Everybody loves quickpages when you are in need of some quick digiscrapping! Here's a great way to build up your library of quickpages! So, not sure what this thing is all about??? It's quite simple, create a quick page with Helen's Fancy (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=814) Kit (which is currently on sale at 30% off along with everything else in her store) and you'll receive an album back full of quick pages made by each of the participants. Check out our Quickpage Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=570) to see what the participants have created.



http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/medium/helenehrenhofer_fancy_pagekit_preview_MED.jpg

Each participant will submit at least 1 quick page but not more than 2 using this kit only. At the end of this exchange, all participants will receive all submitted quick pages including a special one created by Helen herself.

Here is my bonus quick page that you will receive if you contribute a Fancy Quick Page for the exchange ending Saturday night, September 22. I made the crazy quilt background from some of the papers in my Fancy Page Kit.

And since everyone LOVES grab bags these days, as an extra BONUS, everyone who participates will get a SURPRISE Fancy Grab Bag from me. In it you will get some of the newest, trendiest, elements that I have created. Two of the 10 or more elements you will get in this BONUS Grab Bag include the ribbon frame and stitched Yo Yo Flower shown on this page. You will also get the quilted paper background as another paper for your Fancy collection.

Guidelines:

Layouts should be created and saved at 12" x 12" and 300ppi.
If you are familiar with creating a quick page in a transparent .png file, please submit it in that format.
If you are not, we have a couple of tutorials to help you in this area: Paint Shop Pro (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1399) & Photoshop (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1385)
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) . I will take what you submit and punch out the areas for photos and convert them to transparent .png files before sending them all back to the participants.
Please name your files as follows to help me track these easier. YourForumName_KitName_QP.png so as an example, mine would be HollyS_fancy_QP.png.
Save a preview of your quick page at 600x600 and upload it to the Quick Page Exchange Gallery for all the oooohs and ahhhs!
I will need the preview .jpg at 600x600, and either the .png or .jpg file at the full 12x12 size sent to me. You may use any file sharing site of your choice, or you can zip it up and email me the zip at holly@godigitalscrapbooking.com (holly@godigitalscrapbooking.com).
Sign-ups are required for this so that we know who is working on pages.
You may submit up to 2 quickpages for this challenge.
I will keep this post updated to reflect participants and whether files have been received.
The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on Saturday, October 6th. Please be sure to send me the files by that time as well so that I can publish the album download links more quickly.

Thanks ladies - and check this out - everyone who participates gets a SURPRISE GRAB BAG of FANCY goodies from me - sneak peak of 2 of the 10+ bonus items are on my quick page preview above!

Grab bag? Like the sound of that...I've got a bit of time to play so I think I will get started.

In PSE would I choose transparent for the new layout?

Yes, choose transparent. So when you cut out the place for the photo (if you cut out a place - some qps can have a photo mat - for a place for a photo)

you can save it as a png file for sending to Holly for distribution.

But you also have to save the file as a jpeg and downsize to 600x600 pixels to upload to gallery.

hope this helps.

Ok ladies, I pulled a DUH moment! This exchange is to run for 2 weeks, not one so I've extended the cut off date to be the end of the day Sunday, September 30th. Sorry for the confusion and hope more participate cuz Helen is offering of some great bonuses if you participate!!!

HollyS
09-28-2007, 10:56 AM
Ok, since folks lost all this week thinking the exchange is over, adding another two days isn't gonna help so this is going to be extended to next Saturday, Oct 6th! And remember, the Fancy kit will still be on sale for 30% off up until then :)

Helen
09-28-2007, 02:10 PM
Oh thank YOU Holly - I thought I was having getting senile the other day when I saw the end date and thought OMG - I don't have my qp in myself yet.

You're right - the QP exchanges always last 2 weeks - I thought mine was kind of short - it went by so fast - I was thinking - where is the month going! :laugh::laugh:

Phew - this gives me some more time too to KEEP adding to that bonus GRAB BAG of FANCY goodies everyone is going to get if they participate - and extra goodies - if they contribute 2 pages - we already have 2 people in there with 2 pages who are not only going to get all of the QPs, but they are going to get the GRAB bag of Fancy goodies PLUS some additional goodies because they have 2 qps.

I am feeling SOOOOOOOO generous these days - by October 6th - this GRAB BAG participation bonus is going to be HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And if you remember by Designer Contest kits - I LOVE to STUFF my kits!

:laugh::laugh::laugh:

And I'm leaving the sale price up for this kit until then! This should be a great album for a wedding, anniversar, or your kid's Homecoming photos coming up in October.

Thanks for linking! I saw your qp's last week in the gallery so I knew you had 2 pages in it - but it helps to have the links here too! I will check the gallery before exchange is over next week - just in case someone forgets to link here.

Helen, If we do a 2nd page, should it stand on its own or be the 2nd page of the 1st QP?

Hi Anita, glad to hear it! Focus on cutting out picture(s) you have in your layout, then save as png. Then also create a preview jpg at the normal gallery view size. Zip up the two files (png and preview jpg) and upload the zip to a file sharing site and give me the link to download. :)
