Thursday, July 27 - Sunday, July 30, 2017
We are excited to offer this extended weekend crop at Paperhugz Paradise in Liverpool, New York. This crop is going to be no-frills to keep the cost down. Seats for this crop will be open to Crafty You Family members ONLY as a presale for 1 week and then I will extend the remaining seats to other local crafters starting May 1, 2017. There will only be 28 tickets sold as that allows for the most comfortable set up, allowing each person their own 6' table!
Tickets will be only $120 for the entire weekend. Get your ticket here! You also have the option to add on the "No Worries" Scrapbook Workshop or a ticket for a non-crafter that is traveling with you that would like to join us Saturday for dinner and the birthday celebration! Please read the details below about all options prior to purchasing your ticket.What is included in your ticket:
- Access to crop Thursday at 9am - Sunday at 5:00pm (doors open at 9am each day and you are welcome to craft as long as you wish Thurs, Fri and Sat). Crop is officially over at 5:00pm on Sunday.
- Price includes dinner and birthday party celebration Sat night as well as beverages throughout the weekend (regular and diet soda, water, coffee and tea). See "other meals" section below.
About the venue: Paperhugz is located in Liverpool, NY directly off the NYS Thruway at exit 37. It is in the secure Lockheed Martin / Electronics Business Park. You will need to buzz in through security upon arrival and will be given a card pass to use for the weekend to make it easy to come and go. It is designed with the crafter in mind. It is well lit and has electricity available at every table. There is a separate break room with a fridge and microwave as well as a K-cup style water cooler. Paperhugz has wifi, 2 Cricut Expressions and may cartridges, a computer and printer (for journaling only), 2 Cuttlebugs, a Big Shot and then other random crafting tools to help lighten your load. I have my CTMH stamps and inks available for your use. I only have a very limited stock of products available for sale during my crops, so plan accordingly. No worries though, if you forget something, we have Michaels, Joann's, Hobby Lobby, AC Moore all within a 10 min drive. We also have Wegmans within 5 mins and Walmart, Target, etc... nearby.
Other Meals: Saturday night food will be provided by Francesca's, which is a great Italian restaurant right in Liverpool. Most people have breakfast before they arrive as it is included in many of the hotels, or people stop at Dunkin Donuts on the way! Those that are local typically eat before they come. The options for lunch are unlimited as we are located very close to many local eateries, including many fast food options. You may want to venture out and experience the famous Heid's of Liverpool... it's the place to be in the summer in Liverpool and has even been on Man vs. Food! I'd be down for a group trip!!! Whatever you choose, the prices around here are very reasonable.
Hotels: I have an agreement with the Best Western, located at the entrance of the business park and technically within walking distance of Paperhugz. They currently can only offer me King Bed rooms for a reduced rate of $85, however if you go online, you can book your own 2 Queen Rooms for about $120+. There are so many hotels within 5-10 minutes, here are just a few:
Best Western Plus - $85 King Bed through Paperhugz or book on your own for Queen Room (currently $127).
Holiday Inn - Exit 37 - $149 currently
Super 8 - $50 and up currently. Very basic budget hotel with good reviews. Includes basic breakfast. Owned by Wyndham.
Knights Inn - $60 and up currently. Very basic budget hotel with good reviews. Includes basic breakfast. Owned by Wyndham.
**I would suggest putting Hotels in Liverpool, NY in google and then look at the options available. You can view the amenities for each on their website as well as reviews of the hotel and if they offer breakfast.
"No Worries" Add On Scrapbook Workshop and Cards - $30: We will use the newest Workshop Your Way kit from CTMH, No Worries, which will be released May 1st. It is the perfect summer theme paper pack. I mean look at the little palm trees... so cute!
I will show you all the different options you have with these amazing kits. You can create them the way they are designed (with three 2 page layouts, with flip pages and greeting cards) or use the additional supplies provided by me to make two additional 2 page layouts and still have some materials left to make some cards. Kits and additional materials and instructions will be included.
Birthday Party Celebration - For those that do not know, although I am sure most of you do, it's George's Birthday weekend... yes that had something to do with the date choice! We will plan a little birthday celebration on Saturday, which will include the dinner from Francesca's and his favorite Wegman's Cannoli Cake! I understand there are others celebrating birthdays around that time, so I will bring icing and names can be added to the cake as needed! Hopefully George doesn't mind sharing his cake with others!
No Frills Crop - this basically means that the main purpose of the crop is stress-free crafting and socializing. I do not have the budget for amazing swag bags and door prizes, however there may be a few surprises here and there.
Please let me know if you have any questions. You can reach out to me via FB message, text message 315-278-8547 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to see you there!
