GREETING CARD &
SCRAPBOOKING CONVENTIONS & EVENTS

When I am really looking for inspiration for creating new greeting cards or for scrapbooking ideas I make sure I attend any local stamping, scrapbooking or crafting conventions or events. I bring my digital camera and take lots of snapshots of new design ideas. And of course, I always pick up a few new embellishments, brass dry embossing templates, rubber stamps, patterned paper, crafting tools or whatever else I find that I can't live without! If you have never attended a crafting event...you just have to go. You will have so much fun....even if you don't want to spend any money on new supplies. There are always free demonstrations showing new ways to use the products that are being sold at the events. There are always new people to meet and share ideas with. And it's just a great way to get away for a couple of hours and spend time with like-minded people who enjoy the same hobby.

On this page you will find listings and links to as many conventions and crafting events that I can find listed on the internet. Hopefully, you will be able to find a Rubber Stamp Convention, Scrapbooking Convention or Greeting Card Event within driving distance of where you live.
