Spot the mistake.......

So I decided to try my hand at doing a subway art type of thing using vinyl and my Cricut Explore. I've never cut vinyl before, I must admit I am not a fan of wall quotes and I know where the bathroom is without having to put a label on the door....but I did fancy doing something, so I went to a Home Sense store and found a nice frame. I decided to do a subway art for my daughter Alex and her boyfriend Declan, putting down some of the places they have visited together. As I was doing it, they were skiing in France, but I didn't have a clue where, and thought I might seem like an overprotective sort of mum if I sent her a text saying 'where exactly are you, can you spell it for me please......' So the skiing trip didn't make it onto the wall............



I had to Google the process, but there were loads of YouTube videos and after watching a couple it was really easy to do, I may be a bit hooked and will have to revise my thinking on labelling doors and walls, it was fun! Anyway, here is the end result. Ta Da! Now see if you can spot the mistake............


Okay, I know, I cut another C and put it right! See you tomorrow x

  1. It took me a few minutes to find it, funny how our brain sees something and thinks it is right - Francisco will look better with a 'c' but the whole hanging looks beautiful, despite it! Anne x

  2. Fabulous hanging, the lucky couple will love it. I wonder if they would have spotted the San Fran mistake? Looking at the hanging as a whole I didn't see it but because I knew there was something wrong I looked more carefully, still took a couple of minutes to spot it though! Pat x

  4. I did spot it, but I seem to have a gift for spotting misspelled words. I wouldn't have mentioned it, though! LOL. Your sign is really cool, and I'm sure it will be very much appreciated. I haven't tried vinyl yet either, but you and the Explore are making me feel I should, now. Thank you

  9. I love spelling, so it jumped right out at me. They will love their framed art. Good job Enfys. The only things I've ever done with vinyl are coffee cups.

  12. It looks great! I made quite a few of this style cutting board/trivets for Christmas gifts this past year. Don't know if you have anything there like them, but I got them at the Dollar Tree and put the vinyl on the back side. You can see some of the ones I did on my blog at this post. I hope this link comes through http://www.kristiekreates.blogspot.com/2014/10/cutting-boardstrivets.html

  14. I lost my heart in San Fransisco ... opps, I mean ... San Francisco! Gotta love a booboo every now and then. Once you get past the "Whoops" moment, there is always a good chuckle. You did an amazing job on your very first attempt at subway art. This will be a very special gift for Alex and her boyfriend ... one that will bring back many wonderful memories for them.
