This Thursday, June 28th, you will have an opportunity to purchase exclusive products created especially for our Buy It Live event. These beautiful products will only be available during this event in very limited quantities, so make sure to tune in right at 10 PM ET for your chance to purchase these new HOT items.  Viewers will be provided special access to make their purchase, along with an inspiration look book to view projects made using the limited edition sets. 

Caution: This is a fast-paced event and products may sell out very quickly.


Buy It Live will take place Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 10:00 PM ET – 10:30 PM ET on Papertrey Ink’s YouTube channel. During the livestream, we will showcase the products in detail.
