Using the Silhouette for Planning!

If you have been following me on Instagram and Facebook, you might have seen lots of pictures of my silhouette portrait and the stickers I have been making! I am in love with this machine. It is best! I can literally use it for everything! I am still learning as I go and I will be sharing my designs for free as a printable here on my blog.



First and foremost, this machine is absolutely perfect for getting perfect kiss cut sticker sheets! Sure you can just buy tons of stickers already made, but wouldn't it be nice to have your own customized stickers? Just the way you like, the way you want, the way you've always imagined! Well, now I can make any kind of stickers or labels for our planners! You can use their designer studio to get the perfect sized label to fit your Erin Condren,  Plum Paper Planner, Day Designer, Filofax, Kikki-K, whatever you have! It will be so much easier to cut these section heading stickers and these banner planner stickers! They have all kinds of sticker paper for us to use too! There's clear sticker paper, white sticker paper, gold foil, silver foil, adhesive washi sheets, and sooo much more!

Can you imagine what you can make. I'm thinking dashboards, custom cut quotes, bookmarks, cute paper clips, and ... yeah I can go on forever...


I also made some labels for my Erin Condren Address Book to use as a password keeper. These were super tiny and would've taken me years to cut by hand!


Here is another set of Silhouette Stickers that I have made...cute weather stickers! I was so proud of myself for getting it to cut so nicely on my first try. I just left the default settings and it worked perfectly!


I quickly learned about offsetting and made my cuts even more precise and perfect!


The silhouette isn't only for stickers however, there are so many digital designs in their shop that I bought with the free $10 download card in the box! Some that I think are perfect for planning include the:


That's crazy right?! Especially the 3D ones, you can make all kinds of organizers, drawers and more to store all of our little planning essentials! I totally wanted all of those organizers! Look at those chevron cut dividers, and cute stickers. The possibilities are literally endless!
Here are some dividers I made using the personal sized dividers design, I adjusted it a bit to fit my A6 and they fit pretty well!


I am also currently using some of their designs to decorate my son's first birthday coming up really soon! We are going with a vintage airplane theme!  I plan on using their tattoo sticker paper to print out "Jax" with an airplane as a party favor hehe. And I bought their Metallic Sketch Pens to write and draw a design on the favor bags. I will show that in another blog post though!

 I hope you enjoyed this post and find more ways to use your Silhouette!

Hi Wenda. Thanks for this interesting post. I have a Silhouette Cameo, but only started recently using it for my planner. Never tried making stickers. Definitely a must try. Going to look for their gold sticker paper and try.
