Blogmas day 18 | DIY Erin Condren Christmas stickers

To be honest, I am a total planner nerd. I have a vertical Erin Condren, and I carry it everywhere! I'm so in love with my EC, but I hate how boring my pages look when I haven't decorated them! :( So I made it a weekly habit to decorate my pages every Sunday evening.

I love buying pretty planner stickers on Etsy, but as they're often pretty expensive (shipping prices tend to be very high as well), I quickly got tired of spending a huge amount of money every time on weekly/monthly sticker kits. So after a while I started making my own stickers for free! :)

In this DIY I'm going to show you how easy it is to make your own stickers for your planner, scrapbook, or whatever you like to use stickers for! :) All you really need is a computer and a printer!

Step 1: Look online for pictures you'd like to use in your weekly spread. My favourite website for pictures is definitely Pinterest! I'm doing a Christmas spread this week for the holidays, but of course you can choose whatever theme you like :)

Step 2: Go to Photoshop if you'd like to edit your images, or just copy/paste them directly from Pinterest into Word if you do not wish to edit them.


Step 3: Right click on your picture, click on "format picture", and then go to "size". Make sure to uncheck the "lock aspect ratio" box, and resize your image height to 4.76 cm, and change width to 3,81 cm.


Step 4: Repeat step 1-3 for as many stickers as you like! :) Here are a few I made!


Step 5: Save your file as a PDF, and print! :) I personally like to use sticker paper to print my stickers on, but of course you can also use regular paper.
