Pirates Not Allowed! {DST Blog Train}

Welcome to my little corner of the world! If you haven't been here before, let me introduce myself. I am Katharyn, founder of Brine Design. I sell digital scrapbooking kits at Funky Playground Designs and Two Little Pixels.

I've only been selling kits since November 2010, but I have BIG plans on the horizon, heehee! I prefer to make and play with kits that have a traditional paper-like style. I usually scrap with my kits myself before I release them onto the unsuspecting public, because I want to know for sure that they are useful!

I scrap to record memories and document the little everyday happenings that go on in my cute little family. I don't ever want to mass-produce layouts or kits - especially if that means sacrificing my own scrapping time. I just enjoy scrapping first and foremost, and I like designing because I like sharing this brilliant craft with people from across the globe!

So here is a small kit I created for the April DST blog train - all about combating the terrible, unscrupulous digital pirates out there who rob me each and every day. Not only do they steal kits for themselves and proclaim them as their own, they also upload to kit-sharing sites and share them with strangers who pay them good money! Unfair? You betcha! Not only is it limiting the number of designers who want to continue designing because they are sick of spotting their designs under somebody else's name, it means more designers are hestitant to offer freebies and samples of their work because these freebies are usually the items that are pirated the most.

Here's my free kit to help out this cause:
Available for free for a limited time.

Now, if you're following the DST blog train, you would have arrived here from  Robyn Pali Designs. Your next stop is  Jen Maddocks Designs . For a full list of blog contributors, check out the DisgiShopTalk forum or my list at the end of this post.

If you'd like to see more of my kits and digital wares, visit my shops at Funky Playground Designs and Two Little Pixels.

Thanks for dropping by, and please take the time to leave a thank you in my comments - I LOVE getting your feedback!

Thanks for the free kit. I know I have seen torrent sites when searching for things. I pass them over for the real deal. Mean people suck.
