Welcome to Papertrey Ink’s Release Day!

By November 15, 2017General

 It is hard to believe, but release night is already here! We've shared some incredible products and projects with you over the last five days and now its time for the big shopping day!

Kit-logo

We are pleased to announce that we are introducing an all new kit from Rebecca Luminarias today!

"It has been so hard keeping all of these details 'under wraps' for the last few weeks–and, of course, I was itching to use everything in the kits while I was patiently waiting to receive all the supplies.  It's the time of year when I can spend hours in the store drooling over wrapping papers, bows, ribbons, tape, and gift bags–but it gets a bit overwhelming, too.  On top of wrapping supplies, you still have to buy all the gifts, too!  So after you've spent hours battling crowds to get the 'It' present of the current year, you still have go from store to store looking for all the gift wrap, crossing your fingers that it hasn't all been picked over and all that's left are a few bags of smushed paper bows and a packet of stick on labels that is probably left over from 8 years ago.  And when you get your smushy bows and outdated labels home, well, you STILL have to wrap everything and try really hard to make it look like you made an effort.

That's not happening to you this year!  We here at Papertrey Ink have you covered with a kit that saves you from going to multiple stores, and saves you from wondering what tags go with which ribbons, and saves you from being a giant stress ball of wrapping paper!  You get a total of 56 tags with the option of adding on the Paper & Package Essential Tag Dies for just $7 to make them easy to trim from the Tag Sheets, and also allows you to create many more of your own tags from the rest of the coordinating patterned paper, plain card or tag stock, stamps, and dies." 

You can scroll down to see all of the details of the kit or CLICK HERE. Then you can look forward to the more projects and highlights from the team throughout the holiday season! Purchase your very own kit TONIGHT at 10pm ET. This kit is definitely a showstopper and you won't want to miss out on it!

    I am most looking forward to a white Christmas… we moved to the east coast and about a year and a half ago. We all thought we’d have a crazy white Christmas last year, but there was hardly any snow in our area. The kids were so disappointed. I’d love to have a White Christmas… it adds a bit of magic to the day. 🙂

    see mary stamp says:

    We’re heading up to the Wisconsin Dells for a few days before Christmas with the kids and 4 grandkids (ages 5, 3, 2 and 6 months.) This has become a family tradition and the older boys talk about when we’re going back to the Dells almost as soon as we get home. It’s nice to be away and have some quality family time and all of the last minute holiday stuff still gets done even with spending some time away. Wonderful release this month.

Gals who worked together at the Scrapbook store, neighbors, former neighbors, my monthly arts and crafts group, my book club, my travel buddies, my social work mates, his office, the Xmas tag and cookie exchange, and best of all, my own family! I always use my PTI supplies for tags, cards, thank yous, wine tags, gifties at the holidays!

  • 58
    Michele W says:

    I’m just looking forward to spending time with family. I don’t live close to my parents or any of my 7 siblings and their families so I seldom get to see them except around the holidays when everyone makes an effort to get home. Dad is 97 and Mom is 89 so holidays seem to get more precious every year.

    kellyv says:

    I can’t specifically say one thing that I look forward to. We do not have special plans this year, just a wonderful family Christmas at home which is really my favourite way to spend the holiday! I love it all, my people, the music, the worship services, food, my tree, all of it!

  • 61

    I am looking forward to being together with my family, other than my sailor who won’t be able to come home for the Holidays. Looking forward to crafting too!!!

  • 62

    What an awesome new release! What I’m looking forward to the most this holiday season is a trip we have planned to spend Christmas and New Year’s at Disney. It has me super excited!

  • 63
    Donna Gourley says:

    I’d have to say that every year my answer to this question is probably the same…it’s time off. I work at a university so we get a little more time off over the Christmas holiday than most and I’m extremely grateful for that time. I’m a bit of an oddity and love to catch up on chores and get things done around the house over the break…usually things like indoor painting (usually at least one room each December), reorganizing my stamp room, deep cleaning the house, and fun stuff too that I don’t usually have time for. Stamping will definitely be on the list.

  • 64
    Sharri Niehus Reeves says:

    What I am looking forward to is time spent with family and friends celebrating this wonderful season of joy, peace and love. Remembering and honoring Christ, our Lord and Savior.

    StephClapper says:

    When the last child left home, I divided up our tree ornaments so they would have a few childhood memories, on their own Christmas trees. I then purchased all new ornaments in beautiful tropical colors and design. My husband and I LOVE our new decorations and I look forward to putting up our tree, every year. The cross is front and center.

    I am looking forward to seeing my family. We don’t get to see each other very often, so this Christmas will be special/

  • 72
    Mary W says:

    Corny but true – when the whole family is here and the laughter and nuttiness that settles in – is my happy place. The mess? The conflicts? The cost? The endless dishes and laundry? Nothing compared to all that laughter and fun. It’s that old fashioned big family Christmas that ‘Clark’ was wishing for and we even have his movie on 8 or 9 times during the week.

  • 73
    Cindy O says:

    Time with family – beautiful music and scriptures for the season – and setting up our small tree – simple things that mean so much every year.

  • 75
    Theresia says:

    What I am looking forward to, We will do a open air concert for about 2000 people as the Christms storie is being told. And on Christmas eve we are invited to sing during a youth service. I am a teacher of a kids/ teens choir of 80 beautiful young people and I feel blessed and thankful that Our heavenly Father brought this in my life.

    We’re hoping to do an early Christmas with our parents if they come to visit in mid-Dec. to see our son as a lead in a local theater production. That would give us the chance to stay home and enjoy a quiet Christmas of just the 3 of us, something we’ve only done once in 10yrs.

    I am looking forward to leave for my Country, Puerto Rico, and see my mom who is 98 years old and had to leave her with my sister In law on account of the devastation that left hurricane María. I am currently living in Miami with my daughter but feeling so homesick for my Country,my people ,my food and my everyday routine, specially STAMPING and making cards! It’s been more than a month without crafting and my hands are itching and trembling, I guess these are the side effects of my addiction!

    I always look forward to getting the house ready for Christmas. Most importantly going out and getting a tree with the family, and decorating it. I love opening the boxes of ornaments and thinking about the origin of each one. Once that is done, I get the feeling I am ready for the main event.

    Always look forward to family arrival. A large and happy family and all the joy it brings. This year our plans include days of fun in the snow. Also looking forward to decorating a new tree.

  • 96
    Shelly Sweigart says:

    I think what I am looking forward the most is just spending some quality time with family. Not worrying about heading to work,sports and school. Normally my kids always make some crafty gift to give to close friends and family. My son is 14 and told old to do anything this year I guess. But…my daughter is 10 and I’m going to cherish my Christmas crafting time with her in case she decides she is too old soon too! Thanks for a great release and the opportunity to win!

    I’m looking forward to making Christmas special for my husband and me…a time to quietly relax (get phone calls!) and enjoy the special season…and maybe some snow! My father is 97, my mother-in-law is 95 and our sons’ jobs have taken them (& their families) many miles away. So Christmas will be quiet…but still full of joy.

We turned them on long enough to take a couple of pictures, and will then turn them on after Thanksgiving. It looks wonderful! Can’t wait to put up decorations inside now.

    Ann L Merry says:

    I am looking forward to giving each of my daughters their annual photo book. I always work one year behind, so this year is 2016 (that way I can include Christmas photos and have it be a complete book). The books are 90 pages full of photos that I have taken as well as photos they uploaded to Dropbox. People don’t take time to print photos these days, so the girls and their families really treasure these books. I have 4 done and 1 more to get done. It is a lot of work, but it is just the most perfect gift.

    Being with family is my goal. It’s so important. As we get older, you never know when someone won’t be there the following year. We will cook a lot and everyone can bring their “specialty” dish. We will laugh and watch a whole lot of Christmas movies, including classic Christmas cartoons.

I love sitting in the living room with the glow from the Christmas Tree just talking to them. They’ve grown into such beautiful women. I’m so proud of them. It matters not what is under the tree, but what is in the hearts of those around it. Thank you for a beautiful release this month, as always. Something I always look forward to.

    So what I am looking forward to is going up the the central coast to a little town called Cambria where they have a huge light display. We meet friends who come down from San Francisco, as it is about half way between LA and SF. There are lots of families and a small Christmas Market and live music. We’ve been doing it for several years now and I always look forward to it.

    We are actually going to have family from out of town come to visit us for Christmas. Super excited! We are normally on our own. It will be SO fun to show them some of our traditions and for them to attend the Christmas Eve services at our church. The service is filled with traditional hymns, organ, brass, strings, woodwinds, handbells, and choir along with the contemporary praise band. Just a little bit of everything. (And just to add…I play the flute and am in the handbell choir. Makes for a busy evening. I get to show off a little.) 🙂

    Today there is such a wonderful assortment for the November release. My hope for this Christmas season is to find all my loved ones happy and healthy. I am planning to spend Christmas Eve with my son and his family and to join in on the surprise when the children open their gifts. Having a four year old that believes in Santa is extra special since it only will last a few more years. More friends and relatives will join us later for a Christmas feast and that will round out the day. Happy Thanksgiving!

Our kids are not close by, my sister is thousands of miles away, his brother and wife are in town, but are generally working. So we figure, what the heck, why not. 🙂
