For the faux postage template, did you print out the one under "resources" or are you trying to create your own? If the problem you're having is with cutting the holes, I found (through trial and error, of course!) that using my Fiskers paper cutter worked easiest. I just cut right along the lines on the template. Hope this helps!

Default Thank You VERY MUCH!!!

Thanks for the help. Yes, the part I was having trouble with, was the template for the postage stamps. The holes are exactly what I was having trouble with. I will try the paper trimmer, I am sure that will help! Also thanks for the website to try and the other info! All very helpful! I just found this site last week, and I love it! You all post wonderful creative ideas! Thanks for everything!!! Michelle
