Making your own Personalized Stickers

I had shared with you on yesterday's post that I would share with you how I make my own stickers.
I could use my xyron machine, but that is just something else I would have to bring upstairs.
So I found an easier way.
 I guess the first thing I should do is tell you why I want to make my own stickers.
Well for one thing, believe it or not, I don't have a sticker for everything.
I know hard to believe if you have seen my sticker binder ;)
Another reason is because my pages in my planner pages pretty thin, so when I stamp on the page it bleeds through.

So lets get on with it shall we.
I use Avery labels for mine. I am pretty sure that you can also get something similar at the dollar store.
I stamp my image on the label.

Then I like to colour the image in.
I don't sweat the colouring..I didn't even wear my cheaters.
Surprised myself that I actually stayed in the lines ;)

I cut the image out and peel off the backing and stick it on my planner page.
Doesn't the coloured one look I don't have to worry about the ink bleeding through to the back of the page.

Then I started to think what else could I do......
I know.. lets try to print some photos :)
So here is one of Kristy and her boyfriend ready for the prom :)
Not perfect, but perfect for my planner.

Then I thought lets try a photo I got off the internet of the movie I went to the other night.
It is pretty grainy, but then again, it is only for my planner, so it doesn't have to be perfect :)

I am still trying to use up all my stickers :)

Onto My Day:
Busy day for me.
Kristy had a doctor appointment.
Then went to the bank to exchange some money to American...yup another trip to the States soon :)
Next stop was to the mall as Heather was looking for a purse. Heather is not a girly girl, she does not own a purse. So I usually carry her wallet in mine, or in her pocket.
She has been looking for a black canvas type bag in a messenger style. But she wants a certain size and an inside pocket.
Of course we didn't find one to her liking, so I am thinking I will be making her one.
But I did find about 4 sets of 6x6 paper packs and some washi tape for me ;)
Then we were off to pick up some travel insurance.
Checked out another store for Heather's non-existent purse.
Then later in the evening Wayne and I went to pick up some groceries for camp this weekend.

I hope you all had a creative Thursday :)

Tracy :)
