Senior DT Challenge: Text Boxed Revisited

It is one of my favorite times of the month once again!  Time for the Senior DT to revisit one of our fantastic previously released sets and bring you renewed inspiration for using it!

Text Boxed

This month we are focusing on Text Boxed.  This is a set I designed for the June 2007 release, the first year we were in business!  I have always held a special place for this set because of the amazing possibilities it holds.  I have always loved the layering opportunities with the separate smaller image to coordinate with the patterns found inside the boxes.  And then of course you could also use the smaller images for creating coordinating backgrounds.  So much fun and so many creative options to play with!

Let me show you some of the AMAZING projects that the team has created with this beautiful set!

    Nichole, I just want to tell you that I stumbled on Text Boxed somehow and was completely enchanted by it. It was how I discovered PTI and was my very first PTI set. It’s still my favorite. Thanks for revisiting what will alway be, for me, the set that defines PTI style!

    Love to see stamps revisited like this. Great inspiration by everyone.

    Nicole, I was just reading the papertrey news letter, and if that is your craft room that is being showcases, I just want to way how envious I am. It is not only gorgeous, but also very practical. Just love the idea of having a walk in closet as a storage area. It is so hard to make a room look neat and clean and also be functional. Fabulous room design.

    I love seeing the “reintroduction” of these sets from the past. Each one has been so timeless. Each new project is as fresh and inspiring as if they were never before seen stamp sets! What a great inspiration to “revisit” some of the older sets in my collection to try some new techniques or combine with newer products. I am a sold out Papertrey Ink fan!

    I think the new release is just fantastic! You inspire me to try color combinations I might not have considered and to see the stamps in new configurations. To win this package would be the highlight of my summer.
