Gone for a burton!!!!

Well loads of you have been asking where has my blog header gone, To say I am upset is an understatement...

When we buy our crafts especially stamps we want to make the most of them , show them off, I thought I was doing just that with my handstamped header, but it seems to have upset someone!!!

I received an email from Stampingbella saying that I had to remove it because the artist of the fairies would not approve, and as there was a chance of my blog being removed if I did not do this, I decided my blog was worth more than advertising Bella stamps for free!!! God only knows why the artist would not approve, I am dumbfounded!!! and a little upset that my emails have not been replied too... I know I won't be buying anymore of the fairy range thats for sure....

A good friend has made me another one from one of my cards, and I thankgod for good freinds (you know who you are) my fairy godmother!!!!

  7. What a bummer Kim :( I was looking at the stamping bella website only yesterday trying to decide which stamps to buy but my decison is made now I'm not buying any of them! How on earth someone can object to free advertising is beyond me but their loss is our gain as we will get to see one of your cards as your header instead....and soon please. lol! Chin up kid :) Donna x

  8. Well I agree with Sue Kim. Do you know why there is a fairy on top of a christmas tree hun? Well it is because one was helping Santa with the the chrizzie trees many years ago and she took one to him and asked him where to put it, and her told her lol xxx Perhaps you should tell em the same chicken xxxxx

  14. Hello - just to chip in...not sure if it will help, but may clear a few things up!?!?

    Most images, papers, stamps, digi kits, digi elements are copyrighted to the artist. Most products say in the small print that they should not be used commercially, or for web designs/blog headers. Anything with a copyright symbol is basically a no-go. Even most fonts belive it or not.

    I think this is so that the image is not tampered with, distorted or claimed by someone else as their own work. However, it's always worth asking the artist's permission first and they may let you use it once they've seen the image you've created.

    I've noticed that lots of blogs are using images, papers, digi elements that they probably shouldn't be. You just happened to get caught - shame as I thought your header was lovely...and as you say, free advertising for some very pretty stamps.

    Also, some digi shops (Shabby Princess.com) have now started selling blog header digi kits which is a fab idea and saves any confusion about what can be used.

    Hope that clears up why you were probably asked to remove it...just one of the unlucky ones basically!

  15. How petty I won't buy those stamps either.

    They have lost free advertising and some customers.

  16. I'm not buying any more of those fairies either if that is how mean and petty minded they are going to be. The mind boggles that a bit of free advertising can cause such an upset.

    Chin up hunny, they AIN'T worth it!!!

    I love the new header too!!

    hugs Bev x
