Common Download Issues & Fixes

Here at Dream a Little Bigger we offer tons of free files for your crafty use. You can download an easy to print crochet pattern or printables like labels and coloring pages. We also offer an ever-growing collection of Free SVG Files. If you find yourself running into issues downloading any of our free files here on the blog, please check out our most common download issues and fixes.

Free files including PDF printables and SVG cut files on this site are free for our Newsletter Subscribers. (YAY!) Subscribing to our newsletter is easy and costs nothing. By subscribing you’ll hear from me via email. Subscribers receive all sorts of fun crafty goodness including free files, post updates, the occasional good crafty deal, and more. I’ll never sell your information and you can unsubscribe at any time.

On each post that offers a free download file you will see a sign up form that looks something like this:

Enter your information and click the button to subscribe. You’ll receive a subscription confirmation email to download your free file.

It can take a minute (or two) for the form to appear if the blog is very busy. Leave the webpage up and check it in a few minutes. When it loads, it will look like this:

If you have not received the email, please check your Spam Folder.

If you use Gmail please open your Promotions Tab. You can find promotions in the menu on the left-hand side of gmail by clicking “More” and scrolling down OR in your Gmail inbox there are 3 tabs at the top of the page: Primary, Promotions, and Social. Click Promotions to check

Email isn’t always an instant thing and sometimes there is a bit of a delay between when your email is sent and when you actually receive it. Please wait a few minutes and re-check your email.

Still no message? Do me a solid and try the form one more time? Surprisingly often there is a typo in the email address and that’s the issue.

If you still don’t receive the email after you waited patiently a bit and you’re positive you used the correct email address and checked your spam and promotion folders, contact me and I can send you the file directly.

Even if you’ve filled out every free download form on this site you will not receive multiples of the same email address. You will, however, receive multiples if you sign up using an alternate email address.

Sorry! Contact me and let me know which design you need. I’ll reply with the correct file.

Your PDF is zipped into a folder with other images and cut files plus a Read Me file that explains what you can and cannot do with the design. A ZIP file is just a folder that contains several documents and must be unzipped to access the files inside. We offer our free files in ZIP files because they are compressed making them easier to transfer and download. Learn how to open a ZIP File.

Though it might seem like nothing is happening, something might be. After you click the button look around for the file on your computer. The file might automatically download to your desktop, documents, or downloads folder. Check those locations first.

If it isn’t there, do a file search on your computer for a ZIP file with “dreamalittlebigger”.

After clicking the button on a mobile device, check your Files or Downloads folder.
