Scrapbook in a Day Stamp Camp

Hello Stampers!

February 24, 2009

One of my Stampin’ Up!® goals for 2009 is to create some interest in scrapbooking. If you’re not a scrapbooker, don’t stop reading yet! While scrapbooking can be a time-consuming, expensive hobby, it doesn’t have to be, and there are few other hobbies that give such lasting results. I’ve been scrapbooking for almost a decade, and I love to sit down and look back at albums from several years ago. A scrapbook is so much more personal than a photo album because it includes the story along with the pictures. Whether you’re a novice or a long-time scrapbooker, our scrapbook kits make scrapbooking fun and easy; each kit includes coordinating textured cardstock, patterned paper, and self-adhesive die cuts and borders. The kits are available in a variety of themes and color schemes.

On Saturday, April 18th - 10-3 pm, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to make easy and beautiful scrapbook pages in a cost-effective manner. Working with your chosen Simply Scrappin’® kit, you’ll create 14 -16 6x6 scrapbook pages in about three hours. Besides your wonderful pages, you’ll go home with informative handouts and copies of the Scrap Maps we use so that you can create even more pages at home.

A 2.5-hour scrapbook class at local retailers can cost up to $25 and you create two or three pages. The fee for my scrapbooking class is $40 with pre-pay registration. You can save 10% off the registration fee by having a friend register that hasn’t been to one of my Stampin’ Up! events. Your registration fee includes: a scrapbooking kit, guided instruction, 10 sheets 12x12 white cardstock, 5 sheets of 8.5x11 cardstock in coordinating colors, 5 yds. ¼” grosgrain ribbon in coordinating color, handouts, Scrap Maps, use of my stamps and ink pads, snacks, and a small goodie bag. There will be a great door prize, too! All you need to bring is a paper trimmer (large enough to cut 12” paper), scissors, and plenty of photo-safe adhesive. Pictures are optional as you can place them in at a later date. If you have a VersaMark® pad or a stamp set that coordinates with your kit, you may want to bring that, too.

All participants will receive a 10% discount on select scrapbook supplies ordered through me at the time of registration or at the class. You can take 10% off of the following: Dotto Adhesive and refill (p. 191), Snail Adhesive and refill (p.191), Journaling pens (p. 190), Paper trimmer (p. 189), Paper snips (p. 189), VersaMark pad (p. 190), Albums (p. 187), Page protectors (p. 187), Kraft Keepers (p. 187) and Paper holders (p.197). Note that I will be pre-ordering at the end of March which occurs during Sale-A-Bration, so you can get a free SAB stamp set with an order of $50 or more.

To sign up for the class, email me for the registration form and return the bottom portion to me along with your payment BY MARCH 25th. If you’re taking advantage of the discount on scrapbook supplies, call or email me first so I can give you your total. S&H calculated before discount. You can see the Simply Scrappin’ kit choices in the catalog on pages 162-165 or online at www.stampinup.com.

*Please note this is a stamp camp so coupons are not allowed.

Finally, a few other times during the year, I’ll host a crop at my home. Bring your own supplies and photos and scrap the night away. The fee will be $6, and you can use my stamp sets, inkpads, punches, and the Big Shot to add titles, die cuts and other embellishments to your pages. You don’t have to place any orders – just enjoy uninterrupted time to work on your albums or cards.

I hope you’ll join me for a fun day of scrapbooking.

  1. Sarah, I agree 100% with you about scrapbooking...it is a story that we are telling others. Your event sounds like so much fun!

  2. Sarah - I understand 100% about the scrapbooking and have made a goal for myself in 2009 as well - get back to it - I have been slack in working on them since I've been making cards. Your event sounds like so much fun - wish I lived in your area.


Thank you for stopping by my blog. I look forward to reading your comments!!
