Stickers for Valentines

So I confess, I'm a little obsessed with everything that Nancy Kubo designs. I've already made cards and buttons with her latest Nancy's Valentine's Day graphic set, but I wanted to do more. One of my favorite things to make with my Silhouette Cameo is stickers and so I decided to make some with this set too.

Using Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, I came up with this: (see screenshot below)

I could squeeze four square groups (two 3.75"x3.75, and two 3"x3") of images on a letter-sized sticker sheet. To minimize wastage, I filled the blank spots with individual images.

To print-and-cut these out, I printed once, and cut twice. The first cut was a kiss-cut. That is when I set the Cameo to cut with less force so that the backing paper is not cut through. When the machine has finished kiss-cutting, without unloading the sticker and the cutting mat, I set the Cameo to cut a second time and with a stronger force. This time, it cuts the squares through backing paper.

I used the cut settings that I had mentioned previously and in several older posts. If you had missed them, you can find the settings in the post HERE.

  1. Hi Jin,
    I am new to the Silhouette so I had been learning from your video. Just like to ask how do you get the coloured background for the stickers ? I only know printing stickers on white sticker paper.
