Coppernob Crease Mouse Blog Candy

This is very exciting for me …. my first blog candy giveaway!
I hang my head in shame in telling you that until Josie from Coppernob sent me her new Multiscoreboard Xtra with Crease Mouse to try, I had never used a scoring tool to fold my cards …. I thought they were just a gimmick!  How wrong I was ….I am now a convert and can’t believe the finish I now get on the folds of my cards and now panic when I can't find mine, in fact I have one and a spare, I love it so much!
“Crease Mouse Scoring Tool - the perfect partner to the M & F Board! This light-weight tool fits comfortably in the hand and is ideal for scoring along M & F's grooves. The flat edge enables you to make sharp folds and reduce cardstock cracking”
Josie has very kindly sent me five Crease Mice/Mouses worth £3.25 each and I will be giving one away each day for the next five days, all you need to do is leave a comment(s) on posts between Monday and Friday this week, (no linking or complicated stuff like that), and I will sort out the rest. How exciting!!

Nautical Inchies

Nautical Inchies 1
I have never done “inchies” before …. so I thought I would have a go …. oh my life, I like to work small, but this is ridiculous,  I almost needed reading glasses over my reading glasses!
Nautical Inchies
I decided to start off very simply, using four nautical charms I already had and stuck to two main papers, plus tiny scraps of a couple more to add a bit of contrast.

I’m not sure if there are any rules to inchies, if so I have probably broken them, because once I added the silver matting they were everso slightly over the inch!!
