Now for today's first project brought to you by Scor-pal Designer Virginia Nebel

So happy to be playing along in the Momenta and Scor-pal blog hop. I chose Momenta's bright and cheerful Kailedoscope collection. I love all the summer florals in this collection and the pretty coordinating stickers, diecuts, and acetate 3D embellishments.

I made a couple of projects. The first is a tri-fold card using Scor-pal's convenient brochure score markings which are the inverted triangles along the ruler. Your starting paper size is an 11x 8 1/2 inch piece of paper, score on the two triangles and you end up with an perfect tri-fold card base giving you ample room to decorate and play up your card theme.








My next project was a total experiment!  I used the other Scor-pal reference markings along the top ruler and created a pocket fold card.  I like the pocket because it has a nice, crisp, clean fold, and is deep enough to securely hold a gift card.


Here are the instructions:

Start with an 11 1/2 X 5 1/2 inch piece of paper.  Place on the Scor-pal tool and score at the dot, star, and inverted triangle and fold as shown in the photo.




You have created a true pocket and all you need is to add a 1 inch border so that the front which you can tuck nicely under the flap and glue down a clean edge.  Add glue on the inside edges of the pocket to secure the sides together.


Embellish and add your gift card.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have enjoy all the wonderful creative ideas from the Momenta and Scor-pal teams!

And the final project of the week by Scor-pal Designer Tami Mayberry.

Today I have an easy project to share that makes a fun and inexpensive gift for almost anyone--a triple easel desk display. Of course, while you're at it, I'm sure you'll want to make one for yourself! For this particular project I used my Scor-pal and a variety of products from Momenta's vacation line. I love the patterns in this line as they lend themselves well to non-vacation projects as well.


Supplies needed:
12x12 sheet of card stock for base
Scor-pal scoring board
Adhesive
decorative papers and embellishments of your choice

Step by step instructions
(followed by cutting and scoring diagram)

Begin with a 12"x12" piece of card stock. Trim it to 12" x 8". (Keep the remaining piece for use later in the project) 

With the 8" edge at the top of your scoring board score at  the 4" mark.

Rotate the paper 90 degrees and score at the 4" and 8" marks stopping at center score.

Create a diagonal score line on the two outer squares going from the top inner corner to the bottom outer corner on each end square. The is easily done by placing the corners at the 6" line. (marked at the bottom of the Scor-pal with 2 arrows)
Score the center block horizontally at the 2" mark.
Next cut the vertical lines that were made at the 4" and 8" marks and fold the panels in half inward.
Now simply cut the 12" x 4" piece into three 4" squares. Attached to base and decorate.
(Panels will be attached at bottom corners/edges)

Here is a quick recap of where the cut and score lines are located:
To finish the display place buttons or other 3D embellishments on the base to keep panels upright. and decorate.

Once decorated this project is the perfect size for post-it notes or used as a photo display. I chose to use it as a motivational post-it note holder by adding some quote stickers from the vellum sticker collections. I thought they went well with not only the typical form of travel but travel through life.

Here's a close up of those:

I don't have a blog to link to, but I can tell you what I make most with my scor-pal is envelopes. I love the versatility you have when you make your own envelopes. But, after this week, I've been inspired to try lots of other things with my scor-pal...can't wait to try.

I LOVE different--I love the trifold idea!!! I need one of your tools for sure.

jusaweecatnap said...

I like the sheer simplicity of the tri-fold card. But the one that really catches my eye, for it's uniqueness, is the triple easel display. Seems like a fun idea to play around with.

Jennie Bobbins said...

I love how that card can prop itself up! Great tutorial.

I like to make funky fold cards, especially for people I know will appreciate them and not toss them in the trash. These are going into the file to make for such times and people. Thanks for the fun week of projects. It's been full of great ideas, tips and techniques.

Lucy said...

If you like mini-albums, any of them from Laura Dennison's blog (http://followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com) and UStream channel (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/followingthepapertrail) are great. I don't remember a project when she HASN'T used her Scor-Pal. Also, here's a favorite card made with the Scor-Buddy from Sandy at OWH: http://operationwritehome.org/funky-fold-tutorial/

I'll be checking out everyone's favorites to see what I've missed. Thanks EVERYONE for the great ideas.
