Playing with Scor-Pal

Good Morning!  Happy Sunday to you - I hope you're having a great weekend.  I know I am, I've been playing, relaxing and reading.  I really enjoy my Kindle Fire.

Here's something else I've been enjoying... playing with my Scor-Pal and products.  I have been lucky to land a guest design spot!  I cannot tell you how thrilled I am about this.  But I'm a bit intimidated, too.  How am I going to come up with great projects to share with you?  Well, I'll do my best.

I started here....


I went calendar crazy with the start of the New Year!  I'm sorry that picture isn't so pretty, but wait til I show you the calendars individually.

This was the first one I did.  Now I found a You Tube video by Caroline Buchtine (here).  Now what she created were great, but I felt it needed a bit more stability.


So here's what I did.  I started with a base piece of card stock that measures 7 x 9 1/2.  Then on the Scor-Pal, score at 1, 4 1/2, 8 and 9 inches.  Fold at your score lines, all mountain folds.  The 1/2 part will be a valley fold.  Then apply Scor-Tape along that edge and adhere to close up the tent.  I hope that makes sense.  And then decorate.

I then took it further.  This calendar measures 5 1/2 inch square.


And then one more.  This one I followed the sketch for MFT's Guest DT challenge.


This one measures 4 1/2 inch square.  I feature MFT stamp set Clearly Sentimental about Audrey Hepburn, Die-Namics Mini Royal Roses, Die-Namics Fishtail Banners and the dies that came with the new Genius Ultimate Platform.  I'm not sure I like the Genius Ultimate Platform, but I like the dies that came with it.

I do hope you enjoy my calendars and try making one for yourself.  Oh!  The calendar pages came from Pinecone Press.
