holiday cards are here!
It was more than a year ago that I had a very clear vision of what it would be like to have holiday cards built into the Project Life® App so customers could experience the ease and convenience that we all love about creating Project Life scrapbook pages in the app. My team was on board and as with pretty much everything we do around here… it takes a small village to pull it off. We’ve been working on this for quite some time, and it all started with an idea. An idea of simplicity. That led to a design contest, which led to having completed designs, which led to the implementation of all this awesomeness, which, of course, has led to today… the launch of these holiday cards in the app — for you!
It’s LIVE, friends! And the app itself is just 99 cents right now (not for long) so if you’re not sure… well, you don’t have much to lose for simply giving it a try. All the while, our development for Android has continued to be in the works, and we’re still looking for that to be available around the first of the new year.
Back to the mention of a design contest. Over the years we’ve made a tradition of hosting a design contest to find fun + fresh holiday card designs to share with our followers. We love doing this and are always so excited by what we see. We’ve offered these winning designs as a free digital download to our customers in the past, and as mentioned, this year we are also making them available in the Project Life App – for FREE, of course! Not only will you be able to create your cards in the app, but you’ll also be able to print them directly through the app, as well, making it the most simple and streamlined process you can imagine! We’re beyond thrilled about this and can’t wait for you to see your holiday cards in print! Until then, we’re delighted to share the winning designs right here! We hope you love the wonderfully unique selection as much as we do.
* All design work is already done. All you do is pop in your photo and personalize with your name if you’d like. Real family photos are used to show sample uses of the cards here.
Our holiday cards were created by a myriad of talented designers from all around the world. Some of them we’ve seen designs from in past years, and several are brand new to us in 2015. We contacted them a while back with the good news, but today we’re thrilled to publicly announce the names of the designers who shared their talents with us so we could provide these cards for you!

A few questions and answers
Q: What size are the finished cards?
A: This year we are offering the cards in only one size – 5×7.
Q: What type of paper are the holiday cards printed on through the App?
A: They are printed on a thick Premium Matte paper that provides stunning results!
Q: When I order my cards through the App, what is included?
A: You will be able to order cards in sets of 20. The 5×7 cards, envelopes, and shipping are all included in the cost!
Q: Can I order holiday cards to be shipped internationally?
A: This year our holiday cards will only be available for delivery in the U.S., but we hope to make international shipping an option in the future, since we do have that available for pages that are created in the app. You can still make the cards in the app and upload that finished piece to a local printer and print your cards that way.
Q: I don’t have the app or I’d prefer to download the digital files to use on my computer. Can I still do that?
A: You bet! This year’s designs can be found HERE in our digital shop!
