Doodles and Dashes for Every Paper Project
Hello, friends! We hope you are enjoying the Doodles & Dashes Collection as much as we are. We have a few projects to share with you today, featuring all the hand-drawn, enchanting designs of this collection. Grab your favorite beverage, sit back, and get ready to be inspired by all the ways our Creative Team is enjoying this collection. Kylie shares how she utilizes this collection to spice up her weekly planning. "I wanted to create some art deco or as the monthly theme suggests- 'Doodles & Dashes' in my weekly planner pages. The Doodles & Dashes Flower and Doodles Stamp Set was perfect for what I had in mind. I began stamping a variety of the floral stamps to the outer edge of my A5 weekly inserts from the Doodles and Dashes Planner Kit using black ink. The detail in each stamp is simply amazing once it is on paper! I did this technique to both pages and at first, my plan was to colour them in. However, once they were on my pages I loved the black ink on its own and opted to layer some of the colourful rub-ons from the Doodles and Dashes Planner Add-On Kit¬†& Doodles and Dashes Modern Memory Keeping Kit instead. I love the effect this gave and the pops of colour. The floral stickers from the Doodles & Dashes Classified: Planner Kit were too pretty not to include on my pages so I layered several amongst the blooms. Also included in the Classified: Planner Kit was a sticker sheet featuring vines. I combined two long strips of these across both pages. I loved how they looked like they had been hand-drawn or 'doodled'. You can see exactly how my pages have come together in this 'plan with me' video."

"I do a gratitude page, in order to write at least 3 positives things per day, every month. Each month it's about dashes, as I use watercolor pencils to personalize my background. This is what I did this month. I used a page from the Doodles & Dashe A5 Planner Inserts and a dashboard. As the pages already have a lot of decorations, I did minimal decoration: some washi tape on the side, the watercolor background, and some clear stickers, plus alphas for the title.
I really love the design of the page with all those doodles, so with only 2 clear stickers from stickers kits and a bit of color with my watercolors pencils, the page is done. I will just need to add my writing!
I love the ink dashes in the Doodles & Dashes Collection, and that's why I love adding mine to my gratitude pages. Here, I just made the blue and pink spots and I love how they are a perfect match with spots that were already on the dashboard. The process is really simple: I rub the pencil on an acrylic pad (used for stamping). Then I add a spray of water, and I press the block on my page. I just need to be careful to let the first color dry before adding another and to let all dry before adding anything else. To finish my page, I added a title with alphas stickers from the Doodles and Dashes Planner Add-On Kit and Doodles & Dashes Daisy Add-On Sticker Kit."
Odessa used this collection to add a little whimsy to her pocket pages.
"The Doodles & Dashes Collection is so cute! They have a really fun sketchbook feel to them and I brought a lot of that into my pocket page memory-keeping layout this week. I started with some photos and a few more simple patterned cards from the Doodles and Dashes Modern Memory Keeping Kit and worked from there!
I used a few different things to incorporate those cute elements and bring them into my photos and journal cards here. I used a lot of rub-ons from the Doodles and Dashes Traveler's Notebook Memory Keeping Kit to give a drawn-on look to the photos. I also used those super cute plus sign puffy stickers from the Modern Memory Keeping Kit as an edge to one photo along with some sparkly enamel dots. And one of those adorable die-cut frames!
I also used the rub ons with the chipboard on the two different patterned journal cards to give them a little excitement. Deciding to use the hand-drawn elements of the Doodles & Dashes Collection made this page so easy to put together."
Tanti shows us that the Memory Keeping Kits are great for planners and journals, too.
I love the design of the Doodles & Dashes Collection so much. It’s so pretty and this month there are some fun items in the kits that I can use to make my planner prettier.
I love using puffy stickers from the Doodles and Dashes Modern Memory Keeping Kit to create some cute little charms to decorate my planner and journal spread just like with this cute little flower charm. I stuck the puffy sticker onto a piece of patterned paper and fussy cut it. Then I pierced a hole using a piercer, put the thread through the hole, and attached it to my calendar top out.
The cute flower stamp from the Modern Memory Keeping Kitis just perfect to separate my weekend days.
This month we have some rub ons in the Modern Memory Keeping Kit and in the Doodles and Dashes Planner Add-On Kit. Rub ons are so fun to use and perfect to add some pretty accents on your planner and journal spread. This is how I used them on my monthly spread.
