I have never done scrapbooking before, so I'm a little clueless...OK, very clueless. I will be making boarding pass invitaitons, so I am going to purchase a paper trimmer and am trying to figure out which blades I need. I know I need the traditional straight blade, so I'm not worried about that. I would like my RSVPs to tear off and be mailed to me as a postcard. I've seen people mention perforating blades and scoring blades. It sounds like the perforating blade would be what I want, but what does a scoring blade do?

A scoring blade makes a dent in the page so that it folds nicely and in a straight line.

 

I used mine on the ticket jackets primarily. (Plus the center fold of my passport STDs).

 

I found it much easier to work with a scoring blade than a ruler or a bone folder.

Ah, ok. So that's why people are mentioning the scoring blade. That sounds perfect for the ticket jacket. I think I'll get both. Thanks girls!

I would recommend the Fiskars Desktop Rotary Trimmer: Click the image to open in full size.

 

 

I makes for a nice clean, fast cut and you can change the blades out of it. Not only can you get a blade for the scoring and cutting but also making those neat little perforated tear lines. wink.gif Plus the blades are pretty cheap.

 

Here is a list of blades that do all kinds of cuts. Fiskars Rotary Trimmer Blades - Discount Art Supplies

 

Beyond that all you need is a corner rounder punch you do have to cut the corners. wink.gif

LOL I was just about to post this. Also if you have a Hobby Lobby in your area they do the 50% off scrapbooking items every few weeks. wink.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
