Before we proceed, let’s see if we can answer your question so you don’t have to wait for an email reply. Please look over the FAQ’s and see if you can find your question and answer. If your question is not listed, then feel free to email at the link on the bottom of the page.
Do you have Terms and Conditions that tell me about cancellations, When I need to make my payment, etc?
Yes, there are a few ways to find our Terms and Conditions. We have a tab on our Menu above …Terms & Conditions. Second, our registration form has an “I agree to….” box that will have a link to the Terms & Conditions. If you have any questions about our terms, please do not hesitate to contact us prior to registration.
I registered and mailed my check. How do I know if you received it and my table will be assigned?
You will receive a message via email that we have received your check. Your table will be assigned at that time. Simply registering does not guarantee a table. It is important to send your check within 10 days after your registration.
I have purchased a table for an event and now I am unable to attend. May I get a refund?
Our goal is to offer great Scrapbooking events at the lowest possible rates. To do this, we must book our events to capacity and we count on our registered attendees to be there. Therefore, there will be a $35 cancellation fee. There will be no refunds if cancellations occur within 30 days of the event and the full amount will be charged. We do have a wait list available for sold out events. If we are able to place someone in your place, we may waive some or all of the cancellation fee. You can avoid a cancellation fee by finding someone to take your place. You may sell your table to a friend up to 14 days prior to the event. It will be your responsibility to collect your fees that have been paid from your buyer. Please notify us with the buyer’s (attendees) information immediately. Please read our event Terms & Conditions for further information.
Are meals provided?
Please see the Event Details on our website for events that do include food, snacks, etc. If meals are not included for the event you choose, there are many restaurants within a very short distance of our locations. There is also great full serve restaurant at the hotel. (DoubleTree requires drinks to be purchased at their bar….but who’s watching!)
Do you offer Gourmet Food and Deserts?
During our past 13 years of holding Scrapbooking Events, we found there is a very small percentage of scrappers who are interested in the gourmet food & desert gimmick. We all know this would come at a price. Scrappers would be paying for this as part of their tuitions! A Passion For Scrappin’ is all about SCRAPBOOKING and FUN. No gimmicks, no upselling, and no “gourmet” meals & deserts. All of our resources go towards providing our scrappers with the best and latest tools that are free to use while attending our events, Ott Lights & Cutting mats at every table, better and more exciting raffle prizes, and better venues with larger tables, is what we give our guests!
Can I bring my Cricut machine and/or computer?
Yes. We have several Cricut Machines with a complete library of Cartridges available for use at no charge. However, some scrappers like to bring their own machines. Because we provide Ott Lights at every table, we will have limited power available. If you are bringing computers, please have the battery fully charged in case the power near your table is used by others.
Do you have product for sale and do you take credit cards?
Although retailers such as JoAnn’s, Michael’s, etc. have the best selection and prices, as a convenience to our scrapper’s, we do offer a supply of the most essential products at our events. Our prices are based on dealer cost plus 10% that would put them at or better than the retailer’s prices. Unfortunately, because of the high cost and security concerns associated with PayPal, we no longer accept charge cards. Payments can be made by cash or check. Total payment must be made at the time of sale or by the end of the event.
How do I/we register for an event if we have a group that wants to sit together?
Most important: REGISTER EARLY! Please include the names of your group on your reservations to help ensure your group will be seated together. Please ask your group to register within a short time frame of each other so we can do our best to accommodate. Online registrations are recommended for table (group) requests. Email requests cannot be guaranteed.
Do you provide power at the tables?
We do provide power for every table. However, we can not guarantee there will be enough outlets to serve everyone with multiple devises. If you are bringing computers, please have the battery fully charged in case the power near your table is used by others.
Do you provide Cricut Cartridges and machines?
We have a complete library of Cricut Cartridges available free for use. We also have several Cricut machines for your use as well. You are free to use any cartridge you want. However, please be courteous and only take 1 or 2 cartridges at a time. Please return them as soon as you are finished using them so others can have the opportunity to use them as well. Unfortunately, some scrappers forget and leave cartridges on the table so we have to go on “the cartridge hunt” when someone wants to use a particular cartridge! Just consider me the Cricut Cartridge Nazi !
Does the hotel have a bar?
The hotel bar is open evenings and nights. The bar offers great burgers and other food as well. Please feel free to bring a drink in while you are scrapbooking. A few libations may bring out the creativity in you!
Are we required to spend the night at the hotel, and if not, can we leave our materials in the craft room if we go home of the night?
You are not required to stay at the hotel. You are free to come and go. You may leave your items in the craft room. If/when we close the scrap room during the night for a few hours, the doors will be locked and only the Passion For Scrappin’ staff is authorized to open. However, we cannot guarantee the safety of your possessions.
How Do I book My Hotel Room? (IMPORTANT)
The hotel asked us to remind our guests to please make hotel room reservations at least 30 days prior to an event in order to get the room discount, free breakfast, etc. You must use our link provided to make the reservation! If you book via ARP, AAA, etc, you will not be guaranteed a room discount or free breakfast. Please read your own discount plan to find out more. Thank you.
Does the hotel have WIFI?
Yes, Please ask a A Passion For Scrappin’ Hostess. We will have daily codes posted on the tables, per the hotel, for the WIFI codes.
Do the hotel rooms have a refrigerator?
Please check the hotel’s website for guest room information.
Does the hotel have a restaurant?
Hyatt has a limited menu but does have burgers sandwiches, etc. DoubleTree has a very nice full serve restaurant. You can also order food at the bar, pub style.
Does the hotel provide a free breakfast if I stay overnight.
The DoubleTree does offer a free breakfast as long as you book your room through our online link. We have no idea why the hotel has this policy but we have to live with it. They do have a full menu which is an additional charge. Please see hotel’s website for further information.
Can I bring my iPod or other music players?
Yes, however, as a courtesy to fellow scrappers, if you bring a CD player/iphone/ipod, etc, please use ear/head phones when listening to music. If everyone in the scrap room agrees on a station for music, please keep the volume at a reasonable level. Unfortunately, guests in the rooms above the scrap room have a tendency to complain!
Can I Change My Table assigned Once I Arrive?
When our guests arrive for an event, I am occasionally asked if a seating assignment can be changed. I do try and accommodate groups as they sign up however, rearranging at the time of the event is nearly impossible. We have a mix of single scrappers and groups of scrappers. Some groups are even numbered and some are odd numbered. Trying to arrange the tables to accommodate all the requests can be a challenge during the registration process. So, once it is worked out and tables are assigned, it is nearly impossible to make changes the day of the event. If I can suggest, if you have seating requests, please register online early and note any requests during your registration. I do my best to accommodate everyone.
Can I bring a friend who can sit at my table?
Each scrapper pays for their own table. 1 person per table, per event.
I am not registered for the event. Can I stop in and use a machine for a quick project?
Sorry, no. It would not be fair to our paid scrappers. If you have a special project that requires a custom made cut out, for example, please contact Cathy directly and she will make arrangements to help you if she can.
What time can I arrive?
Please plan on arriving any time after the published start time. If you arrive early, the venue may be in the process of setting up our craft room if the room was occupied by a prior event.
Is there a minimum age requirement to attend?
Yes, they must be at least 15 years of age to attend unless otherwise posted with the event info.
I don’t have a babysitter. Can I bring my kids to the event.
As a Nana of 9 grandkids, and a former teacher, I have a special love for kids. However, We have to remember there are other scrappers that are there to scrapbook and attended the event as a “get away” from their own kids to do this. It would not be appropriate to allow kids in the scrap room for that reason.
I tend to be really cold (or hot), can you regulate the scrap room’s air temperature?
Normally, the thermostats in most banquet/conference rooms only regulate temperature slightly. The hotel has a master control. We recommend bringing a light t-shirt up to a sweater or hoodie! The time of year will dictate this as well and if the Heat/AC is set correctly!
I only want to attend and pay for part of an event, is that possible?
Currently, we do not have those options available on our registration form. Please contact us directly, we will work with you on a case by case basis. The easiest way to do this is to partner up with a friend who can only make part of the day as well. Please talk to one of us before making any arrangements like this. Starting in 2018 we may have additional options available that may include a similar option.
I am staying at the hotel. When can I check-in to my room?
Please check hotel’s website. Normally the hotel(s) check-in times are 3PM. Check-out is 3PM. Since our events begin earlier, once the scrap room is open, you may bring you belongings in with you until check in time.
