Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



CHA is this weekend


CHA = Craft & Hobby Association.

The trade show – which I think they’re calling a “Mega Show” now? Maybe? – is held in Anaheim, California, on January 10-14. It is for exhibitors, buyers, retailers, designers, and other industry professionals. It is the place that our company has physical presence. The photo above was from last January’s show. This year our booth will be larger and the featured product will be all of our new stuff.

Being a part of the experience

For those who will be in attendance: Please stop by Booth #2626 and say hello. We’d love to meet you!

For everyone else (which is most of you): You can see all of the new releases that we’ll be showcasing at CHA right here on the blog. I already shared sneak peeks of our new Core Kits, our new Mini Kits, and all other supporting Project Life products. I’ll also be sharing lots of behind-the-scenes happenings from the show floor – and off the show floor! You can catch those glimpses on the social media channel of your choice – Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Also – our resident photographer Kara will be joining us this time for some video coverage as well, so we’ll be sure to follow-up with some fun post-CHA action right here on the blog as soon as next week.

We’re looking forward to a GREAT show. It’s always a thrill for us to talk face-to-face with anyone who wants to chat about Project Life. We love to listen just as much as we love to share. It is from these conversations that I expect to come home even more inspired about our direction and services and products.

One last note

Before we started Becky Higgins LLC in 2009, I attended CHA at least a dozen times, wearing a Press badge. I was on the editorial and product development staff for Creating Keepsakes magazine for 12 years. I posted this video just before Christmas. I paid tribute to the magazine that is now no longer – but will forever have a place in many of our hearts. I wanted to mention that again because I know with it being shared in the middle of the holidays, many of you missed that but may have an interest in seeing the video.

    Where can we get more information about some of the Michael’s exclusive products (specifically the planner, recipe & journal sets)? I’m not finding anything on their website and my local Michaels had no idea what I was talking about when I called them. :/ ;)

    Have a great time at CHA! One day, I’d like to go to one!

    I was wondering if you are showing any of your new products on create and craft at the show. I’m have been hooked when I 1st saw your products last year. I have 8 core kits and a couple of mini kits, also I have got my mum hook on all your products which we sit an do together. So we would like all the new stuff……please please please.
    I really really need the dies and the storage case.
    Can you please let me know if we will be getting any of these in England. Xx

    Not about CHA but not sure where else to ask about this. I had an RSS feed for this blog that worked great until the revamp. Thought I just needed to add the feed again from the site, so I did that. But I still don’t get any new content – nothing after Nov 2013. Is there something else I should be doing? Or is RSS just broken for now? Thanks!

  9. Stacia says:

    Oh, oh, I take it back! RSS is working now. Yay! :-)

  10. Rachel says:

    Oh, I’d love to attend one of these shows… maybe one day. It would be an honour to meet you and your team… have you thought of coming to Australia Becky! It would be fantastic… thank you for all your inspiration!

  11. Katie says:

    Becky, are there any more Monday Releases planned for Digital Project Life? :)

  12. Amy says:

    I cannot wait to purchase the storage container?! Will it be available on Amazon this weekend? As soon as it’s available I’m buying it!

  13. Laura says:

    Is CHA open to the public??

  14. Nadz says:

    Any chance other countries (UK) will get the maggie holmes and dear lizzy exclusive core kit? Hehe

  15. Thought I would comment and say cool theme, did you design it for yourself? Looks really good!

  16. The elegance of those blogging engines and CMS platforms might be the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that permits builders to put into action prosperous topic material and ‘skin’ the web site in this kind of a way that with truly little effort a single would in no way observe what it truly is generating the web site tick all without having limiting content and effectiveness.

  17. great work… Superb weblog here! Also your internet site a good deal up rapidly! What web host are you the usage of? Can I get your associate link on your host? I want my site loaded up as rapidly as yours lol…
