January Blog Hop Tomorrow!

By January 24, 2011General

Tomorrow we are excited to present the BIG monthly Blog Hop that Papertrey Ink hosts for all of it's talented customers to show off their skills! 

The Blog Hop is now an ALL DAY EVENT!  A new link list will be posted here on my blog at 10am EST and you can add your link anytime up until 11:30pm EST.  And don't worry if you aren't going to get a chance to make a project and play along, there will be a contest for non-participants as well over in our forum in the designated thread. I hope that I will see many of your familiar faces over here tomorrow! I look forward to seeing all of your creativity!

All of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers through their personal blogs.

The actual Blog Hop will take place tomorrow, January 25th, beginning @ 10am EST. 

You will explore individual blogs through a thread here, on my blog, beginning at 10am EST tomorrow. 


 A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products. 


With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions.  This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust!  Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold.  If you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of each set's sale page on our website, or go to the Previous Countdown page here on my blog where each set is organized by month of release.  2011 is the year where what's old is new again!


 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am EST and 11pm EST on January 25th within the link list that will be posted.The title of your post should be "Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge".

-Customers & participants alike can peruse all of the links and absorb all of the amazing inspiration that will be shared!

-After you have made your way through the list, simply return to our forum and participate in all of the fun!

-You can chit chat with everyone in the Blog Hop forum! Take this time to praise your peers efforts, discuss anything new you might have learned and which projects really offered something unique!

-The three random blogger participant winners will be announced Wednesday morning on our forum and highlighted here on my blog!

-You can enter our Blog Hop Forum contest. There will be a special thread posted in our forum specifically for this purpose asking a question. Please only post once, as the winner will be picked via the Random Number Generator. The forum contest will end at midnight EST and the winner announced in the morning within the thread.

-Create a project while you are here, using the new inspiration you have gathered from the Blog Hop. You can post your projects in the gallery, even if you do not have a blog! We are looking forward to all the fun tomorrow and we hope to see you there!

    The “Tea for Two” Additions set was fabulous! A whole new world has opened up to me this year. I never thought I would enjoy stamping, but Papertrey has totally changed me! I paired the set mentioned with the “Tea for Two” and made a set of 4 different cards for my ladies eat-out group, which is called “THE SWANS”. I put them in the clear plastic boxes from Papertrey, added herbal teas with each card, wrapped them with ribbon and gave them as Christmas presents to THE SWANS. I now have two little grandsons born this past year and hope to do LOTS of stamping for them. Thank you for this great experience!

    Hi from Cambridge, England! Discovered Papertrey this year – love everything, so difficult to choose a favourite. I think the intro of dies to match is GENIUS and I covet them all! Not very exciting, but the stamp set I come back to again and again is Polka Dot Basics II – great for envelope liners as well as cards. Looking forward to what Papertrey has to offer us this year – my bank manager, not so much!!

    I love the limitless layers dies for 2010! Friends and I just got together last night to make valentine’s for charity and we used two sets in our production line … high quality tools with great design – can’t ask for more! I can’t wait to see what this year brings.

    What’s not to like?!? I recently discovered PaperTrey much by accident.I had seen a card designed from a gal in Austrailia (Less is More is her website) about a background layer on a card, she tells me it’s a die from PTI – what is PTI? Well I’m in heaven, my list of “wants” grows by the day. I have saved the designer’s website as my favs, full so many wonderful ideas, you are truly blessed to have such a great team that continue to give more and more – thank you for such a wonderful website that you offer, but then the products – and to win something from PTI, oh holy cow – I’m in heaven. Thank you for all you offer. I got to say the dies are one of my favs, then the stamps………..

    I’ve long admired Papertrey Ink’s stamps, and colour combinations. I couldn’t stand it any longer i finally took the plunge and bought my first 2 sets of stamps with matching dies. I don’t think they were released in 2010, but they were new to me. I agonised for days over choosing which lovely things would be coming to live at my house, and ended up with Tree Trimming Trio and Vintage Ornaments, both with the matching dies. I checked my mailbox daily for 3 weeks…when the finally arrived I was delighted. The quality did not disappoint. I shut myself in my craft room and about 4 hours later emerged with beautiful Christmas cards. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what you guys are doing…and if shipping wasnt so expensive to Canada I’d have a serious Papertrey Ink habit instead of the lovely little indulgences from time to time. Keep up the good work!

And what a great & generous download! Many thanks!

    I have been with you from the beginning! My favorite (I think from all, not just this year) is Friendship Jar. It is so versatile and the endless possibilities it poses for the future . . . leaves one salivating at the prospect. Thank you for the quality products and to the talented ladies who never cease to offer their talents as inspiration. I look forward to destressing with your blogs nightly.
    Papertrey, a cup of tea and thee! Ahhhhh . . .

    I love all of the papertrey dies but the one I reach for again and again is the Just the Ticket die. Along with the coordinating stamp set I can mini sentiments or embellies that go great on cards or gift tags. I love it when the design team uses them too, great inspiration!

    Jeanie says:

    Love all of them but my favorite 2010 product is Up, Up and Away. My favorite overall is With Sympathy:Loss of Child. It is sensitive without being depressing. Thanks for your great products and ideas.

    Hi! Last year, I saw a beautiful card that had a link to your site and have been a fan ever since. My favorite is the Papertrey limitless layer dies. They are so so versatile and the cuts are crisp!!! I always look forward to the 15th to see the new reveal… it’s like Christmas every month:-) More power to the PTI team and thank you for the inspiration!!!

    I think that A Wreath For All Seasons is favorite 2010 stamp set. I have made so many different country charmed wreath cards and my Christmas thank you’s with a wreath beautiful. I even used this set to create a unique, customized background paper for my 2011 desktop calendar for the month of November. I just love it! Thank you!
