Historically, Valentine’s Day has been cursed for my spouse and I. Our first Valentine’s date was a bust! We went to a fancy sushi restaurant with really poor service. Turns out…my spouse hates sushi.
The following year, I was laid off from my job which meant that our funds were really low. Year three was an exception – I went into labor with our little girl! However, every year after that has been a crap shoot! So, we decided to stop celebrating Valentine’s Day. No more fancy dates or flowers – we are through!
We take our cursed Valentine’s Days with a grain of salt and lots of humor. And of course, I had to make a scrapbook layout about your misadventures on the day of love!
Check out the process video for this project on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel. Also, photos of this layout are posted below! Enjoy!
For this layout, I used Valentine themed products from Elle’s Studio. I love the all of the blues in this collection…which is a nice departure from red and pink!
Using the Love Is 6×8 paper pad, I positioned 2 x 6 inch strips of pattern paper at the top of the layout and repeated this design at the bottom of the page, this time using 1 x 2 inch strips of pattern paper.
Clusters of hearts were positioned in a visual triangle, adding lots of movement and whimsy. The title was created using the Large Jane Alpha stamp set.
Here’s to another unValentine’s Day! Thanks for stopping by!
