DIY Love Journal Pages Detail

I absolutely love the bright colors and design elements included with this printable bundle!

How to Create this DIY Love Journal for Him:

Recording your story doesn’t have to be tedious or time-consuming.  And, you don’t need to have a background in scrapbooking or graphic design to pull everything together.  Nope!  With our printable I Love Us book, it’s all done for you!  We’ve taken all the guesswork out of crafting a unique keepsake celebrating your relationship.

DIY Love Journal Binder

To get started, you will need pens, scissors, glue, a 1-inch binder, and several cute photos of you and your sweetie. If you want to keep your pages beautifully preserved for years to come, you might consider placing them in page protectors.  Erin included not just 1 gorgeous cover, back, and spine designs, but 2!  You get to take your pick.

DIY Love Journal Pages

After you’ve placed your pages in the binder, it’s time to start journaling!  Our DIY love book takes the stress out of trying to come up with the perfect thing to say.  Forget writer’s block!  Our pages of journaling prompts will help guide you as you record the meaningful moments, feelings, and memories of your marriage.  You will be documenting:

  • How You Met
  • The What, When, Where, Who of a Special Event
  • Favorite New Years and Anniversary Memories
  • 20 Things You Love About Him
  • Favorite Activities
  • Just Because Trivia
  • And… so much more!

DIY Love Journal Photo Pages

Once your journaling is complete, continue to personalize your DIY love book with treasured photos from your relationship.  Erin created several pages of photo designs in unique sizes and layouts.  The pairing of photos and your unique voice, as heard through the journaling prompts, will truly bring this DIY gift to life!

DIY Love Journal Photo Frames

The last step is adding photo embellishments to the pages.  The ribbon banners serve as perfect caption placeholders to remind your spouse of shared times together.  Don’t you love the cute arrows and LOVE graphics?!

We bet your hubby will love this walk down memory lane!  He will be amazed at all the care and effort that you took to create a one-of-a-kind gift for him.


Throughout the love journal, Erin included 5 gorgeous love quote designs.  These beautiful images are one of my FAVORITE parts- they are such inspiring visual reminders of the power of love.  Erin was kind enough to translate these quotes into art prints as a SPECIAL BONUS for our readers!  Yep, that’s right- we’ve included a special section of 8×10 and 5×7 prints featuring all 5 of the gorgeous quotes captured in the book!

  2. Candice,
    I want to compliment such a great idea! Things like this help keep marriages strong.
    I am a font crazed girl and I couldn’t help but notice the one you used to sign your name (with the heart).
    Can you share the place you found this adorable lettering? I don’t have a blog or a website so I’d only be using at home or maybe church stuff! Thanks!

  3. I absolutely love this idea! It seems I always find the most adorable anniversary ideas right after my anniversary (last week). I had to wait the whole lady year to give my hubby the “exploding love box” lol!

  4. This turned out SOOOO cute! I love the bright vibrant colors! It looks SO great in that blue binder! And looooove the printable quotes we can frame! Love, love, love!!! XOXO
