“I glanced out the window at the signs of spring. The sky was almost blue, the trees were almost budding, the sun was almost bright.” , it was Whispers of Spring. Millard Kaufman

Soft, whimsical colorful palette is what we have put together for this month's Kit . We say good-bye to winter and rejoice in the longer sunny warmer days. Earthly and vintage-like tones from Bo Bunny's C'est La Vie Collection, Prima's Lifetime Collection and Studio 75 Vintage Memories have captured the beauty of the Whispering Spring days ahead .
Our off the page project that comes in each kit sets us apart from any other kit club. This month we share in you capturing those memories and showcasing them where they can be seen using Kaisercraft's Off the Page Photo Frame.

Join Flying Unicorn and Kelly this month when she demonstrates on how to make this incredible creation using our April Kit of the Month

On April 9th Erica will take you step by step in making this incredible layout using our KOM - Whispers of Spring

Once Upon a Fairytale

"One day Little Red Riding Hood's mother called her and said, 'Daughter, your grandmother is very ill. Please take her this pot of butter and some custard that I have made.' 'Very well, Mother,' said Little Red Riding Hood, and ran to get her little basket for the custard and the butter. 'Be careful,' said her mother, kissing her. 'Don't stray from the path, don't stop on the way, and don't speak to any strangers.'
