    Every time I try to add a photo (I am using Word 2010) it throws off the whole template, doesn't allow me to bring the photo forward. I've re-watched the show a number of times and it just does not work like it did for Anduin Haven. Please help!

    try bringing the picture from back to front in the format option. That's what I did and that kept everything else in place. Evidently the Word 2010 is what we need in order to keep the round shape around the photos.

    You can create the round by cropping your picture to a square and then making it the oval shape in MW 2007. Still need help with the top left ornament - when you put a picture in it - it goes outside the card and throws everything off. Help.

    do I have to have Microsoft Word 2010? I have Word 2007. Is that the difference?

  • 3 Dec, 2010

    I've finally been able to right click on "change picture" but when the picture arrives it has changed from round to oval. I do not see a "round" picture shape under Format in Word.

    Please advise as to how to keep the ROUND shapes on each picture.

    Also, can your glitter glue be purchased at a craft store or only by mail?

    to the technology crew at Martha Stewart--

    Question: upon right clicking on the circle to insert my photo it does not insert properly. I've tried several options from moving the circle from back to front but nothing works. The whole card changes and moves positions when inserting the photo. Any suggestions or more instruction please? Thanks!
