Here's a hint on cutting a border to fit your 12 x 12 pages. Typically when you use Sure Cuts Alot or Design Studio, your design will be cut off at a width of 11.5 inches (.25 inch border on each side). SOOO annoying when you want a border to reach all the way across your page! When you open the border pattern in SCAL, rotate the design just slightly and stretch it back out to reach the borders of the cutting mat. This will allow you to cut a slightly wider border that will actually fit a 12x12 page.
