For some reason, fall seems like a time of year when the “arts and crafts” side of people comes shining through. Perhaps it’s the string of holidays between October and the new year that brings out the crafter and decorator in us all.
With fall just around the corner, ScrapFest at Mall of America may appeal to your artsy-craftsy sensibilities. Beginning Friday morning at 9am with ten different workshop sessions, new sessions begin every hour on the hour following that until around 6pm or so, when the 5:00 session ends.
Workshops cover such things as layout techniques, stamping, journals, cardsets, holiday-themed designs, and lots more. Presenters for sessions include folks from BasicGrey, American Crafts, Quick Quotes, Reminisce, Bo-Bunny Press, GCD Studios, Hero Arts, Doodlebug Design, and many more. Check out the full list of creative experts presenting workshops.
Saturday follows the same basic schedule, but a few different sessions are tossed into the mix, while Sunday gets rolling at 11am and ends around 4pm just after the 3:00 workshops. Please check the workshop schedule, as many sessions are sold out during specific times. Make sure that you can catch the session you want to attend.
You will also be able to take part in the life-sized world’s largest scrapbook page in the rotunda at Mall of America. You’ll have a chance to be photographed as part of the page and to purchase copies of your photo.
Online registration is over for ScrapFest 2010, but you can still show up, pay your $20 registration fee and take part in all of the festivities, so if you enjoy scrapbooking, head over to Mall of America this weekend and take part in ScrapFest 2010.
