Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



HSN: one week from today!

A couple weeks ago we announced that Project Life® was coming back to HSN … this time with a twist! You can check that blog post out if you missed it.

The name of this new collection that we designed exclusively for HSN is called the JUST ADD COLOR Edition. On many of the cards, you’ll find one side in full color and one side in a neutral color, which enables you to “just add color”! In other words, we’ve included stickers (fun, adorable, vibrant, HAPPY little stickers!) for you to add just the right color in just the right place, wherever you see fit.


The Just Add Color HSN Kit includes:

  • PL Just Add Color Core Kit (as you know, this is where you’ll find all the cards, and enough to help you fill an entire 12×12 album!)
  • PL Just Add Color Photo Pocket Pages (4 designs x 15 each = 60 total Photo Pocket Pages)
  • PL Just Add Color 12×12 Album
  • PL Just Add Color Sticker Set – Alpha, Strip and Circles (oh just wait until you watch Lisa show these off on-air!)


When Lisa goes on-air a week from today (you do have your calendar marked for Sept. 17th, right?) she will show the product, and demonstrate the product. You will also have the opportunity that day to purchase a few “add-on” items, if they are of interest to you. Definitely stay tuned that day (by watching Lisa live, or visiting HSN.com, and of course visiting my blog right here) for more details and information.

  • PL Just Add Color Alpha Sticker Kit
  • PL 60-piece Overlay Kit
  • PL Date Stamp Kit

HSN times for Paper Crafting with Lisa Bearnson on September 17:

  • 10 am EST (7 am PST)
  • 2 pm EST (11 am PST)
  • 9 pm EST (6 pm PST)


JAC Inspiration

We put the Just Add Color Edition in the hands of several busy women for the very purpose of letting them play with the product, become familiar with it, and see how simple & FUN it is to use. Each of these women have shared their thoughts and sample pages and loads of pictures on their respective blogs. Here’s a link to each one for you to enjoy, and for you to be inspired.

I’m going to send you to one more place. You must check out Lisa Bearnson’s blog today. She is sharing entirely different pictures and details about just how cool this PL edition is – plus she paid the sweetest tribute to my MOM of all people! Don’t mind me. Just wiping a few tears from my cheeks today. I love that Lisa.

    I’m in Canada and want this kit so badly! Will it be something available to us in the future?

    • As of right now it’s only available in USA. I so wish HSN shipped to other countries.

      As for it being available in the future at regular retail, I think that’s still to be decided. However, I wouldn’t rule this possibility out.

      So Sorry, Natasha!

    • Paula O says:

      Same as Natasha, envious over here in beautiful Vancouver, Canada!

    • Sandrine says:

      Just fall in love with that so badly !!!!!!!
      I even do not ask the question, but I live in France :-)… so pleeeeease, think about doing it at regular retail :-)

  2. Cristina says:

    Pretty obsessed with how cute these are. I wonder if we’ll be able to purchase each item separately. I see that the add-ons can be purchased, but I’m thinking I might just want the core kit for now.

  3. Susan says:

    What does the core kit include and I can use my 4×6 photos for this album .. correct ?

  4. Kris says:

    Will the page protectors with these sizes be sold separately anywhere (just page protectors w pockets?)

    • Hey Kris! As of right now, the page protectors will only be available at HSN in the kit. However, it’s a possibility they will be available at a future date as a separate purchase.

  5. Vi says:

    Oh, my GAWD. This is great. I need two!

  6. Kala says:

    so excited for this kit!

  7. Stacia says:

    Someone had to ask so it’s going to be me this time. :D Will there be digital versions too? These are so fun!

  8. Thanks so much for sharing the video, Becky! Can’t wait to share my layouts on The Mom Creative tomorrow. They might be my favorite Project Life layouts ever. :)

  9. Erin Taylor says:

    Hey Becky, I don’t shop HSN a lot so I’m not sure how they do things. Will the kit be available starting at midnight Eastern on the 17th? Or 10am, when Lisa starts her demo? Thanks!

    • I’ll chime in here since I’m familiar with HSN’s way of business.

      Sometimes HSN will put the kits on the website when they receive them in their warehouse. This could be a few days beforehand, the day before or sometimes not at all. The key word is “sometimes.” When it does go on the website, that may be a good time to purchase it. However, one thing to note. There are times when the on-air price is cheaper than the price on the website. So–it’s a little risky to buy it before it’s on air.

      As of right now, I’m scheduled to begin selling Project Life’s “Just Add Color” in my 10 a.m. ET hour called “Paper Crafting with Lisa Bearnson.” However, there is a tiny bit of a chance that the first sell could be at 2:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m.

      I’ll let Becky know the morning of the 17th so she can spread the word exactly when I’ll begin the sell of “Just Add Color.”

      Sorry this is a bit confusing. That’s world of home shopping television. Everything is subject to change!

      Thanks for your support!

  10. Nat says:

    So IN LOVE with this kit! Thanks for sharing our layout! xoxo, Nat

  11. Angela says:

    Congratulations on yet another adorable edition of PL. There are so many choices I almost don’t know where to start. But since I always start with the plastic, I would like to cast a vote that the page protector with the band of 2×2 slots across the middle be manufactured and sold separately (one with 36 2×2 slots would also be awesome). Similarly, I would love to see Design U and Design V offered as a separate pack for purchase.

    And while I’m wishing, please ask your mother if she will share her heart pattern with those of us that crochet. I would love to follow her example and send a little yarn love to some members of my family. Thanks.

  12. Jennifer says:

    I am soo excited for this kit I have been counting down the days!!! Just a quick question is there anyway you could tell us what exactly is the PL 60 piece overlay kit? I am just dying to know!! I know I will most likely be buying the PL date stamp kit with the bundle if even though I have no idea what it is but I LOVE date stamps :) Im jus so curious as to what the overlay kit is all about? Thank you!

  13. L.B. says:

    AHHHHHHthis is me screaming with excitement over the fun squares. Love the sneaks and very excited to play with this.

  14. Rachel says:

    This is beautiful! I love the 2×2 squares (perfect for including lots of photos and still finding room for a few embellishments) and the concept of full color and neutral editions of each card. Will there be a digital version available? And if so, would we need to watch HSN’s website for it or Becky’s new digital site? Thanks!

  15. I’m counting the days. :)


  16. Mary Beth says:

    so…. is this going to be in digital format as well?

  17. Marina says:

    Is it completely tragic that I took the day off work so I can watch all day and order??? True story!

  18. Tara Leake aka teeleedee says:

    Hope these new kits come to stores, since I live in Canada :)


  19. Carol Argyle says:

    This is gorgeous & I love that you have come up with some new page protector variations with the smaller cards. I just think its a shame that it is exclusive to US Project lifers. I live in New Zealand & so there is no way that I can get one of these. There are a lot of Project Lifers down under who often seem disadvantaged by the exclusivity of these kits. Why is it that these are exclusive and why is it that they cant be offered for general sale. Feel isolated & very disappointed. Seriously thinking of doing my PL pages without the kits in the future. Maybe a lost customer here.

  20. […] PROJECT LIFE: If you read my post a few weeks ago, you know I’ve fallen head over heals for Project Life. I used to be an avid scrapbooker, but with little time and a deepening desire to capture these fleeting moments, Project Life was the perfect answer. Becky Higgins (mastermind behind PL) just announced this adorable kit called Just Add Color that was designed exclusively for HSN! These adorable new pages have square spots PERFECT for Instagram prints! (Use Persnickety Prints to print ‘em out!) How cute is this little layout from Simple as That! […]

  21. Katie says:

    Becky, I really love the look of the Just Add Color kit, and was so excited about it; but I’ve just checked HSN and they won’t ship to the UK. Is there anyway that there could be a digital version of this kit, or a way to get it internationally?

    Even my local Hobby Craft store that is meant to s have stock Project Life and has it on their website as in stock, had no clue about it when I went into the shop as it hadn’t been delivered to them. It’s such a shame! I’m almost tempted to move to the States for my PL fix! The Just Add Color kit looks fantastic, and I would love a way to get my hands on it. Any ideas?

    Thanks so much in advance,

  22. Jocelyn says:

    I was so bummed to see the overlays are already sold out on HSN. Will you be getting more, have more the day Lisa is on HSN?

  23. Carrie Alexander says:

    Hey folks, it’s ALREADY ON SALE on the HSN site!!! Just ordered!!! SQUEAL!!!! (although, hrumph, I am a *bit* offended that my captcha code right now is “FAT.” HA!!!)

  24. Alida says:

    Hi Lisa/Becky, Í’d just like to confirm: Will it be available to international customers? Our your blog Lisa says not, but on her blog she calls it “Worldwide”? Would love to know if it is.

  25. DianneD says:

    Overlays already sold out!!!! BOOOOOOOOOOOO!! How could you do that to us???????

  26. […] lots of really cool inspiration from various people using the Just Add Color Edition in this post, if you missed […]

  27. Sue Forth says:

    Hi Becky … the UK would love to see you back on Create And Craft … please bring us the Just Add Color kit. Really disappointed that HSN doesn’t ship to the UK … the is so exciting … Sue
