Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 Product Review


Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334

Stampin' Up is constantly coming up with High Quality Products for their valued customers ~ Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 is no exception.

I have used other Scoring Tools and they came with a piece of plastic to score the paper and the measurements weren't easy to follow.

The Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 has scoring grooves every 1/8", so it will be easy to find whatever measurement you are looking for.

Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 is made from durable plastic, with the dimensions of 15 1/8" x 13 1/4" x 1". The scoring area is large enough to accomendate a 12" x 12" piece of Card Stock or Designer Series Paper.

Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 comes with a ergonomic Stylus with a comfort grip and 2 different sized tips. The tips are made of refined steal that will become smoother as you use it. I suggest to play with the Stylus and try either sized tips with different pressure. You want a clean crisp line, but you don't want to press too hard that you go through the Card Stock or Designer Series Paper.

The Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 also comes with 3 Place Markers. These insert into slots on the Ruler (along the top). The Place Markers remind you of the measurement that you want to score. For example if you want to make a box and you want to score all four sides at the 1", you could insert a Place Marker at the 1" slot. As you turn the Card Stock and score the line and then turn the Card Stock again, you can quickly see were the 1" groove is. Stampin' Up! also sells a package of 6 extra Place Markers #125625.

There is even a Hidden Storage Section to keep the extra Place Markers from getting lost.

The bottom has nonmarking and nonskid feet so it won't move or mark the work area.

You can use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334 to make the perfect scoring line, Cards with different folds, to add texture to any Card Stock or Designer Series Paper, create 3-D Boxes and Projects and much more… as the name suggests ~ Simply.

Through the Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Each year, the company donates $100,000 to the organization. In addition, they design an Exclusive Stamp Set to promote the partnership with RMHC, and donate a portion of the proceeds from the each sale of that set. To date, more than $95,000 has been donated from RMHC Stamp Set sales.

Stampin' Up!'s Demonstrators are also encouraged to volunteer their time teaching local Ronald McDonald House guests the creative art of rubber stamping through the Making a Difference program. Demonstrators also create cards at training events which are donated to Ronald McDonald Houses. Those staying at the Houses then use the cards to keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home.

You can help us make a difference. Purchase this year's set, Tag Alongs, and they'll donate $2 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for each set purchased.

Stampin’ Glass Glitter


Champagne Stampin' Glitter Glass Silver Glitter Glass

Stampin’ Glass Glitter is one of my favorite things in the new 2010 Holiday Mini Catalogue (on page 21). It reminds me of Christmas in the past when things weren't as shiny as things are today, but there is just enough bling to catch your eye.

These chunky, irregular-shaped pieces can be adhered to most anything using Sticky Strip #104294, Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755, or Crystal Effects #101055. Simply apply which ever glue you are going to use. Dump a lot of Stampin' Glass Glitter onto the glue. Gently push the pieces into the chosen glue and dump off the excess into a Podwer Pal #102197. Set it aside to give the glue a change to dry before you handle it.

Stampin' Glass Glitter comes in approximately 1 oz. per container and is available in Champagne #120997 and Silver #120995. It adds sparkle and shine to vintage projects and the finish will slightly tarnish over time, giving an aged, authentic feel.

Simply Adorned Stamped Jewelry



Stampin' Up! Simply Adorned Line beautifully combines the best of two worlds: stamping and jewelry! They designed the Simply Adorned Charms to hold a creation you design yourself, making your jewelry truly unique.

Simply Adorned Charms are Lockets–they open up so you can insert your custom stamped image. The Charming Stamp Set, along with Rub-Ons, Glitter, Ribbons, and other embellishments, can help you create your unique charm insert. And don’t forget that you can embellish the chains with ribbon, felt flowers . . . the possibilities are endless! The frame surrounds tempered beveled glass on the front and flat glass on the back. Because there’s glass on both sides of the charm, you can display an image on one side or both. You can create a custom heirloom piece that you’ll never want to change, or you can swap artwork in and out, depending on your mood and your wardrobe.

And although Stampin' Up! designed Simply Adorned Charms to be Jewelry, they also make delightful Key Chains or Christmas Tree Ornaments. Insert a stamped image or photo of your loved ones, tie a ribbon through the clasp, and you’re done!

Paper-crafters and noncrafters alike–will love the look of Simply Adorned and appreciate how easy it is to create custom jewelry. When you wear your own Simply Adorned Necklace with artwork you created yourself, be prepared for questions about where you got it!

6 Reasons why I LOVE Stampin’ Up! New Punch Design

Stampin' Up! New Punch Design 

Stampin' Up! adopted a new body style for their punches.
It started with the new 2010 Occasions Mini Catalogue and will continue with all new punch designs going forward.

I am so excited about this new design.
1) They are low profile which makes them easy to store and stack.
2) The punches lock shut for easy storage and transportation. The old design took up a lot of space.
3) There are dual labels on the top and the end; which allows for easy identification and selection when stored. You can sit them on a shelf and the label will show you what the punch is, so you don't have to take every punch off of the shelf to see which on it is.
4) The new punches allow for larger punched images and more intricate designs while providing greater ease of use.
5) Corner punches allow you to punch a corner design along the inside edges of a page, not just corners. This is like getting 2 punches in 1. What a value!
6) The larger, whole-hand handle design provides better leverage for easier use. This is very helpful if you have Arthritis or not a lot of strength in your hands.

Part of Stampin' Up!'s commitment to providing customers with the very best crafting tools includes the belief in what they call continuous improvement.
Essentially what this means is that even if something works very well, but they see a chance to improve it, they will work to make it even better.

The following list of punches will be coming back as the new design.

These punches in the new design won't be available until after July 1, 2010.
