First up. Scor-pal Designer Tya Smith.

 Hello there - Tya here with my take on the Scor-Pal and Pink Paislee Promotion Week. Pink Paislee products can always be counted on to be super on- trend and just plain beautiful. I love all the bits and pieces that we got to design with! Thanks Pink Paislee!

We were given some beautiful papers and embellishments from the Portfolio and Artisan collections. What I loved the most about working with these lines besides the beautiful color palate, was the way that I could add color to my embellishments with different colors of inks. On the packaging on the Artisan Collection - it says you can "customize with color" - so I did just that! It was so fun to see the die cuts go from just plain black and white to whatever color of ink I added. Plus the die cuts (I had the ones with the hearts) all have a cute pattern on them as well. The hearts had a darling chevron pattern on them. It was super fun to see what pattern would pop out when I added my ink! If you love color and patterns as much as I do, try these products out!

The project I decided to share with you today is a cute, quick and simple little mini album. I got inspiration from seeing this mini- album on a blog and I did a little adjustment to the measurements. This little mini album was so quick to put together (the longest task for me was having to choose the papers and embellishments to decorate with). It simply is 4 score marks and a little cutting and you are done! 

6x12 inch black cardstock
10x10 inch white cardstock
Pattern Paper from Pink Paislee Portfolio Line
Embellisments from Pink Paislee Artisan Collection: Resistable Hearts , Words - Travel,  and Zig-Zag Ribbons 
small silver rhinestones (Martha Stewart)
Doily Stamp (Martha Stewart)
Sheer mustard ribbon
Light teal Bakers Twine
Yellow Chevron Ribbon
Mini Attacher

To make the base of the album:
Step 1:
Take 6x12 inch black cardstock and score at 5 3/4 and 6 1/4 (sorry mine looks like it buckled a little)

Step 2:
Take 10x10 inch white cardstock and score it a 5 inches one way and then turn and score at 5 inches on the other way. You should end up with 4 square sections.

Step 3:
Cut between the 2 squares on the left hand side of the paper.

Step 4:
Glue white cardstock to black cardstock base as shown.

Step 5:
To fold up the mini album, simply fold the top left square over on top of the right top square.

Step 6:
Fold this section over on top of the bottom right hand square:

Step 7:
Fold this section over to the bottom left hand square (the one that is glued to your base.)

That is all there is to it!

 Here is my album all decorated with the papers and embellishments. This album is the PERFECT size for all of those smaller photos that you may have, and would especially work great with all of those Instagram photos you have started taking! I received the travel stickers with my goodies and so I decided to add photos from our last cruise to the Bahamas! This little album was just the right size and honestly took me about 30 minutes is all to put together after I had picked out my photos and papers.

Next up, Scor-pal Designer Steph Ackerman.

Good morning, Steph here with a card using my Scor-pal and some fabulous papers from Pink Paislee's Portfolio Collection.

I loved the block of quotes on the Outstanding and Unbelievable papers so I designed a card to work around them.  As I wanted to keep my card simple to maintain the focus on these quotes,  I decided to created a scored background.

Scoring Tool:  Scor-pal
Pattern paper, chipboard: Pink Paislee
Cardstock: Bazzill, DCWV
Ink: Clearsnap
Punch: Fiskars

Cutting cardstock 5 1/2" x 11", I scored it in half to create the card.  Then, lining up the card diagonally on the #6, I began to score every 1/4" until I reached the edge of the card.

Next, I turned the card 180 degress so that I could score the other side of the card every 1/4".

This is the finished look of the card base. 

Cutting the Unbelievable paper into a 4" x 4" square, I created a base for the quotes.  I then took the elements I wanted to use and inked them with Clearsnap Ink before adhering to the square. This entire piece was then added to the card front with foam adhesives for dimension. 

Here's a close up of the grouped elements and the score lines.  The Artisian butterfly chipboard and brackets were fun elements that added some visual interest to the card.  To highlight the scored lines, I inked around the edges of the card so that the scored lines would become more prominent.

I don't usually finish the inside of my cards, but this Incredible paper was perfect for the inside.

For my next project, I created a tri-fold card which could easily double as a gift card holder. 

I cut the Amazing paper 6 1/2" x 8 1/4".  Placing the longest side at the top of the Scor-pal, I scored at  2 1/2" and 6 1/2".    I used a punch along the edge of the narrower piece to finish the flap.

I selected elements from the Unbelievable paper and used them as my interior sentiments, inking the edges and matting with cardstock. 

I love creating rosettes and the Scor-pal makes it so easy. Just cut a 1" x 12" strip of Amazing paper and score every 1/2". Once the rosette was completed, I added an Artisian Butterfly on top.

Finally I added the rosette to the center of the front flap and used velcro as the card's closure.

This next project is a mini post-it note holder.  The Unbelievable paper had just the right elements to use.

Cutting cardstock 3 1/2" x 10", I scored it at 4", 4 1/2", 5" and 9".

Fold on all score lines, creating an accordion fold for the bottom of the holder.

I used the Incredible and Unbelievable papers to finish this project, cutting and shaping the elements I wanted and then inking the edges.

For the interior, I adhered post-it notes and another element from the Outstanding paper.  A velcro closure holds the book together.

Thanks for stopping by today.
