Click here for class descriptions and teachers. Each teacher will have two or three assistants to ensure any student’s questions can be addressed.
AFTER YOU HAVE REGISTERED
I have registered for the event. What happens now?
After you have registered, Eventbrite will generate a confirmation email to you at the time you place your order. We will also send out a confirmation email that includes a few questions to which we require quick responses. Send your responses to Jen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I would like to sit with my friends. How do I arrange that?
We ask that all seating requests be emailed to email@example.com by March 27th and we will place you all together to the best of our ability! We cannot run extension cords to tables. If you need additional lighting, please be sure to bring a battery operated light.

What supplies are provided? What should I bring?
You will be provided almost everything you need to create the projects in the classes. Prior to the event, we will be emailing a suggested list of supplies to bring to the event for use in the classes. The necessary supplies will include a basic scrapbook kit such as a 12” trimmer, adhesive (runner, dimensional), ruler, pencil and detail scissors.

When you register at the event you will be provided with a lanyard with your name on it. Please be sure to wear it at all times when entering/exiting the crop and also when you attend each class. If you have a lanyard from a past event, please feel free to use that one again!
We are excited to have the amazing Two Scrapbook Friends and The PaperCrafter’s Workshop joining us at the event with some incredible deals and fun things planned for you! If there is anything special you wish them to bring, please feel free to contact them to see if that might be possible!
Get ready to have many laughs in our Create & Inspire Photo Booth! If you have not seen the fun pictures from our Crop & Create events, be sure to “like” Crop & Create on Facebook and see the good times we have in there. Be sure to bring your cameras to record all the memories!
As we don’t have a liquor license, we would ask that you not bring any alcohol to either the classrooms or the crop area. The Toronto Hilton Airport Suites has a restaurant and a lounge for dining and drinks. PLEASE NOTE: we are not permitted to bring outside food into the main crop ballroom for liability/insurance reasons. That includes fast food and pizza.
