NO MORE PUBLIC DOWNLOAD LINKS!

I’m sorry to say that LilyBelle Scraps has been pirated soooo many times – a lot just lately!  I’m tired of the time it takes to resolve these issues.  I have decided not to post download links for my free designs and I will be removing all the present links.  It’s a shame because a few always spoil it for the many.  I’m sorry for those of you who have been so kind with your comments but as the saying goes … I’ve had enough.  I may be able to figure out a secure way to offer freebies – time will tell.

Will surely miss being able to use your link system to get your beautiful kits, but you must do what you must do. These darn spammers should get a life for themselves and do something useful for a change. I am sorry that you are having this problem and hope that it will resolve itself. Hugs.

I'm so sad that I won't be able to own anymore LilyBelle Scrap designs...but I totally understand. I hope you are able to find a better way, a secure way, to share what you create. Best of luck. I'll keep checking back....

I am so sorry that you have been forced to take this action. Why would people want to take credit for others' work. They are sure to be found out in the end.

Perhaps you could do some kind of newsletter where you offer a freebie, perhaps every couple of months. That way we could keep in touch with your work. Alternatively you could sell your work.

Oh, how horrible for you. It is so very sad that I say that I understand your pain and frustration and hope that one day you will be able to bring more beauty. Please take care.

I am new to LilyBelle and have looked forward to your freebies with GREAT anticipation. When I discovered your website,I was shocked at what you were doing for digital scrapbookers ... for free.

I just want you to know that I appreciate every single piece of paper and embellishment that you have given me. I have a beautiful, beautiful collection and I am very grateful.

myscrapbook says: Have always loved your designs they have been very much appreciated. Perhaps having to put in a password to access the offered freebie would be one way to stop the pirating.

I am very sorry to hear of all these piracy problems.

I love your designs and appreciate all the time you take to create and share with us.
I have scrapped many beautiful pages with your lovely designs.

Sorry to hear that you have stopped doing freebies because of these people that want to take your designs and others then claim them for their own. You do such beautiful kits and I appreciate very much every one that I have gotten of yours. My only suggestion would be the same as some of the others and that is either sell your kits or do a password for downloading. For selling them you might set up a store to buy them in but then you send the buyer the download link instead of making it available to everyone.
