Scrapbook Expo

Posted on 09. Mar, 2012 by in Create

On March 23-24, 2012 the Memories Scrapbooking Expo will visit Columbus Ohio again. See the Coupon tab on their site to save $2 at the door. Better yet, go to LivingSocial for a $5 ticket or $7 two-day pass.

I recommend going on Friday, since it’s usually packed on Saturday. There’s been a few less vendors each year, but it’s worth the trip to see new scrapbook and stamping products. You can spend several hours walking around seeing everything, wear comfy shoes! Some vendors do presentations, others let you try their products.

Scrapbook Supplies

If you are just starting to scrapbook, here’s a few basic items that you need to start with!  Once you have your supplies, see my tips on putting your pages together.

  1. You will need a good pair of scissors for cutting small items.  I recommend a Fiskars pair that is coated to keep from getting sticky.
  2. A paper trimmer ($20).   I recommend getting one at Michael’s or JoAnn’s with your 40% off coupon.
  3. Tape runner for gluing down your pictures ($5).  We have been using Tombo Adhesives and order refills in bulk for around $2.50. Read More…
