Pixelscrapper Blog Train May 2018 Flower Power

Pixelscrapper Blog Train May 2018 “Flower Power”

Pixelscrapper Blog Train May 2018 Flower Power

This month’s theme for the PixelScrapper blog train is “Flower Power”. I made these “enamel pins” (also called “charms”) that you can use to embellish your digiscrap layouts. The outlines have a raised shiny metal rim style and the painted parts have an inner shadow and glow that make them look like colored enamel that has been poured in between the raised metal edges. There are lots of ways you can use these. Use them to pin down tags or word strips, or combine with other elements to make clusters. Add a chain to suspend one or more from a frame or other embellishment.

TOU – Commercial Use OK:
OK for small commercial use (this means a small business with a single owner, or an individual crafter). It is not necessary to credit me. No additional license* is required (see below if you are not single owner business or individual crafter).

You may use my designs for, scrapbooking, printables, invitations, banners, websites, logos, blogs, card making, planner packs and stickers, etc. DO NOT sell my designs “as is”. You must add your own work to create something new.

You can print as many copies as you wish, and sell the prints. You may create an unlimited number of physical products to sell using these files, such as t-shirts, mugs, totes and more, but you may NOT upload my designs to print on demand sites, platforms, apps or kiosks.

DO NOT sell or share my designs in any format. You cannot simply convert them to a new file format and sell them (for example you cannot take one of my PNG files and convert it to SVG and sell it). You must use my design(s) to make something new and then you can sell the new digital files (in a flattened format only).

*If you are not an individual crafter or small business with a single owner, please contact me for specific licensing information.

Freebie Friday: Pixelscrapper Blog Train for April 2018

FREEBIE HAS EXPIRED BUT PRODUCT IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

This month’s Pixelscrapper Blog Train theme is “a Mug and a Book”. I got it ready early so I could feature it as the Friday Freebie for this week, since the 1st is Easter. If you’re like me you have plenty other things to do this weekend, what with cooking and family commitments, so I wanted you to have it early (rather than late! LOL)

I decided to make doodles of books and mugs/cups so that you can use them to make your own journal cards, tags, papers, stickers, planner printables, etc. The freebie includes 2 versions: black outlines (PNG) and full color (PNG). They are approximately 6 inches on the longest side (300 ppi, as always). Limited commercial use license is shown below.

Download: DollarDigitals (files will be delivered to you by my new shopping cart system, and I hope you will find it more user-friendly than Gumroad, if you’ve had problems downloading there).

If you need PSD with layers or TIFF with layers (ready to re-color with just a few clicks) you can purchase them with CU4CU license at DollarDigitals.

If you need the black outlines (PNG, AI, SVG) with CU4CU license they are also available at DollarDigitals.

TOU – Limited Commercial Use (for the freebie shown above):
OK for small commercial use (this means a small business with a single owner, or an individual crafter). It is not necessary to credit me. No additional license* is required (see below if you are not single owner business or individual crafter).

You may use my designs for, scrapbooking, printables, invitations, banners, websites, logos, blogs, card making, planner packs and stickers, etc. DO NOT sell my designs “as is”. You must add your own work to create something new.

You can print as many copies as you wish, and sell the prints. You may create an unlimited number of physical products to sell using these files, such as t-shirts, mugs, totes and more, but you may NOT upload my designs to print on demand sites, platforms, apps or kiosks.

blissful spring mini kit for digital scrapbooking

Freebie Friday: Blissful Spring Mini Kit for digital scrapbooking

FREEBIE HAS EXPIRED BUT PRODUCT IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE at DollarDigitals and Gumroad.

blissful spring mini kit for digital scrapbooking

Happy Freebie Friday! This week’s freebie is a digiscrap mini kit that includes 4 pretty lace backgrounds (textured) and 9 embellishments: 3 real flowers, 3 fabric flowers, 1 paper fan flower, 1 fabric leaf and 1 button.

Colors match the Pixelscrapper blog train for March 2018 (Love Knows No Borders).

ALTERNATE DOWNLOAD LINK AT MYMEMORIES will be free starting on Saturday (March 24th) because it’s a featured freebie for their Saturday newsletter. It will remain free until midnight Mountain Time on Friday, March 30th, and then it will remain in my store as a normal product available for purchase.

ENDING SOON:
ALL of my realistic elements (PNGs with transparent backgrounds, extracted/isolated from photos) are on sale for $2 now through March 26th. This means you save up to 60% off the regular prices, and they are all CU OK (OK for commercial use).

I’m busy creating new collections in this category, so if you love “realistics” and are looking for something specific, please let me know and I will add it to my product creation list!

NOTE: the realistic flowers in the top row are still FREE!


Bundle only $7.99 at MyMemories

Bundle only $8 at TheHungryJPEG

A few of my subscribers have mentioned that they prefer to make purchases at MyMemories rather than Gumroad. I’m working on getting all of my products uploaded to MyMemories, but progress is slow and I have no control over when they will be “live” in my store. It typically takes several days (or even a full week) for a product to be approved, and there is a limit to how many they will process at the same time, so even if I upload a dozen each day they won’t all go “live” at the same time. At any rate, within the next few weeks I hope that they will all be available for you to purchase at MyMemories.

I am also in the process of creating a REAL store of my own at DollarDigitals.com (up until now it has been more of a “gallery” of products with links to purchase them at various online stores, but the new store will have its own shopping cart so that I no longer have to give away 20% to 50% of my sales to someone else! I hope to launch the new store soon (possibly the week after Easter…)

I will still offer my products at the stores where I currently sell, but having a shopping cart on my own site will give me more control over the sales process and customer support. Some of the sites where I sell are doing a great job at customer support, but some of them are not, and when customers repeatedly tell me that they don’t like a certain site’s way of doing things or that they’re having difficulties downloading freebies or making purchases and can’t get anyone from “support” to help them, that REALLY bothers me! I’ll let you know when my store is ready…

On the first of every month I will draw 1 name from each of my lists. The winners will each receive a voucher that is good for $5 of my products. If you are on BOTH lists, it is possible that your name could be chosen TWICE in the same month, which means you would win $10 in free products. (Winners will choose the products that they would like to receive, and I will upload their product bundles to my Gumroad shop. If you have difficulty downloading from Gumroad, I will make another option available for you, such as Google Drive.) These vouchers have no expiration date, so if you would like to save your credit, that’s perfectly fine.

NOW, for today’s FREEBIE!

This week’s freebie is a printable Easter card with morning glories in shades of purple & lavender, on a background of soft & shabby lavender & purple stripes. A coordinating envelope is included, plus a set of seals.

Pixelscrapper Blog Train Freebie – February 2018

FREEBIE HAS EXPIRED BUT PRODUCT IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

When this month’s palette was released I initially had difficulty. It’s easy to design something pretty when the palette has some of my favorite colors, but this one has a lot of colors I will probably never use. Finally, I decided to make vintage digistamps and just let everyone choose their own colors (or you can leave them black and use as an overlay on your favorite papers).

The square stamp (bottom left) is approximately 6×6 inches, and the others are 6×4 / 4×6 (perfect for journal cards). One is perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!

Need ideas for ways you can use these digistamps? I have a Pinterest board with lots of ideas!

You have two alternatives for downloading this freebie: Gumroad or MyMemories. (Please note that the product name and branding at MyMemories are slightly different, but the stamps are identical and so is the TOU.)

If you love vintage style you’ll find lots of uses for these stamps: scrapbooking, card making, printables… and my generous Commercial Use license is included, so you can use these to create lots of pretty things to sell (physical products AND digital designs). Please read my commercial use TOU, and contact me if you have any questions.

These digistamps will be free for the month of February 2018.

Dragonfly Fantasies Mini Kit only 99 cents! (through February 8, 2018)

It’s a cheerful theme and palette that are well-loved by girls of all ages (which includes lots of “grown-up” women that I know).

FREEBIE HAS EXPIRED (PRINTABLE ELEMENTS) but the milk carton templates are still available for free.

This week’s freebie is a set of printable elements you can use to decorate your Advent Milk Carton Boxes. You can download the MILK CARTON TEMPLATE here.

Freebie Friday: Printable Christmas Pattern Papers

FREEBIE HAS EXPIRED BUT PRODUCT IS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

This week’s freebie is a set of 8 cute printable Christmas papers.

They’re great for making scrapbooks, cards, wrapping small gifts, and perfect for use with last week’s milk carton template.

Freebie Friday Milk Carton Gift Box Printable Template

THIS FREEBIE HAS EXPIRED

This week’s freebie is a printable template for making “milk carton” boxes. They’re just the right size for small gifts, candies & sweets, or use as storage for special mementos. (Download link at the bottom of this post.)

I printed mine at 100% and the assembled size is 4 and 3/8 inches high, and each of the four sides are 2.5 x 2.5 inches. (That’s approximately 11 cm high, with sides of 6.5 x 6.5 cm.) If your printer won’t do this at 100%, you can size it down a bit. Your box will be a little smaller than mine, but it should be fine.

Print the template on one side of card stock or photo paper. On the other side of the paper print your choice of patterned digital paper. Cut out (solid lines) and fold on the dotted lines. It’s fairly easy to figure out, but I’ll be making a video tutorial in the next few days, in case you run into difficulties.

Note about paper weight: I used a light weight cardstock for mine. It should be thin enough to run it through your printer yet a bit rigid so it holds up when you put things into the box. If you’ll be putting something heavy into the box, be sure to glue the bottom flaps together securely, and maybe glue a square piece of cardstock to the inside bottom, for extra support.

Milk Carton Mockup (decorating idea for Valentine’s Day, Easter or Mother’s Day)

If you don’t have a color printer, choose a pattern that looks good in black and white (or shades of grey) like I did.

The paper I used is from this set by Eva-Katerina, available at Creative Market. I’m planning to print the decorative elements in color (at my local print shop), and cut them out then attach them to my boxes.

Now let’s talk about… CHRISTMAS ADVENT BOXES

In the next few weeks I will provide you with more free printables that will help you turn a set of these milk cartons into Christmas Advent boxes.

For now, print out one of these templates and see how long it takes you to cut, fold and paste one together. Based on how long it took me to construct one box, I’m planning to set aside an entire afternoon for creating and decorating a set of 24 milk carton boxes to make my Christmas Advent set.

Once decorated, I think these would look cute hanging on the Christmas tree, don’t you? Stop by next week for freebies you can use to decorate your milk carton boxes.
