View Full Version : Brag Book Size Exchange - Christy's Shabby Girl

07-01-2008, 05:38 AM
We have a new exchange ready for you! Use Christy's brand new Shabby Girl Page Kit (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=2317) (on sale for this exchange at 25% off) to make your pages.


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 special ones created by Doreen.


Christy has created an extra bonus for you if you use something from her Shabby Girl Add-On (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=2316) (on sale for this exchange at 25% off) ...


..you'll get these created by Christy!



NEW GUIDELINE: to guard against folks being able to take previews uploaded to the gallery and turn them into quickpages without participating in this exchange, please save all of your submitted pages onto one blank canvas and save that as a preview jpg. Here's an example of a preview that Nancy implemented.

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 remember to only use items from the products mentioned in this thread or from any commercial use items you own. We cannot accept pages that include items from anything else as that could cause the page to be in violation of other's terms of use.
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. YourForumUserName_KitName_bragQP.png so as an example, mine would be HollyS_shabbygirl_bragQP.png.
Upload your preview to the Brag Book Page Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=704) for all the oooohs and ahhhs!
I will need the preview .jpg, 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.
The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on Tuesday, July 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.

Wow have you all churned out the pages and boy are they GORGEOUS! Thank you so much for all your creations... If you haven't gotten me your files yet, please do so quickly. It's been taking quite a long time for participants to get albums because I'm not getting all the files quick. Thanks for your understanding!

If you haven't joined in yet, there's still time...you have today to get this beautiful album!

07-15-2008, 10:41 AM

Just wanted to be proactive and let you know i'm waiting on a couple more sets of files..hopefully soon! With so many exchanges going on at the same time, it's quite a task to keep all the emails and pm's straight and to download everyone's files and bundle them up for everyone. Appreciate everyone's patience!

08-15-2008, 09:08 PM
Has anyone had any problems downloading any of the zips I gave you on 4shared for this exchange? I have a report of some problems so just checking with everyone :) Thanks!

08-15-2008, 10:08 PM
I got all downloaded ok

08-16-2008, 06:43 AM
I never got the download PM for the bb pages.
And the extra's I still couldn't get to work.

Maybe it's just me???

I sent the album link on 8/12 and i show you as it being sent to in the PM. You are the 2nd person having difficulties with the bonus download(s) so I'll check with Christy on how she created the zips because I'm able to download from 4shared just fine.

08-16-2008, 01:22 PM
I didn't have any problems downloading anything - but how many pages were submitted by members (not including the posting bonus & the add-on bonus)?

I submitted two pages, and only one was in the downloads that I received. I hope I'm not missing any one else's great submissions!

I'll check into this and report back my findings... :)
