A Romantic Minibook Idea

Kiss 1

This is one of my favorite mini-books. I got to pull together beautiful scrapbooking supplies, create rich layers of paint, and share in one place a bunch of the wonderful things Izzy does for me every day.

Kiss 9

Kiss 6

Kiss 5

Some Romantic Supplies:
Tim Holtz Caged Bird and Heart Wings die cuts with Grungeboard. Tim Holtz metal Charm Adornments, Word Sticks, and Lace Chain, and Hitch Fastener.

Kiss Paint Cloeup

Gorgeous Contrast and Layers:
I love the contrast of having paper on one side of the page, and the layers of paint and texture underneath all that shine! I shared step by step how to do this in Paperclipping #163 – Layer and Texture with Color.

A Simple System:
I have two videos sharing my approaches for simple and fast mini-booking, which still allows for intricate layers of products. I assembled my Kiss minibook using the concepts in these videos:

  • Task Batch Minibooking – Paperclipping #150
  • Easier Intricate Minibooks – Paperclipping #174

If you’ve signed up to receive my emails, you’ve probably gotten the Task Batch Minibooking video. If you just signed up within the last few days you’ll get it soon!

Gratitude for Good Things:

What does your significant other like to do for you to make you happy? Remind yourself of the good you have and show gratitude to him or her with a mini-book or layout!

    When I saw this last year it totally inspired a similar album. I’ll have to take pics, post it on my blog, and send you a link. Super fun mini album!

  • Yes! I’d love to see it!

    Ha! Took all day, but I finally got the post up. Had to fit it around my college daughter’s schedule, cutting Mr. Handsome’s hair, fixing dinner, you know the drill. Anyhoo, here’s the link. Let me know what you think, k?


  • Just headed over and took a good long look and had a great time! I’m so glad you shared it with me (us)! Your book is beautiful AND it tells a good story about your love. How sweet!
    BTW, that was a good shot and a great angle for Body for Life! :)
