    I am so looking forward to your visit to Minnesota in July!!! I have had the best time the last two years you’ve been here. I have already emailed a bunch of scrappy friends to join me and I would LOVE to entice them with these free tickets!

  2. Laurie Erlandson says:

    I like to see any new ideas you guys have. Don’t have a specific number of times a week, just any time you have a new project or product to share.

  3. Barbara Wesley says:

    I would like to see post as often as you have them! I gain so my ideas from these posts, I can’t imagine being without!

  4. Heather Warner-Ferguson says:

    I would love getting updates every other day- I feel that when I get it once a week thee is so much goodness I spend quite a lot of time reading and following – every other day would give me the time I need to follow links and get lost and not feel like I was spending a whole day once a week 🙂 There is always something so cool to read or projects to see and tips to follow and I love attending the Expo when it comes to my area!

  5. Gloria W says:

    My life is super hectic but I challenge myself to create something everyday…even if its just a new dinner creation. I would love to get your emails everyday! Even when the idea is a technique I already know how to do, I enjoy revisiting it and using the products and tools I buried with the new goodies. I’ve never been able to attend an expo bc of scheduling issues but am determined to go this year. Appreciate the chance to win tickets. Keep up the great work!!!

  6. Misty Morgan says:

    I would love your updates and inspiration Everyday! Great creative ideas, tips and exciting new things to create. I would Love to win the Expo tickets! Thank you!

  7. Lisa Leitch says:

    I love attending the Expos when they are here in the Phoenix area!!! Once a week is good with me as I work all week and dont have a lot of time to get into them until the weekend!

  8. EllyMae says:

    I would love to see weekly ideas…. My inbox gets too full with daily emails that I don’t often get a chance to read. Would love free tickets to Expo.

  9. Vivian D. says:

    Once a week works for me. I love receiving the newsletter. I always find time to sit in a cozy spot and read it top to bottom. It is very hard for me to find free time during the week so once a week at the end of the week is perfect!

  10. Sandra McFarland says:

    Love looking at new layouts, and would love every other day if the majority rules so.

  11. Elizabeth Walden says:

    Once a week is perfect for me. I enjoy your newsletter and would love free tickets to the expo.

  12. Kathy says:

    Last year was my first time at the Scrapbook Expo in Minnesota! My daughter and I had a great time and are looking forward to attending again in July! I enjoy updates as often as you want to post them!

  13. Linda Oldenburg says:

    Sign me up for daily updates! I love Scrapbooking and paper crafting and I love seeing what others are doing and what’s new and happening in the scrap industry. I can always learn something new .

  14. Sherry Backman says:

    I love the weekly format. I work on the computer all day, every day. But I allow myself fun time on the computer over the weekend and try to spend one weekend day on my scrapbooks. These e-mails come at just the right time to keep me inspired!

  15. DAWN OPFER says:

    Updates once a week would be ideal. Enough to keep up to date, yet not add to the overcrowded inbox. Yours is one of the few emails I leave until I have time to read it. I enjoy the tips, ideas, and updated information in the current newsletters. “leave a comment on this blog post letting me know how often you will want to receive the Weekly Scrapper updates “

  16. Sue says:

    Once a week works for me. I have been to the expos before and loved it. Plan on going to the one in Schaumburg, Illinois this year.

  17. Sharon says:

    I would love daily updates! I really enjoyed my first Expo experience last year and would love to attend again…this time with free tickets so I can have more $$$ to spend on fun scrapbook items!

  18. Carolyn Carter says:

    Last year was my first Scrapbook Expo! It’s the closest I’ve ever been to one is the reason why. I guess I would love to receive info everyday.

  19. Diane Johnstone says:

    Updates once a week are just great. This keeps me updated and my inbox in better shape. I love the “tips.”

  20. irene grau says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’m fortunate that I have several expos to choose from that are relatively nearby — love that! I prefer not to get emails more than weekly so as not to feel overwhelmed. Thanks for asking!

  21. Elaine Kapalin says:

    I know daily can be overwhelming but if your willing so am I. Love to go to my first Scrapbook Expo in Akron.

  22. Diana Yost says:

    Looking forward to having you come to Santa Clara. Just yesterday was talking to 2 complete strangers who were in the scrapbook area about going to see you this coming Aug. , since I knew what they were looking for would be there. I like the weekly updates- since any more are too overwhelming.

  23. Shirl says:

    Hi, I enjoy going to Scrapbook Expo shows and finding great buys. Your weekly blog is full of great info…and tutorials.
    I would like to receive an update every other day. Thanks.

  24. Gayle Anderson says:

    I love Scrapbook Expo and would like to see weely posts. I get so much inspiration from your for my card making.
    Keep up the wonderful ideas!!!

  25. Kristina Song says:

    I can’t wait to attend again this year when you come to our state. I would like to get updates once or twice a week. I get a lot of emails so more would get cumbersome. Thanks for asking us before changing things up! I really appreciate that! Hugs, Kristina

  26. rosemarie c says:

    Weekly works fine for me. Can’t wait for August when you come to Santa Clara. See you there!

  27. Kathyanna says:

    One or two times per week would work well for me. Thanks for the opportunity to win tickets. My friends & I are making plans to attend Duluth, GA Expo in July.

  28. Sharon Hamilton says:

    I like once a week as I work a full time job and do sewing for others at night. So I just don’t have a lot of time. But I love new ideas so that I can try them when I do have time.

  29. Leanne says:

    I enjoy seeing new ideas and being updated on the latest in the scrapbook world. Can’t wait to see everyone in Northern VA in a couple weeks!

  30. rubybea says:

    Just found your website. Love to go to the Expos here in CA.. I feel like a treasure hunter, enjoying finding new ideas. Thank You!

  31. Mary Beth Hayman says:

    Each year I attend your Duluth, GA scrapbooking expo event. My goal each year is to learn a new technique. During the events I learn a scrapbooking technique. I also purchase supplies needed to experiment and practice. It is fun to incorporate a new technique to my scrapbooks. As I look back through my completed vacation pages, I can see my own growth and development. As in years past, I’m an excited to attend July’s event and learn another technique.
    I would like to receive WEEKLY up dates.

  32. Deb says:

    I would probably chose daily, as I like to keep up with my blogs, and not be a week behind…and can’t just go out to check every one, if I’m going to get anything done around here! LOL

  33. Brenda Woods says:

    I’m absolutely bustin’ that Scrapbook Expo is coming to my area in September! I’ve read about Scrapbook Expo for years and have always wanted to go. Now it’s just 2 1/2 short months until the Marlborough show! Woooo hoooo!

    As for updaes, a couple times a week or weekly works for me since I work full-time and don’t have much time at night to read e-mail.

  34. Doris says:

    Looking forward to the August show. I’d like to see your emails twice a week. Thanks!

  35. Bonnie G says:

    I prefer weekly emails because I work full time and already get a lot of emails. I think it’s great to get all the ideas in one email and would love for it to come on a Friday. That would be a nice way to get ready for some crafting fun on the weekend, if I have the time.

  36. Carol says:

    I have a friend who has never been to Scrapbook Epxo! I would love to take her as a surprise! It is an awesome day trip or weekend trip. Go Scrappers!

  37. Jodee says:

    I think 2 to 3 times a week would be ideal for me. It would give me time to work on a project before the next newsletter. Once a week is not enough and every day would be too much.

  38. Susie T says:

    I enjoy weekly, that is what I have time for. I look forward to the email..but, if I dont get to right away…I can save it and look at during the upcoming week and not get behind. For myself, any more than weekly I would get behind and start deleting…and i dont want to do that!! So looking forward to another year attending the Sacramento Expo…you guys make everything so fun!

  39. Alma-Marie Graf says:

    I think it would be great receive these tips about 4 times weekly, about 2 weeks prior to an Expo in the scheduled city, then they should run daily, because there is so much information to be shared for the attendees. Thanks for the opportunity to share my ideas to improve communications.

  40. LCJinRoslynPA says:

    Weekly works well for me – more time to savor the content on a weekend! I’d love to go to the closest Expo… never have been able to manage it – but if I win, I will be there, you can count on it!

  41. Bevyb says:

    Looking forward to attending the show in Somerset this fall.
    Weekly or every other week is my preference. Do enjoy the posts and have picked up some great ideas

  42. Sheri Skains says:

    I can’t WAIT for the Arlington show to see all of the fantastic new products. I wish I had time to read updates every day but this darn job wants me to actually WORK for money. HA! I love getting updates and once a week is just about right for me. Would love the free tickets too!

  43. Mary Bohanan says:

    I like to receive updates that are well packed with good examples and hints to help me use my many tools. These updates are great weekly.

  44. Mary Kay Ross says:

    Weekly is perfect for me. Most times they come in on Sunday afternoon when I can sit down and really enjoy looking at it. Thanks so much! I am going to the Atlanta Scrapbook Expo whether I win the two admission tickets or not. Whohoooo!

  45. Amber says:

    I love seeing all the different ideas and techniques, so I’d like to get updates every other day.

  46. SUSAN MCFEGGAN says:

    I love all the emails I get from you. So many ideas!! I have never been to the Scrapbook Expo and noticed that their is one near me . I would love to finally go to one and see what all the hype is about!

  47. Phyllis says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Look forward to seeing some of you in Texas. Only a few weeks away, woohoo.

  48. jean magarrell says:

    More is better than less. I love all the posts and will continue to enjoy all the emails you send. Mark me down for every day!!!!!! I will be attending the expo in Ontario, Ca. Even though I live in San Diego I recently broke my arm so expo here was not possible.

  49. Mary Hano says:

    My friends and I attended last October in Ontario, Ca, recently over spring break and Anaheim
    And are already planning for this October as Ontario,Ca is our favorite venue! We have so much fun shopping and crafting! This website keeps our creative juices flowing! Hope to see you all there !!!!!

  50. Debra says:

    I think the weekly update works great. It gives me time to try out new ideas before the next update arrives. I would not delete any that come more often though. heeeheee

  51. Bobbie Vessels says:

    Always look forward to happy ideas, receiving one daily would brighten my day. Keep “um Coming.

  52. Sondra says:

    I really enjoy daily e-mails, it keeps me interested to see what is new and also what I can create perhaps in one day, so this would be my choice.
    Keep up the good work, really enjoy the Expo this pass Friday in San Diego.

  53. Kathy Martin says:

    Can’t wait to attend scrapbook expo this year. And I want to bring a friend. I think weekly emails are perfect. I don’t always get the time to look daily so I end up deleting backlogs.

  54. cindy says:

    Last year was my first time going to Scrapbook Expo and I am totally hooked! Can hardly wait until you come to Atlanta in July! Once a week posting is great for me too but I will sign up for whatever you decide!

  55. Lynne says:

    I love seeing the great ideas and would relish weekly posts. I’m looking forward to the Scrapbook Expo in Atlanta in July. I go every year and always come away with fresh ideas.

  56. Debbie Kaste says:

    Love the posts but prefer weekly as time doesn’t allow me to check my e-mails as often as I’d like. Looking forward to the Schaumburg Expo too! Can’t wait!!!

  57. Jaime S says:

    Two to three times a week would be great – short updates will fit in with a busy week taking care of things at home and working full time, and will give me some great moments of inspiration throughout a busy week! Looking forward to my first Scrapbook Expo in Akron soon!

  58. Jennifer Goulart says:

    I would love to receive them everyday or at least every other day! Looking forward to the show in August in Santa Clara, CA! So many great ideas and new things in between expos!

  59. Kelly says:

    I am looking forward to attending the Expo in August in Illinois. I look forward to weekly updates.

  60. Scrappyleigh says:

    I am thrilled to receive the weekly updates and wish I had time to read them everyday! As a Mom of 3 I have a ton to catch up on and can’t wait to spend the weekend with my scrappin peeps in Atlanta, GA this summer! It’s my “ME” time I get only once a year!!!

  61. Pat Major says:

    Love your visits to GA! Looking forward to all the classes and booths where I gain so much inspiration.
    Would love to receive the updates weekly. Always time for new ideas and tips!

  62. Ina Slone says:

    I get so many emails already that once a week is about the right number for me. I love all the ideas you give us.

  63. Kippy says:

    Once a week for me please. Luv the expo in Denver in October. I can stock up on supplies and ideas for the cold winter months ahead.

  64. Jayne Bergeman says:

    Every few days with new ideas is great. I don’t always get to read them the day they are sent. Thanks for the free tickets giveaway too!

  65. Cheryl says:

    I’m good with daily or every other day emails. I love getting new ideas with scrapbooking and card making and I don’t want to miss a thing! I attend both the Pleasanton and Santa Clara Expos in Northern California. Thank you for providing the emails and Expos for me to enjoy!

  66. Drea says:

    I like it just the way it is. Once a week. You know what they say “If it’s not broke don’t fix it”. Thanks for a chance to win the Expo tickets.

  67. Michele Wilson says:

    Once a week works great for me. Gives me enough time to read without feeling like I am getting behind.

  68. Kristin T. says:

    I would love to see your new posts and find that once or twice a week is perfect for the amount of time for me. I also am so looking forward to your event in Minnesota at the end of July. I am actually planning my vacation around those dates!

  69. Andrea B says:

    I would love to receive updates from your newsletter weekly. The articles are informative and inspire me for my next project.

  70. Kim G says:

    I am so excited that you have moved the Illinois scrapbook expo to a larger facility. I have loved taking classes the last two years. I would look forward to your updates daily.

  71. janine says:

    Once a week is great. I wish I had time to see a new post daily, but alas… I am only a part time scrapper so far! Love your blog.

  72. Karen B. says:

    I love receiving your posts as they are, I look forward to finishing up the weekend with them. I think sending them more often would make them less special. Thanks for always providing such great ideas!!!!!

  73. Debbie B. says:

    I enjoy your weekly emails now. The most I would do would be twice a week. I am looking forward to going to Chantilly this year…I think it’s the first time the show has been there. Would love free tickets!

  74. Susan says:

    I had a great time last year at the classes at last years show. I’d like a once a week email please

  75. Sue Winter says:

    I would love to see your posts on a daily basis. I am excited to be attending the Scrapbook Expo in July in GA!

  76. Maria Aftias says:

    Thanks Jen for the opportunity to give you feedback. I prefer your once a week emails, much more manageable for me.

  77. Bridget H says:

    I think I would like to see your new posts once or twice a week. I just signed up for the event in Kansas City in July, really looking forward to my first Scrapbook Expo!

  78. Julie Morse says:

    I enjoy your posts of ideas 2x a week is great. I really enjoyed the San Diego expo. I didn’t get to stay as long as I usually do due to graduations, and busy schedule but looking forward to next years dates so can start planning. I like that you guys do the make and take and showcase the new products too.. Thank you. I would love to win free tickets…

  79. Rita Drew says:

    I would love to rcv as often if it means Im learning a new technique or just viewing so many great artists work…I get inspiration from every avenue thats available. I would love to attend my 1st ever Scrapbook Expo in Sacramento even though Im 4 driving hrs north. I hope I win !!!

  80. Debbie B says:

    I like weekly updates as I work during the week and don’t have much time to do my fun, crafty things unfortunately. I would love to win tickets to the Sacramento, CA expo as I just moved to the area!

  81. Phyllis Damon says:

    Love to get the “Weekly Scrapper” daily so I have more ideas & tips to play with, but then we’ld have to rename it the “Daily Scrapper”! always enjoy going to the ScrapBookExpos. every year I hit both the Anahiem & Ontario, CA shows. My daughter is finally gonna go to the Ontario show with me, just trying to talk her into taking a workshop!

  82. Diane Lynne C. says:

    I would like to receive weekly emails on the Expo as I get too many junk emails that I spend a long time putting into Spam. I look for ward to when the Expo comes to the Philadelphia area. And I thank you for the opportunity to win tickets to see it as I have never been to one.

  83. Pilar silva says:

    I’d love to see as many updates as possible! Just when I think I know it all so many news things come up…please keep them coming!

  84. Tandara Smith says:

    I would love to receive daily posts. You can never get too much of a good thing. As for the tickets, I would love to win a pair. My friend and I usually attend the show in Duluth, Georgia. Always have a wonderful time.

  85. Deborah Richards-Cabay says:

    I’m so excited for the new location for the IL Expo! It’s so close to my house I’ll be able to enjoy so much more of the event and sleep in my own bed at night!

  86. kraftyiam says:

    Howdy, and Hello, Scrapbook Expo! I look forward to all you have to say and everything you care to share. I’d love to get your newsletter everyday. When I see your email I cannot contain myself because I know it’s going to be great news! Information about our crafting world is always welcomed! Thanks for this chance to win free tickets!

  87. Amber Fritz says:

    Twice a week is great for e-mail inspiration. I cannot wait to visit Expo in Atlanta!

  88. Cindy Wilson says:

    Hi Scrapbook Expo…I get your blog and notices via email and on Facebook all the time! And thank heavens cuz it blows the cobwebs of work out of the way for a minute and sparks the creative juices…makes me want to run home and scrap a page or 2! I love it…and keep it coming! Can’t wait til you have your show in SLC, Utah again! Love those shows!

  89. Debra Hastings says:

    Thanks for posting the blog. I would like to receive updates once a week and am looking forward to attending Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA. Last year was first attended and hope to make it an annual trip. Lots of fun and great shopping!

  90. Marilulu Grant says:

    Twice a week would be good. Every day is MUCH to often, especially when many daily emails contain the same info as previously posted. I look forward to the inspirations, though, honestly don’t have time to follow up on every idea.

  91. Trudy Jensik says:

    I went to the one in Orlando florida, while on vacation…I live in Southern Illinois and the closest one is in Shamburg Illinois….if I win tickets I’ll be at that one….love all the ideas and meeting new crafting friends

  92. Carol Davis says:

    I would love daily messages, I love your site and look forward to the Shaumburg Expo in Aug. Last year was my first one and can’t wait see what you have this year…..

  93. Anita says:

    I like having them once a week, that’s fine with me because I get too many emails and I really want to enjoy the ones I really like most of all and yours is one of those.

  94. Darlene Jungman says:

    I would love daily posts! I look forward to the weekly posts but there’s so much info in them, it takes a while to read through it. Short, sweet daily posts would be great!

  95. Trudy Migneault says:

    I like weekly posts. If I was to receive them daily I would not be able to keep up and then would feel I am missing out! I live in Saskatchewan, Canada, but am so hoping to attend the Expo in Minneapolis in July. I have wanted to go for the last couple of years but have been too I’ll. this year is the year!!

  96. Marie Brishke says:

    I love the once a week emails from you! Jen, I also have a question: are you (Scrapbook Expo) giving away multiple free passes, or is there just one B-I-G giveaway? If multiple, is there a place where we can check to see if we have won? Thank you so much!!! 🙂

  97. Hollyk1226 says:

    I love all the ideas shared on the blog. A weekly update is good for me, anything more than that I just don’t have the time to look at and tend to delete because I just am not on the computer that often to read all the emails.

  98. Pam Montenegro says:

    I just got back from the San Diego Expo…what a great time we had! I took my Grandson’s wife with me and she was very impressed and loved every minute. She has a two year old and another baby on the way. She is so inspired now… already starting using newly learned techniques to begin making their Reveal Party invitations.
    Thank you for doing such a great job with the Expo’s. I love the weekly posts but would enjoy more receiving them daily. I’m retired and look forward to reading them and seeing the shared projects. Thank you

  99. Barb P. says:

    I love to see new ideas every day, but then I don’t have time to craft! Would definitely like to see weekly updates.

  100. Linda says:

    I prefer weekly updates. Then I set aside time to go through and look at the projects and see what I want to try. More than that, I find I just delete and still grab one to look at the week.

  101. Theresa Cordova says:

    I would like once a week postings. I’m looking forward to attending Scrapbook Expo in Denver, Colorado. Saving my money for all kind of goodies!

  102. Linda Brady says:

    I would love to receive update EVERY DAY! I am so looking forward to going to the Chantilly, VA Expo next week. I have two scrapping friends who couldn’t both go on the same day. So guess what, I get to go both days! YAY! Love the blog and the emails I get from you will all the lovely ideas!

    • Linda Brady says:

      oops! the above should have been “updates” EVERY DAY and the emails I get from you “with” all the lovely ideas? I am so excited about going to the show, I typed too fast!

  103. Lynn E says:

    every other day would be good, or even once or twice/week. I don’t read everything everyday anyway! Looking forward to Chantilly next weekend!

  104. Phyllis Meadows-Rose says:

    I love your blog..would like to see updates every day …even when I don’t have time to look at them right away I save for when I do. Thanks for the opportunity to win…I’m ready for Tulsa!

  105. Colleen says:

    I look forward to every update you send! I had Akron on My calendar, but my husband passed away suddenly on April 11, and I’m not quite ready to travel. Chicago is in my sights now, and it will be such a welcome blessing. Thanx!

  106. Althea says:

    I would love to receive updates everyday!!! I’m so excited and motivated to do something everyday! Thanks.

  107. Linda says:

    I attended my first Scrapbook Expo in San Diego on May 29th. It happened I was in CA visiting my children and family. I learned about the Expo from the Stamps of Life website. I found several companies I hadn’t been aware of before and met so many nice people. I am so looking forward to the Expo coming to Kansas City in July and visiting some of the vendors I didn’t get to meet in San Diego.Thank you for your blog and great inspirations. I would appreciate getting updates once a week.

  108. Jan Ingraham says:

    I look forward to your weekly blog posts. If you find you have more info to post I wouldn’t want to miss anything. If you have to stretch to post once a week then I’ll be happy to see what you send weekly. Thank you.

  109. Tara Mayol says:

    I would love to receive about 3 emails a week! One weekly email is not enough for all the wonderful inspiration you bring to us but daily is too much. Will be attending my first Scrapbook Expo event in July at Duluth, Georgia. I am so excited!

  110. Lori Edwards says:

    I would like a lot to win the birthday boy paper set, not only to make many fabulous
    Pages, but also 3D style cards for someone special on their birthday, and gift tag ideas as well!!!! I hope I win, this would be a first for me!!!!!

  111. Janet says:

    We are scrapping the weekend it comes here to Sacramento so we are going to all stop and run down to the Expo and shop till we drop and run back and scrapbook till the wee hours of the night……fun fun fun!!
