Better grab a coffee boys and girls cos this is gonna be a long one!!
Right are you all set? Today is the first day of the new Autumn Mini Catalogue which is full of brand new goodies!! You can view a copy online by clicking the picture in the right hand column or Email me! to get a paper copy.
I am going to showcase my favourite new tool the Simply Scored Scoring Tool!
This card uses a brand new punch too, the Blossom Punch( 125603 $41.59 on page 21) It even has a matching stamp set. Look at the beautiful even score lines in that background!
This time I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to create Scored frames both on the card and on a frame I slipped partially behind darling Tess. I used one of three new Designer Series Paper packs – Attic Boutique ( 125407 $22.95 on page 17) – to make the flowers and background inside the frame of the card. We also got some fab new Texture Impressions Embossing Folders called Adorning Accents – 125601 on page 9 – I used a scalloped one on another piece of the Attic Boutique paper and then hand cut around it although there is a coordinating Adorning Accents Edgelits dies set that will cut it with a tiny scalloped edge on the scallops. Sorry, bad explanation so you will just have to look at the Mini to see what I mean!
This last card is a really fun one with lollipops on it. I have again used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to make a grid pattern background also to make a border on the Whisper White cardstock matting the Baja Breeze embossed strip. Yes that is another of the embossing folder borders in the set. Its a set of 3 for $20.50 so not bad value at all. The cute paper is from another of the new DSP packs – Sweet Shop 125408 on page 23 which is $29.95 It is a specialty pack and features some embossed papers including the heart one Ive used here.
Did you notice the “bite” out of the lollipop?? Before I cut the sticks I scored in a line to give them a slightly raised look, which is a bit hard to see in the photos, and then cut the strips.
And now for the bonus just because Im an awesome person : ) and very modest too you know I have created a 4 page PDF of info, tips and pics to help you get the most from your Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I havent gone into making boxes at all but have lots of ideas for how to make background papers, including diagonal ones and frames so click here to download your copy. I hope its helpful. Of course if you would like to order your own Simply Scored Scoring Tool feel free to give me a ring or Email me! to place your order.
PS if you would like to have an In Home workshop for you and some of your friends to try out some of the new product then now is a great time to book!!
