Crop and Create Delivered - a Review

Updated: Apr 9, 2023

Last weekend I took part in the biannual Crop and Create Delivered put on by Scrapbook and cards Magazine. It was so much fun and well worth the $290. Price tag. It came out to $20 per class and there was definitely more than $20 in stamps and dies in all the kits. The Simon Hurley kit was the biggest and had about $100. in it. The box, with all the kits, weighted 12 pounds. It was full of stamps, dies and all the paper I would need for the weekend. All the kits were all very different and not all butterflies and flowers. There were some flowers of course but it wasn’t flower after flower.

This was the first online event I had taken part in and wasn’t really sure what to expect. Besides the weekend being all card making, I knew nothing else about what to expect. It turned out to be 4-day cardmaking marathon. There were 15 -90-minute classes, 2 mini classes and a grand finale 1-hour long video by Jennifer McGuire. I ended up with 48 different finished cards, a couple of technique panels and an extra card I made with one of the kits.

Some of the companies who took part I had purchased from before and knew what they had to offer. On the other hand, some were companies I had heard of but had never bought their products so it was a great time to sample what they have to sell and be able to ask questions to boot.

Gina K and the Catherine, the magazine owner hosted the weekend and had daily prizes. There was a lot of chatting during and after the classes. Cathy Zielske even sang a song on Sunday morning. That class was fun. There were a lot of different techniques used through out the weekend. Everything from lunar paste to foam and inking embossing folders and stenciling was done at some point during the weekend.

Scrapbook and cards magazine does put on other events as well. There are papercraft events that are more scrapbook and memory album type of projects. Finally, there is a Christmas project event that is a combo of paper crafting and cardmaking.

So, after looking back at my pile of cards I will definitely be registering for the fall weekend in late September/ early October. I will probably register for the Christmas one too.
