And the winner is…

By December 14, 2007General

CONGRATULATIONS!

Here are all the answers…

DAY 5: How many dies are there TOTAL in Papertrey’s Nestabilities Complete Collection? 92

DAY 4: How many "handmade by"/"created by" stamps can be found in the entire Papertrey collection? (This tally should include any and all stamps designed to be used on the back of projects in conjunction with your signature.) 15

DAY 3: How many tutorials have I featured on this blog? (Not counting the ones presented during this countdown; just the ones linked on the left.) 42

Day 2: What weight is Papertrey’s exclusive Stamper’s Select cardstock? 110

Day 1: How many sentiment combinations are there in our Paper Tray stamp set? 103

Equation: 110 – 15 + 103 – 92 + 42= 148

    Oh dear…I had to go back and read the question for Day 3 again. It reads
    DAY 3: How many tutorials have I featured on this blog? (Not counting the ones presented during this countdown; just the ones linked on the left.)

    I had my blinders on and missed the part in parentheses!! Oh well…what a fun run it was. Thanks for keepin’ us hopping Nichole.

    Fun game! I couldn’t decide whether to count the new tutorials or not – but didn’t matter since I couldn’t find today’s answer. Great job! 😀

    Carla says:

    I can’t get too excited about the releases. I’m bored with nugget labels and little words. So many broken links, can’t even see the half set. Surprised how many people order sight unseen. Seems to be everyone following the crowd lately?

    What’s with the comment above mine?!?! Doesn’t seem very nice. Anywho….Nichole I am sorry I missed the release tonight. I was at a Christmas party. I love the sets. Congrats on another wonderful release. I will find out if my girls want to add to my order and place it tomorrow. Chances are I won’t see it here in Canada till 2008 but like I have always said….SO worth the wait!! Merry Christmas, Nichole!!

    I love the new sets, Nichole. They are so versatile. I love being able to decorate candy… and not just the nuggets. I mean, who doesn’t like chocolate!!! It puts such a nice touch on the little things.

    You are an amazing inspiration, Nichole! Thanks for everything you do. I hope you have a fabulous Christmas.

    I agree with the comment above me completely from start to finish. If you dont like it dont look….More for the rest of us.

    I too will be anxiously awaiting my new little set. i just spent $25.00 on those cute little nuggets to make sure I would have them to decorate when the sets arrive!!! (they are hard to get where I am)Absolutely worth the wait to Canada!! Thanks Nicole and the Papertrey Ink Gang!!

    First of all, congratulations Chris on the big win!!

    And for Carla, I admit I did buy a set sight-unseen at the last release — because I had seen enough on Nichole’s blog that I knew I would enjoy it. Although I did take a good long look at the releases this time because I’m not a “nugget-and-candy” decorator… I will find other uses for these stamps because I like the designs. I was particularly pleased with Sweet Love as a non-label set.

    Those of us with a lot of faith in the Papertrey products are usually influenced strongly by our past experience with their quality and the complementary nature of the sets. And frankly, last night I decided to try the monogram stationery and I was so afraid that I would mess it up — but it turned out great and it gave me another mark of confidence in Papertrey.

    Of course, every set isn’t for everyone and as much as I love all of the ideas on the blog and the sets I have, I’m looking forward to less label-loving stamps in the future, and I think there really is a great variety at Papertrey overall. But I also understand that Nichole has a carved her own niche in the market with stamps that apply to gift-giving, gift-making and packaging and has excelled in those efforts and creative designs.

    Applause to Papertrey, yet understanding to Carla, too. I do suggest, if you haven’t already, going to the galleries to find non-label examples of the “label” sets!!

    Merry Christmas to you all!

    sorry my post posted twice – it took me about a dozen tries to get it to go… By the way, I guess my remarks were not taken in the spirit they were offered – so much for magnanimity.
