Aligning Rubber Stamp Text with the KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square!


I recently discovered another great use for the KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square!

To get the most versatility out of my unmounted phrase stamps, I often cut them into individual words so I can mix and max the phrases.  I can spell out whatever I’d like on an acrylic block, then change it as needed.  Until now, aligning the different fonts and words has been a bit of a challenge.  Today when creating this card I realized that my KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square could not only help me align my papers, but my stamped verse too!
