If you would like to attend SATURDAY ONLY the cost is $59.00. Or if you would like to attend SUNDAY ONLY the cost is $35.00

If you are cropping for one day only, you will be seated in the store.

$10.00 from every sign-up will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

HOST: Debbie Vaccaro

DAY ONE/SATURDAY: Includes a light breakfast, snacks, dinner & dessert. We'll also be doing our Silent Auction all day Saturday and some super fun make-n-takes, plus lots of other exciting goodies. The winning raffle ticket for the contest (see details below) will also be drawn Saturday.


We have a lot of exciting events planned for Saturday. Our silent auction for all our store layouts and samples will be held Saturday only. If you've wanted to own a layout or project that's been displayed in the store over the past year, this is your chance! We'll have different layouts & projects displayed throughout the day Saturday with bid sheets so you can sign up to own one - or more - of your very own! All winning bids are tax deductible.

We'll also draw the winning ticket for the layout contest (see below), raffles and more!


Would you like to be more involved AND possibly win a HUGE basket FULL of amazing items including a FREE ticket to next years National Scrapbook Day at The Island? Then design your best 12x12 layout OR mini book using current products in the store and submit it to our Layout/Mini Book Contest. All layouts & projects will be auctioned off Saturday. Each participant will receive one raffle ticket for each project they submit - submit as many layouts and/or projects as you'd like. Then, one ticket will be drawn at the end of the evening on Saturday! So, show us your best and know that it'll all go to a great cause. No need to sign up ahead of time. When you drop off your layout or project, you'll be handed a raffle ticket. DUE DATE for contest: Friday, Sept. 30. We ask for you to use current product so the winner can make a 2nd page to the layout if they choose.


DAY TWO/SUNDAY: Includes a light breakfast, snacks & beverages plus lots of uninterrupted cropping time! Plus we'll have some surprises for you too!

Sign up soon as space is limited!
