Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at knmic1012@aol.com and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Computer Generated Words

Several people have asked about computer generated words on my cards...I will attempt to explain---
I set the page size in a word document (I have Microsoft Home and Office 2007) under page layout to coincide with the size of card stock that I will be using for my card. Since most of my cards are A2, I set the size at 5.5 x 4.25 for the base card and smaller if I am printing on a layer. I adjust the margins also (I usually set them at .5 or smaller). Type in the text...you can move the words and change the font to where you want it to be on the paper. I have awful handwriting so I also use the computer to print the inside sentiment as well. I do the same but choose center text and it will center it automatically. On my April 22nd posting Have A Hoppy Day, I set the paper size for 1.25 x 4 set the margins at zero, used the center feature, choose the font and font size, typed the words and hit print...perfectly centered. I always do print preview to see that it looks the way I want it. In the case where it doesn't matter where the text is on the paper such as my Thank You...Berry Much! I make sure the print will fit within the Nestibility by making sure that my word document is showing 100% and then hold the Nestibility up to the computer screen. After I print it I center the Nestibility over the words on the cardstock, then run it through my Cuttlebug. If there are 2 things that I couldn't do without it would have to be my Cuttlebug and my Nestibilities. I hope this helps, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
