Credit to Paper Garden Projects is not required when using these CU products, but it is always appreciated!


  • Use Paper Garden Projects’ CU products/designs to create derivative digital scrapbook products (papers, elements, templates, etc.) provided that the final products/designs will be sold by you directly to consumers (i.e. never sold to a third-party company/vendor and then sold to consumers).
  • Incorporate these CU products/designs into your own original Personal Use (PU) projects.
  • Use Paper Garden Projects CU products/designs in Scrap For Hire (S4H)/Scrap For Others(S4O) projects, as long as the final result is delivered to the third party in a flattened (non-layered) format.
  • Incorporate these products into physical, hand crafted projects (such as greeting cards)  for resale directly to customers provided not more than 50 of any individual product component or image is used by the purchaser.  Hand crafted items must be sold by the purchaser of the product and cannot be sold to a third-party company/vendor and then sold to consumers.


  • Share these products/designs with anyone else.
  • Redistribute these products/designs in their original form (i.e. you may only use them to create derivative works). These products/designs are to be considered a design tool, rather than a final design product, and must be altered/recolored in some way before being sold to consumers.
  • Use these designs on anything other than scrapbook products/designs or limited numbers of physical, hand crafted products sold directly by the purchaser of the product.  You may not use these designs in website/blog design, commercial logos, fabric designs, ceramics, on-demand printable products, or anything that is printed and sold in bulk quantities.
  • Make copies of the files on any medium, whether electronic or physical, other than for the purpose of personal back-up (this includes–but is not limited to–copying these files to CDs, DVDs, hard drives, diskettes, etc.)
