Hi, today I'm here to show you how to make this darling Valentines scrapbook layout.

I started out with this beautiful scrapbook paper collection by Simple Stories Simple Vintage My Valentine 12x12 Collection Kit. It has a great thickness, and is a double sided paper with beautiful patterns on both sides.

I loved that they included a large mix of flowers, checks, and assorted other papers so that they could be used for other layouts besides just for Valentine's Day projects.

These papers came from the Simple Stories Simple Vintage My Valentine Collectors Essential Kit. This kit included everything you need to complete loads of projects because it includes more than just paper.

This kit includes papers, stickers, chipboard, and washi tape, and all at a great price..

I started my layout with this sheet from that Valentine paper collection.

Then I started adding my photos to the matching Valentines cardstock. This layout features my granddaughter Madison who loves to pose for the camera.

Here is a look at the matching Valentines Basic cardstock paper's that match this collection. They are double sided as well, and also have that wonderful thickness to them.

Next I added my second Valentines photo to that same photo mat.

I like adding two photos to one photo mat occasionally for a different look.

Then I started making my Valentines layout border.

This is the matching Valentines washi tape that I used in the process of making this border. When you purchase this washi tape separately it comes in a package of three, and all of them are gorgeous. FotoBella's online scrapbook store has a huge variety of washi tape for all of your crafting needs.

Next I added another strip of cardstock behind my photos, some matching chipboard, and a title matted in the matching Valentines cardstock. I also added a touch of bling just because I wanted it to be a girly looking layout.

Adding the title cut from the 12 x 12 sheets of pattern paper.

This is the matching Valentines chipboard that I used on my layout.
