Stamp-a-faire Closing Ceremony

By July 21, 2012Stamp-a-faire

Light-out
All good things have to come to a close and this post is our official "wrap-up" for the night.  We hope that all of you have enjoyed the festivities today!  

Don't forget!  You have until Monday, noon EST to enter all the challenges!  So feel free to revisit all the content we have shared today and create some more projects tomorrow!

We wanted to give all of you another opportunity to share your day with other stampers from around the world. Below you will find a Farewell InLinkz List that you can add to if you like.  This allows customers to share projects they might of made that did not fit into a challenge or "departure" pics, with groups or individuals holding all of the projects they made that day, etc… We can't wait to see more of the fun you had!

The entire team and I also want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for participating in this new online event.  It wouldn't have been nearly as successful without your participation, and all of us our grateful that you chose to spend the day with us.  Here is a little farewell from all of us to you…

Thank you again for joining us!  We leave you with the final Farewell InLinkz List!

We wanted to give all of you another opportunity to share your day with other stampers from around the world. Below you will find a Farewell InLinkz List that you can add to if you like.  You can share extra projects, "departure" pics, your group holding all of their creations, you in your studio with that messy craft desk, or whatever else you want to share!  We would also just love to hear about all of  your fun in the comments section!  We will be giving away two $25 PTI gift certificates!  One for an InLinkz post and one for a comment!

    I just wanted to take a minute and thank everyone @ PTI for the wonderful day that you have given to so many. I have pulled out sets that I have had for some time, that have never seen ink and used them today! πŸ™‚ I have used new techniques and hope to try more as the links aren’t going away, what a wealth of information. Thank you so much!

    Oh so happy and oh so tired πŸ™‚ What a great day. I joined you from three different places today so I left a HUGE mess in my wake. I still have lots I want to make but am very happy with all that I learned and tried. Tomorrow I find the camera and will post my projects. Good night all. Looking forward to next year’s camp.

    Thank you so much for putting on today’s event. I can’t imagine how much time and effort went into this; all of the activities, sample projects, video tutorials, and forum chats were wondeful. It will take me days to go through all of it; so hard to choose just one designer idea to follow; they were all incredible. I am most appreciative to all. Thanks, PTI!

    Jill Norwood says:

    This has been such a wonderful event! You all put a lot of creativity and inspiration into it and it has been such fun! I am hoping to get a few more cards made before Monday but even if I don’t the information is on the blog to be referred to in the future. I loved all the videos and being able to pause them while I was working on the exact technique you were showing and then re-start it as I continued my project. Thanks so much to the design team and entire PTI staff – life is busy and I so appreciate the extra effort you all went to for us! :)Jill / Seattle, WA

    Bonnie T says:

    This was SO MUCH fun!!! I made more cards than I’m ever used to making in one day! Being on the West Coast, I wasn’t about to get up at 4am (I’m a late sleeper ;)), but once I got up & going, it was a blast. I even missed being able to post my morning make & take because I got so involved in (“catching up” – HAHA, right…) all the other projects – but I love how pretty it looks! I’m off to make even more since I still haven’t caught up yet… πŸ˜‰ But before I go, I just wanted to say:

    THANK YOU, LADIES, SO SO MUCH for all your hard work behind the scenes in getting this all together and then the smooth execution of it all – you are all such talented & amazing crafters & having to come up with all these events on top of what you already have going on…well, all I can say is I’m in awe & extremely grateful to each & every one of you for all your hard work & talent!!!

    Thank you for putting together such a wonderful event! I am exhausted, and haven’t even finished watching all of the videos. I have learned so many new techniques today and have been truly inspired. Nichole and DT, thank you again for all of your hard work! I had a lot of fun and hope that we can do this again next year.

  • 18

    I was stamping solo today but it was so much fun to see all the forum chit.chat and participate in a couple of the challenges! Thanks again for all of your hard work! So many inspiring posts today. Its so cool to see the variations in projects amongst everyone…cant wait until I have time to go back and watch some of the videos that I skipped today!

    Sheri Elmont says:

    Thank-you! Thank-you! To all you gals who worked so hard to give us this day. I got a late start but am going to catch up. Just finishing my mini book. I think I’m done for the night. My dog rolled in the dirt so needs a bath. I think it was a ploy for attention, she must be desperate. I pulled out some sets I hadn’t used yet that I’ve had for awhile. Had a great time and am going to finish up tomorrow. Signing off from Portland, OR.

    I wanted to say I had an awesome time!! When my husband came home from a bike ride earlier today he said I had covered every flat surface in the house with my card making stuff. Well honey, you just have to deal with it for the day, cause I’m in the middle of creating Papertrey greatness. Thank you all for this fun day at camp.

    It’s been a busy day but when I’ve had time today, I’ve popped in to monitor all of the Stamp-a-Faire happenings. I’m looking forward to watching all of the video tutorials and catching up with everything I might have missed. Hope everyone who participated had a great time!

  • 26

    Thanks Nicole and design team for a great “firt online Stamp A Faire” It was truly inspiring. While I have not as yet entered all challenges what I have done has been fun and I used new ideas that I had never done before. You girls sure did a great job. Thank you for all your hard work. I look forward to revisiting the videos and designs when under no pressure.

    Thank you all! I am amazed at all the planning and work that went into making today’s event such a special occasion. Even though I was alone, it was nice to be a part of something so much bigger than me. It is touching how creating is a universal language. Thank you, PTI team. You are amazing!

    Kris says:

    It was a lovely day. It was great to make cards at home with my supplies surrounding me…especially to be done at a reasonable hour and pacing myself on my own time. My crafting buddy LuAnn and I were in the late group on that first cruise and being rather new back then to this creative outlet, we were making projects past midnight (and sometimes beyond)! Thanks to all who worked so hard to put this all together. You are loved!

    This Stamp-A-Faire has be Fantabulously Awesome! I had no idea what was in store, but all the videos, projects and inspirational ideas…WOW. One Day is just not enough. Can’t wait to next year, I’ll have to round up a team so we can have more fun. Everyone is soooo talented. I have certainly taken away a whole lot from this. See ya next time For Sure! Smooches…

    I had such a fun day! I especially loved hearing from people all across the country and all around the world. It just really made me feel like a small part of a big happy thing.

    Leigh Penner says:

    Well, my day didn’t go exactly as planned, as my friend who was suppose to join me wasn’t feeling well, so she never came. I ended up stamping solo for most of the day, except when I was helping my daughter with some crafty projects of her own. πŸ™‚
    I got three cards done and a mini-album (which took me forever, but I’m really happy with it!) I’m hoping to finish up the challenges tomorrow and on Monday!
    Thanks for all the fabulous challenges and the great time!

    StephH says:

    Thank you Nichole and the entire design team. The quanity and quality of your work is evident in all of these beautiful projects and tutorials. I’ve had a wonderful day dedicated to crafting and learning. There is so much to accomplish before the deadline, will not be able to earn all my badges unfortunately. But will definitely be referring back to many of these videos for review! Thank you again!

  • 38
    Kemma says:

    Wow what a long day! Made a lot of great cards, wish I could have used a lot more of my kit, but look forward to being able to make other projects later. I got something for every one submitted. My favorite projects of the day had to do with the new stamp set, I think it will become another favorite.

    Although I was not able to participate like I planned in today’s projects, I was able to watch several of the videos throughout the day. I have to say I have learned so much from the Papertrey Team. You have all inspired me and I can’t wait try these new techniques. It was fun to visit some blogs and see the comments from the team. That was such a personal touch that made it that much more special. Thank you so much for putting this entire day together and making it available to everyone.

    Thank you, PTI, for a fabulous day! The things I learned will continue to inspire me for weeks to come. The level of professionalism that went into making this a top-notch event was very impressive. Everything you do is done exceptionally well, and I appreciated all of the time and effort that went into creating such a great experience for us. The videos were so helpful, as were the supply lists provided prior to today’s opening events. THANK YOU, everyone, for your generous sharing of your talents. PTI rocks!

    Elise McKinney says:

    Thank You for giving us this wonderful day to enjoy more creative ideas from the DT at Papertrey Ink. We learned new techniques in between eating chocolates! The day flew by and we didn’t even do all the things you presented. But, we will be going back to finish those projects that piqued our interest. What a great
    Stamp A Faire!

  • 50

    I had fun while I was able to create. I had to go out tonight and was an hour (gasp!) late because I didn’t want to stop stamping. Hubby gently pried me away from my desk so I’ll have to finish tomorrow. I’d much rather do this in person some year but as I have a 7 month old and no $, this was better this year. I look forward to many more awesome stamping events from PTI whether in person or online. Thanks!

    Well – the Cotswold Stampers didn’t make it to the end – at our age we didn’t have the stamina to stay up until 4am – but we had such fun! Many thanks for making it on line this year as we saved a bunch not having to fly over the pond!More money to spend on more PTI πŸ™‚

    Lee Cockrum says:

    Thanks for working so hard to provide all the great videos and tutorials. It was great fun for me to get out and meat some fabulous people, and do a little crafting. I did much more eating and socializing than crafting, but it was fun, so I’m happy!

    Stamp-a-faire was so much fun! I had a great day, made 5 cards and learned lots of new techniques! The day went by so fast and I was exhausted by the end of the event. A big thanks to Nichole and Team – what a wonderful, fun-filled event!

Loved all the ideas and I can’t wait to get my order to play with the new set offered with the stamp faire. Please know that your hard work hasn’t been appreciated! Kudos to the team and to all that played along.

  • 69
    Mindy says:

    I can honestly say that is one of the most fun days I’ve had in a long time! I haven’t played in my craft room for quite a long time due to a huge project at work. Seems like I spend the majority of my days off at work so when I’m actually home, I’m frantically trying to catch up on the home front or just too exhausted to even think about starting something crafty. So, yesterday, spending the day shut away in my craft room with all of the videos and amazing inspiration, was complete heaven! I had forgotten how much I really enjoy playing with paper & ink & all of the other goodies. Now my mind is filled with so many ideas & I hope I can work on some more of them today! Thanks so much for all of the hard work that went into preparing for such a great day!

    What an amazing event πŸ˜€
    I only managed two challenges – take far too long and was also hostess so spent a lot of time “hosting” my little group of friends – hope to catch up a bit today πŸ™‚

    THANK YOU, PTI!!! Absolutely fantastic chain of challenges – Three Cheers..Hip hip Hooray!

  • 76

    Thanks so much for all the work you all put into this event! Although I’m still disappointed that you’re not at CHA anymore (that’s where I first heard about you two years ago and had no idea the women checking us out were actually your ultra talented designers! but maybe that’s a good thing because then I would have been all nervous and such!) I’m happy that this year you’ve done an online event so everyone can participate. Love the limited supplies challenge, and the tie-dye technique totally ROCKS!

    I had a great time! Thanks for this opportunity to exercise my crafting muscles and learn new skills. I had a blast, and hope to do it again. Plus, from a business viewpoint, I spent more $ getting ready for this on PTI supplies than I have on all my crafting this year πŸ˜‰

    From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!! I have rarely been so happy about being so tired! What a wonderful day of fun, crafting, videos, blogging, laughter and s’mores! You, Nicole, and the PTI Design Team’s wit, wisdom and talent know no bounds. It was a day beyond description. You “created a place” where everyone could participate on their own terms–Way to Go!

    Lisa Harris says:

    Throughout this Stamp-a-Faire weekend I have had such an adventurous, funny, disastrous, creative and wonderful time all balled into one. Despite this weekend’s unexpected turn of events, this crafty turtle has had a great time and I’ll remember every minute of it (those of you who have read my forum posts will understand why lol). Thanks to everyone for your prayers, support and shared laughter. Even though I could only hear my own it was nice to know it was echoing throughout the global PTI community.
    I’ve still got lots of projects left to complete, most of which will have to wait for me to return home, but I will take with me the skills and the experience which was unforgettable. Thanks everyone.

    Thanks so much to the team for a great day full of videos & inspiration. I enjoyed following along from my craft room down here in New Zealand. Didn’t get quite as many of the challenges done as I’d hoped (does that mean I have to send my badges back!??!) due to the different time zones & having to sleep through half of your “day”, but I’ve taken away lots of ideas for future crafty projects.

    I had so much fun. It was definately worth waking up at 3 am here in Washington state. I hope it was successful enough that Nicole will consider another one – wouldn’t it be fun sometime in early Nov. with a Christmas theme. Awesome creations team members. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Oh, this was soooo much fun!! I finished the Stamp-a-faire on Sunday, ’cause it was waaaay past bedtime yesterday when I stopped, hi hi, and the day was only halfway with you! Thanks for adding the Sunday to join in for the challenges and thanks for making this an online event! This way I could also join in from the Netherlands and I loved it!!! Thank you all so much!!!
    Hugs, Wendy

    Want to say THANK YOU to the PTI team for hosting this virtual event for all of your fans and customers! I wasn’t able to participate on Saturday, but I am catching up today. Love that we will be able to go back to these posts for inspiration!

    Thank you so much for all the hard work that went into putting on Stamp A Faire. I was lucky enough to spend the day with two very special gals who I met last year on our very own PTI forum. They all traveled to my house in San Diego, and we spent the day eating, watching videos, laughing, and even a bit of crafting.

    Thank you for the no stress day. The challenges were great as they gave me direction without the “I want to work on this, but should work on that” debate. Of course, now my room is messy again…

    I’ve never been this excited for an online event in my life! I was skeptical that I would enjoy an online event after having had the privilege of attending SAF last year, but I have to say you ladies have outdone yourselves, right down to the last little detail. I loved the camp theme with all the coordinating theme goodies. I hope SAF continues for many more years to come! A big thanks to ALL of you from Indiana!!!

    This has been such an awesome experience! I enjoyed myself a lot. Thanks to Nichole and DT for making so much effort in all of this. THANKS!!
    As I’m in a different timezone, CET, it was impossible to get everything done. Hope to get more creative tomorrow πŸ™‚
    Thanks again and can’t wait till next year *hint* πŸ™‚

    What a great day of inspiration. I didn’t get to join in as much as I wanted to. I will be watching videos and trying new techniques over the next few days. Thank you PTI and the design team for all of your hard work. I’m so glad you did this online this year so all of us can participate.

  • 111

    Wow! What a variety of challenges. Definitely not enough time to try them all today, but definitely will be referring back to these tutorials in the future. Thank you for all your hard work in orchestrating this event!

    Wow, it looks like everyone had so much fun.
    You and the design team came up such great techniques and tutorials. I am looking forward to eventually trying all of them.

    PTI did a great job putting this together. Even those of us who didn’t order the kits or actually participate in real time because of other commitments can still try out these techniques at a later time. Thanks for all the free postings.

    I wish I could have spent the whole day stamping, but I only got a few minutes to make one card. I will be coming back to these posts over the next few weeks and enjoying all of the videos and inspiration as a get a moment here and there. From what I’ve seen so far, I’m SO excited!!!

    Amy G. says:

    This event became an almost 2 day event for me. What a fun way to spend the weekend. And now I can spend the next week cleaning up the mess I made. It was fun earning all of my badges. Now if I could just find them buried under the mess on my desk… Thanks for everything!

    this was such a fun weekend! Yesterday was full on in the studio. I really broke in the new room and it passed the test! Lots of counter space and all my supplies at hand! I love looking at all my projects on display πŸ™‚ Thanks for all your hard work and inspiration! It was so fun to hang out with the DT and PTI fans! Woohoo! Group hug!

    Shawn Wenrich says:

    What an awesome event! While I haven’t watched all of the videos yet I did create a military card inspired by one of Nichole’s designs so I feel like I was still involved this weekend. I read a post on Facebook about an AZ marine that will be hospitalized for 6 months recovering until he can come home. Really got me moving to create something for him that I can get in the mail tomorrow. Thank you so much Papertrey for all that you do for us!

    I had so much with the rest of the N. Texas girls! We ate, laughed, borrowed each other’s dies and stamps, bought/swapped/shared our stash, and did door prizes. So worth the hour plus drive with all the construction and getting lost. lol…

    Thanks for hosting such a fabulous event!

    WOW ~ this Summer Camp was the best. From the photos, the videos, the blog posts, the Forum, the techniques, the challenges, Nichole & the Design Team to the Closing Ceremony, it was first rate. You gals really had a lot of prepping to do for this, and it is so appreciated. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to do all the challenges but so want to play with shaving cream and try Nichole’s technique. Can’t wait to have time later to look at all the links and review whatever I might have missed. Thank you so much, PTI, for everything plus the chances to win gift certificates! Obviously, I need to shop again after just placing my Saturday order. : )

    Thanks so much for puting together such a great event! You certainly invested an enormous ammount of work onto it and it showed. The inspiration and techniques have been amazing! I really enjoyed this two days, although I would have loved it even more if I had some craty friends around to share. Maybe next year I can organise a Spanish branch of SAF campers πŸ˜€

    A big, big, BIG thank you from me and my friend Anna. You’ve kept us entertained and crafting all weekend. I’ve made some fabulous new friends and might even be travelling to Canada for next years SAF. I mean she may have been joking on the forum but it sounds like a fabulous adventure to me.

    Hello to everyone. I didn’t participate because I have a young baby and toddler who requires much attention. I did try to keep track of the events and managed to watch some of the videos (will be watching the rest in the next few days.) I learned a lot and enjoyed everybody’s creations. I’m itching to have the time and try my hand at the incredible techniques and projects shared during the Stamp-a-faire. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and creations and a huge Congratulations to Nicole and the talented ladies of the DT for a successful event.

    I was going to run back downstairs and take a picture of my stamp room and the mess, but I am too tired. I didn’t get to participate on Saturday because of my granddaughter 3rd birthday party, but I got to spend all day yesterday in my stamp room. What fun. Thanks to Nicole and all of the Design Team for all the videos and examples. I loved all the projects.
