Freebie Friday – National Scrapbook Day Edition

Hello Scrapbook Expo friends! This week we have a very special edition of Freebie Friday for you!  Saturday, May 2nd is {inter}National Scrapbook Day so we are giving away a special two part prize that we are sure you are going to LOVE. There may be another something special later in the blog post so be sure to read until the very end.

Are you ready? Let’s get started. The first part of the prize we are offering is a Mystery Box from the Scrapbook Expo team. For those of you who have attended a crop at one of our events, you already know Dave. We are going to get Dave to pack a very special box full of product just for you. It will contain papers, embellishments and maybe even a tool. When you open this prize, it is going to feel like it is Christmas, or your birthday, how about your favourite birthday. Sound good?



The next part of the prize is one that will help you and a friend to have a fabulous day. You will spend the day surrounded by fellow scrapbookers and cardmakers as you walk the show floor at the Scrapbook Expo. With vendors as far as the eye can see, you will feel like a kid walking in a candy shop. This prize consists of two admission passes to the 2015 Scrapbook Expo event of your choice.

Admission Tickets


To enter to win the Mystery Box packed by the fabulous Dave and two admission passes to the 2015 Scrapbook Expo event of your choice, leave a comment on this blog post. The giveaway runs until 6pm EST on Thursday, May 7th.

The second giveaway we are hosting is for the Scrapbook Expo event in San Diego. One lucky winner will receive a hotel and crop package. This package includes a one night stay at the Town & Country Resort in San Diego as well as 2 crop tickets and 2 bonus kits. Wowsers! That is the kind of prize I would love to win!

Enter below for a chance to win the hotel and crop package.
