Sticker Crazy


I really liked passing out stickers last year at ALT & BlogHer so much that I think I need to keep up that little trend (but not make the same mistake of slicing my fingernail in half). Since I was running low on stickers, I went a little die-cut crazy yesterday with my Silhouette machine. I made almost 200 vinyl die-cut stickers! There’s something about weeding out the negative space on a vinyl sticker that’s so therapeutic. I’m sure if I did it for about 15 minutes a day, I’d be a much more centered person.

This time around I still made my “i still love you” stickers, but I added to the mix with some little hearts. I designed the heart by hand-calligraphing the heart, scanning & cleaning it up in Illustrator. I’m happy with how it turned out. I’m having a hard time deciding what I want to plaster with my little hearts & “i still love you” stickers. It may just end up being the car.

Would you like one? I’ll mail a sticker to the first 10 people that comment on this post.

      um, YES!! I want one.. or can I have two? I want a heart AND the saying, lol!! I was just thinking that those would be perfect to stick on the corner of the bathroom mirror where my hubby stashes his toiletries :)

      p.s. thank you again for the book suggestions… I gave some VERY direct hints to DH that I want one for my birthday. So hopefully soon I’ll be coming to you for help with my novice calligraphy, lol

      I love the “I still Love you” stickers. They are very cute!

    9. I don’t need a sticker (though they are very cute!), but I’d love a post on Illustrator. What do you love about it? I’m on the fence. Could I clean up an image similarly on Photoshop? That’s what I currently use to clean up images, and it seems to do fine. I’m wondering if Illustrator is worth the extra $$ if I’d only use a fraction of it’s functions.

    11. LOVE these! I love the saying “I still love you” sooooo much! And I still love your blog!!

    12. DANG IT! I love the I still love you sticker but I’m the 12th, so I hope someone doesn’t get back to you with their address and you will pick me.

      Super cute.

      I just got a silhouette and have yet to crack it open (it was my christmas gift).

      Tomorrow just might be the day.

    13. Those look great! My silhouette cutter just arrived in the post today, I’m so excited to give it a whirl.

      Hope to meet you at Alt Summit. :)

      love your blog. best wishes for your pregnancy!

    30. […] I love how they turned out. I was pretty excited about alternating colors within my blog scheme, so I sorta went to town. I love the girly rainbow of color, they match the colorful stickers I put inside. […]
