Our first project this week comes from Scor-pal Designer Gini Cagle.


It's always fun to try different fancy folds on cards and the trendy papers from Pink Paislee's Portfolio Collection seemed perfect for this angular folded card.




WorldWin Cardstock
Clearsnap Smooch Spritz
Clearsnap Color Box Wild Hare Pigment Ink
Spellbinders Labels Twenty-One


Cut card stock base 6" x 12". With the long side against the upper fence, score at 3", and 9". Turn a quarter turn and score at 2".  Cut as shown below.



Score from the upper inside corner, to the lower outside corner on both sides.


Fold in, towards the center.



Fold the lower edge, back up towards the folded edge, so they line up , and fold using your Scor-pal tool.


Your card frame is now ready to embellish.

Ink all edges using grey ink.  Cover all panels on the card base with coordinating patterned papers that are cut 1/4" smaller than the card base.  For the center section of the card, cut a 6" x 6" piece of cardstock.  Trace the shape of the Spellbinders label around the top, and handcut, just the top edge. Cut the patterned paper with the same die. and layer it onto the base. Layer other paperson the card as shown and decorate with the Pink Paislee embellishments.

When the card is folded and ready for the envelope, this is how it will look.


When the card is opened to display, the fancy folds will serve as a stand, to hold it up.




Next up, Scor-pal Designer Lori Williams.

Hi Everyone, it's Lori here , I'm so tickled to be able to share this adorable picnic basket I made using Pink Paislee products and of course my Scor-Pal.  It's a perfect place to tuck a homemade goodie gift for that someone special. I will say Pink Paislee's paper is such a heavy weight you can make this basket with just their paper, no cardstock needed.  Let's jump right into the tutorial so you'll know how to make your own.


Other Products Used: Distress Ink, Liquid Pearls, Distress Markers, Velcro Fasteners

Step One: Cut designer cardstock 7" x 8 3/4 " and score on all four sides at 1 1/4"


Step Two: On all corners score from the intersected line of the first score to the corner and fold mountain up as the shown picture.  Once you have it scored you'll want to be sure you crease your corner line well with your Scor-tool for a crisp edge.



Step Three: Apply your super strong Scor-Pal Tape to the inside of the mountain folds and also along one side and glue the mountain together and then to the interior of the box.



Step Four: Cut strip of designer paper to 1 " x 7 " and score at 1 1/2 " x 5 1/2" and fold.



Step Five: Using your Scor-Tape adhere to the middle of your basket.  This is going to add strength but will also give a base for you top.



Step Six: Cut your designer paper 7 1/2" x 4 1/8" and score at 3/4" , 3 1/4", 4 1/4" and 6 3/4".  Fold your  end scores up and your middle the opposite.  Apply tape down the middle of the top and adhere to the middle bar/base of your basket.



Step Seven: Cut a strip 2 " x 10 1/2" and score at 1/2' and 1 1/2" and fold inward and glue together.  Apply handle to the outside of your basket and decorate as desired.
