Scor-Pal's December More Than One Score challenge - Anything Goes Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of December is Christmas - Anything Goes.  The hostess for this month is Patti. Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a treat dispenser!
Here is my treat dispenser, all packaged up and ready to deliver.  It measures 6" x 2.5" x 2.5".  You fill the dispenser from the top.  The ribbon tab assists you in removing the lid.  This dispenser works good for small treats like spice drops, jelly beans and M & M's. You could easily modify the box to accommodate larger sized treats.  
This is a another great challenge and it's always a great time to play along with the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. Try a new tutorial or a project that you have been meaning to try.  If you are low on ideas or are looking for inspiration, be sure to check out the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board.

Ways To Use Splatter

I'm the hostess for this week's Ways To Use It challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  I've titled the challenge Make A Mess, but you don't really have to.  Some folks can't stand mess when they are crafting. The challenge is about splatters.  

I splattered water and white acrylic paint on my galaxy background.  The galaxy background was the messiest part of this card.  However, I had it left over from another that I had made previously...like 6 months ago.  

Yep, I'm a bit of a hoarder.  The extra background has been living with other extra backgrounds on top of a file cabinet containing card stock scraps.  Sadly (or not, depending on if you take my view or my husband's view), I am constantly reinforcing this behavior by using these pieces.

Scor-Pal's November More Than One Score challenge - Special Birthdays

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of November is Special Birthdays.  The hostess for this month is Katie. Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a shadow box card!
While I didn't opt for 30, 18 or 50 as a theme for my card, I did choose a fun design.  It's not my normal either.  When you open it up, it says "from the whole herd".  We are always signing cards from large groups at work. 
This is a great challenge and it's always a great time to play along with the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.

Scor-Pal's October More Than One Score challenge - Fall, Harvest or Halloween

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of October is Fall, Harvest or Halloween.  The hostess for this month is Ruza.  Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a cute little treat box!
I opted for Halloween!  It was too much fun to pass up. Between having a child in school and working at a school, I can never have enough treat boxes.  This one measures 4 inches tall by 3 inches wide by 1 inch deep.  I was able to easily stack 5 snack size Whoppers into this Crisscross Box.

This is a great challenge and it's always a great time to play along with the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.

Scor-Pal's September More Than One Score challenge - Clean and Simple

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of September is Clean and Simple.  The hostess for this month is Isia.  Be sure to check back on the Scor-Pal blog at mid month for a tutorial on this month's project. My project today is a fun little gift box!
Interpreted "clean and simple" into my decoration of a more complex box.  It was so cool to figure out how to make it and I loved that fun corner that I didn't want to cover it up.  Therefore, I used a scored strip of patterned paper and a scored strip of acetate to mount my sentiment and little lamb on top of my box.  The box opens in the back so that one can place a small item to gift.

This is a great challenge and it's always a great time to play along with the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.

July "Pinspired"!

Hey there, crafty friends!  It's been some time since I have posted a "pinspired" project for you!  I'm hoping that you will enjoy this one.  I found it here via Pinterest , of course!  While it doesn't fit with this month's More Than One Score theme, it's a card that is sure to impress. Here is my Pull-Up Lantern card.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • Four pieces of 2" x 12" card stock
  • Twenty pieces of 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" card stock
  • Four pieces of 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" card stock
  • Sixteen pieces of 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" patterned paper
  • One piece of 6" x 6" patterned paper
  • One piece of 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" card stock
  • Two pieces of 7/8" x 3 1/4" card stock
  • 12" length of ribbon
  • Stamp
  • Ink
  • Sponge dauber
  • Hole punch
  • Circle punches
  • Additional card stock for circles
Place a 2" by 12" strip with its long side against the top fence of the Scor-Pal.  Score at 2", 6" and 10".
Flip strip over and score at 4" and 8". Repeat with remaining 3 2"x 12" card stock strips.
If you chose to stamp sentiments on your card, then complete this now. There are four stamped 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares on this project.  The edges of these squares was lightly sponged with the same ink that was used for the sentiment.
Use Scor-Tape to assemble the four scored card stock strips.  The 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" stamped sentiment squares and patterned paper squares are matted on top of the 1 3/4' x 1 3/4" card stock squares.  Those 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" squares are adhered to the top five scored sections of the card stock strips.
Turn over card stock strips and line the sixth scored section with Scor-Tape.
Removed adhesive backing on Scor-Tape and attach one card stock strip in center of each side of the 6" x 6" piece of patterned paper.
Use Scor-Tape to attach the two 7/8" x 3 1/4" in a "plus sign" formation.  Use a hole punch to create a small hole in the center of the two pieces.
Punch three circles from card stock.  Punches measuring 1" and 3/4" were used here.  Mat the 3/4" circle on top of the 1" circle with Scor-Tape and punch a hole through the center.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the ends of the 7/8" x 3 1/4" strips which have been arranged in a "plus sign" formation.  
Place the crossed strips under the top scored sections of the card stock strips.  Arrange it so that the "plus" is centered.  Carefully remove adhesive backing and attach to each strip one at a time. Take care to keep the "plus" centered.
Flip over the 6"x 6" patterned paper and line the edges with Scor-Tape.
Remove adhesive backing and attach to the 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" piece of card stock.
Fold 12" length of ribbon in half and push through the bottom opening of the hole punched in the center of the cross between the card stock strips. Adhere ribbon underneath with a Scor-Tape and one punched circle.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the back of the second punched circle.  Removed adhesive backing and thread ribbon through the bottom of the circle.
Be certain to adhere the matted circles neatly in the center of the "plus sign". The ribbon then is your means to pull up the lantern card and expose the strips.
This fun card has a bit of the spring to it due to the scored strips and can be helped to expand with the attached ribbon on top.

Thanks for visiting today!
