It’s not a huge secret that I l-o-v-e my planner, having written about it several times before. While I could spend hours shopping for planner supplies, I wanted to create something customizable for my planner. Creating your own free planner stickers is not only easy, it’s fun and can save you money! Not only will I show you how to make your own stickers, but I’ve got a sheet of free printable stickers already made for you to download.
While you can make your own stickers using Photoshop or other programs, this tutorial will walk you through how to create them in Microsoft Word, which is more widely accessible and realllllly simple to use.
- Open a blank new document. Find the columns button and click it—select three columns (you can also find it under Format –> Columns).
- Add a new image from your file.
- Resize the image to the width of your planner space. The height will automatically adjust as long as they are linked (that checked box on the end indicates they are). I use the Happy Planner, so I set my width to 1.5 inches. From what I can tell, Erin Condren Planners have the same width (the vertical version).
- When you are ready to add the next image, hit enter and start steps 2-3 over again. I usually can fit about 9 images on one sheet.
- Print on paper or sticker paper.
- Cut out carefully and add to planner!
See, it’s super simple! I’ve been on such a kick with making these lately. I recently got to attend an event at Nebraska Furniture Mart in Dallas with Canon and Kristine McKay, from Create and Craft. She did a fantastic job showcasing her crafting skills and talking about her number one favorite crafting tool—can you guess what it is?
Her Canon printer.
I never would have considered a printer part of my crafting arsenal—in fact, I didn’t even own my own printer at the time! I just used Scott’s in-home office printer and only printed contracts and boring things like that. After seeing all the gorgeous things Kristine made with her printer, I was sold—no joke, I bought myself a Canon printer a few days later and have been obsessed with printing things lately! Check out her gorgeous work:
I love how Kristine personalized all these items with her own photography—I’m super passionate about having a camera that’s easy to use and of fantastic quality, because these are your memories, you guys! I’ve used Canon cameras since high school (my nickname was Paparazzi, no joke!), and when I started my photography business several years ago, I upgraded from a point and shoot camera to my first DSLR. I was very, very quickly hooked and traded up to a new one (I currently use the Canon 5d Mark ii, but am saving up for the Canon 5d Mark iii, the newest version!). I’ve stuck with Canon because I’ve been so, so pleased with the quality of their cameras.
Luckily for you guys, Canon and Nebraska Furniture Mart are SUPER generous and have offered a Canon PowerShot SX420 IS as a giveaway for one of you lucky readers! This camera is awesome—it has a 20 megapixel sensor for extra sharp images and built in wifi.
And as an extra bonus, I’ve made you all some really cute printable free planner stickers! Cute, right? You can download them by clicking here. Just print, cut and stick in your planner!
