Of course, we love it when you do use our designer's products here at Scrap Girls, but you are welcome to use products that you have from others as well as long as you give credit to them when you post your layout. And we'd love to see the products you've designed yourself - that's so cool!
Have you downloaded the freebie in the boutique yet, The Narrative Collection? That would be a good one with which to start if you haven't bought any Scrap Girl Products yet.
You will find it A Narrative Collection here!
Hope to see some of your layouts soon!
