More Than One Score Challenge #26 May Flowers

Welcome to the 26th Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!

First let me apologize for the lack of winners posted, I will announce the winners of the challenges from this year on the 5th (no top 3 I'm afraid) and then we will get back on track. We really appreciate all the entries

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, "May Flowers 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 me, Katie, and I really hope you like my project.

For mine I am showing a set I made a couple of years ago. I felt sure I'd shared it before but I scoured my blog and couldn't find it, but even after time this is still one of my very favorites and it is perfect for a Mother's day gift
I didn't photograph all the steps when I made it but it was made using the fabulous tutorial that Wendy Weixler shared at Split Coast Stampers, she also shares the template there so you can make one yourself.


Project Recipe:
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Paper - Chloe by 3 Bugs in a Rug
Border Punch - Daisy by Martha Stewart
Ribbon - Michaels
Butterfly Punches - Martha Stewart
Border Die - My Favorite Things
Banner Die - My Favorite Things
Brads - Target








What is great about using a paper with both sides patterned is that when the paper is folded over the form the visual "lid" it shows the coordinating pattern.





It is hard to show how the box opens in a photo but the tutorial I linked to has a video so you can see it clearly.

I'm happy to serve as the hostess of the Scor-Pal April "More Than One Score" challenge today.  The theme I chose for this month is "April Showers," and my card is a relatively simple, but interesting, one -- a Decorative Corner card.  Here it is:



Start by cutting the card base 5 1/2" by 8 1/2".  Score along the long side at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", and 6 3/8".



Cut a strip of the same cardstock 1" x 5 1/2" and score at 1/2".  Adhere strips of Scor-Tape on each side.


Adhere one side to the end panel of the card base.


Cut four panels of coordinating cardstock 5 1/4" x 1 7/8" and three panels of patterned paper and one panel of neutral stamped/decorated cardstock 5" x 1 5/8".  Adhere the patterned paper and stamped panel to the cardstock panels, as shown.



Adhere these panels to the card base.



Glue card base together, forming a "standing block."



Cut two 1" circles, score in the center, and apply a small piece of Scor-Tape to one half of each circle.




Attach the two circles to the front corner of your card, as shown.  These will serve as "hinges."


Cut two nesting die-cuts and decorate as you desire.  I chose ovals for my card.


Attach this panel to the two small circle hinges and complete your card.  I added a cloud to the left-hand panel.  The card will fold flat for mailing in an A2 envelope.



I hope you will join in the More Than One Score challenge.

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.
*Adapted from Sam Hammond Donald.  

Details: Stamps: Verve Thanks; Paper: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, DCWV The Boyhood Stack dp; Ink: Chocolate Chip; Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, paper snips, corner chomper, mini clothespins, square punches, star punches, dimensional adhesive.
