It’s almost March, which means I needed to get my planner stickers laid out for the month so I could start planning. I actually had this layout done last month, but my cutting machine was giving me fits. I print out and cut two different pages of stickers – one that has a lot of the monthly stickers I use, like the month name and date covers, and one that has my notes/to-do list for the month.
However, I could not get my machine to cut the stickers correctly. I tried everything – and I mean EVERYTHING – to get it to work, short of recalibrating the machine. I even reconfigured the furniture in my office so that I could plug the machine directly into my PC rather than using the Bluetooth option. Finally, after multiple botched attempts and wasting a LOT of sticker paper, I tried to recalibrate the machine.
Imagine my surprise when everything cut perfectly!?
Our only guess is that somehow the file got corrupted and was causing the machine to cut wrong. Frustrating, especially since, of course, the corrupted file was my template. So, after recreating the template and the stickers – voila! Everything is done and cut exactly as it should be.
I didn’t want to do the traditional St. Patrick’s day art for March, but I did want to use a green color scheme. I added a couple of Celtic knots as a nod to my husband’s Irish heritage. Green isn’t my favorite color, but I like how it turned out.
Now my planner is complete and I can start working on checking off the other items on my to-do list!
