Silhouette Planner Stickers That Will Make You Crazy With Happy!

silhouette-planner-stickers-will-make-crazy-happy

I have learned a lot about my Silhouette this week.  I have had it for a year and love what I have created so far but this week I learned more about some of the more detailed design functions.  And wait until you see the planner stickers I created!

This project is for the Monthly Silhouette Challenge that is hosted by Cat Golden of Pocket Of Posies.  She does a wonderful job coming up with a theme for each month. This month’s theme is “Organization” and it was such a challenge but in a good way.  These posts help me to get out of my comfort zone and jump into some new Silhouette territory.

Silhouette Planner Stickers

I’m so happy with my new planner for 2017 and I see planner stickers everywhere that are so cool.  I knew that I could design my own and use the Silhouette features to print and cut them on sticker paper.

Supplies Needed: I have included some affiliate links for your convenience.  You can read my full disclosure here.

The Icons

These stickers include fun icons for everyday, weekly and occasional events and chores.  They include:

  • dentist
  • vet
  • vehicle tune-ups

Household chores or events:

  • trash day
  • recycle day
  • laundry
  • cleaning/vacuuming

Other activities and appointments:

  • Hair cut
  • shopping
  • exercise (weights and running/walking)
  • Church activities
  • school activities
  • Pizza/Wine night
  • Eating out
  • Travel
  • Birthday/Party events
  • Computer work time

Money type activities:

  • Pay days (money bag or the green dollar sign)
  • Paying bills (red dollar sign)

Then I added in a star for other important events

 

How To Print and Cut Your Planner Stickers

Step 1:

Download the files and open them in the Silhouette program.  I found it easiest to finish one file completely before downloading the second one.  Also, once it is in the Silhouette program, don’t click anywhere on document itself.  Just stick to the settings below, because you may change the cut lines and it will be hard to get them back to the correct position.  If this happens, don’t save it, close it and reopen it in the Silhouette program.

When it comes up it will look like this.

Step 2:

Click on the Registration Marks icon in the upper right corner of your screen, as is shown in the screenshot above.

In the settings, click to turn them “on”.  You can adjust them or you can leave them as default.  The default seemed to work fine with mine.

When they are turned on you will see a small black box into the upper left corner and a mark in the upper right and the lower left corners.  The Silhouette will read these marks and cut exactly where you need it to on the printed material.

Step 3:

Print page 1 of the planner stickers with the registration marks onto your sticker paper.  My printer worked fine when I practiced on regular printer paper, but when I printed them on the sticker paper the registration marks did not print dark enough for the Silhouette to read them.  I fixed this problem by using my sharpie marker to darken the registration box and lines.

The stickers look big when they are printed because I added extra color or “bleed off.”  If the Silhouette cut is off a little bit, the white paper still won’t show.

The final stickers are about 3/4 of an inch.

Step 4:

Apply the sticker paper to the cutting mat in the upper left corner.  Make sure is it aligned with the grid lines on the mat.

Step 5:

Next, load the mat with the sticker paper into your Silhouette machine.  Click on the cut settings. Be sure to use the “cut edge” setting as the arrow shows below, and the inner circle has the bright red cut line showing.  Click on white sticker paper setting.  I had my blade set at 2 which is the suggested setting for the sticker paper.  It worked perfectly.  Cut the stickers.

Step 6:

Finally, remove from the mat and enjoy your new stickers with your planner!

Repeat steps 1-6 for pages 2 and 3 of the planner stickers.

I hope you love your planner stickers as much as I do.  As you can see I have already started using them.

    I have no idea what a Silhouette is but wish I had one. Love the stickers you made and I would buy a pack at a store if I saw something like this. You could sell them in your sidebar. If only a chore sticker would make them do the chore- now that would be my greatest hope-LOL. You’re my big inspiration, my friend.

      Haha Sue. You would love a Silhouette! And you would make beautiful projects with it. Thanks so much for the comment. I would love it if the sticker would actually make me do the chore.
