This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Jess Gerstner (

I want to share some information on how I operate my YouTube channel and website.

I participate in several affiliate programs. Using an affiliate program means that I receive a commission when a product is purchased through a link at my website or YouTube channel. There is NO additional cost to you. The money generated through these links are what helps support my videos and resources.

The affiliate programs I use include: Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Scrapbookdotcom, Create for Less, Joggles, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Impression Obsession, Pretty Pink Posh, Queen & Co, Tonic Studios, ScrapbookPal, Studio Katia, Therm O Web, Sizzix, Sunny Studios, Spellbinders, Kat Scrappiness and more.

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

I purchase most of my own supplies. I do receive some free product to work with and will always try to be clear in my posts when product was received for free or in exchange for design work. I do accept product or payment in exchange for design work, usually from companies that I am already familiar with and feel like they provide a quality product.

I am not on any design team. I have been on various design teams in the past. In general, I received product and/or other compensation from these companies in exchange for my work. I choose to work with companies that I feel from personal experience offer quality products. I will also accept guest design positions from companies that I am a fan of.

I strive always to share my honest opinion. However I will generally refrain from offering negative opinions. It has been my experience that crafters can get varying results from the same products and so I will focus on offering helpful suggestions and tips from my own experience.

I am not an expert or certified in any way. I am simply sharing my own personal experience. You are responsible for following all manufacturer safety guidelines when operating tools and creating craft projects. Some tools I use may be dangerous if used incorrectly and I do not represent any company directly so you are responsible for understanding any operating instructions and safety precautions.

I abide by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in being honesty about relationships I have with companies and opinions of products. However I recognize, the compensation I receive may influence my content, topics or posts. Any paid or sponsored content will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Any claim or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or service provider.

I would like to disclose the following past relationships. These are companies that may have had an impact on the content of this website. I was part of the Kat Scrappiness, Newton’s Nook Designs, and Create a Smile Stamps design teams.
