Default having problem with lining up alpahbets

I use my stamp ma jig pretty often, but the problem is that it is usually the double sided alphabets that I'm having issues with. I've attempted using the stamp ma jig with it and always fail.. I'm looking for tips to where I can keep my title straight for some layouts. I'm getting quite frustrated with this...

Anyone who have issue with that??

THANKS!

Jen

Sorry--no help here. I use my unmounteds and never have a problem! I'm afraid of Stampamajigs! They look scary! I'm too clutzy for that kind of thing. LOL!

I have used rubber bands to band my letters of the alphabet together before I stamp with them! If you have the letters mounted uniformly this will help, but now with real long names. I often just stagger the letters on purpose, that way they look okay anyway you stamp them! Good luck!

Diane - too funny, but I somewhat agree! I've never used a stampamajig, either.

I mount all my alphabets lower left and that helps me a lot to line them up and get straight titles.

What I do is to stamp every individual letter needed for title, I just cut squares and place squares on the layout. No guess work of trying to keep it lined up evenly. I am all for uneven layout! haha

Here are a few samples from my gallery on Scrapjazz:

I got the Karen Foster snap stamps as I couldn't stand having my letters be wonky!
