Welcome back to Scrapbook Update’s CHA Top Ten Hot Picks list!

To see all the hot picks posted so far, visit this link. At the end, after I’ve published all ten of the picks, I’ll publish a summary list for easy reference.

So here, in no particular order, is the next hot pick for CHA Summer 2013 (aka Create-n-Connect)…

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.
