How many of you use scoreboards??? There have been some great U-Tubes

on how to use them. Do you have any ideas or tips to share with

us on how to use them and what you use them for?? Thank you,

I have a scoreboard. I think I used it only once. I usually just use a ruler and a bone folder to score something.

I love the scoreboards I have, the purple ones (enveloper and box maker) and the Martha Stewart one. I like the MS one because it has lines so close together you can really customize something with a close fit.

I tend to use the purple one most because it has all the paper sizes on it so easy to see. I use the gate fold and everything including the designs. I'm not so good yet at finding the design thru the paper so I think I will do as the video says and get me some soap to make the stylus glide easier. I like the simple designs and they add so much to the envelope I make.

For some reason I can not get the hang of the purple one:eek:

Did you have a learning curve on it??

It just takes a bit to be comfy with it.I've only made about six envies with it so far.Let's face it, I have wayyy too much stuff and I don't use it enough. I had better use it up so my hubby doesn't throw it out when I die :o

I just bought the scor-buddy and I love it. I took it to class the other day and it fits in my case perfectly. It has everything the big one has except for the size.

I have both the Martha Stewart and the Scor-Pal scoreboards and I use them both for scoring my cards and I use them when I'm scrap-booking too. Great inventions. next on my list is the scor-buddy which is used mostly for cards and has more score marks on it than the scor-pal......the flower child

I practiced using my scoreboards by converting an old mapbook we got at a garage sale for 25 cents. They are really great. I actually got a book that had a map of the area I was sending the card to and it wasn't local. I wonder if the person I sent it to knew it.

I have made little boxes at work just playing and love the fact that I can make a little gift set customized with even the box included.

I was on this club for quite a while before I ever investigated what these things were. It was another stamper friend who talked me into it and I am so glad she did. I take the MS one to work sometimes because it is more easily replaceable if lost or damaged. I so wish I had time to play. I probably have 6 weeks vacation time built up but there is always some reason not to take it.

I have the Score It. Don't like it much at all. Also have the Martha Stewart one and I really do like it and use it often. I use it to score my cards for folding. Before I started doing that, I had really bad folds that cracked and showed the white core of the paper. This eliminates that. I also have been using the scoring tool to make backgrounds. If you score every 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch increments on your paper, you can run a brown ink pad (I use the distress ink) over it and then it makes a board "fence" or "wall". Looks very western and retro. Love it.

I have a couple of Crafter's Companion boards that have designs on them. Is that what you're talking about Trudy? I haven't used mine yet.

I will have to see those youtube videos on scoreboard backrounds. I just love youtube!

Well, I tried but couldn't find a link and I'm too tired to spend much time trying; maybe later.

I don't have one that is just for scoring. I have limited storage or crafting space, and to me, with my scoring blade on my paper cutter, it would be a waste of money. A good ruler and a bone folder are wonderful small instruments for that sort of thing.

I just went to watch a MS video and realized that there were directions that came with the scoreboard. I didn't happen to know where they were because they got seperated from the board. I went looking for the package it came in because I kept it and couldn't find it anywhere but in the process found the directions in a clear page protector! WOW, if I hadn't found it I would have gone nuts looking for it. PTL! I haven't been able to make different styles of cards because I didn't have the directions, I'm delighted to have them now.

I am thinking I want to purchase another MS scoreboard to keep at work now that I know I can make the other style cards. I want to keep the one at home.

*LOL* Then the third one I'm contemplating will maybe be alright Trudy? I'd hate to over do it but then I'm thinking ahead to a day when I may rent myself out to stamp/scrap parties with my goodies and 3 may not be enough. I have friends at work who want to do stamping and scrapbooking but have nothing to do it with. I have told them not to invest in the stuff unless they really want to because they can rent me and my stuff and we can get it done and have a great time too. :)

PS. Trudy, are all yours different brands? Tell us about them and what you do or don't like about them please.

There are a couple of videos on score board backgrounds on Stamp TV site. Can't put the link on here, because they sell stamps, but just use the name with a .com and get to it that way. Very neat techniques there.
