Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.

David and I saw the movie Joy on one of our date nights several months ago.

Oh my goodness.

Just adding that link to this blog post and watching that trailer again made me cry. I’m not even kidding. I realize it’s “just another movie” for most, but this story struck all sorts of chords with me. Aside from the witty character development and beautifully executed film style (I’m no movie critic; just enjoyed the story)… I was feeling ALL the feels in that movie, which took me completely by surprise. I honestly didn’t know what the movie was going to be about. I had never heard of Joy Mangano. I didn’t even know there was going to be a connection to HSN! The feelings stirred up were mostly because of some similarities to my own story in business. Not quite the same family disfunction (ha!) … but the way that Joy had to work so hard, valiantly fight the fight to protect her business, and stand her ground when others were trying to bring her down? #InsertMoreTears And can we talk about the deer-in-headlights scene when she went on-air for the first time? Yes! Yes! That totally happens!

Oh for real. It’s like I was re-living so many of my own experiences. So after I had a good cry, you know what I did? I kid you not… I told my colleagues that I was ready. I was ready to sell my product on HSN. Sign me up. Let’s do this! Aaaand I went back to the theatre to see the movie a second time and brought my team.

In just a few short days, I will be headed to Florida to go on air at HSN – Home Shopping Network. I’ll be selling Project Life®! You guys. There’s not even an emoji for these mixed emotions I’m having. Back in the days of Creating Keepsakes, I was actually an on-air guest on another shopping channel several times… selling other company’s products. So crazy. So stressful. So much pressure. Kind of fun and kind of exhilarating in a way. Just over 3 years ago Project Life made its debut on HSN for the first time. At that time, I personally wasn’t ready for extra travel and more commitments. My friend Lisa Bearnson was the on-air guest that sold our product and she did a fantastic job.

So, enough of the backstory. Let’s move on to what I’ll be selling on HSN, shall we? And seriously — will you watch? Will some of you tune in and be nervous with me? Will you shop? Thank you in advance for your support. Seriously!

I’ll be showcasing and selling 2 new Project Life Core Kits, 2 Value Kit bundles, and a bundle of Photo Overlays! The Modern Core Kit and Little Moments Core Kit have never been seen before, but we’re giving you a sneak peek right here.


Tune in to HSN on Wednesday, May 4!

    Becky, I’m soooooo excited for you. Like many others, I’ve been following you since the magazine days, so I feel as if we’re old friends! I use both physical Project Life and the android app and it has brought back my passion for scrapbooking. It’s such a wonderful feeling to complete pages and be well on the way to completing albums. Keep up the fantastic work!

  8. Leticia says:

    I’m so happy to hear about this. I bought my first Project Life set that day when It was presented by Lisa. I was hoping that HSN would wise up and give Project Life more exposure and air time. I’ll be shopping and watching. Would love to see more value kits for sale on the air that day.

    Oh boy…my credit card will be burning on May 4th. I live Project Life and it simplicity. Embellish a little, a lot or not at all. Currently working on 4 albums for family members for Christmas. Could never of tackled this without Project Life. I bought Blush and Jade quite awhile ago from HSN but it just sat there until recently. If I had known then what I know now!! Can’t wait until next week!!!!

  15. Trish S. says:

    Congrats! This is very exciting! Will these kits be exclusive to HSN?

  16. Leisa says:

    Think of HSN as just a way to reach all of your current crafty friends to let us see what’s new AND a way to teach new crafty friends about the wonderful world of Project Life 😊

  17. Karen says:

    I bought my first Project Life kits on HSN. Loved Lisa’s presentation of them. Many, many, many kits later, I am still a Project Lifer. Looking forward to seeing you on HSN. You will do great!

  18. Kellie says:

    You will be wonderful! Breathe, smile that infectious grin & show everyone what you developed!!! A product line to be so proud of!

    Will be watching on May 4!

  21. Brenda says:

    I will so join you & I will buy!!

  22. Karen says:

    I love Project Life, it has made it so I get more scrapbooks started. I always felt like I wasn’t creative enough doing pages and that made it take forever to just complete a page. Now I can embellish or not. The cards are beautiful on there own. Currently I started the android app to do this year and I am staying current. This let’s me do the physical project life to play catch up on all the past years. Thank you Becky !!!

  23. Nicole says:

    That’s so exciting!! I’m so happy for you – you’re the best!! 💞 And May the 4th be with you!! 👏

    • Nicole says:

      You did so awesome! 👏 And I love that my husband nonchalantly walked past the TV and said, “Hey, it’s Becky Higgins!” Lol 😂 Cracked me up. Guess he sees and hears about you just a little bit, lol.

  24. Eveline van Heijst says:

    You can do it!
    I’ll try try to watch if I can find the HSN channel on my TV

  25. Lisa B says:

    Every time I see you speak your passion for memory-keeping and your genuine love for your customers shines through.

  26. Asha says:

    Good luck, I only wish I could watch you make your HSN debut but I’m in Australia. All the best Becky💐

  27. Linda Sanders says:

    i like to use project life but, i would REALLY like to see some purple and lavender cards and embellishments

  28. You’ll do great Becky!

    Just curious… I wondered why you called this gorgeous kit Little Moments when there is a Little Moments by Stampin Up! already? Just thought it could be a little confusing was all… Just an observation…

    • Wendy says:

      Oops! We know that’s confusing… The first Little Moments collection was retired by Stampin’ Up! after the 2014-15 catalog year and using the name again was an oversight on our end. -Wendy BH Customer Service

  29. Judy Estrada says:

    You will be great on HSN . Looking forward to seeing a demo of your new items.

  30. Cheryl says:

  32. Cheryl says:

    Hi! I went on the HSN website and couldn’t find your shows listed under their Program Guide? I don’t want to miss it!
    Thanks

  33. Laurel M says:

    I plan on turning on HSN as soon as I wake up tomorrow and look forward to seeing all your PL items. I did my first Project 365 album in 2009 and since then I only do Project Life for my scrapbooking. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Good luck and God bless!

  34. Sherry U says:

    Way to go Becky! I know you will be fabulous. I’ve followed your career with the magazine and now online. You inspire me everyday. Wild horses couldn’t keep me from watching HSN tonight/tomorrow. There is no question I will buy something. The only question is how much. I’ll be nervous & excited with you. 😊💕

  35. Melinda says:

    Congratulations Becky! I’ve followed you for a long time and it has been inspiring to see you gain such success. You are a fantastic inspiration of a mother and entrepreneur. I love that you are reaping the benefits of all your hard work. God bless you on your debut Wednesday. You will be amazing!
