I am so thrilled to be working with not only Cricut, but some other fabulous wedding related brands as well, to bring to life some super fun projects and posts to inspire your wedding.
I'm so excited to share these simple projects with you to personalize your weddings and wedding-related events using the Cricut Explore Air. This machine is incredibly powerful and it can do so many things, my mind is literally spinning at all the possibilities! This week's project is something that will help you personalize your wedding plans and your day planner! I created a set of adorable sticker designs that you can create using the Cricut Explore Air — there are stickers for everything you need reminders for along the way of your wedding plans — so amazing right? Just look at how stinking cute they are?!
With the Cricut Explore Air, the options for personalizing your wedding details are endless! This crafty machine can cut over 60 different materials with ease! From cardstock to vinyl, to iron-on transfer paper, to even leather! You can use this versatile craft tool to make any number of projects to make your big day shine. And you don't have to be an expert crafter to use it. There are plenty of projects that live in the Design Space software that allow you to create amazing projects on the fly! It truly is an amazing machine.
How to Make Wedding Planning Stickers with Cricut Explore Air
So, let's get started with how to make these stickers!
What you'll need:
- Cricut Explore Air Machine
- Cricut Design Space account
- Design Files (download them below)
- Color Printer (I used the Canon MG7720)
- Cricut Printable Vinyl Paper
Download the design files I've created! Click the button below to download the files you'll need to complete this project:
Upload the files into Design Space. The files will import very small. All you need to do to ensure they are the proper size is edit the dimensions in the edit pane on the right-hand side of Design Space once you've imported and selected the design. These are the dimensions you'll need to use to resize the files to the proper dimensions:
Circle Stickers File: Resize to 7 inches high
Month Stickers File: Resize to 6.5 inches high
Flag Stickers File: Resize to 5.5 inches high
Note: You'll need to import, print and cut each of these files one-by-one, so follow these instructions for each different sticker design to make all 3!
Once you've resized your sticker files in Design Space, you can click the green GO button in the top right. It looks like this:
The Cricut software will place the design on a page for you to print and then cut. Click the “PRINT” button to print your sticker design. Make sure your printer is loaded with the Cricut Printable Vinyl paper. In the Canon MG7720 I had to place the Printable Vinyl Paper face down in the tray to ensure it printed on the proper side.
Once you've printed your design, then mount your vinyl paper to a Cricut Cutting Mat, and insert it into your Cricut Explore Air. Make sure your Cricut materials dial is set on Vinyl+ so the machine applies the proper pressure to cut through the vinyl but not the sticker backing. Once the mat is loaded into the machine, you can click the Cricut GO button on your machine and watch it work its magic!
Repeat steps 2-5 for each sticker design file to create all 3 pages of stickers to use for your planner! Voila! You'll be left with 3 pages of peel and stick stickers to add to your day planner to keep you on track with all your wedding planning tasks!
I hope you love these wedding planning stickers and that they help you stay organized as you plan your wedding!!
Again, for this project I used the Canon PIXMA MG7720 Wireless All-in-One Printer, which Canon generously provided to me to create these projects! It can do so many things, just like the Cricut Explore Air, so it's an amazing duo to have together because the possibilities for Print + Cut projects are endless! Both of these devices are also WIRELESS, and are compatible with your computer but also many smartphones as well! I'm excited to share more projects with you over the coming weeks featuring this crafty duo of machines.
