It’s Easy to Use Clipart and Your Silhouette Cameo to Make Stickers

I have been using my Silhouette Cameo for several years now. It’s my jam. I use it to cut fabric, felt, paper, vinyl, and of course, stickers! The possibilities with the Silhouette Cameo are endless. Looking to purchase a Silhouette Cameo? This is such a great deal on a package that gets you started!

A while back, I used to blog on my business branding site how to do things on the Silhouette. So I plan on reintroducing those to you here on this site as they are much more appropriate for this audience.

How to Find Clipart for Planner Stickers

Clipart is a super cute way to make stickers for your planners, rewarding your kids for homeschooling projects, and other crafty DIY things you want to make.

I sell clipart designs in my shop (or on Etsy) that I think you’d love to use to create stickers for your planners or other projects. If you’re looking to customize your planner, stickers are an excellent way to do that. I’m all about customizing things!

What Do I Need to Look For When Choosing Clipart?

First off, my clipart designs are all in PNG format so they are transparent and make it super easy to do this process. If you find yourself with a JPG file, it might be a bit tougher to trace the edges automatically.

Look for clipart that allows you to use them for personal use. If you want to sell stickers, you need to read terms of use from each designer carefully before selling them.

Choose clipart from my shop, or use the Friday Freebie design to create your stickers for yourself.

How to Prepare Your PNG Clipart for Cutting in Silhouette Design Studio

  • Be sure your clipart is transparent for easy tracing.
  • Use a program like Photoshop to fill in any areas you don’t want cut.
  • Drag your clipart into Silhouette Design Studio and size them for your needs.
  • Work with one clipart design at a time before duplicating it.

Print Your Designs on Sticker Paper

I use an Epson Artisan 1430 to print my stickers because the quality is superb. Just make sure that you’re using the right printer driver for the paper that you choose. I am using sticker paper from Online Labels.

Adjust Your Silhouette Cameo Cut Settings

For me, I have found that if I want to kiss cut (cut the paper, not the backing), I need to use the Sticker Paper setting that is set up on Silhouette. However, I need to change my blade to a 1 from a 2. Be sure to do this if you’re having problems with the blade cutting all the way through the paper and backing.
