I have had my scor-pal for almost a year and I could not imagine making cards without it now. If I could only create cards with it, it would be my prized stamping tool, but I can do so much more with my scor-pal than just make cards. It allows me to be so precisely creative that I can safely try new projects on good quality designer papers and card, without having to make a trial model on cheap card first. This is without a doubt my favourite stamping product, and if the scor-mat is as good, it will be a fantastic addition to my tools. As I'm a customer from New Zealand, the purchase price is more expensive than for US customers, taking freight into account, but it is stil worth it.
