More Than One Score at Scor-Pal #59 Floral Fantasy

It's time for a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and this time we want to see your "Floral Fantasy" creations
With Mother's Day in the US coming up on May 12th it is the perfect time to create something and enter it in our challenge!
For my project I created a Faux Wood Farmhouse style crate from just one piece of 12" by 12" cardstock and decorated it with faux flowers.
I created a YouTube video showing the process and all the directions are over there in the description box so you can follow along with me.

Project Recipe:
1 12" by 12" piece of cardstock
4" by 6" canvas from the Dollar Tree for the base (you can use cardstock or chipboard instead if you like)
Scor-Pal 1/8ths board
Ink for distressing
Floral Foam
Flowers and Greenery
Chalk board sign

Cut your cardstock into 2 pieces measuring 5" by 8" and 2 at 4" by 5".
Lay the 5" by 8" on the Scor-Pal board and but the shorter side to the top. Score at 4" and flip over the other side, still with the shorter side at the top, score at 1", 2" and 3", this will form the "boards" on the side of the crate. Flip the cardstock over again and the align the longer side to the top and score at 1" and 7". Repeat for the other piece the same size. At the bottom of the longer snip up to the 1" score line where the scores intersect and form a square, this will create a flap that makes it easier to fold to create the base. Burnish the 1" score lines that will form the flaps that attach the sides together.
With the smaller piece align on the Scor-Pal with the 5" side at the top, score at 4" and flip over, keeping the longer side at the top, score at 1", 2" and 3", repeat with the other piece, burnish the 1" flap on both.
Assemble the crate using Scor-Tape to attach the 4 sides together, Add the canvas as the base, it should fit perfectly inside. Add ink if desired to distress the joints and score lines that form the board on the crate.
Arrange flowers in the floral foam and add to the crate along with the sign.

I really hope you liked this, we have some fabulous projects from the team this month, please be sure to drop by and check them out and enter your "Floral Fantasy" at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal

Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge #53 Fall/Harvest/Halloween

A new month means a new challenge at More Than One Score at Scor-Pal and this time we are looking for your "Fall/Harvest/Halloween" themed projects.
You make an "Anything But a Card", a card with a fancy fold, anything as long as it has more than a single score and that you let us know where you used your Scor-Pal in the project.

For my treat holder I decided to combine Christmas and Halloween by making a Christmas Cracker style holder with a Halloween theme!

It is a pretty simple design and can be altered to different sizes for your needs.

I really hope you liked this and will go over to More Than One Score at Scor-Pal to see the other fabulous projects from our talented Design Team and will enter a project of your own!

A Gem of a Challenge #228 Halloween or Halloween Colors

I usually start with a happy line but today is different.
Sadly after 9 years Janet is closing down her Pink Gem Designs store and this challenge will be ending.
I cut down a lot on my papercrafting but stayed with this team as I just loved all the design team and Janet's gorgeous digi's
All is not completely lost though as she will continue to sell a limited portfolio over at her Pink Gem Etsy Store

So I'm sharing my final card for the A Gem of a Challenge and this final theme is Halloween/Halloween Colors

Card Recipe:
Image - Halloween Chloe
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Basic Grey
Sentiment - Karen Foster
Border Die - Die - Versions

It was bittersweet creating this card and saying goodbye to the ladies as teammates but we will still hang out on Facebook and will be following Janet on her Etsy journey.

A Gem of a Challenge #227 One for the Girls/Ladies

Happy Saturday everyone!
Today I'm sharing my card for the latest challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and the theme this time is "One for the Girls"
As is often the case, I chose a Chloe image and this time went with Chloe with Balloons as I thought she was so super cute!

Card Recipe:
Image - Chloe with Balloons
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper, Heart and Sentiment= Owl by Adorn It
Circle Tag - Making Memories
Bow - Offray

I hope you can see from the photo, I printed an additional copy of the balloons and colored them and put them on foam for a little touch of dimension to the image.

Now it is your turn, go and create a card for the favorite lady/girl in your life and come and share with us at A Gem of a Challenge, we can't wait to see what you come up with.
