Giveaway | Scrapbook Soup

Last week I had the pleasure of traveling to Ohio to take part in the taping of the upcoming new season of Scrapbook Soup that starts airing in July on PBS stations around the country.

Prepping for a tv segment is nerve wracking and time consuming, but ultimately a lot of fun! (Although I did look a little ridiculous with two suitcases for a one-night hotel stay….)

Here’s a peek inside the studio at what goes on!

The set looks like a small intimate space on TV…but it’s in the middle of a huge studio!

This is a view from a similar angle to what the host and guest see. The lights in your face make it easy to forget you’re in a huge studio since they blind you and you can’t see past them really. Here, Rachel Carlson (left) is working with host Julie McGuffee and producer Kathie Stull to set up one of her segments for the taping.

You can see the segments that Julie and I taped together on the new season of Scrapbook Soup that will start airing in July! (Yes, that’s my iPad on the table…curious to find out what I used it for? Tune in!)

If you missed season 1 of Scrapbook Soup – or want to watch it again, you’re in luck! I have a DVD set of the 13 episodes of season 1 of Scrapbook Soup, hosted by Julie McGuffee and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, to give away to one lucky Scrapbook Update reader!

You can also view Scrapbook Soup episodes on the show’s website, one episode per week! A new episode goes up each Friday!

How To Enter: All you have to do to have a chance to be the lucky winner is leave a comment on this entry before Midnight U.S. west coast time on Sunday night, April 29th. Make sure you include your email address in the line reserved for it on the comment form (for your own protection, don’t put it in the text of the comment, where it will be visible to the public – just in the line labeled “email” in the form where only Scrapbook Update staff can see it). We will need it to notify you if you are a winner. Winners will be drawn by random drawing from all eligible entries. One entry per person. Entries limited to US and Canadian residents only please.

    This is so exciting! I remember Julie from another scrapbooking show that was on a few years back. And now, Nancy will be on too. Can’t wait to see it!

    What rock have I been under that I didn’t know about this? Off to check it out – thanks for the chance!

    • Theresa April 25, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

      Okay, maybe I wasn’t under a rock – it’s not listed on the alphabetical schedule for my station (and I’m in Ohio!). I’ll try back closer to July and see if they add it but in the meantime I can watch online!

  3. Della Domingo April 25, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

    Can’t wait to watch the new show, and to see this episode in particular. Then we’ll know what the iPad was for!! 🙂

    What a great prize. I’ve been frustrated because my local PBS stations have not been airing the new season of Scrapbook Soup. I was trying to catch it online on Saturdays, but ended up need to be away from my computer at the time it was available most of the time. Thanks for a chance to win!

  20. Becks April 25, 2012 at 6:13 pm #

    Wow it sounds really cool! Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Darlene April 25, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    So excited another scrapbook show will be on for me to watch. I cannot get enough of this hobby I am so passionate about, thank you.

  22. Rebecca Lovell April 25, 2012 at 6:19 pm #

    I sure hope I am able to see these! Thank you so much for the chance!!

  23. lynn B April 25, 2012 at 6:27 pm #

    It sounds like this program would be more successful if more scrapbookers knew about it and if it was available on more PBS stations. Right now my local PBS station is not carrying it and I would love to see it.

  24. L Squared April 25, 2012 at 6:31 pm #

    Hadn’t ever heard of the show before, would love to see it. Thanks Nancy!

  25. Judy Webb April 25, 2012 at 6:32 pm #

    Hopefully I can win, as my Public televisions stations don’t carry the show. : <

    Thanks for the web site address!

  27. Sandie April 25, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

    I used to always watch Scrapbook Memories, but Scrapbook Soup isn’t carried in my area. I’d love to see season one!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win these goodies!!

  44. Jan Scholl April 26, 2012 at 2:44 am #

    I have neither cable nor sat dish so I have no idea when this show is on. I have the worst rabbit ears in the universe (or whatever that weird thing is called to pick up signals). I don’t know if my local PBS even carries this because I simply can’t pull in the signal. I may have to thump my hubby to put the crazy thing on the outside of the house instead. Social security doesn’t stretch for tv services these days. Maybe the episodes are online? Either way, you look great! Now send some heat up this way from Florida because Michigan is cold and sucky this week.

  45. Karen Quinn April 26, 2012 at 4:09 am #

    Wow the show doesn’t come on in my part of the country, a DVD set would be awesome!

  46. Ellen ♥ CardMonkey April 26, 2012 at 4:18 am #

    Like most of your other commenters, I too never heard of “Scrapbook Soup” and I’m off to track it down, if not on TV, then online. I do hope it’s on my local PBS, as hubby will be lulled into thinking it’s a “legit” program (only HIS are on PBS … mine are usually only on HSN or QVC, lol). A DVD compendium would be fabby …. if I’m not lucky enough to win, is it available for sale somewhere? Surely a PBS station will offer it as a fundraiser?! Please?

  47. lori I L April 26, 2012 at 5:24 am #

    I would love to see the episodes! I canʻt find it here in Hawaii!

  48. Laura C Michigan April 26, 2012 at 6:38 am #

    I hope something local carries this. I love Julie’s layout from the episode listed today!

  49. Ellen P April 26, 2012 at 6:39 am #

    I would love to win the CD’s. First I have heard of this series, will have to see if I can find out when and on what channel in my area!

  50. Barbara in FLA April 26, 2012 at 6:41 am #

    Love the “Behind the Scenes” shots. I love how the paint only goes so high in the first shot and in the last – same room- you think you’re in someone’s craft room!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!
