"The preview must be 600X600px, 72dpi, and a jpg file."

I did this but the preview is really blurry. Where did I go wrong?
Thank you.

are you using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements? If so, you can use the "Save For Web" feature and it won't blur your preview Let me know if you need instructions

I hope it's OK that I edited the description for my kit after I found out this morning that the link was empty. My bad. It's hard to check the links when 4Shared automatically lets you DL your own files. :-(

Yeah!!! I think that did the trick. Thank you for that. Now hopefully I'll remember that for other things.

I've been "eyeballing" the colors and I realize that a couple of them are not dead on. Is that okay? Or do they need to be exact?
Thanks

Thank you Danielle! I used dropbox so downloading shouldn't be a problem for anyone, at least I hope not!

Hello everyone! I just wrote a longer intro in the other section, but thought I'd wave hello in here as well. I decided after a long time of thinking about trying design to just bite the bullet and do it...so here I am. This was fun to make and it really stretched my brain. I broke out the never-used wacom and realized it was a bad idea to learn something in the midst of a challenge. I did make a few things on the tablet that helped in the making of the kit but mostly stuck to Illustrator/ps.

See ya around!

As long as you used the color palette, you should be okay! Colors tend to shift a little lighter/darker depending on the blend modes you use, and that is perfectly okay

Sweet! Thank you, Kim. Please, someone, let me know if it needs to be fixed. Thank you.

Awesome! Looks like everything is working right and I have the right number of everything. So here is WEEK 1 "Moonlit Romance" mini kit for your scrapping pleasure.

Thanks for having this competition. Creating kits is really fun. Helps to have a deadline

Thanks Toiny!!! I figured I had gone rather overboard with my definition. Hopefully I've done everything correctly for my mini (just uploaded the preview). If not, there's always next year.

HTH's!

Hi everyone! I'm joining in this time - I just got back from Labor-day vacation so I'm just getting started! But I love the palette and I can't wait to create! I won't have very long to get this done, so I gotta get cracking!
