One of my favorite parts of my job is definitely teaching at the Creating Keepsakes Conventions (CKC). These shows, which take place all over the country, bring enthusiastic scrappers together to create, play and have fun!
I’m actually typing this on the airplane on my way to CKC Manchester in New Hampshire. So, to get in the CKC spirit and give you an inside glimpse into the show, I have a few videos to share from my last CKC experience in St. Louis, MO.
First, let’s take a look at just a few of the cool class projects you can make at the show.
To really be CKC cool, you must dress yourself in the finest convention logo wear. Our store has some awesome clothing available, including the super popular “Scrap Chick” t-shirt. Plus, you’ll find an assortment of our latest CK products for sale. Click on the video below to take a look inside the store:
As a CK blog reader, you know how we feel about giveaways around here—the more the merrier! Well, the CKCs are no exception. We have class giveaways and the CKC team always hosts a fun layout contest, where awesome prizes are awarded! Here’s a look at some of the entries from the St. Louis show:
And what would any scrapbooking convention be without some fantastic scrap shopping? The Vendor Faire is packed with the latest products, as well as screamin’ deals and friendly faces. Here’s just a taste of what can be found:

Are you attending CKC Manchester this weekend? If so, please take a minute to say hello. I’ll likely be the one in the pink polka dot apron, holding the video camera. And if you’re not in the Manchester area, worry not; as I said before, we have conventions all over. Click here for a list of the towns we’ll be visiting this year. We hope to see ya at one soon.
