SCOR-PAL-is to the card maker what the paper trimmer is to the scrapbooker!
The slightly textured scoring surface is 12" x 12", with a raised fence at the top (ruler markings) and on the left and right side. This aligns your paper for perfect scoring. No more crooked cards! Grooves are across the board at different intervals. Besides the normal 1/2" and 1" intervals there are grooves at 2 1/8" for gate fold cards, at 4 1/4" for normal A2 cards, and at 3.666" and 7.333" for brochure folding (divides 11" paper into equal thirds) When you place your card stock on the scoring surface, you are able to do multiple scores without moving the paper. Grid cards, accordion folds, boxes etc are scored in seconds. The score lines result in crisp, accurate folds! At the 0 to 1" mark and 11" to 12" mark there are 1/8" markings. By proper paper placement this will allow you to score 1/8 " increments such as 1 7/8" The included scoring tool snaps into place at the top of the unit. It is always at hand. It has been specially designed to fit the grooves so the card stock can not be torn while scoring. Additional scoring tools can be ordered separately. Perfect tool for straight and diagonal line embossing on cards and scrapbook pages!
Copic Markers will be ordered in singles and sets.
Call to find out more, we can take credit card info over the phone.
We will be carrying these products in the store now, but they will be ordered in limited supplies at first, so it's a good idea to pre order what you want to ensure it is ordered just for you!

You know you're a scrapbooker when...
~You usually have a camera with you.
~You wonder if you'll ever get caught up.
~You have tools your husband doesn't know how to use.
~You pull buttons off old, unused, or outgrown clothes to use on a layout.
~You know who Lisa, Becky, Ali, Jennifer, and Tim are.
~THe clerks in your local scrapbook store know you by name.
~Your house is a mess because you've been scrapbooking all day.
~You know what CK, CKU, CKC, HOF, SOY, and KOTM stand for.
~You can spot an Elsie sticker faster than you can say Louis Vuitton.
~You check online galleries and blogs more than you check the news.
~You save the ribbon off Godiva chocolate boxes to use on your pages and cards.
~You change your child's outfit to match the paper you just bought...so you'll have the perfect photo to go with the paper.
~Your scrapbook bag is the first thing you pack for vacation, prompting your husband to mention something about your priorities.
~You know that scrapbookers don't lie, we embellish.
How do YOU know you're a scrapbooker??
Post a comment telling us how you know, and on Friday a randomly chosen comment will win a My Mind's Eye paper pack, containing 6 sheets of MME paper, 3 coordinating embellishments, and a pack of MME ribbon to match!~

I was inspired by this site to do this clean layout.I wanted to add some special journaling from our children so this is how I solved that:I used Penny Lane (My Mind's Eye) for the patterned paper, Making Memories paint, stamps and chipboard are from Technique Tuesday.
Here is also a Father's Day card. I used the patterned paper and ribbon by My Mind's Eye. The rub-on is by Karen Foster.
On this Graduation LO I also used Penny Lane for the patterned paper and diecuts. I used Thickers for the title, and Making Memories paint.
Christy has me working on an acrylic mini album and I am so excited about it. I will post that later this week. You all have to stop by Scraphappy and check out all the acrylic items you can make. Plus, I cannot wait for the new Basic Grey Lemonade line to arrive at the store. Just think of the scrapbooking possibilities.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!

- Fancy Pants "Buddies" (Fancy-free collection; Spiffy)
- Yellow Bazzil cardstock (I used scraps!)
- Green chipboard letters
- Stickles - Lime Green
- Cats Eye ink - Blue Iris
- 8 1/2 in. white ric-rack
- 4 white eyelets
- Other: Argyle mini stamp, Crop-a-dile, mini bookplate, green mini brads
Technique hint: To create a "shadow" effect with you cardstock letters, very carefully peel (w/your nail) your chipboard letters in half. Adhere the bottom layer of you letter first; then carefully adhere the top, or second layer, of your chipboard letter approximately 1/4 of an inch to the right of your first layer. Repeat for all remaining letters. (I inked the "bottom layer" of my chipboard letters with the same ink I used on the edges of my card as well as for my stamp. You don't have to do this! The "naked" chipboard look is fantastic as well!)
