Karen, that blog no longer seems to be active. I have the file but not sure whether I should share it as I didn't create it?

If she originally provided it for free, I think it would be okay for you to share it as long as you give her the credit for creating it.

One thing you need to be careful of is whether the box or envelope calculator is for a card size or a given envelope size. I noticed this when I started using craftyowl and the other Excel-based downloadable calculator ( you can request it ScrappedLives Version 2 Envelope Punchboard Calculator). I would put the same dimensions into each one and get different starting paper sizes and punch measurements.

I think that the crafty owl will give you a envelope to fit the dimensions you enter, so you have to add an 1/8 inch (or more) to width and depth (craftyowl's terminology) if you want a card of that size to fit. The scrapped lives excel formula assumes your measurements are card measurements (like the chart on the punch board), and adds an 1/8 for you. I think it also adds an 1/8 to the box "height" dimension, compared to craftyowl. I remember noticing the scrapped lives boxes and envelopes were roomier so I went and played a bit with the two side by side. I like the interface on Scrapped Lives better - not having to seperate whole inches and fractions - but not everyone has Excel or wants to give their email address to get the file.

I have been looking for the answer for my question and gave up. There are hundreds of posts here. I cannot read them all.

I have the Memory keeper punch board and have found the measurements for the card size 5 by 7 is wrong. Does anyone have the proper measurements?

Envelope Generator

Here's a link to the site I go to for help with envelope sizes. I keep it in my favorites.

I am beginning to think maybe I should get a different envelope maker. This one isn't big enough either to make a proper envelope for a bigger card.

It depends on which way you measure. If you put 7 as the long side it's 4 1/8 and if you put 5 as the long side it's 5 5/8. I hope that makes sense.

Let me see if I can explain it better....My first response was on my iPad. Where it says to enter the card size I entered 5 on the first line and 7 on the second. When I checked on the computer the first line said long side and the second line said short side which reversed the numbers. I would try each way on a piece of scrap paper and see what works.

This link might help for future envelope problems too, regarding the Memory Keepers envelope punch board. This lady shows turning the paper completly around works too.

Oh, I see...understand that now and thanks again, Iluvcards I appreciate you sticking by this little problem I had with me.
