What we're about
Greetings! We are a very busy group. We meet monthly for 7hr crops and sometimes I'll schedule field trips to craft related events like the Scrapbook Expo, scrapbook stores, antique stores, etc. for an excuse to simply get together. We participate in occasional swaps and in 2018 will have a minimum of four 4-day scrapbook retreats. We love anything papercraft related!
It's best to view our site from a computer rather than a phone so you can see our photos and discussion board where I post information that may interest the group. Simply click on the "Join Us" button to gain access to see what all we do.
We are a community of ladies in Douglas County and surrounding areas with a genuine interest in scrapbooking, card making or papercrafting in general that meet for crops the first Saturday of every month in Parker from 9:30am-4:30pm to work on our projects (child-free). Our members come from all over the surrounding areas, not only Douglas County. We welcome everyone. Since we crop over lunch time, we have potlucks. Bring your own beverage.
Our membership fee is $13.00 a year to help with Meetup costs and our crops are free. The payment button is in the left margin of our site. Sometimes we'll have a 'make and take' mini class at the crop and those are also free. These monthly get-togethers give us an excuse to gather, create, make friends and simply be around others who enjoy the same hobby.
RSVPs close at 8am for our monthly crops so if you can't make it, please change your RSVP by then (if possible) to "not coming". When we have make & takes (sometimes), it's nice to know how many supplies the demonstrator needs to bring for the amount of members attending.
I hope you consider joining our group! If you do, please remember to post a photo of YOU, not a photo of your pet, flower, your children, etc. It's nice to put a face to a name at an event.
Our group is 6.5 years old so we're stable with no plans of fizzling out. I also host SWAPS, occasional all day crops and field trips to craft events and shops. Suggestions are welcomed.
I have a YouTube channel, MissPurplePotato about crafty projects.
You don’t have to live in Douglas County to join! We welcome everyone. Meet others that share the same passion for paper for a fun-filled time of great conversation. My hope is that it will become a wonderful group to share, inspire, and learn something new from each other while working on our projects, free of charge.
There is no selling at our crops nor do I allow using this site to promote businesses like Creative Memories, Stampin Up, Close To My Heart, etc. Unfortunately if I allowed it for one, I'd have to allow it for all and I simply don't want our ladies ever to feel like they need to buy something and to just come to relax and create pressure-free, focusing more on building friendships.
I also post "Field Trips" (like in grade school!) to various craft related shops and/or events around Colorado, "Swaps" (an annual gift tag swap at Christmas time for example) Of course these extra activities are totally optional, depending on your schedule.
A couple times a year we'll have a Swap table set up at our crop where you can bring an unwanted scrapbook items and paper.
Also note that our group's events are for our group only. I do not allow members to use my site to promote their own events. However, if you have something that you think the ladies would enjoy, please contact me to discuss. I am open to new ideas.
We all have one thing in common - we love papercrafting and having a great time! If that sounds like what you are looking for...please join us, we're always open to making a new friend!
