Monochromatic Scor-Pal Project - April Challenge

Hi everyone!  Thanks for joining me today.  Scor-Pal has a new challenge for April, Monochromatic. Now you don't have to make a project, a card is good too, it just has to be one color family.

Here is my project.  I made a tea bag holder similar to an accordian file folder holder.

The size of my tea holder is 3" x 4".

To begin, cut two pieces of chip board 3" x 4", cover with a piece of designer paper, here I used a dark brown paper.   Cover the inside of the two pieces of
chip board with matching designer paper.
Next, the accordion piece on the bottom, it is made from a piece of card stock 2 3/4" x 1 3/4", score every 1/2" with the 1 3/4" side on the top fence, turn the paper over and score with the 1 3/4" side on the top fence again, every 1/2".  This will create a mountain and valley score pattern.  Attach this to the bottom of the two pieces of covered chip board.

Now we will create the envelopes for the inside.  Using vellum, cut four pieces 6" x 4 1/2".  With the 6" side along the top fence, score at 1 1/2" and 4 1/4".  Turn the paper so that the 4 1/2" side is along the top fence, score at 1 1/4".  Like below.

Next, cut the corner, as shown to create the envelope and attach 1/4" Scor-Tape as shown.

Close the bottom flap up and adhere the sides.  Cut a 1" circle on the top of the envelope to create a notch.  Create four and attach them together with a strip of Scor-Tape down the center.  Attach the chip board pieces to the front and back and decorate as you wish. 

For my decoration I made a rosette.  I cut a piece of designer paper 1" x 12" and scored every 1/2" mountain and valley style.  I also used Heart Swirl die from Magnolia Doohickey.

I hope you enjoyed my project today, I had lots of fun creating it!

Quick and Easy Christmas Card


Christmas is just around the corner and making a quick and easy card could never be easier!
Here is how I made my gatefold card.

First I started with a piece of card stock 4" x 8", a piece of designer paper 3 3/4" x 3 3/4", a memory box die cut from a sparkly glitter paper and a piece of designer cut with Spellbinders Nestibilities Label 16 Die, my Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape and a sparkly gem from Stampin Up!

Score the card stock at 4" and 6" to create your gatefold. 

Next, cut the piece of designer paper in half so you have two pieces that are 1 7/8" x 3 3/4".  Attach them to the front of the card with Scor-Tape.  Add the Label, sentiment, Snowflake die and gem and you have a nice and easy Christmas card ready for the giving!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season!!

Scor-Pal and Magnolia-licious Blog Hop - Christmas Gift Tags

Today Scor-Pal is teaming up with Magnolia-licious for a spectular Christmas Blog Hop!  Did you know that the two companies are related?  That's right, Diana Crick, the creator of Scor-Pal also owns Magnolia-licious.  Combine the two together and you get major success!  I have to say that they pair lovely together, don't you think?

If you came here from the talented Cabio Tse

I have made two projects for today's blog hop.  First is a Christmas tag. 

My tag was created using Tilda Catching Stars Magnolia Stamp and Star Tag Magnolia Doo-Hickey.  I also used Memory Box Die.  The designer paper if from Farm House Paper Company.

For my next project I created a cute and whimsical "Countdown to Christmas"!

I used a Maya Roads Christmas Tree and attached a box behind it to hold all of the stars. The tag was created using a computer generated sentiment and Magnolia Doo-Hickey Dream Tag.  The star was made using the Magnolia Doo-Hickey Star Tag.  I cut 24 of them and stamped with numbers.

The box on the back was made using a piece of designer paper cut 4" x 5".  Using a Scor-Pal, line the 5" side up with the top and left fence, score at 2" and 3".  Lining the 4" side up with the top and left fence, score at 1" and 3". Assemble the box by cutting the 2" and 3" scored lined on the 5" side up to the 1" mark on each side of the 4" side.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today!  Make sure to check out the rest of the hop, everyone has cooked up some wonderfully creative projects!

National Card Making Day! Halloween Hauntings

Hi everyone!  It has been so long since I posted anything but I am back and in the swing of things once again!  It feels so good to craft again!

Today is National Card Making Day, and I have a hauntingly happy Halloween card for you.  Here in Colorado it is cold and blistery so it is a perfect day to stay inside and get your craft on.

 I made a slightly altered Z-fold card and the use of my Scor-Pal made it a cinch to create!  I first created a Z-fold Card using a 6" x 12" sheet of cardstock, score at 3" and 6" to create the z-fold.  I then used a piece of 5" x 12" cardstock and scored at 6" to create the top flap and attached it to the right side of the card.

If you would like to see more uses for your Scor-Pal, head on over to the Scor-Pal Blog.  Today they are featuring cards made with a Scor-Pal.

Secret Little Box

Welcome!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Today I have created a Secret Little Box, inspired by THIS box by Norma Lee.  I just love little surprises and secret little hiding places, so I had a create a box that delivered both!  I hope you enjoy my tutorial.


Teresa Collins Designer Paper
Tilda with Eggs by Magnolia
Memory Box Die
Magnolia Doo-Hickey, Hearts and Swirls and Butterfly
Card Stock

Copic Markers:
Skin:  E00, E21, E11, E23
Hair: E41, E42, E43, E57
Clothes:  BG0000, BG10, BG15, BG90

Here are all the pieces you will need for our box.

12" x 6" piece of card stock
(3) 4 7/8" squares of card stock
(2) pieces of 3" x 3" card stock

To create the drawers, using a 4 7/8" square of card stock, score 7/8" on each side.  Construct your drawer.

Next, we are going to create the base for our secret box.  Using the 12" x 6" piece of cardstock, score at 1 1/2", 4 1/2", 7 1/2" and 10 1/2".  Cut out the middle section, 4 1/2" to 7" 1/2" as shown below.

Attach the 3" x 3" pieces of card stock to your box as shown below.  I decorated the panels before attaching them. 
Next attach the drawers into place.  When attaching top drawer, be sure not to attach to the front panel, this is where it will tuck in to secure the box closed. 

Here are a couple more views

Thanks for coming by!  Happy Spring!

Heart Pocket Card

Hello!  I am so glad you stopped by today!  Today I am featuring my own little twist on the Flower Pot Pocket Card.  It's very fussy and fancy, but that is just how I like it!


Memory Box Heart Die
Memory Box LaRue Heart Die

Wild Orchid Craft lace and flower

Start with a piece of card stock that measures 3 1/2" x 7 3/4", score at 3 1/4" (valley fold) and 6 1/2" (mountain fold).  Then fold as follows:

Next, I used a heart die from Memory Box for the "flower pot" part of my card.

I used a Scor-Tape Sheet and the LaRue Heart from Memory Box for the filigree pattern on the front of the heart.

Next I went crazy decorating with all sorts of hearts, some lace and ribbon and some sparkly paper!

Thanks for stopping by!
