Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2008

2008

Today we are diving into the year 2008!

Shuttle Endeavour lifts off in a rare night time launch for a 16 day mission to the International Space Station.

Michael Phelps brings home a record eight gold medals for men's swimming from the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.

Mad-men

Mad Men won it's first Emmy for "Outstanding Drama Series". The hit show would go on to dominate this category through 2011.

Blu ray

Sony’s Blu-ray HD format now has about 70 percent of the new high-definition market and is expected to win over the rival format, HD DVD.

 

This was a big year for Papertrey Ink, with lots of basics being introduced, that still stand the test of time today. We debuted our very first pad of paper in 2008, developing our signature wrap around cover for easy storage. Polka Dot Basics stamp set quickly became a permanent fixture on nearly every stamper's desk.

Quilter's Sampler was one of our top selling products for that year, prompting an additions set to be released just a few months after the original. Of course, the most memorable milestone for Papertrey Ink that year was the kick off of our color collection, including ink, cardstock and ribbons.

Bitty Baby Blessings is the baby set you have always wanted. This set features classic baby images in large and small scale which include: an elephant, duck, bunny, sailboat, carriage & onesie. The miniature images fit perfectly on the front of the onesie and on the sail of the boat. These images were also designed to fit in the open centers of our label stamps found in Holiday Treats & Limitless Labels. With many sentiments to utilize as well, you’ll never need another baby set again!

Melissa says, "I have always loved Papertrey Ink's Flower Garden stamp set, but more now than ever before as I've been exploring new techniques.  This stamp set lends itself to many different types of techniques that I am excited to try.  My card today uses my watercolors and heavy embossing, which is one of my most favorite techniques right now.  Next, I can't wait to see what will happen as I try paper-piecing with this sweet set."

    Honey Bees is my favorite set from 2008. I cannot count the times I’ve used the grass stamp and all of those little flowers! Endless possibilities. Funny thing, I’ve rarely used the bees πŸ™‚

    Debbie P says:

    I think either Floral Frenzies or Warm Happiness would be my choices for 2008. Sadly, I do not own either.

    Heart Prints…There were several sets that I really like and enjoy using, but Heart Prints comes out every year around this time and stays out through May. It is the definition of timeless for me.

    DGolly says:

    There are so many stamp sets to choose from in 2008. But the one I come back to and use all the time is Heart prints.

    Cindy O says:

    Beautiful stamps featured today, especially Bitty Baby Blessings. The only 2008 set I own is Simple Alphabet, so I’ll choose it for my favorite! Why it’s such a great set for me: upper and lower case letters with numbers and punctuation, a simple font in a size that works well with other sentiments, well-cut rectangles to make it easy to line up the letters close together, enough extra letters to make words, and an index sheet so I can find what I’m looking for.

    Isabel Z says:

    I love Floral Frenzy because all these years later, I still reach for it. I love the floral images for their simplicity and the sentiments are so thoughtful.

    Flower garden or Garden of Life are my favorites from 2008. So timeless!

  • 9
    Cyndie says:

    2008 was a great year! For me it’s a toss up between Birthday Basics (so useful to have nice birthday sentiments for inside as well as outside the card) and Quilter’s Sampler, from which I made many homespun style cards, for birthdays, Mother’s Day and baby cards.

    Angela Vacinek says:

    Polka Dot Basics was my favorite for 2008. It was hard with heart prints in there and also bitty baby, but polka dot basics is a classic staple and therefore my favorite from that year πŸ™‚

  • 34
    Sharri Reeves says:

    My favorite set from 2008 would have to be First Fruits. I grew up on a wheat farm in Oklahoma and every Sunday at church during offering we would sing about giving our first fruits to the Lord.

  • 35
    Joyce says:

    Polka Dot Basics is still a go to for me. It’s perfect for adding just a little texture or pop of color. I think it’s one of my most used. The CD case has seen better days for sure!

  • 44
    Jeni says:

    There were so many great sets in 2008 it’s hard to choose a favorite. Polka Dot Basics is definitely up there. It’s one I still use today & is great for adding just a little something to a card from when it needs just a little “pop”.

  • 45
    Deepa M. says:

    I love several sets that were released in 2008, but I probably use the Polka Dot Basics set (along with the other 2 polka dot sets released later) the most. I love being able to make my own polka dot background in any color, and also have embossed polka dot paper in any color I want. Polka dots just make everything better! πŸ™‚

    I really love that you are showing stamp sets from the past years. I can’t believe all that I missed! I’m also enjoying going month to month, year by year to catch up, and find the year and month many of my PTI sets were made. I have Boards and Beams and Home for the Holidays from 2008, and I think I bought them in 2016. Bitty Baby Blessings could be in my future.

  • 67

    It’s such fun to look back together! I just discovered Papertrey Ink three years ago and it has quickly become my very favorite stamp company. I love all of the florals and Bitty Baby Blessings is a bundle of joy. I think the oldest PTI stamp in my collection is Quilter’s Sampler. It’s a real treasure! β™‘

  • 68
    Greta H says:

    The only 2008 set I own is Guidelines, which I bought from someone selling it. Then I forgot what I thought I could do with it, so it’s never been used. One of my goals this year is to make something with it! I also wanted the snowflakes before they went into The Vault, but didn’t let myself get them. Heart Prints is still on my wishlist. Love that you’re reviewing year by year–so fun! Beautiful projects–congrats to the highlighted customers!

  • 75
    Nancy M says:

    Birthday Basics is my most used set out of all the sets that PTI has released. The mix of fonts and sizes of “happy birthday” come to the rescue when I’m trying to fit the stamp to my design. And the sentiments with their simple font complement any design and are gender neutral. This set is as close to perfect as you can get. (I wish you would try for perfection and release a Birthday Basics 2.)

    So many excellent sets came out in 2008. I love Out on a Limb and Teacher’s Apple – use them still; but I think my favorite would be Birthday Basics – I love the combo of fonts and inside/outside sentiments.

  • 79
    Lori Lehanne says:

    I have so many favorite sets from 2008 but I can confidently put Wise Owl and Teachers Apple (still my favorite teacher set) at the top for the year. I also really enjoyed Birds of a Feather and the beautiful font it used for the sentiments.

  • 83
    Vicki Finger says:

    Everyday Blessings would have to be my favorite from 2008. I see it is still available and I need to add that to my cart! I think I love it because it’s a reminder not to take “stuff” too seriously and remembering to be thankful for the blessings we do have.

  • 84
    LR says:

    I have always loved the Quilter’s Sampler and I think Bitty Baby Blessings is an adorable set. Garden of Life is a wonderful floral set and I remember falling in love with the bag that Nichol made with it! I found Everyday Blessings, which a customer designed, very inspirational and still enjoy using it.

  • 85
    Cynthia says:

    Birthday Basics is an easy pick for me. I use it all the time! Wow, can’t believe it’s from 2008; that’s likely about the time I got it, so many years of use with many more to come!

    Out on a Limb is my favorite because it is the first stamp set I saw of yours in Paper Crafts magazine. I love the beautiful stamp set and came to your website to check it out. The rest is history. My credit card statement has Papertrey Ink on it every month… sigh…

    I love all of the stamp sets featured here, but I would have to say that my favourite stamp set of 2008 is Polka Dot Basics – this is probably my most used Papertrey Ink stamp set. It is a solid basic that can be used in so many ways – love it!

    Since I love birds and bird stamps I really like out on a limb and birds of a feather.

    Chris L says:

    I think my favorite set from 2008 was Birthday Basics–it is such a classic and a set I am still using! Women of Life is also one of my favorites!

  • 97
    Denise Bryant says:

    Made of Snow is one of my favorites from 2008! I have a ‘thing’ for snowmen, and I tend to collect them! It’s a charming stamp set!

    I love that you showcased the note box set using Floral Frenzy. We made them on the “cruise”…now, that is a trip down memory lane!

    Rebecca Attwood says:

    Lots of beautiful sets & inspiration from 2008! My first PTI order was in 2008 and included my 2008 favorite, Rustic Branches by Heather Nichols – such a great set with classic images & simple sentiments.

    Donna M. says:

    Bitty Baby Blessings. Without a doubt. I used it to make baby books for each one of my 4 g’kids, based on Nichole’s project. They turned out great, my dtr-in-law loved them, & the kids still look at them to this day!

  • 101
    Catherine Milne says:

    I accidentally posted this under the 2007 comments. Dang! Here it is again – in the correct place this time.

    My fave is Out On A Limb because it can be used for all the seasons and for a variety of occasions.

  • 102
    Helen F. says:

    Going back in time with you is a a wonderful trip. It’s amazing to see how PTI’s stamp designs are both vintage AND modern!
    My favorite stamps from 2008 are the three sets of “Out On A Limb” because they can be used to create cards for any occasion, season or holiday!

    Iris Shubert says:

    Hi PTI πŸ™‚ I don’t have these, but I looked thru all the 2008 sets and I love “Made of Snow” and “Mixed Messages”, I need to put that one on my wish list πŸ™‚

    sarah t. says:

    I’ve got Out on a limb, so I might have a go at a card using this one, but my favourites from 2008 are hands down the Birthday basics set, which I still use all the time, and the Holiday tags. Not a year goes by that I don’t use the Warm winter wishes image to package up hot chocolate.

  • 105
    Imke Ludwig says:

    I have the “Flower Garden Sentiments” from 2008 Stamp Sets and iΒ΄ve just used on of it 2 weeks ago. You see, itΒ΄s still present.

    My favorite stamp set from 2008 would have to be “Birthday Basics”. I am always looking for “innies” for my cards. Thanks for another chance to win! πŸ˜€

  • 107
    Keri says:

    If I had to choose a favorite stamp set from 2008 I guess I would choose Pond Life and Father Knows Best as a close second. Masculine cards are some of my least favorite cards to make, and both of these stamp sets do the job.

  • 108
    Janet Mack says:

    I have Polka Dot Basics and Love Songs from 2008. Love Songs I always use for Valentines and I use Polka Dots quite a bit.

    Joan K says:

    I am totally enjoying reading these “a look back at the past 10 years” posts. I have only been a PTI fan for about the past 5 years. I don’t have any of the sets mentioned, but like all of us have lots of flower sets. However, as I scroll thru the post I find myself saying – Oh, I don’t have any flower sets that I can do that, or that! So thanks for the inspiration and wish me happy shopping!

    My fave was the Polka Dot Basics, truly a staple for any stamper. You can never go wrong with dots for any card occasion.

  • 115

    2008’s Spooky Sweets II stamps & dies are my favorite Halloween Set! Anything Halloween is so fun! Love to pop the die-cut witch, cat, and spider atop the background.

  • 119
    Becky M says:

    I really like Bitty Baby Blessings, although I don’t own it and it’s still just on my wish list. Too many good stamp sets released every month to be able to go back into the older sets too much!!

  • 120
    Deb Hudson says:

    Polka Dot Basics and Honey Bees. But looking at todays posts I’m also loving Out on a Limb and Background Basics: Stars. Great idea to have these reviews. I like going back for a second look.

    Noreen says:

    I’m enjoying your peeks into the past. Bitty Baby Blessings is my favorite of the ones you’ve shown. All the stamps look as fresh now as when you introduced them in 2008.

  • 122

  • 125
    Cheryl B. says:

    Turns out I own PTI set form 2008……Flower garden. I’m sure I didn’t purchase it in 2008 though. I hadn’t started following PTiI until 2009 or 2010. I’m sure I wanted it because the petals and he stems could be stamped in different colors. Bitty Baby Blessing was never on my radar until now!

  • 126

    Out on a limb is my favorite set today. There are so many ways to use this set. And the inspiration cards are just amazing!

  • 127
    Lisa V. says:

    I love Out on a Limb. I love how you can mix and match the images for the limb and create cards for many occasions. Another favorite, which I don’t have, is the Flower Garden set. It is a classic floral set that can be used time and time again.

  • 128
    annheidel says:

    Oh man, that year is tough for me to pick just one. I love Boards & Beams, but I also love the Quilter’s Sampler series and the Snowfall sets. Polka Dot Basics is one I’ve used a lot! I have a weakness for polka dots. But I still have to say that I love the houses and little details in Boards & Beams the best!

  • 129
    Diane Oliver says:

    There are too many to count, but Out on a Limb is a FAV that use all year long, over and over as background. hugs

  • 130
    Diana K says:

    I still knew nothing about PTI in 2008, so I was completely “safe” each and every month! Looking at the offerings for that year, I would have to say that Boards & Beams is my favourite, but there are some others that really appeal to me also.

  • 131
    Adele Holcomb says:

    I didn’t discover PTI until later, so it’s fun to see past products. Out on a Limb caught my eye today.

  • 132

    Polka Dot Basics was by far my favorite stamp set! I used it all of the time and still pull it out from time to time today!

  • 133
    RedGem says:

    My favorite is Out on a Limb… I have used it several times and its always a great background stamp set.

  • 134
    Kim Badelt says:

    I think Out on a Limb would be my pick. I love how it can be turned to any season and with little additions of birds etc you can add lots of character. The style is timeless!

  • 135

    I love the Honey Bees set! Adorable and versatile.

    Love Out on a Limb, but I also loved Spooky Sweets 2 (the circle frame and chocolate sentiment), Heart Prints, Teachers Apple, Mixed Messages, and of course Polka Dot basics.

  • 139
    Mel H says:

    Mixed Messages is still a go to set for me.

  • 140
    Michelle Michael says:

    Out on A Limb is a set I bought way back when but hardly ever use. The ideas on your blog from the other designers motivates me to pull it out & use it again!

    You can’t go wrong with Bitty Baby Blessings. Timeless!

  • 147
    AllysonA says:

    My favorite stamp set from 2008 is definitely Heart Prints. I love all the pretty patterns on the hearts, and the sentiments are fantastic and pretty, too. I smile every time I use this set. Love it! Loving all the beautiful design team samples today. So much fun to go back and see these older products with fresh eyes.

  • 148
    Dianne S says:

    I liked Honeybees and Garden of Life from the 2008 release. Pond Life and Pond Life sentiments also came out that year. The belated birthday sentiment from that set has come in very handy over the years.

  • 149
    Jill says:

    I picked up “Out on a Limb” last spring when Hanne was thinning her stamps a bit. I have yet to play with it but the post today is quite inspiring. My favorite 2008 set is “First Fruits”. It is so chic!

  • 150
    Jan Pufall says:

    Baby Blessings and Out of n a Limb, still are well loved stamps!

  • 151
    Cindy G says:

    My favorite 2008 stamp set is First Fruits, which I purchased last month as part of the anniversary sale. Pineapples are a hot image in 2017, yet both the wheat and pineapple in First Fruits beat anything available today. Having said that, both the Guide Lines and Shape by Design sets intrigue me, with their geometric images and still unique designs.

    Sue LD says:

    My favorite is the Out on a Limb set–so versatile.

    I still use Bitty Baby Blessings all the time for baby cards – and I use Mazel Tov every year to make cards and gift tags for the Jewish doctors I work for, Boards and Beams is a wonderfu set as well as Pond Life!

    Martha says:

    A friend introduced me to PTI, when I was looking for a stamp set with Bible verses. The 2008 stamp set, “Everyday Blessings” is one of the first PTI stamp sets that I purchased, and it is still one of my favorites.

    see mary stamp says:

    Truly enjoying these trips down memory lane and seeing familiar names from some of the design team members back then. I think my first two purchases were 2008 release items – Quilters Sampler and related sets and Rustic Branches which started my love of all things Pinefeather. Polka Dot Basics, Bitty Baby Blessings and 2008 Holiday Tags are all favorites too!

    Tough choice but really love Out On A Limb. So many ways to use it.

  • 189
    Angela W says:

    My favorite set from 2008 is Everyday Blessings. I love the sentiments in this set. “Someone remembers. Someone cares. You’re name is whispered in someone’s prayers” is my favorite sentiment of all of my stamp sets. Feeling forgotten myself a lot of the time, this sentiment touches my heart. It’s perfect for someone who has lost a loved one on a card a couple months after the death to remind them that everyone hasn’t gone “back to normal” and forgotten them while they are still grieving.

  • 190
    Annette Snyder says:

    I would have to say polka dot basics and garden of life!

  • 191

  • 197
    Karen says:

    It’s hard to pick favorites, but the Out on a Limb is so versatile. I wanted to use that set for my project, but I’m making bookmarks for our librarians and so I chose Floral Frenzy just because the bookmarks are thin.

    I have 4 of the 5 sets showcased today, but probably my most used set from that year is Birthday Basics. It is so much fun to see these timeless projects from previous years (some of them I remember seeing when they were first shown), and then see a new card with the same set.

    Out On a Limb is one of those sets that “plays well with others”, one of my all time faves. I automatically pull it out with any floral or outdoor scene card just for a little extra something.

    For me, it’s a toss up between Floral Frenzy and Polka Dot Basics…

    I came on board with PTI in 2012 but I do have 4 sets from 2008. Wise Owl and Wise Owl Bellies, Out of the Box and Heart Prints. Of those 4 I use Heart Prints a ton! The hearts are a wonderful, full, heart shape and the patterns make it easy to use for multiple applications.

    Keeway’s Garden of Life card was the inspiration I needed to make some new cards with this older set. It now feels brand new all over again. This celebration of past, present, and future has fired up my creativity.

    Out on a Limb Sentimentd is the best stamp from 2008. It covers so many categories in one set. Of course the Out on a Limb is pretty yoo, but the sentiments is very versatile.

    Dennisonka says:

    Since I didn’t know about PTI between the years of 2007 to 2010, I discovered these favorites in the years after their release. And of course, there are many favorites, so I just can’t pick one. Instead, I’ve listed the ones that still make my heart happy: Everyday Blessings, Out on a Limb, and Out on a Limb Additions. Love Papertrey and the great products and inspiration you regularly put up!

    Barbara Martin says:

    My favorite 2008 stamp is the Bitty Baby Blessings stamp set. I love that it has little bitty matching stamps for the larger stamps. I like using the little ones on tags.
