SNP Monthly News

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!
