Get Creative with Valentine’s Layouts

Love Day has come and gone, though the memories will linger for a lifetime, especially if you scored a serious sparkler and a marriage proposal on February 14th.  Even if your sweetie didn’t get down on one knee this Valentine’s, you shouldn’t let the holiday go by without crafting at least a single page layout detailing the day’s highlights.  However, rather than employing the same ol’ trite scrapbooking techniques, consider getting a little creative with the following ideas:

Choose a Theme:  So, you didn’t get the five-carat diamond tennis bracelet you had your heart set on for Valentine’s Day.  Surely, there are other goodies you received from your sweetheart that you can document on your page design.  After all, some of the best things in life are free.  So, why not select a theme to display them and title the page with the following:  10 Things I Love About You, Top Reasons I Love You, The ABCs of Love, Top Five Favorite Valentine’s Day Memories, Why Our Love Never Ends.  To spice up your lists go online for free fonts.  You can personalize your Valentine’s Day scrapbook layout using’s, assortment of romantic and whimsical script and block fonts which are accented with tiny hearts.

Love Poems:  If your lover didn’t pen you a romantic prose for Valentine’s Day, don’t fret.  You can easily find original love-themed poems online for free.  There are a slew of websites that feature beautiful love poems that can be featured on your page design.  Poem Source, The Holiday Spot and Poems for Free are all reputable sites that offer poems that highlight romance, friendship and unity.

Song Lyrics:  You’ll be hard pressed to lose that loving feeling when you visit  The popular site features a seemingly endless supply of romantic songs.  You can cut and paste the lyrics to your favorite love songs on your Valentine’s Day layouts or simply use the words as inspiration for your own amorous journaling block entry.
