american crafts + scor-pal blog hop

Welcome to the American Crafts + Scor-Pal blog hop! If you've made it this far, you are almost halfway done! I hope you are having fun hopping and that you are feeling inspired at all the neat things you can do with a Scor-Pal:)

For my project, I used the Scor-Pal a couple of different ways. I made a couple cards, along with some matching envelopes (which were incredibly easy with the instructions that come with the Scor-Pal!!).
I love the bright colors in the American Crafts Fresh Squeezed line:) They make this bright-color-lovin' girl so happy:)
It is hard to tell in the photo, but on the strip of green cardstock, I scored lines 1/4 inch apart...just to add a little more interest;)
I stuck the card in the envelopes I made and wrapped a strip of patterned paper around them (and yes...I did score. I wrapped some twine around the patterned paper and made an embellished accordion fold flower (again-so easy with the scor-pal!!) to go on the top:)
a pretty little gift to giveaway to a friend:)

Do you want a giveaway? I have a 6x6 Dear Lizzy Neapolitan paper pad to give to someone, so please leave me a comment!! I will leave the comments open until Friday, March 23rd, midnight CST.
