Freebie Friday – Stamp & Scrapbook Expo Apron

SSBE Apron

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

I have a special treat for you this Friday. I was answering questions in one of the EXPOs Facebook groups, and read a discussion about the awesome aprons from the Latest & Greatest Mixed Media workshops. The comments were so positive that I thought it would be fun to give one away to one of YOU!

    Primarily my crafting is focused on scrapbooks; however, I’ve recently been introduced to clear stamps and now I’m obsessed! I can’t stop making cards! ❤❤❤

  2. barb macaskill says:

    OOOOO! This is calling my name!!! I no longer have any tops that are not covered with one medium or another because I just can’t stop making a mess! This would convince hubby to take me shopping for new tops since I would be able to keep them clean! LOL Great quote on it and SO true!! Fingers crossed!
    COngratulations Cindy on being last week’s winner! Have fun!

  3. Denise Bryant says:

  4. Brenda Wyman says:

    I love it! I started out scrapbooking and now my joy is card making. I also enjoy working with stamps on my cards. I will be attending the Expo in Mesa in a couple of weeks. I CAN’T WAIT!

    Going to the all day crop in Sacramento next month! This apron would be great to wear while I crop, shop and take my class!!!

  6. Jodi Clark says:

    I sooo want and need this! I took a different mixed media class at the expo and some of the ladies had this apron from the latest and greatest class. I was a tad bit jealous 😉 Love it!

  8. Cindy V. says:

    This is soooo me!!! My craft room is messy and I’m a complete mess when I leave the room!! But… I always say that if you’re not messy then you’re not being creative!!! ?

  9. Barbara Dreyfus says:

    I love this apron! Yes I get messy when I’m creating – I love my glitter. I like to bake and get messy with that as well. I guess creativity is just messy, oh well it is all fun!

  10. Marie Q says:

    That is so stinkin’ cute!! And practical as I make a big mess with inks, paints & all sorts of goodies.
    Love it

  11. Susan G says:

    This is the cutest apron I’ve ever seen not meant for baking! Can’t wait to attend in Mesa in 2 weeks!

  12. Sandi Schultz says:

    What a cute apron with such a honest message! I work best in a mess, it helps me think! Thanks for the giveaway!! 🙂

  13. Liz Kostro says:

    Love the apron! So here it is 3:30 am and I am finishing up a Wedding card and Christening Card. Creativity is not only messy (should see my tables) but also puts me in a “zone” where I don’t even know what time it is!

  14. Barb brancel says:

    Bot do i need this!! My scraping buddies laugh at me cuz they say i look like i jumped in to a bucket of glitter when ive finished my project!!

  15. Linda Correa says:

    My hubby says I am the glitter queen. I always have glitter on my clothes , my hair my skin….I even get it on him wjen I give him a hug or a kiss…..Save my marriage…send me an apron, please

  16. Mary Lee Brawley says:

    This quote fits me to a tee and the apron would too! Not only am I a cluttered scrapper, I’m in the process of moving so my craft room is full of boxes too!

  17. Ida Thibodeau says:

    I love making greeting cards and treat boxes for the gals in my women’s group. Also, my niece works at an assisted living facility and I make cards and other treats made out of paper. It’s a wonderful hobby that lets me share my talent with others and it gives others a good feeling to know that someone has thought of them in a special way.

  18. Cori W says:

    Thank you for the chance to win this apron. I love the quote about how creativity is messy. I am a very messy crafter. It would be nice to have an apron for crafting, so my regular apron can stay in the kitchen.

  19. Rennie Harris says:

    I am a messy crafter and would love an apron to keep the paint, glue, water, ink, etc. off of my clothes.

  20. Tammy Goecks says:

    I totally need that apron. It is so true! Maybe my mom would stop complaining if she saw that, but that’s probably not likely.

  21. Robin Bennett says:

    As soon as I saw that apron, I said that I need to get that apron! Now I see that I have a chance to win it!!!!! WooHoo!!! Thanks for the chance!

  22. Sandi B says:

    I would love to have one of these aprons. Love the design and the pouch is perfect. Will they be on sale also.

    Thanks for the chance to win one.

  23. Sweet April says:

    I love,all the messy situations I get myself into because that shows me that I finished my cards or lay outs! Horray for messyness!!! Great giveaway!

  24. Ginger says:

    I went to last year’s Expo in Marlborough and was so excited! So many of my creative venues went away, I’m sure due to the economy. I will be attending the Expo again this year and hope you will continue to grace Massachusetts for many years to come. This apron will remind me of what inspiration and joy your event brings!

  25. Janice Patterson says:

    Adorable Apron! Would be a great thing to use in my crafting adventures! Thanks for the opportunity!

  26. Judy Hawk Estrada says:

    I could use a win for a change of pace. A win would be wonderful! I enjoy making cards very much. Have been though a few sad hurddles this year & looking forward to some me time & crafting. I lost my sister almost a year ago. Her husband passed in May & the issues & problems after that have been unbeliveable.

  27. Sue says:

    I would love to have this apron around me when doing my workshops. I have a special “spot” in my heart for polka-dots and really think this is so cute! Great giveaway too.

  28. Vivian D says:

    That quote is sooo true! No matter what I do The mes Is always big! Thank you for The chance to win. You guys are awesome!

  29. Christy B says:

    Using this interpretation, I can now tell my husband that the reason my scrapbook room looks the way it does is because I am the most creative person on the planet.

  30. Joan Wamsley says:

    This apron suits me to a T. hahaha, My sewing room is a disaster because i’m always moving from one project to another without bothering to take the time to clean up first. I have carried that bad habit onto the scrapbooking table . Oh well, I still get projects done 🙂

  31. Claudia Delasota says:

    It is so much fun to get freebies. And this apron it’s just so perfect. Very happy to be able to leave my comment here. ?

  32. Michelle Sacca says:

    Mixed media is my passion.. Having inky hands, pasted up with modeling paste, using my brush as my wand, and getting my glitter on makes me feel like I have the most colorful life on the planet.. Aprons are a must have and loving those polka dots..

  33. Sharyn Childs says:

    I tell everyone that when I start working on cards or a scrapbook page that I am sending myself to “Time Out”. 🙂 My husband cringes because he knows what a mess I’ll be making. This apron would not only help me out in the “messy situation” but would also be a constant reminder to my husband great things can come from messy situations. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  34. Denise says:

    Many see an apron and only think of the creativity in the kitchen – Well magic happens in the craft room too… I would love to wear this apron! Thanks for the opportunity!

  35. Ellen says:

    I mostly scraobook, but occasionally make cards.
    Ive been scrapping forever, before it became popular. Never liked plain photo album pages!

  36. Debbie P says:

    OMGosh I absolutely LOVE this apron! That super adorable polka dot pouch on it would be such a lifesaver since I seem to temporarily ‘lose’ the lids to my chalks, the blade cover for my scissors, and my tape runners a lot with all the projects I have going on at once LOL! Thank you for the chance to win it!

  37. Barbara Mosher says:

    OMG! I LOVE this apron. If I won I would be the hit of my scrap booking club. Lots of the girls have some sort of cover up so their clothes don’t get messy but not me. I look at the two outfits I wear when scrapping and I can tell what card or scrapbook page I made with that spot on my outfit. Would I be the envy of all the girls if I should win. Please consider selling them. I would take a dozen just for my friends.

  38. Katherine Whittington says:

    This apron is the greatest! It would truly be a treasure to have one! With the mess I make crafting it would be put to good use! Good luck Ladies!!!

  39. Kathryn says:

    Oh my goodness! Love this apron! Always like to have a cover over my clothes to protect them from the inks and paints that I use on my projects. Would love to buy some too for my friends too. Hope I win it!!

  40. Connie Jo Keeling says:

    What a great apron! I’ve been looking for one for awhile and would love to show it off to my group… Would probably get several to come with me to the next expo. What fun!

  41. Jo-An. says:

    Strictly card maker, would love to have an apron to show off at ladies stamp nights. Looks so much nicer than a towel on your lap.

  42. Judy Larson says:

    An apron was my Grandma’s favorite thing to wear. The strings were tied, it was always freshly washed, and maybe even pressed. You would not believe the things she used it for. But I don’t believe for scrapbooking or cardmaking. I’m sure she would be pleased if I were to have this apron to use for just that. I would love to get this wonderful apron.

  43. Vicki Miller says:

    That apron would help my clothes stay cleaner. I
    am a creative messy crafter like many others. I raise a favorite adhesive to Scrapbook Expo, a premier company!

  44. Diane Rey says:

    I love scrapbooking and have been doing it for years. I just retired and went to a stamping show and would love to start making cards, but I do think scrapping is where my heart lies. I’m enjoying researching new techniques on line. I would love to win this beautiful apron as I’m starting the next chapter of my life.

  45. Deena Morris says:

    Cute cute apron. I love it … and it is true! I am a very messy crafter, so I must be very very creative LOL… seriously- sometimes I just have to stop to clean a place to work I have so much clutter around me… .Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win something. Have a great week! See you in Mesa!

  46. Mary Boedeker says:

    I’m very messy, so I’m REALLY crafty!
    No – I wish, I’m ocd and my craft room is always organized but I’m still crafty.

  47. Sarah says:

    Oh this apron rocks! Scrapbooking and cardmaking is a way to share your memories with others. I love being creative and somehow my area is always a mess. Looking forward to being crafty again soon!

  48. Cindy K says:

    Hi Jen! The cute apron drew my attention to this post, and as I read it, I saw my name as the winner of the Expo tickets! Thank you for such an awesome prize! E-mailing you my address now!

  49. Gina Y. says:

    I sure don’t envy the person who has to choose a winner! Good luck to all! This apron would go super perfect with my big SBE drinking cup! Matchy Matchy, baby!

  50. Stacey Plaisted says:

    I first went to a stamp party and I thought scrapbooking looked boring, so I decided to make cards because I bought cards often. I found that I could NOT make cards as well as I wanted after all. I tried scrapbooking with some photos of my children and I was hooked! You know you have an obsession for the art when you purchase a whole wall unit of shelves, cabinets and drawers just to create in your very own space. (and because I have that much paper and supplies) I love it!

  51. Rakhi A says:

    An apron defines an artist or a crafter.
    The more messier the apron, the more fun I have had in my craft room. This is perfect for me. It’s super cute and fun.

  52. Leta Ingmire says:

    That apron is adorable. I sure could put it to good use. When I create there is always a mess. (Usually involves glitter lol)

  53. Deb H says:

    I definitely could use this apron. It would save my shirts from the paint that seems to find onto them. The saying is wonderful and the polka dots add a touch of fun.
