Scrapbooking among friends at crops is one of the many joys of scrapbooking. Aside from all the great cropping that goes on, you get time to catch up with the girls, relax a bit and just get away from the every day chaos of life. To get good scrapbooking done while you’re at a crop, organization is a must. Here are some ideas to help you get organized so you can make the most of your next crop.

Invest in organizing solutions made just for cropping away from home.

If you’re a “take-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” cropper … why not transport your gear in style? Look for bags designed just for scrapbookers and all your essential supplies.

Get organized before you go.

That’s right. A little proactive planning can go a long way to improve your productivity and fun at your crops. Page planners, such as croppin’ folders by croppin’ companion are a handy little tool for the organized cropper. Just load them up with all the pictures, card-stock and embellishments you need for a page — and you’ve got a tidy, portable cropping essential. Give ’em a try!

Tidy as you go.

At any crop I’ve ever been to, elbow space has been at a premium. Keep your corner of the cropping universe tidy by taking along a small bin or bucket to corral your paper scraps as you go. Also, take a few minutes between projects to tuck away your supplies, before starting your next project.
