May SCS Creative Crew Catalogue Focus – Scoring Tools


In keeping with our “Anything But Average” theme this month, the Creative Crew Catalogue Focus is our scoring tools.

Use one or all of these scoring tools to add interest to a Gatefold Card:

Simply Scored Tool

Simply Scored Borders Plate

Simply Scored Diagonal Plate

I’ve used the Simply Scored tool and the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate on my Gatefold card.

Stippled Blossoms 001 - Front

It doesn’t show up well in the photos, but I have used the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate on the Whisper White cardstock to create a diamond background.

Stippled Blossoms 001

I love how this turned out, and I know my ladies will love making it in class.

Stippled Blossoms 001 - Inside

I’ve kept the inside very simple, letting those gorgeous Stippled Blossoms speak for themselves.

March SCS Creative Crew Holiday Focus

SU-Creative-CrewThere are 3 holidays in a row in March: St. Urho’s Day (March 16), St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) and Jana’s birthday (one of the fabulous SU Creative Crew challenge hostesses)! For this challenge, make a birthday card in purple (for St. Urho) or green (for St. Patrick). Use a technique or layout that you love!

Field Flowers 004 Front

I’ve gone with a purple card, but there’s a touch of green in there too!  The technique I love, but seem to forget about, is 2 step stamping.  You are always guaranteed to get a wow result with this simple technique!

Field Flowers 004 Inside

I have kept the inside simple, letting that gorgeous flower do all the talking!
