Hi Plum Dumpling fans! Nikki here with a quick tip for making the most of your template collection during the holidays! I love being able to resize templates for my non-12x12 projects, so I thought I'd show you a couple of ways I like to resize in PSE, and a bit of inspiration for resized-template projects.
First, I wanted to turn a 12x12 template into a 4x4 Thanksgiving dinner placecard. I love any project that can be printed cheaply at a 1-hour photo counter! To turn this big template little, I went to Image>Resize>Image Size and changed the dimensions to width 4 and height 4. This kept all the template's layers looking exactly the same, just smaller. (This is also a GREAT trick to make inexpensive 6x6 gift albums... just set the dimensions to 6x6 and make your pages as usual, then arrange four flattened pages on a 12x12 blank canvas to send them off to print!)
I hope these simple tricks will inspire you to stretch your template stash, and help you to create some personalized accessories for the holiday season! Happy scrapping and happy celebrating!

November 1st means Mix A Kit at ScrapMatters! The colors were just beautiful and reminded me of the simple gifts that I have in my life that are the most important gifts. I've created a sweet little element pack and coordinating papers.
The CT has scrapped about some of their simple gifts as well.
Spend time enjoying your simple gifts today!
This month's theme for the LDS Blog Train is Walk With Gratitude. The color palette is just beautiful.
Here's the slideshow of what you'll be picking up on the train.
