Lisa Bearnson to bring Project Life to HSN

Lisa Bearnson will be returning to the world of television shopping on March 25th, when “Papercrafting with Lisa Bearnson” makes its debut on HSN at 12:01 AM EST.

Bearnson, the founder of Creating Keepsakes magazine, left QVC for personal reasons four years ago after an 11 year run as the host of that network’s “Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking” show. She’s been largely absent from the industry during that time, preferring to focus on her family instead.

Archiver’s Announces Memphis Store Closure

Archiver’s announced last week via their Facebook page that they are closing their Memphis, Tennessee, store location on March 3rd. The store was Archivers’ 41st store location and had been open since 2007.

Archiver’s currently has 44 stores in 18 states, as well as an online store, Archiver’s Annex.

The Archiver’s store in Memphis is located only a few miles away from the former location of Eclectica’s Scrapbook Garden, an extremely large scrapbook store that pre-dated Archivers’ presence in the area. Eclectica’s closed its doors just last October as well. The closure of both stores will now leave the Memphis area without a scrapbook retail store.


A Pretty Thank You!


What a pretty way to say “thank you” to someone for something special! I’ve been in love with the cardmaking-friendly supplies that Pebbles has been putting out for awhile now, and designer Corri Garza shows them off here to their full beauty.

The Pebbles paper flower from the Walnut Grove collection was gorgeous but too small to serve as the focal point of the card all by itself. However, by layering it on top of the doily, it became a beautiful large centerpiece for the card’s design!

Small touches finish off this card perfectly. The sentiment in the upper left corner is balanced by the trio of the pearls in the lower right. With the large center element in the design, that is all this card needs to be complete!

Supplies | Patterned Paper: Pebbles (Pebbles Basics Cardmaking Pad 1). Embellishments: Pebbles (Walnut Grove 3D Paper Flowers), Michaels Stores (Doily), Recollections by Michaels (Pearls). Stamp: Scrappy Moms (Mini Messages). Ink: Staz-on by Tsukineko (Jet Black), Ranger Tim Holtz Distress (Broken China).

Designer: Corri Garza

Corri began paper crafting in 2009 when she purchased a Cricut at a Black Friday sale. She started following some blogs and immediately fell in love with card making. Recently, she added a Silhouette Cameo to her craft room and she loves working with die cuts to create cards, gift boxes and altered items. Corri lives just outside San Antonio, Texas with her husband and three kids. When she’s not in her craft room, she is watching her twins playing sports. They are involved in volleyball, baseball and softball, so there is always a game to watch!  Corri also enjoys photography, especially taking nature photos. To learn more about Corri, visit her blog.
