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! Imagine never having to worry about choosing what stamps to cut out of your cart because of budget constraints.  You will get every stamp set, every release February 2018 through January 2019.

To enter this contest, you will just need to enter your information into the entry form below.

A winner will be formally announced on Release Party Live that broadcasts at 8PM ET on our Papertrey Ink Facebook page. Only one entry per person is permitted.  Entries must be received before 7am ET, February 15th, 2018 in order to qualify.

How to Enter:

1. Fill out the entry form below.

2. ONLY ONE ENTRY PER PERSON PLEASE!

3. You have until 7am ET, Thursday, February 15th to participate.  Don’t forget to enter!  You can’t win if you don’t enter!

8. The winner will be announced on Release Party Live that broadcasts at 8PM ET on our Papertrey Ink Facebook page and afterwards will be posted on our February Winners Page.

Best of luck to everyone on this contest!  So, go ahead and dish!  How do you think you would react?  Who would be the first person you would call if you saw your name as the big winner of this prize package?  What would you do with all the money you would save on stamps?  It’s definitely fun to dream about!

    I’m really looking forward to the new features coming up. PTI always has something fun in store for us.

    I always look forward to the anniversary contests. Seeing your name drawn must be like winning the lottery! I have several crafty friends I would call to celebrate with me (and I’m sure they would want to play with my prizes too). As for the money I’d save, I’m sure I could take a nice vacation instead of feeding my addiction to PTI products.

    June K says:

    The two new features sound great. Would love to see the DT members’ cards they feel didn’t come out as they wanted and what they did to “fix” it. And Simple to Spectacular sounds like a lot of fun. Often times I wonder what I should add to my CAS card.

    Donna Phelan says:

    Wow! Thanks for the chance to win! After screaming the news with joy to my hubby, I would call my fantabulous SIL Corinna!

    Transformation Tuesday and Simple to Spectacular features both sound wonderful. It’s the design aspect of cards I find most challenging so seeing how the design team approaches these will be so helpful.

    Sounds like we’re in for lots of fun on The Blog this year. I love the idea of the two new features! I can’t even imagine getting so many stamps every month – I would definitely have to share.

  • 11

    Sounds like there are a lot of exciting changes coming up this year. Can’t wait to see what is in store. Winning a years worth of stamps would be wonderful! This would enable me to buy all the items on my gigantic wishlist.

    Vicki Achzet says:

    I would be thrilled to win all of the stamps for a year! I would buy all of the matching dies with some of the money I saved. I would also be able to get all of the Make it Market kits too! What a treat that would be!
    Looking forward to seeing the new features introduced for the blog this coming year. Thank you to the Design Team for all of their inspiration and ideas throughout the year.

  • 14

    Sounds like so much fun! I love the idea of two new features! I would definitely tell my husband first and then my crafty friends. I would be able to save SO much money to buy the necessities of card making that I don’t regularly purchase-glue, foam tape, papers, sequins, etc…

  • 15
    Marcia Hill says:

    Sounds like some FUN new features coming up and I will look forward to seeing them! And who’s the first person I’d call after learning I won a year of FREE stamps? Once my fingers started working again I’d call my cousin Sue who is just as big a PTI fan as I am!! :0)

    The two new features are sure to inspire and help us rethink what I call my “dud bunny ” cards. Looking forward to them both.

  • 21
    Angie says:

    Great new features with very memorable names! Love them! It would be “crazy” to win all the new releases! First of all I’d have to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming and then I’d be in heaven every time a pkg arrived! Unbelievable giveaway!

  • 22
    Katy Milne says:

    Love this Transformation Tuesday idea! Always nice to try to improve on my mistakes, flops, meh cards.

  • 23
    Joyce says:

    Sounds so fun! I love improving on past projects. Masculine is something that is super hard for me, so they never turn out great. Maybe a second go is just what they need!
    Thanks yet again for the best ever contest! It’s always an amazing week but this is incredible!

  • 24
    Sharri Niehus Reeves says:

    This is a great challenge. Wish I had time to participate. Maybe next time. Can’t wait to see everyone’s projects.

  • 25
    Jill Norwood says:

    These new features sound wonderful and fun! And what a joy it would be to win the stamps for a year! It really is like winning the lottery for Crafters! 🙂

  • 26
    Julia Aston says:

    Fun ideas for 2018! I’ll have to start saving the cards I don’t like instead of trashing them – so I can transform them for a Tuesday challenge!

  • 27
    kelly says:

    Your two new features sound amazing! I am really looking forward to them both! And, because I am going to be the winner of the ‘win your wishlist’ contest, I am going to let all the others try for this one 😉

  • 28
    Natasha says:

    This new feature sounds super fun!! Looking forward to the design team letting us see their process as they transform a previous project!

  • 29
    Jeanne Boardman says:

    Wow! All the new things coming our way, can’t wait! And, the possibility of free new stamps, hard to imagine! I would definitely be on the phone to my BFF Amy, might even have to share some through out the year if I am so lucky to win.

  • 30
    Melissa S. says:

    All the stamps free would be amazing! I would tell my family first, probably preceded by a shriek of shock and joy. Then I would tell my other crafty friends. I am not sure what I would do with all those stamps since I have so many already that do not get enough love and use. So many stamps and ideas but too little crafting time.

  • 31
    Danijela says:

    Wow, these new challenges are amazing! PTI is my home for inspiration, and the products are fondest to go to when stamping. So seeing them in use more, yeah yeah yeah :):):)

  • 32
    Cindy H. says:

    Ooooh, a year of free PTI stamps, what an amazing prize!!! First I’d tell my husband and then call my crafty friends. It would be like Christmas every month. But of course I would be buying all those lovely dies that PTI offers every month with the money that I saved. Well a girl can dream.

  • 33
    Terri Trotter Earley says:

    It’s exciting to hear about more features in the blog. I would tell my girls first then call my cousin Katie if I won!

  • 34
    lainey says:

    Looking forward to the new features because it’ll motivate me to craft! It would take me a while to call anyone if I won the YOS because I’d be in shock!

  • 35
    kkilian says:

    I enjoy the stamps and dies to express my creativity.

  • 36
    christal mclean says:

    Can’t wait for the new changes, especially Transformation Tuesday! Yesterday, I was making a card and dropped the ink pad on front and was trying to think of a way to “fix” it without discarding the whole thing. I don’t know about others, but it sometimes takes me hours to complete one card and to have to trash it, just makes me unbelievably sad. I’m sure there are others like me and know this series will be most beneficial!

  • 37
    Lynda Marquez says:

    Wow, this new year sounds like a fun one! Can’t wait to see all of the PTI goodness coming our way…the chance to win all for a year is a tremendous gift! Thank you!

  • 38
    Jess S says:

    This sounds like an excellent new feature. I love seeing multi-layered cards but when I make my own I have trouble adding lots of layers for fear of overdoing things and usually just do clean and simple cards. So I’m looking forward to upping my game with the design team’s tips. 😀

  • 39
    Laurie Buss says:

    Sounds like great new features coming up! I can’t wait to see them and get inspired! Thank you!

  • 40
    Val P says:

    If I won a year of stamps free, first someone would have to pick me up off the floor then I would call my stamping friend Betty. Looks like a lot of fun coming our way with PTI.

  • 41
    Susan Stewart says:

    I love a another reason to visit the blog. And the “simple to spectacular” post will be really helpful to me. I’ve got the “simple” down, but I need lots of help with the “spectacular”. Thanks for adding more inspiration and help to my cardmaking week.

  • 44
    Joybells says:

    I love the new features. It will step up my creativity.

  • 45
    Annette says:

    What an amazing challenge. I have so many of those cards. As I am not really a great card maker, but I just love the process so much, I have to keep creating. So I have more than a few cards that I haven’t thrown out, but feel embarrassed to give out as well. Hopefully I have the time to play around with this challenge. And I can’t imagine receive a full year of stamps free!! Wow! that would more than double all of my card making supplies!! Incredible! What an incredible generous gift!

  • 46
    Dawn Y. says:

    Oh, the new features sound just wonderful! Can’t wait to grow more with the lovely community of papercrafters who love Papertrey Ink!

    One lucky winner will be so very fortunate! First I would call my mom in Arizona. My parents love and save all of the cards I make for them. It’s another little way of staying close across the miles! My husband would be thrilled, too! (Just last night, as I was making my Wishlist, he asked if he could buy stock in Papertrey Ink.?) I would be so very grateful to win a year of stamps and would donate my crafty budget to the Alzheimer’s Association EVERY month! This wonderful organization is helping so many families (like mine) while they support the important research necessary to find an end to this heartbreaking disease. ?

  • 47
    Penny P says:

    It will be so nice to see stamp sets used in different ways!

  • 48
    Jeni Benson says:

    I love the sound of the new features. I have more cards than I would like to admit that make it into the “only use if desperate” pile as I can’t seem to throw them away.

  • 49
    Cathy Y says:

    I love your ideas for Transformation Tuesday and Simple to Spectacular Wednesday! Can’t wait to see what all your fabulous designers wow us with!!!

  • 50
    Jane says:

    I love all your new ideas! If I won a year of stamps I would be so excited and happy! I would also be so surprised as I never win anything.

  • 51
    SherryG says:

    I would love to win a year of stamps. Every month would have it’s own Christmas, and I would try many new things. Thank you for offering this amazing gift.

  • 52
    Becky Green says:

    If I were to win this prize package, I would be jumping up & down & giggling, & be UNBEARABLE for my family! LOL Totally unable to settle down! Someone else would have to cook dinner that night! In light of my celebrating! 😉 With all the money I would “save,” I would buy MORE PTI! ALL of the stamps & dies I am behind on buying! I would tell my hubby first! He gets excited for me when I win things. He is my TOP SUPPORTER in ALL THINGS! 😉 <3 Then our kids & then my best girlfriend! ALL of them benefit from my card making!

  • 53
    Leslie Scholes says:

    I love the two new features! I’m getting better about not immediately tossing out a mistake. I can hold on to it & maybe cut it up or die cut it up to use on another card. Thank you PTI for the chance to win a WHOLE year of stamps. I would call my best friend Kim who introduced me to stamping. And the money I’d save would be spent on dies, paper etc…

  • 54
    Karen Ba says:

    I love all of your inspiration! Thank you for an awesome design team and lots of fun products to make beautiful projects. I love PTI!

  • 55
    Kathy Mc says:

    Both of these new features sound fabulous. I could use lots of help with them. If I was the lucky winner, my DH would hear me squeal and then I’d call my Sis. Money saved would still go to PTI for coordinating dies, more ink colors, cover plates, kits and card stock. Thanks for the chance at another very, VERY generous prize!

  • 56
    Dana Kirby says:

    How fun would it be to win all the stamps for a Year? I can’t imagine how excited I would be!! Loving the new features, so fun!!

  • 57
    Julie says:

    Fun!fun! fun! on the new features – both sound really cool!!! If I won the year of stamps, I’m not sure how much money I’d save – I’d HAVE to buy all of the matching dies!!!

    One of the reasons I buy from PTI is because off the great ideas and tips I get from the various blogs of your wonderful team. Love the inspiration!

  • 64
    Jan says:

    I’d be thrilled to win and would probably spend the money “saved” by buying some of your older stamps that I haven’t yet purchased! I love your ideas for the two new features…

  • 65
    Sue in Grapevine says:

    I would scream it to my husband, call my friend Marieda (who got me into the magic of stamping), & just generally have a fit!
    I would use the money for dies, some of the big kits that don’t usually fit my budget, & to indulge myself in some more fountain pens.

  • 66
    Corinna says:

    Oh my word, I am loving all the new inspiration we’ll be getting this coming year! When the PTI blog is posting and inspiring, I make more projects! Can’t wait to see all of your creativity!

    I never win anything, so if I won, I’d have to do a double take to be sure it was really my name and then I would call my daughter! Ne t, I’d tell my husband because he always encourages me to keep going with the craft that I love so much!

    I loved seeing the intros for the design and product teams. So much talent to share with us. I’m loving all the new ideas coming out the past few days. I just can’t wait to see all the inspiration that will be available for us. And right, who doesn’t have a card that didn’t turn out the way we planned? or a card that’s just a little dull and I think “what would Melissa do”? No one can make a card super special like she does.

  • 83
    Nancy M says:

    Those are two great additions to the blog. I’m especially looking forward to the Simple to Spectacular posts with the designers using only one stamp set. Now that’s a challenge.

    A very HUGE thank you for the chance to win PTI ‘Stamps For A Year’! Yikes, I can’t even image all that amazing crafty goodness. There are a couple of BFFs that I would definitely share with…and…I wouldn’t have to call anyone, you’d hear me screaming at the top of my lungs if I saw my name as a winner :-O

  • 95
    Collette says:

    I would be speechless for the first time ever if I won a year of stamps. Lol. Would have to take a day off every month to play with goodies. I think last time I won something was well over 20 years ago. Maybe PTI is my good luck charm.

  • 98
    Lee Cockrum says:

    This would be SO fabulous to win!!! I’d probably spend the money on more paper and ink, felt and beads for the different sewing dies, fabric for regular sewing, and yarn for knitting!! So many hobbies, so little money (and time!!)

  • 105
    LC Lamothe says:

    What a most exciting giveaway! I think it would take a few days for the magnitude of a win like this to sink in. My Mom would definitely be the first person I share the awesome news with. She is a huge supporter of my cardmaking and would be as excited for me as she would be for herself had she been chosen as winner. Thanks for the chance!

  • 106
    merryf says:

    As I don’t yet own any papertreyinkproducts because I don’t buy on line I would be ecstatic as I look at each new release and dream of owning some one day. The first person I would call would be my daughter in law as she also loves looking at your products. My first reaction would be stunned silence then a loud scream of joy. With all the money I save I would use to buy new craft supplies to share with my daughters in law and my grandchildren I think. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a FANTASTIC prize and your continued inspirational blog.

    Debbie A. says:

    Happy 11th Anniversary, PTI! I’m so glad to read that you’re continuing with all the inspiration features and challenges we all love, as well as adding two more! That’s awesome! I cannot imagine winning every stamp set released for a year. But if I did, I’m sure there would be a lot of screaming, and celebrating! I would be spending my money on coordinating dies, ink, felt and definitely paper. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Teddra says:

    Love the new inspiration days! The first person I would tell would be my Mom, she isn’t a papercrafter but she’s a quilter so she gets the excitement of new product for a hobby that brings you joy.

  • 120
    Janelle says:

    Oh I am loving this new feature you’re adding to the lineup. More inspiration by the DT is always a bonus❤️ The idea of winning stamps for a year, seems so unreal but it’s exciting to think of not having to pick and choose stamps I want each month.

  • 121
    Linda M says:

    Love all the new features. Papertrey Ink is my favorite stamp company. Looking forward to all the new products this year.

  • 123
    Karen says:

    Simple to extravagant (extrodinary) sounds like a really great idea……we can “finish” our own card at any point.
    As for your give away…..THANK YOU…….that would be amazing! The money I AM currently saving, and would save from YOUR give away……is going towards a service dog. So, no more purchases for me (from you or any other company). But I still like to look at your inspirations and see if I can some how replicate it with what I already have…..that has always been my personal challenge, as I am on a (very) limited (disability) budget.

  • 124
    MaryB says:

    The Simple to Spectacular blog series should be amazing. Everything revealed so far in the festivities shows that a lot of thought, consideration, and planning has been done by PTI to make sure the next year is, well, spectacular! Thanks for all the fun, inspiration, and for the chance to win great prizes.

  • 125

    Oooo . . . these new features sound awesome!! And so practical, really. As for what would happen if I won the year of stamps. I think there would be a lot of happy dancing and screeching! I would definitely tell my three girls first (I homeschool them, so they would be here) and then I would probably call my husband.

  • 126
    Aunt Min says:

    If I won the year of stamps, I would scream and call my husband. He would probably say, “Cool. What’s for supper?” He could bring home a lot of take out meals with the $$ saved from stamp buying!

    Terry W says:

    If I won the free stamps I would use my ‘saved’ money for more PTI stamps and dies. LOL!

  • 134
    Sharon D. says:

    This would be the greatest prize ever, except maybe winning my wishlist!!! After I got done screaming & jumping up & down I would call my husband (he would probably celebrate, too!). With the money saved I would buy dies to go with the stamps & also products to help with organizing it all now that I have a room I can turn into a crafting room.

  • 135

  • 149
    Patt H. says:

    Transformation Tuesday is such a great idea! I have made cards I’m just not happy with & didn’t want to send & this idea is making me look at them in a whole new way. I love PTI & the amazing designers. I would definitely love to be the Year of Stamps winner! What a fantastic prize!!

    The transformation challenge was definitely a challenge. Lol Not sure I like my new card better than the old one, but it was an interesting experiment. Thanks for always inspiring us to try new things! And if I won either prize I’d tell my husband first. He’s my biggest fan!

  • 163
    dennisonka says:

    I always love PTI’s posts, and I am excited that there will be more during the month! Yay! I am really looking forward to seeing how the design team transforms “failures” into successes. That Stamp-a-faire feature was one of my favorites, but I think what will be even more encouraging is seeing that even PTI designers struggle with always coming up with a perfect product. Yay! We humble crafters are in good company. Thanks, Papertrey.

    Fun challenge. Love the sound of the new features. Winning my wish list would be so awesome. With the high international shipping costs and recent customs costs, I need to sit on my hands for a good while…
    If I should win, I’d scream, alerting both my husband and our pets, should they be in the house. Next, I would call my sister in the Netherlands that she will have more wonderful supllies to play with when she comes to visit in May!

  • 192
    Sheri Elmont says:

    Winning stamps for a year would be so absolutely crazy! I would take my “saved” money and buy the dies, and all the other fun stuff on my list! I would call my friend, Veda, and several others and announce it on Facebook!

  • 193
    Connie G says:

    This yearly stamp contest is the absolute best in the industry. I think I would freak out if I ever won this. Each month brings so many awesome products and I have to choose carefully to stretch my crafting budget. If I won I wouldn’t have to!

    So excited for the new features!!! They sound like so much fun! If I win I will be dancing my booty off all over the house and squealing while doing so! My dog, Pepper, will probably be going crazy as well since she tends to feed off of my energy—HA! I would tell my husband first and then all of my crafty friends, and I’d plan to share my prizes with them by having them over for some crafty gatherings!!! Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing prize package!!!
