I plan to be there all three days. I usually volunteer, in the past this would give me a class. Plan to register this week. The deadline is the 18th. I live in Philly, not far from fishtown. I commute back and forth each day. Keeps costs lower.

I used to volunteer as well- and work for some vendors on the side that would pay in product. The benefits for CKC volunteering have really been lacking the last few years and it is really not worth it at all. (IMO) Nothing is free anymore with a shift. You only get %-off coupons so it is almost like you HAVE to spend money anyway just to use the coupon. If you're not interested in a book or T-shirt - why bother? They do give %50 off of 1 class but they used to be free.

Just home from CKC. Heard that this will be the last year for Valley Forge, they're putting in a casino. Convention will be moving to Lancaster,

Yes I will be traveling too. This is one of the only things I look forward too. I don't drive, which means a slight problem, but fixable. Going to Lancaster means staying there. Instead of commuting like I do to Valley Forge. But I 'm starting to plan now at least finances.

TESTIMONIALSYes, the best crop event I have attended in 9 years. Where can you get 8' of scrapping space but at the Scrappetizer. Love the staff. -- Sandy, NY

This crop was well organized and tons of fun! I had plenty of room for all my stuff and great vendors to fill in any missing bling. Can't wait for the next one! --- Vivian, PA

Scrappetizer Weekends are the best! Everyone is helpful and super friendly. The staff and vendors understand what is important to us croppers and do their best to provide it. -- Zandria, NY

Brand new to Scrapbook.com and am looking for people to scrapbook with. I host monthly clubs at my home (no commitment and varied cost depending on the kits) and am looking for people to just come and do FREE crops with me. I am located in Southern Lancaster County. You can contact me at alwaysdeeper@hotmail.com or find my blog at www.ejoym.blogspot.com

I'm ok with the CKC move to Lancaster, but not ok that the rooms were completely sold out well before registration even started. A friend and I have been going to CKC in VF since it began and can't count how much $ we have spent there. We both registered again and can't find a room! Our classes go well into the evening so driving back and forth each day isn't an option. Too bad I'm not back in college, - I could just go to my dorm in nearby Millersville....

It was great to see you in the snow storm! I reserved a room as soon as they announced the price for them.... I think it was in January, Sounds like they did not reserve enough rooms. They said that they were going to try to get more rooms but they haven't posted anything more about it.... Seems like there would be a lot of hotels in the area. This is the first time that I reserved a room on site.

Hi Cindy - Welcome!

Update on the CKC Lancaster room - on a whim, I used my AAA card and tried to reserve a room online. It worked! Now, granted, the room rate is ridiculous (way over the group rate) but I feel much better knowing I'll have a place onsite.

Hi - new to this site, but went to the expo last year and enjoyed it- will be going again this year- probably not to the crop for both days, but will definitely do the crop and shopping on saturday- they had a great vendor last year where all of the bling was a dollar a pack..are you going to go?

I am going... not too many vendors listed so far.... I understand that the vendors did not do too well last year but I am hoping that more vendors sign up....

I will be going also, on Friday the 12th for the shopping only and I can't wait! I never participate in the classes- to much to do on the vendor floor
I'll also be attending the CKC Scrapbook Convention in July. I've been attending that one for five years now...
