Day 2: 2010 Stamp Designers & A Challenge!

By February 1, 2010General

Well, is everyone having fun yet?  What a way to kick off our third anniversary!   It was so exciting to see all of the participation yesterday!  I am so thrilled to see how many of you are stopping by to play along! Just wait until you see what else we have coming up during the course of the next few days!


Today, I am excited to introduce you to the 2010 Stamp Designer line-up!  All of these ladies have worked so incredibly hard to bring you the most versatile, innovative stamps we will have introduced yet! It is going to be so hard to wait for each set to be unveiled over the coming year because there is just SO much goodness!  First, let me introduce you to the two newcomers we have for this year!


I told you yesterday that Becky Oehlers was leaving behind her Design Team responsibilities to focus on working for us in a new capacity…and here it is!  After realizing how passionate she was about stamp concepts, Becky decided to train herself as an illustrator.  I am so proud of how far she has come and I know you will love her work!  It's whimsical with just a touch of modern style, something fresh and fun to offer our customers.  Her fist set will be coming in March!


Niki Estes has spent the better part of a year learning the illustrating programs we work with and her precision and dedication to perfection is certainly admirable.  Her clean designs are immaculately executed and I know you will see the versatility in her stamps the moment you begin using them!  Niki has begun her line with images that she herself as a stamper has been longing for in her collection and I think many others will agree that it's just what they were missing!  Her first set is coming out during this exciting February release!

After a big move into a new home, Alli Miles has taken things up a notch and will be releasing several new sets this year, one of which is coming this very month!  All of us love Alli's font combinations along with her modern style.  Alli has integrated some fun innovations with many of her offerings this year, whether it be tool coordination or technique driven images.  You are going to LOVE what Alli is bringing to the table in 2010!

Beth Silaika, a busy mom of six, is going to blow you away with all she has scheduled for this year!  Her style is very whimsical, reminding me of playtime & doodles.  It aways makes me feel like the artist within me comes out to play when I use her fun stamps. Not only does Beth produce fun stamp images, but she also has a FUN personality, taking life by the horns and enjoying every single moment!  Beth's first set of 2010 is coming next month, in March, so be sure to keep your eye out!!!

I know many of you will be thrilled that Dawn McVey is joining us for another year of stamp designing! Not only can Dawn design amazing images that we turn to again and again, but she also invests a lot of time via her blog in SHOWING you what amazing things you can create with her images.  Dawn has several sets in the schedule for this year and we can hardly wait for them to begin releasing!  The first of which is coming this month!

Heather Nichols is joining us for another year, and boy, what a BIG year it is going to be!  She has lots and lots up her sleeve which will slowly be announced over the coming weeks AND months!  We have heard you loud and clear that you love her style as much as we do.  Rustic whimsy is a term I use whenever I refer to Heather's signature look that has really made her recognizable throughout the industry.  Look for one of Heather's many announcements later on this release!

Lisa Johnson released several sets last year, but will always be most well-known for On My Couch & Life. It was absolutely delightful to follow along with publications and bloggers as they fell in love with these two sets and consistently figured out new & fresh ways to use them!  Lisa's mind works in a wonderful way, thinking about every angle of each image she includes in a set and how it can be used to it's best advantage.  Lisa will have some "encores" this year along with some brand new concepts that you will be head over heels for!

Clean & simple is the perfect way to describe Melissa Bickford's design style.  She has designed SO many of the basics that we use over and over again, and you won't be disappointed with what else she has to offer you along those lines this year!  I just adore Melissa's stamping style as well, so it is always such a treat to see her projects each countdown!  She has her first set of the year coming out this very month, so you won't have long to wait to see some of the exciting things she has created for your enjoyment this year!

Tiffany Pastor has captured many of your hearts with her vintage distressed style. Since she is first and foremost a scrapbooker, it is always interesting to see how she uses her images with those types of applications.  Her next set will be coming later this summer, so you have something to look forward to in the warmer months!

Each member of the 2010 Papertrey Stamp Designer Team has created a birthday image for you to download, print and utilize as an embellishment for a handmade birthday card, wishing us a happy birthday!  There's just a few easy steps to follow in order to have a chance to win BIG!

1. Visit each of the stamp designer blogs (links above) and download one, two, three or ALL the free images they have created on your behalf!

2. Print the designs you would like to work with.

3. Create a project or projects using the image(s).

4. Upload a photo of your project to you blog or online gallery.  (You can enter one project for EACH designer's graphic, so you can have up to NINE entries total, meaning nine chances to win!)

5.  Add the link for your photo(s) to the Mister Linky box below.

6.  Those that leave a comment talking about what their favorite Papertrey stamp set of 2009 was, will also be eligible to win.  Those that create a project link in Mister Linky AND comment will have an extra entry. Only one comment per person please.



We've put together an AMAZING prize package that any stamper would love to receive! This includes SEVEN of the best selling stamp sets from last years designers!  All in one BIG prize package that will be given to one lucky randomly selected winner!  That's $159 worth of new stamps!  They include:

    Button Bits, Button Bits, Button Bits. Everyday, Holiday and Baby Button Bits. To me they are one lovely, gigantic buttony set that I hope keeps growing and growing. When I saw the first set, it was an aha moment for me. What an absolutely perfect idea! The images are so cute too! Definitely my favorite(s) of 2009

    Thanks for the free downloads, I won’t have time to make a card this week but I am going to save it for later. My favorite set this year was the button bits. I am a button fanatic and getting that set(along with lots of PT buttons)was my favorite purchase this year. I really liked it because it combines a stamp with using some of my stash at the same time.

    Sue in Grapevine says:

    My favorite stamp set of 2009 was Home Made. When I saw that 1st window sneak peek, I knew that I would buy the set.
    I only hope I can get a project done & posted to be eligible for the other part of the contest.

    Eek! That’s a hard one! I really love Damask Designs, though. It was the first set that I did flips over. It made me completely gitty, and it’s also used in one of my first publications. Very near and dear to my heart. πŸ™‚

    Congrats to all of the returning designers! I have no doubt that each of you will bring wonderful creations to PTI. πŸ™‚

    Andrea McCulley says:

    My favorite stamp set of 2009 is Autumn Abundance. Fall is my favorite season and I love the fall florals mixed with the pottery vases! This set also pushed me to grow by trying coloring, which I had always tried to avoid until I saw this set! I found out I really like to color! I would love to see this theme continue into the other 3 seasons!

    Sunny Penn says:

    It is too hard to choose one set from 2009 sets but Beyond Basic Borders is my favorite. The set has lovely images and sentiments! I just love them!

    Happy 3rd Birthday! Thank you for the chance to win those wonderful sets!

  • 15
    Amy O. says:

    I’m not sure if I really can only pick one set…I love them all! πŸ™‚ But if I have to I think I would say Polka Dot Basics 2…I’ve used it and used it and used it! Thanks for all the great stamps this year!

    Sara Spencer says:

    My favorite stamp sets (I can’t pick just one) was the button bits sets and In bloom. Love, love, love these sets. So versatile and quick and easy to use. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year.

    Stacy says:

    Right now my favorite set is Star prints, though I can’t wait to get bitty baby blessings.

    Wahinelei says:

    Wow it’s hard to choose just one but I think the one I REALLY loved-loved was Damask Design. I didn’t purchase it when it was first released but kept seeing all these fabulous projects using it. So I finally got it about 5 months later and now Im always pulling it out!

    Also want to say I am so excited about Becky & Niki’s new role with PTI! I can’t wait to see their stamps!!

    Michelle L. says:

    I loved Damask Designs. The elegance of the images just wows me every time!
    Happy Anniversary PTI! I’m looking forward to 2010!

    It’s so hard to choose a favorite! I love Vintage Picnic though, and hope to see more vintage-themed sets in the future.

  • 21
    Cindy Vernon says:

    My favorites would be the button bits sets. Just love those! I downloaded the images and I’m off to play!

  • 22

    So excited to see what’s coming from these talented ladies this year! I loved so many sets last year but I’ll call Star Prints a favorite for it’s versatility and wonderful swirly font!

  • 23
    Ange Kelly says:

    It is always so exciting waiting for the ‘next release’, and seeing the fabulous sets that these talented ladies design for us! Honestly, I can’t pick just one set for my favourite, but I do love all of Dawn’s stamp sets!

  • 24
    Ruth B. says:

    My favorite stamp set would have to be “simple valentine” because of the multiple types of stamps included – backgrounds, sentiments and various image sizes.

  • 25
    Tammy says:

    So many fabulous sets were released this year that it is so hard to pick just one. However, I must say the one I was most excited about was the first buttons set- Everyday Button Bits. What an amazing concept and I love all the new button bits sets that have been added.

  • 26
    laurent says:

    I would have to say the Friends ‘Til The End is a standout. It is so subtle in its elegance and versatility. I have seen so many beautiful cards made with it and for different occasions as well. It really is so inspiring to see so many styles created from one set of stamps.

  • 27
    Sharon D says:

    Happy birthday, PTI! My favorite set of the past year is Turning a New Leaf. But I’d also like to give honorable mentions to Life and Giga Guidelines and Communique Curves Sentiments (the best $5 I ever spent at PTI).

    I’m so excited about the upcoming year, and I promise to do my part to keep PTI in business! Thanks for the chance to win!

    dette says:

    My favorite set from 2009 has to be Tea for Two, only because it is the set that led me to discover Papertrey. I meet friends for afternoon tea at least every 3 months, and we exchange tea themed gifts over the holidays. So I did an internet search for tea themed stamps and found Papertrey. I have been a fan ever since.

  • 29
    Jenink says:

    That is a tough question. I will have to go with Everyday Button Bits b/c when I saw the whole concept I was just SO excited about it.

    Kim B says:

    HI Nichole,

    my favourite set – it would have to be Everyday Buttons Bits this was the one that lured me into PTI, and now I have all the Button sets.

    I must say I’m a note girl so Take Note was at the top of my list. Thanks for the free downloads today. What a special gift!! I am loving this birthday celebration. Happy Birthday Papertrey!

    Diane S. (momoffive) says:

    I love them all but I would have to say Signature Greetings has seen the most ink!!! Keep them coming!!!

  • 33
    Becky P. says:

    My favorite stamp set in 2009 was everyday button bits. It has allowed me to make great cards with not a lot of effort. I love the entire button bits line. So versatile and great for scrapbooking as well.

  • 34
    Mary (Happy Now) says:

    Egads! The kids will have to fend for themselves on Tuesday because there is STAMPING to be done! πŸ™‚

    Each and every release in 2009 packed a punch — it’s really hard to pick. I would say that the Button Bits collection was probably the most clever and innovative, though. Great job, all!

  • 35
    Rachel VP says:

    I really love In Bloom. I love the organic style of this set. Plus, the line art images allow for so many possibilities. This set is in my cart as I write and I hope to have it in my creative little hands soon! Hee, hee. πŸ™‚

    April C. says:

    I love so many of this year’s sets but there’s a three way tie for my favorite set – I honestly can’t decide between Autumn Abundance, Vintage Picnic, and Everyday Button Bits. I love to color fabulous images and those button sets are so stinkin’ cute and clever! Okay now it’s a four way tie because I just remembered how fun the Holiday Button Bits were. But wait, I also love Damask Designs, Mega Mixed Messages, Star Prints… guess I just love PTI so I hope this doesn’t disqualify me from the amazing prize package, lol!

  • 38
    Kristie says:

    I’m having a tough time deciding between Fancy Flourishes, Mother, Giga Guidelines, and Tree Trimming Trio. So since I only get to pick one, I will say Mother because the each one of the sayings are perfect expressions that I want to say to my mother. I just used this set yesterday to make a card. It’s an amazing set.

  • 39
    Smriti says:

    My favorite set of 2009 is Guide Lines two. Love the versatility of the set! I like the whole concept of being able to create multiple backgrounds with one stamp setand the designs of the circular elements are just fabulous!

  • 40
    LR says:

    There were many amazing sets in 2009! I think my favorite is Everyday Button Bits. I love buttons and I love every design in the set! Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest and for all the wonderful free birthday downloads!! It feels like it is my birthday!!

    Crystal M. says:

    My favorite set released in 2009 is Take Note.

  • 42
    Nancy Nelson says:

    All the stamp sets released in 2009 were amazing and it is really difficult to choose one favorite but if I had to I would say… Take Note so fun, so many uses! I just have to add one more all the Button Bits sets, the concept is like nothing else on the market!

  • 43
    Julie says:

    PTI had some amazing stampsets this year–many I wanted, only a few I could get! Everyday Button Bits was my favorite and most used.

  • 44

    My favorite set from last year is Damask Designs.

    Becs Attwood says:

    What a fun idea – thanks for all the free images, hope I get time to play with them! Hard to pick just one favourite…maybe a top 2? Dawn’s Signature Christmas set really filled a hole in my stamp collection & got a lot of use over the holiday season. And In Bloom was awesome – I just love how great it looks to stamp the flower & leaves on coloured paper, cut out & layer- beautiful cards for any occasion!

  • 47
    Linda w says:

    Mega mixed messages would have to be my favorite set from 2009. There are not too many cards that don’t utilize words.

    stamp on…

    nina says:

    Wow, are you kidding? Narrow it down to a single set from ’09?! Too many to choose just one! I do love my BB Retro, and would love to get Fresh Alphabet. With Sympathy has such lovely sentiments too, for times when it’s hard to know what to say… I could go on and on!

    I think the button bits would have to be my favorite, although the January trees set would win for those stunning white birch trees, except it was 2010!!!

    Kimberly Ann says:

    My favorite set of 2009? I was going to say “Through the Trees” (you really hit a homerun with that one) then I remembered that was just last month! 2010!
    So back to 2009, this is really tough – I would have to say my favorite set is the one I use the most, “Vintage Labels”.
    I also loved the scavenger hunt! Brilliant! While searching for stamp set titles I also made a shopping list. You’re not only a great designer but a savvy business partner. Great Ideas!! I’m enjoying the celebration πŸ™‚

  • 57
    Melissa Hungria says:

    Hands down, everyday button bits. This was my second purchase of Papertrey stamp sets. I saw a card on splitcoaststampers and had no idea that it used a stamp set, but thought it was a very clever lady. Now I know the answer was both! I fell in love and now am the proud owner of six sets and more to come, I’m sure!

  • 58
    Chelle says:

    My favorite was Everyday Button Bits, followed by the other two 2009 button bit sets. (and baby bits, from 2010!). love those button bits…

  • 59

    Sherry in MI says:

    Decisions, decisions….while I love all of
    the button bits sets and Dawn’s Damask
    Designs, I think I would have to say that my
    absolute favorite set from 2009 is Lisa
    Johnson’s “Life”. It just speaks to my soul. The color combos are endless and I
    really love combining all the different
    stamps designs. LOVE it!.

  • 65
    Michelle says:

    No question my favorite set of 2009 was Take Note. Such an awesome idea!

    I like them all, but my favorite is Tiny Treats: Valentine

  • 67
    Michele F says:

    It is so very hard to choose a favorite – there are so many sets that I love. If I have to pick, I must say that it is Everyday Button Bits. This is not a set I thought I was going to really use. So I did not order it during its initial release. When Holiday Button Bits came out, I bought it all because of Nichole’s post with the snowman and Santa. The rest is history. I now own all the button bits sets. I have to say that I am in love with all the Button Bits sets! I can’t seem to put them away. So, these have been surprise favorite sets for me.

  • 68
    Brenda Lee says:

    Unfortunately, I’m unable to participate in the contest using the images….darn job gets in the way, but I gotta have SOME way of paying for my PTI goodies. LOL!!! I’ve come to love so many sets, but my all time favorite has got to be Scattered Showers….I live in SEATTLE!!! So appropriate!!!

    Priscilla from California says:

    I have to agree that Polka Dot Basics II is my favorite set, too. It never gets old and there’s so many ways to use it.

  • 73
    Dana F. says:

    I think my favorite set has to be Damask Designs! Not only because it was one of my first sets but first and foremost because it’s so versatile with all of its sentiments, vocal points and background stamps. From elegant to fun cards – everything is possible!

  • 74
    Susan says:

    It’s difficult to choose just one favorite set for 2009! Since I have to name just one, I choose Everyday Button Bits.

    Wow, this is a hard one. I could list a set for each category but I will say I am still in love with Vintage Picnic. I love how the stamp is so versatile and looks totally different each time it’s colored. Just love it!

    Gosh – just choosing one set is really hard! I only discovered PTI last summer, so am bowled over by everything! I think my favourite stamp set at the moment would have to be Turning a New Leaf – it is so versatile and everyone loves the cards I have made using it! Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary!

  • 81
    Steph says:

    Serendipity says:

    There have been sooooo many great stamp sets released in 2009, I just wish my budget would allow me to purchase all of them! But for me, my favorite release has been Let Freedom Ring……my son has served two tours over in Iraq and I found myself reaching for that particular set more and more after it’s release. I would use it scrapbook pages, and cards I would send to my son and his friends while they were there. Great job!

  • 84
    Cheri Howard says:

    I love ALL the Background Basics sets, but my current fave is the Hearts set!

    Ann says:

    My favourite set? Hard to decide but I have used Vintage Picnic on lots of projects and I just love the way the images are just right on all sorts of occasions from birthdays to sympathy cards. My most wished for set is Damask Designs – so elegant.

  • 86
    Julie E says:

    Thank you to all the designers for sharing the images – so fun and I will be using these for more than just today’s challenge (why do I have to go to work??? I want to stay home and create!). As for my favorite, it would be Everyday Button Bits. I am a button addict, I admit it freely! Plus not only are the images versatile and fun, the sentiments are so sweet. I find myself incorporating the sentiments on lots of my projects. I am excited by the new year and new designers. Congrats to all!

  • 87
    Lousette says:

    Hard to choose just one, but I fell in love with On my couch the minute I saw it. I so love that set. Damask Designs is a very close second, and of course polka dot basics 2.

  • 88
    CindyC says:

    my favorite is the one I just got, Heart Prints…. so versatile. I love it!

    Amy Wanford says:

    Ooh well if I could only pick one set from 2009 it would have to be:


    I just love playing with this set, it makes me smile so much! I also consider it a lucky set as it helped me win the August GSS ;D

    I’m gonna download the images but sadly can’t play along today – I’m nowhere near my crafty stash until tomorrow night :o( but thanks anyways!
    Such a shame I can’t play along in time for the deadline

    Terri E. says:

    Wow just one????? Okay I think that I use Damask Designs quite a bit. I am also loving Dawn and everything she does. Her style is fabulous and I adore all of the ideas and cards she shares on a regular basis. Sets that I didn’t think I needed become must haves after a few weeks of watching Dawn’s blog.

    It’s a good life!

    Shelly says:

    The set I’m most excited about right now is “Through the Trees” – your samples are spectacular and I look forward to copying every single one of them. lol The set I use the most though is “Mega Mixed Messages”. You’ve covered every base with this one so I reach for it again and again.
    Sets I love, but haven’t played much with are Fruitful and Simply Stationery… still hoping to see more samples here and there that I can plagiarize? (please?)
    Thank you for all your sets – you guys truly have an “eye” for gorgeous!

    Really hard to choose just one set, but mine would have to be Polka Dot Basics II because it’s so versatile. I’ve used it over and over.

  • 93
    Cheryl says:

    My favorite stamp set released in 2009 would have to be Giga Guide Lines. It is so versatile and can be used for almost any project.

  • 94
    Lee Cockrum says:

    It is so very difficult to narrow it down to one favorite set, but at the moment I will say Tea for Two. I love tea pots, my grandmom used to collect them, so they hold a special place in my heart.

    Thanks for the chance to win such great prizes!!

  • 95
    Aimeslee says:

    My favorite 2009 stamp set is probably Signature Greetings. I love the cursive used with the type font in each greeting as well as the utilitarian indispensibility having so many sentiments in one set. xoxo, Aimeslee

    judi says:

    How can I pick just ONE???? Well, if I have to – I would say Lisa Johnson’s Life set was just so perfect for a newbie stamper like me! Being able to build lovely floral scapes with different colors and silhouettes of the shapes of the plants just spoke to me – and SO EASY to create a simple yet stunning little piece of art! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Beverley says:

    It’s hard to pick just one stamp set! Though if I was to choose one that stands out to me and I choose to use time & time again is In Bloom! I’m looking forward to what 2010 has in store! πŸ™‚

  • 101
    Wendy T. says:

    Sooo hard to choose just one fave set from 2009, but I would have to say the top of my list is Signature Christmas. I adore it. I have loved every card I made with this set and kept wishing I had more sentiments in the same style, so I’ve just bought Signature Greetings at long last as well. LOVE them!

  • 102
    Jodie M. says:

    I am new to Papertrey, just discovering it a little while ago, so I don’t actually own any Papertrey stamps yet!!! I just love Dawn’s Damask Designs.

  • 103
    Renee S. says:

    It’s so difficult to select just one favorite. There are so many, but my hand seems to pick Big and Bold Wishes over and over again. It is so versatile and can be combined with any one of my other favorites to make something special. I find myself using PTI stamps more often than any other stamps I own.

  • 104
    kara says:

    Star Prints is my favorite from 2009!

  • 105

    My favorite 2009 set was Damask Designs… I just love what Dawn does both with the designing and the creating aspects!!!

  • 111
    Shelly says:

    Wow, how to pick just one! I think the one that most inspired me was Home Made. I just couldn’t stop making those great little houses. They were such a big hit with folks on my Christmas list and not a single person could believe they were “just paper” πŸ™‚

  • 112
    TammyButz says:

    It’s hard to pick just one – but I would have to say Turning a New Leaf with Fancy Flourishes being a close second.

  • 113
    wendy m. says:

    Absolutely love Beyond Basic Borders, with Background Basics: Text Style a very close second! And thank you (and the designers) for the downloads – I won’t have time to play this week, but am looking forward to using them soon!

  • 114
    janet mack says:

    How can you pick just one? I guess my most favorite is Vintage Picnic. So many differant looks from one set.

  • 115

    My favorite stamp set is “Take Note”! I have used it so many times for notebooks as well as cards, plus scrapbooking. I think Mish Wooderson would make a great stamp designer…that girl can sell ANYTHING!! Her ideas are so fresh and fun….I will buy anything she helps to create. I love ALL the 2009 stamps, but Take Note has to be my fav!

  • 116
    Mary Duffek says:

    Wow….awesome sets and can’t wait to begin creating with the Birthday designs. You rock, Nichole! Thanks for a chance to win and my all time favorite PTI stamp of 2009 was….Tea for Two.

  • 117

    My heart lept when I saw that Becky is going to start designing stamp sets!! Do I see a music-inspired stamp set in the future? *big grin*

    My favorite stamp set of 2009 is Giga Guide Lines! I’m sure it wasn’t my single request for some large-size medallions that got this stamp set going, but I feel like it’s my personal set that I asked for! How’s that for pleasing the customer?

  • 118
    Denean says:

    Button Bits! The most amazing and innovative set thus far from PaperTrey!!!

  • 119
    Isabel Z says:

    What an almost impossible task–picking my favorite PTI stamp set of the year. If I HAD to pick one I would go with the button sets b/c I love, love, love buttons–their feel, texture, color, and the depth they add to a project. I also went with this one b/c it was such a creative and unique stamp set. Keep them coming PTI!

  • 120
    Catherine says:

    On My Couch!! No doubt, I use it all the time :0)

  • 121
    Janelle says:

    Oh, every release it seems that I have a new favorite, but I think I’ve probably used Everyday Button Bits the most, if not for the images, for the sentiments. Heart Prints and Star Prints are also favorites of mine. Mmmm, Autumn Tags. Damask Designs. How can I choose? I don’t think I’ve met a PTI set that I didn’t love!

  • 122
    Renee says:

    That’s like asking me to decide which of my children is my favorite! I’d say holiday button bits if I have to pick a favorite from this year!

  • 123
    Karen says:

    I loved Everyday Button Bits, and also Signature Christmas which I used on nearly every Christmas card last year! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2010! It looks better than ever.

  • 124
    Rose says:

    My absolute favourite stamps set of 2009 was hands down In Bloom. So much beautiful colouring in potential, as well as gorgeous background building options.
    now, got to finish my work day so I can go home and make some cards !!!

  • 125
    Kelly Pitzlin says:

    I would have to say everyday button bits. But I LOVE ALL of the button bits sets! But that first one, just absolutely knocked my socks off like no other! I think for that, that has to be m favorite! I love handwritten notes also!

  • 126
    Marcie S. says:

    My favourite set of 2009 has to be Take Note. I can’t begin to count how many notepads I have made for friends and family, not to mention using the ever versatile stamps on card projects as well!

  • 127
    cynthia says:

    Last years anniversary set is my all time favorite set. Next would be Father Knows Best but I love them all and I can’t wait for an exciting new year.

  • 128
    Kim Jennings says:

    Decisions…Decisions…with so many great stamp sets….but I think I have to go with the first stamp set I purchased from Papertrey Ink…and that would be Scattered Showers. I love that set!

  • 129
    Sara Mac says:

    What a fun challenge! I cannot choose just one favorite stamp set from 2009. My top five, in no particular order, are Damask Designs, Giga Guidlines, Signature Greetings, In Bloom and Everyday Button Bits.

  • 130
    Melissa F. says:

    I have some many stamp sets that I absolutely love from 2009 and picking just one is really tough. I would say Everyday Button Bits is one of my top favorites becasue it is so unique and such a great idea. Thanks for the chance to win and I’ll try to get some cards made too.

  • 131
    Angela says:

    My favorite set from 2009 is Giga Guide Lines. I have all of the Guide Line sets and I love the super-sized version! Thanks for all of the fun you’re planning during these next 14 days – today I was most excited by Becky’s graphic, Heather’s card and Melissa’s birthday wishes. Happy February to PTI and it’s fans!

    Regina M. says:

    So hard to choose! I’d have to say Everyday Button Bits was my fave. It seemed to have kicked off the start of a wonderful line. Thank you so much for introducing us to it!

  • 134

    I LOVED any of the Button Bits..Everyday, Holiday, Baby…they are great…keep em’ coming!!! But I loved lots of the sets…so very hard to choose any..I want~need them all!!!

  • 135

    It’s really hard to choose but I would have to say Vintage Picnic. I have not yet tried Copic markers but this set would definitely push me in that direction. Plus I LOVE anything vintage. Keep up the fantastic work!

  • 136
    Karin says:

    Gosh, I love so many…But, if I’m forced, and simply have to choose…AAAhhh…I think it would be, On My Couch! I love that it is so unique from anything else that I have seen in stamps. Love it!

  • 137

    How do you expect us to pick only ONE favorite?!? They’re all amazing.

    I guess my favorite would have to be everyday button bits.

  • 138
    liz says:

    My favorite stamp of the past year, hands down, has to be Star Prints. It’s such an easy go to set and I can get so many different styles using it!

  • 141
    olenka says:

    It is so hard to choose just 1 stamp set that was released last yr because I adored them all.. But if I had to pick.. since I love using buttons I would say Everday Button Bits.

  • 142
    stephanie Stobo says:

    Baby Button Bits is my favorite stamp set. It has so much versatility.

  • 143

    It is really hard to choose just one set that is my favorite from the past year. Everyday Button Bits is at the top of my list. I love having stamps that I can use with my extensive button collection–vintage and new Papertrey buttons–and these stamps are just right for sending an anytime card. Anne, yourmainestamper

  • 144
    Dana says:

    My favorite set for 2009 is Friends ’til the end. I use this set a lot and love the different size flowers that it comes with.

  • 146
    Charlotte D says:

    My absolute favorites are any of the Button Bits sets. I have got so much use out of these and it is fun to add bling or flowers instead of buttons too. I think this is not only my fave, but one of the most innovative stamping concepts we’ve seen over the last year.

  • 147
    Regan says:

    wow…so fun…cant wait to get home and do this…..

    Damask designs! I just love it!!! Its fresh and fun, and can be used many different ways.

  • 150

    What a fantastic celebration for your anniversary! I am “lucky” we have snow in NC so school is canceled and I don’t have to teach today so I can play and craft and enter contests, and make Valentines with my daughter!!!
    I think my favorite set this year was Friends ‘Til the End. I have done so many cards and notes books with it, just love it, thanks!

  • 151
    Helen F. says:

    Happy Birthday and Congratulations on your 3rd year, Papertrey! Love all the Button Bit sets, because they are such a fun concept in stamping and very versatile to use on cards. Also think the flower from “Friends til the end” is the most beautiful stamp I’ve seen.

  • 152
    Ted says:

    Ugh…this is a hard question, Nichole! I’d have to say my favorite 2009 stamp set was Turning a New Leaf… because of its versatility (like so many of PTI’s stamp sets!) and elegance. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the thought-provoking question. πŸ™‚

  • 153
    Kerry J. says:

    Love, love, love Everyday button bits!!! There are many more that I {heart} and many more on my wish list too!

  • 154
    Nadia says:

    My favorite is “Turning a new leaf”: simple but elegant, delicate but even great for masculine cards.


  • 155
    Peggy Sue says:

    Like many of the other PTI stampers, I like more than one of the great stamp sets. Hummm, choose one? Well, guess that would be any of the button bits. They are so darn cute. Gotta love all those pretty buttons!!! Must admit Take Note is right up there to.

  • 156
    Kim Bell says:

    I love them all, but always seem to go back to Mixed Messages and Mega Mixed Messages for the perfect fitting sentiment!!

  • 157
    HCJC says:

    I love all the ‘Button Bits’ Who doesn’t love buttons on their projects & the stamps bring them to life.

  • 158
    Lacey says:

    Turning a New Leaf was the set that I really loved seeing during the release sneak peeks.

  • 159
    Wendy Beck says:

    Wish Big is my favorite 2009. It filled a big void in my stamp collection.

  • 160

    Lots of them are my favorites. However, I have to say my ‘Go To’ set has to be Background Basics – Retro. It has to be one of the most versitile sets in the line up.

  • 161

    My favorite 2009 set was probably Life, but the Button Bits sets came in close seconds. Looking forward to what these wonderful ladies create!!

  • 162
    Carmen M. says:

    Such a hard choice!!! I have to say that my favorite was Damask Designs. It is beautiful and can make some great backgrounds, but the images can also be a focal point.
    Thanks for the chance to win, and congratulations on your third anniversary!

  • 163
    pegg says:

    How to pick one set? You have so many amazing designers (including you) in your line up with such variety. The most fun I’ve had is with the In Bloom set. So pretty and versatile! I’ve used it for so many different occasions.

  • 167
    Jennifer S. says:

    It’s so hard to pick just one set this year. But I think it would have to be In Bloom. I just love the coloring that you can do with that set. It’s so much fun.

  • 168
    Tiffany Nigro says:

    Wow-how hard is it to pick just one! I would have to say Mega Mixed Messages because it has practically every sentiment you will ever need in the new perfect sizing. If I were to pick a mostly image based set it would probably be a toss up between Damask Designs and Polka Dot Basics 2. See I just can’t decide! πŸ™‚

  • 169
    laura rangel says:

    Feliz Anniversario!! Need to say that all designs are great and thank you for sharing. You all are so talented and creative.

    My favorite stamp set from 2009 is so hard to pick!!! I did try to narrow it down and it would be Life and Beyond Basic Borders. I love both of these sets and use them often. Of course I loved many of the other 2009 sets too! I can’t wait to see what 2010 has in store for us!

  • 173
    Marcy says:

    My favorite by far was Blooming Button Bits because it is so creative and unique. A nice way to use up all the buttons I have.

  • 174
    Erin says:

    Although I love pretty much each and every PTI stamp set, I would have to say my favorite stamp set this year is probably Through the Trees! I have been waiting for these beautiful tree images!
    Thanks for all of the downloads, I hope to have time tonight to whip up a card (or 2)!

  • 175
    Bonnie says:

    I had a hard time to pick just one favorite stamp set, but the set I use the most is ” Fancy Flourishes” I use it on almost every card I make and my scrapbook pages too!! Looking forward to the releases for 2010..

  • 176

  • 180
    Niccole_K says:

    My favorite would have to be Signature Greetings. I love the variaation in the font and handwriting. It adds so much visual dinamic to the sayings. It draws your eye in to examin the phrase. I ABSOLUTELY adore the set.

  • 181
    Renae C. says:

    I can’t wait until I get home from work tonight and can make cards with these great images!! I loved all of the Christmas sets from 2009, so I don’t think I can pick just one.

  • 182
    Shelby says:

    Oh goodness, pick only ONE?!? There’s soooo many wonderful sets from this year – so many in fact, that this is the first year I’ve qualified for the anniversary set… x2! Should I be proud or embarrassed? lol

    I think my #1 fave would have to be Guide Lines 2, just because it’s so versatile!

    Carrie T says:

    I loved them all (as usual) and wish that I would win the lottery so that I could buy all of them!! I think that I have to say that my favorite, though, is Life. The design and the sentiments just spoke to my heart. There is just something so lovely, natural, and true about that set.

  • 194
    Joyce says:

    Thanks for the downloads! You all are the best. Trying to pick a favorite set is like trying to decide which child you like best – ha. Seriously, I have been awed (and inspired) by each and every set – love the ‘everyday’ sets and the different holiday sets are, well, ok, they’re my favorite – that’s as close as I’m gonna get. Thanks again for all the time, effort and yes, fun, you put forth in bringing us the different sets and ideas!

  • 195
    Jennifer Delaurier says:

    Wow, what a great contest! There are so many great sets and designers, it will be hard to choose which one is my favorite!

I can’t wait to see more “tiny treats” additions in the coming year…thanks PTI for all that you ignite in my creative spark!

  • 197
    Barb W says:

    Every month I have a new favorite – but I will say that Baby Button Bits and Turning a New Leaf are getting a lot of use right now. I LOVE Inside & Out – Baby and SO HOPE THAT MORE SETS ARE COMING IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE FOR Birthdays, Thinking of You, Thank you etc. Those are things that I am always looking for and are harder to find. Please :~)

  • 198
    Allison Taylor says:

    My favorite set from 2009 is Polka Dot Basics 2! Those dots just work themselves into nearly every project I make!

    I also love the dots because I love the background building concept that PTI pioneered! Background Basics Retro, Hearts, Flower Power, Diamonds, Textstyle — such fabulous and well-executed designs that truly changed the way I stamp!

    (and I got to sneak a few more favorites into my comment!) πŸ™‚

  • 212
    Sue C says:

    I have a hard time deciding on one set too. I would say the one that I use most often from 2009 is Star Prints as you can use it for so many things, but I also use Fancy Flourishes on almost everything! Wish I had more time to play with all these great stamps!

    It might sound easy to pick a favorite set from the 2009 releases. However, I think it is almost an impossible task. At first I was thinking On my couch, then I was thinking scattered showers, then of course there is buttons and bits (all of them)and please don’t forget Vintage Picnic. In the end, I think I will say Sign Language. It is so versatile and I love the cleaness of it.

  • 214
    Kelly Braund says:

    Way too hard to pick one πŸ™‚ I’d say the whole button bits collection is sooo fun! The one set overall that I see myself using for years to come would be vintage labels.

    charity says:

    everyday button bits is my favorite! i love that bicycle!! and the hot air balloon, and oh i love them all!! i think the button idea is adorable.

  • 216

    The set that I have gone to time and time again this year is Every Day Button Bits – I just love everything about it! In fact all the button sets are my favourites – they suit so many occasions.
    Happy Anniversay to you and all the team and thank you for so much inspiration!

    JeanFB says:

    My favorite stamp set of 2009 had to be Mish’s Vintage Picnic set. I just love Mish’s style, plus, I have my grandmother’s old green plaid picnic box, so this set really struck a chord with me. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win some more great designs!

    Maureen F. says:

    I just love Damask Designs, but Life and Vintage Picnic are REALLY close seconds!

    Steph says:

    My favorite set from 2009 is Star Prints. I LOVE the versatility of it…… can be used for baby, birthday, congratulations, thank you, etc. It is gender neutral. It’s SO easy to use because it coordinates with star punches. The font and sentiments are fabulous. The designs of the stars are awesome. Every stamper needs to own Star Prints. Only one thing would make it better………….a mini set of small stars. πŸ˜‰

    It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but I think I love Everday Button Bits as much for the images as for all the sentiments included.

  • 222
    Monika Davis says:

    I wish my printer was working! I’d love to grab these images! I think I love all of Dawn’s stamp sets this past year… and Lisa’s On the Couch set! I bet I also could name a number of others as my favorites. :o) It was a fantastic year for PTI… can’t wait to see what’s new for 2010!

  • 223
    Peg C. says:

    Oh my, it’s so hard to choose. I love the button bits. They have given me a new perspective on the use of buttons, but I also love the Inside and Out: Baby. I hope we continue to get more inside and out stamps.

    Josiane says:

    My favorite 2009 set was definitely Polka Dot Basics II. I did get my 2 other favorites earlier in the yearn(Life and Damask Designs) but was too swamped to make cards much the rest of the year so I hadn’t bought it yet. I am definitely getting it this month.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 239

    Stephanie Bleeker says:

    Winter Swirls was my favourite stamp set of 2009. I used it over and over again to make my Christmas cards. I received so many compliments on my cards this year. So, I love Winter Swirls, because it made me look good!!!

  • 242
    Kris Lindsay says:

    How fun to get free stuff even if I don’t have time to get a card made. I’m having trouble thinking of my favorite set, but I think it would have to say beyond basic borders. It is my most inked set of the year. Of course I love all the sets, but there is something about Heather Nicols designs that I can’t get enough of – I am so happy that she will continue designing for PTI

  • 243
    Linda L says:

    My favorite set of 2009 (and my first Papertrey purchase ever, along with Vintage Ornaments) is Signature Christmas. I made lots of Christmas tags this year and a few Christmas cards and found this lovely sentiment set to be invaluable. (There are lots of other sets that I covet!)

  • 246
    Darla says:

    Who could pick just one set? Probably the most unique set was the Everyday Button Bits! It opened a whole new concept in stamping!

  • 247
    Ngan R. says:

    My favorite stamp set from 2009 was On My Couch! Such a beautiful concept and can be used for so many things…get well cards, let’s chat cards, home sweet home cards, just to name a few I’ve done. I hope Lisa puts out a few more sets to match and complete this set! I’m thinking a coffee table and some ottomans. Congrats on PTI’s 3rd anniversary!

  • 248
    Opal A. says:

    My favorite stamp set from 2009 is easily the 2009 Holiday Tags Collection. I used this stamp probably 50 times last Christmas to create wonderful tags for holiday gifts. I can’t wait to see the tags for 2010!

  • 249
    Sonia Holland says:

    It is so hard to pick just one!
    I love so many of the designs you have come out with…but the set I turn to most often is “Life”. It is organic, versatile, clean and simple. Perfect for all occasions. Thanks for a great year of inspiration!

  • 250
    Angy Hughes says:

    My favorite set for 2009 … oh that could be difficult. I absolutely love the concept behind the button bits line and I love using those stamps. But I also love coloring in the flower for Friends ’til the End. So many great sets that it is hard to choose just one. I challenge myself frequently to give love to old favorites as well and newbies to the collection.

  • 251

    Just leaving a comment. I downloaded the Adobe formated birthday images, but had no interest in installing another whatever-you-call it…Scibd, to access the others.

    My favorite set of this past year was: Beyond Basic Borders. I love Heather Nichols’ sets. They are so versitle in so many ways.

    Mindy says:

    It’s hard to choose a favorite set of 2009, but I’ve used Turning a New Leaf over and over again! I love using it for a subtle background design or as an accent for a sentiment. All of the background sets have so much fun!

  • 267
    Marge R. says:

    My fav 2009 set (and one I’m continuously borrowing as I still don’t own it) is Tea for Two. I’ve found it to be so versatile for so many occasions. Because I LOVE so many more sets than my craft budget will allow, it’s always a tug-of-war when I do order between those & the need for paper, etc., but still a “battle” I always look forward to!

  • 268
    Lisa S. says:

    My fav set of 2009: Holiday Tree. My friend used this set for her fabulous Christmas Cards. Of course all of the sets are so nice. Each time I look at your website I’m inspired and I have all of you to thank for that!!!

But I also love Signature greetings, Damask Designs and all the button bits, and, and, and……… I absolutely love everyone of the sets I have purchased and the many that are still on my wish list!

  • 273

    That’s a tough question- I dearly love ALL my PTI stamp sets. My “go to” set recently though, has been Damask Designs. I love, love, love that one! That said, my MOST favorite seasonal set is Tiny Treats: Valentine (that is THE most fun I’ve ever had with a stamp set, and I’m still playing with it)!

    It is simply impossible to pick my favorite set from last year. I have several of them and love them all for different reasons. Life is just soft and elegant. My button bits sets are fun and whimisical. My Heavenly Medley set is inspiring and uplifting. Take note is practical and fun for gift giving.

  • 282
    Donna de Peyster says:

    My favorite set for 2009 would be With Sympathy. I’m on the road almost 100% of the time and it filled a hole in my travel stamps. The images can be used for many other things. I ‘discovered’ PTI at CHA last summer and am now addicted. They are perfect for on the road projects. Thank you so much!

    Shay says:

    I love reading all about the stamp designers and having the oppurtunity to download some of their designs to use to celebrate Papertrey Ink’s birthday. Choosing just one favorite stamp set from 2009 is nearly impossible…perhaps Home Made, Vintage Labels, Guide Lines II, Simply Stationary, all the Button Bits, all of the Background Basics…as you can see I think everything by Papertrey Ink is pretty darn fabulous!

  • 286
    Katerfly says:

    My favourite set from 2009 has to be damask designs. I wasn’t sure at first if I would use the set over and over again, however I have found it to be very versatile and I love the vintage feel you get.

    A close second is Take Note, i just love being able to create those little note books.

    It is so hard to pick my favorite as I LOVE all of the PTI stamp sets…..I would say my favorite was vintage picnic and vintage picnic sentiments with Autumn Abundance coming in next. Can’t wait to see what is in store for us this year. PTI ROCKS!!!!!!

  • 291
    Marcia Truslow says:

    My most used sets are Fancy Flourishes and Turning a New Leaf, so they must be my favorites. However, In Bloom, Life, and the Button Bits sets are right up there also. How does one choose just ONE from all the fabulous sets of 2009????

  • 301
    Jean Cross (naturecoastcrafter) says:

    I have really started buying more PTI stamps. The major reason is that I submit to card publications and so often “other” stamp companies’ images are retired. I have used Signature Greetings so many times. It’s a lifesaver and I’m not sure this was a 2009 or not, but I love “Through the Trees.” Happy Birthday and Congratulations to all the new illustrators and designers.

  • 302

Guess I’d have to go with Damask Designs over all… so versatile and making backgrounds is just fun πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for the chance to win, I LOVE PTI anniversaries!

    It’s hard to pick just one. I guess my favorite set is either In Bloom or Friends till the End. Vintage Picnic is close too.

    annheidel says:

    Just one? Seriously??? That’s a tough choice. I absolutely love Home Made and all the Button Bits sets, but then I also love On My Couch and Scattered Showers and a whole bunch of others! Congrats to the new designers. I can’t wait to see all the new stuff this year!

  • 339

    Such a tough question when you loved them all, but I guess my absolute favorite is the Take Note set. I have had so much fun creating all types of little notebooks for friends, family and myself πŸ™‚ I’m such a list person, so this was right up my alley!

  • 340
    Heather B says:

    Well, that’s a toughie- but I guess I’d say cupcake collection because it combines my 2 favorite things – cupcakes and stamping! Such sweet sentiments on that one!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    My favorite PTI stamp set of 2009 was the first PTI stamp set I ever bought – Everyday Button Bits. It was just too cute to pass up. And the set is so versatile. I have used it a lot. The great quality of the stamps has converted me from a die-hard rubber stamper to a clear stamper.

    Btw… I have purchased four additional PTI stamp sets since then plus lots of paper πŸ™‚

    I can’t participate today due to my real job (stupid real job) but thank you for the chance to enter with a comment.

    My FAVORITE (AND ALL TIME FAVORITE) 2009 stamp set is button bits. I LOVE buttons. Really, I love them way too much so a stamp set that lets me use them even more often almost sent me overboard. πŸ™‚

    Gotta say my favorite set is With Sympathy. I find the images and sentiments make the most beautiful cards. It is very difficult for me to find the right words to incorporate in such a sad card but you have eased that burden with this set! Thanks.

    I had so many favorites from 2009, if I had to choose, it would be Everyday Button Bits. I love the mix of the cursive font with the clean type and all the images. It’s one of those sets that just inspires me to make the best projects I can!

  • 360
    Anne G says:

    My favorite was Through the Trees. As soon as I saw the first sneak peak I knew I had to have it. So versatile and it’s a good set to use for masculine cards.

  • 361
    Jolene S says:

    Favorite stamp set? Really? Is that even possible???

    Of those that I own, it’s a toss up between Vintage Ornaments (and additions) or Vintage Labels. I have gotten more miles out of those 2 sets!

    Of those that I haven’t yet purchased, probably, Scattered Showers (and additions), Backgroung Basics: Text Style, Polka Dot Basics (either of them), Damask Designs…. I honestly could go on and on but I’ll stop there.

    Thank you PTI!!!

  • 362
    Holly Field says:

    Happy Birthday, PTI!!!

    I have to agree it is hard to pick just one stamp set! If I had to pick, it would be Scattered Showers. I have used this set quite a bit. I just love the fun sentiments πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the opportunities to win.

  • 370
    Amy Johnson says:

    2 DAYS? Thats It? O.k. first of all, I get your blog updates by email, so I get them one day late after you post them. Then, I didn’t get home from work till 6:00 p.m. of which then I had to spend some time with my family, make supper, laundry, etc. Today, back to work again. Then, I finally sit down to look at my email and see this fun contest which I would HAVE LOVED to play along with, only to discover that I only have until tomorrow morning to play, I mean COME ON! Have some sympathy for the working woman. Give us at least a week to play! Why the rush?
    Well, I guess I’m unable to play along, but I did visit everyone’s blogs and download their graphics, except for Tiffanys. I don’t have the adobe flashplayer, and cannot seem to upload it, so I was unable to get that one. Thanks for all the freebies.
    My favorite stamp set of 2009 was Button and Bits!

  • 371
    Leslie VanHorn says:

  • 375
    Mindy says:

    My favorite would have to be a tie between With Sympathy (I seem to pull that out all the time for many other reasons other than just sympathy cards) and Fancy Flourishes. I use that one all the time too – the perfect finishing touch!

  • 376
    Tracey McNeely says:

    Just one? Not even, but I will tell you that Everyday Button Bits is at the top of my wish list right now. Thank you to all of the designers sharing with us today. I am going to try to get one or maybe seven cards done tonight. Happy Birthday PTI!

    First of all–HAPPY 3RD ANNIVERSARY. It has really been a fun 3 yrs. It is so so hard to choose a favorite, but I would have to say Everyday Button Bits/Holiday Button Bits. It is really a tie for me. I’ve used both alot.

  • 392
    Taheerah says:

    My gosh, how can I possibly pick just one favourite set from last year?! I feel like I’m cheating on all my other sets, lol.

    I think I’ll go with Guide Lines Two – still one of my most used and versatile sets! But then they all are!

  • 393
    Marisa G says:

    I can’t believe you are making us choose one favorite set! I think mine would have to be Damask Designs. But, there are so many others that I often reach for…it’s a tough decision.

  • 394

    Damask Designs is my all-time favorite PTI stamp set. I love it so much!

  • 396
    Jo Eades says:

    Hmmm, it’s going to be hard to pick just 1 favourite set, but I think I will have to say Damask Designs. It arrived yesterday, can’t wait to put it to use. (along with my Giga Guide lines, which would be my next favourite this year)

  • 397
    Mary B says:

    I’ve spent time all day trying to decide my favorite set of 2009 – it’s so hard! I suppose it would be On My Couch, which just barely beats out at least a half dozen other lovely sets. Mega Mixed Messages gets inked the most, though. Congrats on 3 years, and thanks for the chance to win!

  • 398
    toomanycrayons says:

    Man this is a hard question. I really like the different sets to make tags or focal points on cards. Thanks so much for the downloads!

  • 401
    elana k says:

    Hmm…this has been my first full year as a PTI customer and, as my wallet can attest to, many many stamps were must-haves! But, I’ll say my favorite release is Background Basics: Text Style, simply for the use it gets. I use this set (and its counterpart set) on tons of projects and never get sick of it.

  • 402
    Anemone says:

    I’m not sure I can choose just one – I LOVED all the button bits sets! But if I have to pick………well, I guess Everyday Button Bits wins.

  • 403
    Janet S says:

    Although it is hard to pick a favorite mine for this year was Tea For Two. I have used that over and over and always get a nice comment about how lovely my item is. Second favorite would be the button sets. They are so unique and I love using them. I love how PTI has such a variety of stamp sets but also so elegant. Thank you.

  • 404
    Carol W. says:

    This is an extremely hard question Nichole! If I can only pick one set, I think I would choose…Take Note. I love those little notebooks, and I especially love the fact that I can now personalize them with this awesome stamp set!

  • 405

    WOW – fabulous designers!! Can’t wait to see each of their stamp sets as they all have such great style!

  • 406
    Dixie C. says:

    I LOVED them all in 2009!!! There were so many fantastic sets. I guess my favorite was Home Made since that was one of the few stamp sets I bought last year (Hi, My name is Dixie and I am a stamp-a-holic).

  • 407
    C Burke says:

    My favorite set of 2009 has to be Damask Designs. I love the simple and classic images which I can and will use from now on. I have to say that I like many of the other sets I’ve purchased too, though!

  • 414
    Carrie Croy says:

    Oh thank you for letting us leave comments. My scrappy days are limited to just the weekends so I won’t be able to submit something in time. I will, however, probably download the cool images and use them later. My absolute favorite of 2009 was **Fancy Flourishes**. I can not live without it! I think everyone must own it. I am still finding new ways to use it and embellish other stamps in my stash. No other flourish sets are as pretty and versatile in the sizes offered.

  • 415
    Linda W says:

    Deepa says:

    How to limit myself to only ONE favorite? I think every month’s release becomes my new favorite πŸ™‚ One set I’m particularly drawn to is Life – I really liked the silhouette images and the sentiments in that set. A close second is Tea for two, because I adore all sorts of teacups and teapots and that set had fabulous lines!!

  • 428
    Amy G. says:

    I’m going to say that Fancy Flourishes is my favorite, but really my favorite is whichever set I’m using at the moment. I LOVE my PTI stamps and how they all work together to make me happy, happy, happy!

  • 429
    Barbra says:

    As I sell “Longaberger” baskets, I love the “Vintage Picnic”! It works perfectly with my business! There are so many sets that Papertrey has made that I love but I love the fact that I can mix two of my most adored pastimes, baskets and stamping!

  • 456

    My favorite set of the year was Holiday Button Bits! When that set was released, it was the first time I stayed up until midnight with all the other Release Party partiers to make my purchase. I already owned Everyday Button Bits, and was tickled pink that you decided to develop the concept further.

    Paula Carr says:

    My favorite set (gosh, do I have to pick just one?) would be Fancy Flourishes, that’s my go to set time and time again! I can’t wait to see what 2010 brings!

    Anika B. says:

    Hmm…How to choose just one!?! Well I guess the one that is the most stained by my red and pink inks is Polka Dot Basics II, so I guess that must be my favorite! Although Fancy Flourishes is a close second! Thanks for making my first year as a card maker great! I never knew there were so many possibilities when I started out with this little hobby!

    Kat Gomez says:

    I really love ALL stamps that combine with a punch or die.. and when I saw the “vintage labels” I was soooo excited that finally someone made a stamp to combine with the Nestie’s!! I sooooo hope to see some more of the images to combine with the rest of the Nestabilities labels series as they are all so cool!! thanks so much.. tu amiga Kat..

    Nerina says:

    This one is tough. What I love about PTI is that I don’t get ‘hung up’ on a set. I see opportunities to mix and match things from everything….so a favourite?? Hmmmm. I’m going to say Turning a New Leaf, because it has so many possibilities….but I will probably have changed my mind by tomorrow (or in 5 minutes time!) :0)!

    corinna says:

    My favorite 2009 stamp set is Say It with Style. I just love that font!! And I got to use it to make your birthday card that I linked above. Congrats and blessings for a wonderful Birthday!

    Lisa says:

    My fave and most anticipated stamp set of 2009 was definitely a three way tie for Signature Christmas, Turning a New Leaf, and Winter Swirls. I LOOOOVE Christmas, so the those were no surprise to me, however Turning a New Leaf got me WAY too excited for release that month! These were a ‘HAVE to have, no questions asked, on release night!’

  • 473

    My favorite stamp set this year was Everyday Button Bits! Love it and use it all the time!

  • 474
    Dana says:

    Lori Hofferbert (loricabo) says:

    While it is so hard to pick just 1 set, I would have to say In Bloom is my favorite. I just love the flowers in this set. I wish I could participate in the cardmaking, but we just moved & I haven’t unpacked my craft supplies yet.

  • 476
    Natalie S says:

    Everyday Button Bits…that’s my 2009 fav since a girl can NEVER have too many buttons and this set gives us all a great way to use them!

    Karen G says:

    My goodness, there are so many fantastic PTI sets from 2009! I think that I would have to say my favorite 2009 stamp set release is Lisa’s set, Life!! I love many, but that one always makes me smile! :> Oh…I better go quick…before I switch my answer back to Dawn’s Damask Designs!!
    :> lol

    Kimberly S says:

    There were so many favorites from 2009. If I have to pick one, I am going with Star Prints. I love the font, and the versatility, and that it works with a punch!

  • 481
    Kimberly L says:

    Wow – so many cards already! It’s hard to pick a favorite – the favorite that I own is the Everyday Button Bits…and a favorite that I want to get yet (after seeing the wonderful inspirations), is Damask Designs.

    Happy Anniversary!

Trying to pick a favorite PTI set is really difficult but I know the ones I have used again and again and dearly love are Everyday Button Bits and Vintage Picnic. Thanks for continuing to provide the best products and priceless inspiration. Happy 3rd Birthday!

  • 486
    Jennifer W. from Illinois says:

    I like a lot of sets from 2009 but the one that stands out as my favorite was the Take Note set. It was so smart to have the note pads to sell along with this set! Maybe if I start now, I can have my note pads done for Christmas 2010!

  • 487
    Victoria N. says:

    I really wish I could have played along with the challenge and made a card. I’m currently without a computer at home, so I’m not able to post anything to my blog.

    Anyway, it’s really difficult to choose just one favorite set from all that were released last year. I loved them all! The one set that saw the most ink was probably In Bloom. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 488

    My favourite is Background Basics: Text Style II because I can use it for pretty much anything!

  • 489
    Deanna says:

    Lupe Rocamora says:

    Thanks for the free downloads! Unfortunately, I don’t have time to make a card before the deadline. My favorite set is the Everyday Button Bits. I think I’ve ordered buttons every month to go with the stamp set. It is so much fun to incorporate buttons with the stamp set. Thanks again for the wonderful ideas and inspiration.

  • 496
    Linda E says:

    Turning a New Leaf is my favorite. But then again, it’s hard to pick just one.

  • 497
    Shirlann says:

    As much as I love ALL my sets and buttons!…I’d have to say Vintage Picnic for images because I love to paper piece and use my Copic markers. My favorite sentiment set is Handwritten Notes for its versatility. I’m sure that will change as I continue to challenge myself with others! Thanks for adding a little more sunshine to my day….every day I visit!

  • 498

    Tough call. I probably use Mega Mixed Messages the most from 2009. I really like In Bloom and Giga Guidelines also. Happy Anniversary!

    I’m not sure I could pick just one set to be my favorite, but I guess, if I had to pick one, it would have to be Everyday Button Bits. I just love this set.

    Alyssa S says:

    Thank you for all the freebies! My fave for 2009 is a toss up – either Guidelines II and FRiEnDs ’til the end. Both are fabulous for their own reasons! Thanks for all the inspiration and the chance!!

  • 509
    Lizzie Jones says:

    I think I am most excited about Through The Trees. I don’t know if that’s because it is still new and fresh in my mind, but I totally adore that set. I use natural themes like they’re going out of style and I have so many plans for the set. I love stamps that can work for men and women alike and Through The Trees really gives me that versatility I crave. Of course, I love everything I’ve ever ordered from Papertrey, but that’s my current favorite!

  • 510
    LindaH says:

    There were so many it would be hard to choose, but I love Take Note, because I love to make notepads, etc for gifts to give. Thanks for the constant inspiration.

    This is so hard to narrow down, but if I have to pick one it would be Everyday Button Bits. I loved the concept the moment I saw the first sneak peek! I have loved every one of the button bits sets since…keep ’em coming!!

  • 517

    ‘On My Couch’ seems to be my favorite.
    Although, I love, love, love ‘Bitty Baby Blessings’ but I’m not sure when it was released.
    Now I am in love with ‘Baby Button Bits’!

    Great job and Happy Birthday!

    Wow. It’s really hard to pick just one set from 2009. I think I’ll go with Mod Squad. But I want to add Damask Designs, Giga Guide Lines, Say it with Style, and Everyday Button Bits as runners-up!

  • 519
    Staci Miserlian says:

    I think Damask Designs was my favorite set. It has gotten the most ink, for sure!!

    I’m really looking forward to seeing Becky’s stamps this year. I love her style and know from her preview that I’m going to love her stamps too. I’ve always loved illustrators and think it’s wonderful she’s following a dream. You go girl!!

    Borders and corners (all of them) and two for tea. That’s for starters. It’s a good thing I don’t get paid to pick favorite stampsets.

  • 530
    Colleen says:

    It is way too hard to pick a single favorite set from 2009. But if I have to pick, I would say Blooming Button Bits. I don’t generally gravitate toward flower sets, but I love the images in this set.
    Other favorites: Cupcake Collection, Beyond Basic Borders, Vintage Ornaments, ok I love ALL of the sets!

  • 531
    Stacie says:

  • 533

  • 534
    Lynn says:

    It is a close race on my favorite sets….my top three are mega mixed messages, fancy flourishes and turning a new leaf…but I think turning a new leaf wins…I have used that on so many cards this year – I love that there are all different size leaves…just perfect!

  • 535
    Carol says:

    There are so many favorites sets, but if I have to choose just one. I love tags as I use the tags for my favorite pastime of baking. I own four sets from 2009. I love sayings also and my Mixed Messages get lots of use. I have both the small and big set. I wish I could join the download project, but my time is so limited. I will have to download as save for the weekend to play and have fun! Thanks for the chance to win some more PTI stamps, just love them!

    Sarah says:

    Your anniversary marks my first year as a loyal Papertrey customer…I “found” you last year just as your anniversary celebration was ending. I had no idea what kind of addiction I was about to develop! Let’s just say…ummm…I have so bought so many stamp sets it’s difficult for me to choose my favorite. I love them all! The very first purchase I made was Beyond Basic Borders, and I still find myself going back to it over and over. I’m not sure I could say it is my favorite, but it is definitely up there with Everyday Button Bits, Vintage Labels and Holiday Signature Greetings. Thanks so much for everything you do for us!! The details do not go unnoticed!

  • 537
    Susan says:

    It’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite, but I have to say I go to Damask Designs for so many projects. I love it for a simple card or used repeatedly as a background.

    I’m so sad that I can’t participate in the card-making. πŸ™ I wasn’t able to print it properly on my printer — it kept getting smudged. I love all the PTI sets. Though I don’t own it, I love Vintage Picnic. πŸ™‚

    Mr. Linky certainly is magical — my entry for the emboss resist challenge ended up here by mistake! πŸ™‚ Oops! But while I’m here, about that favorite set of 2009? Favorites are SO hard to choose, but the first one that comes to mind is Turning a New Leaf. I know I will use it many times!
