Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2012

2012

 

Today we are diving into the year 2012!

 The editors of the venerable Encyclopedia Britannica — the massive, leather-bound tomes seen in libraries and schools since 1768 — announced that they were discontinuing the printed edition. The blog post goes on to promise that "the encyclopedia would live on" in "bigger, more numerous, and more vibrant digital forms," but the end of the 244-year old institution was yet another harbinger of the death of print.

No song has defined 2012 more than Psy's inescapable "Gangnam Style," which set the records for the most watched YouTube video. "Gangnam Style" has become a worldwide phenomenon, earning more than 1 billion views (and counting), spawning thousands of tribute videos, and giving the South Korean singer the opportunity to do his crazy horse-riding dance with many different celebrities around the world.

The 2012 Summer Olympics, which took place from July 27 to Aug. 12, were a widely celebrated, headline-dominating affair. More than 10,000 athletes from 204 countries hopped a flight to London, England to participate in more than 300 events. In the end, the United States won more gold medals and more medals overall than any other nation, with China and Great Britain taking second and third.

Hello Sunshine – This set is so much more than meets the eye!  The triangular elements were designed to work perfectly together to make a perfect "sunburst" background.  There is a starburst circle that can be used as a guide for positioning, which makes this set so easy to use.  With the coordinating dies, you can die-cut and layer the solid circular center portion of the sun, or not, depending on the look you are going for.  The coordinating dies allow you to cut wedges from colored cardstocks or patterned papers which you can choose to stamp with one of these coordinating design elements.  Perfectly phrased sentiments round out the set, allowing your projects to be cohesive with the sunshine theme.

With All My Heart – A fun collection of all things love, designed to coordinate with the new Limitless Layers: 2 1/4" Heart Die Collection. There are lots and lots of layering options with these creative and fun images. You can easily add flowers and leaves to the polka dotted heart, and incorporate the blank banner into the design for adding sentiments. What's not to love about a chevron striped heart that also has a small banner opening for additions? And the large "Love You" heart has loads of color combo options with the letters that can be added individually.

10th Anniversary - Sending Hugs Card

Lizzie says, "One of my favorite things about Papertrey Ink stamps has always been how adaptable they are. For example, at first glance With All My Heart may seem like it's only suited to a specific holiday, but a few simple substitutions make it absolutely perfect for year-round creating. It's that versatility that makes me fall in love with these stamp sets over and over again."

2012embroideredblooms

Embroidered Blooms – Hundreds of tiny, intricate "stitches" make up each component of the embroidered flowers and leaves in this elegant set. There are even "French knots" for the flower centers. As you build blooms and leaves with the layers created for each image in a variety of colors, the images will literally come to life and jump from the page. And the best part is they coordinate with the previously released dies, Beautiful Blooms II Die Collections #2 and #3 as well as Turning a New Leaf.

I do have tons of favorites from this year though – Heart-2-Heart Mini is just so adorable with that little coffee cup. (love all my heart-2-heart minis). Love Trendy Tree Tops. Hello Sunshine is one I need to get out and USE because it’s awesome! and We go together…I could name so many more that I have and want.

    I’m not sure how I found PTI, possibly Pinterest, but it was in the fall of 2012. That is when my 30 years of stamping with woodblock stamps, changed for ever. Now with going through all the years, month by month, I can see all that I’ve missed, amazing and wonderful! I don’t own any of the sets that were shown today, (but I will) I love my Autumn and Winter Hills, On the Farm, Lovely Layers, and Beautiful Butterflies.

    I didn’t know about Papertrey Ink in 2012, but I have since bought Sweet Life and Lovely Layers within the last year. Both sets make such lovely sympathy cards.

    Nancy Penir says:

    Love that we get entertainment along with inspiration! You’re so much fun! Thank you for giving a smile to start the day. Embroidered Blooms has been a favorite since it’s release. Seeing Melissa’s new project sent me right to that set to create my new card!

    AngelaP says:

    Love the Embroidered Blooms set! What lovely cards that set makes!!! But With all my Heart is STILL on my wish list! Why haven’t I bought it yet?

  • 102
    Peggy S says:

    2012 was another great year for PTI. On the Farm is one of my favorite stamp sets ever. Plus Simply Jane and Signature Greetings II.

  • 103
    Rebecca Attwood says:

    Having a look through the options I’d have to pick Simply Jane as my favorite 2012 release – I love Jane Austen & having some of her quotes (and co-ordinating images) to use on cards has been so great – this set gets lots of use when making special cards for my sisters-in-law, who are fellow Jane fans!

  • 104
    Lindsey L says:

    Embroidered Flowers is still so lovely, but my favorite from 2012 was the hill series, especially Winter Hills.

  • 105
    S. Molinari says:

  • 107
    Mutzy Mia says:

    When I look back at all the releases from 2012 there were a few that I remember as special…Flipping Out, both the Autumn Hills and Winter Hills and Over Under Easy. But there is one set that I have used a lot from 2012 and that is the Heart-2-Heart #10 mini stamp set. The sentiments and font are perfect for sympathy cards and the butterflies are always a nice accent. I do own a couple of the sets highlighted today and it was fun to see again…both past and present…their usage.

    My favorite stamp set in 2012 is the Think Big Favorites #19 Mini Stamp Set. It is so sweet and simple. I put it on my wish list back then, but ended up removing it when the list got too long. I’m putting it back on my list now!!

    Angela W says:

    2012 produced a lot of my favorite stamps. I can’t possibly pick just one. I love On the Farm because it reminds me of farms in the midwest where I live. I love Flipping Out because when I lived in Arizona, I lived in Flip Flops and loved every minute with them! Strawberry Patch and Strawberry Patch Sentiments reminds me of eating strawberries with my Grandma when I was a little girl. I also love Stitched Sentiments from my cross-stitching days. I like the Heart-2-Heart series because of the cute little designs for each month. There are lots of 2012 sets that are great for Christmas cards, too, like Peaceful Pinecones, Beautiful Blessings: Holiday, Framed Out #8 andThink Big #20.

    The Framed Out dies are my favorite from 2012. They were so innovative at the times, yet still continue to add incredible interest to my cards today. The Heart-2-Heart series was pretty sweet, too.

    For 2012 Embroidered Blooms is my favorite. This set looks so elegant stamped with white ink on kraft card stock. You can use it as a background, or as an accent, say in a corner.

    I do own most of the 2012 sets – except my favorite Sentiment Signs! Always wanted it, but it always got pushed out of my cart by beautiful flower sets. This time it is staying in the cart until I push that “order” button!!
