Scor-pal & American Crafts Blog Hop!







Happy St. Patrick's Day! 


It's another fun-filled day here on the Scor-pal blog. We've teamed up with American Crafts for an exciting hop that will show you a variety of scrapbook pages, cards, and other creative projects created with a Scor-pal scoring board and American Crafts products.

For a sweet taste of things to come, Scor-pal Designer Gini Cagle has created this special project for today:





When I saw all of the adorable accessories that went with the Garden Cafe line, I knew that these little paper strawberries would be a fun way to welcome spring!

   


The strawberry template came from the Whiff of Joy blog. I just used the template, and scored all of the folds with my Scor-pal. I used a Crop-o-dile to punch the holes at the top of each "petal" and then Scor-tape held the tab firmly in place. The Twinery's Baker's twine was used to lace the top together. The strawberry top was made using a Punch Bunch Cherry Blossom punch instead of the template provided.. The strings were drawn together and pulled through the leafy top, and tied in a bow.

The box that holds the strawberries was made using the Christmas Treats Basket Tutorial from Scor-pal. It is such a quick but cute basket to put together, and was a great canvas to add some of the American Craft dimensional stickers.

Thanks for sharing, Gini! 
Due to an over-site on my part, Gini's blog was missed when the hop list was set up. So, be sure and leave her some love here on this post or stop by her personal blog and say hello. ;)


Now that the creative ideas are flowing, start hopping for even more inspiring ideas!

First name on the hop list: Corrie Jones

And, just in case you get a little lost or simply want a list of all the blogs up front, here is the order of the hop:



You'll want to make sure to stop by every blog along the way including the American Crafts blog because there are several prize drawing to enter as you go! 

Once you finish don't forget to come back here and leave a comment to enter for a chance to win your favorite new line from the Winter 2012 American Crafts release as well as a Scor-Pal to make the creating super easy!



We'll randomly select one winner on Friday March 23rd and announce them with that day's post. 

Have fun hopping and good luck one and all!

What a wonderful and fun blog hop,
But sadly I am at the last stop!

So many amazing projects along the way,
To inspire us and make our day!

The Scor-Pal is an awesome tool,
And in my scraproom, it would rule.

American Crafts has fabulous paper galore,
And I could use so much,much more.

I would love to win some AC paper and the very clever Scor-Pal
Because it would make me one happy crafty gal!
