MonaLisaK,

Use the TIF file....it supports layers and will open just fine in PSE

LOL This is going to be another kit I'm going to post JUST before the deadline... I will be extracting all night tonight, and then tomorrow is hubby's b-day so I will only have 2 hours or so to work on it late at night... I'm hoping to be putting the preview together by noon on Monday, though. Cross your fingers for me!

Also - the two minis currently in the gallery look great, I'll drop by later and leave you some love. Good luck to everyone still working on their kits as well! I can't wait to see what we come up with.

Good luck everyone!
I've decided not to participate in the Second Chance. I'm not in a good design place right now, and it would show up in my kit. Plus, even with a template, my preview would not be good. I hate that what's in my kit doesn't look all that good because I am bad with previews. Oh well. I guess I can practice making previews until I'm inspired to create something else.
Luckily, I save all my previews in PSD layers so that I can go back to them.

I look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with, though.

I've decided not to participate either. No inspiration, and I've decided to stick to what I'm good at instead: CT-ing

I had the same problem - if you use the TIFF file, you should be all set. At least I was. HTH

After the results were posted, I was really sad and it was hard to think about designing again. I tried to reevaluate what I was designing for. I think sometimes your kit can be really, really good but it just doesn't reasonate with people for whatever reason.

I'm glad I decided to try again. For all of those who are entering the Second Chance contest, good luck and great job for trying again. It takes a lot of courage.

After an internal battle struggle with myself, I decided to go ahead and make a kit for this week. If anyone has any suggestions of improvement that I could utilize in the future, I would love to hear them. Feel free to shoot me a PM (to avoid a public slaughter )

Here's my kit.

Katybug, I think your kit is so cute! I wouldn't put it down. Afterall, every kit and LO we do, is one more under the belt! Practice practice. I don't know about you, but I've learned sooooo much in these past couple of weeks. Mainly about my capabilities and what I want to focus more on! Good luck!

hey i don't know if anybody else noticed but there was something wrong with the preview template..it bugged me soo much that i corrected it...the shadows on the papers were showing from the left..now industry practice as far as i can tell is that shadowing needs to be on the right...every preview i have looked at thus far has different directions on their papers and elements shadows...elements on the right and correct papers on the left....doing qc for quite a while has taught me that shadowing is very important and to keep it consistent or don't use it at all..what do you all think on this matter??...cheers liz

This round I stayed out of the forum to concentrate on my kit. Big mistake. To anyone here who moves forward, I totally recommend reading the first string threads. I missed the part of the challenge that said to make the title special but someone on the thread asked about it. If I had been reading it I would have recovered. Anyway, I felt really strong about my kit this week and now I think I might get booted due to not completing the whole challenge. :0(

I shadow papers on the left but you are absolutely correct that the papers and elements should shadow he same.... I never even thought about that!

I did notice, especially when I started putting my elements on it. I did not change the papers but rather changed my elements because they stated they didnt want the preview changed. I have never shadowed to the left but thought I would stick with what was given.
