1st crop

I am going to my 1st crop this weekend, and I am feeling very overwhelmed with what I should be bringing? Do I plan ahead? Or do I try to take everything? Please help!!! Thanks Smile

I'm probably not the best one to ask because I tend to over do it. You should call the person hosting the crop and ask them what they will be providing. Then, make sure you bring basics like a cutter, adhesive, journaling pen, paper, scissors, and any other things that you use on a regular basis. If there will be a cutting machine, bring any supplies that you have for that like a mat, cartridge, or folder. Then make a few page kits that have the photos, paper, embellishments, etc. that you plan to use on a certain layout. Have several different ones because sometimes certain layouts don't come to you immediately and that way you have an alternative to go to while thinking it over. When I go I use my scrapbooking messenger bag and bring my four sided supply caddie. This usually will contain all the items I think I need.

I'm going to my first crop this weekend too. I have no idea what to take! Fortunately our crop is going to take place at a scrapping store, so anything I forgot I can just buy when I get there!

I'm going to take pictures and paper with LOs in mind already. I probably won't do any of my journaling while I'm there. So I'll only be doing partial pages anyhow.
