Stickers! Stickers! Stickers!

I am so impressed with these stickers for my planner. It's not just for planners either! I put one on the back of the card I sent to my dad for Father's Day. Nothing like a little inspirational mail to make a card a little brighter. There is a certain satisfaction that I get when I do it myself. I hope you do, too. Without further ado.. lets get this sticker party started!

You do not need a cutting machine or a printer to make stickers! It's true and I willing to do a tutorial for that if there is enough interest! Just ask. I use my Cricut Explore on washi tape setting (a custom setting) for my cuts.  I have to stress that the accuracy on my method isn't perfect. I am working daily on solutions and am putting a bug in Cricut's ear about getting this resolved. In time in time.. I technically did not use the entire sheet on this first addition because I wanted to focus more on solutions and got stumped on what to add in the white spaces.

Print the PDF file. Make sure that you DO NOT have borders on as it will throw you off. It took me a good minute to figure out how to get mine off, and life got better after that!
Download the SVG:
Open up Cricut Design Space: You will need to open a new project and upload the svg file you just downloaded. It SHOULD be sized for you and you then need to click on attach in the options. Should be that simple.  Hit Go and then set your custom setting.
Setting: Custom Washi Tape: 
If you are like me your printer may still be printing or just getting finished. Be careful to place your paper right at the very edge of the mat boundary. (At the 0 mark). Your printed images should (in theory) line up perfectly where it cuts. Again this is not without flaws, but you should do really well on bigger stickers like the rectangles and such.

Keep me posted!

Happy Planner Page Insert SVG!!

This file gets the job done, but it is not quite worthy enough to be sold due the fact that I believe everyone should have the best for their money and I am the bigger perfectionist ever! I would appreciate if you shared www.thatcrafty.chic verses sharing the file directly with your friends. I want everyone to be able to experience the growth of this blog and have the option of being current with the new things added. :) Now if you find a better version of this file before I can tweak mine I would love for you to share it with me. I would also love to hear about great planner resources as I am obsessed with stationary and crafting. I am involved in a lot of groups and I am always open to more.
