I think we are finally seeing signs of spring in most of the U.S., although I hear some of our Canadian friends are still getting lots of snow.  I don't know about you, but I've been over winter for a very long time.  Hopefully all the fun things we have for you in April won't keep you inside too much that you can't get out enjoy some fresh air.  Just grab your laptop and find a good park bench or deck chair (and hopefully some good wifi), and enjoy both at the same time.

We plan to keep your Head in the Clouds with our April store collab kit.  This beautifully soft collection of elements, papers, alpha, templates, and quickpages will keep you coming back to use it over and over.
Grab the kit here and bundle here.

All you designers out there will love the raise we are giving your CU stash this month.  Grab our Raise It Up CU embossed paper pack, on sale at 25% off the first week of April.

What do you get when you combine a color palette and no theme with a bunch of UH-MAZING designers?  You get this month's Bits N Pieces products.
They were given the colors above and free reign to design whatever they wanted with it.  The results are incredible.  Grab each of these products for just $1 each the first week of April.  It's a perfect time to stock up and use them in the Bits N Pieces challenge in the forum.  Affordable digi-products plus forum points equals a great deal!

Don't you just love to gather with your friends, get a layout completed, and earn a prize for it?  I know I do, so be sure to put all these speed scraps in your phone or on your calendar.  And remember, these are all stored in the forum calendar as well, and you can schedule a reminder from it!  Don't miss out on all the fun!!
Hope you have a great month!

Even though the calendar says March, it still feels like winter in so many places right now.  When will we ever start to feel some warm spring air?  Around Scraps N Pieces, we have been keeping ourselves warm by designing some amazing products for you, our awesome members and customers.

Are you a fan of the art journaling style of scrapping?  If you are, then you are going to LOVE the store's March collab kit.  It's called Express Yourself, and it is awesome!
Grab it while it's 50% off!  The kit is on sale for $4, but you can grab the bundle for just $5.50.


Do you know the definition of earworm?  It's defined as, "a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person's mind."  And I think the music-themed Bits N Pieces for March will be running through your mind all month until you snatch them all up.  The pieces are just $1 each the first week, and then will regular price and possibly bundled up into full kits.  And don't forget our Bit N Pieces month-long challenge; snag some great kits at a low price and earn forum points in the process.


Our members mean so very much to us.  The 3-year old son of one our members was just recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer last week. This is something they would have never thought would happen to their family.  It is Stage 4, as this type of cancer is often not symptomatic until that time. He will have to go through some aggressive chemo, then surgery to remove his tumor, then more chemo. There is a 40-50% survival rate, but his doctors are very optimistic. This family has 3 other small children and a new baby on the way. Together, the Scraps N Pieces designers developed an amazing kit called Little Warrior, to help raise funds that will cover some of their costs at this time. This kit is a beautiful children’s hospital themed collab that chronicles the journey that this little warrior is facing. All proceeds from the sale of this kit will go to this little family to help with expenses.


Be sure to add the March speed scraps to your calendar, or better yet, go to the forum calendar and set a reminder.

Have a great day!!
