Scor-Pal November "More Than One Score" Challenge Mid-Month Tutorial

Wow, it's already mid-November and time for this month's tutorial. The theme for this month's Scor-Pal "more than one score" challenge is Special Gift Packaging.  I'm hostessing this month and I made berry box for holding any kind of gift.
 For this project you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 8" x 8" piece of patterned paper
  • Two 1/2" x 8" pieces of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Leaf die 
  • Stamp set
  • Ink
  • Ribbon
  • Sponge dauber
  • Dimensional adhesive
Place the 8" by 8" piece of designer paper in the Scor-Pal.  Score at 2 1/2" and 5 1/2".  

Turn the patterned paper 180 degrees and score again at 2 1/2" and 5 1/2".
Burnish all of the score lines.
Trim away the four corner created by the score lines.
Line the edges of each side with Scor-Tape.
Place one 1/2" by 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 8" side against the fence.  Score at 3 7/8" and 7 3/4".  Repeat the process with the second piece of card stock.
Burnish the score lines.
Apply Scor-Tape to the 1/4" sections of the scored card stock.
 Remove adhesive backing and create the top band for the berry box.
Remove the adhesive backing from the sides of the patterned paper and adhere the band to the top of the sides, creating the berry box.
Embellish the berry box as desired.
Now fill the berry box with any gift you wish to give!

October "Pinspired"!

Hey there, Crafty Friends!  It's time again for a fun "pinspired" post.  I found this pin for a tiny treat holder on the Scor-Pal Pinterest board. It fit perfectly with this month's More Than One Score challenge theme, so I went for it!
 For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 3" x 9" piece of patterned paper 
  • Paper snips
  • Stamps
  • Ink/Markers
  • Punches/Dies
  • Rhinestones
  • Dimensional Adhesive
Place the 3" x 9" piece of patterned paper into the Scor-Pal with the 9" side along the fence. Make sure that the pattern you want on the outside of the box is facing up.  Score at 1", 4", 5" and 8".  

Turn your patterned paper 180 degrees in the Scor-Pal, so that the 3" side is now along the fence.  Score at 1" and 2".
Burnish all of your score lines.
Create tabs by cutting up the 1", 4", 5" and 8" score lines to the 1" horizontal score line. Repeat on the second side.
 Apply Scor-Tape to all six tabs, as shown.
Remove adhesive backing and fold tabs in to create two ends and then the bottom of the box.

Finish up by embellishing your tiny treat holder as desired.

Scor-Pal's October More Than One Score Challenge - Treat Holders

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of September is Bags & Boxes.  Our hostess will be Ruza this month.  I'm sure she will have something amazing for us.  The project that I am presenting today is a Tiny Treat Holder!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the Scor-Pal designers have created.
Here are my treat holders, all closed up! I am showing the miniature candies for size.  They fit perfectly inside the tiny treat holders.  Lip balm or chap stick also fit quite nicely.
Here is an open treat holder to show the fit of the candy to the box.  You can also see how the treat holder opens to reveal the contents of the box. This is a very simple project that I adopted from Angie Juda.

I hope you will play along this month with our treat holder challenge.  If you need somewhere to look for inspiration or help, try the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board. I look forward to checking out your projects!

Behind The Dragonfly

It's another Dare To Get Dirty challenge card today.  I can't reveal the challenge details, but I can tell you that I have seen pretty Pin after pretty Pin with washi tape behind negative die cuts.  It was just my turn today to have a go at it.

This makes the 7th card that I have made for the Dare To Get Dirty challenges.  I'm pretty excited about that even though I am behind the challenges at this point.  I'll end up with a load of lovely cards and have had a good time.  

Tune in tomorrow for something a little different.  Have a great evening!

Sweet Peaches


More Dare To Get Dirty in my life.  I have yet to look at today's challenges to see what is in store, but I'm sure that there will be something to push me out of my comfort zone again.  This card was for Lydia's Dare To Get Dirty challenge.  While I can't share the details of the challenge, I can tell you that it really moved me out of my comfort zone.  I rarely water color for fear that I might be doing it wrong, but I really like how this one turned out!

Of course, I turned it into a clean and simple card.  That's just me!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a glorious finish to your weekend!

What's Moo?

DARE TO GET DIRTY 2017!!
Yep, that's right! It's time again for super fun challenges from tip top designers, the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Girls! Unless you are a Fan Club member, the details of the challenges are secret. My first card of the day is from a challenge by Sandee.  

One of my favorite things to do with challenges like these is reach deep into my stash and use things that I haven't used in a while. For example, I haven't used this cow in ages. However, she's super cute. I took this card in a whimsical direction for fun.

Ways To Warm It Up!

Oh, by the way, yesterday was a new Ways To Use It challenge with Lisa as our hostess! She challenged us to "Warm It Up"...so I did an emboss resist technique. I also used yellow and orange as warm colors. 

This little PI girl has been hanging out on my desk all colored and trimmed out.  She has been waiting for just the right card and this one was it!

Here's the challenge, right here.  Consider it is "warm up" for the next few weeks worth of Dare To Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  If you are not a member, you will definitely want to become one.  It's such a super event!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Ways To Use Scoring

Hello and Happy Thursday!  I'm the hostess for today's Ways To Use It challenge on Splitcoaststampers. One of my favorite tools is my Scor-Pal.  I'm sure that is no surprise to anyone.  So I made a sweet little center step card for my challenge.  

I cheated a bit, if you will, by using washi tape and stickers on the side and bottom panels.  I had to fuss around quite a bit with the colors I used in the rose to try and match it to the washi tape.  I love that mint color and don't have it readily available in my stash in ink form.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scor-Pal July "More Than One Score" Challenge Mid-Month Tutorial

That's right!  We are in the middle of July and ready for the mid-month tutorial.  This month's Scor-Pal featured challenge is a "more than one score with a die cut" theme.    I'm hostessing and have made a fun slider box with die cuts on top and bottom.

Here's a picture of the slider box opened up just a bit so that you can see the box base.  The box measures 4" long by 2 3/4" wide by 1" deep.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 6 3/4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • One 4" x 8" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Top Note die cut
  • Additional dies for embellishing
  • Additional card stock for embellishing
  • Rhinestones for embellishing
  • Stamps
  • Ink
Place the 6 3/4" by 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 6 3/4" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 2", 4 3/4" and 5 3/4".
Turn card stock 90 degrees so that the 8" side is against the fence. Score at 1", 2", 6" and 7".
Trim away the three outer squares in each corner, as shown.
With paper snips, cut tabs on the 8" side of the card stock.  The picture below shows the tabs.
Burnish all of the score lines.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the outside of the box base.  Also, adhere Scor-Tape to the tabs as shown.
Remove adhesive backing and fold down the 6 3/4" sides.
Remove the adhesive backing and fold in the tabs on both sides
Remove the adhesive backing on the tabs and fold down the last two sides. Here is your box base.
Place the 4" x 8" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 8" side along the fence.  Score at 1", 3 3/4", 4 3/4" and 7 1/2".  
Burnish all of the scores.
Line the 1/2" tab on the back with Scor-Tape.
Wrap the 4" x 8" scored card stock around the box base.  This now becomes the cover that the base slides into.  
Use your die cuts to embellish your newly constructed slider box.
*Original tutorial modified to fit my own die cuts.  

Thanks for reading all the way through this tutorial and I hope you give this More Than One Score challenge a try!
