The Faves Project: Digital Scrapbooking

The Faves Project by Nettio Designs is something I first participated in back in 2015. I absolutely loved it! If you are a digital scrapbooker, you might know what I’m talking about, but if not, let me fill you in. First, if you aren’t sure what digital scrapbooking is, scroll down through this post and you’ll have a pretty good idea. It’s kind of like paper scrapbooking, but you do it all on the computer instead. I love it because I avoid all messiness that way (well, except on my hard drive!) The premise of the Faves Project is that each month, Lynette (of Nettio Designs) sends you 1 digital template for that month’s faves page. You take that template and create a page with a photo of you along with a list of 10 of your favorite things. It’s absolutely wonderful! They are so fun to make, but the part I love most is being able to look back to the pages from the past and being reminded of my then favorite things.

Here’s my first page of 2017, just scrapped last night!

I had done a couple of faves layouts on my own before joining the 2015 Faves Project, but I love the structure of getting a new template delivered to me each month to remind me to get it done, plus it’s super fun because there’s a Facebook group just for the members to share their pages and chat! Plus, Nettio’s templates are the absolute best. I’ve always loved them. Last week I got an email from Nettio Designs letting me know it was that time again (she runs the Faves Project once every other year)! Yayyyyyy! I signed up yesterday and promptly completed my January faves page for 2017. SO exciting!

 

I was looking through my past faves layouts, and I just have so much fun perusing them, so I thought you guys might enjoy taking a look too. Also, this post is just in time for you guys if you didn’t know about the Faves Project, but want to get in on it for 2017 at a discount price. She has a deal going just through tonight (2/24/2017) to get the whole year for $29. I’m NOT getting paid for this post or in any way compensated – I just absolutely LOVE the project and thought some of you may not know about it!!

Anyway, back to the point!  First, I want to show you a couple pages I made before I joined the Faves Project.  I had seen other peoples’ faves layouts, but I hadn’t yet joined the club!

These first 2 are faves pages I did for my girls way back in 2011!

This page here is the first faves page I did for myself back in 2012.  That’s the extent of my pre- Faves Project faves pages.

Here are the pages I did of myself for the 2015 Faves Project.  As you can see, I didn’t get the whole year done sadly, but I’m okay with that … I guess.

So fun, right?  I just love looking through what my faves were.  It’s crazy, but even from last year I don’t remember a lot of them.

Another thing I did while doing the Faves Project in 2015 was making some pages for my kids.  This was only a couple months where I went crazy and wanted to do one for everyone, so maybe that’s why I didn’t get my own pages done!  But I’m happy to have these too.  As you can see, in January I made one for all 5 of the kiddos, and in February only 2.  🙂

Well, that’s it for my show and tell today!  Just a fun post.  I hope it tempts you into playing along with the 2017 Faves Project because I’d love you to play along!!

Have you ever done a faves layout or participated in a Faves Project?  I’d love to see your pages – feel free to tag me on Twitter or IG if you do one!
