I didn't see this coming. I thought I would have to deal with being torn between the two forever. But alas, my two favorite crafty companies decided that I should not have to deal with this quandary any longer, and the two just recently partnered together as a way to make my life so much easier. THANK YOU Project Life and Stampin' Up!
As many of you know, my scrapbooking has evolved quite a bit in recent years. We had our traditional 12x12 layouts during many years of Scrap Club. Then I did the grid scrapbooking for a couple years with you all. Then as of late, my move has been more to the popular "drop-in" scrapbooking as pioneered by Project Life. For a couple years, I happily used the style of Project Life drop-in with Stampin' Up! supplies. But oh how I wanted to move to buying pre-made journal and decorative cards....
And now my dream has come true! SU and Project Life just announced that the new catalog in June will feature Project Life kits exclusively offered by SU! Not only that, but there will be journal pens, accessory packs, dies, stamps, page protectors, and even ALBUMS! I can't wait to see those!
I was super happy when I found out that demos could pre-order one of the Project Life lines, and I got it just in time to take to a weekend crop. So I have several samples to show you!
And the greater news is that you, as SU customers, can order some of the new Project Life supplies starting May 1st! I am going to hold our April group order to be entered on May 1st just so you can take advantage of this ASAP. Here are the things you can order May 1:
Now here are my samples to share!

I love to organize. And I'm a huge fan of Thirty-One bags. They are great for keeping my stamping supplies tidy.
When I found out that the February sale entailed getting my favorite bag for just $10, I asked my Thirty-One girl if we could conjure up an online party. The Organizing Utility Tote makes an awesome craft bag! It retails for $35. It has 7 amazing outer pockets and zips across the top.

I thought I would show you some ways that I use my Thirty-One Items in the craft room!
Here is another one of my drop-in pages. It's hard to tell but I included a little February calendar cut out from my planner. I am loving using those as embellishments. The papers are retired from SU last year. I used a heart doily from the retired SU papers and punched a heart with the SU punch. I always love a little twine and expect to go through quite a bit of that. It's such a good filler on my SU orders at just $2.95!
