FAQ’s:

1. May I use your product to create a t-shirt or an album or a hybrid creation as a gift for my friend / child / loved one?

Yes, by all means! It would be an honor for me if you would use my creations for such a precious purpose.

2. May I use your product to create any item that I will be earning from?

Nope. You would need a commercial-use license to do that.

3. May I use your product to create any item that will be used for fund-raising for someone other beneficiary?

Fund-raising implies profit, even if it doesn’t go directly to you. I would need to know the details regarding this, and I would be deciding this on a case-to-case basis, so please email me before you use it for this purpose.

4. May I use your items to create a design for my own blog or a friend’s blog? I will not be gaining any profit from it.

Yes, as long as the above conditions stated in my Terms of Use are met.

5. The site where I want to upload my layout / hybrid creation does not allow links to other stores. How do I satisfy that stipulation in your Terms of Use?

I understand if you are unable to provide active links. Do provide credit as specified in my Terms of Use as well as the address of my blog (i.e., “Product X” by Liv Esteban / liv.edesigns at livesteban.com).

6. Will you be coming up with any products with a Commercial-Use license in the future?

Yes, that is my plan, although at this moment all my products are strictly for personal use only. When I do come up with CU products, it will be clearly indicated on my product preview. Additionally, I will update the Terms of Use in the product download and here on my blog. The Commercial-Use license will apply strictly to the single product that it comes with.

7. My question is not covered in your FAQ section. What do I do now?

Please feel most welcome to email me or comment on this page in my blog. I promise to get back to you ASAP.

    I am using your HOlidays in Hand from the Jessica Sprague site. I’m confused a bit with the template. Do you have any examples of what Designs A, B, C, and D are supposed to look like? Thanks.

    Hi Liz,

    I came across your site and found that you share freebies of your creation. I’m currently creating a blog which will feature many of digital scrapbooking’s freebies and would love to include your blog on my list.

    I will basically put the picture of your freebie on my blog and include the download link back to your blog.

    Thanking you in advanced.

    Hi Liv,
    I’ve taken several classes over at Jessica’s playground, and have a few of your freebies from there; but I finally took the time to check your blog out and it’s awesome. I would love to snag your DID It Circle Template, but the link is no longer valid. Is there anyway I could get it? thanks much!

    I have 2 questions for you and I hope that you don’t get annoyed with me because I am late. I didn’t know how to reach you until I found your website. Beautiful!!! Intelligent!!! Anyway since you helped me in the course maybe you can help me now. I am doing the jen caputo templates and I did #2, the one in the sample video on how to use templates. The first one with the 3 curved pics, I cannot complete. My photos are flat. What is the trick to curve them to fit the mats in the templates. Question 2. Can you download the so sistah and other goodies from your site to a Mac. My kids got me this new and wonderful MacBook Pro a month ago for my 65th b’day but I cannot for the life of me get your freebies to open. Is there a trick to that too. Thanks. Deanna
