Many of the designers at Scrapable have been talking and we feel a statement needs to be made.
I want to note that I wrote this statement based upon many of the feelings of the designers at Scrapable. However, if anyone is offended by anything here that is my fault not the other designers since I chose the basic wording. Hopefully no one will be and this will explain where many of us are right now.
There is a lot going on right now at Scrapable and we feel that it is important to make a statement about it all. First, there have been a few big changes recently as the ownership of Scrapable switched hands about a week ago. Today (Jan 28) the forum and store of Scrapable were shut down. This occurred without the knowledge of the previous owner, the current acting administrator, and the designers of Scrapable. At this time none of us have enough information to speculate as to why this occurred. There is a lot that simply is not known at this time. Unfortunately this includes the future of Scrapable.
Here is what we do know. None of us want to see all of the hard work that we and many others have put into Scrapable disappear. Scrapable has been an amazing site and with the right owner and a little work it is possible it can continue to be an amazing site. A few of the designers and the previous owner are working together to try to make things right. They are hard at work in discussion with another possible buyer. This may not work out in the end, but there has been too much work and effort put into Scrapable to see it go down without a fight.
If anyone has any outstanding orders for any of the designers at Scrapable please contact the designer directly. We will make sure that you have your links! If you have gift certificates or coupons that you were unable to use, again please contact the designers directly and we will do what we can to make sure that you get what you need.
All of the designers at Scrapable were stunned by what happened on today, as were all of the members and others associated with the site. We want you to know that while we are all finding our footing and determining our next step we have not forgotten about everyone else. We are aware that what is happening at Scrapable affected more than just us designers. We want you to know that we are all working on something special for all of you. We don’t have a lot of information right now and we don’t have a lot of certainty, but we DO have a lot of heart and an amazing group of women.
At this point, none of us know the future of Scrapable. However, that doesn't mean that we will not try to make everything as right as we possibly can, even though none of this was any fault of the designers. So again, if you have had any problems with your orders (didn't receive links, didn't get a chance to download) please contact me and I will verify it and get back to when I possibly can. We will have a special thank you to our customers available very soon.
I'm also in talks with another store. This may take a while to finalize, and I won't say any more about it because this is not a done deal. However, I am trying to get back up and running as soon as I possibly can.
Currently you can only purchase one item of mine, and that is my collab with InspiredbyDominic Designs. You can find that at Scrappity-Doo-Dah right now, if you're interested in purchasing that. Also I still plan on having the designer spotlight up this week, possibly earlier than Wednesday.
I will let you all know as more develops, and thank you so much for being patient with us.
