Welcome to . . . Project Mouse

I feel like I say "I'm so excited" about every new release. But, you guys, this time I'm BEYOND excited. Sahlin Studio and I have been working our tails off to create something that I am so proud of, I feel like I could cry.

Introducing . . . Project Mouse.


Krista Sahlin and I were talking about how we would like to try documenting an entire Disney trip using Project Life - or as I call it, "Pocket Style". Then we realized that we were BOTH in the beginning stages of a Disney-themed collection of products and that we both had the same vision for a complete memory keeping solution for documenting Disney trips! Because we LOVE working together, we knew we had to join forces.

Krista & I really want to get across that Project Mouse is MORE than just another digi-kit. It's a system, a solution, an important tool in your memory keeping. We even wrote up a Mission Statement.
Today, we are thrilled to be releasing the first 4 products in our Project Mouse line. These products have been created as a sort of 'core' to the collection - a massive stash of basics - to start documenting your Disney memories, or ANY memories in fact. (You'll see when we get to my team's layouts how incredibly versatile Project Mouse is!) But believe me, there's LOTS more Project Mouse coming over the next month and a half! This is only the beginning . . .

Ok, ok! Enough jibber jabber. Let's look at the products!!

"Project Mouse: Bundle No. 1"



It all comes bundled together at a discounted price, but each individual pack is in the store as well.

"Project Mouse: Basics Card Pack"



"Project Mouse: Quote Cards"


Just like mentioned last week, all my card packs come with a free Corner Rounding action. It'll turn any PNG card from


I mainly use rounded corners for my cards, but rounding the corners can be a pain. This is all about scrapping QUICKLY, right? This action is definitely a time saver! (Instructions on installation and using the action in Photoshop are included as well.)

And for those interested in using Project Mouse as printables, you'll be happy to know all the card packs come with easy pre-made printable sheets!

"Project Mouse: Papers"



"Project Mouse: Embellishments"


Oh and good news - all new products will be 20% off today (excluding the bundle because that's already 31% off the regular price!)!!

Whew!! I told you guys yesterday to 'hold onto your ears'. Now you know why, right?!

(Pssst! There's a freebie at the end of this post that you'll definitely want to download!! So, keep on reading. . . )

My plan right now is to conduct a little experiment. I'm going to try and scrap my ENTIRE September 2012 Disneyland trip Pocket Style and use Project Mouse to get things started!!

Goals of my experiment:

1) To see if I like Pocket Style enough for an entire album.
2) To see how much I miss creating and then looking at traditional pages in my trip album.
3) To see how long it takes, and if pocket-style is really as quick and efficient as I think it is.

I figure, I'm aesthetically drawn to Pocket Style and I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to get a whole trip done for once!! Haha! It never hurst to try, right? We'll see how it goes. I'll be talking about this "experiment" here on my blog as I go along with all the Project Mouse releases.

Here's my first Project Mouse layout for this trip:


Another cool thing is: Krista is all about printing her cards before her trip and using them on her trip to collect autographs, have her kids write down memories, and then start keeping her book in real Project Life page protectors right then and there.


That is something I'll plan to do with Scarlett down the road when she's a little older, for NOW I'm just all about creating digital pages of trips after we return home. So we have both spectrums of how to use Project Mouse covered. Cool, huh?

Now I have a whole ton of layouts to share with you created by the amazing Britt Girls. We'll all be posting our layouts in the brand new Project Mouse Flickr Group too! We hope you'll come join the group and post your Project Mouse LOs there too! Pretty soon it'll be a group FULL of amazing layouts to inspire and delight each other.

Ok onto the team layouts. Be prepared for AWESOMENESS.

  1. Britt!!!!!! I have been on the look out for almost a full year now, hoping some talented designer would take up the challenge. Of course it was you!! I am so absolutely proud of you and can't wait to use this for our upcoming trip! You knocked this right out of the park. I think I will even print some off early to carry in my bag while we're waiting in line, or at a meal. Thank you xo

  2. Doh! And Krista too xoxo I'm pretty sure the majority of my first Disney album wouldn't exist without either of you.

  3. Oh my goodness I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I actually squealed out loud when I saw the freebie - I love those character outlines! I'm going to get a lot of use out of this collab - I've been looking for something just like this becaue I've got hundreds of Disney photos waiting to be scrapped! Thank you both!!!

  4. Wow, you girls have outdone yourselves! This collection is truly fabulous - I love it! :)

  5. Talk about Magical, Ladies! Wow! Thanks so much for creating this project prior to our family trip for my 40th -- it'll make documenting it a breeze! And because we can pre-plan a bit know that I know the elements and I can print some out and take them along with us, I'll be able to get the entire family involved. Fabulous job! Thanks for the freebie!

  6. WOW! This is FABULOUS! I think this will be perfect for our upcoming Disney trip!! Love the character cards too! Thanks so much!

  7. Talk about Dreams Come True - this collection is perfect. I've got hundreds of Disney pics I just couldn't get into an album, but now I can! And, the happiest news of all is that there is even more to come. I can't wait to see what you both come up with next.

  9. Britt & Krista, this is probably my most favorite collection...EVER! It is AMAZING! My goal is to complete an album with it too. Can't wait to see more!!! And thanks for the AWESOME freebie! :)

  10. OMG!!!! This is just what I have been wanting for my upcoming trip to DL! I think I am going to have to go and get some more printer ink this weekend so I can prep my sn@p binder for my trip. Thank you!

  11. Thanks for the cute freebie. I must say that I like the clean style of the PL system, but I have tried real pocket style albums and really did not like being "limited" to a certain number of photos going a particular direction. Going digi, I could change it to my liking.

    ReplyDelete
  12. A lot of the sample layouts show a white alpha with red background. Is this included in the collection or is it in another kit? Love this whole concept!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have been putting off investing in a project life kit, I have way too much stuff at home to use up, but I am so getting this kit especially to capture our trip we just came back from!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Kathleen - The alpha is from the "Just Plain Fun" kit!

  15. We are going to Disneyland in March and this hits the spot!!! Thank you!

  16. Oh my gosh, I'm so excited! I can't wait to use this system on my trip to Disney World in May! This is absolutely perfect! Thank you both for creating this amazing system! Love it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. OMG! I love this idea Britt and thank you for the wonderful silhouettes. I will definitely be using those too. I have not gotten into the Project Life craze yet, but will definitely be getting in to the Project Mouse craze! Thanks again!!

  18. Love this! Am going to take the challenge and try to scrap the 4 day getaway @ Disney World that my granddaughter and I took in Oct. 2009.

    Am looking forward to the upcoming kits. Am hoping there might be a Disney CRUISE kit.

  19. I am also a crazy mom who has a ridiculous love of Disney! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product bundle and your experiment. I have recently started a PL for 2013 and love it so much that I thought to myself why haven't i scrapped our Disney trips like this??? I definitively plan to use your kit for our trip to WDW in July and might even scrap some past trips. Thank you so much for your creativity and inspiration!!

  20. Thank you so much for these wonderful freebies and for introducing me to this wonderful new style. I am wondering though...when you make your pages do you use templates to achieve this "Pronto Style" look?

    Thanks so much for all the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What an amazing bundle, Britt!! I love it! Thank you so much for the freebie cards! You're the best <3

    ReplyDelete
  22. This are AWESOME!!! So many uses I just luv`m THANK YOU ;~}

    ReplyDelete
  23. Eek! I'm so excited about this!!! We leave for WDW in a week. This has inspired me to do a project life type album with a double page for each day documenting what we did throughout the day with photos I wouldn't necessarily scrap on their own...where we ate, hidden mickeys, shopping, in the pool at the hotel.... I'm getting so excited just thinking about it. You guys really out did yourself with this one!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Britt! I LOVE this. Look forward to seeing the rest of the collection. Hopefully you or Krista can whip up some fabulous templates, also. Thanks so much for the adorable character cards!

  25. This is GREAT!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this collection!!

  26. This is absolutely out of this world I don't think I can put it into words. We are taking the boys for the first time in August and I have spent the last six months trying to visulise how I want my finished album to look and these just complete it. Can't wait for the rest.

  27. I LOVE this. I would love to see a Christmas themed Disney collection. I go to Disney World at Christmas every other year. You and Krista make the BEST Disney themed digital scrapbooking supplies! Also...love the podcast!!!

  28. You aren't the only one Over the top excited about Project Mouse! My daughters and grandchildren and I are leaving for Disneyland THIS Friday! What wonderful timing!!!

  30. I would love to see some 3" x 12" journaling spots, maybe one with ready to fill in spots for example... Where we went, rides we went on, where we ate, characters we met... It would be great for scappers like me who struggle with journaling... Keep up the good work, cant wait to use these new products to document my upcoming trip!!!!

  31. LOVE this project!! Will the font used on Alexis' 1st trip to Disneyland layout be in an upcoming part of Project Mouse or can we find it elsewhere? Thanks :)

    1. I don't know what alpha Alexis used or if its something that she made herself. I'll ask her and get back to you!

  32. This is to DIE FOR! Seriously, you are so talented! I am going to use this to make an invitation for Relief Society.

  33. I can't thank you enough for this awesome kit! BEST.DISNEY.KIT.EVER!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have been languishing over a direction for my Disney World 2012 album. The lack of Disney licensing for digital product causes a real conundrum! I mean, really, how many different ways can you use homemade mouse ears on 100 pages? :)

    This kit is AWESOME!!! Saving my money up for the bundle---and I am so glad you included pages from other parks as well. The black/red/yellow theme doesn't resonate as strongly with the other three parks, but I think it can work. I'd LOVE to see another kit that included themed-type elements and colors for the other three parks at Disney.

    Thank you so much! The freebies are so generous and the kits are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, and your "Toy Story" and "Buzz Lightyear" kits that I bought years ago will be put to use as well!

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG OMG OMG. POCKET STYLE!! I saw several of your designs on Pinterest, so I'm checking them out - and I see "POCKET STYLE". Love you, love you, love you! I created a Pinterest board named "pocket scrapbooking"; I just think that PL should not become 'the' word, like Xerox or Kleenex have.

    Ok, I'm going to calm down and go back to reading about your awesome Project Mouse kit.
