Class registraton for REGISTERED CROPPERS and CLASS PASS HOLDERS begins Sunday, June 27. Registration for classes will open to the general public later this summer.
If you plan on taking more than one class, and you're not registered for the crop portion of the weekend, we recommend buying a Class Pass. Many popular classes will sell out quickly, and a Class Pass means you can register this weekend, instead of waiting for general registration.
Take some time before you register to plan your weekend schedule. Classes can be viewed by date & time, or by type of class.
All classes are 100% donated -- time, talent & materials -- by retailers and manufacturers. That means 100% of class registration proceeds will go to charity. Classes are non-refundable.
Class instructors come in all shapes and sizes. There are local store owners & teachers, design team members from manufacturers and online retailers, magazine contributors, and creators/designers of major scrapbooking brands.
BC Scrapbooking Crop for Kids is more than a charity fundraiser. We aim to provide an exciting community event and educational experience.

We've got 3 Class seats to give away, and Judy will tell you that the classes she won last year were worth far more than the "price" on the tickets!
I think the classes are going to be EVEN better this year than last year, at least I know that Cherish the Thought's certainly are, and you know how fantabulous they were last year! More Custom Mini Albums, and Card classes chock full of techniques, be still my heart!
So, from now until June 20 every $10 (before taxes) purchase will get you a ballot, spend $20, get 2 ballots and so on. If you're New to Cherish (or haven't made a purchase in 2010), come in before the contest ends and we'll give you an extra ballot with your purchase, and if you're a Cherished Chum, you'll also get an extra ballot with your purchase.

It's running Thursday, April 8 from 12 - 2 and the cost is $25

You'll learn how to blend and shade with the Copics, and get that "professional" look when colouring your images. You'll leave class with enough stamped images and extra paper to create more cards at home! One Copic marker is included in the price of this class. Please bring your own Copic markers (if you have any), as this will help keep the class moving. You will also need a variety of adhesives including Glue Dots, pop dots, and double-sided tape or tabs, and a pair of sharp scissors."
