11-12-2007, 05:45 AM
Holy smokes, geez louise! You all really like this cuz our last exchange rendered over 80 pages! :twitcy: So here goes a new exchange and then I'm gonna run and hide AGAIN!!! LOL

Use Theresa's new and versatile Autumn Air Page Kit (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=1056) (on sale for this exchange at 20% off) to make your pages. This kit along with the templates shown below can be used to make either feminine or masculine pages so please keep that in mind!


Each participant will submit at least 1 brag book quick page but not more than 3 using this kit only along with any commercial use items. 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 Theresa herself.

If you use any of her brag book template from her brand new set (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=1077)

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/large/tborntreger_bb_temset1_preview_LRG.jpgyou will get an extra bonus from Theresa which you can ONLY get if you participate in this exchange as it will not be available in the store or for any other purpose!



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_autumnair_bragQP.png.
Save a preview of your quick page at 600x400 and upload it to the Brag Book Page Exchange Gallery for all the oooohs and ahhhs!
I will need the preview .jpg at 600x400, and either the .png or .jpg file at the full 6x4 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 ghswartz@comcast.net.
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 Sunday, November 25th. 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'm first! Here's my QP (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=15575). I also plan to design at least one of my own. What a great kit this is. Thank you for the suggestion to buy it.

11-17-2007, 03:29 AM
I think I may have gotten a little carried away with these. Well, close anyways. I had to keep telling myself "only 3, only 3." Too much fun. I'm off to bed now. Here's my links:

Count me in too! I just love this kit! This will be my first time making a QP, so hopefully I can figure it out. It will be fun though.

11-20-2007, 04:33 PM
Okay, so I have a serious question...
I've only played with templates once and I think I made it harder on myself than necessary. I see that both the layered PSD file and individual PNG files are included.

What is the best way to tackle this for us novices??!?

Thanks for any direction!

11-20-2007, 04:35 PM
Here are my three

11-20-2007, 04:36 PM
I use the template, and just drag the papers and elements I want to use, onto the paper. Buthave PSCS2

11-24-2007, 01:09 PM
Too bad I won't be able to participate this time. I so wanted to, but I just don't have the time...
I will make sure to be in there next time - so please select something as wonderful as the last three the next time you do the exchange! LOL

11-24-2007, 02:14 PM

Thank you to everyone who participated in the exchange. I just sent out a PM for the extra bonus for using the template set. If you don't get it in the next few minutes and you used my templets...please give me a holler. SOmetimes I get mixed up! LOL..

Thanks again.

11-28-2007, 03:16 PM
Hey and Thanks for the bonus! I'm new to these exchanges, how/when do we get our pages?

Thanks for hosting!

Holly has to gather everyone's pages together and get them all zipped. Then she'll PM us with the links to download the zips. Time-wise it usually depends on how long it takes to get a copy of everyone's pages and how busy she is with real-life stuff. I don't know how many pages there are this time, but it was over 80 last time so it took a little while. :laugh:

11-28-2007, 03:54 PM
Cool-e-oh! Thanks for the reply. I'm excited and am thinking of using these for holiday gifts! So, Holly, no worries! Take your time!
