Default LOA 2011 - FINALS

This week's voting was so very difficult! Thank you to each participant, you did amazing work with Min’s kit!

We had a break at the top 8 with a 3-way tie for the next spot, so we broke the list at 11 going to the Final Round. Congratulations, if you find your name below, you are in the Finals!

You know this, but here are the general rules and instructions:
THREAD before you begin your assignment.


YOUR ASSIGNMENT

As a member of theStudio’s Creative Team, you are required to create 2 layouts per kit chosen from a list every 2 weeks, at least one kit per list. Layouts are to be posted in theStudio Gallery, DST, and at least 2 other digital scrapbooking site galleries. Working with the monthly mega collabs is optional, but who wouldn’t want to??

Here's what you'll be working with, our brand new collab, to be released on October 1, Farmer's Market !



Be sure to read this thoroughly. The Final Round is a little different.
We are matching the site requirements per kit, without the posting at other galleries.

In this round, you must:

1. Create TWO - 12X12 LAYOUTS using as much of the collab, Farmer's Market, as you can to promote it beautifully, while still keeping your page, including shadows and layers, balanced and eye-catching. You can do two-pager style layouts, or make 2 non-related pages. It’s important to show the possibilities and versatility of the collab kit. It contains 79 papers and 140 elements!

2. Shadows should be consistent, all in the same direction and relative to the distance off the page that particular element would be if real.

3. Your layout should be resized to 600 x 600 pixels, 72 dpi, and no more than 120K before uploading to the gallery. Once you have uploaded your “official” entry for the week, you are not to edit it in any way once it's been placed in the gallery.

4. You must post a store link to the kit in your description, and you must credit theStudio Team, and provide the name of any fonts you use. (The collab is actually hidden, you will need to use the link I provided to you in the description)

5. You are to use the papers and elements as they are without blending. Cropping into shapes is fine. Mention any changes you made besides adding shadows in the description area when you post your page. Please use only the tools that come with your software.

6. Post your layouts in the LOA 2011: Round 5 gallery, and also post to the Monthly Mega gallery, " October 2011: Farmers Market "

7. Post the Round 5 gallery url links from the address bar back here in this thread. Also post the Monthly Mega gallery url link, so that we know you have posted in both places, and can go leave you some love.

IMPORTANT NOTES --

A. We had some questions about a couple of layouts being extremely similar, with the possibility of one having scraplifted the other. Please understand that using templates, sketches and scraplifting is not permitted for this contest.

B. Please carefully review each item in the list of instructions to be sure that you have followed each one. Your beautiful page will have to be disqualified if the instructions are not followed. Be sure you check your descriptions, links, and posting in this thread.

If you have a legitimate problem getting your layout up on time, e.g. computer issue or internet connection problem, or a Studio upload based problem, let us know and we may make an exception, otherwise all pages must be uploaded by the deadline.

Christine and I have loved having you join us for this competition. We hope that you have had a lot of fun, and maybe learned some things along the way. And now, we’re excited to see who will join our Creative Team!

Good luck!



POST DEADLINE : MIDNIGHT EST, SUNDAY, October 2

POLL FOR VOTING : will go up in a separate thread MONDAY, October 3. Voting for this Final Round will only be open to Studio designers and admin.

POLLING CLOSES : Midnight EST on October 4

Congratulations to everyone! It was definitely tough to narrow down the last round to just 5. There were so many creative ways the kit was used. I've got a whole list of things I want to try and figure out how to do just from looking at all the layouts.

Now, this week........
Can't wait to see all the goodies in this kit - looks amazing.
At first I thought "oh no, 2 pages", but after looking at the preview, I realized I'd need at least 2 pages to be able to use all the things that I like!

Best of luck to everyone in this final round and big thanks to Toiny, Christine, Janet and The Studio for this amazing contest.
