The Nerve of Some People!!

craftingourlives has this kit for sale on EBay



I had a lovely blogging friend alert me to this card kit that was being sold on EBay out of Canada!! The nerve of some people.

She has a 100% rating AT THE MOMENT!!

You should definitely check it out as you might have some of your designs being CASED too -
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Stampin-Up-Butterfly-Flourish-Card-Kit-/280642985550?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4157a01e4e

The seller's name is craftingourlives. She certainly lives up to her name!!

Does anyone else think that if you sell card kits it should be your own design? I have my disclaimer at the bottom of the page which she obviously ignored!! (Here's my card BTW)

I'm peeved!

PS: Another friend found these similarities with another sold kit from the same seller -

Sorry. I don't know what she was thinking. Can you report her to SU? It's nice to have people like your designs but enough was not changed to have it called her own. She should read copyright law.

OMG! That's awful!

Thought I should let you know that sometimes a seller's homepage on ebay says they have no items when they do. Seems to be a glitch. But if you click it anyway her items should come up.

If you're logged in to ebay and can see the items they've previously sold, one set of yours has sold already (before the one in your post). Not sure if you'll be able to see this link - http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Stampin-Up-Butterfly-Flourish-Card-Kit-/260750989921?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cb5f85a61

Some people are unbelievable!

Oh the nerve, thats horrible Bron.
I agree with you that she should come up with own designs.
KimB said…
It is so clearly a rip off Bron!! I totally understand how annoyed you are!
Anonymous said…
UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! I cannot beleive that she states that they are HER creations in her description of her home page. Absolutely disgusted! I must say that grey and orange flower one looks familiar to me too. What do you think? Also have you contacted her?
It's a shame you cannot see what has been sold by her previously.
By the way...LOVE YOUR WORK!! LOL!

I've just gone through her past items sold and yours is not the only one :( I've just sent you and email with the details.
Patrice said…
OMG Bron that's terrible. I haven't checked it out yet, but if I were you I'd be flicking her an email of some sort asking her to come clean.
Richelle said…
Gee that's really poor form!
Leonie said…
I dont blame you for being annoyed, nobody should be able to profit off your design. On the up side, it is a very lovely card! lol!

I feel so bad for you Bronwyn. I didn't realise people did this.
Amazing what some people stoop to isn't it?
Is there anything you can do about it do you think?
Tania Gould said…
OMG I can't believe the nerve of that woman! AGHH that really pee's me off!
Monica Gale said…
OH DEAR !THAT IS NOT COOL> I would contact her straight away, so sorry this has happened to you, the nerve of some huh?. M xxx
Sherry Kushibab said…
Very nervy - I hope your able to let her know what she has done.
That is so disappointing! Is there anything you can do? Can you report her to E-bay? It must be so frustrating! What a good pick up from your friend! Hugs xxaxx
Just popped over to E-bay ... and this seller has no items listed at the moment. But ... the bad thing is ... she will probably just set up under another name ... at some stage! Hugs xxaxx
Ooops ... found a couple of listings! ... so ignore that last comment! giggle! Hugs xxaxx

I can't believe this either.....perhaps they think because they are on the other side of the world no one with know. But SNAP!!
Nikki said…
You can check her previous sales by clicking on her name - you can view the last six months worth of cards. I'd be contacting her and eBay - she has sold heaps and heaps of kits. I think SU would want to know too as she is selling stamped images too.
how ignorant.....here is an ebay listing using a preorder stamp set - must be a demonstrator......argh!!!http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Stampin-Up-The-Open-Sea-Masculine-Card-Kit-/280661394491?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4158b9043b

i am sorry this has happened to you.

We have copyright law in Canada and also Stampin' Up Canada. If you have not already resolved this, just contact Stampin' Up Canada head office and I imagine they will set fire to her tail.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!
and ...
 JUGs #350 - Word Week

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -



Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -



Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink


1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.


This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.


2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.


3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.


4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).


5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
