    What a nice way to spend the day. I am so sorry that we already have plans to be in Disney that week or I would make the road trip. I hope everyone has a fabulous time and maybe this could be an annual or semi-annual event. Best of luck to everyone!

    Sadly I’ll be en route to Texas from Illinois this day. As soon as you have the dates locked down for your next Stamp+A+Faire, please let us know as I’m sure this one will be a huge success and I want to block out the dates for the next one. Thanks so much for offering us the opportunity to earn the Limited Edition Stamp set with an online purchase. Wishing you much success and good times with this new venture!!!

    CANNOT wait! Nichole, you are just incredible and you know what we want. Thanks so much for always going above and beyond. PTI was always the reason I went to CHA…now I don’t have to travel as far!

    Thank you Nicocle for doing this. You are an amazing woman who can put together an event in less than a month. I am sure this will be spectacular & first class all the way. Can’t wait to meet you & your wonderful design team.

    Yikes, this is close enough for me to drive. Just msg’d my Mother to see if she would be interested in attending. I am a newbie stamper / paper crafter. Neither one of us have been to an event like this. We both love PTI and its team!

    Nichole, I’m sure that this will be an awesome day. Sadly I won’t be able to attend but thank you very much for making a limited number of the special set available to those of us who are unable to attend. As always you think of everything.

    Wow!! I hope this will become an annual event, so that I can get out there on a future date. I cannot get there in person this year – though I would do just about anything to get there to meet the Design Team members! – but I will definitely be participating in the online activities as much as I can.

    Great idea! I would say good luck and I hope everything goes well, but if there’s anyone who can pull off an amazingly well-done and successful event, I know it is Papertrey. 😉

    This is so exciting and worth a trip out from Boston! Will we be able to purchase more than one ticket at a time so that we can buy a ticket for a friend or will it be one per person?

    Andrea Scoville says:

    SWOOOOONING… WOW!!!! If I hit the lottery I will BE there! $75 is a FANTASTIC deal for a day of pure luxury for anyone who knows Papertrey at all… unfortunately the hotel and the plane put it out of range for me. Maybe next year… Massachusetts??????

  • 15
    Nichole says:

    Kendra, you can purchase more than one ticket, they just have to be separate transactions because the order number is the ticket number for admission. There will be fields for you to fill in the name of the person attending for each ticket purchased. We look forward to seeing you there! 🙂

    Sounds like a fun time and you can’t beat the price. Alas, I will not be able to attend – taking a solo trip with the kids to see the grandparents. I can tell you I’d rather be in Ohio than driving across the Nevada desert with two pre-schoolers in the back seat. Now that I think about it, maybe I should reconsider the plan!

  • 17

    ohh nooo I’ll come back from France july 25th !!!! grrrrrr !!! I’m so sad, I hope you’ll soon organise an another retreat in Cinci !!!!
    I’m sure everyone will have a wonderfull day!

    Sounds FABULOUS!! A dream stamping day with all our favorite designers and forum friends! I am SO disappointed I cannot attend. If this is to become an annual event, hopefully we will be notified months in advance in the future so we can reserve a weekend just for PTI!

    Jealous, jealous, jealous! If I didn’t live in Cali and have newborn twin boys, I might consider a much deserved mommy-trip. Do it again next year??? I LOVE the opportunity to buy the stamp set, and hop the blogs! What a great way to live vicariously.

    Theresia says:

    mmm, Why is Cincinnati, USA so far away! In Europe we would say, come on over and play!
    We are stampers just like you, feel a bit sat as we are unable to join you.
    Please remember us overseas, and make a party you wouldn’t believe you could.

    I have been following the “peeks” at the new stamps coming out and I’ve put together a list that would “choke a horse”. The sample cards are absolutely delightful.

    Oh man…would I ever love to come to this event but alas cannot. I live in Upstate NY and it is too much $ with gas, tolls, and staying overnight somewhere! We never have anything good like this near where I live, just outside of Cooperstown, NY>the baseball place! Boo hoo hoo. Any chance u would consider closer next time. Maybe Syracuse? That is only and hour and twenty minutes from me. Will try to follow your blog that day to enjoy with all the lucky ones that are there. Would love to meet all you great ladies. ekc

    Holy Cow ! I just discovered you….and I’m tickled Pink ! Wish I had known about your event a bit sooner, as I’d LOVE to have come to Cinci, picked up my little Sister who lives there, and we’d both be lovin’ a fun day with y’all. But I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next one. …….how ’bout headin’ down to Tropical South Texas for an event….and NO – I don’t mean San Antonio or Corpus….I mean REALLY SOUTH !
