Post Mothers & Others
You saw it coming didn't you? The Exchange Queen must have an Exchange!

May is one of my favorite months of the year because that's when we celebrate Mother's Day.

This Exchange honors Mother's & maternal grandmothers & aunties.

The rules are simple:

TIMELINE: May 14th through May 31st

KIT TO USE: Elizabeth Collection Part I and/or Part II

PROJECT: One (1) or more 12"x12" Quick Page saved in PNG format.

Create a heritage page using the Elizabeth Collection. Layout should feature three generations of ladies from your Mother's lineage. Some examples are: (1) Your Mother, Grandmother & You; (2) Your Mother, You & Your Daughter(s); (3) Your Mother, Maternal Auntie & You.

Use your creativity & honor the women in your life. Save the heritage page at 300 dpi. Then use that heritage page to create a Quick Page to share. Instructions for creating a QP from a LO follow in the next post.

Send me a PM (private message) & I'll tell you where to send your completed QP.

Post a web version of the heritage page in your gallery & link back to this thread.

PARTICIPATION BONUS - Everyone who participates by submitting at least one QP will receive every QP submitted.

In addition to the QPs created by the participants, you will also receive a beautiful 10 page QP Album created by my Creative Team.

Instructions for creating a QP from a LO

CREATE THE LAYOUT
1. Create a heritage layout (12"x12", 300 dpi).
2. Include your photos or journaling as you normally would for an album page.
3. Save the layered file.


CREATE THE QUICKPAGE

1. Open the heritage layout you created per above.
2. Save a copy of it (Save As...). Use the same filename as before, except add QP to the end. You will now be working on a COPY of your layout so you won't have to be concerned about overwriting it.
3. Be sure your Layer Palette is visible.
4. Delete any journaling layers you may have.
5. Locate your photo layer(s).
6. If there are any layers covering the photo layer (i.e., a ribbon or border that overlaps the photo), turn off visibility for the layer(s) by clicking once on that layer, then click the eye icon to turn off visibility for the layer. Repeat this step for anything that overlaps the photo.
7. Turn off visibility for the photo. You'll do that for ANY photos in your layout.
8. SAVE the layered file before continuing!!! Very important to do that.
9. Now, Merge Visible Layers.
10. Locate the photo layer (if you have more than one photo, you'll do this step for each of them). With visibility still turned off, click once on the photo layer, then press CTRL+Click on the thumbnail in the layer palette to select the layer. You'll see "marching ants" surrounding the area.
Next, click once on the merged layer. Press Delete OR your Backspace key to delete. This will create a transparent opening in the merged layer where your photo used to be.
Repeat the step for any other photos.
11. Turn on visibility for anything that was turned off in step #6 (ribbons, etc.). The elements that once overlapped photos will now overlap the transparent areas.
12. Save a copy of your QP in PNG format (Save As...> Select PNG format).

The resulting PNG format is the one you will e-mail to me for the Exchange.

You may submit up to two (2) QPs if you wish. The more participants we have, the more QP Pages you will have to create a heritage album.

ALL QPs must be submitted to me no later than Monday, June 1st.

Sounds like fun! I'll have to start looking for pics. Only one I can think of right now has four generations in it. Would that work?

It certainly would. You can have one photo with 3 (or more) generations, or 3 separate photos with one individual in each.

I started to create a LO yesterday, but realized I had not copied any of my images from my old EHD to my new EHD. There isn't even one photo on my new EHD!! :cry: I'm going to have to remedy that very soon.
