Crafty Fun with Adhesive Vinyl

I was working on a project the other day making sign lettering for my church and got a little carried away with the adhesive vinyl. I’ve always wanted to decorated the top of my laptop (back side of the screen), so I took the plunge. I thought I’d show you the results and catch up a little on the “life” and “creativity” part of the blog.
Here’s what it looked like before I messed with it:
And after…
I have a Silhouette SD machine. It’s the older model and it was much cheaper than the new model, but I love it! The new model Silhouette is even better, so imagine the possibilities! Using the software, I can design any shape cutout on my laptop without needing cartridges like other machines need. I know it’s difficult to tell in the photo, but I used a metallic silver vinyl, since it matched the other silver accents on my computer.

Since I had it out, I made some house numbers for the front door and put new letters and numbers on the mailbox. And then I forced myself to put it away so I could work on other things.

Can you see how addicting this hobby might be?

  1. This is great!! I have a Silhouette, too. I was never going to get one of those crazy cutting machines but then I saw all the Silhouette could do – and without cartridges! So I took the plunge thinking how foolish it was and I would probably never use it… Now I use it constantly to make cards, cut stencils, make gift tags, print and cut embellishments for my journal, etc, etc. It is tough to imagine having to put it away!
