How to Customize Silhouette CAMEO and Silhouette Studio

Did you know you can customize your Silhouette CAMEO and Silhouette Studio with just a few clicks.  Of course Silhouette America wouldn't expect us crafty types to live with the boring ol' gray defaults.  That's why they're giving us options - color options - on both the Silhouette CAMEO2 (sorry CAMEO1/Portrait/Curio users) and in Silhouette Studio.

Let's start in the software. Open up Silhouette Studio.

Find the icon bottom that looks like a recycling icon with the three arrows going around in a circle.  When you hover over it, it will say "Change Theme."

Mine is along the top tool bar because I recently upgraded to Silhouette Studio Business Edition. If you're using standard Studio or Designer Edition, you'll find the icon in the bottom right corner of the window.

Click on click again...and again.

You'll rotate through the three theme colors and you can pick whichever you like best: white, gray or blue.  So fancy...okay not really, but it is kinda cool.

Now let's talk about the machine. If you have a Silhouette CAMEO 2 you can customize the color of the control panel.

Power the CAMEO on. It doesn't have to be plugged into your computer to make these changes. Click the gear button in the top right corner of the touch screen.

Tap "Color Scheme" pick one of the color schemes.  Once you've decided on a color, click 'Ok' and then hit the back arrow to return to the home screen.

Option 1 = blue, Option 2 = purple, Option 3 = gray. 

If you have the Silhouette CAMEO 1 or 2, you can also create a custom control panel cover.....I've shared a few tutorials (and even a free cut file) on how to do this on the blog and you can find them here and here.
