Terms of Use

Terms of Use
Copyright ©2013 by Krystal Hartley
All Rights Reserved


Commerical Use / Designer Resource products by Krystal Hartley are created for use by digital scrapbook designers to make Personal Use and S4O/S4H products. Please email me at scrapbook@krystalhartley if you want to use them in other ways, as the license can possibly extended to suit your needs. Additional licensing for other uses may also be available.

My commercial use products are available exclusively at SugarHillCo and do not apply to items purchased at Sweet Shoppe Designs. My Personal Use TOU is farther down the page.

You'll need to alter these products before including them in your scrapbook kits. I'm going to list some MAYs and MAY NOTs below, but the litmus test you can use when trying to decide if you've altered enough is whether or not the end-user (your customer) can simply desaturate and/or change to black and have it be essentially the same item you purchased from me. If the answer is yes, then it is not altered enough.
  • Use my CU products to create digital scrapbook kits which can include kits approved for S4HO/S4H AND FREEBIES (so long as these terms are followed / ie pass the litmus test)
  • Make a backup copy in case of loss or destruction.
  • Alter the size and color, apply styles and filters, or generally change the appearance of the item.
  • Request permission to use my designs for any type of project not specifically permitted by these terms.
  •  claim these images as your own
  •  create new commercial use or designer resource products
  •  redistribute in whole or part in file-sharing groups or sites, stock image sites, send them through Google, Yahoo or other “list” groups, etc.
  •  create brushes or tubes
  •  create templates or overlays
  •  use for any harmful, pornographic, obscene, defamatory, or racial material
  •  Mixed Media Mashups can be used to make papers. You are welcome to mix and match layers from the different templates to create endless options. You can even use some of the layers to create items that are not papers (such as graffiti), so long as it is altered in way that the end-user cannot simply desaturate or recolor to black and end up with the same piece (note I said piece and not layered template...even the individual layers will need to be altered if you are going to use them for outside of the template) that you purchased from me. You can even make JUST paper packs as long as my products aren't more than 50% of the pack.
  •  Stamp Stash sets can be used to make graffiti (you'll need to combine these with other brushes or elements to pass the litmus test defined above) or to make patterns or add interest to papers and elements, etc. Stamp Stash sets CANNOT be used to create a new brush/stamp pack. 
  •  Alphas can be used to make word art, title art, elements, etc. They need to pass the litmus test, so simply recoloring and including them as the alpha in your kit is a no-go, but you could add them to a paper shape, tag, etc. to create an alpha.
  •  Paper Overlays can be used to make papers (and even just paper packs as long as not more than 50% of your product). You can also use them creatively on elements, to make graffiti, etc.
