Ladies … are you ready for this? The BABY Editions of Project Life are now available in DIGITAL format! TODAY!! But wait – there’s more. Along with this announcement comes another announcement (because we’re fun like that). Introducing …
What is AC Digitals and what does this have to do with Project Life?
I’m glad you asked! Today is the launch of a brand-new scrapbooking site specifically for digital awesomeness from the following brands, all part of the American Crafts family. And since Project Life is now going to hit retail shelves in Spring 2013 thanks to American Crafts … we are a part of that family! (group hug)
And in case you didn’t realize … the ever-so-popular brands of Amy Tangerine and Dear Lizzy are part of the American Crafts family as well. Their stuff will be popping up all over ACDigitals.com and in fact – Amy’s Ready, Set, Go collection is available TODAY!
It is with much enthusiasm that we share this news with you today. We’ve been working hard behind-the-scenes to create a site that was clean, organized, simple, user-friendly, full of awesome digital designs, and priced to be affordable. And speaking of affordable … we want to kick off this announcement with a BANG! Everything that we have in store during this week’s Grand Opening is 25% off!! Um, hello.
Let me be sure that I’m clear about this: The BABY Editions of Project Life are 25% off this week!! So not only are they available for the first time ever, but they’re on sale too! (high-five) I know there are questions with this announcement but some of you are ready to shop right this INSTANT so click on over to ACDigitals.com and go explore! Happy shopping!
questions | answers
Q: When is the physical product for those Baby Editions showing up?
A: We expect to see these arrive to Amazon in the next couple weeks but until we receive further information, I don’t have a date yet. We anticipate that you’ll be able to get the Baby Editions in time to put under the Christmas tree if you’re planning to do that. We are trying really, really, really hard to get the other editions (Olive, Seafoam, Childhood) here quickly as well but they’re a bit behind Baby and “late December” is all we know right now. If you are outside the U.S. you’ll have to check with your local distributor for timing.
Q: I’ve been sleeping under a rock. What are the Baby Editions of Project Life?
A: Oh, just the best. thing. EVER. Sounds like you missed my big reveal back in August. Have a look at this video and you’ll be totally in the loop. If you don’t have time for a 20-minute video, it’s basically the awesomeness of Project Life (simple, fun, pocket-based memory-keeping system) but sooo many of the cards that come in the Core Kit actually have specific journaling prompts to help you really document lots of fun details and anecdotes about Baby’s First Year. Truly, this is the ultimate baby shower gift or gift for any mama who hasn’t documented their baby’s first year – whether their baby’s still a baby – or in college now. It’s that cool.
Q: I’m all about the physical product with no interest in doing digital pages, so why would I care about ACDigitals.com?
A: If you want a heads-up on some of the designs + colors + details + journaling prompts that are on the Baby cards, consider all the images you’ll see on ACDigitals.com as sneak peeks for what you’ll soon have in physical format. Aaaannnnd … if you prefer “alternate” spelling to some of the words we have in the Baby Editions (ex – Mum instead of Mom, favourite instead of favorite) – those cards are all there for you … right here … for FREE. Some of you outside the U.S. have requested that and we’re happy to make those available. Because we’re nice like that.
Q: What about JessicaSprague.com – I thought that’s where your digital stuff was sold?
A: We initially made our Project Life digi designs available at JessicaSprague.com and we are very grateful to them for helping make it possible when we really weren’t equipped to do it on our own in the earlier days. This new partnership with American Crafts brings about many changes. So so so many exciting changes. One of those things is the launch of this new site to bring all of the brands under the AC umbrella in one place – all shiny + new + beautiful. Hugs to Jessica + her peeps.
Q: Some stuff here, some stuff there?
A: All Project Life digi products that were already on JessicaSprague.com are still there – and will remain there through December 31. Then we’ll move them over to ACDigitals.com and we’ll keep you updated during that transitional time. All NEW Project Life digi products that are showing up now and in the future will be on ACDigitals.com. So today we’re launching with our 3 Baby Editions (For Him, For Her, and the gorgeous neutral colors) and other new designs are showing up soon too! After January 1, Project Life digi products will be found in one spot + one spot only – ACDigitals.com.
Q: So what about the Olive Edition, Seafoam Edition, and the Childhood Editions?
A: Yep – they’re on their way to ACDigitals.com too – and soon! In fact, we are launching new designs EVERY MONDAY in December – so definitely check back each week!
Q: I know American Crafts, Pebbles, Crate Paper all have more collections than what I’m seeing on ACDigitals.com today. Will we see more?
A: Absolutely – and we’ll be adding more + more … and more … over time. Mondays are the magical days that we release new stuff so check back each week!
And because I know you’re excited about all of this, I know you’re wondering how you can follow AC Digitals through social media so you don’t miss a thing!
Head on over and check out the beautiful new site, the Baby Editions, the freebies and giveaway opportunities, and all the other fun stuff from the other brands too! Wait, what was that about freebies? Yes – we have a handful of FREE Holiday 3×4 Project Life Cards calling your name. Right here. Right now.
giveaway. of course!
And speaking of free … it’s not a true Grand Opening without a giveaway, am I right!? Leave a comment with your first name + city + state/country and we will choose 2 winners this week who will win the full collection of the Baby Edition digi elements (winners choose between neutral, For Him, For Her). Winners will be announced next Monday at the bottom of this blog post so be sure to check back!
If you love what you see, there are lots of people who have helped make this possible – from the designers to the brands to the American Crafts team to my brilliant husband David. But there are 2 people in particular who have just really put in most of the elbow grease on this project and they not only have the rockin’ skills to boot, but they are the sweetest girls and we’re so very blessed to have them as a part of our family! Thank you Kari and Laurie!! You both need a serious nap this week.
