Like I mentioned yesterday, on this coming Monday, March 25, Project Life is going to be on HSN!
HSN will be offering two complete packages including a scrapbook, a set of page protectors, page dividers and a core kit. The two sets that will be available are the not-yet-released Jade and Blush editions.
The Blush edition is very girly and childlike.
The Jade edition is more neutral. I think it might be my favorite Project Life edition to date. In fact, when I got it in the mail yesterday, I sort of freaked out and decided that I HAD to use it for 2013 (I originally was going to save it for 2014). Thankfully, color-wise, it works super well with the Seafoam kit. 🙂 I'm sure I'll find plenty of other uses for Seafoam. Maybe a vacation mini album? A catch-up project? Something else! 🙂
Because I was so excited, I made a video, where you can see the kit elements, sample cards, etc.
You can see many of the cards in my week eight layout.
Week eight included my day in the life, so it was a massive weeks in terms of volume of pictures. You can see I again included my Day in the Life journaling page right in the album. I love all the little details that it mentions, all of which I otherwise would have forgotten.
Here's a close up of the first page. Everything is from the Jade kit except the date card since I already had that stamped and ready to go. I love, love, love the colors in this kit. On the bottom photo of me, I simply cut that bracket shape out of one of the journaling cards.
In the middle row, the first two pictures are instagrams. I developed them 3×3, then mounted them to the journaling cards. For the picture of Adeline on the potty chair, I used a razor blade to cut the scallop so that it could go on top of the picture.
Here is the second spread. I inserted a picture Elias colored on the back side of the day in the life insert because I ended up not writing much on the second sheet.
I then used a Design G page protector (like last month) to include my favorite Day in the Life photos. I find this approach to be very easy. A single journaling card provides additional context for the photos.
When you turn the page, you see the back of the Day in the Life insert + a Design H insert. I simply had too many photos this week + I loved being about to show y'all a few more Jade journaling cards. On the Day in the Life insert, I love the iPhone Facetime photo + the photo of our coat hook. They are both “right now” shots that I think will be especially fun to see 25 years from now.
The first side of Design H was about making cookies with the kids. I love what the Instagram cookie photo adds to the story.
Here's the last spread. One of the many things I like about the jade kit are the diversity of “design element” cards like the today is a gift, chevron and living in the moment cards that you see here.
On the last page I used Design F to work in a bunch of photos + stories. I really like how the spread came together.
So, if you want the Jade edition (or the Blush edition), here are the sale details.
Becky and Lisa have both posted on their blogs that the kits will be at a super low value price, but per HSN rules, they can't share the price ahead of time. If you were to buy the items on Amazon, the price would be about $100.
I'm so excited about this sale because we Project Life fans get a great deal + so many people who have never heard about Project Life are going to be introduced to it.
Project Life will be sold during the Today's Special time slots. According to Lisa's blog, “HSN has ordered a TON of kits but no one knows for sure how quickly they will sell out. Lisa will continue to present Project Life during these times, until they are all out of stock. *all times are EST and are 1 hour time slots.”
