And now for our Headliner:  

                             Ishani                             



Ishani's "Super Hero" stole my heart!  I love the stenciled rainbow and the bright vibrant colors she used to color her bear.  The wobbler on the back made it extra fun and I know seeing it personalized with the recipient's name was even more special!  Congratulations Ishani, YOU are my Headliner this week!

Challenge #431 Reminder and A New Guest Designer Announcement


I have two important things for you in this week's reminder post: firstly, there is still time to play in Challenge #431: Anne Marie's Theme Challenge. To see the original post and to view the Design Team's inspiration cards, click HERE. We can't wait to see what you create! This challenge ends Friday, March 8th at Noon, PST.

Secondly, I am delighted to announce we have another guest designer that will be joining us for the rest of 2019 to work alongside our existing guest designers, Su Mohr and Wanda Cullen, and the rest of the paper Players team. We are thrilled to be joined by the talented Windy Ellard - here's a little introduction to help you get to know her better:





Windy Ellard

I have been stamping and paper crafting for 21 years now.  I got started with scrap booking but I wanted to stamp my page titles and make my own backgrounds so was introduced to stamps and ink which has become a habit - I mean hobby - ever since.   

I have been married for almost 29 years and we have two awesome adult children, Amanda is 23 and Cole is 21.
Stamping is my hobby and creative outlet but I do love to travel.  It gives me lots of inspiration for my hobby in styles and colors. I love the beach and being on and in the water. Living in Florida, I get to have lots of beach and pool time.
I love to play in challenges like The Paper Players because they do challenge me to create.  I am pretty good with color combos but have a hard time with layouts for my projects and these challenges help me. My favorite is when there is a tic-tac-toe challenge and I can pick!
I am really excited and feel blessed to be a part of The Paper Players design team. 


Welcome Windy to the team - we are excited to be working with you and look forward to you sharing your fabulous creations with us!

Hi, stampers!  It's Ann, thanking everyone who participated in my sketch challenge this week. There were so many wonderful entries. The task of narrowing it down to a single card was difficult, but it was one in which I took delight.  
Before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team this week.

And now for our Headliner:  

Amy Koenders




Amy's card is breathtakingly beautiful! The floral focal point is colored to perfection with a trio of  colors that work so well together.  With its subtle background and simple embellishments, it maintains a clean look. This card is perfect in every way...and made this Layer Lover's heart go pitty- pat! Congratulations Amy on being my choice for Headliner this week!

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here. Please come back tomorrow for a pretty Theme Challenge from Anne Marie.
