Has anyone seen any if the PL stuff at M's yet? BH said some of the stores may have already started putting it out, supposed to be out on Friday. There will be 2 exclusive kits to M's in August.

I asked mine on Monday about it (for the 3rd time) and they didn't even know who Becky Higgins was or anything about Project Life. I plan to wait a few more days and swing by again.

I was going to stop at a larger store this week but think I'll wait until next week if the majority were suppossed to have it stocked on Friday. I don't need any of the kits, got what they have at HL and 2Ps but curious to see what else they'll have, cardstock, page protectors etc. Very happy to hear they'll eventually have exclusive kits. I wonder if they'll be excluded from the coupons?

I think it would be a mistake if they excluded the coupon. Hobby Lobby sold out almost as quick as they could stock them because people were allowed to use the coupons. Granted, HL did get wise and discounted them to 30% off (instead of the 40% coupon).

I completely agree and cannot imagine them doing it but stranger things have happened. Look at all the changes to J's....no die cuts, no magazines....I get they need to make a profit but you have to have some incentive for your customer to come through the doors.

At one of M's locations here in Colorado, they had the labels all up,
ready for PL, but no product yet. That was 2 days ago.

If you check BH blog, she has a list of the 700 M's that will be carrying PL, this will save you some time in searching. It doesn't help that when you call no one knows what you're taking about LOL, but at least you can direct your energy in going to a store on the list and standing a chance of finding the products The blog also has some exclusive binders to M's for PL as well.

I just saw that "exclusive to M's" chevron binder that coordinates with Honey on Becky's blog. Be still my heart. I must have that!!!! I checked the list of stores and my local store is on it. I am going out tomorrow to check after my haircut appointment.

The two Michael's I frequent are on the list to get it. So, I thought I would stop by one of them this morning...not only do they not have it, the sales people have NO clue what it is.

Wouldn't it be nice if the craft and hobby stores would actually hire one or two people who KNOW something about the craft and hobby stuff that they sell??


Have a great day!

M's in Carmel, IN has it! I really wanted the Cinnamon album that has the words all over it (the one at M's is black, unlike the one at HL which was brown?), but my M's app didn't have a 40% coupon. Oh, well, I work right around the corner so hopefully I'll find a coupon before they sell out of it!

Saw it today, and bought Kraft. They only had 2 of each kit out, 2 of each mini kit, a few Journaling card sets, a pack of mixed envelopes, the larger boxes of protectors, 3 sets of dividers, but I was surprised that besides the pack of "weird" page protectors---the half page ones, that they did not have any other individual packs of 12 page protectors,only the large boxes. They sure had nice albums though! I think I need the Chevron Honey one.

The Michaels in Topeka had a full endcap of the PL stuff. I had bought the Honey kit at HL and was excited to see the chevron binder that goes with it -- so of course, I bought that one.

I went by my Michael's in Nashville, TN. They had it setup at an end-cap but no items yet. Looks like they will have Honey and Midnight for sure though...

Found it at the Denver store on Colo Blvd. Everything was fully stocked. I have all the kits so I grabbed the Kraft dividers (too cute ), large grid cardstock and the small pack of assorted half page protectors. Maybe it's just me but the material on the binders seems very easy to damage. There was one unwrapped and it didn't seem very durable. If you accidentally set something on it or brush it agains something, it seems like it would bend or scratch very easily. Wish they were pleather or covered in material. The designs were great especially the ones for Kraft! For those of you that have some of the other binders, what's your opinion on the binders with the slick surface?

Anyone that has the albums - how is the quality? Are they heavy-duty enough or kind of flimsy?

I really don't NEED to go get more PL stuff, but I can't stop! Ugh. I really want Kraft...

Scrapincat, where are you finding the list of 700 Ms stores that will carry PL? I'm not seeing it on her blog. Thx

Never mind -- I found it. It's in the body of her June 20th post; NOT in store locations where I was looking

There is a link to the list of stores in one of her blog posts. I had a hard time finding it too.

The only M's coupon I have right now is $5 off every $25 spent.

The albums look really cute, especially the Honey, but with being all shrink wrapped, it was hard to tell the quality. Know my Jade album from HSN has lots of scratches etc. to the cover and almost sent it back.

Do all M's stores accept J coupons? Do you know if they'll let you use one of those with an M coupon too (for different things?).

As far as I know all M's take J's coupons but they have to be the original coupon and not printed on the computer. You can only use one coupon per day at M's so you would not be able to use one of each.

I would call your M's about taking computer printed coupons because my M's told me they do accept them and it worked when I did it. I asked if it was just at that store but they told me it was the same at all stores. So call and ask!

My Ms takes printed computer printed coupons from J and HL. I've been waiting for Ms to get the PL line so I can use my 50% off coupons (Js issued the coupon in late April and they didn't expire until June 30). Need to take my 2 yr old with me so she can buy a kit for mommy.

I saw an album for the Midnight collection that wasn't previewed as one of the Michaels exclusives for PL. Remember the Amy Tangerine 12x12 album that was black and had the cameras drawn in white? It's been repurposed/reused as a Midnight kit-coordinating album.

I saw that as well. I actually have the camera binder but it's fabric covered which I prefer. Thought it was interesting they used the same design.

I have the fabric binder, too -- but I've never used it. I'm probably going to sell it at some point. It's never been out of the plastic!
