Are you a new reader?

No! I started in the Paper Crafting Industry as a Scrapbooker. But as the years went on I always wanted to learn new techniques! I love to make cards and play with inks and mediums in my Art Journal. During the holidays I am making ornaments and using Paper Crafting materials to decorate my gifts! Scrap Time showcases techniques used in all aspects of Paper Crafting!

The easiest way to find an older video is to use our search bar. Simply type in a brand, tool or technique that you are searching for and all posts mentioning that item will become available to you!!

I live in Toronto and it is rich in the Arts! Through Crafty Toronto I share a variety of Art throughout the city! This includes Store windows, public art, exhibits and shows, classes and events! I am hoping that the posts inspires you to either be creative or visit Toronto!!

I have fought with my weight all my life, but the past 10 years I just kept gaining. In February I decided to take action by joining Weight Watchers! Within weeks of joining I was losing weight and was extremely happy! I felt that if I blogged about my experiences, maybe it would help others out there that also battle with their weight. Each week I reveal what happened with my weigh-in, be it a loss or gain. I also include a post that features tips on food, exercise and shopping! I love reading others comments, sharing the experiences they are going through as well!

CHA is the Craft and Hobby Association. Twice a year – January in Anaheim and July in Chicago, Manufactures showcase their latest products for the Arts and Crafts Industry! I attend CHA as Media, which allows me to film videos of all of the latest products and more importantly, of all of our favourite crafters demoing the latest products, including Tim Holtz, Dyan Reaveley, and Heidi Swapp! Then I share these videos with all of you, so you too can learn from the Masters!!

Our books are available through the iTunes store and can only be viewed on an iPad! These are interactive books that include videos and photo galleries. Once it is downloaded on your iPad you can take it with you every where!! Check out the Books page to see the books that are currently for sale!

Yes!!! We understand that not everyone has an iPad, so we have made the books into online classes! Check out the Online Class page to see all the classes available. The classes are all self paced and will be available for your viewing for at least 1 year, probably longer!!

Now it is time for you to start exploring Scrap Time and watching all the videos! Thank for spending time with us!!

    I just posted in another area, don’t know where, but I forgot to mention that I wish you well on your journey to weight loss. I lost 60 pounds with weight watchers and believe it is a very healthy sensible way to change your eating habits. I love the video with Tim’s new metallic stains and wanted to throw my hat in the ring for the contest.

    I love your blog! I wanted to enter the Tim Holtz contest. I’m looking forward to reading about your weight loss journey. I also struggle with my weight, seems everytime I go on a diet, I end up gaining weight. I deprive myself of the foods I love, then go overboard when I do eat them.
