What to pack for a Scrapbooking Crop…and a video

Now doesn't it look like I am having loads of fun?
Well, I am :)
I am trying to perfect my packing for when I go to a crop.
I want to minimize what I bring while still being productive when I get there.
I think I may have come close to doing just that.

Every time I go to a crop, I prepare by making a list.
I love lists :)
This time I critiqued my list many times and wrote it down on my iPad, so I would always have a copy.
I am going to print this out and put it in my planner so I have it for every crop and I don't have to make a new list.

With list in hand, I used a big table to put my supplies out on.
As I pulled out the supplies, I checked them off my list.
Once I had everything I needed out and on the table, I then packed it in my containers neatly and organized so I would be able to find it easily when I needed to use it.

I made a video of what and how I packed up my supplies.
Luna made a few appearances in my video….such a little Diva, lol.

Now onto the my tooth adventure.
I woke up this morning and my one side of my face looked like a chipmunk storing the its food for the winter.
At first I was too lazy to get up and check, but when I finally did, I was a bit surprised.
Phoned the dentist. They were surprised as well, as I am still on antibiotics.
Judy (the receptionist) got me in at the end of the day.
My dentist completed my root canal and put me on 2 differing antibiotics.
So hopefully this will take care of the infection, if not, I guess I'm getting the tooth pulled.
I hope that doesn't happen….lots of work went into this sucker ;)

I hope you all had a very Creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Tracy, is there a place where you have explained how you made your own distress ink applicators? Thanks again for sharing and the list...hugs...Bobbie

    1. Yes Bobbie, I have a video on how I made these and also a blog post.

  2. Very complete list! Ouch!! Hope your tooth is doing better. I'd be taking some Motrin too!

  3. I was okay with the page kits, but an actual packing list - now you're just showing off! ;-)

  4. Looks so fun. I haven't done something like this in years. Friends into this kind of thing are all either way too busy now or have moved away. Hope your tooth gets better.

  5. Great list, Tracy! I've never been to a crop and wouldn't even know where to begin with packing! :)

  6. Thanks for the list, I think I could tweek it for a card making crop. Although I have never been to one. Great video. I hope the meds work for your tooth.

  7. That was a great idea to print that list out so you have it every time!!

  8. You are super organized! Good idea to hang onto that list electronically. I hope your tooth gets straightened out soon. That is no fun.

  9. Looks like you are having fun!! I haven't been to a crop for a few years now, but packing and deciding what to take was by far my least favorite thing to do! :/ Your list sounds like a great way to stay organized, take what you need and leave the rest at home! Hope your tooth is feeling better. :)

  10. I feel completely at a loss when it comes to deciding waht to take when I want to go somewhere but take some craft supplies with. I often go and stay for weeks at a time at my boyfriend's place. I can never decide what I want to take and wind up packing my car trunk full of crafting supplies and only taking a small bag of clothes and other sundries. Your list looks comprehensive - do you mind if I borrow it to pack the next time I go on a trip?

  11. Great video and so glad you had your tooth done ! Great list and now you know it works :-)


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