Project Life: Exclusive “Life Lists” Cards from Big Picture Classes

.

As a student of Big Picture Classes, I recently got an e-mail offer for some very cool EXCLUSIVE Project Life cards.

They’re called “Project Life Themed Cards: Life Lists” and they are awesome! I only had to see the first photo above to know I was “in” – how sad is that?? But check out the ordering page below for more pics and a video from Becky Higgins telling you all about them. The cost is $6.99 per pack and I paid $7.00 in shipping when ordering 2 packs at a time. {Yes, I got 2 then went back for 2 more}.

I have only good things to say about the customer service and packaging of this product. I got the e-mail from BPC and ordered them the same day on 04/19, received notice they had shipped on 04/22, and they arrived on 04/24. You know how when you’re super anxious to get something, that fast shipping is worth its weight in gold!

I had a customer service issue regarding shipping (an issue on my end, not theirs). BPC resolved it quickly and were super nice about it. It required special follow-up and I couldn’t be more appreciative (thank you Mark @ Big Picture Team!).

Okay, shut up Erika, these ladies just want to see the cute cards. Here ya’ go!

This is how they were shipped, in a small envelope and plastic packaging (cute logo sticker, huh?). They were in great shape, nothing bent or torn.

This is the whole batch together.

All of the cards have the same design and saying on the front and back but one side is horizontal and one is vertical. That way you can choose which orientation you want to place it on/in your project. Here are all the 4×6 cards {you get 12}.

And here are all the 3×4 cards {you get 48}. I showed half in the horizontal orientation and half in the vertical so you can see the difference.

I just love the colors and simple designs. The focus is really on storytelling via lists. A lot of them gave me a laugh and I can’t wait to fill them out over time. My head is percolating with ideas on how to use them.

In fact, I bought some extra sets because I want my whole family to fill these cards out. I think with summer boredom coming for the kids, it’ll be a great activity and something we can share and laugh about together. It’s a cheap way to keep them busy and, hey, mama gets some awesome scrapping material out of it.

I’m still not sure what I’m going to use my own set for but I think I’ll have the kids fill theirs out and take a photo to go along with each one, then fill a mini Sn@p! or Project Life album with them. I think the list topics will generate some fun, Project Life-type photos that wouldn’t otherwise make it into an album and THEY will be the photographers. How about you – how can you see using these Life Lists cards?

I don’t know if the cards are available to order for everyone or if you have to register on the BPC site first. But either way, if you would do me the favor of registering through THIS LINK, I think I get a little commission if you buy the cards. If not, no worries! Also by registering, you’ll get future cool e-mails yourself. Big Picture does amazing classes and lots of free events like online PJ parties, a huge National Scrapbooking Day event*, etc.

*YES! NSD is almost here. It’s officially the first Saturday in May (05-03-14) but the NSD joy seems to extend from late April through all of May. Now that’s MY kind of holiday! Is there anything you’d like to see at Scrapbook Obsession Blog for NSD? I’ve thought about doing a round-up of all the shopping deals, classes, etc. so please let me know if that would be helpful!

Hope you enjoyed the photos and the “Life Lists” PL cards! Even if you don’t buy them, I think they’re still a great resource for your own life lists you can scrap. That’s why I photographed each card so you can copy down all the prompts if you like :)

Enjoy and have a wonderful week.

Online Scrapbook Class: FREE 1-Week Preview of “Hello Story” by Ali Edwards

Check this out: Did you know you can get a FREE PREVIEW of Ali Edwards’ upcoming “Hello Story” class?!?! It comes with videos, a very nice .pdf handout, supply lists, and transcripts.

Then if you decide to sign up for this very cool class, you can get a 15% discount using code TIMEWITHALI through 04-10-14 (which is a full week AFTER the course starts, for you slow-committers, LOL).

I’ve done the math and with the discount it comes out to $8.25/week at full price or only $7/week with the discount. I love to share these discount codes with you because I know classes (especially by top scrapbookers like Ali) can seem expensive. But when you use the discount and break down the per week cost, I think you’ve got a deal here.

You can see from the free 1-week sample shared above what a quality course this is. If you like, you can sign up for “Hello Story” right HERE.

The 12-week class runs from 04-03-14 to 06-25-14 so you don’t have a lot of time to make up your mind. On the good side, when you decide to take the class, you don’t have that long to wait for it to start!

Please let me know if you sign up so I can live vicariously through you! I’d love to post your review on thuh blog afterward as well, if you’d be so kind :)

Also, let me know what you think of the free sample!

PS: Sheesh. I just noticed that immediately upon sign-up for the course, you get some freebies:

In the pre-classroom, which is available instantly upon registration, you’ll receive Ali’s Storyology downloadable class (valued at $14), which is the perfect warm-up for Hello Story. You’ll also receive a set of 50 downloadable Random Fact Journal Cards (valued at $5.49)!

I’m listening to Ali’s free sample now as I type this blog post. Yep, just me and Ali, hangin’ out. Even if you don’t take the class, you’d be a silly willie not to grab the free preview.

Online Scrapbook Class: Ali Edwards “Hello Story” Starting 07-08-13!

As a big fan of online scrapbooking classes {hey, I don’t even have to get out of my pajamas!} …


*Image from weheartit.com

… I wanted to make sure that you know about a very exciting class that’s about to start at Big Picture Classes. It’s part of the “4 Experts” series at BPC in 2013.

This one is by mega-popular scrapbooker and Project Life guru Ali Edwards. It goes from July 8 – September 29, 2013 {3 months!}:

In her new 12-week workshop, “Hello Story”, Ali Edwards will introduce you to 12 storytelling techniques—never-before-seen in her prior journaling workshops—that will bring creativity and clarity to both your writing and your page designs. Every week, you get to sit over Ali’s shoulder and watch her transform her story ideas into timeless, authentic, story-rich scrapbook pages.

Through dozens of in-depth videos that cover storytelling and design ideas as well as 36+ exclusive layout examples from Ali (12″ x 12″ and 8 1/2″ x 11″ layouts, plus Project Life inserts), Hello Story will inspire you to take action and give you the tools you need to tell your own stories with confidence.

Hello Story includes:

– Inspiring weekly videos from Ali
– Colorful instructional handouts with step-by-step instructions for each lesson/project
– Printable digital elements in PNG and PDF formats that relate to the weekly storytelling technique
– Freebies valued at $19.49! Immediately upon registering, you’ll receive instant access to Ali’s Storyology downloadable class – 50 printable journaling cards (great for traditional, digital, and Project Life scrapbooking). Details below.
– Supply list with live links to product resources—each weekly handout will include a list of supplies used on the example pages
– Welcome notes from Ali in the classroom
– Class syllabus and pre-class welcome video
– Reminder emails when the classroom is updated with new materials
– Message board to share your thoughts with your classmates
– Private posting gallery to share your work and view the work of your classmates
– An interactive video chat with Ali
– Email access to Ali

Hello Story with Ali Edwards
12 weeks of creative storytelling techniques with Ali Edwards
Class dates: 7/8/2013-9/29/2013
Class price: $99

WOW.

Sounds like a blast, right? And I think the $99 price tag sounds totally worth it. If you break it down, that’s only $8/week. And if you subtract out the almost $20 value of the freebies and journaling cards, it’s even less per week.

Class is about to start so get on over to BPC and get signed up, sista’! Class starts on Monday, July 8, 2013.

If you’d like to sign up or just want some more information {including videos by Ali Edwards and Stacy Julian themselves}, just click on this ->
Hello Story link :)

Man. Watching Ali talk about the class was one thing. Then to hear Stacy and have her show some teaser clips – don’t watch if you don’t want to get sucked into taking this class, LOL! Check out the layout she does with the stars. Super lovely!

What do you think of Ali’s class? Sound like a good one? Too expensive or is the price justified? Have you taken BPC classes before? I’d love to hear your thoughts and whether you are signing up for Hello Story with Ali Edwards.
