Ep. 997 – WRMK Star Ornament Die

Scrap Time - Ep. 997 - WRMK Star Ornament Die

Today I am showing you the WRMK Star Ornament Die! This die is great all year long, but you can make it Christmassy by using red and green papers! I have used papers from the Basics Paper Pad. You cut the die 6 times and then simply turn the pieces and adhere them – I used glue dots. I show you how to do this in the video.

Once you have your 6 pieces done, adhere 3 pieces to each other and then the 2 sets of 3 together. I originally used Glue Dots, but then I went back and stapled the pieces together. Add a piece of ribbon or twine through the hole and it is ready to hang! I am hanging mine on our bedroom doors!

WDW – Where to Meet Mickey Mouse!

WDW - March 2014

Gemma and I love meeting the Characters. You can also get their autographs! Mickey Mouse is a staple and there are many places to meet him. The best thing is that he changes his outfit depending where he is. At the Magic Kingdom you can meet Talking Mickey. He even plays Magic Tricks!! You will find Talking Mickey at the Town Square Theatre, near the entrance of the Park!

Disney World

You will find Sorcerer Mickey at the Animation Studio in Hollywood Studios.

WDW - March 2014

At the Animal Kingdom you will find Safari Mickey! Mickey is also at the Character Spot in Epcot, but strangely we have never gone there. We will rectify that on our next trip.

Ep. 996 – Snow Day by Lawn Fawn

Scrap Time - Ep. 996 - Snow Day by Lawn Fawn

Today I am showing you the Snow Day Collection from Lawn Fawn. There are stamps with co-ordinating dies, papers, embellishments and twine. On the first card above I used the Stamps and Dies together, with the 6×6 paper pad. On the second card I used the Forest Border Die. This die cuts the top only – so you can make the bottom any size you want.

There are also Note Cards available in a few colours. On this note card I used the Tree Die only (without the stamps).

On these 2 Note Cards I used the Quinn’s ABC’s Stamps and Dies and added the Flair and Wood Snowflake as the ‘O’.

You can also get Kraft Envelopes to go with the Note Cards. I used the stamps and dies to decorate the envelopes!

Finally, I made some tags using all of the Snow Day Products. It is simple to stamp an image, add an extra die cut or use up the rest of your embellishments! I stamped the names using Milo and Riley’s ABC’s! And don’t forget to add a piece of the Green and White Twine to attach it to your gifts!

Ep. 995 – Advent Calendar using Hazel and Ruby Wrap It Up!

Scrap Time - Ep. 995 - Hazel and Ruby Wrap It Up

Hazel and Ruby has released a line of papers – Wrap It Up! – perfect for wrapping gifts or doing paper projects when you need a piece of paper larger than 12×12. The Maps of the World paper is 18″ wide and 48″ long. You get 3 sheets of paper in the tube. The Glassine and Gold is 18″ wide in a 12′ roll. There are many other designs to choose from! I really like the paper since it is thinner than scrapbooking paper. It is great to use for cutting out bags to use for gifts! I decided to use the Wrap It Up to make Gemma an Advent Calendar. I cut the papers using the WRMK dies: Paper Bag, Treat Bag, Pillow Box and the Disc Envelope. I then used the Mixed Numbers Hazel and Ruby Stencil Masks with Black Paint to number all of the bags. I will then fill all of the bags with Gift Cards, Candies, Lip Gloss, Bracelet Kits, Nail Polish and other small items I pick up!

You can purchase the Hazel and Ruby products directly from their website!

When you shop at www.ShopWeR.com you can get 20% off your order when you use the Promo Code “SCRAPTIME”! I’m not sure if the code will be available come January, so get your shopping in NOW!!!!

On the next episode I am showing you the Lawn Fawn Snow Day Collection!

WDW – Dissecting the Dining Plan – Is It Worth It?

WDW - March 2014

One of the things I love to do at Disney is eat! Walt Disney World offers a Dining Plan, but does it actually save you money?

Mickey Ice Cream Sandwiches

First off, if you are going to Disney when they are offering FREE DINING than YES!!! It is worth it! We were lucky to have one of our visits coincide with FREE Dining and it did save us a lot of money!

WDW March 2013

But now you actually have to pay for your dining. One of the benefits is having the expense covered before you leave. Less money you need to take on vacation with you. However, even though you have the Dining Plan, you are still required to pay the taxes and gratuities on your meal. It is not completely FREE.

Flame Tree BBQ

So, lets break it down. There are 3 Dining Plans: Quick Serve – $41.99/day/adult, $16.03/day/child 3-9 – 2 quick serve meals, 1 snack, 1 resort mug; Regular Dining – $60.04/day/adult, $19.23/day/child – 1 quick serve, 1 table service, 1 snack, 1 resort mug; Deluxe Dining – $109.53/day/adult, $29.86/day/child – 3 meals (of any type), 2 snack, 1 resort mug. The most popular Dining Plan is the Regular Dining Plan. The Quick Serve is fine if you don’t really care about eating – you just want to be quick and get back to the attractions. However, dining is a great time to take a break and relax a bit. Get re-energized! The Deluxe Dining is a lot of food! If you are planning on eating at a lot of 2 credit restaurants then maybe it would be worth it, but not for most.

Mickey Waffle

So let’s say we are staying at Disney for 7 nights. 1 adult Regular Dining Plan would cost $420.28. A Rapid Fill Resort Mug is $17.99, so that leaves us with $402.29. Divided by the 7 days is $57.47/day.

Surprising Sonny

Let’s plan a day at the Magic Kingdom. We will have lunch at Cosmic Rays: A BBQ Pork Sandwich $10.29, Lemonade $2.99 with Triple Chocolate Cake $4.19. Lunch, before tax, is $17.47. That leaves us with $40 for dinner.

Pooh

We will have dinner at the Crystal Palace. This is a buffet and the Winnie-the Pooh Characters come around to the tables. The price here varies throughout the year, but is approximately $40. So you have now broken even, therefore getting your $5 snack for FREE!!

But let’s back track for a moment. If I was eating at Cosmic Rays I would order my BBQ Pork Sandwich $10.29, ask for a cup of water $0.00 and skip the dessert. Therefore my lunch would deb $7.18 less. Do you need to eat dessert at every meal? After 7 days, I just saved myself $50.26.

The Grey Stuff

Instead of eating at the Crystal Palace Buffet, you decided to go to Be Our Guest. This is a restaurant that is a little more expensive. I love the Grilled Strip Steak $33.49, with a Coke 2.99 and the ‘Grey Stuff’ $4.19. Dinner here is $40.67. Just $0.67 more than Crystal Palace. Once again, I personally will just have water for dinner, but I’m enjoying my ‘Grey Stuff’! So I save $2.99.

Beaches n Cream

These are average prices you will find across Disney for Lunch and Dinner. Once a child turns 10, they must be on an Adult Dining Plan. However, when Gemma and I went to Disney, most restaurants allowed her to order off the Kids Menu since we were paying for the meal, which saved us money. Or, Gemma and I often shared a meal, again saving us money. Plus, if you have an Annual Pass or are a DVC member, you can receive 10% off many table service restaurants.

Napoleon

So you have to decide what works for you. We personally find, for our eating habits, that the Dining Plan doesn’t save us any money.

Note: I got the food prices from various places on the internet. They may be subject to change.

Have you used the Dining Plan? What tips do you have for Dining at Walt Disney World?
