Some great classes JUST GOT BETTER!

We were recently informed by instructor Lydia that our generous sponsor Core'Dinations is donating even more to her classes! Each student in the Good Times Mini Album and the Sweet Treats Layout Class will receive dust buddies, sanding block and technique videos from Core'dinations.

Good Times Mini Album

Sweet Treats Layout Class

These are just two of the 27 classes offered over the weekend of Sept 30-Oct 2, and since all the products, time and talent have been donated, ALL class proceeds go directly to charity! Class registration is moving along at a steady pace. We have one class SOLD OUT already, and several are down to single digits. Avoid disappointment by registering today!

Class registration is open to the public. You do not need to be an attendee of the weekend crop in order to take classes.

6 More Sleeps!!

That's right people, only six more sleeps to go until registration!!

Last year our theme for Saturday night was Glam, all about the Scrap Diva in all of us. We can't wait to tell you what it will be this year!  But, you'll have to wait just a little bit longer to find out.

Mary and Sandra have been working really hard to finalize the class schedule, and we plan on posting the class descriptions hopefully by the end of May.  I can tell you however that they are going to be awesome.
Class Passes will be available again if your preference is to only take classes rather than crop.  The great thing about attending the crop, besides having a wonderful time socializing, meeting new friends and getting to indulge in some serious scrapping "me" time is the option to finish off any of the projects that you didn't have time to complete in a class.  Sometimes it can be a bit of rush to get everything done.  Our fantastic teachers really want to make sure each and every class is well worth it.  So sometimes the project can exceed the allotted class time, or even not be meant to be completed within the class.  What better place to finish your project than while hanging out with your scrapping buddies!

Good News! We have also increased the number of seats available while making some changes to the crop room!

This is so exciting!  6 more sleeps....

Happy Scrapping!

Only 7 more sleeps!!!

Wow has this year just taken off at lightening speed or what?  Everyone that I talk with tells me the same thing.. we are all on super speedy mode and time is just flying by!

Well.... that means it's only 7 more sleeps until registration opens for this years Crop For Kids.

Did you know that last year the event sold out in about 15 minutes!  I remember very clearly, sitting at Mary's dining room table with Sandra on the speaker phone as we counted out how fast the seats were going.  It was epic.

This year I have no doubt it will sell out again in record time, and with good cause.  It's going to be a fantastic weekend - the classes this year will be awesome.  Layouts, cards, mini albums... but seriously, who doesn't love a good crop too.

How about a weekend away with your girlfriends, getting all those projects done you've been trying to get finished?  Maybe some door prizes, some shopping, add in a little silent auction action - and it's a winning weekend all around!  The best part though above all else is that it's an amazing fundraiser for Children's Hospital.  Do it for the kids!

So remember to mark your calendar!  Next Sunday (yes on Mother's Day) 9am be prepared.  Later in the week I'll be posting some finger exercises to make sure those digits are in top shape to register quickly.
Through the week I'll be featuring a little bit on our sponsors and helping you get to know them a little better.

Have a great start to the week everyone... and don't forget to vote tomorrow!

Happy Scrapping!

Sponsor Spotlight! - The Paper Nation

The Paper Nation we are excited to say is now one of the sponsors for BC Crop for Kids!  Yah! Have you had a chance to go and check out this beautiful little store in historic downtown Abbotsford?

Brian opened his store in 2010, and it's just getting better and better!  They feature not only scrapbooking products but also stationary, cheeky cards, gift packaging as well as classes and other in-store events!

Check them out here:

Are you a card maker? Have you tried the technique of  glitter and peel of stickers?  No - then have a look at some beautiful card classes they have coming up.  Don't forget, this technique could easily be transferred over to create very cool embellishments for a layout as well.

Are you in the area looking for a Friday Night Crop?  They also have Friday Night Crops going on.  Check out what they have going on under their classes and events section of their website.

We love our sponsors and are thrilled to have them be a part of what makes BC Crop for Kids so much fun!

Thanks Brian - we'll see you soon!

Happy Scrapping!

Say Cheese!

We're so excited to start our 2011 BC Scrapbooking Crop for Kids season.  We're planning all kinds of cool events from satellite crops to in store events at your local scrapbook store,  as well as a very special event which we will soon start sharing some details.  Watch for the blog to be updated often with what's going on in our local scrappy community featuring our 2011 sponsors.  We'll have challenges, inspiration and even a blog hop!

So let's get this party started. It's time to kick off with our first challenge! 

It was a fabulous event last fall, and we want you to email us a photo of yourself at the event, or go crazy and send us a link to a layout you have created with a Crop for Kids theme.  We will randomly select a winner at the end of the month to win a prize! Deadline to enter is February 21, 2011.
So why not join in the fun, become a follower and make sure you do not miss out on all the upcoming scoops.

Can't wait to see those photos and layouts!  Send them in, and we will add them to our photo album which will be coming soon.

Happy Scrapping!
