More Papertrey

Good morning!! Did you all have a good weekend?! Ours was pretty uneventful but sometimes those are the best kind right? :)

I wanted to share a couple Papertrey Ink cards. First, I made this card a week or so ago when I needed a baby gift card. It was pretty simple. I love that sailboat from the Bitty Baby Blessings! I paper pieced the sale from some Everyday Blessings paper and I used my Fiskars trimmer/scorer to add the scored lines 1/2" on each side.

Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Spring Moss, Everyday Blessings dp (Papertrey Ink), Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessing (Papertrey Ink), Inks: Palette Noir, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist (Papertrey Ink), Accessories: Dimensionals, Aquapainters,

Tell me friends, how much do I need a Scor-Pal?? I keep going back and forth - Scor-Pal or Janome?? I do have a regular sewing machine but don't really get it out that much to sew on cards since it's big and heavy. . . but it is there. What about the Scor-Pal? I see so many cool projects made with it - should I get one?? Seriously, please help me out here! :)

Ok, here's my second card. I found a cool thread in the Papertrey Ink Forum - they have a Casual Mid-Week Challenge. Neat huh? Kim Crawford posted this sketch and I thought it was so fun I gave it a try. As you can see I am still on a bright kick. Actually, this whole card's color scheme came from the ribbon - some yummy American Crafts ribbon I picked up at Target last month. The cupcakes are from It's a Celebration. I love how there are different "tops" for the cupcakes - this one goes well doesn't it?!

Thanks for visiting! I have a busy week ahead . . . my BIL will be in town for a couple days, he's just getting off the ship he works on and heading home to Thailand, we're going to look at Aaron's pictures from last week, plans for a couple get togethers with friends - lots of fun stuff!! :) I hope you have a great Monday!!

Cardstock: Stampers Select White (Papertrey Ink), Green Galore, YoYo Yellow, Real Red, Stamps: It's a Celebration (Papertrey Ink), Inks: Paris Lights (Palette), Ladybug Red, Bahama Blue (Memento), Green Galore (SU!), Accessories: brads (Queen & Co.), Word Window punch, Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, ribbon (American Crafts)


  1. Beautiful cards as always Jules...and everyones snack lists are making me hungry!! :) and I say go for the scorpal 1st, Janome next!

  2. Love that baby card and the way you put the cupcakes on that card is great, love the layout. I have a scor pal and do use it, just makes it easier for measuring.

  3. What a sweet baby card! I love my Scor-Pal! I also love your fun cupcake card! Have fun with your family!

  4. totally adorable baby card Julie, I love it!! Personally, I score using my cutter and bone folder and it works great, but I don't sew either so if you are getting one of these, I would go for the scor-pal! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

  5. Cute cards, Julie! I love the paper pieced sail boat! I don't know which one to get. I use them both a lot!

  6. Great cards! I love the layout and sweet colors for your baby card and of course the vibrant colors in the second card too.

  7. I love these cards, Julie! And you NEED a Scor-Pal! I don't know how I ever got along without one. I have also bought them as gifts and the recipients were thrilled. You deserve one!

  8. Your cards are FANTASTIC! LOVE the sailboats in the corners!!

    I am also battling the same question!!!!!! Janome or Scor Pal?! Isn't that funny?! :) I am leaning toward the sewing machine, becuase I can score with a blade for a bit longer... :)

  9. Just ADORABLE cards, Julie! So fun. I haven't bought that Bitty Blessings set yet, but you sure are tempting me! LOL

  10. These cards are both adorable! The cupcakes are just calling me! I do not have a Scor-pal but everyone tells me that I need one! I seem to be getting along with it however! I already have a sewing machine, not a Janome, so I am afraid I am not much help (enabler) at all!

  11. love the bright colors!

    check out my blog - it's new!

  12. love your baby card. very soft and cute.

  13. Beautiful cards! I just love the cupcake card. That's my favorite. I love your style.
