How to Download free files & Terms of Use

Thank You ever so much for visiting me and
thanks for wanting to use the digital stuff I make. Being able
 to  share with you is one of the greatest joys in my days!

 

 Most of the free stuff on my blog is hosted on
flickr (so it stays high resolution) and to save those files...


How to save these single papers directly from my blog:

PC users in Firefox/Chrome: Click on the paper you want & it will open a new window, 
then right click on the image & choose "save link as" 

PC users in Explorer: Click on the paper you want & it will open a new window, 
then right click on the image & choose "save target as"
 .
Mac users: Please visit the flickr links for each paper, then right click select 'all sizes'
& click on "download the original size of this photo"
 


sets



The things I share for free are not limited time offer (I've had some questions about that) They are just here for free, forever or until I can't pay for my flickr account anymore. (Heaven forbid!) lol.

(guidelines for use)


Please link and/or provide credit or attribution
if you use my work in things: melstampz.blogspot.com

A-okay...

  • Feel free to change my stuff however you like for personal use (alter the colour and so on, or whatever you can imagine!) Please just let people know where you found the original.
  • It's ok to sell handmade items you make using this.
  •  It is okay to share digital items you've made using my work, but only if they are shared for free, please.
  • Using as backgrounds for your own documents to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers is okay, but not as mere patterned backgrounds please (with other information in the file). Please provide a link to my blog somewhere, if you can. :-)
  • You're welcome to make and share a digital cut file, whatever you like (again, as long as the items are shared for free).
  • Want to use something as part of your personal blog or site design? Please be my guest!
  • Scrapbook for hire is a-okay as well.
  • Publishing handmade things made with this stuff in a magazine or ezine? Go for it!
    • Want to use something for a class? Just email me for details, please. Some of the things I have created in the past are derivative or altered from other templates (with credit given in the blog post, of course) but I wouldn't want us to circumvent another person's terms of use, accidentally.

    Please do not...

    • I ask that you do not use my work in creating commercial products or any mass produced products at all. (In some cases I may authorize commercial use, but only when I have given my written consent.)

    • Please do not use these to make digital printables for sale. And please do not sell digital or printed papers (or my files made into basic supplies of any kind). These things want to stay free as the wind unless they can be part of some kind of art. They told me so. ;o) 

    Have another use in mind?
    (Please email me at melstampz@gmail.com)

       Thank you for taking the time to read this & 
    I hope you have fun with my work!






    If you have any questions, 
    please don't hesitate to ask,


    P.S. I hope the new terms of use don't sound all bossy-pants. Really, the only reason I wrote them is encourage you to use things how you would like to, and to discourage any of the Naughties that might try to sell people digital stuff they can get here for free.

    can i just say whoa!!! you're too good to be true! i just stumbled upon your blog and am so glad that i did. i'm even going to "bookmark" your blog to come back to! i had to read your terms of use over and over again before the freeness of it really sunk in. too bad i don't really know how to do it. can i download and print your files even if i don't have photoshop? (sorry it's a dumb question, i've just never done anything like this before). thanks, dude!!!
