Simply Score - Di Gibbs Style

Today I will be sharing some amazing projects I made when I attended a recent class that Di Gibbs was offering....check these amazing projects out.....
Di set out to teach us how to properly use our new "Simply Scored Scoring Tool" (P7-Mini).  She showed us how to make three ADORABLE PROJECTS and today I'm going to share the Box we made.
The real surprise that Di offers from this class is an amazing template that you place on the left hand side of your Simply Scored Scoring Tool and it sets up a jig that allows you to measure both the top and bottom portion of your box to be the exact same measurements and by using this jig when scoring the top of your box - It factors in the guess-work to allow for that little extra space needed to make your lid fit perfectly.
We used the "Beau Chateau" (P184) DSP and decorated the top portion of our box with the DSP and also the "Side Notes" (P190) die-cuts pieces.
I just love the "Friends" die cut from the Side Notes accents.  And a workshop of Di Gibbs just wouldn't be complete if we didn't use the "Jewelry Tag" (P210) punch.
It was so amazing to be able to cut both of our pieces of cardstock exactly the same measurements and then with the help of this "Special Jig" that Di included in with our class fee.......our boxes came together without having to factor in either a 1/16th" or 1/8th" measurement.
I will be sharing the cute little gate-fold card we made for the inside of our card box with you tomorrow......and then on Tuesday, I will be sharing the final project
we made at Di Gibbs Simply Score Tool Class. 

Hope to see you back here tomorrow.

Keep Living Your Dream!
