Give away for Play! at Home …

I’m on my way to CHA and Play! in Anaheim. It’s been a bit CRAZY with this trip/event on the heels of the holiday season, but I have a truly amazing team and we have pulled it off. I’m writing this post from the Southwest jet that is taking me to the Orange County airport — first time accessing the cloud from the clouds (for me!) After I finished packing last night, Kayce had posted our Play! at Home classroom for final review, so I sat back and took it all in. You know what? This is going to be a FANTASTIC event and it just sort of hit me how super cool it is that we can broadcast portions of the live event to our entire BPC community, well to those who are signed up of course. Earlier this week Kayce suggested that we invite our teachers to do a really BIG giveaway of TEN FREE SEATS to the Play! at Home. classroom. I LOVE giving stuff away, but I haven’t had even one spare moment to seize that opportunity … until now!


So, let’s do it.

I have TEN FREE SEATS to give away, but there is one small stipulation. If you are already enrolled in this event/classroom you are not eligible simply because no one will be able to process a refund for you, if you win. Sorry! Don’t worry—the experience will be worth every penny. If you’re not yet registered for Play! at Home and you want to experience this live + online event, leave me a comment and tell me what you want me to share from the floor of the Craft and Hobby Association’s annual trade show (CHA.) I’ll be there for the next three days and I’ll be posting pictures to my instagram account. Tell me what YOU want to see and I’ll do my best to find it and share it with you. I’ll select winners for Play! at Home on Monday night, because the classroom opens Tuesday morning and the event kicks off Tuesday evening.

p.s. If you don’t WIN and still want to come via your Internet connection, be sure to use promo code SHINYHAPPY so that you’ll save $20 of enrollment!

    Your happy colors are my happy colors, so whatever line you can find that speaks to you with those happy colors in mind is what I’d like to see. Thanks for such a cool giveaway! (LOVE that you’ve been blogging more!!!)

  12. What’s the trendyist thing you’re seeing Stacy?

  13. I want to Play! Would love to see the coolest new travel related product. Have fun exploring!

  14. Tim Holtz!

  15. Anything and anything fun! Hmmm, I think I’d pick a line I’d pick the Heidi Swapp booth.

  16. Oh my, what a fabulous giveaway. I’ve been drooling over it, but I haven’t bought it because I’m saving my pennies for CKC coming up shortly. I would love to see what’s new with Project Life. I’ve seen some sneak peeks from others, but not PL.

  17. Kim Borochaner says:

    I want to see as much as possible!! I am interested in everything as I am going through scrapbook withdrawal!!! All of our local stores have succumbed to the economy and I so miss being able to see what is new and exciting!!!!!

  18. While I do love seeing the new products, what I think is fun to see are pictures of all of the attendees and vendors with each other…pictures of you with your team having a blast, pics of other scrapbook professionals that you don’t get to see all the time…I love to see you all having a great time together!

  19. Something that speaks to you in regards to the future of memory-keeping, storytelling – does something stand out ?

  20. Laura Turcotte says:

    While the new products, trending and emerging, are what I would love to see, I am also interested in seeing the booths…there must be some ‘unusual’ ‘different’ ones…:) Thanks for the chance!

  21. Thank you for a chance to win!
    I would love to see pretty new papers and the new lines from graphic 45!!

  22. I would love to see the new journal Heidi Swapp has created — I’m very curious about it and would like to know her thought process for creating it! Would it be a great way to “play” AND record everyday life in a new way?

  23. Mine will be easiest and I hope I win so I can see it! I ADORE the little pigtails you do your hair in on occasion. I would love to see you in your pigtails!

  24. I would love to see Shimelle’s new paper line that I just heard about plus is it true she is pregnant!! Would love to confirm that!

  25. Michelle McKean says:

    Would love to see Kelly Purkey’s new line and anything that you absolutely love.

  26. Jan Geheb says:

    I heard Amy Tan has embossing folders in her new line?!!!!!! I would love to get a peek at those! Also would love to see Heidi Swapp’s line. I’ve heard her say she was excited about it because it was something she needed! If someone who creates as beautifully as her “needs” something, well then I want it too!!! Lol!

  27. Angie Kyle says:

    I would LOVE a video of you on a walking tour taking us, the consumer, on a tour of the event showing us the booths. Since we cannot attend the event, it would be the closest thing to get to go. And then, of course, you spending a little more time in your favorite booths.

  28. I want to see pics of Noelle & izzy shooting their videos and the new plus one collection by Amy tangerine. Have fun!

  29. Fran Chopp says:


    I would love to see what’s new from tools to products. I too love color and I have seen glimpses of new product lines from Tim Holtz to Studio Calico. Can’t wait to see what is new. Thanks for a chance to win a seat In the Play class.

  33. I look forward to all your pictures, but at the moment I am particularly interested in smaller size albums, especially if they have pocket page options. Ordinarily I scrap 12×12 traditional pages, but since taking your i.scrap class last year, have been enjoying using smaller albums for complete projects.

  34. The Doodlebug booth always makes me happy. I’d like to see pictures of that!

  35. Carol Casavant says:

  62. Julie Hall says:

    Stacy, I would love to support Teresa Collins as I have read her husband is very ill fighting cancer. She is so very brave to be caring for him and her family while she is
    busy designing beautiful products for the scrap booking industry. I can feel the love she has put into her new lines and appreciate her talent during these difficult times in her life. If you can, give her a big hug from all of us that follow her daily blog. I appreciate the opportunity to win a seat in your Play event. You always do an amazing job in everything you do.
