Already Stamping ~ using my Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Diagonal Plate

Good Morning My Stamping Friends, I made it back from the Stampin' Up! Leadership with only a 45 minute delay (we had a hard time landing in Atlanta due to thunder and lightning). I'm so thankful because some of my friends were hours and hours late arriving and others had to stay in Atlanta overnight because of delays. Ouch!

Anyway, on Sunday I spent a few hours at Robin Merriman's team meeting and we had so much fun. Robin was one of my friends that had a several hour delay and since I had a little time and a brand new Simply Scored DIAGONAL PLATE that I won at Leadership, I helped out my bringing a Make and Take.  After I got home I made another little project very similiar to that. Here is the little 'box' and gift card with envelope that I made using my Stampin' Up! Diagonal Plate. It is sitting on top of my Simply Scored tool (you cna tell because the diagonal plate's groves are much thinner). Sorry about the lighting. Its such a bright day here and my camera was mis-behaving.

The Diagonal Plate (#125586)  is a plate that sits on top of the Simply Scored tool. It is held in place by rubber pads and ridges on the back of the plate. This plate has etched groves every 1/8th inch and can score cardstock up to 12x12. Then you get yours it will include instructions for creating common envelope sizes. This amazing tool will be available for clients to purchase on March 1, 2012. Meanwhile, keep following my blog because I plan to use mine all the time.

Have a Stamptastic Day,


  1. So cute! That box is adorable... the whole thing is adorable!

  2. Thanks Tya. I'm lovin' the tea bag totes on your blog! Great job.

  3. And I'm thankful for you! Thanks so much for stepping up and helping me out - you're the best!

  4. Do you LOVE it? I FINALLY got around to ordering mine and then expedited the thing (an extra $25 to Canada!), so I could have it to show off at class this coming Saturday. I'm sure the expediting will MORE than pay for itself in orders - MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    MISS YOU!!!!!
