Scraptacular Event Info 2014 Events

We are so excited to announce our FIRST of four (or more!) Girlfriends Weekend Mini Crop Retreat ScraptacularEvents! All of our G/F W/E Crops for 2014 and 2015 will be held at Centenary United Methodist Church located at 5280 Hampton Road Clemmons NC 27012 (only 2 minutes from our store!) and will allow us once again to comfortably accommodate 65 croppers per event with separate “Make-n-Take Rooms”and “Private Classrooms” for all the amazing classes we will offer as an option at each event!

We will have “Valet Parking” available and lots of “Muscle” to unload and load all your croppin’ supplies to the huge 4000 square foot crop room! For those who may have difficulty with stairs, there is an elevator to move you from one floor to another…a definite PLUS for us all! :O)

We will provide two meals, drinks & snacks throughout the weekend with a“Pizza Party” with salad bar Friday night and a delicious hot lunch on Saturday. Other meals are on your own and several places will deliver to the church as well.

Check-In time begins at 3pm Friday afternoon January 17th. We will crop until 11pm Friday night…Crop hours for Saturday are 9am-10pm January 18th, and at this time we are waiting on confirmation of our available crop time Sunday January 19th.!  Sunday Crop hours will be to 1pm-8pm. THAT’S TWENTY EIGHT HOURS OF CROPPIN’ GIRLFRIEND FUN! WOOHOO!!!

Each participant will receive a loaded “Goodie Bag” upon check in and an entry into the AWESOME FANTASTIC DOOR PRIZE DRAWING BOWL! We will draw a FABULOUS DOOR PRIZE EVERY EVENING 30 MINUTES PRIOR TO THE END OF THE CROP! You do not have to be present to win…we will just “require” that you allow us to photograph you the next day as you receive your PRIZE for our web site and Face Book page! Each cropper will get an entry into the DRAWING BOWL each day…TWO for Friday, one for Saturday and one for Sunday…they will accumulate all weekend!  One prize per cropper should the same name be drawn twice! You will receive another entry each time you shop the store throughout the weekend… bring snacks/goodies to share and receive another entry (Limit one per cropper)…bring 5 cans of food for the homeless and get another entry (limit one per cropper), sign up for one of the offered classes and receive anotherDOOR PRIZE ENTRY, participate in our fun crazySCRAPWALK GAMES, SCRAP-HOLE GAMES, and other fun events and yep! You got it!! Another entry as well as the prizes offered for each game! Friday night at 8pm, we will have (for any who wish to participate!!) our gal pals slip into their “jammies” and enter the “PJ PARTY CONTEST”! This will earn each lady another entry for GRAND DOOR PRIZES and a PRIZE for our winner as well! We will vote on most creative fun funky (LOL) jammies at 10pm Friday night!

During the crop, we will offer a “Shuttle Service” to and from our store should you not wish to drive your own vehicle…and will take “orders” from those who don’t want to leave during the crop and deliver the products back to you each “Shuttle Run”! :O)

ALL WEEKEND SALES AND SPECIALS WILL BE POSTED FOR YOU AT CHECK IN ON FRIDAY with a copy provided for you in your “Welcome Goodie Bag” so you do not miss a single “DEAL”!


Tools will be provided for your use throughout the weekend and you are welcome to bring baggies to “Punch-A-Bunch” with your scraps for later use on different projects! You have free use of the die cut center, punch center, tool center and our fabulous friendly helpful certified and trained staff will be on hand to help you with ideas or stubborn pages! You may set up and leave your belongings for the weekend. Included in the tools will be over 500 craft shape punches, border punch systems, deco corner punches, circle and oval cutters, shape cutters, templates, tearing rulers, deco scissors, Crop-O-Diles, Die Cut Center with Ellison, Accu-Cut, Sizzix, & QuicKutz dies, Corner Chompers, and more!

 You may bring cushions or pillows for your chairs if you wish. We have room for 80 croppers but limit the events to 65 to allow for plenty of space! We seat according to your requested seatmates. Typically there are 2 to 3 scrappers to a 4×8 or 8ft round table or 4 if requested as a group. We provide CriCut areas/tables for all machines to prevent table crowding and extension cord trip hazards. We ask that you bring ONE CRI-CUT unit and extension cord per group! Most ladies are more than willing to share their cartridges with you…please ask each owner before using their equipment.


We will of course be designing and creating our exclusive “famous” (LOL) customlasers and papers for any who need them for any event or occasion! This will be done at the store and delivered back to you in a timely fashion…too much equipment to haul with us!

Throughout the weekend, we will run a “daily crop tally” for each cropper and close it out at the end of each day starting a “FRESH SHEET” each day!  We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, Debit, and CASH for your purchases.


We have a full kitchen available for our use throughout the weekend.

We always have something “up our sleeve” such as scavenger hunts, Scrap Dance Breaks, Nosey Neighbor contests, Musical Scrap Walks, our now famousSCRAP-HOLE GAME & more! You never know WHAT we are gonna do from one event to the next!! Upon registration, you must pre-pay to hold your spot. Every event we have held at the church in the past has been a SOLD OUT event and gals on our waiting list… so don’t put off making your reservation!

 We accept MC, Visa, and /Discover should you wish to reserve over the phone. All event sales are final. No event refunds. Should you be unable to attend the event and give at least 48 hours notice, we will attempt to sell your spot. If we are able to sell your seat, you will be offered a roll over to the next event or astore credit. Should we not be able to sell your seat, we cannot offer credit or roll-over. Please be aware that “Single” cancellations sometimes remain “open” as most ladies want their scrappin’ gal pals with them! Unfortunately, there are times we simply cannot accommodate more than one cropper. We will make EVERY EFFORT to sell your seat should cancellation occur but cannot offer any guaranteethat we can do so! No show/No calls forfeit all.

Some of our ladies wish to purchase an entire table to themselves to be able to really spread out for the weekend! Should you desire a “TABLE FOR ONE” cost of the event is $87.50 and we only have the ability to offer 4 of these spaces at each event. The January event has 3 “Table for One” spaces left!

We have had many requests for “Private” Girlfriends Weekend Mini Scraptacular Crop Event and YES, we can do that!!! We are more than happy to schedule a PRIVATE event when it best suits YOUR scrappin’ friend’s schedules! Email or call us for further details!
