It is official

I've known for a little while, but it is feeling more and more real this week. They have had some problems getting me set up, but it is official now! Woohoo!

You will soon be finding my stuff at Natural Designs in Scrapbooking (NDISB) and 3Scrapateers.

You can find my NDISB store here. There is nothing in there yet.

They are still working on getting my store set up at 3Scrapateers. Soon though, I hope.

You can also still find my stuff at The Shaker Box.

So everyone keep your eyes peeled for all the new stuff in the future.

I have decided to alter my Terms of Use a little bit. Those of you who are interested in Scrap 4 Hire use will find these new terms to your liking.

This product was created by Stacey Sansom. You can find information about Stacey, specials, new products, and where to purchase products at Stacey's Digital Scrapbook Creations and/or Stacey Sansom Digital Scrapbook Designs ( I keep the list of where to buy my products updated on my blog, so if in doubt look there.

This product is SCRAP FOR HIRE friendly.

You MAY USE this product for personal use and/or scrap for hire use. This includes, but is not limited to: scrapbook layouts, flyers, brochures, cards, etc. You may use this product to create items for others so long as they are given as gifts in either a flattened, single layer digital file (finished product) or printed format. This may also include using this product to create handouts, flyers, invitations, brochures, etc for churches, non-profit organizations, etc. This includes if you want to use this product to scrap other individual's pictures and memories as a paid service. If you are paid for an end product, it is a "scrap for hire" use and you may use this product so long as you provide the end product in a flattened, non-editable format.

If you are interested in "COMMERCIAL" use of this product, please contact me at and we will discuss the terms. This includes using items to create other items that you will then turn around and sell as your own. I generally do not allow this use, but with the right incentives I am willing to consider it. Contact me.

You MAY NOT use this product to create quick pages or templates that are sold (or given away) as this would constitute commercial use. You may create quick pages and/or templates for your own use or in a "scrap for hire" setting, but please abide by the "scrap for hire" guidelines.

You MAY USE this product for "CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION" use if the end product is a flatted, non-editable format. This includes if you want to advertise a charity or if you would like to offer an item or service using this product in an auction or fund raising type setting.

You MAY USE this product for as many scrapbook pages as you like. Do not feel you may only use this product one time in one layout or project. Create a whole album from this product. That is the beauty of digital - repeat use.

You MAY PRINT scrapbook pages or other projects using this product as many times as you like. If you need 10 copies of a particular item for a hybrid project, go for it! If you need 10 copies of the same layout to give as gifts to 10 different people, then print, print, print.

You MAY POST scrapbook pages using this product in as many online galleries as you see fit to post them in. Please give credit where credit is due. I like seeing my products in use. I do occasionally run across layouts using my products and it brings me great joy. I even leave comments in galleries where things are posted.

You MAY SUBMIT for publication in various magazines (digital, print, or otherwise). Just be sure to give credit where credit is due. State my name (Stacey Sansom) as the designer, the item used, and the product name where the item was found. If your submission is selected for publication, please let me know I would love to hear about it/see it. Email me at and let me know about it.

PLEASE GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE! This credit includes stating my name (Stacey Sansom) as the designer, the items used, and the product name where used items were found. If you use a brad from "Kit A" state: "brad found in Kit A by Stacey Sansom." I'd appreciate if you also give some indication of where you purchased said product - either a store name and/or link or a link to my blog ( is appropriate.

You MAY NOT REDISTRIBUTE this product. This includes digitally or otherwise. You MAY NOT resell this product in full or in part. If someone wants a copy of it, tell them where they can get their own copy. You MAY NOT distribute this product in full or in part via email, email lists, online groups, file sharing services, etc.

You MAY STORE this product on more than one saving device or computer so long as you own said device. I recommend that you make regular backups of all your digital scrapbooking goodies (layouts, kits, etc). You MAY NOT, however, store this item on a friend's computer or external hard drive (or any storage device that does not belong to you). If your friend or family member does not reside in your household and wants their own copy of this product, tell them where to find this product so that they may purchase their own copy.

You MAY USE this product for blog banners, web backgrounds or elements, etc. You MAY NOT use this product to create website and/or blog templates for sale (or give away) as this would constitute commercial use. You MAY USE this product in a custom design for multiple individual clients so long as no end results are the same. If you are interested in using this product for creating website or blog templates for sale (or give away), please contact me first at and we will discuss the terms.
