ScorIt: First Project

May 4, 2009 at 9:53 am 1 comment


This was my first project with the Scor-it Mini which is perfect for card making.  You can check out (no “e” in score or  you’ll get to an entirely different site!) There, you can view other projects and videos.

The nice thing is that it has a hinge type score which makes a beautiful score line for actually making your own cards from card stock.  And, I learned something…even the pre-scored cards I buy cheap at Wal*Mart?  I’ve not been getting a great line when I fold them BECAUSE I’ve been folding them backwards!  Some with this…You actually fold it AGAINST what appears to be the natural fold.  The diagrams on their site make this more clear than I am able!

I can see a lot of benefit to a 12X12 ScoreIt in making these diagonals I’ve admired on other people’s cards, but the card size is still nice and handy.

Below are the stores in Kentucky that carry Scor-it Products if you are interested, or you can search online to find them and order.bouquet-magnanimity

    Really like this, sounds like a gadget I need to get! I was hoping you would be at scrapbooking so I could compare some notes. After I saw your blog on the water colors, I pulled out some that I have had since Christmas and made some cards for last weekend. We’ll have to have a session soon.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe

Please know that I am not posting as an expert, but as a fellow traveler. I recommend that you research and double check things on your own before taking any advice or instruction from this site.  Information is given in good faith for the time period in which it was written. I am also an affiliate of the Sure Cuts A Lot software, for Cricut, which means you don't need Cricut cartridges to cut any font or .jpg on your computer.  I get some pocket change for introducing you if you choose to buy it by clicking on my site.  And we all know I need more cardstock, so I do appreciate it.  I sometimes review other products for a fee, but I am not required to give a positive review, and post honestly as to my experience.  I hope you find this useful.
