What is Project Life?09:00
There has been so much hype about Project Life lately. It made me wonder for a while what all the hype was about. Why was everyone converting to this style of scrapbooking and why?
I know there are still some people in the dark on this style, so I thought I might put together a brief post on what it is all about.
It all started with Becky Higgin's Project Life System. This can be explained better with this video:
So now we know what Project Life is...how do we go about it? It's such a big project to start and there are so many options.
First...let's talk albums & page protectors.
You can use ANY album you like as long as it's 12x12 in size. I am using an American Crafts album from the Dear Lizzy range. (I will post more on this later)
As for page protectors, the idea of Project Life is to scrap within the divided page protectors. Many companies have now got on board with making these from; Echo Park, Becky Higgins, American Crafts and We R Memory Keepers. They all come in a variety of layouts and sizes. I have seen people use a mixture and variety & even incorporating 12x12 plain layouts, 8.5x11, 6x6 & 6x12. I love that Project Life gives you the ability to do this.
What else do you need?
Some 3x4 and 4x6 cards, a journalling pen, some photos ~ and you are set to go!
Here is a good post by Becky Higgins for Project Life Newbies.
So what does Polly! offer you?
We have got on board with this trend after many requests from companies. We are excited to now be offering Project Life subscriptions/kits.
The kits will be $23.95 per month but will be just $22.75 for subscribers.
Here is a little peek at Polly!'s first Project Life kit (which sold out...but the next one will be available in just a couple of weeks!)
Having a kit means we have taken the guessing out for you and combined a whole heap of new products that work well together.
This is just an example of what our future Project Life kits will be like.
We are excited to be organising exclusive goodies each month including; exclusive stamps, die cuts and flair.
How can you get a kit?
Kit's will be available for purchase through the store. You can also subscribe to the kits to ensure you don't ever miss out. This is a cheaper and easier way to secure you kits.
An example of work from the kit.
Here is a little look at what I did with the above kit. This was my very first Project Life kit and having a kit sitting in front of me to work from made it so much easier.
There will be more information soon!
& don't forget that we are looking for a Project life designer.
