I love crops! With two little ones, it’s not easy for me to get a lot of scrapping done here at home. So going to a crop is a dose of much needed focussed scrapbooking time, company, supplies, and fun.

You’re lucky because there are a few that are upcoming. And you can’t beat the deals.

First off, every Tuesday morning, there’s a free crop. I pop into the store on Tuesdays from time to time, and let me tell you, those girls are having fun. Some of the regulars even bring snacks! Yum!

Then on Friday 8/14 and Saturday 8/15, there’s a back to back crop.
Friday, August 14 5 pm – 11 pm $12
Saturday, August 15 10 am – 10 pm $20
or come both days for $25 (if you do both days, you can leave your stuff at the store on Fri night)

And then the most fun one that coming up is Crop-cation
Friday, 9/4 thru Monday, 9/7. 
A total of 36 cropping hours over those 4 days for only $50.
You come and go as you please. Your spot is reserver all 4 days so you can leave your project and supplies there the whole time.  I highly recommend this one!

So sign up now because spots won’t last.

How to prepare for a crop:

Prior to going to your crop, begin looking at what supplies you’re using most frequently so you can make mental notes of what to bring to a crop (specific inks, tools, embellishments, etc — your staples; your go to items). Most people recommend semi-planning out your layouts ahead of time. I know many of our girls will group patterned papers, coordinating cardstock, and embellishments with their photos into a separate bag so that all they need to do is pull out that “kit” and begin work.

If you’ve never been to a crop, don’t be intimidated. Everyone is super nice and helpful. If you need anything from a supply to advice on a layout, there’s plenty of people to help you out.

Hope to see you there!

Great info on how to prep for a crop, Krista. I’m definitely a “kit” maker –I choose photos, then pull patterned papers and embellies that will go with and put everything into a big 2-gal ziploc. (I usually don’t bring cardstock to a crop –prefer to buy that at the store and help keep my bags a bit skinnier and lighter). Love your post!
