Scrapbook lovers all over America, unite! The Great American Scrapbook Convention has finally set up the dates for this year’s Texas iteration. Running from June 12th to the 14th, 2014, you can drop by the Arlington Convention Center and have your dose of everything related to scrapbooking.
The event will, of course, welcome anyone and everyone, whether regular enthusiasts or budding hobbyists of the craft of scrapbooking. Included in their line-up of activities will be a products bazaar, tutorials from the pros, and cropping. It also looks like the festivities will run until late, as implied in this activities description on the event’s official page:
Bring your photos and cropping supplies and be prepared to crop until the wee hours, creating scrapbook pages and making new friends! Contestants, door prizes, and goody bags are a feature at every cropping party. It’s a chance to gather with old friends and to make new ones.
As there are going to be contests, you may want to brush up on your scrapbooking skills in the meantime. The event won’t be till the second half of this year, anyway, so for sure, you should have a lot of time to improve on your style and techniques.
In case you want to make this as an opportunity to showcase your hobbyist-slash-business management skills, you can also bring your finished products over and set up your own booth. For this particular objective, coordinate with the events team for your booth application. Professionals will also advise that you stock up on scrapbooking supplies wholesale, so that you can just churn out one scrapbooking delight after another.
Fortunately for you, online scrapbook stores, such as AllScrapBookSteals.com, offer a lot of great finds, and at discounted costs. In fact, if you’re bent on going all-out for multiple major scrapbooking projects, you’ll be sure to save some more on your materials expense if you buy wholesale scrapbooking supplies.
It’s always nice to be able to share your talent with other aficionados and fans of the scrapbooking craft. More important than that, however, is the strong sense of community that arises out of conventions such as this one. It’s the best time to meet new peers, establish new connections, and expand the world of scrapbooking delight in America.
