    The challenges. The DT always inspires me with their jaw-droppingly beautiful work. But, the added challenge each day (and chance to win fab PTI goodies) was such a treat.

    EVERYTHING! …. Well, if i had to pick one thing, it would probably be the introduction of MIM. The cards have been awesome so far! I loved the sentiment challenge and that card you made this morning was just gorgeous. Personally, I am a very visual learner, so seeing the projects in a video makes them come alive! I can’t wait to try to stamp on some vellum.

    I also loved all the excitement and all the inspiration from you, the DT and everyone else. Just fabulous! Can’t wait to get my goodies tonight.

    my favorite aspect of 2011’s anniversary release has been the way you’ve allowed us to interact with YOU…challenges, radio and video posts. The “Make it Monday” videos are making my Mondays marvelous already! I love learning…especially from the best designers around!

  • 43
    Terri E. says:

    I liked the contests and challenges. Most of all I really appreicated that instead of promising more great things this year you went back and actually delivered on some that didn’t make it fruition from last year. Thank you for taking the time to grow gracefully and realize that getting things done well has value rather than continually looking for the next big WOW.

    It’s a good life!

    I love the new Make-It Mondays challenge!! I’m always looking for ideas to jump start my mojo and what could be better than a PTI weekly challenge?! PTI has the most talented followers, and I know it will be like flipping through the pages of a magazine when I check out everyone’s submissions. Now Mondays aren’t such a drag! 🙂 Thanks PTI!!!

    Samples were great – as usual. I really liked that I had the choice of making a project within the guidelines or just entering. I was on a marathon cleaning spree and haven’t made anything …yet.

  • 101
    Dawn says:

    I love the Make It Monday series – I plan on participating as often as possible as it will help me to try new things. Not that you asked, but my least favorite part of the anniversary festivities is that you need the sneak peeks first – pure torture to have to wait five days to see projects made with them!

  • 102
    eva says:

    the past few days have been pretty exciting! i loved all the challenges and also enjoyed seeing everyone else’s projects too. can’t wait to see the stamp reveals!

    Avril Tanner says:

    While I think the buttons set and dies, and doily stuff are really cool I am really looking foward to the Radio series coming up throughout the year! Such a cool idea! I have been listening to other scrapbook related podcasts and am totally looking foward to downloading these in the future! They are perfect for listing to when traveling, waiting or cleaning the housse! Thanks so much!

  • 104

  • 117
    Martha D. says:

    I have to pick one! I’m not sure I can do that. I can narrow it down to the button dies, Delightful doily and the Make it Monday videos. I seemto say it every month, but you all have really out done yourselves this month. Everything is just stunning!

  • 118
    Denise O says:

    All of the Inspiration! I love that you are going to have the Make It Mondays challenges and seeing all the goodies. So much fun!

  • 120
    Debbie Ward says:

    I loved…the fact that you have continued to evolve and create a freshness about your company & product that not too many have been able to do. I look forward to the beginning of every month to see the newest products you bring to us…this month was way beyond my expectations. Make-It-Mondays, to PTI Radio, to the amazing doily dies & stamps (and not to forget the most thoughtful part…the punch out for the tiny doily pieces…Only PTI could have come up with that-Way Clever!) Keep doing whatever it is you are doing…I look forward to another year with PTI!

  • 121
    Lori Weinberg says:

    I love the extended reveal. I just can’t wait to start making button cards!!!

  • 124
    Kathleen says:

    I love seeing the new products, but you do that every month–I liked the challenges, too, but I didn’t have a chance to do all of them—I thought the “best of last year” was a great idea, too! SOOOOO many great prizes this month! HOW TO CHOOSE????

  • 125
    Ivette Melzer says:

    Definitely all the chances to win! I liked how you had other some other ways to win, like the candy jar and the doily search. You are so generous and good to us, your customers!

  • 130
    Maria Harrig says:

    All the new fresh ideas and stamp sets. I look forward to seeing every set you create but I would be lost without all the ideas the design team come up with. Papertrey is by far my go to place.

  • 131

    LOVED everything… I have to say that all the new products are just fabulous. A lot of times I am drawn to a few sets out of the total 9 or 10, but this month everything is just great! I make all my cards for OWH and the stamps and dies being released this month seem like they would be perfect for that. I also have to say that I rushed home from school today to watch the MIM video- LOVED IT. I can’t wait to use these techniques that we learn. While its nice to see the card on your blog, watching you make the card is soooooooooo much better!!!!! I kinda feel like I am in your living room, stamping next to you!

    I Just wanted to say that I am sure this release has been super hectic, but THANK YOU Nichole for everything you have done. You are a true inspiration to me.

    Happy Anniversary Papertrey, here’s to many more years of papercrafting goodness!

    My favorite aspect of this anniversary was the introduction of the new PTI customer rewards program. It’s amazing to see how dedicated Papertrey is to their customer base.

  • 133
    Laura S says:

    I always love seeing all the new product. But hands down I am so looking forward to “Make it Mondays”. Cheers to another great year at Papertrey.

    My favorite aspect of the anniversary festivities has got to be the introduction of Make it Mondays! I adore videos and seeing how something is made from start to finish. Thanks for hosting such a fantastic anniversary party! Of course, all the chances at amazing prizes was a close second. 🙂

    Mel Horn says:

    It was fun guessing how many hearts were in the jar, though I’m sure I was wrong. The doily hunt was really fun too!!

  • 137

    The challenges are the best! I am so happy about the make it monday. All the new products are incredible this month and the giveaways have been insanly awesome! Wait, that’s way more than one favorite thing, haha Well, I love it all!

    Kathy says:

    All the challenges – YEAH!!! I’m hoping to be able to participate in this area more!

  • 139
    Kimberli Sarsfield says:

    My favorite aspect was the implement of the Make it Monday series! I am a huge fan of tutorials and am so inspired when I watch someone showcase a new technique or skill. The 2nd greatest thing: all of the chances at prizes and just the fact for one small second, all of us could dream about stamping side by side with Nichole Heady in her craft room!

    There was nothing that I didn’t like about this anniversary’s festivities…but if I had to pick one, it would be the introduction of “Make it Mondays”.

  • 141

    I LOVED all of the fun challenges that you had and the “Make It Monday” Series! Of course, seeing all of the gorgeous projects by your design team was just the icing on the cake! Awesome release!!!

  • 142
    Mindy says:

    I loved the challenge with the color combos & printable tags. I hadn’t participated in a challenge in a long while and coming up with cards to do in different color schemes was really fun. I’d love to do that again! So many amazing things this release!

  • 143
    Amy G. says:

    I really love the challenges. They inspire me to get busy at my craft desk, and it’s so inspiring to see what everyone else does with the same challenge. My favorite challenge this year was the one with the tags designed by the design team.

  • 144

    Its hard to narrow it down to just one thing.. so many ways to interact..design team favourites and group posts..new challenges.. additional options to enter giveaways(linking projects etc) you gals have out done your self.. Everything is fresh and cutting edge, on or ahead of the industry.. you are going above and beyond..it can only get better from here!

    My favorite things were Make it Mondays and the Podcast. And of course the awesome prizes for the contests. I can’t wait until next year. My I will finally WIN!

  • 147

    My favorite aspect of this release, as it is with any release, is the anticipation of seeing the DT artwork each day using the new stamp sets and dies. I love visualizing what each entire set looks like and then, when they are revealed, comparing my ideas with the actual product! Of course, my imaginings are never anywhere near as dazzling as the real thing!!

  • 148
    Sue D says:

    I liked all the chances to win in different ways. I wish I could have participated in the challenges but the time period was too short for me. My favorite was the doily hunt. This was a great release–I liked it all.

    I love everything about PTI releases. The inspiration from all the designers using the new products is such a treat each month and a great jump start for creatively using these products. I also love the Make It Mondays video series. Really what is not to love about all the festivities – it is truly hard to pick a favorite aspect of this month’s festivities.

  • 151
    Katie Gehring says:

    I always enjoy release festivities with PTI, but this month, I appreciated the efforts that the team made to engage and inspire us to use our PTI goodies. Thanks for a fabulous anniversary!

    I have been following Melissa Phillips blog for a few months and just loved all of her new products she was playing with.

  • 159
    Suzie says:

    There are SO many things I’ve loved about this celebration! My top is the Make It Mondays. These are such wonderful inspiration to help me, whether I’m in a creative slump or not. They challange me to use stamps (or ?) that I may not have used for a while, or at all, for lack of ideas. It’s just the motivation I need! 🙂

  • 160
    Jenn Copeland says:

    I have just started getting into scrapping and my mom, Kristii, has helped so much. She introduced me into PTI and it looks like I started at the perfect time! I have loved the challenges and new items that have been introduced! You all at PTI have made it very easy to get my “creative juices flowing.” Thanks for the inspiration and I can not wait to start scrapping more!

    Carla Grace says:

    All of the projects featured were absolutely amazing but two things really went way over my head this month….the products and possibilities are just out of this world. Now we have more dies to chose from, more tools to choose from and endless, endless outlets to create from!! And my second love this month was the generosity of your company…the giveaways were fabulous. And even tho I didn’t win anything, the thought of the lucky ladies winning such awesome prizes made me smile!! I truly felt like part of the celebration!

  • 173
    Linda Edwards says:

    All of the new goodies, along with the projects and design ideas from the team: Wow! You’ve celebrated #4 in a big way and I’ve been along for the ride every day. I was so excited to see the spring edition of the Friendship Jar Fillers. These sets are at the top of my fave list. The buttons, the doilies… a wonderful trip back to my childhood. My Mom made all my clothes when I was a little girl, and I want to make a card to honor her and all the sacrifices she made for me.

  • 174
    Amber R. says:

    I would love to say this is a tough question because let’s face it, everything has been great! However, I am in love with Make It Mondays!

  • 179
    Marla J says:

    There was so much to love, but I think my favorite thing may have been the Make It Mondays. I have been inspired by Erin Lincoln for a while now, and it is great to see one of her simple chic cards featured every week. I am also loving all the doily goodness that’s been on the blog. Can’t wait to get my hands on some of those dies!

Will be busy Monday evenings.

  • 222
    Dina M says:

    I like how PTI is trying to find new ways to reward its customers-the new rewards program is great. PTI doesn’t have to offer anything, yet they are taking into consideration *all* purchases, not just stamps and giving their customers a better chance to earn points for whatever we want!!! Way to go PTI!!

  • 228
    Tania S. says:

    I’d have to say my favorite part of the festivities was seeing all the new products and how the PTI designers used them, sometimes it’s so hard to look at stamps and think how we could use them in our own projects, but when we see them used in such creative ways on each of the designers blogs I smack my forehead and say “oh my gosh, I can do that”. Thanks so much PTI … and thanks for the great chance to win such awesome prizes.

    I know this is going to sound horrible, but my favorite aspect was the AMAZING, TOTALLY over-the-top prizes and all the great giveaways. You know how to celebrate in style Nichole! I wish I could have joined in the excitement and participated in the fun challenges as well, but I am recovering from spinal fusion surgery, no card making for me for the time being. I look forward to placing a BIG order when I am able to craft again though, my wish list keeps growing and growing. Happy 4th Anniversary PTI!!

I think your teaching, especially with that gorgeous card this morning, will really improve my beginner CAS style. If only I could ever make cards as fabulous as yours…

    I also really loved the new projects and stamp sets! Can’t wait to get those little button dies home and start making my own. I also love the new patterned blocks to decorate them! Thanks for all the hard work you do! It really means a lot to sooooooo many of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My favorite part was the introduction of the Make It Monday challenges.

    Jennie C says:

    I still keep thinking about the anniversary tag download that was way back at the beginning of the celebration. That was such a fun challenge and really stretched me into new areas! It didn’t even occur to me to consider these as digital stamps, but saw a comment about that and love the concept. The best part? Those tags spoke “doilies” to me big and loud and I used some store bought doilies in most of the cards I made. Then the actual release was soooo rich with dream-come-true-doilies!!! Ah, bliss.

    Loved the debut of Papertrey Radio along with make it Monday. Then the hunting for the doilies made me really look close to the design team’s examples. I really look at them fairly close but hunting the doily made me look even harder. The examples where just wonderful this month but then again so is all of February’s release!!

I’ve loved the Papertrey Radio podcast, youtube vids, Make it Monday series, and, of course…all of the sneak peeks and creative inspiration from the DT! The past two weeks have just flown by!!!

    After the first day of celebrating your 4th year, virtually every day brought new anticipation for the next great surprise! I’ve been with you all four years and this, without a doubt, has been the absolute most inspiring and exciting release I’ve seen! Just when I think, “what could they possibly come up with next”, you bring it on like never before! For that I salute you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    Robin says:

    I completely forgot about this last giveaway on your blog tonight! So glad I came back to get one final look at the list of the new products. This month has just fabulous, although I am REALLY TIRED from staying up past midnight every night!!! haha. I had to see the new projects and announcements every day! I would have to say that my favorite thing so far has been the amazing new stamps and dies as well as the MIM. Those videos are fabulous. For me, seeing the video helps bring the project alive. So many times it is hard for me to tell just with the picture and small description how something was done, but seeing it in a video is perfect. I really LOVED it. THANK YOU NICHOLE FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK!!!! It has really payed off and the company is doing AMAZING things. PTI would not be the PTI it is today without you!

    Make it mondays and Pti radio that i will get to listen to as i get to work if just the right amount of traffic lets me.

    If I must chose one favorite thing this year, the challenges with the fabulous prizes top the list.

  • 401
    Cathy Weber says:

    My favorite aspect of the Anniversary this year was the day and night I daydreamed about going to Nichole’s house to make cards. Who would I bring, what I would say, what I would wear, etc. It was definitely a love/hate kind of thing. This anniversary really was a wonderful two weeks.

  • 402

  • 404
    Jessica C. says:

    It’s hard to choose a favorite — and I’m not sure this falls into the category of anniversary festivities anyway — but I do like the Make it Mondays. It’s fun to see ideas and techniques and then have the chance to do my own interpretation. And of course it’s always nice to win stamp sets. Also, I loved the contest where you could design your own stamp set! That is a dream come true for a lot of us, I’m sure.

  • 405

    Sandy Ramirez says:

    I don’t know if it’s and “aspect” or not, but I just LOVE the new COLOR SWATCH FLIP BOOK BINDER!! Woo hoo! And my second favorite thing, which is “probably and aspect” is the revamped Make It Mondays! Loved this weeks project…….woohoo!!

  • 418

    Happy 4th Anniversary, Nichole and everyone at PTI!!! I have to say that my favorite aspect of this anniversary celebration was all of the challenges. This was my very first anniversary with your company and it didn’t disappoint. I may not have “won” any of the contests, but I sure did stretch myself to make each of my entries something unique. Thanks for all that you do for your customers. Oh…..another favorite…..learning about the new rewards system. I just LOVE it!!!

  • 419

All of your artists are amazing and to see their work in action, while learning a new technique, is so awesome!! Thanks for the fun celebration and the chance to win.

  • 424
    AnneSATX says:

    I loved all the incredible giveaways and, although I haven’t won anything yet, the feeling of hope each time I open the winners’ page to see who won each fabulous prize. However, my absolute favorite part is, as always, seeing the amazing variety of creations that you and the design team come up with using the exact same stamps or dies (or whatever product you are focusing on at the time). As I look at each designer’s projects, I am just blown away at the versatility of PTI products — and enjoy seeing everything from Jessica’s and Maile’s deceptively simple CAS cards to Betsy’s and Melissa’s over-the-top shabby chic creations. I love the 10th to the 14th of each month!

  • 425
    Angela says:

    Coasters and buttons and doilies, oh my! My favorite part of this year’s anniversary celebration was seeing all of the ways that PTI will integrate their products into our crafting lives – video, radio, rewards, innovation. Combined with it’s announcement to focus on the basics of business, I believe PTI has positioned themselves to be a sole source of supplies for most of their customers. Happy 4th Anniversary and congratulations to all of you that worked so hard to make your customers so happy. I’m so excited about the coming year and so thrilled to see this company do so well.

I appreciate all the hard work you and your team put into this to make it so special and to give everyone from beginners to the experienced a chance to explore and create at our own level.

    Gosh, where to start? I really love Papertrey Radio, seriously, how cool is that?

    The whole celebration ROCKED!!!

I’ve been going over the last few days my wish list on what I can buy or not buy and then it goes to another list to buy in the future. A person needs an extra job just for the releases. Oh I absolutely love the book with all the papers in also that will come in so handy I can’t wait.

    This is my first time I got to experience PTI’s anniversary, and let me tell you I had so much fun! It’s so hard to choose one particular thing. The challenges were so entertaining and inspiring, and I loved the little videos here and there. I guess I would have to say my favorite aspect was the projects from the design team. They were all AMAZING! Every night I waited up to see what new creations they had to share with all of us. Thank you for such a fun time!

    My fave aspect was finding out about all the new things you would be doing this year. I love that you have decided to move forward with some of the plans you had that were hinging on a new site…but instead found a way to make them work with what you currently have. It is also so much fun to see the new interaction with showcasing how your customers are using your products. So glad I found Papertrey Ink and am looking forward to the coming year, thank you!! Woooohooo!!!!

    Trish says:

    The Monday Video Series. I am always inspired visually by your blog and the design teams blogs. Now, I get to see ideas and techniques come to life, in video format. I also love how you build onto sets that have been released in the past, allowing me to maybe just make one or two new purchases. My finances thank you for that. Happy 4TH Anniversary.

    Aside from the always-awesome products, it was great to “see” the excitement of all the PTI Team members — in their blogs and in the forums. It’s so cool that you all are just as excited about everything as we all are.

  • 509

    The Doily Hunt was super fun and I loved seeing all the designs from the design team.

  • 513
    Kimberly Ann says:

    Why is it that we have to give a “favorite”? I think a question asking for “favoriteS” would be easier to answer. Let us LIST our favorite aspectS, instead of having to think of that one thing that stands out. Because, frankly MANY things stand out for me, and having to narrow it down to one in an hour is like trying to pick a favorite book. It really can’t be done! So, on that note may I give you a list (in no particular order) of favorite anniversary event/aspect?
    1. Papertrey’s new products
    2. The completed projects/samples
    3. The “atmosphere” of a party (and online too!)
    4. The contests.

    I think I will stop there. Thanks for the great party – I’ve had fun 🙂

  • 514
    Carol J. says:

    The Make It Monday videos were my favorite. The best part is that they will continue even after tonight’s celebration ends. It’s been a great ride. Looking forward to the coming yr. Happy Birthday PTI. May you have many more years!

  • 515

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the seeing all the amazing samples created by the designers and the rest of the fabulous papertrey team! Its so exciting to see all the fabulous ideas they come up with for EVERY new product and even when they return to an old fave.. They are really amazing you have assembled a real cracker jack team!

  • 516

    The whole week was special, I loved seeing all the things the DT showed us and what we will be able to do with all these new releases. I especially look forward to the Mondays video and thoroughly enjoyed the design challenges, it made me look at my own work in a better light. Thanks for a great Anniversary.

  • 517
    Terri Moore says:

  • 518

  • 519
    leish says:

    I can’t even begin to explain how awesome the anniversary celebration was! I’m currently on house arrest/bed rest for a high risk pregnancy. I’ve been sorely missing my students, classroom, and colleagues. Seeing the challenges and the projects and all the fantastic cards from everyone was definitely a bright spot in an otherwise boring, almost depressing day(s)! It inspired me to craft more frequently! =) Thank you!

  • 520
    Cheri Mosgrove says:

    It’s a bit hard to nail down a favorite from the last few days.. . the talent among all the designers is just crazy! So very inspiring! Each new stamp set and product is so fabulous!

Already looking forward to papertrey ink fifth anniversary celebrations.

  • 524
    Jacque D. says:

    I love how you can keep us on the edge of our seats waiting…ie: the new stamp designers (what they are going to come up with), the new design team (all the inspiration they are going to give us), new stamps and new stamp series (to help us build on what we already have), dies, paper, all the sneek peeks, just everything. I can’t wait for the 15th to come around every month and the Anniversary month to come. It is like Christmas, just every month!

  • 525
    Ginny A. says:

    I loved that this year there was a little bit of everything for the anniversary festivities. The introductions of Make it Monday and Papertrey Radio, plus the opportunity to get inky most days with our own creations, talk about a great way to be inspired!! Then you let us catch our breath with some fun games was a wonderful way to end the week. Thank you, thank you for a wonderful 4th anniversary celebration, it has been a really fun ride!!

  • 526
    Cheryl SD says:

    Do I have to pick just one favorite??? Let’s see, a first podcast that was great…Make it Monday videos that have been wonderful…fabulous ideas with fantastic new products day after day…but I guess my favorite aspect of the celebration is all the contests and ways to win prizes!!!

  • 537

    I was (and am) in awe of the fabulous prizes for this year’s anniversary! The timing was bad for me to be able to create for each challenge, so I was thankful that I got a chance to win just by leaving a comment. I always love the samples from the design team, and I think they went “outside the box” to think of alternative ways to use the stamps and dies. This is my first time during an anniversary release, so it was really wonderful to see the extra effort. It raises the bar for other stamping companies!

    Thanks PTI Team!

  • 538

    In addition to continuing superior, creative ideas, I truly feel the best part of your anniversary is celebrating the success of your creative endeavors. What a great thing to see the success of your hard work. What a great thing to share with the public your fabulously creative, inspiring ideas. While I’m not a youngin’, I have loved paper crafting my whole life. While I did not have all these wonderful tools years ago, I have fortunately found in Papertrey Ink all the wonderful elements I wish I’d had when I began playing with paper. You inspire each and every month. I wish you continued success!

    My favorite activity during releases, especially during your anniversary celebration, is getting up every morning, sitting in front of my montitor with coffee in hand and viewing all the lovely projects from the PTI team and introduction of each new product.

    Judy says:

    I loved your Monday videos. I liked that they were fairly simple, making it easy substitute the products that I currently have. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in buying more that we forget to look at what we have as well. I love the button dies and stamps. I get inspired to be creative from everyone else’s ideas.

    I would have to say PTI radio and make it Mondays. The radio gave a really great perspective on various subjects. It was just a lot of fun to listen to. And the make it Mondays will be lots of fun to tune into and try a new tecnique or get reacquainted with an old one.

I hope to participate in the make it mondays challenge soon. I also thoroughly enjoyed the daily posts for 10 days. I would wake up in the morning, brew a cup of coffee & race to the computer for my PTI fix. I don’t know what I am going to do tomorrow morning now that all this fun is almost over. Congratulations on 4 wonderful years. It has been fun watching you grow, and I hope you have many more years of continued success.
