Happy Birthday Papertrey & A Fab Haul!

February marks the 8th year of existence for Papertrey Ink, one of my favorite stamp companies! There was 10 days of excitement and challenges leading up to their new releases for February 2015 and of course I played along... and bought some awesome goodies from the new release!

there were 10 challenges in all, some to make projects, and others were fun games... name that stamp set, find the little birdies ~ just a blast!

And then it was time... 10pm Eastern, 8pm for me here in the West... to fill up my shopping cart and claim the sets I wanted most and that's just what I did!

The first set I chose is call Swoosh and I fell in love just seeing one piece in the sneak previews! Now that I have it in my hot little hands, I love it even more! I'm a sentiment set nut and this lovely cursive font was right up my ally! The set has matching dies that you can purchase separately... no way I was missing out on those!

Next, with Easter getting closer and closer, I opted for the Etched Eggs set. The samples using this set were just amazing! The details in the stamps and dies were enough to make my mouth water so of course, into the cart they went!

The last larger set I purchased is called Bitty Bouquets and I got it for one reason... I cannot arrange flowers to save my life! Not in a vase, not in a flower bed and definitely not on cards! So this little set with bouquets all ready for me to put together with matching pieces was just perfect and not to be passed up!

Besides... it went really well with a one of the mini sets I got as well...

The Mother's Day Mini set to be exact but it's not such a mini set when you consider there are 8 stamps to it! They all say Happy Mother's Day but all are in different fonts... lots to choose from when you have multiple cards to make for the special ladies in your life!

I also collected another sentiment set from the Think Big Favorites collection. Sometimes you need a sentiment with some power and bulk for the front of your cards and this collection will give you just that for just $5.00 a pop ~ Love it!

Lastly, I rounded my order out with a Grab Bag... this is something they do over at PTI every now again when there's a plethora of this and that hanging around. The bags were $25 each and promised $50+ in products. Now I'm a sucker for Grab Bags... it's like Christmas and I love the surprise! This one was a really awesome surprise though... I won't go through all of the items that were in it but you can have a look at my haul below! Just click the photos to make them bigger for a better view!

  1. Thank you for actually showing the dies and stamps! I love Papertrey products, but their website is lacking....especially photos of the products. I ordered the egg die and stamp sets, so it's great to see what they actually look like. I'll be checking back. Thanks again.......Angie
