A Lil' Love

For Valentine's Day I made this lil' book of love for my boyfriend. I used the tutorial from Tim Holtz on his blog at It's made from one double sided piece of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper. I used a paper from the Je t'adore collection by Making Memories.

This big, black flower is actually left-over from the boutinairres, corsages, and bouquets that I made for my daughter's recent marriage. The tag is made using a Tim Holtz coupon stamp.

The text is a Dream definition stamp. In the pocket is a coupon (another Tim Holtz stamp) good for an atomic clock. He's been wanting a new clock for awhile. The coupon reads, "Tick-Tock...You get a new clock!"

This tab is from a set of tabs from Basic Grey. I distressed it with Brushed Courdroy Distress Ink. The date is stamped using a date stamp I purchased from Office Depot.

These are inchies spelling L-O-V-E. They are attached using pop-dots for a bit of dimension.
This pocket had a coupon for dinner at his favorite mexican seafood restuarant.

More Tim tags and left-over embellishment from the wedding.

And this last pocket held a photo of us taken at my daughter's wedding. We're all dressed in our Sunday best!
Try a book for yourself. They're quite addicting!
Have fun!

  16. Hi Denise!

    I just notice on the ATT yahoo group that you live in El Paso. How exciting! I live on the East side - we're going to have to get together and exchange ideas. My husband just finished my scrap room and I'll be getting together with some friends to create on Thursday nights. Here's my email if you'd like to meet.
