Project Life New Editions

Not only do we have four more new Project Life® Editions to introduce today (isn’t that Southern Weddings Edition beautiful??), but we also have three ladies to introduce who are designing products for us for the very first time! All of these goodies will be on the show floor in Anaheim starting tomorrow and we can hardly wait for retailers to see them and bring them into their shops! We’ll be showing you just a few images from these collections so you can get a sense of the design style and color palette, but we’ll be sharing even more of the full product line straight from our booth at CHA over the next few days.

Value Kits + Themed Cards

We also have new Value Kits and Themed Cards to share today, and one set is extra special because we have finally been able to have Cathy Zielske design a product for us! (I’ve been trying to make that happen for years.)

Cathy Zielske Value Kit


You heard that right … we have a Value Kit coming soon that was designed by the one and only Cathy Zielske and we could not be more thrilled about that! A long time leader in the scrapbooking industry, Cathy is bringing her clean + simple style to the Project Life line with a Value Kit that contains silver foil and wood veneer pieces.

Clear Themed Cards

A bit of a twist on our regular Photo Overlays, these Clear Themed Cards are made to stand on their own or can be paired with a basic card or solid cardstock for added impact.

  1. Oh my…… they are all awesome kits. The confetti is on my list because I love using bright colors in most of my books. However, I love all 3 core kits so on my list they go. :) I love Cathy Zielske’s designs and that will be my first Value kit to purchase but again…….I’m certain that I will be buying all of them. I love working with all of the kits in each book that I make each year. Thank you for having so many diverse kits and thank you for helping me to spend my money. Ha-ha.

    Love Vanessa’s handwriting/ brush script so I’m super excited for hers!!

  6. Sally Kemp says:

    Can’t wait to get one (or two) of these! Will the physical kits be available to order on your website, or will they be retail only?

  7. Natasha Klein says:

    love them! any going to be in the app? !!!!!!!!

  8. Jaime says:

    Love them all!!!! Will they be available digitally?!?

  9. Kelly says:

    So excited about all of these amazing products!

  10. Stefanie says:

    Love that you’re having more 4×4 cards!!

  11. Helen Walsh says:

    Same question from me too, anything for the app? X

  12. Stefanie says:

    And please tell me you’re going to have a new baby edition soon!!

  13. Christy a says:

    Love the high five edition!

  14. Minxy says:

    Some lovely new collections, better start saving some pennies :p

  15. Tammy says:

    The Clear Themed Cards are a wonderful idea! They will be so fun to play with and use!

  16. Jenny B. says:

    These are all very pretty. I would love to see some more kits with primary, boy-friendly colors, like red, yellow, blue, and green (think Lego colors). Having two boys with another boy on the way, I just don’t use much pink. :)

  17. Amber Chapais says:

    Just lovely. . I can’t wait to get my hands on these. I’m so excited.

  18. Helen says:

    Love the Inspire edition: would really like to purchase….off to figure out if you ship out of the US….(at a reasonable shipping cost)….

  19. Kelly says:

    These are all very pretty…. But so feminine. Would love to see more boy/masculine oriented themes and colours (less pink and pastels please!).

  20. Kris F says:

    Agreed, would like to see more masculine or even general colors : kraft, tans, grey, blues, yellow, and black. So many kits have pink and kid -like. Many of us do PL with teens/tweens or young adults. Thats why the midnight edition was such a favorite for many of us. Started scrapbooking with young kids, continued with project life. Now that they are getting older and every page is not about them, would like to see some more along the lines of midnight.

  21. Katherine says:

    I know you had mentioned that there are new baby kits down the road, but will there be any new baby kits released at CHA?

  22. ChelseaL says:

    All are nice, but agree about too much pink and cute.
    Please think about a kit for your customers who have teenagers — who were at this cute young kid phase 3- 5 years ago but now our kids are in middle school and high school. More general colors/graphics/updated feel etc. I agree Midnight was the right feeling……multi purpose not kid like. They all look lovely here but have the same customer in mind. Cathys small value kit is the exception.

  23. Karen C says:

    Love Cathy’s kit! It and a couple of the other ones are on my want list.

  24. Sarah K says:

    I think Cathy’s kit will look fabulous with her Move More Eat Well cards!

  25. I agree with a lot of the ladies above. NOT ENOUGH BOY COLORS!!! Navy, Kelley green, Red, Yellow, Orange and not muted colors either-bold like boys! I also agree with one of the other comments above about more adult because the scrapbook with teens or young adults-and what about the people with no children? I am also still waiting on a military edition! I sent in tons of suggestions-and not for cards that say Marines or Army-but funny things like PCS time again that every military family knows and uses-there are 28,000 military/dependants just where we live overseas-your missing an entire market by not doing these!

  26. Fran Bollinger says:

    I agree about boy colors………but love the new designs! I would like to see page protectors like the “squared off” digital templates for 4 x 4 and 2 x 2 photos—-I have a ZINK HappY and would love to incorporate those photos!

  27. Alison S. says:

    All of these kits are so pretty! I just wish I didn’t have only boys so I could use more than the occasional pink in my scrapbooks. I love seeing all your new products. Can’t wait to use them. :)

  28. Monica says:

    Cheers to Vanessa….I love her kit!

  29. Monica says:

    Cheers to Vanessa….I love her kit!

  30. Beth says:

    All of the kits are gorgeous. I am really loving the value kits.

  31. Veronica says:

    Beautiful….but way too much of a pink, girlie, frilly, pastel theme throughout them all. Not so fitting for a house full of young adult males. Can hardly wait till ProjectLife does more older, primary, dark and masculine for the many many many men in my life.

  32. Chris Acker says:

    So thrilled about the Cathy kit!

  33. A&M Momma says:

    All the kits are beautiful, but I am most excited about Cathy’s kit!!! Also excited about the 8×8 products. :)

  34. lydia says:

    OMG…LOVE these new collections… can’t wait to get some

  35. Robin L. says:

    It all looks amazing, can’t wait to use them!

  36. Nicole says:

    they are GORGEOUS!!!!!! I can’t wait to see then in the shop section :)

  37. Sharon says:

    Please get Cathy to do an entire Edition! Also, when are the new Baby Editions coming?

  38. MichelleGB says:

    Fabulous new additions! Love, love, love that CZ is releasing one and I’m contacting my LSS to preorder it today!

  39. Pam Bassett says:

    I agree with the boys, middle school, high school themes! And we are not a military family but I think that should be a top priority.

  40. Carolyn says:

    First of all I want to thank you for the app! This is what I’ve been looking for and I think it will allow me to keep up with my Project life book this year. I have also used the app to work on other pages and it has really brought me back to scrapbooking! I am a huge fan of Cathy’s I hope some of her items will be available in the app kits. I can’t get enough kits, keep em’ coming!

  41. Lisa says:

    Vanessa’s kit NEEDS to be available for purchase on the app along with the bold & gold value kit! The app has been INVALUABLE for me to keep up with the memories for my 2 kids under the age of 4, but I need more choices! Thanks

  42. Lisa says:

  43. Pamela Anderson says:

    I love the new Cathy Zielske Value Kit – those bright colors and bold patterns are perfect for documenting the antics of my 3 little boys! For my little princess I am loving the Mix & Match and Bold & Gold editions!

  44. Jenny B. says:

    Yay! I’m not alone in thinking that we’ve had too much pink going on lately (not just here at BH, but all over the scrapbooking community). :) I know this is not a forum for suggestions, and I hope the designers of these beautiful kits don’t feel bad that they’re not necessarily making everyone happy with their lovely designs that I’m sure they put countless hours of thought and work into, because they are all very pretty. That said, I have a suggestion! :) I would love to see a baby’s first year core kit with happy, bright colors, and not pastels. I’m thinking something along the lines of the Aqua Edition (which is my current fave), but with monthly baby stat cards. Also, I’ve mentioned this before, but I would LOVE it if the digital kits came with true 3×4 and 4×6 sized cards with square corners. That would be SO much more versatile for the digital scrapbookers. Hope you all are having fun at CHA! :)

    • Jenny B. says:

      For some reason, my smileys are showing up in odd places in the paragraph in my comment above. Feel free to ignore them, but just note that I was happy about what I was saying. Ha!

  45. Giselle says:

    CZ & PL – a match made in heaven! And the one I’ve been waiting for. Please tell me that they will be available in the UK?!!

  46. Carolina says:

    Absolutely adore Celeste’s value kit… It’s just beautiful!

  47. Kathy says:

    Love everything, looks like 2015 is going to be a good year!

  48. Teresa says:

    Love these new editions – so beautiful! I’m going to have to echo what some of the other posts said – I am looking for more boy colors – as a mom of 3 little boys (6,4, and 1). my need for pink is limited at best. I love the look of the new products but it’s hard to use at our house! ;-). Splashes of pink are ok – but most of these have pink as a dominat color within the palette. Love Cathy’s edition – wish it were a full one rather than a value kit. That’s exactly the type of colors/style that works well with boys. Keep up the good work! I’m starting year 5 of project life and am still in love! Thanks for all you do – always looking forward to what’s coming.

    • Veronica says:

      I agree….and when those boys get older, like they tend to do with time, you are scrapbooking 20, 21 and 22 year old boys like me and pink, cutesy, pretty really doesn’t cut it any more.

  49. Ann says:

    I love all the new products. I am with others on wishing we could see more colors geared toward boys, however my biggest request is that when they release the info they also let us know if/when it is going to be available in digital format & in the app so we dont have to keep asking over & over.

  50. Melissa Shultz says:

    I really like Inspire and High Five. They are gorgeous!

  51. RachelBrooks says:

    Don’t forget us golden agers! Heritage albums,, through the years, muter colors, etc.

  52. Jan says:

    When are the baby kits going to be replaced? I need them for baby showers! :-)

  53. Lisa Dearen says:

    Gorgeous every one!! I can’t wait to get my hands on the Mix + Match and the Bold + Gold kits – they go perfectly with the gold striped albums I bought last month. Way to go amazing designers! And keep the pink coming, I for one can’t get enough. xoxo

  54. Jackie says:

    My favourite is the Confetti edition. I just love bright colours in all my albums!

  55. Lauren says:

    LOVE BH AND PROJECT LIFE. I also love that you guys continue to come out with new products; it’s never boring! :) But I also want to echo what others are saying about the abundance of pink/girly stuff. I like it but I feel that there needs to be more boy-friendly stuff. What I am MOST missing is PURPLE. The old Rain edition came close to fulfilling my purple cravings but it seems like ever since then there has not been one kit that features purple AT ALL. Not sure if you guys have something against purple or what. I am just so tired of flowers and pink.

  56. Katrina Blair says:

    Beautiful, so many new ones to go on my wish list. My top picked is “Inspired.” When will be able to purchase them including the “Inspired” album? Did you mention “Southern Wedding?” or was my ears hearing things?

  57. Candy says:

    Cathy Zielski –it doesn’t get better than that although they are all amazing

  58. Rhia says:

    Finally a kit that has silver foil! Can’t wait to get it.

  59. Sue WNY says:

    WOW… I am SO happy to see 4″x4″ Design Cards available for the new Collections! YAY
    I’m loving the Confetti Core Kit and the Note to Self Value Kit the most which will be my first acquisitions when they become available then I’ll work my way through some of the other new releases… I agree with so many others who mentioned enough of the watercolor muted pastels – how many of those kits can we possibly use? and… YES… I agree with another reply who said… WHERE is the PURPLE??????????? Happy Core Kit touched on a light version of it but not on enough cards! =)

  60. mary says:

    They are all very cute! I do agree with a lot of the ladies on here that there should be a few more kids that are all boy, color wise and so on. Also more sport mini kits, volleyball! I have 2 boys and 2 girls and the girls defiantly have way more options then the boys, I have to pick and choose a few cards out of each kit to put in my boys books, it would be amazing to have a bigger kit selection just for them!:)

  61. Cortney Chambers says:

    For some reason, my comment on IG is not working. I love Project Life, but I have a big piece of feedback that I really hope you see!
    I haven’t read all the comments above, but I do think there are some that may be saying the same thing I’m about to!
    I have 5 sons and I have purchased around 10 core kits. There are nearly zero BLUE themed cards! Even the baby boy kit is nearly all yellow. I have all the ones that are supposed to be more masculine and yet there’s no just good ole blue to be found. There’s a ton of blueish green tones, but that gets old quick.
    I would love to see a kit that was truly just “true blue”, not turquoise, not aqua, etc., just classic cobalt & navy blue! Even if it was a mini kit similar to the chalk one that was all blue, it would be a great addition.
    I really hope to see a BLUE kit soon! Thanks!

  62. Gypsy Chaos says:

    I’ve read the many comments about adding “boy” and “masculine” colors — here’s a different slant: NOT ALL WOMEN WANT PINK, PURPLE, ETC. Break out of the rigid gender stereotypes, Becky – it’s time to lead the way AGAIN.

    There are so many colors in the rainbow….. I know that darker colors require more ink which means higher production costs. But really?? If you truly want to make memory keeping easier for all, you need to expand your color palette.

  63. Sheri Jacoby says:

    I love EVERYTHING!!!!!!!! I am a PINK girl and I have a daughter who will be thirteen in less than 2 months. I am very behind and I am going to try and use the app. I have been doing traditional scrapbooking and I have been struggling with project life. I’m going to see if I can try and incorporate a little bit of everything to get caught up. Hoping to see a lot of this go digital and hoping I can use it in the app. It is all so beautiful, keep it coming.

  64. Diana says:

    Woo whoooooo!!!!!!!
    Yay!!!!! Yay!!!!!!
    I’m so excited I just can’t hide it come on release it now so we can all go crazy again.

    Thanks to all of you for making this big for us

  65. young c says:

    Love when new releases come out! Really wish there were some more neutral / set for boys. I have 2 boys, so lots of primary colors, or something more neutral would be great! Maybe next time?

  66. Margaret says:

    I love Celeste’s Adventure edition. Will this come out in digital? And if so, when?
