Valentine's Day Love Album (Monika Wright)

We thought that this was a perfect Valentine's Day gift to show you! Monika Wright - one of our design team members and owner of I Love It All  - created this album for her husband and we thought it was such a great idea to show you...read on to see how Monika shares how to create one yourself (or you can even just purchase one from Monika's shop too)!
This little mini-album was an Anniversary gift to my husband last year. But, I thought it would be such a nice Valentine's Day gift, also, don't you? So, I thought I would share this with you. I  also have it available for purchase in my Etsy shop, but you could easily recreate this yourself using your word processing program.

If you don't have a Bind-it-All, just punch holes and thread the Maraschino baker's twine that I used to embellish the front cover through the holes. Or, you could even use book binder rings.
Here are a few pages from my album, just to give you an idea of how simple, but effective, a few words can be.

Simple. Easy. But, oh so worthwhile. It takes a little thought for a few of the letters, but in the end it is a priceless gift you'll be creating for your Sweetie.
Thanks for letting me share this project with you. You might not know this, but I just love mini-albums, they're my favorite project to create! If you'd like to see more samples of mini-albums I've made, click here.

Have Fun and Craft On!



  1. oh my goodness, this is ridiculously adorable! I may just have to borrow this idea and make one for my hubby :D Thanks for the inspiration!!

  2. This is sooo awesome!! I love it!! Thanks for sharing!! :)


  3. Love this!!! I got my twine today in the mail love it!! Can't wait to use it on so many projects!

  4. I love this so much! Any chance you would be willing to share more of the alphabet with us?

  5. What a wonderful idea! I so need to do this for no reason at all! <3

  6. Thank you for a really cool Valentines Day Blog. I found the gift ideas given here very interesting.

  7. Such a wonderful wonderful idea

  8. Hi,I just wanted to let you know that this post was featured in my 2012 Valentine's Day Guide! Seen here: http://www.singingthroughtherain.net/2012/01/2012-valentines-day-guide.html

  9. I think this is so creative and so personal. I just wondered... how big is it? id like to make one for my husband to to put in his cargo pocket of his uniform (hes headed to Afghanistan) it looks to me this might be a good size. also, did you use just regular card stock for the paper and for the covers?

    1. I just used a small sketch pad with the coils already installed and it fit in his ACU cargo pocket perfectly. I made mine as a photo flip book. He lived it and took it on most of his missions he went out on.

  10. I am in love with this and I can not wait to try to make one for my love. Thank you so much for sharing.


  11. Does anyone know what size paper to use? I love this idea and really want to make it but not sure on the paper size...

    1. I'm in the process of making one with a spiral bound booklet of index cards. You could basically use any size notebook or sketchbook you wanted.

  12. I can't think of a Z... any suggestions?

  13. ZOO.. The place where we feel like we live in.

  14. You have done a amazing job with you website.
    valentine chocholate

  15. How do you print the letters with the sketchbook pages??? I want to make this so badly but I can't figure out how to do that especially one that has the coils already bound

  16. What did you use for Z by chance?? I can't come up with anything great.

  17. I found this on pinterest and thought it was such a cute idea! I am in the process of making it for my boyfriend :) . I used zanious for Z. As in the Zanious times we have shared

  22. I really want to make this but theres just one thing I don't understand. How do you get the letters on the paper? Did you print it off, if so how? Or did you buy paper already like that?

    1. This mini book is available for purchase in my Etsy shop here:


      but you could certainly DIY one with scrapbooking supplies!

      Have fun,

  23. Need help with "Q"...any suggestions?

    1. You make me feel like a queen?

    2. My man and I are both really quirky and it wouldn't be the same if we weren't. Hopefully the two of you are quirky!

  24. I bought a spiral book of notecards at Dollar General...I used scrapbook letters for the letters.

  25. I thought about buying the rub-on alphabet letters for scrapbooking for the alphabet :)

    Also, "Q" could be "quiet time together"

  26. I got this for my husband for Valentine's Day and he absolutely loved it! He thought it was the sweetest thing ever and was very touched! He's like, "I'm keeping this forever!" haha. Needless to say, it was a success. So thank you!!

  83. Magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, Olalude Abija. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
    I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend Abija for any kind of help you want in life. his email address is: spirituallighthealing101@live.com

  84. When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn't have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband's job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr.Azonto spell he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there! This was really a miracle for us, thank you . azontotemple@yahoo.com spell from the bottom of my heart!
