Day 3: Introducing Kelly Purkey & The BIG Contest!

By February 2, 2010General

All of you have shared with us how much you have enjoyed our Distinguished Guest Designer program that we began last year.   We are excited to continue the momentum into 2010 as well.


I feel like a giddy little school girl with this year's first introduction.  Miss Kelly Purkey, (also known as KP) scrapbooker extrordinaire, will be joining us for the next two months on a ride that will surely be unforgettable.  Not only does Kelly's creativity have an amazing depth to it, but so does her personality.  I have enjoyed reading her blog for a while now, kind of feel like a long time friend with the way she reaches out and grabs the attention of her readers.  It is my honor to introduce you to her today, as we all wait with baited breath to see what wonders Kelly creates using Papertrey products!  She will be sharing some of her masterpieces with you on the 14th, so be sure to keep an eye out!

Without further ado, here's Kelly!


Kelly says, "I remember the day I discovered my Grandmother's scrapbooks and was so delighted to have this glimpse into her life.  It all became clear exactly why I take so many photos, save each piece of paper, and try to record every aspect of my life as a young single girl."


"I am lucky to currently live in New York City, where there is inspiration around every corner.  Besides scrapbooking, I love traveling, curling up with a good book, laughing with friends, and cupcakes with lots of icing.I'm honored to be designing for American crafts and Fiskars, as well as being a part of the 2008-2009 Creating Keepsakes Dream Team and 2007-2009 Garden Girl at Two Peas in a"


"The thing I love most about this hobby is the amazing women that I've met in the industry.  I've made best friends for life with people I've only met online and one of my closest friendships was formed on a design team five years ago.  One of the pleasures about teaching is meeting women around the world and seeing how much they love this hobby.  I'm so lucky and thankful to be able to do this as a full-time career and couldn't imagine doing anything else."

Thank you again for joining us, Kelly!  I know I am not alone when I say that it is truly an honor to have you stopping by for a visit!  

Now's YOUR chance to let Kelly know how happy you are to see her here! Stop by HER BLOG today to have your chance at winning an amazing prize package!  $100 worth of Kelly's Papertrey Favorites!


Here's how to win!

1. Go to Kelly's blog (and if it's your first visit, be sure to click around a bit and explore!)

2. Leave a comment ON HER BLOG before 7am EST, Thursday, February 4th, welcoming her to the family! (Leaving a comment here on my blog, although welcomed, will not enter you to win her prize package!)

3. Stop by the February Release Winners page after noon EST on Thursday to see if you've won!

Now there's ONE more announcement to make before I leave you for the day…


We've offered this prize each year and we decided to continue the tradition in 2010.  Only this year, it is a bigger value than ever!  A retail value of over $2,000!  


1. All you need to do is CLICK HERE to go to the special database we have set up on our website and enter to win!  Be sure to stop by before noon EST on February 14th to get your entry in to qualify!

2. Everyone is eligible, no matter their location around the globe!

3. We have automatic filters set up to delete duplicate entries.  If you are concerned that your entry did not go through, please feel free to resubmit.  Our software will omit your second submission if the first one has already gone through.

4. One lucky winner will be randomly selected from all of the entries we receive.

5. The winner will be announced on our homepage on release night!  Just think, you could see YOUR name in lights AND never have to decide which stamps to purchase again, because you'll get 'em ALL!

Thanks for stopping by today and playing along with all the fun & games!  Tomorrow I have something really BIG to share with you!  Something all new for Papertrey that's gonna allow you to become even more involved in the Papertrey family!  

So tune in tomorrow!  Oh, and I'd love to hear from you!  Are you having a good time so far?  Are you getting up a bit earlier in the morning like me to see what the latest excitement is (I love getting up early just to read your comments!).  What do you think might be in store for you over the next week? Only time will tell!

    Hi Nichole!! I’m not getting up earlier, I’m staying up later!! LOL!! I’m in central time zone so it isn’t too late. Yes, thank you, I am having a GREAT time!!! I so LOVE PTI!!!! I just joined a blog group from the forum, I mentioned to them the other day, I’ve been buying since the 2nd release I think, for the longest time I was scared to use the stamps, now I can hardly think of making a card without your stamps!!! I so love everything PTI and it was such a pleasure to meet you in Orlando last year, you and the rest of the gang are truly the nicest and sweetest ladies!!! Thank you for all you do and your generosity!!!

    Wow! How exciting! I don’t think I had discovered PTI at this time last year but so glad I did! I love love love your company and have to admit I’m a little obsessed! The creations are so wonderful and I’m sitting by my computer down to the last second when the new post will come up – I’m so pathetic! But its so much fun! Can’t wait for the big announcement! My guess is some digital stamps!

    I am having an incredible time with this celebration. Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration and chances to win my absolute favorite line of card making and crafting products out there. I know you must spend so much time behind the scenes setting this up, so thank you for all your work–the blog and cards definitely put a smile on my face!

    Nope, don’t have to get up early. It’s 4.00 pm the afternoon here in Australia πŸ™‚ It’s been great so far, I’m excited that KP is joining Papertrey as guest designer and can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

    Kim says:

    I think my boss must be catching on to my tired eyes at the same time of the month each month. He probably thinks it’s something “female,” but it’s all about PTI! I stay up to see the new posts each night during a countdown and on release night. I am relatively new to this addiction, and my addiction includes so many Papertrey Ink products! I absolutely love the style and all the inspiration from Nichole and the entire design team. Thank you for all of your generosity during this anniversary release. I can hardly wait for tomorrow night. πŸ™‚

    Becky P. says:

    Congratulations! I have only been a devoted customer for the past two years, but you and your DT have taught me so much, and my stamping style has grown and improved dramatically in that time. Thanks!

    I have seen a huge push in video tutorials over the past couple of months, so I am going to guess that you are going to make your countdown projects on video, to teach us even more. That would be great by the way, if I am right!

    Well I’m not getting up earlier but staying up later. I am enjoying seeing all of the new things that are happening at PTI. I just wish I had the courage and get up to start posting cards in the gallery or maybe even starting my own blog. But you know we are always our own worst critic. Am looking forward to see what’s coming up next.

    stamp on…

    So loving the celebration! I can’t wait to see what’s next- this contest really takes the cake! I love everything PTI! Thanks for all of the tutorials, new techniques and awesome ideas. I’m so glad my friend told me about Nicole’s blog and PTI, I’v een following for almost a year now and I love all that do every release.

    I too am not getting up earlier, but staying up later. Yes. I am having a great time with everybody celebrating PTI’s 3rd birthday. Thank you for all your work for the great celebration and fun. I am really really glad that I found your blog and PTI. And thank you for the prizes, too. I can’t believe my eyes when I saw the prize of a whole year free stamps. PTI is really generous. Happy Birthday!!!!

    Pat Marsh says:

    Congratulations on your third year! I was one of your earlier customers and have loved every minute of it…PTI ‘s inspiration, creativity, and anxiously awaiting the releases each month. I am in CST, would go to bed about 10:00 P.M., and would sneak into my scrap room to log on (after midnight) just to check on the new releases on the 15th of each month. Of course I could not go back to sleep because I was too busy making a wish list in my head!! Congratulations again, and keep those new releases coming!!!

    Brooke says:

    I’m certainly giddy with excitement. At least until my hubby comes home to find that dinner isn’t cooked and the dishes aren’t done! I can’t wait to see Kelly’s projects. One thing I really love about PTI and the design team and guest designers is the range of styles they cover. It’s incredibly inspiring.

    One little question: is it possible to put a clock on our blog? I’m in Australia and am always getting mixed up with time zones, etc.

  • 26

    Good morning Nicole! I am still up on Tuesday night. It isn’t terribly late yet in Kansas and I always love to peek at the latest announcements. In answer to your question, I am having a super great time! Loved the downloadable images by all the Senior Design team and actually made 4 cards today! Probably the most exciting recent event for me was when I joined one of the PTI blog groups. They are such a supportive, friendly group of women and I have enjoyed the chance to share my little obsession with fellow stampers. I found PTI 2 years ago and love everything about your wonderful company–the fabulous products and priceless inspiration. Huge thanks for all you do. Hugs!!

  • 27

    I was thinking about the anniversary celebration all last week and couldn’t hardly wait to see all fun new things pti has up their sleeve! Thanks for all the FUN!

  • 28
    Elizabeth B says:

    I am having so much fun already, but instead of waking up early, I’ve been staying up late (which makes it very hard to get up for work!!)! Thanks for such great opportunities to win such awesome prizes! Thanks for 3 years of inspiration and amazing projects from you and your wonderful design team! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the celebration will bring!

    April C. says:

    You certainly know how to throw a birthday bash and make it so exciting! Since I’m on the West coast, I don’t have to stay up late to check out the fun. Thanks for all the cool contests! As far as guessing what the big announcement is for tomorrow, I’m not a great guesser so I’ll just check in again tomorrow night and find out, lol! (Although since Kelly seems to be a scrapbooker, does it have something to do with scrapbooking?) Cool party, Nichole – thanks!

    Mary A says:

    Ahhh, yes… I’ve actually been a customer since early the first year — back when my inspiration notebook AND budget could keep up with the monthly releases! Gone are THOSE days! πŸ˜‰ I happened to see last night’s post and stayed up WAY TOO LATE to crank out some cards… SO, I should already be in bed but that would mean I’d miss tonight’s announcement… Free PTI for a year?!?!? I cannot even begin to dream what that would be like (but oh, how I would LOVE to find out!). You have built an amazing company and community — a paper-crafting “force” really — and your Team is amazing! I look forward to release week every month! Thanks for all you do!

    This is a fun ride, yes I’m enjoying it!!! But like some of the other posters, I’m staying up later instead of getting up early!

    ChrisTea says:

    Hi Nichole – yes, this is the best time of the year! I love how you build suspense at the anniversary release – and do not disappoint. I only wish I had more time to browse all the blogs, read every comment on the forum, make one of every challenge card… Congrats to you for being so FABULOUS.

  • 33
    Karla Kroese says:

    Staying up later to keep up with the excitement. I happened upon PTI last summer, and am so glad I did. Your excitement about this coming year is infectious! I can’t wait to see what’s in store! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and dedication to this hobby!

    irene says:

    You are celebrating your 3rd anniversary in a very special way and I love it. First the blog hop, yesterday the challenge and all the lovely free downloads and today KP so great. I’ve been reading her blog for a while now, most of the time lurking without commenting, and I have to say I agree with you, even though I don’t know here in person, she’s such an inspiring young woman and love her fun style of scrapbooking and vardmaking. Can’t wait to see what she’ll make with the Papertrey stamps. Bye and thanks for an other great day. Bye Irene from the Netherlands.

    Nothing exciting going on here, just a little snow and ice, and some cold rain. Is it Spring yet??? I love Papertrey products and have a long wish list for after our personal economy takes a turn for the better.

    I so enjoy the party!!! I wish I had more time to use the free images provided yesterday πŸ™‚

    This is my first February with PTI but I had already looked back on your blog to see what last year’s anniversary was like!! I’m loving the festivities this year, so very exciting!! You girls certainly know how to build suspense and excitement to a crescendo!!!

    I’m not offering any guesses as I know I’ll be way off, but I know that whatever it is I’ll more than love it!!

    And thanks for the chance to win free stamps for a year!! I know I’ll never be that lucky to win it but I’m praying I’ll be proven wrong!!

    I’m in Italy and I read your blog in the morning with a “cappuccino”.As Brooke from Australia said .. it’s hard to understand what time is it for you .. and for me πŸ™‚

    Happy to see Kelly here: I appreciated her layout on TwoPeas some years ago.


  • 56

    I’ve already gone over to her blog, but I wanted to say WELCOME to Kelly here as well.

    And of course I’ve already entered the contest. How amazing is that prize???

    Jo R. says:

    Ah Nichole, you’ve done it again! You keep teasing us with these tantalising snippets of goodness. I just love the buildup to release day each month, and this month is more exciting than usual. Keep up the exceptionally fabulous work!

  • 58
    Ann says:

    I can’t believe I only found PTI one year ago this month. You are now my No 1 blogger Nichole – I’m a follower and Capture the Moment is the first hit I go to every morning to see what wonderful projects you and the team have come up with. The only advantage to being in the UK is we don’t need to rise early to be here early – but I never can stay awake for the release party….. unless its at a weekend. Hmmm big news? What about a competition to design a stamp set!

  • 59
    Heidi S says:

    This is so much fun Nichole and the prizes are very generous!! I love reading about everyone on the new team. Your designs for the anniversary logos are stunning!

    Are you kidding? This is my favorite time of year! It is better than Christmas. So excited that KP is joining the Papertrey family for a few months. Thank you all that you do and I cannot tell you how much fun the release has been already. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • 61
    KeeKee says:

    OMG! This just keeps getting better and better! I LOVE KP! I’ve taken a few of the classes she’s had on another site and enjoyed them. I’m sure she’ll do an excellent job as your guest designer.

  • 62
    Cassandra says:

    Thank goodness for Paper Trey Ink, you are an amazing inspiration. Long may you keep producing such great work, and I am really looking forward to see what’s in store for 2010. I second Brooke’s comment about a clock, at the moment in Australia we have 5 time zones (for 6 months of the year) and that messes with my head, I guess you are all quite used to it.

    Terri E. says:

    I do adore this time of the year thanks to your wonderful company. I am prego right now, so 4 in the morning is my normal time. You are sure adding some pop to my boring 4 am LOL!

    Mariah says:

    Call me crazy but I slept with my IPhone next to my bed so I could read your blog first thing in the morning while I was feeding my little one. Exciting news and can’t wait to go to KP’s blog to look at more of her creations! And thank you PTI for all your generous contests!

    I am new to Papertrey Ink, but when I received my first order last week, I knew there was no going back!

    I love every month’s release, and I do plan extra time to explore all the PTI sites each day. This anniversary celebration is topping them all, and we haven’t even begun to see the new stamp sets!!! I was totally bummed yesterday that I had so many commitments I could only play with one designer birthday element, but I saved them all and plan to play later in the week! (And I did get up early today to check it all out before an 8:00 appointment!) Congratulations on your anniversary. This is the most inspiration site for card makers, and I love your products–each and every one!

  • 74
    Valerie C says:

    WOW,what an amazing oppurtunity!! I just can’t imagine being the winner of all the stamps. It would probably be like winning the lottery! PTI really is amazing! I truly enjoy coming here to your blog everyday and to the DT’s blogs. Thanks for everything!

    Laurie P. says:

    Wow, Nichole! I’m blown away by the prizes you’re offering for your 3rd anniversary. I just LOVE Papertrey Ink and have been spending a huge portion of my craft budget on your great stamps & products for a couple of years. I think you have one of the most creative and inspirational design teams out there, and your own projects continue to delight me each month. Keep up the great work, and all the best for 2010.

  • 77

    I’m having so much fun with this celebration and it is so exciting to see what’s happening early each morning! I can’t wait to see what’s in store πŸ™‚ Thank you for your tremendous generosity and the fun that you’ve infused into your business, making this such a great place to be!

    Cathy M. (Cathymac) says:

    Congratulation on three wonderful years! Your blog is one of the few I look forward to every day…can’t wait to see all the inspiration and talent diplayed there! I eagerly await the count downs each month until the release and then I’m up to place my order…always amazed that you’ve done it again! My poor pocketbook! Thanks for all the gererous opportunities for free stamp sets and supplies!

  • 79
    Oralia says:

    WOW! Pick me, please!! πŸ˜‰ What an awesome prize package!! I LOVE the ideas that come out of the blog, the PTI gallery, the designers, their blogs, etc. SO much to love about it all!!

    anne says:

    Good Morning. I thought you might get a chuckle out of this. Last night the water main in front of my house burst. I have been up most of the night because of the noise (they had to dig up my driveway). At 5:30 a.m. I came on line and have been reading your blog and enjoying it. One of the workmen had to ask me a question and when he looked in the window he said I had a grin from ear to ear and he couldn’t understand why I wasn’t mad. I told him I was visiting friends and he just shook his head. So you have taken the stress off what could have been an irritating and frustrating situation. Look forward to the anniversary celebration as I do your blog every day.

    Nichole, i’m itching at excitement for what tomorrow brings…part of the PTI family ……are you hiring ??!!

  • 82
    Susan says:

    I am loving every minute of this celebration! It’s great to see I’m not alone – I try so hard to stay up until midnight, but if I fall asleep early, I bound out of bed when my husband’s 5:00 a.m. alarm clock goes off. I’ve been a PTI fan (and customer) for years and I’m amazed that it just keeps getting better and better. My blog hopping is started everyday by visiting the PTI designers. To sum it all up… “A day without PTI, is like a day without sunshine”

    Good Morning Nichole
    It is 7am here in Pittsburgh and here I sit at my computer excited to see what today’s contest will bring. I have had such fun participating in this birthday celebration. Thank you for the opportunity to win such wonderful prizes. I am so inspired by PTI’s products. Happy third Birthday and I wish you many many more to come,

    I’m always excited every time I see a new entry on this blog, because there’s always new inspiration to be found here. Of course the past couple days have brought a new level of excitement with such generous give-aways, but I always come with a heightened sense of anticipation, wondering what I’ll find! Kelly has such an interesting blog and I’m glad to have added another good read after today’s post! I started with scrapbooking and gradually drifted into cardmaking, so I enjoyed seeing how she creates pages of herself… something I’ve never figured out how to do on my own. I can’t stop thinking of how those pages will be treasured keepsakes to leave for those who come after us! There’s always a great reason to stop by here, so thanks for it all!! πŸ˜€

    Getting up early… yes. Checking your blog is a must before work. PTI releases are always exciting, but the best time of the year is PTI Anniversary time. I’m positively giddy and thinking the gushing may be spilling over into my blog — I know it did yesterday. πŸ™‚ Thanks for all you do! You’re amazing.

    Again, another AWESOME giveaway! I think if I won this prize, someone would have to pick me up off the floor.

    I’m looking forward to more inspiration in 2010 than ever and I know you and the rest of the PTI gals can do it!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your creativity, your artistry, and your generosity. I appreciate the opportunity to win stamps for a year! OH MY GOODNESSES! Even Decker, my puppy, is excited! Regardless whether I win them or not, I am sure many of your new sets will find their way into my collection. Can’t wait for the new year to begin!

  • 96

    Wow, you guys have gone in head first this year. Papertrey is such an inspiration for all women, to strive for what is really important to them and keep trucking. Papertrey has become such an empire in the crafting world, I am so proud to be a woman. You ladies rock!!

    see mary stamp says:

    I’ve been looking forward to this year’s anniversary celebration since discovering PTI shortly before last year’s anniversary celebration. I love getting to hear about the new design team and stamp designers. I get excited about the wonderful Papertrey goodness to come and the contests and prizes are beyond compare. As for getting up earlier, my morning routine is always, get up, turn on the computer and relax with a cup of coffee or tea while I visit the blogs of my PTI friends. No need to change a good thing, although it does take me a little longer to get through the posts during release weeks and the Anniversary postings. {Grins} You do a phenomenal job of building excitement, and what’s even more important, you deliver on what you promise!!! Many thanks for letting us share in all this fun.

  • 98

I have so much admiration and respect for what you have accomplished over the past 3 years !! I love your products like no other, and was a very good customer for a while. Unfortunately hard times hit this house hard and it’s been a while since I’ve been able to purchase anything, but luckily your stamps are timeless and I can always find new ideas and uses for them. Thank you Nichole !!

    Kris Lindsay says:

    This is the best work week ever! My boss is out of town and I can hang out here and on the forum as long as I want. PTI is my favorite place to shop – just ask my husband! He’s hoping that I don’t acutally reappropriate the grocery money like I keep joking about = this may be the month though! I can’t wait to see what all you have for us.

  • 147
    Laura says:

    Nichole, yes, I’m *definitely* having fun! It’s great to have something to look forward to on a cold, dreary winter day — and I’ve been eager each day to see what was new. (I had planned to play along with yesterday’s fun challenge with the designers’ images — I even got some printed out and supplies chosen, but the Lost premiere was two hours long! Yes, TV lured me away from crafting for once. ha, ha)

  • 148
    Kristin Burge says:

    Hi- Great celebration so far! Can’t wait to see what else is coming!!!
    QUESTION – sometime (when things aren’t quite so crazy for you) could you put info on the blog about how & where to submit for the guest designer challenge? I’m thinking many of us would totally appreciate that. Thanks!!!!

    doramiyi says:

    I’m still waiting for a chance to jump on the PTI wagon. But so far what I’ve seen has me captured.

    I live in CANADA and right now with the way the economy is I just can’t justify the high shipping costs (not PTI’s fault of course).

    It would be totally awesome if by some far out chance I win the stamps for a year, that way I can really jump on the PTI wagon.

    Keep up the good work and keep spreading the letters PTI all over the industry.

    I couldn’t begin to imagine the things that you have come up with. There’s “shopping” which most women LOVE to do, and then there is “PTI Shopping Over the Edge!!!”! PTI doesn’t just go from on year to the next it “Leaps and bounds like a speeding bullet”! You make every month feel like Christmas which is FABULOUS. Yes, I am having fun. It is an honor to be a customer.

    I’m having a blast! I loved the scavenger hunt! I can’t believe you are offering a prize package with all of the 2010 released stamps. That’s crazy (in a very good way)! I visit your site daily and love the warmth, caring and personal touches that make you and the PTI designers feel like family rather than some anonymous person at the other end of a business transaction.

    Wow, I can’t believe how generous you are with your contests. I’d love to win a year’s worth of your stamp sets even though I’ve only been using them for several months.

    Oh my gosh-I think I would die and then would not be able to use the stamps at all. I guess I will be so excited to win a wonderful prize and be so blessed. Thank you for a wonderful gift to win.

    All the new developments are so exciting! BTW, I’m not sure my big contest entry is going through — I get a blank page when I submit, not a confirmation.

    I have now confirmed for at least myself, that the MAC web browsers SAFARI and FIREFOX do not work for this contest. I had to submit my entry at work where I use a PC and Windows Explorer. Just thought you may want to know about that.

    Suzanne says:

    Oh, Thanks Caroline! I use Firefox and tried to submit with Explorer….but now I’m getting a message “Sorry, the page you requested was not found.” ARGH….

    Honestly? Just as excited about your normal countdowns – that’s not an “ooh, you think you’re so special…..!!” but more a “ooh, you ARE so special !!!” (Plus I have a 3yr old DD, so I know how important being 3 is !)
    Congrats. You rock. Now go for world domination and open a store in the UK !!!

    This is such fun. I love the PTI stuff and find your blog (and all the other gal’s blogs) so inspiring. I don’t get to play anywhere near often enough – but I have “plans” for 2010.

    Congratulations – and keep that creative juice flowing.

    I have been on vacation since January 28th and without access to my computer. This celebration is so insanely amazing, I can hardly believe it. Wow, I may have missed my vacation had I known this was going to be so BIG!!!!!!!! Thanks for being the great company you are – willing to try new things and take on new challenges. Very cool.

    THANK YOU for all you do.
