Hi, I'm Shawnna

I create graphics and design resources for female bloggers, crafters and biz owners;

with a fun girly style for your brand, social presence or hand-made products.

Easy access and affordability, alongside flexible licensing, give you the perfect solution for all your many projects.

When I'm not designing I'll be out walking the dogs, binging on Netflix or curled up with a good book.



Affiliate Programs

Affiliate Programs for creatives by Lovelytocu

Gaining extra income from affiliate links is a perfect way to harness the earning potential of your blog or website. And when it comes to affiliate earnings you often don't even need a blog or website, you can just use social media or Pinterest for your affiliate links making it easier than ever to earn extra income as an affiliate marketer.


If you are brand new to the affiliate world here are a few keywords you'll need to know:

Advertiser = a company looking to advertise their products or services by paying affiliates to promote for them through blogs, email or social media

Publisher = the affiliate, who publishes links promoting the advertiser

Network = an affiliate service provider who connects advertisers and publishers together and manages the link tracking and payouts to affiliates


Anyone can apply to become an affiliate but there are a few tips you should keep in mind in order to have success at getting approved for the programs you want:

1. For network programs, ensure your profile is fully filled out and up to date
2. Make sure your website is live and looking good
3. You're applying to relevant advertisers based on the content of your website
4. If you don't have a website, the same above applies to your social media links
5. Be honest about how you intend to promote the advertiser and include all details in your application
6. Make sure you know the terms and conditions for each advertiser!


The following roundup of affiliate programs is tailored specifically to those artsy craftsy oriented audiences with this list will giving you some awesome options to promote on your blog and hopefully it will save you some time tracking down the perfect affiliate programs for you.

Network Markets

These companies offer a wide selection of advertisers to choose from. You need to apply and qualify for each advertiser, and some application reviews can take a while, but once you're all set up you can start promoting right away.

Awin - This is the service that Etsy uses for its affiliate program. In order to be approved your site cannot be exclusively dedicated to promoting Etsy and they don't allow any social media linking.

Other network markets you could look into that have art, craft or design related advertisers are Flex Offers, Commission Junction, ClickBank, Amazon, eBay, and Commission Factory. These may or may not suit your needs but are definitely worth checking out.
