It's Kim from Katydid Cards again, here with a third YouTube video about CraftsUPrint, our monthly sponsor.

In the last video, CUP told you how to go about selling your handcrafted items through them, with no fees.



If you don’t want to sell your finished crafts on CraftsUPrint, you can also enroll in the Gold Star Programme which is a unique and simple way to earn money from the things you make.  Here a video with some details for you:


Just in case you're not interested in selling your crafts, here's another card making tutorial for you by Designer, Robyn Cockburn.  If you want to see more of her print and cut cards and crafts, you can do that here.


Don't forget our sketch challenge this month.  One lucky winner, picked at random, will receive a digital CD from CraftsUPrint.  Here's the sketch and here's where you can link your entree.  Plus we will pick our three favorites and you get a badge for your blog or social media...plus bragging rights.

  Sketchy Saturday

Pin It



 Hello, this is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you this sketch I found on the web. This sketch was designed by  Susan Stringfellow for Basic Grey's challenge blog:




I like this sketch for a back to school layout or some other festive (LOL) time. I like that it uses 4x6 in. pictures as well as 4x4 in. The banners are also a cute addition to this layout.
I hope you enjoy this sketch and decide to use it, please comment with a link to your page for us to compliment your work.

  Design Team: Happy Birthday Card

Pin It
 Hello, 
This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you my latest creating for Connie Can Crop.

I created this very simple card after printing and fussy cutting an image page from our sponsor, CraftsUprint, from their free files vault.



I pop-up the flowers and added some shimmer with Wink of Stella markers and brushes.






I couldn't believe how easy this card was to make. I love those files, they are so versatile and cute.
Just perfect for my Mom's present.

And don't forget to check out the this month's challenge!!

  YouTube Tuesday -Selling through CraftsUPrint

Pin It


Hi folks!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards sharing another YouTube video.  What did we ever do before YouTube?

In the last YouTube video, we shared a tutorial from one of the many designers on CraftsUPrint, our sponsor this month.   

Today, I wanted to share with you an opportunity CUP provides for crafters to sell their digital designs, cut files and finished products with no selling fee—you keep 100% of the sale.  But I’ll let the video tell you more about it:


Many of us have toyed with the idea of selling our handcrafted items, but have been a bit confused over how to go about it, where to sell your items and how much to ask for them.  Most outlets have listing fees, table fees, percentage of sales fees and it makes one wonder if it's really worth it.  

If that describes you and you ever wanted to experiment with selling your work, why not start here and learn the ropes without it costing you a dime.

Don't forget our sketch challenge this month.  One lucky winner, picked at random, will receive a digital CD from CraftsUPrint.  Here's the sketch and here's where you can link your entree.  Plus we will pick our three favorites and you get a badge for your blog or social media...plus bragging rights.


 You have until August 31st at 11:59 pm PST to enter, so get into that craft space and create something!
