Introducing Home for the Holidays

After the release of Boards & Beams we received numerous requests for a holiday set that enabled people to decorate the houses as they wished.  The introduction of this stamp set fulfills this request in an easy to use format that I think will be to your liking!  To begin my project today, I stamped the townhouse from Boards & Beams onto our Classic Kraft cardstock using Noir Palette ink.

One of my favorite things to see as I drive through neighborhoods during the holidays is wreaths and greenery hanging on windows.  The little stamps here allow you to do the same thing with your Boards & Beams houses quickly & easily!  Just stamp the number that you need.  There are different sets of windows and doors created to coordinate with each of the two house included in the original set.

Color the windows and door in to suit your needs and cut them out ( I used a sharp craft knife, but you could definitely do it successfully with snips too). 

All that’s left is to adhere them on top of the original *undecorated* windows & door.  How easy is that!

Here is my completed project (you can click to enlarge).  A fun little card with an excerpt from one of my favorite Christmas songs; “There’s no place like home for the holidays.”  I embossed this sentiment from the set with the Filigree Gold Detail embossing powder.  Did I already mention how much I love this stuff?!?!?  Notice the patterned paper used at the bottom of my card?  That is from our NEW Holiday Vintage Prints 8×8 patterned paper collection!

These six patterns are printed on our beautiful vintage cream paper

(ETA: I made an error.  Please note that this pattern collection is printed on our crisp white paper, not vintage cream!  I apologize for my mistake!)

This has been one of the Design Team’s favorites (and I *have* to admit, I love it too!)  It is SO much prettier in real life and I cannot WAIT for you to see it! 

Papertrey + the 15th = 15 lucky winners!

We have put a lot of effort into wowing you for this particular holiday release in both products & projects!  And we want to know what you think!  Leave a comment on today’s post, letting us know which project, product or idea has inspired you the most.  It can be something here from my blog or even one of the other design team member’s blogs.  Did you have a light bulb moment with anything that you saw, and just KNEW you had to try it yourself?  Just for taking the time to give us your feedback, we will be awarding a few little prizes….

Because the release takes place on the 15th, we will be giving away FREE stamp sets to 15 randomly selected people!

That’s right!  15 lucky posters will be randomly selected to receive one free Papertrey set of their choice.  Now how fun is that!  Just for commenting on this post and letting us know how you feel!  (Please play fair, only one comment per person!) The winners will be announced tonight during the release party! 

ETA: This contest will be closing at 9pm EST, with the winners being announced here a bit after the release party starts at 10pm EST.  Thanks for playing!

Thanks for visiting today, and I hope you will stop by later tonight for the big reveal and release party!

    Oh my goodness, I don’t think I can pick just one! I adore the sneak peek of Lisa’s project that you showed with the snowman on top of the jar, its adorable. And, of course, Debbie’s christmas house with all its details is just breathtaking. I’m wondering if that is an addition to the Boards and Beams, or a fully new set? hmm. I will, of course, HAVE to have that new designer paper. Beautiful as always.

    Oh, can’t wait to stay up late tomorrow!

    Dana Klinkner says:

    I loved the warm winter wishes card that you made with the Christmas tree background stamped in white. But the “light bulb moment” for me was when you explained how you look at gold – as a warm earthy yellow and it can go with any color that goes with yellow. Hello! That helped me SO much. All of a sudden my mind clicked how to use gold ribbon, ink, paper, accents, etc. when making card, instead of always thinking super fancy and elegant. I can now imagine homey, traditional, classic and casual looks using gold. Thank you for that enlightening tidbit of info. πŸ™‚ Now I’ll be wanting to buy all the gold ribbon for sure! πŸ™‚

    Love the Home for the Holidays set. My husband spent almost 21 years in the Air Force and we were able to make it home for every Christmas. We almost didn’t make it a couple of times, but we managed.

    Thanks for inspiration.

    Jamie says:

    Oh my there have been so many great projects!! But my favorite had to be the Gingerbread house kits on Nikki’s blog. I thought that it was a fantastic idea and I really want to make them for my neighbors.

    The holiday paper is beautiful, and I am in love with the gold ribbon. I can’t wait to be able to play with it.

    Ho ho ho! It IS beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! πŸ™‚ I think the add-on set for Boards & Beams is just too clever, and I LOVED your Bar/Bat Mitzvah bank book. Terrific! Fingers crossed…

    Jen says:

    When I purchased Boards and Beams I was trying to come up with how to use it for my christmas cards. The extra window and door stamps are so what I had invisioned. I cant wait until they are released. Love all the other examples on the others blogs, but the extra sets for the boards and beam take the cake πŸ™‚

    Steph says:

    Like every month, I have been so inspired by every project during the countdown! I especially loved your ice cream gift set (maybe just because I love ice cream so much) and Debbie’s Home for the Holidays card today- her attention detail was amazing. I can’t wait to get this add-on set. Thanks for the chance to win! (I hope I do!)

  • 22

    I collect Dept. 56 houses for the holidays and the B&B set used today on Debbies blog and here are so reminiscent of those. But, Lauren’s cocoa carrier also holds a special spot since I LOVE the snowmen and I make my own ‘secret recipe’ cocoa every year. The pattern paper is a must have for my holiday creations!! πŸ™‚ Awesome job knockin’ our socks off this month.

  • 25
    Elizabeth says:

    I love all of the ideas; this is my favorite site to go for inspiration. It’s hard to pick a favorite but I think I was inspired most by Geny’s Cookie in a Jar. I know I’m going to be tight around the holidays so I want to make these for some of my co-workers and their families. I’m sure they would love it. Thanks again for all the great ideas!

    Suzanne Dean says:

    All the DT projects were fabulous–makes you want to try everything. The one that made me want to “run out and try” was Lauren Meader’s snowman/hot chocolate to-go holder/gift. Really fun and what a great gift to give or recieve. Of course I want all the new stamps and the holiday decorations for Boards & Beams—LOVE IT!!

    I got SO excited when I just read your post for Home for the Holidays! We are in the process of moving and the house from Boards and Beams, plus the sentiment “There’s no place like home” (I’ll mask off *for the holidays)will be PERFECT for cards to let friends and relatives know our new address! Thank you Nichole, for always inspiring!

    The house that Debbie created is stunning! I also really like the look of the embossed Rustic Snowflakes on kraft that Dawn used on her bag tag.

    Natasha says:

    This has certainly been an exciting week of sneak peaks. Every evening I’ve been checking your site as soon as 11PM CST rolls around πŸ˜€

    My A-ha moment- Heather’s use of twinkling h2os and embossed snowflakes. It looks stunning and is so easy to replicate!

  • 32

    I think my Ah-HA moment was the cuttlebug cutting muslin. I have been wanting a cuttlebug SO bad, but have refrained and that post just pushed it RIGHT over the edge for me. Hope santa brings me one ; )

    I also really love the Holiday Planner Mish did. I love lovely yet practical things. I can’t wait for the embossing powders and the shimmery paper!! And of course the stamp sets are great. I love how Papertrey has perfected the art of the “building” set. They are SO versatile and really pack in so much bang for the buck. Papertrey really is leading the industry, and I love it.

    Nancy says:

    Where to begin? I’ve recently been hunting for snowmen, so I’m quite happy there! I love the shimmery blue cardstock which I know will inspire snowy scenes ~ and all of the gorgeous silver and gold sparkle & shimmer will brighten anyone’s holiday season. Top that off with the latest entry to add seasonal cheer to Boards and Beams…and a sentiment from a holiday song!?! That’s my favorite thing of all :).

    How generous! Thanks for the chance to win! I’ve been loving all the snowflake projects on Pine’s/Heather’s blog. That felt stationery folder is to-die-for! πŸ™‚

  • 41
    Cindy B says:

    I like Michelle’s holiday planner a lot! All of the “treat” packaging ideas are interesting to me as well since I make and give many food items as gifts. As far as the new stamp sets go, I plan to order the snowman set and the Boards and Beams holiday additions. I’ve been buying your papers each month since I didn’t have many others and wanted to have more choices on hand when I need them. The weight of your paper is just wonderful! Thanks to you and the design team for inspiring us with your creative projects!

  • 42
    Sharon Holden says:

    All the projects that I have seen on this release have been absolutely brilliant. My favourite release is Merry & Bright. You and the design team have shown how fantastically versatile this set is and it is now my must have item. Thanks for all the holiday inspiration πŸ™‚

  • 43
    Kathy McDonald says:

    I have loved absolutely everything! If I have to choose my absolute favorite project so far it would be Lauren’s hot chocolate set with the box that holds two paper cups and hot chocolate mix. Her use of the snowman set is absolutely brilliant! I can’t wait to place my order!

  • 44
    RUTH ALLMART says:

    Hey Nichole! I can’t wait for the full reveal tomorrow. I love your attention to detail. You truly are an artist and you totally inspire me. I loved your card and all the little details for the ‘Made of Snow’ set. I love how you used wire for the arms and popped the snowman up off the card and how you used the vellum for the sentiment over the emossed background. Ingenious :o) Thanks Nichole for all your hard work and for this fabulous opportunity!

  • 45
    KarenY says:

    Anette Eakins says:

    Oh my gosh! You gals just continue to amaze me! I LOVE all of the projects you all have come up with so far, but have to say the snowman can was my absolute favorite. There are definitly at least two sets I have my eye on for this release!
    Thanks for all the wonderful Holiday gift ideas!!!

    Mary K says:

    I’m not sure I can narrow it down to one thing either. I don’t have Boards & Beams yet, but I may have to get it now that I’ve seen Home for the Holidays. So clever and a true testiment to how well you listen to your customers. PTI has really outdone themselves this month.

    Amy Young says:

    I love the money book that you created. I’ve never thought about giving money that way, but that would be perfect for a graduate. Thanks for the awesome inspiration. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new stamp sets this month!

  • 49

    I cannot wait for the snowman set and to make hot cocoa home made gifts with it. I also am inspired by the new additions to Boards and Beams. Love it!

    Kate says:

    OMG. I really can’t express how amazingly impressed I am every single month with what you come up with. So elegant. So gorgeous. So creative. Thank you for sharing a little piece of you with us. You’re such a inspiration.

  • 54

    Well actually it was THIS very post introducing Home for the Holidays that got my attention. The ability to seasonally decorate the houses makes this a very versatile set and sets it apart from the other house stamp I have (and therefore I can buy this one, see!). Thanks for the chance!

  • 55

    Oh my head is SWOONING over this. I have to say, it would be an INCREDIBLE blessing to win (I am so nervous about spending money while my husband is not working!) and I am absolutely crazy HAPPY about the new Mazel Tov set (soooooooo needed!!!)

    Lauren’s basket of Judaic gifts just _stunned_ me — and I love your money holder in a box for a Bat Mitzvah (or any other giving of money) I just think that it is so beautiful and classy… and I could see making one with vellum pages and small photos for a wedding present, too. Very, very cool… a mini-album that is very expandable. Great design means that it is applicable in so many ways — these projects both fill the bill.

  • 56
    Lori W says:

    I’m loving this release! Every stamp set, paper and ribbon must be mine! I really enjoyed Pine’s stationary kit. The packaging is so beautiful and simple, I can’t wait to recreate it for the stationary sets I give to others. Thank you everyone for such incredible inspiration!

  • 57
    Diana says:

    All the projects are so beautiful! I really have to try the gold embossing powder. My big “light bulb moment” would have to be from Heather Nichols…it never occurred to me to use felt for a stationery holder (it’s soft, yet sturdy); I will definitely have to try her project.

    Thank you for your inspiration!

  • 58
    Katie L. says:

    Wow, there are so many great ideas. I think I love the snowflakes, snowmen, and trees the best. I think I “need” the patterned paper as well. I truly appreciate the Jewish holiday set–I have one stamp that I use for every occassion and it will be nice to have options!

  • 61
    Rachelle says:

    I just love what you guys do for releases. My favorite part is all the altered items. Ways to use the stamps to put together gifts. There were several that really inspired me this time. The holiday card mailing kit, the sundae gift basket, and the white boards from frames.
    Keep it up PTI, you rock!

  • 62
    Sharron Gregory says:

    I just love all the fabulous creations–great job everyone! The Jewish Holidays set is just so thoughtfully and perfectly done. Favorite Christmas ideas are Debbie’s wonderful Home for the Holidays-such detail and I am always so impressed with her coloring technique! And I got such inspiration from Mish’s Holiday Planner and Winter Whiteboard–both are great ideas I would like to try!!

  • 66
    Becky P. says:

    I have been so excited by all of your holiday posts; however, the rustic snowflakes, coupled with the sundae treat basket was inspiring, and I have already begun shopping for baskets so I can try it for myself. Nichole, you have outdone yourself, I have been staying up late just to see your sneak peaks, and they are wonderful. Thank you for all of your talent and inspiration.

    Philomena says:

    So far I have loved everything I’ve seen but if I had to pick a favorite…Heather Nichols holiday card mailing kit. I love to give my homemade cards away as gifts and I love the idea of adapting this to other holidays and occasions as well! Now I just need a sewing machine!

  • 72
    Amy says:

    The preview projects have all been amazing this time! I can’t wait to see the new sets that have inspired all this creative genius!!!

    I think my favorite preview project was Lauren’s Cocoa to Go! Whoa! She is unstoppable!!!

    And even though it wasn’t part of the official release, your birdhouse is at the top of my list of projects to CASE when I pull out my tree this year! Thanks for all the amazing inspiration!!!

Thanks so much for listening to your customers!

    buzzy says:

    Rebecca’s build a snowman box is such a fun idea. Where I live we only get a few snow days a year so they are highly anticipated and celebrated. I am already planning on putting together a few of these in anticipation of that most wonderful forecast! I know they will be a huge hit with my family.

    I have loved everyone’s ideas. Yesterday’s post from Mish with the holiday planner inspired me to run out, buy some notepads and practice making the planner so I would have it down for when my new order comes in. I also loved Lauren’s snowman coco carrier.

  • 82
    Sherry says:

    I love the snowman set most of all! Can’t wait to see the whole set. I am inspired by the cookies in a jar made by Lisa and Geny. I love the new background paper too! And the tree set, oh I just love everything I’ve seen this time!

    I have loved all of the sneak peaks so far. All of the projects are beautiful in their own way – from Debbie’s beautiful and intricate Home for the Holidays to Nichole’s simple style – I love them all! But I have been really inspired by Michelle Wooderson’s Holiday Planner! I will definitely be making some of these!

    I am loving the Snowman Kit that Becky did πŸ™‚ I am thinking of making these for all my cousins, and send them around the beginning of December so that as soon as the snow arrives they will have all the supplies to creat their snowmen. Such a cute idea πŸ™‚

  • 93
    Jody Morrow says:

    I am LOVING all the peeks of the new snowman set! It is ADORABLE! I love that masking is not necessary and that there are different options for scarves. I like to Knifty Knit scarves during the cold months and this will make a SUPER CUTE set to make tags with for my scarves! *fingers crossed* Pick me… choose me… love me… LOL

    Stephanie says:

    I, of course, have loved every project and idea for this release. I think my favs are Becky’s snowman building kit (my neices and nephews would get a big kick out of those), Heather’s felt book to hold a card set, and your ice cream sundae kit. I think I will alter your ice cream sundae kit and make a muffin kit to be baked on Christmas morning. I will put different dried ingredients for the muffins in the tins instead of the sundae toppings – blueberries, strawberries, cinnamon/sugar, chocolate chip, pecans, walnuts, cranberries, etc. I will also add a basic plain muffin mix in a jar. Add baking cups and maybe a couple of cute plates and a butter knife in the basket. I think it would be fun for each person to “design” their own muffin concoction using the different ingredients provided. This would be a perfect gift for some of our close neighbors to enjoy. Thanks for the wonderful ideas!

    Oh boy, my wish list of Papertrey sets just keeps getting bigger – I’m sure the snowman set will be added too. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Kim says:

    All the ideas are just wonderful but I think the Ice Cream Sundae Basket is my favorite! We are starting the family gift idea this year and this is going to be a favorite with everyone I’m sure! Went shopping today for supplies so all I need now is the stamps!!!!!

    Brenda says:

    Wow, there have been so many great peeks so far, I dont know if I can choose just one. I always love Debbie Olson’s projects, and dream of stamping like her some day πŸ™‚ but I have to say my favorite is the snowflake set. Im a sucker for snowflakes big time. Love the idea of embossing them in white or clear and coloring over them with H2O’s or Radiant Pearls. Good excuse to dust them off πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win one of these great new sets!

    Sherry says:

    Wow! Where do I start??? I have many Jewish friends so that year round set will
    be so useful. And I love the interchangeable Christmas trees. What a
    clever idea! Can’t wait to see the whole
    set. And then there’s the new shimmer
    cardstocks, and the metallic ribbons and
    the designer paper……ooooh, my! It’s
    all just wonderful. Thanks so much, Nichole, for a chance to win one of your
    wonderful stamp sets.

  • 103
    Sharon D says:

    I think the all the stamps look awesome (as always!), but what I am really, really, really excited about is the silver sheer metallic edge ribbon, and the white sheer polka-dot ribbon. And the glittery paper!

    Every month, the design team’s projects are amazing!

  • 104
    Chris L. says:

    I have loved everything you have created this month! What has inspired me the most is that each day’s project has been an ensemble of projects, with so much attention to detail. I can’t wait to try something like the trio you did with Melissa’s set (hot cocoa) or the ice cream sundae basket. Thank you for sharing your creativity.

  • 105
    glorie says:

    What beautiful ideas! I can’t choose just one. But your idea for the ice cream kit is fabulous.

  • 106
    Katie says:

    Although I am not Jewish, I love the Mazel Tov set. From what I’ve seen, you’ve created an absolutely beautiful set to fill a void in the stamping world. It will be a great addition to my collection for those special moments in others’ lives.

  • 107
    Melanie says:

    I have loved and taken something from each and every idea, but I was most inspired by Lauren’s Snowman Cocoa Idea. I loved that carrier! Thank you for all you guys do!

  • 108
    Emma says:

    I love all of the new realese sets, especially Merry and Bright. Your sets are sooo versitile! I really like how you plan for Christmas early (I must take note)! Your inspiration is always top quality.

  • 118
    Nancy says:

    I’m doomed. I might as well sign my paycheck and send it to you. I don’t really need to eat this month, do I? πŸ™‚

    My favorite peek is of the Boards & Beams additions. It’s at the top of my list. But the wonderful projects you’ve made with Mazel Tov really caught my eye. I’m not Jewish, but I’m definitely making the dreidels!!

  • 119
    Jennifer says:

    What really stood out to me is the ice cream toppings box. It may seem simple, but the transparency lid is such genius! I will be trying that one out immediately…no need to wait for the holidays! Thank you, once again, for giving us such great products and terrific ideas!

  • 120
    Heather J. says:

    Hi Nichole! What a generous giveaway! I was truly inspired by the “family gift” idea that you presented with Rustic Snowflakes. I have a hard time buying for my siblings and their children and I have already started thinking about some other ideas that I could make for them this Christmas. It looks like another Papertrey Holiday Season!!! Heather

  • 121

    I just love the gold embossing on the burgundy paper. I always seem to forget to pull out the EP but love how it looks and know I should do it more often!

  • 122
    Wendy W. says:

    Oh my goodness!! The wonderful houses created by both Nichole and Debbie are just PERFECTION!! I can’t wait to get my hands on this little gem of a set! I think I feel a Christmas card coming on!! This would be really fun with Halloween and/or Valentine’s Day! I always love decorating my home for ALL holidays, so this set is going to be the BOMB!!!

  • 123

    I have enjoyed all of the sneak peeks over the last several months! There have been so many exciting uses of the new stamps and ribbons and papers! My head just swims with all of the creative possibilities you open up with all of the Design Team projects!! I love this ‘time of month’!!! I can hardly wait to see the newest Papertrey release!

  • 124
    Nancy Gagnon says:

    I am always amazed with all of the exciting new goodies with every release, but the new ribbon (YUMMY!!) & Rustic Snowflakes set have really caught my eye on this release! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance!!

  • 125
    Mary Myers says:

    Everything I have seen in the sneak peeks just whets my appetite to see/buy the sets to be released!!
    I was very interested in the Mazel Tov set–I really enjoyed the stories and history you shared. My sister is Jewish and I look forward to making cards for her special celebrations.
    Thank you so much for your inspiration!!

  • 126

    Holy Cow!!! You guys are so generous. I am amazed at everything you do. I have to be honest, when I saw what Lauren, you (Nichole) and Becky did with the snowman set I am just amazed. I actually am thinking about doing the build a snowman as a gift for my sister and her family. I cannot wait to see ALL the sets in full.

  • 127
    Nancy N says:

    It is so hard to pick a favorite! You and your entire design team always blow me away with all your creativity, but I have a passion for snowmen so at the top of my list would be Lauren’s Cocoa carrier and your snowmen card! Can’t wait for the 15th!!

  • 128
    sandygail says:

    I have been inspired by all the holiday gift ideas, but especially the cookies in a jar gift, so thoughtful, practical and easy!

  • 132
    Paula says:

    I can’t wait for the release of the snowman set. In fact I placed a order yesterday with all the items that I wanted and would need to make some of the things I’ve seen on here. I didn’t want to wait for the release night because I was worried that they would be gone. So, now I just need to be patient and wait for the new sets and order.

  • 133
    Anna D says:

    There is so much inspiration and wonderful ideas to find on this blog that I almost don’t know how to choose. The ‘Merry and Bright’ range just sneaks in as my favourite product. I also love that your gift bags are wax lined….very clever indeed!! I also am going to have to make some of my own “Cookies in a Jar” gifts. I love it all!!

    I love Heather’s felt cover for the cards! Can’t wait to do this in lots of different colors for gifts! (and maybe one to keep!)

  • 141
    Luci says:

    I loved, loved, loved Heather’s Christmas card assortment and holder. My Mom loves to give homemade cards but she doesn’t always like to make them. I think I will be casing this. I also liked her use of blues and greens with the snowflakes.

  • 142
    Melissa says:

    I simply can’t wait for this release! The companion set to Boards and Beams is brilliant I tell ya, just brilliant!

    Cara says:

    I always make all the Christmas cards we send out. This year, I hadn’t seen any sets from any company that had caught my eye yet. But on this very post, I LOVED the saying, “There’s no place like home for the holidays.” It’s perfect. So now I HAVE to have Boards and Beams. And the chance to win it is even better.

  • 144
    Tracy says:

    Every month, these sneak peeks are like Christmas! When the Boards & Beams was first released i wondered how i could put a wreath on that front door – and now its as if you were reading my mind πŸ™‚
    I love the add-on set and everything else – and I appreciate all the wonderful samples created by your amazing team. Thanks so much!

  • 145
    Amanda says:

    I love the felt note holder and set. I know so many people that would be perfect for! I am also anxious to see the complete snowman set – I just LOVE snowmen. And the add for the houses has made me reconsider the orginal set as we live FAR, FAR away from home and will not be home for the holidays.

  • 146
    valerie says:

    Well I do hope it’s me that gets one. I’m so far behind on purchasing my wants. But I’m super excited because I’ve got extra moolah and its going strait to PTI on Sunday night.

I will be using that to make my Christmas cards this year…love the top of Becky’s snowman parts box…think that would be the cutest card! Nicole, everything you do is just too cute for words. Keep up the good work.

    Candyf says:

    It’s hard to pick a favorite from this release but I think the ice cream sundae project was great. A perfect gift for family or friends.


  • 152

  • 159
    Granna on the Go says:

    Absolutely love the ideas with the egg boxes! The “Snowmen fall from heaven unassembled” is such a clever sentiment and then to have the necessary items to make a real snowman is absolutely precious! Very clever! The box with the gingerbread house makings is also terrific.

    I especially loved the entire section from all of the design team which focuses on homemade gifts from the heart. I totally believe these are the very best things that anyone can give. It really expresses the thought and joy that goes into such a gift. I am always touched the most by the most simple handmade gift.
    Thank you for such inspiration!

  • 160
    Jo Goodman says:

    All of the sets are original and give such variety. My favorite thing, however, is the new printed papers!!! They have to be the most amazing Christmas paper I’ve seen. I can’t wait to get them.

  • 161
    Sheila says:

    I absolutely love Christmas. All of the products are amazing. I was very inspired by the snowman projects – snow man pail and matching card and the cookies in a jar project.

  • 162
    Rose Ann says:

    Oh…I am totally loving this new release!! From the stamps, to the yummy ribbons and papers!! BRAVO!!

  • 163
    Lizzie Jones says:

    I think I was most inspired by Heather’s felt card folder. I could see so many applications! I went through a “felt phase” a few years ago, so I have plenty to work with. I just need to create a pattern (or cross my fingers and toes that Heather will share hers).

    My favorite stamp set so far has been the Home for the Holidays set. I love Boards & Beams and am so excited at the versatility this new set offers!

    Thank you all for the work that you do to introduce these great products! Your efforts really make the sets “come alive” and allow me to better visualize all that I could be doing with these amazing stamps. Great job, everybody!

    I’m loving all the holiday themed projects. I really like Debbie’s Boards and Beams card where the house is decorated for the holidays and the Christmas fudge tin. I love the belly band using Merry and Bright. Thanks for the inspiration. I can’t believe the holidays are just about here.

    Like other commenters, I too LOVE all the ideas posted on your blog and the designer’s blogs. However, if I had to pick, it would be Lauren’s Bun in the Oven box that she created. I love boxes or anything 3-dimensional so when I saw that, I knew I’d have to try it one day (now just waiting for one of my friends to get pregnant again so I can make something similar! LOL!).

    The boards and beams, I must have them along w/ the new additions you will be presenting. I just did not notice them till “Mish Mash” had made some holiday planners and your crafty card with the warm holiday windows. So very elegant and tastefull.

    Elaine says:

  • 176
    Cindy says:

    I just fell in love with Michelle’s holiday planner and contents. Love the combination of spring moss and pure poppy. And people really appreciate these types of useful gifts. I love anything with a vintage feel and the new patterned papers are pure charm. You girls have outdone yourselves this month:)

  • 177
    Melissa McF says:

    As always, all the projects are inspirational! Can’t pick just one but I do have a favorite product already… the polka dot pattern from the Holiday Vintage Prints paper. LOVE IT! I’ll be getting some of your new embossing powder too because I appreciate your quest for quality – and a nice fine detail powder makes such a difference in the outcome. Thank you Nichole and the rest of the Papertrey team!

  • 178
    SueB says:

    I’m LOVING everything this month but in particular Debbie’s “Home for the Holidays” card and Lauren’s box for hot chocolate. I’ve already made two of the boxes – one that will be filled with tea, a honey stick, and an individual package of cookies; and one for coffee – with biscotti. I plan to make one for hot chocolate and one that will have baby items rolled up and placed in the box. Thank you to all of you girls – fabulous samples. I’m looking forward to having the snowman set – how fun. My checkbook will be hurting this month!

    Evry month I’m completely blown away by the ingenuity and creative minds at Papertrey. But this month, you all have out done yourselves! One of my favorite ideas, as simple as is was, is the way you stamped the Home for the Holidays windows on the vintage cream paper. The house looks lit from inside! Truly stunning. I have been really wanting this set, and hope to see more like it to follow (hint, hint). With all the gift ideas you’ve presented, I will have lots of happy people on my Christmas list ths year!

    Emilia says:

    One of my favourite projects is the box made with “rustic snowflakes”. What a great gift idea! I cannot wait to make these kind of boxes for my friends. It is very difficult to choose only one projects, it’s unbelievable what you and the DT can create!!!!!

  • 206
    Amy Smith says:

    I love everything about this release! Absolutly everything. The projects have all been amazing, even more so than usual for PTI; y’all have really inspired me to make all my own Christmas presents this year! If I had to pick just one, I’d have to say Heather’s make your own sundae kit with the stamped clear address labels on the bowls. So simple to do, yet it adds such a personal touch!

    Joan B says:

    Every single sneak peek is fabulous. But my favorite was Heather’s build a card set. I absolutely adored her simple snowflakes embossed and then painted over with sparkling paints. Easily reproducible and the build a card as a gift is brilliant!

  • 211
    Julie says:

    I found your site just few days ago and I just bought some sets (polka dots, owl, texts), not already received. I’m so impatient.

    I think I will bought the christmas trees set too beacause it’s fabulous what the girls made with. And I really impressed by the card sending kit.

    Hope I received my stamps soon.

  • 212

    I have to say it’s the boards and beams set of add ons – all of the releases are so good – i’m hoping to get the jewish set too even tho i’m not jewish – my family has a lot of jewish connections so that will be really handy!!

    But back to boarda and beams, this is my most favourite set of stamps from anywhere, ever. I am so tickled at the wee wreaths and window decorations – can’t wait to get my hands on it!!

    Keep up the good work!!!!

  • 213
    Elizabeth Beasterfield says:

    Wow! This is so exciting! I haven’t seen all of the sneak peek projects yet, but the one with the ah-ha moment so far was the Merry & Bright set with the interchangable tree parts! Love it! Can’t wait to see everything and hope I win some goodies! Thanks PTI!

    sherid says:

    I been doing a lot of the Nugget Tins lately so my “light bulb” moment was with the fudge in the tin…there are so many other possibilities that I hadn’t thought about. Thanks to you and the design team for all your inspiration-there seems to be a “light bulb” moment everyday.

    Love all of the sets…it’s going to be hard to not push the “I want it all” button this month!

  • 217
    May says:

    Wow. I have always had such anxiety towards holiday cards although I love cardmaking – don’t know if it’s because they are in a sense mandatory cards to make. Anyway, those days are gone since last year, thanks to you guys. Amazing job, as always, and suddenly I am looking forward to holiday cards!

  • 218
    Maureen W. says:

    LOVE this add-on set!! And I am completely blown away by Debbie’s Home for the Holidays card today! The detail is just incredible – it looks like it took forever to cut out all those different elements and her composition is perfect. Love the polka dot paper with the ribbon and everything – just outstanding!!

  • 219
    elisabeth geers says:

    Absolutely loving all you have created – makes me look at Christmas (and Hannukah!) in a whole new light! 3 other girlfriends and I do a holiday card swap each year and your sets have saved me from creative block – I just know we will all be so excited to have inspiration for all of 2009 now! As usual Nichole – you and your homegirls rock! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  • 220
    Laura says:

    Woohoo! Well, up north here it’s been a record cold summer, so I imagine we will be seeing winter sooner than usual…guess that means more time inside to play around in the studio…some new stamps would probably make it less painful..heehee :-)Thanks for all the eye candy!

  • 221
    Pam Crandall says:

    I have to say I really love the Home for the Holiday set. I have always loved the Boards and Beams set and recently purchased it. Can’t wait to get it. My favorite project was the Holiday Planner with this set and that Gorgeous Holiday Paper , just love the colors in the Polka dots. I must have. Now just to mention my house is filled with snowmen also so of course the snow man set is a very close second……
    Love this release…..Love Christmas stamps!!!!

  • 222
    Sheri says:

    Gosh! Decisions, decisions. They are all spectacular. I think I will do Mish’s organizer and try Debbie’s Home for the Holidays idea. That’s a LOT of detail. You all do a great job inspiring all of us and we truly enjoy all of your work. Thanks for sharing the fun!

  • 223
    KathrynH says:

    ALL of it inspires me — I love all the sets — they are so fabulous –
    The one that sticks out though, was the ice cream sundae gift — it’s just too cute!!
    Looking forward to the 15th!

  • 224
    Pat says:

    I was thrilled to see the start of Mazel Tov and can’t wait to see the whole set.
    I’ve wanted to send my Jewish friends nice appropriate cards – and can’t wait!

  • 225
    Kelly R says:

    I absolutely adore christmas. I love the ideas with the jars. I never think to do something like that – but this year I absolutely plan on making homemade chocolates and handstamping the wrapping. Thank you so much for the inspiration!!

  • 226
    Kimberly says:

    Nichole –
    I love ALL of the sets!

    I have to pick Melissa’s Merry & Bright so far .. being my fave! I love the idea of creating different Christmas trees this year!

    Thanks for all of your inspiration,

  • 227
    Abi says:

    It’s too hard to pick a favourite from all the peeks – I *need* them all! I definately liked the Holiday Planner from Mish, it seems like such a fun thing to do ahead of time, cuz I can’t wait for Christmas to start giving gifts – this seems perfect! Thanks for sharing

  • 228

  • 229
    Gay Ferland says:

    OMG! I can’t just pick one stamp set…there are too many favorites! If I had to pick one for today it would be this new one, Home for the holidays because I am looking for an elegant Christmas card to send to my love ones that looks like my home! I love all the inspiration I get when I visit this and design members blogs. All of you do such beautiful and unique creations!! Thanks for sharing, always!

  • 232
    Acie says:

    I liked the bird house idea, i made one straight away. I made it a little bigger though. Im going to put some pot pourri in there and hang it in a room. I also loved Geny Cassady’s cookie jar idea, I have to make one of thouse to. I know you cant do everything at once but id still love to see something yule related.

  • 233
    Alison C says:

    What a difficult decision – I probably have to vote for Melissa’s ‘Merry and Bright #3’, due mainly to the simple but effective techniques used. While not everyone in the world is able to enjoy snowflakes at Christmas (certainly not here in Australia!) the traditional Chritmas tree is universal, and so beautifully done with this set!

  • 234

    I love all the sneakpeaks I have seen so far.I checked out the other blogs as well. Lovely all around. Have a lovely day.

  • 235
    Jen says:

    I’m so excited about this release and this add-on to Boards and Beams!
    The projects that jumped out at me were Niki’s Gingerbread Kit (my family makes a house every year) and Becky’s Snowman Kit (how cute it that).

  • 236

    This release is going to be AWESOME, Nichole! I love Debbie’s lacy snow trim on her house. I really LOVE the Merry and Bright tree set! I can’t wait to see the full set tonight!

  • 240
    Lori says:

    There are not any posts better than the others! Each day I learned something new! Nichole — your creativity never ceases to amaze me! You are SO talented! I love the snowman set the most, although I have contemplated ordering Boards & Beams and now I not only NEED Boards & Beams but the coordinating holiday set to match! Thanks for all the wonderful products! I look forward to checking out your blog every morning!

  • 241

    Not possible to pick just one! I am inspired in one way or another with everything on your site! Cannot wait to order and ink up Made of Snow!!! Thank you Nicole!

  • 243
    Melanie Bray says:

    Oh my goodness…so many amazing things! My head is just buzzing with ideas and I want to first of all sincerely Thank You for such amazing inspiration. The ‘Bat Mitzvah Bank Book & Box’ was my favourite. This simple, yet amazingly versatile book really got me thinking of other occasions that this could be used for…like a cash gift for a wedding, or giving someone spending money for a trip. How did you think of such a neat way to display cash?? It’s just amazing! And I loved the way the simple yet very effective gold border was created. This really finished the project off. Thank you again… your ideas inspire me into action!

  • 244

  • 246
    Lauraline says:

    I love Christmas so I love a lot of products/ideas from this release.
    My favorite set I think will be the snowman, and I love the idea to use wire for the arms and have the snowman pop on the card.

  • 247
    Debbie S. says:

    Can’t wait to get the Home for the Holidays set! I’ve been using the Boards and Beams set to make cards for my realtor friends to give to their clients, so this set will be a great addition. I’ve also fallen in love with the white ink on kraft paper and can’t wait to try that!


  • 248
    KatieTurtle says:

    I am excited about the rustic snowflakes set and the fine tip gold and silver pens! I like that the snowflake set can be adapted for winter use and not just at the holidays.

    Wow! Each release just gets more creative than the one before. Love the additions to Boards and Beams. Your card reflects the holiday spirit beautifully!

  • 252
    ILstamper says:

    I loved the new snowman set & can’t wait to see all of the options it gives for personalizing each one. But what made the little light bulb come on in my head was today’s add on set. I didn’t think I needed the original set, but after seeing all of the wonderful add-ons to make each house look so “holiday ready”, it’s going to have to come home to my house.

  • 253
    Mary Vogel says:

    I think I need the house sets!!! Every sample I have seen is awesome and has such detail! And being in the real estate business, I can certainly put these to good use!

  • 254
    Amanda Angert says:

    I’m so excited to see all the sets when they’re released! I LOVED Lauren’s “Cocoa to Go” idea — what a great (and inexpensive!) gift for a co-worker or teacher! Thanks so much for sharing such fabulous ideas!!

    The gold and silver!!! I LOVE that addition of elegance to the fabulous PTI line!

  • 259
    Shannan says:

    I LOVE the add-ons for Boards and Beams. I had already been thinking of how I could add wreaths to the windows and a garland along the fence. You just made it a whole lot easier!!

  • 260
    Vicki says:

    Oh, goodness… that is a difficult question… way too hard to pick just one project because they are all so inspiring! I love the build a snowman set and card Nicole made, the tree set and card that Melissa made and that decorated Boards and Beams house card by Debbie is truly a work of art. Fabulous job, design team!! Can’t wait for the new release!

  • 261
    Mary B says:

    My favorite project this month so far has to be Debbie’s Christmas house – it is completely gorgeous! The holiday paper and ribbon are must-haves, too. Thanks for the chance to win such generous gifts.

  • 262
    Carole says:

    Oh wow! No way to pick just one but I absolutely love this add on set for Boards and Beams. That was one of my first purchases from PaperTrey and this just expands its versatility to even greater heights! I’m really loving the paper and ribbon choices for this month as well!
    Love all the ideas! Thanks for keeping us inspired!

  • 265
    Suzy says:

    I am right in the process of Christmas project planning. The “light bulb moment” for me was Heather’s Felt Card Kit. I am really into felt lately and just bought a ton of it and was wondering what to do with it. I am going to make felt holiday planners now πŸ™‚


  • 266
    KarinM says:

    Can’t wait for the release. Your ideas are are great. I love the snowman!

  • 267
    Lisa Henke says:

    wow! everything in just wow. I am in love with the ribbon, that sheer shimmery one is gorgeous! I was never really a big gold fan, but you have made it look fabulous on todays card. I think the one project that keeps sticking in my mind is the money holder. What a cute idea and I can see it used for many occassions.

  • 268
    Sara Paschal says:

    I have been so very excited for the Holiday release this year, I have put many SU products on EBAY to gear up for a new stash of PTI.
    My fave has been the snowman that you have showed on your blog, I love the wire arms, great idea. All of the products you have shown have been very inspiring, such great work from yourself and your team.

    My second fave has to be the Merry and Bright, love all of the posibilities with the trees.

  • 269
    Jennifer S. says:

    There have been so many great ideas shown so far. I am especially inspired by the Boards and Beams add-on set. I love the large house, since it looks so much like the house we just bought this summer. We even have a lamppost just like the one in the set. I can’t wait to make my Christmas cards with “MY” house!! Thank you so much for a FANTASTIC release!!

  • 270
    Kathy says:

    Love the holiday windows for Boards & Beams! I won’t know until I have the set in my greedy little hands, but I would try masking the windows, then going back and stamping with the new windows. Then of course I would save the masks so I wouldn’t have to cut them out every time! Gonna have to try it out!

  • 271
    Crafty Math Chick says:

    What an exciting (and expensive! LOL) release this is going to be! So many beautiful sets, so many AMAZING projects.

    I think I am most excited by Mazel Tov’s release. It is unfortunately very rare to find a Hanukkah set at all, let alone one that is GORGEOUS and covers the other Jewish holidays as well. I was delighted by Nichole’s quick and easy marshmallow dreidel treats – can;t wait to try them with your stamp set.

    Thank you all for taking so much time to create so many incredible sets and so many terrific projects with them to inspire us all. They must have taken all of you so long, and we really appreciate your efforts; I have looked forward with anticipation to seeing your new creations every day.

    I am so excited for the end of the day to approach…


  • 272
    Angela says:

    I love the Bar Mitzvah money book that you created! I want to come up with ideas for using it for other events — like a cute poem to use with it when giving cash at a baby shower or wedding shower.

  • 273

    I love the addition set to Boards and Beams and have enjoyed all of the projects posted. I haven’t tried embossing much but feel like I MUST try making all of the snow effects that several of the designers have showcased. Thanks for some awesome releases this month

  • 274

  • 275
    cknutti says:

    I just love the ice cream topping set. So simple, yet so classy. I also think that the Mazel Tov set is just perfect. It is elegant and traditional, but you have put your Papertrey “stamp” on it to make it stylish. Well done, all.

  • 276
    Sheryl says:

    Every day of the “sneak peeks” I’ve thought, “WOW”!!!! ALL the stamps sets are fantastic, but I am desperately wanting that gorgeous paper!!!! Thank You!!!

  • 277
    Sandy Kay says:

    First, I have to say that each and every one has been fabulous! I think the project that has wowed me the most is Heather’s first peek of the snowflake set with the Spring Moss and Kraft – that color combination and the whole layout – everything about it!
    Sandy Kay

    cynthia says:

    Rustic Snowflakes and Home for the Holidays set are my favorites. I love the Home for the Holidays card the best but I really liked Heathers card making kit all wrapped up in felt!!!! I making a primitive quilted wall hanging for a silent auction for our church. I’m going to make a felt card holder and cards to go with it. Thanks so much for all the great ideas. Love Papertrey!!!!! Cynthia

  • 283
    Carol Ann says:

    I love, love, love snowmen so I am definitely going to order that set. I love doing homemade gifts for Christmas and this site always inspires me. I loved Debbie’s fudge idea’ I also liked the cookies in a jar with some cookies already made in the wax-lined bag. Those bags are great!! I could go on and on about all of the products, but I’m sure you get the idea.

  • 284

    Molly B says:

    There are so many talented people on this team it is hard to know where to look first for inspiration. This month I would have to say that I will for sure be making the Cocoa to Go project by Lauren. So many ideas for teachers and swap gifts came to mind immediately. Oh but there was also her frosted glass project. Ok I will stop now. You get the idea. πŸ™‚ -Molly B

  • 306
    Holly Field says:

    The Holiday Paper is so wonderful. I love the colors. My favorite project was the snowman in the box. I am going to adapt it (we’re in NC..not much snow if any) for my daughter’s preschool friends this Xmas and going to do the OTC snowman kits with your bags! I actually stopped myself from buying the lastest Papercraft magazine because I reasoned I get so much great inspiration from the PTI team. Oh yeah, those $ can go to my PTI purchase too:)

    How fun – I love Christmas stamps and cannot wait for the sets to be released. This post now convinces me I need the original Boards and Beams and hope to be ordering that set also. Thanks!

    Your blog is always so inspiring and I wish I could afford all your stamps- the chance to win the release- well the fact that I am # 300 tells me I am not the only one. Your stamps are so versatile and that you and your team are the most creative people I know- my favorite is Mitzvah Bank Book- I am not Jewish, nor do I know anyone who is, but I instantly saw birthday and graduation books from this idea!

    It is IMPOSSIBLE for me to select a favorite set from this release! They are all so beautiful and have so many different potentials for use. I am happy to see the many ways the sets are being used, especially for gift giving. This should really help me check off some names this year on my gift-giving list. Fantastic Job!!

    Barb W says:

    Oh, hard to pick just one!! I am so in love with the sneek peek of Made of Snow. The sneek peek looks just like what I am looking for. I didn’t get Board and Beams before, but know, seeing the addition set, I think this month could be a BIG one. Can’t wait to see it all. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, but want to see it all before I decide on my projects.

    I can’t wait to see the new collection. I am brand new to stamping and am just in love with all of your stamps. I was inspired by the “You’re one crazy cat card” by Debbie Olson and bought Spooky Sweets II because of this. I’m having a Halloween party and it is perfect for that. Keep up the great work and thanks so much for offering free gifts. πŸ™‚

    Wow, you guys have really outdone yourselves! Such creativity! So many wonderful projects – it is definitely hard to choose a favorite but I have to say that the bank book with the bank book box were certainly a favorite – you made it look simply gorgeous! Talk about presentation!! Thanks to all of you for sharing your creative talents – I now start my day EVERY DAY by checking out the ideas that each of you have posted. You never cease to amaze me and I thank you.

    Linda says:

    Now, THIS is a tough assignment! It’s so hard to pick a favorite out of all of these wonderful sets! I continue to be genuinely amazed at the creativity and ingenuity displayed by each of you! If I HAVE to pick one set that I’d have to try, I think it would be Merry and Bright, since as you said, Nichole, it is so versatile. Also, I’m not an experienced stamper, but I think with this set, I could make simple, yet elegant cards.
    (But honestly, all of the sets are simply beautifully designed.)
    Thank you for the opportunity to win – it’s much appreciated!

    Gerri K says:

    It is very hard to choose a favorite. All the sets and projects are great! The Hannukah set is beautiful! Although I am not of that faith, I send these cards to friends and have never seen a set as detailed. But I must admit my ‘got to have’ set is the boards and beams addition set. I love the samples made by you, Mish and Debbie with this set.

  • 339
    Marica says:

    I can’t wait for the release this month… all the sneak peeks and projects you and your team have shown is definitely getting me in the spirit of the holidays (even though it’s only September!). I love all the ideas and inspiration you shared and can’t wait to recreate them for gifts this holiday season! As always, brava ladies!!!

  • 340
    Jessica says:

    Oh my gosh, this is seriously my favorite release yet, it’s so hard to pick a favorite thing I’ve seen so far. I guess I’ll go with a “Duh!” moment I had yesterday – it never occurred to me to cut off one edge of a scalloped Nestabilities rectangle to create a border like you did in your card. So simple and so easy and yet I’ve only ever used the rectangles whole. Thank you for that tip!

    All the holiday releases are wonderful. I like Melissa Bickfords Merry and Bright set with the adorable Christmas trees. I saw the card Michelle Woodson made on her blog in her post Winter Whiteboards. She uses the leaf ribbon and Ranger Glossy Accents on this card and it speaks to me.

    Everyone’s projects and samples have been so amazing … I have been thinking of what I will make my department of teachers at school for the holidays all weekend now! The holiday DP is so beautiful … vintage but still fresh and fun! I am definitely going to make and put to use Mish’s Holiday planner! Maybe even another one just for grocery shopping and use the pocket for coupons! Thanks for putting together another great release!

    wow – awesome holiday stamp sets!!! i love the card that Debbie created using the add on to the board/beams set……..but i also love the Jewish set and the projects created with that!!

  • 352
    Karen Johnson says:

    I am loving all the sets but I specifically have my eye on Melissa’s Merry & Bright set. I’ve always loved the look of tall slender trees at Christsmas time. I loved her simple stamped card from the other day…white cardstock, stamping, some ribbon…that sounds like a great idea for Christmas cards this year. Easy to mass produce.

  • 353
    Ann C. says:

    I love the Boards and Beams additions, and although I don’t have very many Jewish friends, I have to say I have rarely been so impressed as I am with the detail and accuracy of your beautiful Hanukkah set.

  • 354
    Katie D. says:

    My favorite set is definitely the snowman set! I’m so excited to finally get a set with mix and match snowman parts! I also really like Heather’s felt card pouch. So creative and will make a wonderful gift idea!

  • 355
    Michelle says:

    I have to say my favorite is Made of Snow… Growing up in Hawaii snow was never part of my Christmas until we moved to the states. I adore snowman and collect them. But I also LOVE what you did with Boards and Beams and it gives me an excuse to buy it. So I am eagerly awaiting the release. It is definitly tough to pick just one when your design team makes you want them all!!!

  • 356
    Vilmarie says:

    Christmas is my favorite holiday so I am especially excited for this release. There are so many of my favorites, I really like Becky’s build a snowman kit, too cute!! I also like the shimmer blue cardstock and silver combination which would go great for a New Year’s party too! But I think my favorite set will be rustic snowflakes, I love snowflakes! This will be an awesome release, thank you!!

  • 357
    Stephanie Niavez says:

    I’m completely in love with the idea of decorating the house with Christmas style windows and doors. What a wonderful idea ans stamp sets. Thanks for offering great sets.

  • 358
    Lisa Davis says:

    I love the new sets, the papers and the gold ribbons! The projects are really awesome! But I keep thinking about all the possibilities of making the project that Mish made using the frames and the dry erase markers, I mean you could personalize and give these to everyone. I am an assistant teacher, so I could see this project made using an apple stamp, we are always writing notes at our school. I could just go on and on but I won’t. Thanks for the great stamps and ideas.

  • 359
    Dottie K says:

    Wow so many great ideas! I love the snowman set nad your litle pail. Just adorable. I think the fudge in the tin was just a great idea also. So easy and the packaging looks so nice. Thanks for a chance to win. πŸ™‚

    Wendy says:

    My favorite project has to be the snowman. I’ve been hesitant to buy any snowman sets because then I’m *stuck* with the look. Customizing each one is such an awesome idea! I can’t wait to get this set and try it for myself. oh and btw – I’m getting the Home for the Holidays as well as this is my second fave!

    When I saw the wreath on the lampost sneak peak, I thought it might coordinate with the boards and beams. I LOVE the new paper. Can’t wait to see it in person.

  • 363

    I’m always inspired by everything you and your team of awesome designers!! I think I am most inspired by all of the great ideas you ladies have come up with using the Mazel Tov set. Though I only have a few friends that are Jewish, I can see that this could be a really useful set to have on hand. All of the projects, from your money book, to Lauren’d gift basket, I think they’re all amazing. You & the team always do just what you want…make me think “WOW – I can do that!” Awesome job everyone – thank you!!!

  • 364

    I am LOVING the Boards and Beams additions!! And that Holiday Paper is too cute!!

    Bev S says:

    I love Christmas so I love all of the ideas so far, but the Merry & Bright Hot Chocolate gift bag is an idea that I’ll be using this year for gifts. I always make gifts for friends and clients, and this idea has inspired me. I can’t wait to see the unveiling of all the sets!

  • 367
    Marsha says:

    I absolutely LOVE snowmen, I collect all types…resin, woood, plush…and yes, even Snowmen stamps. I have so many snowmen stamps that I could never use them all in one season, but does that stop me from adding more to my collection – absolutely not! Let’s see…my favorties…I love the new Made of Snow set and the ideas shared by Nicole (the snowman arms made from wire are so cute). Heather’s Rustic Snowflakes is wonderful – love the idea of the ice cream sundae gift set. Lisa’s quick and easy cookies in a jar kit is fabulous. Melissa’s Merry & Bright – what a neat set. I love the new Night Sky Shimmer Cardstock…as well as the Holiday Vintage Prints Collection and the new ribbons are fabulous. When it comes right down to it, I love all of the new sets and all of the many creative ideas from the Papertrey Team, it is hard to pick just one! πŸ™‚

  • 368
    Emma F says:

    Wow, I can’t nail it down to one! LOL. I love the snowman, so adorable for the upcoming holidays and also the Boards and Beams ‘add-on’ set … but I got the most inspiration from Nichole’s Jewish set which is just beautiful and fills a much needed void in the market. Congrats Nichole, another winner!

    My favorites sets, so far, have been Made of Snow and Rustic Snowflakes. All the sparkly and shiny ribbons and paper are incredible along with the embossing powders – WoW! It will
    be very easy to choose the I Want It All button! I was especially
    inspired by Heather’s card kit.

  • 371
    Katie Lanouette says:

    I love Michele Wooderson Holiday Planner. Christams is my favorite Holiday but I hate shopping the last 2 weeks before Christmas when the stores are crowded. I am also an organizational freek. So you put these 2 things together and I have to try Michele’s project. I did think all the projects were great by the way.

    Christmas is such a blessed time of the year for me. The smells, the colors, the lights…and most importantly, the family makes it a most memorable time. I wish everyone could have the warm attitude they have during this, THE most special time of the year. There are so many talented ladies here at PTI…it’s a place I dearly love to come to everyday. All the stamp sets are a reflection of a lot of talented ladies.

  • 378
    Loydine says:

    As always, I love all of the new sets. I especially like that you “revisit” some of your previous sets with new additional sentiments or parts. The Boards and Beams Holiday additions are just beautiful! So many details!! And, I think the Merry & Bright set is versatile with absolutely adorable tree combinations. I’m so glad you developed the set for Jewish holidays and it is very classy looking. I’m definitely making the edible dreidels for collegues.

  • 379
    Wendy says:

    I love Melissa’s Christmas set. When ever I think of Christmas, I think of the Christmas tree. How fun it is to decorate the tree and how lovely it makes your house. Melissa’s set is so versatile and it looks so easy to use. I also love the Christmas addition for Boards & Beams. You will be able to make some lovely cards with that set.

  • 382
    Joan E. says:

    So many great ideas in one place, it’s hard to pick just one. When pressed I’d say that it would have to be the add on set to Boards and Beams. That just seems to complete the house. Thanks.

  • 383
    Merry says:

    I absolutely love the “Home For the Holidays” set! Of course your new pattern paper is awesome as always! It is so great that you and your designers take the time to show us different projects with your new products. Keep up the good work!

  • 384
    Tracy says:

    I love the snowman set. I especially liked the hot cocoa gift that Lauren Meader created. I can’t wait to try that for some of my friends for the holidays. What a great gift. This holiday set to go with Boards and Beams is precious too. I need to win one of these sets so I can buy the other one. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance. I can’t wait to see the complete sets.

    I absolutely love watching the count downs every month, and I have been especially looking forward to your holiday sets! This year I think my favorite from the sneek peeks is the SnowMan set! He is super cute and I love the way you have the differnt options for the hats and scarfs without having to mask– an ingenious idea!!!

  • 388
    Stefanie says:

    I have been keeping close tabs on all of the sneak peeks and I’m so over-whelmed!! Everything is so incredible. I love Pine’s snowflakes and all her creations. Melissa did a wonderful job with the coffee gift and Debbie’s details with the Boards & Beams holiday set is outstanding!! How does one choose??

  • 389

    I find your blog so inspirational. I love Christmas related stamps in using them for cards and gifts and you all have certainly outdone yourselves this time! I love the Christmas fudge in a tin as well as the ice cream gift set. Sometimes I am clueless as to what to give as gifts, as we are all so abundantly blessed and you have inspired me to be more creative in that area. I need to start now though, because Christmas will be here soon! My favorite stamp set was the snowflake stamp set and I love the Home for the Holidays one as well! Thank you for such great blog candy and for sharing your ideas with us all.

    Wow! Do I have to pick one favorite?!? I love all of the sets this month and your projects always inspire me! There are several I am going to try for myself. I know the kids in the neighborhood will love the snowballs in the paint can. I always struggle with giving cash in a nice way and I just love your little book to put it in – works perfect for a check as well if it has to be mailed. I’m looking forward to tonight!

  • 392
    Jennifer Scull says:

    all of the projects that I’ve seen have been so beautiful, but the one that really captured my eye was the one done by mytime’s Lauren using the new Jewish faith set. The set is just gorgeous! I also love the new papers and ribbons that you are introducing!

    have a great day!

  • 393

    I am so excited about tonight’s release! More excited than usual, and that’s saying something!!! If I had to pick just one thing I’d go with Melissa’s Merry & Bright set. I can picture using it to make cards, gift tags, gift toppers…endless possibilities.

  • 402
    MaryBB says:

    Wow! This is an amazing release. I love each and every set. I simply can’t pick just one favorite project. They really were all wonderful ladies. Mish’s holiday planner, Niki’s Gingerbread kit & Pine’s felt card holder and all of the projects using Mazel Tov set are what stand out. I’m excited that with Mazel Tov, after 20 years of friendship, I’ll finally be to give one of best friend & her kids meaningful cards.Thanks for that Nicole!

  • 403
    Kim ZumMallen says:

    The additions to Boards and Beams is lovely. I have a hard time around the holidays since the death of my Hannah. This year I am looking to try a heavier dose of the seaon and use my PTI stamps to make Christmas cards. I’m also going to be purchasing the shimmer papers and ribbons for the project. Thank you for such beautifully simple tools to work with.

  • 404
    Debbie says:

    OMG! Pick one that inspires me the most?? Nichole, they ALL inspire me to create! I was definitely one of the people that was hoping for a decorative set for the boards & beams set!! I am so excited to use it…along with the rest of the amazing sets…for my holiday creations! YAY!

  • 405
    Melissa (moster) says:

    To be honest, the Boards and Beams stamp set was not for me. However, after seeing this addition I know I have to get both sets. I absolutely love it!!!

    Are you kidding me? What do I love…where should I start? I LOVE Melissa’s tree set, that you can create all kinds of trees. Your snowman set looks amazing and so does Heather’s snowflake set. I am in real trouble this release. Not to mention all the gorgeous ribbon and paper.

  • 409

    I don’t think I could pick just one …. I love all the peeks so far. You and your team are so talented that I just love the reveals! Thanks for such great ideas!

  • 432
    Susanna says:

    OOOOO!!!!!! I have Boards & Beams and I love it! I know this one will be spread all over my craft table in no time flat!

    The design team here is brilliant. I get so much inspiration from all of their ideas! I’m not sure I could pick a favorite! I really loved Heather’s Christmas Canvas — I would love that for me πŸ˜€ I also really liked Nikki’s Gingerbread House kit (I already give those out for Christmas, but I don’t package it nearly as well). I loved Melissa’s coffee set and Heather’s felt stationary set. How is anyone supposed to pick from this!

  • 433
    donna calamari says:

    I do not make holiday cards. The sets created for PTI, however, are making me drool. I always love everything Heather makes — I love her rustic style and use of kraft paper. Melissa’s samples have been fabulous. She always has ideas for a great layout. Finally, Debbie’s post today is a masterpiece. You are lucky to have so much talent on your team.

  • 434
    Jennifer Bradley says:

    I just love all the new ribbon and of course the pattern paper!!! I think my favorite set will be the snowman set – but who knows – I’m sure I will fall in love with all of them! The project I thought was really cool – was the one using the snowman set for creating a build your own snowman kit – so cute and a perfect project for the holidays!

    Lori H says:

    I have really enjoyed everything from this month’s sneak peaks. One “trick” that intrigued me was Nicole’s tip to use the Pallette New Canvas pad to distress or tone down bright colors. I have used this tip twice now and love it! Thanks for the great idea!

  • 442
    mary p. says:

    You are such an inspiration to me! You create such wonderful pieces, and what is so great (and why I faithfully check your blog everyday) is that you don’t do just cards – you create ensembles that are so thoughtful, anyone would be honored to receive them. I can’t wait to see the new releases!

  • 445
    annheidel says:

    Am I allowed to answer ALL of them? πŸ™‚ I have been thoroughly impressed with the sheer variety and amount of projects with this sneak peek. The build-a-snowman kit and gingerbread house kit ideas were standouts for me, but I also loved all the other ideas for gift giving and the beautiful cards. So my answer really needs to be EVERYTHING! And I’m really thrilled about the addon set for Boards & Beams!

  • 446
    Jeni Barbas says:

  • 449
    Tracy says:

    Wow Nichole, it’s hard to pick just one inspirational project. You wow me every month!

    I’d have to say what you and Lauren did with the build-a-snowman set were AMAZING! And I love Becky’s kit, too. I am most anxious to get my hands on that set this month, although I’ve loved all of the peeks so far.

  • 450

    I LOVE all of the new peeks. Christmas is my favorite time of year and you have really outdone yourselves this year! I really like the look of the Rustic Snowflakes set. Can’t wait to see everything!

  • 451
    Sharon King says:

    Oh my! how do you possibly choose one of the sets. They all are awesome. If I have to choose I would go with Merry & Bright and Made of Snow…but then all of them are great and have certainly got my wheels turning for Christmas gifts and cards. The ribbon and pattern paper is fabulous too!
    Thanks for the chance to win one of the sets.

  • 452

    Kathyc on SCS says:

    As always, I have loved all the projects shown so far. I feel like most of them are just so ‘do-able’! Geny Cassady’s Cookies in a jar project using Heather’s snowflake set REALLY grabbed me! I am hoping to make these for my co-workers this year. Thanks to all for your fabulous work!

    Wow! All your ideas have been fantastic, but I think I love the marshmallows all rolled up, with your hot chocolate mix. I think that’s a great gift idea for a co-worker…gives me lots of inspiration.

  • 459
    Mindy says:

    I’m not sure I could pick just one, but my favorite has to be the snowmen. I love snowmen at Christmas, but also they are great for after the season. I have really enjoyed all of the set this time and can’t wait to use them in person!

  • 460
    MeShellaBella says:

    I have loved all the ideas that I’ve ever seen the Design Team (and you, Nichole!) make with Boards and Beams! For me that set is like a dollhouse…on steroids! I mean, with all the different colors of cardstock, markers, paper…..LOVE it! I love your idea of stamping the house on solid and then just the windows/door on white to color them in! WOW! How simple! I love to paper piece and think this is a SUPER idea! Thanks for all the fun!

  • 461
    Natalie says:

    The wreath inspired me the most. This symbol has such significant meaning. I had seen a card made with a door on it and the door was decorated with a wreath. I’ve always wanted to make a Christmas card like it.

  • 462
    LizzyM says:

    Wow! I love just about everything I’ve seen in this upcoming release. It’s so amazing! I think my favorite project I’ve seen showcased has been your Ice Cream Sundae gift. It was not only adorable but extremely clever, too. I’m totally going to have to use your idea this holiday season!

  • 463
    Karen says:

    As always I love so much more than I can afford, but I’ll be ordering Merry and Bright for sure. I’ve gotten lots of good ideas from the blogs (I think I read them all!), but I love the way the snowflakes have been embellished with bling!

  • 464

    For me it was your Hanukah projects – that money book absolutely fascinated me and your projects were beautiful!!!

  • 467
    Nancy says:

    You are making this too hard, how can anyone pick just one of the project when they are all so special. Since I have always loved Lauren Meader’s work, I guess I will pick the Rosh Hashanah basket. I know this release will be super. Can’t believe there will be 15 lucky winners, thanks for the opportunity to win.

I love love love love the snowman stamp set. Did I say I love it? I think snowmen are the best men ever and I cannot wait to get this set and some rock-a-blocks to go with it. The paper and cardstock are so yummy looking. I have my Christmas card all designed in my head!!!

  • 470
    Sarah C. (WAstamper on SCS) says:

    I love everything, but I think the first project I will try to case is Heather’s canvas project. I am always looking for new ways to present the grandparents with pics of their grandkids. I think this will be perfect for Christmas. Thanks again for all the inspiration!

    This is cruel and unusual punishment…picking a favorite from all the great posts from everyone is too difficult. Christmas is my favorite stamping holiday and I love everything I’ve seen in all the countdown posts. I’ve been inspired to get busy with the holiday season right now…there are enough great projects that I should just stamp Christmas all year. Can’t wait for tomorrow to see it all (and make a big dent in my pocketbook!)

    I can’t decide which set is my favorite. This makes getting ready for the holidays fun. I always think of holiday shopping as a chore with the crowds and long lines. I am more of an online type of gal. The projects that I have seen give inspiration for a new kind of gift giving. I really enjoyed the way the tree set can be mixed and matched.

    I love you Bank Book Cover. That one I’m definitely going to make in the near future.
    I love Lauren’s etched glass technique on her blog. What a great gift idea. Gena’s ‘cookies in a jar’ look really fun to make, too. Oh, using the glassine bags in the CB looks like a fun idea to try.

    Your site (and your design members) oozes creativity and I just love it!

    Thank you for everything!!!

    I haven’t seen anything I didn’t like and that didn’t wow me. I am constangly amazed at the creative minds that keep putting forth these wonderful creations, and so very glad that you willingly share it with us.

I love birds and this little house is just too cute not to make and share with special people on my Christmas list.

    I really love the Boards and Beams stamp set. There is no better feeling than being a new homeowner. My husband and I purchased our first home in July and we finally have a true sense of being “at-home”. We’ve lived in many a home thanks to the military and its finally nice to say were settled…at least for a few years that is! I especially love the sample you did for “Home for the Holidays”…those are the exact colors of my new home!

  • 533
    Annie says:

    I just love the build a snowman set and the versatility that it portrays. Lauren’s cocoa carrier set is the cutest. I will incorporate this set many times in my holiday creations. I have to say that your blog is such a creative source and always inspires me to think outside the box. Thank you.

    Sara Spencer says:

    I love all the ideas posted on your blog. I can’t wait to make my own Ice Cream treat basket for my family for Christmas. So cute!!

    Now I’m wondering if the add on to the B&B set will have only Christmas decorations, or will it have things for the fourth of July and Easter and Halloween? Think of the possibilities!


  • 538
    Bridget says:

    I love creating gifts for friends and family and I’m SOOOOO excited to use all the new sets to do just that!! I cannot wait to get my hands on that little snowman set..It just looks like there are sooo many possibilities to do with the little guy or gal!!

    What a great idea to spruce up the house for the holidays! I love it! Those new papers look great! I’m looking forward to seeing all the new stamp sets!!!

  • 541
    Maureen says:

    Wow! There are so many yummy things to love this month! I love so many, but the one that jumps out is Heather Nicols card “May you never forget” made with Rustic Snowflakes and Aqua Mist. I love how the colours work together and although I have many snowflake stamps, she has convinced me to get this set and has given me one of my Christmas card designs!! THanks, Heather!! The silver products are delicious as well, especially the ribbon!!

  • 542
    Tracy says:

    Altho I loved the birdhouse decoration from last week, the windows cut out for todays design reminded me of that technique, which I have never tried (being a very boring stamper so far). I am going to try stamping certain elements and then cutting them out and layering them up to see how it looks. Thanks for another great countdown.


  • 543
    Brenda says:

    Great idea, I love the idea of being able to make up your own house design, so at the moment I am feeling very inspired by this project (if I just had the stamps). The new stamps look great so far, I can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you for the chance to win.

  • 544
    Loydene says:

    Because I co-host an annual retreat themed with snowflakes and snowmen — I absolutely LOVE the new snowman set with the seasoned snowflake set!
    But – I have to admit that I’ve told more “virtual friends” about the new Jewish themed set – friends looking for a grown up look for their special celebrations!

  • 545
    Leslie says:

    Hi, I can’t wait for midnight! and the chance at a free set! Looking forward to getting into the holiday spirit with the new stamps!

  • 546
    Joanne Boys says:

    My favorite seems to be the additional elements for the Boards and Beams Set – “Home for the Holidays”. I am also so excited about “Mazol Tov” as I have very good friends that are jewish and I struggle at Christmas time not to offend them, yet include them.

    All the extra items like the filigree embossing powder and metallic pens are wonderful. Everything one needs for a project at PTI quality.

  • 547
    Catherine says:

    My favorite time of the year and i’m loving what i see…well, that’s every month anyway =) Thanks for the chance!

  • 548
    Laura G. says:

    Every month I look forward to the countdown because I know I will be amazed once again by the fantastic projects highlighted…I am never disappointed. This month you have outdone yourself once again, Nichole! I love snowmen, but if I had to pick just one, it would definitely have to be Mazel Tov. It promises to be an absolutely beautiful set, but the sentiment behind how it was thought out and created really touched my heart. As someone of the Jewish faith, I have been wanting a set like this for the longest time and know this one promises to be everything I am looking for.

    Julie S. says:

    I TOTALLY love that christmas set!

    Kacey says:

    The projects that inspired me the most this release were the personalized ice cream set and Heather’s felt covered card set – I loved them both and totally plan to make my own versions for gifts this holiday. I can not wait! The possibilities are truly endless with this release – I am so excited! Way to go PTI team πŸ™‚

  • 551
    Terry says:

    Oh My Gosh! I’m not sure I can pick just one set or project. They’re all great. I love the build a snowman set, and Merry & Bright is just WONDERFUL! Debbie’s card using the Home for the Holidays set has really inspired me to use this set for my holiday cards. I’ve never done it before, but I may be using that “I Want it ALL” button tonight.

    Christmas is my favorite time of year! I’m loving all the new Christmas and Winter stamp sets and papers. I’m also looking forward to making candies and I’m defiantly going to try the new one (at least to me) that Nichole posted. Yummy!!

  • 555
    Jackie says:

    I love everything I have seen so far and that paper is gorgeous! My favorite so far, though, is Michelle Wooderson’s Holiday Gift Ensemble. I think it would make a wonderful gift and looks fairly easy to do, which is important during all of the holiday madness!

  • 556
    cindy b says:

    Each month I can’t wait until the few days before the 15th of the month, so I can be inspired by all the VERY creative items by your team designs. I have come to love every stamp set you release, this month christmas is one of my favorites! The project that inspired me the most was the Holiday Planner. It is such a great idea to help prepare for the holidays and such a cute way to do it! Thank you for all your hard work and the wonderful quality stamps you provide.

  • 557
    Tracey Adams says:

    There’s no way I can pick one special project from the peaks this week! They are all so fabulous! Nichole, you’re amazing and the rest of the team offered so many great ideas as well. I think the set I’m most looking forward to is Made of Snow and the new paper and ribbon!! And I’ll just have to make a couple of the sundae baskets for friends this year!! Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration!!!!!

  • 558
    Sarah says:

    Wow!! I’m super excited, on top of the cold I have, this is the most excitement I’ve had a few days now! What a great idea! I hope I’m one of the lucky winners.. I would love to own a set from Papertrey!

  • 559
    veronica says:

    i love the way the paper piecing looks, for example your windows with the extra touch. i see this on lots of cards, but when i sit down to stamp, it seems like i forget to actually do this. it looks great. and that is one thing i would like to do more.

  • 560
    Annapurna says:

    Mazel Tov is the only one that spoke to me this release. I don’t remember seeing this kind of set from any company. I am not Jewish myself, but have friends that are and it will be nice to have something that speaks to them. They probably get tired of people wishing them Merry Christmas and getting Christmas cards πŸ™‚

  • 561

    I love the card kit that Heather made!! I make card sets as gifts and this is PERFECT for Christmas cards!! I Love it!!
    However, all of the sets I have seen so far are unbelievable…you have outdone yourself as usual!!

  • 562
    Kris Tolman says:

    Lauren Meader’s Hot cocoa cups really inspired me. I have to make some of those! I also really liked Melissa’s use of the Shimmerz paint and have to get some of that to play with. The Snowman set has WOW’d me!!! I think that set is a MUST have! I also can’t wait to see more of the accessory set for Boards and Beams. You guys really have out done yourself this month! Thanks. πŸ™‚

  • 563
    jacqueline31 says:

    WOW, so many inspiration on one site! I love, love, love the snowman in ‘Made of Snow’ and the rustic snowflakes. The polka dot paper is also a must have! Can’t wait for tonight!!! Thank you for SO many great holiday ideas!

    Love the new house stamp set … Great for someone moving to a new home for an “open house” card … also so many possibilities for a wonderful christmas card to send to family and friends “my home to your home”
    … thanks for sharing

  • 567
    Sammie says:

    All of you and your design team’s creations are so inspiring that it’s hard to choose, but one that sticks out in my mind is the baby shower favors, especially the “It’s About Time” timer favor by Jennifer Ellefson. So clever!

  • 568
    Diane Schultz says:

    I just love the “No Place Like Home” card. The holiday set which fits with Boards & Beams is just great. This will fit just great with my Christmas mini album. I can’t begin to tell you what all this inspiration has done to my creativity. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas and inspiration.

  • 569
    Jen Caputo says:

    You ladies have just blown me away this month, everything has been amazing! My favorite card was the one Pine did the other day with the twinkling h20s over the embossed snowflakes. I saved it to my harddrive to CASE as soon as I get my mitts on those stamps πŸ™‚ That card was just so simple and stunning and I can’t wait to put my own spin on it!

    Saltycatcco says:

    I love all of the ideas on this blog! So many times I look at a set and think “Now what am I going to do with that?”, only to see an idea here that has me losing sleep until I get the set just to try the idea! Keep up the great work!

  • 580
    Val S says:

    I have enjoyed seeing all the wonderful ideas presented for the sneak peeks. There were a couple of ideas that really sparked my imagination, especially your gift of the Sundae baskests…really neat idea! Another idea that really caught my eye was Heather Nichols Holiday Card Mailing Kit. I can think of a couple of people to send that to. Thanks for all the fabulous ideas. They have certainly sparked the Holiday creative juices!!

  • 581
    Jacki says:

    Nichole – you have done it again – made me love everything you have shown! I love the clean, simple but gorgeous images you and your team have created. I love the patterned paper….love the gold embossing. Love it all!

  • 582

    All the ideas are absolutely wonderful. I have just started making cards with the Boards & Beams set so I would have to say the holiday dress up package would have to be what has really caught my eye!!

  • 583
    connie says:

    Oh my, I can even big to pick my favorite card or project – but I have to tell you the accessory set for Board?Beams is just pure genius! I have wanted that set since the beginning but now this accessory set makes it a must-have. What great inspiration comes from this blog. It is always one I check first. Happy Holidays!

  • 589
    Lolita says:

    I can’t pick one. All the ideas you presented are wonderful. Lauren’s hot cocoa carrier and cups was just too cute. The ice cream gift set is over the top. That one I will make for my in-laws this Christmas. Thank you for all the inspiration and the tools to make beautiful gifts throughout the year.

    Kathy W says:

    Debbie’s Home for the Holidays card really inspired me with her coloring and adding textured snow. It reminds me of decorating gingerbread houses! Very fun to add the accents to Boards & Beams, and a great way to start thinking of ways to decorate for the holidays! Thanks for the chance to win.

    Bonnie aka raduse says:

    Oh how cool! I love driving around town too and seeing all the Christmas wreaths hanging on the doors, not to mention decorating my own door. I’m so excited about the Mazel Tov set you’re releasing since I have a Jewish friend and can’t find stamps to send cards to her with. I totally love the dridels you made, and the basket Lauren made with the set.

  • 605
    Cindy E says:

    I {heart} your blog and look at it all the time for inspiration and ideas. I really enjoyed Saturdays post and the blog hop to youur DT websites. The ideas were all wonderful. I cant pick just one! I can tell you I have made two birdhouse decorations from a previous week and one is a Christmas one and one autumn. Adorable!

  • 606
    Ginny Schleich says:

    I just love all of the awesome projects that everyone designed. With the economy the way it is and the tight budget, I’m leaning towards homemade gifts this year and you and your design team have come up with some awesome gift giving ideas! I love all of the stamp sets! Couldn’t pick a favorite there. If I have to pick a favorite project…it would have to be Melissa’s coffee gift. But I think I am going to use many of the gift giving ideas that were shown. Thanks, to you and your team!

  • 607
    Katie - Fiskateer #4052 says:

    I am sooo excited about these new releases! They all embrace the spirit of the season. I adore Made of Snow and can imagine lots of cards I could make with that cute little snowman. I also love Rustic Snowflakes…how adorable! Actually, all of the sets are awesome… you’ve truly outdone yourselves! Here’s hoping I win!

  • 611
    Monique says:

    I don’t know where to begin … so much has inspired me this time around. The simple fact that you created the unique Mozel Tov set is very pleasing to me. The project that you created making the edible dreidels is without a doubt, spectacular. I was equally intrigued by Lauren’s Rosh Hashanah gift basket, so beatifully put together! I have not ordered in so long because of the increased shipping charges to Canada, but let me tell you … spending the extra shipping will be WELL WORTH IT! Thanks Nichole for all that you do.

  • 612
    Jennifer says:

    Wow, what a great card! I love the new set preview and the paper too. Can’t wait for the release!!

    I love this time of year – starting September through the New Year. In addition to the holidays, my husband & I both have our birthdays, plus our boy’s birthdays and our anniversary! The fall season in general – crisp air, changing colors & Halloween is my absolute favorite!

  • 613
    Louise Glynn says:

    I love the Home for the Holidays additions and will definitely be getting them to use on cards. I also really like the Holiday designer paper. My favorite colors!

  • 614
    Dale B. says:

    To pick a favorite would be very difficult with this release. Perhaps “home for the Holidays”, maybe the “Rustic Snowflakes”, perhaps “Merry & Bright”, oh heck, they are all fantastic, waiting for the release is very difficult this time. Debbie Olsons “Home for the Holidays” is a good inspiration. Thank You for all that you do. All the designs are so refreshing. I am so addicted to PaperTreys products.

  • 615
    Amy says:

    It’s all so inspiring! But I think what really struck me was using the wire for the snowman’s arms. It made me start thinking about what else I could use that wire with. Love it!

  • 616

    I love the new Mazel Tov set(s)! I sell my hand-stamped cards at craft shows and I am always looking for beautiful holiday stamps for my Jewish friends! You made a beautiful set and I am sure that everyone who uses it will be very pleased.

  • 617
    Jenn says:

    AWESOME! What a great idea πŸ™‚ That would be a fun set to use. What a great release day tomorrow.

  • 618
    Tiffani Hughson says:

    I of course love seeing your cards, but I also enjoy when you throw in a recipe or a sewing project (something alternative to use our stamps on/with)…After your instructions for making the fabric tote bags I had to make a run to Hancock fabrics to make my own. Your ideas are ALL inspiring! Thank you…

    I love the paper and I can’t wait for the snowman set!!

  • 620
    Cheryl B. says:

    I really can’t pick one thing that inspires me because it all inspires me. Unfortunately for me, whenever I do get inspired nothing usually comes of it because I keep all my stamping stuff at my sister’s and by the time I have any stamping time and can get to her house, I am just overwhelmed with all the projects that I want to do.

  • 621
    Alice says:

    The different kinds of windows are a neat idea. It is almost as fun as decorating my dollhouse for the holidays.

  • 622

    I love all the sneak peaks I’ve seen so far. It’s going to sooo hard to pick since I can’t “have it all”. I will definitely be trying the snowball truffles. Those are toooo cute!

  • 623

    I love all of the ideas so far but I must admit being a dessert person and I really, really love Geny’s cookie jar, Debbie’s fudge, Melissa’s coffee and Mishs’ wipe board ideas.

    Bee says:

    The set (and related projects) that touched me the most (and got me most excited!) is “Mazel Tov!”. It is gorgeous and fills such a big void in the stamping market!β™₯ πŸ™‚

    Kim says:

    Heather Nicols idea for the holiday mailing kit was just awesome. I can totally see it for birthdays, grandparents day, teacher appreciation day and all the little days you just forget about. Love, love, love that idea.

    Rachael says:

    My favorite projects (this time around) are Heather Nichols rustic snowflakes – card sending kit. I loved the felt card keeper! And Geny Cassady’s cookies in a jar kit!

  • 642

    It’s hard to pick! I’m probably most excited about Home for the Holidays… love the samples made by Nichole and Debbie. I also love the snowman set… Nichole’s sample is lovely, and I also liked Becky’s project… so cute! And Merry & Bright is really growing on me, especially after seeing Debbie’s sample. So many stamps, so little time!

  • 643
    Tamara says:

    I love the new sets. For me, the biggest WOW moments were Niki’s gingerbread house kit, and Becky’s snowman kit. I LOVE them both. I have actually purchased a snowman in a bag as a gift before, and Becky’s kit made me realize *I* can do that at home. I can also see how much fun it would be to give, and receive, a gingerbread house kit. These are now both on my Christmas list. Thanks for all of the inspiration.

  • 644
    Jessica says:

    I love the Christmas “cracker” with the marshmallows rolled up inside. That’s such a cute idea to go with hot cocoa. The snowman set is my favorite of the holiday sets.

    Cyndi says:

    Boy, you guys really pulled out all of the stops this month–I am just in awe!!!!!! The projects and gift ideas are just phenomenal, and I just appreciate SO much the fact that you all are willing to share your talent and creativity with all of us!! Thank you to each and every one of you. I would have to say that my overall favorites are the snowball truffles made with the Made of Snow set, and the coffee gift set made with Merry and Bright. I can’t wait to share these gift ideas this year!

  • 646
    Mendi says:

    I have loved all of the wonderful holiday ideas! I am so excited about this release! I have to say that I am partial to Michelle’s ideas and loved her Christmas planner idea. I have just got to make one for myself!

    Heather B. says:

    Gosh, I am so excited about everything! The projects by the design team and by you are just AWESOME! I love the bank book idea since I tend to give money for gifts. Thanks so much for the chance!

    So many cute sets and great ideas this month! A few things I LOVED were embossing the glassine bags with the Cuttlebug folder, the little rhinestone flower on the bullnose clip, as well as the gift ideas that Lisa, Michelle and Becky shared. All the fun stuff is getting me excited to work on my Holiday projects!!!

    Oh my gosh! My list keeps growing! I love all the holiday cardstock and ribbon. I also love snowflake stamps, so that set is a must have! The designer paper is also on my list. I’m not sure where to stop! Thank you for always coming up with exactly what I need (oops – want!!!)

  • 651
    Melissa says:

    Oh, to choose just one thing that inspires me? This latest unveiling to complement Boards & Beams is going to be so awesome. I just LOVE that set. Nichole, your creativity astounds me. Thank you for all that you and the team do to keep bringing us these great releases!

  • 652
    Yvonne says:

    Gosh, I love all the projects you’ve shown! One of my older favorite is the Piece of Cake that is on my wish list. So much can be done with that! For the newer ones, I love the Let It Snow. I’m thinking I need to start my Christmas cards soon!

    Carol B says:

    Boy, I sure do love the Boards and Beams set…I’d love to win it and add the Home for the Holidays set. Today’s card is by far my favorite of the release sneak peak. Thanks for the opportunity to play!

    Bobbie says:

    Hi Nichole!
    Love the stamp sets. I like that you have taken various artists and made their work into awesome stamps! That is such an honor and not many small people can get that done. Thanks so much for giving all these wonderful ladies a chance to show us their work!

    Bobbie *Ü*

    ~Lana B~ says:

    Your card is fantastic…but my fav is Debbie’s w/ the Boards and Beams…that is a real WOW card! Something to do only for those really special people that appreciate it…like my mom. πŸ™‚ Thanks for all your sharing. Keep up the awesome work!!!!!!!!

  • 658

    I LOVE this Home for the holidays card. The stamp set looks wonderful. Can’t wait to see what the others do.

  • 659
    Jeni Benson says:

    Two of the projects you made for this release will work as great ideas for my Christmas projects this year.

    I just loved the idea of the Bat Mitzvah Bank Book & Box. This idea will work perfect for those I give money to instead of a gift. I never know what to do with it because I want them to feel as though they are opening something as well. This will work perfect.

    I also loved the favors you made using the glassine bags. I’m in charge of making the favors for our Christmas meal each year. These are so simple & inexpensive yet so adorable. They are also another great way to put that Cuttlebug to use. I can’t wait to play around with these bags & see what I can come up with.

  • 660
    Amy says:

    Wow I can’t wait to see what the new releases are. I love how the “decorated” house for Christmas!!! New releases here we come!!! πŸ™‚

  • 662
    Mary Wilson says:

    I love all the ideas at Papertrey. My favorite is the gold and silver paper and pens. There is so much that can be done for the holiday season, which is fast aproaching. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new goodies.

  • 663
    sarita says:

    i am so glad that i “found” papertrey ink earlier in the has changed my life..i have been to just about everyone’s blog – and have become a better stamper because of the blogs! and the good “vibes” between everyone at the forum is very uplifting. What a wonderful thing to have – creativity and caring “friends”. Thank you to everyone at the forum for sharing your ideas,jokes,families and prayers…

  • 664
    Kathy V. says:

    Gosh, I’m not sure it’s possible to select a favorite. They’re all wonderful. Guess that means I’ll have to try it all. Thanks for the quick picks–at least that part will be easy! Now as to which project idea to try first….

  • 665
    barontwo says:

    Wow! That’s all I can say….I love everything. I guess I will just have to be broke this month!

  • 666
    Jolene says:

    I’m excited about all of the new sets. If I had to pick a favorite, I would choose Rustic Snowflakes. Your sneak peeks and projects are getting me excited to start my Christmas cards!

  • 667
    Shannon says:

    I LOVE the home for the holidays card-so gorgeous! All the designers have outdone themselves with the gift ideas.

  • 668
    Josiane says:

    I appreciate the thought that went into the stamp set designs. For example, for the Made of Snow set, the options are endless: 2 snowman bodies, 4 heads, 4 faces, 6 scarf designs? Wow! So cool that you always listen to customer feedback – love that you created the Home of the Holidays set so we can decorate the Board and Beams set.

    Thanks so much!

  • 669
    Angela K says:

    Wow, I love so many of the ideas, but I think Lauren’s hot cocoa to go was my most favorite, but it could also be Michelle’s holiday planner or the beautiful felt card keeper from Heather! Can’t wait for tonight!!

  • 670
    katherine (beadfreak22) says:

    Wow! I am tremendously inspired by all of the beautiful handmade gifts you’ve shown here! I’m especially WOWed by the extraordinary ways you’ve come up with to package the sugary treats. Yum! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

    I LOVE thhe Bild a Snwman stamp set….because I just adore snowmen!

  • 672
    Terri Moore says:

    I love all the sets but my favorite is the Jewish Holiday one. The projects that inspired me the most were Pines snowflake card that went with her cardmaking set, Laurens Rosh Hashanah basket and your Jewish holiday projects especially the marshallow dreidels.

  • 673
    Barb B says:

    Another winning release. They just keep getting better and better. My favorite holiday memory was a Christmas eve when my father took my brother, sister and I out for a drive to see the Christmas lights. My mother said she wanted to stay home and take a warm bath. When we got home “Santa” had come and all the gifts were under the tree. My mom told us she “thought she heard something” while she was in the bathtub and was so surprised when she finished and saw all the presents. We believed every word!

    Leeann says:

    I am so inspired by the September line. PTI is my old, new favorite!

  • 675
    misse336 says:

    I love the idea of using the cuttlebug folders to dress up the bags you put treats in. I’ve never thought to do that and now I have to try it out!

  • 676
    Bekka says:

    I have loved them all πŸ™‚ But if you forced me to choose it would have to be the three tiered Christmas Trees in white on craft – just scrummy

  • 677
    Kathy says:

    The house set is so cute. I like the idea of being able to change out parts of it, like the windows and such. Very clever.

  • 678
    Katie Skiff says:

    Oh man word, every time I stop by I have a light bulb moment. Seriously, I wonder how you all think up such creative ideas. I was really inspired by the way Melissa used the trees on the Kraft with white. That was so beautiful.
    Thanks Nicole!!

  • 679
    Crystal M says:

    I loved all the projects – but I think the one that really made ‘the light bulb’ go off for me was the mailing card kit that Heather had on her blog. I loved the colors she used, but I think the idea is so easy to duplicate and very versatile. I can see myself making several of these for the holidays. Thanks PTI design team for some amazing ideas.

    I can’t wait to see heather’s new stamp set revealed. I think I am waiting for that one the most, along with melissa’s! All projects are great, as usual…but the one I am drawn to the most is the wrapped marshmallows, simple, quick and very effective. Thanks for showing such great work month after month! Love it all!

    thanks..michele h..

  • 681
    Sara L says:

    Only picking one is very hard. I think I like the snowmen the best. I also really liked Heather’s Rustic Snowflake Canvas project. I thought those would be great gifts for the grandparents.

  • 682
    Charmaine says:

    I love Christmas and can’t wait for this month’s release. Since it’s my birthday month…I think I deserve the right to buy a few extra presents for myself don’t you? πŸ™‚

    I think one of the projects that struck me was one that was done by Pine…it was the card sending kit. I knew right away that was something I could recreate with ease.


  • 683
    Jan Brooks says:

    My favorite new release? Gosh! I love all of them, but have to say the cards that Debbie Olson and You have made with the “Home for the Holidays” set, (additon to “Boards & Beams”), made me squeal with joy! I new instantly, that Debbie’s creation was going to be my Christmas card for this year. I can’t wait for the release tonight! I’m sure I’ll be getting more than one set. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for your wonderful creations,

  • 687
    peggysue says:

    All of the projects are cool but I especially like the 3-D projects because they feel so intimidating but when you’ve got step by step instructions all of a sudden they seem easy and possible! Cuts down on the stress level! I liked the little packets for “Next Year in Jerusalem” and the set for the dining room table. Great ideas!

  • 688
    shelly says:

    Wow…I cannot wait for tonights reveal, the sneak peeks already have me wanting it all! I loved the Christmas Card kit, and the Ice Cream Gift Basic! The Design Team has done an amazing job!

  • 689

    Home for the Holidays has inspired me to make my own Christmas cards. I keep telling myself that I am going to do it, but this set really makes me feel that this is the year it will happen.

  • 690
    Tonya says:

    I am adoring the snowman set and love the rustic snowflakes. However, as far as the projects I have seen the last couple of days…that house card of Debbie’s had my jaw dropping all the way to the floor. Her attention to detail is purely amazing!!!!

  • 691
    Linzi says:

    I loved Michelle’s planner–she’s one of my favorites, so I guess I’m partial.

    Ooh, pick me, pick me for the fun blog candy! Thanks for sharing…

    Nicole –
    You continue to amaze me – I love all of the sets! The idea of making Boards and Beams a Christmas set is sheer genius – and I love that you created a set I can use for my Jewish friends…I just can’t wait to play with them all!

    anita says:

    I was most inspired by the Mazel Tov projects featured on the blog. I found those projects to be just so unique and unlike anything I had ever seen. I also loved the christmas tree cards in non-traditional pinks and greens. Let’s face it though…I loved everything that I’ve seen regarding this release so far!

  • 701
    Patti says:

    Wow, really excited for these sets. The Rustic snowflakes will be great!

  • 702
    Dawn says:

    As many others have said, there are so many great ideas this month. I really love many of them. One that I I hope to do myself is the gingerbread house box. I think it’s a great idea and I really enjoy using the egg boxes.

  • 703
    Kimber says:

    Each month you and the design team come up with the most amazing projects. I don’t know how you girls do it! I wish I had an ounce of your craftiness.
    I love the new addition to Boards & Beams. It’s not the holidays without garland and wreaths on my home, putting them up each year gets me into the spirit. So this set is a must for me.
    Another great release!!

  • 704
    Pauline says:

    Debbie, I love all of your designs. I don’t own Boards & Beams but after seeing what you and Debbie have done with this set and the add on, I just have to have it. The snowman set also intrigues me because I love snowmen. And of course love the designer paper this month too. Thanks for the inspirations every month.

  • 705
    Chris R. from Iowa says:

    Two words – “Sensory Overload” as my husband would say. I can smell and taste the cocoa,fudge and the smoke from the chimney, feel the cold snowflakes on my face and hear the crunch of the new fallen snow! Definitely the feeling of winter approaching! A chance to win a set – oh my – how to choose? – but just give me the chance to do so! Thanks for all the creativity. Your team is SO talented.
