    Q: Joy asked: "Where can we get those cling sheets that go into a notebook - the ones that cling stamp sets come on? Our stamp group needs them and cannot find them anywhere."

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Helga has a suggestion for the Bow tying tutorial: "Put a tiny glue dot on the step 3 spot then the ribbon will not shift or come apart. Just make sure you have it placed where you want. It works great."
