Post SCORING

Okay, this may seem like a dumb question but I am a HUGE scrapbooker who just recently got into cards. So, I have used my stylus to score but I am thinking there may be a better way as I look at the tutorial pics. Any suggestions would be great! thanks! Alex

I have a score-it ..
Wonderful invention!
And you can do borders with it pretty easily to give a card a formal look

I use the scoring blade from my Fiskars cutter but when using the DP I have to use a VERY light hand or I end up cutting it instead of scoring it. I haven't done this but I know some people use the tip of their bone folder and the Fiskars...just line it up and run the tip of the bone folder thru the clear guide to get your score. Jan

Love my scor it, I had the fiskar cutter/scorer and hated having to have such a light hand on lighter weight stuff or I would cut it. I do still keep my cutter around for cutting out the middle of stuff as I can't cut out stuff like that with my guilottine cutter.

Yes, I love my Scor-It. I didn't get it until my production quantity made the purchase seem practical though.
I still will pull out my Acrylic Grid Ruler and Stylus for quickie stuff, or else my Fiskars Personal Cutter (light hand for sure). And I've also seen other demos use the Personal Cutter guide line for using their new Cutter Kit for scoring ... again with a light touch.

I use my bone folder with my Fiskars cutter sometimes......also use a (gasp) Pampered Chef scraper = that little brown thing that you scrape stuff off from your baking stone. It has a nice pointy edge that is good for scoring.

Default scoring done right

The Scor It Board is the BEST BEST BEST BEST BEST. Need I say more?

I have tried all types of other methods (bone folder, scoring blade Fiskars etc.) and NOTHING looks as clean, sharp and professional as the Scor It.

WORTH EVERY $$ SPENT. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY IF YOU GET THIS TOOL!

I love this thing! No more "cracked" cardstock on the folds! I keep mine leaning up against my desk leg and when I need it just pick it up and use it on my lap! yep, my lap! it's great! you don't have to have table space to use it! Table space is a commodity! lol

I appreciate Pam's suggestion to use the scor-it board on your lap - that has been the biggest thing holding me back from buying it; not wanting to lose the table space. Now, where are some sources for purchasing this tool? Anyone?

Okay, now for the big question. I have been forever confused about this. When scoring do you fold paper on the same side you score (valley) or away from score (mountain)? I've tried both and for the most part it works. I just want to know the "Correct" way.

I didn't know for awhile, either, but I read you're supposed to fold it the same side you crease it as the crease breaks the fibers on that side. If you fold it the other side of the crease, then you'd be breaking fibers on both sides of the paper ... thereby "weakening" the fold on both sides. I've made this "boo-boo" (not knowing ... or too lazy to flip the paper over for accordian folds), but my untrained eyes haven't seen a major difference -- or maybe the demands of the folds weren't that great to make a difference???

How is the scor-it board better than using the scoring tool on the Fiskars cutter?

You can also use your bone folder in the channel where the blade usually runds. I saw this on the Carol Duvall show.

I will probably stick with the fiskars cutter and the bone folder so I can use them in demos.

Me too on the fiskars--works great for me because I can measure just like I would with the cutter.

the scor-it has a centering ruler....so it is really easy to be accurate.
http://scorit.com/how.html
I love the professional finished look it gives and the convenience of just being able to pick it up and do it even on my lap, because it is a larger, solid base than a Fiskars. I wish they weren't so high priced - hopefully they will be so popular that they can come down in price because of the demand. Tell your moms and mil's you want one for your birthday! I gave my three daughters each one for their birthdays this past year.

I swore my friend was wasting her money buying a Scor-it when we both have the Fiskars cutter....until I tried it.....couldn't get my own fast enough. It's wonderful, and I find it so much more accurate than the results I was getting with the Fiskars...

I've never had a problem with scoring. Whenever one of my ball point pens has run out of ink, I "put it out to pasture" as a "scoring pen".

First make sure the pen is really and truly out of ink; scribble in circles and back and forth on scrap cardboard or paper (I usually scribble on an empty cereal box that is about to be thrown out) until you are certain that there is no more ink hiding inside the pen. I usually open the pen and remove the ink tube just to be even more certain. I also label the pen so I won't mistake it for a pen that still has ink! Try the pen again after an hour and again the next day, just to be absolutely sure there's no more ink in the pen!

Then place a good ruler where you want the score to be and just run the empty ball point pen along the ruler's edge as if you were ruling a straight line. Apply as much pressure as you'd like to get as deep a score as you like.

If you want to, you can place the paper to be scored on a clean piece of cardboard (I like the inside surface of a cup-up cereal box - I guess you can tell my kids eat a lot of cereal!) that will serve as a soft mat to score on, although this is not necessary.

Scoring along the edge of the ruler, the rolling ball point glides even easier than a stylus. Neat!

And since out-of-ink pens don't cost anything, we have more money to spend on stamps!

Another idea for scoring and folding is an old credit card, or preferably a new one that you're not going to use Use it along a ruler to make the score then fold and flatten the fold with the edge of the card. I find that over time, the corners get worn down so you'll want to keep all those cards that come in the mail and you don't want!

I use my fiskars to score. And usually fold by hand. I have extra scrapers. I may try to use that to fold with.

Also, my mom got me a center finding ruler that I haven't used yet. After looking at the Scor-it, I think I know how I'll use it.

Thanks for all the tips.

Okay, I'm a little late trying to get in on this thread, but I've been away! Anyway, I was going to buy a Score-It, but the price is a little (okay, very) prohibitive for a scoring tool. I DO use the Fiskars cutter, but I find myself cutting through rather than scoring, so I switched to a stylus in the Fiskars groove, and that works just great. I learned this from my Stampin'Up! demo who was teaching a class on boxes. Works for that, and works for cards and envies.

I don't remember where I read it, but I distinctly remember reading that you were supposed to fold toward the 'mountain' sideof the score. Scoring actually breaks down the paper fibers so they will be less likely to tear when you fold. Therefore you're supposed to always fold with the scored side out, as it will be less likely to tear . Clear as mud? LOL

That said, I'm just as much a tool lover as the next gal, but I just gotta say - I have never been unsuccessful using my trusty stylus and metal drafting ruler. I just see no need for investing in yet *another* tool when I'm perfectly happy with the results I get with my stylus. KWIM?

Just my .02.

I think that Stampin Up has a "cutter kit" it's a thing that has like 4 different tools on it, and one of them is a scoring tool.

Yes, SU does have the cutters kit with the scoring blade. I often use the distressing tool and have used the scoring blade on small areas.

The Scor-It price is expensive, but how much money do we spend on card stock and how often do you get totally frustrated when you are trying to score a card and it just does not score straight or you press to hard with your fiskar and cut clean through the paper. This is one of those items that it might be ok to skimp on, but eventually you will find that it is worth the price you pay for it. Start adding up all the paper you have messed up from some other scoring method, or how many cutters you have gone through trying to get a good nice even score or how much time you have wasted trying to find the right thing to use to score with, only to have your hand slip halfway through and your ruler move and you have put a score mark where you don't want it on your last sheet of good paper. Just my 2 cents. This ranks right up there for me with having a great paper cutter. Why spend your money on stamps and accesories if you are going to fight to get something that makes a card look so great (a nice score line). I do not sell scor-it's or anything else, just a satisfied customer.
