Exhibit B- My Templates:
You can see that the glass effect is the exact same
on her frames & on my preview.
Also note that my preview says Commercial Use.
It does NOT say CU4CU which is how Anna
was using them. And my TOU in the zipfile say
they're for CU for kits ONLY.
For her frames she also used my CU glitter sheets.
Those I'm not too anal about how they're used,
as long as no one resells them or claims them as theirs.
How did I know Anna had these frames?
Here's a screen shot from my CT group & Anna's
first set of frames she'd made with my templates &
glitter sheets/ styles:
The discussion itself:
And more of that discussion on her frames
in my group:
At the time, she'd made this set free
for Personal Use only-
the way they were supposed
to be used (or add them to PU kits).
...And if you were to click on the link to the frames
on my blog above, she even commented on the post. ;)
Since I saw those frames, my curiosity was piqued.
So I went to the store & was looking through
her items in the store to see if she was selling
more of my CU freebies.
I did not expect to come across a kit
where she ripped an element from my kit.
This is the kit I saw
never mind she also used my colour palette:
Exhibit C- Anna's kit: Love Meow:
Look at the milk bottle on the right.
Look closely at the details of it-
the glass effect, the text,
even the placement of that text.
Now, last year, I made this kit:
Now, the bottle doesn't show in my preview,
but it IS in my kit:
I'm going to trust this not to be stolen,
since this is posted for comparisons ONLY.
Here's the bottle- Exhibit D:
At one time I was a subscriber to Sugarbutt's old blog.
She regularly had limited-time freebies on her blog.
A Carnival-themed set was posted & I downloaded it.
At the time, her items were CU/CU4CU/PU, etc.
This set had a 'cluster' of these bottle in it,
as I'll show you in one of folders I have of her items
(they're the red ones btw):
When I made my Kurious Kitty kit, I extracted one
of those bottles from the rest. I then desaturated it
& made it white. Then I added a glass effect on it.
Last, added my text to make it look like a milk bottle
before saving it in the kit. In other words, I modified it.
And if you see in the above pic, I made the extracted
bottle into a image file for my own future use,
since I'm not a fan of tubing anything. LOL
So how did Anna get the same exact bottle
with the same exact glass effect & text?
She'd made a tutorial with my kit last Dec.,
so she had the kit. Her tutorial is here.
And on a side note, when I brought this up
to the store owner, I gave her my bottle file.
She tried to 'replicate' it the best she could
& it wasn't exact like Anna's is.
Proof that Anna clearly stole the bottle from my kit.
Also, you can also see these CT tags
by one of Anna's CT girls that tagged her kit.
This gives you a better view of that bottle:
Now, I have more stuff to post concerning
Anna, but I don't want this post to be so long.
Keep an eye on my blog because another post
will be coming soon. ;)
But for now, as promised, here's the freebie kit
for you. The kit was made for Anna as a gift.
I hope you all can at least enjoy it.
I was going to change the name of the kit,
but decided not to. I'd rather people be able to
associate this kit with a thief & remember not to trust her.
You can grab this kit here:
Thank you for reading. =)
Enjoy the kit & please come back for
part two about this thief.
