Valentine’s Day is all about romance, love, and friendship. It may not be a common photo opportunity, but with or without a photo, there are still plenty of ideas for Valentine’s Day scrapbooking. Remember this February 14th and that special someone you asked to be yours with these Valentine’s Day scrapbook page tips.

1. Find a photo – Just because you don’t have a photo taken on February 14 doesn’t mean you can’t include photos in your Valentine’s design. Find a photo of you and your love from another occasion to solve that problem. You can go back as far as you like to get a photo of the two of you together, maybe even a wedding photo.

2. Choose a page title: Need help creating a Valentine’s Day themed title? Here are some suggestions:

  • As I love you?
  • I love you
  • I want to kiss you all
  • Crazy Little Thing Called Love
  • My heart Belongs to you
  • This Kiss
  • Always and Forever
  • high school sweethearts
  • soulmates
  • be mine

3. Choose Romantic Page Elements: The obvious choices for your page elements are hearts and roses, but check out your other scrapbooking supplies for embellishments that make you think of romance. For example, use white lace, a pink satin ribbon, red bows, or Victorian accents.

4. Add color: Red is the color of the day for Valentine’s Day, but too much red on your page can overpower your focal point. Use red as an accent and try adding more white and pink to your design.

5. Add your Valentine’s Day cards: Cards are decorative elements of the page. You can create a pocket on the page to add the cards that were given to each other. This way they can be removed so you can read the feelings inside.

6. Write Love Letters: Journaling is just as important on a Valentine’s layout as it is on any other scrapbook page. Use the page title ideas listed above to brainstorm journal writing ideas. You can also include handwritten love letters from any time of the year or the past.

7. Add a love poem – If you want a quick way to add a journal, use a love poem or quote on your page. It’s easy to find many options for poems and quotes by doing an Internet search for “romantic poems.”

8. Photograph Valentine’s Day gifts: Include a photo of the box of chocolates or roses you received and make a scrapbook of the gift card. If you had a nice dinner out, put a photo of the restaurant on your page and don’t forget to write in a journal what everyone ordered for dinner.

9. Remember the kids: Kids celebrate Valentine’s Day too. Include cards exchanged from schoolmates on a special page for your children. Record their feelings about this holiday and what it means to them.

10. Dedicate a Page to Your Valentine: Instead of focusing on the couple, use a page layout to express all the reasons you love them.

With a little creativity, you can create a beautiful Valentine’s Day page layout even if you don’t have a photo from that day. You don’t even need special supplies. You probably already have decorations with a romantic theme. Add some white and pink cardstock and some red letters, and you have everything you need to make a Valentine’s Day scrapbook page.
