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!

    I love your behind the scenes pictures of Scrapbook Soup. I will definitely look forward to seeing you on the air (if not sooner, wink!) with Julie. I miss her and Beth’s show that used to air here on Sunday a.m. before church.

    Hi I went to check out the scrapbook soup when I saw it mentioned by you earlier. Even though you taped in Cleveland, it doesn’t look like it is going to be aired here in the Detroitvarea at least according to the site as of now. Thanks for sharing the behind the scenes photos. How fun for you and can’t wait to see you and what you will do with the IPad 😉

    Sounds like a fun series. Will definitely check out the website for time slot info. Thanks for keeping us updated 🙂 and for the DVD op.

  12. Becky E April 26, 2012 at 8:23 am #

    I found Scrapbook Memories (now Scrapbook Soup) on TV a few weeks ago and started DVRing it. It is very inspirational! Thanks for the chance to win Nancy! I’m looking forward to the new season.

  13. Tammy Davis April 26, 2012 at 8:30 am #

  16. Teresa Kaufhold April 26, 2012 at 8:51 am #

    Wow…how great would it be to win this set! I have heard brief mention of Scrapbook Soup, but didn’t know where to watch it! I would love to “catch up”!

  17. Leslie Kiley April 26, 2012 at 8:52 am #

    I am super interested in seeing this show! Somehow I missed them when they aired! Love to have a look! Thanks

  18. Jan April 26, 2012 at 9:04 am #

    I have heard about this show but had no clue where to watch it. Thanks for the chance to win the DVD. I love Julie’s stuff. I read her blog and she seems like such fun. It is really cool to see behind the scenes and you are looking really good, Nancy.

  19. Kathi April 26, 2012 at 9:13 am #

    Wow – I’ve never heard of Scrapbook Soup until your previous post last week. I’ll have to go find it! It would be awesome to win the first season. Thanks, Nancy!

  20. Jann April 26, 2012 at 9:17 am #

    Terrific Opportunity for you to “star” once again, Thanks so much for showing us “behind the scenes” of these awesome shows.

    Alas, PB’s in my area (major metro Phila and NYC!!!!!) did not opt in on getting the series but I will start viewing and saving the ones I get from the link you provided.

    I would absolutely love winning a set of the DVD’s showcasing our hobby.

  21. fran grillo April 26, 2012 at 9:18 am #

    love the chance to win!

  22. Becky Walston April 26, 2012 at 9:19 am #

    I was just investigating Scrapbook Soup yesterday to see if they air in my area (Dallas, TX), but they don’t at this time. It would be great to view all previous shows online. It would be better if you could air in Dallas, TX. Who do I need to bug?

    Thank you for listening to my whinning.

  23. Debra Williams April 26, 2012 at 9:23 am #

    I hope it airs in my area. If it doesn’t will it be available to view online, like some TV shows are. I would love to win the DVD’s. Are they available for sale somewhere, if I don’t win. I need a Plan B on both points. LOL

    • Debra Williams April 26, 2012 at 9:25 am #

      Reread the article and found the answers….guess I was too excited at the prospect. I am delighted and looking forward to it…going to put it on my calendar right now!

  24. LeeAnn from NC April 26, 2012 at 9:24 am #

    I would love to win the CD set since the show doesn’t air in my area. Thanks for sharing your experience with taping the show with us . It’s fun to see how much different it really is from what we see on tv.

  25. Jill Kotsoglou April 26, 2012 at 9:28 am #

    How exciting for you to be a guest on a TV show about Scrapbooking!
    I shall have to check the PBS listing for this show in the future.
    In the meantime I hope I win the DVD set.
    Thanks so much!

  26. Maureen Mathis April 26, 2012 at 9:39 am #

    I’m looking forward to your episodes on Scrapbook Soup, and am so glad that you gave us the link to go back and check out last season. I had never heard of it before, and it’s always great to find out about new shows like this, since TV doesn’t offer as much crafty programming as they used to. So thanks for the info as well as the chance to win!

  27. Nancy April 26, 2012 at 9:43 am #

    Would love to see the DVD’s. This is the first I have heard of this series. Will have to check our PBS schedule for July.

  28. Jenny McGee April 26, 2012 at 9:51 am #

    Never heard of this show. I will have to check out the website and see it. Thanks for a chance to win the DVD collection though.

  35. Hope April 26, 2012 at 10:09 am #

    I love Scrapbook Soup and have re-watched the episodes when they come on my PBS station. Julie and Julie and so creative and the guests they have on really do such fun projects. I can’t wait to see what you will be doing on the show, Nancy!

  36. tammy K April 26, 2012 at 10:27 am #

  37. scrappin2boys April 26, 2012 at 10:51 am #

  38. Gail A April 26, 2012 at 11:22 am #

    I used to watch Scrapbook Memories all the time (even DVR’d it) but haven’t been able to find Scarpbook Soup. Would love to have the DVD’s. Thanks!

  39. DorothyCC April 26, 2012 at 11:30 am #

    I am so excited to see Scrapbook Soup! I loved watching the old scrapbook show on TV and really missed it when it went off the air.

  40. Sandra Duval April 26, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    I missed the first season but will look for the second coming up.

  41. judean April 26, 2012 at 11:39 am #

    I would love to win this! My local PBS station doesn’t seem to carry the show, but I will look for it online and in July 🙂

  42. Carol April 26, 2012 at 11:49 am #

    I have never heard of scrapbook Soup. I would like to know more about it.

  43. Candy April 26, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    This is so wonderful to see you involved with this! Would love to hear the back story on how you ended up on the show! Cannot get the show here and would love the DVDs. So exciting!

  44. Marilyn Nimmo April 26, 2012 at 11:54 am #

  46. Sandy L April 26, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    I’m looking forward to seeing many more episodes of Scrapbook Soup! Thank you for the “behind the scenes” look – it’s got to be more difficult than one would think – doing a segment. Wish my local stations would pick up this series!

  47. Marissa April 26, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    This would be WONDERFUL to win since my PBS doesn’t carry it. Thanks so much for the BTS. You are trying to rival Mario! 😉

  48. Dawn April 26, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

    Would love to win, no airing in my area either. Sounds like a great show!

  49. TinaM April 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm #

    I’d love to win the CD of Scrapbook Soup. St Louis’ PBS station doesn’t air it either.

  50. Tona April 26, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    This show doesn’t air by me so I would love to win the DVD’s. I hoping that they will start to air the series in July.
