Freebie Friday – Stamp & Scrapbook Expo Giveaway

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday! With one Stamp & Scrapbook Expos event completed and nineteen left to go in the 2017 show season, I thought it would be fun to give away a pair of admission tickets!

Before we get to the giveaway, you probably know that the EXPOs include shopping, workshops, and crops. Did you know every Stamp & Scrapbook Expo event also has its own Facebook Group? Not only will you get information about the show, but you can also meet new friends and find out who is going and how they are getting there.

  • Need another person for a full crop table? Post a note about it on the group.
  • Want to meet some fellow papercrafters in person before you head to the show, consider arranging a meetup from within the group.
  • Chat about favorite workshops, what to bring, etc.
  • Many of our exhibitors post information about sales or other products in their booths too.
  • We also offer exclusive giveaways only on the local Facebook Groups!

Join_Local_Facebook_Group_FB

The Facebook groups are active all year long. There are lots of people who met someone in the group last year, attended the show together and have stayed in touch all year. Take advantage of the groups to find other local crafters, activities, and more. For example: Do you know of a great deal on a crafting product nearby? Did you create a project you would like to share? Have you learned a new technique? Chat with people who share your interests AND are local! These groups offer the best of both worlds!

The groups are also a great place to share photos and memories from your time at the EXPOs, and the EXPO team (hehe … especially me) love to see you having fun! I love to see all the fun the guests are having at the EXPOs. I hope you will all continue (or start) to share your photos to the group and using the hashtags #SSBECrop and #SSBE2017 so that I can live vicariously through you all from my home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This week, the fabulous Stamp & Scrapbook Expo team is giving away a pair of admission tickets to the show floor! Imagine yourself walking amongst aisles and aisles of the coolest scrapbooking and stamping products around. Yay! Leave a comment on this blog post before March 30th at midnight for a chance to win.  Good luck!

Don’t forget that even when you are not attending a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, you can always join us online.

Last week’s Freebie Friday post was sponsored by Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. Thank you to everyone who commented on last week’s blog post! The giveaway was for a subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine.

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Hello, Stamp & Scrapbook Expo Friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend. Will you be creating this weekend? Will you be sitting back and reading a good book? I hope to do a little bit of both. This weekend is a long weekend in Ontario as Monday is Family Day. My kids are older so they will likely be hanging out with their friends for most of the day but we will hang out as a family for part of the day as well!

We are halfway through February, and National Stamp & Scrapbook Month. We are doing lots of giveaways in the Facebook groups, and thousands of people have entered the giveaway to win a Dream Weekend at a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo. I hope you have gone to the local sponsor stores to shop, to show them some love, and also to receive a 10% discount on your order. Read all the details of this fun month here and enter to win!

What a wonderful week this has been! Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and manufacturer blogs have all been filled with photos of LOTS of amazing new products. I love this time of year! There are so many great new products to add to my wish list in hopes of buying over the next six months as they are released.

A few of you have asked about where to find the winners from the Freebie Friday giveaways. Every Friday, I post a giveaway with prizes from either Stamp & Scrapbook EXPO or our wonderful partners. Unless otherwise stated, the winners of the giveaways are announced in the blog post the following week. The winner is then asked to email me at jen@scrapbookexpo.com so that I can arrange to have the prize shipped out.

The EXPO team is working hard behind the scenes to get everything ready for a fabulous 2017 show season. Have you decided which show or shows you will be attending? Once you have chosen the EXPO you want to attend, be sure to visit the website for all the show details including registration dates, the pre-show guide, the workshop guide and so much more!

With the first show of 2017 a little more than a month away, I feel the need to give away another pair of admission tickets to a 2017 Stamp & Scrapbook Expo. Can you tell I want you all to attend a show in 2017?

Free-Admission-Card-Contest

To be entered into this giveaway, I need you to help me. I am curious when you attend an event such as the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo whether or not you post photos to social media. If you do, do you post photos and selfies to Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest, Twitter or somewhere else? I would love to know where you share the photos you take. If you don’t share photos, let me know that as well. Thanks and good luck!

Last week’s giveaway was for an apron and two admission passes to the show floor. The winner is Kristina LeCloux. Congratulations Kristina!
