Stamp-a-faire 2016: Friday Night Gallery Reception

By July 22, 2016Stamp-a-faire

Welcome, welcome, welcome to everyone!  All of us here at Papertrey Ink are so excited for this year’s online Stamp-a-faire event!  It is going to be an amazing opportunity to learn new things, get some stamping done and interact with other paper crafters around the world!


Tonight we are kicking off the festivities with our “Friday Night Gallery Reception”!  We hope to make it a bit easier to wait for the BIG DAY as you put the finishing touches on getting ready for tomorrow!  Feel free to visit our Stamp-a-faire Customer Forum to chat with other stampers that are in the middle of preparations HERE!

In honor of tonight’s “masters” theme (more about that below!) the team and I put together a little something extra special that we just know you are going to love!  Enjoy!!!


How fun was that!  We sincerely hope you enjoyed!  I loved how the amazing creativity of each of the girls was showcased. Seeing them during their process really highlights their dedication and the hard work they put in to each and everything they do!

Did any of the projects the girls created inspire you to create a project of your own? Perhaps you could make a monogram to hang in your studio!


You won’t want to miss out on the amazing inspiration download we have prepared for you in honor of this year’s Stamp-a-faire event! It includes color recipe cards that will be used in one of tomorrow’s challenges, inspiration cards based on masters that each of the team members admire and more. Print the pages and use a binder clip or heavy duty stapler to hold the pages together! Or you can add them to the binder or recipe box you already use for the inspiration cards we provide monthly. Not only will this prove to be a great resource for tomorrow, but you can continue to use it in the future as well!

Earlier this month we challenged all of you to go through your previous creations and find THE PROJECT that you are most proud of! The inLinkz list below is set up to be a gallery of everyone’s favorite masterpieces! We can hardly wait to see you all join in the fun and share your pride and joy!

Two of the participants who post here tonight will be randomly selected to receive a $50 PTI gift certificate and will be announced on our Tuesday night Stamp-a-faire winners post.  You have until 7am ET, Tuesday, July 26th to add your link here, ONE link per person please.  We look forward to seeing what you share as well as having you back here tomorrow for all the Stamp-a-faire festivities!

    Typepad will not let me add my wordpress identity in the specs for my comment, so I’m adding it in the body of my comment. Apple should have fixed this several updates ago…

    What a wonderful, wonderful Stamp-a-Faire!! Heartfelt thanks for all of the amazing techniques from the PTI ‘masters’ of inspiration. I can’t even imagine all of the work involved. I truly enjoyed every moment!

    Thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement on IG. Sharing and connecting with other cardmakers is always a very special part of Stamp-a-Faire. It was such fun to share my Stamp-a-Faire 2016 experience on my blog today. I’m really looking forward to creating with the ‘Art with Heart’ stamp set… and I can’t wait for next year’s big event! ♡
