View Full Version : Another question on what can and cannot be shared.
01-03-2007, 01:26 PM
I have a file that I traced from a page in a card making mag. It gives a template for the stocking but I traced in the poinsettas from the picture of the finished card. The poinsettas were made from cutting apart patterned paper. In my file I have the stockingl, cuff and poinsettas. If I reference where this came from can I share it? What about anything else that I might have traced from a magazine or book?

I have traced and posted patterns like that from the magazine, giving full credit in the post to the magazine, and the issue. This has only been if they have included the actual pattern...and most of these patterns, you will find, are very simple shapes that could have come from anywhere, but it's still appropriate to give credit.

Great! I'm off to post this file...
Hello to all,
I am still a bit confussed. I saw a scroll saw magazine at my brother in laws house and from it I traced the most beautiful angel. I spent hours hand tracing her in my wishblade program. I want to share her. I don't have the magazine so I can't give the credit to the original artist. I do remember the caption on the pattern said free to use 10 times. I altered only the hanger of the piece. I was going to use her as the front of next years Christmas card. She is a child angel and the whole thing is lattice work. I cut her in hunter green and overlayed her on matt gold cardstock. I don't wish to insult the artist or do anything illegal. Is the answer When in doubt ... don't do it? Any advice people? Thanks in advance.

Definitely, when in doubt, don't share! From a book lik that, which gives explicit guidelines on the number of times it can be used, then I would say, sharing in this format would not be considered as acceptable in those terms.
However, you can certainly share a picture of your cut project, and tell people the name of the book and where they can get it!

Hi Lysa --
I have seen many scroll saw pattern books, especially older ones, that were made for just this purpose... to copy, cut, draw and create whatever you want to from their pattern. They sold the pattern for the buyer to do with it what they want. So, I have some nice older scroll saw pattern books that dictate no set limitations on the uses of their patterns. When we bought the book, we bought the right to use the patterns however we want. It is kind of neat -- I actually told my husband today that my Klik n Kut is a glorified and computerized Scroll Saw (which I have and is very rusty!). :) If you come across some of these pattern books, they are really fun! Check out yard sales and Grandpa's, Dad's or Hubby's woodshop.

Lysa, your child angel sounds like exactly what I've been looking for!! Do you remember the name of the magazine.......or what month it was??
Hi Debbie And Annie,
I am sorry for the time it has taken to get back to you both. I have been so busy at work that I was logging on only to check the bingo word and get the birthday download. But here is the scoop on the magazine. The name of the mag is scrollsaw woodworking and crafts. Hoilday 06 issue #25. The angel is on page 76. the artist is John Nelson. I have to tell you I hung her in my cubicle at work and people passing by stop to comment on her. I spent so much time on her that she feel like she is mine but, sadly she isn't. The publisher of this magazine is foxchapel publishing. Their. website is www.scrollsawer.com. I so wish I could share her she is so pretty. I think while I am on line I will check out the website myself. and just so you know my scroll saw is also in garage gathering dust and getting rusty.

Thanks Lysa -- some neat patterns on this site -- free PDF files to copy.
Can you share a photo of your angel??? I know how you feel, I'm a Lasting Impressions Vendor and I am making some of their patterns into KNK patterns. I have an inquiry in at the company for their permission to sell or share them (since they are used for a different purpose than embossing).

I also don't quite understand what we can share. I made a title for "Animal Kingdom' but didn't know if it can be shared. Please let me know. It's simple, but nice for a title. Thanks.
Yes debbie I will post a pic but please give me to the weekend to get to it. I am just walking trough the door from work and its after 10 pm. ughhhhh, I tell my husband all the time that I am moving to an island so I can hear the ocean and craft all day long!
and to ksgreene yes you can share your title. Type your message and then hit the additional options button below and then we can all enjoy seeing your creation. Shirley taught me that and I was so happy to share something I made. It made me happy to share because I learned so much from this forum.
Have a great night everyone
Here is the picture of the angel. I tried to take a picture of the one on the gold background but the gold was to reflective, so I mounted one on white. I hope you like her.
I hope this works. I had to reduce the file size
