Our Top Selling Products Over the Past 11 Years

[img] top products over the years

For the past 11 years, we’ve released some incredible, innovative products to help you create anything you could imagine. We started in 2007 as a one-stamp-a-month company and have grown into a multiple-stamps-per-month company with wonderful product designers from all over the country. We had a lot of fun recently looking back at all our top products from the past 11 years as we gear up for our big anniversary!

In our first year of business, we produced one stamp set every month. We were just finding our place in the world of cardmaking and we exceeded everyone’s (including our own) expectations with the Beautiful Blooms Stamp Set. It was the twelfth stamp set that Nicole Heady ever designed and it included everything you could ever want in a basic floral set. The stamp set was a classic design that had been a workhorse for many of our designers over the years. If you have this stamp set in your craft room, consider yourself lucky! The design was so popular that we released Beautiful Blooms II in 2010.

Many of us discovered the joy of cardmaking through birthday cards. We decided to make a unique card for someone special and the next thing we knew – we’re completely obsessed with cardmaking! The Birthday Basics Stamp Set released in 2008 was our biggest seller of the year. It is a classic stamp set with all the birthday sentiments you need to make a special card for your baby to your grandpa. A few of the sentiments can also be used for other occasions, like weddings and a new baby, making this stamp set versatile as well.

Aqua Mist Cardstock was our most popular cardstock for 2018. The light aqua color is perfect for everything from baby shower invites to wedding cards to birthday cards. Throughout the years, it continues to be one our favorite colors.

In 2009, Papertrey Ink released its new innovative line called Button Bits. It took us nearly three months to develop and we were ecstatic when we finally launched it in July 2009. Everyday Button Bits was the first of many sets that make up the Button Bits Collection. The special stamp set contains 11 images that can be completed with the addition of buttons or circle punches along with 17 complimentary sentiments. Just like us, you all went crazy for the new stamp set and made it the best seller for 2009 along with Aqua Mist Cardstock again.

The button craze continued into 2010 as you couldn’t get enough of the stamp set. In 2010, our new die sets started to take off with the launch of our new Limitless Layers Collection. This classic die collection is as versatile as it comes. You all loved our Limited Layers 1 ¾” Circle Die Collection, but we also have other shapes like hearts, ovals, and squares. New in 2009, we decided to start making sampler packs of all our cardstock colors allowing you to try new colors along with your favorites. It was a big hit and we’ve continued to make these Cardstock Samplers over the years.

Once again, Papertrey Ink developed an innovative new product that you loved as much as our product contributor, Melissa Philips. Melissa loves hanging and pinning little tags to all her projects so when she submitted her idea of a set of tag shapes and stamps, we knew it would be a big hit! The Tiny Tags Stamp Set and Tiny Tags Die Set were a huge success in 2011. Over the years, we created new tiny tag sets to meet all your design needs. Many of you tested your new tag designs using our 2009 Perfect Match Cardstock Sampler.

Our Happy Hexagons Mini Stamp Set topped the sales charts in 2012. This fun little collection of patterned hexagons is perfect for creating colorful backgrounds for any card. The stamp set allows you to mix and match and play with various color combinations for a dizzying array of designs. It pairs perfectly with the Cover Plate: Hexagon Die, which allows you to insert the little hexagons into the frame! For paper, our Kraft Cardstock (50) was our biggest seller.

Heather Nichols’ Wonderful Words collection is one of our favorites. In March 2013, we released the second stamp set in the series, Wonderful Words: Birthday Mini Stamp Set. The stamp set features the word “birthday” in a whimsical mixed upper and lowercase serif font. The companion sentiments are clean, bold and pair well with the stamped word or with the coordinating Wonderful Words: Birthday Die.


[img] bird buttons

In 2014, we launched our Wet Paint Stamp Set, which became an instant hit with you all. This stylish new stamp set captured the look of hand-painted sentiments that can be used for many occasions with the smaller companion sentiments. We have since released a holiday version, an alphabet version and more in this Wet Paint collection.

And since you couldn’t get enough of our buttons, our Button Stacks Die was the number one selling product in 2014. Once again, our Kraft Cardstock was the best-selling cardstock. You just couldn’t get enough of this versatile classic brown cardstock.

In early 2015, Betsy Veldman released an exciting new collection that made us fall head over heels. The Petite Places collection is a series of stamps and dies that allow you to create your own miniature village. And if it doesn’t get any better than that, all the tiny places fit inside clear tag domes and ornaments! The first series, Petite Places: Church is perfect for creating wedding and baptism keepsakes. Betsy continued to expand the collection to include everything from Barnyard to Holiday scenes.

Pairing perfectly with all our Petite Places products, the Pop Up Trees Die adds just the right pizazz to all your creations. Fresh Snow Linen Cardstock was our best-selling cardstock for 2015.

After a long winter of cold and snow, there is nothing more exciting than seeing the first tulips peek through the dirt letting you know that spring is on the way! Our Tulip Time Stamp Set designed by Betsy Veldman is the perfect set to create multi-step images and stunning backgrounds. We loved how some of you layered them over a watercolor background.

After the popularity of 2015’s Petite Places line, we introduced Tiny Town in 2016. This collection of little buildings also doubles as treat boxes! Our Tiny Town: Basics Die is the foundational die set that creates all the basic buildings in the collection. Once you have the Tiny Town: Basics Die, there are 5 additional building fronts and four other accessories to create different types of buildings.


Our Cutaway Tag collection is a great way to give all your cards a bit of three-dimensional design. You can accent the Cutaway Tags: Spring Die with the coordinating stamps and sentiments from the Cutaway Tags: Spring Stamp Set. With lots of flowers, leaves, and even a butterfly, this stamp and die set is perfect for all spring ideas. Once again, our classic brown Kraft Cardstock is your favorite paper.  Don’t forget to check out Cutaway Tags: Summer and Cutaway Tags: Winter.

Over the years, we’ve created some incredible products for all your cardmaking needs. Now it’s your turn. Tell what your favorite product is from the past 11 years!

    It’s really hard to pick a favorite, but I do love the Happy Hexagon stamp set and background die. I’ve used that a lot! The Polka Dot Basics set is another that I’ve worn out. It’s just so versatile! I recently bought the new balloon set and the Brushed Birds and think those will be fast favorites too.

    So hard to pick a favorite as I still use all my PTI sets. I use my Maille Belle sets most often & my Sketched Shapes set has been used for almost every occasion I can think of & for men, women & children. I seem to reach for it more than any other when I need some inspiration. So glad that PTI just keeps on growing!

    Tracy says:

    so hard to pick a favorite but probably my most used item from Papertrey is the Double-Ended Banner die. I have used that little die on countless cards and scrapbook pages and even my planner. Also I have to mention all 12 months of Monthly Moments kits (all the stamps, dies etc) – I have used all of them (and the other stamp sets and dies in that scrapbooking series) and I love them so very much!

    Dawn Y. says:

    What a wonderful walk down Memory Lane! It would be too hard to choose a favorite. So often, I reach for a Mix + Mat die, the Tag Sale:Quilted die, the Tiny Tags dies, and so many PTI sentiment dies. Choose Joy, Give Love, Twig Wreath, Sprig Wreath, and so many floral stamp sets are often close at hand on my craft table. The new Birthday Balloons is sure to become a new classic, too! My fondness for Papertrey Ink began with my first purchase, the Big Hugs stamps and dies, several years ago. What an exciting time to be a papercrafter! I can’t wait to see the wonderful inspiration and new releases in the year ahead! ?

    Tosha DelJanovan says:

    Wow… I can’t believe it’s been 11 years! The designer that REALLY inspired me to create with PTI products was Laura Bassein… boy she’s an amazing designer and funny as heck! One of the products that I still use daily is the PTI 110lb crisp white cardstock. There is no other like it. My all time favorite PTI set is the Sparkle and Sprinkle Kit! I have been hoarding the paper pad and use the stamp and dies ALL the time. You guys basically invented the shaker cards! LOVE IT!

  • 46
    Sharon D says:

    Well, my all-time favorite PTI product has to be your white card stock (and I was surprised that wasn’t ever listed as the best-selling card stock). I couldn’t begin to pick a favorite stamp set or die. I love so many of them! Bells and Boughs is a great set, for Christmas and for other occasions. If the flowers are stamped in red, they look like poinsettias, but in other colors, they look like flowers for other occasions. The bow is great. The bells are great for weddings and anniversaries. But I love so many of your florals sets! For dies, I love the Garden Gild cover plate and the Dahlia cover plate. I’ve had a great time making Tiny Town Halloween houses and schools with my great-nieces. I love the matchbox die from All through the House. As I said, I can’t begin to mention just one thing!

  • 47
    NM Sanchez says:

    The Swoosh Die set is my favorite.

  • 48
    Donna says:

    I am not a high quantity shopper, but I have five of the top sets. My most loved sets are Damask Designs and Betsy’s Color Pop Florals mini kit. I love my mini $5 sets too (most are by Melissa Bickford).

  • 49
    Cindy C says:

    I love the Make it Market sets….also the mini Make it Markets, that are easier on the budget!

  • 50
    Leigh Penner says:

    Just one favourite product? I guess it would have to be your cardstock as I use it on every card I make! My favourite stamp sets include: Winter Woods, Spring Woods, City Scene and Pedal Pusher. ?

  • 51
    Pat Ackley says:

    One of my favorite Papertrey products is the Holiday Folks Kit. That little bear just steals my heart, and the papers are just gorgeous. But like others have said I can’t make a card without stampers select white card stock. It’s the best!

  • 52
    Connie G says:

    This was very fun to read through. Funny, how many of these I have. I think the set that has seen the most use over the years is Birthday Basics. There is always a perfect sentiment there. I think my favorite set is Melissa’s Choose Joy. I just love the uplifting quotes in there Please please, have a Choose Joy 2 this year!!!

  • 53
    Kari D says:

    I have been a HUGE PTI follower almost since the beginning and asking me to pick my favorite PTI stamp (and now die) is like asking me to pick my favorite brother or sister! BUT I do have several sets that I have used over and over since I purchased them. Their timeless design and amazing, heartfelt sentiments make them a staple at my craft mess, er desk. With Sympathy has provided the perfect sentiment to send at a time when words just don’t seem to come easily. Bitty Baby Blessings (and thank you so much for the dies!) has graced more than one ‘welcome baby’ card! AND just like the uber amazing Michelle Phillips, Fancy Flourishes (oh yes!!!!! thanks so much for the dies) has been that perfect somethin’ somethin’ to stick in more than one background, flower arrangement, scene, holiday snowfall…..well you get it, I use it everywhere. THANKS so much for your amazing talent and for your blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Periscope feeds that continue to inspire!

    annheidel says:

    I have almost all of those bestsellers! I’ve been following PTI from the very beginning and I have a lot of favorites, but I will say that everything Betsy Veldman designs instantly captures my heart. I love her vintage style. Big Hugs stamp set is another personal favorite.

  • 55

    I’ve been a huge fan of papertreyink from 2012 when the shipping to south korea was not available. I like all stamps and dies from papertreyink, so it’s really hard to pick one favorite.
    But, from all of it, I LOVE “Inside&Out: birthday II” stamp set. It’s perfect sentiments to make birthday card in all occasions. And I also LOVE “Tag sale: quilted die”. It’s very useful for making cards as well as tags.

  • 56
    Stacy O'Dell says:

    WOW! If I had any of these stock sets they would surely be my favorites! I have many of the Sentiments sets ( Papertrey Mixed Messages I use alot) which I really love, and the stitched dies sets, which are another favorite. There’s so many more I can’t think of right now!!!!! And I have a LONG wish list!-Stacy

    Vicki Achzet says:

    I have been a PTI customer since 2010, I also started learning how to stamp and make cards then as well. I have a huge collection of PTI products. I now make cards for our grandkids, extended family and friends for birthdays and holidays. I love the Make it Market kits and mini kits. My favorite cards to make are shaker cards. Still have to practice with florals, they are also a favorite. Congratulations on your 11th Anniversary! Wishing you many, many amazing years ahead.

  • 63
    Lori B says:

    What a fun look at the top sellers from the past 11 years! My most used product is the Stamper’s Select white cardstock, love that paper. Way too difficult to pick a favorite stamp/die, but I do love the font & sentiments on Choose Joy.

  • 64
    Donna Gourley says:

    Impossible question to answer! Overall, I’d have to say that PTI’s cover plates and Mix and Mat dies are my favorite “go to” products. My favorite stamp sets change daily pretty much, so I would have to vote for a product that I reach for again and again.

  • 65

    I have loved all the Petite Places! My favorite the Bethlehem scene. I have made many ornaments using that set along with the Petite Ornament Square Die. Congratulations on your 11th Anniversary! Wishing you many, many amazing years ahead. I have also LOVED the Year of Psalms mini stamp sets! I have them all! ♥

  • 68
    Rachel W. says:

  • 75
    Jill S says:

    This stuff is like the kids…can’t pick a favorite! Dies, I would say the A2 series sees the most love. Stamps, I try to use as many as possible, but Doodlie-Do holds a special place in my heart.

  • 76
    Lynne S in GS says:

    The fillable frames series has definitely seen the most ink in my craft area. Whether the centerpiece for the sentiment, as a background or even as tags, they remain my favorite and are always at hand. The petite places series is a gift makers paradise, so versatile and functional that I’ve used them as 3D or flat or again as backgrounds on a bigger project. PTI is amazing!

  • 77
    Fran says:

    My favorite stamp set currently is the Initial Sentiments: Birthday. I just used it yesterday when teaching my Tuesday Card Class in a retirement community. I would LOVE to see another set similar with greetings such as kindness, hello, happy and another one with get well, sympathy, etc. My all time favorite stamp set though is the Friendship Jar and all the fillers. I love this stamp set so much and use it all the time still. That beautiful mason jar collection never goes out of style! Thanks for all of your beautiful stamp and die creations over the years and to come! They are all beautiful and timeless!

  • 86

    Barbara M says:

    I think I own just about every thing you have mentioned! Aqua Mist is my favorite color and seem to use all time! Order it every time never ever enough…I did reach for Beautiful Blooms all the time. Love that Birthday word as it is a classic. My favorite flower is the tulip and just posted a card in the challenge this anniversary Monday using LJ sketch…what can I say but I know I am a fan/ groupie what ever…But I gotten really good life out of my products and they still work today. Thanks!

    I’ve been a customer of PTI since 2011, and I can’t believe some of the featured (most popular) stamp sets are as old as they are! Such classic, timeless designs. Tiny Tags is still a favorite of mine. I reach for it often!

    Nancy M says:

    It would be impossible to pick a favorite, so I’ll just go with my most used set, Birthday Basics. That has seen a lot of ink over the years!

    Joyce M. says:

    I have many PTI favorites. How about Dot Spot, Harvest Berries and City Scene. But I could name many, many more.

  • 96

    Not sure I have a favourite … some of my most used are Doodlie Do, Dot Spot and Bitty Bouquets. Anita 🙂

    Sallie says:

    I’ve loved all the flower sets…especially the ones that are more realistic….same goes for the sets with birds. I like to watercolor and these sets lend themselves to that medium so well.

    Imke Ludwig says:

    I have many favorites but i totally love these who are perfect for CAS cards. I always need a quick and easy card and a lot of PTI Stamps are very helpful.

    Nancy Penir says:

    Oh my, pick a favorite? couldn’t possibly pick a favorite stamp or die. But your cardstock is definitely my favorite. I use it exclusively, and love how it matches both ink and copics!

    Just one favorite pick?! Not that easy. For me it’s the friendship jars and all the different fillers. I love these stamp sets so much and use it all the time still. So versatile!!!!

    Happy Mini Hexagons! I can’t believe they are already 6 year olds! I love them but actually haven’t used them in ages… I will endeavour to use them soon! My favourite? Tough call… maybe Larger than life but it’s like choosing between one’s children!

    Sandra Spielberger says:

    My favourite items are all the stitching dies. Unfortunately one of my orders got sent back from Germany to the US.I had ordered the quick stitch kit beaded holiday. When I reordered that set was sold out.I was soooo disappointed that I missed this beautiful set. I just wish papertrey ink would re-release some of their discontinued kits. I ordered the design a softie dies seperately after the kit was retired.But I would love to be able to buy the exclusive pocket die and mini stamp set. I also missed the chance to get the exclusive sewing staples stamp set.

    My favorite product might just be Tulip Time. The flowers are so lovely and easy to multi-stamp,even without a MISTI.

  • 107
    Julie says:

    Botanical Silhouettes and the Doodled Paisley birthday sets have been my favorite images, but the sets I have used the most the Keep It Simple words.

    Abigail Hernandez says:

    Congrats on 11 years and all those cards are simply stunning. My favorite set from the past releases would be the Tulip Time stamp set.

  • 109

    I have so many favorites it’s really difficult to pick just one! I love the Mix and Mat dies. There is so many versatile ways to use them. Great designs!

  • 110

    Tammy W says:

    I have loved everything PTI has made, they are all classics! Lately, the Mix and Mat dies are one of my favorites.

  • 112
    Suzi Fohringer says:

    I could not read all of the entries, but I cannot imagine being without your 110lb. cardstock. It is always in a deep pile by my work table. When I have a smaller order, I add a pack on so I won’t run out. I believe I have at least 2 unopened 50-pc packs of white. If frequency of use is what we judge our favorites by, I would have to say Inside-Out:Birthdays. Family and friends are always telling me, “you used this sentiment on my card 4 years ago!” I guess I really should keep a list of who- I- give- what. This trip down nostalgia lane has made me want to pull out Kraft card stock and combine with my favorites, Aqua Mist and Melon Berry. Thanks for all the inspiration over the last 11 years! Please don’t stop.

  • 113
    Debbie A. says:

    I don’t think that I can pick a favorite stamp set as I love them all! I do tend to use more floral stamps than anything else, and one of my all time favorites is Rosie Posie. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!

  • 114

    A couple of my favorites are “Damask Designs” and “The Sweet Life”. Oh, my, they are gorgeous and timeless!

  • 115
    Stephanie Clapper says:

    Happy Anniversary PTI! I love everything about you! The stamp set I’ve used the most is Spruce and Sprigs but I m a huge fan of your birds, flowers and tropical designs. I can’t make a card without reaching for your white cardstock, stencils & Mix and Match frames. See, I love it all!

  • 116
    Susie says:

    Happy Anniversary, PTI!!!
    There’s too many favorites, but the one I reach for time and time again are Wet Paint stamps and die, Hanging by a thread stamps and die (recently used to organize my embroidery threads!), and Birthdays by the Numbers – still love the number dies with it!

  • 117
    Donna K says:

    I was so excited when so many dies sets were introduced with matching stamp sets. I’m a sucker for all the flower dies. One of my all time favorites is the Rosie Posie stamp and die set.

    Theresa says:

    Such fabulous designs over the years and you just keep getting better and better with each passing year!! I’ve loved the cover plates since I first seen them… and then the shaker dies.. omgosh… I could go on about my favorite dies from PTI… I’m just happy to be apart of your wonderful stamps & dies! 🙂

    Cheryl says:

    I lots of favorites, but the one that I seem to use the most is inside out birthday sentiments as I send a lot of birthday cards. I also adore the set that makes the little girls barrettes. Ive been a HUGE PTI fan since the beginning. Thanks for THE BEST quality clear photopolymer stamps on the market!

    Sharon Jaeger says:

    Oh so many favourite PTI sets in my stash…but Pedal Pusher has to be the most unique and special one that I reach for when I really want to craft a card for someone special! I hope you release some “fillers” for this set in the future for even more ways to use it.

  • 127
    Olga V. says:

    Thank you for sharing what PTI bestsellers were through the years! My favourites are all Wet Paint stamps and dies, as well as Quilled Elegance stamp set, I use them over and over again.

  • 128
    Kerry in PA says:

    One of my early favorites was the Snowflake Serenade set. I also loved the button bits sets. I love flowers so all the sets from year of flowers were a must-have. There are so many others too but those are a few that come to mind immediately.

  • 129
    Kristie H says:

    There are just too many stamp sets to narrow it down to a favorite. I think my favorite product is Papertrey’s cardstock. I love that they have matching ink, love the colors, and the thickness.

  • 130
    Betty N says:

    I have most of the above! Really difficult to choose my favourite product. I think it is a toss up between the “Shakers and Sprinkles Make it Market Set” and “Painted Petals”- thank you for the chance to win!

  • 131
    Felicia says:

    Oh My… there so much to choose and say, but that Make It Market Kit of the Shakers and Shine… Give me Life! Shake…Shake…Shake… Shake a Tail Feather…(lol)

  • 132
    Lindsey L says:

    I own and love lots of these favorites. I remember being particularly excited about the Wet Paint series. I love the Don’t Forget to Write kit and several of Maile Belles’ sets (like Bigger Blooms), and I still reach for them. And I several favorite tag dies.

  • 133
    Luanne says:

    So fun to look at the history of this fabulous company!

  • 136
    Anna Natalia says:

    I love all the PTI sets that I have but I must say that I often use Stylish Sentiments sets (Birthday and Holiday). They are so versatile as I can use them in any cards.

  • 137
    Trapshooter says:

    I think the first stamp set I bought from PTI was Love Lives Here. If I’m remembering correctly. I can’t pick a favorite, I love them all!!!

  • 140

    Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful walk down memory lane. I love so many products over the last 11yrs, but some of my favorites are anything Fall, Christmas, the tulips, the Kraft and Aqua Cardstock and love the sample packs. And all the flowers and sentiments have been just wonderful. Keep up the great creations. The only get better year after year. Thank you for all the inspiration!

    karen h says:

    Favorite product? I love the quality photopolymer stamps, but I also use the cardstock on every card I make. The new mix and mat dies are so versatile. You know you can’t just ask us to pick 1, right?

  • 146
    Tammie Koehnen says:

    My favorite PTI product? That’s a hard one because I love so many PTI stamps sets…. the one product that I use ALL the time is the PTI Kraft Cardstock. I think I make most of my cards using it in one way or another. It’s different and better than all the kraft Cardstock out there! I just love everything that PTI makes. Thanks for making the best quality products for us.

  • 147
    MV says:

    What a fun post!
    My favorite PTI products are the tag dies.

  • 148
    Marchelle says:

    One of my favorite products of all time (impossible to pick one) is the Cover Plate: Pretty Frames Die. If I could I would include it on every card.

  • 149
    jengd says:

    I love the Petite Places sets. I didn’t get them all but definitely the majority of them. The ornaments and jar toppers I’ve made with them are always received with rave reviews. I’ve made two for our school librarian- a Sweet Shoppe and a school with tiny notebook papers swirling around in the shaker. I guess I should be honored- someone liked the school enough to steal it from her. That’s good… kinda. lol!

  • 150
    Chris says:

    Petite Places started me out with stamping as a hobby, and it’s still my favorite. I’ve purchased many of the older sets in the past couple of years, and many are becoming favorites for card making, but Bloomers has a special place in my heart. I saw it on Nichole’s blog when it first came out, but until I became hooked in stamping, I could only admire it!

  • 151
    Anna S. says:

    My favourites have been Two Feet Deep, Fair Isle Motifs, Canned, Life is Beautiful, and Betsy’s Don’t Forget to Write kit. Absolutely my go-to kit for cards of all kinds.
    Looking forward to seeing what his year brings from this talented team!

  • 152

    I found this blog really interesting. It would be fun to make this an annual feature, with more detail on the year just completed. List the top 5-10 selling stamps, dies, cardstock, printed papers, most viewed blog post etc.

  • 154
    Beverly Perdue says:

    My favorite product is one that I still use today — the Inside/Out Birthday sentiments. I have many favorites and I own some of the ones you mentioned in this post.

  • 155
    JanetB says:

    It was fun to see all the past favorites, I have quite a few of them and use them all the time. I love the Petite Places Series, and the one I use the most is the Happy Camper, stamps and dies, it is perfect for where I live.

  • 156
    Josiane says:

    So cool to see the top selling products for the past 11 years. I have each one except only the Spring stamp set from the Cutaway Tag Collection – so far… 😉

    Happy 11th Anniversary!

    Claudia B says:

    It’s fascinating to see what has been popular over the years. Some of the winners are obvious (Petite Places), and some, I would never have guessed.

  • 158

    SUPER HARD to pick a FAVORITE, but it’d have to be the Make It Market Kits and the Mini Kits!! =)

  • 159
    Sue D says:

    Great review of the years. My fave is any of the stitching dies. Love to make items with the felt.

    HeatherD says:

    Twenty million favorites…top is always anything Christmas…and of course the Petite Places and Make It Market kits, and the Quilted, and Dawn’s florals…and Heather’s characters…and Melissa’s collaborations…and and and 🙂

    Congratulations on another fabulous year. As everyone has said it’s so difficult to pick a favorite of PTI stamps. I really like the quality of the clear cling stamps the way they line up perfectly especially on the multi-step stamps such as some of the flowers.
    Some of my favs are my CD case “Inside & Outside Birthday”, “Big Birthday Wishes”, and “Birthday Basics”. Also the floral sets by Dawn, the Beautiful Berries: Spring & Winter and the Tulips are some I use quite often.
    Keep up the great work and inspiration
