February 2010 in a Nutshell…

By February 15, 2010General

Hello, everyone!  Happy release day!  Just a few notes for you as you do your shopping today!

—>Unfortunately, our new dies & impression plates sold out quite quickly due to a bigger demand than we anticipated.  We have a second shipment of both Fillable Frames #1 and all of the Scallop Border dies arriving at the end of this week.  The other shapes will be here in about 2 weeks.  Thank you for your enthusiastic response and I apologize for the inconvenience of the fast sell-out.

Single-flower  I have updated the "Previous Releases" list in my sidebar (which you can also access HERE) so that you can easily find and refer to any of my posts from the past two weeks.  I hope you will use the projects shared with you as inspiration to ink up your new stamps when they arrive!

Single-flower  My "day after" post will be coming soon!  I just needed to take a bit of a break today and enjoy some time with my family!  

Single-flower  The "Free Stamps for a Year" winner, Patti Gingrich, was announced on our homepage last night, just in case you missed it!  Congratulations, Patti!  I hope we will all get to see what you create with those monthly deliveries of Papertrey goodies!

Single-flower  I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of our customers who have participated in all of the festivities this week.  It is so exciting to have the opportunity to see your work, to hear how Papertrey has brought out the creative side in you, to see how much happiness you allow us to bring into your lives.  You are so passionate about our company, which gives us the stamina to keep bringing you the best!  So thank you, thank you, thank you for your loyalty and enthusiasm!  We appreciate you so much!

I hope you ALL have a wonderful, fabulous, inspired day!  :)

    What a wonderful party and release day!!!!!! The past two weeks have be so much fun and challenging. I know you and the entire Papertrey Team deserve a little free time to unwind. You all have given your all! We so appreciate all of your efforts. I was surprised when I ordered the die cuts about 12:05 am, they were no longer available. Wow! Great response! We are all truly passionate about Papertrey! Thanks again and again!!!!

    It’s pretty hard not to be passionate about Papertrey, Nichole! You always go out of your way to make incredible samples and the whole team follows their leader! Can’t wait for the new PTI colors of felt and all of the other wonderful products you keep coming up with! Thanks so much for all the festivities for this release!

    I am so happy the dies will be in so quickly. I had them in my cart and by the time I finished shopping, they were pulled back out and gone! I was so disappointed. I’m really looking forward to the scalloped long dies and the new embossing plates.

    SOLD OUT!!!!

    That’s always a good sign. PTI must be doing something right! LOL. Congrats!!! Everything you do is so fabulous and cutting edge. No pun intended. Hugs!

    Even though I didn’t stay up until midnight to get my scallop dies, I didn’t mind since I knew you would get more in soon. Another great reason to have items made in the USA.
    Very happy that PTI is doing so well. I sometimes tell your story to friends- of the Maine girl who has done so well for herself.
    Happy Anniversary!

    Ah, I see that everyone else has been so nice…congratulating you on an amazing 3rd anniversary release (so DESERVED), marveling at the amazing products for the month with promises of many more to come (so EXCITED), and wishing you a well-deserved time with your family! Alas, I must not be as nice….you see, I have gotten so used to seeing amazing products and art every day that I MISS getting up extra early and looking at your blog…and then jumping to the DT and the stamp/paper designers blogs…and then looking at the PTI website to see what OTHER stamps I should have purchased already. So while I KNOW in my heart of hearts that you deserve to spend quality time with your family, I so wish we were still seeing daily updates! (buy me, take me, show me, give me, that’s all I know!). 😉

    Hello Nichole,

    What a WONDERFUL month! This was the funnest release ever. 🙂 I simply love you’re products and I can’t wait to try out all the new stuff!

    I loved the card you made with the leaf image and the “If the future seems overwhelming” sentiment. I’ve recently started chemo treatment in my battle against breast cancer and I would love to purchase the card as a source of inspiration. It’s beauty grabbed me and just made me feel at ease. I look forward to hearing from you. You can reach me at miriamdaniels@sbcglobal.net

    Thank you for all your continued inspiration,

    WOW! I loved Lisa’s masking tutorial. I may just have to own all the PTI dies and coordinating stamps! There are very few companies that provide a die and stamp set! Leave it to PaperTrey to give us the goods! And cutting felt with the dies…yummy!

    Can’t wait to see next month’s release.

    Hi Nichole! I placed an order at midnight on the 14th and I still haven’t received my order. I don’t have a tracking number either. I was wondering if maybe my order slipped through the cracks? I’m sorry to pester you but I’m just so excited to get my fun, new things! If I had a tracking number I’d at least be able to know when it’s coming. I’m like a kid at Christmas. lol

    Thanks for all you do!! I wish PTI was in Utah and I’d work for you in a heartbeat! Even if it was just sweeping floors. 🙂

    Nicole you just have to realize Papertrey is more popular than you can imagine! I have gone to get things after the last few releases and unfortunately I wasn’t Johnny on the spot because whatever I was looking for was gone already. Of course I found something else at Papertrey to spend my money on. I have just gotten so addicted to Papertrey!
    Thanks for making such lucious products.
    Hugs to all of your talented designers and to you!

    Students do think that the analytical essay accomplishing seems to be the most time wasting process. But, students count on the sociology essay service support every time when that is needed.

    Thank you for the updates, lovely dies

  • 34

    I guess that there’s not a pretty good idea to write the analytical essay by own efforts! In fact, it will be easier to purchase the research essay at essay writing service, because that saves free time.
