    Hi there,

    I bought your Worn Photo Overlays, but I do not know how to use them….pleeeease can you help me!!

    Thanks so much

    Good morning, Manuela…or perhaps good afternoon, your time.

    My name is Connie Jagodzinski. Friends loved the bridal and vintage pictures I created for them and suggested I start my own company. So I did. I named it Scrapbook Whimsy (working on website).

    Of course, the elements and kits bought on Scrapbookflair and scrapbookdesigns and scrappity-doo-dah were for personal use. Now I must acquire commercial permission from the wonderful designers.

    I love your work for vintage photos and respectfully request permission to use them in creating bridal and scrapbook albums for my clients. It is not a slap-em-in and sell them business. I labor over each photo, crafting the elements to suit each individual and make it unique. Some I truly love and will use again, in all honesty. So I need a commercial license.

    You may see some of my work in my home gallery at I don’t remember if I go by Conniejago or Either way, you are welcome to check them out. I love EmKa and Flergs and Ztampf! for their clean lines and soft colors. Everytime I look for vintage fixings, your name is on it. So I have a list of 16 kits and masks and overlays I would like to purchase as quickly as possible, but I’m not investing the money if it isn’t legal for me to charge my clients.

    Please get back to me soon. My fingers are itching to use your beautiful work to delight my friends and clients.

    Warm regards,
    Connie Jagodzinski

    Hi Manu, First I would like to thank you for you alsome work. I love old vintage grung anything. I just purchased the Worn Overlays II, cant wait to work with it. When opening the kit one folder opened fine, but the other one didn’t open where I can see what the page looks like without clicking on it so it will open in Windows Photo Viewer. The one folder I can see the page right there in the folder. What do I need to do to make the other folder where I can see the page without going through Windows photo Viewer?
    Thanksso much

    Thank you

    Hello, I just signed up for your newsletter and was hoping to down load one of the free items for newsletter subscribers. I was going to purchase your New Home kit but also wanted the free New Home add-on with the picture frame and window. The link is not working, Can you help with this problem?

    Thank You,


  6. Vicki

    Manu, I am so in love with your work! I own almost everything and get so much inspiration from you and your CT girlies. I look forward to the newsletter each week and am awaiting your new collection. Thank you for all that you do…..


  7. Manu Post author

    Oh Vicki, thank you so very much for your kind words, I’m so glad you like my designs. I so much appreciate your comment. I’m so happy that we (my girls and myself) can give some inspiration. I do not have a huge CT, but the girls are awesome. I don’t want to overwhelm the blog visitors, newsletter readers … with thousands and thousand of pages. Thanks a lot for your kind words 😉 xxx

    Manuela, thank you so much for all the beautiful papers and elements. They are so much fun to work with and produce lovely vintage scrapbook pages – I love working with them.

    I am having a problem, I am not receiving your newsletters any more. Would you be able to check into that. Thanks so much.

  9. Manu

    Hey Reni, thank you very much from your kind words.
    I’ll try tofind out where the problem with the newsletter delivery is and email you.

    Manuela, Thank you for all the hours of creative pleasure your kits have given me. I find myself going to them over and over again, and find they are appropriate for any occasion–from scrapbooking family events to cards to holiday hybrid projects. Keep up the good work, and thank you for sharing your creative genius with us.

  11. Debbie Viney

    I find your kits to be a creative work of love. I found you in a search for kits of Lake cottages, but unfortunately the one that I fell in love with of yours is no longer available, “Summer at the Lake”. Would there be any opportunity to purchase this in the future? Our family Lake Cottage is being sold after over 80 years in our family and I would love to use your Summer Lake Bundle in our memory book for my family members. Thank you for your time and your wonderful creative talent.

  12. Manu Post author

    Debbie, thank you very much for your kind words.
    The Summer At The Lake Collection is retired only a few weeks back, but I made it for you for a short time available. It’s hidden in store, so not for the public visible – only thru the direct link here:

    This collection was a request. The family spends in summer a lot of time at the cottage, which is located at a lake in a forest in Canada. Unfortunately she only found kits from the ocean, with seashells. starfishes and so on which isn’t of course the same – so I thought why not making a summer kit about a Lake, with conifer trees and so on.

    I hope it will help ypu in creating the memory book for your family members.

    I have tried to download one of your Christmas Freebies from your website without success. I click on the link but I have no idea where it downloads it to. I would like to purchase some of your items but I’m hesitant to do this online. Do you have a toll free number where I can call and pay over the phone?

    Thanks so much!

  16. Manu

  21. Cherril

    Hi Manuela. I am always on the lookout for “filler” flowers or in other words, groups of smaller flowers that will fit in nicely with groups of other flowers. Example – babybreath, tiny wild daisy, buttercups etc. Just putting a wee hint out your direction as you know, your kits are my favs….Keep up the great inspiration in your kits…Love em.

  22. Manu

    Hey Cherril, thanks so much for your message.
    I’ll defintely take your wee hint … 🙂
    Can’t wait for spring when everything starts to grow up.
    Thanks a lot.

  23. Sheila Pearson

    Hi Manuela,
    Thank you so much for your emails and for giving me such lovely freebies. I open your emails before others as I love to see what you have new. I have been looking for seaside pictures and your Vintage Summer was just what I needed. I am completely new to scrapbooking, I am a greetings card maker, but I would like to make a small memento for my friend. Her mother is 98 years old, and we go away to Bexhill on Sea every year at the same time as they do, so the pictures I have taken of them I will use with your super Vintage Summer. I bought the whole set. Thank you so much, best wishes, Sheila

  24. Nancy

    Hello Manuela,
    I am wondering if you can tell me how to use your masks which are very beautiful. I drag them onto my scrapbook page but they still show up as black and the picture will not go into the mask. How can I make this work so my pages will be lovely?

  25. Sheila Pearson

    Thank you so much for all the inspiration and for your generous gifts of freebies from your talented contributors.

    I am so grateful and love the ideas and use of images.

    Best wishes to all,

  26. Manu Post author

    Thank you so much, Sheila.
    I appreciate your kind words and
    I’m glad that you can use the
    ideas and inspirations.

    Scrapbooking really is a lot of fun,
    helps to relax and to remember all those
    great moments and we can capture our wonderful
    photos and memories forever in the most beautiful

  27. Nancy Cashwell

    I was not scrap booking in 2010 and I would love two get the Vintage Farm quick page from you.I just love all of your ideal you have

  28. Virginia

    Thank you for all your beautiful gifts…..I love your work and designs.
    But Halloween is my favorite time of the year….I think all the brilliant colors and
    silly characters make me so HAPPY.
    Your new Halloween kit looks SOoooo Fantastic…thank you for the chance to get a free

  29. judy ware

    Hello, and thank you for your beautiful kits and Freebies you offer.I could not get the last quick page from any of the three downloads you offered. The whole page did not show up and there was no buttons to click on. Thank you anyway.

  30. Kathi

    I would like to take a look at my most recent purchase logs. I think I bought something (Every Little Moment Kit) and being the space-cadet that I am, I didn’t download the zip files. Could you check that out for me? Thank you so much
    Kathi Martens

    1. Manu Post author

      Hi Kathi, I don’t have a Kit called Every little moment, it’s from a different designer I guess, so it’s better to contact customer service directly and you’ll get the quickest help. I am sorry but I’m not able to look for your downloads. Thanks so much, Manu

  31. Inmaculada

    I really love your work and designs. Yesterday I bought the page Kit “Collection Of Moments” and I am wondering if you can tell me where can I find the resources you show in the examples, specifically in the photo which appears ” camping hiking, fishing swimming.
    Thank you so much. Inmaculada

    1. Manu Post author

      Hi Inmaculada, thank you very much for your nice and kind words … I’m really so glad you like my designs.

      Sorry for getting back a bit late to youz – was on a short vacation.

      The sample page you are talking about was created by Janet (one of my amazing CT girls) and I love her camping, hiking, fishing, swimming page so very much too.
      I know she used a tutorial which is offerwed at … but I can’t say exactely where you can find it. I’ll ask Janet if she has more info about, okay?
      Will be back to you with hopefully good news.


    Good morning:

    I really love your work and designs. I want to know where can I find the resources to make the page you show in “Collection Of Moments ” and specifically in the example I sent in this mail to you. I bought the kit but I would like to make a similar page.
    Thank you very much

  33. PatriciaKay

    I got my newsletter today telling all about your new Catch A Wave creations and immediately went to Scrapbook Graphics and purchased the Bundle. You are a beautiful Designer and I love everything you create. May God in heaven bless you abundantly for all your hard work that you share with all of us digital Scrappers! Thank you!!

    1. Manu Post author

      Wow … Patricia, thank you so much. I’m so glad you like the Catch Of Wave and I am so thankful for your nice and kind words. These mean a lot to me – really. Thank you!

    I just purchased your kit fight night………it show a spiderweb in the preview…….but I can’t find it in the kit………please reply………thanks!

  38. Hazel

    Hi, I just received my newsletter with your beautiful snowfun being shown. I am not sure why, with about the last three postings where your samples are shown, I have been unable to download any of your work. It shows that it is downloading, but the numbers of time for downloads is whacky. It may start out showing one time either in hours or minutes and it just keeps jumping back and forth and goes on forever. I have eventually gone to check to see if it is doing anything where I put all my downloads, and it shows that it is downloading, but I have run across this before on things I downloaded and when I go to open them they are unopenable.
    So, I just cancel that download and cancel the download. I did advise you of this on one of the first ones that did that, but to my knowledge I don’t think I ever received a reply, but it was the holidays and I know that everything was hectic. I love your work and have in the past, purchased some of your items. I do hope that this can be figured out to see if it is on your end or on mine. I have not had any problems downloading anything else. I really am sorry that I cannot get to your free samples, and I have not gone in to order anything until I can figure out what the problem is. I do hope that it is fixable because your stuff is beautiful.

    1. Manu Post author

      Hi Hazel,
      I’m so sorry for the trouble with the downloads. I’ll email you privately with an alternate link to download all that you missed.

  39. Marie Williams

    Dear One: I have scolded myself about buying so many digital scrap kits (not to mention the 1000s of free ones I have) but I still follow you. I got behind in my life and have not been on the computer very much and so I have missed quite a few of your lovely quick pages – is there somewhere where I might download the ones I have missed from previous months? I have to take care of my three geriatric bears: 91, 84, 81 father husband mother. You work is my favorite (as you can see by how many of your kits I’ve purchased over these years) and I just drool over every one. Thank you in advance for your time and attention. Marie

    1. Manu Post author

      Dear Marie, thank you so much for your wonderful comment and I’m so glad to hear from you 🙂
      I sure have a link for you where you can grab everything you missed.
      I’ll email the link to you directly.
      Thanks so much!
      – Manu

  40. Joyce Swaim

    Hi. I’m not sure what happened but I never got the newsletter on Feb 14th. so I never got the free min kit.
    I am so sad.
    I hope maybe somehow I can still get it?
    Just in case it is possible my email has gotten lost with you I have signed up again.
    Thanks and hugs.

  41. MRS R.B

    HI MANU!

    1. Manu

      Wow, thank you so very much.
      This really means a lot to me and I’m so happy you like my designs.
      Have a lot of fun playing with the stuff and feel free to show me your work 🙂
      Thank you so much!

  42. chitra david

    Hi Manu,
    Thank you for your lovely gifts for signing up for your newsletter. You are a generous person. I also thank you for the tutorial. I use MS PowerPoint in creating some of my LOs…I would like to create something with the free gift you had sent; how do I let you see it? All my work is only for personal enjoyment, of family, friends and colleagues. What should I do to post any work I create with your stuff? Does your website have a gallery for guests? I would love to get your feedback on my work

    1. Manu Post author

      Thank you so much, Chitra!
      I’m really very happy you like my designs.
      I emailed you about showing your work 🙂
      Thanks so much.

  43. Gail

    Hi There

    I subscribe to your newsletters but cannot open your free mini kits at work/ I only have a work email.

    Can you please help.

    I bought the attic memorabilia kit and the free min kit would go nicely with it.

    Thanks Gail

    1. Manu Post author

      Hi Gail, I’ll email you the link!

      Oh … wait. I emailed you the link but then, it is your work email, right?
      And then you again get it on work and can’t open it, right?
      How can I send you the link then?
      Maybe through a private message in a forum? Scrapbookgraphics?
      If so I would need your username there. Mine is Manu.

  44. Peggy

    Hi – I have signed up for you newsletter, but do not seem to be getting them. Was really hoping to be able to download a couple of the freebies and am not able to, please help.
    I have purchased a few of your sets and really love your work.
    Thank you

    1. Manu Post author

      Hi Peggy, I sent you an email.
      in gmail it is a bit tricky to find the newsletters since they changed the face of the inboxes. On top you see different tabs and newsletters could be find in the promotions tab. If you click it you should see them in there. Also already sent you a screenshot to show you.
      Thank you!

  45. abbynormal

    Sometime back (time escapes me), you had an item that was of great interest to me. It must have been some type of template, which I did not know how to use at the time. It was kind of “rolled’ at the top and you had place a scenic photo on it that took the form of that background/template. I have looked in your store at digichick and cannot find it. I don’t think it is the ripped paper templates. The sides were smudged I believe, but I don’t remember the tears at the top. This may have been an item that you stuck in your vault. Could you get back with me? Hopefully you remember the item in question and can help me with this. Thank you so much! By the way, you and your designers do such wonderful work—I love it!!

    1. abbynormal

      Hey Manu, I think I found the posting. it was a tutorial that was posted in 2015 on “curled paper”. Do you still have the psd version of that ???template??? or whatever the png was.
