What will be on HSN?

March 25th is fast-approaching and we are super excited to share with you today the two brand-new Project Life editions that will be available that day for a screamin’ deal.

The Blush Edition and the Jade Edition. Both of these are coming to stores in May but this is your very first opportunity to pick them up AND the price will blow your mind. We’re offering these 2 editions in a format that isn’t available anywhere else, too! What that means is that we have put together the Core Kit + Album + Big Pack of Photo Pocket Pages + Designer Dividers in one beautiful KIT. All together. For one crazy low price.

Sooooooo exciting.

Both editions so fun, so gorgeous, so awesome – each in their own way. The Blush Edition is more sweet, girly, youthful. The Jade Edition is more gender-neutral, hip, and can totally work for boy pictures. Be thinking about which one might float your boat for whatever scrapbooking you have to do. Be thinking about which friends you should tell to TUNE IN on March 25th so they don’t miss out on the least expensive way EVER to get Project Life. Be thinking about picking up an extra kit or two for GIFTS.

We have so much more to share – pictures and information and ideas! Only a week & a half leading up to the BIG DAY.

In the meantime, there are a few questions floating around that I’ll go ahead and address now. As always, you’re more than welcome to ask additional questions in the Comments of this post and we’ll do our best to answer those too.

…..

Q: I missed this announcement. What should I know about Project Life being on HSN?

A: Check out THIS blog post and you’ll be all in-the-loop.

…..

Q: How much will these kits cost?

A: We’re actually not able to announce the actual price until the day it’s for sale. HSN’s rule, sorry.

…..

Q: I don’t have cable! How can I watch and/or buy?

A: No problem. You’ll totally be able to watch and order online at HSN.com that day – March 25th.

…..

Q: I live outside the U.S. but I really want to buy this kit!

A: HSN is only able to ship to U.S. addresses, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands. Bummer, I know! We’d love to bring it outside the U.S. too, of course! Can’t do everything all at once and we have a LOT of wheels spinning – and spinning fast – right now. Hang in there, international friends. Products are coming to a store near you in May! And if you don’t know if your local shop will be carrying Project Life, be sure to send them HERE.

…..

Q: How will I know when to watch Lisa on HSN?

A: Lisa will be on air several times throughout the day on March 25th. Her first segment is 12:01 am EST. Totally worth staying up late Sunday night to watch, if you ask me. HSN ordered a lot of these kits but no one can predict how fast they’ll sell out. She will present the “Today’s Special” (the Project Life kits you see above) several other times throughout the day – until they sell out.

…..

Q: Is this “it” for Project Life that day?

A: Nope. We have MORE Project Life products that Lisa will sell on HSN on March 25th and I’ll happily share more about that next week! For now, I just wanted to give you the heads-up on which two kits will be the best deal of the day.

…..

Q: What about the retailers who will be carrying Project Life in their stores come May? Is this whole HSN thing fair to them?

A: Great question. We love our retailers, we are so grateful to SO many of them who have purchased Project Life to carry in their stores … and we are thrilled about what the HSN experience is going to do for retailers, actually! The concept of the Home Shopping Network is to allow folks to shop from the convenience of their own home as they watch people show & demonstrate products on TV. The prices are oftentimes discounted compared to what you find in retail stores.That’s all true, and while I understand that this may be an initial concern to retailers, it’s actually a really cool thing. For everybody.

Project Life has never been on TV – ever. This initial exposure will mean that literally millions of people who have never heard of Project Life, will now know the brand and the product. (Okay, I just freaked out a little writing that.) Some of them will buy, some of them will not. But the point is this: The exposure is ginormous. Folks will learn about the solution-based product that you guys already know about. They’ll see how this system can be exactly what they need to get their photos out of boxes and off the computer – and into completed albums without a creative bone in their body! Coolest thing since sliced bread.

Do you see where I’m going with this? It’s incredibly exciting to many retailers who understand this “bigger picture” – because they know they’ll actually GAIN customers. And even if their existing customers pick up Project Life on HSN, it’s not something you buy once and you’re done forever. We don’t each have 400 pictures that we’re sitting on. It’s more like 4,000 – or 40,000 pictures! Right? They’ll see how fun + easy + life-changing Project Life can be – and they’ll want more.

Last comment for now: The Today’s Special on March 25th is “special” because it’s a one-time deal. If it ever happens again, it’s not for a long time. Anyone who gets the product and wants more will need to hit stores (physical or online) to get more of what they want. Yay for retailers.

…..

Hope this helps explain a little more. Stay tuned for more information and more excitement!

    I love deals like this! I personally perfer buying it all lumped together and making it even more of a no brainer, so I am stoked about this! When Lisa was on the other shopping network I’d buy up all the deals! ;-)

  2. Susan says:

    what about digital, are you offering it that way also? I sure hope so!!!!

    • Yep, the Blush Edition and the Jade Edition will eventually be available in digital format, just like ALL the new editions that are coming in May. The timing will probably be late April/early May for Blush & Jade.

    • Susan says:

      thanks!!! I am so excited, this is my first year of doing project life and I LOVE it!!!! It is fun to say I am all caught up and it is so fun taking a picture a day. My grandchildren are loving looking at my pages:) Thanks again!!!!

  3. Grace says:

    I am so freaking excited! not everyone has “retailers” where they can purchase scrapbook or craft items. HSN sets up “special” bulk packages at a discounted price. Retailers can not sell that much product at their price. So it is wonderful for everyone. So great to see you 2 back at it! I miss the Creating Keepsakes days!!! Great luck to you both and thank you. Grace xoox

  4. Malia says:

    If her first segment is 12:01 am EST, then wouldn’t you need to stay up late SUNDAY night? Just sayin…….. Setting an alarm now. I’m excited to get my first PL album and get started!

  5. Jessica S says:

    I’m so excited right now! I had already decided to use the Jade edition for 2014, so getting a deal on the Jade kit is pretty super.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Is this the first point at which all of the products are manufactured by American Crafts?

  7. donya says:

    Will the binders matching these editions be on HSN as well?

    • The albums that coordinate with each kit come WITH the kit. It’s all bundled together. You’ll see more and it’ll make more sense next week when we can get to more pictures. : )

  8. Elaine says:

    This is awesome!!! Thank you! Is there a place on your website where we can see what binders will be with each kit before the TV reveal?

  9. Kristy says:

    Will there be an option to by the items separately? As in, can I purchase one of the core kits only?

  10. Thelma says:

    Soooo excited…can’t wait!!! Thanks for all the details!

  11. rosa m. neno says:

    Do you have any ideas when the travel mini kit will be available?

  12. Kelly says:

    It’s so frustrating that this is not offered to Canadian customers as well. We continually miss out on great deals.

    • I hear ya. We really wish HSN shipped across the world, but that’s not their model. We are certainly exploring more ways to have Project Life span the globe in more ways.

  13. Michelle says:

    Is everything that will be offered going to be presented at 12:01? Or will different products be offered at different times of the day? Thanks!

    • I’m actually not sure at this point, but I think the 12:01 presentation will be focused on the Project Life “Today’s Special” and then the other products will be sprinkled throughout the day. We should know more as we get closer.

  14. Jennie says:

    Yay!!!! I have been stalking your blog for info on the HSN products. Soooo excited for March 25th, can’t wait to get my hands on these kits! I will definitely be telling my friends about this deal too! Thanks Becky! :)

  15. Melissa says:

    Will HSN have both editions in stock on March 25th or will their be a delay in shipment?

  16. natalia says:

    This is so exciting. I love shopping on HSN, and I love PL. What a fantastic combination!! And what a great opportunity for the PL team!

  17. I can’t wait to tune-in. I might just stay up Sunday night for the Blush bundle!

  18. Heather says:

    Excited for your HSN debut. I noticed that Lili Niclass designed the gorgeous Jade Edition. Who designed the Blush Edition?

    • Yes – Lili has done it again with yet another awesome edition of Project Life! And the awesome in-house design team at American Crafts is behind the graphic design on the Blush Edition. : )

  19. Terri says:

    Yay! I am a huge promoter of Project Life (online and IRL!) and love the system. Can’t wait to see Lisa again and WITH PL is soooo exciting. Thanks, Becky!

  20. Chris R says:

    This is my first year to do Project life and I love it. I am thinking I may pick one up to go back and do some previous years photos. Did you say the price of the kit or did I miss that?

  21. Julie says:

    So will Lisa be presenting throughout the night after her first segment at midnight? Or mostly the next day? Sorry, I would just like clarification because I have small children and want to be prepared if I need to stay up late. Thanks!

  22. Brenda says:

    I love you ;) I am going on vacation that week and already told my husband that I will be logging in to get the deals. Buying gifts and stuff for me…lots of it.

  23. Rose E says:

    I can hardly wait!!! I already know, I will be ordering both kits. Thank you Becky for this system, it’s awesome and so are you! Also whatever Lisa is selling, I am sure I will be buying…so funny, she had to leave the other shopping channel, for me to finally pay off my credit card!!! Lol!!! But it will be ready for March 25th!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

  24. kat-in-texas says:

    So can’t wait for HSN!! Will any major retailers be carrying Project Life, Becky? We have lost so many scrapbooking stores around here. It would be nice if y’all could list the different retailers somewhere on this website. Thanks!

    • Many, many retailers will be carrying Project Life come May – small shops, big shops, chain stores …

      We will be sharing more information about the specific stores who are carrying our products as we get closer.

  25. Mikie B says:

    Don’t forget you West Coast girls that 9:00pm is when HSN’s Todays Special of PL is available! Can’t wait… Happy 50th Birthday to me!

  26. toni says:

    Becky.

    Which albums will be available with these collections on HSN? It looks like both the Jade and Blush have two options available for albums in the Catalog? I am buying this for my daughter (age 9) as a surprise to make her own Project LIfe album. I know she will love it because she always gives me things to put in our family PL album. I need help deciding, and the album color would really, really help.

    Love your products, been using them since January 2011. I seriously can’t wait for the 25th, my daughter will be so excited to get this in the mail!

    Thank you,
    Toni

  27. J3SS1C4 says:

    I’m excited to watch! My Mum recently moved to the US, so I’m looking forward to sending her a kit to document her move and her time over there! It’s so awesome to be able to send her the whole kit at once!! :-)

  28. Randi says:

    I’m also curious about what the core kits will retail for by themselves. I’m not sure I really want the album colors/designs that come with either Jade or Blush as opposed to purchasing one of the classic albums in a different color separately. So, I won’t know if the combination kit (core kit/album/protectors/dividers) is a good enough deal without knowing the future retail price of the core kit alone (plus the retail price of the classic albums). Any way to share that information. Even a general range of price would be a reference point for the HSN deal. Thanks!

    • brandi@beckyhiggins.com says:

      Our retail prices will be what they always have been. $29.99 – core kits, $19.99 – binder, $29.99 Big Pack PPP & scrapbook dividers – $7.99 = $88 total

  29. Erin says:

    I am so excited to be able to get a kit so early before May. I’ve been waiting for the new lines to get started. I am totally getting Blush but I would also like to get Honey, too. Will it be offered on HSN?

  30. Lanie says:

    Wow! I can’t wait. I have been watching the calendar in counting the days down….I am going to have to have both sets. Okay, I think I am going to be a junkie. :) I to like Erin want the Honey kit. I love the bright colors.

  31. Pat says:

    Are you going to be on HSN too?

  32. Amy G says:

    Will the kits that will be sold on HSN have the exact same contents as if you were to buy them through a retailer or amazon? Or will they be designed with substitutions or changes for HSN?

  33. Lanie says:

    if you haven’t seen Lisa’s blog today, check it out (http://www.lisabearnson.com/blog/) check it out as she has the kits picture with the albums and dividers along with a list of times that she is on and she notes which times that they will be showing the kids.

  34. katie says:

    This is what I am gathering… the only new versions will be Blush and Jade and the “other products (editions)” will be products that have already been released. Can someone confirm?

    • Blush & Jade are the only 2 full Project Life KITS that we’re offering on HSN on March 25th. Other products sold are not Core Kits of other editions. I’ll fill you in more on those “add-on items” next week.

  35. Ayesha says:

    I’m just a little bit sad that (living overseas and all) I won’t be able to buy both kits from HSN. But… I’m absolutely thrilled that I can buy Project Life kits at a shop in my own little country as of May. I can hardly wait!!!
    Will the overseas retailers be able to sell Project Life starting May 1st? Or will May 1st be the shipping date, shipping stuff from the US?

  36. Cara says:

    So glad I saved some birthday money:). I had my eye on the jade kit,
    So am thrilled it is being offered!

  37. […] light of what’s happening one week from today (Project Life makes its debut on HSN), I encourage you to tune in (or visit HSN.com that day, since you can also purchase online) and […]

  38. Brenda says:

    I’m just wondering… Lisa will be using the 2 PL KITS as her debut product at 12;01 on March 25th,Right? So does that mean that the 2 kits will only be available for purchase for the one hour after that or will they be available all day (along with the other products as they are being released). Please help me understand this, I’ve never purchased anything from HSN before! Please Help.
    Thank you!

    • Tiffany Sherman says:

      They will be available until they are sold out…..Looks like they will sell out with everyone following her. This is my 1st ever hearing about PL. I am a huge HSN shopper. LOL
      So I will be purchasing the Blush Core Kit for sure. Undecided about the Jade. But knowing me, I will get them both for the excellent pricing :)

  39. Barb says:

    Will there be anything for digital project life scrapbookers on the HSN sale?

  40. Lucy says:

    Super excited about this opportunity! Will probably be ordering both. I have seen pictures on other sites and saw that one has a black binder and the other a brown one. A little disappointed, is that the color they will be or will they coordinate them?

  41. Angie R says:

    Will us West Coast shoppers be able to purchase right at 9pm when Lisa debuts or do we have to wait an hour later? It is a 3 hour time difference right?

  42. […] Last week we were delighted to announce the editions that would be available on HSN – the Blush Edition and the Jade Edition. Both of them are gorgeous. Both of them have never been available before (but will also be coming to stores in May). Both will include a Core Kit, coordinating Album, Big Pack of Photo Pocket Pages, and Designer Dividers. All of that will be bundled together into a kit that has everything you need to complete your album for one unbelievable price. […]

  43. […] week we shared the news that the Blush Edition and the Jade Edition will be the two kits available when Project Life makes […]

  44. […] weeks into this amazing Project Life journey. When I embarked on this shortly after I purchased my Jade kit from HSN, I never imagined that I would now own four full kits, a mini kit, two albums, and countless pocket […]
