How do you download these?
You will need to go to each site and download from there.
I tried 3 times , I filled out all the info that they wanted… and still it kept wiping out all of my info…. all I wanted was the free shamrock to try it on a dress for st patricks day… forget it , no one should have to jump through the hoops over and over…. It could have led to me buying more forget it.
I’m so sorry to hear that their site gave you trouble. I am not affiliated with them but did enjoy using their product.
