My Imagination Monday with My Cricut Craftroom





 Hi Crafters! It’s time for another My Imagineation Monday. 

I love using my Imagine and I wanted to create something new and exciting for you today.
I used My Imagine and the Ancestry cartridge along with printable vinyl to cover my laptop. 



1st I used the print feature on the imagine to print 2 12x12 pieces of the printable vinyl. 


I used the pattern on page 4 of the hand book.

My laptop measures 14 ½ x 9 ½

here is the printed vinyl

2nd I cut the 1st piece of vinyl down to 12x 9 ½
And applied it to my laptop.


*make sure to clean your laptop with a good cleaner. I used electronic wipes*

Now since my laptop was larger than my vinyl I had to “butt up” the 2 pieces of vinyl and I ended up having to overlap them by about 1” (see pix)


I love the way that it turned out, I have been wanting to personalize my computer for sometime and the other day while looking through my vinyl box I saw the printable sheets and decided to give it a try, I am so happy with the results and I didn’t have to pay $20 or more for a laptop skin.

Here is another look at before and after



Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope that you enjoyed my project.
Please be a dear and head over to My Cricut Craftroom and see what my fellow design team members have made.
