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! :)
