Welcome to A Passion for Papertrey! We’re thrilled that Nichole Heady has given us her backing for this new venture and so excited to be able to now share our All-Papertrey blog with you!

We’ve outlined what A Passion for Papertrey is all about on the sidebar to the right. Steph and I met on another stamping forum and thanks to our love of (addiction to?!) Papertrey became friends. Subsequently we decided there should be somewhere where stampers from the UK and the rest of Europe could share their PTI projects, stop by for inspiration and take part in challenges and swaps.

While swaps and challenge prizes will be limited to within Europe we of course in no way want to exclude our overseas PTI stamping brothers and sisters, so if you are from out of Europe please still feel free to visit us! We hope to provide inspiration for stamping with Papertrey products to everyone and indeed will be featuring ‘Papertrey stampers’ from around the world!

So… what better way to kick off our new blog than with the first of our fortnightly challenges and a GREAT prize!!

Check these out:

Floral Frenzy stamp set

Quick Kitcontaining Cardstock, Ink and ribbon in 4 Papertrey colours

We’re going to give both of these away to the winner of our first challenge – to create a standard size A6 card using Papertrey products. You could use your favourite Papertrey stamps (with other companies card/papers if you don’t have all the Papertrey colours) or even just their papers and ribbon.

When you’ve uploaded your creation to your blog or online gallery leave us a link in the comments section below. We are planning on utilising the My Linky application on future challenges, in the meantime we will manually add your link to this post from your comments.

You have until 9am on Monday, March 9th to enter when we’ll randomly draw a winner, prizes will be shipped within Europe only. Good luck and have fun!

We’ve both created a card using the Floral Frenzy stamp set that is up for grabs:


Stamps – Floral Frenzy
Card – Stamper’s Select White/True Black/Raspberry Fizz/Summer Sunrise
Ink – Raspberry Fizz/Summer Sunrise/Aqua Mist/True Black
Ribbon – Raspberry Fizz Swiss Dot/ Summer Sunrise Swiss Dot

Other – blue button, black floss


Stamps – Floral Frenzy/Borders and Corners (square)
Card – Very Vanilla/Dark Chocolate/Aqua Mist
Paper – Chocolate Remix
Ribbon – Aqua Mist Satin

And here’s a link to the Floral Frenzy countdown (where Nichole introduces the sets before they are released) and to the PTI Floral Frenzy gallery showing some samples by the Design Team.

Thanks so much for visiting, we’ll be back very soon with some more Papertrey projects to share!
