scrapbookers, stampers stampede to annual expo
Where can you experience nine scrapbook and stamp vendors from the upper Midwest in less than seven hours for only $4? Why, the 2015 Stampede Stampin’ and Scrappin’ Expo, of course. Now in its ninth year, the event will be on Saturday, March 14, at the Eagles Club in Lake Hallie. The event includes makes and takes, demos, stamps and embellishments, scrapbooking ideas, inks, and papers. A Card Buffet (super-size make ’n’ take) will be from 8am to 9:30am and from 2pm to 3:30pm. (Sign up for that in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.) A Card Contest with a St. Patrick’s Day theme will also be held. Judges will announce the winner at 1:45pm. Door prizes will be featured. A major grand prize drawing will be in the later afternoon. Winners must be present to win. Food will be available for an extra charge. The vendors to date include: Close to My Heart and Picture This from Eau Claire; Bargain Bill’s, Rice Lake; Bella Rosa Paper Arts, Oshkosh; Creative Vision, Richfield; Door County Rubber Stamps, Sturgeon Bay; Fun Stampers Journey, Cottage Grove, Minn.; Stampin’ Up!, Bloomer; and 31, Wilson.
