Paris? Mais oui!

Ready for a little travel adventure? Yes…but only in your imagination? Join the crowd! Just because you aren’t physically going anywhere doesn’t mean that you can’t dream of going somewhere. RIght? So pop on your beret and come along to Paris!

The Eiffel Tower and flower-covered bicycles — two common icons of Paris — now ready-to-ship for your Erin Condren Planners, The Happy Planner, Recollections Planners and…for the first time…there is a mini-kit of small format stickers that will work in your personal-sized planners, traveler’s notebooks, Webster’s Pages and pretty much any place you come up with in your own little travel adventure.

Yes, there is a lot of pink floral going on in this series. And, if you are a no-white-space planner, the dotty dots are just the perfect complement for all the patterned pieces. Because I loved them both, I couldn’t decide which iconic pattern to use for the bottom washi pieces — so I did two options in the a la carte sheets. For the mini-kit I went with the Eiffel Tower — just because it is the most well-known icon of Paris. However, in the a la carte (individual sheets) you can choose the Eiffel Tower or the cute, and of so French, floral-clad bicycle bottom washout designs (ECV-0165-B1 and ECV-0165-B2). Do I have a favorite — honestly, no! Do you?

While the colors in the series are soft and girly — the overall feel of the stickers is not little girlish. After all, that is why I started designing my own stickers back in the dark ages — try as I might, several years ago, I could only find two shops on Etsy that made the style of stickers I love. Sadly, one of the shops is no longer open and the other seems to be doing really well, which makes me really happy. I will admit that my designs are all firmly planted in vintage somewhere — wallpaper and fabrics usually spark my inspiration. They are also designed with that shabby chic toss — with patterns and complementary colors all playing well with each other.

That being said — I can’t wait to see how you decorate your planner or planners with these stickers. If you do post on social media please be sure to #trlplansandprints so that I am sure to find you.

Happy planning! À tout à l’heure!
