week - Featuring a Soccer-Themed Vinyl Waterbottle

Pin It

I am so excited to announce that this week on Binge Crafter I will be giving away a $25 gift card to Expressions Vinyl! As I've mentioned in a couple of previous posts, I was so excited to find Expresions Vinyl (recommended on the Cricut message board) because their vinyl is sooo reasonably priced compared to buying Cricut Vinyl in the major craft stores, PLUS it comes in so many colors and varieties. Instead of paying almost $10 for black or white vinyl, at Expressions Vinyl I was able to buy any color I wanted for only $1.89 a sheet!  (12"x24")   Naturally I bought every color and I'm getting a head start making all sorts of projects for Christmas gifts.

So this week to celebrate, I will be showcasing some of my newest vinyl projects. Tune in each day for a chance to win!  Can't wait for the giveaway?  Expressions Vinyl runs some great specials.  Check out their facebook page and sign up for their special offers email.



My first project is a waterbottle for my niece.  My niece is going to be the next Hope Solo, so I made her this soccer themed waterbottle.  I used the Cricut and Cricut Craft Room to make the letters, polka dots, and soccer balls.  The circles were made using Cricut Craft Room Basics, and the letters and soccer balls using the 3 Birds- Life's a Party cartridge.  I don't actually own the last one, it was a free preview a couple of weeks ago.  Each week on Thursday there is a different FREE cartridge available in Cricut Craft Room, as well as Cricut Craft Room basics.  (There are even two on there of Mitt Romney and Barack Obama in case you want to make some election themed cards or bulletin boards for school.)  By the way, the waterbottle was purchased from Dollar Tree.  Since the Cricut cartridges I used were free, the only additional cost I had was the cost of the vinyl, which as I've said is super cheap when you buy it through Expressions Vinyl.

How do you enter? Use the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck! The winner will be announced next Monday, September 24.

  6. I wonder about buying lip balm in just a plain white tube & putting images/writing on them. Probably would be hard to work with something that size & shape. If it worked though it would be good in gift bags for kids b-days & lots of other things. I have to say, Ang, you really inspire me to be creative. You are honestly SO good at all these crafting ideas!!

  14. I love the water bottle. I haven't worked with vinyl yet because I'm still a little afraid of my machine. Still on the bottom of the learning curve. How do you do the soccer balls? Are they layered?

  17. I just bought Silhouette Cameo and am totally in awe of the creativity I see here and on other pages. I hven't even tried vinyl...still stuck with the learning curve of the software.

    Really great idea for personalizing! How are the soccer balls done?

  23. I have never done anything with vinyl but do so want to give it a try. Would love to win this GC so I can get started. I love the idea of dressing up waterbottles. They could be personalized for any activity. Thank you for this opportunity.

  24. I would love to win this because I am wanting to start playing with vinyl. I want to make some things to put on my car. Thanks for the chance.

  25. I LOVE using vinyl and sharing little "how to" projects with my scrapping friends. It's always fun to have them step-away from making layouts when we crop together every once in a while to play with vinyl instead. I really think they would all enjoy making these water bottles. Thanks for the inspiration!
