Check out the great SVG files Wanda created this week!!!

Sizzix paper sizes

Fellow SU demo, Patty B, shared this awesome list of Sizzix sizes for Stampin Up's dies. With this list, you can easily determine what size paper you need to perfectly fit under your die for cutting.

You know all those scraps you have piling up? Now you can easily cut them to one of the sizes below for easy use in your Sizzix. Consider using an accordian filing system to store your pre-cut scraps by size and or color. Now you are ready to grab the perfect size paper in any color to create with your Sizzix.... Isnt Patty a genious?

It might be difficult to decipher what to do with these pictures when you have them... Think in terms of the stories you will tell someday.... what pictures will jog your memory?

Scrapbooking is all about the stories..... Tell the stories you want to remember, you don't even need pictures, all you need to get started is paper and pen.....
