Clearsnap & Scor-Pal Summer Fun Blog Hop!


Welcome to the 
Summer Fun Blog Hop 2011!!




Hopefully you came from the Scor-Pal blog, if you didn't start at the beginning with the Clearsnap blog.  

Today I'm showing you a bookmark (template included--so easy!) and matching card, because what's more fun than reading a good book while relaxing by the pool? Make sure to read all the way to the bottom for information about how to enter to win Clearsnap and Scor-Pal prizes!

I used Waltzingmouse Stamps and Hero Arts stamps and a muse | studio satin ribbon to decorate my bookmark--which fits over the outside corner of the page--and my matching card. I stamped with Colorbox Pigment Espresso and Colorbox Stephanie Barnard Dye Bubblegum. And of course, I used my new AND improved Scor-Pal scoring tool! (Thank you, Diana Crick, you genius, you!)

Because my bookmark will get handled pretty frequently, I adhered it together with Scor-Tape! I love it, it's tear-able! (harhar, I know!)


Waltingmouse Cameo to Go & Ovals-Classic Frames, Hero Arts Large Fabric Design Cling Background, PTI Rustic Cream Cardstock, a muse|studio French Roast Cardstock, Clearsnap Colorbox Espresso Pigment, Clearsnap Colorbox Stephanie Barnard Bubblegum Dye, a muse|studio Bubblegum Satin Ribbon, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large & Classic Rectangles Large

I left my "glue tab" the same size as the front and back of the bookmark so that there wouldn't be anything inside the bookmark to snag on the the page you are marking.


Our lovely Design Teams have created some wonderful summer fun projects with the Scor-Pal, brimming with inspiration and of course lots of Clearsnap inks! Visit each Design Team member's blog to see what inspiring projects they have to share. Leave a comment on each blog. We'll choose one winner from all of the comments posted to receive a prize pack from Clearsnap and another from Scor-Pal. 

Your next stop is Diane Zechman's blog, Paper Cookies! Enjoy the hop and good luck!
