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

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to December! Now we are at the end of the year!! I'm back with the Scor-Pal team for another More Than One Score challenge.  The theme for this month is Anything Goes. I chose to create for an obscure holiday called National Cocoa day. This month, I made a sweet little K-cup holder with a winter/cocoa theme. It's the perfect little treat for a secret Santa or pixie present. Don't forget to stop by the Scor-Pal blog for links to the other creations for this month.
That's just one little sheet of card stock and one piece of 6" x 6" patterned paper with some very strategic scoring and cutting.  A little embellishment makes it ready to give away.

I hope that you will play along with this month's theme, since it is so wide open!. My project was quick and easy to create. 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!

Scor-Pal's November More Than One Score challenge - Birthday or Fall

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to November! The year is still flying by!! I'm back with the Scor-Pal team for another More Than One Score challenge.  The theme for this month is Birthdays or Fall. I opted for birthday as that really opens up the challenge.  Of course, you will want to check back on the Scor-Pal blog mid-month for a tutorial.  This month, I made a cute, little storybook treat holder with a birthday theme. It's the perfect little acknowledgement for someone's birthday.  A bag full of nuggets will make many of these storybooks!
Here you see the little storybook treat holder closed up with a bit of twine.  I used some fun patterned paper with a little owl ready to party!  For a little more birthday emphasis, I stamped a small happy birthday sentiment and turned it into a speech bubble.
When the recipient opens up the storybook, inside they find a little sweet treat!  I wrapped these nuggets with the flip side of the owl paper which has all kinds of "happy" on it.

Thanks for looking!

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

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to October! This year continues to fly by!! I'm back with the Scor-Pal team for another More Than One Score challenge.  The theme for this month is Harvest/Fall or Halloween. This should be a fun challenge for sure. Of course, you will want to check back on the Scor-Pal blog mid-month for a tutorial.  This month, I made a sweet and spooky nugget box.  It's perfect for quick gift giving.  A bag full of nuggets will make several gifts.
The best thing about making your own little gifts like this is the personalization that you can do.  I would be remiss if I did not say that it is also a whole lot of fun along the way!  This is a basic box made to fit nuggets.  I was able to cover the nuggets with some scripty spell-like designer paper and a clear acetate sliding lid to show it off.  A simple punched embellishment finishes off my project.

I hope that you will play along with this month's theme. My project was fun and simple to create. 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!

Scor-Pal's September More Than One Score Challenge - Back To School

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to September! Goodness gracious, how did we get here. I'm back with the Scor-Pal team for another More Than One Score challenge.  The theme for this month is Back To School. This should be a fun challenge for sure. Of course, you will want to check back on the Scor-Pal blog mid-month for a tutorial.  This month, I made a corner bookmark.  It's just right for keeping your place in that required reading for class.
This was a very quick and easy project and can be personalized in a snap.  I made a little bookmark, but you could easily make it larger. The whole project starts with a square.  I thought of this project as I support reading at the elementary school where I work.  Sometimes, a cute bookmark might be the only reason a student picks up a book.  And...we want books in their hands!

I hope that you will play along with this month's theme. My project was fun and simple to create. 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.

Scor-Pal's July More Than One Score - Anything Goes with the option of Patriotic

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to July!  I'm back with the Scor-Pal team for another More Than One Score challenge.  The theme for this month is Anything Goes (don't you love those) with the option of Patriotic.  Of course, you will want to check back on the Scor-Pal blog mid-month for a tutorial.  This month I made a simple card with a kite fold on the front.
The kite shape opens from the bottom, near the tail to expand for the sender's message.  The construction was simple with six quick measurements and three scores.  The top corners of the kite push in and provide some nice dimension to the card.

I hope that you will play along with this month's theme.  Anything Goes is such a treat and gives tons of creative freedom, just make sure you have more than one score!  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.

Ways To Use The Negative

Man, it's been a long time since I posted a card from my Ways To Use It team.  But, I really like this one, so I decided to share it with you.  The challenge revolved around using negative space.  I die cut several flowers into my black base.  I did some faux stitching around the edge and mounted over a piece of purple glittery card stock.  

I found the unicorn stamp at Michael's in the dollar rack.  I knew that my daughter and her friends would like it.  I used it here because the sentiment is created out of the negative space in the silhouette.  I added some more faux stitching and popped it up over a piece of organdy ribbon.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!
