Is Scrapbooking Coming Back to QVC?!?! And Some HSN Scrapbooking, Too

Send to Kindle

This was posted on Instagram by Erin with DCWV (Die Cuts With a View), makers of scrapbooking papers and products! {You can see their stuff on Amazon HERE and they sell a lot of it at Michaels, too}.

She refers to a 1-hour craft show on QVC coming 03-05-14. So maybe not “QVC Scrapbooking” per se, but at least a crafting show and a step in the right direction – woot! I know many scrapbookers like me have missed the “good ol’ days” of QVC Scrapbooking, when we would call in sick to work . . . erm, take a planned vacation day . . . so we could sit glued in front of the TV and see all the fabulous ideas and products.

Some years ago, QVC quit doing scrapbooking shows (which we couldn’t understand, because most of the items would sell out). Then HSN ramped up their scrapbooking and LISA BEARNSON was eventually added as an HSN Scrapbooking hostess, which I was very happy about because I LURVE her. I was on a scrapbooking cruise with her back in the day and, let me tell you, she’s one of THE nicest and most genuine people you will ever meet.

So I really do hope that scrapbooking is coming back to QVC. The QVC PROGRAM GUIDE only goes through March 2 at this point so I can’t confirm the March 5 thing.

On top of THAT good news,

On 02-12-14, HSN Scrapbooking will be featuring the new Cricut Explore. In fact, according to someone on the DT for Anna Griffin, “Anna Griffin is launching the new Cricut Explore and some free fun party images from Anna come with it.” HERE is the announcement on Anna’s site. She has a series of Cricut Explore sneak peeks on HER BLOG if you’re intrigued.

According to the HSN PROGRAM GUIDE, all of the Papercrafting shows on 02/12 will feature the Cricut Explore. Since I was recently given an amazing SILHOUETTE CAMEO, I have no interest in buying one but will check out at least one episode to learn about it.

On 03-24-14, Lisa Bearnson will be introducing two new PROJECT LIFE kits on HSN and other new things.

This is from LISA’S BLOG recently, where she also discussed what a bust her last appearance was on HSN:

Thanks for all your comments about my last HSN show! Hopefully you didn’t miss out on the amazing savings on Project Life items. I got a note from the buying team yesterday that said you all know a good deal when you see one! Almost every Project Life product has sold out but these four items (as of yesterday)! I so hope you were able to get one of the Cinnamon Project Life kits!

So sorry about the 5-7 p.m. hours. HSN had to make a last minute switch (it had nothing to do with crafting products) and I tried to be cheerful about the change! Yes it’s true that some of my items were sold out, but there were many that I was so excited to showcase. It really was beyond any of our control.

Stay tuned for March 24th–the next big craft day. I have tons of new, new, new including a two new Project Life kits! Please be assured that HSN is still very dedicated to the crafting market.

I’m glad to hear HSN isn’t abandoning us scrapbookers! After the canceled and moved shows last time, I was beginning to wonder.

Here’s to a happy weekend, with visions of TV scrapbooking shows dancing in our heads!

    Great news about QVC! I used to take the day off for the 24 hr craft day too.

    I am anxious to see the Explore. Though I have two cricuts, a cameo, and a ScanNCut. But the Explore is supposed to remedy all that I hate about the cameo and I love Anna G. So I will be there and I might pull the trigger. A girl can’t have too many tools right?

    Thanks for the updates about HSN and QVC scrapbooking products!

    I so remember the days when I watched (and also taped!) the day long craft events on QVC so I could watch them over and over and get my Lisa Bearnson fix! She explained everything so well and her samples made me want to buy everything!

    The scrapbooking industry has changed during the past few years as more people are going digital. Plus, stores like Archiver’s are closing it’s doors because people aren’t spending as much as they used do on craft products.

    I look forward to crafting for years to come . . . love your blog!
