Giveaway :: Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention

As moms, we are constantly surrounded by precious memories.  The entrance of our children into the world, those first wobbly steps, the beginning of school…  I’m not sure about you, but I’m constantly searching for ways to retain those treasured memories.  To jot them down on paper and create something tangible that I can look back on for years and years to come.  Which is why I was so excited to find out about our sponsors at the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention!

Houston_Scrappers1This one of a kind convention is headed back to Houston for the 8th year in a row on August 28th – 29th at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center.  There they will featured the hottest, new education classes, fun prizes to win at the crops, a “Scoops Embellishment Bar” hosted by Queen & Co., swag bags full of products from the best brands, and so much more.  Here’s just a little bit of what you can expect…


On both Friday and Saturday, there will be a Vendor Shopping Faire packed with scrap-tastic vendors including SEI, Close to My Heart, The Paper Loft, Paper Wizard, and many others. You can shop ’til you drop from 10am – 6pm on Friday, and 9am – 5pm on Saturday. And if you want to get in before the rest of the crowd for special deals and make and takes, you can purchase an Early Entry Ticket to shop at 9am on Friday – an hour before the rest of the crowd!


Taught by the industry’s top experts, their hands-on classes are a wealth of knowledge and lots of fun! You’ll learn the newest crafty techniques and have the chance to play with the latest products. PLUS, you’ll leave each class with a whole bunch of loot and inspiration to keep you crafting all year long.


The Thursday, Friday, and Saturday crops are the PERFECT opportunity for you to gather your girlfriends, scrapbooking tools, and photos to start new projects {or complete unfinished ones!} while having a great time. Games, prizes, product demos, and more will be offered, and remember that Embellishment Bar mentioned above? Join Queen & Co. on Friday night at the Friday Night Red Carpet Crop to get a “taste” of all their fun embellishments too!

Houston_Crafty1Now that you know a little bit about what to expect, check out their website to learn more and to save money by purchasing your ticket online {PLUS you’ll receive a free gift from Sizzix valued at $10 too!}.  And if you register online for 3+ classes or crops, you will receive an ALL ACCESS shopping pass, including a Friday Early Entrance Ticket and 2 days of shopping tickets also!  Grab some girlfriends, make it a weekend, and spend some special time making those precious memories into beautiful keepsakes.  Oh, and be sure to enter below for your chance to win {2} 1-Day Shopping Passes for Friday or Saturday too…

Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
