So I want to know what you think. We don't own 12x12 printers, but this is layed out in that size. The 2 background papers are 12x12. The scalloped edges are the actual size on the layout, except the green which I enlarged to compare the picture quality. Some of the greatest looking papers are heavy in memory up to 10mb for one paper. If I cut the size to 6x6 or 8x8, I think you would be just fine because the largest you print is 8 1/2 x 11 anyway. Either way is good for me.
