Truly, I use my Scor-Pal for every card I make .. not to mention other uses, such as multiple scores & dry embossed lines, etc.

I do understand that each has their own preferences, however, and there is usually someone searching for a Scor-Pal in the ISO threads if you're unhappy with yours.

I've been having so much fun with my Scor-Pal. I tried it at my demo's before I bought it and I loved it, but I never realized how many different things you can do with it until I got it. And it's so easy. I would never go to all the trouble of changing the blade on my cutter just to score. And I can't figure out how I would do some of the special cards (tri fold shutter cards, etc.) with my cutter that are so easy to do with the scor-pal.

So sorry you didn't like yours.

Ha! I do, too. And then I slip it between two cabinets when it's time to clear the table for dinner! LOL!

From the many boxes and lids that I create to one of my favorite techniques of creating faux woodgrain, that Scor-pal is on my desk every minute. (I had the fiskars one and I found that I constantly pulled down the wrong blade and ended up cutting my card stock in half instead of scoring it. Yes, I know, that's me being a dummy but that's me all the time. LOL!

Here is one of my favorite cards that I made with my Scor-pal doing the Faux woodgrain technique. The Scor-pal made this so easy because I didn't have to re-measure with every score.



Here's what it looked like before I attached my focal image.



Occasionally I get buyer's remorse but then, I go find a bunch of things that I can do with the tool and voila! Buyer's remorse- gone!


Pretty please post a link to the tutorial for the wood grain paper in this card! I LOVE it!

Circut scores? Really? Where? I can only think of one cart that needs scoring option and that's Tags, Boxes and More. Please do tell more.

I have the Scor-Pal and Scor-It. I LOOOOOOOVE the IT! It's so much better to score with. The Pal... my paper always rips and when it does work the scoring isn't that great compare to the IT. Yeah, if I have another scoring method like what you mentioned I'd pass the Pal BUT, the IT as much as it takes up space does a better job than the other tools you mentioned.

I use my scorepal every day. I cut a self healing, gridded mat to fit the top so I use it as my work surface and when I need to score I just slide the mat off and score away. Much more accurate than the score I was getting with my scoring blade. I also slide the card to the corner of my score pal to fold, perfectly matched card edges every time.So for me it's a "Man, I'm so glad I got this"

I've had my Scor-Pal for a couple years now. I love it. I use it for every card I make and certainly any project that needs to be scored and folded. The website site is terrific for projects and ideas! The Customer Service is great as you can get your specific questions answered to by the Designer of the product.

I did purchase the little Score-It at a show earlier this year just to see how it works. I don't like the rubber surface....too hard to slide the paper around and it is difficult to line up the paper edge for a absolutely accurate score.

The Scor-Pal is much easier to store and the light weight makes it great if you travel.

The Scor-Pal gets my vote with out any doubt!

I had the Scor it when it first came out, and used it some, but it is so big it was always in the way. I sold it to a friend, who loves it. I later bought a Scor-pal, For the longest time, we did not get along, again it is big and my work space is pretty small. So probably several months later I decide to make Stair step style cards. Amazingly easy with the Scor-pal. It took me several months, but I do now love my Scor-pal. I don't use it for every card, but for several scores per card, I was amazed how easy it became.

Forget the Scor-Pal. I just got the Martha Stewart Score Board ------ OMG!!!!

It out shines the Scor-Pal in every category. Here's why;

It has 1/8 score lines
It is open on the right side of the board
It is just as sturdy as the Scor Pal but has wayyyy more features
It COMES WITH A TRIANGULAR ENVELOPE MAKER - that stores neatly underneath the board. An envelope maker for pete's sake!
It has a nifty flip top compartment that has INSTRUCTIONS included on the lid for making: A2,A6,A7,A9 cards and Boxes: 3",4",6",8" !
The compartment also holds the scoring blade
Full price is $19.99 at Michaels ( use a coupon and you've got a bargain)
No more guessing or sliding paper around.

I've found the perfect scoring tool!

In defense of the Scor Pal though - it does make wider score lines than Martha Stewarts. This would be because the MS board has 1/8" lines so they will of course be thinner. I'm going to keep my Scor Pal though, because I have cut out a heavy 12x12 acrylic cover and it makes a wonderful work surface. Keeps everything nicely contained.

Thanks for the tip on the Martha Stewart Score Board! I haven't had the extra moola to buy a scor-pal, but if you can get the MS score board for $19.99 at Michael's and use a coupon I would say it is worth trying!!

I went to Michaels today to check this new score board out. They did not have it.

I'm wondering how many will have trouble lining up the score lines with them that close together, or have issues with jumping the track. I teach Scor-Pal classes and plenty have trouble with the 1/2" distance. Even more so trying to read the ruler at the top.

And the reason for the fence on the right side of the board is for the left handed user or for the tight scores that can happen for a righty on the left side of the board. Example, if I need a 1" score, as a righty, I more often than not, will use the 11" score line on the right side. By having the fence there, it will be nice and straight.

I'd like to see one in person, just so I can see how sturdy it is. The envelope template sounds intriguing. Boxes are so easy, not sure a template is necessary. Now, if there was one for pillow boxes or boxes with unusual angles that would be a different story.

I played with it alot last night. No problem what so ever in "jumping the track" on the score lines. The measurement lines on the top fence are just like reading a tape measure. Actually the Scor Pal is much more indiscriminate in the markings. If you can read a tape measure you won't have a bit of problem with this one. The weight of the board is pretty much the same as the Scor Pal. It doesnt include directions for odd sized boxes - just standard sized, so if you want to do the odd box you would merely follow whatever scoring directions you follow now.

I wish everyone would get to see these - but even when I got to Michaels there were only two left. And honestly with a 40% off coupon - you're talkin about 12 bucks. I think the Scor Pal was a very very innovative idea - but now it's been improved upon by about 100%. The only advantage I can see for Scor pal now is that it has developed a metric version (which those that use metric must surely appreciate).

I havn't had a chance to check out Michael's lately as I can't drive due to broken neck. But I'll bet they are out of them by now at that price.

Ouch! Take it easy, there! No sense hurting yourself, 'k? Maybe a phone call to your M's ahead of time to see if it's even there would be a good idea.

On another note, I just stopped by my M's on the way home from grocery shopping "just to see," lol. Well, they DID have 3 of them hanging there, with 25% off signs all over the section. So I took it up to the cash register "just to see" if it was included in the 25% Turns out even though the sign refers to glue, scrapbooking and "general craft" MS stuff being on sale, this little puppy rang up full price, not 25% off. So, since I was already there, I pulled out my 50% off coupon from my last visit there and got the thing for $10.

I gotta quit stopping in Michael's "just to see" what's goin' on...

I find I really have to watch when I buy things there. The sign will be up but they won't honor it like the time they had paper pads on sale and on the same display were packages of orange and black cardstock. I took it up and it wasn't on sale. I think most places honor their signs but sometimes it gets tricky at Michaels.
