new product announcements – supporting products

StorageTote

This is the 3rd and final blog post today that announces the all-new Project Life products that will be officially launching at the CHA trade show in a few weeks from now. Be sure to check out the 2 posts before this where we shared sneak peeks of the 2 new Core Editions (yay for 2 more amazing graphic designers that have joined the Project Life family!) – as well as 3 brand-new Mini Kits.

Alright – let’s dig in to the last of our exciting announcements (for today)!

6×8 Albums and Pages

You asked for it! The Project Life 6×8 Faux Leather Album offers the quality and workmanship of the 12×12 traditional Project Life albums in a new, convenient size. Choose from six beautiful colors and preserve your memories in the beloved “Project Life way” – now on a smaller scale with more flexibility! We love, love, love our Mini Albums and we’ll keep carrying those, but this format will allow for the 2-ring option that offers a little more flexibility when you need it.

The coordinating 6×8 Page Protectors are made to last as long as your memories. Made with high-quality, ultra-clear plastic that’s archival safe, just like all of our other Page Protectors and Photo Pocket Pages. There are 4 convenient configurations to fit the new 6 x 8 album.

Project Life Storage Tote

Yesssss! I KNOW, right?! Finally – a place to store ALL those Project Life cards with your accessories and pictures if you want! I can’t wait to show you more of this. It’s pure organization awesomeness, from the adjustable section dividers, to the portability when you want to take this on-the-go! Just wait until you see more. It’s even cooler than it seems.  : )

StorageTote3×4 and 4×6 Nesting Metal Dies

This is a fantastic solution to getting the perfect 4×6 and 3×4 cut-outs – complete with rounded corners (with the PL corner radius), and designed to work with personal die-cutting machines (ex – Sizzix and Cuddlebug).

Project Life Washi Tape

There’s lot of fun, colorful, decorative washi tape out there. I wanted to be sure we provide more neutral options, particularly for those who are working on heritage Project Life projects, or for those who prefer a more minimal look. You know how some odd-sized photos just don’t fit “perfectly” in the 4×6 pockets? This is a fantastic solution: Simply tape the photo to a 4×6 PL card with our Washi Tape, and there you go! I’ll show examples of this soon (and I also demonstrated this during my creativeLIVE course).

PS – The colors are white, tan, and grey (just like our stickers). The “tan” looks really orange here but I’ve seen it in person and it’s really tan.  ; )

Photo Overlays

Some of you will remember that we sold these on HSN earlier this year. They flew out the door, so we’re happy to bring them back and make them available to lots of retailers – not exclusively for HSN anymore. The designs are clever, fun, classy, and everything in between. Because that’s the awesomeness of graphic designer Kerri Bradford - one of our personal favorites.

If you’re not as familiar with these, they are clear and designed to place over a 4×6 photo, which then slips into a Project Life pocket. It’s like adding a brush in Photoshop, except it’s a tangible product! Very cool.

4×4 Grid Cards

Exactly what it sounds like. We’ve taken our classic Project Life Grid Cards and made them available in square 4×4 format (and double-sided, of course). The following Photo Pocket Pages have 4×4 pockets: Designs J, K, M, N, O, P, Q, R, as well as the HSN exclusive pages from the Just Add Color Edition.

Side note: That full JAC collection with everything included in the kit, is currently on sale big time – $29.95. That’s kind of insane, considering that’s the price of just a Core Kit alone. Snatch it up before they’re gone!

3×4 and 4×6 Cream Lined Cards

White is the all-time best neutral ever, but the cream color really does lend itself better to certain projects and products. There are some editions of Project Life that really look better with this cream as opposed to white. We’re happy to provide the option.  : )

Okay – that’s it! I’ll stop there. I do have to say one more thing: I know that many of you know this already because of your loyalty over the years, but many of the products we develop are in direct response to listening to what you want. We love hearing from you! We value your opinions! We can’t do everything that everyone wants of course, but we most definitely combine what you express as your memory-keeping needs, with our own ideas of solution-based products that can help.

I’d say we make a great team – you and me.  ; )

Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all the new products! As usual, I’ll be sharing more – especially on social media - facebook | twitter | instagram. More pictures, more details, and definitely behind-the-scenes fun as we prepare for and attend CHA, where we will show all of this off in person to retailers. Be sure to encourage your local retailer to carry what you want them to have available in your favorite local shop. We will be having stuff on our shopping cart as well, which will soon be open. More details on that forthcoming.

    Becky — all three posts are so exciting! Can’t even express how grateful we are for all of your innovativeness (if that’s a word) and how great you are about listening to your customers. Product development must keep you so busy, I can’t even imagine. Thanks for the “sneak peek” — can’t wait to see more details. Hope you, your family and your staff have a wonderful and blessed holiday season.

    I’m looking forward to all the new editions to the line. I came across PL 12/5/13 and thanks to some timely sales, coupons, and Amazon I have acquired 7 core kits and 3 theme card kits in that time span. Probably don’t need all that but I like the variety and plus I plan to get some friends hooked by sharing. I call it my Super Getting Started with Project Life kit. I was also able to watch the Creative Live broadcast that looped this past weekend and again that was so timely and helpful for me. Thanks for the great products you and your team produce. It has helped me get back into scrapbooking and documenting Family life.

    Love the 4×4 pocket stuff!! Will the Just Add Color Edition come out in retails stores or is that an HSN only? And perhaps I’ve missed seeing this somewhere before, but are plastics already available in 4×4 and 2×2 sizes? I tried to find somewhere that showed all the different configurations of plastics in pictures online but haven’t been able to?
    Love project life and all the new products :)

    Ok you’re KILLING me here. OMG! Forget Christmas! I just want to PL, now, everyday. I don’t want to clean, bake, cook, shop, wrap, decorate. I just want to keep looking at these awesome products. Hold on a minute while I pick my jaw up off of the floor. Ok, better. You had me a ‘neutral’ washi tape. Neutral! LOVE LOVE LOVE Cream grid cards? Yes, please and thank you! I didn’t know about the overlays (somehow missed that one) but can’t wait to play with those. The storage case? Why you just made this organizational OCD little heart of mine go pitter patter. As for the square grid cards…I haven’t ventured into Instagram much (only because I have thousands of printed and digital photos I’m dealing with and my kids are grown so I’m working backwards). But! I have tons of my folks’ old black and white square photos and old square poloroids and those square pockets/grid cards are the answer to my dilemma of what to do with those odd shaped photos. Well, looks like another broke 2014. LOL Thank you for all these awesome photos. I didn’t even mention the 6×8 albums…I have to think on that one. I’m really digging the mini albums right now and I’ve started a few 12×12 which, I’ve long thought were just too big to fit comfortably on most standard shelves (unless you get the Expidit or have custom made shelves cuz by gosh do I hate when the albums hang off the shelves!!!). So I totally get the 6×8…just not sure I want 3 sizes on my shelves…there goes that OCD again. But seriously, THANKS for bringing out more stuff people asked for! Happy Ho Ho Ho!

    I’m so thankful for all your new products! They’re amazing! The first product I will buy next year will be storage box, because my containers are open and I can’t take them away for a crop. Your’s is stylish and seems to solve my problem exactly. I would like to use the cream cards from today on too! They matching perfectly the “winter” themed card-package, right? Maybe I can wait for them to Journal my Christmas bakery a.s.o. (just putting down some notes somewhere else)?

    OMGosh Becky, you and your team have out done yourselves, thinking I am going to have to get another shelving unit and figure out where to put it for all these new goodies, I just cant keep up with you any more. I am afraid that my PL has turned in to collecting the products instead of getting my albums done but never fear it will all be put to good use as gifts and such, I have been turning a lot of my family and friends on to this method of scrapbooking and they are loving it. I have to laugh when I think of you planning on just one new kit a year that sure morphed into something else didn’t it. Thank you for all the new items you have been producing especially the organizational case that is right up my ally. Donna

    Oooh, I am so excited about the 6×8 albums! I am seriously considering using that size for 2014. I’ve done all digital for the past two years (printing 8×8 or 10×10 photobooks), but I’m ready for a change. I think I might actually go hybrid occasionally if I decide to try the 6×8 size. I’m wondering if the holes in the page protectors will line up with the rings in the Simple Stories Snap albums. They would also make neat inserts in a 12×12 album, but I’m guessing the holes would not line up for that. Anyway… exciting stuff! :)

      Oh, P.S. Would love to see a label holder on the spine of the 6×8 albums. I’m a sucker for label holders! :)

    Becky… you are AMAZING! PL has actually gotten me back to scrapping and preserving memories over the last year… and I am so grateful for that and excited to see the new products… especially the tote (I’ve been DYING for something with a LID to store my extra cards in!) and the photo overlays! If you ever open a store down in the East Valley I’d SO work there! Just love everything you do and your Creative Live was so helpful… one of my goals this year is organizing and BACKING UP my photos!
