Welcome to the blog where everything is free...

These pages will be filled with scrapping freebies as often as I can find the time to make them.
So come back from time to time to check what's new.

What a Weekend….!

I want to star by thanking Anonymous who had discovered my designs in other places under a different author’s name. Thank you so much - whoever you are. I have been absolutely burning with anger all weekend. Not because of Anonymous “The Informer” (to her I am eternally grateful), but because of Anonymous “The Thief(s)”. Can you explain to me what they get from stealing other people’s designs, repack them (without my TOU of course) and upload as their own? They didn’t even bother to make their own preview…

The only positive things I have to say about people like that is that they are kind enough not to sell my designs and making money on my freebies (as far as know!) and they have really good taste in design…

So if you by any chance are one of the culprits back here for more - STOP IT! Try making your own designs. When you find out how much time (and money) it takes you might think twice before stealing from others.

If you are a fellow designer of freebies you might want to check out these sites for your designs:

http://kopona.org
http://www.downturk.info/

If you on your way around cyber space see any of my designs posted by others than me, please let me know by posting a comment or sending me an email.

Finally, a BIG thank you to Beth from the UK for saving my weekend with her really kind "thank you mail" - I love that kind of mails. It's nice to know that appreciation wins over abuse.

But enough about that - I can feel the anger coming back… I better read Beth's mail again before I go on...


Ahh, that's better.

Today I give you more love - another Valentine Alpha in gradient glitter from pink to silver. You get a full alpha (including Danish Æ, Ø & Å) with numbers and symbols.

Have fun and see you in February.

Thanks for the alpha! I'm so sorry people are pirating your designs. It's really sad how some people are. . . no respect. :(

Hello Trine!
Sorry about your week-end...
You may think that people love your designs too much!
If I see something, I'll tell you.
I'd like to know who is this person...
Thanks a lot for all your gifts and love!
Friendly. Kisses from Sim.

Thank you for all the wonderful files you make for us. I always love them.You are very talented. It is so sad that some people do not have a conscious and steal from others. Yesterday, I read a designer is done sharing her designs because of piracy. I wonder if hers were on the sites you listed?? What a shame! What goes around comes around! Ann

Suzanne said...

So sorry! I saw another designer post the same sort of message today about her designs being used in an unauthorized manner, so you unfortunately aren't the only one. It is SO wrong, and hopefully whoever is doing that will STOP!!

Thanks so much for your alpha, and for sharing your creativity with us 'good' people!

Thanks for sharing!

Sorry to hear that you have also been affected by those who steal designs. Another designer who offers gorgeous freebies was also affected and her designs are also offered on that Downturk site. Hopefully you have some recourse.

A BIG THANK YOU for the stunning glitter alpha. God bless!

Oh, it makes me so angry to hear of these instances of piracy!! I hadn't heard of anyone doing this for quite some time, but in the last couple of weeks I have seen several designers complaining & being very upset. It is a very great shame, when these gifts are used in the wrong way. I sincerely hope this person or these people grow a conscience very soon. Thank you so much for all that you share .. it is truly appreciated! xxx
