Scores Boards - Opinions Please!
Hi, I am after a scoreboard, I already have the Crafters Companion one but am looking for one that has finer lines. I'm tempted by the Martha Stewart or Hougie one. Do you use either of them? What are your opinions on them, or do you have a different scorebard that you use? Thanks, Nicki

I have the Hougie which I love. Got the best results for an exploding box from the booklet that came with it :D It has inches one side and centimetres the other so quite versatile. HTH
So much to craft, so little time

[/quote:494dg2vw] I have to admit I think the Hougie maybe what I ask for as I have read a couple of negatives about the Martha one. Thanks.

I also have the Hougie board, but wish the Imperal side was in 1/4 inches instead of the half inch, as I sometimes need to mark 1/4" or 3/4" measurment (i.e 2 1/4") on a project.

[/quote:11za0cw8] I thought this too so I got a paper tape measure (free from Ikea) and cut off one inch with the 1/8th, 1/2" and 3/4" and line the card up to the lines so if I want 7and a quarter I put the card on the 3/4" mark and score at 8 inches Hope you can understand that, its easier to do than to explain xxxx

Re: Scores Boards - Opinions Please!
I will only use the SU one now, i have tried so many but Apart from the MS one the groves are just spaced too far apart. The whole idea of a scoreboard is for immediate scoring, without all the hassle of measuring. The imperial plate of the SU board is the same as MS but gives you the opportunity to add a metric plate and a diagonal one for embellishing or for envelopes, plus a fancy boarder plate. the scoring tool is a proper embossing "ball" tool unlike the little plastic versions which i personally have never got on with. The embossing tool has its own little grove to hold it in place! so you don't lose it :) if you have a fiskars paper trimmer, take out the blade and use the groves where the blade would go and using an embossing tool to score your paper/card stock :)
