Freebie Friday – Stamp & Scrapbook Expo’s Creativity Center

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

When I attended my first Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, one of the many things I was impressed with was the Creativity Center. In the center of the show floor, I saw a group of very happy crafters. My curiosity piqued, I headed over and discovered that they had gathered around Lorraine Ungeheier at the Creativity Center. Lorraine is a very talented crafter who has been creating lovely projects for over 20 years. Lorraine helps her guests make FREE Make & Take projects and she is truly amazing! All you need to do is pull up a chair and soon you will be creating with a new best friend!

You already know Lorraine from her Sunday posts on Weekly Scrapper (Sundays with Lorraine) and we’d like to make it possible for you to come and craft with her in person! Leave a comment on today’s blog post and mention your favorite type of project. Do you enjoy layouts, cards, or mini albums? Home decor or pocket scrapbooking? Let us know your favorite type of paper crafting and you will be entered to win two tickets to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo of your choice in 2017.


Although the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo show year will end this weekend, we have been busily preparing our Expos for 2017. We’ve been working to make the Expo even bigger and better than before, and we would love to have you come and be our guest! Here’s our schedule for the new year, so look it over and decide which Expo you’d like to attend, then leave a comment to be entered for the giveaway. Jen Walker will be announcing all our winners when she returns on November 18th. This giveaway runs until midnight EST on Thursday, November 10th.

    Love the Expos. Been attending for probably 8 years now! I started out as a scrapbooker but tend to gravitate more towards cards now. I am seeing a lot of mixed media gel into all areas of crafting. I especially like learning new techniques that I learn DURING expo and then through follow up emails I receive AFTER expo.

  32. Andrea Dulaney says:

    I love to make cards. You can do so much with a card. I just started dabbling in scrapbooking a few months ago so I am still learning the ropes on that one. Can’t wait to go next year!

  33. Connie Ferguson says:

    I would have to say that my favorite is in the Home Décor category because I am a floral designer and I do so many vintage inspired weddings. It is always nice to add that bit of handmade to fit right into the theme. Just attended the Ontario, Ca. show. Loved it! Can’t wait till the 2017 shows!

  34. Susan Reddell says:

    My friends and I attend Santa Clara and Pleasanton in CA, but I would love to add Sacramento! Last spring I finished a 2 album set of my granddaughters life to age 18! Only three more grandchildren to go. Expo tickets would really help keep me motivated!

  35. Lisa Stayman says:

    I love to make mixed media layouts and albums. I would love tickets for Block B as I live 4 hrs from Orlando. It has been Many years since I last attended a Scrapbook Expo and I would be very grateful to receive tickets.

  36. Ida Thibodeau says:

    I enjoy making greeting cards for the 11 gals in my ladies group, other family, friends and the residents at the local nursing home. I find it very relaxing, and it gives pleasure to those who receive my cards. My niece is starting to get into card making and I’d enjoy taking here to the 2017 Scrapbooking Expo in Milwaukee. She always does a lot for others and this would be a way to give back to her.

  37. Donna D. says:

    I love to make cards, attended your Expo in Akron, OH. It was the fist I had heard about it. Would love to go next year.

    I really like doing the scrapbook layouts. it is nice to see how easy a page can be to put together. thank you for doing such a great job.

  40. Marianne Hobbs says:

    It’s taken me until Wednesday to comment because I keep trying to decide what my favorite is…and I can’t! I absolutely LOVE trying new techniques and ideas I see and learn from people/videos/pictures, etc. Ideas come from everywhere…including nature. Everything is so much fun to play with and create with. I guess the bottom line is, my favorite craft is the that I can make and give to someone that puts a smile on their face or eases a pain in their heart. That just plain makes me happy!! (a little selfish pleasure) Can’t wait to see you in Mesa in 2017!!

  41. Wanda M. says:

    Looking forward to attending Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA in 2017 on my birthday. I make cards mostly but enjoy seeing other crafty projects. Thank you for the chance to win tickets.
