Foiled Planner Stickers with Cricut Explore and the Minc

 I have been playing with planners.  I know... I am not a planner girl.  I don't have many appointments, my kids are grown and living on their own, so why do I need a planner?  Well, let me try to explain.
 Every since I was a little girl, I have always had a paper/pen obsession.  Office supplies have always made me giddy.  Every January, I buy a planner and every 3rd or 4th week, or so, in January, I put it someplace and never touch it again.  I've done it for years.  This year, I decided to take the Heidi Swapp Capture 30 class, because, I have all of her planners from last year and two from this year and again, I haven't used them.  Capture30 is really about capturing little glimpses of your daily life.  Not appointment planning, or to do list, though you can totally incorporate that, too, if you like.  It's about documenting your dreams, goals, hopes, memories, little things that make each day unique.  On top of that, you document it into a cute Heidi Swapp planner. 
Next up, I decided to take one of my 3 other 2016 planners and start using it in a similar, but playful way.  No pressure to schedule things, no pressure to mess it up.  I write with markers and pens and add pretty papers and just have fun with it.  I'm using a Happy Planner for my "fun" planning/journaling.  Turns out... I am a planner girl! 

I created these fun Gold Foiled Stickers using my Cricut Explore and the Minc.  I made a short tutorial, so you can make your own.  Enjoy!

  1. I love your planner sticker idea. I had yet to figure out how to get the Explore to cut where I want until I saw your video. I have to scan an image and make sure the size is edited in DS. Thanks! Now, back to your lovely stickers... What software did you use to create them?
