Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Lovely February Birthday Card

For this project I decided to pair up several of the new sets with a fresh spring color scheme, to help warm things up in this cold winter weather! 


I stamped several of the leaves from the new Leave It Be set, layering them in a collage style, using Spring Moss, Aqua Mist and Harvest Gold.  I then followed that up with the veins for each leaf in VersaMark which were heat embossed with White Filigree Embossing Powder.


For the sentiment, I started with a scalloped circle cut out with the Limitless Layers: 2-1/2" Circle die from Aqua Mist cardstock.  I then stamped it with the coordinating basic label image from the new Limitless Layers: Labels set in Aqua Mist ink.  I just LOVE how you can use this label image with both the decorative edged diws and the basic dies from each Limitless Layers die set.  It is such a beautiful way to set them off, and not to mention easy too!


I heat embossed the two parts of this sentiments from the new Birthday Classics: February with White Filigree Embossing Powder.  There is a beautiful stamp for the word "February" included in the stamp set, but I opted to mix things up just a bit and use the new Monthly Moments: February die with Harvest Gold cardstock instead.  Everything is adhered to a Spring Moss card front.

February Flowers Card

Another February birthday card here!  One of the wonderful things about Dawn's new Leave It Be set is that you can bring a completely different look and style to the previously released floral sets!  Here I have pulled out an old favorite, Beautiful Blooms.


I stamped each of the flowers twice using Summer Sunrise ink, stamping twice and rotating the stamp between impressions.  I am giving you a sneak peek at a new die today with these flower centers!  They were die-cut from Canyon Clay cardstock and tied in place with Rustic Cream Button Twine.


The leaves were stamped in Fine Linen with the gorgeous stitched veins in Classic Kraft.  As the finishing touch, a sentiment combination from Birthday Classics: February is added in Dark Chocolate.


Everything was mounted onto a Classic Kraft card base.  Imagine all of the color combinations you could use with this simple card layout!

Wish Big Eat Cake Card

Now for something a bit different, and definitely more bold.  This black and gray card is accented with bright punches of gold, perfect for celebrating a birthday!  You can barely see it in the photos, but I started with the small oval frame from Limitless Layers: Labels in True Black.  It's just a watermark, but it really helps to anchor the sentiment in real life.  The sentiment, also from Limitless Layers: Labels, was heat embossed with Gold Filigree Embossing Powder.


The edges of the Smokey Shadow card base were stamped with diagonal stripes using True Black ink and Background Basics: Diagonals Additions.  I cut the True Black card front a bit narrow and attached it to the card base using foam tape for dimension.

Gold stars

I diecut these gorgeous stars (more about them later in the week!!!) from gold shimmer cardstock and then pressed them into my VersaMark pad, heat embossing them with Gold Filigree Embossing Powder too.


The stars were adhered with a two-way glue pen, scattered up the card front around the sentiment.

February Birthday Blessings Card

I'm sure you won't mind if I share yet another floral card with you!  *wink*


I traced the Tipped Top die-cut onto the Rustic White card base and then stamped the flowers and leaves around the edge of the line.  The leaves are from the new Leave It Be set, and I stamped them in New Leaf, cleaned my stamp well and went back in and stamped them again in Soft Stone just slightly off from the original impressions.  It creates a subtle shadowed look.  The flowers are from Floral Fusion #4.  I added them with Tropical Teal and Hawaiian Shores.  The centers of the flowers are from Solid Stitches & Swirls.


I die-cut the Tipped Tops die from New Leaf cardstock and stamped this FABULOUS sentiment from Birthday Classics: February in Pinefeather.  For the record, I will be using Pinefeather a lot now that Tropical Teal is in town.  I just love them together!


I adhered the Tipped Tops die-cut in place with foam tape for dimension.

Butterfly Birthday Card

Now for the lovely Text Block Birthday die.  Cannot. Wait. For all of you to get to play with this!  So, so fun!!!  I started by stamping my background.  I used Melon Berry cardstock as my base and stamped several images from Beuatiful Butterflies using Canyon Clay, Berry Sorbet and Raspberry Fizz inks.


I then die cut the Melon Berry block with the Text Block: Birthday die, reserving the interior pieces.  I die-cut Rustic White cardstock and adhered it in the opening, putting the Melon Berry pieces back in place.  I left some of the tiny pieces out because I wanted to help draw attention to the dimension, keeps tings from being a bit too flat. This inlaid technique is just STUNNING with this die!  I wish you could see and touch this in person!

Butterfly detail

I stamped and cut out one of the small butterflies and added it to the side of the "B", finished with a tiny rhinestone.


You could create a similar card with nearly any solid stamp images and colors!

Birthday Text Card

The new Text Block: Birthday die was just screaming to be used on a window card!  I cut a rectangle from a Raspberry card front and stamped it with Background Basics: Super stripes in Fresh Snow.  I love adding stripes on the diagonal like this, just gives things a more modern & trendy twist.


The Text Block Birthday die was cut from Limeade Ice cardstock and adhered to a block of Clear Cardstock.  

Through window

It was then adhered in place with 1/8" Scor-tape over the window opening.

Interior window

These stars are scattered on the interior, which was lined with white.  


The stars were die-cut from Summer Sunrise cardstock and covered with Prisma Glitter.


I love how you can see them peeking through the window!

Our Story layout

As a little treat I saved for last, I have a few Monthly Moments layouts to share with you.  I started this new album just to hold photos from all of the fun things David and I do togehter, just the two of us.  They don't happen very often, but when they do I will love being able to put everything in one place so I can bring back the memories often.  This is the title page I created using several of the new products highlighted today.  This is a 3×4 vertical four pocket page protector.

Cover plate

I die-cut the Cover Plate: Circles from Simply Chartreuse cardstock can cut the corner to 3×4 to fit into a pocket.  I love the transparency of the design, giving a peek at the page underneath.  Looking forward to playing around with this technique with all of my other Cover Plates too!  The other two pockets were filled with Ocean Tides cards stamped with Background Basics: Super stripes using Fresh Snow ink.


I die-cut the Limitless Layers: 3-1/2" Oval from white cardstock and stamped it with the new Limitless Layers: Labels using Terracotta Tile ink.  I used the dotted lines stamp from the same set to add the journaling lines using Charcoal Palette ink.  I die-cut the Bookprint Alphabet letters from Classic Kraft cardstock three times and adhered & stacked them together to give them a bit of a chipboard look.  The new Leaves from Leave It Be were die-cut from Simply Chartreuse cardstock and the veins were heat embossed with Gold Filigree Embossing Powder.  I love how you can get a completely different look with these leaves by just using the die-cuts and veins together!

Memories captured

I cut a little strip of cardstock from Classic Kraft cardstock and stamped a phrase from the new Monthly Moments: Slide Frame set.  The ends were then trimmed with pinking shears.  I added a "stitched" look to either end by just doing some selective inking to the journaling lines stamp included in the Limitless Layers: Labels set.  This strip along with the oval label above it were adhered on TOP of the page protector with foam tape and Scor-tape.

This is the Best title page

For the second page, I used double 4×6 horizontal pocket protector.  A photo of us is added to the bottom pocket.

Circle label

I kept it simple when adding to it and just die-cut a Limitless Layers: 1-3/4" scalloped circle die, stamped with Ocean Tides using the coordinating label image from Limitless Layers: Labels.  The sentiment is from the same set, added in True Black.  I finished it with the date added in by hand.  A little thing to note, you don't always need to leave these labels whole.  Trim the side off to get different looks.

Slide frame


For the top portion, I started with a 4×6 piece of Classic Kraft cardstock, stamped with Polka Dot Basics in Fresh Snow.  The Monthly Moments: Slife Frame die was cut from Simply Chartreuse.  I trimmed a square of Clear Cardstock to fit behind it and stamped it with Irresistibly Ikat using White StazOn.    I cut and notched a slim strip of Canyon Clay cardstock and stamped it with a sentiment from the Monthky Moments: Slide Frame stamp set.  I adhered this across the frame.  The monograms were die-cut with the Bookprint Upper dies from Ocean Tides, adhered above and below the sentiment strip.  This entire frame was adhered on top of my page protector with foam tape.  I can already tell that I'm going to have a lot of fun with this Slide Frame die!!!

I hope you have enjoyed all the creations that I have shared with you today!  With several classic new products with a wide variety of applications, there's sure to be something here for everyone!  Did you have a favorite project or product from today's post?  We would love to hear your initial thoughts on everything we introduced!

    Wow amazing products once again. Love the idea of making a birthdaycard for PTI. I think I ” discovered” PTI in 2008 and I’m hooked ever since. Through your business I also have met several dear friends and one in particular which makes it possible that I always get my stamps and dies.

    I became a customer of PTI in 2011. I started card making after my wedding, as I wanted truly unique thank you notes, but after I found PTI, my projects were taken to a whole new level! Nichole and the DT have been so inspirational, but honestly, the products speak for themselves. They add the professionalism that I was looking for and couldn’t find in other companies’ products. Just the card stock alone would (almost) be enough! Happy birthday, PTI!

    While Feb. 2014 is PTI’s 7th anniversary, it marks my 3rd anniversary of being a PTI customer. I’ve been scrapbooking since May 2003 and when a fellow scrapbooking friend suggested I check out PTI, I didn’t know at the time that it would change my life! Through PTI I have discovered the joy of card making, playing along with MIMs & monthly blog hops, winning GCs, the friendship of other members on the forum, sneak peek weeks, countdowns, release night ordering, etc. I truly do love PTI!

    Taheerah says:

    I think it’s fair to say that PTI has had a significant impact on my papercrafting life since discovering you in 2009. But not necessarily the products, although I love my collection!

    The biggest impact has been the friends and relationships I have forged across the world as a result of sharing this common love. From the best friends I’ve made and met in person (and the wonderful first, in-person Stamp-A-Faire where I met so many of the DT and forum friends), to the ones I still know only virtually and hope to meet someday, this is the biggest gift I have received.

    You also helped springboard my career to become as successful a designer I am now – that wouldn’t have happened without your kind words and encouragement Nichole. I hope you’re proud of me and how far I’ve come. This company and everyone to do with it will always have a special place in my heart. xoxo

    I discovered PTI after doing a search for apple stamps and found teacher’s apple set and have been hooked ever since. I have learned so much from all of the very talented design team and your great tutorials and I am a much better stamper because of all of you! So thank you so much!

Happy Birthday and best wishes for many more years!

    A friend of mine had a scrapbooking club, and she was an amazingly talented lady. She did cards and scrapbooks. I went to see her and her work she was selling at a YMCA craft fair, and I fell in love with all of the projects she had made with Papertreyink products! She introduced me to Papertreyink back in December of 2008 and I am so grateful.

    Happy Birthday PTI! Today is my sister’s birthday also. Happy Birthday Tracy!

    I am new to PTI this year and discovered your great products when I saw a card featured on the Scrapbook Expo blog. I fell in love with the Hanging By a Thread stamp set and die and just had to have it. I have since purchased other products and have loved every one.

    What a great idea to share birthday wishes with your staff! I hope to get a chance to play with that today.

    i can’t remember how long i’ve been a customer, but the first thing that drew me to pti was the buttons. i saw on a blog that the buttons were from pti & as i always loved buttons i checked out the website. the first stamp sets i ordered were egg hunt & through the trees. thus began my stamping/cardmaking hobby. thanks.

    I remember hearing about this new company called Papertrey back when you first opened but I was not really into stamping as much then so I filed that news away…boy do I regret that! When I did become a customer in 2010 I could not believe how gorgeous, versatile and detailed your stamps are. And then there’s the card stock…no other card stock comes close!! I could not have come up with all the color combinations or ways to use a stamp set if I were not part of Papertrey’s fabulous family!

    Happy Birthday PTI. I was first introduced to your gorgeous stamps when I received a set as a gift and then started following Nicole’s blog together with the amazing talent, creativity and gorgeous inspiration from the DT. I knew that the company would just excel and grow from strength to strength!!!

    Josie Dee says:

    I accidentally came across PTI when I googled stampabilities. Not only did you sell them but you also had all of these amazing examples of how to use them. After that I was hooked and I couldn’t wait for each month’s release. My card making skills have improved so much over the years due to your ideas and tutorials. I just laugh at some of my work when I first started making cards and I actually was proud of them! Like you I have come a long way in 7 years thanks to your ideas! I just LOVE the new die and the leaves and I know I will be investing more money in this hobby of mine. Thanks girls and happy birthday!!!!

    Happy birthday pti! Without you I Don,t know. Where I would get my inspiration or your fabulous products.

    I stumbled across the Papertrey Ink website back in 2007. I was an avid scrapbooker, and decided I wanted to try some of those “clear stamps” to use on a few of my layouts. My first order was for Little Lady, and Butterfly Kisses, and despite how trends (and my tastes) have evolved, there is no way I would ever part with those two beloved sets.
    I am astounded each month with the new creative ways your products are used, and look forward to each release, even when I’m on an extended hiatus in an attempt to control my compulsive spending.
    Cheesy though it may sound, it’s so easy to consider you and the rest of the Design Team as part of my extended family. Purchases of your products have also been the catalyst for friendships with the postperson, and with “Mr. Brown”, not to mention the countless people that have received gifts and/ or cards from me, using your products.
    So keep up the fantastic work, because you (collectively) are an important part of my life, and I wouldn’t want to ever lose you. : ) : )

    Natasha Kara says:

    I am not good with remembering dates. According to my first order, it was 2010. But it feels like it’s been longer than that. What I love about PTI is just how ‘my style’ the designs are. They have such an elegant and professional style. Do my cards don’t have to look ‘home made’ I have had people marvel at the fact that I ‘made that?!?) lol!
    I don’t get to create nearly as much as I would like to but my PTI stash is growing at a healthy pace 😉
    Thank you to all of you for such a wonderful product.

  • 47
    Kathy W says:

    When PTI first started, I didn’t pay much attention because I swore I would never use clear stamps. The stamp designs, however, are what swayed me. After purchasing Green Thumb and Little Lady, I was hooked. Love the designs, love the design team. Big fan of PTI cardstock and buttons, and recently the dies. Looking forward to another great year.

    I am in new product overload from all the wonderful things I’ve seen today and the past few days – and I mean that in the best way! I think I discovered PTI through splitcoast stampers about six years ago and I am so grateful that I did. PTI is my go to company for all my paper crafting needs. Nichole and the design team, past and present, have inspired me and continue to influence my card making and crafting. Happy anniversary & thank you!

    Leslie L. says:

    I just looked back at my account and I placed my first order on May 26, 2012. I remember that I had been watching other bloggers use your products and had checked out your site prior to then but never ordered. Then, I discovered your blog and challenges and knew that was it, I had to try and I have been hooked ever since. My first ink was Dark Chocolate and my first paper was Stamper Select White. Thank you for such wonderful products and I must say that when my package arrives and everything is packed so nicely, wrapped in tissue, heavier items on bottom more delicate on top I can tell that the warehouse staff really takes great pride in their jobs. Other companies have tossed my $75 orders in a bubble envelope that, by the time it arrived, had holes in it big enough to have lost some of my merchandise luckily not though.

    I’m pretty sure I found PTI in 2008. You really are my only stamp product company. I can’t tell you how I look forward to the monthly reveal. I guess if you were to visit my PInterest board you would know what a huge fan I am. I’m not one to submit cards for challenges. I marvel at those that do! I love the community you have created and look forward to the upcoming year of inspiration.

    I am simply in love with the direction my beloved PTI is going!
    Just this weekend I was hoping for a cover plate in a 3 x 4 size!!!!
    You are fabulous! Yay – the festivities rock!

  • 57

    I am very thankful for Papertrey Ink and all the hard work you all put into every single release. Beautiful creations that inspire me, that helps me create beautiful pages in MY families scrapbooks with your products! Happy anniversary and I wish you many, many more years of success. I have quite the shopping list….but I wouldn’t want to spend my money any other way!!

  • 58

    My friend introduced me to Papertrey Ink in 2012 – these were the first cling stamps I ever used and placed an order almost every release (and in between) since then!! I adore your designs, quality and customer service. I love how the dies match sets and no matter which ones I use, I can create something beautiful (at least I think so 🙂 The products in this celebration release are amazing and can’t wait to get my hands on many of them (especially the new cut out dies!!)

    Tina B. says:

    I first discovered PTI when I was attending 4-day scrapbooking event in 2011. A SU vendor provided me with PTI’s website. Well, I never looked back. I started incorporating PTI stamps and diecuts in almost all my layouts. Last year I started making cards and tags to donate to a church group of elderly women’s church group.
    Thanks, PTI for meeting the needs of both card makers and scrapbookers.

    Cindy says:

    I discovered PTI in 2008 while working at a job with lots of down time. Once I saw the stamps and inspiring DT cards, I was hooked! I must say that PTI kept me from dying from boredom at that job!

    Holly Saveur says:

    LOVE it all stunning cards and new goods!
    My first order was on November 19th 2009… in the Netherlands meant that it wasn’t easy to place an order…I had never ordered something online and from the USA before…so while I discovered PTI maybe in April 2009 it took me months to really make the step..getting an credit card and place an order..I was looking so much forward each time to the releases and all the blog updates….just never had seen such gorgeous stamps and dies before…..actually wasn’t stamping for a long time yet..maybe up to 2 years…and had a Cuttlebug since 2008…
    so loved it all..and was in a wow state each time I found out more and saw more of it all….
    After I got my first order it went fast..wanted more and more of these gorgeous and stunning supplies..especially after seeing all the amazing things Nichole and the team made with it!
    So you can say PTI made me develop my card making skills..also made me meet with my 3 very sweet and best friends in the happy I found PTI!
    thanks so much for all you gave and brought me during all those years!
    Hugs Holly.

    I predict that text block is going to be a HOT trend!!
    I have been a fan of PTI Since about 2008. I didn’t shop the net and still rarely do so I have girlfriends that don’t seem to mind putting in an order so I can also get an order LOL!
    There have been times I have thought that PTI was picking my brain…I thought of something I would like and boom! a month or two down the line it showed up!

  • 69

    Happy Birthday PTI! I don’t remember exactly when I discovered PTI, but I remember loving the new release sneak peeks – and one time I won the $150 release giveaway – I felt like I had won the lottery! SOOO exciting – and love all your unique and amazing products!!!

    Tosha says:

    Surfing the net was the way we dropped into PTI. I say it that way because my grandchildren and I would drop by the site every Monday morning for the Make It Monday show. All I would have to do is load it and when the music played they would come running in to sit on Grand Mawmaw’s lap and watch all the creation being made. The girls are off to school now but my little man still watches with me.
    Now those kind of things make memories.

    jan metcalf says:

    Really enjoyed your Monthly Moments layouts! Such a sweet idea! My eye was drawn to PTI with the slice of birthday cake stamps, intrigued with the beautiful multiple stamping layers, I have been a fan ever since!

  • 77

    I found PTI in the spring of 2012 and I am so glad I did! The stamps and dies have quickly become my very favorites and the most used! I love all the beautiful inspiration from the so talented designers and look forward to sneak peeks and new releases every month! I think it’s awesome that you are thinking of brightening your warehouse employees days with customer cards- such a very sweet thought!

    Ann Lind says:

    I am loving all the new Birthday products. Probably 95% of my cards are Birthday cards and now they can be even more unique and personalized. Happy 7th Birthday PTI and thanks for keeping stamping so updated and fresh.

  • 79
    Jen T says:

    I lurked at PTI for years until I actually made a purchase. But I’ve never looked back. Great art, innovation and wonderful quality. Hope to get into the craft room to make the birthday card but it’s a busy day today so I am not sure it will happen. Regards!

    Sue in Grapevine says:

    I first placed an order in Feb. 2009 — the anniversary hoopla finally got me. I had looked & lurked for a while before this.
    Not sure how PTI came to my attention, but I think it was either 2Peas or perhaps Erin Lincoln when she was hostess of the CK message board.
    I love the new stuff & look forward to trying some of it out — at my house!

    I am loving the new products this month – the birthday die cut will be so versatile and I look forward to more in the series … and that leaf set is stunning!! So unique and fun! I stumbled upon PTI years ago and fell in love with the beautiful designs that were like no other in the industry. Thank you for all your hard work each and every month – it is truly appreciated. 🙂

    My first PTI order was in February 2008 when I was stuck at home after foot surgery. I saw gorgeous images from a relatively new company, on SCS, and was hooked immediately. When that first box came I was so excited and PTI has been in my life ever since.

    I was stamping for some years before that, but only after starting to collect PTI stamps and paper and dies did I feel like a “real” paper artist. Thank you PTI for all these years of wonderful creative products and I can’t wait to see what the next years bring!

    Happy Birthday PTI! I <3 you!

    Sara L. says:

    Love all the birthday stuff – can’t get enough of that! I do not remember when or how I first stumbled upon PTI for the first time – it has been years and I’m sure I was just randomly clicking around and stumbled upon it. What I do remember is that it was love at first sight! You have such talented designers that I was hooked right away and have been coming back for more since. Keep up the great work!

    Keri says:

    I discovered PTI back around Thanksgiving of 2010. I was a brand new card maker and was looking for good quality stamp companies that also carried coordinating dies. I found PTI through a general Google search and the rest is history! I couldn’t believe that cards could be so beautiful and that I could create them myself with these amazing products. Happy Birthday Papertrey Ink! Here’s to many more years of creative success! 🙂

    PTI has given me the chance to make wonderful cards for family and friends–I love the addition of the dies to match stamp sets, making card making a bit easier! My niece introduced me to your products and I think I became a customer in 2009. Thank you, Nichole, for the tip about why you left some of the pieces of the Text Block:Birthday diecut out. It really does make a difference! And thank you to the wonderful people behind the scenes, who package and get our orders out in a timely manner–it’s appreciated!

    see mary stamp says:

    Love the idea of the monthly-themed birthday sentiments and Lizzie’s new text block birthday die is a must have.

    A friend of mine (who actually sells product for another stamp company) was the one who introduced me to Papertrey. We’ve been placing PTI orders together every month since March of 2009. A group of us, including my dear daughter-in-law, have been meeting (almost monthly)for at least three years now to make cards using our PTI products. (My DIL had a baby on 1/13/14 and gave serious consideration to coming to our PTI get together on 1/17! She didn’t make it in January but plans to be there this month!) Needless to say – our PTI get togethers are something we all look forward to.

    A highlight of my PTI experiences was having the opportunity to attend the CHA Supershow in Illinois. Meeting Nichole (and David), Heather, Dawn, Debbie and some of the other PTI crew was a dream come true. Everyone was as genuine and friendly as they come across in their blogs.

    One of the things that has touched me the most over the years are the times when I’ve posted a comment on one of the PTI designer blogs and I hear back from them. It’s an unexpected surprise in my inbox but more importantly, that they know how very much I appreciate the inspiration they provide.

    I love sharing my birthday month with Papertrey. I can’t remember the year, but I found you because of cards published in my stamping magazines which I always enjoy reading with my coffee every morning when we’re on vacation. Once I started following your blog, I was hooked! I have a nice collection with so much more on my wishlist! Happy Birthday–keep up the good work!

  • 97

    I can’t remember exactly when I stumbled upon PTI, but I don’t know where I would be without you guys!!! Your products are so amazing and easy to use…
    It has to be at least 3 years and maybe even longer, but there is no turning away from what has become a huge addiction in my life….give me more PTI….
    And today’s Birthday release is just amazing!!!

    I found PTI about a year ago when I started getting back into crafting. Crafting has been a good way for my sister-in-law and I to get closer because it’s something we both love to do along with my niece. I didn’t know clear stamps existed until I found PTI and after I bought my first couple of sets I introduced them to her and she loves them, too. We have had lots of crafting days together and she just recently made her first PTI purchase. All the products are wonderful and I love being able to get everything from one place.

    Lorraine says:

    I started out scrapbooking and found PTI in 2009. The creative innovative stamps/dies, the mindblowing designs by the DT and the friendly fun forum had me hooked. I’ve never owned so many stamps and it doesn’t look like I’m stopping any time soon, lol. I can’t remember the last time I even stepped into a Hallmark store, haha. I’m definitely a cardmaker now (although Heather’s new line has me thinking about giving scrapbooking another try… 🙂

    I was just getting into cardmaking and I would visit gallery sites-a lot of great cards used PTI products and I had no clue what PTI was-luckily I checked a blog and found out it was Papertrey Ink! You have been my go to site for stamps and dies ever since. Love your products and the design team’s inspiration is awesome. Also a shout out to the warehouse staff-my orders are processed quickly, packaged beautifully and always correct-you can see the care and love they put into their jobs! Keep up the great work and Happy Anniversary everyone!

    I was in a monthly card-making club and one of the members told me about Papertrey Ink. I looked it up and came across Dawn’s blog. She blew me away with the projects she made with the Scattered Showers set. I placed my first order in April 2009 and have been hooked ever since.

    Pat Ackley says:

    My first order from PTI was in December 2010, but I “found” PTI when I picked up the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Paper Crafts magazine and saw Dawn’s Smooches Valentine card on the cover. I was smitten! I can’t believe it took me a year to take the plunge and place an order! At that time I was making cards with only pattern paper and thought I did’t need stamps! Dawn’s card and the introduction to PTI changed all that! Happy Birthday PTI!

  • 124
    Kathryn A says:

    I think my last comment disappeared… I said how I started card making in 2011 and have been ordering your wonderful products ever since. I love the inspiration I receive from the designers, love the high quality products and love the friendly forum members who are so helpful and kind!

    Louise says:

    It’s been several years I have been a regular customer. I can’t seem to find a stamp company I like better. I love the coordination and versatility PTI gives me. I’ll gladly admit it, I’m hooked!!! I look forward to each release, the time, thought and creativity is awesome.

  • 128
    Pat Whitley says:

    PTI has completely changed the way I make cards. I don’t buy chipboard stickers, or many stickers at all.I make my own coordinating embellies and viola! Plus, the inspiration. My cards are WOW! IMHO.

  • 129
    Cindy O says:

    Loving everything today! great idea to add some label stamps for the Limitless Layers. The new text block die is wonderful in everyone’s samples this morning. How I found PTI – it was on Debbie Olson’s blog when I was learning about Copic coloring. I wanted to get some nice card stock to mat my drawings for a few birthday cards for family. I bought the sampler pack in my first PTI order. The beautiful quality and COLORS just made me happy! And they still do. Then I started making cards for Operation Write Home. Love doing that. Thanks PTI for the inspiration and classic style that I love to create with!

  • 130
    Karen Ramsey says:

    I have been a PTI customer (fan..junkie) for about five years. The way I found PTI was by looking up Nichole on the internet because I was knocked out by some of her cards I had seen in magazines. And the rest is history!! I had been making cards for many years and was so discouraged by the trends in the industry…simply not my style. After I found PTI, I felt like I had found a home where I could craft true to my heart. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I look forward to everything wonderful this year has in store!!!

  • 131
    Katherine K says:

    I believe I became a customer in 2009. I tried to look up what I know was my first stamp sets from you and see when they were released and that is the best I can figure. I have really been enjoying the new products in the last year, especially your fabulous dies. I don’t get to order from you as much as I would like as shipping and exchange on the dollar isn’t the best for Canada right now, but I do treat myself to a big order every once and awhile. 🙂 I will definitely be treating myself this month after all it is a BIG celebration!!!!!! My favourite die so far from the previews is the Block Die: Birthday Die! It looks amazing and I can already envision so many projects with it!!! Sparkle, rainbows, shakers, picture windows, shimmer, bright colours . . . woohoo can’t wait to shop! Happy 7th PTI!!

    I had just discovered crafting when I kept seeing the word Papertrey Ink in magazines and on blogs I was reading. I had no idea what it was…at that time I didn’t even know what the word “kraft” spelled with a “k” meant. Your monthly releases have always been such a time of excitement for me and I have met so many WONDERFUL friends, in blog land and several in person too! Happy Birthday #7 Papertrey Ink.

    Ngan R. says:

    Happy Birthday, Papertrey Ink! You have given me lots of joy and crafting possibilities as I turn to my hobby of card-making more and more. I have been a PTI customer since 2010 and have quickly realized your products and service are superior to most companies out there. I am excited to see you grow and expand and hope for many more successful birthdays for you!

    Nita K. says:

    I first discovered PTI when Erin Lincoln was working for CK. I always loved her projects made with the stamps. It took me a while to get over to the site. I don’t think I actually made my first purchase until 2011, maybe. I have been pleased ever since. I only wish I could order more than I do. Over the years, my friends and family have always complimented the cards they get made with PTI. So thanks for that!

    Love the projects for today. The Text Block die is awesome. I can’t wait to see more about the stars die.

  • 137

    Happy 7th Birthday PTI> Love your products. So happy I discovered your company in 2010.

    Judy C says:

    I discovered PTI in 2007 and have the first stamp sets that came out. I can’t remember how I discovered PTI but most likely it was through another blog. I just don’t remember. I just remember loving the stamps and when the colors came out, I was hooked. I don’t even want to know the amount of money I have spent over these years. I can truly say I’m addicted.

  • 141
    Jan Stephens says:

    I think I’ve been with PTI since the beginning, or at least the first year. I found you after seeing a card on Splitcoaststampers made with PTI stamp sets. I searched and found you. I now have almost exclusively PTI stamp sets (I sold all my old Stampin’ Up sets — I never used them)! Love you to death! Happy Birthday PTI!

    I found PTI in 201. On a blog I saw a card with the Lady bug stamps. With friends we started with a few sets, then we were hooked! I am so happy for the day I stumbled across your website and for all the years of great releases and ideas. Me and many of my friends are hoping that somtimes in the future we can buy your products easiliy in a shop in germany!!!! So we can easy spend our money on your great dies and stamps. I love the new Limitless Layers stamps and the beautiful Leaves. Thanks for all inspiration

    I discovered PTI by accident, I was clicking through some links and discovered Cristina’s blog. She was featuring the zipper die and I thought to myself what an amazing die! After spending hours on your site, I found such amazing stamps and dies PTI carried and I’ve been hooked every since. I love the monthly releases and the amazing inspiration all the designers deliver. Thank you!

I am really excited about Lizzie Jones’ series of dies – the birthday die is sure to be a best seller!!! It combines die cutting with the subway text look we all love!

  • 158

    I discovered you at the Stamp-a-Faire last year … being PTI goodie-less, and therefore not playing along, meant I could spend my time being inspired … and building my (extensive!) wish list! Being in France means I need to take shipping costs into account, so I ordered just a few ultra versatile stamp sets … and have loved exploring the different ways I can use them. So, I’m thinking … is it about time for another order???

  • 159
    Nancy Penir says:

    Not only do you produce the best stamping stuff, but the best inspiration too! Wonderful new products this month! Can’t wait!

    Linda E (uncbballfan) says:

    I have been a very happy customer for five years, but it seems longer than that, because I can’t remember BPTI (Before PTI!). The 1st card I saw using a PTI stamp was “Out on a Limb” and the card was made by Susan Raihala. Her CAS style instantly caught my eye, so I owe a great deal of thanks to her.

    I cannot wait to get my hands on Text Block: Birthday – LOVE! And the Tropical Teal ink? LOVE! I feel like it’s MY birthday! Happy birthday, PTI!

    Natalie Winterstein says:

    I became a PTI addict in late 2009. I had picked up a PaperCrafts magazine to get some inspiration to make my own Christmas cards and fell IN LOVE with a number of PTI products used throughout the issue. It’s been a love affair ever since! I love the stamps, dies, color collection products – everything. But even more than the products, the people really make Papertrey such a wonderful company!

    My daughter introduced me to this hobby with scrapbooking basically but I didn’t catch on too much, Heather’s new product line looks like will change that. Then she discovered PTI with the very first set Paper Tray ( I think maybe a month or so after it was released). I have been hooked since. I looked forward each month with a new release and still do ( like a kid on Christmas morning). Happy 7th Birthday!!

  • 165
    nina says:

    I can’t remember when I came across PTI – it was around the time the cute Owl set was released. Since then I follow the blog and releases religiously! I use the products in my scrapbooking so you can imagine my joy with the announcement of the Monthly Moments series. Happy anniversary!

  • 166
    Cindy H. says:

    I placed my first order with PTI in 2008 and have been placing orders ever since. PTI’s owners and employees are the best! I have never asked any question that I didn’t get a courteous response quickly and efficiently. I love PTI’s products and I love the cards I’m able to make with them. Before I found PTI, I struggled with making cards, especially CAS which I love. Though I’m not a fast card maker, I have Nichole, the PTI DT and even the PTI Designers to give me so much lovely inspiration every month. Happy 7th Birthday, Papertrey Ink!!!

    I remember following a link for buttons to Dawn McVeys was January of 2010. I was a SU fan and then discovered PTI where clear stamps was a novelty to me. You were reving up for the anniversary release and I have been hooked ever since. It’s an addiction bordering on obsession….love you guys and you have pretty much been my place to shop for everything! You are always on the cutting edge of what’s going on, not to mention your amazing team of creative, inspirational ladies. Happy 7th anniversary PTI!!!

    JayTeeZe says:

    I got to know PTI since 2010 from a crafty friend and CARDS magazine. However, I never had a chance to buy PTI product because I stayed in Malaysia and the shipping fee is so expensive. PTI products never fail us. PTI is amazing and wonderful as PTI always create and come out with great products. I feel the passion and love, the effort you put in every time seeing new products release. They are just awesome and always touch my heart. I’m so eager wanted to own them all. I always adore and dream… should say I determine want to own some PTI products one day. I save money and wait for opportunity. Yes, I finally became PTI customer in Nov 2013. I asked my uncle and cousin to buy for me when they traveled to US. Well, I’m now so excited for the new release. Just can’t resist! Great product. Hope to own them one day!

    I stumbled on PTI around 2010..I think. I was busy searching for wedding inspirations and some how came across PTI. Even with the PTI addiction my husband still married me. LOL. Papertry ink were my go to stamps for my wedding programs, invites, and thank-you cards. I just LOVE all the creativity you share with us every month! I don’t know how you all do it, but THANK YOU!!!

    Love all the birthday products! Excited to see more of Lizzie’s Text Box dies too! Dawns Leave It Be is gorgeous and looking forward to the rest of her Birthday series.

    Found PTI through Splitcoast when you first started out. Made my first purchase a couple months later and haven’t looked back!

    You and the DT (past & present) are fabulous! Everyone does an amazing job of providing such wonderful inspiration!
    The forum members are so help, friendly and encouraging!
    PTI’s product speaks for itself. The cardstock is the best ever, the stamps timeless and that isn’t even including all the other wonderful products.

    Happy Birthday PTI!!!

    PTI’s Label Basic’s doesn’t leave my desk. In fact, I used it just this morning to make a label for a pocket scrapbook spread. PTI helps me document my memories. PTI has also really turned me into a cardmaker ever since I discovered this company. Now family and friends look forward to the cards I send in the mail. They would probably be shocked if I sent a store bought one.

    Teresa Currie says:

    I discovered PTI while wondering around on the internet several years ago trying to find supplies for a card project. The signature style of PTI is what got me hooked. I have since used your lovely PTI products on a great many cards, banners, scrapbooks, shadowbox projects and more. Your products are top notch and the customer service is outstanding. Thank you PTI and Happy Anniversary!!

    June K says:

    I became a PTI customer with the purchase of your Select White cardstock but I don’t recall when that was. There was nothing like it and there still isn’t in my opinion. Then your Aqua Mist and Spring Moss cardstock came out and I immediately purchased those and continued to be a cardstock customer. During Feb/March 2010 I became a stamps and dies customer. Besides the wonderful products PTI sells the best part of my love for PTI is the wonderful friends I’ve made – both in real life and cyber friends.

    Really like your small pocket album. Maybe if I got a smaller album I would work on it more often. Sometimes it is just too much to fill up a whole 12×12 pocket.

  • 184
    Kim Heggins says:

    I found PTI in October of 2009 and have not looked back! I look forward to each month’s release and all the inspiration that comes with it. I love card making and you have made that much more enjoyable with your wonderful products…thank you! And now with Monthly Moments, you have given me more incredible tools to make my albums more fun and very stylish!

    I became a customer on 5-15-13, after HOVERING for sometime! I believe I found you through looking for Stamp Companies…or through another site, when seeing something I LIKED! Not sure. But, after I ordered, I was impressed with HOW QUICKLY I received my package of goodies! I was QUITE IMPRESSED with the CARE THAT WAS TAKEN—wrapping my products with tissue paper & the classic packaging! I KNEW this was a TOP RATE BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!!;)THANKS EVERYONE AT PTI!!!! AND HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!!!! HAVE FUN CELEBRATING!!!!!!!!:)

    Happy birthday, Papertrey! Thank you for endless inspiration, fabulous products that continue to bring me joy, caring friendships, and dedicated service. It’s been a wonderful four years for me, as I discovered PTI a few years after it started. It didn’t take me long to build a colossal collection of stamps, paper, ink, dies, ribbon, buttons, felt, and more. Thank you to Nichole, Jane, Julie, stamp designers, design team members, forum moderators, and warehouse staff. I appreciate everything you do! You’ve made a difference in my life and I can’t wait for the journey to continue for years to come.

    I discovered Papertrey Ink when I first started stamping and you were just getting ready to launch. There was a thread on Splitcoast Stampers discussing this new company that was getting ready for their first release and it was only going to be one stamp each month. People were doubtful that you would succeed:) I became a fan and loyal customer of PTI’s from that first release. Your company has helped make me that stamper that I am today. Thank you for seven years of inspiration and fun!!!

    The first set I fell in love with was the library card / pocket / stamp set. I still love that set, and it is my favorite of all the ones I have. I don’t remember what year that came out, but it was the first one I bought.

    Holly Townsend says:

    I only discovered PTI in late 2012, after clicking a Pinterest post showcasing a beautiful card created by Melissa Phillips. I have since then been in awe of the hundreds of stamp sets and dies that PTI offers. I absolutely love PTI cardstock, the quality is superb. I only have 8 ink cube colors, but with my birthday coming up I’m hoping to get to fill my wishlist of more cardstock colors, ink colors, and felt…oh and a few stamp sets and dies. Happy 7th Anniversary PTI!

    I was lucky to have found you in 2007 early in the PaperTrey journey and it has helped my Stamping tremendously. Your style with the 2 step stamps is my favorite way to stamp! Kudos PTI! I celebrated that you are in my home town and that made me even more proud of your success.

  • 203
    Donna Cala says:

    I love reading everyone’s kind words about their relationship with PTI. I have been a customer and devotee since the beginning. You had a dynamite DT and I drooled over every card you all made. Although the DT has changed, it has always maintained the best in the biz with mind-blowing talent and creativity. I love PTI too because of the breadth of products you produce, and, all at a very reasonable cost. You are very deserving of your superstar status in the crafting world.

    February birthdays ARE the best! Mine is a Valentine birthday so my mom always gets me a card for that. Now she can make me one!

  • 205

    I think it was 2008 when I placed my first PTI order. I was new to stamping (had gone to three Stampin’ Up parties) and looked to the internet for more inspiration. I absolutely fell in love with all the fabulous PTI products and from that point on looked forward to every release. I wanted to participate in Dawn’s Raspberry Suite Color Challenges so in September 2009 I started my blog. That opened a whole new world! The friends and support from stamping buddies I initially meet through PTI has been incredible. Thanks to PTI for giving me such a wonderful gift!

    Nichole, I’ve been enjoying your work since you were a PRO at Papercrafts Magazine! I think your designs and those of your team are the best in the industry! As a small business owner myself (scarves) I am impressed and intrigued by your business and marketing strategies. I think the sky is the limit for you! All the best to you and your whole company.

    Your new Text box die cuts are on the TOP of my list!! I can see so many wonderful uses for them.

    Thank you for playing a part in making paper crafting so much fun!

    I learned about loving stampin around 4.5 years ago, but I really got addicted to it, when I got to know Papertrey Ink and your gorgeous stamps and dies, and also especially even, your high quality paper and matching colors with the ink, ribbon, buttons, etcetera. I loooooove that and it has really changed my hobby and I fell in love with making cards and I noticed that my handmade cards can really put a smile on the receivers face. So not only did my life change, the lifes of my loved ones as well! 😀

    Even though I don’t have any PTI products *yet*, my life has been touched because I visit this site daily (and often several times daily) for the inspiration, the dazzling creations, the passion that comes from all those connected with PTI. I’m saving up for a ‘big’ PTI purchase, and can’t wait until I have opportunity to take the plunge. I know my investment will reap wonderful rewards! Thanks for all the days you’ve brightened!

    Cheryl I says:

    I found PTI in 2008 and I have been hooked ever since. I gradually changed all my crafting products to PTI so they would coordinate. Being on a budget, I deeply appreciate the products being designed to mix and match (i.e. labels, etc…)and I also appreciate the option of the smaller $5 sets as well. My wish list grows every month and it is a happy day indeed when a PTI order arrives! I am so thrilled with the new monthly series from Heather. Pocket page scrapbooking from PTI…oh the joy! Congratulations on 7 wonderful years. Thank you for your professionalism and quality products!

    I discovered PTI back in Feb. 2009 during their anniversary celebration. I was blown away by the versatility of the stamps and the creativity of Nichole and the DT. I ordered Tags for Spring along with the coordinating ‘kit’ of paper, ink, and ribbon that they released that month. I thought that would be a great way to try some PTI products that were already coordinated. Needless to say, I fell in love with the quality of PTI cardstock!!! The perfect match ink and ribbon were bonuses. I have been a customer ever since–Happy Anniversary, PTI!

    Love the Limitless Layers Frames for the Limitless Layers Dies. This is something I’ve been wanting to see. Also really like the Text Block: Birthday and the Leave It Be stamp set and die. I am so very happy to see another monthly series. The months of the year is great and I love how economical these monthly series are. Thanks to all the designers for sharing their creations and for the chance to win.

    What an amazing amount of inspirations today. Love nearly everything so I’ll have to start saving my pennies! I found Papertrey 5 years ago and have loved creating
    numerous products with your wonderful materials. In fact almost all my blog posts contain your stamps or dies and I’m having to consciously look at adding some other products, so my visitors don’t get too bored with my product lists!!!.

    Suzanne Webb says:

    I had been an admirer of projects I would see in various publications using PTI products for a long time before purchasing. Owning my own scrapbook store, I could never justify buying myself products that I couldn’t carry in my store. So, when I had to close the store, my saving grace was in the discovery of how wonderful PTI products all worked together. I started purchasing, participating in challenges and looking forward to every month’s releases, and I’ve never looked back!

    Oh gosh, Leave It Be and the Text Block Birthday are just so so amazing!!! I think I discovered you through the Paper Crafts magazine a couple of years ago… loved your product then and I love it now! I think I first became a customer around 2009, too. Thank you so much for so many creative moments, PTI!!!

    I look forward to each month’s new releases and the fun new items you’ll be introducing. I can’t remember how long I’ve admired your products and enjoyed the inspiration I’ve gotten from them and the way your design team uses them. All I know is how much I’ve grown in my own creativity since! Thanks for all the hard work.

    Sending cards to the warehouse is such an awesome idea! I am not too thrilled about take a selfie though! I love everything from today’s post and can’t wait to start creating!

  • 241

    Love the text block die and Leave it be dies. i found PTI back in 2010 I believe when I was looking for crafting supplies. Its just the time when I started building my stash and PTI dies are the first die product I bought. Still love PTI til now. Happy 7th anniversary

    Jan Marcham says:

    Love the birthday text block die! Seems like I’ve followed PTI forever! I love the 5th of every month to see what’s coming. PTI is definitely my favorite place to shop and to get inspiration from.

    Terri says:

    I just love the idea of a monthly birthday stamp set as these Re my favorites.

    I became a customer last year after one of the gals in my online community kept sharing all the sneak peeks. I just couldn’t resist. I have had such fun with your stamp/die sets those are favorites. All of the relatives like your products too and one special niece says she cannot wait for her birthday and Christmas too see what I come up with.
    Thanks PTI!

    Charmaine says:

    I really enjoyed the layout project. It is giving me ideas on how to start a scrapbook for myself.

    I found PTI a few months before the first anniversary. I hadn’t bought anything yet, but really enjoyed all the projects I was finding on Nichole and Heather’s blogs. I became a customer for life when I won the first anniversary prize package…wow…was that a fantastic surprise! I actually got tears in my eyes 🙂 Every card I make has at least one PTI product on it. Thanks PTI for 7 great years of products and inspiration!

  • 246
    Janet says:

    I found PTI through my wonderful bridesmaid who just loves papercrafting. I had just moved to a new country with no friends and family close by. I soon discovered the world of paper crafting and found a whole new chapter of my life with blogging and card making. My friend introduced me to PTI and I’ve been hooked ever since. I made my first big purchase a year ago and I just love their customer service and quality products. The stamp sets are gorgeous and the design team is amazing. Thanks Papertrey Inks for creating wonderful designs. Happy Birthday!

  • 247
    Debbie says:

    I discovered Papertrey in 2010. To say I’m smitten is an understatement. Each and every month delivers creative possibilities to challenge me. As a recent retiree and empty-nester, I welcome the time to pursue my art. I look forward to what PTI has in store for this year!

  • 248

    Jeannine Brenner says:

    Well, I am sad to say that I currently do not own any PTI goodies so I can’t enter the challenges! Boo hoo! But I am hoping to become a NEW customer on the 15 and order some paper and new goodies so I can start playing along! I have been a follower for a few months now and I just love seeing all of the new goodies and the projects using them! There are endless possibilities as well as endless inspiration!

    The first stamp set I bought on a release night was Take Note in Oct 2009 & I still love it! My PTI collection really started to build after I shifted from scrapbooking to card making a couple of years ago.

    Marisa says:

    Think I found PTI in 2008 but not sure. Love your dies – they cut fabulously though thick paper and are of excellent quality. Appreciate all those who work in the warehouse packaging and sending out our orders! It’s a behind the scenes job that many not get a lot of thanks, but I for one am VERY thankful for all of them 🙂 Happy 7th Birthday PTI!

Happy Anniversary !!

    Kristinkat2 says:

    I became a Papertrey addict in 2011. I started looking at Nichole’s blog in the summer and was amazed at the beautiful cards the DT made. I had been stamping for several years (largely self-taught), but I hadn’t found a company whose stamps I just loved. When I discovered Nichole’s blog, I felt encouraged to see the DT using techniques I had figured out on my own and challenged to try new techniques that they showcases on Make It Mondays and during releases. Your products were so fun and lovely! I made my first purchase in September of 2011, and every month, the new release is on my watch list. Thank you for being an inspiration!

  • 260

    I was a PTI fan starting back in middle of 2008 and became a die-hard fan staring with the holiday collection in 2009. I think I picked up every holiday set that year!

    Joyce M. says:

    What a fabulous release. I learned about PTI in 2011, a few months after I discovered stamping at Paper Source. I kept reading ‘PTI Stampers Select White’ in the supplies list on Split Coast Stampers, and decided to check it out myself. I ordered a pack of that, Mazel Tov, Mixed Messages and a Borders and Corners set. After that, I was hooked and have ordered almost every single month at least once. (yes, I have a big craft room). 3 years later, I am still hooked on Stampers Select White, and Mixed Messages is still one of my ‘go to’ sets and probably my most used set overall. Mazel Tov is still what I use for every Jewish card occasion as well. PS. You’ve got the best warehouse staff as well. A big thank you and shout out to them.

    Titta says:

    I’ve been a PTI customer since 2008. I saw some of Dawn’s beautiful cards on SCS, then discovered Dawn’s blog and, through her, PTI. My life hasn’t been the same since! 🙂 Yours were the first non-rubber stamp sets I ever bought, and although I was a little unsure about them first, I now hardly ever use rubber stamps any more. Most of my stamp collection is PTI, because I love the style, the quality and the value for money. I’m a big fan of the $5 sets and all the dies matching stamp sets. As one of your international customers, I’m also very happy that you’re offering 1st class mail again as a shipping option. Thanks for listening to your customers!

  • 265
    Yoorah says:

    I’ve been a fan ever since the first year you’ve been in business! The true addiction started with the Believe set and the addiction truely got out of control when you started with the matching dies. You make such wonderful products that are a joy to use! Thank you and keep up the wonderful work!

  • 266
    Heather says:

    I saw a photo of some gorgeous glittery pink houses in a Christmas scene and was directed to Melissa Phillips’ blog. From there, I discovered Papertrey Ink. I ended up purchasing the template to make those houses – which reminds me that my computer crashed since then and I lost everything, including that template. I need to get that again, is there a way to do that?

    Anyway, I purchased the complimentary stamp set for the houses to use at my daughter’s birthday party. She got a few girls together and they each put together a house and decorated it as part of her party. They had such a good time!

    I think I discovered you during your 2nd or early in your 3rd year of business. Happy Birthday PTI, I thoroughly enjoy your company, people, projects, releases, and creativity. I only wish I could afford to feed my addiction (oops, I mean add to my collection) more!!!

  • 267
    Janet B. from WV says:

    I’m not completely sure when I discovered PTI (probably about 4-5 yrs ago), but I do know that ever since then it is very rare for me to purchase stamps from another company. And I NEVER buy plain cardstock anywhere else. No matter what other companies come up with, PTI just does it better. I feel like PTI products take my creativity to a whole new level, so thank you stamp designers, DT, & everyone behind the scenes who help make that possible!

  • 268

    I just went back to your post from July, 17 2009 – when I found out that you made me a Guest Star Stamper Winner. I remember dancing around the house with my baby girl looking at me with big, questioning eyes. It meant so so much to me and it was one of my first accomplishments in card making. PTI has been one of my favorites ever since and influenced me a lot. Can’t stop loving it 🙂

  • 269
    Sharon D says:

    I found PTI in Feb 2008 and instantly loved your products and style. Papertrey is my online happy place–the forum, Nichole’s blog, the DT blogs–so much inspiration, friendliness, and happiness. I’ve loved attending CHA in Orlando and SAF in Cincinnati. I love how the forum makes me feel connected to friends in many other countries. I love being able to create with beautiful PTI products. Happy birthday, Papertrey!

  • 271

    I love the Leave it Be set. Dawn has outdone herself this time. I want to say a Big Happy Anniversary to Papertrey Ink. I can’t believe it has been seven years since I found this lovely card online and wanted to know where it came from,that investigation took me to PTI. I haven’t looked anywhere else since, all my needs have been met here. Thank you designers and all the staff at PTI!

  • 272
    Kathy Mc says:

    Although my first order directly from PTI wasn’t until 2011, I was buying used sets off the awesome Forum to see how I liked the acrylic stamps having only used rubber-mounted ones previously. Let me just say I never looked back and now only buy PTI. Between the fabulous DT, staff and owners, they are the best. Your anniversary festivities are lots of fun with generous prizes and fairness to all, and your Stamp-a-faire really inspires us out of our comfort zones (especially true for me). My life-long competitiveness is a natural when it comes to MIM’s, Monthly Blog Hops and I schedule my mornings around PTI’s schedule of blog posts. The Forum has encouraged me to start my own blog recently, and the members are like extended family. Yeah, Papertrey Ink!

    I found PTI in June 2011 and was hooked from the first visit. I don’t remember who’s link I followed to get there, but I know I was so glad to find you. I am amazed every month at the new additions and inspirational projects. Always on trend and so versatile. I appreciate all the time and attention the designers give to the new products to make them so functional and compatible with the existing line. Kudos to a great company!

    I can’t remember when I first discovered PTI but it was quite a few years ago. Because I live in France, I didn’t buy any stamps for a while but finally dived in and I have been hooked ever since. I don’t have any stamping friends here and so I like to feel that I can share what I make via the challenges which makes me feel part of a larger and very vibrant creative community.

    Krystal G. says:

    Oooh … so many wonderful things to choose from. it’s a tie between the Text Birthday Block die and the Limitless layers tags. I’m a sucker for creating my own coordinating tags for scrapbooking!

  • 279
    Melissa Friedrich says:

    I have only recently “found” the treasure that is Papertrey Ink (just a few months ago), but I am amazed at the creativity the designers show with projects to highlight specific products and techniques, highlighting the wonderful details that to me, are signature PTI e.g. the stitching lines, leaf veins, and how well ALL the various sets work together e.g. flowers from one or two sets and leaves from another and a sentiment from yet another set! Thank you so much for your inspiration!

    I love those stars!!! The gold and black are brilliant together. Can’t wait to hear more about them!!

  • 289

    I’ve been a PTI customer for just over three years. I remember discovering your adorable “On My Couch” stamp set in a special issue magazine of Paper Crafts and I had to come check out this amazing company who created it. I still remember the joy of receiving my first order all carefully wrapped in tissue paper and topped with a sticker like a fancy boutique. I was a goner right then and there. 😉

  • 290

    I was reintroduced to Papertrey Ink in 2013. My super crafty friend had created some cards with your products years ago, but I didn’t realize it at the time. I’m glad I found you guys again! My birthday is also in February so I’m really enjoying seeing all the lovely birthday cards for this month.

  • 291

    I discovered PTI through Dawn McVey’s blog. For some reason, I had been searching for challenges, and she used to host them on her blog. I remember seeing the Papertrey links in her sidebar and found Nichole…I’ve been hooked every since. I believe that was in 2008 or so. At the time that I found PTI, you were getting ready to release “Enjoy the Ride.” My husband is a Volkswagen mechanic, so it was a perfect match. I remember being so very exited about the stamp and I told him all about how I had to wait until the 15th to order it 🙂 I’ve been a customer ever since then!

    Connie G says:

    I discovered PTI in 2010. I just adore all the products and inspiration I find here. This anniversary has been short of amazing and I didn’t think anything could top last years. Fabulous products and so much eye candy. I love the text box die and can’t wait to see other ones later in the year. Thank you all for all the hard work and effort you put into every release.

  • 295

    I first started following PTI in 2009 through Michelle Wooderson’s blog. I was so impressed with all of the sentiment sets, as they were so unique. I finally placed my first order in 2010. I live in Canada, about 45 minutes north of the U.S.-Canada border, so I made plans to have that first order delivered to an outlet in Minnesota. I still remember the excitement of opening my first parcel on the drive back home (luckily my husband was driving!!). I opened each carefully wrapped stamp set and squealed with delight!! After 4 years I’m still excited each time I pick up my PTI package!! Thank you to all of the PTI staff – the many talented designers, stamp illustrators and Nichole, as well as all of those behind the scenes. Your hard work is much appreciated.

    JennyR. says:

    I really only became a regular customer last fall, but I love the PTI style. I also appreciate that you offer such a range of option, from large sets to the minis and with coordinated dies too! It is hard to say no when an adorable mini set and matching die can be had for under $10 total! I love to make birthday cards, so I can’t wait to see the rest of the Birthday Classics sets!

    AllysonA says:

    When I was just beginning to make cards, I found my way to Papertrey Ink products. I participated in the Make It Monday challenges, which helped me to develop techniques. I joined the forum, where I found friendship and crafty ‘support.’ PTI helped me to work out my own style of crafting, because PTI products coordinated with that style. I’ve been a customer since July 2010, and my crafty time has been more enjoyable in part because of the great style, convenience, and quality of PTI products. Thanks for all the crafty fun you help to provide for me! 😉

    Happy Birthday, PTI! I found PTI in January 2009 when I started purchasing Timeless Templates. It wasn’t until October 2010 that I purchased my first stamps and dies. Up until that time I did hybrid papercrafting, but I wanted something more. PTI certainly fit the bill.

    Happy Birthday Papertrey Ink! I only just became a Papertrey customer in March of 2013 and I have to say that I love everything about your product line. It has sparked new creativity in my paper crafting and I look forward each month to your new releases. Your design team is exceptional and truly inspiring and any of the behind the scenes staff that I have had contact with have been extremely helpful. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for 2014!

    I’m a latecomer, and didn’t discover PTI until 2011 when I was looking for a source for kraft cardstock. Little did I know that after only a few orders (and a lot more visits to the website) that I would be hopelessly hooked on everything PTI! And now, as they say, the rest is history…! Happy Birthday, PTI!

    Thank you to all employees of Papertrey Ink for the joy you bring to our lives. I have been scrapbooking since 2000 but I found PTI in 2010. My first set was EGG Hunt and my first die was the “egg”. I thought it was a wonderful idea and now have hundreds of PTI dies!! I love making cards! I want to combine my stamping and scrapbooking hobbies and the new products will help me do that.

  • 311
    Jeannie L says:

    Fantastic sets and fabulous features from DT. I got to know about PTI in 2010 when I relocated to the US. I just started to know about card making and scrap booking. Chanced upon someone’s blog and started following Nichole and slowly following the rest of the design team members. Made my first purchase in 2010 as well and it became a monthly affair for the next 2+ years. Still buy products now even though I’ve relocated out of US, just can’t be as frequent. What got me started purchasing was I’m a sucker for meaningful sentiments etc and I loved that I could use them on inside of cards as well. I also absolutely love the designs of the stamp sets released monthly. I think they are the most fun and prettiest designs coming out. I’m in love with so many of the floral and sentiment sets. Also love the inspiration I get from all the design team members. Thanks for getting me hooked on crafting.

  • 312

    Papertrey definitely help me in exploring my creativity and taking it to the next level. You create such fabulous sets that makes all the gears in my brain churning and get my mojo going. I love how PTI always ahead in trend and style. Keep up the good work!!

    I think I found PTI in 2010. I suffer from chronic migraines and other chronic illnesses and PTI’s products allow me to be creative, and not go stir crazy while having to spend so much time at home. Thank you for your inspiration, your wonderful products, and for making my life better!

    Margaret R says:

    I started shopping at PTI early 2012. I bought a Sizzix Bigshot and wanted to make my own tags for Christmas. My local scrapbooking store didn’t have any dies suitable and suggested I look online – I discovered PTI and now I own not only dies but a whole load of stamps, card stock and inks too. I am a quilter who was ‘dipping her toes’ into card making but I ‘fell in’! Your tutorials have equipped me with the knowledge to be able to be creative. Thanks team!

    Sue McRae says:

    What beautiful cards. I love the Leave It Be set and one I will have to have. I found Papertrey Ink checking out videos on You Tube. I found your Make It Monday videos, watched them all and had to check out your site. I love that I can purchase stamps and dies to match. All your products are fabulous and I love all the inspiration from you and the design team.

    I was introduced to PTI through a rec therapist at a rehab facility I attend to help manage my MS. We both share card making as a hobby and I was amazed and thrilled to have at my feet (and fingertips!) this wonderful, endless world of not just gorgeous stamps, but matching dies to take my crafting to new and thrilling heights.

    PTI has been a part of many special events in my family but never as frequently as throughout this past year. In 2013 my oldest daughter got married, then she and her DH were blessed with my first grandbaby, Henry.

    In addition to the decorations for the hall (lots of draped organza and huge tissue flowers in yellow and grey) I had the honor of making all of the paper products for the wedding, from the ‘save the date’ cards to the thank you notes, along with everything conceivable item in between. It took. While to get the design just right. We tried using the carnations from ‘Year of Flowers: February’, then tried again with ‘In Bloom’ before finally selecting the gorgeous ginkgo leaves from ‘Harvest Berries’. A perfect choice for the season and color scheme. For Christmas I received a beautiful photo album filled with photos from that beautiful March day and one of the very first pages is a beautiful grouping of the invite, reply card, menu and place card beside my daughter’s bouquet. I was so touched.

    I can’t tell you how much it has meant to have such wonderful, affordable products that are always beautiful and innovative. You allow us to create exceptional visions for ourselves and our families to enjoy during our most special times together and there is no greater gift. Thank you for the address – I won’t use it for the contest but I’d love to send you a photo of the album page (I might sneak in a few baby shower project shots as well lol). Gratitude is so much fuller when it is shared and I thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart.

    I think I discovered pti circa 2007. I’ve been addicted ever since. Yours is my favorite blog, hands down. The inspiring DT projects, the super fantastic products, the variety of styles all come together in the perfect trifecta. Somehow ,it all just keeps getting better and better. Thanks.

    Miriam Prantner says:

    First I have to say that I just love the text block birthday die, so cool! So I got into card making about 2 1/2 years ago and started following you then. I’ve been gifted some items and finally placed my first order this past year. Your products are well loved at my house and I look forward to each month’s release. Can’t wait to see what this new year brings!

    Patt H. says:

    The first time I saw PTI was last year. (Where had I been??). It was love at first sight & I now have many of your wonderful stamps & dies. My stamping friends are now addicts also. Your products & your blog are awesome! I love how each product is showcased so we can see all the different ways to use them. Thanks so much to each of your talented designers for their inspiration! I see lots of things I really need from this new collection!

    Pamela Burke says:

    I believe I began buying PTI in 2010, and I haven’t been able to stop since! I love that several of my stamping friends also love PTI and we always call each other and ooh and aah of each release! Love you guys–and thanks so much!

    Sarah Thieke says:

    I found PTI online in 2012, and I am so glad I did! The products have really inspired my creativity and give me a great outlet for my need to “be creative” and make pretty things! 🙂 My dinning room table has been transformed into my craft table! PTI designers are so inspiring and it is so nice that we all feel like a big family in our excitment for new stamps and dies being released! Thank you so much PTI! 🙂

    MaryB says:

    I’ve been a PTI customer since sometime in 2007, within a few months of the first set release. I had been spending quite a bit with the major home party/demo company, but after finding PTI and photopolymer stamps, I quickly quit buying any red rubber or wood mounts. Then you added cardstock, paper, ribbon, dies…I’ve loved it all. Anyone looking at my order history would know just how big an impact PTI has had on my craft room! The warehouse staff does an amazing job, and deserves a huge thanks from those of us who anxiously await our order every month (or more frequently). Thanks also for extra chances to win gift certificates this month!

    Sandy Kay says:

    I have been a loyal PTI fan since the very beginning. I have grown so much as a stamper with the products that make creating a gorgeous card so easy! Papertrey is where I always turn to for inspiration – it’s the BEST!

    Tee Tee Z says:

    I started stamping about 16 years ago when my sister-in-law invited me to a stamping party. I was hooked and for about 9 years used that one company’s products. I can’t remember how I found out about PTI but I have been a PTI fan since almost the beginning and have become an exclusive PTI customer. I love how the designs are innovated, unique, and versatile. I love how nothing gets retired and how the products coordinate with one another. Best of all, I love the customer service and the monthly DT creations which always make me want it all. Oh, the dies are awesome too. I could go on and on….

    Lillian O. says:

    Happy 7th Birthday/Anniversary PTI!! I have been a faithful follower/buyer for two years now and I truly look forward to each month’s countdown, especially in February. I just love everything about Papertrey from the products, the designers, their elegant style and service. Cardmaking is such a relaxing and enjoyable hobby and I must thank Papertrey for truly inspiring me. I look forward to continuing to see and buy what Papertrey will develop in the future. Thank you…

  • 335
    Tammie J. says:

    I can’t really remember exactly when I became a customer but it had to be 5 or 6 years ago….early on for sure. My best friend and I would look over the releases, make our purchases (fully intending to share what each other bought!) and spent all of our stamping time together. Holds SO many good memories of all the times we have stamped together – especially homemade holiday cards. I must say, the birthday card projects showcased today are fabulous. I can’t even pick a favorite! Thanks to the entire PTI crew for all you do!

    Janet Mack says:

    I stumbled across PTI in your second year, I was looking through a crafty magazine and saw a card that caught my eye. They used PTI stamps and I have been hooked ever since. Too bad I don’t live in Ohio because I would love to come and work for you. I loved seeing the warehouse.

  • 343
    Nancy G says:

    I found Papertrey at the end of the year in 2009. Nichole and all of the designers warms my heart each month when they showcase all of the products. They put so much time and effort into this business I can see why everyone wants to be part of the Papertrey family(including me). Those girls are so LUCKY!! A toast…. here’s to all of Papertrey’s wonderful parties and fantastic products, many more years to come!!!

  • 344
    Jeni says:

    I first found PTI in 2008 during their one year anniversary party. There had been an advertisement in Paper Crafts magazine so I checked it out & have been hooked ever since.

    A big thank you to all of the warehouse workers. Without you, I wouldn’t get my goodie boxes so quickly. And each box is packed so perfectly. I love opening up each & every item.

  • 345
    Tami B says:

    I first heard of PTI when a blogging buddy sent me a card on the most wonderful card stock. It was PTI, of course. (I hope and I’m pretty sure I thanked her for the card before I asked about the great paper she used.)

  • 346
    Carol says:

    I discovered papertrey ink in 2007 when I purchase green thumb. I stumbled across the company from Debbie Olson’s blog who will be greatly missed!! At the time my Stampin Up demonstrator was retiring and it turned out that I discover the company at the same time.

  • 347
    Marcia Hill says:

    Wonderful inspiration today ladies! I’ve been stamping since 1999, but didn’t find out about PTI until around 2010…I’m bummed I missed those first years! I am truly hooked on your products and budget restraints is the only thing that keeps me from ordering EVERYTHING each month! I’m hoping I’ll find time tonight to stamp a birthday card and picture for you! Keep up the great work PTI…I love you!! :0)

  • 348
    Gaby says:

    Happy Birthday!! –This is awesome! I am so loving the life documented | Simple Stories | Monthly moments! Love PTI designs! I am addicted at purchasing your dies! Came across your company through a blogger sharing a link.

  • 349
    Mutzy Mia says:

    September 2011 was my first order with PTI. I remember finding it after reading a blog that made reference to PTI in a card they had made. Then I had a relative that would mention her love of PTI and I decided to check it out further. I don’t even remember what the item was that drew me to PTI but when I found it I was hooked. It’s now the number one place I shop! The stamps can be used so many ways and there are so many unique sayings. I also like the fact that so many of the sets can be interchanged with each other. The inspiration you give each month is just frosting on the cake! Thanks everyone for all your hard work…I love each set being individually wrapped…just like opening a birthday present every month!

    Meg C says:

    I found PTI by stumbling across Nicole’s blog many years ago. I followed her blog for many years and finally made a purchase of PTI product a year ago. The products completely lived up to my expectations. I also followed Nicole’s blog when she was building her house as I was doing the same here in Marietta, GA. I have been inspired by PTI’s story so much that I am planning on beginning to sell my card creations and teach and in my community the wonderful things that can be done with paper, ink and one’s imagination once I leave corporate life at the end of 2014. Thanks for giving me this gift. Ladies!

  • 356
    Tammy says:

    Papertrey Ink is my absolute favorite stamp company! I placed my first order in 2008, I think, and have ordered Every.Single.Month since then! (Sometimes even more than once a month!) PTI’s cardstock is the best on the planet! The stamps and dies are beyond amazing and so innovative. And the Design Team – WOW!!! They are the BEST in the business and sooooo inspiring every month! Thanks PTI for bringing so much inspiration and happiness into my life!

    I’ve been a long time follower of Dawn McVey, SHE is the one that got me hooked on PTI 🙂 Her set Damask Designs was my first purchase. Thanks Dawn for introducing me to Papertrey Ink and inspiring all of us with your wonderful designs!

  • 359

    I am still so bumped that I am on the road the past few days and won’t be able to stay in my craft room so I can join in all the fun, however, I am still keeping up with the blog whether I am in NYC, Frankfurt or Singapore.
    Thanks to all at PTI, the designers, the inspiration and all the behind scene staff who packed and shipped our products to our doorstep every month in time!

  • 360
    Susan P says:

    What a great idea this contest is! I can’t wait for the warehouse employees to see all the cards we made for them! They truly do help us make a difference in other people’s lives. Happy Happy Birthday Papertrey!

  • 362
    Jennifer Delaurier says:

    I’ve been a PTI fan since 2008, shortly after I had our daughter. I used paper crafting as my “me time” when I could sneak it in, and it always made me feel relaxed and reconnected to my creative side. Every year, my family combines their birthday gifts to me and I get a big order, so it’s always my favorite time of the year! I look forward to many more releases, the team provides me with limitless inspiration!

  • 363
    Jen Carter says:

    I was a demo with a company when PTI first opened. From Day #1 I was in love with your stamps and for several months I drooled over my secret love for them. However, I didn’t feel I could order at the time because my allegiance was with the company that I was a demo for. I felt so free the day I sent in my resignation to that company and knew I could freely order whenever I wanted and could showcase PTI products on my blog! PTI helped me grow in my journey as a card marker and from there, the rest is history!

    Lisa R. says:

    Happy Birthday Papertrey! I’ve been with you since the very beginning. You’ve never failed to motivate and inspire me to be a better stamper. I’m very grateful for your great contribution to the stamping community. Thank you and wishing you many, many more years of success!

  • 367
    Carrie T says:

    I don’t remember exactly how I stumbled upon Michelle Wooderson’s blog back in 2008, but I did and that led me to PTI. I am so glad that I did! I was in love as soon as I spied all of the wonderful cards made by Nichole! Papercrafting is my therapy as I have a special needs child. PTI has a very special place in my life. Thanks!

  • 368
    Hollie says:

    I found Papertrey Ink in 2008, through a friend who told me you had the best cardstock for card making. I made my first order and was hooked from then on! I love your stamps so much, they are on mark with trends and most of my published cards have PTI stamps, dies, or ink somewhere on them!!

    Tabitha A. says:

    I can’t remember when I discovered PTI. I think it was maybe the third year. I’ve accumulated quite the collection and I love it all!!! You’ve really taking my crafting to the next level!

    I think you have the best designs on the market. They are fresh and versatile. I really like the monthly series of the themed sets!

  • 373
    Nicki S says:

    I’m not sure exactly when I ‘discovered’ PTI, but I think I started off purchasing some ribbon and one stamp set at CHA about 4 years ago. Then, 3 years ago I made a larger purchase online and have been hooked ever since!! I am beyond impressed by all the talent and creativity that comes from PTI and it’s designers. I believe the designers have inspired me and helped to shape my card making style as CAS. I absolutely LOVE using PTI products and visiting blogs with endless ideas on how to use them. It’s truly my favorite hobby 😉

  • 374
    MissAnn says:

    It is hard to believe that PTI has only been around for 7 years. I just LOVE the monthly release because it is easy to keep things fresh and current. I have seen many a smile from card recipients thanks to PTI products. Customer service is awesome and quality exceptional. Thank you SO much for keeping things interesting!!!

  • 375
    Marlena M says:

    Papertrey Ink~when you party….you PARTEYYYYY!!! I’ve felt a part of your family since I started my blog in April 2011. GRUNGE ME was my first set and I still love it. You have excellent customer service and I really really appreciate that you don’t retire stamps. It means you stand by your classic products. The vault idea was BRILLIANT because you still offer a way to keep your sets. Many many blessings to you, Nichole, and your design team and staff~

  • 376
    Rae Ramses says:

    I came to know Papertrey Ink through Ashley Cannon Newell, back when she first began and was posting on Split Coast Stampers website. I remember thinking that she had the coolest backgrounds on her cards and then to find out she made them with your stamps. I’m glad to say that was over 4 years ago and it wasn’t until your fifth year anniversary that I placed my first order. I remember Dawn McVey made a set of cards using the Delightful Doilies stamp and I was hooked. Time just flies when you’re having fun stamping. Happy 7th year anniversary, PTI!

  • 377

    Wow! This is such an AMAZING release! I am loving the looks of all of these new goodies! And your projects are so gorgeous and inspiring!!!

    Meagan says:

    I found PTI in 2010 after attending my first card making party. At the time I had no thought of ever making my own cards but then I discovered Nichole and the design team members blogs and I realized I wasn’t limited to just cards. PTI has given me unlimited inspiration and is the reason I love this crafty addiction of mine.

  • 380
    Lori B says:

    In 2009 I was blog hopping looking for ideas for a sympathy card. I wish I could remember where I saw the card using the “Perhaps They Are Not Stars” quote from the With Sympathy set. It brought tears to my eyes (still does) and so touched my heart, that I spent the next couple of days trying to track down the company that had made that stamp. Found it, discovered PTI and the rest as they say, is history! Happy 7th birthday.

  • 381

    I’m always in the market for anything BIRTHDAY! Love this new die!

  • 382
    Patti says:

    I’ve followed PTI from the beginning and have enjoyed each and every release. I am constantly in awe of the creativity that flows from the PTI team. In 2010 I was lucky enough to win the Year of Stamps. It was an incredible gift. That same year, I attended the CHA Super Show. It was a pleasure to meet and be able to personally thank Heather, Jane, Julie and many of the other PTI team members. It’s obvious that they love what they do. The quality products, inspiring design team, and exceptional service make them a leader in the papercrafting industry. Happy anniversary PTI and best wishes for another successful year!

    Lynn Hardy says:

    I love the peeks today – especially the Leave it alone set! Thanks for all the lovely inspiration too!

  • 384

    I love all of today’s reveals!!! I first started buying Papertrey Ink products back in 2008. I was craft blog cruising when I came upon this AMAZING stamper/copic colorist Debbie Olson. Her cards were incredible and all her techniques with embossing and Copics had me drooling! I clicked on a link from her cards to Papertrey Ink and the rest as they say was stamp bliss. I love to check in with the PTI designers almost everyday, and love all your products. Thank you for 7 wonderful years of stamp bliss!

    SheriE. says:

    Based on what some of my first sets were I think it was 2008 when I discovered PTI. I came in the door from 2 different directions, one I happened upon Melissa Phillips blog and loved and still love her style, and I saw the Every Day Button Bits in Paper Crafts magazine and thought it was such a brilliant idea. Some of my first sets were Fly Away, Enjoy the Ride, On the Couch, and my love for PTI grew from there. I am constantly challenged to try something new. I love the way each stamp set has limitless options, and that images are taken apart for easy building of colors or scenes. My wish list is always longer then my budget so I am around for the long haul. On a side note I started my company just a month before PTI started so we are celebrating together.

  • 387
    Helen F. says:

    What a sweet idea! Happy Birthday and thanks for all the fun celebrations.
    My first ‘stalking’ of PTI was in 2008, I had my DH create my BLOG so I could enter challenges on the site in February 2009; my first stamps from PTI are from the August 2009 Release. So well used, but still going strong 🙂 Nicole’s and the DT’s blogs are my first visit every morning for the creativity and inspiration that has me STILL making cards after 15 years! YIKES~that’s a whole lotta cards…thank you PTI.

  • 388
    Martha D. in ga says:

    I found PTI from a post on the Splitcoast Stampers site. It was for the very first release back in 2007. I remember wondering why there was only 1 set to purchase. I was hooked very quickly and have purchased nothing but PTI since then. The site and all the blogs are a constant source of inspiration and encouragement. Not sure I would still be stamping if it were not for PTI, it all fits into my CAS style. Thank you for sharing it all with us.

    I got interested in PTI’s products because I kept seeing them used on projects/cards in craft magazines. I loved the images and checked out your website. I was hooked from that time on! You guys are my favorite company and I have way too many items from you (and eagerly awaiting every new release to add to my stash!) I even got my sisters hooked on your products too! 🙂 You guys are awesome! Keep the fun coming! Happy 7th Anniversary!

    Debbie says:

    Happy 7th Anniversary, PTI! I was first introduced to PTI in 2009 while searching the internet for inspiration. I happened upon, the very talented, Debbie Olson’s blog, Thinking Inking (so sad she is leaving PTI). I was in complete awe of all her creations! Then I clicked on the link to Papertrey Ink. WOW!!! I remember spending hours on the computer looking at all the gorgeous projects, and making lists of all the products I wanted to purchase. My family and friends never have a problem with buying me a gift, because PTI gift cards are always a perfect fit!

    Papertrey Ink has added order to my life! Before I just couldn’t figure out how to organize everything. Now I know I have paper to match my ink and all my stamps are organized in labeled containers. And I love the collection I’m building! I’m really loving all the new products coming out, can’t wait to order!

    I believe I purchased my first PTI stamp set sometime in 2007 and still use it regularly – Butterfly Kisses! And although I purchase sporadically, depending on the exchange rate, I really wish I could buy everything, every release. I love it all!

    Michelle Bala says:

    I believe I have been a customer since 2010! I discovered PTI when visiting a cardmakers blog and admiring the stamps she used…that was all I needed to become hooked! The PTI staff are wonderful! I remember receiving a set of stamps with an order, but the stamps were not on the order form. I sent an email to customer service and was headed out the door to return the stamps, when Jennifer Elifson called to tell me they were a free set…a ‘thank you’ set!!! Amazing!!! Thank you, PTI!

    Kerry says:

    Wow. What does PTI mean to me? For five plus years PTI has meant quality products, amazing inspiration, blessed understanding for my obsession, and tons of incredible anticipation release after release. But the most important aspect of PTI for me has been the people. Nichole herself, the behind-the-scenes staff, the designers, and my fellow crafters. The forum where I have met such wonderful friends. And the fabulous events that have brought us together. PTI is a LOT more than a company to me.

    I’ve been following Papertrey Ink since the very beginning. I remember the early announcements on Splitcoaststampers. I didn’t buy anything the first year due to a limited budget, but I’ve been a loyal customer ever since. It’s been really fun to watch the company grow over the years. Papertrey Ink has touched my life many ways. Participating in the blog hop and other challenges has gotten me stamping regularly. My favorite memory will always be doing Stamp-a-Faire last year with my daughter and then being lucky enough to win Top Chef! I’m looking forward to this year’s travel theme. It’s already on my calendar. 🙂

    Darnell says:

    That was fun! A nice change from Valentines and a great idea to mail the cards! Best of all is the photos of all the participants. It’s wonderful to put faces with so many of the names of my blogging friends!! Hugs, Darnell

    I discovered PTI in 2008. I found the boards in 2009 which have been wonderful as everyone on there is so helpful and encouraging. When you combine great, well made products with awesome customer care you can only succeed! Well done PTI, wishing you many more fabulous years ahead!

    Bonnie T. says:

    I discovered Papertrey ink sometime in 2009 or 2010 after I saw a card in Paper Crafts magazine using a really cute stamp set (I can’t even remember which one now…LOL). I’ve been hooked ever since. The amazing design team has had the biggest impact on me and my creativity. Getting to see so many projects using the same materials from designers that span the card making spectrum of styles really gave me insight to my own style – what I like, what I don’t care for, what influences me – and helped me pull my crafting style together into a more cohesive, comprehensive presentation.

  • 425
    Karen P. says:

    Can’t remember the exact year that I discovered PTI but problably five or six years ago. My girlfriend was over and we were surfing the net for cards and found PTI. We oowed and awhed for over an hour but needless to say we stopped our search and just look at the cards and stamps on PTI. This has been my favorite company ever since. Thanks PTI is has been an awesome 5 or 6 years.

    I bought my first PTI stamp set in 2007, Borders and Corners (Square) and ever since my sister who lives in another city and I have been stamping and exchanging cards. We often challenge each other with the new releases. It’s our way of being close even if miles separate us. We look forward to many more years of releases!

  • 430

    I discovered PTI early in my card-making days — I was definitely using these in 1998. I’ve celebrate many friends’ and family milestones with PTI cards — birthdays, births, weddings, jobs, get wells, and for some sad occasions as well. I really love PTI products.

  • 431
    Lee Anne says:

    Loved today’s post with the birthdays and leaves!

    My heartwarming story occurred almost three years ago. I was part of a blogging group and we grew pretty tight. When my life took a tragic turn, the girls organized themselves by sending me cards, care packages and fabulous well-wishes. It’s one of the reasons that I made it through the dark times. Thank you PTI for facilitating that!

    Gorgeous samples today…
    so excited for this release and all the new monthly series…
    can’t wait to see what’s in store for the coming year!
    I don’t have any life altering stories but I do have to give a HUGE thank you to Julie for helping make my baby child’s birthday cards. 🙂
    I had ordered 7th Inning Stretch stamp and dies for his birthday this past May and of course because I’m a pro procrastinator I didn’t even begin to start on them till just a few days beforehand…
    to which I discovered that during the die coating process mine weren’t “cleaned” well and a couple of shavings were coated onto the baseball bat die which left an imprint on the die cut.
    I contacted CS and Julie responded and requested a pic of the defective die and within a couple of days…
    I had a replacement in hand and could finish my little guy’s card’s in time for his big day. 🙂

    Carol B says:

    I was a huge fan of yours, Nichole, when you were a part of Paper Crafts magazine and I remember when you started PTI, so I’ve been here since the very beginning! I haven’t always been able to afford a monthly purchase of PTI goodies, however, I’ve amassed a small, but well loved selection of PTI products that I use a lot in my card making. I consider PTI to definitely be the leader and ground breaker in the photo polymer stamp explosion, and each month PTI never ceases to amaze as a trendsetter. It is clear that all the other stamp companies out there follow PTI’s lead in design and innovation. Congratulations on your 7th birthday!

  • 443

    Yeay for more birthday sets!!! I think it is probably my most card making reason and it gets old using the same sets all the time. I became a Papertrey customer a few years ago. Maybe 2009. I LOVE the style and variety of the products. It would have been fun to make and send a card to the warehouse, but I checked too late tonight.

    Deb H says:

    A friend showed me PTI’s paper and I ordered some in 2011. Then I started checking out Nicole’s blog. And now I love visiting Nicole’s and all the design team blogs, and the PTI Forum and Pinterest. I have learned so much about the art of card making, techniques of papercrafting and design elements. I am grateful to have found you all, including also all who contribute in the MIM, Blog Hops, Forum, Stamp-aFaire, and challenges. And customer service has been very helpful and supportive of my needs.
    Thank you all.

    Barb W says:

    I have been with PTI since the first set was released. I wish I could remember all the details, but right after finding PTI I found Dawn and her blog, and I remember posting about PTI looking at her work. I can’t take any credit, but it sure makes me feel good, getting PTI and Dawn all wrapped up in one beautiful package. The creativity that you share month after month is all the therapy a person needs!!!

    I have been a PTI customer since November 2012 when I saw an image of one of your stamps in a magazine. I thought it was just so beautiful I simply had to have it. Since then I have been wonderfully pleased with all the items I have purchased and most especially with the terrific service I received with my last order which was lost for a while but eventually delivered to me. Your customer service was excellent. I eagerly await each month to see what wonderful new treasures you will unveil. Congratulations on a wonderful 7 years. Cheers.

    I can’t quite remember when I discovered PTI, I believe it was through Michelle Wooderson’s blog many moons, or should I say over 100 sets ago. All of my cards are made with at least 1 paper trey stamp. I am loving everything that I have seen so far, especially with Heather’s Monthly Moments. Can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us.

    I have to thank the very talented Joy Taylor from Australia (Less is More). I sent her an email about a card she had made asking what was the medallion used, she replied – it’s PTI. I emailed her back and then asked what’s PTI?!? As they say…the rest is history. Now I just need to figure out to get a bigger budget as my wish list continues to grow.

    Beverly Perdue says:

    I found PTI in 2011. I saw it in a paper craft magazine and looked in up online. I absolutely love PTI. It is my favorite website. I love the stamp sets and matching dies, the quality paper, and the matching inks and ribbons, the blog and the wonderful inspiration from the designers. I could go on and on. I have referred many of my friends and family members to PTI. They are hooked too. Thanks PTI for all the great products. Happy 7th Anniversary!

    Lynne S in GS says:

    I found Papertrey Ink in 2009 while trying to find stamps that matched a spellbinders die. Not only did I find what I was looking for but SO much more. The talent and inspiration from all the design team members past and present have been such a blessing. The quality of the product is top-notch, and sets the standard for me and any craft purchases I make. It’s my favorite! Thanks so much

    Sandy Handrich says:

    I actually stumbled upon PTI about 3 yrs. ago while watching a gal on you tube who posts card making videos. She was always talking about PTI and using the products.I had never seen stamps with matching dies and I loved what I saw. So I googled it and I’ve been hooked ever since. It has sparked an old passion for card making. Thank you so much! Love the birthday text block!!

You will always be my favorite stamp company!

  • 467
    Susan says:

    LOVE that birthday die! I have been a customer for 6 years if not from the beginning. My first purchase that brought me to PTI was the borders and corners stamp sets that coordinated with the spellbinders dies! I also loved the quality of the clear stamps. And then one of my favorite blogs to follow joined the design team -Dawn McVey and I was all in and totally hooked!!!!!!

  • 468
    LaurieJ says:

    Ooh, love the new Text Block Birthday die!

    I became a PTI customer back in February 2007. PaperTray was my first set (obviously) and it is still one of my ‘go to’ sets. I’m pretty sure that I first found out about PTI through your posts on Split Coast Stampers, and I started following your blog at the same time.

    For months, no years, I looked at Papertrey stamps and thought “I don’t know, I’m just not sure…” I didn’t know anything about stamping. I scrapped but didn’t stamp. Fast forward to today. No more scrapping and now I’m card making. I took the plunge and bought a set of Papertrey stamps, I think it was Lovely Leaves in 2012 and that was IT! What great fun it is to look forward to new sets and new ideas every month. Stamping has takes me to my happy place.

    I started visiting your blog a couple of months after you started in 2007 and the first stamp set I bought was Holiday Treats,which I still love and use every year.

    Shirley K says:

    I think I came across Papertrey Ink 5-6 years ago through a scrapbooking friend. I saw a few projects on the blog, but didn’t really keep up with PTI until a couple years after that, when I re-discovered all the great releases and inspiration each month. The designs are great and the stamps are such good quality – you can really tell the difference compared to some other companies!

    Since this card is going to the warehouse, I wanted to tell them thanks for all of the special things they do to keep us happy. I have never had a company take such care with their products. I was about ready to give up on card making because I just couldn’t find a style I was happy with. I found it in PTI. Happy Birthday PTI

  • 484
    Laura Boyd says:

    I discovered PTI at the end of 2009. By February 2010 I was hooked on the monthly release countdown and a regular purchaser. Once I started using the cardstock, I was hooked. It is used on every card I make and I have given away almost every other cardstock I had. I love to color with copic markers and when searching which cardstock to use, I found PTI was used, and that started my love with PTI. I have been stamping for over 20 years, but my PTI stamps are the most used in my collection. Thank you for all the great products and wonderful inspiration you give us each month.

    I started noticing all these amazing cards showcased in stamping and paper-crafting magazines back in 2010 and wondered who the heck you were, since I hadn’t seen your products in the stores. I went online and found PTI and fell in love. I got my first sets in June of 2010 and have become pretty much addicted. I love Dawn’s new monthly birthday sets-how great to be able to do such a customized card for someone special, they will really feel it was made just for them! Thanks so much for all the wonderful products and ideas you offer.

    Carolyn Ruiz says:

    Thank you for such a fun weekend. I didn’t have time to enter all of the contests but enjoy looking through them and admiring all of the talent out there. I first discovered papertrey about 5 years ago. I saw a card by them in a magazine and it used the button bits stamp set. I had never seen anything so cute before! It took the popped up images a whole step further for me. I wrote down the name of the website and looked it up as soon as I got home from the store. And I fell in love!!!!!! The quality of the products are amazing, the colors are beautiful and I love the coordinating dies and buttons. Thanks for the wonderful ideas and great products. Cheers!!!

    I do believe I found Papertrey in 2007, I remember Heather and her Kraft paper….I love using Kraft as well. My first stamp was Background Basics by Lisa Johnson. I so love that you have called out who designed what now on the Store. I know I was enthralled with SCS so that is how I “found” you!! (Geez, if I had known there was a test, I would have written all this down.) lol…Love Papertrey, good thing you don’t have the ordering prior to 2010…I would be in big trouble!!!

    Amy G. says:

    My first PTI order was in March 2008. I ordered a package of Stamper’s Select White card stock and the Mixed Messages stamp set. After I touched the paper and saw the crisp, clear images I stamped, there was no turning back for me. It was a little later when I discovered the forum… and then Nicole’s blog… and then the design team blogs. I was one of the lucky ones who got to attend the first Stamp-a-faire in Cincinnati and meet and stamp with some of my stamping heroes. I’ve also participated in both online Stamp-a-faire events. PTI has given (okay, SOLD) me the tools and freely given the inspiration and knowledge to become a better stamper. In addition, PTI has helped me find other people who share, understand, and even encourage my obsession.

    Marybeth says:

    I started my blog in Nov. Or dec. of 2009 just so I could play in MIM…..I must be getting old because I don’t remember how I found PTI but I feel blessed every day that I did. I never would have started a blog or met so many wonderful friends if if were not for Papertrey Ink. Thank You and Happy 7th Birthday.

    JulieZ says:

    I became a Papertrey fan only about a year or two ago. But that’s just because it’s when I first heard about PTI. The paper crafting industry is just SO wide these days; it’s easy to miss this company or that depending on what “circles” you follow. Plus, since I’m a stamper from WAY back (over 30 years stamping) and I was a bit of a “rubber purist” (since many of the early clear stamps weren’t the greatest quality). But after hearing so many great things about PTI & seeing so many great projects by various designers (before I even started following the PTI blog); I decided to give PTI a try. And once I got my first sets & dies; I was SO impressed that I have never looked back! There absolutely is a difference in the quality of different clear stamps & PTI makes the best! I’d love to have it ALL 😉 Happy Birthday PTI – wishing you many many more!!

  • 495
    Gina Eggebrecht says:

    I discovered PTI in December 2008 while searching for a favor to make for my oldest daughter’s birthday party. We discovered (together) the “Rice Krispie Treat Ice Cream Cone” on the introduction post for the soon-to-be-headed-to-The-Vault set “Love Songs.” We loved the favor idea (and used that) but also fell in love with the PTI stamps. A very demanding baby boy along with my beginning to homeschool meant I had *zero* time to craft – so I just followed blogs until April 2011 when I CASEd a Mother’s Day card Betsy had published in PaperCrafts. I ordered everything I needed (plus some!!) to make that card and I was hooked.

    There have been several times that I’ve tried to include a fun little note to the Pickers & Packers on my order – because I know they work HARD – especially at release time. I’ve always smiled when unpacking my order to find a handwritten note back to me. I love that touch of personal service.

    Happy birthday, PTI!! Wishing you many more!

    Shout out to the staff in the warehouse – great job & happy 7th anniversary! I remember when I was browsing a craft magazine and spied a pretty card using a stunning patterned paper. I looked at the supply list and found it came from Papertrey Ink. I went home and looked them up online. That’s when I discovered the borders and corners stamp sets. Oh, how I lusted after those stamp sets! My only experience with clear stamps was with the cheapie acrylic kind and that didn’t impress me much. After lurking for about a year, I finally placed an order. PTI stamps really stamp like a dream and I’ve been hooked ever since! My favorite PTI experience was indeed attending the very first Stamp-A-Faire in Cincinnati. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I am so thankful to have had the opportunity. Thanks to everyone on the PTI team for all the inspiration and dedication!

    It’s hard to think back when PTI wasn’t part of my life and that is because it has become such a big part of my life! I would say that finding PTI is what turned me from being a scrapper to a full fledged card maker! I LOVE PTI & all of the fabulous people associated with it. I have grown soooooooo much as a stamper since discovering PTI I believe it was in 2010, although it seems like longer than that. PTI’s products & team is second to none & think it could also help explain where ALOT of my money goes….LOL. I get so excited for the countdown each month and then I’m so sad when it’s over but then I’m usually stalking the mailman waiting on my package:) And then it’s always exciting to look forward to the Anniversary/Birthday Party each year. You never cease to amaze me with all of the beyond fabulous things you come up with each and every month, year, etc. I just can’t imagine life without my PTI ! So please do me a huge favor (as well as everyone else) and make sure that doesn’t happen!!!! Thank you all for making our days & crafting so much brighter!!!!

    Kristy V. says:

    I found PTI seven years ago, just two months after the first sets were introduced. I’ve been a devoted customer since then. My craft room sort of looks like the PTI warehouse, but on a much smaller scale. Papertrey Ink has shaped my card making and craftiness. I love the designs, the quality, the design team, Nichole, and all of the other people and things that go into making Papertrey Ink what it is today.

    Sherrie M. says:

    PTI has been a big part of my life since 2011. I was a scrapbooker but became a card maker when I found PTI’s wonderful papers, inks, and stamps. Making cards has given me a creative outlet I was sorely lacking and I hope that the pretty cards I have made and sent have brightened someone’s day. The people I have met on the forum are wonderful, supportive, and are the only people who can understand why I jump out of bed at 7am on the 5-15th every month!

    I started following your blog in 2008. I don’t remember how I found it. I officially became a customer in 2009 at the CHA Super Show in Chicago. I remember that the PTI booth was the one I was most excited to visit at the show! I couldn’t wait to see your products in person! I went straight to your booth when I got there. I was blown away by how nice everyone was and the great make ‘n takes! After the show, I was lucky to be a giveaway winner of one of the kites hanging in your booth. That kite is still hanging in my craft room today!

    I handmade my 250 invitations for my Fall 2011 wedding. We had a fall theme. I die-cut hundreds(!) of Leaf Prints to use on my invites and in our wedding decor. I won’t ever forget those PTI Leaf Prints shapes!

    Love your products and can’t wait to see what you in store for us this coming year!

    I believe I was introduced to you 5 years ago- ‘Life’ was being released that month & I was hooked! My friend, Cindy Holshouser, was the wonderful enabler!!! I’ve been using PTI products consistently since then & LOVE them!! Thank you & Happy 7th Birthday!!!

    Jennifer L. says:

    I think I discovered PTI in 2009. I had been a stamper, but once my first child I was born, I just didn’t have time to stamp and wasn’t too inspired by my rubber stamps. I was thinking of just getting rid of all my stamping stuff. But then a co-worker told me about PTI and I just loved what I saw on your web-site. I placed a small order and started stamping again. Now I have so much PTI stuff! I still don’t have lots of time to stamp, but when I do I’m so inspired by your products and your design team!

    Teena says:

    My first experience with Papertrey Ink was through a friend. She had a couple sets that I borrowed so often she “kindly” urged me to order my own! In 2010, after checking the website to order my own set I fell in love….I would now have a $200 “just one or two stamp sets” order purchased, lol. It’s been true love ever since.

    Last year I was involved in an accident that had me learning to walk again. During my rehab at home I made thank you cards for everyone that visited, brought flowers or treats, or sent cards. I have to say card making was my sanity during those long months… credit card took a beating but I was a happy patient!

    Happy Birthday Papertrey. May your future journey be long and smooth.

    Love the birthday cards and it is always by favorite theme to make cards and also to receive. I first fell in love with Papertrey ink when I saw,”Friends ‘Til the End” stamp set and “In Bloom” Stamp set made their first debut. And to this day I truly adore the elegant style of stamps that Papertrey ink makes and I look forward to their releases every month. thank you!!

    Nancy says:

    In 2009, I decided to start making cards again after a long hiatus. Because my background is in the sciences, I, of course, had to do some research before putting ink to paper. Through a series of searches, links, recommendations and wonderful cards, I found my way to Papertrey. The first set I purchased was Simple Valentine. Oh, how I love that set to this day.

    Whoops, I didnt read the question until i saw some other answers! I discovered PTI in summer 2011 (I think!) through other papercraft blogs and websites, and i ordered the guidelines set a few months later. Since then, I visit this site to find inspiration and challenges on Monday. I also join during the release days, when i learn a ton from the beautiful creations & i get to make sure my pti wish list is growing by leaps and bounds on a regular basis. one day i hope to start tackling the wish list, either when (not if!) i get rich enough and/or when i win one of these generous giveaways!

    I found PTI in Jan 2009, just before your 2nd anniversary. It has been a very expensive 5 years for me, as I have purchased almost everything you’ve made since then! There is no way I could ever pick one thing that’s my favorite, but I LOVE everything PTI does. You have helped me in so many ways to be a better crafter, challenging me with new ideas/techniques, providing me with the best tools in the business, and bringing my crafty friends together to celebrate every new release and give us endless things to talk about. Thanks PTI! You girls are the BEST!

    I don’t remember how I stumbled upon Papertrey Ink a couple of years ago, but I DO remember that I was an INSTANT fan! My husband’s cousin wrote to us a few weeks ago and included a thank you for the beautiful Christmas card I had sent – in fact, she said she saves ALL of the cards I have made over the years and enjoys EVERY Christmas 🙂

    I became a customer of PTI in 2011. I started card making after my wedding, as I wanted truly unique thank you notes, but after I found PTI, my projects were taken to a whole new level! Nichole and the DT have been so inspirational, but honestly, the products speak for themselves. They add the professionalism that I was looking for and couldn’t find in other companies’ products. Just the card stock alone would (almost) be enough! Happy birthday, PTI!…

    I discovered PTI in 2010. I found your products by looking at the supply lists in Papercrafts Magazine. PTI has impacted me, because I am more thoughtful. I give many more cards now than I ever have. I pay attention to birthdays, anniversaries, and other events that I may have overlooked in the past. (guilty face) I also send many thinking of you, thank you, and hello cards. I love sharing the cards I make with people. I know some of my friends have saved their cards for years, and that the cards still bring a smile to their faces. I am a better friend, because I make cards.

    Mateja says:

    I found you about two years ago, when I first started researching cardmaking. I have not jet placed any orders, because of my budget issues and being from Europe things can get quite pracy. I love your dies (the hexagon background die is on my list since I saw it) and your inks and cardstock looks just amazing. I’m just keeping fate that I can place an order as soon as possible 🙂

    Valia says:

    I love cardmaking and as this is not a very widespread hobby in Greece I started digging internet.

    I started my PTI collection after seeing a lovely card using Fruit Fusion Berry mini set and matching paper pack.

I now own a large collection of stamps, dies and paper, and Love them all.

    PTI stamps arrived in my life through my crafting sister H. I do not remember the year, but it must have been in PTI’s early years. Butterflies are my personal symbol. They represent my journey of growth from a caterpillar stage, and the learning process I strive for continuously. With the unconditional love and support of my beloved husband, stamps and card making have allowed me to show love and care to special people in my life. Cheers!

    I’m so excited for this new release! I just started paper crafting the middle of last year and I’m not sure what fabulous artists blog I was visiting but they made this awesome card using the PTI “mega gracious vases” set. I immediatly purches the stamp set with coordinating dies. It was right then that I feel in love PTI. The customer service, shipping and quality and care taken in packaging is amazing. I wish I could remember the blog I was reading that fond day in August of 2013 because I would Thank them again and again for introducing me to a great company with awesome products.

I can’t believe it’s been 7 years!!! Then I stopped teaching piano and there went my stamp $$$, BUT I started a wishlist that is about a mile long and someday I might be able to buy again. Every month I look forward to seeing what’s new and being inspired by all the wonderful people that create for Papertrey. Happy Birthday!!!!
