Guest Designer :: March 2022

I'm so excited to be back today sharing another talented crafter that has agreed to work with Ink Blot Shop products as a guest designer!

Today's guest designer is...

April Leithner

April, tell us a little bit about yourself and your creative journey...

My husband and I are currently in the process of moving from Northeast Oregon to Texas to be closer to our 2 wonderful kids, awesome son-in-law, and the cutest grandson ever. We are excited to have our family close and to explore a new state.
My stamping journey began when I attended a Stampin’ Up! party in 2000. I have been hooked on papercrafting since. About 6 or 7 years ago I branched out and started buying from other stamping companies. Stamping has given me some of the best friends a person could want. I started my Instagram page and blog shortly after I lost my mom a couple of years ago. Creating handmade cards was something we shared, and I wanted to do something in her memory. I have grown a ton creatively since I began these new adventures. I am working on a YouTube channel next.
I also work part time in my husband’s business and spend the rest of my time in my craft room. I am really loving all the virtual workshops and retreats being offered. Meeting new people and learning new techniques from the comfort of my craft room is perfect for those of us who live in more rural areas.
The talent in the world of card making and papercrafting is so very inspiring.

You can find April's creative presence online in a few places:

April's card features the Leopard Print Background stamp and the congratulations sentiment from the Solid Sayings stamp set. I think all leopards should consider wearing pink from now on, don't you?!


Stay tuned to April's Instagram account throughout the next few weeks as she shares more projects featuring Ink Blot Shop products.

I'll leave you with a couple little teasers of what she has coming up...
