About

An amazing creative outlet!

We love color! Living in Saskatchewan, Canada, our world is mostly white for half the year...so we painted the house to look like the homes we saw while traveling in Cuba and Guatemala, full of vibrant colors. Our sense of fun and love of color spills over into our designs, as does our love of vintage books (a few of our patterns feature antique illustrations from out-of-copyright books). Doodling and playing in Photoshop is relaxing for us, and we hope you enjoy our doodles as much as we've enjoyed creating them!

Additional policies and FAQs
TERMS OF USE (COMMERCIAL USE - CLIP ART & PAPER PACKS):

You MAY use this image for any personal use (that you do not sell). You can make as many copies as you need for your own use, including gift giving.

You MAY use this image for small business / light commercial use for print runs of under 5,000 physical items (T-shirts, throw pillows, jewelry, handbags, posters, etc). No link or credit is required. Please contact us for Extended License pricing if you wish to produce a larger print run. The image does not need to be modified if it is being used on a physical item, EXCEPT for printing out our patterns and selling as paper, and print-on-demand fabric. For the purposes of these terms, POD fabric can be treated as a digital item. We do not allow simply printing our patterns and selling as pages of paper.

You MAY use this image in other digital and mixed media designs that you sell fewer than 5,000 of, as long as the image is flattened (no layers) in such a way that this image cannot be easily isolated (as part of a flattened digital scrapbooking layout or paper, scrap for hire where the product is flattened, non-editable invitations, etc) . The image must be used as part of a composition, or modified in some significant manner*. This includes POD fabric - our designs can be used, but only as part of a composition, where our image is significantly modified, and does not constitute the majority of the new design.

You MAY use our design in a logo, as long as it is used as part of a larger composition.

You MAY use our design as a web background for personal use (one website, or up to three websites that are all owned / managed by family members from a single household). For the purpose of these Terms of Use, a personal website created by a professional is still considered 'personal use'. If you are professionally creating a website for a small business client, you may use our pattern for that client, but you must re-purchase the design if you wish to use it for a second small business client. If you would like to use the design for multiple clients, or as part of a website for a large corporation, please contact us to discuss extended licensing options.

You MAY use this item to create other digital items that you give away for free on your newsletter or website ("freebies"), as long as the image is used as part of a composition, comprises less than 50% of the new item, and the freebie item is flattened in such a way that our original work cannot be easily isolated from the new composition.

You MAY NOT use this image in any layered / editable digital items for sale.

You MAY NOT resell this (unmodified) image as a digital file, on its own or as part of a package.

You MAY NOT redistribute this (unmodified) image digitally for free, on a website or by sharing with friends.

* "modified in some significant manner" means using it in a composition, where our original item would typically not make up more than 50% of the new composition; however, that includes the creativity you use in coming up with the item(s) it is used in. For instance, if you use a Northern Whimsy pattern to fill in the background of your own, original, (flattened) printable invitation with other shapes, typography, etc, that would be fine, even if the pattern covers more than 50% of the surface area. Simply re-coloring a pattern for re-sale as a digital file, however, is not acceptable, and does not constitute a 'significant modification'.



TERMS OF USE - CU LAYERED TEMPLATES AND KIT DESIGN ELEMENTS

You MAY use this image for any personal use (that you do not sell).

You MAY use our layered element and paper pattern templates in digital scrapbooking kits, as long as the image is altered, then flattened (no layers) in such a way that this image cannot be easily isolated (typically flattened and saved as a JPEG or PNG). By 'altered', we mean adding your own patterns, styles, overlays, and such, so that the end result is significantly different from the original. For paper templates, simply re-coloring the template is not sufficient.

For non-layered element templates, you can include the element in your kit as-is, or simply re-colored to match your kit, as long as Northern Whimsy elements comprise only a portion of your kit (say, less than 25%), and that your kit is not simply a collection of similar items (say, buttons, or flowers) that are bundled together and re-sold.

You MAY use this item to create other digital items that you give away for free on your newsletter or website ("freebies"), as long as layered templates are modified and flattened, or in the case of isolated photographic elements, the element is included as part of a kit with other elements and papers (and not just a re-bundled package of similar items).

You MAY NOT use this image in any layered / editable digital items for sale.

You MAY NOT sell any kit created with our template for commercial use - they can be for PU / S4H / S4O only.

You MAY NOT sell, give away, or otherwise redistribute the unmodified template or image on its own, either on a website or by sharing with friends.

While credit is appreciated, it is not required.


If in doubt, please don't hesitate to ask. We would like to work with you to get you the license you need, even if you want to use our item for something that is not covered by the above terms.
