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!
