PSC#115 Look Out The Window - Have you been looking out the window for the perfect Spring day?  This time of year you need to check the weather - you just might need an umbrella!  This month's challenge we want you to look out the window and tell us what you see.   How about showing us what you'd like to see out your window?  Maybe you need a sweet escape this time of year to a tropical paradise or a walk in the woods.  Or how about adding a "window" to your card design?  This could be a window for a shaker or a peek into the inside of your card.   You can use just about any die cut to create a die cut "window" on your design - and how you fill it is up to you!    We welcome all your crafty projects including home décor, page layouts, tags, cards and everything in between!  It's your choice, just be sure to use at least one Poppystamps die on your project!  You must use a Poppystamps product to be eligible to win! 

Need a little inspiration?  Here are some samples from our design team.  Want a closer look?   No worries.. we'll be featuring these projects on Wednesdays throughout the month, so you can see how each project was created.

Meet our  April Guest Leah Hultenschmidt selected and introduced by Design Team Member  Jyoti. 

Leah and I met through the vibrant world of Instagram's card makers community, where her talent and passion for floral designs and bright color palettes shine brightly. Despite residing in the same city, our attempts to meet in person have been thwarted by various obstacles. Nevertheless, we remain hopeful that the near future holds the promise of finally connecting face-to-face and sharing our mutual love for card making.

Hi! I'm so excited to participate as a guest designer this month. My day job is as a publisher and editor for women's fiction and romance novels, and I've been living my own happily-ever-after for 17 years with my amazing spouse. I originally started doing digital scrapbooking as a way to better understand composition and Photoshop skills for reviewing book covers, and from there I evolved into physical stamping and cardmaking. I love that I can have a finished card (or three!) in an afternoon, and it's such a relaxing creative outlet for me. I also so appreciate the amazing and inspiring community of crafters I've met along the way. It's especially fun when cardmakers say they've enjoyed a book I've worked on too.  My whole book club is also now into cardmaking, and I pulled my mom in as well. In fact, she'll be the recipient of this card, as hippos are her favorite and I couldn't resist this adorable Whittle die. Thanks again so much for having me this month!
