Coffee & Friends

Coffee and Friends-Front-WM_ocm2018

I really enjoyed making the cupcake pop-up card so I decided to give it another go.  This time my theme was friendship and I found the cutest image on google.  Did you know that just because an image is on google that does not mean it’s free to use?  It may not seem like a big deal to you, but, as a designer, I really struggle with the fact that many people think google is a free for all.  It’s not.  Luckily, there is a way to make sure you are using an image that you have permission to use by filtering google so that it only shows you images that are free to use.  By doing this you don’t risk infringing on someone’s copyright.  It’s quite easy.


Just type what you are looking for in the google search bar (make sure IMAGES is selected) and then you can select TOOLS and choose the usage rights you desire.  Since I knew that I would not be selling this card, I choose “labeled for noncommercial reuse”.  The image I am using today can be found HERE.
