Crop Parties

Thursday, June 12 Friday, June 13 Saturday, June 14
6:00 PM – Midnight 6:00 PM – Midnight 5:00 PM – 11:00 PM

Bring your photos and supplies and get ready to crop until you drop at one of GASC’s ever-popular crop parties! You’ll get that rare chance to work on your layouts, spend quality time with your friends, and even win prizes! Contests and door prizes are a hit at every crop party.

Ticket Options:

Crop Party Ticket · $15 online; $17.00 at the door
An individual crop party ticket guarantees you a seat at a table and space to relax and try out some of the new products and techniques you’ve gathered during the day. It’s a perfect chance to meet folks who share your love of paper crafts!

Crop Party Table Reservation · $85.00 online; $95.00 at the door
When the doors open for the crop party, seating is first come, first served. But you and up to four other friends can reserve a table to make sure you get to sit together. No stress or rushing to stake a claim! Hurry—only a limited number of table reservations will be accepted.

(Note: A crop party table reservation is a guarantee that you will have a table to seat 5 people. If you purchase a crop party table reservation, you will receive 5 wristbands with your convention packet to distribute to 5 individuals you would like seated at your table. The table will be reserved under the name of the person who purchased the table. You do not need to purchase a crop party table in order to sit with other croppers, but please note that seating is on a first-come, first-basis when doors open for the cropping party.)

Shop ‘n Crop: Your All-Day Cropping Area · $25.00 online; $27.00 at the door
You need a place to get down and dirty with all your new scrapbooking supplies and ideas during the day, and we’ve got a designated spot to do just that. Your Shop ‘n Crop Ticket includes a general admission ticket to the shopping floor AND admission to the dedicated cropping area only available to Shop ‘n Crop ticket holders.

The cropping area will be open in the convention center during shopping hours:

  • Thursday, June 12 • 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM
    • Special Preview Hour 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM (Additional fee required)
  • Friday, June 13 • 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM
  • Saturday, June 14 • 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

You’ll get in-and-out privileges for this room, so you can shop, attend workshops and come back to work on your projects in between. And if you choose to stay for a crop party, you won’t have to gather up your belongings and go stand in line—you’ll get to stay right where you are!

(Note: Evening Crop parties are not included in the Shop ‘n Crop ticket—you must buy your evening crop party ticket separately. Crop at your own risk. GASC and the Arlington Convention Center are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Cropping or crafting of any type is not permitted in public spaces at the Great American Scrapbook Convention. This policy ensures the safety of our visitors as well as their ability to access food and rest spaces.)
