DesignBundles & FontBundles – my go to sites to buy and sell

DesignBundles is my preferred marketplace to buy and sell digital designs for Cricut, Silhouette and general crafting. They have consistent licensing terms so you know what the rules are no matter who you buy from on the website. 

Their sister-site, FontBundles, is now the only place I buy fonts so I’m 100% sure I can use them for both personal and commercial projects.

I also sell on Etsy if that is your preferred place to shop.

Craft Tutorials by Tara Reed on YouTube

I'm Tara and I know a little something about art and design.

I’m Tara Reed and I’ve been creating art and design professionally since 2000 and crafting since I could hold a crayon.

I have a passion for words and fonts and know how to mix & match them to create visually pleasing layouts. In addition to selling digital designs for crafters I have experience licensing my art for products sold in stores and online around the globe - so I know what works.

You can be confident that craft bundles you buy from me are well designed - both visually and technically. I'm a Star Seller on Etsy with over 4200 reviews. It's important to me that what you get works and I always do what it takes to make sure that happens.
