Vinyl & the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder

Back to school is sneaking up on us quickly and I thought, why not make some fun labels for the kids' things?  So I did lol!
Did you know you can use Sharpies on vinyl and they won't smear??  Some of you may have seen my post about the new fluorescent Sharpies I found (if you missed it, it is right HERE)  I wanted to see how these Sharpies would work on the white vinyl, and when I showed my daughter she jumped up and down squealing, so I guess she liked it!  My son came running asking for some for him!

The fine point Sharpies will fit in the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder for both the Silhouette and the Cricut Expression 2.  Vinyl is a glossy surface, which can cause smearing so I slow the speed to 5 for these, and of course you don't want to crush the tip of your Sharpie so use a thickness of 1. 
I made these designs in Designers Edition of Studio.  I used a Lettering Delights thin font for the names and used the sketch feature in DE to change a regular oval to the loop de loop and the sketched oval design.  I then used an offset of the sketch for cutting around my design.  If you need to learn how to sketch a design then cut around it, I have a tutorial HERE.
