I attended my first Scrapbook Expo earlier this month and it was pretty awesome.
After my favorite scrapbook store shut it’s doors my paper stash has been looking pretty sad. I have yet to find another paper supplier for the everyday so when I heard the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo was coming to town I marked my calendar right away.
There were a variety of vendors selling all the scrapbook and stamping supplies.
Some of my favorite paper companies — Echo Park and Authentique — were there, plus vendors who sold more of my favorite papers. I was in good company for sure.
There were also lots of demos and make and take stations.
I discovered and admired new-to-me techniques and crafts.
We impressed ourselves with this easy make and take! It was like magic.
There were also on-going workshops and a large open crafting space deemed the “Olympics.”
Check out my stash!
Best deal of the day: 54 sheets of 12×12 paper for $15! Plus, my friend Joy scored big with washi tape!
Me thinks the Scrapbook Expo will be an annual tradition! For now, I’m excited to put my supplies to good crafty use!
