Hi, I and my husband John and son Ty live in Texas

I was a high school math teacher; now, I’m a self-employed stay at home mom.

I took up stamping and joined The Angel Company™ as a demonstrator to make new friends and find a creative outlet.  I’ve been with them for 7 years.  My son was in an ad campaign for The Angel Company™ and it ran in Simple Scrapbooks.

Scor-Tape or adhesive of choice


White core paper (I used Die Cuts with a View)

Sanding block or sand paper

Utility knife

Cutting matt

Grass (I used an Accucut die)


Circle punch if you make your own pocket

Tree (I hand drew mine)

Ruler and pencil

12 inch cutter


Step 1:

Cut a piece of cardstock 3" x 12 ".


Step 2:

Align the left edge of the 12" length to the 2" groove. Score at 3", 4", 4 1/4" and 4 1/2".

Step 3:

Align the left edge of 12" at the 3" groove, score at 4 1/4".You should now have five solid score lines.

Step 4: Posts

Align the 12" length to the left and top fence about two inches down so you will be able to see the top and bottom of the grooves. When you come to the horizontal line you will stop scoring. Start again below the next horizontal line. Remember you are creating a fence. You will not score the fence railings, you will start and stop

Score at 1"; 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 3", 4", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", 6", 7", 7 1/2", 8 1/2", 9", 10", 10 1/2"                      



                                                                                                   Dotted lines are score lines


Step 5:

Turn your paper over and use your sanding block to ruff up the scored lines. This will be the right side of the fence.

Step 6:

Cut the top part of the fence with a 12 x 12 cutter making sure not to cut what you sanded.

Take your utility knife and Scor-Mat and cut away all the excess to make your fence.



I used a die cut to make my grass but you can always make your own.



I made a pattern for my tree, putting my tree house against it to see if it looked OK . Cut it out.


Tree house:

· You can use an accucut pocket or create your own.

· Cut out a 6 1/8" x 6 3/8" piece of cs

· Make a 1/2" score on all four sides.

· Turn the card stock over. Make random scores down the 6 3/8" to add texture. Sand.

· Miter your corners. You can use the 45 degree angle on your Scor-Mat for an accurate cutting line

for a mitered corner.

· Fold in your edges and glue.

· Use circle punch to put a notch at the top.

Score randomly (I scored every line I came to) then sand


Roof with Journaling

· Cut a piece of cardstock 2 3/8" x 7 3/8".

Lay your piece of 7 3/8 cardstock on your Scor-Mat and mark 2 ¼" and 5 ¼". Score every ½ inch length wise.






· Cut on the diagonal

· For journaling cut a piece of white cardstock 5" x 6".

· Score every ½ inch across the 5" width leaving room at the top to attach the roof.


Assemble the pieces the way you like and then attach them to your base.  Enjoy.
