Stampin’ Up! Teams Up With Project Life

Ooh exciting! Coming with the new Annual Catalogue in July is a new range of scrapbooking products. Stampin’ Up! have just announced that they’ve teamed up with the Queen of Simple Scrapbooking Becky Higgins. That means authentic Project Life products in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours and designs! If you’re a Project Life convert I know you’ll be super excited by this news. If not, you soon will be! 

Project Life is a process that is more about Memory Keeping than about traditional scrapbook layouts. It makes scrapbooking accessible to more people. It’s great for beginners and makes it faster and easier for experienced scrapaholics. It’s all about spending more time making memories and less time trying to work out how to scrapbook them! The basic idea is that you slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and surround them with designed cards for decorating, journalling and adding your own personal touches.

I haven’t tried this type of scrapbooking yet but I’ve been keeping an eye on it and waiting for the right time to give it a go. I’m thinking that time is coming pretty soon and I hope to show you more about it very soon.
