As a Creative Team member for various designers and/or stores, I have received their products for free or with a discount in return for creating and posting projects. Many of the layouts you see here on my blog were done as a requirement for these CTs. Any additional advertising that I do is purely out of love and my wish for their business to succeed.
Last month DSP moderator Amber asked me if I could design a kit that would coordinate with her soon-to-be niece's nursery. I jumped right in and made the MOST adorable PINK, GIRLY kit ever!!! I even made a matching alpha.
