I hope you are ready for another brag book exchange with a chance to win a $20 coupon to my store! I've created this kit especially for this exchange and I hope it will bring a nice change of pace for the exchange! Here's a look at the kit:

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/704/andreagold_mratt_thumb_prev.jpg
It's on sale 35% off for the exchange! You can find it here. (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=3487)

With this exchange, you will receive all of the quick pages submitted by participants PLUS these created by me:

ADDITIONALLY, if you also use my new "Seeing Stars Brag Book Template Set #04" (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=3488) to create at least one of your layouts along with my kit, you will receive my template grab bag #12 for boys ($18 value, will not be available for sale as a grab bag)! Here's a look at the new template set:

These are also on sale 35% off for the exchange! You can find them here. (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_dnld_info&products_id=3488)

This bonus grab bag for using the templates will not be available for sale as a grab bag:

Guidelines: UPLOADING GUIDELINES HAVE CHANGED SO PLEASE READ

* Each participant will submit at least 1, 4X6 brag book page but not more than 3 using this kit only (but you may include any commercial use supplies as well). Please put all of your pages on 1 preview page to upload to the gallery to prevent any non-participants from using these pages.
* Sign-ups are requested for this so that we know who is working on pages. Post here to say you are planning on participating.
* Layouts should be created and saved at 6" x 4" and 300ppi starting with a transparent background. Your photo areas should be transparent when you are done.
* If you are familiar with creating a quick page in a transparent .png file, please submit it in that format. If you are using Photoshop, you can download a Photoshop style here (http://www.4shared.com/file/80878483/4f019c3c/andrea_qp_photo.html) for applying to your photo shapes to easily make them transparent without a lot of messy cutting.
* If you are not familiar with the process of creating a quick page, 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). Please share this file and then post in this thread that you need help poking the holes for the pictures and I will help do those for you.
* Please name your files as follows to help me track these easier. YourForumName_KitName_bb1.png so as an example, mine would be goldscraps_mrattitude_bb1.png.
* Post your preview of your bb pages all on one layout at 600x600 and upload it to the Brag Book Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=704) for everyone to see!
* I will need the .png or .jpg file at the full 6x4 size for each brag book page you submit. Please do not upload the preview to the QP folder below...just the png quick page files.

****NEW***: In an effort to get you the albums much quicker after the exchange is over, we're implementing a new way for us to share the files.
* Please upload JUST THE FULL PNG FILES to Mr. Attitude BB Exchange Folder (http://www.4shared.com/dir/11910557/151cc0ce/Mr_Attitude_Exchange.html)
* Toward the bottom of the screen you will see an "Upload Files" small window. Click the browse button inside there and navigate to your PNG files and choose that to upload.
* Your computer will then upload the file so it may take a minute or two. After the upload is completed, you will not see anything in this folder or even see anything to tell you it was successful but I'll let you know if there's a problem.
* Please post here that you uploaded so I can make sure it came through OK.
* Once the exchange is over, I will figure out who hasn't uploaded or has a problem with their files and when all is good will make it so that you can see all the files that everyone uploads and then you can download them!
* The submission deadline for this round is end of the day on Saturday, January 31.
* Deadline for uploading your files to the exchange folder is Monday, February 2. I will be making the quick pages available for download on Tuesday, February 3.

Last but not least, one random participant of this exchange who uses the kit and the template set will win a $20 gift coupon to my store! At the end of the exchange, I will randomly pick one winner to receive the coupon!

I hope you enjoy this exchange. If you have any questions, be sure to PM me (goldscraps) or write me an email agold76@gmail.com. :)

I saw this new kit last night and I told myself that I got to have it. With 2 uber active boys, it's a must!

If I understand this correctly, I can use the templates to create my bragbook page???

Andrea

Yes, if you use a template from the set a long with the kit to make at least one of your layouts, you will get the extra bonus grab bag and the chance to win the $20 gift coupon. I've changed the post above to clarify that better. :)

Well I did make the BB pages and uploaded them to the folder like you said, BUT I didn't name them correctly. Go figure between the 2 year old spending the night and my Swiss Cheese brain, I goofed as usual. You will know them since they have by Lois and the Challenge name. Sorry I really should read directions better. Hey but I did get them donw, right?

I edited my original post to include a list of participants whose files have been uploaded so you will know if I got your file. :) It's at the very bottom of the post.

had to read the original thread a few times, so I think I got it right.

When I made my preview page here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=47133) I used the jpg files with the pics. However I sent in the PNGs with the photos cut out. Was I supposed to make a preview page with the PNGs???

Forgive me, it's the first time I do a brag book exchange, so I'm not up to par with all the required stuff :)

No, no preview required other than the one you did. The only preview you need is one to put in the gallery so everyone can see and if you use your photos in it, that's perfect. We just want to make sure that someone can't go to the gallery and download the previews and make quick pages out of them. I did get your two pages and they're perfect! :)

I am going to attempt this too! I may need some help when it comes to making previews, though.

Andrea

What you can do for the preview that's easy is write preview across the front of it like this:

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/704/medium/lanesmom_Snowdays_BB_copy.jpg

Let me know if you need help figuring it out. You just take your brag book pages and put them together on one page. Then, write preview across them. The last thing to do is resize the entire thing to 600x600 pixels. You can ask questions right here if you need help.

[CENTER* Layouts should be created and saved at 6" x 4" and 300ppi starting with a transparent background. Your photo areas should be transparent when you are done.


Does the transparent background thing count if you are using the Seeing Stars template??

Sorry - I'm new to making a QP with a template to start.

Andrea
01-23-2009, 07:34 AM
Yes, you would finish your layout as you normally would. Then, cut out the photo area. The photo areas need to be transparent so others can put their photos behind. If you're stuggling with this, you can finish the layout and upload the .psd file instead of the .png file and I'll cut the photos out for you. I have a layer style for Photoshop that will do that really fast. Or, if you know how to add layer styles to your program (for Photoshop/Photoshop Elements), you can use it. You can download it here:

http://www.4shared.com/file/80878483/4f019c3c/andrea_qp_photo.html

There is a tutorial about how to manually cut the photos out here:

My two brag book pages (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=47437&ppuser=5920) I used one of the templates for one and substituted the pow's for stars. I love this kit and used it in the scraplift challenge as well, Scraplift posting (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=47485&ppuser=5920):wink:

Okay, I got one page done. I did it using the template #6 of the seeing stars. I went ahead and uploaded it to the 4-shared folder before I forgot and moved on to something else. I will try to get a couple more done by tomorrow and then post the preview too.

Thanks!!!

I've sent out the link for the quick pages. I just wanted to thank you all so much for participating! We have a great collection of pages! I will be looking over the layouts tomorrow evening and sending out the bonus grab bag also. :)

Andrea

Thanks for participating everyone! I finally got the grab bag sent out and also I realized that I didn't include my quick pages in the first download I sent out. So, I sent out an additional download for you. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks again!
