My last post shared how I create planner stickers without a printer and just using my Cricut and Silhouette. I understand that everyone does not have one of these machines, or something similar. The good news is that you can STILL create custom planner stickers that look just as good. If you are interested, go ahead and watch my tutorial below.
If you are anything like me, you love decorating your planner. I am more of a functional planner, but I enjoy adding a few decorative pieces here and there. The easiest way to add pops of color or a happy little reminder, is to use stickers. I love buying stickers from Etsy, but my favorite thing to do is create my own stickers. That way I can choose exactly what I want and I get to be creative.
When creating planner stickers you can buy clip art, design your own digitally, or even hand draw your stickers. I have made them every way imaginable. One of my favorite ways is by using my Cricut or Silhouette. Using an electronic die cutting machine makes cutting stickers out really easy. Sometimes I don’t want to fuss with designing a theme, printing it out and then sending it to the machine to cut. I just want to cut and go. Well, that’s possible. Did you know that you can create cute and functional planner stickers without a printer?
All you need for this technique is sticker paper and an electronic die cutting machine. I use the Cricut Explore as well as the Silhouette Cameo.
Below you will find a video tutorial that will walk you through step-by-step on how I created these stickers. I will also leave a link to where I get my supplies.
Summer is amazing!! It’s way too hot to go outside, so why not stay inside and craft?! I love my paper crafting, but I am trying to branch into new crafting mediums. I want to try out mixed media, clay, painting, and very soon jewlery making!!! This weekend I have been making bows like crazy!!
The new year is approaching and I wanted to share with you, what my plans are for the new year. Of course I will still be crafting. If you weren’t aware, I make YouTube videos and I update there far more often then I post here. I need to post more often on my blog though, so I will make it a point to post more here. As far as my crafting goes, I’m going to be adding a new feature. My plan is to start recreating some popular Pinterest pins and putting my own spin on them or just recreating them in general. here is a video on my first pin of the new year. It is based on this pin.
Please have a safe and Happy New Year this evening. I’ll see you in 2013 with many more DIY projects to share with you.
