Video Tutorial - Valentine Banner

Hello paper crafters!  Today I'm sharing a video tutorial on how to create this vintage style valentine banner.   I will be teaching you how to create the letters for the banner using a mirrow image on your computer.  You will also learn how to create the rosettes and everything else you need to know to create a valentine banner of your own!


I hope you like the video.  I'm still REALLY frustrated with learning how to edit.  I did the video once and then accidently erased it  : (  .  But I'm not going to give up.  I did learn a few new things this time .... like how easy it is to post the video on my blog.  I have another valentine project in the works to share with you soon.  It will be an altered heart shaped paper mache box.  I've also been working on my valentine ATC's.  Thanks so much for all your support and for checking out the video!

Have a great day!

Scor-Pal Tutorial

I wanted to try a creative use for my scor-pal, so I created scored lines diagonally and then sewed on seed beads at the intersection. What a fun tool!
Stamp set : Wee Ones from The Angel Company!

Scor-pal Tutorial
Today I decided I would focus on showing you how to create a criss-cross pattern using your Scor-pal and then re-post a couple of projects. Start with a square piece of cardstock (mine is 8"x8"). Lay your cardstock on your Scor-pal with each of two corners along the 6" line as shown below.

Now score lines 1/2" apart. Turn the cardstock so that the other 2 corners line up on the 6" line and score lines at 1/2" intervals. The result will be a criss-cross pattern on your 8" x 8" piece of cardstock. You can now cut this into smaller squares to use as you like.

On this sample I layered 3 different color inks to create this mosaic look. I just brusted the ink pads over the panel and then used a brayer to help blend the colors.

This one is an example of the same technique but the pattern is a grid instead of a criss-cross.

Also consider using your Scor-pal to create a simple border.

Hope this simple tutorial inspires you to use your Scor-pal for more than just creating a simple fold for your cards !
