Free Printable Weekly Mini Kit Planner Stickers - Bright Summer

I am so, so, so happy warm weather is finally here!  You know what I hate though?  Yard work.  It's not my jam, so everyone just has to deal with the fact that my flower beds are pitiful.....it seems no matter how hard I work, its not ever done.  So, just nope.

I'd rather be crafting anyway.

Today I have for you a free printable sticker kit designed for these week on one page vertical inserts in the shop.  These are the inserts I've been using lately in my planner and I have to say I really do like them.  I used to be a no-white-space planner in my week on four page vertical inserts but these week on one page really lend to some white space (at least for me).  Of course, you can use these in any style planner - just have at it!

There are  two styles of these stickers - one where the patterned full boxes have a faded white box in the middle to write on, and one that doesn't have this.  There are also two file types - a Studio file to use with your Silhouette and a PDF.  But guess what?  If you follow the steps in this video tutorial you can totally use the Print then Cut feature of your Cricut Explore to cut these as well!  Both files feature an image area of 5.5 x 8 inches - the maximum Print then Cut area that the Cricut Explore can handle (I based it off the measurements for the Chrome browser so the image would work for those you may use Design Space in Chrome - that is my browser of choice).

If you have a Silhouette, simply open the Studio files and find that the cut lines already exist.  You may have to do some fancy pants stuff with your blade depth and registration marks since all Silhouettes are different.  If you don't want to waste space, use the knife tool to chop up the image and move it (with the cut lines) around. Duplicate parts that you want, etc, to fill up the print area of the Silhouette.
If you have a Cricut Explore, simply use a PDF to JPG converter (like this one) to make the PDF into a JPG to upload to design space.  Following this tutorial, you can erase the white of the jpg and have perfect cut lines for this sheet!  Once you add the image to your canvas, be sure to size the width to 5.5 inches (the height should automatically change to 8) and hit the Go button.  It is the perfect size for the Print then Cut area of Design Space.  If you get an error that the the image is too big, be sure you've sized it properly.

If you don't have either of these machines - you seriously should consider getting one!  The Silhouette is a bit more advanced that the Cricut Explore, but they both are worth it (I have both and use both for different things!)  Check out my video tutorials here and my Cricut projects on the blog here.  But, if you still want to cut by hand - simply download the PDF and get to snipping.

The headers in this printable have been left blank so that you can customize them and print as many as you'd need.  The printable features a limited amount of each element so printing at least 2 of these will get you most of what you need - so make seven To Do headers then sevn Today headers, etc in your design program and print. This can be done in both Silhouette Studio and Cricut Explore (both programs can be used for free!)  However, if you have access to neither you can use an online PDF editor like PDFescape to overlay text.  I like this one because you can rotate the PDF to overlay the text properly.  Then save to your computer and print!  Easy peasy.


I hope you enjoy this printable, please remember that this is for Personal Use only.  Do not claim this as your own, do not give this freely to others (printed or through file sharing), do not sell this printable in any form,  do not link to the file itself please link to the blog post.  Please play nice - that is just the right thing to do.  The patterns used in this kit are from the Pixeled Paper Blog.  

Let me know if you've used them, I'd love to see your layout on Instagram!  Share it with me by tagging @fivesixteenths because I'm a sucker for planner layouts!!

xoxo, Moe
