Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

 This is probably a dumb question, but II wonder if anyone is having difficulity in understanding the measurements for cards and envelopes. all this point system. 6.5, 5.25 and such. Why don't we use 1/4,1/2/1/8 measure?

Is  there a clear ruler that has these written to use? I use the scor-pal, and scor-buddy, this

is a big help. but understanding directions can be confusing. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I have had a concussion and skull fracture and this seems to give me problems.

I enjoy making cards for Operation Write Home for the troops and others. So anything

that is visual and can be repeated would be very helpful an appreciated. thank you ladies

for help and understanding.

.5 = 5/10 which is the same as 1/2, so 6.5 would be 6 1/2

and

.25 = 25/100 which is the same as 1/4, so 5.25 would be 5 1/4

I usually use decimals because I think it is easier to read and type than fractions. I guess I haven't had an issue with reading them because I was always a wiz in math. I also don't usually make exact copies of a project so I don't think I ever noticed this being an issue. If you have issues converting decimals to fractions, I can only suggest that you write down the common conversion and keep them handy for when you are following directions using decimals instead of fractions. You can easily find the decimal equivalent of the fraction by dividing the top number by the bottom number.
Hope this helps you.
thank you Melissa, I have started a list for this purpose. thank you for giving me the solution I had
forgotten. this is a big help. I never was good at math but this injury has made it worse. I appreciate it very
much.
I downloaded a cheat sheet with measurements on it! I have issues with measurements too. Then I took a fine point sharpie and wrote the measurements on my cutter to help in that as well!
Thank you Shelby, did you make the downloaded cheat sheet yourself.? Do you have a copy.?
I would like to do the same thing. thank you. good idea.
where did you find the cheat sheet! I think it will be good to have for those who don't know how to measure.

Hi! I've had the same difficulties....I think that many of us do, brain injury or not!!!!!! Anyway, go to You Tube and in the search engine type in:

Dawn5377/measurements

This will take you directly to her video on how to measure and she has a cheat sheet that is very easy to understand. Dawn is a demonstrator with Stampin Up and she has so many wonderful videos and I enjoy watching her so much. I hope that this will help you out as it has been a life saver for me. Be sure to send her a comment! She thrives on them!
Best of luck,
Teresa

Thank you so much Teresa, I have noticed on the stamptv video each day that Gina now gives
the measurements not in decimals. I can't tell you how happy I am. This has been a big help
to me and I hope others. God Bless You
