Now onto my paper creation.
I got a Scor-Pal recently ;-), yeah, I know, I must be the last person I know to get one .................. and I love it!
I grabbed some scrapbook papers, acetate and my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder dies, and this is what I came up with ;-)
This is the first thing I made with it - in 10 minutes flat!
square box with clear lid

First tryout of new toy

Because it was a test, I grabbed some old scrapbook papers - I used a fresh sheet for the base, but a scrap piece I had miscut for a card was used for the lid, and the acetate is borrowed from where I used to work - I won't say where, but since I have not worked there since some time in 2006, I think it counts as OLD STASH ;-)  The centre hole was cut using the Cuttlebug and Spellbinder Circle die.

Interestingly, the circle spellbinder dies were one of the first Nestabilities dies I bought way back in 2009 - I remember thinking when I purchased the Cuttlebug .... "I hope I use this thing a lot"  because it was quite expensive - $100.  I still use it today, at least once a month, sometimes more!

The Scor-Pal site has heaps of projects - the box I made can be found HERE
I can see some great Christmas boxes coming up in the near future ;-)
If you want a metric Scor-Pal, BlueEdge Crafts have them HERE

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. Fabulous box! Glad your having fun with your newest toy.

  2. What a fantastic post Cathy. Have we all really been doing Unstampabelles that long. :-) I love this box and love it even more that it only took you 10mins. I will have to check out Scor Pal site.
