10 Must-Haves for a Crop

10-Must-Haves-for-a-Crop-Photos-Creative-Memories

Have you been invited to a “crop”, or a scrapbooking retreat?

Depending on the length of the event we often times find ourselves wondering what we need to bring with us.  We can so easily get side-tracked and want to take half of our possessions with us.

Take a step back and simplify.  There are only 10 items that you should have.  And, if you are missing one or two don’t panic as I am sure that one of your “crop” neighbors will have just what you are needing.  And “crop” neighbors tend to be some of the nicest “folk” out there.

Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to northern MN to attend a “crop” with Creative Memories Advisors Sherry Bisek and Leslie Hauge.  Their guests helped me-to help you- know what you should bring with you.

Traditionally Non-traditional with Mix & Match

I feel the need to give you a little history of me.  I love to create cards and mini albums but I had a mental block with scrapbooking I could not get rid of.  I wanted to scrapbook the numerous photos I have at home but I always felt like I would do it wrong.  I was afraid of someone pointing out everything that I shouldn’t do on a layout.  Not sure how I broke the mental block but it is gone forever!! I realized the pages I create are for me and my family to enjoy, it’s not like I am publishing them for the world to see…oh wait!  I am!!  I believe my style of scrapbooking is far from traditional but I am always happy with the result.  I hope you enjoy the layout I made of my great nephew Bannon.

Scrapbooking Layouts Using Sorbet Collection

Today, I’m encouraging you to take a closer look at our new Sorbet Scrapbooking Collection.  When I first saw it, I immediately noticed the pinks, purples, yellows and all of the flowers.  But on a closer look, I realized that it really is a versatile collection.  The feminine colors are balanced by shades of orange, blue, green and gray.  It’s obviously going to be fantastic for all types of spring projects and scrapbooking, but the playful artwork of this collection is also going to be great for scrapbooking photos of both my granddaughter and my grandson.
