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.

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 6" x 4" 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). Please share this file and then post in this thread that you need help poking the holes for the pictures and I will do so.
Please name your files as follows to help me track these easier. YourForumName_KitName_QP.png so as an example, mine would be HollyS_tb_qp.png.
I will need the preview .jpg at 600x400, and either the .png or .jpg file at the full 6x4 size for each quickpage you submit.
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!
NEW***: In an effort to get you the albums much quicker after the exchange is over, I'm implementing a new way for us to share the files.
- please zip up your files all together so you are only uploading one file. My preference would be not to zip up a folder holding your files but only the files itself. That way when folks unzip, they won't get all these subfolders created.
- click http://www.4shared.com/dir/2403186/22de9358/sharing.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 zip file 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 even to tell you it was successful unfortunately but never fear, I will let you know if something went awry.
- 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!
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 Sunday, May 31st.
The deadline to upload your zip is Tuesday, June 2nd.

Here's my submission decided to go for it at the last minute. The files have been uploaded. http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/704/KarenMinFL_tp_preview.jpg They are HERE (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=57889) in the gallery.

I used Holly Ann's Tender Blossoms and Tender Blossoms Add=On.
I used two of Andrea Gold's Brag Book Templates from Floral Fiction Brag Book Set #11.
I used one of Dani Alencar's Brag Book templates from Fast Scrap Brag Books Volume 2. I thought I put Volume 1 in the cart and that looks like what I purchased but it unzipped and had Volume 2 in and I was out of time to try to figure out what happen so let me know how best to fix that.

I had a lot of fun sorry about the last minute entry.

06-03-2009, 05:21 PM
Hi ladies, thanks for all your creations!

I have all but one page but have everything else ready for you to download in 4shared and will send a link via PM soon!

Coupons for my alpha will be pm'd in just a few minutes and I believe Andrea has already distributed her bonus. Dani and Julie will be doing so very soon if they haven't already!
