FAQ / TERMS OF USE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1. Can I return or exchange a digital product I purchased?

All Kellybell Designs’ products are digital merchandise and available for immediate download after purchase. They are not refundable or exchangeable. I do not issue refunds or credits. Please be sure to check your scrapping stash to avoid any duplicate purchases. Also, some items in the store have been previously offered as Facebook Freebies or Mousescrappers Participation Prizes. It is your responsibility to check your product inventory prior to making a purchase.

2. How long do I have to download my purchases?

Download links are active for 7 days or 5 download attempts, whichever comes first. Please download your files, unzip them, and check your purchases within this time limit. It is highly recommended to make the appropriate backups. For security purposes, the links expire after that time frame and are not available for downloading.

3. How do I get links reset if they’ve expired?

If you are not able to download your products in the given time frame, you have 30 days from the purchase date to request an order reset. Send an email with the title “30-Day Order Reset” to kellybell.designs@gmail.com and include your order number to expedite the reset process. Within the 30 day window, you may request 1 reset per order for free. Requests for resetting links multiple times or for orders older than 30 days will be charged an administrative reset fee.

4. What happens after 30 days or if my hard drive crashed. Can I get some older orders reset?

Occasionally technical difficulties may make your digital files inaccessible. It’s critical to backup your files on a regular basis onto an external hard drive or online storage service, or burn them to a CD or DVD. After the initial 30 day window to download your files has expired, if you would like your order download links reset, there is a $20 reset fee. Send an email to kellybell.designs@gmail.com with “Fee Based Order Reset” in the subject line, please include your order number to expedite your request. Please allow up to 72 hours for order reset requests to be processed. You will be sent a Reset Fee Paypal invoice. Once this fee has been paid, the links will be re-activated. Orders purchased before February 1st, 2012 cannot be reset (2/1/2012 was the opening date of my new store and order system).

5. Can I share these digital files with my friends or create freebies with them for my blog?

All of my digital products are for personal use only. They may not be shared with friends or distributed in any way (even if they were downloaded for free). Please direct your friends directly to my website where they can download or purchase items for themselves. Sharing/redistributing/selling these files to others is piracy and is ILLEGAL.

  1. Hi Kelly! I love your stuff and wanted to order as we have just returned from Disneyworld. My problem is that I do not have a Paypal account and had wanted to pay strictly by Credit card and don’t see that option. I know you are on holidays but I hope we can sort this before the sale is over. I will look into Paypal if necessary.
    Thanks, Kim Meyerman

    • I’m sorry Kim but as of right now PayPal is the only option for purchasing kits for me. It protects both the buyer and the seller and it’s the most convenient.

  2. Hello, I was wondering if your new “That Covers It Templates” will work for Story Book Creator. I do not see that you mention “page” as a style type. Please let me know because I want to buy them if I can use them in Story Book. thanks

  3. Hi! I stumbled onto your site and your pages look incredible! We just got back from Disneyworld and I wanted to make a book through Shutterfly. If I purchase your products, is it possible to use them to make my book but print on Shutterfly somehow? Thanks

    • Hi Kimberly!
      Thank you for your kind words on the blog!
      You can most certainly use my products to make a book of pages to upload to Shutterfly to print!!
      You just upload your pages and arrange them into your desired order and print!
      Happy Scrapping!
      ♥ Kelly

  4. I am new to digital scrapbooking, and wanted to know if I could use your files in Paint Shop Pro x6 Ultimate? I have never used the program (just got it) and wanted to get items to use in the program. Also, I want to buy a lot of files – how can I find out how large they are before downloading? Thanks!

    • I’m not familiar with Paint Shop Pro x6 Ultimate, but as long as you can open and edit .png files and .jpeg files you will be able to use all my kits. I did a tiny bit of research on that program and found this video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3lhJzZQnCY It looks like Paint Shop Pro X6 is great for scrapbooking.

      As for how large the zip files are before you purchase them, I don’t have exact figures on the size of each download. I suppose it all depends on the size of the kit but I do separate each kit into 3 downloads to keep the zips at manageable downloads.

  5. Hello Kelly I am new to digital scrapbooking . We are returning from that Magical Place and I was going to do a paper scrapbook but I have decided to do digital instead. What software do you suggest?

  6. Hi, Although I do LOVE digital scrapbooking, I have not created my own pages from scratch as of yet. I tend to start books and not always finish them. We just got back from a Disney vacation and my goal is to create a book in a week max. So, I thought I’d buy a few pages and embellishments to use with Shutterfly pages. Do you know if your embellishments can be uploaded directly to Shutterfly? Are they jpeg files? Thanks!

  7. Hi Kelly, I’m having trouble logging onto your site. Apparently, I changed my password and forgot it. I did press the “forgot password” link but nothing has been sent for a reset. If you could check that, I’d appreciate it,
    Thank-you,
    Julie

  8. I love all of your work! I was wondering if these files be imported into my Silhouette program and print/cut or can they only be opened with photoshop?

    • Hi Kristi,
      All of my products are either .png form (the elements) or .jpeg form (the papers) so as long as the program supports those forms yes you should be able to use them.

  9. Hi;
    I am totally new to digital scrapbooking and love your pages. We are getting ready to head out for our first Disney experience so I have a feeling I’ll be back to shop soon. Just wondering if your products can be uploaded to “photo book Canada” programs…this what I have used in the past to make photo books. Thanks

    • Hi Amy!
      I have on experience with “photo book Canada” programs, but all of my products are either .png form or .jpeg form so as long as the software supports those forms yes you should be able to use my products with it.

  10. Have you had anyone use your stuff with Panstoria Artisan? I’m just wondering if the two are compatible. Thanks!

  11. I thought the 50% off sale was through 9/25; however, I just logged on at 3:30 am on 9/25 and the sale prices are GONE…help!!!
