Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



the “Just Add Color” edition available TODAY!

Today is the day! Lisa Bearnson is on HSN (Home Shopping Network), and she will be selling some fun scrapbooking products, including several Project Life® items. And specifically … we are so excited that Lisa will be showing the JUST ADD COLOR Edition! You really should tune in and watch the product in action and learn all about the fun features.

Papercrafting with Lisa is live at 10 am, 2 pm, and 9 pm Eastern Time. Don’t have HSN on your TV? No worries. You can watch it live at HSN.com.

However, for those of you who are unable to watch, or you just simply want to BUY … I’m pleased to let you know that you can just go to HSN.com and shop. Right here. Right now!

In the meantime, I wanted to share some pictures that give you a little more of an idea of the coolness of this product.

This is not what you typically find in a Project Life tray. Instead of all 4×6 and 3×4 cards, you’ll find 4×6, 4×4, and 2×2 cards.



Oh – and stickers. Really, really gorgeous stickers to add just the right pop of color in just the right place.



Including letter stickers that are the perfect font and the perfect size to add titles to your cards.


I’m warning you right now: Holding those itty-bitty 2×2 cards in your hands will be a little too much fun. You may be tempted to just play, but remember – these are designed to slip right into those 2×2 pockets, just like the other sized cards slip into the larger pockets. Everything just slips into pockets so you can get your pages done FASTER – and with cutting or gluing a thing!




We also offered a pack of 60 Overlays as a separate item on HSN. I say that in past tense because … they showed up on HSN.com a few days ago and we mentioned this to you, and you guys did NOT waste time. They’re already sold out!! I will keep you posted on our plans to offer these fantastically fun overlays again. In the meantime … for those of you who are going to be getting these in the mail …

TIP OF THE DAY: Be sure to peel off the protective film before using the overlays! Once you do, the clarity will blow your mind.





There’s lots of really cool inspiration from various people using the Just Add Color Edition in this post, if you missed it.

PS – Speaking of cool add-on products, you will probably want to pick up the pack of alpha stickers in a variety of colors. And I know a lot of folks are really excited about the set of date stamps that we’ve put together exclusively for HSN as well. There’s a lot of Project Life goodness on the HSN website; you’ll see it all HERE.

    What about those of us that live outside the USA. How do we get this kit??????

  2. Tracy says:

    Please tell me this edition is coming to digi!

    • Melissa says:

      Someone asked this on her Facebook page and the Digital team responded that they will offer it in digital form in the future. Yay!

    • Tracy says:

      AWESOME!!!! Thanks for the update! I don’t know how i missed it on the FB page – will have to go check it out!

  3. Krista says:

    might i suggest digital overlays for photos :)

  4. Anne-Marié Louw says:

    Will this kit be available in South Africa, please?

  5. grace says:

    will overlays be available on your blog or Amazon? I have checked everyday and never showed up on HSN. Lucky people who got them! You need to have alot more of your new things because we all want them lol Grace


  7. Hayley says:

    I keep hoping those overlays will show up on digital project life!!! Any plans for that?

  8. I hate to say it but I’m a bit disappointed this kit is an ‘all or nothing’ kit. I don’t need an album or necessarily all of the stickers. I was really hoping I’d just be able to buy the ‘core kit’ of the cards like all of the other kits are sold. I mean, some of us have already bought all of that stuff. I was really hoping to get this kit as a supplement to what I’m already using. Guess I’ll pass :(

  9. Addie says:

    Really excited for this kit! I do traditional scrapping on 12×12 pages, but am inspired by Lisa’s album of combining years worth of family trips! All our big trips have never been scrapped and this will be perfect for that! The kit contents will also go with my 12×12 pages! Can’t wait to see those 2×2 cards! Thank you!

  10. Amy B says:

    Can you show some more close ups of the date stamps? The pictures on HSN don’t show much.


  11. Rhonda says:

    I’m wondering about the PL Merry & Bright Mini Kit on HSN… they indicate gold, silver and white markers with the kit… what size point are they and are they more paint type finish or marker finish? I can’t find info online.

    Thanks, Rhonda

  12. Luanna says:

    I am sooo sad the overlays are sold out! I have been watching and waiting. Finally decided to check your blog since they haven’t shown up. Thanks for they update Becky!

  13. Billie says:

    Will the overlays be available in stores eventually or are they exclusive to HSN? I missed them too, by the time I got to HSN the other day they were sold out!

  14. Jocelyn says:

    please sell the overlays on Amazon. I missed them too over the weekend. I have been doing Project Life since the very first kit sold on Creating Keepsakes. Thanks.

  15. Ruth says:

    Becky…. There were some comments about the overlays being rounded … That they would not buy them because of that. I bought them…yay…but would also love to see some without rounded corners! People can always use your corner rounder if the prefer rounded! That way all there’s more options! Oh and love the orner rounder too! Thanks for all you do and please keep bringing these great products please!!!

  16. Lisa W. says:

    I was just going to comment on “Can we just by the Just Add Color kit” by itself…and read Michelle’s comment above. I’m with her, I don’t want the WHOLE thing! Mainly the new edition and the pageprotectors so be able to use the square things:) I have several (its’ sick…lol) editions but I like to inter~mix them also.

    PLEASE tell ust we can buy the “kit” only sometime soon:)

    Thank you…

  17. Jackie E. says:

    Love love the new kit! Unfortunately, HSN doesn’t ship to APO addresses (military addresses). Will this change anytime soon? Or will the kit become available somewhere besides HSN?

    Thank you!

  18. Got my kit today and I LOVE the card kit but I got the wrong page protectors. I got all Design a and Design D None of the new one :( Bummer… I called and they are sending a new kit but there is no way to tell until I get it whether they are the right ones. Apparently lots of ladies over on 2 peas have gotten the wrong pages as well.

    • Casey Britton says:

      I had this exact same problem! They told me they could try to send a new one or they could refund me the money. SO DISAPPOINTED! If I cant get the right pages, this kit is almost useless!

    • Katie says:

      I received the wrong pages too. I haven’t gotten a response back from HSN yet but I don’t want to have to send those cute 2×2 cards back :(

  19. Samantha Morris says:

    kit looks awesome, but I’m very disappointed that it is not available outside the US, it makes me feel really left out just because of where I live

  20. Leslie S says:

    Is there a trick to getting the protective film off the overlays? I have only been able to get it off of one. Looks like a poor design and I would hate to send them back but I can’t get the film off of them. Very frustrating. Anyone have any suggestions?

    For those of you who get kits like this with 2×2 pockets, PostalPix is an app I use to order pictures from my phone. They have an option to print a grid of nine 2×2 pictures where you can choose pictures right off your phone’s photo albums. You’ll be able to just cut them up and place them into the pockets!! or paste onto other cards. Check it out! (the app will do 4×4 and 4×6 sizes too)

  23. […] very limited supply. There are not many of these kits left and it’s no wonder. Check out this blog post where I outlined more on what’s unique about the Just Add Color Edition. If you want to know […]
