Happy Sweet Shoppe Saturday everyone! This week’s release heralds month number three of one of my absolute FAVE (pun-intended) scrapbooking projects: the Monthly Faves!
For those new to Nettio Designs & the Faves, my Monthly Faves project is a year-long scrapbooking project where each month you scrapbook one layout documenting your top-ten favorite things from that month. Your faves can be anything: events, food, tv shows, technology, clothing – the sky’s the limit!
I’ve done my Monthly Faves project twice before, once in 2009 & again in 2011 and I can’t even tell you how much fun it is to look back on those layouts and see what’s changed and what’s stayed the same. It’s like a mini time-capsule of your favorite things from way-back-when.
I’ve written before about why I believe everyone should scrap a Faves layout but here’s the cliff-notes version:
Because scrapbooking lists is fun
Because you don’t remember nearly as much as you swear you do
Because it captures an easy snapshot of your life at the moment
Because it’s the easiest All About Me layout you’ll ever do. Seriously.
And this year I want to make it even easier for you to creatively capture your faves. So I’ve changed the way I release my Monthly Faves digital scrapbooking templates.
Rather than saving them up and releasing them in a multi-month pack at once, this year on the last(ish) Saturday of every month, I’ll be releasing that month’s Faves layout as a new Sweet Single template. Which should give you plenty of time to capture your Faves for that month before the new month arrives.
Which brings me to this week’s release…
This week’s release is the second FAVE-O-RITES Sweet Single digital scrapbooking template of the year, FAVE-O-RITES 2013: March Faves. It features room for one photo of your lovely smiling face, your top 10 faves for this month and a bold patterned paper-lovin’ sunburst design.
Here’s a bigger look at my 2013 Mar Faves layout that inspired this template. As you can see, my faves list is super random, which is exactly what I love! It’s not something you have to stress out over: make a list of 10 things, scrap it and boom, you’ve captured an easy snapshot of YOU in your scrapbooks. Just think how much fun it’ll be for you or your kids & grandkids to look back on one day!
Team Awesome Inspiration
Of course my team had a ton of fun this month scrapbooking their own take on the Mar Faves:
