I don't usually measure. I just wing it.

Did you watch the video that's linked with the product here? It shows how to use/measure.

My friend has this one and loves it. I think she said she goes by subratction. I agree with Linda, when in doubt, watch the video. Good luck.

The measurement goes from the cut line OUT...so if you want to cut an 12 piece of cardstock down to 8x8...you line it up at the 8 inch mark and cut, then turn and line it up at 8 inches again and cut....
The 3x5, 4x6, 5x7 measurements on the cutter are measurements going down to help cutting cards. I actually don't use those much, I just measure across....
When you are about to cut, you can use the silver "cut line" to make sure that you've lined your paper up exactly.
I hope I've explained myself well enough.....
