Scor-Pal's July More Than One Score Challenge - Three of a Kind

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of July is Three of a Kind.  The hostess for this month is Lois.  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 trio of easel cards!
The thing that I love about challenges like this month's are that you can really use up product when you are making three of a kind.  I've had these great Authentique Life cards for some time.  I've used them here or there.  This challenge gave me the chance to really have some fun with them.  
I also spent some time matching up border dies with these images so that they might make a little more sense. This card might be my favorite right now!  
I'm loving this one for the fun loopy border die that reminds me of old school telephone cords.  We had some really long cords and they would tangle something fierce.  I also remember twirling them around me fingers when on the phone as a teenager.
This last card reminded me of marquis lights and I thought it was a perfect match for the sentiment here. This is a 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. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Scor-Pal's May Flowers "More Than One Score" Challenge Mid-Month Tutorial

Here we are, flying through the month again!  We are halfway through the month and I have the mid-month tutorial on the Pinwheel Fold Card for you.  I have incorporated my flowers into my lovely designer paper and into the image stamped inside with my message. The rest of the team has made some amazing projects so be sure to check out the Scor-Pal blog for pictures and links to their blogs
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Envi
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 6" x 6" piece of double sided designer paper
  • One 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of card stock
  • One 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" piece of card stock
  • paper snips
  • stamps
  • ink
  • ribbon
Place the Scor-Envi into the top right hand corner of the Scor-Pal.  Place the 6" x 6" piece of designer paper with one corner in the 6" groove, one side aligned with the Scor-Envi and the opposite corner lined up with the 6" groove. Score at the 7 3/4" mark.  Rotate 90 degrees and repeat for the remaining sides. Remember to score on the side of the paper that you want on the outside of your card.
Trim out the triangles made my intersecting score lines on each side.
Burnish your score lines.

Turn designer paper to opposite side and align with the top left hand fence of the Scor-Pal. Score from the top of the paper to the top of the trimmed out triangle.  Rotate 90 degrees and repeat on remaining sides.
Burnish your second set of score lines.
Stamp your sentiment on the 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" piece of card stock.  Adhere with Scor-Tape to the 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of card stock and then adhere to the center of the pinwheel fold card.
Fold one flap down and continue in a clockwise fashion until you get to the last flap.  You will likely need to lift up slightly on the three flaps and tuck the fourth flap underneath.
Tie a generous length of ribbon around the center of the pinwheel fold card for embellishment.
Give this tutorial a try or pick another project.  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.

Using It- Patterned Paper for Lisa

Hey there!  It's Thursday and that means that the Ways To Use It challenge is happening on Splitcoaststampers.  My teamie Lisa is today's hostess and her challenge is to use some patterned paper on her card.

I pulled out some colorful, happy papers and set to work on the Viva La Verve sketch for April.  I didn't notice the measurements on the sketch and changed the shape on a couple of elements.  Other than that, I think I was pretty true to the sketch.  

I took a personal day from work today, so I will be getting a few things done around the home front.  I hope your day is going as well as mine!

Thanks for stopping by!

Here's my pinwheel card made of a lovely floral paper all tucked in and tied neatly with a bow.  You really do have to lift a bit on the other flaps to tuck in the fourth flap like the tab on the top of a cereal or cracker box.  Down below, you can see my pinwheel card open with its message inside (and some more flowers).

We are flying through the month!  Here we are at the half-way point and I have the mid-month tutorial for the Scor-Pal "More Than Once Score" challenge.  Our theme is All Things Bright and Beautiful, so I worked in some paper that I think is beautiful and the color red.  The rest of the team made some amazing projects, so be sure to check them out on the Scor-Pal blog.  I'm hostessing this month and so I made this cute little gift box with a card-stand.
For this project, you will need: 
  • Scor-Pal

  • One 6" x 6" piece of paper
  • One 3" x 3" piece of paper
  • craft knife
  • paper snips
  • stamp set
  • ink
  • patterned paper, as desired
  • embellishments, as desired
Place the 3"x 3" piece of paper (could be patterned paper) in the Scor-Pal. Score at 1/2" and 2 1/2". Rotate paper 90 degrees and score again at 1/2" and 2 1/2". Quick tip: Place the pattern you would like to see face down in the Scor-Pal.
Burnish the score lines.  Trim on the score lines to 1/2" on opposite sides of the square.  
Adhere Scor-Tape to the newly created 1/2" tabs on opposite sides of the square.
Remove adhesive backing from the tabs and fold in to create the gift box lid.
Place the 6"x 6" piece of paper (could be patterned paper) in the Scor-Pal. Score at 2" and 2". Rotate paper 90 degrees and score again at 2" and 2". 
Burnish the score lines.  Trim on the score lines to 2" on opposite sides of the square. 
Adhere Scor-Tape to the newly created 2" tabs on opposite sides of the square.
Remove adhesive backing from the tabs and fold in to create the gift box bottom.
Place Scor-Mat into the Scor-Pal.  Place 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base into the Scor-Pal. With a craft knife and ruler, trim out a 2" by 2" section. Cut down 2" from 2 1/2" and 4 1/2".  Cut from 2 1/2" to 4 1/2" on the 2" mark.
Embellish your gift box as desired and place into the card stand.
