Did you know that Scrap Girls gives away seven digital scrapbooking freebies every week?! That’s right – we give away one a day, Monday through Saturday, and a bonus one in the Round-Up newsletter on Tuesday. That’s more than 380 free downloads each year!
(And around December every year, we get really out of control and have been known to give away double freebies!)
In case you’ve been missing out, this quick tutorial will show you how to download your daily freebie. Why? Because free is good!
First, where are the freebies located? Scroll through each daily newsletter to the bottom and look for the “Today’s Freebie” header.
With some browsers, the bottom part of the newsletter may be cut off. So if you’re not seeing the daily freebie, then click on the link in the upper right-hand corner to view the online version.
Second, once you’ve located the freebie, how do you download it? The first thing you will do is either click on the picture of the freebie (click on the image of the paper, embellishment, or word art, etc.) or click on the term Designer Freebie under the photo.
You will then be directed to the download page in the Scrap Girls store. Now keep in mind, our freebies are only available for a couple of newsletter cycles. We do this to keep fresh, new freebies in the store at all times.
If you click on the freebie and you find yourself redirected to the main page of the Boutique, then that means the freebie you’re looking for has been retired and is no longer available.
If you are directed to the product page*, though, simply scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the Download button.
* What’s a product page? The product page shows samples of the digital scrapbooking product, with sample layouts and descriptive text. There will be a Freebie Product Download Links header right above the Download buttons.
If you are only downloading the freebie and not purchasing any products, don’t click “Add to Basket” and try to check out of the store with these items because there will be a one-cent charge ($.01) on your credit card/Pay Pal account. Instead, you can avoid this charge by using the Download button on the bottom of each freebie product page.
Finally, another way to access the freebie is through the Boutique. This is a really simple way, especially if you’ve gotten behind on reading your newsletters because you can see exactly what is still available. From the category list in the Boutique, click on Freebies, which is the very last category in the drop-down list.
Then you will be redirected to a page that has all the current freebies displayed, including the freebies which we make available year-round (Refresh Collection, two eBooks, and two ScrapSimple Tools for PSP users). Just click on the photo of the freebie you want to download, then when the new product page opens, scroll down to the bottom and click on Download, as described above.
I hope this helps explain how to download our daily freebies. If you have any questions, just email us at email@example.com. We’ll be more than happy to answer your questions!
