Prep work

1. Go through and grab needed supplies from scrap kit and resize

I open each one, image, resize, change resolution to 72dpi and the longest portion (height/width 500 pixels), resize using weighted average (located at bottom)

file, save as and resave over the original sizing.

I do this for all supplies need and minimize.

2.Open fonts needed and minimize, open tube and minimize
