Ready for another quick page exchange...with a twist? Christy and Andrea have teamed up to bring you this exchange! This exchange will be using Christy's It's A Guy Thing Series Products (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=it%27s+a+guy) (on sale for 20% off).

If you create a quickpage, you will get these TWO quickpages from Christy along with all other submitted pages by participants:


And that's not all..............if you use any templates from Andrea's new Busy Boy #2 Template Set (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=2745) (on sale for 20% off):


You will get her brand new Football Brag Book Template Set!!


Remember that all participants get all quickpages submitted for this exchange so you'll get an entire album back! Check out our Quickpage Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=570) to see what the participants have created.


Each participant will submit at least 1 quick page but not more than 2 using this kit only (but you may include any commercial use supplies as well).
Layouts should be created and saved at 12" x 12" and 300ppi starting with a transparent background.
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_IAGT_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. If you zip up your files and they are under 10 megs, then you can email the zip to me at ghswartz@comcast.net. If larger than 10 megs, you can upload your zip to any file sharing site of your choice (ie. http://www.4shared.com or http://www.yousendit.com), and email me the download link.
Sign-ups are requested for this so that we know who is working on pages. Just post a note here to say you are planning on participating is enough.
The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on Thursday, September 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 know I am late, but wasn't sure if I could do this challenge this month. I have now purchased "the goods" and will make my QP or two.

EDIT: Oh Oh, when I signed up I thought I had till the end of the month to complete this but on reading I see they are due Sept 25th.

Well I have managed to finish one QP using Template 08 from Andrea Gold's Busy Boys QP set

Here is the link:

10-15-2008, 02:55 AM
Thanks for letting us know holly!

10-20-2008, 03:51 AM
Well ladies, I have run into a major snag. I have all the files but I happened to notice that anyone who gave me a 4shared link directly to a .png file, not a zip file...on my computer they all ended up with the exact same size and I went to open them up and they won't open up in photoshop. So something is not right. Probably the same for the other 2 exchanges that are using the old sharing method, not the new. So I may be having to come back to some of you to get you to zip your files up and upload those for me. Be in touch.

10-20-2008, 04:36 AM
It has been my experience that files need to be zipped to send through 4shared. Too often if you just send a png file something gets messed up. Sorry this is causing more work for you, hope it gets cleared up without too much fuss. Thanks for taking the time to work it all out.

10-20-2008, 05:25 AM
Well, good news for this exchange. Of the 5 folks that sent them to me this way, I was able to go back through the my pm's and emails and download them via firefox cleanly so I'll be getting this album to you shortly :) Hoping to be this lucky with the Birthday and Jeans4U exchanges too.........!
