Today we’re introducing you to a couple of really exciting new features we’ll be sharing with you in the coming year.
We all have cards that don’t necessarily turn out the way we had envisioned or a project that we designed to be feminine that could be made masculine with a few tweaks. Some of you may remember the Recipe Remix Challenge from SAF 2013. It’s sort of like that (but with our own projects instead of customer submitted projects). The idea is to show a project transformed into something fresh and new.
Keep an eye out on our blog on Tuesdays (when we don’t have other features happening) for this transformation inspiration.
Who doesn’t love a simple, classic sugar cookie? But then you icing and it gets even sweeter and more decadent. And then you pop on some sprinkles and suddenly it’s a party! The idea of this feature will be to show how a single stamp set can be used to create a card from clean and simple to downright fabulous with a few extra layers and embellishments. You are going to three progressive examples – starting simple and moving up from there – from each designer participating in the feature that day.
Watch our blog the last Wednesday of each month for this spectacular new feature.
We definitely will be continuing our favorite features here at Papertrey Ink: Throwback Thursdays, Design Team Tips, and Make it Monday. There is so much inspiration for you to enjoy every week!
We are pleased to announce our annual “Year of Free Stamps” Contest. As tradition holds, one lucky winner will receive monthly shipments after every release containing all of the newly released stamp sets for the remainder of 2018 as well as January of 2019!
