Scor-Pal's March More Than One Score - Soft and Subtle

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of March is Soft and Subtle.  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 Pop Up Corner card! 
This is the view of my project all closed up.  It looks like a regular square card, right?  Get ready because here comes the surprise.  
When you open up the card, the insert unfolds to stabilize the card!  It's really easy and fun to create.  With Easter coming up next month, you could work ahead through this Soft and Subtle theme.  I hope that you will play along.  If you need some ideas or want to find some inspiration, you can check out  the Projects on the Scor-Pal website or our Pinterest board.  

Thanks for stopping by!

February Pinspired!

Hey there, crafty friends!  It's come around again to my turn to host a "Pinspired" post.  I hope you find this one fun and easy when you need a little bit of cute packaging.  Of course, it fits in with this month's More Than One Score challenge as the theme is Anything Goes.  There's a Design Team call this month too.  This is your chance to shine, if you have ever entertained the idea of joining a design team.

Without any further chatter, here is my Folded Tea Holder. I've also seen it called a Double Pocket Treat Holder.  When I saw these projects on Pinterest, I knew that I could put my Scor-Envi to use.
For this project, you will need:
  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Envi
  • One piece of 6" x 6" double-sided designer paper
  • Hole punch
  • 7" length of ribbon
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Card stock scraps for embellishment
  • Dimensional adhesive
Insert Scor-Envi into Scor-Pal.  Place 6" by 6" piece of designer paper into Scor-Pal with the top at  the 6" score-line with its right edge against the Scor-Envi. Be sure to line up the bottom with the 6" score line as well.  Score at 6".
Flip the designer paper over and line up top and bottom with 6" mark.  Again the right edge will be aligned with the Scor-Envi.  Score at 5 1/2" and at 6 1/2".
Flip the designer paper over and rotate 90 degrees.  Line up the top and bottom of the designer paper with the 6" mark.  The right edge will be aligned with the Scor-Envi.  Score at 4 1/2" and at 7 1/2".
Burnish all of your score lines.
Fold in the sides scored at 4 1/2" and 7 1/2".
Fold the top half down, covering up the sides.  This fold happens on the 6" score line.
Fold the front and back half up on the 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" score lines.  This creates a pocket on both sides and exposes the other pattern on the designer paper.
Punch a hole in the top, through both sides and secure with a ribbon. Embellish as desired.
Fill the front and back pockets with any treat.  Pictures here are single tea bags.  Ghiradelli Chocolate or other square chocolates would also work well for this treat holder.

I hope you try your hand at this fun little project.  Thanks for stopping by.

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

Hello Crafty Friends! It's time again for another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge. The theme for the month of February is 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 sweet treat Valentine box! 
Here is my sweet treat Valentine box filled with chocolate truffles.  My box is 2" by 2" by 2" and fits about five of the truffles.  I have my box lid all decorated and propped up against the box.  This is such a simple box design that you could make it any size.
Here's a close up of the box top.  I embossed and edged a smaller panel to pop up on the lid.  I further embellished with a couple of die cut hearts from some fabulous DCWV Shimmer and Rose Gold papers.  I popped the hearts up from the embossed layer too.
Finally, you can see how my lid fits on the box and the fun washi tape that I used to further jazz up the lid.  I hope you will play along this month, as it's really special.  We are having a Design Team Call.  You can find the instructions on the Scor-Pal blogTry 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.

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.

Thanks for stopping by!

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. 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.

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. 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.
