A little love for my little Love!

If you are anything like me, you are a hoarder of all things. You just never know when you'll need the screws and brackets from the curtain rods you took down in 2004 or the Christmas wrapping paper used in 1998. When it comes to keepsakes and memory keeping I tend to let things get out of hand- especially when it comes to cards. We have a great tradition of writing long messages in our cards here in the Cloney residence and I can never bare to toss the cards (not to mention good cards store bought or handmade can be expensive these days)! So I decided to make a card actually worthy of keeping and placing in our memory book.

I decided I would use some of my scrap paper and left over Project Life journaling cards to create an interactive card for my little. It took just several minutes and some scraps! 

I started by collecting a few left over bits and pieces and a piece of cardstock big enough when folded in half to cover a few 3x4 journaling cards. I never actually measure anything...just eyeball.

I decorated the cover and inside cover with scraps from Crate Paper's Cool Kid kit and then got to work using my extra journaling cards. Not only are journaling cards great for pocket page style memory keeping, they are also great for notes, banners, cards and more. 

By poking a small hole with my piercer in the top left corner of all my cards and attaching a brad, I was able to layer messages while making the card interactive for my little.

The hardest part was narrowing down my thoughts! 

Adding a few memories will be so much fun to look back on!

This simple and sweet DIY is fun to make, but more importantly- awesome to receive! 

Happy Valentine's Day!
