Simply Scored- One Of My Most Used Stamping Tools!

I don't mention the Simply Scored Scoring System in my list of supplies I used for my cards, but I should! I use it for every card I make. Every. Single. Card!
Simply Scored122334

Simply Scored is a complete system for flawless scoring. Now you can create multiple scored projects or projects with many score lines, like rosettes. Just put place markers at the measurements you need, then score. Instructions included.

* Base size is slightly larger than 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) to accommodate 12" x 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) cardstock and paper
* Base plate has grooves etched every 1/8" (3.2 mm) ; you can choose how far apart you want the score marks to be
* Comes with rulers on the top and side: one standard left-to-right ruler and one zero center ruler, marked in 1/8" (3.2 mm) increments
* Includes three Place Markers and one Stylus
* Includes two storage compartments in the back of the base to hold your scoring tools

If you make cards, you need a tool to score them. They will fold so much better and the folds will look so much crisper!

If you like to make 3D projects, this tool makes it so much easier to place your score lines! Especially if you're making multiples. The little markers are so handy so show where you need to score each line!

If you don't have a Simply Scored, you should order one before Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st! Add another $20 and you qualify for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!

Rachel's Amazing Life Botanical Butterfly New Fold

We always have a Make & Take at our Stamp Share For Leader meetings. This year Rachel Tessman designed it. You may know her from the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club on Facebook. She's the one who started it. 

Here's my completed card, with the belly band

Here it is without the belly band

We started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 12" Whisper White card stock. Score at 4 and 8". Then we made a pencil mark 2" down on the 4" score and 2" up on the 8" score. Then we used the Stampin' Trimmer to score lines from those marks to the corners. Then it was just a matter of folding those "points" in opposite directions, adding the Designer Series Paper and rhinestones, and stamping the greeting. The folded card is 4 x 5 1/2".

Botanical Butterfly Duet Name Tag & Love What You Do Share What You Love Gift Packaging

I was looking through the pictures on my phone and found some I haven't shared yet! The Stamp Share For Leaders meeting was in January. I shared my swap HERE, but I didn't get a chance to show you our name tags:

The butterfly is punched from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration!) with the Butterfly Duet Punch. The punch has been so popular Stampin' Up! hasn't been able to keep it in stock! It is currently not available to order, but it should be available again in early April. And it will be carrying over to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!

Donna Griffith from Stampin' Up! was our guest speaker at the meeting. She is the DDM (Demonstrator Development Manager) for our area. She brought us all a gift and it was packaged in these cute little bags!

Everyone loves embellishments! Thank you Donna!
