Can anyone help me or direct me to clear instruction on how to cut the ark and have all the pieces fit right? I have tried a couple things but obviously was wrong, and don't want to waste more paper. Thank you to anyone who can help me. I am using expression 2 if that matters.

Make sure your "real" size is not on. Pick a size one time and then add your images to the matt. All the images will size according the what size you picked, but will fit together properly. You may notice sometimes that small pieces have an "invisible" bounding box around. The piece itself may only be 1", but the invisible bounding box will be the size you choose. So, your shadow may be 4" and your piece that fits inside be only 3 3/4", but with the bounding box, it will be 4". That is how the program works to allow pieces to fit together properly.

Real size means every piece will be whatever size you choose. So, if your shadow is 4", your layer pieces will also all be 4" and will not fit together.

As Mary said, make sure you're not cutting at Real/True size. You must cut everything at Relative size.

If you're using the E2 by itself set the measurement at the Apply All screen. (Press the settings button, then press the right arrow twice. Press the 1st button on the second row.)

Make sure the first Aa button is green.

The biggest you can cut it on a 12x12 mat is approx 8.5". (That's the size of the biggest piece. Everything else will be cut relative to that piece.)

For step by step folding/gluing instructions see pages 72 - 77 of the Noah's ABC handbook.
