10 Former PTU kits are now FTU!!!!!

That's right!!!!! I got 10 of my former PTU kits loaded up and ready for download :) Just scroll through the FTU kits to find them. I will be adding about 20 more as soon as I have time. Keep checking back...and of course ENJOY the freebies ;)

Important Info - Gimptastic Scraps News

Lately there seems to be nothing but drama in the tagging/designing world and because of that I have made the tough decision to stop selling my kits. I just can't continue to watch dishonest people make money, while hardworking/HONEST people are treated poorly. 


What does this mean for you??? Well the good news is that a TON of my former PTU kits will now be FTU :D AND I will be offering exclusively FTU kits from now on. So it's a winning situation for all of my Gimptastic fans. I appreciate and thank all of you...especially those of you that have made a purchase from me, I really do.


I will be sorting through my kits and adding download links. So please be patient :)

Thank you;
Amy aka: Gimptastic Scraps
