SCS Product Review :: Scor-Pal

Today, I'm sharing some great news! A few weeks ago, I was asked to join Splitcoast's Product Review Team! After receiving products from vendors, we use them, and write a review on what we think about the products. The reviews are posted in Splitcoast's Weekly Inkling and can be found here or here online. You may subscribe to the Weekly Inkling, by clicking here and entering your e-mail in the blue box on the top right.

Of course I accepted, so first I am reviewing Scor-Pal's line of products. Check out all of our reviews here and also the samples we made using the product here!

Splitcoaststampers = SCS

Here are some samples I've made using Scor-Pal, Scor-Bug, Scor-Tape, and Scor-Mat! I use the Scor-Pal for every card I make (to score the fold) and the Scor-Mat as my working surface.
