Thank you,it was so helpful. You made reading a ruler easy..
I have just joined as a. Demonstrator can you please help me how can I include your card information and credit to you to use on my website?
Welcome to the Stampin’ Up! family, Linda! I’m not sure what program you are using for your website so I can’t say for sure how to do it on yours but if most of them have a help section where you can find out how to do that. If not, Google should be able to help.
Thank you for the measurements guide. Just wanted to let you know when I printed the ruler didn’t print nor did your name.
I had someone else have the same problem. It printed fine on my printer so I was having a hard time fixing the file. I have saved the file in a different format and I think this will work better. So sorry for the inconvenience.
Connie, For some weird reason, when I printed out the “Understanding Measurements for Card Making” the ruler image didn’t print out. It showed up in the image of the whole page before I printed it out, but then it wasn’t there. I tried it twice to no avail. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you (from one demonstrator to another) for all your wonderful tips, I’ve mentioned them often while teaching my classes.
I did update the file because there were other people who had trouble with that image. You might try it again.
Hey Connie. Thanks for the tips on layering cardstock. Sorry to say none of the links for the free download work. They just give a picture of the page. ?
Connie, if you will go to the top menu bar and click FILE there is a print option there. I hope that helps!
Thank you so much for the chart!
Thank-you for the measurement list, this will be very handy. I printed it out and it all came out just fine, ruler and all. Thanks so much, Connie !!
Oh good! I hope you enjoy it!
Thank you very much for sharing, love watching your videos. Rich Blessings
Thanks for the download. Now, I do not have to do it. I truly appreciate it.
Thank you for the download. You’re amazing xx
Pity this is not in metric measurements.
Valerie, I wish I could help but I don’t know the metric system. You might take this chart to your Stampin’ Up demonstrator and ask them to recreate it for you in metric.
thank you for the measurement guide
