If you have a Cricut machine, you will want to see this! Honestly, I preferred using a Silhouette for planner stickers because I could never find an easy way to make my cut lines in the Cricut – especially for intricate deco stickers or those with a white background – but all that has changed. Now you have a quick and easy method for making your planner stickers when you have a blackout file. Many Etsy shop owners and other free printable sites will supply the blackout file if they do not give you the cut file already.
When I was searching for videos on how to cut stickers with a blackout file, they all mentioned using extra programs like Pixlr or Inkscape to make it work. I am here to tell you that you don’t need them!
Before I go any further. you are probably asking why don’t you just supply the cut files for both machines in your downloads. Honestly, it’s a lot of work, and my goal is to try and get out at least one new file a week. I really needed a one step system. The blackout file was the answer for the Silhouette but I was stuck on how to make it work for the Cricut. Problem solved.
I am going to show you how to make a print and cut planner sticker file WITH the offset using the blackout files – ALL in Design Space.
Here are the widths that you will need to adjust the boxes to in the print file image to fit each of the Happy Planner and Erin Condren planners:
As always, please be sure to leave me your feedback. I would like to make more videos for you soon. If you have any requests, just leave them in the comments below. Your feedback will be really helpful to me!
