Copyright: Play Nice Please
While this site exists to share my ideas, designs and techniques, I'd prefer not to have my work submitted/published elsewhere under your name - these ideas are shared for your personal use, inspiration and education only. All content (instructions, images, and designs), unless noted otherwise, are Copyrighted by Kate Palmer - 2009. The copyright of stamped or printed images remains with designers and companies responsible for their production.
Just to be clear ….. I don't claim to 'own' the techniques or layouts on my site - once you create your own version, even it it was based on something I did it becomes 'yours'. What I do consider mine is my choice of colours, embellishments, papers, stamps and decorating choices. If you copy this exactly then you are copying my work. My words are also my own, I 'own' these, the way I have chosen to describe things is copyrighted. If you copy my choice of words (either copy and paste, forwarding or even re-typing) - you are breaching copyright. If you want to pass something on, you must put what I have written into your own words.
Please feel free to share what you learn on my site, just don't 'copy' what I have done. If you are at all unsure, please email me - I'm fairly approachable and have not yet received a request I've rejected.
Ask for permission if you want to use any of the content on this web site, for any purpose other than individual use - you'l find in most cases I am happy to help. I've even had people teach classes based on my techniques - you'll find as long as you ask and let people know where the awesome idea came from (ie ME), that I'm usually happy to spread the joy.
I use affiliate links on this blog. This means that I earn a small commission on products purchased through some of the links on this page. This does not cost you any more, it is simply a way to subsidize the cost of operating this blog and purchasing new supplies. It also helps me to continue to offer new video tutorials and blog posts.
Please note this is a personal blog written and edited by me (Kate Palmer aka Sparkle Tart), the comments and reviews on this blog reflect my personal opinion and are in no way associated with the views or opinions of any businesses I am associated with.
In the spirit of full and complete disclosure: I declare I am a freelance artist and designer and I currently receive or have received in the past, products (either free or at a discount) from the following companies: X-Press Graph-X, Lindy's Stamp Gang, Sweet Pea Stamps, Paper Temptress
While the provision of product may influence the 'items' used in some posts, the actual reviews, opinions and content is always an honest view - good or bad I will always give you MY view on things. One of the perks of being 'freelance' is that I can endorse and review products as I choose and with complete honesty. I can promote the products I LOVE and use myself, I will never and have never endorsed a product, company or artist that I feel is substandard or does not perform as expected.
