HSN Scrapbooking

Project Life: “My Story” PL Kit from HSN

As I posted about HERE, I ordered the Project Life “My Story” kit from HSN on their last scrapbooking day. It finally arrived last week!

Here’s the cover to the album . . . obvi! I really like the shades of green and the clean design. I think it will be timeless and not look dated when I’m old and gray :)

This is the front and back of the package insert so you can see a bit more of what the pages look like.

Here’s the opening page and you can see all the tab dividers along the right side.

DSCN5872


This is a closer look at the tabs. Can you see how some of them are already crumpled? The cardstock that the pages and dividers are made from are the same weight (instead of the dividers being of a heavier weight) which is like a heavy cardstock but certainly not a chipboard, not even a thin one. You never know, heavier cardstock could’ve made the book so thick and heavy, it wasn’t useable so I’m fine with this. I’ll probably find a way to reinforce or replace the tab dividers. I do love all the topics it comes with and how the album flows so well.

These are samples of two of the page spreads.

And, finally, the closing page about your will and final wishes. In other words, “You can go to sleep. You are dead now, Scrappy.” You can also see the {10} divided page protectors that came with this album kit from HSN.

Overall, I’m very happy with the Project Life “My Story” kit. The price from HSN was cheaper than buying all the items separately so it was priced well. The colors and theme of the album are very clean, user friendly, and won’t distract from all the handwriting to be included. They are simple and should be fun to embellish a bit. I’m thinking “WASHI!” How about you?

The most impressive thing about this album is the huge array of topics covered and questions asked. When completed, it really will be your life story from start to finish. There may be pages here and there that don’t apply to everyone – for instance, I’m putting aside the page about ‘my grandchildren’ since I don’t have any yet – but for the most part, very useable and universal.

Becky Higgins does it again. I can’t wait to get started.

Project Life: “My Story” Kit from HSN Has Shipped!

During the last HSN Scrapbooking day, the only thing I ended up ordering was the Project Life “My Story” album kit:

It was about $30 with shipping and here is what’s in the kit:

Project Life My Story Kit with Album and Photo Sleeves
What’s your story? Document anything and everything in this My Story kit from Project Life. Filled with prompts to help you remember various important milestones and times in your life, this album is the perfect gift for just about anyone. Your legacy. Your story. Your life.

What You Get

6″ x 8″ Album
61 Pages of prompts to record your life story
12 Photo pocket pages
11 Dividers



Since then, I’ve seen that you can get JUST the pages on Becky’s site for $14.99:

You don’t get the album or the page protectors like with the HSN kit but you can order those separately on BH.com. I guess it was a good deal on HSN. Via BH.com, you’d pay $15 kit + $5 page protectors + $15 album = $35 (vs. the $25 I paid on HSN).

I didn’t know when I ordered the Project Life “My Story” kit from HSN.com that there would be such a delay before it shipped! It’s been over 3 week since I ordered it. I feel kind of misled about that because they sure didn’t make it clear in the presentation – like, “Hey, order now but be aware that these kits haven’t arrived at HSN yet so there will be a delay in shipping them.”

I still probably would’ve placed the order – but I’d like to have the choice, ya know? On the one hand, I’ve had a problem with the quality of one of the PL 6×8 albums; the metal spine came loose on one end and I don’t think it’s fixable. Also, I already have some Sn@p 6×8 albums and page protectors that I could probably use with this kit. On the other hand, I like that the album is specific to this project, with the “My Story” title and I like the design and colors.

Anyway, I’ll let you know when it arrives and I’ll post some photos. I’m very excited to get this kit and get started! It’ll probably take me forever to complete, LOL. But my goal is work on it during the winter and holidays when work slows down a bit, if we travel and I have “car time”, and during some cold winter days when I’m stuck inside :)

I think it’ll mainly be handwritten journaling and probably some research on dates and such. I’m lucky my mom is still around to help me :) I’m not sure about including photos in it – if I do, I’ll probably use copies, maybe even keep them all black and white so there’s a cohesive look to it and then I can embellish things a bit.

We’ll see when it gets here! Did you order this album? If you’ve received it already, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Anna will also be offering her usual Christmas card kit which she talks about HERE. I’ve heard very good things about her past Christmas card kits – that they’re easy to put together but impressive, and you get a lot of completed cards from them.

I also see that LISA BEARNSON will be presenting . . . NEW PROJECT LIFE on the HSN Craft Day!! Okay, now I’ll be there fo’ sho! {Click on that linkee to enter a giveaway and to see a bunch of photos of the new PL kits}.

LOVE NOTES kit by Project Life

LUCKY CHARM kit by Project Life

NOTES & THINGS kit by Project Life

CHRISTMAS WISH kit by Project Life

Oh em gee! You *have* to go to Lisa’s blog and see all the photos of these kits. You’ll fall in love like I have! I’m getting “Love Notes” and “Christmas Wish” for sure. The other two are awesome but I’m more of a silver girl than gold. That’s why I’m so happy to see the Christmas kit – all that silver – swoon! {There’s been SO much gold in scrapbooking lately and I’ve felt left out, LOL!}

Pssst! There’s another must-have Project Life kit teased on Lisa’s blog. Go check it out – and she even tells you the exact time she’ll debut it. AND . . . possibly 2 other new kits, if they arrive at HSN in time. That’s about as “brand new” as it gets. I’ll be watching and the suspense is killing me :)

Speaking of which, here are Lisa’s expected times but they’ve changed last minute before so I suggest you just DVR the whole dang thing, just in case ;)

So, are you excited about any of the scrapbooking items coming up on HSN next week?

HSN Scrapbooking, Project Life Deal, and Shopping Reminder



Just 3 quick things for ya':

1. HSN.com will have some scrapbooking shows on starting either tonight or tomorrow, depending upon your time zone. I’m in PST and the first show is 09-01-14 at 11pm. HERE is the program guide.

2. If you like to stock up on the Big Pack of Design A (60 Pages) for Project Life or pocket page scrapping, there is a killer deal on them right now. I last paid $30 for these but as of now they’re only $8.36 and free shipping with Prime. Hurry, Amazon changes their prices with no notice!

3. A last reminder to check out the Labor Day Weekend scrapbook shopping deals I posted HERE. There’s still time to shop!

Lil’ Update from Scrapbook Obsession Ville aka Crazy Town

.

Just wanted to say “hiya” and check in. Life has been too busy to blog. Wah. Boo! Hate it.

As Mary reminded me in Comments, I have yet to post the second Arizona LSS review. Gotta’ get on that.

I also said I’d post about the stamp contro at Two Peas. Boy, do I have a lot to say ’bout that!

And there are so many other things I wanna’ write about.

But in the last 2 weeks, my workload has literally doubled. My car has literally died. And I literally have sciatica and a head cold.

So please forgive meeeeeee!

To make you smile, HERE is where Lisa Bearnson posted about her upcoming HSN Scrapbook shows in May 2014. Does that help you not be mad at me? Hope so!

And I hope all is well in your world, my loves <3

Talk soon.

HSN Scrapbooking 03-24-14

Well, unbeknownst to me, it’s National Craft Month on HSN. They failed to include me on the memo :D

And apparently it’s also National Wicked Cool Manicure Month!

Starting at midnight on Monday 03-24-14 (or 9pm Sunday night for those of us in the PST), HSN will be airing crafting and scrapbooking shows by (among others) ANNA GRIFFIN, MARTHA STEWART, and my personal favorite, LISA BEARNSON – check out the (4) new PROJECT LIFE kits for HSN she is debuting!

Project Life “HAPPY”

Project Life “AZURE”

Project Life “DAYDREAMER” by DEAR LIZZY

Project Life “STYLE BOARD” by MAGGIE HOLMES

You MUST click over the Lisa B’s BLOG and see tons more photos. Well, I mean, click over there if you’re ready to buy something because you’ll want to after seeing all her great pics. Word.

Luckily for me, I’m broke. Ha! If I wasn’t, I’d be getting the “Daydreamer” and “Style Board” kits. OMBRE & WATERCOLOR & BOKEH, oh my!

Did you know you don’t have to wait for the shows to air to buy these kits? You can get them on HSN.com now {if they’re not already sold out}. I usually find things that are about to air in the crafting NEW ARRIVALS section.

The only problem is if we buy them all up before the show, Lisa won’t have anything to demo again, LOL. {Yes, that happened in the past}. Then again, things selling out before they even air shows HSN and other companies {I’m lookin’ at you, QVC!} that we scrappers are serious shoppers when you bring us new stuff at a decent price. Am I right?

To see when and what shows are airing, check out the HSN PROGRAM GUIDE and change the drop down menu to your time zone. Then set that DVR and get to recording! Or if you’re lucky and don’t have to be anywhere else, grab a bowl of popcorn, some coffee, and get to watchin’!!

And if you’re stuck at work on Monday – okay, do NOT tell your boss I told you this – but you can watch HSN live online RIGHT HERE. Just sayin’ . . .

Will you be watching HSN Crafting this time around? Do you think you’ll buy anything? What’s your favorite item?

ETA 03-23-14: Someone mentioned on Two Peas that Amazon had some of these kits without the extra stuff, if you don’t want that. I went to check and found that (as of this second) AZURE, DAYDREAMER, and STYLE BOARD are listed for good prices but sold out. I can’t find “Happy” on Amazon; someone mentioned it was maybe an exclusive to Australia?

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

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!

Project Life: 4×6 Photo Overlays Are Here!

As I mentioned HERE, I was very excited to order these new photo overlays made by Becky Higgins for PROJECT LIFE from HSN.com.

Well, apparently I was not alone. They were an HSN exclusive item, posted to their site on Wednesday, I bought them immediately when I saw them that day, and they were sold out by Friday before the HSN Scrapbooking shows even aired on Monday night/Tuesday morning (depending on your time zone).

Mine arrived on Tuesday – fast shipping! You go, HSN. Word to ya’ mutha’.

According to Becky herself on Facebook:

For those of you who were lucky enough to score the Project Life Overlays from HSN, here’s a TIP that you’ll want to know: Be sure to peel off the protective film before using the overlays! Once you do, the clarity will blow your mind. I know a lot of you are bummed they sold out so fast (I agree that more should have been ordered). I will be able to give you an update soon about our plans to hopefully bring these back!

From the image on HSN.com, it was hard to tell exactly what you get with this kit . . .

. . . so I wanted to post some quick photos of all 60 overlays. Sorry, not the best quality pics with my iPhone first thing in the morning but here ya’ go. You can at least get an idea what the sayings are and such.

Well first, here’s the packaging. I took this in the car right when I picked them up from the post office, hee hee. The Scrapbook Obsessed will understand that I couldn’t even wait until I got home to open them up, right?

IMG_2634

Here are the first 2 sets on some kraft cardstock:

IMG_2641

IMG_2643

Here are the next 2 sets on a blue/green color. I wanted to show them on different colors/shades so you can see how they look:

IMG_2644

IMG_2645

Here’s the last set on charcoal grey Bazzill bling. Ooooh, my arms look so skinny! These overlays are good for my self-esteem.

IMG_2646

Here are 2 overlays on photos.

IMG_2647

{We got to see a Dodgers/Red Sox game a few weeks ago. DODGERS: They clinch the NL West title WHEN they beat Arizona tonight, hee-yah! Oh wait, this is a scrapbooking blog . . . erm . . . so I’m pocket page scrapping the game using my Project Life “Honey” kit – 22 pages, LOL. Might be a wee bit baseball obsessed, too}.

These photos are true 4×6, printed on my Epson Picturemate. As you can see, the overlays cover to all the edges. Look at the top right corner of the top photo. They do have rounded corners – not sure how I’m going to handle that.

Here’s the whole healthy stack – 60 is a lot! But there are only a few duplicates that I noticed, of plain frames.

IMG_2648

I figure if I used approximately 1 per week in my Project Life, I’ll go through them nicely and won’t get tired of seeing them either :)

I hope Becky is able to restock these awesome overlays and that you’re able to get a hold of them!

HSN Scrapbooking 06-19 and 06-20-13

“Summer Scrapbooking Spectacular” and “Martha Stewart Crafts” are on at various times over the 2 days. Looks like I already missed 2 hours (my DVR failed me again!) but the next one starts in half an hour.

Oh well, I don’t think these scrapbooking are shows with Lisa Bearnson so I’m not as sad to have missed them.

HERE is the HSN program guide. Change it to reflect your time zone :)

Please let me know what items you like and/or what you buy!

HSN Scrapbooking including “Papercrafting with Lisa Bearnson”

Sorry for the late notice – it’s on NOW!! My DVR didn’t pick it up for some reason but I just happened to turn on the TV and there was Lisa :)

Click HERE for the HSN program guide to see the airings for your time zone.

Click HERE for Lisa Bearnson’s blog and scroll through recent entries to see all the cool items she’s going to feature.

Please come back and let me know if you bought anything! I’m thinking about getting THIS item.

HSN Scrapbooking: Lisa Bearnson Returns to TV with Project Life and More

Back in the day, LISA BEARNSON used to host scrapbooking shows on QVC. They were THE THING to watch. Scrappers would call in sick to work or gather and crop during these shows. They were such an event, lol. Well, Lisa left QVC some time ago as did scrapbooking as a whole.

Then HSN picked up the crafts/scrapbooking baton with a variety of hosts. While I’m grateful that at least someone has kept on with the scrapbooking shows, HSN has never held a candle to QVC’s old shows. That’s why I was so very excited to hear that Lisa Bearnson is coming to HSN! Not only that, she’ll be debuting Project Life there. As a Project Lifer myself, that was icing on the scrapbooky cake.

If you don’t want to know ahead of time many of the items she’ll be showing on HSN, don’t look below … SPOILERS!!

But first I’ll share the schedule so you can set your DVR – it’s basically Monday, 03-25-13 from midnight to midnight EST. HERE is the program guide at HSN.com. You can adjust it to show your time zone if you like.

These are the times Lisa says she will appear (all EST):

And a card kit:

Project Life Blush and Jade kits:

Favorite File of Rub-Ons:

Across the Board border kit:

Life’s Little Moments chipboard kit:

I don’t know about you but I’m excited! DVR is set baby! First of all, I love Lisa. I was blessed to spend some time with her on a scrapbook cruise and she was amazing. Loved her and David Venable on QVC all those years (and thought the dust-up about ‘the slap’ was kind of silly, imho). Anyway, just happy to see something new and exciting coming to HSN for once. If I have to see the WRMK punches demo’d one more time I’m going to scream.

Reminder: If you’re PST like me, we actually get the first show at 9pm Sunday night :) I need to catch up on my Project Life. I think I’m going to set it up on the coffee table and have a little Scrap Party for One from 9pm to midnight, LOL.

I have my DVR set and ready to record! How about you? Do you watch the HSN scrapbooking shows? And speaking of NSD, are you doing anything to celebrate this year? There’s a local crop but my mom is here visiting so we’re going to just take over the dining room table and scrap this weekend whenever we’re not busy with other fun stuff and enjoying our Mother’s Day Weekend.

Btw, President Obama STILL hasn’t answered my (many, annoying, begging, pleading, stalkerish, fully outlined, and factually supported) letters asking him to make National Scrapbook Day a Federal Holiday. Yeah, I want the banks and post offices closed, the whole schlemeel.

I’m so baffled as to why he won’t enact this no-brainer of a law. And, NO, I *have NOT* been sniffing my Glossy Accents … (sniff) again. Srsly. (sniff) I haven’t!

kbai

HSN Scrapbooking 12/22/08

Just a heads up…set your Tivo! There are only 2 shows but the word “clearance” is mentioned. Ah, not a more beautiful word in the English language…

If you were wondering about upcoming QVC Scrapbooking shows, I did a search on my satellite guide and got no results. Gah! As I recall, they weren’t going to have any more scrapbooking shows in 2008. If anyone has more info, please let me know :)

HSN Scrapbooking Takes A Step Up

I recorded two ‘shows’ today of HSN Scrapbooking and was in no hurry to watch them, as lately they’ve been kind of a bust. It’s been anything from sewing machines to Paperazzi, neither of which are on my shopping list. But after everyone settled in bed tonight, I sat down and watched the first hour and was impressed and surprised. They said all the items were new to HSN, although I had seen one of them before (btw, how can they lie like that? isn’t it false advertising of some kind?). But there were actually some rockin’ items. There were a few things by American Crafts including a paper and embellishment kit, and 2 choices of Slick Writers sets (glitter and metallic), but my favorite from AC was a Thickers set. For about $24 including shipping, you get 8 packages of chipboard Thickers, 4 alphas and 4 matching shape stickers. They were in basic colors like black, white, metallic gold and metallic silver. Around here, the Thickers alphas sell for $4 each and the shapes for $5, so the HSN deal is clearly a good one. HSN also offered the Pebbles Inc. Share and Tell system, and tons of Fancy Pants stuff…acrylic shapes and acrylic stamps. I haven’t watched the second hour yet, but I zipped through the preview at the beginning and it looked like many of the same items were re-run, plus some additional things by Fancy Pants. Again, just a pleasant surprise from HSN tonight and I thought you’d want to know, so you can add HSN Scrapbooking back into your Must See TV line-up.

I also watched Big Brother 10 and, wow, I feel so sorry for Ollie (or Ali, as Michelle calls him, LOL). I guess he was kind of silly to trust Dan completely…he should have been working some other angles in case Dan let him down. Then again, I can’t believe Dan swore on his girlfriend, his family, and the Catholic school he coaches at…and then went back on his word. That’s harsh, dude….

Well, I’m all packed for my last crop. Not that many people signed up (due to Labor Day Weekend?), so it’s not good financially because I have to pay a lot to rent the room {I’m going to see if I can sweet talk the manager, Vic, into lowering the price since my attendance is low…wish me luck}. But it will mean more scrapping time for me and I’m really looking forward to working on my School Days albums for the online class I’m taking. Hope you all have a lovely 3-day weekend and I’ll blog ya’ later…
