Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.

Jan

7th

introducing new products + designers

I have been bursting at the seams to share all of this with you and now, with CHA being this week, I can shout it from the rooftops!! A few quick notes before I dig into all the new releases.

1. What is CHA? I realize some of you are familiar with CHA – and some of you are not. It stands for Craft + Hobby Association. It’s a trade show that takes place every Winter and every Summer. It’s happening in Anaheim, California Jan. 12-15. My personal experience with CHA is this: I’ve attended the show many, many times in my 12 years with Creating Keepsakes. I wore the editorial badge (because that was my position). I walked the show looking for the latest & greatest to feature in the magazine. I met a lot of fantastic people and looked for ways to support everyone with great ideas and great products. I haven’t been to CHA for several years since running our own company because we’ve been strictly focused on selling direct-to-consumer, not selling to retailers.

2. What is our role at CHA? It’s funny how some things work out full-circle. Here we are now … exhibiting at CHA. As you know, we recently began a partnership with American Crafts in order to get Project Life in the retail scene. Our role at CHA this coming week is to share our passion for Project Life with everyone that stops by our booth (#2628 for anyone taking notes – we’ll be adjacent to the American Crafts booth). I am certain we will meet some people who already know about Project Life, just as certain as I am that we will meet lots of people who have never heard of Project Life. I can’t wait to share with them WHY Project Life is different than any other scrapbooking product on the market. Every retailer will have the opportunity to learn about Project Life and – if they choose – place an order to carry Project Life in their store.

3. When do these products show up in stores? Everything we are introducing at CHA this week is expected to arrive in stores May of this year. Keep this in mind as you flip through the catalog because I have a feeling that you’re going to spot something that you just love (which of course is what I’m hoping for) … and then you might wonder if you should hold out. This is what you need to know: The Olive Edition & Seafoam Edition of Project Life are expected to arrive at Amazon this coming weekend (while we’re at CHA). Which means you can have a shiny new kit now and get today’s memories into an album now. Waiting for one of the new editions in this catalog means waiting until May. I’m just saying. And … you also need to know that Olive & Seafoam are not hitting stores in May. They are exclusively available direct-to-consumer (which right now means Amazon).

4. Will these new editions be available in digital format? You bet. We’ll bring it all to ACDigitals.com in due time. When exactly we do that is TBA. Stay tuned.

…..

Without further ado … I present to you our catalog for CHA-Winter 2013! I’m not even going to point anything out. The catalog pages will speak for themselves. Dive in. Pour over every page. You won’t believe how many new editions we’re releasing (yep – we’ve been busy bees). So much eye candy. But … still the same, simple, solution-based system that continues to help people all over the world get their memories into an album without all the fuss. Just more styles to choose from. I love that. We are stoked.

…..

One last note, but certainly not the least important … I am tickled pink to announce WHO the amazing graphic designers are behind all of the new editions we’re releasing. You might see some familiar faces, maybe not. A few designers are returning favorites. Some are brand-new to our Project Life family. ALL are beloved and talented and we are SO proud to work with them! Check out our Graphic Designers page to get to know each of them.

Left to right in no particular order, they ooze awesomeness:

Kimberly Church – Wedding Mini Kit

Nisa Fiin – Rain Edition

Tiffani Smith – Kraft Edition

Kerri Bradford – Cinnamon Edition

Lili Niclass – Jade Edition + Seasons Mini Kit + Baby Mini Kits

Lori Whitlock – Honey Edition + Childhood Mini Kit

Liz Tamanaha – Midnight Edition

American Crafts in-house graphic designers – Blush Edition + Holidays Mini Kit

…..

Happy catalog browsing! Obviously we’d love to know what you think if you feel like leaving a note. And if you are planning to be at CHA … please come by and say hello!

  3. Andrea says:

    OMSTARS!!!! Those new core kits are to DIE for!!!! Kudos to all of the designers and to you Becky! I cannot decide which core kit I want now. I might just have to buy the Honey, Midnight, and Rain kits. Amazing designs ladies!!!!!

  4. Brenda says:

    haven’t looked at the catalog yet… wondering if it will be available in physical format as well…………… you know so i can sit down with a cup of tea and brouwse through the catalog without the glare of a computer screen in front of me? Please answer

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      I don’t think there are any plans to offer this catalog in a physical print out, but you could always print it at home and then sit with your cup of tea :)

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      we will be offering a catalog for our distributors. That will be available during CHA week.

  5. Sabrina L says:

    Eek! They’re all so gorgeous. I’ll be buying Seafoam as soon as its released but now I think I also need Jade, Honey and Kraft! So amazing. And matching pens!

  6. Kristie M says:

    Seriously in love! I want so many of them! Beautiful work! I was curious if all the new products from the catalog will only be sold in stores, or will they continue to be available for purchase on Amazon as well.
    Thank you for such an amazing product! I’m on my 5th year of Project Life, including the first year of Project 365. And I absolutely love it!
    Kristie M.

  7. katie says:

    So, so pretty!! Man, I was already excited for this weekend to get one of the new editions and it looks like I’ll be adding more (possibly MANY more!) editions in May! Great job ladies!!

  8. Melanie A. says:

    This has certainly been a major undertaking for you hasn’t it!! I love the new kits!! I love the new minis! Thank you for adding some others for those of us who do not have kids. I cannot wait for the new stuff to be out.

  9. Jacqueline R says:

    WOW, I am amazed at all of the new, beautiful project coming out! SO excited! I really don’t know how I am going to choose!

    I also see how much thought your team has put into our (the customers’ feedback). There are several things I have seen mentioned multiple times (holiday, wedding, seasons, neutrals) that you are debuting this year. THANK YOU for always taking to the time to listen! I know that comes with drawbacks for you (negativity), but you continue to filter that out and use the constructive feedback to give your customers what they want. LOVE the product and company you have created! THANK YOU!

  10. Jennie M says:

    Oh my goodness!!! I am BLOWN away!! I have to say a HUGE thank you for the albums!!! I have been trying to find perfect albums and those are exactly what I am looking for in the colors I want! Thank you! Bedsides that, the new kits look amazing! Now I want to go back and document the last 10 years, lol! Thank you Becky, for this system and so many wonderful designs. You have truly changed my life with this and helped me preserve my memories in an easy and fun way when I was just overwhelmed before. My family and I thank you! :)

  11. Heather says:

    Cinnamon and Midnight are fantastic, there so so many I can hardly choose!

  12. Kristen C says:

    OMG!!! They are so amazing!! It was like a party … the goodness just kept coming page after page!! I can’t wait for them to hit the stores! I also would like to know if they will be only available in stores or on Amazon too?? Great job Becky and team … you all deserve a big giant pat on the back!!

  13. Amy says:

    Amazing! I was looking for a kit to mix with the Bridgeport Childhood edition (digi version) to use in a seamless album and I see at LEAST two options in the catalog! I plan to put the photos in my album together as the year goes on, and then add in the kit fillers when the digi versions come out. This is EXACTLY what I’ve been waiting for! I haven’t truly scrapbooked in a very long time. I can not wait!

  14. Erin says:

    New pens, album and kits OH MY! My favorites are the midnight, jade and cinnamon core kits, the faux leather albums (so classic, simple and traditional) and the holiday mini kit!! Now I must paint my project table that my hubby made for me this weekend even quicker!! Congrats to you and your team.

  15. Megan says:

    These are all amazing! Can not wait! I wish I would have found Project Life sooner than I have. It’s everything I’ve wanted to do with our photos and keepsakes but never knew where to start on my own. Thank you!!

  16. Cindie says:

    Wow, all of those look so nice! I liked the older kits, but these seem much more suited to my needs (aka a 20something without children and charming pictures of kids to fill up my albums!). Thanks for all of your hard work, I can’t wait to see these on Amazon so I can snap them up. Now I just need to decide on which of the new kits is best…

  17. Shanon says:

    Just when I thought things couldn’t get better…. Oh my, I love all of them! If you had to discontinue your past editions, you have certainly found a beautiful way to ease our pain! :-) Breathtaking!

  18. Linda S says:

    So many beautiful editions!! How will I be able to choose when I want almost all of them? Love to see cameras, love the more pink edition, the new pens and…. everything :)

  19. scrappysue says:

    Oh WOW Becky, I just saw what you posted on Instagram, totally in LOVE, LOL!!!!! Oh boy, I want them all!!! No wonder you were so excited, doing a happy dance and I haven’t even seen the full catalogue yet. So much to take in, you have made my day!!

  20. Wendy says:

    Such beautiful product! Just curious what is the status of your relationship with Shutterfly? Will any of these new versions be released to use on their site or should I be looking at a new way of doing PL? How are you Becky documenting your family life for 2013?

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      Shutterfly has decided to add our upcoming Olive & 2 of our childhood editions to their line-up this June. We would love to see all of our editions added to their site, but that is not up to us. Please feel free to email them directly with product requests.

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      Shutterfly has decided to add our upcoming Olive & 2 of our Childhood editions to their line-up this May/June. We of course would love to see all of our editions on their site, but that is not left up to us. Please feel free to email shutterfly directly with product requests.

  21. Jamie Lott says:

    Oh my word! Love! I am also waiting for Seafoam to start this year’s album, but now I NEED Jade, Kraft, Honey, mini Hoildays, the childhood kits and baby kits. I hope a store close by picks them up at CHA!
    You have done an amazing job! I cannot wait to pick them all up!

  22. What stores will carry them? We have no scrapbook stores around here anymore…will they available online too?

  23. Alissa says:

    I am SO EXCITED about the Holidays & Seasons mini kits. That is totally what I was thinking would be great for my 2013 album. I can’t stand to look at the new core kits because I pretty much want them all. LOVE! And I just started putting my wedding photos in PL pages, but was waiting to see if you’d have something at CHA – and yes, I’ll be ordering a wedding mini kit now too! SO EXCITING!!!

  24. Amanda Susan says:

    I want to start by saying I have faithfully documented my life for 2 years using Project Life and cherish those albums. They are a perfect representation of my life. That said, I get a little more disheartened with every announcement. I feel like with so many different kits the market is getting oversaturated with Project Life and this could be the beginnign of the end. I’m not saying in how we document our lives but there comes a point where more is not better, it’s just more. I will continue this year to document my life project life style but not with a new kit, with things I already have the excessive left overs from last year’s project life core kit.

  25. Helle Sahl says:

    It is lovely. Think you for sharing.

  26. EmmaJ says:

    I love the Jade, Honey, and Blush. They are so perfect or my family!
    And the Cinamon binder!!!
    Oh Becky! It is all so amazing!
    And the Holiday mini!!! So excited about that!
    And more mini album colors and pens!
    I need to use up the 3 kits I now have so I can get these!

  27. Tiffany H. says:

    Amazing! Just amazing! Once again you’ve hit out of the ballpark, Becky! So excited for you and your little company (which isn’t going to stay little for long)!

  28. amy says:

    My favorites are Jade and Kraft and mini kit seasons. THey are all cute though! And it seems like the 4×6 design cards on the newer kits do not have the blank spot that is usually used to write the week # and days…..LOVE that! I don’t use this product for weekly so I LOVE that!!! Did I already say that? : )

    Nice work Becky and all the designers!

    amy

  29. Juli says:

    Love, Love, Love what I am seeing!!!!! Just wondering what stores will be carrying these products. Will they also be available on Amazon???? Can not wait to get my hands on a few of these and I am really liking the mini kits…season and holiday! Fabulous!!!!!!!!!!

  30. kristina says:

    LOVE. THEM. ALL.
    Nuff said. :)

  31. Nancy says:

    Over-the-top awesome! Great designs!!

  32. Kelly M says:

    Awesome!

    Will you be featuring each of the new editions on your blog so that we can get a closer look at the components of each kit?
    I like to pour over every detail before I make a decision!

    Thanks!

    Kelly

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      Yes, as we near May, Becky will be sharing closer looks at all of her new products. You can also link to each of our designers blogs today and get a closer look at their kit. So much goodness!

  33. Charity says:

    Wow! That’s a lot of new kits! How often will new core kits be released? I do an album a year and am trying to figure out if these are the ones I’ll be choosing from for 2014 (I’m getting the seafoam kit for 2013) or if there will be more kits released before next year. Thanks!

  34. keianna says:

    Wow, you have been busy. I absolutely love Blush and Honey. Love all the binder colors and options. Excited to see more cards from the Holiday and Seasons collection. Great job.

  35. Kris says:

    I hope they will be available on Amazon — no stores here and I love amazon.

  36. Becky says:

    Gorgeousness! I cannot wait for the digital collections – especially of Honey and Kraft… I swoon.

  37. Rachel says:

    Wow! Not sure how I’m going to choose! Very excited for these!!!!

  38. jenn gent says:

    LOVE them all! I don’t know if I could choose just one! :)
    PLEASE let us know when they will be available digitally. If it is soon, I will wait and but one (or a few!!) digitally but I don’t want to have too much catch up on. I wasn’t planning on using the Olive or Seafoam so I’m still trying to figure out what to do… eek!!

  39. Sarah Giles says:

    Oooh, lots of loveliness! :) From what I’ve seen so far I like Jade, Honey and Midnight best. Midnight also looks like it will mix well with the neutral baby edition. Is there a reason that’s not pictured? Is it (gasp) being discontinued already? If so I will snap it up quickly! :)

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      Our neutral baby kit will continue to be available online. It is not in the catalog because it will not be available in stores at this time.

  40. Love them all! Love that there are multiple albums for some kits – great idea!! Question: For the “classic” albums it says cherry, cobalt, clemantine etc – does that mean the designed binders like we have a plain colored ones to coordinate? Thanks!

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      Yes, these are plain colored albums that would coordinate well with our existing 5 kits.

  41. JenniferL. says:

    I am dying!!!! LOVE all these new editions. I was expecting a few new mini kits, maybe some albums, but this is over the top! Can’t wait to get my hands on so much of this stuff!!!!
    PS: really push Archivers to want to carry your stuff because that is where I buy all my products!!! (other than Amazon)

  42. Kristine says:

    Would you explain the new stragey here–are these core kits going to be year round vs being released prior to a new year? Are they going to be replenished or when they are done they are done? The next round for 2014 – more coming prior to 2014 or are these the new core kits. Im just a little confused, now that there are so many and mid year.
    I also REALLY hope they will continue on Amazon, as no stores in my area and I love using Amazon.

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      It is too soon to know how long these new kits will stay around. We of course will want to see ‘how they do.’ Our hopes are to offer new selections a few times a year. Either way I hope we have offered enough selection to get you through the next year :)

  43. Tamikko Gordin says:

    That catalog was the perfect story I have been waiting for! It started with something new, and peaked with my favourites, Cinnamon and Rain! It got really exciting with a little birthday ice cream cone and some holiday cheer. The story ended with a high note! PENS!!! I am so excited for these sets. I see many albums in my future.

  44. Katie D. says:

    I didn’t even have to view the catalog – once I saw that Liz Tamanaha was a designer, I was beyond giddy! Everything is just GORGEOUS! Can’t wait until May!

  45. Pheeebzzz says:

    Love, love love everything ! Amazing job from all the designers.
    I especially love Jade and Honey and will definitely start saving so I can buy some of these when they’re released. I assume digital versions are going to be available too, can you confirm ? TIA !

  46. Kathleen says:

    A.MAZ.ING!!!! I can’t wait to add some of these items to my 2013 album AND I hope to do my 2010 album this year as well—I didn’t start until 2011 and I have SOOOO many sweet memories to scrapbook—ok, 23 years of memories with kids—so I see alot of albums in my future! I am grateful to have all the choices! I hope a store near me will carry everything so I can mix and match—I’m just head over heels in love with a few of them!

  47. Kristine says:

    Becky – Congratulations to you and your team on these gorgeous new lines and products! So excited to see where this is going – it has transformed my scrapbooking for the better and there is no turning back now. Thanks for all your work and inspiration.

  48. Sarah says:

    Wow, love them all but REALLY LOVE the Honey and Kraft editions, I might just have to get BOTH and the pens and, and, and………. lol xxx

  49. Heather says:

    Oh my stars, you making me go back to the physical form of scrapbooking. I can’t have just two options on Shutterfly. I have three boys who would love a different kit and the Honey, oh my daughter is getting that one. I love them all and the option of the season will be perfect when those holidays do come around and you want to make them special. Thank you.

  50. Vanessa B. says:

    RI.DIC.U.LOUS. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. They are all so gorgeous. The thought you put in to your products is remarkable. I have old kits I haven’t used yet and I am figuring out which of the new I want! Way to go, Becky. Good luck at CHA. I have a feeling your booth is going to be busy.

  51. Nolwenn says:

    oooh I wish I could come discover the products in person at CHA. It is such a great opportunity for you.
    There are many new collections that cought my eyes (but we still need to make choices eh). I love that there are new mini collections as well. And that there are pens (even if I think they are just newly re-branded «Precision Pens» already existing, by American Crafts).

  52. Deirdre says:

    I’m looking forward to looking at all the goodies in the catalog, but in case it’s not in there and I don’t get back here, I wanted to give another shout out for a 3×4 punch that is made to fit your smaller pockets perfectly (2.9×3.9?). Is it in the works? I’m hoping this is something American Crafts is able to make happen!
    Thanks.

  53. Ebony S says:

    OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! The new products and Core Kits are AMAZING!!! You and the design team truly out did yourselves this time!:-) I want to buy at least 4 of the kits, but my absolute favorite is Jade!!! Oh and the mini wedding kit! I need to save up some $$$$ for all these kits lol!

  54. Penny says:

    They are all gorgeous! Congrats on all the new and exciting product. Will you still use Amazon as a distributor once the product is available in stores? I love Amazon…they make everything so easy. Just curious…thanks!

  55. Tammy K says:

    I love all the new products that are coming soon! Will they be available in Amazon as well? That’s one of my preferred shopping places – although if they are available online someplace, that wouldn’t be too bad. Just wondering. Wait til May? I guess I will have to – those new Editions (Kraft, Honey, Jade, Midnight) are all so awesome!!!

  56. Meredith A says:

    Wow! I don’t think anyone was expecting so many new and great kits to come out!! I too am hoping that they will continue to be sold on Amazon!!

  57. stephanie says:

    Oh my heavens, So many beautiful choices. Becky, you and your team never cease to amaze me. Keep it coming and I’ll keep supporting you. :)

  58. Nancy says:

    WOW!!! Super excited! Love them all. What stores will be carrying these?? Can’t wait. So hard to choose.Thank you!!!!!!!!!

  59. Camile says:

    Oh my God!!! i am at work and all i want is going around screaming!!! i love all kits, ALL OF IT!!!

    Will be hard waiting untill may!

  60. Debra says:

    They are all gorgeous!! Great job!! Hope some stores in my area will carry them.

  61. Judi D says:

    Holy COW – can’t pick a favorite. Nice work everyone.

  62. Sue Alger says:

    Oh I so glad to see a catalog with all the neat stuff. The collections are wonderful. Love the mini collections, love the mini albums, love everything. I’m a digital gal, so am so glad to know that everything will be in digital format.

    Just beginning my second year in Project Life, and after scrapping for over 20 years, I must say this is the most fun I’ve had scrapping.

  63. Melanie says:

    I can’t wait for Midnight edition in digital format!!!!

  64. Angela Whitaker says:

    I love all the new editions. I love how you listen to your customers and combine it with your expertise to come up with amazing products. I’m most excited about all the choices for binders! I will just wait now, to get one for my baby girl’s book!

  65. Marie says:

    Sweet fancy moses, I might need to go lay down.

    These are phenomenal.

  66. Teresa says:

    What about Shutterfly? I thought Becky did her families Project Life on Shutterfly but none of these have been added or any talk of adding to Shutterfly?

    • Wendy says:

      I’ve been asking the same question on several different posts lately and still haven’t received any feedback.

    • Wendy says:

      Just got response that Shutterfly will only be adding Olive and 2 childhood ed. Not sure what Becky is planning.

    • Pamela K says:

      I got that feedback too. Very disappointing. I love doing the photobook, but don’t care for being left out of the loop with the new designs. Sigh.

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      We would love to see all of our editions available on Shutterfly but this is not up to us. Shutterfly is the one to decide what editions they will add to their site. Please make sure you let them know you are interested in seeing more of our products available through them! Thanks :)

  67. marisa says:

    Sorry might have been answered :( Are these available on Amazon as well? Or just locally in stores? I’m pretty sure my 2 scrapbook stores won’t be carrying them even though I am going to promote them when I go in! I am loving the Xmas sets!!

  68. Andrew says:

    Awesome!

  69. […] ! Quel catalogue !! Si vous voulez savoir de quoi je parle, filez plutôt lire le billet de Becky. Moi, je continue à économiser (Cinnamon, Rain,Jade, […]

  70. Chris says:

    ACK! I could die happy JUST with the Cinnamon album!

  71. I am one happy girl right now!

  72. Michelle B says:

    Omg! I hope one of the core kits are available in Feb!! At this point, I’d take any one. I love them all!!!!

  73. Mikki says:

    Becky, Are you going to be including “idea pages” for combining every kit into 1 album!? =P The new kits are simply outstanding. I want them all.

    Thank you so much for putting out consistently beautiful and great products.

  74. Yvonne Gronau says:

    This is so amazing. I love all the choices in design, the mini kits and albums . . . .it’s all so wonderful. Congratulations to you and your team on all your hard work. My only question is, did I miss the spot in the catalogue that tells us the prices of everything? Would love to be able to know what I can work into my budget. Thank you!

  75. Mary M. says:

    One of the reasons I have not done Project Life yet, even though the concept appeals to me and the products are gorgeous, is that none of the editions so far has really spoken to me, or seemed very “me”. And now, it is finally here: the Rain Edition. I swear my heart skipped a beat. The perfect color scheme with the prettiest designs. I’m totally in love. Thank you Nisa, Becky, and AC! Also I love the idea of the seasons and holidays mini kits, so you can just slip those themed pieces in at the appropriate places of your album. LOVE it! =)

  76. Jacki Armes says:

    Oh. My. Goodness. I need them all. “Rain” is my favorite. The blues & purples are totally me (purple is my fav color).

    I’ve been considering starting Project Life this year, and this new collection might be the kick I needed! These products are amazing! Thank you!!

  77. “THUD” ….WOW Becky!!!! These are AMAZING! I have just started Project Life…in fact I am in the midst of my title page and took a break when I saw this posted on Facebook! I am in LOVE with the Honey collection by Lori Whitlock! It’s a must have. I also LOVE the elegance of Kerri Bradford’s collection…so elegant! I am thinking I may have to do more than one PL book at a time here!

    I wish you a HUGE success at CHA. You have been such an inspiration to me for the last 14 years and you deserve every success. You certainly did think of the million dollar creation and I hope you reap all the rewards for it!

    God Bless you.

  78. Jill says:

    So excited!!! I can’t stop looking at the new kits. LOVE them!!!

  79. Christy says:

    Nice job, Becky!! I had a feeling you were working on some other sets. I couldn’t imagine meeting the demand with just the Seafoam and Olive editions. I only just learned of Project Life recently and am attempting it. Wow, that wasn’t very committed on my part, now was it? Okay, again. I am starting Project Life now. Now, as in right now. First, plugging in my new picture printer. I know, 7 days late. But here I go…. wish me luck. I just may need it.

  80. Sarah says:

    I LOVE the new products..you continue to AMAZE me! On my 5th year of doing PL and I am so excited to see so many new products coming!! Good Luck! Thank you , thank you for revolutionizing “scrapbooking”!!! I couldn’t have documented our memories over the last 4 years without PL!!

  81. Jeanne S says:

    WOW! I’ll be drooling over this catalog for the next few months! What great talent the PL designers have added! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these…no ALL of these kits. :) And I’ll finally get working on my scrapbooks. I’ve put it off for so long all ready! Thank you so much for this idea Becky…it truly is a great way to scrapbook!

  82. Ali says:

    Hi Becky. I haven’t looked at the catalog yet but saw the peaks on Facebook and was very excited. Now I realise why you have been low key the past 6 weeks or so!! (I had been concerned that something unpleasant had happened, so I am pleased that it hasn’t). I love these new editions, it will be hard choosing! I also wanted to say that the childhood mini kits (wellington etc) arrived for me at the weekend and I love them. However, I think you are doing yourself a disservice by calling them “childhood” because actually 95% of the cards coiuld easily be used in a non-childhood context as part of the everyday PL album for a family, couple or single person. Just sayin – there ismore than one use for these albums and the label might put off some people who don’t have kids or need a childhood kit. I have a request – could you produce A4 size protectors please for those of us outside the US – lots of my additional items are that size and when I put them in the 8×10 or 8.5 x 11 inserts there is either too much space either side of them or they stick out of the top of the album. I don’t really want to use regular A4 protectors from the office supply shop as I prefer all the same brand. Thank you! Ali in NZ

    I LOVE YOU BECKY, and am a faithful and devoted PL customer. But I have a bone to pick with something I keep seeing over and over in your blog posts…..

    Please, please, please use the phrase, “Without further ado,” (that’s ADO, as in ‘much ado about nothing’), correctly. “Adieu” means goodbye in French. ;o)

    And on that note, and without further ado; adieu! Thanks. And congrats on the terrific news!

  84. LeAnne B says:

    Wow! Such a hard decision, love so many! Great job to you and all your designers. There truly is something for everyone. You’ve been one busy lady. I am so happy for the success of your business. Such a wonderful concept – thanks for bringing me back into the memory keeping world. :)

  85. Julie S. says:

    We can’t wait to get these into our store in Oregon (Whimzee’s Scrapbook Studio), we have tons of customers asking about them! I really think these will help us get some more new customers in the store! Thanks so much for making it possible for us to carry these beautiful collections!!!

  86. Laurie T says:

    These kits are beautiful! Will the yellow baby kit be offered in a mini kit as well?

  87. […] Project Life to a store near you. AND they are releasing a TON of new editions. Check out their catalog with 7 new editions and 5 new mini kits. So many amazing new […]

  88. thearthurz says:

    I love the Kraft and Midnight editions! Completely wonderful!!

  89. Jeni says:

    Wow! Congratulations! Very exciting.
    So I’ve always been interested in PL, but until Seafoam I couldn’t get on board with the kits. For me, Midnight is another great addition: simple, clean, unfussy. The others are pretty, but after scrolling through them all I can’t really recall the difference between Jade, Honey, Kraft…the color schemes are so similar and to me they read a little on the loud, kitschy side. I say keep the modern, clean designs coming, especially when marketing to the younger demo’. Just my 2 cents. :) That being said, I am so excited to get going on my album for this year. I will be ordering Seafoam as soon as I can!

  90. Kimberly says:

    Well, decision making just got a little harder- for the better. This makes me want to postpone putting together my wedding album a few more months to wait for the wedding mini kit- love it! Even though there are so many GREAT choices coming out, I’m still going to go ahead order my kit this week. I know if wait too long I will keep procrastinating and it won’t get done:) But thanks so much for the preview and LOVE all the new products! Can’t wait til May!!

    On a side note- I asked my stepson what he would like to do new this year and his response was “Create a scrapbook with you”. Of course he totally melted my heart! So the childhood mini kit will be a must in our house here soon.

  91. Brooke Johannsen says:

    What an amazing way to brighten up the day we returned to work from Christmas Break! I LOVE it all! I am most excited about the pens, binders, and the Kraft kit. And the seasons. . .and the honey. . .oh my peas, I just love it all! You rock my socks off, Becky and team!! :)

  92. Lynn Coleman says:

    These are awesome! My favorite core kit is Cinnamon. Love the mini kits: wedding and seasons! Congrats and good luck at CHA. Thanks for making scrapbooking do-able for us busy working moms!

  93. Angie R says:

    How much will the mini kits cost as well as the mini binders?

  94. Christine says:

    I am at a loss for words except BEAUTIFUL.
    I am still in love with Seafoam as my #1 favorite. There are seveal others that are a close 2nd.
    There seems to be alot a buzz about Seafoam and almost nothing about Olive.
    Any Olive useres out there? Just curious.

    Becky I hope you and your team have a wonderful and successful time at CHA. Go knock it out of the park!

    • Heather Tierney says:

      I’m using Olive. Just ordered tonight on Amazon! It’s available to order with a ship date of Jan. 10 (Thursday). All the talk is about Seafoam, but I think that one is a bit too “mod” for me. Love the designs on Olive!

      So excited about these new releases! My birthday is in April, so I’m just going to ask for an Amazon gift card so I can get one of everything in the catalog! :)

  95. Marie says:

    Wonderful kits! Thank you Becky and all the designers! Just one question: will the kits also be available in May outside the US?

  96. Fiona Moore says:

    I love the ‘rain’ edition – all my favourite colours! Well done Becky – you have worked tirelessly! :-)

  97. Kim Fehseke says:

    One of each please! Can’t wait until May!!

  98. […] you haven’t been to Becky’s blog to see the full announcement, you should do that HERE. She is sharing the catalog PDF and all I can say is oh my freakin’ heck! How do they expect […]

  99. Susan Todd says:

    Really?????? I need a second job now!!!! LOLOLOLLLLL. Love it all

  100. Annette says:

    Becky, just got a email from Bluemoon scrapbooking and they said they are going to be carrying project life i love them am so excited it like Christmas day all over….love the new things i want the cinnamon, wedding, kids, oh whoa love the new blinders…

  101. Brenda says:

    Seriously, I think you rock and your team!!! Beautiful kits, you see their talent. It makes me want to go back to school and get another degree in graphic design! Can’t wait!!

  102. Robin Gibson says:

    Sooooooo AmAZing! All of them! Can’t wait to get more! JUST started my first year of PL, and I want to work on it every day now! LoL! Now I’m thinking which events/memories I can do with the new editions, and just stick with my Cherry kit for this year! Sooooo excited!! THANK YOU!

  103. tara says:

    So beautiful – I don’t know how to choose! You are amazing, Becky! Thank you so ch for working so hard to provide us with beautiful materials for our scrapbooking.

  104. Jennifer W. says:

    OMG!!! These are all so fabulous!!! I just bought some binders this week, so wished I had waited. Loving everything!!

  105. Eileen says:

    So many choices!! I love so many of them but have to get my hands on the season and holiday mini kits and those albums!!! The album colors are great – I need them all!!

  106. Cheryl P says:

    LOVE the Cinnamon Edition!!! Very excited for the mini kits and childhood editions. The seasonal kits would make a great gift for my mother-in-law. Very excited.

  107. Alison says:

    OMG how to choose just one…Im loving the Midnight, Jade and Kraft and love the mini seasons and celebrations soooooo nice cant wait till they are available, till then must work out what I LOVE the most. You have out done yourself Becky these are fantastic products

  108. Angel says:

    becky, these are just STUNNING!!! i just bought 2 kits (clementine n seafoam) for my first 2 years of Project Life and I’m feeling a little “ahh,, should i have?” coz these sets are AMAZING!! nonetheless i have two great sets to start off my year :)

  109. Kellie says:

    LOVE these! I would get Honey, Kraft, Blush and Jade if they were available in smaller portions. Maybe I’ll get the digital versions. THey look great!

  110. Michelle says:

    These are absolutely stunning. I am ordering the Seafoam kit a soon as it’s available but I know what I’ll be asking for when my birthday rolls around in May. I am in love with the Cinnamon binder and the midnight kit. They all look great!

  111. angela says:

    Looks great!! Looking forward to the follow-up post that answers some of the above questions. definitely hoping these will be carried on Amazon or online stores somehow. The new designs are really cool!

  112. Lesley VW says:

    Wow. Just wow.

    These are absolutely stunning! Thank you so so much for making memory keeping stress-free AND beautiful!

    I tried to read through all the comments to see if someone has already asked, so I apologize if it has. I noticed in the catalog that only one childhood kit was featured, and the neutral baby edition was also missing. Will the two other childhood editions and the neutral baby edition be discontinued once sold out? Thanks for letting us all know!

    • Julie in NZ says:

      I was just wondering the same thing Lesley. My ‘mayfield’ childhood mini kit arrived here Downunder today and it’s great – my girls are excited about filling out the cards themselves now they can both write :) Will all the childhood editions still be available in NZ? Thanks! p.s. I think the wedding kit is gorgeous!

  113. Joanne T says:

    These. Are. Beautiful. You outdid yourself! All of the kits and albums are gorgeous!

  114. Amy says:

    I have never been so happy to be so far behind in scrapbooking. I’ve got years worth of photos to scrap & the variety of kits I’ll be able to buy is amazing! I love them all. I’m still going with Seafoam for PL 2013 but I will be getting lots of the new kits to go back & scrap old stuff. Thank you so much for making such amazing products!

  115. Vanessa D says:

    First: Congratulations, Becky and everyone at Project Life for making this such a revolutionary way to scrapbook, and I am so happy for all the success you have had! Also, THANK YOU!! for all of the hard work from each and every one of you!

    Second: WOW. Love all these new editions – now it is so hard to choose! However, I noticed the current kits aren’t featured. Would it be wise to snatch one up now (such as clementine) if I do plan on continuing to use it? Also, how would an international customer obtain these new products? I’m very excited for May to arrive so I can order some – I sure hope that they will be available in some way to international customers!

  116. Krista says:

    Wow! These are all beautiful! I love them all!

    I’m hoping for some more page protector designs! Like 9 4×4 squares (love instagram pics!!), maybe a page that has 12 3×4 spots and definitely one that has 6 vertical 4×6’s. :)

    Keep up the good work!

    • Ebony S says:

      Great ideas Krista!! I was hoping for more page designs too. hopefully she sees your ideas and brings some out later in the year!:-)

  117. Saam Thorne says:

    All I can say is, WOW!

    And thank you.

    Inspired for 2013.

  118. Becky says:

    The new PL kits are beautiful!!! I am in love with cinnamon! Can’t wait to get some of them!!! Thanks for producing a wonderful product!!!

  119. Sharon Holesh says:

    Are the albums made by America Crafts? Why did you switch from We R Memory Keepers? Love all your products! Thank you.

  120. Gypsy Chaos says:

    well… I’m looking at the catalog. I hit Cinnamon. And fell totally completely in love. I love the colors, designs, everything. AND I absolutely love the taste and smell of cinnamon too! So I scurried back here to gush over Cinnamon.
    THEN
    I skimmed the comments. I’m seeing Midnight. Rain. WOW. Now I have no idea which one is going to insist on coming to my home!
    BUT
    I have a turquoise kit. And a budget – a new thing. And — oh heck, I’m going back to drool some more at the catalog. Glad it’s not paper, it’d be a wet falling apart mess.

  121. Scrapflicka says:

    Wow Becky, this is amazing! So much gorgeous things to chose from. I LOVE Cinnamon and really, really like Honey. Most of all I would like Wellington as a core kit. Can we have that please?
    And the 4×6 punch. My life would be perfect with the 4×6 punch. Thanks!

  122. Van Nguyen says:

    I do believe you just features my most favorite designers ever. Nisa’s rain edition is stunning! Liz’s Midnight edition is so gorgeous. Lori, Kerri…ack!!! Love love love!

  123. Susan C says:

    Wow, one of each please, they are all gorgeous. Thanks for so many great options. Becky, you rock!

  124. ana roat says:

    I love catalogs. And this one did not disappoint that’s for sure. Such a fun way to dream, play and then shop. I’m sure I will visit this catalog a few hundred times before I make a final decision but if I had to pick today, I’d go with Cinnamon all the way. It is so my style. Kerri Bradford is amazing! I’m willing to wait until May for this beauty…

    Thanks Becky and have a great time at CHA..!

  125. Aimee aka gellybean says:

    Totally like Lays potato chips these are! There is no way I will be able to pick just one!
    EEK! C’mon MAY!

  126. Carrie says:

    Love them all! Can so see the seasons mini album laying on an end table or coffee table…

  127. Lori says:

    Looks Amazing!

  128. Ronda Bateman says:

    I love them all and want one of each! Thanks to the awesome designers for the great product they created!

  129. Debbie says:

    Congratulations! Such inspiration! Would LOVE to see an Ali Edwards edition!

  130. Sarah says:

    So exciting!!!! Love it!

  131. Natasha Smith says:

    Love and want it all! GREAT WORK!

  132. Irene S says:

    I’m LOVING all of your releases! I can’t decide! It’s inspiring me to do more. I’m a big fan. The design team is awesome too!

  133. Fiona says:

    Love the new products! appologies if this is answered above but I was wondering if all aspects of the new lines will be available in Digital format? I’m specifically referring to the co-ordinating cardstock packs because it is nice to have digital formats of colour co-ordinated paper with a little “texture” (if that’s even possible in digital format! ;-) ) – can I suggest that it be included in the digital kits also?

    great work and thanks for the regular updates! good luck with CHA!

  134. Fiona says:

    Wow! I’m loving the Jade, Honey, Midnight and Kraft kits! I am a digital girl, but have been wanting to start an individual album for each of my kids. Now I’ll be waiting for these kits to come out and may even buy a physical kit. They are so amazing! Great job!

  135. Reader F says:

    I tried to post earlier but I can’t see my comment, so I thought I’d try again. First, congratulations on all your growth over the past couple of years. Everything looks great.

    I find it really interesting when you talk about the business side of your world. Do you mind telling us more about the timing of the release? I was a bit surprised that all of these new editions are being announced even though Seafoam and Olive are not here yet. There seemed to be a lot of excitement for those designs, and now it seems that we are moving on even before the official “launch”. Also, will you be doing a new product overview (I guess like the catalog above but for everything)? I follow your blog and tweets pretty closely, and I’m still super surprised by then tons of new stuff that’s coming out, so I think others could also use a brief overview. I sent some family to you website to check out the PL approach, but now there are so many add-ons that I had a hard time explaining it. Congratulations!

    Also …. I’m brand new to Project Life AND I just started blogging – 2014 is going to Rock! – where can I find the PL badge for my blog?

    Thanks!
