"More Than One Score" Challenge #15 - Mother's Day/Special Lady

Welcome to the 13th Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!
We love showing our projects to you and now it's your chance to show your creations to us!
Each month we will have a different theme and you will have a month to create and enter your projects. As well as the theme you will need to make "More Than One Score" and tell us where you used the Scor-Pal on your project. So a single fold card won't count but an Easel, Gatefold, Stair Step, etc will :) Also we love to see your "Anything But a Card" projects, just as long as you make "More Than One Score"
We have a very current theme this month, "THEME and More Than One Score".
Please note that you MUST include the theme as well as "More Than One Score", some people are not following the theme and therefore are not eligible for a Top 3 spot or the Prize, thanks. We have a nice set of samples from the Design Team, just click on their names to go to their blogs for more details on their creations.
The challenge ends at 10pm on May 31st and the new one starts on June 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on June 5th.
This months featured Design Team member is Toni so please go and take a look at her blog for a more detailed post on her project.

Hello Crafty Friends!  Here I am in May with another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.  This month's theme is Mother's Day.  We hope you create something for your mother or a special mother that you know.  Last month, I made a pop-up card and this month I have a different variation.  Today's card features a pop-up on the inside.  I promise that it is fun and easy.  Let's get started!
For this project, you will need:



  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • Scor-Mat
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock for card base
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock for insert
  • Additional card stock for layers on card front
  • Craft knife
  • Ruler
  • Paper snips
  • Stamps and ink
  • Markers for coloring
  • Rhinestone embellishments


  • Place the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card stock for insert into the Scor-Pal with the 8 1/2" side of the card stock against the top fence.  Score at 4 1/4" and burnish the fold.  Your folded insert will now measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" when folded.
     Place your Scor-Mat into the Scor-Pal and place your card insert with the folded side against the fence.  Cut slits 5/8" down at 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2" and 4".
    Open the card insert, like a book, and lay flat.  Score at 3 5/8" and 4 7/8" at the each side of the slits, as shown.
     Push the slits inside the card insert and burnish folds again.
     Open card insert.  The slits are now pop-up tabs.  Apply Scor-Tape to the front side of the pop-up tabs.  The pop-ups are now ready for mounting.
    Remove adhesive backing from the Scor-Tape and adhere letters.  In order to obscure the negative space created by the pop-up tabs, adhere the insert to a separate card base.  To create a border, close insert and trim 1/16" from the sides and bottom of the insert.  Do not trim the fold.
     Decorate your card front as desired.
    This concludes my tutorial for the May 2015 More Than One Score Mother's Day challenge.  

    Happy Scoring!

    Hello Crafty Friends!  I'm back with April's More Than One Score challenge and a tutorial.  April's challenge has a theme of spring and/or flowers.  We have had an early spring this year and it has been abnormally warm and dry.  Many of our flowers and trees are blooming early and inspired my card today.  Today's card is a fun pop-up card*!
     For this project, you will need:

    • Scor-Pal
    • Scor-Tape
    • Scor-Mat
    • 4 1/4" x 11" piece of paper for card base
    • 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" piece of acetate for pop-up tag
    • Craft knife
    • Ruler
    • Flower and word dies, leaf punch
    • Additional card stock for flower and sentiment
    • Liquid and dimensional adhesives
    • Embellishments as desired (ribbon and button)
    • Stamps and ink
    Place the 4 1/4" x 11" piece of designer paper in the Scor-Pal with the 11" side of the paper against the top fence.  Score the paper at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4" and 10".  

    Flip the designer paper over and find the scored line at 5 1/2".  With a ruler and a pencil, mark 5/8" from the top and bottom.  
    Insert your Scor-Mat into your Scor-Pal.  With your craft knife, trim away an opening between the two marks on the 5 1/2" score line.
    Burnish, or crease, all of the scored lines you made in the first step.  You will see the base of the pop-up card starting to take shape.
    Line the first and last 1" segments of the designer paper with Scor-Tape, as shown.
    Create your pop-up tag on the 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" piece of acetate.  Card stock would also work for creating the pop-up tag.  Insert the tag through cut out opening from the top of the card base.
    Remove the adhesive backing from the Scor-Tape from one of the 1" segments and secure your tag, making certain that your tag is centered in the opening and lined up with the bottom of the card base.  Remove the adhesive backing from the other 1" segment and secure it to the tag and the first 1" segment, creating the bottom of the pop-up card base.
     The pop-up card will now sit upright and you can embellish the card base as desired.
     Also, the pop-up card base folds down flat and will fit nicely into an envelope.
    This concludes my Pop-Up card tutorial made especially for the April edition of the Scor-Pal More Than Once Score challenge.  

    Happy Scoring!

     March "More Than One Score" Challenge: Organization

    Accordion File


    Instructions
    1.Find some card board you can use for the covers of the accordion file.  I used an old cardboard mailer box that I had in my stash of old packaging (yes, I have a stash of packing!).

    2. Cut two identical pieces to 6 1/4" x 9".

    3. Use patterned paper to cover the two piece of cardstock, making sure that the inside edges are covered about an inch and a half in as shown in the picture below, then set aside.


    4. Cut two pieces of card stock to 5 3/4" x 11", then score at the 1/2" mark, lengthwise, all the way across.

    5. Fold back and forth at each score line, to create the accordion part of the file.

    6. Cut a piece of card stock to 5 3/4" x 8 1/2", then score at 1 3/4" and 4".

    7. Fold on the score lines and add adhesive to the side flaps.

    8. Adhere center strip as shown below.


    9. Cut eight, 8" x 5 1/2" pieces of card stock to be the separators for the accordion.
    10. Adhere the two accordion pieces to one of the 8" x 5 1/2" separator pieces using Scor-Tape.


    11. Skipping every other fold, adhere the remaining 8" x 5 1/2" separator pieces using Scor-Tape.

    12. Adhere to outer cover using liquid adhesive.  Once one side is glued down, press accordion file down and adhere the second side by "closing" the cover of the file over it and pressing firmly.

    13.  You file is complete!

    14. To embellish my file, I added some velcro and created a cute flower clasp.





    Voila!  Thanks so much for stopping by and checking this tutorial out!  Have a wonderful day and I can't wait to see what organizational projects you are inspired to create!

    We also have another surprise for you, another new team member! We would like to introduce the fabulous Katie K (yes another Katie) aka Inky Angel and here is her first stunning project.


    Katie lives with her husband of 27 years and her teenage son in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She works as a lab technologist in a Microbiology laboratory by day, i.e. microscopic bug detective, and is an avid crafter in her spare time.
    Katie has enjoyed crafting all her life. She was introduced to card making by a Stampin'Up demonstrator in 2008 and then ventured into blogland in spring 2012. Internet has made learning so much easier and fun; the possibility is simply endless, thanks to all the crafters around the world.
    Katie's goals for 2015 are creating functional and practical projects and combining her past and present crafting skills in her creations. Learning new techniques/skills will be her on-going plans.
    Scor-Pal products are always must-have items in Katie's craft room. They have made crafting so much easier and fun. Katie is very excited to be part of the designing team and is looking forward to share her creations made with Scor-Pal products.
