And is it worth it? I keep looking at it but always put off ordering it. Is it a must have?

I just ordered one with my Great Rewards points... I'll let you know, but I sure hope it comes with directions! It supposedly helps with two-step stampin, and I need all the help I can get with lining that up!

Here's another thread discussing the SAMJ
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=153232&highlight=stampamajig

YES, it's worth every penny. I hardly do a project without it. Practice a few times on copy paper to get the hang of it and you'll love it.

I love mine! Take the image sheet (clear plastic page) and put it into the corner of the stamp-a-ma-jig. Then lightly ink your stamp and fit it into the corner of the stamp-a-ma-jig (ontop of the plastic sheet). Lift up your stamp. Now position the stamped image where you want it on your project. Then fit the Stamp-a-ma-jig into the corner of the plastic sheet. Keep the Stamp-a-ma-jig where it is, and remove the plastic sheet. Re ink your stamp and stamp in the corner of the stamp-a-ma-jig. Your image should be lined up perfectly.
I used mine to line up the argyle from All around argyle.
Hope this helps!

Great description. I'll often use a piece of transparency film to stamp my image in stazon instead of using the sheet that comes with it. Then I can leave it in my box with my stamps and use it anytime I need the image lined up. That's what I did with my Lovely as a Tree set so I can flip it over and see where the mirror image will come out on the water, etc.
One big tip to using it is to push that piece of plastic or transparency firmly up into the crook of the SAMJ then do the same with your stamp as you stamp your image onto the plastic. Then when you line up the transparent image on top of the card and place your SAMJ on top you'll know you have the right spot.
Have fun, it's a cool tool...and it's all about the tools!

I LOVE it! It took some playing with to figure it out. Get a piece of scratch paper and you will not believe you have lived without it all this time! I love it with my headline alphabet b/c if you are anything like me I have a heck of a time getting my letters to not look all crooked! The first time I could make a Title for a scrapbook page perfectly I was grinning from ear to ear!

When I first started stamping I didnt use one, didnt know what it was for, but I could never line anything up to look decent. Then I discovered the Stamp-a-ma-jig at a stamping party and I use it constantly!!!!! I could NOT stamp without it anymore. I consider it a must have ... that and the "wheel guide" ... that is a must have for me too ... perfectly straight lines when I use wheels ...

I LOVE my SAMJ! It is one of the best things in my stamping stuff! Once you get the hang of it, you'll love it too!
BTW I had been planning to buy it from SU, but saw it in a Joann's when I was shopping. Couldn't wait for an SU order to try it, so I bought it!
Happy, happy, happy!

Another tip for the Stampin-Ma-Jig. I think it helps to use a couple of Post-It-Notes to help hold down your card, scrapbook page, or whatever so it doesn't move when you're trying to line things up.

I am soooo excited. My mom just told me tonight that she found me this thing...called a Stamp-a-Ma-Jig. She was certain that I didn't know what it was or wouldn't want one. She prefaced it with " You can give it to one of your friends if you don't want it". Heck yah I want it. I have been contemplating getting one from Michael's (of course with the discount). She is a total sale shopper and found it on sale for me for $2.99. I can't wait for it to get here. She's shipping it to me along with the sale stamps, and other items she got for me. The prices she paid on all this stuff was almost too good to be true.
