Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



hobby lobby shoppers/winners

Today’s the day!

Remember when we announced the contest? You guys weren’t messing around. In fact over 300 of you submitted a photo of you + your personally autographed product for a chance to win 1 of 10 prizes. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the undying enthusiasm! I think Hobby Lobby was probably a bit surprised by the number of phone calls asking WHEN is Project Life coming!? They are good sports and I’d like to give a shout-out to the patient and friendly Hobby Lobby employees who fielded all those calls.

Well … you guys are a blast, and honestly – we’ll miss seeing all those pictures pour in. But alas, the deadline for submitting has come and gone and today we’re announcing the 10 randomly selected winners!


{ 3 winners of the Project Life 18-piece Journaling Pen set }

I found a signed Seasons Mini Kit at the Hobby Lobby in Independence, Missouri! So excited. Thanks for the chance to win! (entry #1)

Here’s the 2nd one, Honey Edition! LOVE IT and cant believe how lucky i’ve been!! Thanks again! (entry #2)

I found a signed Cinnamon Edition at my Lees Summit, MO Hobby Lobby store last night! (entry #3)

I cannot believe it, but I just found a 4th signed kit! This one is a Wedding Mini Kit, which is one that I was wanting to buy anyways. Completely shocked when it was on the rack right on top! (entry #4)



Maria wrote: I am beyond thrilled that I scooped up two signed copies of Project Life kits. The first was the Seasons Mini Kit that I found in Southern Indiana. The second one was the Midnight Edition Core Kit in Louisville KY. I waited at that Hobby Lobby for six hours until the workers unpacked all the scrapbooking products that had come in that day. When they got to the PL box it was like a tv commercial when the “angelic awe” occurs. That is exactly how magical that moment was for me. It was such an honor to have autographed copies of PL. Project Life is truly an amazing and life -hanging system.Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your hard work and dedication making PL.

I was LITERALLY doing a happy dance in the Hobby Lobby aisle! Other shoppers thought I was crazy, but I didn’t even care!!!

Altie said: I’m Altie from Jonesboro, AR and I got the signed Honey kit today!! Woo hoo!! I got 100/100 so my kit is the picture in your blog announcement–pretty cool. I sent in a pic of the cute HL employees, too. They actually had the signed kit on their manager’s desk in the back because they knew it was special and didn’t think it was supposed to be out on the floor. I’m so glad I asked them. They want me to bring in my current PL album so they can see one “in real life.” Thanks for Project Life, and thanks for my signed kit. You rock, Becky!!!

    Congrats to the winners but did I miss something here? Was this contest for people who were LUCKY enough to even have a Hobby Lobby near them AND lucky enough to be able to buy the products?? Sorry to be sounding like a downer Debbie but it’s very frustrating when you don’t have a store near you AND products still aren’t at Amazon to purchase. So the lucky peeps are twice as lucky… *sigh*

    • Cindee says:

      You could have bought them online. People were receiving them when they ordered from HL online too.

      I ordered from HL online and didn’t get a signed one :( Sad.

      I’m frustrated that people were buying 4, yes 4! That is greedy and stingy in my book.

  15. J3SS1C4 says:

    Congrats everyone!! What awesome prizes! So much fun seeing all of the photos and messages that were shared!! I love Lisa’s notes with the music notes especially, so cute! And Joshua entering this for his Mum for Mother’s day is so sweet!

  16. Mary M. says:

    First of all, Jordan’s entry brought tears to my eyes. So sweet! Second of all, I didn’t even know this was a contest, but seeing all these photos posted online inspired me to drive an hour to my nearest Hobby Lobby to check out the PL there. I was so glad I did! The store was very cool and the employees were so nice. I loved it…I just wish it were closer! I only bought the Holidays mini kit – I’m waiting for the Rain edition to come out before I buy a core kit. =) All in all it was a super fun road trip! Thanks for inspiring it and congrats to all the winners! =)
