How to download printable planner stickers

When you purchase mine, the printables are emailed to you in a Zip file.

After you have unzipped the file, you’ll see it contains the following formats of the printables so you can choose the one you want to use:

  • PDF
  • JPG
  • FREE Silhouette Studio file showing cut lines
  • Some products include a PNG file to help cut with your Cricut. This is the one you need and I’ll be adding this to my range over time. Note: the product description will say if Cricut files are provided.

For this tutorial, we’re going to be using the PNG file with a transparent background.

You can use Cricut printable sticker paper or another make if you prefer. I share the exact sticker paper I use, and my best printer for Cricut in this program, along with my other insider tips on making your own planner stickers from home.

These are kiss cut Cricut instructions so that you can peel each sticker off individually, rather than having them cut straight through the sheet.
