It’s safe to say this past year didn’t go how anyone planned. Cancelled events, working from home, schooling from home – yikes, it’s no wonder your time for hobbies took a hit.
If you’ve found yourself lacking motivation, worrying about all that lost time or trying to figure out what to scrap next, what if instead you started dipping your toe into the digital scrapbooking waters again with a fun summer project?
Over the course of seven weeks together, we’ll focus on capturing your top ten favorite things about your summer, one page at a time, using all the digital scrapbooking supplies you already love.
Each week of Summer Faves will be broken down into a doable number of pages which is the perfect way to get back into the habit of scrapbooking without stressing out. By the end of class on Friday, August 13th, your Summer Faves album will ready to send off to print.
Just think how awesome it will feel to have a finished album under your belt!
- an exclusive set of 8×8-inch mini album Photoshop templates with everything you need to create a 34 page Summer Faves album
- a 7-week accountability class where I will be scrapbooking my own Summer Faves album right alongside you
- the Faves Project interactive planning guide for tracking your progress
- weekly emails from me with words of encouragement and inspiration
- access to a private community where you can share your progress
As soon as you sign up for Summer Faves 2021, you’ll receive an email with a download link to your Summer Faves 8×8-inch Mini Album templates. Each template file is labeled in page order so the foundation of your album is already planned – no stressing about which page should go where.
One of the hardest parts of creating a multi-page album is planning out how you’re going to get the work done – which is why I do this part for you! On Tuesday, June 29 our 7-week Summer Faves Class will begin. Each week of Summer Faves will be broken down into a doable number of pages so you’re making progress without stressing out. You’ll also get access to The Faves Project interactive planning guide which makes tracking your progress SO easy and motivating. Follow the plan and you’ll have a finished album by the end of class on Friday, August 13.
The best part of following The Faves Project system is that all YOU have to do is show up and scrap your pages – which is the fun part! I also will be scrapbooking my own Summer Faves album alongside you and will be sharing my own progress on my album with you throughout the class. You’ll also have access to our private Faves community where you can share your own progress and help others celebrate theirs – because scrapping with friends is WAY more fun!
Here’s what other Faves Project students have to say about why the Faves are their fave…
The Faves Project is a great way to document those seasonal memories and ensure that the season doesn’t slip away, without taking a lot of time or energy. The templates are easy to complete, with a simple cohesive design that looks great with or without embellishments.
Lynnette, you are a GENIUS. These album planning worksheets are going to completely change the way I digi-scrap! I have a neurotic need to know where I am on the road to finishing an album and these worksheets are totally doing it for me. Seeing those thumbnails go from greyscale to color is almost more satisfying than putting a checkmark on a to-do list.
I love the planning guides for figuring out how the book will come together before I get to the loading it up on the website part.
I’m a visual person and love using the worksheets and seeing the overall plan mapped out.
I love having that album summarizing the season sitting on the shelf. The graphic-style helps keep the scrapping simple and still gives you creative freedom to dress things up in whatever way makes you happy.
My top three fave things about the Faves: the templates, the group camaraderie and the fact that it’s DOABLE.
Yeah, I’m a Nettio project addict. They are totally do-able and I look forward to working on them.
Who is Summer Faves for?
Summer Faves is for any tech-lovin’ memory keeper who’s interested in creating their very own list-lovin’ summer album. If you love the idea of creating a summer mini album but want something a bit more easy and doable than what you’ve tried in the past, I have confidence Summer Faves is the right solution for you.
Do I need to be a digital scrapbooker to participate in Summer Faves?
Because Summer Faves includes digital scrapbooking templates, you’ll get the most out of it if you are open to hybrid or digital scrapbooking. But new scrapbookers are always welcome!
I’m new to digital scrapbooking, can I still sign up?
Absolutely! The Summer is a great first project if you’re interested in giving digital or hybrid scrapbooking a try. I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you might have along the way.
What digital skills do I need to know to participate?
A basic understanding of Photoshop layers and clipping masks will help but is not required. I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have if you’re new to digital scrapbooking.
What software do I need to use the templates?
You’ll need a program that can handle and manipulate a layered Photoshop (.PSD) file.
Does it matter if I use a Mac or a PC?
Nope! All tech-lovin’ memory keepers are welcome. I’m a Mac user with a strong PC background if it helps.
Will you consider offering your templates in (insert your chosen format) as well?
In order to keep things simple, I will only be offering the Summer Faves templates in Photoshop (.PSD) format.
What size are the Summer Faves templates?
The Summer Faves includes thirty four 8×8-inch templates.
How do I print my completed album?
Once you’ve completed your pages in Photoshop, you will save your layouts as flattened JPG images which can then be printed as a photo book through your favorite photo book company or printed as single layouts which can be added into any traditional scrapbooking album.

Help! I signed up but never received an email with my downloads!
