Ready for another brag book exchange...with a twist? If you know Helen, you know that anything she's involved in means that there are major goodies for you! Well she and Andrea have teamed up again to bring you this exchange!


http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/704/helen_jeans4u_bb_exchange_announcement.jpg

This exchange will be using Helen's Jean4U Series Products (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=Jeans4U) (on sale for 40% off).


http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/medium/_helen//he_jeans4u_MED.jpg http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/images/medium/_helen/he_jeans4u_letters_MED.jpg

Anyone using her Jeans4U Page kit for their pages will get the above brag book pages created by Helen. If you also use something from her Letters Add-On, then you will get a goody bag of coordinating items for this series line.

And that's not all..............if you use any templates from Andrea's new Floral Fiction Brag Book Set #8 (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=2751) (on sale for 10% off):

You will get her brand new Floral Fiction Brag Book Set #9 which is exclusive to this exchange and won't be put in the store!!

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.

Guidelines:

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.
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)
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.

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/704/thumbs/nancyrwa_loveydovey_BB_Preview.jpg
Please upload your previews to the Brag Book Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=704).
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_j4u_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 requested for this so that we know who is working on pages.
The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on Tuesday, September 30th. Please be sure to send me the files by that time as well so that I can publish the album download links more quickly.

Sorry I am only able to get one BB page done this time. Family commitments have kept me hopping these past two weeks. We also had to put our beloved dog down last week and I just haven't felt much like scrapping even though I had purchased the goods for this challenge a couple of weeks ago.

Here is my contribution

Thanks Mel = great pages!

I have given my 3 BB pages to Holly - and I will check out who used the Jeans4U letters kit - to determine who gets the extra surprise goody bag from me. It will be one of my new Jeans4U add on kits - 100mg+. I will get it out later this week - after I get some personal stuff at home done today and tomorrow. If it's ok with Holly - I'll handle the distribution of the 'extra' goody bag from me.

Thanks again to everyone who participated - the pages are all gorgeous!

when do they usually post the new challenge? Sorry Ive never tried this one yet~

Just bopping in to say I have NOT forgotten about you ladies.
I've been offline for a week now with a very bad back. I had a ruptured disk and back surgery back in 2000 - so I know when my back hurts me this bad it's time to get horizontal and stay off of my 'dupa'.

I'm better now - and am working on the add on preview = for the kit that I will be giving out as the bonus to the ladies who used Jeans4U letters also in their brag book exchanges. I have 3 birthday parties in the next 3 days (Fri, Sat, and Sun) so I do hope to get this add on done in the next day or two.

HUGS to all and sorry I'm late getting out the bonus - but when the back hurts - you just can't sit. It's a pain in the you know what - to get old.

Be back later this weekend with all the goodies.
HUGS! Helen

I love the bonus'es but I would rather you take longer sending them out because your busy taking care of your health. So dont rush on my account. Just get feeling better! I'll keep you in my prayers. Hugs, Chris

My "back is back" - and here is the extra goody bag I will be sending out links on tonight. It is an addon kit to my Jeans4U collection.

this will be going out to everyone who also used the "jeans4u letters" kit with their pages. thanks to everyone who participated in this brag book exchange!
HUGE HUGS from me!

Really glad to see you *back* with a painless *back* Helen!! :lmao: Love this add-on - Thanks!!! Can't wait to get all the BB QPs and make an album from them. Sure makes things easy to just plop in some pictures, add a little text and maybe an extra or two. Easy peesy and gorgeous at the same time - life is good! :giggle:

Hi all, I was really hoping to get the album to you before I went out of town last week. I'm back from being out of town now and will be getting you the album in the next day!
