How do I prepare for the retreat?

  • In order to maximize your cropping time, I suggest having your album project goals in mind. For instance, plan and prepare the specific pages/photos you will be working on by having the photos organized and ready to scrapbook along with the supplies needed to put together these pages.

  • At the retreat, the combined creativity of you and the other croppers near you will generate fabulous ideas for your layouts. When you are really stuck, there will be a whole room full of very qualified people to offer suggestions.

  • Bring only what you need. Take advantage of the tools provided.


Is it safe to leave my supplies overnight?

  • Your workspace is yours for the weekend. We will be the only people on site for the weekend. I trust all the croppers attending the retreat and I do everything in my power to make sure things are secure.

  • The house will be locked in the evening.

  • Amy / Cropportunities2 cannot be held responsible for your belongings.


What should I bring?

  • Bring as much of your own cropping supplies and equipment as you feel like hauling. For a more enjoyable experience, don’t over load.

  • Comfy clothes. Bring along a sweater or sweatshirt. Don’t forget your PJs and comfy slippers. Dress in layers, the house has boiler heat, so it takes a bit of time to heat up and cool down. It should remain pretty constant, but what is comfortable for one may be too hot or cold for another.

  • Camera (to take pictures of your new friends and remember all the fun you had).

  • Cash, credit or checkbook– Scrapbook products will be available for purchase throughout the weekend. I can accept all major credit cards.

  • Snacks and Beverages of your Choice. Refrigerator is available for you to store your snacks and beverages.

  • Album covers to be embossed.

  • Above all, bring a great attitude.
