Vinyl Love {August’s Silhouette CAMEO® Promotion!}

First, a simple project. Then a sweet deal on the supplies. Ready?

I have commitment issues.

I can not commit to a phone cover.

I know it sounds silly, but I like to spice things up every now and then. What fashionable girl like myself doesn’t? So naturally, when I purchased my iPhone two years ago, I went basic black. No, not because there were just too many choices, and I felt overwhelmed so went for nothing at all. But because I looked at that plain, ordinary, not remarkable phone cover as a beautiful blank canvas.

I “change” my iPhone cover on a regular basis, but have only ever bought one. How could this be?


I’ve used scrapbooking stickers. I’ve used mixed media embellishments. And most recently, as seen in the pictures above, I’ve used adhesive backed vinyl and my Silhouette CAMEO®.

I’m completely in love (at least for the next few months…remember my commitment issues?) with this chevron monogrammed decal I made for my phone, with just two quick cuts with my CAMEO.

I designed the entire thing as one unit, seen here:

Then split it into what I would want cut in white adhesive backed vinyl:

and what I would want cut in pink adhesive backed vinyl:

Cut them both. Put one color on at a time. Could it be any easier?

NOTE: You may have take a tiny pair of scissors and cut the decal where it covers your camera lens! 

Ready for the best part?

    yep, Id luv to have a Silhouette to cut vinyl (other things too, LOL) for mailboxes and now my cell phone too 🙂 Thanks!!!

  2. Terrie says:

    I love how this looks! What a great idea!! I have a clear iPhone case so I can switch out scrapbook paper for different looks 🙂

  3. Nikki says:

    Thanks, girls!
    Vanessa, I was hesitant at first to make such a big purchase. It took me a long time to say “ok, I’m going to get one.” I was so nervous I wouldn’t use it enough to get my money’s worth from it. And the truth is, the opposite has happened. I use it for more than 70% of my projects! Many of which haven’t even made it here to the blog yet. I use it for things I never thought I would…sewing projects, home decor pieces, gifts. I even use it to create some of the pieces in my Etsy shop! When you decide to take the leap, let us know! XOXO
    And Terrie! I LOVE a clear phone case! Then I could really change it up every few weeks! I might have to get one of those!! 😉

  4. Angela says:

    Did you draw this design or is it in the Sihlouette program?

    • Nikki says:

      I drew this myself. If you use the “mirror left/right” and “duplicate above/below” it’s really not that hard to do.
      Do you have the software? If so, I can send it to you and you can just edit the monogram.
      Let me know!

      • Chloe says:

        Could you send me this as well! Just found your blog and I’m in love! Thanks 🙂

        • Ames (aka: Amy, but i'm Ames to anyone not formal) says:


          I realize it’s been 4 years since you posted this but if you are still checking your messages for this site, I would love to have this as well. I have had my silhouette cameo for right at 3 years and I’m still learning something new I can do with it! I LOVE the clear phone case idea that Vanessahad and to take care of the camera hole, with the right measurements, we can always just have the Came po precision cut it, if adding that extra step isn’t too far of a reach. 😎 Thank you in advance! *fingers crossed that you’re still checking this site* 😉

  5. Angela says:

    I do have the software, I love my machine but am still learning how to use it. If you could send me the file that would be awesome!
