Love Notes

Sym says, KAYA!

This layout is composed of letters and notes that my DH gave me when we were still single. I attached the letters to the cardstock without permanently adhering them because some of them also have notes written at the back. I planned the layout such that I can still pull them out and read them whenever I want.

The journaling are the love letters themselves as shown below.

Materials Used:
Daisy D's papers for the background, buttons from Mitch Sy, ribbons from Tutuban Center, other papers from Nina, Rob and Bob paper for the pink and yellow flowers, Prima flower.

Techniques Used:
I used the Basic Grey Notch and Die Tool to create notches that would anchor my notes. Brads also served the same purpose. I did not glue the letters to the base paper so I can pull and read them whenever I feel like it.

About ME:
I'm Symbelly, 30 y/o, wife to supportive hubby Sherwin, and mother to 2 beautiful children, Vien 5 and Will 2. I'm a working mom who loves scrapbooking. It lets me have a world of my own... my own rules, my own taste, just pleasing my own, boss of my own. Yeah! I love my scrapbook friends EBs and mini-EBs. They add color and love to my life. Makes me realize I'm not alone, that I've got lots of friends. Visit me at

Sym, when I saw you pull out the notes and letters one by one, I was like, WOW! Galing how you planned it that way. Me, I'm glue-happy so am afraid to even dare to scrap my DH's letters and poems to me.

Sym, nainggit naman ako dito! kasi i lost our love letters when we moved house...huhuhu...

and since i had the opportunity to see this one in person, let me tell you again that thinking up those closures and hoop-ups is admirable. grabe!...lahat natatangal at flip-able. truly a labor of love!
