I love my new Carpe Diem planner, but I started to notice that it was having a problem. The pages at the back of the planner were getting caught behind the rings. If this happens over and over again, the pages in the back will rip out and that will break my heart!
Hi planners!! I couldn't find any tutorials on how to make icon stickers, but they're super easy to make so I thought I would make a video tutorial to share with you all. This is my first video tutorial EVER so bare with me. I hope you enjoy this and subscribe for future tutorials. Good luck & share your creations!
Software you'll need:
Silhouette Studio Basic Edition (Free download): http://www.silhouetteamerica.com/software
As promised here are your free printables. All icons are from Flaticons.
Seriously since my last blog post (last night) I feel like I've literally entered a rabbit hole. In this case, the rabbit hole of creating planner stickers! I'm learning so much and am so excited to share with you guys! So if you're like me --you're either too broke to buy planner stickers on Etsy or too creative to not create your own! I have good news for you, it's super EASY!
There are many ways to create planner stickers -- but here is how I do it. ---> Also make sure to read the blog post before this one for other great websites to get FREE GRAPHICS to use for your stickers.
1. Download Silhouette Studio
I know what you're thinking, don't freak out on me just yet! I was reluctant to try this software at first because I didn't own a fancy silhouette cutting machine (although I hope to someday--maybe). BUT GREAT NEWS --- YOU DON'T NEED A FANCY MACHINE!! The software is free to download (there's a more advance version you can pay for--BUT who doesn't like free stuff). Click here to download the "Silhouette Studio Basic Edition."
2. Watch these tutorials
It may seem overwhelming at first learning a new software, but I guaranteed you, you won't regret it! It has made designing so much easier compared to what I was doing before.
Basics - Boxes
I'm so happy that I'm able to dive back into my creative side. Throughout college I worked as a graphic designer making lots and lots of pretty things, but never really got to play around much. NOW I finally have a purpose to & it's so much fun. It's unfortunate I don't own Adobe Photoshop, so it takes so much longer to create anything graphically.
If you're like me, I'm glad you've stumble upon this blog post, because YOU DON'T NEED PHOTOSHOP to create great printables! These are websites I've used to make awesome printables +++ go to the end for a FREE Winter Kit printable!
This is by far the BEST FREE online photo editing software I've come across. If you're already a photoshop user, this site is a simpler version of photoshop. It's less advanced (since it's FREE!) but it gets the job done!
Art & Design
I love designing and doing any kind of graphics. Let's grow & share our passion together.
