Fresh Baked: April 10, 2015

April is here. That means changes in the weather from one extreme to the other. Rain in one area. Snow in another. Basically, Mother Nature is saying stay home, cuddle up inside, and scrapbook. The designers are here to help you with that! They have released some wonderful kits this week, as well as some gorgeous templates! You’ll find something, for sure, that you just can’t do without!

Before I show you the goodies, I have to share some layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “Dream Big


Created by CindyB. I love the angle of the picture, and the use of the mask on it!


Created by Colleen. I love how PERFECTLY the kit matches the pictures. Also, I love that she scraps older pictures!


Created by MamaCake. I love the layers and the cluster work is just wonderful!
