These downloads are intended for PERSONAL SCRAPBOOKING USE ONLY. For us…personal scrapbooking includes those pages AND projects that you create from your OWN photos and for your own albums/purposes. This could include personal scrapbooking pages, family cards…or any other family projects that are for PERSONAL use only with absolutely NO commercial/professional purposes. OF COURSE…you are free to create multiple albums from your photos to share with family…but, you are not allowed to use our graphics to create albums for others (using their photos, etc.).
You may not share or redistribute our downloads in ANY way. This means that you may not take our kits, create something new with them and share them (either for free or paid). You may not share them as they are…or altered or in any way. You may direct family and friends here to ShabbyPrincess.com, so that they can download their own free copy. For example, you may not download our free kits…use them to create a printable bookmark and then share that bookmark on your site/blog (again, it does not matter if you are sharing for free or pay).
Please understand that by downloading a file…this does NOT mean that it becomes your property – and you CANNOT do with it as you please :) Under no circumstances will we tolerate the redistribution, sharing, selling, etc. of our products! We spend alot of time creating and giving these kits and we always retain ownership and copyright. So…please feel free to use them in your personal scrapbooks to preserve all of those precious memories and moments for your family!
What this means is that the ONLY allowed use for the downloads atwww.shabbyprincess.com is for PERSONAL scrapbooking as mentioned above. We do not allow for ANY type of commercial use whatsoever. Commercial use includes (but is not limited to) the following: websites, marketing/promotional materials, print on demand items/products, eBay ME pages, eBay selling pages, eBay templates, website templates, custom cards, custom scrapbook pages for others, commercial blogs or any project/item/site that generates any form of income.
…and it is LITTLE :) IF you have a PERSONAL blog or website that you would like to embellish using our free downloads…that is permitted AS LONG AS there is NOTHING commercial about the site (no affiliate links…no links to your eBay/Etsy store…no advertising…NOTHING). This is strictly for those who have a family website or blog that is used to keep in touch with family and friends. Please note that credit and copyright must be given to www.shabbyprincess.com on any page where our graphics are being used.
Please understand that contacting us for permission to use our downloads for anything more than personal scrapbook pages will have to be declined.
There are so many reasons for this…but, in all honesty – the kits are downloaded sooooo many times that we would never be able to manage/control the commercial usage and requests…so, we have to have a strict policy in place.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION!
:::Here are just a few Frequently Asked Questions regarding our terms. For MORE information, please visit our full FAQ page:::
Can I make “quick-pages” or other items from your products to share (I will be making no money from sharing)?
I’m so sorry – but creating quickpages (or any other derivative product/design) with our products to share for free (or for profit) is not allowed under our terms as it is considered as a form of redistribution. Again, our free downloads are specifically and only for your personal scrapbooking enjoyment. Even if you create an item from our kits to share for FREE on your blog, it is not allowed.
Can I use your products to create my Church’s newsletter (I am not being paid for this project)?
If you are a member of the Church, and volunteering your time and would like to work with our free products…then this is generally OK. Please keep in mind that if you are being compensated (in any way) for your design services, then you may NOT work with our products (free or paid). Our permission is only given on the basis that you are a volunteer designer…AND, no profits will be made from the newsletter and/or flyer.
May I use your products (free or pay) on my website/blog (personal OR commercial)?
BOTH our free AND paid products are OK for PERSONAL blogs and websites. But, your blog or website must TRULY be of a personal/family nature. Here is a definition that should help:
For us, a PERSONAL blog/website is your OWN blog/site (not one that you are designing for someone else’s personal OR professional use) that is intended for family/friends to share photos, family updates, etc. If it promotes or advertises a business…features affiliate links, Google ads, paid advertising, etc…then it would be considered a professional/commercial blog and would not be allowed.
An example – you are a photographer and have a blog to supplement your professional site. If you use your blog to discuss or promote your photography at all, then it would be considered PROFESSIONAL and would not be allowed. However, if you are a photographer and have a personal, family blog that has nothing to do with your photography business – then you can absolutely work with our kits for that site :o)
We do kindly request a credit link back to ShabbyPrincess.com, or the Shabby Shoppe on all blogs and sites. You can simply add a text link – or grab one of our fun (and already hosted) blinkies HERE!
