January 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

By January 15, 2015General



The January Blog Hop is not taking place until January 25th, but we thought we would share the challenge as well as the inspiration photos here to give you a head start.

A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products.   This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.


The actual Blog Hop will take place on January 25th, beginning @ 10 am EST.

Take just a moment, close your eyes and open your heart…think about those you love most…then think about the last time you told them that you love them…the last time you put into words just how much they mean to you.  I challenge you to create a card that is as beautiful inside as it is out.  Your project should incorporate some sort of hearts in the cover design to hint at what's inside.  The interior should be filled with your own heartfelt words to one of the first people you thought of when you began reading this paragraph.  Tell someone how much you love them and remind them why.  After you photograph your card or the blog hop, be sure to address the envelope and mail it to that special someone!

    Is ur online store the only place I can purchase Papertray supplies? And for the blog hop, is there a particular brand of product that has to be used? Can u tell I’ve never participated in a hop? Oh and I don’t have a blog yet. Is that okay?

    We do not own any brick & mortar stores currently, so our online retail site is where we sell our products. Any projects made for the blog hop need to utilize at least one Papertrey product. You do not need a blog to participate, you can also post your photos to an online photo-hosting site such as Flickr or PhotoBucket. We hope to see you there!

    Question regarding Bloghop entries: For those of us who do not have a blog and use flikr there’s no way to show the inside of a card without posting 2 photos. The January bloghop instructions were specifically that the card was to be as nice on the inside as the cover and when I posted the inside of mine the photo was deleted.
