Hi and welcome back to my blog. Sorry I haven’t posted in the last two days,but as you know I’m trying to start a you tube channel,(restart my you tube channel). I recorded a video and now I’m in the process of editing and uploading it. But before I get to the blog, I want to like always thank you for subscribing and continuing coming back.
Today blog I want to share my planner sticker process. I design stickers I want to use in my big happy planner. For now I’m still trying to figure out how I want my planner to function. I’m using a big happy planner for the first time and with more space I have more stuff I would like to record.
To make my planner more functional, there are certain things I would like to track. I wanted my planner to function as a everyday planner,but also as a memory keeper. So today I will share how I make stickers using my cricut maker. To start I sit down and take measurement of my boxes and figure what I want my spread to be set up for the week. Now its time for me to open design space,(a cricut app) and work on my stickers.So to start I had to choose the shape of my sticker. Since the boxes in the Happy Planner is rectangle, I always start with a square. The square is than adjusted to the measurements I took when I started the desigining process.The next steps is the change the square to a lighter color. I do this because basically I just need the square to be cut out and if I use a color, I would have to have the color added by a printer before cutting and that could be expensive.Later on I will experiment with adding color using water paint or makers to add color to the sheet before cutting.The next steps is to pick my font and write out what I want my sticker to say. After that the text is added, it has to be sized to fit the square.I then had to change the text to a write setting and what type of pen I want to use. For this sticker I picked a black glitter pen.The last two steps is to attach the text to the boxes. If you skip this step, the cricut will cut out the boxes on one page and write the text on another page. You need to attach the text to the box so it will write the text in the square and than cut it out. The final step before you cut the stickers is to decide how many stickers you want, duplicate it and started to cut. I’m sorry I didn’t show you the finished sticker,but I want to add more items to this page before I cut.
So I hope you liked seeing my planner sticker process. I hope you be inspired to make your own stickers for your planner. I planning in the future to make icons and decor stickers for my planner, so stay here for that.I will now leave you like always,
