I am a cardmaker and a scrapbooker. I had purchased another scoring product that I struggled with and finally gave up trying. I saw most cardmakers were using the Scor-Pal and decided to give it a try. It is fantastic! The notched edges make finding and staying in your score line super simple. The score channels are just the right depth so I don't have to worry about pressing too hard and creating tears in my scored lines. The bone folder stays tight and secure in it's holder and saves me HOURS not having to hunt down my scoring tool. This product was clearly designed by a cardmaker. FANTASTIC product!
No matter what kind of paper crafts you make the Scor-Pal is worth it's weight in gold! Making cards is so much easier and if you like to use the gate folds or accordians it's a snap. I've also made several accordian albums as gifts once I got the Scor-pal because it's just so quick and easy. Making boxes is also so much easier with it. The Scor-Pal is lightweight and fits easily into my rolling tote when I'm heading out to a crop. And be sure to check out their website for ideas.
I love this!
At first look, it seems really plastic and cheap but when you use it you realize how awesome it is!! It's so incredibly easy to use. The marks on the board are very clear and I love that it has a little holder for the scoringtool, so you won't lose it. I also love that it comes with instructions with examples on ways to use it.
Thumbs up for this one!
This thing is a dream come true! It makes scoring so much easier for me! I had a scoring blade on my trimmer, but I HATE measuring! With this tool, I no longer have to measure. Just place my cardstock on it and score along the line I need that is marked at the top. User friendly and easy to read. Awesome product!
This is the best tool for card makers. Just think!! No more corners that have to be refolded or trimmed!!! This is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone. It's pricey but well worth the price. It should last forever.
This is a pretty handy tool, especially to make boxes, etc. The bone folder storage keeps me from having to hunt it down constantly. The board could use some 1/4 increment score lines from the left hand side. Otherwise, I like it - it's nice and sturdy, which is good, because it's not inexpensive.
I recently received a book about folding cards,,this has been a big help, I was able to make my first gatefold card wwith no messups, I'm reaaly not good at guess measuring! LOL
I had been on Scor-Pal's website before and was fascinated with some of the projects. I finally had the money to buy this and was anxious to try it out. I was disappointed with the total lack of instructions with the package. It shows the very basics ... how to fold a card in half. The site was not very much more updated than when I visited it years ago. I'm fortunate to have a mind-set of "tell me I can't do it and I'll prove you wrong!" ... so I'm sure I'll figure my own projects out. I was just hoping to use it sooner. Don't buy it if you don't have a very large imagination!!
I waited forever to get one of these being thrown by the price -- and finally found them for $20 on ebay - that's when I bit the bullet -- there is nothing you can do with scor pal that you can't do on your own - admittedly -- BUT your work never looked so CLEAN, professional and FINISHED as it does when your lines are perfectly straight, even and tight - it's like that bikini bod we had "back in the day" versus our 60 year old boobs dragging the ground bod - HUGE difference same person, same product just has that perfectly finished edge every single time -- that's why it's a MUST HAVE - we'd all love to take our bikini bod to the coffin - (I know I would LOL) and with Scor Pal - you can definitely take and keep those projects you slaved over to that beautiful edge EVERY SINGLE TIME
I love my Scor-pal. I delayed buying one for a really long time thinking I wouldn't really use it that much. Well I was wrong!! I now make boxes and my own embossed lines around photos and as a background on my layouts - things I never would have dreamed of doing before! Great tool. Its light weight and easy to use. I highly recommend it.
I put off getting this for too Long.. It is a must have . Makes your folds so neat and pretty! O and look for scor Pal projects on line to do. Christmas is coming so this is really going to HELP me!! So Go Ahead and get it.:O)
I recently purchased this product from CKC in valley Forge PA Convention center and it was great!!!!! I wanted to get it but wasn't sure I was going to use it! I thought it was only for card making only but there are so many different things that I've learned to do with it since my classes at CKC and it's easy to use and the lines are very helpful!!! You can make bi-fold cards, regular folds and so much more!!! I'm still learning but it's very easy!!!!! I watch youtube and I also go to the company website for different ideas for cards and boxes too!!!! Very coll and worth the money spent on this item!!!!!!
At first glance, some scrappers/cardmakers are disappointed in this "piece of plastic with lines on it". I have found that the scoring done on this board is much more professional than if done with stylus and bone folder. Also the "recipes" for making different kinds of scores (i.e. gatefold, trifold cards etc.) are super easy to follow. I love this helper. More advanced crafters may not need it, but I sure do.
