Thanks for the great video! I've always used the Cricut transfer paper, but I like the idea of the clear Contac paper. I will definitely give it a try. I love the green girly bug with the eyelashes. Also, I'm probably going to have to get Car Decals, now after I saw the cute girl golfer & golf cart! Thanks again.
