Crafty Toronto – Curry’s Art Supplies

Crafty Toronto - Currys

Within the last year Curry’s bought out Woolfitt’s and they have done an amazing job with the store! It is located at 1153 Queen St W, between Dovercourt and Dufferin. They have rows of paints, markers, papers, books, canvases – everything you need for your Art Project! They are open 7 days a week and also offer 1 hour of FREE parking, which is unheard of in Toronto!! I am lucky enough to be able to walk to this location! I love walking the aisles and discovering something new to experiment with! The staff are knowledgeable and can help you find the right product for the job! If you are in the city, definitely make a stop at Curry’s on Queen West!

Ep. 938 – Crafter’s Workshop Templates by Rebekah Meier w/ Derwent Inktense Blocks

Scrap Time - Ep. 939 - Crafter's Workshop Templates

Today I am showing you some new templates from the Crafter’s Workshop designed by Rebekah Meier. I have been using these stencils non-stop in my Exploring Art Journaling 3 class!! (You can still sign up!!) They are the 12″12″ Ring Doily, Stained Glass, Rosetta, Byzantine, Specimen and Sketch Grid templates. You can also get them in 6″x6″: Mini Rosetta, Mini Ring Doily, Mini Stained Glass, Mini Byzantine, Mini Sketch Grid and Mini Specimen.

I decided to make some of my own mists using the Derwent Inktense Blocks! Derwent offers a Grate n Shake to shave down the blocks into a powder. You simply mix the shavings with water in a mister. You can combine a few colours together to make your own custom colours. Test your spray to see if it is the intensity you want and then you are ready to spray! On the page above I used the Ring Doily and the Mini Byzantine stencils. I sprayed some black over the Sketch Grid stencil. I finished the page off with some of my Gelli Printed Digitally Cut Flowers that I sell in my etsy shop!

I did the same technique on this page, but used a few of the Mini Stencils instead of 1 large one.

WW – Saying No to the Free Stuff

Target pop up patio

Yesterday, after my Weight Watchers Meeting, Target had set up a Pop-Up Patio at Roy Thompson Hall. Sam Roberts was going to be performing and they had a BBQ, as well as a local Food Truck serving up FREE food! What an amazing way to get a free lunch! I didn’t investigate too much, but I know there were burgers, and the Food Truck offers some tasty treats. But I stopped to think about it more, and at what cost is the free food. It may not cost you money, but it would definitely cost you calories and points! I hadn’t allocated a pile of points to my lunch, so I knew in the long run, the free food they were offering me, wasn’t worth it.

I ended up gaining 0.8lbs. You never know what that scale will say.

Ep. 937 – WRMK Instagram Pocket Pages & Journaling Cards

Scrap Time - Ep. 937 - WRMK Instagram Pocket Pages

Gemma and I went to Disney World over the March Break. This is the 6th time she has been there. I didn’t think I would take that many pictures, but I was wrong. I ended up with 250 photos that I wanted to print! I decided I didn’t want to dedicate another album to Disney, so I just added it into my ongoing album. WRMK has a couple page designs for Instagram photos, and I decided to use the 9 – 4″x4″ pocket pages. As well, WRMK now offers journaling cards to fit in the Instagram pockets, and I am using the Jet Set cards on these pages!

The Jet Set journaling cards come with 4″x4″ cards and 2″x2″ cards. It has cards with sayings, cards for journaling, and cards to use as frames. They also had cards for your Top 3 pics, that I used for each of the Disney Parks. I used one of the framed cards above. I didn’t use many of them since I frame my photos to take up the whole space, not leaving room to add a frame around it.

I took all of the photos using my iPhone. I edited them as I took them. I kept my favourite and deleted the rest. I would edit them when we were waiting in lines, or sitting in restaurants. Disney World has free wi-fi, so I was able to share the photos on Instagram, so Mark, who didn’t come with us, could see what we were doing each day!

Gemma has an iPhone as well and also took some pictures. I love these Selfies that she took with each of the characters. Letting your kids take pictures gives you a new perspective on a place you may visit often!

I use the app PicStitch to make my collage pictures. At the Magic Kingdom there is a new Parade – Festival of Fantasy – so I took pictures of all of the floats. I didn’t want to have piles of pictures to add to my album, so I made a collage of 4 pictures in 1! I also do this a lot for meals we ate and pictures from attractions. Otherwise, imagine how many more pictures I would have to print!

Finally I used the 6″x12″ Keepsake pocket to add all my memorabilia! There were maps, mini golf cards, Flower and Garden passport – just fun stuff we got along the way!
