VB Digital Tutorial: Downloading & Designing



Hello VB Community!

Today I’ll be sharing a few tips and tricks for making the most of your VBKit digitals! 

 

HOW DO I GET VB DIGITALS? 

The digitals are an exclusive bonus for preordered VBKits - it’s an added perk to preorder a monthly VBKit. Digitals are included with both VBKit preorder options - both Basic & Basic + Paper Pack. Digitals may not be purchased separately or shared with others. If you purchase a full VBKit during “Kit Extras” releases, digitals will not be included. You can find more information on preorders & VBKit FAQ HERE.

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Digital content includes a folder containing multiple paper patterns and clip art designs coordinating to the monthly VBKit themes.

Each digital download also comes with a Terms of Use policy that must be followed, I.E., digitals are strictly for PERSONAL use only and cannot be sold (either in digital or physical form), or shared. We have linked the Terms of Use HERE for you to view. Please review these terms in full. If there is a breach of these terms, you will not be allowed to purchase from www.shopvillabeautifful.com and your account will be terminated without notice.

 

DOWNLOADING THE DIGITALS

First things first, you need to download the digitals. If you preordered a VBKit, an email containing your digital downloads is automatically sent once your order has been marked as shipped. If you do not receive the email notification, check your spam / junk / promotion folders first, then email VB Customer Service after Kit Week has ended. Please be sure to check all your inboxes & do a keyword search for "villabeautifful" and "digitals" prior to contacting customer service. 

You must download the digitals from a desktop computer or have an app on your smartphone to "unzip" a file. The files may not work if you try to save them directly to your phone.

Check out the video below for more details and a step-by-step look at how I find, save, and start designing with my VB digitals each month.

How to Save & Download Your VB Digitals

 

DOWNLOAD LIMITS

Please keep in mind you only have 6 downloads for each set of VBKit digitals. You have 1 year to download your digitals until they are taken off the server. There is a contract with the illustrator that the artwork is available for download within 1 year & we need to have room for new digitals. It is best to download the digitals once you receive the email and store them in a drive or cloud storage. Make sure to download them as soon as you get the email so you don't miss out!

Please contact VB Customer Service prior to reaching the download limits if you have any trouble with the digital download link. We cannot reset the download link if you use all six of your downloads or if you wait past the link expiration date.

 

USING THE DIGITALS 

After saving your digital files, it's time to start creating! The possibilities are endless. Dashboards, dividers, planner covers, stickers, die cuts, page markers, bookmarks, folders... the list goes on and on! 

My favorite tools for getting crafty with VB digitals are Canva and the Silhouette Studio. Both are FREE (my favorite LOL)!! Canva has paid features, but you can do so much with the free version also. You don't have to have an actual Silhouette cutting machine in order to download and utilize the free design software. I've made a few different video tutorials that are available on my YouTube channel using both of these methods, if you'd like to take a look at those. 

The VB Design Team has also created some incredible projects featuring the VB Digitals! You can find projects & step-by-step tutorials on the Planner Inspiration section of the shop. You can even use the shop's search bar to filter for specific blog keywords, such as "digitals" "dashboard" "cover" "dividers" etc if you have a particular project in mind!
