  1. I just got my first order from Expressions Vinyl this week and am super excited to get into a few project with my new supplies!!! :O)

  2. I would love to make some bright happy cards and of course something with colorful vinyl. LOVE vinyl, so easy to use and play with.

    • PS I need to go to the thrift store and start looking for frames. That is so adorable how you took a not so nice pic and made it fabulous

      • Thanks Michelle! I have a growing collection of frames waiting to be upcycled, and seem to buy more each time I’m at Goodwill…it’s just a matter of finding things to put in them, haha!

    • Rhinestones are on my wishlist too, Kelly! But I am afraid once I try them, I will go rhinestone crazy and want to put them on everything, haha!

  3. So funny I found you today! I was just at Expressions Vinyl this morning and I noticed etched glass vinyl! I never heard of that before! I can;t wait to cover my doors side windows with it

  4. Didn’t know about Vinyl Expressions! Love it! Been looking for a variety pack of colored vinyl. Love the colors in the Easter pack, but I’m going for the rainbow colors! Thanks too, for the beautiful verse download!

  5. I love Expressions Vinyl!! I’ve been doing a lot of subway art lately, so I’d be stocking up on more outdoor vinyl!

  6. Wow, that trick for lining up your vinyl on the glass is genius. I now cannot WAIT to pick up a frame at Goodwill so I can try my hand at one. Stunning artwork, my dear. And so generous with the free cut file. It’s neat to hear about Expressions Vinyl, too! The product clearly shines in your creation. Well done!

  7. LOVE the design! Thank you so much for sharing! Before I even read your post, the John Rutter piece ran through my head when I saw the picture. Several of my choirs and choruses have performed that piece. It’s gorgeous.

    The item at the top of my crafting wish list would be a heat press.

  8. Hi Meredith,

    Your project is FABULOUS!!! That was one of my absolute favorite songs from Sunday School when I was a child. You are sooooo generous to share the SVG file with us!!! Thank you so much!!! To show my appreciation, I’ve pinned the project, tweeted about it and will share on my Peace, Love and Joyce Facebook page!

    I visited the Expressions Vinyl store and I would love to get a wide variety of the vinyl, especially the copper & gold leaf. The one thing I am going to buy right away is the “Vinyl is Money” e-Book. It would be great to sell some items to help support my addiction to Stampin’ Up! & Silhouette! Haha!

    Thanks for the chance to win the gift card.

    Peace, Love and Joy,

    • Thanks Jessica! I actually bought this frame with another project in mind but it ended up being too tall…but I’m so glad I had it on hand, it worked perfectly for this project!

  9. Im wanting to make a subway type art with dr. Seuss inspirational saying. I think the Easter pack vinyl would be perfect! First vinyl project too :p

  10. I absolutely love this picture! I have not ever used vinyl in my silhouette yet but seeing this pretty, I want to make one! Thank you so much for sharing this awesome idea and keep crafting because colors make the world a happy place!

    • Aw, thanks Paula! You must get started with vinyl…it is a whole new world of crafting possibilities, and so easy! And I agree, happy colors make anything better :-)

    • Thanks, Ciera! You know, it really wasn’t that time consuming…I don’t have a whole lot of patience, but I never really felt like I was running out of it for this project, haha. Especially if you use less colors, it could be done pretty quickly!

  11. I love you vinyl you made for spring. It is beautiful! Thank you for the download. I was wondering what size frame you used? I love the look of that. Please let me know.
    Thank you very much.

  12. Your design is absolutely lovely – I’m singing the song, too! I had a question about contact paper as the transfer medium. I made a decal for my car and just used the Cricut paper transfer. Because it’s not see through it made lining up hard so using clear tape sounds great! But won’t the contact paper itself stick to the object you’re trying to put the vinyl on?

    • Thanks, Debbie! Contact paper is only a little bit stickier than regular transfer tape, and it peels right off of glass with no problem. It helps to stick it to your jeans once or twice to “de-stickify” it a little bit, if you’re concerned about getting it off…but I didn’t do that for this project and it was fine. I’ve used it for many projects…including transferring to card stock, too! And it peeled off with no trouble at all.

      • Oh thank you for the tip to use contact paper when adding vinyl to cardstock! I started a whole project had it all planned in my head and half of the vinyl cut when I realized my transfer paper sticks to the cardatock and ruins it. I do have one question about your gorgeous project here, what did you use to make your background of the frame black? Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond, I adore your blog!

  13. Your project is absolutely gorgeous!!! Thank you so much for sharing the file.
    What did you put behind the glass? What is the “black” behind the vinyl?
    So glad I found you this evening—saw your project on Pinterest and had to see how you made it! :)

    • Thanks so much, Donna! I just put two pieces of black card stock behind the glass…originally I was thinking of just leaving it with no backing, but it was really difficult to photograph…so I tried putting the black paper behind it and really liked how it looked so I kept it that way! Glad you stopped by :-)

  14. This is beautiful! I love this project (it’s a favorite childhood hymn of mine!) and want to try to make it for my twin girls’ bird-themed nursery before they arrive this fall. I am not familiar with studio software and use a mac. Is it possible to get the template in a PDF format? Following you on Pinterest for more ideas! Thanks!

    • Hi Louisa, thanks for your sweet words! I adore this hymn, too. I made it by cutting the lettering out of vinyl with my Silhouette cutting machine, and the file is for Silhouette Studio (to be used only with a Silhouette Cameo or Portrait), so unfortunately it can’t be used with any other program. You could try creating your own version to print and frame, if you’d like! Just pick some pretty fonts – PicMonkey.com might be a good site to try. Congratulations on your little girls – I’m sure their nursery will be lovely!

  15. I’m new at this…. :). When I try and cut the small words “each” I get messed up letters or what I think are called “tags”. Then the upgrade to 4 keeps freezing. Any suggests for cutting the smaller fonts?

  16. Hi Meredith,
    I was just wondering if you know of a way to convert this STUDIO file to a SVG? I’m in love with this but have a Cricut :( In hindsight I wish I’d gotten a Silhouette instead but I was new to it all & took a friends advice.
