I'm scared to leave anything but super positive feedback. Maybe some very clear guidelines need to be added to the opening forum message? I didn't know to add GDCD and will do that from now on I definitely want my fellow members to feel free to rip up a page I upload for review if they want
I need help with this layout: I don't feel it was successful at all:
Black Friday- 2010 By Hernandm
I think the photo is too dark and I just could NOT photograph the actual piece well due to how shinny half the elements are. Then the title was a MESS_ I changed it like 5 times to make it more visible and I'm STILL not happy with it. I like the concept itself- but I've been told just change that photo twice.

I did some changing to the first post. I also cut down on the number of spots in the group. I think 25 people was too many and when we did have that many it was very hard to keep up. I am now keeping it to 15 people.

As for critiquing others work...PLEASE use GDCG: before your comment! Also if you do not want critique on a certain piece of work please put, for sharing/love only when you post it in this thread. If it isn't there then I will assume that you want a critique if I have one to give. I for one always want useful and helpful critiques of my work.

Anyone else have any other questions?

Thanks Cassie, maybe we can generate some new members and become a bit more active again.

No need to feel awkward in leaving critque. Just preface it with GDCG: and all is good. I know I always appreciate another eye and kind helpful comments.

My style is mostly clean and simple or classic without much frill or shabby sheik-ness. I seldom use masking, inking, misting or lots of bling. Its just the way I scrap but others love to really bling it up and use lots of misting or inking and that's okay too! I can and do use other styles but my first instinct is clean and simple to a classical approach. My point is to look at each other's work while knowing their style and looking through their eyes. I know Cassie uses misting a lot, that is part of who she is as a scrapper so I keep it mind while I make comments and don't try to impose my style on her work. I don't know if I succeed or not but I do try to remember each of us is different and to look at each page for its own merit. Anyway we are free to use or not use other's ideas so its all good!

Having fun and helping each other is my goal and I believe its Cassie's too.

Great way to put it Denise! We definitely want to keep eachother's styles in mind, but still offer helpful tips IF we have them and lots of support and praise.

I'm not looking to change these LOs but will gladly accept critque. I used old photos and old cardstock squares and pps on the twins page, just using up some old supplies. Not real happy with it because its more colorful than I am comfortable with but its what I came up with. What would you have done to the page other than the 8 1/2 X 11 sheet?

so how does this group work? just drop off LOs for love and leave some in return? or do you all like to chat too? in hindsight i probably should have asked that before now...

I really like the twins page! I like the rainbow strips. GDCD: Maybe the green background is too neutral for the color pattern established by the bars and photo matt. Perhaps a white paper would have popped the bars out more? Other than that the pages look ready to enter into your album. Love the photos in all the pagers and the papers you chose for the Christmas page.
