Does anyone know who makes a ruler for scrap booking? I saw one on Giada's you tube video. She used it to do a lot of pen stitching, but it also had holes so you could make dots and have them evenly spaced. Than k you.

I have used a Zero Hero C-Thru Centering ruler for years and I love it! It has the holes like you talked about and long, straight open areas that you could use for stitching. It's by DejaViews, got it at M's very inexpensive and it's awesome!

I have the Tim Holtz and hate it. Can't remember why. Something to do with the beveled edge side not being the 1 - 12 inches but rather the centering and I like the flat edge for measuring.

So I use my inexpensive cork backed metal ruler.

I already had a piercing template. Not 12 inches long but I can easily move it along to pierce.

I have this product too!!! And I love it!!!! you can even line up your letter stickers on it to make sure they are both centerd n spaced perfectly, and in a straight line...unless you like that uneven, wobbly, writing-goes-uphill look...

I have 3 or 4 rulers laying around because I can never find one when I need it. They are all varieties of inexpensive school rulers and 2 of the metal ones with the cork backing. Then for evenly spaced holes, I use those things you use for cross stitching. They are plastic and I have a regular paper sized one and then a round one which I've actually used a bit more. I like it because it's tons of tiny holes and you can pick the spacing you want.

Jarvae!! I would never have thought of using that for spacing! Thank you for the slap to the head light bulb moment. You have totally made my day, month and year!

Terri I'm glad you like it :-) I remember I needed to set some brads in a circle evenly spaced of course and this was the only thing I could find that would do it, and it was about 50 cents. I love it!

Jarvae, that's so clever! Especially for circles. I need to remember to pick one up at J's next time I go

I like the Tim Holtz one too. I also have some smaller clear rulers I love that were designed for beaders/jewelry making.

Tim Holtz is the best and they have the best customer service if something happens.
