Packing for a Crop

I am early this year ;)
I usually don't pack for a crop until the night before.
But look at me!!!!!
Today is Thursday and the crop is Saturday morning.
Maybe I'm not a procrastinator after all….okay I am.

I made 7 page kits, double page layouts kits.
7 page kits, but I have way more paper in each kit that I could probably double, or triple this number.
Not all of them are complete…honestly, none of them are complete.
I know the photos I want to use (I have to get those developed tomorrow), so I picked the pattern papers and coordinating card stock.
If I had chipboard pieces or stickers that went with my papers or pages, I then added them in the bag with the papers.
As for letters or other embellishments, I haven't got to those yet.
Plus I keep most of my embellishments in some sort of portable containers, so I may just bring the whole container with me and decide on those when the time comes.

I am trying to be more organized on what I take to a crop.
I usually take so many supplies and I don't even use half of them, I am sure I am not alone ;)
I want to perfect my packing process and which supplies I need to take with me… that even possible?
I have made a list on what I, think, I will need. I will share that with you all tomorrow.

I hope you all had a Creative Thursday :)

Tracy :)

  5. sounds like you are well on your way to being organized. Have fun on Saturday.

  6. See, you can be organised LOL! A list is always a good start, and if it works for you - keep it for next time :-) Have a great weekend.

  7. Have fun at your crop, it's always nice to get together with friends.

  8. Yay for getting to the packing early. Yay for making up page kits. I think embellies are the hardest to decide on as well, but I see you have a stack of trusty post-it notes, so you can always make notes about what finishing touches to add at home. Enjoy.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
