The New Year Convoy
The New Year Convoy is a blog/site train for digital scrapbookers.
Each designer makes a scrapbooking kit. Must be free of course. Each designer makes as many or few papers/elements as they feel like. This Convoy is going to be a totally stress free convoy (train). We provide you with the colors and a dead line. No requirements of mega kits, file naming restrictions, etc. Do it your way!
The kits must be full size (no tagger size kits please). Papers should be 3600x3600 pixels at 300DPI. Elements should be 300DPI. The rest is entirely up to you. Just have fun!
The Convoy takes off on Jan. 1st. 2009. If you are interested please send and email to TwistedConvoys@gmail.com stating your interest in participating. Please include your Designer name, and URL to your blog/site.
We are limiting the numbers of participants. So hurry, send me an email to sign up, cause when we reach 30 participants, the doors will be closed.
After I hear from you, you will be invited to the Yahoo group, which you are required to join.
Each designer is responsible of posting their free kit on their blog/site on Jan. 1st and of course the list of other participating designers. (you will be provided the list prior to Jan. 1st)
These are the colors that we ALL must use for our New Year Convoy kit.
Please click on the image to open original size color palette. Then right click to save it to your own computer.
You are welcome to use only 3 of the colors i.e. you can use black, red, and gold, or black, red, and silver.
The Gold and Silver glitter tiles will be given to you after you sign up.
Thank you to Sandra Guicharnaud-Rowe at S.G.Rowe Designs for making these glitter tiles for us :)
The deadline is December 15th 2008.
If you are not aware of how a blog train (convoy) works here is a quick explanation.
A bunch of people get together and make items that match. Then at a specific date or time all the participants post their parts/items to their blog or website. They also include a list of URL's to other participating websites/blogs (a blog roll). The guests can then visit a lot of different sites and collect tons of matching items/kits. Your visitors will love it, and it will of course bring a lot of extra traffic to your site.
We will do our best to advertise the New Year Convoy, but you are of course allowed/encouraged to advertise it as well.
I hope a lot of you will join the New Year Convoy and I look forward to hearing from you :)
