Lori Whitlock Creative Team - October Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to our October blog hop!  You should have arrived here from Lori's blog where you can pick up this cute freebie!

For my project today, I used  Lori's cut files and some of her digital papers to create stickers for my  planner.   I used two different techniques to create them.    This is what they look like.

First, I filled some cute banner shapes with pattern papers from the Story of Family Collection.   This is really easy to do.  I opened both my Silhouette Software and the folder that holds my pattern paper. 

Once you have your shaped scaled to the size that works for your planner, simply drag the pattern paper on top of the shape to fill it.  I wanted to have a white area to write on so I used the rectangle tool to draw a rectangle and placed it on top of my banner.  

The other technique I used was to create a cut file from some of pgn elements in Lori's digital paper collections. 

To do this, simple drag the element you want to turn into a sticker onto your mat.  Resize it to fit your planner then click on the trace tool at the top of the screen.  Click select trace area and draw a square around your design.  Deselect the high pass filter and adjust the theshold slider until your element is almost solid yellow.   Finally, click trace outer edge.  Now you can print your stickers and then cut them out with your Cameo.  

Here's how my planner looks all decorated:
