Welcome to the official day 1 of the Papertrey Ink 4th Anniversary countdown! Working with Papertrey Ink is certainly a match made in heaven for me and I am honored to be a part of it! It's been 4 wonderful, fun, and creative years! It is a joy to share with all of you projects and products that I truly love. It has been wonderful meeting all of you here on my blog, in the Papertrey forums, and also in person at various events that include CHA.

I definitely am excited to look forward with Papertrey Ink and everything that is to come! Even just this month there are so many exciting things in store!

We have a few changes with the design team: we say farewell and best wishes to Niki Estes and hello and welcome to Danielle Flanders. Today the whole Papertrey Ink design team is sharing a favorite Papertrey project from this past year - you can download all of the supply lists and project instructions over at Nichole's blog - and don't forget to enter to win the "ultimate" card kit while you are over there too!


This card and tag ensemble is definitely a favorite project from last year. It was one of those stamping moments where everything just fell in place and the woodgrain with the snowflakes layered on top turned out so perfect! This project also uses one of my favorite stamp sets from the Pinefeather Press line: Peace, Be Still.


This is one of those examples to create your own custom background - and the layout is really very simple, but just right to not take away from the background images. The whole Fillable Frames series is just right for a card layout like this. I used Fillable Frames #8 for this project.


If you frequent my blog, you know I love tags! These tags have new homes after being tied to bows on Christmas packages. And how about those felt snowflakes cut from Vintage Cream felt and topped off with a Scarlet Jewel button? The Peace, Be Still die collection is one that was designed to coordinate with the stamp set, but also works beautifully on its own too.


Make sure to head over to Nichole's blog to link up to the whole design team, download the supply/instruction list, and enter to win the "ultimate" card kit!

Come back soon - there is lots of celebrating to do!
