10 Things I Love About You Mini: Olive Edition

Need a quick + meaningful Valentine’s Day gift idea? How about putting together a mini album for your loved one that shares 10 things you love about them! I created this little album for my husband using 3X4 cards from the Project Life Olive Edition Core Kit and I can’t wait to give it to him for Valentine’s Day tomorrow!

Scroll down for a short video sharing more pages from the inside of the album + a link to download the extra digital elements that you’ll need to create your own 10 Things I Love About You mini album!

**Have you heard? The Olive Edition is on sale now through Feb.18th.

Binder Ring, Ribbon scraps
Your Photos sized 3 X 4 inches
Pen for journaling

Using a variety of 3X4 project life cards for journaling + a few photos, I created two page spreads by glueing photos + cards back to back. If you watch the video below it will make more sense how I put the pages together. Then I simply punched a hole in the upper left corner of each page, secured them all with a binder ring and that was it. All I need to do now is add my journaling and it’s done!
I have a bit of an obsession with mini albums {see here and here}. I just can’t help myself! I love how quickly they come together + how itty bitty they are! This bite-sized memory keeping seems to fit better into my busy schedule sometimes and the little bits that I’m able to record when I have a 1/2 hour here or ten minutes there are so worth it! I’m happy to be able to record even a small portion of our story rather than recording nothing at all while waiting for the opportunity to complete those more lofty scrapbook projects.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

    What a fun project! After being married almost 13 years it’s hard to come up with new ideas for gifts for the hubby.

    I found your blog through Delightfully Noted blog and absolutely love it! I spent quite some time last night going through your archives. Love your blog! Heather

    This is such a great idea! I think I’m out of time for making it for Vday, but I know my mom would love this filled with pictures of my little guy for a birthday present. Thank you!

    I have been hemming and hawing about getting a Project Life Binder. What better way to document your life? This looks amazing. I need to get on top of my game and get one!
