Pretty Scrappy Closed

I am sorry if anyone went to the store in the last 48 hours to either place an order or pick up an order, I would have written sooner but I had to get my head around a few things that went on in the store.

Friday I was notified by another designer that Pretty Scrappy’s store owner Julie Frank (Share Your Moments Designs) and the store manager Robin Grief (ScrapperGirl Designs, Big Apple Designs and Plain Jane Designs – which was all part of the problem) were accused by another store of stealing and using non-commercial use elements from multiple kits in their own works. The reaction by the owner was a full denial despite quite visible proof. I was able to pull all of my products from the store and write a letter to leave the store just before Julie closed down the ftp, shut down the store and sent an email that basically said nothing to only about 30% of the Pretty Scrappy teams. Many innocent designers and team members tried to log into the store only to find it “closed for maintenance” and no explanation. I am fortunate enough to have two other stores (Divine Digital HERE and HERE and Digital Scrap Ink) but other designers were not so lucky.

If you have purchased anything from me, Tammy, or our Life’s Everyday Moments collection at Pretty Scrappy and were unable to pick up your product, please send me your invoice and I will get your product to you.
