Introducing the 2013 Team and Project Favorites

By February 5, 2013General

Welcome to the first day of February Anniversary Release festivities!  Everyone at Papertrey Ink has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring you TEN days of fun contests & challenges, prizes, inspiration and SO much more!  Let's start out the day today with a few sneak peeks of what's to come for new products this month!

Maile Belles has a stunning new floral set that is trendy, but illustrated in such a way that it will truly be timeless.  There are options to quickly stamp a pre-assembled floral cluster, or there are even individual pieces you can use to create custom arrangements.  And the font combination?  To die for!!!

Melissa Bickford has a new monthly series coming that is kicking off with a little something for Easter projects.  The large bold word included each month with complement the companion sentiments and image so you can create lots of different looks with a $5 set!

Melissa Bickford has also designed a beautiful new set dedicated to motherhood,  however she has executed it perfectly so that it can be used for other types of recipients too!  You will not want to miss the amazing possibilities this set holds!

Now that we have the sneak peeks taken care of, let me introduce you to the 2013 Papertrey Ink Design Team.  I have asked each of them to share six of their favorite Papertrey projects with you, in honor of our sixth anniversary!

While there are no "new" introductions, I feel as though it is still important to take this opportunity to give each of them a shout out and commend them for their contributions to creativity, not only on behalf of Papertrey, but to the entire paper crafting industry and community.


Ashley says, "Periodically, the team checks in on one another to see how we are holding up with creating our projects and deadlines. Each month, I try to get ahead of the game, perhaps to be the person who lets the entire team know…"I'm all done" or "just 1 more project to go." But, every month I'm creating right into the wee hours of the night and just meeting those deadlines. I think it's so funny that I've tried each month since being on the team since November 2011, but have yet to achieve the goal of completing all of my assignments with plenty of time to spare. I'm really hoping this year, I will be able to be the person who finishes extra early. A girl can dream, right?! Here's to the crafters who also burn the midnight oil!"

Ashley is such a unique paper crafter, in that she takes the most unpredictable combinations of products, colors and embellishments, and turns them into a masterpiece!  I love that every time I visit her blog, her projects lead me to jot down ideas to try out in my own crafting space.  You know someone has true talent when they inspire you to go try something new yourself!  Not only is Ashley an amazingly gifted artist, but she also has a heart of gold.  She is a wonderful asset to the team as a wonderful contributor AND friend.  I couldn't ask for a better representative of our company and I am so pleased that Ashley is continuing on with us for another year.

Betsy says, "Where has the year gone?  I can't believe it's time for another Papertrey anniversary celebration…but what's really hard to believe is that I've been working with Papertrey since October 2008.  That means this February will be my 54th release!  When looking through past projects to choose my favorites for this post, it's funny how looking through them reminded me of what was going on in my life when I created them.  My April release projects remind me of the day I set up a table in my living room to stamp because I was having a garage sale.  My August projects make me think of the days we were re-siding our home and I would sneak in a few minutes of stamping in between painting!  It was fun to look back and through the year and be reminded of those things, but I'm also excited to look ahead to all of the inspiring things Papertrey will be bringing us in the next year!  I hope you're ready for a fun ride!"

"Betsy did again!" can often be heard out loud in my office as I prepare graphics for group posts each month.  I have never seen a single artist repeatedly "hit it out of the park" like Betsy does.  She puts so much thought, so much time & love, so much creativity into every single creation.  She is the queen of taking an ordinary product and making it extraordinary.  I love Betsy's upbeat personality and the ray of sunshine she brings to everyone through her blog posts and her interactions within the forum.  She is a true gem and someone I am very proud to have on our team.

Cristina says, "I’m the rookie on the team, and I still remember vividly the day that an email from Nichole landed in my inbox, inviting me aboard. It was June 2012, and I was due with my second child the next month. The chance to be on the Papertrey team had been a dream of mine, so I didn’t want to turn it down, but ack! Could I handle it with a newborn in the house? I agonized over it for about 24 hours, then I finally emailed Nichole to explain my dilemma. She couldn’t have been more understanding and accommodating, and the rest of the team welcomed me with open arms. After my son was born, after the mass email to friends and family was sent, one of the first things I did was share the news with my PTI peeps. For years, I was such fans of all of them. Now I feel like they’ve become my friends. "

While Cristina has not been with us for long, she has made an everlasting footprint on the team and we can't imagine it without her!  Her spectacular clean & simple designs are something that I personally enjoy seeing on a regular basis.  She really inspires everyone to take just a simple image or two and create a true work of art that is quick and easy to create.  Cristina proves that a project doesn't need much to be a masterpiece in of itself, and I love her for reminding us all of this.  Her sweet disposition and her professionalism make her an all-star in my book and I greatly look forward to getting to know her even better during the next few months.

Danielle says, "I have been with Papertrey Ink for exactly 2 years now, since February 2011. Being on this team has really helped me grow as a designer and pushed me in creative ways I never thought possible! Each month, I am still so excited to see what's new. To me, Papertrey Ink really has driven the trends in the paper crafting industry – the trendy, elegant stamp designs are one of a kind. I have truly loved getting to know the girls on the team, between the phone calls with Dawn and emails with Melissa and Jessica and the other team members! Jessica and I are always reminding each other of the deadlines and helping each other out. The camaraderie of the team is amazing, and I can tell you that each one of the Papertrey Ink ladies is truly genuine. Well, it was extremely difficult to pick only six of my favorite projects from the past 2 years, and since I've already posted many of the mini albums and the larger projects as my favorites in the past, I decided to pick six of my favorite cards for this post. I hope they will inspire you to break out your stamps and dies and get creative!"

Danielle has an eclectic, shabby-chic style that is the envy of so many of us!  Her color combinations, homemade embellishments, layers and just overall creative use of product is so incredibly inspiring!  She truly has a knack for looking at things differently and making us believe in her vision at the same time, and I admire her greatly for that.  Danielle's amazing personality and kindness are also important characteristics to note.  Her presence within the team forum is like a rainbow on a cloudy day, full of color and energy.  Her enthusiasm is definitely contagious and I am beyond thrilled to have her on board with us for another year!

Dawn says, "I have been with Papertrey now, since July of 2008! Goodness how the time flies….I can’t believe my five year anniversary is just around the corner! I can honestly say it’s been such a joy and I’m so grateful to be a part of this amazing team. There are certainly times behind the scenes when things don’t arrive when they should or something doesn’t go just exactly according to plan, but it’s so great to be able to share those moments with such a dear group of friends on the Design Team. These girls make me laugh, they inspire me and make me extremely grateful for this job. And I can’t fail to mention how graciously Nichole leads the team. I recently had a box full of goodies for an upcoming release that was MIA and showed up really late. Rather than be super stressed about it and in turn, pile that stress on me, Nichole just rolled with it as she’s so great to do. I appreciate that so much about her and I’m so grateful to her, Jane & Julie for all of the opportunities that they’ve afforded me in my position with Papertrey Ink."

When you think of Dawn, you think bright colors and vibrant creations.  Her design style is all about color and the things that make her the most happy.  I love that when a project, I can instantly tell whether or not it is Dawn's creation because it just exudes happiness!  Not only are her paper crafting projects happy, but she herself is a positive person who is constantly smiling!  She is always sharing words of encouragement for those that need it within the team and she is always one of the first to cheer when someone has good news to share.  Dawn's talents, both as an artist and a friend, are a wonderful contribution to the team and we are so lucky to have her on board with us for another year!

Debbie says, "I'm always delighted every month to see what Nichole and other Papertrey Ink designers have come up, and I've had this privilege right from the beginning five years ago! When my Papertrey box arrives, it's pretty much like Christmas every month. Other than actually getting my box every month, my close-second-favorite time is always seeing what the other girls have come up with. The range of styles on the Papertrey team is incredible, from Maile's and Cristina's clean, strong simplicity, to Melissa's and Danielle's sweet, perfect shabbiness; from Betsy's and Jess's great color combos and rock-solid design to Ashley's and Erin's modern and totally on-trend use of materials; from Dawn's ability to make any style her own to Heather's magic with kraft and rusticity. Last, but never least, Nichole. . . I can honestly say that every month I look at her countdown pieces and think, "WOW! Why didn't I think of that?"  I am inspired by each of them--truly–and I'm happy to continue be a small part of this team."

Debbie has been with us since the beginning and after working with someone for this long, you tend to run out of superlatives that can aptly describe them.  Even though Debbie works with us as a "special agent" and contributes only a handful of projects to the release each month, her work continues to inspire all of us to brand new levels.  Her skill with Copics always pushed me to try new things and continue to practice getting them to work the magic she seems to execute so effortlessly!  Her warmth and kindness on a personal level is definitely something that is worth mentioning as well.  She is always a wonderful person to work with on so many different levels, and I appreciate her and the time she dedicates to Papertrey each and every month!

Erin says, "For the second time during my PTI tenure (starting in February of 2010), I was pregnant this past year. In searching for a baby name, I ran across the name of Dawn's sister on her blog–Glory. I was also, at the time, lobbying hard to schedule a c-section on July 4th. (It just happens to be the best birthday one can have. I speak from personal experience, seeing as I'm a 4th of July baby too. You never have to work or go to school, there's always a party, you get fireworks. Seriously, it rocks.)  I thought Gloria "Glory" Josephine would be a great name for a little girl born on July 4th. I'd have never thought of it if it wasn't for Dawn. Of course, I immediately told the team my thoughts. Gushing and baby talk soon followed. You know how us moms-to-be are…nothing is a hotter topic than baby this and baby that. The girls indulged me. And Dawn was super excited that there was going to be another Glory around. We all know how this goes, right? I had a baby boy on June 22! So much for our grand PTI baby plans. But this is an excellent example of how open, loving, and chatty the group of these talented ladies are. We work hard and we play hard. I'm so very honored to counted in their ranks."

Even with lots of little kiddos running her in circles at home, Erin impresses me with her ability to truly "do it all".  Her designs are always like a breath of fresh air, using amazing combinations of products, both new and old, to amaze us and inspire us.  Erin is a super fun person behind the scenes and often times provides team members with a good "chuckle" of the day, often times with cute stories about her little ones.  Erin is an incredible person with many talents and I am truly looking forward to working with her for another year.

Heather says, "I have been with Papertrey Ink since the very beginning and I can't tell you enough how much it has been a blessing in my life. I couldn't have better people to work with at Papertrey and all of the design team girls are fabulous. Sometimes, working from home can be a little lonely and I think the design team girls keep everyone lifted up with supporting each other with projects, deadlines (ding dong!), and events going on in our everyday life from the little things to ones most epic. This past year I also especially loved getting to know some of the Minnesota Paperytrey Ink customers at stamping get togethers down near Minneapolis. There is nothing better than some good quality stamping and creating time with people who are just as obsessed over all of this as I am. The past 6 years have truly been a wonderful adventure and I look forward to many more in the future! Happy 6th Anniversary Papertrey Ink!"

Heather is another designer who has been with us since the beginning, nearly six years ago!  Heather certainly has her trademarks, such as Kraft cardstock and white ink, but one of the things I love best about her is the passion she invests into her scrapbooking projects.  She pours her heart into each layout, every mini book, making it something that will be a memorable keepsake for years to come.  What a special gift for not only her family, but for us to enjoy and gain inspiration from as well!  Heather is so laid back, it makes it easy to work with her, and I know the coming year will be just as amazing as the last six!

Jessica says, "So very thankful that I get to be a part of the Papertrey Ink team once again!  December marked my 3rd anniversary with PTI… this will be my 39th release… wow.  This year has been a fun one with the team as we've laughed together and encouraged each other.  I especially love my monthly chats with Danielle as we keep each other updated on our projects and spur each other on.  Papertrey products still have such an ability to inspire me and lots of that comes from Nichole and the rest of the team.  I so LOVE being encouraged to try something new, give it a shot, do whatever feels like me… that's PTI to me 🙂 "

Jessica is another of our clean & simple gals, but what I love about her is the little dose of eclectic style she injects into her projects.  Whether it be an interesting color scheme, or a unique embellishment, she always has just a touch of something that is so "Jessica"!  Her personality is the much of the same, with little "Jessica" zingers thrown into a conversation, things will never be boring!  With all of that aside, Jessica is a charitable, warm-hearted gal who always puts others ahead of herself.  She inspires me both in creativity and moral compass and I count it as a huge blessing to get to work with her again during the coming year.

Maile says, "I'm so exited to be sharing in another Papertrey Ink anniversary celebration!  PTI is celebrating 6 years of amazingness and I couldn't be more honored to have been apart of that since 2010.  This last year has been a great one!  There's nothing like getting to know and growing closer with a team of talented designers that all have a common love of stamps.  A recent highlight that comes to mind is the kindheartedness of this team through our Christmas exchange.  This was a first for us as a team.  A gifting from one team member to another, of a box of thoughtful and well loved crafty goodies.  My gift from Betsy was one of my favorites from the Christmas season.  She packaged each piece gorgeously in her "Betsy" style.  The presentation was the best part!  I look forward to sharing another year with them as part of the team."

Maile may be soft spoken and somewhat shy, but her projects are always both brilliant & bold.  When you look up "think outside the box" in the dictionary, there you will find Maile and her amazing artwork.  She is well-known for turning images at interesting angles, creating amazing arrangements from just a few stamps and ink.  I admire Maile for her fierce love of her family and her son.  She is an amazing example of someone who has conquered balance in her work and at home and I strive to learn from her as we work alongside each other for another year.

Melissa says, "I have been with Papertrey Ink for about 5 1/2 years.  I can't believe it's been that long!  You see, each month as the new stamp sets and products arrive, I feel like I've been given the opportunity to design for Papertrey Ink all over again.  I can't begin to tell you how much joy and inspiration I have experienced while working here.  I love it that the magic of creating has not faded and seems to begin again with each new release.  This year I have had plenty of good laughs at myself while taking the plunge into making videos and tutorials.  Holy cow!  I've even been in tears a time or two.  I am one who loves blending into the background.  I am so happy and comfortable there.  But, growth and change are always good and I took on the challenge of tutorials to push myself out of my comfort zone.  If only we could have an "MIM Bloopers", I'd have plenty of material to provide.  My favorite moments are those though when after I have finished my recording, that I find my little girl sitting in my chair at my craft table, the video camera positioned to record the making of her latest and greatest creation, hearing her repeat phrases and explain her process.  It warms my heart, makes me laugh, and creates an awesome memory."

Melissa has a wonderful soul, from the top of her head to the tips of her toes, her warmth exudes into every aspect of what she does.  Her words, her projects, her actions.  They are all full of sunshine and sprinkles of glitter, making the world a more beautiful place.  She is an amazing person with so much talent, I am often left speechless after seeing her designs, dissecting every precious detail.  Melissa has a strong positive presence within the team and it just wouldn't be the same without her.  I am so incredibly happy that she is joining us for another year so we can all learn more from her together.

    So very excited to see what is coming this month and happy to see the design team all back! I get more inspiration from their posts than anywhere else on the web! I can honestly say I use at LEAST one PTI product every single time I sit down to craft -cant wait to see what’s in store this year! I think Betsy and Danielle are the two team members whose style I try to emulate most, but all the designers are fantastic and every month I am impressed by their abilities. I think what amazes me most is that their projects never look alike – even though they are using the same products. Amazing creativity!

Looking forward to the rest of the reveals and another great year with PTI.

    Papertrey Ink’s Design Team has provided me so much inspiration and direction in my card making. Even though I don’t always participate, the weekly MIM videos and monthly Blog Hops have really pushed me to try things I would never have on my own. Thanks to each member for all of the amazing projects – you really know how to bring paper, stamps and inks to life!!

    Pat Baker says:

    I think I discovered PTI in 2009, about a year after getting into stamping. Every month I wait (im)patiently for the release samples. Always inspiring! When I need a card for a specific event, PTI is always where I start searching, and I never fail to find a great idea! The highlight so far was the Stamping event 2 years ago in Cincinatti – where I went by myself and couldn’t have found a more gracious group of gals to stamp and hang out with. It was fabulous to meet Nichole and all the design team who were able to attend. I hope there will be another one of these soon!
    Congrats, PTI, on 6 FABULOUS, INSPIRING Years!

    Happy anniversary PTI! I discovered Papertrey Ink stamps about the time Melis came on board as a DT member. I have to confess that when I look ak different stamp companies products my first question is “does PTI carry a stamp like this? or Oh, PTI does this better”. I love all my PTI products and the monthly release inspiration is invaluable. Thanks DT for each awesome month,year and anniversary! Here’s to looking forward to another year!

    I just love the PTI DT! They are so very creative!

    I am so excited to have found Papertrey Ink! I have been brainstorming ideas for a wedding shower. It is a garden theme. My co-worker showed me your website and pointed out the “Garden Variety” project by Jessica Witty! I love the mint chocolate cake baked in seedling cups! Adorable and ah….so clever!! I love so many of the projects but this one by far is my favorite!

    The PTI Design Team is such an inspiration to me in my paper crafting. The Make it Monday series has taught me so many new techniques. The samples shared during each release always make me want to buy a set I hadn’t intended to buy. And Erin and Betsy always have something creative and fun to share. Thank you!

    Connie Fisher says:

    Happy Anniversary PTI! And, thank you Design Team ladies….you all are amazingly talented. I look forward to each month’s release and the wide array of inspiration I have to work with. It never fails each month there is at least one stamp set I think I can live without and after I see all the projects, those sets turn into must haves. You always show me different ways to look at the sets – thus expanding each set for me. I am looking forward to many more years of new PTI designs and lots and lots of inspiration from you fabulous ladies!!

  • 175
    Keri says:

    I love the whimsical, feminine, layered style of several of the DT ladies. I often say that Melissa Phillips could sell me anything! LOL. The nice thing about the DT is that no two projects are alike and they are ALWAYS inspirational. Sometimes I’ll see a completed project and think, “huh, I never would have thought to use that that way.” 🙂 Thanks for making this such a fun place to spend my time. Happy 6th Anniversary PTI!!

  • 176

With the likes of Betsy, Debbie, and Nichole, not to mention the rest of the DT, the creativity showcased here is unsurpassed.

    Morag says:

    So happy all of my ‘enablers’ are coming back this year 😉
    It truly is hard to pick any one designer out of this delightful crowd. While I may have one or two I check out first, I am honestly drawn to different aspects of each of the designers and am so impressed each month. Sometimes I think I should just put a cushion under my chin to catch the jaw drops come release time!!

    Nicole I really have to say that between the 12 of you, PTI truly has the best sales force you could ask for and I wish you a wonderful anniversary and a great year to come!

  • 192
    Diana Fleming says:

    Each and every month I check Papertrey Ink to not only see what new goodies I have to have, but also to see what the fantastic Design Team has come up with. I don’t know how many times I’ve told myself I don’t need anything, but after seeing what the girls have created, wouldn’t you know it I’m purchasing again! Thank you for the wonderful enabling, Ladies of Papertrey Ink!!

  • 193
    Allison says:

    Oh my goodness, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!! I love each & everyone of you and even have you all bookmarked on my favorites and often scan the list for inspiration before I start crafting. It’s great news to be able to look forward to another year of beautiful projects.

  • 194

    I really loved reading about each and every designer. Some of the gals I have known a it about from other forums, but it was nice to hear from the gals that are new to me also. I am fairly new to PTI, and after lurking for awhile, now have joined the forum, and the challenges. Love the MIM tutorials, I usually can hardly wait for the video to be over before I start creating, and I’m ALWAYS inspired by them, and the release projects also. Keep up the good work!!

    Lauren A. says:

    In my humble opinion this is one of the BEST design teams out there! Every month when I see their inspiration projects it makes me want EVERYTHING. I have a wishlist that is literally a MILE long! There is also something for everyone from CAS to shabby chic to lots of layers to graphic…every member brings something different and unique to the table. They are all so amazing! So kudos DT and thanks for all your Wonderful Amazing Incredible projects and inspiration! Keep up the good work! 🙂


  • 199

    I love all the inspiration that comes from all these talented designers, but I have to say the 2 that will typically stop me in my tracks are Melissa and Betsy. I can’t count how many times I’ll view their creations and think, “Wow! How on earth did they ever think of that? That was BRILLIANT!” They are a great source of inspiration to me, and I’m always in awe of what they can bring to the (crafting) table. Great work and best wishes for the new year, PTI!!

    I am always in awe of the projects I come across from the gals at PTI. The styles are so varied, from CAS to shabby chic, so I always have inspiration no matter what my mood. Of course I spend more time shopping for supplies while browsing the projects than actually getting one done myself! lol Thank you PTI team for the richness you add to the paper-crafting world. Here’s to many more years of PTI goodness to come!

  • 205
    Tracy says:

    A simple thank you doesn’t seem sufficient to let you all know how much I appreciate the inspiration, color and fun you provide every month. I look forward to the sneak peeks every month and wonder “what are those girls going to come up with this time?” – and I have never been disappointed! When the countdown begins, I have been known to have my jaw drop open in front of my computer screen LOL. You all are just wonderful and I do thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the inspiration, creativity and sharing you do throughout the month with MIM’s and posts in the forum. I’m looking forward to the coming year!

  • 206
    Kathy Mc says:

    OMG, I was so VERY excited when I first read that all the Design Team members were staying on at PTI. We’ve become so “attached” to them from the Forum and their blogs. Their creations, including Nichole’s, are bar none superior and tops in the industry and so inspirational to everyone’s style. PTI leads the trends with their new stamps, dies and colors. Let me just add, I love PTI. Just wish I had more $ to spend on each release. Keep up the great work! Oh, and Nichole, you & your DT write the best blog posts also ~ so enjoyable to read. Looking forward to another fabulous year ahead!

  • 211

    Thank you to all wonderful designers for all the inspiration provided the past years, I am a big fan since my first stamp set “in bloom”, and never stop loving PTI product since then. Oh ya, by the way, Betsy’s blog was the first blog I bumped into and that leads to my blogging journey, before that, I don’t even know what blogging is.
    I love that you have awesome challenge like make it monday, that is my favorite challenge and I learn a lot there, thanks!
    Congratulations on your anniversary and I know I will be loving every new release here!!!!!!

    So many different ways to use stamps and dies – and all are beautiful! Though I´m more of a CAS stamper and cardmaker, I do enjoy all the inspiration and all those wonderful ideas to use my stamps.
    Every time I look at all those ideas with old and new products, I enjoy my cardmaking even more.
    Thank you!

    WOW!! First off, I love the sneak peeks. Definitely want to see more of these stamp sets. Secondly, thanks design team for sharing your wonderful talent with all of us. I loved seeing your favorite creations. I was surprised that I did not recognize all of them, so that was a treat, like seeing them for the first time. And I was happy to see that some of the ones you guys picked as your favorite I would have picked as mine as well. Looking forward to another exciting year.

Your company is the BEST, your design team are creative GENIUSES, and I want to thank you so much for inspiring so many of us! Please don’t ever stop!

    HOLY STINK!! This is going to be one exciting release! I can’t wait:) I LOVED seeing the design teams favorites. Some of their favorites were my favorites too and there are some of my favorites that I’m surprised did not make their list. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder 😉

  • 226
    QP says:

    The great think about Paper Trey’s Design team is that there are a variety of styles presented each month. Even when a stamp set is not my favorite, someone on the DT will show me a way to use the set; that makes it a must have. Kudos to PTI for 6 years.

  • 227
    Cynthia Xavier says:

    First I want to thank all the designers for their inspirations, they are all FANTASTIC! I have to say that Betsy and Melissa inspire me the most. Betsy nailed it with the Flip-flop card, Love Potion Card, Sunshine Card, In the Meadow Pop-up (my favorite) and the Counting My Blessings. And Melissa, such a girly-girl. I love all the frill’s, glitter, ribbon, buttons and her attention to detail. A big THANK YOU to all the designers.

    I absolutely love the inspiration that the PTI design team offers up each month. I absolutely love Nichole, Dawn & Erin’s styles, and am still attempting to create that one layer *perfect* card style that Maile has mastered!

    Susan P says:

    The Papertrey DT is the reason I keep coming back to PTI – they always show us so many ways to use the same set of stamps each month. I love that they all have such different styles! And the fact that they are so real – being involved in the forum as much as they are is amazing – I can’t think of another stamp company where you can actually chat with the DT on the forum! Way to go ladies – you are appreciated!!!

However most of all I am blown away by Betsy’s ingenuity, design acumen and all-round brilliant-ness. Thank you very much, I always gain so much inspiration from you.

    I am always so inspired by the design team. Sometimes I already know that I want/need a set before I see what they make with it. But other times they just blow me out of the water. They will take a set that I was certain I did NOT need, and use it in such a way that it flies right to the top of my list!! In my mind that is truly inspiring:)

    thank you to all of the design team for sharing their creativity. they are all amazing, they always show different ways of using a stamp set that i never would have thought of, they can take a stamp set that when i first see it i’ll think “i don’t need that” then when they’re done the set becomes a “must have.” you are all so appreciated.

  • 496
    Dawn H says:

    I just want to thank the amazing design team. About a year ago I became interested in card making and stamping and I found papertrey. I think I read every one of Nichole’s blog posts and saw so many inpirational projects on it from all design team members. I started ordering stamps, and with the help of all the inspirational cards & projects on the blog, I was able to start creating. I finally have enough skills to start branching off into my own ideas, but I really couldn’t have done it without the inspiration from the amazing design team. Thank you!

Each member of the design team approaches their work from different perspectives which really shines through in their work. We, the customer’s, benefit by getting to see all the possibilities of each stamp set. Then you throw in the color combos! Always a treat to see how each design team member uses the new releases…keep ’em coming!

    What can I say about the PTI design team? They are simply the BEST!! No other stamp company has close to the talent that PTI does. I can’t wait, month after month, to see what these girls come up with. Scrolling through each of their blogs is like flipping through the best craft magazines. They are so inspiring (and enabling)!! 🙂 They are so varied in their styles, but equally as stunning. Thank you for all the years of inspiration you have given us!

    Jade says:

    I’m so excited to see what the new sets will be like for this release! I’m already intrigued with the peeks. I’m not sure I can say enough good things about the design team you have. I follow their blogs and I am always beyond inspired with what they come up with but truly they seem like the sweetest ladies. Having spent time on the Papertrey Forum’s I am always touched at the sweet things they have to say. I’ve gathered so much information about stamping and crafting from them but they always seem to have great ideas and suggestions about other things too (i.e. books, movies, etc). So thanks to the design team for being so talented, so sweet and so down to earth. I’d have coffee with you gals any time! 😉

    Although I’m a CAS gal, it’s great to see all different styles on the design team. So much opportunity for new ideas and growth. PTI is my #1 single source for inspiration, and is what really pushed me into card-making from scrapbooking. It was at CHA 2010 or 2011, the last year you were in Chicago. All your samples projects totally blew me away. I had no idea people created like that! Happy anniversary!!

I personally believe this is the most awesome & talented team in the Papercrafting world. The best part about this team is the diversity. While I may be drawn to the style of some more than others, it’s actually those others that help me to step outside my comfort zone on occasion. And for the ones I am more drawn to, they have helped me tremendously in defining my own style & getting better and better. Thank You Ladies!!!!

    Marcie Rhys says:

    Your design team is the best in the business. The breath of styles is dizzying. I am particularly amazed by the creative offerings for stamp sets, even if a designer does not have a degree in art. (Degrees are a bit over valued in art, I think. Some of the most spectacular art comes from those who have had many other paths in thier lives.)

    Nichole is a true visionary. The completeness of her designs make them the most useable of anyone’s. Every detail is fully thought through. She really spoils us for any other company’s designs.

    Betsy Veldman I would follow to the ends of the earth. Not only is her design sense off the charts, she has a sophisticated sense of color and fun. Her use of many sets together, really plays up how well your products work together. I will have forgotten about a set that intrigued me; Betsy will pull it out and use it in a novel way; bam – back into my cart it goes. She is also the most generous of souls when it comes to teaching, and leaving messages to those who have commented.

    Your entire team is amazing. I could go on all day. You have all worked your socks off, and it shows. You all really are the making of Papertrey. Thank you for choosing to share your incredible talents with us.

  • 620 says:

    Thank you Design Team for your great inspiration all year! I am always amazed with the ideas that you come

THANK YOU so, so much ladies for all your energies month after month! It’s truly inspiring and encourages me to not only try new things outside of my comfort zone, but also to expand my style and improve my abilities. You all ROCK!! 🙂

    I just love PTI!!! I am a huge fan of dies, and love how many coordinating and stand alone dies you have. Of course, I wouldn’t have near as many or use them in fun ways without the design team. I’m so grateful for the joy and the sense of fulfillment I’m able to get when I complete a project inspired by things I’ve learned over the years from all of you. How did we live without blogs and the ability to share. I feel like we’re all friends, even though we’ll probably never meet and I’ve only left some comments here and there. I’ve laughed, cried, rejoiced, and mostly looked on in amazement at the talent that you share with us, you’re stalkers 🙂
    Thank you and I’m excited for another great year!!

You are one talented bunch and though I tend to be a clean and simple girl, I am inspired by you all. You have encouraged me to step outside my creative box many times!

    I am inspired just about every day by at least one of the PTI designers, and a lot of days by just about all of them! There is so much talent on your team that it’s impossible to not be inspired and I appreciate all the hard work (and FUN!) that each one of you bring! Thank you, thank you!!

    Thank you PTI and Design Team members for 6 wonderful years. I can’t start my day without checking your blog for new ideas and creations; I recommend you to all my stamping friends.
    Your line of dies has totally revolutionized how I approach card-making and gift giving. The variety of styles is another important aspect that makes PTI so successful and endearing. I feel I know the DT gals and can even guess (most of the time) who made a particular project without first looking at the name because of their ‘signature style’.
    Looking forward to years of creativity from PTI!

    A great big thanks to the design team they continue to inspire me each and every month. I just saw this contest, I must have missed this in my hosting responsibilities during the past week. Out of town guests, they love Florida. A special Happy Anniversary to Papertrey Ink and everyone involved. Now I better make my list since I don’t have time to make a project, although I have never won anything and probably won’t start now.

    Thank you Design Team. My best friend and fellow papercrafter passed away last year. We used to do our PTI orders together and email back and forth about the wonderful design team projects. Before my friend passed away, I was working on a card design for her sister’s Christmas cards. I found inspiration in one of Erin Lincoln’s projects using a PTI die, which we both loved. I made 40 of the cards, using a piece of embossed PTI blue shimmer paper which my friend gave me. Everyone receiving one of these cards felt her presence in it. It was a blessing to all.
