I recently received this question and realized that there are probably several stampers wondering the same thing.
Q: Are the pictures of punches shown in the back of the catalog actual size? Some show sizes, some don't.
A: Yes, the pictures that look like they were punched out of Chocolate Chip textured card stock are shown actual size. These are listed on pages 209-213 in the new IBC (Idea Book & Catalog).
DIY: The stamps are also shown actual size in the catalog. Remember, that we have many stamp sets that coordinate with the punches. For example; Floral Fillers shown on page 141 (new IBC) shows a colored line around the stamp images that fit inside the coordinating punches. Below the set you will also find a list of the coordinating punches. Other examples can be seen on pages 32, 46, 66, 68, 98, 103, 143 and many more!
Also: Pages 235-236 shows a complete list of all the Stampin' Around Wheels. These images are reduced, but below each one is the page where you will find it shown in actual size.
