Pinspired - Inspiration from our Pinterest Board hosted by Dawn

Hi, everyone! I am Dawn, your Pinspired host this month. We look at the Scor-Pal Pinterest page, pick a project and re-create it, putting our own spin on it. I found this Cardfolio, by Toni Storie and thought I could make it fit this month's theme on the Scor-Pal blog, by giving it a Summer feel.

Here is my project:

I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, so when I think of Summer, I think of the ocean, lighthouses and beaches. When I came across this piece of patterned paper in my stash, I thought the large yellow shape looked like a sun, so it seemed perfect for this project.

To make this Cardfolio, start with a 12" x 12" piece of two-sided patterned paper. I used a piece of  My Mind’s Eye - The Sweetest Thing Paper. Trim off a 2" x 12" piece, and cut it in half to give 2 pieces measuring 2" x 6". Trim off another piece, measuring 1" x 12". Cut that in half, to give 2 pieces measuring 1" x 6". This leaves you with a 9" x 12" piece.

Place the 9" x 12" piece into your Scor-Pal with the 12" side along the top. Score at 1/2", 5 1/2", 6 1/2" and 11 1/2". 

With the 9" side along the top, score at 1", 1 1/2", 7 1/2" and 8".

On the 2" x 6" pieces, place the 2" side at the top and score at 1/2".

On the 9" x 12" piece, cut out the four corners. Cut on the 1/2" line until you get to the 1 1/2" line, and cut off. On the 5 1/2" and 6 1/2" lines, cut down to the 1 1/2" line. Cut on the 1" score line between them, leaving a 1/2" tab.

Round the corners of the four inside flaps.

Round the corners opposite the 1/2" scored side on the 2" x 6" pieces.

Adhere Scor-Tape to the 1/2" scored sections. I used a strip of 1/4" tape and a strip of 1/8" tape. I find this to be easier than using a 1/2" strip. That way, if your scoring is slightly off, you won't have tape going off the edge. On one of the 1" x 6" piece, adhere tape to the back. You can discard the other 1" x 6" piece, or use it for another project.

Remove the backing paper from the tape on the 2" x 6" pieces and adhere them to the 1/2" flap on each side of the project.

Turn the piece over, remove the backing paper, and attach the 1" x 6" piece in the middle section. This will reinforce the spine of the cardfolio.

Make sure all your folds are well creased. Add Scor-Tape to the small spine tabs and to both sides of each flap, as shown. 

Remove the backing from the tape on the small tabs and adhere them to the inside of the spine. Remove the backing from the left flap, fold the top and bottom flaps in, and adhere the side flap down. Repeat with the right side. This creates the pockets that will hold your cards and envelopes. 

Now you can add your embellishments. I stamped the sentiment and lighthouse, from the Gina K. Designs By the Sea stamp set, with Gina K. Designs Black Amalgam ink. I coloured the lighthouse with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: CR4, CR8, CR11, IG1, IG2, CT2, RB3, IG3, IG5, IG9, EB1, AG3, MB1, MB3, MB4, Blender pen, and fussy cut it. 

I cut out the sentiment with a die from the Gina K. Designs Decorative Label die set and used The Spectrum Noir marker MB3 to trace around the edge of the shape. I used the same marker to go around the edge of the lighthouse shape.

I added a piece of twine with some 1/8" Scor-Tape, and attached a button and a loop to keep the two sides together. I adhered the sentiment and lighthouse with some foam tape.

I put 3 cards and envelopes in each side, and there is still lots of room. You could also fill this with post cards or note paper to write to your friends and family when you are on vacation!

You still have a few days left to enter this month's challenge. Just make sure it has more than one score line and follows the theme of Warmer Days.

Mid Month Tutorial hosted by Isia

Hi folks. Isia here. Do you remember my last project for Scor-Pal June Challenge? Here's how I made my card.
First of all you need to make base card. Trim solid A4 cardstock to measure 14,5cm x 29cm and score using your Scor-Buddy at 14,5cm.
Trim pattern paper to measure 14cm x 28cm and score at 11cm, 13cm and 17 cm. Turn back side up. Mark 2cm up from the top and bottom with ruler and pencil. Score at 12,5cm, 15,5cm between pencil lines.
Using your exacto knife make a cuts along pencil marks between shorter scores (top and bottom).
Fold as shown on the picture below. Adhere Scor-Tape in the valley.
It's time to make an insert card. Cut solid cardstock at 10cm x 20cm and score at 10cm. Adhere your insert card to the valley.
Adhere your folded pattern paper to the inside panels of the base card.
Decorate and embellish front however you wish.

Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge June #60 Warmer Days

Welcome to the 60th Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!
We love showing our projects to you and now it's your chance to show your creations to us!
This month is really easy, we want to see a project with a "Warmer Days!" theme
You can choose to do a Summer project, use warmer colors, anything "Warm!!"
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 ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to get you eager to enter.

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.

I have again created a video to go along with my card so you can see the process from start to finish.
