Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Hello Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends! As scrapbookers, we tend to be social people who like to share our love of preserving our memories as well as our time shopping and learning together. We record our exciting moments and share them for all to see. The Stamp & Scrapbook EXPO team hosts about 20 shows a year and are always thrilled to see you share photos of your time spent at the EXPO.

Many of these photos are shared in our various Facebook groups and on Instagram. We ask our friends to use the hashtags #SSBE2016 and #SSBECrop so we can easily find your awesome photos as we LOVE to see you enjoying yourself at the EXPOs.

Check out all this fun ….

Recently, a suggestion was made in the Somerset EXPO group to create badges so that as everyone walked the show floor, they would be able to recognize other members from the Facebook group. The badges that were created were all individual works of art! As group members saw the other badges they stopped to take photos together, smiled across booths and felt a warmth from being a part of this special community.

#SSBE2016 - Stamp & Scrapbook Expo Attendee Badges

If you are on Facebook, the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo groups for each show are a great place to visit. Local consumers can chat with each other, exhibitors and EXPO staff prior to the show about EXPO related topics and then they also have a wonderful community of like minded friends throughout the year. I hope you will join us!

This week I thought it would be fun to give away a Stamp & Scrapbook t-shirt! Would you like to win one for yourself? Available in black or white, this t-shirt will make you think of the EXPO every time you where it! Here is a photo of the t-shirts and the lovely Betty!

  39. Michelle Chockran says:

    I took a very long break from making cards and scrapbooking, about 18 months. It was pretty rough because my mom took I’ll and never recovered. We lost her 1 year ago June. While talking to my sister, she told me to help get out of the low I was in, I needed to go back and do what I enjoy. So I saw you where coming to Chantilly and the rest his history. I came, I learned, I spent….Boy did I spend. Had a blast. Now I’m in full blown card making and scrapbooking. Thank you for being at the right place at the right time. Hope to see you next year

  40. Kim of Colorado Springs, CO says:

    My sister and I went to the Denver Expo…..we were so thrilled with our purchases and with the make and takes. Evidently we forgot to buy our t-shirts! This was my second time at the expo, but my sister’s first time. She was a little overwhelmed with all of the things to see and she enjoyed herself so much! I would like a white t-shirt for my sister. Thank you!

  41. gabriella rollins says:

  50. Laura P. says:

    I would love a shirt to crop in. Unfortunately with the hotel sold out already I won’t be able to attend the crop now. Bummer. By the time I could get time off work approved the Hyatt was sold out for Santa Clara. And now the same thing with Sacramento. There needs to be more rooms blocked off. For those coming from out of town and who won’t have a car a hotel within walking distance is an essential. Not everybody can book months in advance.

  51. Cynthia Poritz says:

    I attended two Expos this year, and maybe a third. Definitely going to do 2 again next year.

  52. Lisa says:

    I am using the techniques I learned in several classes at the Scrapbook Expo in Denver and can’t wait for next years event to learn more. I would love be to wear a pin representing all our Denver Facebook group!

    Went to my first Expo in Duluth, Georgia and had a blast!! I loved the make and take and the 2 Heartfelt Creations classes I took. Spent lots of money and met lots of new creative “friends”. Thanks for getting all this together for us to escape our everyday life and just enjoy and create!!!! I would love to win this shirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sue

  54. Sandra Gibbs says:

    I had so much fun at the Somerset NJ Expo! It was great meeting the ladies I’ve been “talking” to before the Expo on FB! I’m glad we made the badges so I could meet you all. I can’t wait for next year!

  56. Carollee says:

    great pictures everyone. I loved all of the themes. I can not wait until our Scrapbook Expo in October. I have been waiting a year to go. I was hoping to go last year but I was bottle feeding a kitten and he wouldnt eat for anyone but me. I cant wait to take in the whole experience from the Expo,, from the camaraderie of fellow crafters, to meeting all of the wonderful people who make the expo such a success, right down to the make in takes, the demonstrations of products and of course the shopping. I cant wait to do some Christmas shopping .

  57. super stick chick says:

  65. Alena Baldwin-Brown says:

    Looked at the shirts at the recent Somerset Expo but didn’t get one. Had “non-buyers” remorse all the way home…. ☹️. Would love to win one here.! The Expo was great- saw some fantastic new products, learned new techniques & made some new friends. Yeah!

  66. Roberta Sonntag says:

    We had a great time at the Santa Clara Expo and will be seeing you again in Sacramento!! I love the FB badge idea and will wear/display one proudly! I have an old “Crop Circles” tshirt and would really enjoy retiring it to wear a new one!! 😉

  68. Carmen says:

    The 2916 Florida show came & went. We had a wonderful time with Dave & Betty! We miss you all and wish we could have planned our trip to Chicago this weekend instead of next weekend. Would have been cool to stop in and say hello again. Keep safe everyone and we will see you in 2017.

  72. Carolyn Robertson says:

    I love going to Scrapbook Expo. Every year I say I’m not going because I have everything I need, NOT. Every year I end up going and having a good time. I love the cropping area at the end of the day. I can finish what I’ve learn in class. Until next year from Schaumburg,IL

  73. Sharyn Childs says:

    Another Scrapbook T-shirt…..YES, that’s what I need. I already think I’m a Scrapbook Expo billboard. (I tell everyone I meet in craft stores about the Expo if they haven’t heard of it.) An Scrapbook Expo t-shirt ….well let’s just say that it will be great advertisement. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  74. Lynn Hanson says:

    I discovered the show only two years ago and was so amazed that I was upset with myself for not checking out this venue earlier! Love the vendors and the creativity I found at the show in Sacramento, California. Can’t wait until October when it returns here.

  75. Kathryn says:

  77. Mary Pat says:

    My sister and I went to the Shaumberg, IL Expo and cropped, shopped and had a great time! I would love a t-shirt to have as a sort-of souvenir of our weekend there. We both have never won any of the drawings or door prizes, so this would be fun!

  78. Robin Bennett says:

    That would be awesome to attend an expo in an expo shirt! I am all set up to attend the Mesa Arizona expo in September.

  79. Teresita Sherman says:

    I feel I should win a shirt BECAUSE…. The scrapbook expo isn’t in San Diego for 2016 and I couldn’t buy my own!! 😭 Scrapbook Expo… I need you in my life!! Come back to me…. (Here in San Diego!). 😬

  80. Ellen Kramlich says:

    This was my first year to attend. The mega make and take on Thursday night was so amazing, I’d have had a great time if I’d gone for just that. Super glad I stayed Thur. – Sat. MEGA FUN!!
