5th Anniversary Day 5: New Papertrey Pinterest Boards & Stamp-a-faire 2012

Welcome back to Day 5 of our 5th Anniversary festivities!  I'm so glad to hear about your excitement and the fun you are having with all of the challenges!  First, let me share today's sneak peeks of some of the products that are coming up this release!

We have a huge new line of dies rolling out this month that allow you to create amazing interactive cards!  This sentiment set is full of arrows and other phrases specifically designed to coordinate with these interactive features.  However, it is versatile enough to have other applications as well.

This last set was actually cut from the sentiment set I peeked above.  There were so many great pairings for the word "You", I created an entire separate set that can coordinate with the new interactive dies as well as have other uses for other types of projects.

And now what you have all been waiting for, today's announcements and contest!  We are thrilled to announce that Papertrey Ink has now created and entire series of Pinterest boards to serve as a fantastic one stop shop for all your inspiration needs!


For those of you who may not be familiar with Pinterest, it is an amazing inspiration resource that can be applied to nearly any aspect of you life, especially paper crafting.  It is an organizational tool for links to things that are important to you.

Our Pinterest boards are a series of boards divided into project categories that can serve as an easy reference for you when you are looking for inspiration for a specific type of project

CLICK HERE to check out all of our new Pinterest Inspiration Boards!

So, if you are struggling to create a birthday card, you can stop by our Birthday Board and browse through the dozens and dozens of birthday creations that the team has designed.  Each photo is directly linked to the original blog post that it was showcased on.  There are boards for our Make It Monday video, scrapbook layouts, each of the major holidays and much, much more!

We just started the process of filling all of the boards, so there is still more to come.  We hope that you will find this resource very valuable during your creative time!  In honor of the new inspiration boards we have set up for you, we asked our team to find an inspirational Pinterest image and use it as a jumping point for a project.  You will love seeing how they used their inspiration as well as the amazing artwork they created.

Didn't the team put together some amazing eye candy today?  Just a fantastic amount of inspiration!  Now, I have one more announcement for you today before I sign-off…

Many of you may remember our Stamp-a-faire event that we held in Cincinnati last year.  It was truly an unforgettable event that holds a special place in the hearts of both the attendees and hosts.  After discussing the details of what to do for an event this year, we have opted to turn Stamp-a-faire into an online event so that EVERYONE can participate!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 21st, 2012 because you will definitely want to set this aside as a day for yourself to indulge in your favorite hobby!  More details about this online event will be made available as the date grows a bit nearer, but here is a brief run-down of what you can look forward to at Stamp-a-faire 2012!

  • A world-wide online event bringing Papertrey fans from around the globe together.
  • An exclusive tote bag full of Papertrey goodies, class kit supplies and more with online registration!
  • Limited Edition Stamp-a-faire stamp set included!
  • Videos, challenges, contests, tutorials & inspiration posted throughout the day by the Papertrey Team.
  • Enjoy festivities from the comfort of your own home or plan to meet with other Papertrey fans in your local area to participate together.
  • Stamp-a-faire t-shirts will be available for purchase at the Cafe Press store in advance for you to wear the day of the event to help unify all participants, no matter where in the world you are!  We'll have a special InLinkz list set up to see everyone around the world in their Stamp-a-fair gear!
  • Share photos and live videos of your projects and silly moments from your individual gatherings in a fun central location.
  • and much, much more!

This will prove to be a very fun event for everyone, no matter where they are.  We love the idea of being able to allow anyone to participate, no limits.  And there will be no overhead travel expenses for anyone to invest.  The day will be all about our mutual love of this hobby!  More details to come soon and we hope to see you there!

    I love Pinterest for all sorts of inspiration. In addition to paper crafting ideas, I have boards for home decor, gifts, packaging for gifts, crafty techniques and how-tos, and new recipes.

    It’s so much more useable to me than url bookmarks, so I’ve been weeding through my hundreds of bookmarks and pinning them :D.

  • 33

    I am interested in your stamp-a-faire. I haven’t gotten into Pinterest much but it looks interesting. The only thing I wish to see in types of cards that I didn’t see was for anniversary cards. I make a lot of them and just find it hard to find many examples.

  • 50
    Kathy W says:

    I have never been on Pinterest and am hoping links to the categories will be available through your blog or the main PTI website. It would be great to see themed cards together. The Stamp-a-faire looks amazing! And I’m very excited about what dies you have in store for this year.

    And to think this is only Day 5! Wow. Love the DT Pinterest projects. Stamp-A-Faire online sounds so fun, although I actually wouldn’t have minded the trip back east and to Cincy and then drive to my 2nd home in New York. I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting the DT at CHA Chicago 2010 so I got that out of my system. I love that you can still be a participant no matter where you are. Awesome challenge today and as always, thank you for everything and the generosity of the prizes. I’m so glad PTI had their own Pinterest boards now. Have a happy day everybody!

    Allison T. says:

    I am so excited about the new format of Stamp A Faire! I was one of the very lucky attendees of last year’s event and I absolutely loved it! I think an online event will be great fun too — especially if we can still get class materials and other supplies by preregistering! I appreciate that PTI is being SO inclusive with this event.

    I am looking forward to getting together with my mom and having a fun day together (taking the trip to Ohio with my mom was honestly the best part of Stamp-a-Faire for me!)

    I am already quite addicted to Pinterest. The problem is I can’t stop pinning long enough to go back and make something!!!! I tell a lie, I have made some of the recipes I’ve seen on there. Don’t you know it had to involve eating ;-). I’m thrilled that Stamp-A-Faire is opened up now to us all. We will be going on our summer hols a couple of days later so I stood no chance whatsoever of getting to the States this year for it. Thank you for thinking of the whole of the PTI community. You totally thought outside of the box :-). Thank you too for the opportunity to win some stamps. I have quite a few sets on my wish list since well, forever. Happy Anniversary!

    Such an exciting post. I am already following this awesome inspirational Pinterest board. Pinterest just rocks. I am so thrilled that Stamp-a-Faire is going online. Last year I missed out due to being sold out and this year I was planning on the 6 hour car ride no matter what, but now I can participate at home in Canada. Today’s giveaway is amazing. Thank you Papertrey for having such an incredible Anniversary celebration.

  • 231

    OMG!!! Papertrey is in full force with this 5th Anniversary Celebration-what fun you have been providing for us!

    I love pinterest too-what’s not to love, except the time I get lost in it-:)

    An online Stamp-A-Fair-ooohhh I can’t wait! I think I will have to plan an event here in Redding Ca., so we can all get together and enjoy!

    Thanks again PTI and the whole team!

    I had decided that I didn’t need Pinterest… They require that I use my FB or Twitter account to sign up, giving them access to all my information. Up until now, I was OK with my decision, but after following your link… well, let’s just say that I am going to have to make an exception! What an amazing amount of beauty and ideas!!!! I love how I can see everything at once, and then decide what I want to see in more detail.

    see mary stamp says:

    So – I have the article on Pinterest from this week’s Sunday paper torn out and sitting on my coffee table waiting for me to read it. Besides all of the papercrafting blogs talking about Pinterest, my quilting buddies have started talking about it. Guess it’s time I take the plunge. It will be nice to have all of the different PTI Boards to look at. Thanks so much for putting those together.

    The new Stamp-A-Faire format sounds fun – although I’m sorry to hear we won’t have the chance to craft in-person with the PTI crew. This is a much better way for more people to participate (in an affordable way.)

    Sue in Grapevine says:

    I love Pinterest & can’t wait to go browse the PTI boards! For me it has eliminated the “Where was that really cute card w/the flowers?” moment when I want to make something.
    I loved Stamp-a-Faire in person, but will make the best of the online format by getting a local gathering going.

  • 306

    You know, I think I’m one of the lone holdouts on Pinterest. Maybe it’s because I don’t use inspiration/challenges/sketches to create, I’m not sure. But I do enjoy seeing things on blogs when they have pretty pictures from Pinterest. Maybe now with the PTI area, I’ll have to check it out more πŸ˜‰

    What a day of fantastic announcements! Your Pinterest boards look fabulous. I haven’t jumped onto the Pinterest bandwagon yet and this may just be the nudge I need. Your Stamp-a-faire announcement is a truly welcome one – no travel expenses! The downside, of course, is that we won’t get to meet you and the DT. If I hold a Stamp-a-faire event that day, will you come stamp with us instead?? LOL! Oh, and before I forget, thanks for the opportunity to win another GREAT prize!

    What a wonderful inspirational tool. I am new to pinterest but having all those cards in one place will make finding a card to spark my creativity so much easier. Card making has taken such great strides since I started card making in 1991. The resources available as well as supplies online make card making a joy. TFS Ann Lind

    Marking my calendar for my husband to be off July 21st so he can watch the kids that day. And order pizza. No mommy responsibilities that day – well, we can all dream right? As for Pinterest, I’ve just sort of been a lurker. But, I’m super excited for PTI boards!! I recently have been trying to decide what to use some Christmas money on (yeah, don’t think that will be a problem now with this release) and was trying to look at some older stamp sets, and was having a hard-ish time on the gallery. This will be so much easier PLUS I can share it easier. Now, if the IRS would just accept stamp purchases as a tax write off…

  • 348
    Judy says:

    I love the idea of the Papertrey Pinterest inspiration boards! I can’t wait to see all the dies and stamps for this month!!

  • 349

    Ohh i’ve only been Pinterest -ing from the fringes. Now i’m afraid i’ll be jumping in head first!! πŸ™‚

    I am also VERY excited for the virtual Stamp-a-faire. My friends and I just couldn’t coordinate it last year. Now we can all get together for our own local Stamp-a-farie! Yipee!!!

    Pinterest is both a blessing and a curse. It is a wonderful file system and inspirational launching pad, but soaks up much more time than anyone probably has to spare. So glad PTI has joined the fun.

  • 353

    Wow–I love Pinterest, and am thrilled that PTI will be using pinterest to showcase their creations. It is the best way for me to see all the DT’s beautiful projects to inspire me to create my own. And, thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous prize today.

    Good Grief! With all the hype about pinterest lately, I still had not found the time to “get started” on that site. But those days are over. You will be my first stop on pinterest! Now, I can tell all my friends who are already on pinterest to check you out! YIPEE!!!!!!

    I can’t believe I signed on to Pinterest a couple of weeks ago, for once I’m were I should be at the right time. PTI board looks fabulous, can’t wait to go there for even more inspiration.
    The new stamps look great and of course the prizes for today are “over the top” again.

    I am sooo addicted to Pinterest – I check in a few times a day and still can’t see all the wonderfulness that’s there! Also think that Stamp-a-Faire online sounds like an awesome idea!

    Donna says:

    I could not be more thrilled about the new PTI Pinterest boards. I am not super creative; most of my cards are variations on things I see. One reason I love PTI so much is the plethora of ideas provided by the uber talented DT and PTI customers. Having everything in one place is fantastic. I can tell that I am going to ‘need” alot more PTI products in the future. LOL!

    Amber Daigre says:

    I am definitely addicted to Pinterest and PTI. Heck I’m addicted to COLOR and I get my fair dosage and more with both! The eye candy is a feast for the hunger pangs. I love the inspiration both provide. Sometimes it’s so overwhelming just looking at all the wonderful stamps, dies, paper, ink, embellishments, creations, etc., etc., etc. that it’s hard to break away, even to do just the thing that brings me joy, creating!!! Thank you for the joy!!!

    I am so flipping excited about you being on Pinterest. It’s the merging of two of my favorite sites. What a great way to share inspirations and showcase creations. I loved the example that the team created today. Maile’s was my favorite. I have been tryign to use that exact paper in a card as well. Thanks Maile for jumping starting me out of my rut!

    Judy says:

    I became aware of Pinterest through the design team. I have become addicted to it. Such ideas. I am THRILLED about the online Stamp-a-Faire event. There was no way I could make the last one so this is perfect. I’m hoping that you can sign up and if you can’t make it that day, you can access it on another day. Please do that for us. I think my favorite Pinterest used with the design team was Melissa’s. I will be making something from that one for sure.

    MelTallman says:

    I love Pintrerest and often find myself playing “I spy PTI”. I’ve been following a few ladies that clearly have a love for PTI as I do. It’s been so nice to be able to go on for inspiration. But now you’ve just made it SOOOO much better. I’m in heaven now. Thanks

    I think the concept of Pinterest is fantastic!! One place to go to for all sorts of inspiration and ideas to get the creative juices flowing. I’m very new to Pinterest, but I’ve been hearing so much about it that I’m definitely going to have to start looking more into it. And the online version of the Stamp-a-faire event is too good to be true!! What a wonderful idea to provide so many more people the ability to participate from their own homes.

  • 401
    Joybells says:

    I loooove the fact that PTI is now on Pinterest. I had resisted being a part of that world but now that has all changed! In fact I just registered and will be definitely perusing the PTI boards. And to be an on-line participant in Stamp-a-Faire just adds “rich icing” to the already “sweet cake”!

    I am somewhat new to Pinterest, but will certainly start following all the Papertrey boards. It is so fun to browse the site for a little bit before sitting down to start a project. And I am very happy that I can join in the Stamp-a-fair event this year!

  • 403
    Cynthia B says:

    I love that you have a Pinterest board. I actually discovered it before today and have already started following. Each of the members of the design team are a great source of inspiration so it’s great to have all their projects categorized in one location. Thanks!

    The pinterest boards are amazing. SO useful. I’m very excited about them. And I love seeing how the designers can turn such “random” things into inspiration. I loved the idea of actually going somewhere for a stamp-a-faire but knew I probably would never actually be able to attend…it’s hard to leave babies at home. So I’m looking forward to being able to participate online. Thanks!

  • 434

    This is one of the best anniversary announcements ever! I ADORE Pinterest and I am so looking forward to following Papertrey! Over the years, I’ve save so many inspirational photos yet I use so few because they are so hard to search. I’m thrilled that pinning makes it so easy! And I’m super stoked about Stamp-a-faire! I was so sad that I couldn’t participate last year and now I can! Yeah! And I love interactive cards so I am tickled pink about the new dies! I hope the time until the 15th goes by quickly!!

  • 435

    Love the idea of the Pinterest Boards. Looking forward to the new interactive dies.

    Angela NJ says:

    Oh no – I think PTI will push me over the Pinterest edge. I’ve resisted this site for so long because I’m afraid I will never leave my computer. I just tell myself that I already get plenty of inspiration from the few crafty blogs I read. Then I read Erin’s blog today and saw her “fun things for kids” board, and it may now be time to face my fear. The thought of so much PTI goodness in one spot is quite alluring.
    As for the Stamp A Faire announcement, I’m so excited it will be online. I’ve marked my calendar for the big event – thank you for making this decision, and thank you for so much fun this week.

  • 437

    I especially like the cards shown above and the Pinterest inspiration behind them!

    The variety of cards/ideas in each Pinterest board will be an inspiration for my own creativity.

    An online class with supplies sounds like a lot of Fun

    Kelle Williams says:

    I am very excited about the new Pinterest inspiration boards! I find that I do so much more creating when I have solid inspiration to work off of. At the end of a chaotic work week, I don’t have much mental juice left for fresh, new ideas. I want to get inky and create something so it works perfectly for me to take some saved inspiration and turn it into a quick project. I haven’t used Pinterest much, but I have a new reason to dive into it headfirst! I currently have an iPad full of bookmarked links and pictures that I use for inspiration. Thank God for the advances of technology!

    I am overwhelmed with all of the great STUFF this month! Pinterist is a Fabulous Idea – I am constantly searching blog after blog for ideas and this will speed that search significantly!!! annnnd my breath CAUGHT at the Stamp-A-Faire announcement! Can’t WAIT! I attended last year and it was so much fun …except that the airline sent my luggage on another (later) plane, and I didn’t have any supplies until so late in the afternoon it was a moot point! Luckily my table of (new) friends ALL pitched in and helped me out! I was absolutely THRILLED to meet Nichole and all the Design Team members that attended!

    so excited about the sneaks…

    And I’m so excited about Stamp A Faire!
    I admit some disappointment over not having a central place for it…
    I don’t have crafty friends close by and was hoping to meet so many of my online friends…
    but I’m also excited that it’s online in case something happens last minute and I wouldn’t be able to attend…
    so I’m good either way!
    And somehow…
    going to still try and meet some of these crafty friends!
    Either here…or I’ll travel! πŸ™‚
    It’s all good!
    Now just waiting for more details! πŸ˜‰

  • 469
    Margaret says:

    I think Pinterest is a great idea. I would love to see something set up around the different stamp sets similar to what splitcoast does for the Stampin Up products. Then everyone could share the projects they have made with your stamp sets. I love seeing what others have done with the stamp sets I already have and also seeing what others have done with stamp sets I’m considering purchasing.

    Hello PTI, I have discovered Pinterest within the last couple of months and must say I now love the idea of not losing the ideas I found. I like the PTI site too. Already following too.

    Last year I read a lot about the Stamp-a-Fair and how awesome the experience was to all attendees. Opening this opportunity world-wide is extraordinary. I already marked my calendar, and will make plans “to attend”. Thanks for thinking in all of us who wish to go, but were not able to afford the time or expenses involved.

I’ve never been on interest but if it’s as addicting as Facebook, then I’m in trouble! THANKS again for the chance to win!

    Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of time to spend on the internet, so Pinterest doesn’t get much of my time;0)
    The idea of a online Stampafaire has me pretty excited though…I’ve already circled the date on my calendar!!!
    Thanks for the chance to win 5 new PTI stamp sets.

    I have heard of Pinterest but had no idea what it was really about until I clicked on Nichole’s link in today’s post. How cool! I will definitely use this resource. There are certainly days when my creativity is running on empty. Having a resource like this is fabulous! I am super-excited about the on-line stamp-a-faire. I was so disappointed to miss it last year. It will be so exciting to be able to participate this year. I’ve already marked July 21st in my daytimer.

    Ellen Mangione says:

    You all have been really busy! I can’t believe all the changes you are making, and all for the good. Was looking forward to going back to Cincinnati for Stamp-A-Faire, but I understand the idea of making it on-line so that more can participate. I’ll just be watching for a group meet up in the area to join in so we can get the excitement of others. Love Pinterest! So many ideas out there and the creativity is so limitless!

    Love the pininterest boards – had found some early – great to have them all in one spot! I also love the idea of an online SAF – looking forward to hearing the details in the coming months! Papertrey Ink has a great anniversary month- makes the blues of winter not seem so blue with all the fun challenges and new inspiration. Thank you!

    I just started using Pinterest a couple weeks ago – it’s great that PTI has Pinterest boards! I will definitely be following them all. My only concern is that I’ll spend more time admiring all the creations on there and not so much time crafting…!

  • 577

    The PTI Pinterest boards look fabulous!! So much wonderful inspiration all in one spot. Love it! πŸ˜‰ I am thrilled that the Stamp-A-Faire will be an online event, so bummed not to have been able to attend the live event last Summer. Looking forward to what a fun event this will be. And I am LOVING the DT samples of turning an inspiration photo into a tangible thing of beauty. Can’t wait to play along. πŸ˜‰

    Heather Mills says:

    I have not yet taken the plunge and checked out Pinterest. I have resisted (I think one of your designers mentioned that she had too), but I guess I will have to go see what the hoopla is all about. I’m afraid I might never come back out. I’m all about being inspired by everything. And the stamp-a-faire sounds like lots of fun. Can’t wait to hear more about it. And I am dying to see all the new releases.

Thanks for all the work that goes into this resource! I really loved the gracious vases take that Lisa showcased; WOW!! Simply elegant!

  • 599
    stampyblock says:

    Okay, let me say that I have considered pinterest, I have an account but have done nothing with it. Secretly, I was a little afraid that I could loose myself in it (like a whole day) because I have heard things and the design team seems to agree. So, with today’s news I went on pinterest, named my boards, looked around at the inspiration from the design team. And then got sucked in, I have already lost 3hrs+. OH NO, I AM IN LOVE! Thank you (I think!;-) Something else I love is the stamp a faire online, it is 3 days before my bday so I think a big stamping weekend will have to be planned. YA!!!!!!!!!

  • 606
    colleen k says:

    ok, so now I think you should have given us an extra day or two to create our cards because I have just spent entirely way too much time absorbed in Pinterest! I am going to try to pull myself away from the computer now but wanted to comment here to let you know I think your boards are AWESOME!

  • 607

    PTI and Pinterest-the perfect match. Now everything in one place. This has been a great anniversary celebration and I love the directions that I see PTI going. This will be another terrific year for this company. Congratulations

    Betty says:

    Thanks for rekindling my interest in Pinterest – have been a member for awhile but haven’t done much with it. Love the idea of online stamp-a-faire – it’s on my calendar – must admit i was saving for a trip to it this summer – oh well, i’ll just spend the $$ on more stamps instead of airfare!

  • 609
    KathleenA says:

    I noticed Nichole pinning lots and lots of things recently, and was wondering if there would be an announcement. I have been following them, as well as most of the design team for a few weeks now! I LOVE pinterest. So much inspiration for everything! While I am happy that everyone will be able to participate in Stamp-a-faire this year without having to travel, I must admit that I was planning on going this year if you had it and was looking forward to meeting some of the design team in person. Perhaps there will be some other opportunity (hint, hint). In the meantime, perhaps some of my stamping buddies will all get together and have our own stamp-a-faire that day, participating online, but together! Fun!

  • 610
    Elaine Allen says:

    Stamp-a-Faire? Online? Oh Yes – count me in! What an awesome idea! Just need to put money away for it – LOL, cause I know I will be spending. And more dies – bring them on! I love Papertrey Ink dies! I’ve heard of Pintrest, but didn’t really know what is was. Now I’ve got something to look at.

    Pinterest, who doesn’t love it?! Have already been following Papertrey and love the inspiration!

    Karen Walker says:

    I love Pinterest and your inspiration boards are fabulous. I was trying to dig through the DT gallery a few days ago looking for something, and it took quite awhile. Now I can zip through all the inspirational cards by theme, and that alone, will save a lot of time. An online event sounds like great fun, and I’ve already saved the date on my calendar!

  • 617
    Martha D says:

    Another reason to spend more time on Pinterest. I love the idea of an on-line Stamp-a-fair. I can’t travel that time of year, so excited to be able to take part this year.

  • 621
    Sharon D says:

    Ack! I’ve been resisting Pinterest, because the last thing I need is another online black hole where I will spend more time–same reason I’ve been resisting Facebook–but you might have just pushed me over the edge. It would be so convenient to click on a PTI Birthday board, for example. Thanks for the chance to win five sets–that would be awesome!

    Emily Keaton says:

    I love all the different ideas I see folks come up with from Pinterest. Great ideas to be had!! At one point I rec’d an invitation to join Pinterest and was so excited to do so–until I went to sign up and the only option was to do so using a Facebook login. I don’t “do” Facebook, so that was that. I’ll just have to live vicariously and be inspired by others’ Pinterest finds that they post on their blogs.

  • 646

    Looking forward to checking out Pinterest entries. Must admit I’m bummed Stamp-a-faire is online instead of live. Went last year with a group and we’ve been planning since then to go again. It was a wonderful time of crafting and we made some great memories. Would PTI consider doing online and live in the future? Hint, hint.
