The ABC’s of Us!


Corrie - ABC's of Us - Pinterest Pic

Who wants to get an early start on preparing a Valentine’s Day gift?  Today we have a fun, meaningful gift idea!  The name of this gift idea is called, “The ABC’s of Us.”  For each letter of the alphabet, you get to write a fun memory.

For the letter “F” I decided to write about our “First House.” I had a lot of fun remembering and trying to come up with an idea for each letter.

All you have to do is print and cut the letter pages. I then combined the cards with a metal ring.

I am excited to give my husband these fun love notes! I think these notes and his favorite candy will do the trick this Valentine’s Day!  Just for fun, I also printed off an extra set of ABC cards for my husband to give to me.

Our ABC printables were created by a super talented design artist, Alison.

    I’m doing a “Childhood Date” in upcoming months. One of the things I had planned was to do the “ABCs” of us. (Where we think up a memory for each letter together). This will go PERFECT with that. I can’t wait!

    What a sweet and thoughtful gift! I am pinning this and will try and make it for hubby. I am a new Twitter follower visiting from Creations by Kara. Vicky from Mess For Less

  17. Shelbie says:

    This is a great idea! I think I’ll try it out this Valentine’s Day. Although I’m not sure what I could use for the more difficult letters: Q, X, Z, etc.

    • Corie corie says:

      Hey Shelbie! You know it is amazing, once you get writing, you will get quite creative even with the QXZ letters. For X, you could do something like: I am eXcited when you come home each evening, etc.

  18. Kelsey Booth says:

    Did you laminate your cards? If so, can you wipe off your answers or did you just write them prior to laminating? Thanks! I love this idea :)

  19. Holly says:

    Just curious, what did you print them on? And did you just use a Sharpie?
    I wonder if you can just have these printed off at a kinko’s….

    • Corie corie says:

      Hey! I actually printed them on photo paper. Yes, I used a Sharpie. I bet you could print the at Kinko’s if you wanted to save on ink. I hope that helps!

  20. Kelly says:

    This is such a super cute and sweet idea! What kinda of paper did you use? Thank you!

  21. Miranda says:

    I’m currently working on my own version. I absolutely loved the idea. I just linked you on my blog. Thanks for sharing!

  22. Kelly says:

    I have no idea what I’m doing. 😉 How do I print the cards to be a larger size? Any tips? Yours look larger than what I just printed out. Thank you!

  23. Katie says:

    I of course waited until the last second to figure out something sweet to do for the hubs. Found this and it’s perfect!

  24. Pam says:

    I did this for my husband for Valentines day. It was so fun and relationship affirming to make that I think of it as a gift to both of us. Thanks for such a great personal Valentines Day idea. We both got a lot out of it!
