Sometimes wonderful things happen to me. I was asked to do a review of the Stampin’ Up! Diagonal Scoring Plate. They should ask me to drink wine too — it was a no brainer! YES! Send it my way — review coming up.
Check out the video below for instructions on how to make a simple, dry embossed card set, matching envelopes and an easel box. It’s a great gift set — or you can be like me and keep it for yourself. It just looks so festive on my desk
Get a cool drink… the video is 20 minutes long and includes 3 projects and a couple of tips.
Cost saving tip: Except for one sheet of cardstock, all the papers and stamps in this project are digital! I purchased them from Stampin’ Up! and printed them onto Epson Presentation Paper. If you set your printer for Presentation Paper, you won’t believe how amazing the results are. It’s nice not to have to buy 4 sheets of the same patterned paper just to make sure I have enough, and even nicer to be able to coordinate all the little odds and ends. The digital stamps are the Just My Type collection, and I color matched them in Photoshop to match the papers.
You do not have to have Photoshop to do this set — SU has their own software (and a free 30 day trial), you could print the images in Microsoft Word, or you could totally do this exact same set with the SU rubber stamps and “real” patterned paper too. I’m just a computer nerd, so I loved that I could do it this way. I wanted you to know you have options.
It’s easy to be biased when you get a free product to test, but truthfully, I love the Simply Scored tool and the diagonal plate. My old scoring board doesn’t have the many smaller grooves, so I was always having to do all kinds of math when putting together a more involved project. The add on plate makes envelopes a snap and the price point is pretty reasonable.Stampin’ Up! sells product directly on their site, but you get a discount if you order through a demonstrator. I am linking HERE to our forums where Paper Craft Planet demos can link up. If you are looking a particular product, or want to order this one, I’m sure someone would be delighted to help you.
Here’s the best part, you get to be lucky too.
My friends at Stampin’ Up! have generously offered to let me give away THREE of the Simply Scored scoring boards WITH the diagonal plate! I’m going to give one away to someone who comments here, someone who comments on our Facebook page and someone who pins this post on Pinterest.
Get READY, get SET, GO!
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!
