View Full Version : Scrappin' Challenge 8

Alright everyone, I am so sorry that I am late posting this, but technically, Monday isn't over with yet...LOL...Soooooooo...
You guys got your thinking caps on? This challenge is a project I am working on and I need your help....I am doing a album for a friend of mine...Her sister's anniversary....the album consists of family photo's....this is NOT all Wedding`ish...lol...
I need an album cover and/or templates, and thought you all might be able to help me...

Here is your challenge...
1. Using ONLY MY freebies or store bought kits, I would like you to make a template or album cover. (or more...lol)
2. For the Templates..I am looking for pages that will look good with family photo's or little boy photo's...I want your page to be exported and uploaded here to share with everyone...(MAybe someone else can use them too...<wink> Before Exporting your page, be sure that your photo area is grey with the double click to add photo will show...You can do this in two different ways...1.) After adding your own photo, right click on it and click clear image, or 2.) When exporting your template, make sure the remove photo box is selected....
3.) For an Album Cover...The cover I want to use will NOT include any photo....All I want is a pretty cover (not real wedding~ish...since this is not a formal album` more family) that says Happy Anniversary somewhere on it...You can upload it here as an .smt file incase someone else would want it, but this is optional...
4.) Please upload your layout/allbum cover HERE (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/g2809-design-team-challenges.html), and then post a preview of it here for all to see, along with your .smt file to share with others...

After the week is over, we ALL will have a great album....and I might even offer some prize to everyone that participates....;)
Remember, any questions, please ask.....thanks...

01-11-2010, 02:45 PM
What size is your album?

01-11-2010, 03:33 PM
LOL...So someone is paying attention...<wink>

Seriously, I forgot to add the size requirements, didn't I?
I am making it 8x8 ...Hope this helps...

01-12-2010, 02:26 AM
these are thumbnails of 3 different album covers i made but they are to big to attatch as full size jpg's or as smt2 files so have to try and figure out how to share them with you all

01-12-2010, 11:35 AM

Here is a scrapbook cover I did.

The 2 quick pages are too big to post here so I will upload them somewhere and get back with the links to download.

Is this what you were wanting or pages with only 1 or 2 pictures? I usually scrap with multiple pictures so that's what I made.

01-12-2010, 08:07 PM
Wendy and Mary, you have done some beautiful pages so far....Love 'em....And I knew I would run into the problem of having to pick just ONE album cover...LOL...that will be my challenge...<wink> Keep 'em coming...I know this is a little different of a challenge, but I hope to see more participants...thanks again you two...((HUGS))

01-12-2010, 09:21 PM
OK here are the links for the two pages:


I'm new to 4shared so hopefully I did it correctly.

01-12-2010, 10:24 PM
1st page, trying to do these in between working.... will have to sack myself... lol. I trolled through my files here, crikey, I cannot believe how much of Michelles embellies and papers I have got... You are a legend Michelle....

This album cover does not say Happy Anniversary, but it does use your word "Love" from one of your challenges. Thank you for all your fantastic freebies!

Hello all,

Here's my album cover. I can't put it in the gallery because of some glitch but wanted to post it here using my photobucket. Hope that's not like a violation or anything! ;)


01-14-2010, 01:48 AM
Okay Michelle,

When I make that into a template (I know how to do that) how do you attach it in here? : ) Thanks darling!

01-14-2010, 04:51 AM
Here is an album page.

01-14-2010, 09:54 AM
This is probably a little to fancy Michelle but maybe some one can use the template so I am posting it also. I used your Just Peachy kit the colors are so vivid! I had to put it on 4share the file was too big.

SO here is the album cover I made

Dillie, I couldn't get this link to work....Said it was an invalid link.....:confused: I love the page....

I think I have downloaded everyone's pages...They are ALL great!!!!! I love the selections and different styles to the layouts....Thanks...and I noticed others downloaded them too, which is SUPER...lol...Keep "em coming...I have to finish this up by Monday...

Dina, to upload your template (.smt file) You need to make sure that when you post here, that you use the Go Advanced Icon for your posting....Underneath the box you are writing in, you will see another icon that says Manage Attachments...Click on that and a box will appear..Click on Add Files...Now, you need to browse through your computer files to find it...Go to My Documents, then Scrapbookmax, then Templates, and open the template you want to upload....You should see it in the bottom area of the attachment box...Then Click on Insert Attachment...and thats it...Submit Relpy and the download should show...Just make sure it is 5mb or less...

01-14-2010, 06:12 PM
" Dillie, I couldn't get this link to work....Said it was an invalid link.....:confused: I love the page...."

Thanks Michelle for letting me know--I was in a hurry that day --was already late for work. I know I shouldn't scrap before work, because I never know when to quit. Haste makes Waste as my mother always says. :D
Try this one...;)


Thanks again...

01-15-2010, 10:09 AM
Thank you sweetie...

01-15-2010, 12:22 PM

Here is my cover, which I have also uploaded as a template. I think the fonts used on the template are all available free on the internet.

Blessings - FS xx

OOps! This is so small - should I have posted it differently? I just put it in as an attachment, but I'm wondering if I did the wrong thing! :confused:

01-15-2010, 02:38 PM

01-17-2010, 05:29 PM
I should have done this in the above post...what was I thinking?

Here we go hope it works and hope someone can use this page! ;)


01-18-2010, 04:25 AM
I tried to save a template to post to this site. I exported it as a template then checked the boxes to remove the picture and to optimize, however, when it shows me the little thumbnail of it, the pictures are still there and when I import it into Scrapbookmax, the pictures show then too - this is the first time I've tried to make a template. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you!

01-18-2010, 08:42 AM
It will show on your computer, but should be gone in the Template you share. As long as you check "remove Photo"

01-18-2010, 05:32 PM
Pixy, you can also right click on the photo's and click on Clear Image....This works too! I hope to see your page...

Everyone else has done a wonderful jobI have had some computer issues and had to redo my laptop...I am hoping by tomorrow, things will be finished...I have a gift for you all that participated as well, but I have to wait to give it to you until my comp is up and running again....I am so glad I have a computer geek for a bf...lol

01-18-2010, 06:10 PM
I guess I will have to do this one step at a time. I did click on the picture and used "clear picture" which worked, but now I don't know how to upload the template to this post? Thank you.

01-18-2010, 09:30 PM
When you go to your Documents, SBM 2, templates, click one time to Check size, if the Template is 5mb or under you can attach in thread, But If it is Larger, you will have to use something like 4shared, to upload, then place a link in the post.
To attach, I have to "Reply to thread" click on insert attachment, find your file, then upload, ok, hit post.......(Doing this from memory, if I missed something Please Someone catch it and help her)

Hope this Helps!!!!

01-20-2010, 03:07 AM
This is not the boy page, it is 5.15mb, but this anniversary page is less. I thought you might like this anniversary page for your scrapbook - it is mostly using your Icy Blue Christmas. Hope this works?

01-20-2010, 03:09 AM
The above attachment did not show the picture - do I upload the picture and the attachment both? I will try to attach the thumbnail of it. Pixygirl

01-20-2010, 03:51 AM
I hope this link works - first time using 4 shared?
This is the baby boy template using your (Crafty Scraps) baby boy download.
Hope this works for your scrapbook!

01-20-2010, 11:51 AM
Ok everyone...I finally got the album finished using most of these layouts and my own...I can't thank you enough for helping me...So very sweet of you all!!!!!
Pixy, I think you have figured out how to do all this..You are now a PRO...<wink> Once you get used to it, it isn't that complicated...Just sounds like it coming from anyone trying to explain it...I think once you do it on your own, it becomes a lot easier...lol...I appreciate your patience...
I hope everyone else enjoyed all these goodies...Great thing about templates is you can use them over and over again...
And for helping me out in my time of need...lol...I made you all something special...I will be emailing everyone that participated this little MINI (preview below)...Would work great with Valentine's Day, since it's right around the corner....hehe...Hope you all enjoy it...and again...A HUGE THANK YOU! If you haven't received the email, please let me know...:D

01-23-2010, 07:45 AM
Thank you for the xoxo mini kit - it is gorgeous! My oldest is a February baby and this would be a great kit to use.
