Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.

welcome to the all-new BeckyHiggins.com!

Friends!

We can hardly believe the day has come that we can finally reveal our shiny & new website and shop! I have so much to share, so many features I want to point out, and yet — wouldn’t you know it? Guess what’s ALSO happening today — the same day that we launch our site? We’re moving the business out of our home and into our first real commercial office space! How’s this for a memorable day? Ha! 

Want to catch behind-the-scenes glimpses of our move and the new office? Pick your favorite social media channel (our links are at the top of the website).

Okay — three quick things to point out, then I’m loading boxes on a moving truck (literally):


it takes a village

There are too many people to point out and certainly not enough time, but can I just say…? I feel tremendously blessed to be surrounded by — and working alongside — some of the most talented, hard-working people. It really did take a small village to get our newly-designed website and shop to this point. I’m so proud of my team, thankful for them, and elated that after many months of behind-the-scenes work, it’s here!


new shop!

Oh, you guys. The shop. When we first launched our online shop less than a year ago, it was an “out of the box” template set-up. It functioned, but we knew from the beginning that we needed to get it to look & feel more in line with our brand AND we wanted you – the customer – to have the best online shopping experience possible.

Better layout? Check. More aesthetically awesome? For sure – check! More products? Check. In fact, more than 300 Project Life® products can be found in our shop! Better backend system? Check? More organized? Check. Physical AND Digital Project Life products all on one site? Check. More product pictures so you can really see what you’re about to purchase? Check and check.


i am project life

As you browse the new site, please take a moment to check out our new video – I am Project Life. Without saying anything more, we hope you enjoy the message even though there are no actual words spoken. There’s more I want to share about this very special video project, but that’ll be for another day. In the meantime, we hope the message resonates with you. We hope you feel that you are Project Life — whatever that means to you personally.

PS – We even had some “I am Project Life” necklaces made for this special occasion and we have a limited quantity in the shop right here.


One last note: We are officially live, but surely there are little glitches here & there that we need to work out. Please be patient while we work through a few minor things. This is just the beginning of the new site. More features coming. Lots more, actually. Many things in the works and all in the name of providing the tools to help you with your scrapbooking goals and some inspiration as you strive to cultivate a good life.

Big hugs all around. More about all of this later. In the meantime — happy browsing, happy shopping, happy day! Please share what you’re loving and what you would love to see.

  5. Natasha P. says:

    I thought maybe with the new site and shop you would be shipping to Canada?? Or does your shop just ship to the US?

    • Toni Chase Toni Chase says:

      This is coming so very soon! It is at the top of our priority list but we needed to make sure that all was well with the launch of the site/shop first before we start making a transition into international shipping. Thank you for your patience! ~ Toni @ Becky Higgins LLC

    • Joelle says:

      Carmel, have you seen her repeated comments that they are working to find the best, most reasonably priced international shipping options? I don’t think they are forgetting you — just working on best solution. Probably worth waiting for.

  9. Vanessa B. says:

    The video was absolutely beautiful.

  10. Karen says:

    Congrats on the new site and move! Looks great but I miss the color…so much white. Good luck with everything!

  11. Bryan says:

    Tried watching the new video and I can’t get it to work anyone else having issues with that?

  12. Barb says:

    love the video and so true

    • Karen says:

      Barb I couldn’t watch it via the link above but if you go to the You Tube link (right hand side of this page under Becky’s photo) its on there to watch and its lovely…..

  13. Sheri says:

  16. Janine says:

    so fresh and up to date…great work…

  17. Kim M says:

    LOve It!!!! One thing though….can you can the color of the type, the gray is sooo hard to read.

  18. Jolene says:

    Recipes?? I hope they will be coming back. Kinda missing the color, but like the new look.

  19. laura g. says:

    this is so exciting!! congrats!!

  20. Peggy Neiman says:

    Love the new website and shop!!!!

    Congrats!

  21. Karen says:

    Love the new look site, I think its fresh and modern and very Becky Higgins. Also the video is really lovely. This blog is one of my favourites to visit not only for all the Project life updates but all the “life” inspiration and goodness too. Look forward to the international shipping to get the extra bits I can’t get locally. Congratulations to you all at Becky Higgins. Happy moving day!!!

  22. Nirupama says:

    Brilliant to have you back! The new site is lovely. XOXO,
    Niru

  23. Jana says:

    Wow, I love the new site :) It’s so light and clean and wonderful.

    But on the sites where the designers introduce themselves (“meet the designers”) you can’t click on the links to their websites :/ The social media buttons underneath the pictures are also “unclickable”.

    • Toni Chase Toni Chase says:

      Hi Jana! They all seem to be working for me. Would you mind refreshing your page and trying again? ~ Toni at Becky Higgins LLC

  24. Lynn L. says:

    Looks great! Love the video!!

  25. Sandra says:

    Why can’t I navigate between subsequent blog posts? I don’t read every day, and to catch up I have to keep returning to the ‘home’ blog page. Next/Previous option somewhere on this post screen would be so helpful.

    • Toni Chase Toni Chase says:

      Hi Sandra! If you scroll all the way to the bottom (whether it be at the bottom of a full blog post, or the bottom of the page with the four blog post previews) you will find a “previous post” and a “next post” button that will navigate you as you wish. I hope this helps! ~ Toni at Becky Higgins LLC

  26. LB says:

    Looks great and off to see the video – yeah on the new space

  27. Dmitri says:

    the website is looking good.

  28. Melissa says:

    Love your new site Becky! Congrats on the new site and the new office space! I’m sure it has been good to have work at home for the past few years but I bet if feels great to have an office space!

  29. Leslie S. says:

    Congrats on all your success, you deserve it. Good luck with the move.

  30. Havok says:

    Looks fantastic! Can’t wait to poke about at all the new things!

  31. Dianne says:

    I agree with a previous comment that the rather thin, gray typeface is much harder to read than your old website’s, which I never had any problems with. Hope you will do something to make it bolder or blacker or larger so it will be easier to read. Thanks!

  32. BeautyScraps says:

    The new site looks great and your I am Project Life video brought me to tears. Your passion for what you do is so beautiful. You make it easy for everyone to document their lives, their journey and that process itself is so meaningful to me and the many others you inspire. Thank you so much for all that you do!

  33. Sue M says:

    The font and especially the light color makes your new design more difficult to read on my iPad.

  34. Congratulations on the new site, the new space, and the new video. How exciting! We’re so glad you entrusted your shop design and development to us at Aeolidia, and will be here for you as your business grows and changes. Cheers!

  35. Alicia says:

    Hello Becky and the Team!
    The photos of your new workspace look amazing. It has been so fun to watch the progress of the building, decorating choices and now moving in! Congratulations to you all!!
    The new website is perfect. So clean and fresh and functional. I love all the white space…so inspiring!! Just makes me want to de-clutter my blog, my desk, my Project Life system, my house! I love clean, white space!! LOL
    The video is beautiful. I love it.
    Thanks for sharing so much about your journey.
    Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  36. Amber says:

    Beautiful site, congrats. Is there any way to access the “freebies” page you had before? Specifically I’d like to print out the page that has all the different (physical) page layouts/protectors you can buy. That’s how I organize my huge collection of page pocket pages and my copy is getting pretty tattered. Thanks!

  37. Jocelyn says:

    Becky
    Love the video, watched it a couple of times, what is the music you used?

  38. Sara L says:

    Are the recipes and the free stuff page still available somewhere? I can’t find them! I really wanted to look at the free holiday cards from a few years ago. Any help is appreciated.

  39. Sarah says:

    Hopefully you will return to using a black font on the website. The gray is too hard for me to read. Thanks

  40. Absolutely beautiful site! Congratulations with everything that is happening for you. Massive, massive things. How you manage it all is simply amazing!

  41. Mary Beth says:

    Love the changes but the gray type is VERY hard to read against the bright white background- please please please consider changing it.

  42. Kari B says:

    Beautiful site!!! I too would like to know the name of the music used. Perfect choice for your video.

    Kari

  43. Debbie says:

    I love the new site, but the gray is too hard to read. I’m 65 and my eyesight isn’t as good as it used to be and it really hurts my eyes to try to read it. Please make they type darker.

  44. Amy D says:

    Becky, Just a question…when you switched to your last new website (both of which are beautiful btw…) all your old content didn’t switch over as well. I really loved your “12 Videos of Christmas” you’d post and during the holiday season when things got a little crazy I’d always sit down with a cup of coffee and watch those videos. They were great! Are you ever going to add them to your new website? I’ve even looked for them on YouTube but couldn’t find them. Thanks for your time!!

  45. Tara says:

    Love the new site, but I am having technical issues, how do I configure my browser (safari on an imac) to see the photos at the correct ratios? They are all really skinny and long and just not right.

  46. Tiffany H says:

    New site, new office, new kit…lots of goodness going on for Project Life! I love the clean look of the new site but it seems so small on my big computer–the main column seems too narrow. I don’t know if it’s this way for when looking at the site on a mobile phone or not but it makes it difficult to read. Also, the font is small, too light, and difficult to read. Just my two cents. ;-)
