Howdy! :hi:

Since we are coming into the holidays and Brag Books make perfect gifts, we thought we'd start up a Brag Book Page exchange to help everyone along in the scrapping of the heartfelt gifts.

So, since Amy Fenner (aka alfenner) was the first to bring Brag Book size products to our store, she has the honor of being showcased for the first exchange. Use Amy's new Grunge Prince kit (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=915) (on sale for this exchange at 20% off) to make your pages.

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

Each participant will submit at least 1 brag book quick page but not more than 3 using this kit only. Please upload your previews to the Brag Book Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=704). At the end of this exchange, all participants will receive all submitted brag book quick pages including these two special ones created by Amy herself.

If you use any of her brag book templates you will get an extra bonus from Amy!

Guidelines:

Layouts should be created and saved at 4" x 6" 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_bragQP.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.
Sign-ups are required for this so that we know who is working on pages.
You may submit up to 3 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 Tuesday, October 15th. Please be sure to send me the files by that time as well so that I can publish the album download links more quickly.

I plan to play this one too. One question though - at the beginning of the info it says we can create 1-3 layouts but later in further instructions it says no more than 2 layouts.

So, what is the rule can we do 3 layouts or are we restricted to 2 layouts? I see some have posted 3 LOs already.

Hi Jody! You can make 3 -- I think Holly just copied and pasted the guidelines from the regular qp exchange and forgot to change it, hehe.........

Can't wait to see your pages!!!

Ok, I am a novice at using templates so I do apologise to Amy. I used a template from her A Year In The Life Brag Book. I sure could use some good template tutorials!

Here is my first effort:

The brag book pages are awesome. Thanks to all who are contributing.

Thanks HollyS I have printed out the tutorials. I really need to learn how to do all the little things in templates. I have purchased the brag book templates and there are little stars and embelishments etc that I have to figure out how to fill with a paper - not just a color. I know how to add a background and some things but lots to learn.

Hi, I'll give you a quick hint. First have the template open in your software and also the paper(s) you want to use in your template. The star you want to add a paper to should be a separate layer in the template but it may be part of a layer with lots of stars etc. Click that layer. Then drag the paper you want to add to the template. It will add a new layer right on top of the layer with the stars and fill up the enter 12x12 with the paper. That's ok, because you can you then use your clipping mask (in photoshop elements it's CTRL+G) and it will clip the paper to match the layer beneath the paper which in this case is your star(s).

Is it too late to join in? I see the "due" date is the 15th. I'm going to get the kit right now, and a set of templates for that bonus :biggrin: I hope I get my actual QPs finished in time. I will have at least one in there on time.

I posted my first page (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=13001) made with a template (ever). Now I am trying to make a QP all of my own for the swap. I hope I can get that done in time.

I used the template but wasn't able to use the directions for "grouping" with the same results as the tutorial here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/tutorials/ps/PS_Using_Templates.pdf). Instead I had to use the magic want.

And another (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=13011) that I made all by myself. I don't think I can take any more time away from the family to make a third, but I am so happy that I could join in with these. Look at the full album I, I mean WE are going to get in the end!

Are we supposed to email our png files now, later or when?

Now we all need to get our files sent in by Oct 15 so they can be compiled and the links sent to us.

Thanks to everyone for creating so many wonderful pages, I am really going to enjoy putting together several brag books.

Hope everyone has emailed links or zips of the original hi-res files to Holly. I am new to this and only managed to get one QP done but learned alot along the way. Looking forward to receiving the links so I can get started making some super bragbooks. I'm sure it will take Holly some time to compile them all so I will be patient :) Thanks to everyone for sharing.

Just downloaded and looked at our work....amazing.

I have a question........Is there any reason we can't print these (with photos) at 8X10 ??

I'm gonna try it but if anyone knows, please let me know.
Thanks.

I don't know about the quality of the image at 10X8. If I remember correctly you end up with blank stips along the top and bottom because the proportions are different. In the past, I have just used that as extra journaling space.

Just a note to say I have now received the templates from Amy :)

This has been a wonderful experience for me and look forward to many more exchanges. Thank you to everyone for all their contributions and to Holly and Amy for making this a reality for us.
