I really love the Hello You Thinlets in the Occasions catalog. When I first started working with them, I found them a little difficult to work with, but have since learned some tricks to make things easier. The first one is to use our Transfer Adhesive Sheets on the back of the cardstock, that way you don't need to worry about gluing the word down. You just peel off the back and you are good to go. The second trick is to use a sheet of wax paper between your cardstock and the die, the wax paper makes is slide right out of the die and it peels right off of the cut out word.
