Each year I'm getting better at preparing and organizing for scrapbook crops. It's a fun day full of creativity and fills my spirit. It's less than a week away, and for this year's event, I think I've planned pretty well.
Aside from getting time carved out for crafting, what I like most about crops are: socializing, eating, raffles, and purchasing more tools and/or supplies…there's always time to visit the vendors ;-) However, in order for me to enjoy this experience it starts with preparation. A few of the things on my list include:
- Determine pages and/or cards I'll make (ex. birthday, seasonal, etc.)
- Organize all of my tools and supplies I'll need…of course it'll include the basics: adhesives, scissors, trimmer, page kits, and embellishments
- Plan execution (assembly of page or card)
- Don't forget the camera
As you'll notice, the list is handwritten and highlighted. I try to organize it in a way where I can begin to pack it in my craft bag. Since my travels will be a little lengthy, I'm trying to stick with just the one craft bag and one bag of luggage. I don't think that will be much of a problem since I'm focusing on card making this crop...I won't have to carry my cricut and cartridges.
I look forward to crops and spending time with women that have a love for it too. Not only that, we laugh, talk, eat, take pictures, enter raffles, buy more craft supplies and tools all while having a great time. My plans are to share a few pictures of the event coupled with finished results of the cards I made. Stay tuned...
Thanks for reading!
