Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

My Eazi Score board by Diamond Card Crafts

My "Eazi Score" Scoreboard is the most used piece of equipment in my craft room - yes, even more than my beloved Bug!  Since you often ask about it, I thought I give it a prominent place on its own today.

It cost me £10/11 about 6/7 years ago and shows no signs of wear and tear despite me throwing it on the floor after use (not temper I hasten to add - just shortage of space),  and I still use the original scoring tool.    I have two other embossing stylus pens that work equally as well.  The one I use most is the one I find first! 

I didn't realise how much I use this board until someone remarked about a card having my signature lines!
So here a card with lots of them......
just goes to show you don't need expensive tools to create an interesting look!
.  The stamps are by Carrie called Earth Spirit.
  On a cold, grey, damp day - how cheering the sun looks!

Since interest has been shown by so many, I will in future add any cards with lines to the label section under "Eazi Scoreboard". 
I'm in Edinburgh today looking after our grandaughters, and we have snow - hopefully ( fingers crosed) it will be gone tomorrow when we travel home!  It's a good day for crafting and Barbara Grey of Clarity Stamps is on C & C at 11pm for two hours of her inspirational stamping.  I'm hoping the girls will let me watch!

PS:  Since writing this post I have a surprise for you, which I have to say I'm absolutely chuffed to receive from Diamond Card Crafts.  Tomorrow I will be posting details of a first in the Cupboard and I hope you'll drop by and join me.

I have bought (and love) this tool too since reading your blog for the last twelve months, and oh by the way meant to tell you I started my blog a bit over a month ago now too, and just want to say a VERY big thanks for all your help over the last year. I rally love this card, did you do the triple embossing on the stamped portion?

I've never seen a scoring board like that here in the USA. It looks great.

Hi Ikki

I've seen the blue scoring board used lots on C&C but I went for the Crafters Companion ones - then upgraded to the ultimate pro... I then bought the Martha Stuart score board because of all the scoring lines evenly spaced and close together. Then the Hougie board came out with metric on one side and imperial on the other - that would have been perfect cos i measure in both sometimes on the same project.

I can't wait to hear your news - be sure to post it as soon as possible... I'm so glad you put that subscribe by email box in - I put one in too ages ago - its the best way to keep up with your favourite blogs... and makes it easier for me as i'm a bad blogger!!!

big hugs

I agree - this board is stronger than most. But even so it did not stand up to me sitting on it!. I bought three other boards as replacement (trying to save a few pennies) but eventually bought another and I've not looked back
