We had an amazing time at Inking Idaho on the Road this weekend! Thanks to Becky Roberts and her team for putting on a wonderful event!
All of these projects were made with products from Fun Stampers Journey. If you want to learn more, check out their website at www.funstampersjourney.com.
In addition to getting our creative juices flowing, we were blown away by the presenters at the event. And, of course the event wouldn’t be complete without the samples! Some of the coaches displayed their talent, showcasing the products and using different techniques to create some beautiful displays:
We gave away 2 VIP tickets to the show – congratulations to Kris Watkins and Ronna Gentry! Can't wait to see you at the show!

What is the Idaho Scrapbook Show?
The Idaho Scrapbook Show is the Treasure Valley’s first national paper crafting show, held in Boise, Idaho. It includes national paper crafting, stamping and scrapbooking vendors from across the nation. Attendees will have the opportunity to shop for the latest products and take classes from certified teachers to learn new techniques, create cards, scrapbook pages and other paper crafting projects.

Are classes included with my VIP payment?
No, classes are a separate purchase.
Can I take classes if I am not a VIP?
Of course! You can purchase classes online or at the door (as long as the class is not sold out). Classes can be found here: https://www.idahoscrapbookshow.com/class-schedule.html
Do I need to purchase a day pass if I am taking a class?
Yes, if you are not VIP, you will need to purchase a general day pass for the day(s) of your class(es).
How big is my crop space in VIP?
The set-up is two 8 foot tables put together for 4 people.
Will the crop have electricity?
The crop area will only have electricity in a centrally located 'Charging Station' that VIP's are free to use.
Can I sit with my friends?
We wouldn’t have it any other way! Just email your seating requests and let us know who you want to sit with.
Can we leave our craft stuff in the VIP area overnight?
That is 100% up to you. Idaho Scrapbook Show, Expo Idaho, and any of its exhibitors are not responsible for lost or stolen items. The VIP area will be roped off from the general public. VIP badges will be checked as everyone enters the VIP area and the staff and volunteers will keep an eye on the area. However, items left unattended are the responsibility of the person leaving them. The building will be locked overnight.
Will there be food at the show?
The show will have a Dutch Bros. truck both mornings from 9-11 and Expo Idaho will have a concession stand open all day Friday (until 8pm) and Saturday.
Can I bring my own food?
We are not policing small snacks, drinks or those with special dietary or medical needs as long as there are not coolers or large spreads of food.
What should I bring to work on (for VIP)?
You can bring projects to work on; however, keep in mind that crop space is limited. The exhibitors will have plenty of projects to work on for sale and make and takes, with lots of fun happening in every booth. If you forget something, they have EVERYTHING YOU NEED!
I bought a VIP ticket and now I am not able to go. Can I get a refund?
Tickets to the Idaho Scrapbook show are sold on the same basis as concerts sporting events and other one-time events. Once your registration and payment are confirmed, there are no refunds; however, tickets are transferable.
Do I need a physical ticket to enter the show?
No. Your payment verification is your receipt; you do not need physical tickets. When you arrive at the show, we will have your name at the entrance and welcome you to the fun!
We’ve been planning this event for so long it’s hard to believe that it’s less than 15 days away. We’d like to give you a sneak peek into the show by spotlighting our sponsors.
