  • Paper Scrapbooking Supplies

    I posted this on another board quite some time ago, but never really got an answer so I thought I'd get some opinions here.

    I have a ton of papers (and other stuff) from my non-digi scrapbooking days and feel like I wasted a ton of money because it is just sitting there. I know it is all (or mostly) copyrighted stuff. However, is it okay to scan it and use it once as I would have done if I had continued with paper scrapping? Also, if this is okay and you have done this can you give me your thoughts on it. What I mean is does it scan okay. I have a smaller format printer that won't scan my 12 x 12 pages, but I thought of cutting them down and scanning them....that is if I won't be breaking any copyright laws.

    Oh, and I thought of this earlier today. Is it only okay to post layouts here using only Scapbook Max supplies or can one post layouts that contain papers etc. from another site so long as credit is given to that person/site?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Hi Amy! I have scanned things on the scanner, some papers, embellishments. etc if I needed something to go along with my theme. I just scan it and then resize the paper to 8x8, cause that is the size I work with the most. I have also googled things to fit in my layout, just have to give credit thats all. The only thing you have to remember is IF you didnt make it, dont claim it as your own. You can post anything in the gallery. I have tons of freebies from blogs and other scrap sites, and I use them and put them in the gallery. With proper credit given. Now get off these boards and get to work will ya!! LOL It'll be Christmas before we see anything out of ya! hahahahahah

        Thanks crops2dawn. However, I do have a comment. It seems I see you alot on the boards so who do you think you are to tell me to get off the boards and get to work? He! He! As much as I seem to see you here, you cannot be scrapping that much!

        Wow! You must really be good to be paid to scrap. I know what you mean about wishing it was digital, but hey you are getting paid to do something fun. Congrats to you on that and have lots of fun with it.

          I'm not sure about the paper scanning and copyrighted stuff-but someone else on here will be able to help you out with that. But you can post anything from other sites that you make into a LO as long as you give them the credit; but you can't take someone else's stuff and change it or make a LO of it and call it your own.

              You can post LO using kits that aren't from SBM, I've posted a few the only thing they wouldn't want you doing is posting the template to the page as you would be giving away things you have not created yourself. Same would go for designers from SBM. You can happily post LO as this is only a single layered image and you can't pull anything from it. The templates are usable [as long as they have SM] by anyone who wishes to download them.

                  LOL you are sooooo right Amy!!! I wish I wasnt sooo addicted to this place!! If I would scrap as much as I gibber gabber on this board I would be caught up on everything. At one point in my life I was caught up, now FORGET IT!!!! I am soooo far behind, its useless to try and even get caught up!!!!

Gee crops I wished someone would pay me to use their stuff and make things.Congradualtions.I have enough paper that will go up to my knees when stacked.Still buying. Though I also like digital better.

                      I could startmy own shop with paper stuff I have. I used to be a Creative memories cons;tant and we used to have to place a certain amount to order each month. I spent so much to do this and of course was a big mistake! I must put it on e bay.I'm scared it'll go for nothing though.

                        I can relate Eng! I was with Creative Memories too and ended up with a lot of inventory. Needless to say, I made nothing cause I kept placing orders!

                          Thanks y'all. I learned from reading on another site the rules about giving credit to whose ever stuff I use and to of course never take credit for someone else's stuff. I definitley would never do that. As a matter of fact, I started collecting stuff before I knew that I needed to know whose stuff it was and had to go back and figure it out. The few I couldn't figure out, I delted as I wouldn't want to use anything not knowing who to give credit to. When you give credit do you just post under your layout the names of the people whose stuff you used? Do I need to list the site too? There is one site that I got a TON of stuff off of but since it wasn't here, I don't know if I use that as part of my credits.

                          Crops--I can already feel myself becoming just like you. This place is addictive! I think there are many others here enjoying the chatting and getting further behind on their scrapping. At least we are having fun, huh?

                            Yes Amy, you can put the site you got the stuff from, just not the link.
                            Unlike you, when I first started I didnt even think of copyright laws, but I wouldnt delete it!!! I would just say something to the affect, that none of this is mine. Or I would use it for my personal use aka the secret scrapbook nobody gets to see. LOL
                            But I have learned to keep everyones stuff in there special folder, that way its easy to remember. I keep everything on my desk top and use the drop and drag method. Sooo much easier. You might want to try that yourself.
