Introducing Project Life


We are so so so excited to let you know Stampin' Up! has partnered with the amazing Becky Higgins to bring you the real deal-authentic Project Life products, now in exclusive Stampin' Up! colors and designs.

If you've somehow missed the Project Life craze and are wondering what it's all about, we'll fill you in: it's a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It's a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

 Here are the items you’ll be able to purchase on May 1:

PPA 197 - Sketch Challenge

We have a really fun sketch challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts! I'm excited to see all the creations from our talented design team members.
Sometimes cute happens—and you’ve just gotta share it! 
  •  For today's project I used the new Sweetie Pie (love the name) and Sweetie Pie Frames stamps sets. 
  • Have you tried Stampin' Up!s photopolymer stamps yet? I hadn't until now and I'm really diggin' them. 
  • They stick beautifully to the clear blocks, stamp perfectly and clean with ease. The only downside is they have a "rubber-ish" sort of odor, but I don't mind it. Plus, the smell is one sure way to know it is a true photopolymer stamp and not silicone. 
  • They are also not "squishy" like silicone stamps, so you get a clean & crisp image every time.

Stamps: Sweetie Pie136849, Sweetie Pie Frames 137121 ans Really Good Greetings 130333 
Paper: Whisper White CS 100730, Gumball Green CS 126840, Midnight Muse CS 126843 and Watercolor Wonder DSP 132994
