DISCLOSURE

This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Jess Gerstner (hello@jesscrafts.com).

I wanted to share some information on how I operate my YouTube channel and blog.

I participate in several affiliate programs. Using an affiliate program means that I receive a commission when a product is purchased through a link at my blog or YouTube channel. There is NO additional cost to you. The money generated through these links are what helps support my videos and teaching. The affiliate programs I use include: Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Scrapbookdotcom, Create for Less, Joggles, Neat and Tangled, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Impression Obsession, Pretty Pink Posh, Queen & Co, Tonic Studios, ScrapbookPal, Studio Katia, Therm O Web, Sizzix, Blitsy, Sunny Studios, Spellbinders, Kat Scrappiness and more.

I purchase most of my own supplies. I do receive some free product to work with and will always try to be clear in my posts when product was received for free or in exchange for design work. I no longer do paid reviews. I do accept product or payment in exchange for design work.usually from companies that I am already familiar with and feel like they provide a quality product.

I work on design teams. I have been on various design teams in the past and I am actively serving on design teams. I receive product from these companies in exchange for my work. I choose to work with companies that I feel from personal experience offer quality products. I will also accept guest design posistions from companies that I am a fan of. Current design teams: Kat Scrappiness and Create a Smile stamps video team.

I strive always to share my honest opinion. However I will refrain from offering negative opinions. It has been my experience that crafters can get varying results from the same products and so I will focus on offering helpful suggestions and tips from my own experience.

I am not an expert or certified in any way. I am simply sharing my own personal experience. You are responsible for following all manufacturer safety guidelines when operating tools and creating craft projects. Some tools I use may be dangerous if used incorrectly and I do not represent any company directly so you are responsible for understanding any operating instructions and safety precautions.
