New blog - Capricious Tuts

Just a really brief note from me tonight.  I started a new blog recently where I intend to post tutorials aimed at PSP users to create scrap elements.  I've not actually started or posted anything just yet, but I'm hoping I'll be able to spend some time tomorrow doing that - at least get one tutorial written and posted.  I wanted to post here to announce the new blog in case anyone would be interested in taking a look.  You can click the logo to visit the new blog.

Happy New Year to you all & stay tuned to this blog for a new post coming at midnight for January's blog train kit.

TOU - Updated 12/30/2011

I've updated my TOU effective as of today, December 30, 2011.  Basically, everything that was allowed previously is still allowed.  I've added a few new "you may" notes and tried to condense them a bit.  All the specifics are noted below.  I'll now be allowing commercial/for-profit use as well.  I've been approached a few times asking if my drawn images were allowed to be used as clipart in others' scrapkits.  I'd never been able to figure out how to allow free and licensed use, but after seeing a few different blogs where others did just that, I thought I'd give it a go myself and see how it works out.

If you have any questions or need anything clarified, please email me, and I'll get back to you as quickly as possible.

Capricious Scraps TOU
Updated 27 December 2011

My terms of use are divided into 2 basic sections. 
     •  The first is personal/non-profit use.
     •  The second is commercial/for-profit use.


You may use my scraps & elements posted here on my blog for any non-profit use you'd like, whether for yourself or to share with others.  Basically, if you're making something to give away, feel free to use the items I've created & posted here to share however you'd like.

For non-profit uses when making a final item (tag, email stationery, card) for yourself or others, providing credit to me is optional (although it's always appreciated).  You may simply say "Scraps by Amy" or "Capricious Scraps," with or without the © symbol.

For non-profit uses when using one of my items to make a new scrap item you're giving away or some other sort of resource file, there is a credit requirement.  Please provide credit to me for the items used in your own TOU or credit file and provide a link back to my blog.


You may also use my posted scraps & elements from my blog for any for-profit use you'd like as well.  If you'd like to use them commercially to make money in some way, a license may be purchased via PayPal for $2.00 per item you'd like to use, or an unlimited use license covering all items on my blog (current & future) is available for a flat $20.00.  Again, you may use all my items commercially in any way you'd like unless otherwise noted.  If anything is off-limits for commercial uses, it will be noted in the downloaded zip file's individual TOU file.

In for-profit uses, there is a credit requirement.  Please include a credit for items used in your own TOU or credit file and provide a link back to my blog.

So, all in all, everything is allowed.  That includes making signature tags for yourself or others, email stats, desktop wallpapers, blog layouts, new scrap items like cluster frames, using my drawn images as clipart in scrapkits of your own, etc.  That's just a short list of ideas off the top of my head.  If you have an idea of how to use my items that isn't specifically spelled out and you'd like clarification, please email me at capriciousdream [at] gmail [dot] com.

Just don't claim my files as your own.  Take them, do something with them, make them unique & different, then share them, and let folks know where you snagged the original files.

If you're interested in commercial use, please contact me by email at capriciousdream [at] gmail [dot] com.  Thanks!


New Download Links for All Files

Hello everyone :)  I've just finished updating all of my download links to use SkyDrive rather than 4Shared or Mediafire.  Based on all the responses I got on my last couple of posts, most everyone seemed to prefer SkyDrive over the other sites.

The only downside is on my end as there is nowhere to leave a comment on SkyDrive nor is there any way to count how many downloads any given file gets.  I hope you all will be able to leave a comment either on the individual posts or in the chatbox if you download or like something.  That way I'll have a better idea of what to do more of or what's most popular. 

While I was updating all those links, I have also updated my TOU file in each download zip.  I'll post a second entry later pertaining specifically to the new TOU.

Jingle & Jangle

I wanted to do a new batch of Christmas images, and I started on the elves several days ago.  Seeing as how Christmas is just a couple of days away, I figured I'd go ahead and share what I had finished.  I hope someone will like some of the bits & be able to put them to use. :)

The last kit I shared using Skydrive, and everyone seemed to like using that site better than either 4shared or Mediafire.  So that's where I've uploaded this as well.  I'm off work next week so I'm going to try reuploading my other, older kits & bits to Skydrive and will update the links as I get them ready.  I'm going to be changing/updating my TOU as well so will try to do everything at the same time. 

- Jingle & Jangle the elves (each 1000 px tall)
- 2 evergreen trees (over 1000 px tall)
- Wreath (500 px)
- 2 stockings (each 800 px tall)

Download from Skydrive here (There isn't a place on Skydrive to leave a comment so please leave a note here, either in the comments or the chatbox. Thanks!)

Silent Night Blog Train

The new train for this month is taking off!  The theme for this month's train was 'Silent Night' - think of sparkly snow on a winter's night.  There are some lovely kits from the other ladies so be sure to visit all the stops.  Links to all their blogs are down below in this post.  Hope you guys will like my portion & be able to put it to some use! :)

- 12 papers (800 x 800 px)
- 3 frames (1 is a decorated cluster)
- 4 ribbons (900 px long)
- 26 elements including bows, flowers, glitter swirls, foil stickers & snowflakes
- Full alpha including upper & lowercase letters as well as numbers & punctuation (my first ever - hope it's usable!)
- 3 mouse-drawn elements including a snowman, decorated snow globe, and an empty one for you to fill & decorate

Click image below to see the preview at a larger size.

Download from SkyDrive here (I'm trying something new.  There shouldn't be any wait times here. Let me know if you like this method more than the other two options.)
