Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2013


Today we are diving into the year 2013!


Prince George is born to William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. During the hour after the birth was announced, 12% of all content read or watched around the world was related to the prince’ birth.



The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” was created by Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis, but the joke’s on us, because the EDM track went on to become one of the year’s biggest online — and chart — smashes.

If you choose to watch the video and the song gets stuck in your head for the rest of the day, we sincerely apologize!  Ha!


This year, the entire city of San Francisco became a hero when it helped 5-year-old Miles Scott, who has battled leukemia since he was 18 months -old, become Batkid for the day.



Ruby Rose is a gorgeous new floral set with both a touch of whimsy and a bit of Victorian charm! Inspired by vintage wallpaper, these flowers can be mixed and matched to create gorgeous focal points, backgrounds and so much more. Pair the flowers with these stylish sentiments and you’ve got a match made in Heaven!

Pedal Pusher is an amazing new bicycle set that offers endless possibilities and customization! The bicycle can be stamped in two ways. You can 2-step stamp with the bicycle wheels as a set, followed by the top portion of the bicycle. Or, with the coordinating dies, you can stamp each wheel individually on separate die-cuts and attach them behind the top portion with brads to create wheels that spin. The basket can be filled with a variety of different items included in this set, and you can also have fun experimenting with other images from previously released sets. With all of the options here, you can create a card for just about any occasion!

    My favorite stamp set from 2013 would have to be Pedal Pushers – I love the bike, I love the sentiments and font, and I love the versatility!

    I use the apple prints set all the time to make thank you cards for my preschool students. It looks wonderful on craft cards.

    Jill says:

    I don’t own any of these sets; none of them really jumped out as stamps I have seen used really either, with the exception of Pedal Pushers. Enjoyed getting reintroduced to them. My favorites of 2013 would include Stylish Sentiments Birthday and the Hills series.

    Karen says:

    I only own one of the stamps sets showcased today—Pedal Pushers—and it was a recent purchase. I love hopping over to the store and looking through the releases for each year. By far, my most used stamp of 2013 is Stylish Sentiments: Birthday. I reach for it over and over again for the inside sentiment in a card.

    Isabel Z says:

    It’s fun to go back and see what stamps were released that year. The minute I saw Pedal Pusher I knew that I had to have it because I love bikes. The funny thing is that I am not a bike rider but for some reason I love the image of a bicycle. All these years later, I still love this set because I can make the wheels spin and I love tucking little items into the basket. It’s too cute!!!!

    Hands of Time is one of my all time favorites and one of the first Papertrey sets I ever bought when I found you in 2015. It is “Timeless” and elegant and so lovely. It can be dressed up or down and like medallions, I’ve always had a thing for clocks.

  • 40
    Natasha says:

    I don’t have any of today’s featured sets- it appears I must have been saving up in 2013, as I don’t seem to have many sets from this year! Pedal Pusher has always been on my wishlist, so maybe I’ll finally order that one!

    Although one of my all time favorite, most used sentiments is from 2013- Stylish Sentiments- Birthday.

    I also quite enjoy Sketched Shapes and City Scene.

My most-used set was also created in 2012 – Stylish Sentiments: Birthday.

    Okay, this is really getting to be unfair! There is NO WAY to pick a favorite set for this year. There’s just way too many choices. But here is a favorite but not an exclusive favorite – Mini Blooms and Bigger Blooms (counts as one set, right?). Meadow Greens is right up there too.

    Malina G says:

    Hands of time is a favorite, followed by the Mighty oak. There’s something ageless and romantic in both sets. A lot of projects were inspired by those beauties.

  • 107

    Love the Ruby Rose set. It has such a fantastic retro look. And I absolutely adore the sentiments in it. I am enjoying this whole series so much! It is fun to see all the fantastic sets and also the fabulous inspiration!

  • 118
    Dianne S says:

    Ruby Rose is my favorite and I have used the heart die to The Best is Yet To Be in many cards. I also loved the Mighty Oak stamp and die set – the tree die is perfect for A2 cards and the many patterns on the leaf stamps are versatile. Also loved Mum’s the Word stamp set.

  • 119
    Kari D says:

    2013 was a VERY good year for me and PTI purchases. Your July 2013 release had me all in awe. Your “Meadow Greens” stamp set was a must have for me then….and I still reach for it often today. THANKS for this great look back. So glad I stumbled on PTI and the amazing artists who are and have been your DT! You have made me a better card maker as a result!

  • 120

    Oh wow, I had four out of five here, my favorite is the pedal pushers!

  • 121
    AngelaP says:

    Every time I see a card made with pedal pushers it makes me smile! I think that is a great set!

    So hard to pick favorites. Have always loved Ruby Rose and it is a floral set I reach for often.

  • 124

    My favourite from 2013 (and this was hard!) Is Cutting Garden. The ranunculus are so pretty and I love how each component is individual so you can build your bouquets a la carte depending on the occasion and the amount of time you have.

  • 125
    Beverly Perdue says:

    I have a lot of stamp sets and dies from 2013. That was a very good year for my Papertrey purchases. My favorite set would be the Ruby Rose. I love the layered vintage flowers and the sentiments are perfect.

  • 130

    My favorite set from this year was Mini Blooms! I love that set!

  • 131
    Mutzy Mia says:

    I own three of the sets showcased today. In looking back through 2013 I would also add Spring Hills, Meadow Greens and the Wonderful Words series. I think my favorite today was looking again at Hands of Time, I particularly liked Wanda’s cards. I think I had just bought the dies and not the stamp set so will need to check and add it to my list if I don’t own it!

  • 132
    Holly Saveur says:

    My favorite stamp set for 2013..Mini Blooms and Bigger Blooms!

  • 137
    Christine N. from VA says:

    Great memories of the great stamp sets! Go papertrey!

  • 138
    Adele Holcomb says:

    Although 2012 was the year I discovered PTI when I saw the Hanging By a Thread set on a blog and just had to have it, 2013 must have been the year I realized how much I liked your products and started building a collection — I see I have some 6 sets from that year. I do have Ruby Rose, as well as the Ruby Reprise that was a bonus set that year. I liked the inset flowers that allowed me to use different colors, and I especially liked the two squared off sentiments perfect for the corner. I still use this set often.

  • 139
    Sandy Rizzo says:

    I love the Hands of Time stamp set because of the beautiful detailed clock faces.

    Keri says:

    Meadow Greens is a favorite of mine from 2013. Well, because…flowers. 😉

  • 146
    Kelly G. says:

    Of the sets featured, I like the cards made with Ruby Rose best, especially the CAS card by Cristina Kowalczyk and the black and white one by Nichole (I can’t believe I’m saying that, since I think there are more than enough flower stamp sets out there!) I also like the sweet border from The Best Is Yet To Be. It seems different from what stamp companies are doing right now; I’d like to have fewer steps in making a card, not more, as is the trend. The sentiments are also nice, but I have seen them in many different places and wouldn’t buy the set just for the border.

  • 147
    Kim Badelt says:

    I couldn’t resist Hands of Time in 2013 and I still think its pretty special!

  • 148

    Lori B says:

    I think my favorite from 2013 would be Rustic Wreath. But after today’s inspiration I remember why I need to buy Hands of Time-everything shared today is fabulous. Wanda, both of your projects just knocked it out of the ballpark!

  • 152
    Sandy C. says:

    I have Pedal Pusher and I love that stamp and die set! It is so detailed but it comes together easily. I love the sentiments in the set too!

  • 153
    Helen F. says:

    My favorite release from 2013 was the Watercolor Wonder stamp set. I use it often to add a pop of color to a card or for a nice simple one layer card. All the look of a work of art without as much mess as actually painting the design – I love it!

Mini blooms, pedal pushers, red white & blue, vegetable garden, it’s the season, two feet deep, rustic wreath, … and so on. The winner would have to be Red, White, & Blue.

    Once again, I’ve got 3 of the 5 showcased today. Of those, my favorite is Hands of Time. There have been some absolutely stunning projects made with it! Even with Hands of Time being my favorite, I’ve probably used Ruby Rose more. Thanks again for showing so many past projects – it reminds us once again about how versatile and gorgeous these sets are.

    I love HANDS OF TIME and PEDAL PUSHERS but was only able acquire HANDS OF TIME. Both are so versatile and there are very few bicycle stamps available out there, especially any with so many possibilities.

    My fav 2013 set is Round Repeats, because you can do so much with it! And no matter what you do, the results are beautiful. It looks like you spent hours on your card design, when you didn’t.

    My favorite stamp set for this year was Pedal Pusher. I think everyone I know got a card with a bike on it. The sentiments are versatile and there are sentiments from other sets that can be used to broaden the versatility of this set.

    Ok, ok, I admit it….I am a sucker for the tag stamps. The 2013 Holiday Tags won my heart right away.

    I have used Mighty Oak over and over for spring and fall cards. Love it and the matching die!

    Some of my favorite sets this year were the Polka Dot Parade series by Melissa Bickford. (I still miss her simple clean style…) Melissa’s Polka Dot designs were adorable, fun and oh so easy to create using these sets.

    Nancy M says:

    Mini blooms and Bigger Blooms share the top spot for 2013. It is not so much for the flowers – although those are fun – but, rather, for the sentiments. I love both the words and fonts that Maile used in those two sets and reach for them often.

    Only one favorite???? Sorry … I just can’t pick one. So, I will pick a bunch. It is a toss up between the Watercolor Wonder, Mini Blooms, Scrolling Script, and Mum’s the Word. Love Papertrey and the great products and inspiration you regularly put up!

    OMG there were so many great sets in 2013! But I decided that Nuts for You was my fav! I adore that squirrel (I even named him Nutty) and used him on a bunch of fall cards and for party favors. He is great to paper piece or color. He’s just the cutest!
