Welcome, April!

It’s April Fool’s Day, and while prepping for this blog post, I considered doing something funny or clever to celebrate the day. But I have to be honest… I was a classroom teacher for many years, and I never really got into the April 1st pranks!

Instead, I thought I’d infuse your day with a breath of spring! I recently received the SCT Daffodil Days Card Kit, and all of the springtime goodness included in the kit got me inspired. There’s nothing like a card kit to spark your creativity.

My papercrafting has morphed over the years—I’m a scrapbooker turned cardmaker. While I’d consider myself more of a stampy cardmaker these days, I started out as a scrappy cardmaker, and it felt good to go back to those roots. Patterned papers, premade die cuts, and pretty ribbons with a touch of colorful cardstock can turn out some pretty and fast designs!

Let’s take a look at my results!

There’s SO much goodness in this kit! I barely even scratched the surface of what could be created with it. I can’t wait to send these cheery springtime greetings to friends! Want a closer look at what’s in the kit? Check out this video on our YouTube channel.

Be sure to check out the SCT Daffodil Days Card Kit and the SCT Spring Fling Scrapbook Kit and get something delicious delivered to your doorstep. You’re sure to be inspired!

And thanks so much for celebrating our 13th birthday with us last week. We love getting the chance to celebrate with our friends from all over the world!

Here’s to a fantastic April!
