I saw this template and immediately knew what colors I wanted to use... The papers and elements are from my Winter Joy Freebie Kit. Most of it is already available on my BLOG (http://www.cindyrelly.blogspot.com/)

I found this cute fur branch and couldn't resist doing it like a real tree. I still want to use the other template and do another. I'll be back with it if I have time. Thanks for the cute templates.

Question ~ Is there any method of changing this from a psd file type to png? The software I use does not support psd file types.

Thanks in advance if any one knows how!

Hmm you would need each part saved as a png so you could construct the page with each png layer. Does your software allow layers?? Maybe Kim can save them as png's for you.

YES!! I'm in the process of doing this now... my apologies to those who don't use Photoshop, I forget there are other programs out there :rolleyes: I am saving the templates as individual PNG's & as Tiff files - should be done later today and I will post a new link for you all!! :DD (sorry CM Silly, I'm a day later than anticipated... oh the joys of raising children! lol )

I wouldn't want anyone to be left out of the contest! :)

Thanks Kim for the fun challenge. I did mine twice using the same template. Only difference is I covered the template with boughs. Here they are:

I'm new on the gallery/forum. Taking the challenge to trim a tree - this is my pink extravaganza. I don't have a program that allows layered templates, so this is my approximation of the template.

Oh my gosh are we going to be asked to vote for the trim a tree challenge?? I don't think I can.It was too hard to vote in the Christmas progressive scrap & to do it again would be pure torture for me. I feel so bad for digiscrappers with gorgeous Lo's that don't get voted to win.But then I can hardly vote in the new designer contests either. Ok Ok I know we gotta vote so some talented scrapper wins a lovely prize. The trees are absolutely adorable.One more pretty than the next.Boy this was fun to frequently check in to see all the different trees

Yes, Joba... we are voting again! :DD Poll will be up sometime tomorrow, today is the last day to get your tree's in for the contest!

You should know by now that SAS loves to include the members in the voting... it's just so much fun! lol :m

I was away from the computer for a few days with Christmas and all, but when I did finally have a chance to come look at all of the trees, I was floored! You ladies are outdoing yourselves every month with these templates! I hope you all are enjoying yourselves and learning some new tricks along the way! :DD

I saw this in the gallery and it came out beautiful! Is there another type of format you need for your program? PSD's should be able to be opened by Photoshop & PSP and I also included separate downloads for the individual PNG's & a layered TIFF file... let me know if there is another format I can give you for your program, and I'll work on it for next time! :DD

You know, even in the New Year I'm still a day late for everything! :rolleyes: I wish the in-laws would stop coming by "unexpectedly!" :rolleyes: We ended up with a houseful yesterday... and we didn't even plan it!!! My nice, clean house is now a disaster! Oy! lol

Anyway... poll will be going up soon! The contest is now closed! Thanks to everyone who participated, you all did a fantastic job on your trees!!! :DD

I did post it to the correct gallery - It was right after the beautiful tree done in purple and yellow. I'm not sure what occurred, cuz looking at the Clutter challenge, my post is no longer there either?? Yet my post to the desktop challenge is still there. Thanks for the compliment, I see all the beautiful entries and realize I have a long way to go! I am learning a ton from you ladies though - THX!

Oh dear! Do we have gallery gremlins stealing our layouts?!! :eek:

I'm sooo sorry about that! :o I see your post in the thread here in the forum, but not in the gallery... I do see all of your progressive scrap layouts in your personal gallery... hmmm... what is going on?

If it's any consolation, we will be doing more template challenges like this one, so more chances to win! :DD

I would suggest double checking the gallery after you upload and posting the link with your image in the thread, just so we at least have a cross-reference link to find out what's happening with the layouts! If you need help with anything, just give us a shout... one of us is always around to answer questions and help when needed! :D
