new product announcements – supporting products
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. : )
3×4 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. ; )
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.
