Crop essentials Whats in your Tool kit?

Hi Everyone.  My turn on the blog and this month I wanted to Concentrate on organization. Crop Organization.  I am going to a 3 day retreat at the end of the month.  I get to go to a couple retreats a year.  More if they are local. This one happens to be a 5-6 hr drive away.  But with all the shopping we do along the way it is more like 8 hrs.  I am part of the 50 projects and I am on my 3rd round. So I will be rewarding myself with some scrappy goodies.

For 1 Day Crops I tend to bring my small canvas tool kit with all the basics
ATG tape Runner & refills
12 inch paper trimmer
Cutting Mat &  Utility Knife

Liquid adhesive
Distress Tools

Examples of small storage that is in bag
Washi Tape 
stickles gelatos

This bag is also kept at the bottom of my Fat Max.

For Far away retreats I check to see what supplies will be shared by the organizer sometimes they provide some tools.  It is a good idea to label all your own tools with your name on it.    

My retreat Tool box
To save table space I bring a Fatmax or rolling tool box.
I try to get a spot at the end of the table and open the toolbox up. I pack all my frequently used tools in here.

Here is the top. a Removable tray with chalks, paint brushes, scissors, small tools.
Space under tray holds bulky tools, cropadile,ATG Gun, Stamps.brayer
Divided sections. Inks, blade refills,  Tape refills , glue gun and glue stick, glue, foam pop dots, stickles, gelatos, small containers.
In the bottom I have my small toolbox that holds, paint and other mixed media.  I can also take out and can carry to a scrapbook class if needed. Nonstick mat,  Self healing cutting mat, Score board. 

I don't carry any paper or heavy tools in the fat max.  It can get pretty heavy.  I love that it is durable. I have had mine several years. It wipes clean easily. I also carry heavier bags on the handle when I am rolling in and out of the crops.
