Sizing Your Paper
(Ithaca, New York)
I just started getting into this art...and for the life of me I can't seem to get the measurements right. So when I buy a digital kit that looks like if you cut it up the middle it would be half of a page but every time I try to cut it in half it's off! Then I though what could be easier than a wire bind it all system and then I could just focus my artistry on the cover. Even those measurements were off.
Is there a secret with these digital images? I just want to make an standard 5x7 journal but the images are either off center once cut to 5x7 Help!!!! Maybe you could suggest a really good tutorial that talks a lot about measuring your paper to fit your chip board or an altered book. I watched the tutorial on the altered book but there wasn't anything on measuring the signatures,
