I was inspired by Christy Tomlinson of The Planner Society and a photo she posted on her Instagram “Instastories” that showed a half of a doily cut out of a card that she “franken-plannered” (that’s a word, right?)
I decided I wanted to recreate the look using the digital Halloween kit I had purchased and went to work finding a file that would help me achieve the look. What I found was a free file from BirdsCards. I was unable to the original file so I cleaned up the image and uploaded it as print and cut file in Cricut Design Space. When I selected the image on my canvas I chose “Cut” but you can change the color or add a pattern and print then cut if you desire.
I’d love to see what you create with this file! Look me up on Instagram @theorganizedmiss or on YouTube as The Organized Miss
The file was saved as a .png so you should have no problems uploading it into whatever machine you use.
I have a confession to make. I love stickers! I love using them in my planner. But, I really love designing the stickers. Did I say LOVE? I may be bordering on complete infatuation with all things adhesive. Having admitted this out loud here, I want to share with you why I use stickers in my planning and organizing routine. Creating word pictures with stickers help me associate information in my (still healing) brain. Using colors and images to assign importance or priority to tasks and events helps me to be able to recall the information and increases my retention.
In the coming weeks, I hope to share more on my learning style and planning/organizing routines but today I am sharing a tutorial video on how I design stickers using Inkscape.
I own a Cricut Explore Air2 and print and cut my stickers after designing them in Inkscape. If you have questions or would like to learn more, please drop me a line, I would love to hear from you.
Here’s a freebie for you to use in your ‘Miss’ lifestyle planning.
This set was designed as an experiment to fit my Large Happy Planner. It was one of the first full box sets that I attempted as I was looking for colorful and functional elements for the Large Happy Planner that was released in January 2017.
This set contains 4 full boxes, 4 heart checkboxes, 8 heart checklist flags for top three, 32 headers, 6 appointment labels, 8-weekend banners, 12 functional stickers, and a washi strip.
Just click on the images and save.
These can be cut by hand or can be cut using a cutting machine.
Cricut and Silhouette are two companies that produce cutting machines.
I currently own a Cricut Explore Air 2
It’s used to kiss cut stickers and works great but sometimes I cut them by hand when they are basic shapes like squares and rectangles.
