FRENCH KISS - Daily Doodles Calendar Pages | with Traci

Back on December 28, I posted several pages of a calendar project I was working on.  I only had six months completed at that time, but I have two more to share with you today!

I used the new French Kiss collection for both of these pages.  Like my previous project, I started with daily doodles calendar sheets, and hung the completed pages on 12x12 ClipArt Boards. 
I covered the top of the calendar with the adorable Passion for Plaid paper.  I used stickers from the icon sheet, and mini icons, and a few die cuts from the Odds & Ends.
For the months, I used the Daily Doodles Lily White Month Stickers.  The red and blue in this collection worked perfectly for my July 4th theme.  

I haven't completed June, August, September and November yet, but stay tuned! I will share them over on my blog at Artsy Albums when I finish them!

FRENCH KISS Pocket Pages | with Nathalie

Today, I would like to show you how versatile the French Kiss collection is by using it for a non-Valentine's Day project. I created a pocket page spread to record a one-day visit of Paris last Summer. Here it is in my yearlong 6x12 album:
I love the red, white and blue color combination in the collection and it looks so good with a touch of pink. The three patterned paper pockets were created with the 6x6 French Kiss paper pad and my title was made using a die-cut from the Chit Chat pack. It is a speech bubble but I cut it off to make it look more like one of the flowers from the paper:
I also added an enamel heart on top for more contrast. I bordered the bottom of the photos with my favorite new washi, the City of love washi tape. For the next pocket, I typed my journaling on light pink grid paper from the Floral-Graph 6x6 Petite Print pack, added a few shaped Sprinkles and a die-cut from the Odds&Ends pack.
Finally, to balance things out, I decorated one more pocket, for the right page, continuing with the floral theme and colors of the left side. I couldn't resist using a Tower of love Doodle-pop and I layered it over more die-cuts from the Odds&Ends pack:
On top of the pockets because it goes across, I added a sentiment cut from the 12x12 mon Amour sheet.
With all its French elements making a page about Paris with French Kiss was a no-brainer but if you just change up a couple of my die-cuts, you can make the same pocket pages about pretty much anything or anywhere! I'm thinking Mother's Day, 4th of July, your cute pet... or everyday adventures. Happy crafting!

FRENCH KISS Together Forever Layout | with Caroli

My kids have 8 years of difference, and in there are some days when this difference really matters. My daughter is so patient but the little mister is such a tornado... Anyway, at the end of the day they love each and take care of other no matter what, and this what I wanted to document in this sweet layout I made using French Kiss collection. 

I wanted to include circles (you know I'm the crazy circles lady!) but this time in a different way, so I cut halves of circles on left and right of the page. Then I got a bit crazy with embellishments from the Odds&Ends package, and I played with volume and layers with the help of some foam dots.

The title is the element that links both sides of this layout, and I created it using free font Better Together and a heart diecut from Odds&Ends package. 

I hope you like the clean and simple design of this layout, it was super easy to do and it came put pretty! Also, this kind of design allows you to use plenty of photos and embellishments without making it look too busy. 

If you have any question just leave me a comment, have a great day!

FRENCH KISS Daily Doodles Planner Pages | with Anabelle

I love decorating my planner during February.  The colors and motifs are all so pretty! French Kiss is the perfect collection to use all month long. It's actually so versatile, you can use it all year! In my last couple of posts, I showed you my Ladybug Daily Doodle and how I set it up using French Kiss. I have my pockets and dashboard done, my calendar and now I've started using French Kiss on my weekly inserts. Here is a look at my week.

I just started using my TN as my work planner. I love the grid sheets in this insert as I was able to create my own design to match my work needs. Here, I used the Fancy Frills to define daily sections on the right side of the page. I used the Teeny Type to label the days and I added some stickers for decoration.

On the left hand side, I chose to add some die cuts and more stickers and left space for my goals for the week.

Since I like having extra space for note taking, extra lists, etc. I decorated the following two pages and created an additional area for this week's information. Designing my insert on the blank grid sheet allowed me to do this.

I added some washi tape. Then I cut to journaling cards and made little flaps on the page. It gives me another space to write on if need be. I used the Teeny Type stickers, again, to define more note taking area. And since the foldable envelopes are just so cute, I had to add one of those on.

As you can see, creating and personalizing an insert is so easy to do using the French Kiss collection along with the Teensy Type and Fancy Frills. And the best part is if I need to modify my design next week, I can do so.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

FRECH KISS Love Is In The Air Layout | with Virginia

Hope you are enjoying all the fabulous French Kiss creations this month. For the project I'm sharing today I went 'all in' with the Paris love theme. This page shows my sweet friend, Catherine and her handsome hubby, sharing a beautiful moment in front of the Eiffel tower celebrating their 25th Anniversary!

A memorable photo capture with the iconic Eiffel tower in the backdrop calls for a equivalent memorable embellishment and the Eiffel tower electronic cutting file (available at Lori Whitlock) is perfect for this occasion! 

I used the 12x12 clouds paper for the page base and I played up this motif by cutting out additional clouds in white card stock and dry embossed them to add texture. 

The chit chat speech bubbles are great way to embrace the sentiments on this page, there are so many in the package, you are sure to find something that will fit your theme.

 Thanks for dropping by the blog today, hope you have an awesome crafty day!

FRENCH KISS Gift Set | with Brigit

This gift set using the French Kiss collection would make a great gift for any occasion throughout the year.

The beautiful bright papers and lovely designs in this collection really made this project pop, it was so much fun to put together!
The poodle sticker from the mini icons sticker sheet was my total inspiration for making this shaped dress card. I used the girl's dress and boys scarf from the french kiss couples svg file to create the dress, just a couple of alterations using silhouette studio.
I love the Ooh La La from the chit chat pack, it was the perfect embellishment for the front of this bag.

FRENCH KISS Cookie Holder Box | with Tya

Happy Saturday everyone! I love making cute treat holders during the holidays and for Valentines Day around my house we always had sugar cookies - so I decided to use the adorable French Kiss collection to make a few cookie holders.

To make these little beauties, I turned to my trusty Silhouette to cut out this box (Heart Cookie Box by Sweet Afton)  out of the Navy Dot pattern paper. I glued them together and then decorated the boxes with some Odds and Ends, Chit Chat, a scallop heart border sticker from the This and That Sticker Sheet and the Heart Throb Shape Sprinkles. Here are a few close-ups of the boxes:

These were a breeze to put together and they are such a fun way to give a special treat to your Valentine! I hope I have inspired you to make a few of these boxes today! Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

FRENCH KISS Love Letters | with Jomelle

Love Letters for My Love - One of my all time favorite movie is "Letters to Juliet" This movie inspired me to create a "Love Letters for my Love" page in my Daily Doodles. It will be perfect to give these love letters to my husband on Valentine's Day.

I hand cut a heart shape using different pattern papers that I will use to write my love letters and I will place them inside the envelope.
To create the envelope, I cut one of the 12x12 cardstock paper 9 5/8 by 9 5/8. This size will make the 4x8 envelope which is the closest size to Standard TN.
I then scored it following the instructions in my envelope punch board. 
 I cut a little piece of the top and bottom part of the envelope as you can see below.
Before I glued the bottom part of the envelope, I added a white rubber band. The rubber band is how I will be able to add the envelope in my Daily Doodles.
You can see in this picture that I added the new envelope I created to hold some embellishments.
Doodlebug always have the cutest and most adorable embellishments.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I was able to inspire you to create your own Love Letters section in your TN.
