Well, sometimes there is an uncommon reason as well. Early last year I bought the Simply Scored. I don't know what I would do without it. Scoring the fold for a card makes such a difference. There are no little wrinkles along the fold-line---an unfortunate side-effect when folding paper that has not been scored. The Simply Scored is a nice size and fits even 12" x 12" sheets of cardstock easily. The scoring surface allows well-scored lines as close together as 1/8" and there are place markers as well as a hidden storage compartment for things like your stylus. I really love this tool!
My problem is that I am sharing this tool and don't have the use of it as frequently as I would like. I've considered buying another one so that I would have the use of one at my convenience, but somehow it just seems like overkill to have two of the Simply Scored. So I continue to share it.
As I sit here typing, my Simply Scored is being used on the table behind me. No, I don't currently have another stamper in the room with me. The Simply Scored is being used by my darling long-haired Siamese, Mei Li, who considers it her personal cat-nap station. When she is off doing whatever feline business she finds to occupy her time away from the Simply Scored, I am allowed to use it. There are times when I'm quickly scoring a dozen or so pieces of cardstock so that I will be able to carry on during another of Mei Li's lengthy cat-naps. *sigh*
Whoever said that cats have servants must have met my dear Mei Li.
