Stamp-a-faire 2014, Tropical Teal + FREE Stamps for a Year Contest!

By February 7, 2014General

Are you ready for some more anniversary fun today?  Hold onto your hats (…errrr, stamps!) because this going to be a fun one!


We are excited to share a few details about Stamp-a-faire 2014 today!  Pack your bags as you virtually get to travel through time with the Papertrey Team and your stamping friends from around the world!  This year’s online event will be all about exploring different eras througout history!  Each of the designers will delve into their favorite eras and adapt inspiration from that time period into today’s tools and techniques.  Think of all the elegance of the Victorian Era to the art deco designs of the Roaring Twenties and even the mod looks from the 1960’s.  We will be highlighting music and other trends from each era as well, so it will be a fun and inspirational experience EVERYONE can participate in for FREE!

In case you missed the festivities from our online event last year, here is a short video showcasing a brief summary of the fun we had and the types of things you can look forward to this year!


Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 23rd, 2014 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 2014!

  • A world-wide online event bringing Papertrey fans from around the globe together.
  • An exclusive suitcase full of creative goodness will be available for purchase as a kit so you have everything you need to participate on the big day!
  • 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.
  • 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!



After seven years in business, warehouse space has become a premium!  Take a look at a few of these shots I took with my phone the last time I visited this fall! 


Which is why moving forward we need to be wary of how we fill the remainder of our space!  This year we are going to try something new in regards to releasing new colors.  We will be initially introducing just the cardstock, pattern packs and ink in the new hues, with the possibility of other coordinating products coming in the future after the popularity of the color is established.  This will give us the opportunity to release more colors in the three basic products you use most.

Tropical Teal

This month we are thrilled to introduce you to Tropical Teal!  Something everyone has been waiting for!  Unfortunately, the ink will not be arriving in time for this months release, but we wanted to go ahead and make the cardstock available for sale this month.  We are optimistic that the Tropical Teal ink will arrive for a release in March.

Color comparison

This new color is luxuriously rich and is the perfect hue to fall right in between Pinefeather and Hawaiian Shores.  It will be a wonderful addition to your collection and I know you will love using it in your projects!


I am pleased to announce our annual “Year of Free Stamps” Contest.  As tradition holds, one lucky winner will receive monthly shipments after every release containing all of the newly released stamp sets in 2014!  This can easily amount to over 150 stamp sets total throughout the year! Imagine never having to worry about choosing what stamps to cut out of your cart because of budget constraints.  You will get every stamp set, every release February 2014 through January 2015.  

To enter this contest, you will just need to enter your information within the appropriate data base on our website which will be accessible through a link on the front page of the store.  

You can access the data base to enter this contest directly HERE.

A winner will be formally announced on the front page of the website on release night (February 15th), after 10pm EST.  Only one entry per person is permitted.  Entries must be received before 7am EST, February 15th, 2014 in order to qualify.


Welcome too our first ever Timer Challenge, in honor of the *time travel* theme for Stamp-a-faire this year. You are encouraged to grab a timer and get creative!

  • You have 7 minutes to grab 7 supplies to use on your card.  This needs to include your ink, paper and stamps too, so maybe you should be sure to grab the basics first and go from there!  (You do not need to count adhesive as one of your limited supplies.)
  • Then create a quick card in 17 minutes or less using the supplies you selected!

It will be so fun to see what you can come up with!  Perhaps use this opportunity to use a stamp set that hasn’t seen ink yet!


1. Create a new project that uses the Timer Challenge guidelines outlined above.  You can still enter the contest just by leaving a comment (see details below).

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

3. Upload a photo of your project to your blog, online gallery or any other photo-hosting site (such as photobucket or flickr).

4. Add the direct link to your project on our InLinkz list below.

5. You may create as many projects as you like for the challenge, but each project should have a separate link.

6.  And/or you can leave a comment here to be eligible to win.  Tell us what you think about this year’s Stamp-a-faire theme!  What is your favorite era in history that you would like to see represented at our online event this summer?   Only one comment per person please. (Just click the small “comments” link in blue beside the date in the footer of this post.  If you are reading this as an email subscription, be sure to click through to the actual blog to leave an eligible comment)

    Love the SAF theme this year. What fun is in store for us! I am torn – Antebellum, Victorian, the 20’s and then the 60’s. I am a child of the 60’s and that era holds a special place in my heart. Flower Power, Beatles, British Invasion, love it all. Can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with for this. And am loving the Tropical Teal. Yummy!

    Woo Hoo! Another fun time for my birthday weekend…how appropriate that the theme is ‘time traveler!’ JUST.SO.EXCITED.

    My favorite era in time is THE FUTURE! Could be so much fun to explore what’s next building something completely new with what we have to work with.

    Thanks for your continued inspiration. I may not have found you 7 years ago, but you have certainly been a significant part of my creative life since I happened along your and your DT’s blogs! Happy anniversary!

    Cynthia Tucker says:

    Stamp-A-Faire 2014 is going to be terrific – I love my music! If I were to create a challenge, I would select the 70’s. I was recently reminded of how much fun it was when Daft Punk won album and record of the year at the Grammy’s for their song “Get Lucky.” One of their You Tube videos is all about the Soul Train dancers and boy is it fun to watch – those high-waisted bell bottoms were quite the rage! Looking forward to seeing what the designers come up with. BTW, I’m also looking forward to that Tropical Teal. C.

    Definitely the Tudor era – kings & queens, beautiful fabrics, LOTS of mixing of rich deep colors

  • 39
    Cindy says:

    Love that new color! It’s hard to pick a particular era, but I would have to say the 30’s and 40’s for papercrafting would be fun.

    What era? That’s a tough one as far as crafting goes……I like the 1950 era I think! I am thinking of tablecloths and aprons.

    Very excited about the theme for Stamp-A-Faire this year! I think my favorite era would have to be the 1950’s era. I love the florals, the colors and the hometown family feel of that time…at least that’s my idea of it anyway. πŸ˜‰

    Polly says:

    The new colors are so pretty!!! I’m very interested in the theme of the different eras.

  • 62
    JeanFB says:

    I adore the theme this year, especially as I love all things vintage! I love the era from about 1900-1920, when there was so much innovation, and overseas travel meant that more and more we were influenced by European cultures and fashions. A bit of steampunk fits in well during this era too – so many possibilities!

  • 63
    Vickie R. says:

    Ooh, I like the time traveler theme! That holds so many design possibilities!

  • 64
    Suzette says:

    This year’s Stamp-a-faire theme sounds interesting. I would love to see designs incorporating vintage looks of the 20’s through the 50’s. I am hopelessly stuck in the past!

  • 65
    Anja curvers says:

    Love the SAF theme and I am anxious to see what you have in store for us. I am fond of the 60’s. And wow I know for sure that new color will be my favorite can’t wait to try it.
    Love the new challenge but I first have to clean my workspace to compete otherwise I won’t be able to find stuff within 7 min.

  • 66

    Loved seeing some photos from behind the scenes. When you love a company this much, you are also curious for how things are made, well, I am, hi hi. The new color looks super gorgeous!! Will be looking forward to that, for sure!!

    adele says:

    So much fun stuff going on here — I find myself eagerly looking forward to each morning’s post! Stamp-a-Fair sounds like fun and something I would like to participate in. I hope the kits will be affordable. The 60’s era would offer plenty of inspiration — tie dye, bold prints, flowers, fringe and beads?

    Linda in NC says:

    Thanks for a peek inside the warehouse. Love the new color.

  • 69
    Jilly says:

    So many wonderful era’s … but I think I’d like late 1800’s, after the Civil War. Why? I haven’t a clue, LOL! That just seems to be the era I find myself in when reading for the fun of it.

  • 70
    MelGerb says:

    I’m looking forward to August 23rd! My favorite era is the opulence of the Russian Court in the late 1800s. Look at pictures of the interiors of the palaces and mansions – enough design inspiration to keep busy for a very long time!

  • 71
    jan metcalf says:

    Old Hollywood glamour is very popular right now, why not travel with the movie stars? Oscars, famous moments, movie sets, limos, there are many icon and sentiment possibilities!

    Love it!!! Looking forward to this year’s event!!! Totally love the Art Deco 20’s-30’s, I can only imagine what you ladies could do with it! :). Thanks for the opportunity…oh, and the teal? GORGEOUS! Probably my new favorite πŸ™‚

  • 73
    Victoria h says:

    My favourite era is …Tudors because I love Shakespeare, the beautiful handwriting and Henry the 8th made it an interesting time for England!

  • 74
    Sandy Kay says:

    I can see a new warehouse in the future! Love that teal – it’s beautiful!

  • 75
    Lilian says:

    I would love see ancient Roman or Greek inspired cards just for fun. If it’s too impossible, theme cards from the 1890s to the 1900s would be fantastic too.
    Thank you for the new CS color and I think it’s a very wise decision to leave out the coordinating stuff like buttons and ribbons for now. I don’t use them anymore and just love any colored CS you release.
    I love your SAF travel theme too! Very original!

  • 76
    Leigh Penner says:

    How is it that PTI can make me look forward towards the end of summer?! I have really enjoyed participating in SAF and this year will be no exception!

    Love this year’s Stamp-A-Faire theme! The victorian era would have to be one of my favorites. I love the big old houses and lots of ruffles & lace.

    Love the theme for Stamp-a-Faire! What a great way to learn more about design through the eras. I am a rebel at heart and intrigued by Early Modern, 1900 – 1940. Thank you for my new favorite color, Tropical Teal! Luscious…can’t wait to add it to my collection. Happy Anniversary, PTI.

  • 89
    Kailash says:

    Oh my the stamp-a-faire sounds so exciting. Travel is such a great theme, would be fun to see the Victorian era, those were some difficult times to live in but such an elegance as well!!!

  • 90

    Allison T. says:

    Stamp-a-Faire is such a super event! What a great theme! I can’t wait to see the madmen era and the 1960! Such fun design concepts from that time!

    Thank you so much for the opportunity (once again) to win a year’s full of free stamp sets – the most generous giveaway I know of. Love the theme for Stamp-a-faire. Your warehouse may be full – but it sure looks neats and organized. πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the anniversary fun.

    Wendy Gould says:

    Teal!!!! Yay! So excited for Stamp-A-Faire too.

  • 94
    Dolly says:

    FANTASTIC!! Loving the theme!! I think my favorite would be the Victorian era and would be elegant and lovely. Then again…the 60s/70s could come out with some very funky and fun stuff too. πŸ˜€ Either way it’s sure to be a BLAST (from the past!) πŸ˜€ can’t wait!

  • 95
    peg says:

    It is so hard to decide on an era that I like the best. If I had to choose a favorite it would be the Mayan culture. But I kind of think native american culture would be a close second. Thanks for this fabulous opportunity.

  • 96
    Viki says:

    That will be a fun Stamp-a-Faire. Very exciting!

  • 97

    Pippa67 says:

    I just love Stamp a faire. I live in Holland so it is so easy to join the fun. I love this years idea. I really like the ” simply Jane” time. Maybe some houses in that style or vehicles or…. ah well.

  • 101
    Shelly says:

    My favorite error in history would be the Victorian error. I could definitely see some cards full of lace, pearls and charm modeled after this time period. The Stamp-A-faire sounds very interesting and I can’t wait to see what activities you come up with. You guys are the best at knowing how to get those creative juices flowing!

  • 102
    annheidel says:

    Renaissance/medieval or the Roaring 20’s. Sounds like a fun theme! I already put it on my calendar. πŸ™‚

  • 103
    Cecilie says:

    I’ve added Stamp-a-faire to my calendar and I hope to be able to keep the date free from other obligations. I loved participating last year!

    My favorite historic era… Well, as a historian it is like asking me to chose a favorite child. But Early Modern Europe (1350-1600) holds a special place in my heart.

  • 104
    Jeni Jenne says:

    This is a tough one! I guess, I would have to say the 40’s because of the fashion of that era.

    Ngan R. says:

    Love that Tropical Teal color–so vibrant! I think the Stamp-a-faire theme is going to be an interesting one–I can’t wait to see what eras we go through and how that is represented on cards!

    Pat Q says:

    Looking forward to Stamp-a-Faire. One of my favorite periods of time is the early 20th century, the time of Anne of Green Gables.

    I’m also looking forward to using the Tropical Teal color, especially with fall and Christmas cards.

    merryf says:

    What a fabulous theme for this year’s SAF! I can’t wait to see what you do with the Art Deco era, that’s my favorite! The new teal is stunning; can’t wait to create with it! What a wonderful anniversary this is!

  • 110

    Looking forward to seeing what 2014 Stamp-a-Faire theme has in store! The new color is great. One of my favorite eras I would like to see is the 50’s! Thanks for all the inspiration and great products!

  • 112
    Laurie says:

    What a fun plan. I really prefer the clean lines of art deco, but enjoy dabbling in collage and, water color and vintage look, among others. It depends on my mood.

  • 113
    Dana W says:

    Love the new color! Wish I could do these contests but I don’t have time to get a card done, photographed, edited and posted all in the same day!

  • 114
    Melanie MacKenzie says:

    Stamp-s-Faire sounds fabulous. It would be a tough choice for my favourite era … a tie between Victorian and the time of Jane Austen. Love them both. Thanks so much for a chance to win. Cheers.

  • 115

    Oh – LOVE that new color! Just gorgeous!!! And that sounds like a super fun challenge! LOVE setting a timer while I craft!

  • 116
    Peggy says:

    If I can only pick one era I’d say Art Deco of the 20s. But the 60s, or classic 40s sure would be fun, too!

  • 117
    Marcie B says:

    I would love to see the 20s, 30s, and 40s represented. I feel like this is an era I should have been born in. People always tell me I’m an old soul.

  • 118
    Sue (suen) says:

    The SAF event should be a lot of fun! I look forward to seeing what each of the designers pick for their favorite era! For me it would be the 60’s–I love tie-dye! The new color looks wonderful and thank you PTI for all of the great products you produce!

  • 119

  • 120
    Julie Call says:

    2014 is going to be so exciting! LOVE the new color, and I already have Stamp-A-Faire on my calendar! I’d be happy seeing any era, but I’d probably go with 40s and 50s, or way back to Greek and Roman architecture just for fun! Thanks PTI!

  • 121
    Fungsi says:

    I love the time travel concept – and I like the styles of many eras. It’s too hard to choose, so I guess variety is my wish!

    And thanks for sending the emails about your 7th anniversary….

  • 124
    Linda Hedfelt says:

    The Stamp-a-faire concept sounds like it is going to be so much fun! It is hard to choose one era in history, because I like so many, but I would have to say Victorian.

  • 125

    What fun – unfortunately I have to work late tonight and may not be able to participate – perhaps I ‘ll be lucky with a comment…..Love the new color! Favorite area – that is difficult – perhaps the 20ies or fifties!

  • 126
    Janet B. from WV says:

    Tropical Teal is beautiful! I’m really hoping to see some Art Deco or Victorian style projects for the time travel theme – can we fast forward to August?!?!

  • 129

    Wow! I love the new color! This years stamp-a-faire sounds like so much fun. I guess my favorite time in history would be the late 1800s.

  • 130
    Anna says:

    Such a great theme! I think a “future” era would be fun to see. I’d love to see the different cards people would come up with – they could all be so very different. πŸ™‚

    Dragica says:

    Love the idea of time traveling. My favorite era is Regency.

  • 133
    Diana K says:

    Love the SAF theme for this year! My favourite era of history (for stamping purposes and just for the sheer fun of it) would have to be the 60s and the mod look/free love frenzy. Not to forget the amazing music of this era!

  • 134
    Joyce says:

    I actually got a tear watching that video! It had been such a long previous year. I need a new PTI shirt for this years photos! I can’t wait! Yay!

    Such a beautiful color to add! Very excited!

    Boy would I love to spend 7 minutes speed shopping in that warehouse! Amazing! I would love to see how the warehouse grew over the past 7 years.

    Fun challenge! Good thing we have sketches and recipes to work from!

    I can not wait to craft today! I think PTI festivities are my favorite times to take mini vacations to join the fun!

    Another awesome give away! So generous! I’m so glad PTI is doing so well!

  • 135

    Time travel – what a fun theme for this year’s Stamp-A-Faire!! I don’t have a favourite time period but it will be exciting to see how each of the design team interprets different eras. The new teal colour looks gorgeous too!!

  • 136

    Love this years Stamp-A-Faire them. Who doesn’t love to travel even virtually! I think I was a cowgirl in a former life. I am also loving the new color Tropical Teal – can’t wait to add it to my collection.

  • 138

    Interesting theme for this years stamp a fair. The date works out better for me-haven’t been able to participate past couple of years because it coincided with my grand baby’s birthday. Also, the new color looks yummy!

  • 139

  • 142
    Donna Gourley says:

    I’m not familiar with stamp-a-faire, but it sounds interesting! I think the popularity of Downton Abbey would make me choose the 1920’s as an era gone by to revisit.

  • 143
    Angela NJ says:

    I think my favorite part of this post might have been the peeks inside the warehouse! Perhaps a little video tour on Monday it Monday would be fun – instead of making a card we’re making an order. As for time travel, I’m thinking it would be fun to have some patterns for the cover plate pieces (hexagons, circles, etc) that mimicked textile prints from the different eras.

  • 144
    Heather S. says:

    That sounds like fun! Can’t wait since last years stamp-a-faire was so fun! Hoping to see some inspiration from Regency England!

  • 145

  • 150
    Cindy H. says:

    What a wonderful new color. Stamp-a-Faire sounds terrific! I like simple elegance so I pick the era of Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn (mid to late 50’s early 60’s). They were both so stylish and elegant.

  • 151
    Deann Donohue says:

    I love the Teal!! What a beautiful color!! I’m excited about Stamp-A-Faire – I’ve never participated before!!
    I think the 1980’s would be a GREAT era since it’s very in style right now. Bright colors & funky designs! Can’t wait to see what you all create!!

  • 152

    The new ink color is sooo beautiful!! Love the very cool idea for Stamp A Faire, too! Always so many exciting and wonderful things to look forward to with PTI! Thanks so much for the awesome anniversary festivities and all the chances to play along and win!

    LOVE the theme, can’t wait! Also, can’t wait for summer, too … it’s -2 actual temp and much lower with windchill here in Chicago today.

  • 154
    Maureen (Moe) says:

    I’ll be interested to see… My favorite era is the 80’s
    But I’m not sure how I would stamp it (other than neon colors)
    It will be a great learning experience to see east others create in all eras.

  • 155
    Joy H says:

    What an exciting event this will be! It will be hard to wait. I, like many, love the Victorian era. The romance, frills, lace, feathers and layers of that era intrigue me.

  • 156
    Melissa Sibert says:

    So excited about Stamp a Fair. I really like the new color reveal. I hope to join in the timer challenge today too. My favorite era has been the Civil War era in the Old South–fancy plantations, ruffled dresses and petticoats, southern charm and manners. I like early to mid 1900s styles too.

  • 157
    Becky M. says:

    What a gorgeous new color! Love it!

  • 158

  • 163
    Cindy O says:

    Love the new Tropical Teal color! My favorite era visually would be the Impressionist painters late 1800s, and then Art Deco.

  • 164
    Jessica Reid says:

    I love the new time-travel idea … I personally am a big fan of the Greco-Roman period! It may be less stamp-versatile than the Victorian era, but it still has an air of romance that surrounds it. Keep up the great work PTI team!!!

  • 165
    Deanne Rehmer says:

    Just reserved the date with the group we participated with last year. Can’t wait to have another fun day with a travel theme.

  • 166
    Joyce says:

    I don’t know how to edit, but I forgot to post my favorite era. I’m going to say the 1800’s. I know that seems odd because it’s not as defined as other times. But it was clean and simple, and there was the start of the Philly Flower Show which is amazing! So a tribute to all things floral thru the years would be awesome!

    I love the theme and have no doubt the inspiration and challenges will be awesome!

  • 167

    Cindy Otto says:

    The theme for Stamp-a-Faire sounds like soooo much fun! My favorite era would have to be the 1950’s. I love anything vintage and that era had solo many darling features. Would love to see more stamps from that time frame.

  • 172
    Sue D says:

    I like the time traveler theme. I would like to see projects from pioneer era.

  • 173
    Diana F says:

    I think this year’s Stamp a Faire theme is so cool and very challenging for the designers. I have always been in love with the American west era in history (1860’s to 1900)

  • 189
    Cheryl B. says:

    Let’s see. My favorite era for clothes is the 40’s. My favorite era for music is the 60’s

    Time travel-how exciting!! Many historical eras offer great appeal, from ancient history to the Elizabethan era, to glimpses of the future. It would be fun to explore the world of fairy tales, maps, architecture and art history.

  • 216
    Nancy says:

    Time Travel is an incredible theme. I’m looking forward to all of the creative ways the DT will take on this challenge. My favorite era in history is the westward expansion of America, but I think it might be hard to depict in paper crafting. So my suggestion is the 1950s. There are so many ways you can go with that decade.

  • 217
    Claudia L. says:

    I’m so excited about SAF and the new color, I think Tropical Teal will be my favorite color!!

  • 224
    Tosha says:

    Fun, fun, fun! On the light side the Era of the 1950’s through the 1960’s had the best TV. On the serious side the days of independence are most important to all of us and those continue through every era. I like the one I’m living.

    Linda Lander says:

    ….mmm..choosing a favorite era. I would have to say it is a tie between the 20’s and the 5o’s… each with unique innovations and influences on our society. Love, love the idea of TIME TRAVEL. What a wonderful way to remember and/or learn about the impact different generations and happenings has on “we, the people”.

    Can’t wait to be involved.

    JennyR. says:

    Some fun and funky 80’s designs would be neat, but I also wouldn’t mind some brave knights rescuing a fair maiden from the fire breathing dragon. (Or maybe just playing with a cute baby dragon?)

    I’m looking forward to Stamp-a-faire. My favourite era would Art Nouveau. Anything reminiscent of Aubrey Beardsley would be lovely. Although Art Deco comes in a close second.

  • 287

    Love the new Teal color. I’ve been wanting some paper yo home with Hawaiian Shores! Stamp-a-faire sounds like it will be a blast, so I am hoping that the 60’s will be represented! I grew up in the 60’s, and it was an awesome time to be alive!

    Looking and following the 7 years celebration everyday makes me a little sad as I just left home on Tuesday feb 5 for New York City and then to Asia, I have no supplies with me and not in my craft room, all I can do is drool over the “daily celebration news” here and wish I could be home to join in all the fun! Happy Anniversary though, I am excited about the event in August, I’ll make sure I don’t travel around that time for sure!!!!

  • 318
    Kathy Mc says:

    Never really gave it much thought as to my favorite era, but guess I’d say the 50’s and 60’s (mainly because history was not my favorite subject). Eager to see what Stamp-a-Faire brings though as you always knock it out of the park. Tropical Teal is just the color we need to add an extra punch to our creations ~ love it!

  • 319
    Susan says:

    Wow, very exciting event! I have never joined in Stamp-a-Faire and I hope to be able to experince it this year. I love the idea of “Time Travel” and am exciting about the new teal color! My favorite era for this project would be Medieval. Thanks for being soooo creative!

    Laura K says:

    Time travel sounds fun! My favorite era is probably the 30’s. I know the depression era is depressing for a lot of people but to me it was an epic lesson in what is important in life and how we should all live all the time. People who lived through the depression have my utmost respect. Thank you for the chance to win!

  • 341
    Dori says:

    I’m liking the theme for this years stamp affair. I think the 20’s would be a fun era to play around with. Lots of bling and fringe. Feathers were also pretty popular then so the Feather set from last month I think will go well with that period. I’m loving the new color and so excited for another fabulous year at PTI!

  • 342

    Renae Roberts says:

    I love the idea for the theme. I will be great to see how the design team uses different eras for inspiration. As for a favorite era, that is a hard choice to make. I guess I will choose a classic era like the 30’s or 40’s.

  • 346
    BarbGhig says:

    I think the theme for this year’s Stamp-a-faire is such a great idea, Nichole! I’m looking forward to the 60’s theme, as that was a very special and fun time for me (dating myself – lol)!

  • 348
    Cris G. says:

    What a fun and versatile theme for this year’s Stamp-a-Faire. I can’t say I have one favorite era… my love for History doesn’t allow me of having just one era :). Although, if I really have to choose one… the 60’s are my decade, I love the music, the love, the flowers and the important ideological revolution that brought us, especially to women, more freedom of thought and speech and, ultimately, autonomy.
    Thanks for all these chances to win.

  • 349
    Tammy says:

    So much excitement going on with the anniversary celebrations at PTI and now Stamp-a-faire to look forward to also, wow!!

    Pamela A says:

    Love the theme for SAF – this should be quite fun! My pick would be the Victorian era – full of fancy scripts, flourishes, Old English engraving. Everything was fancy and beautiful especially for those who had $$$.

  • 354

  • 355
    Lisa K says:

    I think the theme for the Stamp-a-Faire is terrific. Wouldn’t it be fun to actually be able to travel through time? I love so many eras. I think maybe the “retro art” era of the 1940s & 1950s would be interesting. I’m loving the new teal color. πŸ™‚

  • 356

    Love the new color!!! And what a fun theme for the stamp-a-faire! I can imagine a asymmetric 80s card already πŸ™‚

    Mutzy Mia says:

    The new theme sounds like a fun one. There is a couple different eras I enjoy. I enjoy the high society of the early 1900’s and I enjoy the wild west era…talk about a contrast:-). When I was a little girl I used to dream and sketch “towns” from the old west and think about starting up a ghost town for people to visit how life used to be.

    I love the theme of the Stamp Affair! My favorite era of history is the mid-1700s in Scotland because of the novel Outlander by Diana Gabaldon which is currently being filmed into a 16 episode mini-series on the STARZ network. Epic love story!

    Susan in AK says:

  • 376
    Cassi says:

    Great theme! I don’t know much about a lot of the styles, but can’t wait to see what the design team comes up with. I think Art Deco may be my favorite one to play along with.

    I too am a child of the sixties. While I love where technology has taken us, sometimes I miss the simplicity of that time. I love the new color!

    Bernadette M says:

    I have to admit that when I saw “time travel,” I thought Dr. Who, TARDIS and Daleks. Since I don’t think that’s what you have in mind, I’ll have to pick the Roaring 20’s as the period that interests me most.

  • 382
    Rachael Burdick says:

    I think this year’s theme sounds really fun! The era I’d like to try to create from would probably be the 80’s or the Mad Men era, because it’s completely out of my comfort zone. πŸ™‚

  • 383
    berryblue says:

    My favorite era is the 1800s. I should have been a pioneer! When I think of card elements that might reflect that era, I think of quilting and calico and teacups and homey rustic touches. I don’t know if the pioneering era will be represented in Stamp-a-Faire 2014, but I can’t wait to see what the design team has to show us!

    I think the time traveling theme for this year’s Stamp-a-Faire is great! I was born in ’77, so I think the disco era should be represented. I can tell by my parents photos and the music that it was a really good time!

    Travelling through time sounds like such a fun way to play with stamps I’m most intrigued as to what the Stamp a faire sets is going be! I’d love to go really back the Renaissance would be a great one. Love the idea of new colours too!!

  • 413
    Margaret R says:

    What an interesting concept! I can’t wait to see what you have planned for Stamp-A-Faire. My favourite era (actually a span of eras) is Georgian/Victorian/Edwardian – the Industrial Revolution, electricity, the first car!

    The Stamp-a-faire theme is just wonderful. No way can I pick just one!! I am a HUGE history buff and LOVE all the different era’s. So this SAF is right up my alley!

    My only hope is we can order the kit in July. I will be “traveling” myself, on a two month trip starting Aug 1. Even though I cannot join in on the actual day, it would be fun to come home and play with all the goodies.

    Alos, IΒ΄m amazed at all the clever and pretty cards that were made in just 17 minutes – IΒ΄m not htat fast a cardmaker, sometimes a card sits on my desk a day or two until I decide what is missing – so IΒ΄m no candidate for “quickies”.

  • 468
    Crisanne D. says:

    I think the time travel theme will be so much fun! I love the innovation that occurred just at the turn of the century, 1880-1910. The railroad, the beginning of silent films, the first automobiles, and still horse and buggy.

    Such a clever theme for Stamp-a-faire 2014! I’m feeling the 60’s era might be what speaks to me creatively. From vw bugs, daisy chains and the Beatles rock-n-roll influence it just has so many possibilities. Can’t wait until August!

    I LOVE the theme for this year’s SAF…
    it’s beyond fabulous!
    Hoping my plans won’t get changed this year!
    And my favorite era…
    I have 2 and they’re really close together…
    the 20’s:
    feathers and fringe…
    The Charleston…
    And probably my favorite by just a hair…
    Victory Gardens…
    war bonds…
    Rivet Rosie…
    American Pride.
    I love it all.
    The hair…
    the music…
    but most especially the fashions!! πŸ™‚

    Love the 2014 Stamp-a-Faire theme. I like the elegance of the 1800’s and the funkyness of the 60’s. I think timing oneself to get a card done is a great challenge. lol – won’t work for me right now, I would be unable to gather my supplies in 17 minutes, however, I plan on taking this challenge one day!
    The cards in the gallery are so inspiring, how did you get such beautiful cards done in 17 minutes and less???

    The “Time Travel” theme is intriguing; I can’t wait to see what exciting activities you have for us! I love the British Renaissance … so much beautiful literature (sonnets), drama (Shakespeare), and theology (the King James Bible). A drama / theater stamp set would be quite fun. Thank you!

    Deb Hudson says:

    You have such great ideas for Stamp-a-faire and Time Traveler will be no exception.
    Hope the supplies come in a suitcase! Not sure which era would include the wild wild west. Part of me would love that we all rode horses everywhere. Maybe it is the late Victorian Age 18880’s. Love Tropical Teal.

    Ooh, I LOVE the idea of this year’s Stamp-a-Faire theme. Time travelling for design inspiration is a super idea! Let’s see, how about Georgian England? Or the Art Deco period, or even the French Impressionist movement? These are three of my favorites and I’m excited to see what everyone else dreams up!

  • 570
    KATHY H says:

    My favorite era for fashion was the sophisticated styles of the 40’s and also some of the fashions of the 50’s. I love the movie music of composers like Cole Porter.

    Maye M.L. says:

    Hopefully, I will be able to join this marvelous event in 2014. Traveling through time is quite the “journey”. It is funny how time works, though. I was really excited about working on the 7’/17′ challenge yesterday, however, time was not on my side. My philosophy of learning about history, personal and societal, is that we must remember and awe at the incredible things we have done and at those unspeakable ones too. We need to move forward, keep learning everyday, and indeed, make amends to such mistakes. Cheers to many, many more creative history to be made by you, and your incredible PTI team.

  • 594

    I’m very excited about the Stamp-a-Faire theme! I can’t wait to see what you’ve been dreaming up for us! I hope there are some stamps from the time of the Wild West or Anne of Green Gables, that’d be such a treat!

  • 595

  • 613
    Bonnie T. says:

    So loving the time travel theme for Stamp-A-Faire this year! I’m beyond excited! I love the 1940s era. Although it was during the height of World War II, there was a zest for color and life that was in such contrast to the destructive aspects of the war. Hollywood brought glamor to the silver screen, Jazz and Big Bands kept life fun and energized, and women were enthusiastic to contribute to the war effort and to prove what they were made of. I’ve also always loved Ancient Greece with their Gods and Goddesses, myths, architecture, sculpture, poetry, philosophy, and art. They had a desire to understand history and life. A passion for beauty and detail and knowledge.
