What a great set to papercraft with.

Now, enjoy this gorgeous altered Mixed Media Box by Lori Williams using Once Upon a Springtime! You will love her fussy cutting.

"I bought multiples of this collection when it was released several years back and used almost all of it up, so I was a happy girl to see the re-release of Once Upon a Springtime. This is the perfect collection if you love to fussy cut as there are so many characters and flowers tucked throughout the various papers. I created a shadow box with the scene on the front but with the help of foam tape, the enclosed tag/cards that come with the box and of course paper I finished it solid in the back. I’ll have to find something extra magical to go in this box and it’s truly enchanted." ~Lori

Love these papers!

Well done Graphic 45 - Once Upon A Springtime is my favorite.

I have a couple sheets left from Once Upon a Springtime, so i am so excited that it is being featured. I have a full ABC primer and anxious to have a safty net. Well done.

Ooo I can't wait to these Beautiful Collections to move home to me:)

I never had a chance to get these when they were originally released so bored my chance. Wonderful collections.

These packs are fantastic! I love that the chipboard pieces and stickers are included! Thanks!

Aaarrggghh! So pleased you're re-releasing ABC Primer. I've been wanting to make a mini album of my daughter's school days now that she's left but only had a couple of sheets of this collection. Now I'll be able to do one :-)

Loving the new ABC Primer and the banner project by Ginny Nemchak!

Yeah! I'm so happy. Once Upon A Springtime was basically gone when I became a fan and couldn't get my hands on some of those sheets. I love the extra sheet you created and the stickers and chipboard. I can't wait to get those. ABC Primer is also one of my favorites and is great for my kids. I'm glad you have brought back these lovely collections.

all the collections should stay available forever cause they are beautiful.

Too excite to see Once Upon A Springtime coming back! I missed out the last time it was released. It's my favorite line ever!
