The Church advised me this afternoon that we cannot use the Hall during the summer months because they have rented it out to the YMCA for an Adventure Camp. Fortunately they are not bumping us this week so I'll see the 14 of you on Friday who previously RSVP'd. The July crop night is cancelled unless someone has a lead on another location. August is already scheduled for Hearts-n-Crafts so we're OK on that front. I've left a message with my contact at the Church asking if the second Friday in September is still considered "summer" or if we'll be back on schedule. I'll keep you posted when I hear back.
If you find yourself dreaming of sketches for your next layout, dressing your family in clothes that match your favorite paper stash, and wake up at your desk with a tape runner stuck to your face, you just might be a scrapbooker. If you can identify with any of these symptoms, then you may have SSS (Severe Scrappers Syndrome). This is a common condition. Do not be alarmed. There is no need to feel guilty. Join CV Scrapbookers for a monthly 10-step program meeting and group support.
Do you love to scrapbook? It doesn't matter if you are new to the craft or a seasoned scrapper, you are invited to join our group for monthly crops, lots of laughs, and good times. We are an equal opportunity crafting group because we not only embrace scrapbookers, we also have card-makers in our group.
We typically meet the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Crescenta Valley Methodist Church in Montrose. The date may change based upon room availability, so it's always best to check the site and always RSVP. Bring your totes filled with with pictures and projects, cards and stamps and join us for our monthly get-togethers.
Annual membership dues of $25 are assessed on October 1 of each year. You must be a member in good standing to remain a part of this meet-up group. Dues help offset the cost of website maintenance fees charged by Meet-up.com ($154 per year) and the liability insurance we are required to carry in order to meet at our venue. Members may bring a one-time only guest to a crop. After that visit, the guest may choose to join by becoming a dues-paying member, but the guest cannot attend a second time without contributing -- via dues -- to the support of the meet-up. Please contact the organizer if you wish to bring a guest to the meet-up.
Occasionally we will hold our monthly crop at a scrapbook store, which does involve traveling. Please be sure to check the site for the locations. Notice of a venue change is always listed several months in advance. Crops at scrapbook store venues typically involve a charge for both room rental and catering, so these events may require additional fees. Be sure to check the meeting location each month so you'll know where to find us.
First established in January of 2010, we are a group of scrapbooking and cardmaking junkies of varying ages and backgrounds who meet monthly to scrapbook our memories, share our tools and supplies, and laugh! We love kids but respectfully request that you leave the little ones at home. Crafters over the age of 15 are welcome to become official, dues-paying members of Crescenta Valley Scrapbookers.
Please -- no requests to join from folks trolling this site with intentions other than scrapbooking.
