It was just dumb luck that I got my stamped images to line up. I purchased a Stamp-a-ma-jig from Stampin' Up a year ago. I finally got it out of the box. If you don't have one....get one. I can't believe I have been stamping without it. The stamp-a-ma-jig takes all the guess work out of stamping. Your images will line up every time. It actually makes stamping even more fun than it already is!
