View Full Version : Once Upon a Time Collab Exchange

07-18-2009, 09:58 AM
Hello all! Have you seen the gorgeous new Once Upon A Time (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=130&zenid=1fc3a96fd2f0fc864ad9d2208a59925e) collab? You can buy one piece or all! Remember, if you buy ALL the parts you'll get them for 25% off....


Here is your chance to get coordinating quick pages!
In this exchange you may use any mini kit from the collab or a little of everything.

I have made a Quick Page with my part as a bonus, but remember you'll get ALL the pages made



* 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).
* 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 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). 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_QP.png so as an example, mine would be scrappintwins_onceuponatime_qp.png.
* Save a preview of your quick page at 600x600 and upload it to the Quick Page Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=570)for all the oooohs and ahhhs!
* I will need the .png or .jpg file at the full 12x12 size for each quickpage you submit. Please do not upload the preview to the QP folder below.
* ***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 FILE to Once Upon A Time (http://www.4shared.com/dir/17841558/5d73d3d5/OnceUponaATime.html) Folder
- 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 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 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, August 1st* The deadline to upload your zip is Monday, August 3rd.

Please remember to
*Sign up by replying in this thread
*Post again here once you've uploaded to the 4shared folder so I can make sure they're ready to go for everyone!

How wonderful!
I can hardly wait to get started on mine
This would make a wonderful wedding album, quick and easy

07-19-2009, 01:06 AM
OMG OMG OMG - this is a fabulous quick way for an entire wedding album of MEGA proportions for sure - Now if I could just find the right person to marry. LOL :twitcy:
but alas to date - well :no: not I. :head_hurts_kr:

Maybe I :blahblah: :blahblah: :blahblah: to much. :3:

Oh well - i think I will play along anyway - I can always make up a fabulous album for a friend or family member or maybe even use them for my daugthers naming/christening album. The possabilities are endless when you think about it.
I'll be back with something a little later. Hugs

I plan on participating in this exchange. Carena, that's a great idea about using the kit(s) for christening layouts. Also, Quinceañera, First Communion, etc. I might even try for a heritage layout.

07-19-2009, 06:35 PM
I would like to try this

07-20-2009, 04:31 AM
I'm in too, I just love this kit. I am in the middle of making a wedding album myself to give to my FIL for X-mas so this is perfect!!

07-20-2009, 06:00 AM
DH and I have been married for 10 years and I still don't have an album done lol....shame on me! So I'm going to use every page I'm sure!

07-20-2009, 07:21 AM
Sounds great! I'll play!

07-20-2009, 09:03 AM
DH and I have been married for 10 years and I still don't have an album done lol....shame on me! So I'm going to use every page I'm sure!

Christy me neither!
I made five paper scrapped albums for the mothers and grandmothers and my Matron of Honor -- and at least three 5x5 albums for the aunts
I never finished my own!
I am thinking this is the perfect time, and I can use my paper albums (which I photographed) as a guide

maybe I will be done by my 7th anniversary in October!
(haven't come close to my dd's baby album either and she will be four next week!)

Oh, I can see lots of uses for this collab kit, other than weddings. Count me in on the exhange.

07-22-2009, 05:16 PM
I did a wedding album when I got married, but I look back at it now and wonder how I ever thought that was scrapbooking! :laugh:

DH and I have been married for 10 years and I still don't have an album done lol....shame on me! So I'm going to use every page I'm sure!

07-27-2009, 10:00 PM
I've uploaded two. The previews are here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=61670) and here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=61671).

07-28-2009, 03:29 PM
I have posted a preview of my QP here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=61704&ppuser=14768). I made this from an actual page that is a bit more elaborate and uses some other elements that is posted here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=61703&ppuser=14768).
I did upload the QP.

07-29-2009, 07:12 AM
Beautiful pages so far!!! Keep 'em coming!

07-29-2009, 09:28 AM

QP Exchange Gallery


07-31-2009, 07:34 AM
Here is my quick page for this exchange. I will upload it later tonight.


07-31-2009, 02:11 PM
I will try and get at least a page done by tomorrow! But I have to go to bed now! It is after midnight here.

07-31-2009, 03:19 PM
Got mine done, finally! (Well, I had one done a while ago, but decided to do a different one, LOL)

Here is my first QP: QP1 (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=61925&cat=500&ppuser=12444).
I will try and do another one, but I must play with my DD now!

08-01-2009, 05:57 AM
I have uploaded my QP. Please tell me if there is a problem.

08-01-2009, 07:27 AM

Great pages everyone - Well done

08-05-2009, 05:59 PM
Has the link to download them been sent out yet?

09-26-2009, 07:52 PM
I just realized that I never got any links to d/l the qp's for this exchange.

09-27-2009, 12:25 AM
I just realized that I never got any links to d/l the qp's for this exchange.

Jayne, I see your post, but no image linked to it, and your QP wasn't included in the ones sent out. Christy will see this link probably and fix you up.

09-27-2009, 05:06 AM
I never got any of the links for this exchange

09-27-2009, 06:31 AM
Jayne, I see your post, but no image linked to it, and your QP wasn't included in the ones sent out. Christy will see this link probably and fix you up.

If I remember right, they moved the layout to another gallery because I had it posted incorrectly. Here is the layout

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/data/570/thumbs/collabexchange1.jpg (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=61339&ppuser=16077)

BUT, if it wasn't included in the layouts that you received, I wonder if it didn't get uploaded to the 4shared site properly? I never heard from anyone that there was a problem or it was missing, but if it wasn't part of the set, I am not going to worry about it now. That's too much trouble to go back and fix at this point!

Thanks for the info!
