Hi everyone, Kim Watson here with with a cool gift idea to share. I know you are going to love it!

Motivated by my brothers recent engagement & up-and-coming wedding, I decided to make the happy couple a Love Journal, and what better collection to use for this, than the gorgeous Sweet Nothings collection. The thought behind it, was to create a journal for them to capture their own thoughts & memories. I scattered a few photographs throughout it to kickstart their process.

I visited Sim’s Facebook page & downloaded a selection of photographs from her feed, them printed them out, changing them to black & white for continuity given they are from different events. Hand drawn journal lines add a spot for them to journal about the events shown in the photos. Leaving ‘white’ space allows them room to add anything extra they feel is special enough to add to the album.

The ephemera with Parisian motifs are perfect for their recent trip to France. Again I added journal lines for personalization. The right hand page has a little prompt to encourage them to add extra photos and memorabilia.

The thin Puffy Sticker font from the Sweet Nothings collection, is perfect to add appropriate titles throughout the journal.

The backs of the patterned paper have gorgeous bright colored plain papers…look how striking this spread is?

More blank pages will allow them to add more photos of their journey, as their wedding day approaches.

Perfect, HAPPY products, for the perfect engagement gift….I cannot wait to get this Love Journal into the mail for them to enjoy. I hope they love it as much as loved putting it together.
