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!
