Today we are diving into the year 2014!

It wasn't a human who made the giant step for mankind this year but a spacecraft that achieved the previously impossible task of landing on a moving comet with the help of the European Space Agency.

Host Ellen Degeneres' impromptu selfie at the Oscars with stars Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep and Kevin Spacey set a record for Twitter retweets.

The prospect of a 747 plane filled with passengers disappearing from the sky seemed like a fictitious plotline from a television show until March 8 when a Malaysian Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur destined for Beijing vanished. No crash site, debris or sign of any of the 239 missing people on board have ever been found and the search continues to this day.

Life is Beautiful - These bold butterflies will soon become some of your favorite images to work with. The main butterflies have detailed openings allowing them to be used alone. For extra pizazz you can add a second layer of color with the coordinating accent stamp. Since the butterflies are so bold, you can use them for all sorts of wonderful techniques! Build your own customized sentiments with the various elements included as well!

Betsy says, "In my mind, the Life is Beautiful set was an instant classic.  I always love butterfly images, and the big, beautiful ones in this set are definitely some of my favorites.  I've used this set SO many times since it was released, and was thrilled to get the chance to pull it out again for today's project!"

Embellished Elegance is a gorgeous set that can be exactly what you make it, simple or even ornate; it's all about how many pieces you decide to mix together. The large "happy" can be kept simple by die-cutting it and cutting off the leafed tails. You may choose to embellish it with lots of different combinations of flowers and blooms. The other main vine elements can be used in a variety of ways as well. You can add one as an accent just above a sentiment, or build a full frame above and below your chosen phrase. The vines that are broken into two pieces can also be used as decorative corners. So many options with this amazing set!

Lexi says, " With eight Pieces of Confetti sets released in 2014, it was really hard to choose a single favorite, but Give Me a Hand is definitely up there. I continue to reach for it often to create a variety of cards! Another major stand out this year would have to be participating in Stamp-a-faire and creating the 1980s mini kit. So for today’s card, I decided to partner a couple of fun elements from that kit with Give Me a Hand for a fun teen card. Come check it out!"

  • 101
    Sharon D. says:

    My favorite today is definitely the feather finery! It has been on my wishlist and after seeing all these beautiful examples I just might get it with my next purchase. It is so detailed, so lovely and you can give it so many different looks by using many different techniques!

    Cyndie says:

    So many great sets were introduced in 2014! I do own Life is Beautiful and love it, but my favorite from that year is O Tannenbaum. I did all 40 of my Christmas cards with it this year, as well as most of my tags (about another 40) and they came out great! I did dots of foil adhesive on top of one of the trees then pressed multicolor foil on them, and each dot looked like a different color glass ball.

  • 111
    Donna Gourley says:

    Even though I have several of today’s sets, I think Life is beautiful is the one that has stood the test of time best for me. Love ‘Em all though.

    There were a lot of great stamp sets in 2014, but Songbirds has a special place in my heart!

    So many favorites from 2014, but the one I reach for the most is Life is Beautiful. I just love those butterflies & the sentiments.

    Only one favorite???? Sorry … I just can’t pick one. So, I will pick a bunch. It is a toss up between the Life Is Beautiful, Songbirds, A Cheerful Heart, and Big Hugs. And this doesn’t include Betsy’s kits (the inaugural year … love and own all the kits from this year). Love Papertrey and the great products and inspiration you regularly put up!

    Another fabulous release year! Feather Finery is my favourite for this year. I love the lacy and dreamy feel of the feathers and the beautiful sentiments.

    Feather Finery is such a beautiful set. All the elements make for a lovely image. The Past projects bring back great inspiration ideas from that release. Man, I really need to look at some of my older sets.

    So hard to pick a favorite in 2014. I would say my most used are Life is Beautiful and Textbox birthday.

    2014 was a great year for the Keep It Simple series, I own several stamp sets that came out in 2014. I also like the Life Is Beautiful dies a lot, but don’t own the stamp set.

    Because of sending so much birthday cards, I have enjoyed Dawn’s Birthday Classics series. It is great to be able to go to those sets for seasons, months or holidays words, too. That series is eclipsed by Heather’s Monthly Moments. Seeing those sets and what the DT did with them was my favorite part of 2014 papercrafting. For both of those series, September was my favorite month.

    Leave it be is a favorite from 2014. My daughter lives in Colorado and I love the aspen leaf in the set. Bowl of Sunshine would be my number 2. Botanical Blocks, Polka Dot Basics III and many more round out this year.

    Oh Sweet Cheeks was such a cute set. The Amazing was also a favorite of 2014.

    I love the Text Block Birthday. This set can be used a shaker card, or simply cut it out of white card stock and but bright backgrounds behind it. It is a good one to use when you need to make a quick birthday card.

    I have Feather Finery and enjoy using it for projects other than cards. One such project was stamping it repeatedly on a mat for a framed photo.

    I own all four stamp sets and the Text block die featured today. My other favorite stamp sets are Wet paint, Garden Grace, and Pack Your Bags, but my absolute favorite 2014 stamp set is Get Lost since we love to travel.

    Happy 10th Anniversary! I have really enjoyed the posts revisiting each year PTI has been in business.
