global vinyl

Hey there everyone,
I am officially stealing space on my sister's blog today -- she actually let's me do this once in a while.  I know that she is out Christmas shopping today (i talked to her son on the phone), so I thought it would be a great time to share something with you.

Did you know that CutYourWay vinyl has gone completely global????

That is right!! It's made it's way all the way across oceans to the Caribbean, the Domincan Republic, the Bahamas, Flordia and, most recently, all the way to Hawaii.

I have been priviledged enough to create with the CutYourWay vinyl for the past 4 years, and have added it to many of the instructing kits that I have designed.  I recently put vinyl into the hands of 100 Crop and Cruise scrappers in Hawaii in November.  Yes........many lucky scrapbookers across Canada, the United States and the world are getting their hands on CutYourWay vinyl designs. 

It's time you do too!!!

Here are a few of the recent layouts that I used vinyl on when teaching in Hawaii this past November:

And here's some cute little coasters created from clear acrylic, black vinyl designs & some craft paint.....Hawaiian-style:

So, these are just a few ways that you can use this fabulous product from CutYourWay.  Help me "welcome" Laura Lee to the scrapbooking industry as she starts this new adventure.

Come back soon to see her Christmas designs......yummy!!!!  And I bet there'll be some original designs up her sleeve real soon.

a huge fan,

Aloha Hawaii ...

Welcome to Cut Your Way !!

To those of you who are new to this blog, welcome here.  If you were in Hawaii with Crop and Cruise (and my sister Jill) you likely have received some of my vinyl... I truely hope you liked it!   I am in the midst of updating this blog with a BUNDLE of new designs, in some fantastic colors.  If you like what you see, and would like to order something, please drop me an email at

To those of you who have been to this blog before, and are thinking "wow, she IS still alive" - I would like to say Thanks for coming back!  I am hoping to boost this business to the next level, which includes some amazing new designs in some very exciting colors.  My vinyl designs are created specifically with the scrapbookers and crafters in mind - however there isn't much that I WON'T put vinyl on.  With that in mind, I will be updating this blog very soon with new layouts, etc using vinyl.  If you are wanting to order, or have something specific you would like, please drop me an email at
(or if you are interested in Purebred Registered Black Angus bulls and heifers for sale!!).

To all you in Hawaii - I hope you are having a great time!!

**smiles to Jill and Mom!!

Take Care,
Laura Lee

...You put vinyl on it!!!

Question: What do you do when you are tired of your bathroom "look", but aren't ready for a total make-over?
Answer: You put VINYL on it!

... So that's what I did! Just like I did in my kitchen this past summer, I "jazzed" up my bathroom with a bit of fun vinyl. I choose the olive color to compliment my "lovely" backsplash, and added black as well. I really like the finished product, and I like my bathroom again too (added bonus). It was so easy to put on, and I've washed that part of the wall a few times already, and they are sticking well. Now, when I brush my teeth, I can't help but SMILE!!

You gotta love vinyl!

This is a picture of the barn that I "pimped out" for Tanner this fall. He LOVED the John Deere on it!
This was another "Tanner project". For Grade 4 Science they had to make Structures. Tanner, of course, chose the Paterson grain elevator in Crystal City (my future farmer!). So, together we designed the base of the elevator, and added bins, etc. I suggested we should put the Paterson logo on the elevator, and Tanner said "Mom, can we do it in vinyl?" To which I replied "Yes!". I think it turned out pretty cool... and Tanner got a great mark for his efforts!

(Take note of the tiny lettering on the trucks; Wawanesa Belmont Transfer and TAKLE Farms - Tanner Adam Kevin Laura Lee Emma).

So, think of new ways to change and re-vamp old things - to make you love them again!!
Take Care, Laura Lee
