Valentine's Day Scrapbook

The new year has come and gone already, and that means that it’s time to gear up for the next major holiday – Valentine’s Day! And yes, we know that Christmas and New Year’s JUST finished, but when it comes to making a scrapbook, you need all the time you can get to make the best scrapbook you possibly can to give to that special someone for Valentine’s Day!

Usually, people give flowers and candy to their loved ones or take them out to a movie or a fancy dinner date on Valentine’s Day, which is all lovely and good, but man, it’s cliché. Why not do something a bit unconventional, something that will last forever, something that will say “I love you” or “You mean more to me than you could ever know”? Make a scrapbook for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day!

Ahh, but where should you start? You’ve got a huge collection of pictures of the two of you, some paper, lots of markers and utensils, but no direction! What will you do?

That’s easy. First of all, be sure to have a Board Book album on hand. Don’t have one? Order one! It’s super easy to do; just go to our website at and order online or call us at 1-800-506-9683 to get your very own album! You have a nice selection of colors, and each album holds up to 20 4”x6” pictures, along with one 4”x5” photo for the front cover. The pages are sturdy and kid-friendly, too, in case any little ones get their hands on the photo album.

Now that you have the photo album, you need to pick the direction you want your scrapbook to go and just go with it. Make a plan of attack if you need to. You can simply make a Valentine’s scrapbook that features you and your love together at different times and different places throughout your relationship. Be sure to feature other fun things like ticket stubs to events you’ve attended together, rose petals from your first bouquet that you shared, cards, stories, letters you’ve written one another, and favorite song lists or lyrics in your scrapbook!

If you don’t mind that your significant other sees or knows what you’re making for him or her, ask that person to help you with the creative process! You can have input on which pictures and objects to use, and you can also get both sides of the story about a photo or a trip that you both took together. For example, if you include the first picture of you two together, he could mention how he fell head-over-heels in love with you the moment he laid eyes on you, and you could write how you thought he was charming and how he opened his card door for you, and so on!

If you want to make your surprise Valentine’s scrapbook specific, then why not showcase fun vacations or holidays that you and your honey have shared together? Be sure to include lots of pictures of the scenery and the two of you having fun together in your scrapbook! Provide captions underneath or to the sides of your photos and add cute embellishments of your photos.

Do you have kids and want to tell the story of how your parents, grandparents, or even your great-grandparents met and how deeply they fell in love and stayed in love? Well, why not make a scrapbook for that? If you have any pictures of your ancestors together in their youth (for example, a photo of your grandparents’ wedding), use them in a love-story album! Your whole family can see how their elders met and grew to be crazy about each other, and it would be a heartwarming story to read every single time, let alone a good way to remember their stories.

Be sure to get a head start on your album! Call us today at 1-800-506-9683 or visit our website at to get started on your Valentine’s album right away!
