Scrap Dat is a fun and roomy scrapbooking retreat or scrapbooking and crafting event in the Mandeville, Covington and Greater New Orleans area. Ladies (and guys) have come from all over the Gulf south (Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia New York, Colorado and California, too!)  to scrapbook, crop, craft, paint, quilt, sew, make paper crafts, create, learn, eat, laugh and have a great time. Some people come in groups of friends while some come alone but become friends with someone new before they leave!

Our vendors were wonderful and offer great product and services as well as fabulous classes. You will find scrapbooking supplies and some crafting supplies that you may run out of, kits, new items to the market and some things you just can’t live without. Scrap Dat tries to offer more crafting in addition to scrapbooking. Check out our class offerings and plan on what you will sign up to do while at Scrap Dat.

Thank you to all who have come, cropped and helped make our events so successful in the past. We hope you return and bring more friends.

We do not serve meals but have local restaurants that you can order from in your registration or go to when you need a break. Scrap Dat offers beverages, coffee and snacks throughout the day as well.

If you are interested in extra table space, you can add it to your registration.

So come to see what this scrapbooking and crafting event is like. We think you’ll enjoy it and mark it on your calendar for the next time.

Thank you to Louisiana Media Group for filming and providing the video.


In May 2014, our first crop, Scrap Dat, was held in Mandeville, LA at the Castine Center. It was a great success. We determined there that we must have another crop in the fall.
