MORE Blog Candy!

This is unreal!!! If you signed up for the Scor-Pal I have posted as Blog Candy — well, your chance to win just doubled!!!! Diana Crick, inventor of the Scor-Pal, has decided to throwa”Deluxe Scor-Pal Package” into the ring since interest seems to be so high. The “Deluxe Scor-Pal Package” consists of one Scor-Pal, a Scor-Tote, extra Scor-Tool and a roll of 1/4″ Scor-Tape. How cool is that!!!

So on Monday night, March 17, at midnight Eastern time,I will be having the random number generator select 2 numbers. The first number to pop up will receive the Scor-Pal Ioriginally listed(the original Blog Candy), and the second number selected will receive the “Deluxe Scor-Pal Package” that Diana has just donated. So, in this case, the 2nd prize is actually the larger prize — but that’s OK — it’s still a win/win situation for 2 people!!!

VERY IMPORTANT: All sign ups for both Blog Candies are still at my original post HERE. Only 1 entry per person. If you signed up before, you now have a chance to win either prize — do not sign up again. One entry per person. If you have not signed up and you’d like to, click HEREand sign up at the original post.


OK, now that the excitement is over, I’d like to share a fun little project with you I did this evening, using the Scor-Pal. This is a little gift — it’s a recipe box with 12 index cards inside on which recipes can be written, using the new SU set called Tart and Tangy and their new Summer Picnic Designer Paper. Fun!!! Here it is:


Isn’t it cute — love this paper! This is a simple box base, no top. It is made to easily house standard 4 x 6 recipe cards. The Real Red box is covered with the Summer Picnic DP and decorated with a ribbon and tag made from Tart and Tangy. The *Recipes* label was computer generated. The recipe cards are fun and so quick! I corner rounded the tops on a standard 4 x 6 index card. I then cut strips of coordinating DP 1 1/4″ x 6″ each, corner rounded the top two corners on each and adhered them to the index card. I then added a Round Tab punched tab on top and I was done. Oh, those tabs were stapled on — quick and easy!!!


  • Cut your cardstock 10 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches.
  • With the short side up against the ruler edge on top, move the left edge of the paper out to the 1/4″ mark on the ruler, then score at 3 and 5.
  • Turn your paper so the long end is up against the ruler edge on top, and score at 2.
  • Slide the paper to the right so the right edge is up against the rail at 12, and score at 10.
  • Cut on the score lines as shown in the photo, trimming a bit away on the center tab to allow the box to fold easily.

Such a quick project!!! I’m sure you’d have fun with it!! Here is the supply list:

  • Stamps: Tart and Tangy
  • Paper: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Summer Picnic Designer Paper
  • Ink: None, but markers in Real Red and Old Olive.
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Corner Rounder, Round Tab Punch, 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ Round Punches, Cropadile, Eyelet, Crafter’s Tool Kit, Staples, Computer Generated Sentiment

    Sharon, what a cute project!! Thank you also for the directions! On your blog candy draw, I had made a typo, and went back and corrected it? Can you delete that one for me? I tried, but couldn’t? Thank you!!!!!

    What a neat idea and so beautifully done. That creative mind of your is always working – and we reap the benefits!!! Thank you sooo much.

  6. Lois (clownmom) says:

    What a cute, cute project! I’m glad you had one of the index cards out so we could see how far down you put the paper. Before I noticed that, I wasn’t exactly sure how the index card would look — didn’t know if the lines were on the back of a fully decorated card or what. Okay, I’m a little thick in the head this morning. Anyway, I am going to give this one a try. My daughter just moved into a new house, and I thought it would be a cute kitchen-warming gift! Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. Janine says:

  26. Donna Meeks says:

    What a sweet recipe box – absolutely adorable!

  27. nancy littrell says:

    This recipe box is just so cute and functional. I have my Scor-Pal…..because of you, but if I do get chosen in the drawing it would go to my DD, who also stamps. My “Pal” is at my side everytime I stamp. What did we ever do without that awesome tool?!? TFS…..everything 🙂

  28. Beth says:

    Your recipe card box is so cute! I was already in for the blog candy. Now the additional prize makes the blog candy sweeter. Thanks to you and Diana for giving us a chance to win it.

  29. Elaine says:

    This is probably my FAVORITE project using things from the current mini.. I must make one – May I case?? LOL Sorry, I can’t resist!!

  30. Barb says:

    I love your recipe box! Very, very cute!

  31. Angie says:

    A Scor-Pal deluxe package?!? Amazing! Diana is so generous, thank you Diana! And that recipe box is adorable.

  32. LouBelle says:

    The generosity of some people is amazing! Outstanding blog candy. I love how you showcase the scor-pal. The boxes look so much easier to make with that tool than just using a Fiskars cutter! Keeping my fingers crossed…but just wanted you to know that I love all the boxes and items you make using that instrument!

  33. I just wanted to say Diane is a true angel not only did she offer me one but also RAK’d 2 of my Bday Club sisters! She is truly an amazing and kind human being. PLEASE don’t put me in for the candy as I already am beaming from ear to ear with my Scor-pal already! 🙂 Congrats to the winner!

  34. Ginny Schleich says:

    WOW! I love all of your projects and especially like the recipe box with cards! Love that you used the Picnic paper from SU. And thank you for doubling the chance at a Scor Pal! I went to my local scrapbook store last week and asked them to get them in and she ordered them right on the spot! So if I am not a winner here I will get one at the scrapbook store, but I just have to have one. You make projects look so much easier with it! Thanks!

  35. Swedie says:

    I love your recipe holder… but red is my favorite color and this is so eye-catching!

  36. Karen A says:

    That’s TOO cute! Thanks for sharing.

  37. leslierich says:

    Sharon, this is so darn cute! And what’s amazing, really, is that it doesn’t have to take forever. It’s actually pretty simple–the box and the cards. What a wonderful gift! The paper and stamps are just perfect for it!

  38. Anne Lawrie says:

    What a gorgeous project! Thanks for sharing it.

  39. Charlene says:

    Isn’t Diana just the best?! You are too….love the recipe box!!

  40. SusanH says:

    This is a very cute project!! I have to say, I have the other scoring tool and wasn’t sure about this one but got to play with it last night at my stamp club – it is fabulous! We had a 11 year old there who played too and she made some of the coolest papers/patterns. She would fold a sheet, score it in diamonds and lines and blocks and it was so neat when she unfolded it!!

    Thanks for sharing the projects!!

  41. beate says:

    Sharon, this is fantastic! I absolutely love it! You are amazing!

  45. Stephanie says:

    Wow. It would be so exciting to have one of these. I have tried some of these awesome projects and i just can’t seem to get all the scoring even. I think this would be just the ticket to make my projects come out right. Thanks for the chance!!
