Forum: Monthly Challenges

Hey, AnnB here – did you have fun with all the activities of DSD? And did you take time to pick up the first day of Darlene’s (Studio4 Designworks) Daily Downloads “Fall on the Boardwalk”? The fabulous fall colors are so much fun to work with! I love the oranges, purples & rose colors – and that wooden cart of pumpkins is so fun, it fit perfectly with my photo of a local bed & breakfast. Don’t forget to download each day’s collection & get the whole collection, here: http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=69. And check out her store at Go Digital for a whopping 40% discount all week! Use one of her kits and post in the challenge thread for a chance to win a $10 coupon to her store.

Hi Everyone! This is Andrea Gold and I want to welcome you to the collab kit quick page exchange for the November 2015 Collab Kit “Take the Time”. This challenge counts towards the Scrappin’ 7 Challenge!

gds_nov15collab_collage_prev

TO GET THE KIT, JUST SPEND $15 IN THE STORE and add the collab kit to your cart before you check out, during the month of November. You will get it free automatically with a $15 purchase!

You can find out more about the kit HERE.

Here are the details for this exchange:

What the quick page exchange is all about:

Each participant will submit at least 1, 12×12 page using the current collab kit only. You may submit as many pages as you would like to the exchange. All participants will receive download links after the end of the exchange to download all of the quick pages that have been submitted by all participants. You could easily put in 1-3 pages and get back 10+ pages depending on how many participants we have!

How to create your pages:

* Pages should be created and saved at 12”x12” and 300 ppi in PNG format. Your photo areas should be transparent when you are done. PNG format will retain the transparency. If you need help with this, you can use my FREE Quick Page Photo cutting styles available HERE.

These styles are non destructive and instantly make a photo into a transparent area.

* If you are having trouble getting the transparent areas of the photo to work or look right, please ask for help. We have many community members here who are more than willing to help you!

*A word about shadows…please use them! You can google “digitalscrapbooking shadow tutorial”.

How to make previews for the gallery and where to put them:

*Please make a 600×600 preview for each of your quick pages and put the word “Preview” over the top of them so no one can steal them out of the gallery!

* Post your previews of your quick pages in the Quick Page Exchange gallery for everyone to see! This is not the same place as the general quick page exchange gallery.

*Take a look in the gallery if you have questions about this format.

 

How to name and upload your files:

*Please name your quick pages in the format “username_taketime_gdsqpex_qp01. For example, my third quick page for the this exchange would be called “andrea_taketime_gdsqpex_qp03.png”. This will help me to keep all of the files organized and know who has participated so I can send you links to download.

* Upload your PNG pages to my drop box here: http://www.dropitto.me/andreagold The password is “ilovescrapbooking” with no quotation marks. This will send your page right to my computer! Please upload ONLY the PNG file with transparent photo places. Upload your quick pages one at a time, making sure to use the file naming procedure above. Please do not zip the files or upload zip files!

*Please only upload the actual PNG quick pages you created. Do not upload your previews. Put the previews in the gallery only.

*Submit your page or pages by the deadline! Anyone who doesn’t submit by this date will not get download links for the entire album. We will not be waiting for those who have not uploaded yet. I think that will help us to get the final page links out fast for everyone to download.

 

Deadline information:

* Once the exchange is over, I will zip up the submitted pages and send download links to all participants through a private message here at GDS. Please have your images posted and uploaded by then so I can get them out to everyone.

*I will plan on distributing the download links within a few days of the challenge ending.

*Remember, the deadline for submission this month is November 30, 2015 at MIDNIGHT PACIFIC.

Other information:

* Please post here that you uploaded so I can make sure it came through OK and that I got it.

Here is a preview of the bonus. Thank you so much to Marie H for creating the bonus!!
