HELP!

I am feeling so lost right now. I want to buy graphics/clip art software so I can start making my own activities and sheets for TpT. Problem is, I don't know which one to buy! I've been searching and reading reviews for the past 2 hours and I'm still feeling unsure.


Any suggestions? Advice? What do you all use to make your adorable units and activities?


Thanks for the help!

My favorite seller is KPM Doodles. I think she is also a teacher, if I remember correctly! Her sets are in color and black and white AND you can use them for commerical use (IE Teachers Pay Teachers). Here is a link to her Teachers Notebook store:

I find her stuff is priced VERY reasonably!

Here is an example of one of my products that uses her forest friends clip art set (Too cute!)

I love KPM Doodles! I got most of my stuff from her.

There's also DJ Inkers and Scrappin' Doodles.

I use Scrappin Doddles you have to buy a license to sell the products, just so scrappy - you also need a license, KPM doddles and JW Illustrations are also great and do not require a license at all. Hope that helps,

Scrappin' Doodles is my fav clipart and I love Digital bakeshop on etsy. She has a deal of buy 2 get 2 free buy 4 get 4 free and so on up as high as you want to buy. I also use lettering delights for alphabets. DJ Inkers is still my go to for fonts though! I am wanting to start making stuff too, so I just bought some stuff last weekend. I'm working on a Soil science unit right now! Hope this helps :)

I also like KPM Doodles and Scrappin Doodles, the benefit of KPM is no license needed, same for the The Digital Bake Shoppe. all great options!

I use KPM Doodles and Scrappin' Doodles and hope to add more. If you do not give items with Scrappin' Doddles away, you don't need a license. My digital scrapbook paper for borders is from an etsy seller. Just read the terms of use carefully, you can use most clip art on Etsy for your own personal commercial use.

I spent this afternoon doing the exact same thing. It is a little overwhelming. I think that I have decided to buy a couple things from kmp doodles. She had buy 2 get one free. Even though you need to buy a license from scrapin doodle it wasn't too expensive. I will probably do that next.

I use scrappin' doodles too - I purchased the cheapest license {I think it was 10 dollars} which allows me to give them away as freebies {pdf} but can't sell them.

Girl,
I really think we are living parallel lives. First, we share the same design and this blog post was on my next "to do" blog ideas. Thank you SOOOO much for putting this request out there. Everyone that responded: THANK YOU! I have been wanting to do the same thing to try to create wonderful things to add. So, thanks again, Tanya, for blogging about this!

If you're wanting to sell, some good sites that are pretty reasonable are:
Scrappin Doodles (no license needed to sell)
and the below two as long as you steer clear of Cheryl Seslar you can use their graphics without a license:
Digi Web Studio (and you can do an occasional freebie for promotion)
Whimsy Doodle Graphics

If you're wanting just freebies DJ Inkers is great

If you're wanting to use for selling OR freebies check out:
Scrapping Goodies
Digi Scrap Kits

There's lots of stuff in ETSY, and each artist has their own terms of use. I suggest emailing them directly if you aren't sure what their Terms are.

I actually have my clip art shop! You can check it out here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/glauren5

I'm still just starting out, but you can use it for whatever as long as it's secure and you mention my shop in your credits. =)

I'm your newest follower!! I'm excited to be here :)

I love KPM doodles as well as Scrappin' Doodles. DJ Inkers doesn't allow you to resell items using their clip art. So if you use them it has to be just for FREEBIES :)
