I Heart You Because...

I originally found this idea on Pinterest, but can't seem to find the link for it.  Instead of paying someone for a download printable for it, I decided to make my own.  It was really easy, and I love it!!
  1. Take an old frame that you like.  I used a black 5" x 7" frame that we had laying around.
  2. Cut a piece of cardstock (any colour/print you like) to fit the frame.  I used light blue solid.
  3. Use the Jubilee Cricut Cartridge to cut out the letters.  The "LOVE♥YOU" is it's own character on this cartridge.  The "I" and the "because" were all done as individual letters.
  4. Glue the wording onto the cardstock.  Make sure to put a blank line too!
  5. Put the glued together cardstock in the frame behind the glass.
  6. Hang where desired.  I hung ours on the wall in the entrance to our bedroom.
  7. Use a dry erase marker to write your love notes!  They easily wipe away to be replaced with new notes for your loved ones.  (The dry erase marker has a velcro on one side so we can stick it to the wall right next to the frame.)
It is SO nice to have this!  I catch myself glancing at it multiple times a day, waiting to see what new thing my husband loves about me.  He wrote the above note to me when I first put it on the wall.  :)  And I learn little and big things that he notices about me on a regular basis.  

Plus, what a blessing it is to be able to show my husband I love him too.  I can show him I've noticed when he does the dishes, or let him know how proud I am of him in his work, or thank him for leading our family spiritually. 

It is SO encouraging! We absolutely love it.  And I know you will too!
