5th Anniversary Day 1: 2012 Team & Our Favorite Things

I want to welcome each and every one of you to the very first post kicking off our 5th anniversary festivities!  There will be lots of fun, games, challenges and AMAZING prizes over the course of the next ten days and we hope you plan on joining us for every single one of them!  First, let me share today's sneak peeks of some of the products that are coming up later this release!

First up is a new super-sized floral collection from Tiffany Pastor that embraces her signature vintage grunge flair.  The images and die collection can be paired and layered in endless ways

The Think Big Favorites collection continues, this month featuring larger versions of birthday sentiments taken from 2011 Birthday Tags stamp set.  A true stamper can never have enough birthday stamps!


The last peek for today is of a new 2-step background set I designed.  The versatility and color combination options for this new set are literally limitless!

And now onto the announcements for today's anniversary festivities!  Today I get the opportunity to re-introduce our design team members.  Each of these ladies are such an important part of our company.  Not only do they provide endless amounts of inspiration for ALL of us, they are also able to look at products in unique ways and showcase how each one can be used in ways we would never have imagined.  I always like to dedicate the first day of anniversary festivities to celebrating their talents!  Since it is our 5th Anniversary, I have asked each of them to share their Top 5 Favorite products as well as a special memory from their time with Papertrey!


Ashley's headshot
Ashley Cannon Newell is a true super star within the paper crafting industry and her signature style is one of the many things that make her such a valuable member of the team.  Not only is she able to infuse products with new life and purpose, she has an amazing sense of color & design that provides a unique perspective.  Even though Ashley has only been with us a short time, she has tackled new responsibilities with vigor and executes every task & assignment to perfection.  I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to know her and have the opportunity to work with her.


"Although I'm the newbie on the team (starting in November 2011), I've already experienced some great moments. A funny moment from behind the scenes involved a forum message from Jenn that she was trying to make me green. I was a bit confused as to why she would want me to be green. But after a few minutes, I realized she was trying to change my forum account to a different status. Now, I'm green!"

Betsy's headshot
Betsy Veldman has been with us since 2008, and she has really grown so much as a stamper and designer since joining the team.  Without fail after each group post, every newsletter I am left thinking "Now why didn't I think of that!"  She is just so clever, especially with her unique uses for dies. She is always so good about pairing up new and old products together as if they were made to coordinate.  Betsy's use of bright colors is always like a ray of sunshine coming through the computer screen.  It is an absolute honor to work with her, to have the opportunity to work with someone that is so unbelievably talented, punctual, thorough, creative and just overall an amazing person inside and out.


"The email from Nichole asking me to join the team came on a Saturday afternoon back in September of 2008.  I was absolutely thrilled and astonished to say the least!  I have enjoyed absolutely ever product release since then…all 41 (WOW!) of them!  I want to thank Nichole and team for the oportunity, and for continuing to inspire me with month after month of innovative new products!  One of my favorite memories from the past 3 years was getting to meet the team and many of the customers at the first Stamp-a-Faire event.  The funniest (scariest) memory?  The 45 minutes we spent looking for the box of clear blocks at 1 AM the night before Stamp-a-Faire!  For those few minutes, we were more than a bit panicked thinking that 200 stampers were coming and we would have nothing to stamp with!"

Danielle's headshot
Danielle Flanders has been with us for a year, but she has fit in so seamlessly that it seems as though she has been with us forever.  Every time I visit Danielle's blog, I feel as though I am teleported into a crafty interpretation of Country Living magazine.  The wonderful homespun feeling she is able to infuse into each of her creations is one of her many great gifts, in addition to the heart you can see she pours into everything she does.  Asking Danielle to join the team has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I am extraordinarily proud of her and all of her many accomplishments.


"I've been with Papertrey Ink since February of 2011, and what a year it has been! Becoming a design team member here has been one of the best things that happened to me, getting to know all of the warm, friendly designers, and becoming like a family has been a wonderful experience for me. I have learned a lot about myself as a designer also. I love the challenges each month that push me beyond my comfort zone. Playing with these amazing products has really ignited my passion for paper crafting again!"

Dawn's headshot
Dawn McVey is well known for her witty humor, her bright & bold color choices and the amazing layering she always seems to incorporate flawlessly into her projects.  Her contributions to Papertrey over the last 3-1/2 years are innumerable and appreciated more than I can express.  We have all become enamored with the quantity & quality of the projects she creates each month for the countdowns, especially when introducing product of her own design.  Her bubbly, vivacious personality shines through in both her projects and the conversational tone of her blog posts.  Dawn brings an endless amount of joy into my life and I count her dedication, her creativity, her friendship and her kindness among my many blessings.


"I started with Papertrey back in July of 2008 and have had so many wonderful experiences with Papertrey over the years….joining the design team, the friendships I've made with the girls on the team as well as the customers, designing my own line of products, being promoted to the Senior design team, and of course, all of the wonderful Papertrey events I've participated in over the years.  I can honestly say that Nichole Heady is the kindest, most caring boss I've ever worked for and not only that, her work ethic is unparalleled.  She doesn't ask us to do anything that she's not willing to do herself and to top it all off, her creativity astounds me….even 3 1/2 years later.  My job with Papertrey is something I consider to be a tremendous blessing…I'm extremely grateful for every opportunity that Nichole, Jane & Julie have given me.  

When reminiscing about the past few years, I'm reminded of the first CHA I ever attended and how star struck I was, at seeing so many industry "superstars" that I'd been following online for so long.  Nichole pretty much laughed at me the entire time!  Haha.  I'll never forget a year or two after that, the night before one of those CHA Supershows was about to start….all of us on the design team that were there, as well as Nichole, worked late into the night in our hotel room, creating garlands to hang in the booth as a finishing touch the next morning.  It was so fun to be crafting with my sweet friends — we'd never gotten to do that before, all of us in the same room together.  As I recall, we were all a bit slap-happy at that point too, and the laughter that ensued still makes me smile to this day.  I've certainly had many great moments with Papertrey over the years and I look forward to many, many more."

Debbie's headshot
Debbie Olson has been with us for the LONG haul, all five years, all sixty product releases, our CHA travels and  so much more.  One of my favorite things about Debbie is the amazing, seemingly effortless "polish" she puts on every single project.  You can just look at an unlabeled project and instantly know that it is a Debbie Olson creation.  It remains to be said that her Copic coloring talent is at a level of it's own, something that I myself try to improve upon with the gentle guidance to shares regularly on her blog.  Debbie is a true gem and someone that will always be one of the "most valuable players" on our team!


"I've been blessed to be with Papertrey Ink from the beginning, way back when there was only ONE stamp set a month! My favorite PTI memories have been when the whole team is together–not only the designers, including Nichole, but also Jane and Julie, whom most of you have not met. That first CHA Consumer show was QUITE a memory-maker. Seeing the crowd lined up outside the PTI booth, and helping in the never-ending restocking efforts, I began to see what a creative force Papertrey Ink had become. It was wonderful to meet so many customers whom we'd "met" before only in the forum or on blogs, but who seemed like friends we'd always known."

Erin's headshot
Erin Lincoln is associated with out-of-the-box creativity and a quick wit, both of which come through her many contributions to Papertrey over the last two years.  She is truly gifted in transforming simple images into unconventional works of art and making unique product pairings that leave you inspired to go through your stash more often and use more of it!  Erin single-handledly operated Papertrey Radio last year as well as many of the developments wit our Make It Monday series.  She has an incredibly easy-going personality that makes you feel like your with "the girl next door" and make a connection quickly.  Erin is a gem, an irreplaceable and important part of our team.  I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with her and *hopefully* allow a little of her talent rub off on me!


"Although I've been on the design team for two years now (started February 2010), when listing traits for myself, a stamper and a designer is actually pretty far down on the list. There so many more things that go on during the day that take priority–wife, mother, friend, daughter, sister, wild woman trying to hold it all together by the skin of her teeth. And so, I pretty much just go about my daily life like the rest of you do. One day, I was doing just that when I took my kids to a splash park this past summer. Here I am, running after two toddlers in your typical mom tankini and sporting the typical post pregnancy weight, hair soaking wet and in my face, sunscreen smeared all over because I never seem to get it all rubbed in, looking like I have chicken pox because mosquitoes really really like me in the summer, and probably looking all out exasperated at my offspring when a blue moon seemed to rise over the summer afternoon. I hear an, "Are you Erin Lincoln?" from one of the fellow moms at the splash park. Let me tell you, getting recognized never happens. As a group,  stampers are a small percentage of the population. Compound that with stampers who are PTI fans, and your pool of people is minimal. And so, I had a lovely conversation with Sherry from New Jersey, trying to fight all my impulses to run and cover myself with a towel. What can I say, I'm a girl. Sometimes vanity takes over and you wish you could have made the best impression possible. But in the same vain, it had a certain level of comedy to it, which is how I tend to roll. Got to just go with it. Sherry, it was very nice to meet you. Let's do it again sometime. I'll make sure I'll have a little make-up and more clothing on next time."

Heather's headshot
Heather Nichols is one of those people that you quickly come to know as a go-getter.  When she puts her mind to something, nothing is going to stand in her way.  It is one of the things I love most about Heather through the five years that we have gotten to work together.  Not only do these attributes apply to her work with us, but also with her personal life and all she does for both of her daughters and the rest of her family.  Heather is definitely a designer with a love for all things vintage and I have always admired the way that she is able to embrace that love and turn the entire traditional vintage style into something all her own with a rustic twist.  Heather's dedication in staying with us since the beginning, dedicating herself to us for five years, is a true reflection of her much appreciated loyalty.


"I have been with Papertrey Ink from the very beginning and it is such a part of me that I really couldn't imagine my life with out it now. I honestly can say that I LOVE my job from designing stamp sets, creating projects, blogging & video tutorials, brainstorming new ideas, and working with the design team girls and Nichole, Jane & Julie. This is a dream job for me and I have Papertrey Ink to thank for the opportunity to live it out. I so look forward when we can get together in person at CHA or at Stamp-a-Faire, etc. (we need to make it more than once a year to see each other!) We all work hard, but there is so much fun mixed into it too. There are so many fun things to look back on – phone calls with Mish about everything under the sun, knowing if I need ANYTHING that Nichole is a phone call away, release week procrastination phone calls with Dawn, entertaining flight attendants with Betsy on our flight to Cincinnati, fun little mementos & memories from dinners and get togethers – I have laughed until my sides split so many times, girls on the team getting me through a particularly rough patch, great mail surprises throughout the year – I count the our monthly release boxes in that one, and so much more I could go on and on. Looking back makes me look forward to what's ahead with great excitement! There are so many wonderful memories and moments yet to come. Happy 5th anniversary, Papertrey Ink, I am so honored to able to say that I am part of such a fabulous company!"

Jessica's headshot
Jessica Witty joined us just over a year ago, but her sense of humor has already happily infiltrated every corner of our private team forum.  No, and I mean no one, has every made me laugh out loud as often, and to think its just from reading her written words on the screen.  I have always appreciated Jessica's clean & simple approach to paper crafting, her modern sense of color & design.  These things are the main reasons why I asked her to join the team.  She has exceeded every single expectation I had for her as a member of the team and I feel as though she continues to raise the bar for herself.  When I think of Jessica, I think of smiles, sunshine and lots of bright colors splashing across the screen.  I think about how fortunate we are to count her as a member of our team.


"This year my Papertrey experience seemed to be about the Papertrey people and products inspiring me to strectch myself creatively.  The project I chose as my favorite feels one that is closest to my true style, but so many of my other favorite projects and memories from this year were about being inspired to try new things.  The Garden Variety set sparked the idea for the mint cake pots… the Fruit Fusion sets finally gave me the inspiration to try fancy cookies… the Happy Trails set brought about watercoloring… a suggestion from Nichole sparked my Rolodex gratitude journal.  Every time I'd try something new I'd also get nervous that it would turn out to be a giant failure and right about then, I'd get an encouraging email from Nichole or a comment from one of the other DT gals!  I've loved the freedom, encouragement, and friendship involved in this year's creative adventure!"

Lisa's headshot
Lisa Johnson is one of the original team members as well, starting with us way back in February of 2007 when she created projects for our first stamp set, Paper Tray.  One of the things I think about most when I think about all of the years I have worked with Lisa is her growth.  She has grown so much as a designer, slowly allowing her true style to emerge and be the best it can be.  Through her I have learned so much and have been inspired on numerous occasions.  Her dedication to her family is incredibly admirable and definitely one of her many traits that I look up to.  With that being said, Lisa will be stepping back from her responsibilities on the Senior Design Team and will instead be focusing on a lighter work load within the capacity of the Release Team.  This was an important decision for her as she evaluates her family life and her commitment to put them first.  I am so appreciative that she is staying on with us, but admittedly will miss her contributions to the newsletter along with the other responsibilities she is relinquishing.


"I've been with Papertrey Ink from the very beginning! I've gathered so many fond memories while I've journeyed alongside as they've grown. Papertrey has become family to me. I am constantly in awe of the progression, passion, and strength of this fine company. I have far too many memories that are "favorites" to be honest… but I will say that Stamp-A-Faire was a huge highlight! If you all could have seen (from the backstage) the heart and soul that was poured into that event… the planning… the detail! Your breath would have been taken away! Nichole constantly put little details into things with the sole purpose of making the guests feel special. Amazing! Spending more time in person with my fellow Sr. design team members, Julie, Jane, and Nichole was incredible too…even though I do turn into a bit of a spaz when I get no sleep. (Beyond silly… *sigh*) And… meeting so many of YOU!!!  I was gifted with several sweet, lovely, and unexpected handmade goodies from attendees! Man… was I glad that I’d thought to make a few extra felt flower pins as a "thank you" just in case someone had made something. It was so fun to "swap" some handmade love! It was truly a wonderful time in my life that I will always cherish!"

Maile's headshot
Maile Belles is someone who has quickly risen to the top in regards to her position within the paper crafting community.  I remember the first time I ran across her blog and how awe-sinspired I was by no only one or two projects she had created, but EVERY. Single. One.  Maile has the uncanny ability to take just a stamp or two, thrown in with a few dies, and create something so unexpected, so fresh, so unique, yet always in an amazing simple & streamlined way.  From experience, I know that sometimes the simpler the project, the more time execution can take, which leads me to admire Maile and the way she creates these types of projects over and over again, completely flawlessly.  She is such a strong designer that I respect and look forward to working with for many years to come.


"Sometimes I find myself still in awe of the fact that I am part of the Papertrey Ink Design Team.  I mean… How luck am I to work with such talented and heartwarming ladies?! Ever since joining the team (gosh, exactly two years ago already!) I’ve been surrounded by the kindest people around.  Of course, I do love the supply boxes that come to my door step every month, but the support from these ladies behind the scenes is something I will cherish for a lifetime."

Melissa Phillips headshot
Melissa Phillips manages to add a sprinkle of this and a dash of that to each of her projects, creating little paper wonderlands that you just want to climb inside.  Melissa's magic is one of her best attributes and she is able to add it to al of her creations, whether playing with fabric, paper, wood or any other medium.  Who knew die-cut corrugated cardboard could look so good?  I have asked Melissa to step into Lisa's vacated senior team position and Melissa has graciously accepted.  I know she will be amazing with her new responsibilities and tasks.  Melissa truly proves the point that absolutely anything can be fixed or at least improved with just a sprinkle of glitter and a whole lot of love.


"My time with Papertrey Ink began in September of 2008.  I was so nervous to be joining the team and felt incredibly inadequate.  There are many, many times when I still feel inadequate, but the nerves are gone.  They quickly disappeared as I came to realize what a special group of women I had the chance to associate with.  I have never been part of such a warm and thoughtful design team.  There is an incredible mix of personalities and I feel we all take on different roles in the little family that has been created.  We have a sweet mother of the group, a prankster, a cheerleader, a fireball, a peacemaker, a sassy but sweet, a life of the party, etc.  What I have loved most is the incredible level of respect I have encountered with each design team member and with the team as a whole  We have had plenty of good laughs behind the scenes but with that we have also shared tears. I am so thankful for my time with Papertrey Ink and for my experiences with each of the wonderful women I have met.  I have learned so much from every one of them."

Michelle's headshot
Michelle Wooderson has a knack for making everything look effortless.  Just put a little of that there, and a little of that here, stitch this, attach a button here… and voila!  But we all know that it comes naturally to her because of the amazing designer's eye she possesses.  I have long admired her unique approach to layouts, her layering, the mixing & matching she does, well… just about everything!  Not only is Michelle talented beyond measure, she is also a fabulous person whether you refer to the little random acts of kindness she frequently sends off to friends or the priority she makes for both f her daughters, her "reds".  I am honored to have Michelle as a part of our team and I know her creativity will just continue to flower & flourish for many years to come.


"Since my beginnings with Papertrey in July of 2008, we've had some great laughs.  My favorite, funny moment with Papertrey was at CHA a few years ago during the Papertrey Supershow event.  It was hard, hard work and very tiring by the time it was all said and done.  We had a great time with the customers and it's always a good time when I get to see my Papertrey co-workers.  Nichole's husband David is always a trooper.  He's so calm and just works along at a steady pace.  I always like to razz him a little bit just for fun.  He was vacuuming the carpet in the booth one day and we were all frazzled because the electrical outlet only allowed the vacuum cord to reach about 10 feet.  I devised a plan for David.  I found some cardboard tubes that were leftover from some paper rolls we lined the make and take tables with. I added about 3 of the tubes to the end of the vacuum hose so that it extended about 15 feet.  Viola, a solution for David.  He could literally stand in one spot and vacuum the entire booth almost.  We were all tired and slap happy by that time so we had a good laugh at that one!"

Jennifer's headshot
While I have re-introduced all of our Design Team members, I also want to pay special tribute to my dear friend & assistant, Jennifer Ellefson.  Jennifer is not only a dedicated, loyal employee but she also has a heart-of-gold that exudes more kindness than you can imagine.  Having the opportunity to work with her on a daily basis is truly a treat and I am so grateful that we met when we did and were able to make such a special connection.


"My favorite memory with Papertrey Ink would have to be the time we spent in Chicago for CHA-S 2010. There's nothing like meeting people who share your passion! So many people that I 'knew' from the message board came up and introduced themselves – and it was like instant friendship! It's an amazing phenomenon, but it just goes to prove that this shared hobby of ours can make for fantastic friendships."

Jennifer has a new title & set of responsibilities with us as our Communications Director.  This means that she will be acting as our official representative on our forum, she will be handling many of the responsibilities behind the scenes here on the blog as well as coordinating the events on our forum & prize winners information, organizing the newsletters and so much more.  Basically representing a direct line of communication between the customers and the three owners.  With these changes, she is stepping away from the majority of her customer service responsibilities to focus on her new tasks.  We are excited to work with her in this capacity and we are quite certain that you will enjoy seeing more of her as she fulfills these responsibilities.


Pick one of the team members favorite projects from above to use as inspiration for your very own creation.  Your project can draw from their layout, color scheme, technique or anything else that inspires you.  If you are linking from your blog, I urge you to take this opportunity to write a little thank you note to these dedicated & talented gals.  They do so much every single month and we are all so lucky to have the opportunity to freely use them as a muse in our own creative creations.

2. Your project must use at least one Papertrey project.

    O.M.G. I think I would *faint* if I won THAT!
    What can I say the design team at PTI are an absolute stand out – they make my jaw drop each and every month with their outstanding talent, ideas and execution. (They MAKE me buy A LOT of stamps!) The other things I love is there are so many different styles so there is definitely something for everybody!

    Wow! Where to begin? I check here daily for news and inspiration. Nichole, I have followed your progress since I first saw your work in Papercrafts magazine, before Papertrety existed. I could pick out your pieces without reading the credits. It’s amazing that you have gathered so much talent in one place. All of you, just keep doing what you are doing and I will be there cheering you on.
    Thanks so much,

    What an awesome giveaway pack. What I love most about PTI is seriously the DT.. sometimes I look at a set and have no idea how to use it until I take a look at the DT exmaples and DING! Suddenly I know what I can do with my new products. The DT is definitely cream of the crop and the best inspiration for me.

    One of the most alluring elements to PTI is the design team. I swoon looking at their creations; I can’t tell you for many months my bank account has been drained due to their lovely projects. Didn’t think I’d need a stamp set, die, embellie, etc. until seeing the possibilities through their creations. Happy Anniversary, and thanks for the chance to win.

    The design team is so inspirational! Now that I’ve joined a design team, I’m blown away with the consistency of your work. It’s all well and good to do a challenge here and there, but you all WORK and make it inspiring. I love seeing what you all come up with each month and the Make It Mondays are one of my favorite things, even if I don’t always try them in time to get them posted.

    Oh. My. Goodness. What a prize! The inspiration the DT provide is awsome. An amazing amount of styles, and something there to suit everyone. I have to say, the PTI DT is the first place I go for inspiration when my mojo is lacking. And the first stamps I reach for? PTI of course!

    What a gorgeous page full of creative eye candy… everyone’s projects are sooo beautiful and make me want to spend the entire day in my stamping room (the people at the super bowl party will understand, won’t they?). Thank you all so much for sharing these projects and beautiful products AND inspiration today and everyday! You all bring a smile to my face and a spark to my creativity every day. And thank you to Nicole and Papertrey (AND David) for all that you do for us and for offering this GORGEOUS and SCRUMPTIOUS prize!

    Happy Anniversary PTI! You have become part of my every-day-life…I eagerly check your site each day, as well as many of the design team members. I truly do consider you as friends. Your designs inspire, teach and stretch me to be better. Thank you all, ladies. You are truly a unique company. Jen, you exemplify the word Customer Service…I agree with Nichole…you have a heart as big as all outdoors and go above and beyond for your customers. You may be behind the scenes, but the show couldn’t go on without you!

    Congratulations PTI on 5 wonderful years. I love PTI products because they are so versatile and creative and I count on the design team to help me get my mojo going with neat ways to use the products. Many times, long after the release I’m going back to these blogs for inspiration when making a special card for a special person. Thanks to all the design team (and Jennifer too) for all the work that goes into these monthly posts.

    Happy 5th Anniversary Papertrey Ink! What talent all of you have. I look forward to each month’s release, convinced that I don’t need one other thing in my stash, but then here come the fabulous projects and there goes my budget! I am always inspired by the creativity of all the design team and of course Nicole! Great products and a great company. Congratulations on a job well done!

    Karen Walker says:

    I set aside extra time each month during the Release because I know I will want to peruse everyone’s creations for tips and techniques. I cannot begin to tell you how much inspiration this group of designers has provided. Their blogs are in my Reader and I follow them all month, but it’s the Papertrey Release that I relish each month. Papertrey Ink stamps, dies, and products are my go-tos for nearly every project! And the Anniversary posts–well, the time spent here for the next ten days will definitely be increased! Thanks to all of you—from the designers to the folks who pack my goodies so carefully each month!

    As a relative newbie to PTI, this is my first time to experience an anniversary release.

I look forward to the next 15 days!!

    HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY PTI – and THANK YOU to all the design team for the continuous inspiration every month. Yours are the blogs I go to for the know how and ideas when I am blank for a starting point. Love the sneak peaks and final reveal. Unfortunately shipping costs to UK make your products out of my reach. May be one day you would consider having a supplier based in the UK for all us UK devotees of your brilliant products. Petal

    I’m not a particularly creative person and stamps have always been “hard” for me! Oh … I can stamp an image … but doing *something* with the image is where my brain freezes! The monthly PTI Design Team images helps break that brain freeze. Seeing how they use and combine images has always inspired me! Thank you to the PTI Design Team .. and especially to Nicole whose simple elegance has a tendency to “blow my mind”, in some way, every month!

    WOW! What a fabulous prize package. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    I love the design teams inspiration prjects each month. They often encourage me to try a color combination outside my usual comfort zone. I also love the hints about repurposing stamps (i.e., flowers into butterflies).

    I think my favorite tip has been learning to create my own backgroung papers using elements of various stamp sets.

    Thank you to everyone on the deisgn team for sharing your creativity.

    Happy Anniversary! My real tribute to the DT would be pages long, telling Nichole and each DT member what I love about them. My Reader’s Digest version: Nichole and the PTI design team is second to none. Each month you astound not only me but your hundreds/thousands of fans. Your talent is so superior, you have made us groupies. Personally, you have given me immeasurable pleasure. During each release, I anxiously awake each morning to relish the images on my computer screen. I am amazed by the beauty,creatvity and versatility and variety of styles. For me, it is truly like visiting an art show. Thank you for the gift of art and the glimpses into your warm hearts. I do not have a large craft budget but I have an unlimited capacity to enjoy art at its finest.

  • 70

    Well THAT is the craziest prize package ever! We have all come to “expect” this generosity over the years, so I want to take this time to say that I appreciate it all SO MUCH! Not only the prizes and the excellent products but all of the wonderful talent, creativity, and inspiration Nichole and each of the DT members has given us. It’s like a daily visit to a playground for grown-ups πŸ™‚ Stamping has brought so much joy into my life, and I count PTI as one of the reasons why I am still creating. Thanks so much, ladies! So excited to see what’s to come in the next year!

    Isabel Z says:

    I couldn’t be happier to wish PTI Happy Anniversary. I have been a PTI fan from almost its beginning and can say that PTI is part of my daily life. I check the PTI blog and the design team members every day for inspiration and always come away with a new idea or two. You are such a talented, creative, and artistic group of ladies and because of your ideas I always have to have just one more PTI set or product. Keep the ideas coming and I will have to build a PTI wing onto my home!

  • 73
    caryn says:

    When I started my love affair with PTI just over two years ago I had a definite favourite on the DT – now I find every member so individually inspirational that I have trouble knowing who to visit first when the projects start coming in during the releases. I don’t think there is another design team with such a variety of styles anywhere else. Thank you all for such a wealth of ideas, inspiration and humour each month. Here’s to many more years to come.

    So excited for the fun to begin! I believe that the inspiration we get each month from the design team is equal to the best idea book … and we get it all for free! They show us so many new slants on how to use the new sets and incorporate the old ones too. Thanks so much!

  • 77
    Debbie R. says:

    I love all the inspiration the design team and Nichole gives us. I don’t think out of the box, so when they do it gives me a whole new perspective on a stamp set. I love the five days of the countdown with all the wonderful samples. The rest of my month seems kind of blah after that! Thanks to all of you!

  • 78

    The talent in the Papertrey Ink design team is truly ‘awesome’. I love seeing all the variations of style, paired with great design and heartfelt creativity. Congratulations to you ALL.

    Oh My God….where do I begin. These ladies have helped me progress to the stamper that I am today. Each and everyone have something special to offer. Coming from a large family and having six sisters and five brothers I feel like each and every one of you are family to me and I cherish all of you. Just wish I could have more one on one time with each of you. Loved the opportunity to meet some of you in person over the years. Keep the inspiration coming! Love your work and your giving spirit.

    Beth R. says:

    I can’t believe it has been 5 years already ! Just goes to show how fast the months go by as we axiously await the next release!
    I spend far too much time looking at “inspiration” online when I should be creating or doing something domestic….but in all reality the DT here is by far the best I have found. The ideas they come up with month after month is astounding. I seriously dont know how you do it. My brain must not be wired for continuous creativity, I get stumped and stiffled when making a birthday card in a crunch !
    I send a heartfelt THANK YOU to anyone & everyone that works so hard to give me my Papertrey fix. I would be a very sad stamper without you.
    Here’s to another 5 years……..

    Happy 5th Anniversary Papertrey Ink. You are, without a doubt, my favorite vendor in this huge craft of stamping. Your Design Team is the best, your product quality is the best, your ability to make each customer feel important is the best, and your dedication to guiding us to use and love each and everything we buy is THE BEST!!! Love you, PTI.

    This company is very new to me. I would love to enter, but don’t have any PTI products yet. Is there any way to enter without a PTI product?

    It was because of Debbie and Mish that I became a true Papertray Ink fan and customer. Somehow I discovered their blogs back in 2008 and I’ve never looked back! I am continually inspired by their work, along with Melissa’s. Happy 5th anniversary!

    This is the best design team in the business. I love following their countdown creations as well as what they are creating the rest of the month. When I am looking for a card to CASE, it is nearly always from one of these talented ladies!

  • 115

    What I love about the PTI design team is each member has their own unique style and the team as a whole offers inspiration for all styles. Happy 5th anniversary!

    Happy 5th Anniversary Papertrey Ink!!! I found you guys in July 2009. I began stamping again. It was through the inspiration of Nicole and the Design team that made it happen. Having the visual inspiration help me think outside the box (occasionally) is a treasure!! Thanks PTI Team!

  • 117

    Oh MY! What a prize! But I have to say, finding out about Paper Trey Ink was my best surprise of 2011! I am actually shocked to find out it’s only been 5 years, for some reason, I had the feeling it had been around for 10 or 15! You all seem to fit together like a puzzle, I love every single one of your blogs, and to have such a talented leader.. you’ve got it all! One of my recent posts was “PTI, my new LOVE”. I truly mean it, your stamps and DT are above and beyond everything out there. *Special shout out to Melissa Phillips.. her blog is what brought me to PTI’s blog, her stunning creations are what led me to buy PTI stamps, and the love and beauty in each of her blog posts is what keeps me going, keeps me inspired. So thanks Melissa, I so admire you as a designer and a mother :)*

    Debra B-H says:

    Happy Anniversary! The first thing I do every morning is to check out Nichole’s blog, then I go down the list of each of the design team member’s blogs. How can you not be inspired by at least one of them. You have assembled such a diverse and talented group of ladies and I love to see what they come up with each and every month. PTI is pretty much the only products I use any more. Keep up the wonderful work!

    Happy Anniversary! What I love MOST about Papertrey ink is the design team. It seems as though PTI has captured the most talented and most kindest people in the industry. I keep coming back because of their attitude. Sweet, helpful, obvious love for the craft and for their team members and family. It doesn’t hurt that they have beautiful, very durable products that are worth every penny! Congrats to 5 years and here’s to many more!!!!

    Janet says:

    Finding Papertrey took me beyond what I ever thought I could do. I can’t draw a straight line; not an ounce of artistic talent in me. But through the glorious creativity of your Design Team, I’ve impressed myself with the way I can vary your ideas. And the stamps and dies! I, too, tell myself I have enough–until the next

    Kathy Camasso says:

    5 years already??? Wow, it seems like yesterday when I bought my very first set. I’ve been inspired in countless ways by the Papertrey team and love to head to their blogs to start each day. Thank you to all of you for sharing your talents with us!

  • 127

    Papertrey has the BEST design team in the industry…I learn new things constantly from their MIM videos to release week creations, they rock!

  • 132

    Congratulations Papertrey on your 5th Anniversary! Your entire DT as well as yourself, Nichole, have inspired me to be the stamper I am today. Before I found your company (and all the wonderful people on the forum), I felt I had zero creativity and zero talent as a ‘crafty’ person. Your quality products, endless samples & inspiration, and knowledge that you so freely share has allowed me to grow and express myself as a cardmaker. THANK YOU! I can’t tell you how much this hobby has been a sanity-saver to me. I am so happy that it was your company that started me on my path!

    I truly cannot wait to see what you gals have in store for us in the upcoming festivities! Im sure you’ll be knocking our socks off!

    Marjorie Henseler says:

    PTI products are amazing – but it’s what Nichole and the designers DO with them that blows me away each and every month. There are too many projects and inspiration moments to mention individually. Sometimes I just sit and stare, with my jaw on the floor, at the creativity!

    Kathie Duffy says:

    Happy Anniversary PTI! That is quite the prize package!! Being somewhat newly introduced to PTI (October 2011), I certainly appreciate Nichole and the entire Design Team. Your creations provide me with such inspiration, and I look forward to what comes out each and every month. The projects give me that wow factor to rejuvenate the creativeness in me on a monthly basis, and you all give me more than one reason to need “THAT” stamp set or other product. The versatility that each set lends makes it go that much further, so that at some point in time or another each set gets some love!! I have been a stamper for years using another stamping company but fell out of love with my cardmaking, but now thanks to each of your styles, passions and creativity, I am now a loyal PTI fan, follower and product user! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in your anniversary celebration and congrats on a job well done, FABULOUS products and hitting the 5 yr milestone!

  • 144
    Kym says:

    PTI has become an important part of my life, like an old, dear friend. Each month I look forward to first the sneak peaks, and then the projects and then the big reveal! Each month I say I am going to spend conservatively and then when I see everything, the budget goes out the window as I am just so inspired! I have a job that isn’t very creative so I am so grateful for the role PTI plays in allowing me to flex that creative muscle at home! A great big thank you and Happy Anniversary!

  • 145
    Andrea Ritter says:

    Happy anniversary.
    I love the variety of the design teams styles and work. There is inspiration vor every project I can think of.
    And often when I look at a finished card I realize the card from your blogs I recreated without being concious while working on it. Thank you for all your inspiration and creativity.

    Leigh Penner says:

    I discovered PTI during last year’s anniversary celebrations…. and I’m so glad I did! Before that, I didn’t really enjoy stamping. However, in following Nichole’s and the wonderfully fabulous DT’s blogs, I’ve learned so many new techniques and have really come to love stamping! Thanks for the fabulous products and the wonderful inspiration!

    Wow, what a great prize, to honor a great team! Prior to finding PTI, I used wood block stamps. I stumbled across a PTI blog during the release that contained “Piece of Cake”.

The PTI Design Team are the big leagues! I love to see their projects each month and gleam some inspiration. They coincidentally are your best saleswomen … you have products I never knew I needed until I saw them in brilliant use by your DT! Happy 5th Anniversary & here’s to many more!

    Oh my goodness! Such an unbelievable prize package!! I have loved everything I’ve purchased from PTI (still trying to get the hang of Delightful Doilies!) What great memories each DT member has shared. Love Erin’s story-I can only wish it’d been me that had spied her on the splash pad! Jennifer, I appreciate all the work you do behind the scenes. I’m sure it’s way more than we will ever know. This is going to be a fun time. Happy 5th Anniversary Papertreyink!!

    I’m so very happy that I found you when I did. I was looking for something specific on my blog the other day and noticed that half of the posts have PTI as a label. A true testament to how much of my stamp collection and what I reach for endlessly are your products.
    Thank you to all the amazing DT and Nichole for the fabulous inspiration each and every month! I can’t tell you how many times I think I don’t want/need something based on the sneak peek…then the preview comes and I want everything!

  • 190
    Karla J says:

    Happy Anniversary. I can’t tell you how much I look forward to the releases every month. All the designers inspire me with such creative projects. My bank account really wishes you were a little less inspiring, because every time I think maybe I don’t need that set you then you show a really great design and it then becomes a “I’ve got to have it” set.

  • 191
    Moz says:

    The only thing better than winning all these amazing products, would be being able to visit the USA to meet up with one of your awesome DT. I follow most everyone of them and am inspired by every project they produce. The PTI inspiration is evident on most of my cards and through that, I spread the word in South Africa about the most awesome company for stampers! Best wishes on your 5th anniversary and may you go on to inspire us for the next 5, 10, 15……. years!

    I am continually blown away by what the design team (and Nichole) comes up with each month. Just when I think I have seen it all or don’t need another _______ set, I see a fabulous sample and HAVE to have it! Of the many design teams I have seen, PTI’s seems so meant for one another. Each member’s style is unique and they all complement each other so beautifully. Happy 5th anniversary Papertrey Ink! Thanks for your big hearts and all the great inspiration (and for the terrific prize up for grabs!).

    I know that everyone has a designer that they feel more “in tuned with”, but I appreciate that you offer a whole range of styles and approaches. I don’t know how many times I’ve perused the DT projects and thought, now why didn’t I think of that? Overflowing inspiration!

    Amy Gutknecht says:

    First, it says so much about Nicole that she takes time to honor her staff. As one of the many “worker bees” at my job, I can not express how much it means to me to have an incredible boss who makes a point to sing my praises or say thank you for a job well done. It makes all the long hours worth it. Way to go, Nicole! You have a great team and I’m sure it means a lot to them to know you appreciate all that they do.

    Second, I’d like to thank the design team. As the release happens each month, I tune in – coffee in hand – carefully scrolling through Nicole’s blog – cautiously savoring each section of the post. Sometimes, the sneak peeks don’t catch my eye right away. Sometimes, I foolishly think “Hey, I might not spend another $70 on PTI this month! No way!” Foolish… because then I see the posts from the design team and I start my wish list. That $70 soon turns into $100. Their designs are inspiring and each one sees the products in such a different way – it really sparks my creativity. And opens my wallet. And IT’S WORTH IT – EVERY PENNY! I have grown so much as a card maker and stamper thanks to these great products and this awesome group of inspiring gals! Thank you.

    rebecca g says:

    Wow! What a wonderful way to kick-off the Papertrey 5th Anniversary festivities! This is SO generous! ALL of the design team creations every single month simply blow me away with their creativity, and their ability to look at a stamp set (or die, or color combo, etc. etc. . . .) and see it in a new way. I ALWAYS learn something from each and every one of them. Thank you for showing and sharing with us your genius! You always amaze me, and it is very evident how hard you work as well as how much you enjoy doing what you do. Thank you, thank you!

Please know that all of your time, effort and sacrifices in producing your creations is more than appreciated…it’s longed for. Couldn’t keep up my excitement in making cards and memories if it wasn’t for all the examples and even the “openness” into your own lives on your blogs. You’re the best DT!!! Keep up the good work!! I’ve only been following you since June/July 2011…and I’m already blown away. Can’t imagine all I’ve missed the last 5 years…but woohoo for what I’m NOT going to miss from this point forward.

    Happy 5th Anniversary to you all at PTI. I have only recently come across your amazing company & the amazing,talented design team that you have. I am in awe when I look at the creations that each & every one make. I would be over the moon to say the least to win a wonderful prize of such amazing products. I’ve only been crafting for 2 years but without it I don’t think I could have gotten through every day. I have been registered disabled since a fall on ice back in 2009 & am waiting for a back opp. I can only look on it as a good thing as I would never had started crafting and come across such talented people such as yourselves to give me the inspiration & encouragment to craft & get through each day. Thank you all for your amazing designs & here’s to another 5 years. Congrats x

    Wow! What an exciting five years for Papertrey Ink.
    I remember when I first came across your web site in 2008, I felt like a kid in a candy store, with so many delicious treats to look at and try to emulate. I still feel like that starry-eyed child who each day loves to check the “teams” personal blogs and be WOWED all over again. Thank you to each of you for your dedicated, creative efforts that we your fan-based family love to enjoy.

    Amy Papale says:

    Where do I start? The design team has all had such an impact on me that I cannot even begin to explain. Each member is so talented that I draw inspiration from each one differently. It all depends on what kind of mood I am in as to which member influences me more at any given time. From homespun, to shabby, to modern they all have it covered! I appreciate all of their talents and enjoy looking at each of their projects. Thank you ALL for your inspiration!!

    Connie F. says:

    I received an error message when I hit post, and I’m not seeing it…so, here I go again. I LOVE PTI!! I can’t believe you are giving away all that product!! How awesome would it be to win!!!! My stamping and stamping confidence have improved 100-fold since finding PTI. During the sneak peaks, there is always something that I don’t think I need – doesn’t fit my style…but when I see how you, Nicole, and the Team use them in ways I never would’ve thought of…they turn into “must haves”. I love that each week I can learn (or revisit) a technique with MIM and look forward to each month’s release for the awesome inspiration that is posted. Thank you ladies for the GREAT JOB you do each and every month!!

    Cindy H. says:

    Yikes what an awesome prize!! PTI sure knows how to celebrate:) I love the PTI designers – *all* of them! They have shown such fabulous creations that even when I think “Oh, that can go on my wish list” they change my mind to “I NEED that now!” Nichole, I love the new Peeks and that bg. is already on my list of must haves. I can’t wait to see the rest and for you and the DT to enable me:)

    Chris Simon says:

    It’s always so much fun to learn what products the design team loves the best. Thanks, too, for sharing their special memories and giving us a glimpse inside the “family”.

    Jean Berling says:

    Congratulations to the entire Papertrey team! I have absolutely fallen in love with PTI products. I was a SU demonstrator until just recently, but consistently went for my PTI products first. I need more shelf space for my PTI stamps and need a fourth folder for my dies. Happy Anniversary to everyone at Papertrey Ink!!

  • 268

    Happy 5th Anniversary PTI! I am so grateful to have found this amazing company! I am super inspired each month and I am challenged to improve my stamping skills thanks to all of these fabulous ladies! I remember when my card making consisted of folding a piece of paper and adding a few stickers…I used to think I was SO creative back then ha ha. These ladies have encouraged me to explore my creativity in so many ways, thank you from the bottom of my crafty heart πŸ™‚

    I stumbled on Papertrey in December of 2009. I decided to make my own Christmas cards totally from scratch. Anyway, I have been a total PTI addict ever since! I adore everyone on the design team and have gained so much inspiration from each and every one of them. I can’t imagine how much work and dedication goes into the stamp designs, projects and posts, videos and everything that they do. I truly appreciate it and hope to make it to a PTI event sometime in the future.

    I want to say thank you to all the designers for all the hard work you put into each release. I am always amazed at the cards. I usually CASE the cards because I’m not creative and it’s fun to have the examples to follow. Thanks to Nichole for her inspiration and kindness that she extends to all the fans. And her designs are fabulous.

    Happy 5th Anniversary. I have been a customer for all five years and have loved every minute of it. It is the most exciting time of the month when my Papertrey package arrives. I am always in awe of the talent on the design team. It is very difficult to pick a favorite as they are all winners. I have to say that I love to visit the blog of Melissa Phillips. Her creations are amazing and I an enchanted by the stories of her little bean and what a loving and devoted mother she is. Her recipes are wonderful too.

    Dear Papertrey Ink team – First of all – warmest congratulations on your 5 year anniversary. I cannot express how much inspiration I have gained from the incredible resource sharing you unselfishly share every month. Meeting some of you at the CHA Supershow in 2010 was a true honor. I’m a big believer that we make time for what’s really important to us. Finding any time to papercraft is a true challenge for me, but every month for the past year + now, I and several friends gather on a Friday night once a month to make PTI projects. We each design a project (mine are often liberally copied form one of your posts) and have the supplies for everyone else to make 2-3 of our projects. We all leave feeling inspired, productive and with a longer list of must-have items on our PTI wish lists. I wish you all continued success and most sincerely thank you for all the ways you have positively impacted so many of our lives.

    Moi says:

    Happy 5th Anniversary. To each and everyone of you I must say a sincere thank you. Without your inspiration and incredible talent, which you so freely share with us, your admirers, we would be floundering in “stamp land”. And yes I truly feel that way. I know there are other designers out there but PTI raised the bar from the beginning. From customer service to all the behind the scenes people I salute you for a job WELL DONE. And PLEASE DO NOT EVER STOP. Thanks again and congrats.

    Terry M. says:

    Happy Birthday PTI-you all rock. You ladies never fail to inspire me. I must admit that I wishing the month away waiting for the “countdown”. I think what inspires me the most is the way all you ladies use the sets in so many unique and diiferent ways that I often am buying earlier sets on release day that I never thought I would buy along with the “I can’t live without” new.
    Thank you for 5 years of inspiration and many, many more!

    Happy 5th Anniversary PTI! The PTI design team is amazing! Every month I eagerly look forward to seeing their inspiring and amazing projects. And truly the whole PTI team is so nice – this was my impression after visiting the summer CHA booth 2 years ago. I was out of the country last year for Stamp-a-faire and so disappointed that I could not attend. I’m really really hoping there will be another one this year! Thank you to Nichole and the whole team for everything they do!

Everyone involved in this organization is a delight and so willing to share their expertise and talents. They don’t keep any secrets, or so it doesn’t seem to me.

    Janie C says:

    Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 5 years for PTI. I truly admire all of the DT, but I absolutely love Maile Belles and her simplistic yet elegant style. Although I love seeing and using embellishments on my projects, the most satisfying cards for me are the clean and simple ones with a dramatic impact. That is how I see all of Maile’s work. Abosolutely Wonderful!

  • 332
    Lynn Mason says:

    As a mom and full-time teacher, my time is often not my own. I start to get cranky when I don’t get much time to make cards, color with copics, or do other fun paper-crafting things. However, I have to say that I can get a good craft “fix” just by looking at the Design Teams’ creations. I am always amazed, inspired, (and sometimes, a week bit flabbergasted) by the beautiful creations that I see. I love the richness in the color combos and embellishments. I feel blessed everytime I get to spend a little time with their creations. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts!

  • 333
    Caren B says:

    Kim A. says:

    The PTI design team is beyond amazing with the inspiration they provide. I think I follow all their blogs — every week there are numerous “must try” projects. I love the way the same products can be used in different styles, from Melissa’s beautiful shabby-chic creations to Erin’s colorful graphic art. Congratulations on your first 5 years, Papertrey Ink. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

  • 335

    Wow – starting off with a seriously BANG! πŸ˜‰ So many fabulous, beautiful DT projects, it’s so hard to narrow down what kind of project to make. Thank you! to all these lovely DT ladies who provide so much wonderful inspiration month after month. I am always inspired when I come here and when I visit the DT blogs. It’s amazing what they are able to create and innovate. Love the new peeks today, and I am very excited to see what new products will be unveiled this month! πŸ˜‰

    Yay – it’s birthday month for Papertrey (& me!). And what a great way to start the festivities, by honoring all these incredible women who inspire us so much everyday. I have pages of card ideas I have collected from all of these ladies and I am constantly referring back to their blogs for more tips & inspiration. I can never say thanks enough for how much they have enriched my paper-crafting experiences over the last few years.

  • 339
    Kris E. says:

    Happy 5th! If it weren’t for the design team and Nichole’s amazing creativity, I would have more money for one thing but I also would be missing something in my life—my creative inking outlet! I will excitedly check out all the peeks each month and think I don’t need that stamp set, I don’t need that die. Ah, but then the design team so quickly changes my mind and I then truly NEED/Want pretty much anything they use! Thank you ladies for all your creative genius you share with us every month!

  • 340
    Linda Suarez says:

    Happy Anniversary! I am so looking forward to all the fun this month. This is the best design team anywhere. I have all of their blogs bookmarked and filed into a special folder so I can easily access them when I need some inspiration. Thanks for everything you do!

    Rita says:

    Happy 5th Anniversary PTI. The theme song from “To Sir with Love” started playing in my head as I thought about how to express my gratitude. Here’s a little tribute inspired by those lyrics:

    Those stampin’girl days, of fussy-cutting paper and inking rubber are gone,
    Even though I know they still live on and on,
    So how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to copics and more?
    It isn’t easy, but I’ll try,

    If you wanted the sky I would ink up the sky in letters, that would soar a thousand feet high,
    To PTI, with Love

    The time has come,
    For saying thanks and to let you know,
    You are treasured,
    To PTI, with Love

    I know that I am staying right here,
    For all the amazing stamps and dies
    For all the luscious paper and ink
    For unending inspiration
    For forum friends and fun

    Looking at all I have been given,
    What, what can I give you in return?

    If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start,
    But I, would rather you let me give my heart,
    To PTI, with Love

    Thank you PTI. Best wishes for the year ahead.

    I LOVE this company! I tell everyone I know about Papertrey Ink. I only use PTI cardstock for my cards. Also, Since joining Operation Write Home last year I have used my PTI stamps a lot more.

    Hi Nichole,
    Happy 5th Anniversary PTI!!!
    PTI perhaps has the most diversified DT in terms of style. Their creativity and inspiration is incredible, but I love how each month, when sets are introduced you can see the many different ways a stamps, dies and accessories can be used. There really is something for everyone’s different styles. You ladies are tremdendous!
    Nichole, I would love to know what some of your favorite things are too! (Wink!)

  • 351
    Judy says:

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! How exciting. I think I’d die if I won the Grand Prize. I’ve never won anything so that would probably give me a heart attack for sure. I have to say that Papertrey’s design team is the best in the market. I look at sights every day and there is no comparison. I don’t how Nicole got all of you together in one place but what a great job. You are all amazing.

I love all of the designers and every month I tell myself I can’t buy very much stuff but then I find myself wanting all the new stuff and some of the old stuff and end up spending way more than I had planned for. I would be in heaven if I won this prize package! Thanks for everything and I look forward to the next few days of excitement (and of course coming months too)!

    Happy 5th Anniversary PTI! I remember seeing Nichole at Memories in Bloom in Clarksville TN displaying only 2 stamp sets and her beautiful cards early 2007. I never would have dreamed, and I’m sure Julie, Jane, and Nichole would agree, the phenomenal growth and what a fantastic company PTI has become in the crafting industry. Today’s post was from the heart by the PTI team. It’s not all about the prizes. To me, it never is, but the personal teamwork behind the scenes and customer relations. The 3 owners, along with such a stellar DT has made PTI what it is today (as well as the customers on the board also inspiring me) and I, for one, enjoy my new goodies every single month inspired by the best. Every single release never ceases to amaze me of how cutting edge it is, perfectly coordinating with everything else, and overall just fun products to play with that have never-ending possibilities and discoveries along the way. That’s what true paper crafting is about, having fun, meeting fellow crafters, making friends, and inspiring each other.

    I feel like I have twelve adopted daughters (I hope I counted right)! Everyday I check to see what you all are doing. I am fairly new to paper crafting. Actually when PTI was at the CHA Summer Show in Orlando is when I fell in love with it. I walked into the booth and it was love at first sight. I wanted it all and over the years I have done a pretty good job of it. When I need inspiration I know where to go (The PTI blog). I have been so touched by so many of you. You are wonderful women who have shared your talent and your lives with us. From the bottom of my heart thank you!!

I continue to anticipate each month with that same excitement and always look forward to the blog posts up to each release!

    Linda Richmond says:

    Happy Anniversary PTI!!
    PTI is my “go to” for crafty inspiration. Every day, I cruise the DT blogs, just soaking in the wonderful designs they create. And Nicole, your tutorials have taken me from a scared stamper that didn’t even know how to ink up a stamp, to a card designer who hears, “I wouldn’t have even known this was home made if your stamp wasn’t on the back!” Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

    I absolutely LOVE seeing the projects that the fabulous design team comes up with. They LITERALLY are the deciding factor for me when it comes to what stamp sets to purchase. It’s even better when each project is totally different, as it helps me to “think outside the box”. (Although most of my cards are fairly straight forward…) I really like seeing baby cards because for some reason, my mind freezes up. πŸ™‚ So.. THANK YOU so much to the design team, you guys do a GREAT job!!

    Wow! 5 years already! Happy Anniversary PTI! After reading your post, the one thing that sticks in my mind is the longevity of your Design Team. PTI has avoided the whole “New” design team hype every 3, 6 or 12 months in favor of retaining talented and proven design team members. This has allowed PTI to maintain a classy image…one that has been firmly established not only by you, Nichole, but by the talented styles of your dt group. Kudos to you and all the DT who make PTI the incredible success it is today!

    The PTI Design Team is the best around! I’m so inspired and in awe of their talents! Each month I think, hmm, do I need that new product? And then I see some amazing creation by the Design Team and in my cart the item goes. We as customers are so lucky to have them. Happy 5th Anniversary PTI! The 5 years have gone by so quickly!

    The monthly releases and prize packages always astound me, but the prize package to kick off the 5th Anniversary release is beyond AMAZING!!! I have learned so much from each of the designers on the PTI team and really appreciate their different styles and willingness to pass on tips to other crafters. Each year seems to get better and better somehow and my PTI collection keeps growing. I really love the versatile selection of stamps, dies, beautiful felt and cardstock. I wish your company many many years of continued success. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Take care, and looking forward to new products to come this month.Happy 5!!!

    Kim G says:

    I have been with Papertrey Ink from the beginning and love it all!! Congratulations on 5 years in business!! The design team and of course, Nichole’s inspiration, is what leads me to buy each and every time. Debbie Olsen, Michelle Wooderson, Betsy Veldman are the first ones that send me over the top to buy something that I thought I didn’t need. Everyone on the design team is so unique in what they make, it is so fun to see each of their takes on the same stamp set that is being used. This is great place to learn and I have loved every minute I have spent pouring over what they have made, love that you put the full release and all the projects on for all day! Great sneak peaks for today by the way and a great prize package!!

    Kim Morrow says:

    I am thinking any one of us who wins this prize would probably scream for a week — or maybe a month. Not only would I love to use all the products in the list, but when I am browsing through all the designer’s blogs, you would actually have the products to make some of the things they design. I have only been into paper crafts for a little over a year and in that time I have had the privilege of worshiping this site and the wonderful designers. Thank you so much all of you for your creativeness and inspiration.

    Hoping I have time to make a project too … so inspired by all the amazing talent on the Design Team. You ladies rock! Many of your projects have sold me on a set I was on the fence about. Others so captured me that I had to recreate, and they say imitation is the highest form of flattery! You are all uber-talented and I so appreciate you sharing that talent with us every day.

    Happy Anniversary to Papertrey Ink! I have loved the creations of Nichole and the entire PTI team (past and present!) for 5 years. I am thankful to all of you, not only for the wonderful, innovative products, but also the never ending inspiration that comes along with the products. I especially love when I see something I’m pretty sure is not my style (I would know, right?) or something I don’t *need*, and then once I see what the design team does with it, bam. End.of.story. So, thank you PTI for an amazing 5 years and here’s wishing you many more to come!

    I just love seeing the different projects that the design team ladies come up with every month. Their ideas are often the reason that I purchase the sets/dies, etc. I feel so fortunate to have been introduced to these fabulous women whom I otherwise would not know of.

Thanks so much for giving me a creative outlet and for sharing all of your wonderful projects!

    Thanks to all of the designers – what a great variety of ideas!
    Melissa Phillips is a huge inspiration to me. Both as a mother and an artist. I have a precious only child as well – and it’s so nice to have affirmation that the joys and trials that come with my child are shared by someone who I admire.
    Her creations are so wonderful. Seeing her blog posts are one of the best parts of my day!

    Becky P. says:

    My favorite time of each month is the 10th through the 15th. I am awe inspired by the work of the DT. I have had so many “ah-ha” moments by perusing blogs, looking at their tutorials, etc. I truly think you have the best of the best on your DT. I was thrilled when I learned about your company in 2009 (nope, not here from the beginning) and I have grown so much as a stamper and a scrapbooker from everyone’s inspiration and ideas. It is always a learning experience when the DT talks about how they got to the finished projects. The Make it Monday series has helped me greatly in learning new techniques and making techniques not so scary. I am truly thankful for everyone’s hard work and inspiration, and I want you and the entire DT to know that you have made a significant impact on a woman in Northern California, and I am know you all will continue to do so.

    I have to say that Papertrey Ink is by far my FAVORITE company for all things stampy!!! I am totally addicted and when I look back over my orders I saw that I have been ordering every month, sometimes twice a month for about 2 years now! My paycheck is earmarked for 2 things…. bills and Papertrey goodies! All of the design team members have there place on my favorites bar and I visit each of their blogs daily (ok sometimes twice)….. The inspiration I get from these girls is immeasurable and I look forward to many more fun releases and creations! I actually look forward to the sneak peaks every month! My dream someday would be to join the design team but I could never do PTI justice like these wonderful girls! For now I will admire from afar and pray HARD to win that unbelievable prize package!
