Quickly:

Maybe I wasn't clear...

My blog candy giveaway is a gorgeous new Scor-Pal mat!!! (valued at $15.00, shown here, but minus the Scor-Pal and scoring tool, those are not inclued in the giveaway, just to show how it works with the mat). I usually have over 200 people leaving comments vying for the blog candy, (and if there aren't as many now because you prefer getting my stamps for free, I'm really flattered!!) but I haven't had as many this time so I just wanted to be sure you all knew what exactly the mat is and why you want it/ need it, even if you don't have the Scor-Pal!


The pic below was my set up before (please excuse the mess, I had to push everything back to take this pic, I cannot expose you to the horrors that are beyond the boundaries of this photo!!) , when you have a Scor-Pal and a mat (SU!) to stamp on a protect your surface, you need a really long table (plus adding your cutter, etc) Some people even have a separate table to put their Scor-Pal on. The two pushed up to each other are almost 3 feet long.
Now that I have a Scor-mat, I can multitask in this smaller area, only 13 inches wide! The mat which is still large enough to go under a 12x12 page, fits right into the Scor-Pal tray. I can cut on it with ym hobby blade(it's self-healing, protects your desk), do my stamping on top of it (smooth surface, wipe it clean), etc, and when I need to score something I just lift it off or slide it down. So neat and compact (and more portable, fits in the Scor-pal tote, and easier to store than the longer mats. I also like the diagonal guides (and the color, hee!)
Just a reminder to leave a comment on the post below if you would like to enter the drawing, ending Thursday!! (AND, if you haven't entered because you already have the whole Scor-pal shebang(or still don't think you need the mat), I'll give the winner their choice of the mat OR Jumping for Joy! How's that, free stamps, anyone? :) (and if you have both of these already, I bet you know someone who would be your best friend if you gave your prize to them! ;)

Please check back later for a card, I think blogger is about to go down for scheduled maintenance!

PS FYI If you win, the mat you will receive is brand new, in the packaging, the one in the pics is of my beloved mat, Diana gave me two! :)

Susan said...

Melanie, just look at that mat! And look at all the tshirt stamping ideas on your previous post!! YOU DESERVE AN AWARD!! There's one for you on my blog!

This is so funny. I was talking with two of my friends about getting some sort of 'working space mat' as I liked the one I saw at Archivers, which is the same concept at SU ... only I didn't know the ScorPal had one of their own and to fit on TOP of their existing ScorPal - wow!!! I would LOVE to have this as it would maximize my space area. I have a space area for quilting and would love to have this so I don't have to constantly move things around. Like many of you, I prefer to leave things as it is. This is probably one of the best space savers and great idea! Thank you for an opportunity to win a blog candy - something I will need to buy.

With my teeny tiny scrap area, this mat would be perfect. I am all about things that save space. Thanks for offering this!

I love the idea that Scor Pal has come out with. You can tell that the creater is also a crafter and knows what we all need.
Thanks for the chance at this great product!

WOWSER Melanie!!! I talked to Diana Crick and she told me about this mat. I haven't ordered one yet, so hopefully I will be lucky enough to win this from you. . .oh please, please, please. Thank you for the opportunity.

Cal said...

That is a pretty cool little toy and how can I argue with a free toy. Thank you very much for the opportunity. I am new to your blog and really loving all the ways to use your different stamps. My husband thinks of himself a t shirt deigner, so I had to get him that set as a gag gift just to see what he does with it. Hopefully not muchj because I want it!

Amy Johnson said...

I read your blog everyday and have no idea how I missed seeing this blog candy. Yes, I'd love a chance of winning the mat. I have the scor-pal, but not the mat. I'm not quite sure what the mat is for or how to use it though. Maybe I missed that blog entry too. LOL!

I was laughing at your post because I'm guilty of pushing everything around when I'm taking pictures of my stuff too! Like I could allow anyone to see that mess. A neat stamper, I am not! I'd love to win the mat, I don't have the Scor Pal but one of these days... thanks for the chance anyway!

Anonymous said...

Hi Melanie, You know how it is when you are going to stamp - you need stamps, ink and card as a bare minimum? Well for me a scor-pal is right up there as one of the necessities when you stamp. I love my scor-pal and this mat looks awesome. What a 'neat' idea! Thanks for the opportunity to enter for this blog-candy.
