Project Life is coming to HSN!

Project Life HSN Becky & Lisa Photo

We’re all kind of freaking out around here. This is something we’ve been dying to reveal for quite some time … because something like this is many months in the making. But the time has finally come to tell you, friends, that Project Life is making its debut on television – exactly one month from today. Mark your calendar because March 25th is a big deal.

Why? Why is this such a big deal? Because on March 25th you will have the opportunity to purchase Project Life in a way that it is not offered anywhere else … at a price that you won’t find anywhere else. Today we wanted to shout this news from the rooftops, but I know what you really want is to see pictures, to know more, to understand what these products will be. And trust me, we have lots of information, pictures, and details to share with you in the coming weeks as we lead up to the big day.

If you don’t want to miss any of the details, be sure you’re tuning into my blog on a regular basis. If you want me to let you know whenever I have a new blog post, simply follow me on facebook, twitter, or instagram. I always give my readers a heads-up and you’ll always know what the blog post is about so you can decide if you’re interested in checking it out. Plus, my social sharing isn’t Project Life all the time. I promise I share other inspiration on a regular basis.  : )

a little bit of the story

I have to back up a bit and explain just a little history here, because that’s part of the excitement.

Lisa Bearnson and I go way, way, way back. Cliff-notes version is this: Lisa was the co-founder of Creating Keepsakes magazine – the premier scrapbooking publication. When she started this in late 1996 I was newly married, a full-time college student, and working. I randomly met her mother in church one day, made the connection that that’s who she was, and shared some of my work with her. Clarine passed my things onto Lisa, who then called me and invited me to write an article for the publication. I freaked out. Couldn’t believe it. And that one article turned into a snowball effect that led to an entire career that I never, ever, ever saw coming.

I was with Creating Keepsakes for 12 years. Lisa was essentially my boss – but she was first, my friend. And anyone who knows Lisa knows that she’s a pretty amazing friend. So I did my thing all those years … and she did her thing … and we were both under the Creating Keepsakes umbrella. Good times. Great experience. Then I decided nearly 3 and a half years ago to resign from CK to carry out my passion for developing solution-based products … which of course is when Project Life was born.

Meanwhile, Lisa stepped back from her professional pursuits the past few years to take a break and enjoy more time with her family. All the while, we’ve stayed in touch and enjoyed several visits (David and I certainly feel we don’t get enough time with Steve & Lisa Bearnson – they’re so fun!). Lisa was one of the first phone calls I made when we started our company. I couldn’t wait to share the news with her because I knew she would be so supportive. And she has been. Completely and utterly supportive.

But Lisa’s not just supportive in a “good for you!” way. Lisa genuinely loves and uses Project Life to keep up with her memory-keeping … and has given it as a gift to friends many times. She believes in me. She believes in my product. She believes in what I’m doing. And dang it, I’m getting all choked up now.

Okay – so let’s fast-forward and wrap up this story. As you know, we created a partnership with American Crafts in October 2012 – a very awesome partnership. Around that same time, Lisa was strongly considering a television comeback … and re-entry into the scrapbooking world. Obviously we had several conversations and here we are today. Lisa Bearnson is making her debut with a brand-new show on HSN (Home Shopping Network). She will be selling lots of fun & cool scrapbooking and paper-crafting products on March 25th – but the BIG DEAL of the day – they call it the “Today’s Special” on HSN … is going to be Project Life.

So … yeah. We’re all pretty excited.

Some of you already have and use Project Life. Awesome. What we’re offering on HSN that day isn’t available right now, and it won’t be available in this kind of format for this kind of price – at least not for a very long time. So it’ll be worth tuning in. Tune into my blog as I share pictures and information over the coming weeks. And of course tune into HSN on March 25th. And tell your friends who you know would benefit from knowing about Project Life, that this is something they will want to know about.  ; )

Eeeeeeek!

  30. Lisa says:

    I was checking all over HSN for Project life cause you said the 25th and I thought I’d get some shopping done today. Then I went back and re-read the date…March 25th. Guess I will have to wait a month lol. EXCITING NEWS though. Love having you and Lisa together again!

  31. Brenda says:

    Will we be able to watch this online? We don’t have television. Would love to see this though. And is the promotion for American Residents only or for everyone? Thanks for any info you can give me.

    Lisa mentioned on a youtube video (BYU business class) that she may be returning to a shopping channel in Florida and I knew right away that she was referring to HSN. So cool that you and Lisa are getting married lol. Congrats all around!

  39. Susan C says:

    I can’t wait, Lisa inspired me to start scrapbooking with her early QVC shows and I have missed her shows so much. Now, not only will she be back on TV but she will be offering special PL products! Be still my heart.

  40. Gwen says:

    AWESOME!!!!!

  41. Nicole says:

    Super exciting!

  42. Ali says:

    so excited for you and Lisa, so sad for all us international PLers. Is there any way we can order via CraftHouse and have them ship all the NZ and Aussie stuff en masse?

  43. Christine says:

    Can you speak to what versions of PL will be available? Will they be versions exclusive to HSN? Or will they be the same versions currently available?

  44. congrats becky! this is such a great time for you and PL! so excited for you! will be tuning in!

  45. Susan says:

    I get free shipping with Amazon if my order is over 25 dollars. HSN charge shipping fees. That could get expensive.

    • Emma says:

      I guess you can still get it through amazon then?

    • MagiChop says:

      HSN typically offers either free shipping & handling or reduced shipping & handling for their Today’s Special. The trend I’ve noticed is the spendier the item, the higher likelihood they offer free shipping to sweeten the deal. Like when I purchased my Cricut Expression for $320 (4 cartridges and wireless adapter), the shipping was free.
      Also, they offer Buy More Save More for crafting days… which means when you purchase more products in a specific category (crafting) during the set 24hr period, you pay full shipping on the highest shipping cost, then HALF shipping on every thing else in that category. Full details here… http://www.hsn.com/cs/faqs/default.aspx?p_page=1&p_new_search=1&p_search_text=save%20shipping

      I too am an Amazon Prime member, and I’m not defending HSN, but the more you know about what you’re paying on shipping, the more it might be worth it to give them a shot.

  46. So fun! At first I thought there’s no way I’d be able to tune in since I’m a teacher and work during the normal work week. But then I realized that March 25th is the first day of our Easter break!! Woohoo!! I’ll definitely be tuning in and seeing what you all do. Better yet, my birthday is the 21st, so I’ll have some birthday cash to spend on Project Life supplies! Can’t wait!

  47. kat-in-texas says:

    So happy and excited for your new venture together!! Can’t wait to tune in….sorta late, but y’all are worth it! :)

  48. TerriOMG says:

    Oh, I am so excited to see Lisa again on t.v! I’ve followed her and Creative Keepsakes for years. I adore both of you, and will not miss this!

  49. Shawn Wenrich says:

    I am so excited to have Lisa back with us. Project Life on HSN, so awesome, you’ve made my day!

  50. Denise says:

    Wheeeeeeee that it’s happening, but sad that it’s on a week day because I work. :(

  51. Kim E says:

    I am doing the happy dance! What a great opportunity for you, but I can once again Lisa, who is the person who inspired me to get into scrapbooking. HSN made a brilliant decision on this one. I watch and shop there, but every single time I sit there quietly wishing Lisa was on board.

  52. Minnie says:

    Pleeeeeeease don’t forget about us project lifers who live around the world!!!!!!! We love new products and sales too. How can we get in on this action??

  53. Heather says:

    Took classes from both of you at a CKU in Provo. I am super excited to see you both together again!

  54. THIS is SOOOOO exciting Becky!!! Congratulations!! I just adore you!!

  55. Kim Stewart says:

    oh my! Lisa B., HSN and Project Life all at the same time!! What could be better??

  56. Erika Clark says:

    That’s wonderful news, and I love hearing the story about how you met! Lisa Bearnson was the reason I first got involved in scrapbooking 12 years ago, and I still have bits of the kit I bought from QVC to get started :) I’ll be watching and cheering you both on!

  57. Amazing amazing amazing! I never watch HSN but will surely tune in to see what amazing new products you’ve got there!

  58. Marge Guthrie says:

    Wow – this is GREAT!!!! For both you and Lisa (and, of course, for Project Life). I was so sad when Lisa left QVC, but as a now fan of HSN, I can’t wait to see her (and you!).

  59. Lois says:

    Eeeeeeek! (my thought EXACTLY!) ;-)
    OK, so I’ve already purchased the PL core sets, as well as everything digital…but I.am.SO.EXCITED about this new deal on HSN too! I’ve already set my phone calendar to send me as many reminders as possible so I don’t forget! LOL

  60. Tracy says:

    Congratulations Becky! I already have it in my phone!! Can’t wait!

  61. MagiChop says:

    My FIRST purchase from QVC was the Lisa Bearnson card making kit. I was saddened to learn that Lisa was leaving QVC. I think they made a big mistake by not keeping pace with Scrapbooking to the tune of having most trend setters migrate over to HSN: now Lisa Bearnson, Anna Griffin, Claudine Hellmuth, We R Memory Keepers, and Martha Stewart. As far as I see it, HSN is the place to be for the best crafting deals around. Looking forward to it! Welcome, Lisa!!! ☺

  62. Lisa F. says:

    WAHOO!!! I’m a regular HSN shopper and had seen that Lisa B. was going to have an HSN “Today’s Special” in March. Now that I know it’s going to be a ‘Project Life’ item, I can’t wait! SOLD!!!!!! :o)

  63. amy says:

    Why HSN? Why not QVC?

  64. Natalie says:

    Love project life and HSN!!!!! How perfect.

  65. ginger says:

    Honestly, blech. Way to tank Project Life quickly– mass crap market quality. Blech. Becky’s back on the hype tour.

  66. […] Check out THIS blog post and you’ll be all […]

  67. Carrie says:

    I am SO excited at this news!!!! I have followed you & Lisa for years. I just bought my first project life kit and love it. But then again, I’ve had your other kits and have always been over the moon with the outcomes. I used to watch and purchase products from you & Lisa from another shopping channel and was so sad when you were no longer on. Thanks SO much for coming back to TV. Can’t wait!!!!!!

  68. […] hybrid project using digital layouts and the pocket protectors. I’m waiting for March 25 for the HSN segment for my album and page […]

  69. Jessie Hawthorne says:

    I’m so Happy You are BACK! I Love how you so things and teach us.
    Happy, Jessie

  70. Donna M. Looney says:

    I am thrilled!!! I have been a huge “Becky Higgins” fan and a “Lisa Bearnson” fan for many years and I’m so happy to see the two of you again. Congratulations to you both!

  71. Kathy Milne says:

    Two awesome ladies!! One awesome product! Can’t wait! Welcome back Lisa. Looking froward to future episodes.

  72. So happy! Sounds like great fun and a wonderful thing for you and everyone involved. I can’t wait to see what’s coming.

  73. Leslie Davis says:

    Becky I am so thrilled for you. Having been involved in the past with shopping channels, I know what a big deal it is to be a “today’s special”. I live in Canada but am going to have it shipped to my US address and will have to patiently wait til I return to the US in the Fall to get it. Lol Good luck with it all. Remember, you’re not talking to millions of people, you are talking to one person sitting on their living room couch! Hugs and blessings.

  74. henrietta says:

    It would be nice if instead of touting new editions with new sales methods, we could actually buy stuff (albums, textured cards, etc) for the current editions. I’ve been hooked into Project Life and now am sorely disappointed at the lack of availability. I’m honestly afraid to see what happens when HSN gets ahold of it all.

  75. I view something really special in this site.
