HSN Recap

Goodness! Where have the last two weeks gone?! We had a wonderful whirlwind of a trip to HSN and then when I got home, I got sick. I guess those 24-hour craft days combined with a crazy traveling schedule took it’s toll on me.

HSN was a blast! As always! I love going there. We always have a great time. Everyone is so nice there and the products did really well! It was so fun to watch Lisa present the Holiday Nifty Gifties I designed. Thank you to everyone who bought one! I hope you are receiving them and love them as much as I do! Please share what you make! I’d love to see!

Here’s a picture of Jennifer Duncan and I setting up tables at HSN. This was about 2 am, so we were a bit goofy!


Here’s another one of me, Lisa, and Brad Brusa (from Craftwell). Love these two so much! They are so much fun to work with!


I’ve been enjoying fall with my family and have been helping my daughter get ready for her first dance this coming weekend. She asked her date out by leaving a fake pumpkin on his porch filled with about 2000 tootsie rolls. He had to open all of the tootsie rolls to find the letters of her name (numbered, so they were easier to unscramble).


We used black vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo machine to add a face to the pumpkin and then this is the poem that she wrote to go with it.


I haven’t done much scrapping since I got back from HSN, but I do have a layout to share that I did awhile ago. I have a special place in my heart for daily deal sites, especially ScrapbookSteals.com. :) I bought the WRMK Jet Set collection and scrapped this two-pager using a Scrapbook Generation sketch as a starting point. I chose the green cardstock background to pick up the green color of the river in the photos.


I can’t believe how fast the kids are growing up … they look so little here and this was only three years ago! Time is flying!


I pulled out some letters from my stash and used orange microbeads to add texture to the word “windy”.

No, this bridge isn’t really called Windy Bottom Bridge … we just named it that because the public restrooms were porta-potty style and they were configured in such a way (I don’t quite understand it) where they vented outside to the canyon below … or something to that effect. It made for a very, windy bottom experience and was quite terrifying … you felt like you were going to be sucked into the canyon. YIKES! Okay … more info than you probably wanted to know … but if you ever visit Navajo Bridge (near Glen Canyon in Arizona), beware of the restrooms! It’s a strange experience.


I added some yellow enamel dots from my stash here-and-there, and a bit of washi tape from an older American Crafts Halloween collection.


Thanks for popping by! I hope you have a beautiful fall week! Enjoy the last few weeks of October! It’s my FAVORITE time of year and it passes too quickly!

Talk to you again soon!

Have you marked your calendars for October 7th to watch 24-hour Craft Day on HSN? If you love pocket scrapbooking, you’ll want to tune in at 5:00 ET. Lisa will be presenting three Project Life Value Kits that include 6×8 albums and sheet protectors. I love these new kits! They include the perfect amount of pocket cards along with a generous stack of accent pieces. They make putting together a coordinating album a BREEZE! Take a look at the three choices below.

LUCKY CHARM VALUE ALBUM KIT – Every single card in this kit is dripping in gold foil. Swoon!











NOTES & THINGS VALUE ALBUM KIT – More gold foil! This is just so pretty!






LOVE NOTES VALUE ALBUM KIT – The cards and chipboard pieces in this kit are all accented with beautiful, red glitter. Adorable!











I loved working on these albums! If you’d like one (or more) for yourself, tune into HSN on October 7th at 5:00 pm ET.

Ooo! And one last reminder … you have until tomorrow night to enter my Holiday Nifty Gifties Giveaway … Don’t miss it!

Patterned Paper!

***Scroll down to the post below this one for the Holiday Nifty Gifties Giveaway … Entries open until Sunday, October 6th!***

Next Tuesday, October 7th, I will be in Florida with Lisa Bearnson helping out with her shows for 24-hour craft day. Do you plan on watching? I love 24-hour craft days. Back in the day, my mom, sister, and I would get together to scrapbook and watch all day long. It was so much fun!

This next product, Inspired Inc. Pocket Template Tool & Paper Kit, is another favorite of mine. This kit includes 64 sheets of patterned paper in a rainbow of colors, a cutting mat, craft knife, and a photo template. The papers are beautiful! I love all the various patterns in the rich bright colors. I had a blast mixing them together … like picking paint from a palette … a little of this a little of that. :)

Here’s a peek at the papers in the kit (you will receive at least two of each pattern, making it perfect for those of you who like to scrapbook double-pagers.)




How about some pages with this kit?





















Isnt’ this a fun, happy kit?! I just love playing with these papers!

Did you notice the 3D Embellishment stickers on these pages? They are also available at HSN.com. Check out the 3D Embellishment kit HERE. They are a great price right now, too!




I hope you are feeling inspired! Lots of fun new goodies to play with! I’ll be sharing more projects throughout the weekend before I head out to Florida.

See you again very soon!
