Theme – Festivals

A festival is an event ordinarily celebrated by a community and centering on some characteristic aspect of that community and its religion or culture. This constitutes typical cases of glocalization, as well as the high culture-low culture interrelationship. Festivals often serve to fulfill specific communal purposes, especially in regard to commemoration or thanking to the gods, goddesses or saints: they're called patronal festivals. They may also provide entertainment, which was particularly important to local communities before the advent of mass-produced entertainment.

There are different kinds of festivals which are celebrated across the globe. This could be a celebration of good harvest, cultural, religious, art, or music. There are also different ways on how they celebrate their kind of festival. Whether it’s a seasonal festival honoring the new year or an art festival with decades of tradition, festivals help connect us to our roots, our culture, and our values.

Have you been to some places and attended different festivals? What type of festival did you enjoy the most? Take a look at some great and lovely layouts below that are related to celebrating festivals and be inspired to create your own festival-themed scrapbook pages!

Theme – Honeymoon

Honeymoon originates from old English and is a combination of two words, “Honey” and “Moone.” Honey represents sweetness like the food, and Moone refers to the period of one month. Couples used to celebrate the first month of marriage drinking Mead (a sweet drink) gifted to them. Honeymoon historically refers to the first month of marriage, which is expected to be the sweetest.

This represents one of the most traditional elements of the whole wedding and one that is highly unlikely to ever go out of fashion, even today. It is the period a couple spends time together alone, enjoying just the company of each other, away from family and friends. The first unforgettable moments as a married couple happen during this event of their lives. It is the time to bond, relax, enjoy things together, go on adventures, reflect on the relationship and what comes ahead. After all the stress of wedding planning, married couples deserve a memorable honeymoon. They usually go on a vacation or a trip to celebrate it. 

How did you spend your honeymoon? Whether it could be on a beach, a trip to far away places, enjoying city lights or going on adventures, for sure it was a special one because you are with the one that you will spend your whole life with. Let’s take a look at some of these amazing layouts on how they celebrated the first memorable events of their married lives.

Theme – Covid-19

Covid-19 is a respiratory illness caused by the new type of coronavirus called Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 or SARS‑CoV‑2. The virus was first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019 and was said to originate from bats. Since its emergence, it has impacted the lives of millions of people on every continent. From the way we dress up, to the way we go to work or do our school stuff, to how often we go out and so much more, there was definitely a massive change.

But despite it all, the government officials, the medical frontliners, and our other modern-day heroes worked hand-in-hand to find solutions and make things better for us. The pandemic may not be over yet, but looking back over the past few years, we must say we somehow did a great job. Everyone tried their best to follow the rules imposed and help fight the spread of the life-threatening disease. A lot of people showed compassion towards each other by going above and beyond their call of duty.

In honor of the progress we have made so far while battling this global epidemic, we decided to make Covid-19 our theme for this month. Here are some inspiring layouts that hopefully will make all of us appreciate our journey more during these times.

Theme – Shopping

Shopping has always been a part of our day-to-day activities. From buying foods and other necessities, to picking new outfits for ourselves, to purchasing gifts for our friends and loved ones, we had to do this kind of thing. While there are people who see it as a common practice, some find it as an excellent way to relieve some tension and stress. They believe it has therapeutic effects as they find themselves constantly entertained, excited and happy whenever they go shopping.

Typically, people visit some stores to buy the goods they need or want. But after so many years, a lot of things have changed and that includes the way we shop. Now that technology has become more advanced, sellers have gained the power to reach out to their potential customers in an easier way through online marketplaces and platforms. So aside from their physical stores, they can offer buyers another hassle-free shopping experience that does not require them to go out of their homes or offices.

Are you one of those people who loves to shop? Do you prefer to go shopping alone or with somebody else? Are you a fan of purchasing products over the internet? Why not tell your shopaholic stories by creating a scrapbook layout just for them!
