Okay a cluster element is like when you grab several elements you made for your kit and you make one element out of them, here's an example



see how the swirls are under the flower and the butterfly is on top these are all seperate elements (Designed by Terrell Sanzone) and I grouped them together when I did the layout. so you would do something like that but make it out of your elements in your kit and then save it as a seperate element on it's own in png format.

Hope this makes it a bit clearer.

If not I'll be up most of the night, it's only 4.22 pm here LOL!!

Marta, Quickpages are like a page that is set up for others to slip their photos behind (you leave an open space for the pictures, sometimes in a frame), they must be saved in png format and usually you don't over decorate them so people can add their own embellishments too. Gee, I hope I explained this right Marta

Marta!! When you do a QP you do a layout without the photos, I usually put photos in while I am constructing it then use them as a shape to cut out of the merged (not flattened) image at the end then I delete the photo layers and save as png. Keep in mind that customers will want to put their own journalling and title in too so you have to allow space for them to do that.
Hope we are helping
Hugs

Thanks in advance Tracy
Be careful with fonts, free commerical use fonts are few and far between, most commerical fonts must be purchased, even for making freebies. You can always try and contact the font creator for permission to use it of course, if you can figure out who the creator is.

there are lots of public domain fonts. About half say that it ok to create something to sell as long as you are not outright copying the font and saying it is your own.

I have started 2 font folders - CU ok and CU ask

Lovely colors! I would also like to know if the use of metal is allowed.
Good luck to everyone!

Well I wanted to get a fair way into designing my kit so I decided to opt out of fonts and just wrote my own with my wacom pen, I'm pretty pleased with it, even though I don't have gorgeous handwriting at least I could photoshop it LOL, no actually roflmho!!!

It's 1.41am here and I have got 7 papers and 9 elements done so far, one of the elements is a cluster so far. I don't know if all of the papers I made tonight will make it into my kit though, but we don't have time to play around too much this time, I want to get it loaded well before it's due in case the site gets busy or 4 shared does. It can take ages sometimes.

Okay back to it!!
Have a great day on the other side of the globe!!
Tracy

Still waiting to hear on the metallics, but I'd say don't count on them.

A clustered element is an element that has several things put together, like a frame with added flowers and ribbons, or like the layered edges by Mamrotka and Aneczka.

Fonts, there are CU fonts, so if you have any of them, they're okay. Otherwise you're also okay with the ones that come standard with your computer programs.

Thanks Lori, I decided to forgo the metal and the fonts. Making me stretch that bit further.
It's so late here, 330am but I am on a roll and don't want to lose my inspiration LOL.
Thanks again
Tracy

Well goodness, I hope some of you got sleep! lol. I have had a tough time with this color pallet, it's hard to get all of the colors in (I initially wanted to drop it to two colors... lol... oops). Off to see what I can wrestle up.

Default Free Fonts - Commercial Use

Regarding the issue of using fonts...you might want to take a look at Larabie Fonts, in particular this page regarding use of his fonts for scrapbooking kits...

http://www.larabiefonts.com/scrapbookers.html

Hope this helps some of you!

I forgot to ask....regarding the use of metals...I understand that we can't make a whole metal element (say a gold flower for instance)...but I'm guessing that it's okay to use a little metal for staples, pins, chains on charms, etc??

I would like to know if we can use metal if it's black or white ... and if we are allowed things like squins, gems and beads. Basically, I've made and bought a whole load of presets and actions that create elements that can appear like metals but are not ... they are laquers, enamels and gems. Are these allowed if they are in the designated colors?

OMG! I LOVE these colors!! I can't wait to see what everyone is coming up with!

As for the fonts, Manfred Klein has hundreds of really nice fonts, his CU TOU are on his website at typOasis. I think the term used is Charity Ware, you can use them in freebies, but if you make a profit by using them he asks that you make a donation to an organization like Doctors without Borders.

ETA:

These are the TOU from the website

"Simple Terms of Use

Manfred’s fonts are free for private and charity use. They are even free for commercial use – but if there’s any profit, pls make a donation to organizations like Doctors Without Borders.

These fonts can NOT be included in any compilation CDs, disks or products, either commercial or shareware unless prior permission granted.

All typefaces were created by Manfred Klein 2001-2008."
