okay, so when I did my "patterned" paper to cut my elephants in my month by month layout, I did an 8.5x11 page. and my printer refused to print it that way. now that I'm thinking about it, that makes sense. you can never print edge to edge on paper because it likes to have margins (unless there's a trick I'm missing).
but when I do my 12x12, I tend to let the background "bleed" over the edges just in case when I have it printed.
