If you are familiar with us, you know that we love year in review pages, but we also have fallen in love with month and week in review layouts too!

For today's post, we gathered some of our favorite week and month review scrapbook pages that you will love. Plus we share our top five reasons for creating these type of pages. After you're finished reading, you'll probably want to start going through your photo stash - these pages are just so fun to create!

Keep scrolling to see all five reasons to make review pages:

# 1 - These Pages Make You Happy


"January 2022" by Paije Potter - Pattern #427

There is something about a review layout that puts a smile on your face every time you see it!

Many of your memories from that particular week or month are all in one spot. So, you're able to see multiple moments of time spent with family, friends, or at home. These pages bring us much joy since we get to review all sorts of happy times that took place.

If you're like us, you'll want to flip to these pages over and over in your album to see the good moments.

#2 - Document Everyday Life


"A Regular Week" by Jodi Benson

Every scrapbooker makes pages of all the big events and trips, but we don't usually make room for the everyday.

Another reason to love review layouts is because you can document your day to day life. We love this layout showing a winter week in January and all the sweet moments. The memories made at home can easily be forgotten, but a week in review layout revives those seemingly small moments.

While everyday photos may appear bland on your phone or computer - placing them on a layout makes each one seem more beautiful!

#3 - You Can Use Your Random Photos


"August 2014" by Paije Potter

Maybe you're like us and have a collection of random photos - such as the delicious cookies your neighbor gave you, the squirrel in your backyard, or that adorable plate you found at the store.

We don't necessarily want to dedicate an entire 12x12 layout to these photos, so they just sit on our phone or desktop indefinitely. But, a month or week in review layout makes room for your random photos and we love that! Now all of them will have a place in your album.

Any scrapbooker wants to make sure they document everything they can - even those random or unexpected moments!

This Layout Features: 12x12 Sandstone Grid Paper, Summertime Blocks Free Download, and the Basic Die Bundle.

#4 - Flexibility of Colors and Theme


"Week in January" by Paije Potter - Pattern #339

One of the fun parts about making a week or month in review layout is you can choose any colors or pattern paper you want since there isn't a particular theme.

If you have a pattern paper in your stash you haven't used yet, this might be a great opportunity. Or use a color scheme you have been wanting to try! Although this might be fun for some, this might be overwhelming for you - so here are a few ideas:

  • Choose Colors and Paper based on the season (or holiday if applicable)
  • Choose a pattern paper or embellishment and use card-stock that coordinates
  • Pick 3-4 colors next to each other on the color wheel
  • Choose a Grid Paper color first, and then pick coordinating paper.

#5 - The Feeling of Satisfaction


"Making the Most of March" by Tami Potter

Have you gotten to the end of the month or week, and feel like you didn't do very much or take enough photos?

We often feel like this, especially if it wasn't very eventful. But, we're surprised every time we make a review layout, and find that we did more than it seemed! This brings us a feeling of satisfaction and we want you to experience this too.

If you don't think you'll have enough photos for a review page, check your stash - you might be amazed that you have the right amount for a layout!

This Layout Features: 12x12 White Grid Paper and the Basic Die Bundle.
