DIY Laptop Skin Tutorial and Silhouette Cameo Giveaway ($350 value)!!

Happy Fourth of July!!

And to celebrate — I have a FABULOUS giveaway from Silhouette.

 But first, here’s a project I made using the designer edition software.


DIY Laptop Skin

You know I have to embellish everything!!

So of course I really wanted to dress my computer up. And using vinyl is a fun way to do it. The vinyl just peels right off when you get tired of one design. Plus, it adds a layer of protection too!

This project was a fast and easy one. And before the Silhouette’s Designer Software it would have been hard to cut out the Apple logo. But now all I had to do was find a free .SVG file download of the apple logo and then brought it into the Silhouette editing window and selected the “cut edge” option so the Silhouette would cut around the apple image.

Then all I had to do was transfer the vinyl onto transfer tape and then transferred the vinyl to the laptop.

And I love how it matches my Silhouette Carrying Case — so fun!!

If you are thinking about getting a Cameo, here is a great deal this month. Almost $100 off!!

Just click on this Silhouette LINK to get the deal.

Put the Silhouette Cameo bundle in your cart and then enter “TATER” in the box that says “Apply Code”.
