I Love You Because… – September Short Projects


Isn’t Pinterest the best? I love browsing the craft and DIY boards and seeing all the things that creative people have made – it’s so inspiring.

Today’s September Short Project is based on a pin I’ve seen floating around for a long time: this beautiful ‘I love you because…. frame‘ that you can customise with your own sweet messages, shown on Lulabelle Blog. As you can see, her photography and staging skills are slightly better than mine. It’s always good to have something to aspire to….

This project could not be easier, and it looks so lovely. All you need is a photo frame, some paper or fabric for a background and a whiteboard marker. You can either print or write your ‘I love you because…’. I chose to write mine, because I’ll take any chance I get to practice my lettering. It’s yet to have an effect on my messy handwriting, but maybe one day.

I love you because…2I bought my frame for $7 from Kmart, and used some patterned scrapbook paper that I already had in my stash for the background.

I love you because...The best part about this project is getting to think up lovely messages to write – it’s a great way to remind your partner, family or friends that you love them.

    Hi there! It’s Lianne from Lulabelle Blog. I had taken a very long break from blogging and I’m about to start it up again and I saw this sweet post you made showcasing your own super cute message board! I just wanted to drop a line and say thank you for the shout out and I hope you enjoyed the project as much as we did! Have a lovely day!
