Lisa Bearnson and HSN Layouts!


Last week my good friend, Lisa Bearnson made her return to television on the HSN channel.
She was on the network for an extended crafting day with Lisa Bearnson.

Lisa had been on QVC for 11 years but retired a couple of years ago.

I was able to do projects for Lisa when she did QVC and she asked me to help her with HSN.

I was able to make a few layouts for her to demonstrate on television.

My assignment was to make 3 layouts using a chipboard kit.

The kit was really cute and very versatile.

I loved that the chipboard had an excellent adhesive that really kept the product on the page.

Below are the layouts that I made for Lisa to show on television.

The light on the layouts has a little glare but they showed really well on the network.

Here is a recent blog post that Lisa posted today thanking everyone for their overwhelming support on her recent return to television and scrapbooking.

I love working with Lisa and I love her.  She is as down to earth as she appears on television and she genuinely cares about everyone.

I am in constant amazement of her energy and vitality.  She is an amazing person and a dear friend.  She has definitely made my life better.  One of my all time favorite songs is from the Broadway Musical named, Wicked.  The song that I love is called, “For Good,” and it reminds me of my friendship for Lisa.  I have certainly been changed for the better by knowing Lisa, just as the lyrics in the song say:

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

And because I knew you:
Because I knew you:

Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

Here are the complete lyrics from the song:

I’m limited:
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you –
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
(spoken) For both of us
(sung) Now it’s up to you:

I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you:

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you:

Because I knew you:


I have been changed for good

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for

But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share

And none of it seems to matter anymore

Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown
From orbit as it Off it’s mooring
Passes a sun, like By a wind off the
A stream that meets Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way Dropped by a
Through the wood Bird in the wood

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

And because I knew you:
Because I knew you:

Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

Thanks for Your Support!!

I’m back from Tampa, Florida and first and foremost have to say a huge THANK YOU to each of you for all your support. Your positive energy just oozed through your television screen to the HSN television cameras making me feel very loved and teary eyed.

The overwhelming response to the Project Life kit totally made Becky Higgins smile. In fact–I don’t think she’s wiped that smile off her face for three days now. It makes Becky so happy that 25,000 people will soon have her revolutionary memory- keeping system in their hands. Becky–thanks for your vision, insight and passion.

Here is a photo of the two of us with Kerri Bradford taken a few months back.

If you don’t know who Kerri Bradford is, you must go to her site to see firsthand her creativity. If you have a Silhouette Cameo or just purchased one,  you’ll be amazed at all the  images she’s created to be used on this machine.

Kerri just traveled with me to HSN and was my right arm for the entire process. She worked with me for years at QVC and I was so thankful when she said “yes” to helping me with my HSN venture. She is a wonderful women and so thankful we all benefit from her creative juices. Oh–and she’s the designer behind the Cinnamon and Turquoise editions of Project Life.

I got some many great questions from several of you and I’ll try to answer them in this post. Please ask me more if I don’t get them all answered!

Q: Where did you get all your clothes and jewelry for Monday’s show?

A: Two of my sweet friends who own amazing companies outfitted me with the majority of my clothes and all the jewelry.

The jewelry company is Jewel Kade and their jewelry is my absolute favorite. It’s very fashion forward, classic, yet full of personality and fun. Jewel Kade jewelry is only available through stylists. You can go here to find a stylist in your area.

Many of my clothes were from Loni Steven’s brand new online boutique, Ruby Bloom Boutique. I love the convenience of shopping online and the prices and size variety are unbeatable.

This is one of the dresses from her boutique that I was possibly going to wear on Monday but decided that it was too dressy for the crafting day. The dress is only $34.00 and you can wear it either tied or untied.

Doesn’t Lisa look so cute in her dress?  I loved her clothes and jewelry that she wore on HSN.

Thanks Lisa for making my life better. I love you!
