April Scrapsimple Club - Delayed Release

15 April 2015 - 10:16 AM

If you subscribe to the club, you should have gotten this in an email from Angie, but just in case you're wondering why it isn't showing up today, this is why!


Due to the store move on April 16th we are going to hold off on the release date of the April ScrapSimple club.  This will allow your download links, when you receive them, to be good for the full 30 days.

We will send your club out as soon as we are back up and running again.  We are expecting no later then April 17th or 18th (hopefully sooner).






Forum Update Re-Scheduled For Tuesday

29 March 2015 - 07:59 PM

Just letting you know that we'll be doing a forum software update sometime this week. The forum will be down during the update process. Hopefully it will be quick and easy, but these things are hard to predict! I'll post here when we have a better time frame of when it will happen. Thanks in advance for your patience.


While the forum is down, the boutique will still be up and running as usual. :D


Wendee had to fix a few things before the update and is planning to do the work on Tuesday.

When you can't get on the forum, it will mean she's in the midst of the update.
