TGIF: Free for All Friday!

Hi friends!  It's Amanda from One Extra Degree!  I am really excited about our Friday post, because, let's face it, everyone loves freebies!  If you've been following my blog for a while, you probably already know that I use a lot of clip art from Scrappin' Doodles.  LOVE THEM!  We want you to know that their TOU {Terms of Use} have changed recently, and at the risk of sounding preachy, while there are still ways to share free resources, there are a few guidelines to consider.  Here they are...  in their own words:


Here are the Terms for freebie educational printables using Scrappin' Doodles clip art:
-The item you are posting for free MUST be educational.
- The item must be created by you and made into a secured PDF document.
- You may not take and share any one else's freebies, this is strictly forbidden.
- The item you are posting for FREE can ONLY be posted for free on YOUR OWN blog or website and your blog or website must be educational / teaching.
- You may NOT post anything for free on Teachers Pay Teachers or any other website or GROUP that you are not the sole owner and poster of, NO EXCEPTIONS.
- You  may only use my Scrappin Doodles artwork, both Cheryl Seslar and Alice Smith do not allow sharing of any printables and their artwork may not be used.
- Credit MUST be given back to Scrappin Doodles in a clickable link in the description of the item.
- You MUST purchase our $15.00 license and post it on your blog or website linking back to Scrappin Doodles. This button will have a unique number exclusive to you (I will customize a button unique for your blog or website) and it is valid for only 1 website or blog that you are the sole owner. If you own more then one website or blog you will need to purchase a button for each one. I am doing this so I can keep track of my graphics and make sure everyone is following our TOU. Please read the Terms in the listing for the button found HERE.
All our other TOU posted on our website still apply:


Since this is not my own individual blog, and since I have not purchased the $15.00 license yet, I will not be sharing any resources using Scrappin' Doodles clip art at this time.  I do, however, highly endorse that website & the clip art!  Can we say AMAZING?!

DJ Inkers still ONLY permits the sharing of free {not commercial} items, so I'm going to go that route with a little Fonts for Peas thrown in there until I can get a handle on the clip art situation.  PLEASE be careful as you share your creativity and your freebies.  If you are linking up, please take the time to read the TOUs for your clip art sites to ensure that you aren't breaking any rules.  Always double check to see if you need a commercial license or need to link back to the website before posting.  :)  At this point in time, we all need to stick together and help each other out!  If you have any news on any more TOU changes, please let us know!

On behalf of all of the authors at Blog Hoppin', THANK YOU for participating in Teacher Week to help us kick off a fabulous new school-year {and blog}.  :) 

Now it's your turn to link up with all of your fabulous freebies below!  Have a "hoppy" weekend!
