Hi Rose, yes the diamond rows are stamped one at a time, but it was easy to line up. I stand up to look straight down and if you move the clear block with the stamp on it around just a bit you can kinda see where you left off. Hint: also try it in typing paper until you get the hang of it. Also I used sticky notes around the boarder, and I used the single lined diamond to go around the edges on to the sticky note mask. Hope this makes sense. Thanks so much for you kind words. Happy stamping and have a great day!!! :).
