Help please!

After spending the last few months stalking other blogs and being inspired by all the wonderful ideas I've seen out there. I'm really wanting to start making somethings to sell on TPT or teachers' notebook. Or at least I think I do. But I have no idea how all this licensing stuff works out. So I thought I would put my questions out on my blog and see what others have to say about it.
What sites are the best to work with for fonts and clipart? I was looking at lettering delights and I like their stuff but I had a hard time figuring out their licensing information.
Does royalty free clipart mean that I can use it on stuff I'm going to sell and not worry about it? Microsoft's clipart is royalty free and that's what I am using right now with things. 
Is there a program that seems to work best for creating printables?
I am exploring this option mainly because I keep running out of money each month. I think I'm spending too much on school things. So if I was able to sell a few things to pay for all my school need, that would help me out a ton. I would love some input on what other people do.
On a side note, I'm super excited because I'm going to be featured on Kinder Kraziness tomorrow. And I'm only two more followers away from 50 and my first giveaway. A $10 gift card to Dollar Tree!

  2. Hey! I'm following you now :) The whole clip art issue is a bit of a hassle, but once you have some favorite artists and undertsand their poilicies, it's gravy! Personally I use a lot of stuff from Kristin at because she allows me to share my creations freely on my blog. If you pruchase a Scrappin' Doodles license you can also share freebies using their clip art, but I have a hard time with the idea of having to pay to give away my work lol. One of the biggest issues with a lot of artists is not letting you share freebies or not allowing you to sell stuff on multi-vendor sites like TPT. If in doubt, just email the artist and ask. They're usually pretty quick to let you know what you can and can't do!

    Anyways, glad that you started blogging, looking forward to reading more! I have a giveaway on my blog right now and the prize is a free blog design, come over and enter please!

  3. thanks so much for entering the giveaway! For clipart licenses, I just email the artist to make extra certain I understand the terms of use. They are always very friendly and quick to respond :)

  4. I always make sure I have the correct license to use when I create my stuff! Even though it is your creation, you made it with their graphics and you have to give credit to the artist. Just email each artist and they will let you know their terms. They are really very nice!
