Overall Product Line Questions
Q. How does it work?
A. It couldn't be simpler: slip photos, mementos, and journaling into an album with Photo Pocket Pages. That alone will give you fabulous results (no scissors or glue required!); if you want to do more you can embellish your photos or cards with Project Life accessory packs or stamps. Our accessory packs are designed to coordinate perfectly with our card collections which makes stepping things up super simple.
Q. Who's it for?
A. We've all heard people say scrapbooking takes too much time. You've probably had that thought yourself a time or two. That's why Project Life works so well for all of us. It's quick and easy and has a fresh approach. And for those who don't do simple, you can embellish to your heart's content. So in a nutshell, Project Life is for everyone-the scrapbookologists, the timid, and the skeptical.
Q. How often will products be released?
A. We will offer a complete line of Project Life products in our annual catalog. You may see other products released in seasonal catalogs or at other times throughout the year. We will also release digital Project Life products regularly. A pre-order period begins on May 1, 2014 with a selected items available. The full product line will be in the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog on June 2, 2014. See information below for product that is available May 1!
Q. Will Stampin' Up!'s Project Life products be sold in retail stores?
A. No. While Project Life products are sold in retail stores, Project Life by Stampin' Up! is sold exclusively through our demonstrators (with digital content being the exception).
Q. Where will the digital Project Life products be offered?
A. They'll be offered on our website and on a workshop order like normal and they'll also be available on Becky Higgins' website.
Q: Will Stampin' Up! be offering albums as part of the Project Life product line?
A: Yes, we do plan to offer albums as part of the product line as they are a key component to this type of memory keeping system. Recent quality issues have forced us to delay the launch of our 12"x 12" Project Life album, but we are continuing to work with our manufacturer to ensure you receive a high quality product when the album is released. Please watch for further updates, as they should be available soon.
Q. What are the label sheets in the card packs for?
A. You can use the first sheet to label the box (just wrap it around the box base). You can use the second sheet to label the top lid, which works great if you're going to store it in a drawer. Watch our Project Life videos to learn more about the storage system.
Q. Is the radius of the Project Life Corner Punch the same as the Becky Higgins' Project Life rounded corners?
Q. Is the Project Life Corner Punch different than the 3/16" Corner Punch from the 2013-2014 annual catalog?
Q. Why is there extra space in the card collection boxes?
A. They serve as a storage solution for adding photos or other Project Life items you want to keep organized.
Q. Why aren't the corners of the cards rounded like traditional Project Life cards?
A. We wanted to provide you with versatility; through focus groups we learned that people like the option of square or rounded corners. The corner punch allows you to choose either square or rounded corners or even to mix and match! For the fastest option, pair square cards with square corner photos so they match up perfectly.
