I am still a bit new to creating LO's for BG and if it's not time consuming enough BG has all these extra confusing aspects that go into it so I have been having a little bit of trouble.

My main issue is trying to do borders on my LO's. I can't seem to get the hang of it without having to go back in and readjust things, cut, copy, cut again, etc.

There has to be an easier way to get this done without my finished product looking all choppy. (I hate seeing lines and things not matching up in certain places.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I always scale the image I'm going to use for the border to 495px wide, and usually have to stack 2. Just pay attention to where the pattern starts and stops on the top and bottom, because it is going to tile. And depending on what kind of head/foot you're doing, it's sooo much easier to use transparency. I used to try to continue the border there, too.
I think it's still tricky sometimes, depending on how complicated the pattern is...

They do not make this easy at all I figured out just selecting the image and using cpy and paste helps once I have expended the canvas. Blah, guess it will always be work work work. Lol
