Create Blank Project

Creating a project from Scratch allows you to start with a blank canvas and let your imagination run wild. The project starts with a blank piece of paper with no text boxes or images. This allows you to place objectsas you see fit.

From the New Project Wizard you can choose to Create a Project from Scratch. On the right hand side of the New Project Wizard is the option for Creating a Project from Scratch.


Click the Create from scratch option, the Blank Project Wizard is displayed.


The Blank Project Wizard allows you to setup the following items before hand, so your project is ready for additional Design and Modification:

  • Project Name - saves it for later use.
  • Project Type - allows you to choose from all of the available project categories.
  • Layout style / Orientation - allows you to choose between Landscape, Portrait, or Double sided.
    Note: Greeting Card projects will have extra options to choose from for the page fold.
  • Number of pages - sets the number of pages for your project.
  • Choose a paper size - allows you to choose from some of the most popular Paper sizes and Avery Templates, or you can Create Your Own Paper Size by clicking on the Add button.
