Packing for a Crop

Recently got back from a crop, so I thought I would do a quick video about efficiently packing for a crop. We have all our items organized in our craft rooms, but what works best for traveling? Here’s what I’ve learned over 10 years of scrapbooking trips!

Scrapbooking Crop

Someone recently asked, what is a crop? Good question!

If you’re unfamiliar with going to a crop, it’s a group of crafters getting together to stamp and scrapbook together. It can be held at a church, hall, or hotel. Many of us go to places that are bed & breakfasts that cater specifically to crafters. See my list of places to go near Ohio!
