My New Tool: Martha Stewart Scoreboard

I've wanted one of these Martha Stewart Scoreboards for a while now, but it was a blog post for a mini fold book by Lisa Johnson that totally had me hooked. When I find a tool I know I must own it sort of nags at me until I finally buy it...which I did. And I took it with me to a weekend crop to give it a try.  
Here's what I created with my new Martha Steward Scoreboard. I saw this fun Shutter Card on the Scor-Pal website and thought I'd give it a try. After a couple of attempts and adjustments to size, I finally found my groove (ha, ha) and created this beautiful card with Teresa Collins Giving Thanks Collection

Then I created this Candy Bar Card from another pattern I found on the Scor-Pal website. It's super easy to make once you figure out the directions.
And if you have ever tired making these pin wheel flowers without a scoring board then you know how hard it is to get it to turn out right. 
It fits those oversized Hershey or Symphony Bars...cute huh?? I created this fun card with the new Everybody Loves Christmas collection by Echo Park. And don't you love my Devine Twine on the card??
Now a little bit about the Martha Stewart Scoreboard, you should know that it's really reasonably priced. It's only $19.99 at most stores and it's competitor, Score-pal retailers for almost twice that ($39.99). And if you'd like to read a sweet review on this, check out Erin Bassett's post over on the Craft Critique.

My one! Other then it's another tool you have to figure out how to store, it's a great product to own!!

  1. Thanks for the shout out! I'm really surprised how I ever lived without one...such a time saver!!

  2. I love mine, too!!! It is so helpful!

  3. I have one of these and love, love, love it!! I actually started making a few cards after that!! Thanks for the links to the cards you made... your first card is amazing!!
    barb :)

  4. Oh my, you are so very talented! I will have to take a look into one of these. I have to admit that I am still in the scrapbook dark ages; but I LOVE seeing what you cool people are doing!

  5. I love the Scor-it board. Easier for us "not so good at math" people. It has ONE raised score ridge in the center, and it makes a nice raised score. Measures 6 inches each way from the center.
    Scoring for dumbies! LOL!
    I obsessed about this like you did the Martha Stewart scoring board. Waited until I have scrappy garage sale credit! :)

    Great cards Lori! Maybe I should actually now score something myself!

  6. How cute I have a scorepal but love the 1/4 marking ont his so eventually I will get it.
    I want to thank you for the great job as a DT cordinator over at Imaginisce.
    It takes a lot of time dedication and cordinating the blog is never boring the designers create with their heart and soul I am just extending gratitude at this time of year for all the hard work Scrappy people do I don't think they hear it enough!

  7. I just bought a Martha scoring tool too! Just got it outbid the packaging but haven't actually use it. Thanks for the links! I can use these project ideas.

  8. So that's the trick with those flowers, you have to have a scoring board? My craft room is so full that if I bring another scrapbook retail bag into the house my husband is going to blow up. It would help if I got off the computer and actually did my projects instead of looking at what others have done. Best wishes:)
