- Click “Design” top right to access Cricut Design Space. If on a PC, download Design Space for Desktop.
- Sign in with your Cricut ID (or register if not already signed up).

Your pattern will appear in the dropdown list.
Printing your Stickers
- When you’re happy with your sticker sheet, click Make It at the top right.
- After a few seconds, your sticker sheet will appear on the screen. A black border will appear around your stickers – this is the registration mark border. This is what the Cricut uses to determine where to cut.
- Click Continue.
- Click Send to Printer. You may need to connect your printer if this is the first time printing from Cricket Design Space.
- If you leave the Bleed option selected, a small extra offset will be added around your stickers to ensure that when they’re cut, there are no white lines if it cuts slightly off.
Cutting your Stickers
- Place your printed sheet (when totally dry) onto your Cricut cutting mat. Align it to the top, left-hand corner. Ensure it’s flat on the mat with no bumps.
- Load the mat into your Cricut machine.
- Go back to the Make screen in Cricut Design Space.
- Check that your Cricut is connected to your computer – you can follow these instructions to connect via Bluetooth.
- Choose the Material type – select Paper.
- Leave the Pressure as Default to kiss cut your stickers.
- Press the Go button on your Cricut machine.
- After cutting, you can click the flashing arrow button on your Cricut machine to unload it.
In terms of the paper to use, you can either use Cricut printable sticker paper, or you if you have another preference, you can test and see what works best for your Cricut planner stickers.
