When you scrap so you have to have straight even lines or are you an eyeballer?

I have the fiskars trimmer and now I am going to blame this on the trimmer, although it may be the short between the trimmer and the ground to..(as in me), but quite a bit I am not getting a straight line and by the end of the page it starts to sway slightly an 1/8 of an inch in one direction. But because I am lazy, I just eyeball the pic and "try" to make it look straight on the page and adhere it down.

The blinky is clickable!!

When lining things up on the page, I do both... I'll eyeball things like pics & paper and just try to line it up myself - other times I will use a ruler. Same with alphas- sometimes I use a ruler if I want a perfectly straight title, but most times I just do it however.

I LOVE my trimmer! I got it for Christmas last year. I love that I can see where I'm cutting instead of *guessing* where the cut line will hit.
- Fiskars - Premium Crafter's Trimmer - 12 Inch, BRAND NEW and it has a line/wire that you slide your paper or pics under so you see exactly where it will cut. Also a lock that you can flip up to slide something thicker under then lock it back down.

I eye-ball it! I have the trimmer too but when I rush, I tend to cut crooked, just slightly off. I don't sweat it. It's makes my 'work' more unique!
