Default **Closed** Week 3 Challenge


Big Photos Templates 2 by JanetB Designs

Welcome to Week 3 of the Layout Artist contest! You have created lots of stunning pages in the past 2 weeks, and we're just as excited to see what you do this week! Please read all of the rules carefully, there were a number of people who were ineligible for voting last week for not completing the challenge!

You should be receiving/have received a PM with your coupon to pick up this template set from JanetB Designs. These will be sent 9/16 and 9/17 in the morning to those who have signed up in the sign up thread)

Requirements: Create 2 beautiful layouts using these templates by Janet along with any of the contributions to the Next Designer Contest. You may use any kits created by any contestant in Week 1, 2 or 3! Only kits created for the 2013 NDC contest are allowed!

You can find all NDC kits here: NDC Gallery

* You MAY mix & match kits
* You MAY use the kits created and posted in the 'play-along' area as well (created by our design team)
* You MAY use a different kit/combination for each of the 2 pages
* You MUST use the provided templates in both layouts. If you are unable to open the file types included, please use them as a sketch.
* The template may be altered but MUST be recognizable.
* You MUST credit properly, the templates as well as all NDC contest kits/bits you used.
* Do NOT upload your layouts to the NDC layouts gallery too, just to the LO Contest Week 3 gallery.

Each layout must be uploaded to the Week 3 Gallery and must include proper credits, including a link to the templates in the store. DO NOT link to the contest kits used, they just need to be credited! We are aware of issues with leaving information when you upload your layout, if you are unable to post in the information area of your layout, please immediately leave a comment on your layout in the gallery with this information.

Layouts are due 9/21 by 23:59 Studio time. We have a clock in the forum for you to use. Late layouts will not be counted for this round!

General Rules/Information (AKA: The Fine Print….)

* Each week will require you to complete 2 unique layouts. Please read each weeks instructions carefully and follow all instructions! Questions are welcome! Layouts that do not meet requirements will be excluded from votes.

* This is a non-elimination contest, with weekly winners (all announced at the end of the month). You may compete 1 week or all 4 or anywhere in between!

* There will be a public poll available starting on Sunday - Monday each week (please note, this was incorrect in the week 1 thread). There will also be private voting done by theStudio design team. The scores from each will be combined to determine a winner.

* Polls will be created by username not by layout. Look at each layout by the contestants and choose your favorites when making your decisions. Each contestant will have 2 layouts for you to look at when making your decision.

* If the same contestant wins multiple weeks, the second place contestant will be offered a CT spot instead. We will be adding 4 new scrappers to the store CT!

* Each week a random contestant will win a fabulous prize! Additionally, any contestant participating all 4 weeks will receive a special gift, and 1 lucky participant will win a new EHD. All prize winners will be announced at the end of the month.

* Current Studio Store CT and Staff (QC Team, Design Team, Admin Team) members may play along. We will open a separate gallery (it will be the same one for all 4 weeks) for current CT to post their layouts too. CT playing along will need to sign up each week, but will not be eligible for any of the prizes. This includes Studio Design team members an QC team members.

When I saw Queen Bee's kit last week, I knew just what photos I wanted to us with it. Now I'm glad I didn't get around to doing the LO, 'cause I can do it this week.

A bigger challenge for me will be downloading the kits from the NDC. Is Mediafire giving fits to anyone else? Also having a problem with 4shared...keeps wanting me to verify my account and I can't figure that one out...

I'm so excited to have you use these templates and can't wait to see what you'll do with them!

Just a little hint from me in using the background for a large photo (and I hope that you do) -- sometimes you have a photo that you just love, but it wasn't exactly in focus, or someone blinked (that would be me), or there was something distracting in it. Use it anyway! Blend it into a paper with great texture, and use the smaller photo frames for your crisp, clean photos.

And I saw someone mention that they had never used a template before -- I hope you'll enjoy trying these out. The shapes of flowers, strings and paper mats are placement guides. Clip papers to them, substitute flowers or other great elements for the flower shapes. Have fun!
