Scoreboard

Postby Carolyn » Sat Feb 25, 2012 5:52 pm

I have a very old one of these that just has a few standard marks and am just wondering if I need to invest in the new ones that have loads of score marks. Do you have one and do you get lots of use out of it? What do you do with it?

I have a Martha Stewart one which I love. I use it a lot for making boxes, envelopes (sometimes) and just generally scoring when that is needed. It's a very useful tool I think.

I was thinking of getting a Hougie board but put it off as I don't use a board very often and loads of other stuff I would prefer first.

Maybe I ought to start ebaying some stuff I don't want to make space for some new?

I have a Martha Stewart board and I like it mostly. Sometimes though the amount of lines is just too many :roflmao: That's in imperial measurements. Now if you buy 'our' paper etc its usually in metric so lining things up isn't quite the same. I'm lucky as I was given a metric Scor-Pal. If I were buying I'd buy a Scor-Pal.
If you don't know what to do with new stuff, hide it until you do!

I've got a Hougie and love it (ought to use it more though) - metric one side and inches the other.

I LOVE my MS scoring board. I use it nearly as often as I use my paper cutter. I can't believe they don't make a metric one, though. They are missing out on a huge market.
Happy Card Making!

Maybe an idea for a new page Carolyn. On scoring boards and their uses as I am sure there are all sorts of different things people use them for. I buy precut base cards together with envelopes and only make a few from a sheet of card where I need a scoreboard.

One of the things I use mine for is folding the paper strips for iris folding.

Scoring card for........card making, box making , envelope making ............anywhere you need to make a crease this will make the crease cleaner and sharper.

spookily I moved the iris folding page the other day on the site, and one of your cards are on there

The pictures are so small as it was in the days of dial up!

I use mine to make boxes, but rarely for folding card as it is never in the middle unless I measure it, so just fold and use the bone folder for the crease.

Oh my! Yes that definitely looks like it was in the days of dialup and tiny hard drives!
