    I never met a craft I didn’t like! I scarpbook, I knit, I even make my own glass beads (they are called Lampwork beads). I love crafting, it is what keeps me sane!

  • 16
    Donna says:

    I was born with the “bad athlete” gene; I can barely throw a ball. Crafts have always been my hobbies. Currently, I knit and make jewelery. As with cardmaking, creating something uselful and beautiful is so rewarding.

  • 17
    Jude says:

    At this time, papercrafting (cards, stamping, scrapbooking) are my main interests.

    In the past, I’ve done many crafts and revisit those sometimes (many kinds of needlework, crochet, knit, macrame, pencil sketching and drawing…and more). Some go along with papercrafting – like photography & quilling.

  • 18

    I enjoy making time for sewing, which is a new craft for me. I’m starting to blend my love papercrafting with sewing and it’s definitely a lot of fun!

    Beading or jewelry making, I just made my mother a birthstone rosary for her birthday. She said it is one of her most treasured possessions. I am so glad it means so much to her. Ya for release day! Thanks for all your hard work ladies.

  • 46
    ValerieC says:

    I love to cross stitch. When I’m very stressed or tense it’s my “go to” thing to do. You can only think about it while you do it. I use to do small, quick projects. Now I do large ones over months of time but, it pays off with the results. I love to olden days samplers the most!

  • 47
    Jackie Solomon says:

    Photography is my main hobby besides paper crafting. I dabble in crochet, furniture building and home organization as well. Guess you can say that my interests are pretty eclectic.

  • 56
    Sandy in Epping says:

    It is a fantastic release for all kinds of crafters notions this month. In the past, I have enjoyed knitting, sewing my own clothes, cooking, and have recently been enjoying a bit of quilting, and am acquiring a farbics stash to compete with my beloved stamps :-O
    I am busily looking for a new clock with more numbers on it to fit in all my hobbies.

  • 57

    After papercrafts, I’m most likely to get excited about a sewing project. I started sewing before I got involved in scrapbooking/cardmaking, and although my machine sees more paper than fabric nowadays, I do still occasionally use it to sew! πŸ™‚

  • 58
    Marcia Hill says:

    Stamping is my first love, but knitting is also a favorite…I’m really into knitting socks and love all the colors and stripes that are out there to work with! :0) I love the all the new “crafty” stamps & dies you have out this month!!!

  • 59
    Sherry says:

    I used to cross stitch but haven’t in years. I am doing some knitting for gifts right now but it is not something I generally would do. I do love to do crafty things for my home though. Add in papercrafting and that keeps me busy enough!

  • 60
    Chris Simon says:

    I love to crochet, bake, and make jewelry. I need a bigger house for all of my craft supplies!

  • 61
    Lori Weinberg says:

    Maybe not technically a craft, cooking is the one place I can find time everday to be creative and the immediate satisfaction of sharing with my family is a major bonus! And if i can find time to sew a little too all the better!

  • 62

    I recently discovered nuno felting (combining wool with fine silk), which is a bit addictive and a surprisingly good workout. You get to throw your work around in the final stage! I have always loved to draw, paint, knit and bead. Papercrafting is my obsession and “happy place.”

  • 63
    Jayne K says:

    I didn’t realize that there were other crafts. But, I cook, and cross stitch, too.

  • 64
    Elise McKinney says:

    Card making is my first love. I also make flower arrangements and wreaths.

    Knitting! That’s why I’m so extra excited about these sets πŸ™‚


  • 66
    Jan Pufall says:

    Quilting and/or sewing is another craft I try to make time for. Card making takes a lot less time to set up, though.

  • 67
    Lennie says:

    I love all sorts of crafts! I enjoy scrapbooking, making t-shirts with my cameo, and anything with paint!!

  • 68
    Kim Edsen says:

    Right now I am frantically working on finishing up a very detailed cross-stitched Christmas stocking for my daughter. I have her sister’s done (they are twins) but there is now way they will be going up this year until they are BOTH done. I also scrapbook, am an avid photographer, cook/bake, and garden. Really, can you ever have too many hobbies?

  • 69

    I was always a cross-sticher before I discovered papercrafting and it is still a craft I enjoy especially during the long cold winter nights!

  • 70
    Lori Cullen says:

    Stamping is pretty much my only craft and has been for about 10 years now. I make cards, scrapbook pages, and little gifts for teachers and friends.

  • 71
    Julie Rae says:

    Oh just: sewing, quilting, x-stitch, embroidery/crewel, knitting, crocheting, costume-making (employs a mix of crafts), baking (I cook because I must but I bake because I love to), just getting into alcohol markers and the coloring of digital images, stamping/card making, scrapbooking and more recently digital scrapbooking (try it, you will be a changed scrapper and for the better), and reading (probably my first hobby as a child or maybe that was coloring!). Phew, maybe that list and two part-time jobs is why I find it challenging to finish things?!

  • 72
    Michelle says:

    I enjoy cross-stitching.

  • 73
    Connie P. says:

    I recently became a self-taught crocheter and have been making dishcloths by the dozens? Anyone need one….? I also like to dabble in quilting and Sculpey clay.

  • 74
    Lisa says:

    Books-I love making handmade journals for gifting (& using myself.). They are so fun to store new ideas or thoughts to reflect on later. And rubber stamping really adds to the pages!

    I love to knit, especially when the house is quiet.

  • 78
    Lori Oglesby says:

    I can’t afford them all and certainly don’t have time for them all!!!! haha! I also enjoy sewing, quilting,knitting and crochet, embroidery, baking and I collect Fiesta dishes. If the little good fairy would visit my house more often I might actually get to enjoy all of my crafts!!!!!

  • 79
    Lee Cockrum says:

    I knit, crochet, embroider, sew, make jewelry and scrapbook! I love to make things!

  • 80
    Tammie J. says:

    Card making takes up most of my discretionary crafting time but I also like quilling. I’m amazed at the variety of images one can make with rolled up strips of paper!

  • 81
    Denise E says:

    I love scrapbooking, which of course goes hand in hand with stamping/cardmaking. I also enjoy quilting and cross-stitch, but never seem to find time to do my other hobbies, because paper crafting is my passion! =o)

  • 82

    This month’s release may be the inspiration I have needed to return to “hand-work” as my mother called it. I especially enjoy a crochet project during the winter months or maybe some of the hand-made jewelry I have attempted and not finished!

  • 83
    Linda Monroe says:

    Does baking count as a craft? If so, that is another handmade thing I enjoy. I love to give hand made baked items, packaged up pretty at the holidays.

  • 84
    Ted says:

    I have tried my hand at sewing. And, while I enjoy it… I keep coming back to my first love of paper crafting. πŸ™‚ Thanks for a wonderful release, Nichole!

    My daughter loves to make beaded bracelets and I bead along with her so we can spend time together. In addition I like to sew and scrapbook. I’m usually game to try any craft.

  • 91
    JoAnn D says:

    I started knitting again after many years away from it. The simple scarfs that can be made with one skein of yarn are pretty and practical. I also like to sew, have quilted and I enjoy corss stitch. Creating something artistic and pretty is good for the soul!

  • 92
    Wendy F. says:

    I am new to paper crafting and really love it but I still make room to my other crafts like sewing,cooking, baking crochetting, knitting and just plain crafting. Making things with my hands is a joy.

  • 93

    I have been learning how to sew for about 2 years and am just feeling confident in sewing on my cards, lol! πŸ™‚ I am hoping to move on to fabric soon!

  • 94
    Joanne says:

    Stamping is my primary love, however, I also make time to cross stich. This month’s releases fit perfectly into both crafts. Thank you.


  • 95
    Shawn Wenrich says:

    I was an avid counted cross stitcher before I started Papercrafting. Over the last few years I’ve done a little jewelry making too. I would love to try out the paper beads shown here in the blog but I haven’t taken the time yet.

  • 96
    StephH says:

    I love glass fusion. It still amazes me that I can take a piece of flat glass and turn it into a beautiful creation just by heating it up. Wish I had more time to both glass and papercrafts!

  • 97
    Krista says:

    Last year I just started knitting. I’ve also done cross stitch and embroidery. So this month’s release is right up my alley!

  • 98
    Julie Ann says:

    I make jewelry and also do flower arranging. But my heart belongs to making cards.

  • 99
    Ashley says:

    I love all crafts! As a photographer I crochet the hats I use in newborn sessions. I stamp to make personal cards for my clients and families. Also as a mommy to a 3 year old I love to Scrapbook and just do general crafts with him to keep him busy. πŸ™‚ He absolutely LOVES stamping! LOL!! πŸ™‚ Beautiful release by the way! πŸ™‚

    Hugs! Ash-

  • 100

    Cross-stitching and tole painting are the other things I enjoy doing.

  • 101

    I love to crochet, and do a bit of sewing too. However, my next big crafting goal is to learn how to quilt!

  • 102
    Tracey C. says:

    I hardly have time these days for ANY crafts it seems, but I *do* have a cross stitch that I’ve been working on for a long time, and will pick it up now and then. I’ve tried to crochet, but failed miserably, lol. Would love to try and learn to knit…maybe some day! But I think card making will always be my number 1, because I can have a finished product in a short amount of time. I like the gratification πŸ™‚

  • 103
    Olendia says:

    I love to sew, but paper crafting takes most of my free time ;))

  • 104
    Donna M says:

    I used to do loads of cross-stitch, making so many of my Christmas gifts (I have a few pieces left for me). But…now I love making cards & scrapbooking so much that I hardly have time for anything else. With 3 grandkids to scrap now, I seem to get more & more behind. Actually I’d love to have something more mobile to take with me, perhaps I should learn to knit!

  • 105
    Kris says:

    I like to make jewelry a little but honestly I am pretty much stuck on stamping!

  • 106
    Cara T says:

    I’m a big fan of all crafts. I’ve dabbled in stamping, scrapbooking, cross-stitching, etc. One of my favorite things to do is to walk around craft stores and craft fairs and look at all the various craft projects that are out there. The possibilities are endless, which is why crafting is so much fun!!

  • 107
    irene says:

    I’m also doing my Project Life this year together with cardmaking this is taking al the spare time I have. But I love it. Bye Irene

  • 108

    I learned to needlepoint from my grandmother–it’s so old fashioned but I really do enjoy it. Card making and paper crafting are definitely my primary crafting and I can finish a project more quickly.

    I also enjoy beading but papercrafting is #1 for me!

  • 110
    Felicia says:

    Card making is my first love, but I do scrapbook and have made a couple of flannel rag quilts (with my mom’s help)!

  • 111
    SachikoB says:

    I love making anything my son would be excited and enjoy. Decorating the house is one and making handmade stamp from eraser is another. He got almost all of his favorite cartoon characters stamps so his stuff can be personalized including his lunch bag!

  • 112
    Deb F says:

    Papercrafting is my main craft at this time. That includes anything I can do with paper, such as quilling. I have been an avid counted cross-sticher, but my stamps and paper addiction do not leave much time for that. I always think about combining the two.

  • 113
    Allison says:

    I love to attempt quilting and cooking, but I love scrapbooking the most!

  • 114
    Sue in Grapevine says:

    If cake-decorating is a craft, that’s one I enjoy. Just like stamping, people who don’t do it think it’s magic. Very gratifying!

  • 115
    Kris says:

    Crafting has always been a big part of my life. I love to knit. I also do rughooking, quilting, English Smocking and heirloom sewing. You name it and I’ve probably done it!

    Debra Taylor says:

    I love to make jewelry. That is why your paperbead collection is so much fun for me.

  • 117
    Tracy S. says:

    I love to knit and I make jewelry, I usually combine my stamping with my jewelry making. I love silver clay for just that reason.

  • 118
    Chriss Blagrave says:

    I knit every night, year round and when it is not 100 degrees here in Austin, I putter in the garden. Paper is my passion though and I make cards every week of the year!
    Beautiful release!

  • 119
    Becky Rusher says:

    Cardmaking is still my favorite, but I also enjoy cross-stitching and quilting. I would love to take up jewelry making, but never seem to find the time.

  • 120
    Teresa Blue says:

    I’ve tried it all in my crafting career. I must say that I’m always drawn to paper and fabric. I’ve been a quilter since 1989…so I make time for that. I also make time for childrens crafts as I volunteer with special needs kids teaching art and crafts.

  • 121
    Emily Anna says:

    I love to cross-stitch. I was so excited about this month’s stitching inspired theme!!

    Janet says:

    My other passion is gardening. I love flowers and working in the yard. I’ve also started to mess with making bracelets and I sew a little bit.

  • 124
    Kathie Duffy says:

    Besides card making, I like to make silk flower arrangements, paint pottery/ceramics, and make candles.

    Paper crafting always has and will always be my first craft love and PTI has enhanced that love to the very extreme. I almost gave it up until I found Nichole and Papertrey Ink! Thanks to all you fabulous women and your incredible talent! It has fostered my craft and has pushed me beyond boundaries and has opened up new doors for me in the paper crafting world!

  • 125
    Pat Q says:

    I’ve recently gotten back into making quilts. It has been many years, and I am loving all the new ideas in quiltmaking.

  • 126
    Kay Tillman says:

    Sewing bags and purses is my other top craft addiction. I go back and forth between stamping being my top priority and sewing being on top of my to do list.

  • 127
    Donna says:

    Knitting! And you nailed it this time. I travel a lot on business. When on the road I knit, when at home, I stamp. Now I can send interesting cards to the knitters I’ve met and become friends with all over the country. Thanks!

  • 128
    Tammy says:

    All of the crafting I do revolves around paper. I’ve dabbled into jewelry making but prefer the feel of card stock and inky fingers to wire and beads πŸ™‚

  • 129
    Diana K says:

    Besides stamping, I love photography and scrapbooking and beading! I love colour and I think that’s why I love crafting so much.

  • 130
    Christine Nixon says:

    I am an avid cross stitcher but it pales in comparison to my first love, card making. I also write in my spare time, although not sure that is a hobby as much as a craft.

  • 131
    Diane Anthony says:

    I enjoy making time for quilting, cross stitching and crocheting, not to mention scrapbooking, card making and stamping! Oh for more leisure hours to pursue these hobbies.

  • 132
    Linda says:

    I used to tole paint, but since I got involved with paper crafting, card making and scrapbooking are my main crafts. I think I love them, because they are much neater and easier to handle than painting.

    I love to paint. I don’t get much time to do it, but I love it none the less πŸ™‚

    Hi Nichole –

    I dabble in a few things – LOL! I love to making glass beads. I make PMC jewelry pieces and will often use my stamps to add texture to the clay before firing. I paint using watercolor and oils, I draw and I make dolls. I really like mix media art, where I can take several of the crafts I love and combine them. But I am fascinated by anything with paper, which is why I love to make cards.

    Stamping is my main hobby, but I have many other hobbies, when I can find the time, like sewing, crocheting, knitting, home decor. I come from a family of crafty people, so it is in the genes.

    Sarah Moerman says:

    Besides cardmaking, I also cross-stitch…though it’s taken a back seat to cardmaking the last number of years. πŸ˜‰ My Mom cross-stitches, knits, sews, etc etc. …and makes cards. This release is just perfect for her and you’ve just taken care of her Christmas gift. πŸ˜‰

    Karen Walker says:

    After card making, scrapbooking is the other craft I really enjoy. I guess photography isn’t a craft, but it takes up as much time as both the others!

    Sewing has always been my first love, but making time for it seems a bit more difficult than papercrafts. But I must say since I’ve started playing the violin I have noticed that I squeeze every moment out of the day to play, it is fast becoming my favoirite way to enjoy some relaxing time.

    I used to do counted cross stitch, but with my aging vision it’s gotten a lot harder. I really enjoy everything I can do with paper. Scrapbooking is my main focus, but I’ve gotten into making cards because they are quick, easy and I’ve got all the supplies I need!

  • 205

    Stamping and creating cards is my main craft. I love to sew but usually only do this when I incorporate it in my card or work on a project with my daughter. I’ve always wanted to take up needlepoint. Other than that, I love photography!

  • 213
    Adrienne A. says:

    I am a knitting fanatic! I also quilt, cross-stitch, tat and crochet, but if I’m not papercrafting, I am knitting! It goes anywhere you want to be which is what is making me so in love with the knitting themed stamps – it’s my two favorite things combined!

  • 230
    Dani B says:

    I make charms with polymer clay and really enjoy it. It’s a little tricky to bake, but it’s pretty easy to shape, especially if you have a mold. My kids get to play with it too, but I have to be careful where we use it. I used to cross-stitch a long time ago and am so ready to teach my daughters how to do it. I really like digital scrapbooking. I have so many kits I needed a drive for them alone, but I usually end up making hybrids with the digi kits and only a few actual digi pages. I’ve considered knitting or crocheting, but I can’t seem to sit still long enough for that. I’m one of those “To-Do” Crafters. I have a lot of things I want to do, but never have the time, so I host several craft parties throughout the year where I get to show people new techniques and love seeing everyone else’s projects.

  • 231
    Lin says:

    I have been into cross-stitch and quilting, but that all fell by the wayside when I discovered stamping. But lately I have discovered knitting ruffled scarves – with the way this yarn is made, I can make one each day if I’m so inclined……haven’t knitted since high school (and it just never took at the time), so this is a lovely surprise to rediscover!

    When your a grandmother of 10, there’s always someone in need of my help! From costumes to room decor, to projects for school, it’s thankfully a family effort.

    Jan Marcham says:

    I feel like saying, “You name it I’ve done it!” I started out with stamping then moved to basket weaving, then loom weaving, then silver stamped jewelry and now some knitting, a little sewing along with the stamping and paper crafts. So it’s like I’ve come full circle. I have to be doing something!

  • 257
    Linda says:

    I enjoy machine embroidery too. I have been known to incorporate it into my stamping.

  • 258

    Debbie Blair says:

    My greatest enjoyment comes from making cards but I love being creative with any project that involves paper (different colors, patterns, textures), and all the different kind of embellishments I can add to it. Before having several eye surgeries I enjoyed counted cross stitch. I am always inspired by all the projects done by the design team here!

  • 263
    Heather D says:

    Beautiful release sets – love them so far!

    Kara says:

    With a new baby on the way next month, I’ve been getting out my flannel and planning to have a few new baby blankets sewn.

    One of the reasons I got into cards was I love being able to sit down and in a reasonably short amount of time having a finished product, unlike the many “UFO’s” hanging out in my material stash πŸ™‚

    I have also been working on felt quiet books. Using dies makes it go so much easier.

  • 276
    Cindy Coutts says:

    None. I’m perfectly happy with my paper, stamps and embellishment collections that have taken up about 30% of my house. Now, it would definitely be a great surprise to win the entire release since PTI gets my entire stamping budget monthly ..hint,hint.

    Too many crafts! I sew, knit, quilt as well as paper crafting, scrapbooking. I also started doing some jewelry (mostly bracelets) after PTI introduced the beading paper and dies. I always have two or three different crafts on the go at any one time. Right now I’m making beaded bracelets, sewing little pouches to hold them, working on my Christmas cards and tags and knitting a baby sweater. I also have to finish quilting a table runner and place mats for Christmas. Better get back to it all!!

    My mom taught me to crochet when I was about 10 and I love making time to create one-of-a-kind hand stitched items for friends and family. (Mom also taught me to sew, but the needles did not appeal and I never could figure out how to cut in a straight line…)

    Uh oh, my brain is literally SPINNING with ideas! …which leads me to one of my favorite pastimes – spinning fiber into yarn. I even had angora rabbits at one time and clipped them regularly to have my own luscious angora to spin. I do knit, so this release is especially exciting for me, and I weave occasionally (it’s that darn TIME thing, or I would weave more often!) In the REST of my spare time (HA!), I make glass beads (lampwork), string beads for jewelry AND do metalsmithing to make jewelry also. Oh. and I teach all that! πŸ™‚

    My main crafting now is stamping/cardmaking, but years ago I would cross stitch to keep my hands busy. Have also done some crocheting and knitting but only simple patterns. Never was much of a seamstress but could manage the easier tasks using a sewing machine. Need to get back at that so I could sew on cards. In my much younger days, I was always making felt tree skirts, Christmas ornaments, murals, etc. Lots of handsewing of sequins also.

    Brenda Torgerson says:

    I started out as a weaver and had a huge floor loom that I loved. I did a bit of tole painting, crewel work, ceramics, sewed since I was 13 and made tons of clothes for my girls while they were growing up. Did a little knitting, crocheting as well. Now I love card making, paper crafting, repurposing items for home use, and just being creative.

    Christine Sudmann says:

    I like to embroider by machine and spend most of the time digitzing designs and giving classes for the software.
    Stamping and papercrafting is the relaxing complement – and much quieter than a runnign embroidery machine!

    Your beautiful designs and dies make me want to spend more and more time papercrafting….

    Greetings, Christine

  • 581

    Cross stitching and knitting. But, my favorite craft is scrapbooking even though it seems I do more cards than scrapbooking. When I scrapbook the sense of satisfaction is amazing. πŸ™‚

    I like to make Christmas Wreaths. Last year I made eight wreaths for my family. Each one has fits their personality. I made one with angels for my aunt, snowmen for my brother, crystals for my sister, santa clauses for my other brother, red pointsettas for my uncle, and so on. I also make them for my friends. I do the colors and themes they ask for. I really enjoy it.

  • 587

    I don’t really do any other crafts…but every now and then I am inspired to pull out my yarn and crochet a hat or a scarf. But that inspiration comes only during the winter and only on a rare moment of desperation! LOL!

  • 588
    Pamela A says:

    I make jewelry,there is cross over between the cards with using up some leftover papers. I also love to cross stitch samplers, just got back into last year (wasn’t sure I could still see to work on linen),I like to do this during the winter months. Card making is still my first choice.

    Well, I wouldn’t really call cooking a craft, but that is my next favorite hobby. I love to try new recipes! I used to be a cross-stitcher, but once I had children I didn’t really have time for stamping and sewing, so the sewing has been set aside for a few years.

    I knit. I have knitted for over 30 years. When we lived in a colder climate, I would knit all the kids sweaters, cardigans etc. every year. Now, as we live in a hotter climate, I’m relegated to socks and shawls, but still enjoy knitting and knit most of my Christmas presents. I have a long list of requests from friends and family. However, this year, I can make cute tags to go along with my goodies.

  • 603

  • 634

    When I’m not cardmaking, I like to find old wooden windows with multiple panes in them, remove the glass, paint the
    windows and put in mirrors instead of the glass. Sometimes I will stencil on the window if there is enough room.
