You'll cut the 5.5 x 12 first. Then turn and cut 1.5, 2.75 and 3.5 inch pieces next. Be sure to mark the number on the back.
Then you'll need to turn the 6.5 x 12 piece and cut two at 6.5 x 4.25. Then cut pieces 6 & 7 accordingly. Then pieces 8 & 9. Turn back and cut #10 at 5.5 x 3.5.
I would recommend practicing first. :) I have done this 3 times and messed up once or twice. It may help to re-draw one on a 12x12. I think that is where the confusion is.
I have also made Christmas cards when my upline did hers. I can post those, if you'd like to see them. She used a piece of B&T and 2 cardstocks. You'll have to add those and stamps. With this pattern you'll have one piece for 10 cards. Don't forget your 10 card bases. :)

Each card has the same pattern paper, only they are each cut into different sizes. I got the idea from my upline who got it from another consultant, but if you'd like the directions, let me know and I'll post a picture of the cutting diagram.

I have been scrapbooking up a storm. I filled up another scrapbook. I made two of these pages. I random stamped the "You Did It" stamp set in a denim ink for my son's pre-k graduation page and for a couple of family members graduation. I loved it's turn out and wanted to share.

I used the Sarsaparilla Level 2 Paper Pack. The pieces are 4x4 and the top right is a 4x8. I used the Headline Alphabet for the word FAMILY, and the Legendary Moments stamp set to "stitch the pieces together," and also for the corner flourishes. If you notice in the FAMILY title there is a design. This technique is called "Stamp Kissing." You take the letter "F" and ink it, then I took the Intrinsic Backgrounds (it was the criss cross stamp) put it on a block. The you take the inked "F" and very carefully (as it will want to slide) "stamp" it on the background, carefully lift and the image is on the letter. Then stamp it on your paper and you have a textured "F". Do the rest the same way.
You can do this with any design, not just letters. If you have any questions, let me know, I'd be glad to help. :)
