So if you're not a card, envelope, or box maker (and there are so many cute things you can make with the Scor-Pal's help), you might be wondering if you need a Scor-Pal. I'm here to say yes, you do! You can make all sorts of other things, you can score ruffles, make medallions, 3-D stars, and like I did here on my layout, you can add lines to your design, leaving them as is or sanding them. It's a fun design element. And with the newest version, you've got every measurement you need, without having to move your paper. Mine is an older product without all the markings you see below, so it was fun to try out this newer one:
If you need a basic understanding of the tool, please check out this page, lots of good practical tips here.
I placed the side of paper I wanted for my design face down in the tray and scored a line every inch. I then flipped the paper 90 degrees and repeated. I now had a perfectly spaced grid.
I flipped it over and lightly sanded the grey concrete side of Urban Traveler's Grey Concrete/Chevron (#2917). I think this may be one of my most favorite pieces of patterned paper ever.
I moved on with my design about Dyfi Furnace in Wales, but it wasn't working with all the photos I had so I decided to make a little accordian pull out behind my main photo to house the other two photos. This is another thing the Scor-Pal made easy, I just scored a couple of lines, folded, and had places now for the extra photos of my parents near the giant mill wheel.
So there you have a couple of more ways to use the Scor-Pal in your scrapbooking. It's not just for cards and gift boxes, but now that I make cards a lot more than I used to, I use it for them too :)
