Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



celebrate national scrapbook day with us!


The big day is finally here … a day set aside to scrapbook and share and save big!


To start, it’s called National Scrapbook Day for a reason – it’s a day to scrapbook! Most of us have loads of photos and plenty of supplies, but sometimes we need a little “nudge” to get our creative juices flowing. Looking for some fun and inspiration? Follow along at Big Picture Classes as 10 different instructors share tips, tricks, and their own pages with a goal of seeing 10,000 scrapbook pages posted on Instagram using the hashtag #NSD10K. Can you imagine? I will be sharing a quick video and inspiration at 5:00 PM Pacific Time – I hope you’ll join me in the classroom then!


In addition to sharing your pages with the BPC hashtag, why not add the #ProjectLife hashtag when you share your work on Instagram (as long as you’re actually using Project Life® products, of course)? We’ll be watching all day for layouts being posted using both hashtags and will be randomly selecting 3 people to win a Core Kit, Album, and Big Pack of Photo Pocket Pages of your choice!

big sale

And what would a celebration be without a sale? For 24 hours only (beginning May 3rd at midnight Pacific Time) you’ll save 30% off EVERYTHING in our online shop. Just add NSD in the coupon code box at checkout. You will then see the discount applied to the total at that point.

Please note that the regular prices are shown throughout the shopping cart. Just didn’t want you to worry if the sale was really working. Again – you will see the 30% off discount in your actual cart after you’ve entered the coupon code – NSD.

Not only that, you’ll receive a free gift with your purchase – to be selected at checkout! Prefer our digital products? You’ll find all of our digital goodies are 30% off, too! Absolutely. While there is no gift included with digital purchases, you do have the benefit of being able to download and use them immediately rather than waiting for them to arrive on your doorstep.  : )

* NOTE: We absolutely know that our international customers would love to be in on this sale. I assure you that we are working hard to add the option for international shipping and will keep you posted as soon as we get that implemented and tested in the coming weeks. Thanks so much for your patience.


Okay – enough chit chat. Enjoy (Inter)National Scrapbook Day! We hope you will find some time today to celebrate, document, share, and shop. It sounds like the perfect Saturday to me!

    Hi Becky I am experiencing an issue with PayPal as 30 percent off discount is not showing when I try to pay via pay pal even though it appears in the cart :(

  2. Trisha says:

    Hi Becky!
    Thank you so much for the generosity on your shop!
    However I’m not able to input the country. It states that the USA/United States/America don’t exist. ;o(

  3. Gayle says:

    For some reason when I checked out and received the order confirmation in my email, the only items that show the 30% discount is the first item on my list (which I ordered two of)… everything else shows the regular price. How can I get this corrected?

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Gayle, sorry about that. We had technical issues as the start of the sale. Should be fixed now. We will take care of crediting you (and a handful of other orders that were placed early) properly. You will receive an email from us notifying you of the credit on Monday.

  4. Devry says:

    Hi Becky
    I’m having the same issue as Gale. My order showed all items 30% off in my cart but once I submitted my order it only shows one item 30% off after I placed my order. :( Anyway to have this corrected?

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      So sorry Devry. As I mentioned to Gayle, we will take care of crediting you (and a handful of other orders that were placed early) properly. You will receive an email from us notifying you of the credit on Monday.

  5. Cheryl says:

    I can’t view the discount in the cart at the end at all.

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Should be fixed now. In your cart, enter NSD in the coupon code box under your itemized list.

  6. Kathryn Benfiet says:

    The discount is not showing in my shopping cart and I hesitate to enter my paypal or credit card info as I will be charged full price. What should I do?

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Sorry Kathryn. Technical issues. The way we had the sale set up wasn’t working properly so now you just need to enter NSD in the coupon code box under your itemized products in the cart. The total will reflect that 30% off your total order. Then you should feel a-okay about placing your order. Thanks for your patience.

  7. Stephanie says:

    I love this Becky! I just added a bunch of stuff to my cart! Hoping the international shipping will be ready soon, so I can place my order! Can’t wait!

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Stephanie, we sooo wish that the international option was working in time for today’s sale. Please know that we’re working hard to make it happen, but it’s not going to be in time for TODAY. We’ll be sure to let everyone know when that international shipping option is finally up & running. Thanks for your patience!

    • Stephanie says:

      Does this mean I can’t have the 30% off than? That really sucks:(

  8. Sheila says:

    STILL not working….”Sorry, this coupon is not applicable to your cart contents.”

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Sheila, it’s possible that you were actively in your cart when the fixes were being implemented. Please empty your cart, refresh the shop, and try again. Or try a different browser if you’re still having issues? So sorry for the inconvenience.

  9. Katie says:

    Becky, will there be a 30% off sale when international shipping gets fixed so that we won’t have missed out on this?

    So itching to order! :(

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      We definitely want to share another sale opportunity when our international shipping gets working! We know you’re itching to order. We are itching to have this up & running as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience, Katie.

  10. Leslie Spies says:

    When I try and enter the coupon it says “Sorry, this coupon is not applicable to your cart contents.” :(

  11. Sheila says:

    Sorry Becky but it is still not fixed yet and it looks like it’s not just me. I still get the message “Sorry, this coupon is not applicable to your cart contents.”

  12. LB says:

    SOOOOO excited. I ordered 174 photos and am ready to go. I can not wait to get going, but first a stroll through your shop. Thanks for the great sale and fun times ahead today.

  13. lora ernest says:

    Hi Becky. I have added several items to my cart but it seems to only show the last item added on the screen. When I click on the cart it shows no items found in cart.

    • Lora Ernest says:

      I switched devices and am now able to get to cart with items in it but it will not take the code. I have empties my cart and have restarted numerous times only to get the same message.

    • Lora, I’m not sure why this isn’t working for you. So sorry to hear that! We’ve worked through issues on our end and it seems to be working for most by now. Did you try clearing your cookies and refreshing your browser – or trying a different browser?

  14. orange says:

    My 30% off also did show up? I ordered two core kits, used the code and it said it didn’t work?? Unfortunately it all went through, so I paid $59.98 instead of what it should be? :-( 9:00 AM CST

  15. Christina says:

    It is almost 10:30 am EST and the code NSD gives the message “Sorry, this coupon is not applicable to your cart contents.” when I try to use it.

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Please give it another shot Christina. We think those issues are now sorted out. Be sure to refresh your browser / shopping cart / clear the cookies. This can be helpful when encountering issues with placing an online order.

  16. Michelle says:

    The code still isn’t working. 9:30am CST

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Try again Michelle. And be sure to refresh your brower / shopping cart / clear the cookies … that sort of thing can be helpful when encountering issues with placing an online order.

  17. Lesley VW says:

    I think I found a solution??? Click on “View Cart” instead of “Checkout”, and enter the code there. The total discount will show at the bottom of that page (not on the individual items), then proceed to checkout and the discount remains. Hope this works for you!! 10:45 EST

    • Nancy says:

      Lesley – that didn’t work for me….still getting same error message at 10:58 EST

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      Ladies – Try clearing out your shopping cart, clearing out your cookies, refreshing your browser. Sometimes a little “refresher” just all that’s needed to successfully check out.

  18. Nancy says:

    The coupon worked! but no free shipping with the coupon even if my order is over $35. So sad.

  19. Michelle says:

    It worked! Free shipping worked for me as well.

  20. Dee Dee Driver says:

    Thank you so much for this great sale and for the concept that now rules all of my creativity.
    Yea Project Life.

  21. Rebecca says:

    Awesome discount. Soooo bummed though…..placed a large order last night. :-(

    • Becky Higgins Becky Higgins says:

      We have been giving heads-up all week long (blog, social media, eBlast) that there was a big sale coming for National Scrapbook Day. To be sure you’re totally in the loop, follow my updates on facebook, twitter, or instagram and you’ll be all in-the-know from now on. Thanks for your order, Rebecca!

  22. Zoe says:

    When does our pictures need to be posted to Instagram to be in the contest?

  23. Rianna says:

    There was no free gift to ‘select’ at checkout… but the free shipping is fantastic! is there something that will be added to my order or was the free shipping the gift?

  24. RaeLyn says:

    Thank you Becky! I just ordered for Mothers’ Day. My Mom has been wanting to get her 30+ years of photos in albums, but figured she didn’t have time to scrapbook. PL is awesome! Appreciate the great sale too :)

    • Oh, this will be SO great for your mom! You are awesome for helping her get started, RaeLyn. Glad you could take advantage of a good sale. :)

  25. Patricia says:

    I wanted to place an order but your website keeps timing out.

    • Loni says:

      I had the same problem too, Patricia. After trying for over two hours, using different browsers, etc I decided to give up :(

  26. Vee says:

    Hi Becky,

    I’m new to this and would like to start a scrap book for my baby. Which products do I need to begin with?


  27. Ann says:

    Am a BIG fan of PL and am anxiously awaiting the storage tote to become available. Is there a date it is expected?

  28. Zoe says:

    How long does an order take to ship?

  29. Sheryl Coe says:

    Random question, did you choose your Instagram winners from nsd10k? I left my account public to enter my layouts but am anxious to make it a private account again. Just wondering if the results are in?! I saw so many great entries!!

  30. Debra Pavlicin says:


    I placed a order for this sale & still have not received it? Is there a way I can check & see if the products are on it’s way? I have not received any order confirmation either.
