D+N Valentine’s Day Mini

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all having a warm a snuggly Friday. Here in California we are expecting a huge rainstorm this weekend so I’m excited to grab myself a warm cup of coffee and sit at my desk all weekend long! 

Today I am here to share with you a fun Valentine’s Day Mini Album I made for my husband. I really wanted to come here and share this on V-Day but since my son’s birthday is on V-Day (so cute right?!) you can imagine just how busy I was and my main focus was on celebrating a birthday more than Valentine’s Day, haha.

So let me start of by saying that I almost didn’t share this project at all. At the beginning of this month my husband and I hit a very rough bump in our marriage and split for a few weeks. It was a very difficult time and I was devastated and terrified that I had lost the love of my life for ever. Through talking and sacrifices on both our ends we have decided that we are not going to give up on our marriage just yet. 

So that’s just a quick way of telling you why I hadn’t shared this project. Nevertheless, I’m super excited to be sharing it with you today because I stared it as soon as I received my February Gossamer Blue kits and I was working on it from the bottom of my heart, for my love. 

I used the Main Kit for this whole project and I loved using the fun patterns and bold colors from the Fancy Pants collection. 

I also decided that I was going to do stitching galore since I had also just gotten my sewing machine. I have been in love with that thing! Didn’t I tell you I was gonna use it every time? Haha! 

On the inside I used very little embellishments but used the word phrase stickers included in the kit to add the message I wanted to come across each page. On top of each page I also included some of my favorite and most romantic photos I could find of him and I. 

So here are the closeups for you to enjoy. I figured leaving them all ’til the end would be best to let you enjoy it all at once. I hope you love it!

I finished off my mini with a handmade yellow Tassel using some bakers twine from my stash and also added a super cute “S.W.A.K.” ephemera piece to the back of the mini. The perfect touch to finish it off! 

I am so happy that I was able to finish the mini and also to share with you all! It was one of the projects I was most excited to be making with my February Gossamer Blue kits so off the to my mini’s collection basket it goes!
