Crop Packing List

Many of my customers state they are overwhelmed about the idea of attending a crop- when we discuss it I find out that mostly this is because they don't really know how to pack for it.  Many people just grab random paper, photos etc into a bin. Also many of my customers try to pack everything they think they *might* need.  
A little preparation before hand could make attending a crop much less stressful and fun!  
If you are attending with friends-discuss before hand what bigger supplies you would all like to have access too-and split them up so everyone brings one thing.  
I have copied the list below with items I choose to use-there is room to write you own items for anything extra you might need/want.  This is just a suggestion list, based on what I do before a crop. I hope this helps you out!  Leave a comment with items you take to crops that I left off! 

If you have any questions about any of the items on the list-just let me know!  You should be able to download the Crop Packing List with the link below! 


Crop Packing Checklist


Remember, it is important to bring specific projects to a crop- not to pack everything you own and hope you get stuff done-plan it out!  I always bring an extra project pack or two, although I find with socializing I end up not doing as much as I plan.  J
Your items you pack may also vary depending on the length of time of the crop.  The important thing is not get overwhelmed-crops are a time to join together with friends and other scrappers to get some work done but have fun while you do!

Page Kits ( items below in each kit)

   2 Cardstock for bases-typically same color
   1-2 pieces of coordinating color cardstock (can be different colors)
   2-3 coordinating patterned paper
   Project Specific pictures-not all your pictures
   Stamps you want to use on your page
   Coordinating embellishments you may want to use with the papers you choose
   If a Cricut is not going to be available, cut pieces out ahead of time and put in your pack
   I put my page kits in CTMH large 13X13 plastic bags- but the large size ziplock bags or the album protectors can be used-whatever works for you.
