We want to make sure everyone has access to these awesome tools! Also, the Creation Station is a self serve area. We in the Crop Crew are more then happy to spend a minute or two with you to quickly give you the basics when we can, but it’s always best to use the links I provided you with above to really learn and enjoy all the features of these AWESOME tools!


Make sure you come check out all the fun we are having in the crop!!



Don’t forget that even when you are not attending a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, you can always join us online.

See you in the crop!!

    Thanks for providing a little info on each machine from the Creation Station. Sometimes people get a little intimidated and it’s nice to have a little knowledge before jumping in.
