Scor-Pal No More Shims Embossing Mat!

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Today I would like to tell you about a fabulous product sold exclusively by Scor-Pal! The top selling No More Shims Embossing Mat has taken embossing with the Cuttlebug from Provo Craft and the Sizzix Big Shot Machine to a new dimension. You can now emboss things such as leaves, sequin, lace curtain and lots more ordinary household materials to make great embossed backgrounds!

When putting one of your Nestabilities through and even your Impressabilities you will see the huge difference it makes. You can run coins and charms through and make your own embellishments by embossing them on to craft foil.(up to the thickness of a quarter.You can flatten bottle caps with the mat in both the Cuttlebug and the Big Shot. You can flatten up to 6 aluminum caps at a time. All instructions included with the mat for the Cuttlebug and the Big Shot.

*Do NOT use this mat in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur Machine or Wizard Machine . It is to thick and can break the machine, so please use the Tan Embossing Mat from Spellbinders for embossing in those machines.

Please note you cannot run coins , bottle caps etc through an electric machine (such as the Sizzix Vagabond by Tim Holtz), but you will be able to emboss lace , leaves etc .

I thoroughly enjoyed the two gentlemen who developed and demonstrated this handy mat at CHA. Their English accents along with their enthusiasm for their product made them so much fun to listen to! I love the No More Shims Embossing Mat in my Cuttlebug Machine because I no longer have to use a chipboard shim with my embossing mat (which is one less layer that I have to worry about) so I am totally happy!

Take a peek at our video from CHA to see what I mean!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

New Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lace Border Die!

Friday, July 15th, 2011

I am so thrilled to introduce the Decorative Lace Border Die! It is a custom Heartfelt Creations Die manufactured by Spellbinders. This die coordinates with the Wedding Collection stamps. This die has more intricate details, so if you have a “loose” machine, you will have to cut a couple times. You will need to run it through your machine and cut once and then turn it 90 degrees and cut again.

I actually ran it 3-4 times through my Cuttlebug Machine then turned it before running it through 3-4 more times just to make sure! It is well worth the extra time it takes to cut it out! You will want to have either a QuickStik from QuicKutz, Pick Me Up from Silhouette, or pair of skinny craft tweezers to more easily poke through the holes! I love this die!

Since this is the season for weddings, I created an A2 wedding card using the Decorative Lace Border and Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose Scroll stamp set. I scored my card stock using my Scor-Pal for an accurate fold. I used 1/8″ Scor-Tape along the main lines of the die cut and ribbon to place on my card. A little chalk to add color to the roses then I used foam adhesive squares just on the top of the scroll to give the some dimension.

 

I don’t consider myself a designer, but I definitely have fun trying! I love playing with all of the fantastic products we carry and showing off the finished project! My family gets pretty tired of me showing them. They tell me it’s fine without even looking at it! Can you relate? I thought so! Of course I’m the mom, so I rant an rave over their stuff! I guess that is just how it goes.

I hope that you all have a great weekend! Better get lots of sleep, because we will have lots to show you next week after CHA! You may have to stay up nights just to see all the new stuff!!!!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Stuck On Adhesives?

Monday, April 18th, 2011

I get the question quite frequently about what adhesives to use. Well, that all depends on what type of project you are doing and what your preference is! We carry a variety of adhesives, such as 3L Scrapbook Adhesive, Scor-Tape, and Beacon Adhesive.

Lets start with 3L Scrapbook Adhesives! We carry Repositionable and Permanent Mounting Squares, E-Z Dots Repositionable Adhesive, E-Z Runner Permanent Tape, E-Z Runner Permanent Vellum Adhesive and Photo Corners in several color choices! These are fantastic for mounting Photos, paper to paper, or vellum to paper, among other things!

I can’t imagine paper crafting without Scor-Tape! We carry all sizes from 1/8″ rolls(currently on back order) to 8 1/2 x 11″ sheets! If you like working with ribbon, I guarantee that you will fall in love with this stuff! I think it is the best double sided tape on the market! There is no easier way to apply ribbon! The rolls come with 27 yards per roll! It is easy as well as clean! No messy glue sticking to your fingers!

Beacon Adhesives Zip-Dry Paper Glue is fast drying for fast results on almost all paper types & scrapbook embellishments such as rhinestones, beads, and glitter. It never wrinkles paper and dries crystal clear. It is mistake-proof and removes easily when wet without leaving any residue. Zip Dry bonds metal stampings, beads, glitter, wire and other embellishments to paper. It is acid and lignin free for archival quality. It has a special precision applicator top for accuracy. One bottle of Zip Dry goes for 2000 inches!

Hopefully, this will help answer some of your questions! I personally use all of these products and they are all fantastic! If you are just beginning to get into paper crafting, or a consider yourself a pro,  adhesives are a must have!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Introducing Sizzix Decorative Strip Mini Paper Rosettes!

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

This Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die Mini Paper Rosettes from Tim Holtz is such a fun die! I love how it is so easy to cut out and fold! I think I could cut out rosette flowers all day!Just make sure that you have a good strong adhesive to hold them together!

You receive two different sizes of rosettes: 2 1/8″ and 1 3/4″. Each Decorative Strip die measures 12 5/8″. It coordinates with the Decorative Strip Die Paper Rosette which shape measures approximately 2 5/8″.

For my Thank You card I used one of the Spellbinders Grand Big Scalloped Ovals, then used my Scor-Pal to score down the middle to make my fold for the card.  I used the Mini Paper Rosettes Die to make my flowers, then used Spellbinders Foliage to make my leaves! The butterfly is from the Fanciful Flight set. I finished it off with stamping my phrase from the From My Kitchen stamp set from Just Rite Stampers onto my paper then cutting it out with a die from Floral Doily Accents set. Add a couple of pearls and dew drops and it is done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m sure that your imagination can think of lots of possibilities with these babies!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Just Rite Stampers New Releases Are In!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

It always amazes me when we receive new product like the new Just Rite Stampers new stamp sets! The designs just keep getting better and better! Their ideas and talent entice us to break our resolve of “not spending another dime on our hobby until we’ve used what we already have”! How can we stay away? WE CAN’T! Of coarse, we never really were committed to that stupid resolve anyway! There are just to many wonderful new products coming out that inspire our creativity!

The latest from Just Rite include Charmed, Birdhouses, Heart to Heart, Hugs to You, and more, including Elegant Frames and Birthday Celebrations which I used on the projects below. These stamp sets coordinate with Spellbinders dies to create a fabulous stamped image!

For more info on what stamp sets go with what dies, we have Just Rite and Spellbinders Compatibility Charts on our BLOG page that will help you! I just love compatibility charts! They are so helpful!

Now on to our projects for the day!

As mentioned, I used the Birthday Celebrations for this first example. I used markers to color the image, then cut it out using a template from Spellbinders Standard Circles #6 die. I placed it over the #4 die from the Eyelet Circles set cut from the DCWV Whimsy Mat Stack which is also what I used for the rest of the card. I applied 1/8″ Scor-Tape around the circle and between patterns on the card and applied puckered 1/4″ ribbon.  If I had a brain last night (which I didn’t) I would have run the ribbon through my sewing machine to gather it instead of painstakingly doing it by hand! DUH!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since I was brainless for the first card, I was not going to complicate the second! I wanted something a bit more masculine, so I went with paper from the Natural Mat Stack and Natural Solid Cardstock Mat Stack. I used the Elegant Frames Stamp Set which coordinates with Spellbinders Labels Ten. I then put it on a frame from the Labels Seventeen. Done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And there you have it! They work great with their coordinating die!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
