Today my daughter and I created this great album designed by Kathryn at Kathrynscraps. You can purchase the pattern here



In the instructions, you are told to trim your pocket corners off at an angle. You can use your Perfect Trim ruler to make the trim.
The first thing you do is to score the sides and bottom at 1/2" per the instructions, then add your tape. Place the pocket on your cutting board, tape side down.

Place the point of your craft knife in the center of the intersection of the score lines.


Place any one of the lines from the center box on your ruler on the edge of the pocket and scoot the ruler up to the knife as shown below. Trim off the edge at a perfect 45 degree angle!

Just a quick note to let you know that if you order a ruler the first part of this week, I will not be shipping until Thursday, April 17th as I will be out of town. I would also like to thank you all for your continued support. It is amazing to me that such a simple idea could have been so well received.

Updated Vendor List

Hello everyone! Just a quick note to let you know I have updated the vendor list. It's tough to keep up sometimes. And one of these days, I may organize by state and country! I would also like to let you know of a giveaway chance. Linda at The Paper boutique is giving away a PerfectTrim ruler on her blog paperboutiquewithlinda. Enter by February 2nd! You will also find a quick video there that she did on how she uses the ruler! Thanks Linda!

Thank you for your support!

Well guys, it's been 1 year since the Perfect Trim Ruler was introduced! I have to say a special thank you to all of my supporters. This year on National Scrapbook Day, I watched videos from morning 'til night and what an inspiration! Kathy Orta from Paper Phenomenon has started another new, fun project called Photo Fun Keepsake Box. She uses the ruler here on her You Tube Channel. The ruler is shown about 31 minutes into the video. By the way, this was a great project!

Kathryn at Kathryn Scraps also uses the ruler in her newest project The Garden Lattice Box. This was a cute project she did in her Ustream class on National Scrapbook Day. You can purchase the tutorial on her website. As I understand it, the tutorial includes video instruction.

Ginger at MySistersScrapper also has some great tutorials on YouTube. Check out her demo of the ruler here. ***Edited to note that Ginger mentions that she thought the ruler was a couple of bucks, but then in her comments she noted that this was an error and it was probably what she had told her husband!

Again, thank you all for your continued interest in my ruler!

First of all, I would like to announce that the ruler now being shipped is Version 2 of my Perfect Trim ruler. I removed a couple lines that I did not use, and added a 3/16" line and a 1/4" line. I believe the changes will make the ruler even better!

Also, if you would like to see a demo of this ruler, check out this highlight from a recent class by Kathy Orta at Paper Phenomenon. I would like to say a very special thank you to Kathy for doing such a great job demonstrating the ruler in her Ustream classes. She also has fantastic tutorials available on her website. They are very detailed and easy to follow.

I thought I would like to share this album with  you. I made it with the Sophistication pattern from Kathy Orta at Paper Phenomenon. I used the "Celebrate" Line of Paper from Authentique Paper.

New Postage Rates!

Sorry, but it seems we have had another increase in postage. U.S. postage increased by a small amount, but International shipping has doubled! The prices are reflected in the new button for purchasing on the right.

Just a reminder, if you would like more than 1 ruler, the shipping is usually almost the same, so send me a message from the contact page and I can send you a paypal invoice for multiple rulers plus shipping.
