If you don't want to use a paper trimmer, you might check out this new series of dies by Spellbinders for perfect rectangles:

A-2 Matting Basics A

A-2 Matting Basics B
I have these and love them. I thought it might be a waste of $$$ but nope, they are wonderful.

I have the Perfect Layers system and I still seem to not be able to cut them straight and I wasted more paper than with the matting basics. What is excellent about the matting basics is if you want to cut frames you layer two dies and cut a once for a perfect frame.
