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. 
Scroll down for more details!!


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!
