Project Life

I am so so so excited to let you know that Stampin' Up! announced this week that we’ve partnered with the amazing Becky Higgins to bring you the real deal—authentic Project Life products, now in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors and designs. If you’ve somehow missed the Project Life craze and are wondering what it’s all about, we’ll fill you in: it’s a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It’s a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.


You’ll be able to order a selection of Project Life products starting May 1! And with the launch of our new annual catalog on June 2, you’ll be able to buy from our complete line of Project Life products.

Can’t wait that long? Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be able to order the limited selection starting April 21. So if you’re a demonstrator make sure to check the demonstrator website that day; if you’re not a demonstrator, sign up and you can order the products early too!

Here are the items you’ll be able to purchase on May 1:



Contact me if you have any questions.

Using the Snail Adhesive, adhere the larger Daffodil Delight piece to the embossed Island Indigo piece.   Adhere the Daffodil Delight Ribbon to the center back of the smaller Island Indigo piece using the Snail Adhesive.  Adhere this piece (with the ribbon attached) to the front of the card, on the Daffodil Delight cardstock. 
  3. Using the Staz On Jet Black Pad stamp the images on each folded “page” of the fold out card as shown.  Stamp the sentiment on the last page. 
  4. Place several drops of the three ink refills on the paper plate.  Using the Blender Pen, pick up color from the refill ink palette and color in the images on the fold out card. 
  5. Allow to dry (just takes a few seconds) and then close the card on score lines.  Using the Snail Adhesive, adhere the last “page” to the Island Indigo piece on the front of the card.  Tie the ribbon to close up the card.
