The 3 Essential Components of Project Life
The three basic items you need to complete a Project Life binder album are a Binder, a Core Kit, and a pack of Photo Pocket Pages. These three items are sold separately. There is no full kit containing all three. Mini Albums for smaller projects are designed with Photo Pocket Pages sewn in, so only a Mini Kit in addition is needed to complete a Project Life Mini Album.
1. Photo Pocket Pages. Becky Higgins offers a myriad of layout styles across packs of Photo Pocket Pages. Design A includes four 3-by-4-inch vertical pockets between four 6-by-4-inch horizontal pockets; Design B includes six 3-by-4-inch horizontal pockets under three 6-by-4-inch vertical pockets; Design K works beautifully with Instagram photos, including six 4-by-4 pockets and four 3-by-4-inch vertical pockets; and so on, all the way from Design A to Design L, each with a different pocket layout.
Packs of Photo Pocket Pages are offered in different quantities. All Big Packs of Photo Pocket Pages have 60 pages, designed and sized to fill a Project Life 12-by-12 binder nicely when the pages are full of photos, plus journaling cards, plus title cards. Big Packs come in your choice of a single layout design, or a variety pack. Big Variety Pack 1 includes 10 pages each of Designs A, B, C, D, E, and F. Big Variety Pack 2 includes 40 pages of Design A and 20 pages of Design D. Regular packs of each individual design include 12 pages.
2. Binder or Mini Album. Based on the size of your photo journaling projects, choose from Binders and Mini Albums. Binders are 12-by-12, with 3-rings, and are designed and sized to work with Becky Higgins Photo Pocket Pages. They come in a wide variety of colors which coordinate with the cards in Project Life Core Kits.
Mini Albums measure 10-1/2 by 9-1/4 inches and are designed for smaller projects. They come with 20 Photo Pocket Pages sewn in, holding a total of 80 4-by-6 horizontal photos or Project Life Cards, as well as 80 3-by-4-inch vertical photos or Project Life Cards. The Mini Album also features a front window designed to hold a 3-by-4-inch photo or Project Life Card.
3. Core Kits and Mini Kits. The professional artistry in Becky Higgins Core Kits adds pizzazz to your Project Life scrapbook, and they include the pieces that upgrade your scrapbook to the designer level. Core Kits contain Title Cards, Journaling Cards, and First and Last Page Cards, each in a professionally designed color scheme. Title cards are intended to label your layouts, while the optional Journaling Cards allow you to write captions, notes, and/or memories to accompany your photos, thereby turning the scrapbook into an authentic Photo Journal. If you decide not to write on the cards, simply flip them over to find a colorful designer print on the back that adds decoration, sized to fit perfectly in the 3-by-4-inch slots of the Photo Pocket Pages. Bi-fold cards are for when you want to write more.
A Project Life Core Kit contains 616 cards: 500 3-by-4-inch journaling cards, 40 bi-fold journaling cards, 8 first page cards (four 4-by-6-inch and four 3-by-4-inch), 8 last page cards (four 4-by-6-inch and four 3-by-4-inch), and 60 4-by-6-inch title cards. Everything coordinates beautifully, taking undue stress out of the scrapbooking experience.
A project Life Mini Kit contains 100 cards: 10 4-by-6-inch title cards, 10 4-by-6-inch journaling cards, and 80 3-by-4-inch journaling cards.
Note from Becky Higgins:
Adding a lot of extra bulky or dimensional items could result in thicker pages, with the result that 60 pages may not fit into a single Binder. In this case, spread your project across more than one binder. After all, your Project Life scrapbooks can be as individual as your life.

That said, this item was as described, arrived on time, etc, etc. My rating is due to my belief after seeing them that the number of duplicate cards in a core kit set greatly diminishes the value of the set (this was my first - and LAST - core kit purchase). Honestly, I was disappointed enough that I would have rated it lower but in fairness, the cards are good quality and as described.... just too many of the same card over and over (more than 45 - yes, forty five! - that's four tens and five ones - of some prints!!!) (This picture is after I gave my sister several of each print in the repeat cards - and still, I have that many of several prints.... the description should tell you this!!!)
I loved all of the old Project Life core kits, but the new ones (and I bought a couple!) are just amazing in quality. Since Becky teamed up with American Crafts there are no more cards that have bad printing, bad cutting, or are missing. What is also very cool is that there are a lot more journaling card designs. Older kits had twenty different cards, but these news ones have lots more! I counted about fifty in the Jade kit. The benefit is that the cards don't feel as repetitive as they did in the older kits. Cards are still printed on a good quality card paper but the boxes are really nice now (like the Seafoam and Olive ones). They're much sturdier than the folded cardboard ones and they have magnetic closures, but they're also prettier with more graphic and color-coded labels for what kit it is so you can easily find it in a stack if you have more than one. Great job on all of the new core kits!!
The Seafoam edition is my go-to for my current Project Life album. The colors are perfect for me - a lot of neutrals to pair with whatever else I'm putting in the album, and my favorite pop color, teal. I also really like the yellow gender neutral baby edition core kit (which I think is no longer available?) that I am using to document my baby/toddler years, especially all the prompts (things that were happening in the world the year you were born, monthly stats, etc). I just bought the Honey edition core kit to go with my old childhood and high school photos. I love the fun and bright colors and designs and they will pair perfectly with my childhood and teen years.
To address some concerns I saw in other reviews:
-The paper is thicker than regular printer paper, but not as thick as cardstock. I think it is perfect as is; it feels high quality and not too thin, and I've never ripped a card in my 3+ years of using these kits.
-In my Honey edition kit, there are no more than 10 cards of each different design. I'm pretty sure this was true of my other 2 kits as well. If you have a huge amount of one design, perhaps it's an error. I suggest seeing if you can exchange for a new kit.
-Yes, it can be annoying if there's a saying that you don't want to constantly show up in your album; that's one of the reasons I like to look at all the card designs for an edition before I buy it (see below for my tip on that). The Honey edition mostly has a design or journaling space on the other side of a card with a saying, so if you don't want to use 10 of that saying, you don't have to waste those cards.
TIP: To see all of the card designs for the edition that you're interested in, check the Becky Higgins official website - they've added a .pdf document for most of the editions that shows a preview of all of the cards (there are dozens of different designs and the main product photos only show a few). If the physical kit is no longer available on the site, check the digital edition, as I believe all the card designs are the same. Super helpful!
There appears to have been a small manufacturing defect with my most recent order - the top 3 4x6 cards arrived damaged (somewhat wrinkled). They are shipped VERY well so it must have happened at the factory. My other 2 kits that I bought from Amazon arrived in perfect condition with no damaged cards, and only 3 cards were affected in this entire Honey edition set (I checked), so I'm keeping my review 5 star. While I'm annoyed, this problem will not stop me from buying again - I'm probably going to buy the Midnight edition next!
