Join The Craft Club: Request Your Own Unique Designs
Have you ever had an idea in mind that you wanted to create, but couldn’t find the right design file you wanted? Sure, there may have been some close ones. But sometimes close doesn’t quite get it. Picture this scenario: Your niece is about to enter middle school. As the family crafter, you’re excited to put together a special gift bag for her. This is your favorite niece; the niece who gets whatever she wants just by smiling at you. She’s the niece you buy the expensive sneakers for when her mom (your sister) tells her no. You know who I’m talking about.
After brainstorming, you finally have an idea. You decide that you’re going to create a special back to school package for her. You’re going to sublimate a glitter notebook cover for her; you’ll add her monogram to that backpack she’s been wanting; you’re even going to fill the backpack with all sorts of goodies for her.
Everything is all good until Faith (that’s what we’ll call her) tells you what designs she wants for her accessories to start the school year. Long gone are the days of wanting rainbows, cute animals, and favorite characters. She wants a “tie-dye grunge” theme. What is that?!!! But this is Faith. You WILL make this happen for her.
Unique Designs for Your Crafts
As you start looking for images, nothing really catches your eye. But then you remember something. You are a Creative Fabrica Craft Club subscriber! This is huge! So you log in and search “shirt with holes” (because that’s what comes to your mind when you think of grunge). Score! You’re able to find several graphics to choose from. Plus, you even put in a request to the talented Creative Fabrica team designers for a couple of other designs you think would go great with Faith’s gift.
What is The Craft Club?
The Craft Club is a space within Creative Fabrica where you can request new designs to be added. You can even vote on other requests that have been made. The design team will work on your request once received and approved. Designs with the most votes will be at the top of the designers’ priority list. You’ll even receive an email letting you know that your requested design has been completed.
Accessing The Craft Club
To have access to The Craft Club, you will need to have a Creative Fabrica All Access subscription or Crafts subscription. With either of these subscriptions, you will be able to benefit from The Craft Club. Here’s how to get started:
- On the Creative Fabrica website, go to the subscription page
- Choose the subscription of your choice. Remember that The Craft Club is only available to All Access and Crafts subscribers
- Complete your personal and payment information and you’re set to start
- On the Creative Fabrica main page, navigate to the “Crafts” tab or the the “Tools” tab
- Select “The Craft Club” (top picture below)
- On the right, click the green “Submit a Design Request” box (bottom picture below)
- Add the details of your request. The request can be for graphics or even for 3D cut files
Note that the CF Designer Team will not create designs that are licensed or copyrighted. Personalized designs are not created. So you will not be able to request a mermaid with your name incorporated into the tail. But don’t let that stop you from using this wonderful feature. You can always personalize the designs yourself once you have the base design. For instance, you can request a mermaid with rose gold and teal hair diving up to the surface. Once your design is approved and created, you can add your name in the font and style you’d like within your design software. Also know that any designs that are created are made available to ALL members with a Craft Club subscription.
Voting on Designs
You can browse other submitted design requests from “The Craft Club” page. If you see a design you would like, you can also vote for that design to help move it to the top of the list. Checking out other design requests is a cool process. You’re able to see what other crafters have in mind. In fact, it wasn’t until after I began looking at others’ requests that I realized what a wonderful and valuable asset The Craft Club is. This can work to your advantage as well. Why not ask your crafting friends to hop on and vote for the design you requested?
Once the design you requested is ready for download, you will receive an email from Creative Fabrica. The email will include the design files. Click on the photo of the design to download the files. Save the design to your device and then upload into your design software. For help downloading files from Creative Fabrica and uploading them into your software, check out this article here on The Artistry.
But wait… there’s more! In addition to exclusive designs, Craft Club members have access to exclusive discounts from craft and vinyl suppliers. Some of these discounts include Expressions Vinyl, Hello Print (Europe), and Scrappy Diva (Canada). Current deals will be listed on this page. There are several other discounts as well. Check it out.
So how did it turn out for Auntie and Faith? Auntie downloaded the designs from the email she received. After playing around with designs in her design software, she was finally happy with what she came up with. She grabbed a glittery notebook, and she added a tie dye grunge shirt design to the cover. Of course, she made a few other things to go along with the notebook. Check out the super cute pic below and let me know what you think.
I hope you have a chance to check out all of the possibilities with The Craft Club soon. I’d love to see your creations. If you utilize The Craft Club, please tag me on Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok. I am EJsFunCrafting on all platforms. Happy making!
