Love Notes


List the things you love about someone.
I also wanted to document what I adore about each of my children. For Tyler’s layout, I listed all his wonderful qualities. I included two small photos on my layout, but you don’t have to include any. Just make sure the focus is on the things you love about that special someone. I know Tyler will love to read this page over and over.

Up to the Sky and Back by Maggie Holmes. Supplies Letter stickers: American Crafts (light-pink felt) and Making Memories (chipboard, glitter and dark-pink felt); Crystal flourish: Prima; Heart mirror: Heidi Swapp for Advantus; Epoxy hearts, rhinestones and paint: Making Memories.

Make a visible reminder of your love language.
“I love you up to the sky and back” is part of our family love language. I turned it into a more lasting and visible love note by creating this home-decor piece. It will hang in our playroom, where my children will be reminded of my love every single day.

To achieve the pink “frame” look, simply tape off the edge and paint directly on the canvas.

Love Notes Journal by Maggie Holmes. Supplies Journal: Pottery Barn; Rub-ons: Heidi Grace Designs (swirls) and Luxe Designs (hearts and words); Sticker tape: Heidi Swapp for Advantus (pink dot and stripe) and Making Memories (gray dot); Buttons and rhinestones: Making Memories; Acrylic and sticker hearts and chipboard letters: Heidi Swapp for Advantus; Journaling card: Jenni Bowlin Studio; Pen: American Crafts.

Write love letters to each other.
I’m a very lucky girl. My husband and children often leave me little notes expressing their love for me. But until now, I hadn’t known what to do with them. This love-note journal allows us all to leave sentiments for one another in one cute book! We’ll keep the journal out and available in our home all year long.

You could also use a journal to exchange love notes with distant family members. Imagine Grandma and Grandpa receiving a love-notes journal from you, adding their own messages, and sending it back. This is a sure way to continue the spirit of love throughout the year.
