FINALLY! I have STICKERS!!

Howdy Crafters -
On Black Friday in November of 2016 I purchased a Silhouette Die Cutting Machine - the Portrait. {Early Christmas gift from Hubby!]   I did many reviews on this machine before I purchased and I really, really wanted to create stickers!
I have been using my Portrait to make enormous amount of projects and cards - using SVG die cuts - both free and purchased and I am having so much fun in crafting with this wonderful machine.
Well, after 10 sheets of running pre-made stickers through my Portrait to cut with no luck, and watching numerous videos on HOW TO FIX THE Registration Failed Problem, I FINALLY found a video on You Tube that GAVE ME the ANSWER to print and cut stickers - Happy Dance Day Here~

Here is the Video link - CLICK HERE -  if you are having difficulty cutting stickers and I might add - I have also been coloring in the registration marks with a black Sharpie to make them darker as well.

So here are some photos of my sticker errors in getting them to cut on the Portrait and finally print and cut sticker sheets  that came out so I can peel off the sticker! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day! Gail
Mickey image from Internet - Failed to cut and print stickers through Portrait - I used Sizzix shaped die cuts and one fussy cut with scissors on the right side of photo - I cannot let anything go to waste!
My first successful cut through Portrait - notice I darkened the  registration marks in the corners with a Black Sharpie - I also followed the video to manually line up the left square under the cutting blade - these were FREE through Silhouette School - thank you very much - love them!~
Here is my last successful cut of stickers - the fish and Mickey were from the Internet prepared in Silhouette Studio for sticker print and cut - the other stickers were free - I notices I cannot fill an entire sheet - at least at this point - but I do have to blacken my corner registration marks as well as do the manual line up if I get the dreaded Failed Registration Mark Error
It would be an honor to share with
