Final part of Blue Latte

Well, this is it....last of Blue Latte. Diana is going to help me out with the Quickpage Exchange and hopefully I will post all about it tomorrow. She is out of town right now for the funeral services for her stepfather so please be patient. I am so excited about this and cannot wait to see what you all come up with for pages! Please, please, please...do not be intimidated or afraid to submit. Everybody that digi scraps was once a beginner!

Easter was wonderful. My "wayward" son came home. For his big night on the town, well, let's just say that I had wilder times when I was younger! But everyone was safe and they had a good time and that is all that counts. My daughter had a check up on her leg today and she will be in the air cast for another month which does not make her very happy. She did a lot of damage to the soft tissue and that takes so much longer to heal than bone.

My kids gave me a combination Easter and Birthday present yesterday! A 500 gig external hard drive! Seems they were a little tired of hearing me complain about having to search through CDs to find my scrapping stuff! And now that they have seen some of the pages that I have done for albums for them, they want them finished! So, I think I have all the HD space I need, now I just need more memory! The never ending saga of an overworked computer!!

Now that you have the whole kit, start getting those creative juices going! Here are some guidelines for you:

  • Requirements:
    - Please send me an email saying that you are going to participate ( jand97sc@yahoo.com put Quickpage exchange in the subject line)
    - 8x8 Pages (2400pixels by 2400 pixels)
    - 300 ppi (118.110 ppc)
    - PNG format
    - You may use other elements but please be very careful with the designer’s TOU. Make sure that it can be shared and if in doubt, do not use! If it can be used please include a page (.txt file) in your file giving credit and link to their site if possible.
    - Generic pages only, make sure anyone can use. No personalization, dates, etc.
    - When naming your file please do it like this: yourname_bluelatte_quickpage1 (1,2,3 if you send additional pages)
    - You will need to send the quickpage in png format, a jpg for use as a preview and the .txt file if applicable
    - You can send as a RAR or Zip if you prefer.
    - You must submit at least one page but you can send as many as you like.


    To do a quickpage
    - Open a new file 8x8 300 ppi and create just as if you were doing a page for yourself. Choose your background, add your elements, your drops shadows, etc.
    - Some quickpages are designed so that you can place your photo on top. They are usually a little less “decorated” letting the individual decide how they want to place and accent their pic
    - If you choose to use a “frame” or cutout for the photo, after you are happy with your LO and before you merge your layers, select the area where your pic would be and delete that area so that others can just slip the pics behind. Most ot the time, I select the area and then expand the selection by a few pixels before removing it so that I am sure nothing will show that is not supposed to. Removing this area should be the last step you do before merging since you cannot move anything around after deleting without having to hit undo! Merge your layers as merge visible and save as PNG. This will insure that the cutout area will be transparent.
    - If you have any questions or if you want me to check your page before you finish, let me know. There are no stupid questions and I certainly do not claim to know all the answers but I will help if I can!
  • One other thing, and this is optional, I used a brown for drop shadowing on this set and on most other kits that I use since it seems less harsh than black. The color I use is #57341b. So, if you are ever trying to match my shadows or if you just want a softer shadow on your LO's try this color.

    Most importantly, have fun, experiment and enjoy!

TY sooooo Much hun for ALL the lovely kit, I am just catching up with things now and downloading what I missed out on, I had to chuckle just as I had a try over the weekend at creating a QP and when I saw the preview to the ones you gave to us mine is nearly an identical copy of one of them!!! Great minds think alike as the saying goes :))
Can't wait to see all the kit together..
Regards - ljd (Linda)

I just gave myself a 320 gb hard drive for my birthday and it is filling up fast with all of the beautiful freebies that I have collected. I will be ready for a teribyte by Christmas.

Oh Jan I'm so happy for you with you new HD!!!!! : D Happy Birthday too - I need to go back and reread to find out what date it is - guess I missed that part. Thank you for this last part of Blue Latte - I love this kit. Hopefully if I can clear out some of my HD I'll get to participate in the QP exchange. lol

grambie said...

Thanks for this beautiful kit. Now that I have everything, I can't scrap. My hd is gone & Sony has to give me a date to replace it. I can go online for short periods of time, but if I open any software it crashes. So I do so love this kit & will do a layout with us once I am back up & running. I will watch the participant as I moan that I cannot join. Love the entire, fabulous, & overwhelmingly awesome kit. Thanks!!
