Thursday's Tip - Scoring Designer Series Paper

I was talking to Paula Richard, one of my wonderful team yesterday. She suggested that I gave advice on scoring designer series paper (without ripping it!!).

Designer series paper is fabulous not only for decorating your scrapbooking pages and your cards, but is also great for some 3D projects. It is, however, a lighter weight than the cardstock Stampin' Up! sell and therefore needs to be treated a little gentler when it comes to scoring.
Tip: If you are a little heavy handed with the scoring blade on your paper trimmer, then try using a bone folder down the score line instead.

Begin with your bone folder in the groove at the top of the paper trimmer.
Move the bone folder down along the groove putting a firm enough pressure to cause indentation. This should be enough to give a deep enough score without ripping the paper.

Give it a go today. Sign up to my fortnightly newsletter to receive more tips, ideas and 3D project templates.

Happy creating.
