Seriously, is this not the best news? I was so excited about this partnership when I first learned about it. I am a long time Stampin' Up customer and a Project Life admirer. Previous to this partnership, I had not had the opportunity to use Project Life so I was so excited for the chance to give it a try and MAN I am hooked! Stampin' Up really is the best thing that could have happened to Project Life. Seriously. EASY memory keeping + Stamps?! Yes!
I received a selection of product from the new Project Life by Stampin' Up line to review. All opinions are my own. As part of this selection of product, Stampin' Up offers Project Life cards, accessory packs, Project Life Corner Rounder, Framelits dies, Journaling pens, pocket pages and coordinating stamp sets as pictured above.
As mentioned above, I have been admiring Project Life for awhile. I used to be a scrapbooker but quit because I didn't have time. I loved doing it, but with four kids it just wasn't possible. When I found out about Project Life, I was instantly intrigued because it seemed do-able. Plus, it still looks adorable! If you aren't familiar with Project Life, it is a simplified scrapbooking where you use cards like pictured above and add the cards and photos to photo pockets. You could do entire pages without having to trim a single picture. If you want to add details you can journal on the cards, add accessories or stamps. Check out the cute items you receive in the accessory pack:
I am so hooked. I printed up about 100 photos to start my Project Life album. I knew that was more than enough pictures to last me a long time. I was a little intimidated, sat down to start my album and just over an hour later I had used all of my photos and completed 10 pages! It is as easy as it sounds and I was very pleased with how they turned out. I am especially excited that our memories are being documented again. Previous to this, my photos were all stuck on the computer and hardly looked at. Here are some of my pages using the Project Life by Stampin' Up line. The Project Life cards are full of color and fun pictures. You can choose between journaling cards, photos or sayings to customize the perfect page. Here is where we get to my favorite part. Stampin' Up. What do Stamps have to do with Project Life? Oh my, the ideas can go on and on and on and make such cute pages. My favorite set is the Day to Day set. Seriously how easy and brilliant is this. You can add a date, month, or season to your page so you always remember exactly when the events happened. You can see an example below. I also used this set on my sons birthday to document the date and age. Not only am I IN LOVE with Project Life by Stampin' Up!, but oh my goodness how am I just now discovering Clear Stamps! I have used their wood stamps for so long and I have many sets that I love. I received clear stamps for the first time and they work so perfectly with project life. Being able to see through the clear block you can add the picture, word or details perfectly where you wanted it to be on your project life card.
If you have not yet discovered Project Life you have got to check it out! Seriously the most fantastic memory documenting option for a busy parent. Paired with the gorgeous Stampin' Up designs is truly a winning combination.
