MDS Thursday: Changing Project Size

My intial post was going to be on how to make the snowman on this page.  However, when I realized I just made a card and not a scrapbook page, there was a change in plan.

PS- I'll post how to make the snowman next week.

It's been snowing quite a bit around here, so we have been stuck inside.  Except for when the kids and hubby are shoveling and sledding :)

What a perfect time to scrapbook!

I didn't want to start a new project so I click on one that was already created, not realizing it was a card.

Here is how to change your project size:

First Click on Edit in the Menu Bar, and choose Change Project Size.

Click on the scrapbook option, or which ever you want to change to.

A box with possible option will appear.  I clicked on the scrapbook .   Unfortunately it did not give me a 12x 12 option, so I choose 8 1/2 x 11.  I'll print it and mount it on a 12x 12 sheet background.

It will ask you to replace your current project or save as new.  I saved as new just in case the change was to weird.  I'll delete the card project later, or print it as cards for grandma brag books.

It will ask you to rename the project, click yes.

Done, click OK

Here is the new, bigger, project.  The words are now to small for the space so I changed the text size.

All done!! 

No mistakes, just opportunities for creativity and learning.

Ta Da!!

Thanks for looking.
