"More Than One Score" Challenge #23 - Pink or Blue It's Up to You!

Welcome to the 23rd 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 February 29th and the new one starts on March 1st. Winners and our favorites will be revealed on March 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!  It's February 1st and time with another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.  Our theme for this month is "Pink or Blue".  I opted for some blue this time. Today, I have made a mini favor box*.  It's just right for baby shower favors and can fit a little treat inside.  Let's get started!
For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • One 4 1/2" x 7 1/2" piece of card stock
  • Paper snips
  • Corner Rounder
  • Mini clothespins
  • Additional card stock for embellishments
  • Additional designer paper for embellishments
  • Square punches
  • Star punches
  • Stamps
  • Ink
  • Dimensional adhesive
Place the 4 1/2" by 7 1/2" piece of card stock in your Scor-Pal with the long side against the top fence.  Score at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2" and 6 ".
With the 4 1/2" side of the card stock against the top fence, score at 1 1/2" and 3".
Burnish all the folds.
Trim out the corners as shown.
At the opposite end, trim tabs to first 1 1/2" score.
Turn card stock once to the left and cut to the 1 1/2" score line on the first and second folds. Make cuts on both top and bottom.
Round corners on center tabs at both ends.
Adhere Scor-Tape to the first and third tabs on both top and bottom.
Pull the two center tabs up, remove adhesive backing and adhere flaps one at a time to center tabs.
Fold down top and bottom square tabs.
Pinch together the rounded tabs and secure.
Embellish as desired.
This concludes my tutorial for the February 2016 More Than One Score Challenge.

Hello Crafty Friends!  It's November 1st and time with another Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge.  I did a little bit of research and found out that November is Family Stories Month and Picture Book month.  I decided to go with a theme of books or mini albums.  Any project, with more than one score, along that line will be fabulous! Today, I have made a Book "Card".  I promise that it is fun and not hard at all.  Let's get started!
For this project, you will need:


  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • Two 5" x 7" pieces of card stock for accordion folded frame
  • Two 7" x 7" pieces of card stock for accordion folded frame
  • One 12" x 7 1/2" piece of card stock for book cover
  • One 5" x 7 " piece of card stock or designer paper for back of accordion folded frame
  • Two 1" x 7" pieces of card stock or designer paper for top of accordion folded frame
  • Two 1" x 5" pieces of card stock or designer paper for top of accordion folded frame
  • Rhinestone embellishments
  • Alphabet Letter die
  • Xyron Sticker Maker
  • Scalloped edge punch
  • Dimensional Adhesive
  • Wide grosgrain ribbon
  • Sanding Block

  • Place one 7" x 7" piece of card stock in your Scor-Pal and score at one inch intervals (1", 2", 3", 4", 5" and 6").  
    Flip over the same piece of card stock and score again at one inch intervals, this time starting with the 1/2" mark (1/2", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5 1/2" and 6 1/2").  Repeat the previous two steps with the second piece of 7" x 7" piece of card stock.
    Place the 5" x 7" piece of card stock in the Scor-Pal with the 7 " side against the top fence.  Score at one inch intervals (1", 2", 3", 4", 5" and 6").
    Flip over the same piece of card stock and score again at one inch intervals, this time starting with the 1/2" mark (1/2", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5 1/2" and 6 1/2").  Repeat the previous two steps with the second piece of 7" x 7" piece of card stock.
    Crease the folds on each piece of card stock, carefully, with the Scor-Tool and create the four accordion folded sides of the frame.

    Adhere a small piece of Scor-Tape to bottom fold of a 5" x 7" accordion folded side.
    Remove adhesive backing and attach to the bottom fold of a 7" x 7" accordion folded side.  Take care to line up the corners as neatly as possible.  You will repeat this will all four sides of the frame and when it is finished it will look like the pages of the book.

    Here is the finished accordion folded frame.  It might look a bit warped from all the handling, but it will be take care of in steps to come.
    Line one side of the accordion folded frame with Scor-Tape.
    Remove the adhesive backing and attach the a 5" x 7" piece of designer paper, right side down.

    At this point, you will want to decorate the inside of the accordion folded frame.  Then line the top of the frame with Scor-Tape.

    Remove adhesive backing and attach the 1" x 5" pieces of designer paper to the top and bottom of the frame.  Attach the 1" x 7" pieces of designer paper to the sides of the frame.  The designer paper in this example was punched with a border punch.

    Place the 12" x 7" piece of card stock for the book cover into the Scor-Pal with the 12" side against the top fence.  Score at 5 1/2" and 6 1/2".

    Crease the folds in the card stock to resemble the cover of  a book.
    Cut two lengths of ribbon, apply Scor-Tape to each of the inside flaps of the cover, remove adhesive backing and attach ribbon.
    Take finished accordion folded frame and apply Scor-tape to the bottom of it.
    Remove adhesive backing and secure to the right hand inside flap of the book cover.  A second piece was created to attach to the left hand inside flap of the book cover.
    Four small lines were scored into the spine and then sanded to highlight them.
    Finally, finish the front cover of your Book "Card" as desired.
    This concludes my tutorial for the November 2015 More Than One Score Challenge.

    Happy Scoring!
