Greetings! We are a very busy group. We meet monthly for crops with free demos, occasional all day crops, go on field trips, participate in swaps, 4 day retreats, and 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 sometimes I'll post a video.
When you click on the "join us" button you'll have access to our "photos" board, filled with photos of different things we've done in the past, projects, field trips we've taken, etc. That will really give you an idea of what we're all about. You'll also have access to our "discussion board" where we all can post whatever is scrapbooking/card making related that you think the group might be interested in.
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). Since we crop over lunch time, we sign up to bring something for a potluck. Bring your own beverage.
Our membership fee is $13.00 a year to help with Meetup costs and our crops are free.
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". Often times we have quick 10-minute demos or make & takes so it's nice to know how many supplies the demonstrator needs to bring for the amount of members attending.
Ihope 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 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 post videos of our retreats and swaps on YOUTUBE; just search MissPurplePotato on YouTube to view them if interested and it will give you an idea of the many projects our group works on as well as the fun we have on our weekend retreats to create!
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) at least two Weekend Retreats a year to get away and create. These little extras spice things up a bit and are a fun way to hang out with each other. 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 item and trade it for something else on the table. At times we'll have a crop with a twist such as our "Boss You Around" crops or "Punch You Out" crops. Click on our Photos button to see what those are all about.....
Join our Scrapbook Meetup Group where we share our talents, creative ideas and learn new techniques from each other. We enjoy seeing what other members are working on, while making new friends. It is an atmosphere that we all look forward to each month.
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!
