Are you ready for another exchange!!! Use AmyLeigh's new Winter Holiday Page Kit (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=1159) to make your pages. You can also include the coordinating alpha (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=1159)

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/medium/al_winterholiday_MED.jpg http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/medium/al_winterhol_alpha_MED.jpg

Each participant will submit at least 1 brag book quick page but not more than 3 using this kit only (you can include any commercial use items if you wish). 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 AmyLeigh herself.

Be one of the first 10 participants to upload a page to the gallery and you will receive this set of 2 brag book pages as well as full size 12x12 quick pages

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_winterholiday_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 Friday, January 4th. Please be sure to send me the files by that time as well so that I can publish the album download links more quickly.

Not to annoy anyone here, but am very curious. WHY does it take 10+ days for us to receive the entire package of the bragbook at GDS?!? Submissions are given a deadline, perhaps the receipt should also have one as well!?

Again, I'm not trying to be a snot, but this is really crazy. I realize others have a life and they have other things to do... however, when one takes charge, they need to follow through to the end... This is one of the only sites that is so terribly neglectful of the participants, that is a shame! (always an excuse as to "why" we have not received links yet).

There are many other stores to take part in an exchange from, and purchase from... Links are provided within two "2" days.

Can response improve?! :confused1:

Hi, I am a designer here, and contributed some pages to the exchange too.
I just got home from a banquet and saw your posting. I've sent a PM to Holly and Debra so they can respond.

However, I did want to offer up my apologies - and say that this is very unusual for this site. I've been a member here for over a year and have participated in almost every quick page exchange and brag book exchange that this site has offered. And the 2 week delay in this case is indeed unusual and probably due to the fact that Amy (the designer who has some pages for this ) has recently had a very sick son who was diagnosed with epilepsy, and that may be one of the reasons for the delay. Others have been sick as well. I am sure that Holly will get the links out as soon as she has all of them from the participants. Please hang in there - this is very unusual based on my experience.

Loved your brag book pages - I'm sure the response will get back to normal.

I am the host of this exchange and am responsible for the assembly and distribution of the exchanges. The Designer of the products showcased have no bearing on the distribution time so AmyLeigh is not at fault here. I believe you've participated in one other exchange and that happened to be one of the biggest ones.

Perhaps the download links would be delivered earlier if I was to enforce everyone getting me files by the deadline but this is not how I run this exchange. I can probably do a better job at this and will try.
