Any suggestions on how to get cheap scrapbook supplies?

Hi Suiteepi,

Welcome to the site. What area of Toronto are you in? I'm in the west end (close to high park area).

I'm no help with your questions. My computer is toast so I haven't uploaded anything yet. And, I'm not exactly good at scrapbooking on the cheap. I love buying the all the cute goodies that we have out there.

Sorry I can't be any help.

Hi, I hope ya'll don't mind my jumping in on your thread to make a request. My dd and I are doing a project with postcards and I have been asking anyone who would be willing to mail my dd a postcard. There is more personal info if you use the link in my signature. I find that people at this site are so nice. Please pm if you are interested. Thanks so much either way and again, sorry to "butt" in on your thread.

Hello everyone - I'm from Oakville, and have only been scrapbooking for a short time, but oh am I loving it. Not getting as much time for it as I would like, as my dd is 23 months old and I work full time. Husband just shakes his head at my new addiction! Love this site, but still getting familiar with it (this is my first forum post!). Hope to get to know some of you.

I'm in Toronto, I don't come here to often, as I'm usually on another mb, and that is where I spend most of my time.

LSS that I buy at, two that I love #1 Bizzyb and #2 Scrapbooksbydesign. BB is sooo close and they are wonderful!!! Mind you so are Scrapbooksbydesign, for my sizzix and ellison dies I order from Ohio Scrapbooks as they seem to have the best prices for Canadians, or are more Canadian friendly when it comes to shipping etc....

Never been to Cochrane but I did go to U of Ottawa on the French side and tons of students came from Northern Ontario. Also, a friend's best friend went to Cochrane to teach for years straight out of Teacher's college.

Ooh! Ontario people! Yay!

I'm in SSM. We have exactly one scrapbooking store, which I go to occasionally. There's no real craft store anymore, and I don't go to Mall*Wart for my own reasons, so for the most part I rely on what was, for me, an unexpected source for papers and embellishments: Dollarama. Seriously. They've got some lovely patterned paper s, and at a coordinated six-pack for a buck, you can't go wrong. They've got some great new sets that have come out recently -- hotpink/orange, rose/beige/brown, etc. I'm also very fond of Winners, at least for albums.

what exactly is a 'swap' i have an idea, but not sure what to expect. it sounds like a chain letter thing, like one time my mum did tea towels, and was supposed to send one to the last person on this list and get like, 6 to her but it never really worked like that.. anyways it sounds cool to me can someone help me out??? thanks bunches.

Swaps are awesome!! Beware though...very addicting.

For the swaps I've done, everyone signs up for a place in a group. For example, I'm doing a monogram swap. We each picked a letter and we make 26 decorated monograms of that letter. Then we all send ours in to the hostess. She organizes everything so that we each get back one of everyone else's letters. That way we have a full alphabet back.

There are swaps for just about anything...Page kits, letters, tags, altered items. You name it, and there's probably a swap for it. Same with themes...Holidays, family members, activities.

I think that circle journals work a bit more like the tea towel swap your mom did. I don't know for sure though 'cause I've never done one. I'm pretty sure scraptasticmama does them. She probably has a much better idea about these.

Oh ya...Don't worry, you don't have to make 26 items for all the swaps. Lots of them you only have to make 5 or so items and then get that number back. (didn't want it to sound like too much work).

Megnificent, where in Ontario do you live? I'm in Toronto as well. I'm a social worker too.

Angela, I worked at that McDonald's all through high school and the first summer of university.

Winners has some great stuff. Do you have one there? I found some Chatterbox embellie sets there. In other stores they're at lease $20. There I found them for $6-$8. I don't always see stuff there but when I do, it's usually a great deal.

re. Winners -- I also found this nifty "ScrapBrick" there. All earthtones, which wasn't great for me, but still, it's a brick of lightweight cardstock letters, numbers, frames, squares, circles, tags, and a few flowers and seashells, in a pretty broad assortment of colours and patterns! I've used a few pieces so far, and they look great. Very bold.

Edit: apparently the scrapbrick is by Colorbok .

Hey Everyone
I'm a northern girl from Sudbury that has been transplanted in Toronto...well Mississauga now since 1989.

I'm a Child and Youth Counsellor. I've been scrappin for about 6 yrs. I have 2 boys Mac 7 and Marko soon to be 3. My dh tolerates my obsession..LOL

There was a question re where do you buy your stuff...I get my stuff everywhere. Scrappers Island is a great online store with lots of sales. I do $stores and Costcos, I've done some Ebay...but mostly tend to shop at the lss. I agree with Sevannah I love Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap store
If anyone is looking for a good crop..check out

Hi fellow Ontarians (?) I tend to collect scrapbooking stuff where ever I find it, but my 2 favourites are Dollarama...great spot for cheap stickers and embellishments. and Michaels, although there stuff is sometimes expensive I use the 40 or 50% off Coupon s from the paper when I want to buy a new tool.

We will have a blast with it! email me at [email protected] or pm me and let me know if you wanna host a party and earn alot of free product and learn about this amazing company.

If there's something you're looking for, I can get it for you and ship it as long as you cover the costs. I have a friend who lives in nunavut and I do this for her all of the time.

Where are you in T.O.? There's Urban Scrapyard in the Eglington /Laird area...they have some nice things...lots and lots of pp, cardstock, plus embellies and tools. i usually frequent that store on Thursdays...for the simple reason I'm down there that day. There's also a store called 10 below @ Dufferin/steeles area and while they are not a scrapbooking store, they have a section that IS devoted to scrapping supplies. (they sell everything for $10 and under)

Hello neighbours! I'm in Courtice (East of Oshawa)-we have a great LSS "Scrapbook Emporium" but I also tend to shop online a bit. Just bought the silhouette (like the Wishblade ) and was roaming the board for tips (hadn't logged on in quite awhile), it's a great site and I'll need to check it out more often!

Hello Everyone from Canada
I'm in the Guelph area. All of our scrapbookers in Guelph seem to be in hiding. But not for long. I have a studio and retreat and have been booking weekends fast and furiously. Word is getting out there quickly. I would love to see all of you stop by the studio and spend a great weekend just cropping all weekend, meals and hot tub and everything centered around "YOU".
Check me out at www.youniquecountryretreat.com

we will have our online store set up shortly as well.

Does anyone have an idea how to scrapbook xmas cards with out cutting them up so as to make them last. If you have any could you please let me know? Thanx! By the way I love this website

I am from Pennsylvania but I am in the process of moving to Canada, working on the immigration paperwork now. My husband who is Canadian, and I will be moving to London where his family is and hopefully staying in that immediate area but we will venture out for jobs. We hope to be there by the summer but realistically the immigration process can take up to a year...eecks!

Hi All,

I was born and raised in Toronto. I lived in Guelph Ontario for the first ten years of my marriage. Right now I am in Peru with my job missing the snow at Christmas time.

I love being here, it is great. My job is working with orphaned children so it is always busy and interesting. We went ot the beach for New Years day, something my girls now wish we didn't do because they all have bad sunburns.

I should say that I miss the snow but not the cold and I am usually sick of it by mid January. I know my husband misses it more, he is a real outdoorsman. Also I keep finding all of these really great winter scrapbook PP's and I can't use them, oh well, maybe we'll take our first furlough over winter.

Hi Corrie,

Welcome to Scrapbook.com! I am moving to Canada soon and possibly Cambridge. My husband and I were going to go to London where his family is, but he just got a job in Cambridge so we may end up there or somewhere around there. I don't know many online stores. Could you tell me are there any Michaels or Local scrapbook store s in your area? Just in case we go to Cambridge...

Thanks,
Brandi

Lots of solitary scrappers, from what I can tell, one LSS (which doesn't update its website -- the most recent newsletter/calendar is from '06), and a lot of traffic across the border for supplies!

There's...not much going on here. Even Sudbury looks pretty dismal: one LSS, but at least they have a Michael's, according to the website. I was thinking I'd try to pick up some stuff when I go this weekend, but it doesn't look like it'll be worth it.

Wonderful forum!
I recently joined sb.com and was wondering if there were any fellow Ontarians, so I searched "Ontario" and got your forum. I'm so glad. I am from Hamilton. Hello to fellow Hamiltonians and a shout out to the Branfordites.
Happy Scrappin & Card creating everyone!
