Temporary backorder!

I am sorry to report that the nice guy that made my rulers, suddenly became ill and closed his business. It took me 1-1/2 weeks to realize it, because I waited for emails to be returned and then checked his website which was still active. Sending a message through the website, I got an error message that he had closed. In the meantime, I my mother, who was quite ill for a long time, passed away. So I was not on top of things like I should have been.

Long story short,  I had to find a new manufacturer. Now I'm waiting for the prototype to make sure her computer read my file right! Then the new ones can be made. I am anticipating that they will be back in stock by the end of November.

Thank you for your patience,

Closing my brick and mortar store! All scrapbooking supplies - 75% off!

Just a note to all you scrappers out there in the midwest. I have decided to close my brick and mortar store front in Superior, Wi. I have all of my scrapbooking supplies at 75% off retail. For any knitters out there I have great yarn, books and patterns at 50% off.  I will also be selling my fixtures, including all the paper racks I have! If any of you are interested, send me an email via the contact page, and we can chat. Also, keep your eyes open for upcoming mystery boxes that I will be selling on this blog! I hope to close the storefront by June 30. So don't dilly dally! Have a great day!

PS I will still be selling these great little rulers from this website!

Today I received this link from a vendor in Israel. It is a fabulous video on how to use the Perfect Trim ruler. While you may not understand the words, the actions paint a perfect picture! Thanks Mimi!

Good morning everyone!

Just a reminder that I am leaving for vacation today and rulers will be mailed when I return on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016.

Also I hate to report this, but you may know already, there has been a postage increase. 29% increase in first class mail for 2 ounce domestic shipments. International postage for 2 ounces DOUBLED! I am sorry, but this is not an increase I can absorb. I have added a "buy now" dropdown for Canada as the postage there is now a little less than other international shipments. If you want to order a ruler from outside the US, consider finding a friend to order 2 rulers. It's about the same postage.

Hello Everyone! Well it's that time of year when I need to leave this cold place I live and travel to a warmer climate! I will be gone from Wednesday, Jan. 20th through Monday, Jan. 25th. Any rulers ordered during that time will be shipped on Tuesday, January 26th.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in my ruler!

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.
