new product reveals – mini kits


Our big week of new product announcements continues. Today I’m focusing on 4 brand-new MINI KITS that are new to our product family. If you’re not familiar with the concept of a Project Life® Mini Kit, these little boxes that hold 100 cards (in both 3×4 and 4×6 sizes) are designed to either A) go into a Project Life Mini Album or B) supplement whatever you’re doing with a full-sized 12×12 Project Life album.

Obviously you can do whatever want to do, but those 2 purposes are what we had in mind when developing the Mini Kit in the first place. But hey – you could use these cards for all sorts of stuff. Whip up quick little note cards, use them in school projects, use them to leave notes around the house, in the car, or in your kids’ backpacks. In other words – anything goes.


Product: Project Life® Cut & Paste Mini Kit

Designer: Amy Tangerine brand (Amy Tan)

Expected arrival: Late August/early September – in stores everywhere, including online

Notes: Amy is currently on our 2013 Creative Team, so it’s extra special to see her designs and style manifested in some Project Life cards. I’ve already been playing with these designs for a special project I’ll be sharing soon … and they are so fun! I feel privileged to pair Amy’s brand with our product.





Product: Project Life® Polka Dot Party Mini Kit

Designer: Dear Lizzy brand (Elizabeth Kartchner)

Expected arrival: Late August/early September – in stores everywhere, including online

Notes: I first met Elizabeth when she was awarded the Creating Keepsakes “Hall of Fame” award many moons ago (don’t ask me the year; my memory’s not that good!). I have loved watching her bloom in her element and in this industry. Her product line is available from American Crafts and it is simply adored. We are honored to now blend her brand with Project Life.

Product: Project Life® Flea Market Mini Kit

Designer: Maggie Holmes brand (Maggie Holmes)

Expected arrival: Late August/early September – in stores everywhere, including online

Notes: Maggie is another member of our 2013 Creative Team, and another product designer – like Amy and Liz – with incredible sense of color and design … and fashion! She’s a phenomenal photographer and popular instructor as well. It’s such a delight to see her designs now in Project Life format and I can’t wait to see the pages she whips up with these.

Product: Project Life® Merry & Bright Mini Kit

Graphic Designer: Crystal Wilkerson

Expected arrival: This October – in stores everywhere, including online

Notes: I’ve had my eye on Crystal’s work for a while now, strongly interested in having her design something for Project Life. As I began conceptualizing a Mini Kit with a Christmas theme, Crystal was top-of-mind and luckily, just as enthusiastic to work on the project! The color palette and designs are soooo happy and fresh. You’re going to love this. I can totally see lots of Merry & Bright Mini Albums in progress this December.  : )





Each of these Mini Kits will be available in digital format as well – and around the time that the physical product becomes available (timing noted above with each Mini Kit).

Tune in tomorrow. More new product announcements so soooo much more to share!

    Oh lord, my wallet. These are amazing!

  5. tara says:

    Are these the same kits that are shipping with the HSN bundle?

    • Susanne says:

      That’s what I wondered. I know for sure the dear lizzy one is different because I’ve already received that one. If they’re not the same, they’re very close!

    • Nicolle says:

      No (at least I don’t believe so from what I’ve seen). The kits shipping are from AT, DL and MH’s past lines.

    • Great question. Yes – these are DIFFERENT than those 3 branded Mini Kits that were part of the HSN Autoship.
