Lynn, I must agree… unfortunately most of the great resume templates can be edited with designer tools (Illustrator, InDesign…), and not with most common ones like MS Word or even with PowerPoint…
There are a lot of great resume templates on the web, so save yourself some time and effort and simply download one. Many of them are really well designed, and will set your resume above your competition. However, it’s also fine to be unique and original, so create your own if you feel so inclined.
