Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer Embellished

I've seen a few people do the "Mixer Makeovers."  I received an early Christmas present from my amazing hubby; he replaced my 10 year old KitchenAid with a new Professional 550.  I never saw a vinyl design that I *loved* until I ran across this one at Little Birdie Secrets' blog.  I was instantly inspired.  The subway art that I've seen at Wonderfully Wordy isn't quite me, and although I like the swirls, it wasn't quite right for me either.  So, I started playing with Sure Cuts A Lot from Craft Edge to see what I could really do with my Cricut Expression without buying EVERY Cricut cartridge known to man.  I went ahead and bought the Sure Cuts A Lot program after using the trial version.  I initially tried our initial and a more intricate damask, but it was just a mess when I cut the vinyl.  So, I played with it some more, and I created this damask with a free downloadable font "Damask Dings."  I merged some together in Photoshop, and I used another script for the initial.  I've already made spice sugar cookies and a pecan pie, and I LOVE the new mixer and the new embellishments!  Who knows, maybe I'll make a few of these as Christmas gifts....
