By the time you read this David & I will have arrived safe and sound in Orlando.  I'm really looking forward to all of the hustle & bustle of booth prep on Thursday!  I can hardly wait!  I have one more little peek to share with you today that showcases a BRAND new item that Papertrey is debuting at CHA! (Don't worry, if you aren't going to the show, it will be available online soon too!)  I don't want to give too much away, so this peek is pretty abstract, but I would love to hear your guesses!

Peek 1

And I thought I would leave you with a parting shot of the contests of the trailer.  To think this is JUST the booth!  We had to hire a semi-truck to bring all of the merchandise separately from Ohio!

The truck

Today I'll be attending the actual CHA show that is for industry members only.  Looking forward to hanging out with my girls, getting a grasp on industry trends and all that fun stuff!  I'll be sure to take photos and share them with you tomorrow!

    I’m so excited!

    I may be way out in left field with this one, but I’m thinking something along the lines of “pink” as in, breast cancer awareness. Is PTI joining the fight against this terrible disease? I can’t wait to see more, and I’m do heartbroken that I won’t be joining you all at CHA!

    Thinking maybe it’s a cd with font for printing out whatever words one wishes….Maybe I’m off base…hard to tell!

    nancy n says:

    This is going to sound crazy, but is it a starter kit for selling Papertrey through direct sales. Papertrey consultants WOW that would be awesome.

    Hope you have tons of fun and success! Looking forward to August’s reveal!

    ElizabethB says:

    I am guessing markers also. It looked like you colored a stamp and Copics won’t do that. 😉 It also looked like you could have handwritten part of the note. I love the turquoise color.

  • 10
    nina says:

    Hmm, my first guess was markers too… that would be very cool!

  • 11

    Is it fabric covered paper…linen paper, textured paper?

    Wait…is it NEW TURQUOISE and
    NEW ORANGE color??

    This is tough!

    We’ll know soon!

  • 12
    Steph says:

    Lots of good guesses so far…………..could it be digital stamps and fonts??? Looks like fun!

    Cindy Holshouser says:

    RUB ONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 14
    calliezant says:

    The turquoise and orange colors are new(and long awaited) and are those flowers stamped on the button bits flower stems???? So maybe a stamping companion for that set…and ink? Maybe some type of ink (not hybrid) new to PTI.

  • 15
    Bonnie Sharp says:

    I dunno, but I am so excited to go and see PTI and everyone! I say that every minute of every day, but I am soooo excited!!

    kara says:

    maybe button bits additions…..stamps to use instead of buttons?

  • 17
    Marilyn McCree says:

    I love the colors! I hope it’s markers too.

  • 18
    Cyndi says:

    The first thought that popped into my head was markers that match the PTI colors, and my second thought was some type of digital fonts. I’m hoping the turquoise and orange colors I saw are soon to be PTI colors. As always, I’ll be glued to my computer for upcoming releases! Have a safe trip, and I can’t wait to see the new and latest trends in your upcoming postings!

  • 19

    Oh boy, I’m so excited for you.
    CHA sounds like a blast.
    My guess is… mini ink sampler, little 1 x 1 ink set.
    What ever it is I’m sure it’s off the hook!

    Rose Antonopoulos says:

    Hmm….it kind of looks like a t-shirt to me- Something every convention booth needs !!!

    deb says:

    I instantly saw a gorgeous t-shirt!!!!!! Can’t wait to order!!! (if it’s not a t-shirt, it should be!) Have fun at CHA!!!

  • 23

    I am probably way off but is it “Think Ink”, maybe you have created a magazine or newsletter “get inspired” or you have written a book? Maybe a blog just for PTI and the designers? That wouldn’t be for sale though. This is a tough one!

    I would also be thrilled if it was a demo type thing but I think my husband would kill me!

  • 24
    laurie hunt says:

    I am guessing that you are coming out with markers to match the line of inks and paper? That’s my guess and I’m sticking to it!

  • 25
    Ashjoy says:

    Have fun! I’m going to CKC this weekend and I’m sure hoping it will be packed with vendors and not everyone going to CHA.

    A book of inspirations using PTI stamp sets???

  • 29
    Denean says:

    Isabel Z says:

    I have no idea but just wanted to wish you a wonderful time. Wish I was there too.

  • 34
    Myrna Holstrom says:

    My first thought was a set of stamps to work with Everyday Button Bits – which I am loving by the way – but after reading the comments here I am really intrigued. Can’t wait to find out!

  • 38
    Jessica says:

    How fun. I wish I was going 🙁 My family from Florida decided to come visit us so that spoiled the trip we had planned for this time. They’re from Orlando too. I have a few guesses 1st one a book of ideas with all your talented crew, CD for digital papertrey art or a catalogue to share ideas and order products. This is tuff but oh how fun 🙂

  • 39
    Lynn Brown says:

    My guess is markers!

  • 40
    Elizabeth Knehans says:

    My first guess was fonts, but after looking at the image it might be markers. Whatever it is, I’m sure I’ll love it and have to have it!


  • 41
    Lynette says:

    I totally agree with those that said markers. My first thought, for sure! How fun!!

  • 42
    Michelle says:


  • 43
    Anya says:

    I’m going to guess rub-ons too.. although any of the other ideas would be wonderful too!

  • 44
    Debbie S says:

    I also think this may be some sort of publication or catalog. My other thought is an online class. Oh, I can’t wait to find out what the surprise is!!

  • 45
    Kerry from PA says:

    My first thought was rub ons (I see someone else mentioned that) but I see ‘ink’ several times so I’m wondering if it has to do with some type of new/different ink or maybe markers to match the ink pads?

  • 46
    Jolene S says:

    Looks like fabric to me!

    Maybe this is one of those deals where if you buy, say, 20 ink pads, you get a free t-shirt… kind of like if you buy 12 stamp sets thruout the year, you get the anniversary set!

    Or maybe you get a free t-shirt when you sign up to be a consultant! BE STILL MY BEATING HEART if this is the case!!!

  • 47
    Jolene S says:

    OK… so maybe its just PTI-wear for sale… who knows…. hopefully they have a “green” coffee mug (what are they? stainless steel? aluminum? whatever, I have yet to bite the bullet and buy one but now just might be my chance!)

  • 48
    Monica Jantz says:

    I’m thinking markers!!I know a lot of ladies said that already but that was my first guess! Could be a new color…hope to see you at CHA!!

  • 49
    Bonnie aka raduse says:

    I’m thinking rub on’s of some kind.

  • 50

    Maybe a new line of ink…chalk inks? Have a great time!!

  • 51
    Tami McBeain says:

    My first thought was t-shirts or bags, also thought maybe rub-ons! I know what ever it is that I’ll have to have it! 🙂 Have a great time at CHA, wish I was attending.

  • 52
    Hilde says:

    Maybe it’s embossing powders in all the PTI colors? Have fun at CHA! Looking forward to your updates!

  • 53
    Elizabeth S. says:

    I am thinking rub-ons!! Can’t wait to see pictures for CHA since I wasn’t able to go:(

  • 54

    I see “Think Ink,” too. I’d love PTI-wear!!

  • 55
    Melissa says:

    Looks like a t-shirt! Love the colors…is that teal and orange I see, yay!!! Have fun- wish I could be there!

  • 56
    Mary H says:

    announcement about a cruise or something? here’s hoping!


  • 57
    Kelly Marie says:

    Is it a T-Shirt? I really hope that turquoise and orange are going to be PTI colors!! Good luck at CHA!

  • 58
    Helen F. says:

    Hmmm, maybe a line of markers sorta like “Copics” only “Papertrey Inkers” 🙂 Whatever you come up with will be awesome!

  • 59
    Diana says:

    I wish I was with you in FL. My first guess was a magazine or a new forum. Only because of the “get inspired” (share?) “the possibilities” I’m getting too far ahead of myself. Markers would really be great though. Or a book dedicated to our favorite obsession. PAPERTYREY INK.

  • 60
    CrazyCurl says:

    Looks like an idea book to me 🙂

  • 61
    jenny4wheel says:

    I think it’s a sketch/inspiration book.

  • 62
    Marie says:

    I’m guessing a catalog or idea book — I know lots of people have requested that!

  • 63

    markers, markers, markers ??????? can’t wait to see you at CHA!

  • 64
    Kari D says:

    Looks as though you are as efficient and precise in your packing as you are in your stamping! But was is the sneak peek today? Could it possibly be PTI colors in dimensional radiant pearl-like bottles just waiting to be used on a project or ten? Can’t wait to see what your devious, er artful mind has come up with!

  • 65

    hmmm…it looks like a thin marker that matches your inks? Maybe?? Have a blast…post lots of pics :0)

  • 66
    Shannon R. says:

    My vote is t-shirt. Hopefully I’ll find out on Saturday. See you at the PTI booth!

  • 67
    Kristy says:

    I love it! I sure hope it’s a t-shirt. I’d wear it proudly. Okay, the inner editor in me just has to say….the word “posibilities” on the fabric is spelled wrong…it’s missing the last “i”. I hope that’s just a prototype. I can’t wait to see it all in person!

  • 68
    Sue in Grapevine says:

    I’m thinking you’re selling fonts & including the ability to print things out in the PTI colors.

  • 69
    Christi E. says:

    I thought it was a t-shirt but it could also be an apron or a bag. It looks like fabric to me. Can’t wait to find out what it is!

  • 70
    Nimue says:

    I’m guessing that you’re going to be offering us markers in the famous PaperTrey colours. – Nimmy

  • 71

    It would be a dream to meet you ladies one day. 🙂 Have an awesome time!

    Hmmm? Rubons? Going Digi??? Can’t wait to find out… RELIEVED AND GRATEFUL that it’s not exclusive to CHA attendees! 🙂

  • 72
    Genevieve says:

    The new colors , Flowers that are detailed and a new font WOW
    Wish i could be there but we are all there with you Good luck with this adventure and for those attending really enjoy

  • 73
    Emilia says:

    I have no idea what it might be, but if it is something from PTI, it’s good for sure 🙂

  • 74
    Lynne says:

    My first thought was markers, so I’m going with that. Have a great trip!

  • 75
    takisha says:

    I zoomed in and it definitely looks like a t-shirt to me.
    I also see that you capitalized the word BRAND – so maybe it’s Papertrey Ink brand!
    See ya Friday!

  • 76
    Kim G says:

    I am guessing colored embossing powders to match Papertrey colors, if that is not it, then a t-shirt. Wish I was going, looks like everyone will have a blast!!

  • 77
    Kim H says:

    I also thought it says “Think Ink”, which makes me wonder if it’s a compilation of all the Design Team samples maybe from years 1 and 2 available for download. Computer fonts for generating sentiments would be cool too, or markers…..can’t wait to see what it is!

  • 78
    Diana B says:

    MARKERS!!! I’m all a gush and maybe wrong but that was my first instict and I’m going with it because that would be so awesome. Wait but what about Copics? PTI sells them but maybe these are not like Copics maybe these are like the ones from the other company. I’ll keep babeling if I don’t stop here.

  • 79
    Barbara V says:

    Looks like markers to me…lots of different colors on a single image! Oh to be in Orlando!!

    C Burke says:

    elaine says:

    I’m guessing a t-shirt! And I love your new pic. My do you look different. Hope CHA is fun and profitable for you! You deserve it all!!!

  • 83
    Teresa says:

    Looks like a t-shirt to me too. Guess I’ll know for sure tomorrow . . . 😉

  • 84
    Deb says:

    I’m guessing markers to match paper & ink.

  • 85
    Sandy says:

    Like most here, I think that it’s a box of markers!!! That was the first thing that popped into my mind.

  • 86
    Julia Aston says:

    I’m guessing either little inks so we can use multicolors on a stamp – or maybe multicolored clear stickers??? Hope you are all having fun at CHA!! maybe next year I’ll get down there – it sure sounds like a super fun time!!!

  • 87
    Dana says:

    Nice. I’m thinking it is a t-shirt. Looks like it when you zoom in. Also I think the word “Possibilities” is spelled incorrectly on this item, whatever it is! Wish I was at CHA to see it IRL!

  • 88
    Stacy C. says:

    I was thinking either markers or a new ink. Can’t wait to see…

  • 89
    Jean C (naturecoastcrafter) says:

    Nichole, Dawn,
    So good to finally meet you IRL on Friday at the booth. I want all of the PTI folks to know that if my opinion counts for anything, you had the BEST booth and merchandise available at the SUPERSHOW! I am amazed at the planning and organization and time and effort you all put into planning and laying out that space to make the most of it. It was obvious that there had been MUCH thought and conversation in advance and I appreciate it so much. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. You were also the only vendor giving out things like the pens and memo pads and the lovely, lovely pink bags. Such an elegant and thoughtful touch. Bravo to all involved, a big hug, and thank you!

  • 90
    Jean C (naturecoastcrafter) says:

    BTW to everyone who commented and guessed Tshirts here–you should have seen the shirts the PTI team wore and had available for sale. They were so pretty and were quite popular.
