When the highly anticipated Project Life kits finally arrived in the shop, I managed to get some. I'd seen pictures of the boxes and some of the cards and had an idea of the colour schemes but it wasn't until they arrived (in the biggest box of scrapbooking supplies that I've ever received!) that I could finally appreciate what was inside the box of each core kit.
Firstly, you get a lot of cards. In the full core kits, there are over 500 3x4 cards and over 60 4x6 cards, whilst in a mini kit you get 80 3x4 cards and 20 4x6 cards. The designs are repeated and in the full kits, there can be 10 cards of one design. This makes them ideal for splitting and sharing with a friend (which I did with Jen G!).
The next few photos show the inside of the boxes of the Jade, Honey and Midnight (mixed in together), Seasons and Wellington kits that I bought:
The following pictures show some of the designs on the cards (click on photos to enlarge to see more detail). NB. they only represent about half of the cards that you actually get in each core kit.

What I really like about the kits is that not only do they co-ordinate within a kit but it is really easy to mix and match the designs from different kits. The designs are beautiful, easy to use and I have really enjoyed using them. Even if you don't do or have any intention of doing Project Life, the kits are still very usable on traditional scrapbook layouts in place of papers. And because you get so many copies of each design, there's no need to feel like you have to hoard your favourite designs.
Come back tomorrow to see how I've used them to record some recent memories.
All of the Project Life ranges can be found here in the shop.
