Introducing (part of!) the 2015 Team + Project Favorites

Welcome to the first day of February Anniversary Release festivities!  Everyone at Papertrey Ink has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring you TEN days of fun contests & challenges, prizes, inspiration and SO much more!

Let's kick things off with an introduction to (part of!) the 2015 Papertrey Ink Design Team.  We have some additional announcements to make later on in the week!  I have asked each of today's team members to share eight of their favorite Papertrey projects with you, in honor of our eighth anniversary!

2015-Team

This is an amazing group of women and I just know we are going to have a fabulous year together!  I wanted to take a quick moment to just say thank you, although those two little words don't seem to be big enough to communicate what's in my heart.  Working on a team such as this is high pace and very creatively demanding.  There are a lot of tight deadlines that need to be met, no matter what else might be going on in their busy personal lives.  These women always work hard and push themselves to new creative levels.  They never allow the process to become stagnant, they are always reinventing older products and tools, starting new trends and taking chances.  To me, these women are the definition of creativity.  Not only do they create, but they put their hearts into their works of art.  They are constantly pushing the boundaries of this craft and show all of us that we can do it too.  Without them, the products that you see unveiled each month would not be brought to life.  I am grateful for all that they share with us.  It is such a blessing to see them create month after month, year after year.  Each woman has strengths that they allow to shine and I hope they never lose the ability to continue to share their gifts with all of us!

  Amy

I am pleased to welcome Amy Sheffer as a new member of our Release Design Team!  I have admired her work for some time and she is sure to offer a unique twist on all of your favorite Papertrey Ink products! Her layering and use of embellishments make her projects shine each and every time!

Amy says,"I’m so excited to be joining Papertrey, and what a great month to start! I’m looking forward to a fun-fillled year of getting to know Nichole, the design team, and the fantastic PTI fans; interacting with everyone in the forum; and of course, working with the fabulous product! I got my stamping start with Stampin' Up way back in 2003. When I ventured outside of that bubble a few years later, Papertrey (brand-new then), was my first love. Joining the team is an honor, and feels wonderfully full-circle as well."

Ashley

Ashley says, "Since I joined the Papertrey Ink team in November 2011, the designers  generally check in on one another. We like to make sure we are all hanging in there during the release. Most of the time, many of the design team members are finished with all of their projects and have scheduled blog posts a day or two before the deadline. I find that I'm one of the members who always have a few more projects to complete by the deadline. I think it's funny that month after month, I cannot seem to finish before anyone else. Well, I'm hoping to change that this year and moving forward. Let's see if I can be as efficient as my fellow design team members. They are inspiring in more ways than one!"

Betsy

Betsy says, "I can hardly believe it’s been nearly 6 1/2 years since Nichole first emailed me asking to join the Papertrey team!  I honestly still remember that day like it was last week.  The time has flown by — working with Nichole and the rest of the design team has been such a blessing.  This year has definitely been memorable.  2014 — the year of the paper crimper!  Lots of great laughs behind the scenes too…like the time almost every single person on the team decided to make RED birds for the Songbirds group post.  Or the night before the Uncorked group post when Nichole emailed me after I sent her my project peek that somehow, despite the fact that we are 1000 miles apart we made exactly the SAME card.  2014 was an amazing year here at Papertrey!  I want to thank Nichole for her constant encouragement and for giving me the little (ok, big!) nudge I needed to delve into the design process…it’s been such a rewarding experience and I couldn’t have done it without her.  I’m excited to see all the things in store for 2015 here at Papertrey!"

Danielle

Danielle says, "I have been in the Papertrey Ink family for 4 years now exactly, heading into year 5, and I can honestly say working with Papertrey Ink products is the most fun I've had creating! This past year was very eye-opening for me as a designer. With the introduction of the Monthly Moments line, I was really able to get back to my grass roots of my love of scrapbooking, and for me it was refreshing. It really allowed me to create in my true style and not to forget who I am as a designer, and also to bring that sort of style into my card making with fun techniques like paints and watercolors and layers and such. The creating part for me is truly the most fun…getting messy and watching the project come to life is good for the soul! My talented teammates push me to be better and better, and I love that. Not only are they talented and fun, but they are such genuine people, and I am so blessed to call them friends. I hope my projects continue to inspire you to find your creativity too."

Dawn

Dawn says, "I’ve been working with Papertrey for a long time now…..I joined the design team in July of 2008 (gosh, that’s almost 7 years ago!) and began designing products shortly thereafter, with my very first stamp set (Damask Designs) being released the following February, 2009.  I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed each and every year, working with Papertrey, and have felt extremely grateful to have this amazing job and so blessed to be a part of this team.  Nichole has truly been a dream to work under…..she’s full of grace and kindness and while she’s extremely talented in her own right, she’s so humble and willing to do all that she can to help US to grow in our skills.  As for the girls on the design team, they’re all gems and I’m so glad to call them friends as well as co-workers.  We are all just like you and we get anxious and antsy for our boxes to arrive each month, just like you do!  Someone starts a thread in the design team forum every month, asking if anyone’s gotten their box yet and then one by one, we all chime in as they arrive, because everyone’s so excited to get the next box full of goodies!  And my favorite each month, is when the release is winding down and we’re all tired from working crazy long days trying to keep up with life outside of Papertrey, as well as cranking out all of our design projects for that month, and someone will start a thread checking in on everyone.  We’ll each update on how much work we have left until we finish with the release, and how much craziness may be going on behind the scenes in each household.  I love these ladies and the friendships that have resulted because Papertrey gave us each an opportunity that brought us together.  Thank you so much, Jane, Julie and Nichole, for another wonderful year, working with a company (and people!) that I love so dearly."

Heather

Heather says, "I have been with Papertrey Ink since the very beginning 8 years ago and it has been one of the most special and important things that I have in my life. I look back over the past 8 years at everything that Papertrey Ink has given me and how I have grown as a designer and I am grateful and amazed. The team that I work with here is the best. I was so fortunate to be able to visit with Dawn and her husband Bart this past summer when she was up in Minnesota during her visit to Mayo. It had been quite a few years since we had seen each other in person and that time together (which was way too short!) reminded me again of how lucky I am to count these women as teammates and friends. Through phone calls, texts, cards in the mail, and forum posts we laugh together, celebrate with each other, support each other, pray for each other, and share a passion for creating and sharing beautiful things made with ink, paper, and glue with all of you. Happy Anniversary to all of you at Papertrey Ink and here's to many more!"

Laura

Laura says, "It's hard to believe that it's been a little over a year since I've been on this amazing team, joining in September of 2013. Time certainly does fly when you have new Papertrey Ink goodies to play with. I feel like I'm finally starting to get into the groove of things. It only took me 17 months, lol. I kid you not, for the first several months, I would, just like clockwork, get a big zit on my face during the Papertrey Ink releases. I guess I just put so much pressure on myself, trying to prove somehow to myself and to others that I deserved a spot on this prestigious team. I have so much respect for all who work in front and behind the scenes for PTI and continue to maintain a standard of excellence. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of it and congratulations on eight amazing years!"

Laurie

Laurie says, "Happy 8th Anniversary to PTI!  I can still remember my very first order back in 2008 and can say for sure I have been hooked ever since.  I was so honored to join the team in March of last year, so this last 11 months has just been amazing.  Every time I get a box in the mail, its like Christmas and I still need someone to pinch me!  When I think back over the last year, I am reminded of all of the friendships that I have made through Papertrey Ink.  Those friends are my most favorite part of this amazing hobby!"

Maile

Maile says, "My fondest memory during the last year with PTI was the day I came back from maternity leave.  I took two months off and it was worth it!  But honestly, I did miss my usual PTI routine.  During this time off my fellow design team members were so sweet, offering me congratulations and then a warm welcome back.  Since being with this company for 5 years, it felt so good to back with my PTI family.  These ladies are amazing!"

Melissa

Melissa says, "There is so much to love about being a part of the Papertrey Ink Design Team.  Behind the scenes, these girls are funny, quirky, down-to-earth, and incredibly supportive.  We have shared lots of ups and downs with each other over the years and I am thankful for their caring hearts and listening ears…I much prefer the happy times we share together :).   This year, one of my laugh-out-loud moments was catching a glimpse of Laurie posing with her snazzy, cardstock, Secret Agent, die cut glasses…it’s the little things we girls get a kick out of :)"

In addition to the above Design Team Members, we are also pleased to welcome back two of your favorite stamp designers!

Lexi

Lexi says, "I’m so excited to be back for a fourth year of designing stamps for Papertrey Ink. Having been a customer and fan from the very first set Nichole offered, this continues to be a pinch-me kind of job! When I looked back at my projects from last year, I had trouble picking my top eight – it’s like picking a favorite child. So, to be fair and because I designed eight sets last year, I decided to choose one from each set. Looking at each line up of countdown cards brought back all the memories of creating them. One memory stands out stronger than the others, and that is my participation Stamp-A-Faire. First, I was blown away by how much everyone loved the Trapper Keeper card! And second, it was my first time stamping on camera. Oh, if only I’d saved the outtakes – actually it was probably a good thing my digital memory was limited by a sick laptop at the time, because, really, nobody needs see me throwing a stamp fit! In the end, I loved sharing my projects with you and look forward to challenging myself to create more videos in the year to come!"

Lizzie

Lizzie says, "I’ve been a part of the Papertrey Ink team since 2012, but this past year may have been the biggest one for me yet! For the first time I was able to participate in Stamp-a-faire as a presenter instead of just hanging out cheering from the sidelines. I was so excited to take on the challenge of coming up with techniques and projects, but it also meant I had to step outside my comfort zone and learn how to produce videos. You all should have seen the crazy contraption I put together to hold my camera! I’ll admit (months after the fact), I thought I was way in over my head a couple of times and I still have no idea how I shot in HD (ha!), but I had a wonderful time and your collective enthusiasm gave me the confidence to relax and enjoy the experience. I can’t wait to grow further and share even more with all of you in the coming year!"

Erin3

Now, you may or may not have noticed that Erin Lincoln was not listed above.  Erin has indeed stepped down from her responsibilities as a member of the design team. However, she did so in order to work on an exciting announcement that we look forward to sharing the details of later in the week!  So be on the look out for all of that news!  It's so hard for us to wait, but we're going to try our best to keep our lips sealed!!!

Melissa-Bickford

In closing, I am sad to say that we also have a farewell to share today!  Melissa Bickford has decided to pursue her dreams and focus all of her amazing creative abilities on her newest business venture, Jean and Jo, a monthly box subscription just for women.  We are confident that her talents will take her far, but at the same time we are definitely going to miss having her around these parts!  If you haven't checked out the details behind Jean and Jo yet, you can read all about it HERE!

    I have been a PTI fan since almost the beginning and my love for PTI grows each year-hard to believe that it gets better year after year. I am constantly amazed by the unique and creative products that are released each month and I love that they are affordable so that I on my preschool teacher’s budget can afford to add to my collection bit by bit. My wish list though is a millionaire’s budget:-) I have never met the DT ladies but they bring me so much joy not only with their works of art but with the sharing of themselves month after month. You are truly special people and I thank you all for the happiness that you spread.

I recognize just about every project posted, & could pick who the designer is just about every time. Congrats to Amy- look forward to seeing your creations! And so sad that Melissa is leaving, I’ve enjoyed her stamp lines- best of luck Melissa. Looking forward to 2015 with PTI!

    First, CONGRATULATIONS on well deserved success and longevity. No design team is better and each month I am amazed by the unique new products and creative ways the DT uses them. BRAVO to you all. Second, however, I am so sad to see Melissa leave the team. I love her colorful and cheery designs. Her products have wonderful price points and she creates many projects that I have used as a template for my own cards. I will miss her.

    I think one of the best days in my crafty life is the day I found PTI on a random blog hop. Talk about falling in love at first sight! The images, sentiments, patterns and font are always exactly the ones you’re looking for, and are always the most clever and forward thinking.
    Thank you for so much for putting in so much work to give us all the best inspiration, design team, and welcome Amy! I can’t wait for what’s next!

Not sure I’ve ever stuck with a hobby for this long, but I love the freshness this PTI DT brings to the table on a regular basis. Welcome, Amy! I look forward to getting to know you and learning from you as I have the others on the team. SO excited about this month’s festivities! Let the games begin! 😉

    Congrats on celebrating 8 years!! PTI has the longest section in my ‘if I had unlimited funds’ wishlist. It was fun to see a broad selection of each of your cards to get a feel for your individual styles. I sure appreciate all the inspiring creations as I often bookmark them for future reference once I can acquire the stamps/dies needed. Thanks!

    I’ve been an avid follower ever since the last Stamp-a-faire. Your video tutorials and all the amazing inspiration on the blogs of your design team have really improved my card making skills. As a member of management in a national paper crafting chain, this has been so helpful. Thank you to your whole team and I look forward to seeing what Amy brings to the table.

    I would like to say CONGRATULATIONS to PTI on 8 wonderfully creative years!I have been a customer since 2012 and in that time I have been truly inspired. I am so glad I found you guys!! A big THANK YOU to the design team – you guys are truly the bomb! I am amazed every month with your creations! A huge WELCOME to Amy Sheffer! I look forward to seeing what you will be sharing with us. And BEST OF LUCK to Melissa and Erin. I must say that I am excited to find out about whats next for Erin! Oh the suspense!!! LOL!! Also, I am loving this new look of the blog!!!

    Congrats Nichole and team on 8 wonderful, creative years! I can remember from the beginning…each month since then is always an event with the lead up to reveal. I am always surprised at the creativeness that is generated from the DT and every month, when you think “it can’t get any better than this” seems outdone from the next! Don’t know how you all do that. Love the group posts and the stamp set “revisited” posts. Laura has taught me to LOVE rainbow coloured cards this year.
    I am over the moon happy to see Amy join this team! I have been a fan for a very long time!
    Congrats to each and every one of you! Looking forward to this anniversary’s shindig 🙂

You have made such a difference in my life…more than you could ever know. I’ve been here for more than five years and I can’t wait to see what Year 8 brings. Welcome, Amy! Best wishes, Melissa B. Unbelievably happy to see the PTI family moving ahead together: Dawn, Betsy, Heather, Melissa, Danielle, Laurie, Laura, Ashley, Lizzie, Lexi, Maile, and Erin. Thank you to Nichole, Jane, and Julie, and all the staff behind the scenes.
    Love you all….truly! Congratulations on eight wonderful years!

    Happy Birthday PTI!! Nichol said it so well – it’s SO true; this whole team BRINGS THE PRODUCTS TO LIFE with their amazing creations. I can’t tell you how many times I wasn’t sure if I liked a certain item until I saw what the ladies did with it & then it was “gotta have it!” Always amazing inspiration!!

    Welcome Amy – I really enjoyed looking through your blog & splitcoast gallery this morning! Can’t wait to see what fun projects you will bring to PTI!
    And Best of luck to the retiring PTI ladies – you’re all the best and deserve nothing but the best in your future endeavors!!

    Congratulations on your 8th anniversary. I have been a fan since April 2010. I had no experience and with the help of a friend, she also introduced me to Papertrey Ink, my adventure into card making began. What a fun, challenging, and sometimes exasperating hobby. I really enjoy it! Looking forward to this next year and all of the exciting new techniques I will be learning. Thank you ladies!

  • 57
    Amy Gutknecht says:

    Thank you to all the PTI design staff! Their individual style and the various ways they each interpret how the PTI products can be used inspire me every month to fill my cart (and my craft room) with some of the loveliest products on the market. I’ve been a loyal PTI customer for 5 years and it’s because I’m so inspired. I actually get up early on the 5th-9th every month so I can check out Nicole’s blog. So thank you for all you do!

    Congratulations on your 8th year! I’ve been a fan of PTI for about 5 years now and am completely enthralled each month with the new releases. You have the best design team ever and the best products in this market! I’m excited to see more of the new design team members and of course keeping up with the design team members who are enjoying another year with you. I’m super excited to hear what Erin Lincoln has planned because I know it will be awesome! Melissa Bickford and her sweet designs will be greatly missed but I’m sure she’ll be met with much success on her new venture.
    Happy Anniversary PTI! Here’s to another 8 years!

    Karen says:

    I’d have to check to be sure, but I think I’ve been following PTI and the DT for at least 7, if not all of the 8 years you’ve been in business. My collection of stamps is way bigger than I ever imagined it would be because of the fabulous designs you and your team create. I follow the DT on my Feedly account, and many of your recent additions to the DT were stampers I was already following. Looking forward to the anniversary celebration, as always!

PTI family thanks for making creating fun every single month! Looking forward to another incredible year of innovation, inspiration and illustrious products to love! Blessings to you all!

  • 70

    I remember when I first set eyes on Papertrey Ink in 2008, and let me just say I was BLOWN AWAY!

    Congratulations on your 8th anniversary. I have only been around for this last half, but what a fantastic ride it has been. Thank you so much for your amazing products and incredible inspiration, month after month after month. Your team of designers makes me want to buy products that I would have no idea what to do with if I only saw the product on its own. I love all the amazing projects you all show with every release. Thanks also for the Make it Monday series–I have learned so many techniques from those videos. Also, I have to say that your prices are so very reasonable, compared to practically every other company around, and I really appreciate how you are able to make so many high quality products so affordable for the average crafter. OK, love-fest paused (for now). Need to go create.

    Kathy Mc says:

    Congratulations, PTI, on your 8th Anniversary! Let the fun begin for at least another 8 years. : ) My daily morning fix is to check Nichole’s blog, read the Forum and then see what else is out there. I don’t even need Bloglovin’ because I’ve got the DT’s websites memorized. Even though I’ve never met any of them in person, I feel like I know them from “hanging” with them around the PTI world. Welcome, Amy, and sorry to lose Melissa but I was afraid her other venture might take over. And, I’m not totally surprised about Erin because I figured something was up due to her lack of presence lately. Can’t wait to learn more about what’s in store for her. WTG, PTI!

    Happy Anniversary Papertrey Ink & Team!!!! I made a comment in the forum a few weeks ago that the announcements of people leaving is always the worst part of the anniversary festivities. I’m so happy that I didn’t have too much of a heart attack this morning…only because we were told that Erin is stepping down because she is part of something new and wonderful coming. Whew!! That was a close one, although I know Melissa will be missed. I wish Melissa much success! The part I don’t mind is Additions to the Awesome PTI Team!! Welcome Amy!! Can’t wait to see your magic unfold with PTI. I’m so grateful for this company and its second to none team!! You all provide me with a lot of joy in the many struggles of my daily life. Papertrey products & Team is such a bright light in my life. It’s amazing what these awesome products, some paper, ink, and glue can do for myself and the ones I share it with!!!! Congrats on 8 awesome years!! I look forward to many, many more!!!!

    Susie says:

    I was absolutely thrilled to read the newsletter today, and I’ll tell you why.

    When I first starting stamping in 2010 the first project I saw was a beautiful Christmas House designed by Melissa Phillips. I was mesmerized! I was in a stamp store in Peoria, Arizona and picked up a Card Magazine, bought it, took it home and read it cover to cover. That magazine opened up a whole new world of crafting to me. I had never stamped let alone blogged. What was a blogger? I found Melissa’s blog and was hooked AND then I found Amy Sheffer’s blog.

    I have had the pleasure of meeting Amy several times, each time was a delight. Amy helped me get my blog up and going. Over the years Amy has dropped my blog to leave me notes of encouragement. I couldn’t be happier to see the news that Amy is now part of the Papertrey Ink line up of spectacular designers. And I can’t think of a papercrafting company that I love and return to more often than Papertrey Ink!

    AllysonA says:

    I absolutely adore the Papertrey Ink Design Team. I never fail to find wonderful inspiration at their blogs, and I’m excited to see most of them back for more.

Looking back over some of the first Make It Monday videos and just reading back on the early days of the blog….have just loved being on this journey with the PTI team over the years. The team has changed, but always, always there has been an over abundance of talent and inspiration. Good luck to Melissa. Can’t wait to hear more about Erin. Thank-you ALL design team (past and present) for the fun you have brought to my life!

    Happy Anniversary PTI! Eight years is quite an accomplishment but no surprise as you’ve got the best stamps in the biz 🙂 (and dies, and cardstock, ink etc etc). Not only the best products but a pretty wonderful team in general: your customer service is tops. And there’s quite a fabulous community in the forum. I’ve got a little PTI addiction going on due to the incredibly talented design team enabling me every month. Thank you to every one of those ladies for all the inspiration. And welcome Amy – so excited to see your contributions!

    Congratulations on Papertrey Ink’s 8th Anniversary Nichole! I was lucky to find your wonderful company about a year ago. What has impressed me the most is the recognition you give your design team members. With many stamp companies, one never knows who the designer actually is! I love getting to know these women and visiting their blog sites for even more inspiration. And I love PTI – such a unique company with quality products, a talented creative designer team, and all the sharing you do to teach, inspire and help others to develop their own talents!

    Best Wishes to Melissa Bickford and Erin Lincoln in their new endeavors and Welcome Amy Scheffer to the 2015 PTI designer team!

    Happy 8th Anniversay!!! I want to thank Ms.Nichole Heady and all her team including all the past and present design team members for my go to pit stop for inspiration,ideas,learning new techniques and so much more. Eight years is a long time to stay in crafting business and I wish you many more wonderful years to come. I say long as I feel grateful to have followed Papertrey ink and it has been a part of my life journey as I became very blessed with three kiddo (touch wood) during those years as well. So, you can imagine I would have to play catch up many times as I wouldn’t find the time with my evolving busy life schedules but it would always be a pleasure to go back and catch up on the blog posts and video tutorials of my favorite design team members. Thank you!!!
