I first came across Close to My Heart products at a crop I attended years ago. It was seriously love at first site. They are beautiful designs and versatile products that get better and better every year.

I own tons of their stamps and their Cricut cartridges but I had never tried one of their scrapbook kits until now. Oh my gosh! They are awesome and so easy to use. They even give you the page sleeves!

These are the perfect kits for busy moms who can only squeeze in scrapbooking here and there. (Although you should totally ready How to Get Your Free Time Back as a SAHM.) Because you are following step-by-step instructions, you can easily come back to the project later and not forget what you were designing.

Before we get to the tutorial, I want you to know that this one is a little different than normal. Your kit actually comes with step-by-step instructions. Instead of writing out all of these steps, I’m going to give you an abridged version with my tips and tricks to make it easier.

Some of the instructions are a little unclear and some I felt were in the wrong order. The instructions will absolutely work to get your beautiful scrapbook made. That’s totally one of the perks of Close to My Heart products. They have so many products that make your life easier and these kits are no exception.

Valentine Scrapbook Materials

The very first step is to open your kit and get everything organized.

Then you want to get all of your elements cut out.

Step 3

Once you have all of your elements ready, you also want to cut out the papers as instructed. You can also label these for easier reference later.

Step 4

Next, make your first page of your Valentine scrapbook. Again, because the kit comes with instructions, I’m not including the step-by-step for each page. However, you can see a photo of each step of page creation above the steps for every page except the first.

Tips and Tricks

The instructions tell you to put on Shimmer Trim after adding embellishments… while you can do this, if you’re trying to make it look like the pictures, put it on a step or 2 earlier.

One really cool element that I LOVE is that the sequins come with adhesive on them! This is so convenient.

As I said above, one downfall is that is a lot of cutting upfront. Don’t skip this step, though. It makes the entire assembly so much easier when each element is ready to go before starting.

 

After you’ve finished your easy Valentine scrapbook, there are still plenty of materials leftover to make some gorgeous cards. This is perfect if you’re plan to give the scrapbook as a gift.
