Yeah!! It's my turn to host the BRAG BOOK Exchange!! I think I've got all my 4shared issues worked out, and am looking forward to smooth sailing!

I'm pleased to announce that my new kit Granny's Trunk is the chosen kit for this exchange

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm110/macnjenn/dancingprincess_kit_grannystrunk_LR.jpg

And there's a coordinating Add-On


http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm110/macnjenn/dancingprincess_kit_grannystrunkadd.jpg


Granny's Trunk and all the coordinating products are 25% off in the store for the next 2 weeks.....and include the Worn and Torn Papers, and the Alpha!

AND anyone who participates in the Brag Book Exchange, will receive these two brag book pages, made by me.....

http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm110/macnjenn/dancingprincess_bb_preview.jpg


as well as all the other brag book pages submitted!!!

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL (I sound like a "as seen on TV" commercial, giggle) Participants who use ALL of the Granny's Trunk Series (kit, add-on, W&T Papers, and alpha) will receive a mini kit of left over bits and pieces, including the double bracket frame and bow/wrap seen in this LO:

How's THAT for a deal?

Guidelines: UPLOADING GUIDELINES HAVE CHANGED SO PLEASE READ

* Each participant will submit at least 1, 4X6 brag book page but not more than 3 using this kit only (but you may include any commercial use supplies as well). Please put all of your pages on 1 preview page to upload to the gallery to prevent any non-participants from using these pages.
* Sign-ups are requested for this so that we know who is working on pages. Post here to say you are planning on participating.
* Layouts should be created and saved at 4" x 6" and 300ppi starting with a transparent background. Your photo areas should be transparent when you are done.
* If you are not familiar with the process of creating a quick page, we have a couple of tutorials to help you in this area: Paint Shop Pro & Photoshop
* If you are unable to create a .png file, please design your quick page by creating your layout and using a white or black area (whichever is of most contrast to your layout) for the photo placements. Save your layout as a flattened .jpg file at full resolution (unless you are submitting a png file already). Please share this file and then post in this thread that you need help poking the holes for the pictures and I will help do those for you.
* Please name your files as follows to help me track these easier. YourForumName_KitName_bb1.png so as an example, mine would be jcamargo6_grannystrunk_bb1.png.
* Post your preview of your bb pages all on one layout at 600x600 and upload it to the Brag Book Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=704) for everyone to see!
* I will need the .png or .jpg file at the full 4X6 size for each brag book page you submit. Please do not upload the preview to the QP folder below...just the png quick page files.

****NEW***: In an effort to get you the albums much quicker after the exchange is over, we're implementing a new way for us to share the files.
* Please upload JUST THE FULL PNG FILES to Granny's Trunk BB Exchange Folder (http://www.4shared.com/dir/14826488/ca60102b/Grannys_Trunk_Brag_Book_Exchange.html)
* Toward the bottom of the screen you will see an "Upload Files" small window. Click the browse button inside there and navigate to your PNG files and choose that to upload.
* Your computer will then upload the file so it may take a minute or two. After the upload is completed, you will not see anything in this folder or even see anything to tell you it was successful but I'll let you know if there's a problem.
* Please post here that you uploaded so I can make sure it came through OK.
* Once the exchange is over, I will figure out who hasn't uploaded or has a problem with their files and when all is good will make it so that you can see all the files that everyone uploads and then you can download them!
* The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on Saturday, May 9th, 2009. Please have your images posted and uploaded by then so I can get them out to everyone.

I'll add everyone who signs up to the bottom here and update it when I see your pages uploaded!

Ok - getting caught up with things over here. Count me in! I'm so glad that there's another challenge that didn't end on April 30th. I like them staggered a little. I'll be back with some layouts within 4 days. If not tonight, it'll have to be Mon or Tues night. Can't wait, though!!

I am working on this. I'm having a bit of trouble punching out the hole for the photo in PSE 3.0. I tried the magic wand after I had saved the page as a .jpg. But the wand selected some of the other white areas. I tried erasing, but that was very complicated because of the objects that are in front of the photo space I need to erase. Any hints? Heeeellllp!

Here are at least two.

Is anyone else on sensory overload from yesterday? Sheesh... I know I spent hours and am not sure what the heck I did on the computer or even what I downloaded. So this morning I retreated to the comfort of my PSE5 and made some brag book pages. Hope you like them :)

Gem, I'm in PSE5, and to start, I have to select the layer where my frame is, then choose the magic wand and click. If you hit delete, it shouldn't make a difference in the picture at all. But then, you click on the layers under the frame, and (without using the wand again) simply hit delete and it will delete the exact same space as you chose with your wand the first time. Hope this helps! (I had troubles with that my very first exchange page I made on this site, too!! :) )

Checking in to see what cool pages we'll be getting with the exchange! :)

By the way, I love that salmon matt with the scalloped edges. I just found that last night - didn't realize it was full-sized and fits over a 12x12! Just beautiful!

Here is my pages 1 and 2 from this beautiful kit. I do genealogy and have lots of family pictures, so this kit is great for these photos.

This is my link.

I uploaded to exchange folder on 4share.

Hi Ladies! The pages are all looking AMAZING! I was checking on uploads and some of the files are just named "bbpages" or something similar. If those might be yours, can you let me know?

For everyone else, see the beginning post to find info on the naming convention.

Thanks ladies!

Jayne, Thank you for the easy to follow instructions. They worked great. I've now uploaded my pages to 4-shared and I'm trying to remember how to make them 600 x 600 for the preview. I think there was a tutorial for that though...
