Hi, I’m Lynnette Penacho-Jackman. Tech-lovin’ memory keeper and hard-core advocate for telling your personal story.
In 2009 I reached a point with my scrapbooking where I was ready for something new. A new challenge. A new idea. I loved the layouts I’d created but I felt like my albums lacked a cohesive story and at times, they didn’t feel like me.
The rules were simple:
- My list had to include exactly ten items – no more, no less.
- Journaling had to be in list form but numbers were optional.
- The layout title had to include the month followed by the word FAVES.
- Each layout had to include a NEW self-portrait taken during that specific month.
As someone who tended to stress about every word of journaling she wrote like she was being graded on an English essay, a top ten list of my favorite things was the easiest journaling I’d ever done.
I repeated the project again in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 & 2022 each time following the same rules but pushing myself to think outside of my own box with the design.
hands-down some of my most favorite layouts ever.
They added exactly what my scrapbooking albums needed: consistency, a snapshot of my life and a healthy dose of creative design.
telling your personal story doesn’t have to be hard.
scrapbooking yourself feels FUN, Creative, & Easy.
At the end of every month you’ll receive an all-new Monthly Faves-themed 12×12-inch digital scrapbooking template, inspiration and support designed for you to capture your top ten favorite things from that month.
Simply add your own photo, text and digital goodies and by the end of 2023, you’ll have twelve completed Faves layouts of your very own!
- Because a top ten list is one of the easiest forms of journaling you can do. For real.
- Because a list of your personal faves will say more about you than a travel/event/birthday layout ever will.
- Because you don’t remember nearly as much stuff as you think you will. Seriously, I look back at the layouts and am constantly reminded in an “oh YEAH!” kind of way.
- Because scrapbooking with friends is always more fun.
- Because it’s an awesome way to make sure YOU are featured in your scrapbooks too.
The Monthly Faves are an excellent way for someone who has not tried a lot of digital scrapbooking. This process is so quick without a lot of commitment, but the reward is so great after the full year! Twelve pages to practice each and every month!
- 12 all-new Monthly Faves-themed 12×12-inch digital scrapbooking templates, a new one delivered to you at the end of each month
- Access to a our private Faves Project community where you can download your templates at any time, share your layouts and connect with me and other faves-loving scrapbookers
- Monthly email reminders letting you know when each template is ready for you
If you really want to get yourself in your scrapbook in an easy way, remember all the books you loved, movies, etc, capture a good snapshot of life, etc, Faves is really good!
It’s a great way to document the months with little things that you might tend to forget during the year. The picture is something you think about every month, even taking them to be in the faves. I like being able to use some of the many kits that I have purchased.
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.

I love the Faves memory-keeping concept that you have introduced into my life and have been keeping a Faves list every month for the past two years. It’s amazing what a rich document in turns out to be, in terms of all the memories that list will conjure up years later, of life moments both big and small.
It’s a simple, cost effective project that will have meaning in years to come.
