I’ve had people think I don’t like crops. It’s so not true!! I love the socialization and fun of being out with other crafters. I won’t lie – I create infinitely better in the comfort of my home, so when I head out it’s totally for social purposes – like tomorrow!
I just got this cute bag from Studio Calico- totally perfect timing, no? I believe in kitting for crops… I’d say more but you’ll have to read the handout. What do I mean? Well I just finished a handout about kits + cropping for Big Picture. Ah but I drift – let’s get back to the subject at hand!
Here’s my bag. Sparse? YES. In my experience the over-packers get less done because all that sorting through wastes time & you can’t possibly make 40 pages in 5 hours. Even adhering photos to paper takes longer than that! So I pack lite. Maybe enough for 10 pages at MOST. I leave stamps & bulky stuff at home mostly – remember you can always add in finishing touches when you get back. Ok, plus I hate cleaning up a ton when I return home.
A tip if you don’t know anyone? Bring a treat to share and then you can chat it up with other scrapbookers while you share something sweet. I’ll know some people tomorrow, but I’m still bringing jelly bellies. Who doesn’t need a treat now and then, and served from a vintage jar makes them that much tastier.
I’ll report back in tomorrow night and let you know how it went!
