the winner and a BIG give-away over at Papertrey!

more stamp designs for 2009!


Being a stamp designer for Papertrey Ink has truly been a dream come true for me and what a whirlwind this past year has been. I want to thank all of you for your enthusiastic support with this endeavor. I also want to thank Nichole, Julie & Jane, and the whole Papertrey team. I couldn't have done it without all of you! One of my favorite things is seeing the excitement during the release countdowns and then what all of you are creating with my stamps once you have them in your hands.

I hope that you are all ready for more from me...I have more sets to come in 2009 and I hope you are going to love them as much as I do!

All of the sets that I designed in the past year have a special place in my heart. I design the stamps I want to have for my own use and if I want them, well, I know that you might too. I have to give my set Warm Happiness a little recognition, it was the best selling set from the Pinefeather Press collection this past year! I hope to have an addition to this set sometime in the future, so watch for that!


The Pinefeather Press collection for the past year included these sets: Rustic Branches, Rustic Snowflakes, Snowfall, Snowfall Addtions, Warm Happiness, and Around & About Sentiments. All of these sets are available to purchase right now at Papertrey Ink.

There are 3 new stamp designers joining the Papertrey Ink family this year. I would like to warmly welcome Beth Silaika, Dawn McVey, and Tiffany Pastor. I am so excited to see what all of them have in store for us this year! Learn more about all of the designers today at Nichole's blog.

And now for the give-away! One lucky person will win a Warm Happiness set! Leave a comment between now and midnight EST (February 4th) and a name will be randomly drawn to win the set. You will be able to see the winners here and on my blog after 12PM EST February 4th.

All of the Papertrey Ink designers are giving away a set of their choosing today so make sure you stop by all of their blogs: Lisa, Melissa, AlliCandice, Beth, Dawn, and Tiffany.

Check back tomorrow to see if you are a winner!
