Hello everyone!! I've been feeling a bit blah lately when it comes to blogging. Part of it is because I've been busy in my life outside of blogging and YouTube (but you can always keep up with me on Instagram). In fact, this coming Monday I have a root canal appointment. Yikes!!! And to tell you the truth I'm a lot bit nervous! I've only had one cavity filled before when I was younger....but somehow my tooth got angry at me. I also think I'm developing another cavity. I know that is so gross.....and I don't understand because I brush religiously and I even floss!! So I don't know what is going on....

But that isn't what this post is about. This post is about how I'm going to start making Cricut friendly planner stickers. I love my Cricut Explore for paper crafting but it isn't my favorite for sticker making. In Cricut Design Space you can't create an offset, the print area is very small (from a PC), and you can't control the bleed. This has led me to use another program called Inkscape to design stickers to cut with my Cricut Explore and now I can use my machine to is max for planner accessories! I've finally become a little bit more proficient in this program so I'm going to start offering some free printable stickers designed exclusively for the Cricut Explore. These will be PNG files that require little clean up in Cricut Design Space.
I've added a line of branding text that you can erase for easy cutting with your Cricut Explore, but remember that all of the printables here on the blog are for personal use only. If you're down for a free download, click the link above. If you have a Silhouette and would like to use these stickers you totally can - you'll just need to use the trace feature to add cut lines. I have a video tutorial on using a PNG with you Silhouette software here - just follow the part after creating the image in Inkscape, and you'll be good.
**I've updated the download to have a PDF file included as well**
