Ep. 986 – WRMK 2 Colour Letterpress Plates – Dots

Scrap Time - Ep. 986 - WRMK 2 Colour Letterpress Plates

Today I am showing you the WRMK 2 Colour Letterpress PlatesDots! You get 2 plates in the set: the dots and the stripes. You use these plates with the Letterpress Starter kit! Simply put an adhesive sheet onto the plate and place it onto your platform. When placing your plate, watch where you place the corner with the notch cut out of it. I was using the A2 Folded Card. I added the foam placement guides onto my platform so I can easily place the cards. Brayer your ink onto the acrylic plate and then onto the design of your plate. Fold over your platform and roll it through your die cutting machine. I use the WRMK Evolution. Then reveal your card with your first colour!

Now you want to clean off your plate. You can use the WRMK Cloths. I use some Orange Solvent with a paper towel. Once your plate is clean, peel it off the platform. You now want to place the notched corner of the plate on the opposite corner. So if it was in the top right corner, the notch should now be on the bottom left corner. Then repeat the steps above with a second colour of ink!

When I am letter pressing I make a pile of cards at once! I then make little packs of 6 cards and give them away as Hostess and Christmas gifts!

WDW – Photo Pass and Memory Maker

Disney World 2012

As you walk through the Parks you will notice Photographers every where you go! This is the Photo Pass service offered by Disney. You can go up to any of the photographers and they will take your picture. This is great to get those family shots! The Photographers are usually stationed at the entry of the parks near the big attractions, like in front of the Castle or the Animal Kingdom Tree of Life. When you get your photo taken, they will scan your Magic Band, to link the photos to your account.

Disney World 2012

You will also find the Photo Pass Photographers at the Character Meet n Greets. You can still use your own camera to take a picture, but they will be taking some as well.

Disney World 2012

If your child goes to a special event, such as the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party, there are Photographers there as well, taking pictures of all of the kids. After the event, you visit a Photo Pass store or kiosk, tell them the event and choose the pictures you want added to your account.

Disney World 2012

The same goes for photos taken at the Beauty and the Beast attraction!

Disney World 2012

And for the photos taken on specific rides!

Disney World 2012

You will even find them at some of the Restaurants!

Disney World 2012

I love that for special events, they will add details to some of the photos. Such as the ghosts during the Halloween Party! As well, we had pictures of Gemma holding Tickerbell that were taken on the Main Street in the Magic Kingdom.

Disney World 2012

If you go to the Pirates League or the Bibbitti Bobbitti Boutique, those photos will be added to your Photo Pass as well!

Disney World 2012

So now that you had all of these photos taken, how do you view them? You will set up a Photo Pass account where you will be able to view all of your photos. You will also be able to add borders and other fun details to your photos!

Disney World 2012

How much do the prints cost? A 4″x6″ set of 2 (of the same photo) or a 5″x7″ is $14.95 each and an 8″x10″ is $16.95. Or you can download the photo from the website for $14.95. However, if you think you will want to get 10 or more prints, you have the option of purchasing the Memory Maker. If purchased in advance, it is $149.95 and you will receive either a disc, or be able to automatically download every photo that is in your Photo Pass account! If you decide to purchase the Memory Maker once you are at Disney, it is $199.

Disney World 2012

So should you buy Memory Maker? On our trip during Halloween/Christmas I knew I wanted a bunch of photos, so I ordered the Memory Maker and took full advantage! I made my family take pictures every time we saw a Photo Pass Photographer!! On other trips we ordered just a few photos, that I bought individually! So think about what you are looking for. Do you want all of your ride photos? Are you getting a makeover? Do you want a bunch of shots with the whole family? Do you want multiple prints to give as a gift? The decision is up to you!

Ep. 985 – Pan Pastel Colorless Blender

Scrap Time - Ep. 985 - Pan Pastel Blender

Today I am showing you the new Pan Pastel Colorless Blender! This allows you to blend your colours smoothly together. If you were to use the White, it would change the hue by tinting it. In the video I show you how I added colour at the top and bottom of the petals, and with the Colorless Blender I was able to blend the 2 colours over the entire petal.

The Colorless Blender is available through DickBlick.com. Curry’s carries Pan Pastels, but I don’t see the Blender listed yet.

On the next episode I am featuring the WRMK 2-Color Letterpress Plates!

WDW – What Tickets Should you Buy?

WDW - Magic Bands

There are so many ticket options at Walt Disney! The good news is, the longer you stay, the better deals you can get!! If you were to go for just 1 day, a ticket to the Magic Kingdom cost $99/adult! However, if you were able to stay 10 days, an Adult ticket is now $354!! Children’s ticket are a little less, but not by much.

Then there are the add-ons. Park Hopper is an additional $60/ticket; Water Park Fun and More is also an additional $60/ticket; or you can add both for $86/ticket.

As well, there are Annual Passes. A regular Annual Pass is $634, while a Premium Pass is $754.

World Showcase

So, what tickets do you need? Here are my suggestions. If you are going for 1-4 days, I would just get a regular ticket, no add-ons. Spend 1 day at each of the 4 parks. If you don’t need the full day at a Park – such as the Animal Kingdom closes early, then spend that evening at Downtown Disney or exploring the Resorts.

If you are going for 5-10 days, then I would recommend adding on the Park Hopper. This allows you to visit more than 1 park in a day. A lot of times we would spend the morning at the Magic Kingdom and the evening at Epcot!

If you are going for 2 weeks or more, then get an Annual Pass! It cost the same as a regular ticket, but now you can get a 10% discount on some food and purchases!

Typhoon Lagoon

Do you need the Water Park add-on? A single ticket to a Water Park is $53/day. If you were already getting the Park Hopper, the add-on is now $26 for Water Parks. The question is, will you go! Unless you are staying for an extended visit, I don’t know if you would want to take a day away from the parks to go to the Water Parks. We have been to both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach! They are both a lot of fun, but it depends on how long you are staying and how much you love Water Parks!

Personally, I like to plan 2 visits within a year. Gemma and I were at Disney in March and the whole family is going back in December. We all have Annual Passes, that we were able to get through DVC for a discounted price. We actually have a Premium Pass, yet in March Gemma and I did not venture out to a Water Park, and we won’t go to one in December either. Gemma and I are returning in March and staying for 13 days, and will probably get another Annual Pass. You never know what next December may hold!!

Do you have any advice for people buying their tickets to Walt Disney World?

Ep. 984 – Chameleon Color Tone Pens

Scrap Time - Ep. 984 - Chameleon Color Tone Markers

Today I am showing you the Chameleon Color Tone Pens. They are an Alcohol Based Pen, but what makes them unique is that you can get a whole range of tones from 1 pen. The pen has a Brush nib and a Bullet nib. Each pen comes with a Mixing Chamber. You simply place the nib you want into the Mixing Chamber. The nib will be infused with the toning medium. The longer you leave it, them more medium will be transferred. Then, once you start colouring, the tone will change from barely there to full on colour, allowing you to get beautiful, seamless blends! With the one pen you can add both your highlights and your shadows! Above I used a stamp from Stamping Bella!

Scrap Time - Ep. 984 - Chameleon Color Tone Markers

Here is a chart of the colours currently available. You can see the gradation of each of the colours. You can buy the pens in a set or individually.

Scrap Time - Ep. 984 - Chameleon Color Tone Markers

Here is another image I coloured in. It is also from Stamping Bella!

Check out the Chameleon Pens site for more information!

On the next episode I am showing you the Pan Pastel Blender!
