Papertrey Radio & an extra special giveaway!

Welcome back for day four of Papertrey's 4th Anniversary festivities! We have had such a huge response from everyone and we are just thrilled that you all want to be a part of this!

Today's announcement is another fun one.  

Totally, completely, head-over-heels fun!

You may remember the original announcement we made for a new podcast series during last year's anniversary festivities HERE.  Unfortunately, just like the Make It Monday Video series, this too hinged on the arrival of the new website.


We are so thrilled with the prospect of this interaction with our customers, we have decided to move forward with our plans and rather than host it on the website, it is something that will take place here, on my blog.  

Papertrey Radio will be a series of podcasts, a new one made available every other week.  These podcasts will include interviews, customer questions, design team answers and all sorts of fun little tidbits!

The podcasts can be listened to directly here, or you can download the mp3 files and upload them to your iPod or mp3 player to listen to later.  We will eventually also have the files available directly through iTunes.

Erin Lincoln has practically single-handedly researched, prepared and organized everything regarding the Papertrey Radio podcast series.  Not  to mention she's also the official host.  I got to listen to the very first episode myself yesterday and I just couldn't help but smile from ear to ear.  Just under 30 minutes in length, it is the perfect thing to download and listen to while you're in the car, working out, doing dishes, etc.  

You will DEFINITELY want to listen in on this first episode as soon as possible because I make a very special announcement at the end of the podcast about the prize we are giving away today!  Just sayin'!!!!!

I present to you the very first episode of Papertrey Radio!

I know as soon as you hear the fun that takes place in this, you will be counting down the days until the next episode, like me! Erin did such a wonderful job keeping everything casual and upbeat, just like sitting down to have coffee with your favorite stamping friends!

It's super easy today, folks!  Visit the database HERE, that I mentioned in the podcast, and enter your name, home address & email address to enter.

If you want to know all the details of the extra special prize we are giving away today, you'll have to listen to the podcast!  Let's just say that you & a friend could possibly be hopping on a jet plane soon to do some super fun stamping!


  • You must enter your name, home address & email address into our database HERE.
  • Unfortunately, this contest is only open to customers living in the continental U.S.
  • You and your friend must travel on the same flight together, in other words not from two different locations.
  • Only one entry per person will be permitted with this database.
  • You have until 7am EST, Wednesday, February 9th to enter your information into the database and have a chance to WIN!
  • One randomly selected winner will be announced no later than noon EST the same day on our February 2011 Release Winners page.


We would LOVE to hear any suggestions or requests regarding what kinds of topics or interviews you would like to see in upcoming Papertrey Radio podcasts.  Please be sure to leave a comment below so we can start assembling our list!

Thank you for stopping by today and good luck to everyone on the contest!  And we hope to see you back on day five of this fabulous 4th Anniversary celebration!  You won't want to miss out on what we have to share tomorrow!

    YAY! That sounds like so much fun! I think I would have more fun eating your southern style cooking than anything. 🙂 It was also very fun to hear Erin interviewing. Great job, ladies!!!

    Eegads! What an AWESOME prize…I would LOVE to stamp with Nichole…who wouldn’t!?!? It was so fun to hear the podcast tonight…to hear my fellow PTI Paper Doll, to hear the various members of the DT, etc. I would love to hear the designers (especially the young mothers!) explain how they manage to make the time for all of the lovely things they create! And hey, just for kicks…let’s hear some ‘most embarrassing stamping moments’ stories!

    I would love to hear an interview with Melissa Phillips on some of her shabby vintage wonderful style techniques and maybe how she tea dyes paper and ribbon. Also would love to hear Michelle Wooderson discuss the process of choosing the colors and elements so unique to her style. I enjoyed their collaboration on “The 12 days of Christmas” SO much this year and find myself going back to those blog entries over and over again for other holidays and design elements. It would be fun to hear them both tell us about the “behind the scene” experience of putting something like that together. Your team is SO VERY talented it would be great to hear from any of these ladies about their own styles and techniques. Background stamping is always a challenge for me for example. Also lastly would love to know the ins and outs of seam binding and dying it.

    Susan T says:

    My mind has gone blank because all I keep thinking is OMG!!! This would be the best prize ever!!! I would like to know when you design stamp sets how the mind works on deciding what you include in the set…for example what pieces are broken down into smaller parts. Sometimes I look at a set and I think to myself…What were they thinking when they designed this set? Does it develop while you are in the design process or do you have a really good idea before you begin the process. Thanks for asking and for the Dream of a LIfetime!!! 🙂

    Well done, Erin. You were upbeat, kept the podcast moving and helped put your guests at ease. Looking forward to more of these.

    Everyday is getting better and better! I’ve been reading all the designer’s blog but hearing some of their voices is great! Looking forward to more.

    Victoria Nelson says:

    Congrats, PTI! I enjoyed the first episode of PTI Radio immensely! For a future issue, I would love to hear about the process for creating a stamp set. From idea conception through the big reveal on release night, what is the process like? Thanks for asking your customers for feedback!

    Judy F. says:

    Great job, PTI! I really enjoyed your first episode. I don’t have any crafting friends, so it’s great to listen to the format of your podcast…I can sit and sip wine while you interview and share ideas. One thing I’d like to know is….how do you keep and organize all of the inspiration and card ideas that come to you. I feel absolutely overwhelmed at times as the ideas just flow and flow. Do you have suggestions on how to cap these design surges & remember all of your best ideas? Looking forward to your next podcast…thanks so much!

    Keva Brown says:

    Great Podcast! That was so cool! Erin did a great job. I would love to go to Nichole’s for stamping time and since I live right outside Nashville, I’m a cheap date! LOL

    Aparna says:

    This was a great podcast–it was great listening to the design team and everyone answer questions 🙂 I especially liked the candid nature of the conversation. A future topic I would love to hear about is how the different pieces of a stamp set come to be–while I love the inspiration cards that are created, I would love to know the original intent of the stamp designer 🙂 Aparna

    Renee Lynch says:

    LOVED the podcast!
    It was so great to sit here and listen while I’m…
    making a card.
    Maile’s suggestions…
    THANK YOU! 🙂
    And Erin…you did an incredible job…can’t wait for more!
    How about covering the basics?
    I’m newer to PTI than most…
    have only been stamping for about a year…
    so my stash is not as large as most…
    and with 4 kiddies…
    I have to budget.
    I want it all…but realistically I can’t have it all.
    Not all at once anyway.
    Now…before there’s any confusion…
    I truly believe I’m getting a superior product with PTI…
    and an INCREDIBLE value…
    so that’s not the issue.
    But the basics in where to start.
    What colors, maybe 3-4, not including white, would you recommend that would fit any person, any occasion?
    The basic accents?
    And 3-5 to five sets that you feel are the ones to begin with?
    That way when we see stunning cards and we don’t have every set being used…sometimes none…we can still use the inspiration being given, within those “basic” sets?
    I hope that makes sense…
    Congratulations on the Anniversary…
    loving all the festivities!
    And I would love to win this next incredible prize too…
    a day to see how you make it look so incredibly simple…?
    Someone is going to get an incredible treat!

    Laurie Hunt says:

    This might be boring but I would love to know what all goes into making a stamp set. Time involved steps. I am an engineer by trade so I have this curiosity as to how things work. Not in technical terms though, I like just plain old two people talking kind of terms.

  • 19
    Patty O says:

    I’d like to see more stamping incorporated into scrapbooking layouts. Most of the projects center around cards, which is obvious because of the scale of the stamps. However, I want to use my stamps and dies primarily for scrapbook layouts. I would like to hear more about the thought process for doing that. Thanks!

    Thanks for the podcast – loved it! Can’t wait to download the next one and listen to it whilst in the gym – anything to keep the mind off the tediousness of a treadmill!!! So sad that I am not able to take part in today’s contest as I live in Europe… but I wish the lucky winner a whole lot of fun on her stamping trip!!! I would love to know more about the process that goes into designing a stamp set.

  • 23
    mauie says:

    Woohoo!!! Would so want to win the prize mentioned in the podcast. I’m such a Nichole fan. Too bad though I live in the Philippines. Hehe
    Anyways, congratulations for your first (of the many) podcast. I’m looking forward to more of those. And happy 4th anniversary! ^_^

    bibiana martinez says:

    I liked it very much, maybe for future episodes a little bit shorter?..i would like to hear about anecdotes from conventions, shows, what it is going on with the new releases…choosing colors for making the cards, tips and techniques…and interviewing people etc…i look forward to the monday videos…thank you for all your innovative ideas

    This was fabulous. I loved hearing the voices, I know that is so dorky! This prize was FABULOUS!!!! I didn’t see where the stamps for a year contest was though, maybe I am not looking in the right place. I would love to know what the total number of entries for this contest ends up being. I would also LOVE to know the total entry for the year of free stamps as well. That is just me being curious though.

    It’s a great life!

    Happy Anniversary PTI. How wonderfully informative this podcast was. I really enjoyed enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you Erin.
    Maile’s tips were very helpful. Appreciate that.
    I have a question for Betsy and all the designers really. Would love to know how each designer starts. It is color,paper or stamp?
    I almost have the card in mind. Birthday, get well,etc but often struggle with the image or paper first. I adore Betsy’s use of color and the pop she gives to her stamped images with it.
    Also I too would love to know what sets the designers use most often. Their basic favs.
    Thank you Papertrey Ink for another wonderful year of inspiration. Although you guys are bad for my budget( giggle) you help to feed a need to stamp/create.
    I would love, love, screaming up and down love to come Visit Nicole and stamp with her. Whom ever wins she will be blessed by this trip and it will be a treasure to her heart. congrats to the lucky winner!

  • 34

    Indeed Freckleface and Eleftheria have said it for me….yet again those in the U.K. Europe and Australia are barred from participating. We love PTI very much and are totally frustrated at the shipping charges. Perhaps PTI radio could address our frustration sometime. In the meantime we are certainly enjoying the fun and send Congratulations to all the team. Keep up the good work.

    Oh, what a wonderful prize! I so hate being an International now! The winner will be the luckiest girl!
    I enjoyed listening to the podcast very much! It is creating a nostalgic atmosphere – working in the kitchen while listening to it. I almost wanted to put on some high-heels and a petticoat! I’d love to hear from Melissa Phillips. She seems to be one of the friendliest, most thoughtful crafters out there and I’d love to get to know her better.

    Dee in N.H. says:

    OMG! The podcast is super duper awesome! I will be listening to every second of it on my computer since I don’t have whatever device it is that receives it. Yes, I’m still in the dark ages! LOL! I can’t wait to hear more. One thing that I liked was the talk of mistakes, nice to know we are all human.
    I can’t even imagine how excited I would be to call my mom and tell her that we could go stamp with Nichole for a day! That would be just the ultimate stamping day for us. She introduced me to this obsession so it would only be her that I would want to bring with me. Thanks ladies!!!!!!

    Shawn Wenrich says:

    I love the podcast! Please keep doing them and it would be great if you are able to get them posted to iTunes. I’m really excited about technique videos as well. I’d of course like to hear interviews with all of the design team members, also I’m always interested in what’s going on in the industry. I can’t wait to hear an announcement that Papertrey’s new inks are going to be released! Thank you Erin for taking on this huge task, we truly appreciate it:)

    ValerieC says:

    Wow PTI is going all out this anniversary. Truly it is amazing that Nichole is going to open her wonderful new home up to have someone be a guest for the day. I really can’t imagine any other company doing something as personal as that. Thank you for the oppurtunity to win and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PTI!!!!!

  • 43
    Amy Gutknecht says:

    My first thought was OMG I can’t wait to hear their voices! I read all your blogs every day & it’s like having a pen pal when you were a kid – you always wonder what they sound like!

    That aside, I would love to get a lesson in coloring with Copics… or what the PTI creative process is – how much direction is given to the designers? And how do you decide which stamps get released at what time?… or how you find the latest trends.

    I applaud your step into the social network and podcasting – that is a very daring but necessary step these days!

    Thanks for all you do – the inspiration you provide is priceless.

    Jessica says:

    I am just smitten with everything that has been introduced this week. I have not stopped daydreaming about winning all these amazing prizes. I have even imagined myself having that awkward conversation with Nicole to tell her that I am sure her southern homecooked meal is amazing, but I am an annoying vegetarian and even though I admire you to pieces, I will not eat your meat. I just can’t handle all this amazingness. As for the podcast, since I just put myself on a budget to save money for buying a house, it has been a struggle to budget my crafting need/hobby/addiction. I would love to hear about other crafter’s budgets and how they choose what they buy. Because to me, having a stock of all my adhesives in my craft room, is more important than having bread and milk in the house. I also think it would be fun to hear about what everyone does with all the cards and projects they make. Are people selling their items, giving them away, hoarding them, or whatever? And the winner of the stamps for a year had me thinking about how awesome it would be to have a stamp swap. That might certainly solve my budgeting issues. Oh boy I am rambling now, maybe I should just call in!

    Chris Cross says:

    What a great giveaway!! How much fun would that be and the pictures our your new house are gorgeous. It would be a thrill to see it in person.

    Angy says:

    Love to have an interview with Melissa Phillips and her vintage shabby chic style. I would also love to hear from Betsy Veldman and how she puts together colors, patterns etc. But really just hearing everyone’s voice is amazing! Gives me a better picture of the person. This is a fun addition.

    Happy Anniversary! I loved listening to the podcast. How fun! What a great prize, too. I don’t have any ideas for topics at the moment. Thanks for making PTI such a wonderful happy place.

  • 51
    Cindy O says:

    Love the new podcast. I have a few questions I would love to hear answered:
    1. Have you ever thought about publishing a catalo?. I would love to purchase one to have as a handy reference. You could then have yearly supplements to update it with the new sets.
    2. Is there a trick to getting the card stock out of the dyes? I often get very frustrated with this process. Loved the limitless layer die that had small holes in the scallops … that made it easy peasy to remove the card stock. Could you possibly put a small hole in all your dyes?

    Hope you answer these. I’ll be listening.

  • 52

    That was awesome!!! I loved all the interviews. I think Ted needs to be up next to get the male perspective.

    And boy oh boy… at stamping trip to Nichole’s!! Are you kidding me? Sersously, my bags are packed!

  • 53
    DiAnn says:

    Thanks for the chance to come and stamp with you. That would be a blast!As far as what I would like to see? I’m not sure, I enjoy all the designers so much. We all have our styles, but I like to try and do different things so I don’t get in a rut and learn new ways to challenge myself. What great fun. I am really looking forward to Mondays. Thanks again for all the chances to win and fun you have given us.

    Robbie says:

    Woo-hoo!! What prizes going on here. I am soooo a PTI fan. I had only seen a couple of your stamp sets when I went to my first CHA in Orlando. But when I left your booth the first time (I probably went 30 times, no not really, but a lot) I was totally sold out on PTI. It has now become my favorite company and I “push” PTI every chance I get. Love the die cuts to go with the stamps. Ya’ll are just getting too good and having too much fun!!

    And to have a chance to receive stamps each month AND a chance to visit Nicole would be the bestest dream come true!! Love ya’ll…

  • 58

    The podcast was wonderful! I really enjoyed listening to it this morning while working on my challenge for Make it Monday. 🙂 I am looking forward to future episodes. I would love to hear from different DT members about what their favorite technique or style element is to add to a card or project!

    Luanne tenHarmsel says:

    I can’t tell you how perfect this getaway prize would be. I know just who I would bring with me – a special stamping friend who I would love to thank for helping me through a difficult time. The podcast was great – I would like to hear an interview with Melissa Phillips. She has such a sweet spirit. Thanks for this opportunity!

    Christina M says:

    I have to admit, when I first heard about Papertrey Radio I wasn’t sure it was for me. But I am so glad I took the time to listen! I don’t have any stamping friends to chat with, and I’m sure my hubby gets a little bored with it, so it was a lot of fun to listen in on the discussion. I love the casual feel of the show, and I’d love to hear more interviews with PTI designers about their start-to-finish creative process. Looking forward to more episodes!

  • 64
    Kathy H says:

    Awesome podcast, Erin-you are the perfect hostess! Thanks for answering my question Maile-especially loved the idea of cutting out the image! Nichole, I can’t believe you’re offering such an amazing prize. Truly the best part is the gift of your time sharing your stamping talents and secrets, not to mention hosting dinner!! I’d love, love, love to win:)

    Holly says:

    Hmmmm….. rather useless for me as I am deaf. Oh well…

  • 66
    Kathy H says:

    Oh forgot to add what subjects I would like to hear on the podcast. 1.) How do the designers come up with card ideas? Do they look through magazines, other publications or do ideas just swirl through your heads all the time? 2.)Do you show your creations to your family and friends for feedback before posting them? 3.) Do you set aside specific time for creating or just seize the moment when you can? 4.) Patterned paper is a huge obstacle for me-how do you decide what to use and how much to use?

    Diane Jaquay says:

    What a marvelous prize!!! I’m so happy that PTI is involving us, the customers, in such a BIG way, in these Anniversary celebrations and new programs. It means a lot to me personally, and I’m sure many of your customers are feeling the same way. Well done PTI 🙂

    Susie says:

    What an exciting prize !! I had no trouble entering in the database and I put the podcast on my iPhone when I got up and just listened to it… I just love this! Being able to listen to it anytime I want makes it so convenient! I can’t think of any ways to make it better…. you ladies are so brilliant and on top of things and seems to know what I want before I do. 🙂

    Papertrey Radio– What an original idea! And so well done– Erin is a nice, comfortable interviewer who asks good questions. I’d love to hear more tips and insights from the DT. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to wonderful Papertrey Ink!

  • 71
    Stampnurse says:

    Wow, the podcast was so enjoyable to hear. Nice tips and ideas. Things are very exciting. I would like to hear what the designers do while stamping/creating…loud music, no noise, drink, stand, sit, what is always out….that type of idea. Would love the year of stamp products, hubby couldn’t complain about that!

    Lindsay says:

    Happy Anniversary to my favorite company! I looooved your podcast! Loved! I felt like I was sitting there with you all and content was very useful! Great job!

    Christine Rogus says:

    WOW WOW WOW WOW!!! I can’t believe it!! I got to meet Nichole at CHA and that was a total honor and now this kind of giveaway!! I don’t know of another company that is so great to their customers. Holy Moly!! I would die to do this!! I just can’t believe it, I am awe struck sitting in my chair. I would love to see more scrapbooking with the stamps. I love to scrapbook and School Time helped me out super much when I was making my kids school scrapbooks.

  • 75
    Angela says:

    I don’t own an MP3 player, so thank you for making this available on the blog. I’m a visual person – I like reading vs. listening – so I wasn’t sure I would like this format. I have to say it was really fun to hear the spoken voice that belongs to people we read about via blog. Erin, your hosting was lively and the transitions were smooth – you did a great job.
    For future episodes, it would be nice to have a rewind or fast forward feature online, similar to a video clip, and it would also be nice to see how much time is remaining. I’m not even sure if that is possible (obviously someone that doesn’t own an ipod is technically challenged). Also, it would be great if you could feature a different designer or design team member each episode. Thanks again for this fun addition to PTI.

  • 76

    ERIN! You did an incredible job as hostess, as did all of your special guests! And the prize today…just Holy WOW! How much fun that would be! Thanks, Nichole!

    Okay, my podcast idea may be silly. I actually wasn’t going to ask, but then Erin mentioned talking about stamping with her husband at the dinner table, so I gained courage! I watched a little video on Erin’s blog of her husband discussing baby items, and it was SO FUNNY! So I would love to hear a little interview with Mr. Lincoln and his thoughts about stamping, products, etc. Sort of like a “Confessions of a Stamping Husband”…his take on this crazy little addiction!

  • 77
    Sue Symens says:

    That was cool! It is interseting to hear your voices after reading you blogs for so long. Great prize by the way. I was wondering if you had ideas for using stamps that are sometimes forgoten. We get so excited when new stamps come out and we buy them. Then the next month we do it again, and again, and again. Which is great for business but we, as stampers, seem to forget about the ones that are a month or so old. Now from time to time you do revisit a set but do you have other ideas?? Thanks so much!

    Erin is SO cute and funny! I love her wit!

    Maille’s voice is as sweet as I imagined it would be!

    Love Dawn! So glad she answered one of the questions!

    I like that PTI is progressive and I respect the desire to keep customers fully saturated in the process/product/with the designers, but I don’t understand how a radio program will enhance a hobby that is so visual. Of course I hope the segment does well and I’m glad I listened to this orginal program, but I don’t think it is something I would tune into on a regular basis.

    Hearing Erin, Nichole, Maile, Dawn, Dana, Kathy, and Leann in my craft room was like having friends visit! What a great way to start my day. I look forward to future radio visitors.

    And to PTI, for always working so hard to make all our dreams come true…I am sitting here imagining what it would be like to be in that beautiful studio and be crafting and chatting with Nichole…WOW!

    Good luck to all who are able to enter the contest. I guess I have to leave Canada and move to the US so I can get in on these types of opportunities.

    Loved, loved, LOVED the podcast! I have an hour commute each way to work & this just made my morning! If you could make the podcast a bit longer… I’d love it even more! 😉 It makes the time pass so quickly & these things are great to listen to while cleaning or crafting at home too.

    Daniela says:

    Is all of this for real? Hard to believe! 🙂 I haven’t had time to listen to the podcast yet (I have an 11-month old that has just learned how far he can get by rolling and crawling, but I’m going to download it, because it’s perfect for chores around the house or even stamping!

    Mary Campbell says:

    I LOVE the podcast. I don’t have friends who are addicted to stamping like I am so it is so nice to hear other people talking about how much they love it. I did not want it to end!! Thank you all so much for all the time you put into making such wonderful products. PTI just keeps getting better and better!

    Debstamps says:

    Congratulations and Happy Anniversary Papertrey! I just finished listening to the first podcast and I enjoyed it thoroughly! I think it’s a great idea…stampers are always interested in other stampers: their ideas, motivations, and inspirations. I think you accomplished your goal of sounding like friends chatting about one of their favorite subjects and I enjoyed listening in. I also liked the phone ringing with the questions…reminds me of old fashioned radio!

    I’m amazed at your prize offerings, and had great fun imagining how fantastic it would be to have a year of Papertrey stamps! Wow…!

    Wishing you continued success, and I look forward to staying tuned as you enjoy your next year!

    Allyson says:

    I love being able to hear the voices of the PTI team members – makes it a so much more personal experience as I go around to their blogs and read what they write and see their creations. It just adds an extra dimension in getting to know their style and personality. I agree about basics questions. I’m a fairly new beginner as well, still learning and trying to find my style, and I’ve only been purchasing PTI products for a few months, so I’m building my collection still and sometimes feel stuck because I don’t know all the tricks and techniques. Anyway. I love the Q&A! So helpful and fun. Thanks again! 😉

    What incredible fun to listen to the podcast. Erin – you did a great job at putting your guests at ease. I loved hearing Nichole talk about the card David made for her. That brought a tear to my eye. Nichole – what an extremely generous prize you are offering, opening up your lovely new home and the gift of your time. Holy moly!!! Many thanks to the entire Papertrey family for just being the best in the business.

    Jen V. says:

    Love the podcast….love it!! Great job ladies, I can’t wait to hear more. I too would like to know what all goes in to designing a stamp set…I think it would be such a cool process. It would also be neat if you did a 1:1 “interview” with some of the design team members…I feel like I “know” so many of them from reading blogs, but voice adds a whole new level to that! I’d also love to hear your thoughts on the trends in paper crafting right now…things you love and will stand the test of time, and things you think are trendy just for now.

  • 91
    Geri Freeman says:

    Enjoyed the podcast so much! Found Dawn’s info very interesting–I’ve always wondered how the planning/designing process takes place. This will be a fun new feature!

    Ginny Schleich says:

    Loved listening to the podcast this morning. It was really nice listening to everyone and putting a voice to the person. I had my coffee and listened and it was almost like I was there. Since you already share so many wonderful ideas, techniques and products here, I would like to hear from Nicole and the design team about their favorite products, how they became a DT member, the process of getting their stamps released. All the fun stuff. Happy Anniversary PTI!

  • 93
    Julie Batta says:

    This podcast was really cool. Totally loved it and Erin did a great job. I would love to hear about the process of creating a stamp set. Starting from where do the ideas come from, to designing the images, to manufacturing them. I always wonder how this process works and do you draw the images on the computer or freehand them. Or do you send your ideas off to someone and they create the final images. Keep up the great work!!!

  • 94
    Lauren says:

    What fun that would be!!!! I’d be a cheap date too…no need for airfare. I’m close enough to Nashville that I could drive. 🙂 A total dream getaway!!

    As for podcast ideas, I’d love to hear from Nichole and other DT members about how long it takes them to prepare their projects for each month’s countdown. So many of the projects are so elaborate that it would take me FOREVER to so perfectly execute such gorgeousness!! Also, I’d love to know how long it takes to bring a stamp set to market, from initial ideas and sketches to final production.

    Love the podcast! Can’t wait to hear the next one!!!!!

  • 95

    Loved the podcast! I listened while cleaning the kitchen, needless to say I got a lot of cleaning done because it was so entertaining!!

    Karen says:

    I say this every year, but every day gets better and better during the anniversary celebration. Like your designs, I’m always amazed at the creativity in new products, prizes, and ideas! Truly incredible. Loved the first podcast, and will be looking forward to them every two weeks. I’d love to hear an interview with each of the design team members and stamp designers about their creative process, favorite techniques . . . Thanks for providing so much inspiration all year long!

  • 97

    What a fun pod cast!! I’d love to hear about what happen behind the scenes. like the process from coming up with the idea to making it to the releases. Thank you so much for such awesome opportunity!!

  • 98
    Denise says:

    I would like to know what it takes to make a stamp set… what is the process? Probably not very exciting for most, but really would like to know how you anticipate the upcoming trends, because sometimes it seems like everyone is on the same page at the same time and it feels like it is all the same type of designs hitting the market at the same time and i wonder how that happens?

  • 99
    Peg says:

    Loved the pod cast. I think it would be fun to interview Ted. I know he certainly would be fun to hear his crafting secrets and hear more of his crafting jokes…:)

    I would love to win this prize – imagine going to Nichole’s new home and stamping! YIKES! So exciting!

    I loved the pod cast – Congratulations!
    Being a beginner stamper like Renee L. I too would love to hear more about how to achieve the perfect set up to start creating beautiful projects like the design team does. I would also love to hear about the process of how a stamp set is created! Last thing would be a design team “tips and tricks” on a technique they enjoy.

    Happy 4th Anniversary! Thanks for sharing our special event with all of us!

  • 104
    Linda B. says:

    I can’t even begin to tell you what a day of inspiration, and learning from Nichole would mean to me. I am always feeling like I hit a brick wall when trying to create cards, or other art work, and become so frustrated that I end up with incomplete projects lying around my craftroom.

    I would enjoy if when doing video tutorials, it could be explained how the designer has decided where to place images, ribbon, embellishments, etc. in respect to the balance of final piece of art.

    Thanks Nichole, and everyone at PTI for all your dedication, and creative imaginations.

    It was so fun to listen to the podcast this morning. Always fun to connect someone’s voice with their face… It was informative and delightful. Erin, congrats on pulling off such a great 1st PTI radio. Everyone did a great job. I will be looking forward to more to come. I adore PTI and have an addiction like so many. The quality and superior design always bring so much satisfaction as I work with these stamps. I usually give all my cards away and it gives me great joy as people get excited when they see PTI images for the first time. Putting ink to paper wouldn’t be the same, or as much fun without these images! The anniversary celebration has been fun. Congrats to all on your hard work and dedication. Nichole, you are incredibly generous and it will be TWO BLESSED PEOPLE who win time to spend with you. What an amazing gift. Thanks.

  • 111
    Francie says:

    Can I just say I loved the podcast? I mean, seriously. I thought the format and length were just perfect. And today’s prize package? Beyond belief good!! I live in busy NYC and a chance to get away to the country air of Cedar Ridge would be great, even if there was no stamping involved. But, add in meeting and stamping with Nichole and the trip gets even better. For future podcasts, I’d like hear how Heather developed her style and her design process. I’d also like to know how Erin comes up with her fantastic designs. Thanks, and happy anniversary!

    Becky P. says:

    I loved this podcast as well. PTI became even more personal to me, while I listened. I would like to have a podcast with the top ten for dummies design elements for a great card/project. I do not have any graphic design experience, but I would love to have a mini tutorial on the basics, as I am sure I would learn a lot of stuff that I could use for many projects.


  • 118
    Amy Philippon says:

    Wow, what an awesome prize!! I’d love to hear about the design process for the stamp sets. I also think it would be interesting to hear how trends are studied; where you get clues for the next greatest colors or images.

  • 120
    Cathy says:

    I am a Podcast junkie, so I can hardly contain my excitement at adding Papertrey to my weekly “listens.”

    Topics of interest include:
    – design elements – each DT member has a signature style, so I’d like to hear discussions about the elements each uses when creating

    – organization – all the bits and pieces to keep us creating (For example, I used to keep a scrap box. Now I keep my paper in the plastic wrap and slide the scraps in. I really used every bit this way.)

    – ideas for sending cards. Inspirations I guess.

    – ideas for using stamps for items other than cards.

    Can’t wait to hear even more.

  • 121
    Shay says:

    I really enjoyed the podcast and can’t wait to hear more of them. I enjoyed every part of the podcast. I would be interested in how all the design team honed their fabulous skills. What do they recommend for other stampers to do to become better cardmakers and project creators? I can’t wait for the next podcast.

  • 122
    LaNell says:

    Congratulations, PTI! I enjoyed the first episode of PTI Radio immensely! Erin, you did a wonderful job. I’d like to see more stamping incorporated into scrap booking layouts. What a terrific prize. This would be a wonderful experience. I love Nashville too.

    stampyblock says:

  • 124
    LJBean says:

    I enjoyed the first podcast. I tried to download the mp3 to load in my ipod, without success. Maybe you could add some directions with your pod casts to accomplish this; like system specs, procedure, what screens should pop up, etc.

  • 127
    Pat A. says:

  • 128
    Michele L. says:

    Hi girls,
    It was a great podcast and it was nice to put a voice to the name!

    Hugs and best wishes for many more years!

    kristyn says:

    Wow, that radio podcast was great!! better than I expected…but why? You have never let me down before? It was fun! And here I have had your name wrong, it’s not Heady with a long e sound but, Heady, like your head. haha. Just a little thing, but it all helps.

    I would love to know when the Designers have a particular “style”, how do they not venture out into another style? Don’t they get bored in their “style”? I ask that because I have a style but I always try to emulate someone elses style. I am actually envious of them for knowing their style and working within it instead of jumping all over and not being content, like me.

    I am soooo looking forward to more of these podcasts and making it Monday’s.

    I am enjoying this anniversary celebration and I would love to take my mom on this trip with me if I win. We would have a blast and it would be a memory of a lifetime. We both love Nichole. Thanks for the chance.

    Kathy Mc says:

    So thrilled I lived in the good old USA so I have a chance to win this awesome getaway and meet Nicole in person. She wouldn’t even have to feed me as I’d be all over the stamping session hopefully learning how she does such beautiful creations. Congratulations on your 4th Anniversary! I am really a newbie as only have one stamp set so far and am very impressed with that. Agree with other comments/ suggestions as to how the entire process works from a designer’s idea through to fruition and also how did PTI decide their product color choices (Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist, etc.)? Another topic for discussion might be some seasoned PTI stampers sharing their recommendations based on usage as to which products should be at the top of our long wish lists. Great podcast ~ thanks a million!

  • 145
    Judy says:

    I love this idea for Papertrey radio! I would

She just started and is absolutely in love with it, so getting the opportunity to spend a day with you would be HUGE for she and I both. And seeing your beautiful new home would be the icing on the cake

  • 150

    Loved the podcast! Fabulous job, Erin, Nichole & all–hearing your voices was SO much fun! I adored last year’s anniversary celebration with all the contests & prizes but this year’s managed to top it with all the wonderful customer involvement. For future podcasts, I agree with many others about wanting to hear more about the design processes, whether designing a new set or just making a card. Being part of the PTI Peeps has enriched my life so much and I look forward to all the exciting new activities and new friendships.

  • 151

  • 152
    Karen Ramsey says:

    WOW! I just can’t think of anything I would enjoy more than the chance to see Nichole”s beautiful home and spending time crafting with her. My best friend and I love PTI and this fourth anniversary is knocking our socks off!
    I am curious if any of the PTI gals have other crafts that they love as much as stamping. And how do they come up with all their brilliant card ideas when the mojo is lacking. And I too would like to hear about how an idea becomes a stamp set, from beginning to end.
    The podcast was great…Erin you did a super job!!

  • 153

    Have to admit that I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the 1st episode of Papertrey Radio was delightful! Erin you have such a lovely voice and really put those you were talking with at ease.

    The podcast was supercalifragalisticexpialadocious. I probably don’t have it spell right but it was super. Does Erin have a background in broadcasting? She sounds so professional.

    I LOVED Erin’s podcast. It was so much fun and just like she said, like having a chat with a good girlfriend! I just hope for more of the same and maybe some favorite tips from designers – an interview with each with special tips and ideas. This is a lovely prize. I sure would love to win. If I do, I plan to rub Nichole’s head and maybe some of her talent will rub off on me!!!

    I’d love to see interviews with each of the design team. What is a normal “work” day for them? For example, with Debbie, I know you’re cutting back on PTI but how have you juggled Spellbinders, Copics, Cosmo Cricket, Just Rite and so on along with PTI?! Just LOVE your work!
    How does one train themselves in the art of designing stamps? It’s occurred with several DT members and I’m curious as to how they do it!

    Being new to the whole PTI product line, I would love to get some advice as to WHERE TO START!!! I came across Michelle Wooderson’s blog and then clicked on the other design team’s links and have enjoyed their creativity and quite frankly, I don’t know where to start! How about a list of what the design team’s favorite or most used stamps/dies are? I know, that’s a hard one! Congrats on your 4th anniversary!

    I really enjoyed the podcast! I’m so glad you were able to “launch” it for us! I enjoyed the questions. Boy, don’t we all make a mess sometimes! I have been told that some of those bobbles are “Your Signature”! How wonderful to hear from the winner of all the stamp sets of 2010. I loved her idea of sharing! I would do the same! Lastly, Nicole, I will always long for a homemade card from my husband! Happy Anniversary Papertrey Ink!

    Fabulous prize! It would be great to have in depth interviews with each of the designers to learn more about them and how they come up with fresh ideas.

    Well, I would certainly love to have a collection of colors from PTI! I just purchased my first colors after Christmas, and I love them! Especially Ocean Tides ~ what a fabulous color! I think it’s my all time favorite cardstock color. I hope to try more this year, who knows, I may win..! 🙂

    I really need to see you all in person….coming to Chicago is very tempting. I am so glad I stumbled upon your website a few years ago. You have inspired me beyond belief and I just love everything you do and all the products you think up! Yeah, Papertrey

    Happy Birthday! Love all your wonderful colors, but I seem to gravitate to the Aqua Mist and Ripe Avocado for some reason, I guess because they’re both calming and cool. Your new features will be a fun way to find new ways to use all your products.
