How I Make Planner Stickers
After several months of trying, failing, and ignoring the machine, I finally found my fit. If there's anything I learned that through this process, it is to have a go, don't be afraid to get it wrong, and stay with it.
For the longest time, I've wanted to make a video and make planner stickers. I got my Circut Explore back in April this year, and after a few failed attempts at making my stickers, and playing around with lots of new designs that I created on my iPad pro, I gave up for a second. I tried looking online, but everyone seemed to have their settings, and I guess it does come down to the type of sticker paper you choose to use and a whole batch of test prints to find the one that's right for you.
As a member of the bullet journal community, I love making stickers to help me decorate my spread. I also loved creating and drawing by hand, but with the craziness of juggling a full-time job, a business, and other passions and projects, I found it difficult to find the time required to sit down and illustrate my journal. By creating stickers of my drawings has been fun and time saving because I only need to create them once and print as many as I want to then place them throughout my monthly spread - I find two sheets more than enough to help make my notes look pretty too. I love the freedom and flexibility that it gives me to decorate my journal or work notes in a way that helps me remember what I've written and encourages me to pick it back up again and reflect through the different monthly spread themes I've now set.
To make my stickers, I use the following tools:
- iPad Pro & Apple Pencil
- Adobe Photoshop
- Circut explore
These are an investment but they are so worth it if that's your goal. To view our planner stickers in shop.
