Hope to see you there!


Summer So Far and a Sneak Peek

Oh, my! Where have the weeks gone. It seems to happen like that every year in June … I’m so sorry that my posting has taken a backseat for the past few weeks. Hopefully, you have been out enjoying the beginning of your summer, too.

So what has been going on in my neck of the woods? Let’s see … last time I left off with you I was heading off to HSN with Lisa for the June 11th show. Here’s a selfie of us in between appearances. (Left to Right: Me, Jennifer Duncan, and Lisa Bearnson) I feel so grateful to work with such wonderful people!


I was home for a day, and then left home again for a week to go on our Summer family vacation to San Francisco, California.

Our favorite thing was to take the red, open-topped, double-decker bus around town to see all of the sites. The ticket was good for three days and we could hop on and off as many times as we wanted. We saw every site there was to see and loved every minute of it. San Fran is such a cool city!


Along with our 4th of July celebrations last week, this cute girl of mine turned eight years old. She was also baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday. We are so thankful to all of our friends and family who came to spend time with us on this special day.


As you can imagine I haven’t had a lot of time for scrapping, but I *DO* have a sneak peek to share with you of one of Lisa’s new products that will be on HSN on July 23rd. These are the Inspired Inc. All Occasion Title Cards … and you know what is AWESOME about these babies?! Not only are there cards in there for every holiday and season of the year (which is awesome all by itself), but dozens of the cards include dimensional elements! How cool is that?! If you are like me and love embellishing your pocket-style cards, you are going to love these. Here is a a peek.


And then of course I need to show you a pocket-style page I put together using these cute cards.







As we get closer to the show, I will share with you some traditional-style scrapbook pages I created with these cute cards. Guess what?! Even though the show is not until July 23rd, you can pick up this cute pocket card kit now if you would like! You can FIND THEM HERE in the HSN.com store.

Have a great week!

One of the products Lisa has today is the Nifty Gifties Tie It On Kit. Yesterday I showed you several ideas with this kit. I’m back with a few more today! This kit is so fun and easy. I love it!









We hope you’ll join us! Happy Summer!


Off to HSN! and Nifty Gifties: Part 1

Hi Friends!

I’m on my way to HSN in Florida with Lisa Bearnson, but thought I would pop on and show you a few more things you can make with the NEW Nifty Gifties Tie It On Kit (one of the new products Lisa will be selling).

I LOVE these kits. They make giving a gift card a bit more creative and personal, because let’s face it, giving gift cards seems so impersonal, BUT there are a LOT of people who request them as gifts. They are perfect for those teens who just want money to go shopping, or for the person who is so hard to buy for because they seem to already have everything. These are also great to say thank you to teachers, business associates, or clients. I love that there are little coupons and cards included in the kit so you can write a little note to the recipient.



Give someone a round of applause for a job well done or a bit accomplishment in their life. I purchased this hand-clapper at the Dollar Tree, but have also seen them at party stores.



A gift for dad to his favorite store, restaurant, car wash, or golf course perhaps? :)



How about a mug shaped card?





Or a happy treat to say thanks to a friend.




I’ll be back with more ideas tomorrow! See you then!
