Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing green? We hope you’re excited for this fun little adventure we have planned today where you have lots of chances to win goodies on lots of different designer’s blogs. The Scor-Pal team has joined with the American Crafts gals to show you how you can enhance your scrapbooking layouts, cards, and projects with the Scor-Pal tool and the wonderful American Crafts products.
Just in case you get a little lost or simply want a list of all the blogs up front, here is the order of the hop:

For today I used the ADORABLE Garden Cafe line of paper and some coordinating accessories to create an apron card (Anna Wight’s template) and a matching little teacup with a Keurig tea pod (K-cup) inside.
On the pocket of the apron card, I scored some diagonal lines in both directions and then sponged over them to highlight the embossing. The pocket was attached with Scor-Tape. I added American Crafts buttons and a coordinating dimensional sticker.
To make the teacup, I followed the directions for the coffee cup, except I made it shorter in height. I started with a 9 x 3 1/2″ strip instead of 9 x 4 1/2″. The handle was made with circle punches and I inserted the ends in the side seam instead of attaching them to the outside. The Scor-Pal and Scor-Tape are AWESOME for projects like this!
To decorate the teacup a bit, I used my initial from the American Crafts Thickers (glitter foam stickers). I also placed a little flower from the Accents & Phrases Sticker Book onto a scrap of the paper, cut it out, and inserted a medium jewel brad before attaching it to the cup.
Here I removed the Keurig pod so you can see the cute dotted design on the inside. The tag on the Keurig pod is also from American Crafts. I altered it a bit with a thin strip of the Garden Cafe paper and punched the bottom edge. The “doily” underneath the cup is a diecut.
I had a lot of fun creating this…I hope you enjoyed it too! I have to say…the American Crafts paper is a nice thickness…not flimsy at all…and was perfect to use for my projects! The accessories are delightful too! ♥ They make a great combination with the Scor-Pal products!
