Hello Scrapbook Expo Friends!
Are you a card maker? Do you find yourself getting inspired by cards you see on blogs, Pinterest and online forums? Wouldn’t it be nice to see some of those cards in person and to meet fellow card makers from your local area? We thought so too!
New in 2015, the Scrapbook Expo team has added the Latest & Greatest Card Swap workshop to the schedule. You may wonder how this workshop works. First of all, let me say that if you have ever attended a Scrapbook Expo crop, you have likely had the chance to meet the wonderfully friendly Dave! Well guess what … Dave is the host of the new Card Swap workshop as well. Lucky you!
Okay, I got a bit off track there. So how does the Card Swap work? Imagine you are spending a busy day at the Expo filled with shopping, cropping, and learning. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a chance to rest and have a snack while continuing to get inspired and meeting some new friends? That is what this workshop is all about. Arrive at this workshop with 16 A2 sized cards (check your local workshop listing for the themes) that you have created and spend an hour enjoying and sharing! We recommend that the cards you create are the same or similar to each other. During the workshop, you will exchange up to 15 cards and one card will be used for determining prizes. Think of the card swap as being similar to a cookie exchange. You get to exchange your cards with other card makers and chat with them about their techniques, style, etc.
You will leave the class with the cards you have received from your fellow card makers, a Stampin’ Up card kit, one of our new jute tote bags to hold all your cards, and some new friends. And, don’t forget, a few lucky people will also leave the class with a prize!
Doesn’t that sound like fun? A rest, a snack, new inspiration, new friends, and some fun time with Dave! Count me in!
Now that I have told you all about the new Latest & Greatest Card Swap workshop, I am going to give away two admission passes to a 2015 Scrapbook Expo event of your choice. Would you like to win them? Leave a comment on this blog post telling me something about yourself. How long have you been a crafter? Do you craft early in the morning, during the day, or late at night? I want to get to know you all better. Tell me something fun!
The winner is … Barb Macaskill!
