I have to tell you all about today! I was invited to ' Scrap Booking Event' and spoke to the group about crafting on a budget. Here's a few highlights. I did some comparison online shopping and I recommend these sites:
www.papermonkey.org, this site lists every paper crafting retailer online that is either Canadian or ships to Canada. Of the sites listed I researched and recommend the following:
www.trinitycrafts.ca - discounted prices by 20 to 80%, reasonable shipping as it's located in Acton, Ontario
www.simonsaysstamp.com - reasonable discounted prices, free shipping to Canada on orders over $75.00, flat shipping rate of $5.99 on orders under $50.00, and $7.99 o orders under $75.00, they also have more than 100,000 items in inventory making them the largest supplier on the internet!
www.ohmycrafts.com - great prices and sale bin, good selection of brand name products and reasonable shipping rates.
I will post individually all of the budget tips with photos where applicable so stay tuned budget minded paper crafters!
