Who remember making a mixtape? I remember it very well. When I first saw the "Love Notes" Collection, I was drawn to the cute little cassette tapes right away. It reminded me of my high school days. I grew up listening to the radio and trying to record the song that was playing in my cassette tape. You have to remember that I was in high school and recording songs in my cassette is a lot cheaper than buying an album.
 I had so many emotions going through my mind while creating my Valentine's Planner Set Up. I was also reminiscing so many memories. I chose the 12x12 cardstock with the colorful mini hearts. I then added washi tapes on the top and bottom border.
 I played around with the odds & ends since you have so many to choose from. I knew from the start that I wanted to use the cassette tapes doodle pops and the rest just came into place.
 I folded the hearts to give it that 3D effect. I also added hearts and music notes sprinkles. There's no right or wrong way to decorate your front page, just have fun with it.
 I stuffed my planner pockets with more odds & ends, playing with the pieces until I found the ones I want to use. I hope you can see the "our Song" is the main focal point, which goes very well with the theme I was aiming for.
Here is my "before the pen" weekly layout. I haven't decided if I want to use it for memory keeping or to write love letters to my husband every day for the month of February. I think love letters is very romantic and very sweet.
 You can see that I placed more cassette tapes and music notes stickers throughout my layout.
 I used the pink bubblegum teensy type stickers to add the days.
Thank you for stopping by. Stay tune to my next blog to find out what I have decided to use my weeks for the month of February.
