Introducing The Art of Parchment Craft

Hi friends..........

Several years ago I learned "Parchment craft".And I loved it.
Parchment Craft involves creating beautifully embossed, delicate designs on parchment paper (Thicker
version of tracing/transparent paper. The craft utilizes a combina
tion of techniques
which include pattern tracing, embossing, stippling, perforating and coloring.

Parchment craft dates back to the 14th century. The craft began with communion cards and devotional pictures in Europe and the Netherlands.

19th century Paris saw a change in the parchment cards. The themes became more romantic and personal, introducing floral themes, cherubs, and portraits, and introduced embossing to the art creating the raised effect. Most of the borders, perforations, and cuts were done by machine at this time.

The art of Parchment Craft is enjoying a revival today, with the cards being hand drawn, painted, perforated and embossed, all done by hand, with the most common tools being a single needle to perforate the holes, and very small scissors to cut out the various designs. The items crafted in this manner require a great deal of patience, time, and ability. If you

are lucky enough to have a handmade Parchment card, bookmark, or other item, cherish it, because it was made and given with a great deal of love.

I am selling the above parchment tool is my store ....if you are like to get one please contact me.....

Scor-pal is back in store

I have Scor-pal and it's back in store I have both centimetres and inches. I have found this to be one of the most usable and fantastic tool to use for scoring, creating envelopes, boxes...card folds and etc...you can only be limited by your imagination..because the Scor-pal creates accurate and precise scores giving you professional looking folds, no more crooked cards. Multiple scores are done in seconds without moving the paper. Perfect for accordion folds, boxes, fancy fold cards and other interesting projects!

Instructions on How To Use the Scor-Pal
1. Place Scor-Pal on a flat surface with ruler at the top.
2. Place cardstock on the scoring surface. The sides and the top act as fences to properly align your paper for accurate scoring. Align with the top and either side fence depending on the size of cardstock that you are using.
3. There are notches at the beginning of each score line to show you where the groove begins. With one hand holding the cardstock, hold the scoring tool as you would a pen or pencil (45 degree angle). Note: When working with double sided Designer paper that has a white core, lower the angle of the tool (30 degrees).
4. Carefully draw the scoring tool down the paper, using an even pressure.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The first time you use Scor-Pal practice on a piece of scrap cardstock to determine the amount of pressure needed for your “hand”. To clean your Scor-Pal, wipe with a damp cloth. Dry thoroughly before using.
Card Making Tips and Scrapbook Paper Information Before Scoring with Scor-Pal
One of the key benefits of Scor-Pal is the ability to score multiple score lines at the SAME TIME, WITHOUT MOVING THE PAPER! This is a card makers dream because it is invaluable when making grid, reverse grid cards, gate fold, accordion folds, brochure/flyer scoring, box making, origami, iris folding and BOXES galore!
*When possible, always score with the grain of the paper. Cup the paper in your hands bringing the sides together. If it bends easily this is the grain of the paper. Turn the paper in the other direction.
It is best to fold your card so that the score line is to the OUTSIDE of the fold. The bump goes to the inside. This gives a neater appearance to the inside of the fold. When you make the score line you are spreading the paper fibers ready for the fold. If you fold so the score line is to the inside you are squashing the fibers you just spread apart.
When making accordion folds score at intervals, then turn the paper over and score in between the previous scores i.e. a one inch accordion along an 11” length, score at 1”, 3”, 5”, 7” and 9”. Turn the paper over, score at 2”, 4”, 6”, 8” and 10”. The indentation is the mountain fold.
If you are making the standard A2 card, 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”, score the full eleven inch length at 4 1/4” then cut the cardstock at 5 1/2”. This way you are saving time by only scoring once to make two cards.
