we are 8 years old!
If you are new(er) to our brand, you may not know that we have a tradition of celebrating in a big way each October! Celebrating another year of existence is one thing (keeping a business afloat is no small task), but sharing fun things with YOU is what we love the most. Without you, we are nothing. And as cliché as that sounds … I mean it. We literally would not exist if not for your loyalty and support and enthusiasm for what we create and put out there.
So … the tradition is strong in coming up with different ways to celebrate each year, so really you never know what’s going to happen until birthday month comes around. And guess what guys? It’s October! It’s TIME!! Interested in knowing what we have up our sleeve this year as we celebrate EIGHT years? Here are 10 things to get excited about! No big deal. ; )
 Blog Post About How to Start Scrapbooking
Raise your hand if you are following us on social media, reading the blog, watching the videos, aware of the products we offer, maybe even preaching the “gospel of Project Life®” (ha!) … but you still haven’t actually taken the step to get started yourself!? Hmmm?? You love the idea of preserving memories but perhaps have nothing to show for it? Yeah. You’re not alone. We share + share + share but still … I have yet to publish a blog post that’s THE place one can go to wrap her head around how on earth to get started! That’s on me, and I know it!
Sooooo … I finally did it! I poured my heart and soul into a very informative + robust blog post which I believe will give you the clarity you may need in order to really START once and for all … or pick back up after so many years of doing nothing with your pictures! Get ready to feel inspired — not guilty! Plus, we will be sharing a special surprise in that post, so even if you’re doing just fine in the scrapbooking department, this will be a blog post to check out.
 Party at Our Place!
Whaaat?? True story! We’ve never done this before, but we’re totally doing it! We’re having a birthday party at our office in Peoria, Arizona … and you are invited! It’s going to be in 2 weeks — Monday, October 16, 3pm – 5pm. Stop by and say hi! Meet the team, tour the office, ask us questions, have a chance to win a prize, and … what’s a party without a food truck anymore, right??
 New Holiday Stone Wrap
We have 6 new Stone Wrap patterns coming (you guys voted on the holiday patterns, remember??) … and they will launch sometime during October. We cannot even wait and I’m pretty sure you’re going to want these under your Christmas tree this year.
 New + FREE Project Life Collections
Coming exclusively in both app + digital formats (not physical) … we have 2 brand-new and super cool Project Life collections that will be made available for FREE! It’s our way of showing our appreciation for YOU. One is more celebratory and fun in nature, and the other is more focused on helping you to document your memories associated with disasters, since that is particularly relevant right now and so many people are affected by that at some point in their life.
 New Notebook Designs
Fun fact: Our Simple Notebooks were the first thing to sell out at the Pinners in Texas this past weekend. We are so glad you guys love them as much as we do. It’s time to add more! We have been working hard to design + produce the next (4) Simple Notebooks and they have a totally different color palette than the first four. They are gorgeous! And … one of the notebooks will be a limited edition item that we can’t wait to share.
 Soft Cover Photo Books
We are so proud of the quality of our premium photo books that you can order directly through the Project Life App. We also know that you’ve been chomping at the bit for another option that’s less expensive, so this should be the month that we are able to launch our soft cover option! We’ll start with the 8″ x 8″ size and if things go well and if you guys love the soft cover photo books as much as we do (customers in Texas got to see and hold samples and the response was incredible), then we’ll eventually offer more sizes.
 2018 Creative Team Call
It is around this time each year that we begin our search for an all-new Creative Team! Does this feel like your year?? Get your layouts ready so that when we announce the details, you’ll be ready to submit. Keep in mind that we’re not looking for the emphasis to necessarily be on “creativity.” We just want to see good use of our products. If you aren’t familiar with our typical Creative Team sharing, you can see a sampling on this page and also in each of our Creative Team posts here on the blog.
 New Physical Project Life Launch
As if we don’t have enough product launches happening already this month … we are also launching a new product in physical format! You might love it for you; you might love it as the perfect holiday gift for loved ones. You might love it for both reasons!
 BH Fashion
We’re not a fashion company, but we are a lifestyle brand … and we know that many of you want to see more from us in that regard. So let’s do it! We have had so much fun with our Rise + Shine t-shirt that we decided to collaborate with Cents of Style again on something else. It’s too early to spill the beans, but stay tuned to see what’s coming soon! Hint: It’s not another t-shirt. ; )
 More Surprises!
I’m definitely not sharing all the things. There’s more. More surprises and more reasons to be really excited that you’re part of this amazing community of people who care about cultivating a good life and recording it. As always, subscribing to our newsletter is the very best way to not miss the most important announcements this month … and always.
It’s always so fun to see your excitement and feel your support during our birthday month. Thank you so much for joining us in celebrating 8 years of Becky Higgins LLC! We are so grateful you’re a part of our story.
