Project Life - Stampin' Up! Style

I have some exciting news to share from Stampin' Up! They are partnering with the great Becky Higgins to bring Project Life to Stampin' Up! I am so excited about this news. I have wanted to venture into Project Life when my son was born but I just couldn't justify buying more scrapbook items when I have so many things from Stampin' Up! Well beginning May 1st the forces will join and I will be able to use my Stampin' Up supplies in conjuction with the Project Life supplies Stampin' Up will be producing. I CANNOT wait! My plan is to start an album up when the new baby arrives.

If you are unfamiliar with Project Life here is a little more information about what it is all about.
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.

A selection of products will be available May 1st. 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!
Here is a peek at what will be available on May 1st.

Here is a little bit of how Stampin' Up! will do Project Life...

Coordination, coordination, coordination. You know we do it best, and our Project Life line is no exception.

Our products center on things that matter most-weddings, babies, kids, and the everyday moments of getting together with your favorite people-all things that need to be remembered.

Our card collections come without rounded corners so you can decide if you want to keep them that way (and match the corners of your photos as they come) or use our Project Life Corner Punch to round them out.

Our card collections come packaged in an exclusive storage system that holds all your Project Life supplies on your desk: cards, journaling pens, photos, accessory packs, stamp sets, and more.

I hope you are all as excited about this as I am. If you would like any more information on this new endeavor, please contact me!

Another Paper Pumpkin card

Happy Friday! Short post for today. I have another stepped-up Paper Pumpkin card to show you today. This time I used the gold for the envelope liners as a background on the card. I also used the Starburt Sayings stamp set and framelits. I really like using the Strawberry Slush with Costal Cabana. I really just love all of this year's In-Colors together. And the ruffled ribbon is so great! This card was also fairly quick to put together.

If you are interested in these quick and fun projects that you can do with the monthly paper pumpkin subscription, please contact me now! You won't regret it!

Stamps: Starburt Stayings
Ink: Strawberry Slush
Paper: Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana
Accessories: March Paper Pumpkin, Starburst Framelit Dies, Strawberry Slush ruffled ribbon, Gold sequin trim
