I am trying to decide between the Latest and Greatest tool class and Product class at Scrap book Expo. If anyone else has already taken them and can tell me what each class included, I would appreciate it. Thanks!
I took a few classes at the expo last year. I dont remember the names, but 1 was by Faber Castell. The class was ok, the goody bag was fun, but the teacher didn't seem like she had a clue. Every question was answered with "I dont know! Lets try it and see!" Which I do all the time on my own, but if youre representing a product, shouldn't you know a little bit about it?!
Another class I took was all about different closures and we made a mini book with all kinds of closing techniques. That was fun and fast paced.
I know there were at least 2 more, but I can't really remember them. All of the classes give you something to take away and they all offer give aways during class.
There are also "classes" (such as by Queen and Co) that are basically just live commercials for their products. You dont do anything but sit, listen, watch and leave with free product.
Most of the vendors giving classes will also give you a special coupon ($ off, free this that etc) at their booth during the show, which is always nice.
I'd say read the descriptions of all the classes, then pick 1 (or 3!) that sounds interesting to you. Just dont forget to leave time for shopping!!
I have taken the Latest and Greatest three years in a row. The teacher, sorry can't remember her name, (a blonde girl) is WONDERFUL!!!! She has great tips and tricks. I think we normally do four layouts, can't remember if this is a one page layout with the option of buying page 2 on the demo floor or not. Latest and Greatest is one of our favs!!!
It is a class that move FAST!!! Do not expect to finish the layouts in class. But she will give you a picture with the layout to complete it afterwards. Well worth the money!!!!!!! We are always pleased!!!
binkiemonstermom you are talking about Shelby at Embellish It. These are different classes that they the Scrapbook Expo people are teaching at their expos this year. They are lecture classes where they supposedly give you $80 worth of product. One is a Tool class and the other is a Product class. I was just wondering which one was better....
I just took this class at CKC in Oct Chicago with Sophia with Strictly Scrapbooking. It was product based and we received a lot of stuff and it was well worth it. I would love to take one that would be tool based. I met someone who took the Scrapbooking Expo class which was tool based and she had a lot of wonderful tools. So, different Expos but the same concept, loads stuff and low pressure. I hope this helps.
