As a mom of two boys, I really like scrabooking Valentine’s Day or love-inspired layouts because I can use all of the pink and heart-covered paper that I don’t normally use.
Right now, I am working on my almost-three-year-old’s book from birth through his first birthday. I didn’t have any specific Valentine’s day photos, but I liked the thought of using the phrase, “I Heart You,” so worked with that. It happened that the photos I had lined up to use on his February layout focused on the funny faces he made. Since the funny faces are one of my favorite things that T does, it wasn’t a stretch to combine them. Add the fact that it’s February, and it was a natural fit for using some of my love-themed paper and my heart Washi tape.
I kept the layout simple, trimming and rounding the corners of the photos, rounding the corners of the paper, and trimming the Washi tape into pretty corners. I liked the thought of making the journal space look like a Valentine, so I cut out a big red heart and used Thickers for the title.
Supplies & Tools:
- “Loves Me, Words Can’t Express” cardstock from Imaginisce,
- Pink heart Washi tape from the “Delightful Cotton Candy Set” at Freckled Fawn,
- Pink paper,
- Red Sharpie marker
- American Crafts Thickers in “Hardcover” Red
I would love to see the creative ways you scrapbook love or Valentine’s Day!
Here is the super easy, and very heart-filled, layout!
