Freebie Friday – Stamp & Scrapbook Expo


Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday! With seven Stamp & Scrapbook Expos events completed and twelve left to go in the 2016 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 favourite workshops, what to bring, etc.
  • Many of our exhibitors post information about sales or other products in their booths too.
  • New this year, we are offering exclusive giveaways only on the local Facebook Groups!



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) loves to see you having fun! Here are a few photos from the Orlando EXPO …

Wasn’t that fun! I feel like I had a flashback to the last Stamp & Scrapbook EXPO event I attended. Oh the memories! I love to see all the fun the guests are having at the EXPOs. I hope you will all continue to share your photos to the group and using the hashtags #SSBECrop and #SSBE2016 so that I can live vicariously through you all from my home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
