Freebie Friday – Scrapbook Expo Merchandise

SBE Tote Bag

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday, Scrapbook Expo friends!

As a member of the Scrapbook Expo team, I will be attending the show in Schaumburg, IL next weekend. While I am there I will be taking lots of photos and short video clips so I can share a bit more of my Expo experience with you. I am very excited to be able to attend the show, as I actually live in Canada so I don’t have a regular chance to go to the shows. My distance from the Expos gave me an idea. When I was planning out the giveaway for this week, I wanted to bring a little bit of the Expo to someone who may not regularly get a chance to attend a show in person.

This week we are giving away Scrapbook Expo merchandise including a Scrapbook Expo Junkie t-shirt, a tote bag and a 2015 Scrapbook Expo keepsake button. Hooray!

    Congratulations to last week’s winner!! So lucky!! Enjoy the amazing collection from G45!!
    I am one of those who wouldn’t be able to attend and Expo and would love to be able to show off my love for you guys by carrying that awesome bag to go grocery shopping and it would also become my 1100′ walk to the mailbox bag! I have three things that go with me everyday on my trip, my sunglasses, O2 bottle and cart and my bag that I carry my mail home in! This bag would be perfect for that and I am going to keep my fingers crossed real tight!!! Thanks for the chance to show off some new duds too!

  8. snazzy jj says:

    Congrats to Kathy. And, oh boy am I an expo junkie – first one there and last to leave. It was so fun having you guys here in Minnesota last month and ringing the gong again.

  9. Priscilla Naegeli says:

    Scrapbook Expo is so Amazing! I love the innovative workshops, talented teachers, $hopping with the exclusive list of exhibitors and following exhibitors on their own blogs for product information and knowledge, and of course the experience of meeting like minded people in a place where only we would appreciate the array of adhesives one can purchase without judgment.

    I was waiting for my husband to pull the car around the front of the Grapevine, TX Scrapbook EXPO and while waiting, three other women and myself were waiting for our rides and we shared our proud purchases and showcased them a la Vanna White style to each other without judgment and also talked about the techniques that we learned from our workshops.

    I always have withdrawals when the expo comes to an end but I look forward to the next year. Any chance that the Scrapbook EXPO would trickle its way to either San Antonio, San Marcos or Austin?

  10. Claire Powers says:

    I went to the Expo in Duluth GA last month but didn’t get around to buying my tote and tee. I would love to win one! Thanks for the opportunity. 🙂

  11. marylouh says:

    I love to wear t-shirts with scrapping sentiments. this looks like a great prize.
    Here’s hoping.

  12. Deb C says:

    I am so excited about the upcoming Expo in Schaumburg. I have attended this event for the past 4 years, and thrilled that it is so much closer to me than St. Charles was. It’s great to get some new products and great deals. I would love to have to have the scrapbook junkie T-shirt.

  13. Shanna` says:

    I will be at the Expo on Saturday. Was actually looking at the bag on the expo website. Would be great to win!

  14. Tracy P. says:

    Can’t wait for Expo in Somerset, NJ next month…would love to be sporting this cool shirt when I get there. Thanks for the chance to win!
    PS: Congrats Kathy!

  15. Renee L says:

    Would love to win the Scrapbook Expo goodies so I can wear them and show them off!!! Can’t wait for the Expo on Friday!! 🙂

  16. Sandi B says:

    I would love to win this package from Scrapbook Expo. I will be attending the expo in Schaumburg next weekend (can’t wait) and I am so excited. I got to attend two last year and loved both of them. I was on vacation in southern CA and was able to drive down to San Diego for the expo. Then I found that there was going to be one in St. Charles , ILL last summer. Long drive, but I made it to that one. I recommend if anyone has the opportunity to try and go. The vendors and their products are amazing. There was so much to see and do that I barely got through all of it that day. A friend of ours just moved up to the Chicago suburbs and she has invited us to drive up Friday night and stay with her. Less than a week to go.

  17. Mari G. says:

    My friends and I go to all the Scrapbook Expo’s in Ontario, Anaheim, and San Diego. I would love to show up wearing one of your t-shirts or carring your tote bag. We always have a great time and load up on supplies.

  18. Ilona Watts says:

    I would love to win the Scrapbook Expo merchandise. I actually drive to CA to attend an Expo. I sign up for classes, crops, and love to shop for things I can’t buy in NV. I didn’t know that the Expo sold their own merchandise, or I would have bought the T-Shirt for sure! I love going to the Expo and having the time to scrap and learn!

  19. Lynn A Hanson says:

    I just discovered the Scrapbook Expo in Sacramento last year. What a trip! Had no idea you all were sooooo crazy-fun! Can’t wait for the next one this fall.

  20. Sharyn Childs says:

    My friends and family already call me an “Scrapbook Expo Junkie”. Winning this package would just let them (and anyone else) know I am PROUD to be called that. 🙂 I have been attending the Expo in Duluth since I’ve moved to Georgia. I think I’ve convinced my sister in NJ and my nieces in MD that next year we need to have a Scrapbook Weekend when it comes to Duluth. I can hardly wait until next year!!!!! Hope I’m lucky enough to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

  21. Mar-Sue Ratzke says:

    Congrats to Katy for winning last week. A couple of years ago, we moved to the northern coast of Washington from Orange County, CA which has made it more difficult for me to attend a Scrapbook Expo. Before our move, I had been to several Scrapbook Expos in Orange County, San Diego, and Ontario, CA. I have some older ‘Expo shirts that are practically worn out. A new one would be super!

  22. Dianna Ping says:

    I will be in Schaumburg for my 5th Scrapbook Expo this year!! (Grapevine, Orlando, Chantilly, Duluth so far) I would love the shirt to go with my lanyard and buttons! And people will really know who is a Scrapbook Expo junkie!

  23. Barbie D. says:

    I’m so looking forward to the Expo in Sacramento this October. I would love to be able to wear the tee and carry the amazing bag. Thank you for a chance to win.

  24. Connie says:

    I heading up there to attend on Friday! Would be great to win ! I love the scrapbook expo shows 🙂

  25. Susie A says:

    I am so excited about attending this year’s Scrapbook Expo–in fact, I’ve waited an entire year! 🙂 I’ve been lucky enough to make it to the St Charles location twice before and look forward to seeing the new location in Schaumburg. I have no doubt it will be bigger and better than ever! This Freebie Friday giveaway is an excellent homage to an excellent Scrapbooker’s Candy Store! Thank you for coming up with this brilliant idea.

  26. Sandy Abbott says:

    I love anything todo with Scrapbook Expo and only regret that I have been unable to attend any of the conventions, but I’m always hopeful for next year!

  27. Dee Whately says:

    Love the Expo pack!! We all can’t win so please start selling them! You’ll make a fortune!

  28. Norine says:

    Love scrapbooking – relaxing and creative! Attended a Scrapbook Expo last year and really enjoyed it. Disappointed that it did not come to Oaks , PA this year.

  29. Natalie G. says:

    Love the tote and T-shirt. Looking forward to going to the Sacramento event. Thank you for all the tips too!

  31. Nancy says:

    It would be so fun to win these items! I would definitely wear the t-shirt and carry the tote to my Scrapbook Expo here in Denver in October! There are fewer scrapbook supply stores in Denver than there used to be, so Scrapbook Expo is the most fabulous place to go for all the newest supplies and ideas! Can’t wait!

  32. Beth Bergner says:

    Great t-shirts!! That’s me! A scrapbook Expo Junkie……I go to everyone that is in California….

  33. Judy Hawk Estrada says:

  35. Billie Thoeming says:

    What great giveaways. I missed the expo here in Orlando because I had some stomach surgery during that month. I think all your tips and techniques are great. I like to go to the expos to learn, see new products, and meet other papercrafters.

  36. Sue says:

    What a GREAT prize to win. Would love to be able to wear the fantastic shirt at Expo in Schaumburg. Looking so forward to going. Will also try to attend Denver Scrapbook Expo so the shirt will definitely get a good work out!!! Love Scrapbook Expo. Have been attending for the past three years and plan on attending every year that I can!

  37. Jessica says:

    The Expo items are perfect and awesome!! I would buy them in a heartbeat! I attended the Chantilly, VA Expo for 5 years straight until our military family was moved to Germany – as soon as I get back I’m visiting the next Expo! I’ve driven 5 hours just to go to one! I’d share 1 of the shirts with my best scrapbooking retreat friend – she’d love it too! I wear scrapbooking shirts to every crop I go to or host!

  38. HawaiianLibrarian says:

    Went to Anaheim and San Diego and didn’t have time to buy these wonderful souvenirs. Mahalo for the op to win.

  39. Bonnie Ott says:

    I wait all year for the Scrapbook Expo, as there really aren’t any scrapbook stores near me anymore.
    Joanns and Michaels are the only places to buy scrapbook materials, and there supplies are not really what I like/need. So Scrapbook Expo is my stock up opportunity. I always have such a great time every year and I would love to win this prize package.

  40. Crystal H says:

    I enjoyed returning to Scrapbook Expo in Duluth Georgia this past July. I do however miss seeing SEI at the show. Hope they will return. I look forward to attending next year. The attach items look wonderful and I would like to tell all what they can learn at Expo by wearing the shirt.

  41. Michelle Montemurro says:

    I’ve been attending the So Cal Scrapbook Expo events since 2004 and LOVE them! I love the different crop themes and always have a great time! I’ve taken classes, cropped and shopped. I’ve seen companies start up and, sadly seen some end. I’ve learned new techniques and tried all kinds of products. I look forward to attending the events and hoe to be able to travel. To some of the other locations (outside of So Cal) in the coming year.

  63. Iliana Martinez says:

    I love Scrapbook Expo. This year I went to Orlando and have plans to attend it on 2016, also. Two years ago I went to Ft. Lauderdale. I were in Schamburg, IL several times because of my work, but for personal matters is hard to me because is more far and expensive than Orlando (I live in Puerto Rico), but I will love to be there. Since that, I am waiting the dates for the Scrapbook Expo in Orlando. I hope that could see you all there. The prize will remeber me all the good times in the Expo!

  64. Pat Bussiam says:

    Always look forward to going to the expo every year to see the new products and meet new people. Can’t wait to see you in the new facility. Everyone is so courteous and helpful. Tickets bought, classes scheduled, Friday can’t come soon enough.

I tried really hard by saving money and planning a head to go to at least 2 different expos but have fallen very ill each time and in the Hospital for several days right on or around the weekend of each expo. My goal is to see you all in Orlando 2016 so say a prayer for me please!!! Thank you for you time in reading this. Take Care Debbie

    Love me some Scrapbook Expo in SLC, Utah!!!

  115. Malena Koplin says:

    I love the expo. We’ve been attending in Illinois for more than five years and all three years it’s been in Milwaukee. It’s on my bucket list to attend the show in Anaheim because I heard it is the largest (even though as a teacher I don’t get vacation time in March). I’ve learned so much from the Expo through classes, volunteering, meeting with vendors and other crafters, and by trying new techniques in make-n-takes. I’ve been packed and ready to go since last weekend!

  127. Cyndi Gass says:

    This will be my very first Expo. Something like this isn’t normally in our budget, but I have been working side jobs to stash some cash. Plus my sweet hubby usually has me get my own gifts for my birthday since he doesn’t know exactly what I do or don’t have for crafting materials, so I will be getting my birthday cash to spend at the show. I’m just so excited!

  128. Roberta says:

I am in bliss and old enough not to care what anyone thinks!! Even my love of my life just shakes his head. But he goes to the Expo’s with me every year! I usually only get Anaheim and Ontario but that works for me!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  131. Tricia says:

  138. Melinda Smith Pace says:

    Well, it looks like I will not get to go to the Expo. I was planning to go for the first time in ten years. I have been looking forward to it but my children come first and one now has to got o Mayo Clinic in MN to special tests done due to her rare genetic disorder and my other child was in the hospital last night. I am so sad! I was really looking forward to all of it but sometimes it is not meant to be. I look forward to seeing everyone else’s posts so I can live through them!

  139. Jeanne Volmer says:

    I have attended the Scrapbook Expo in the Chicago land area since it was held at the Odeum in Villa Park, then Pheasant Run in St. Charles and now The Schaumburg Renaissance Center, plus the Scrapbook Expo in Milwaukee this past April. Definitely a Scrapbook Expo Junkie!

  140. Sandra says:

    So excited to be going to the Scrapbook Expo this year. I’ve been going every year with my BFF. We spend the weekend there since we don’t get to see each other that often because she lives in Delaware & I’m in NY. I can’t wait to see what is new this year & to restock on things I need. See you soon everybody.

  141. Lisa says:

    Hey Jen, thanks for thinking of us Canadians! Since we freeze for many months of the year, the benefit to us is that our time for scrapbooking is quite lengthy. Although the T-shirts have short sleeves, I’d love to be able to sport those shirts for Scrapbook Expo during our balmy but short days of summer!

  142. Billie Castleberry says:

    What a great prize pack! I wanted to attend the Orlando Expo last year but was too busy getting MARRIED!!! So I would love to win this prize…please?!?!?!
