PTI Jan Blog Hop


Papertrey Ink's January Blog Hop is all about showing a little attention to stamp sets or products that haven't been used much lately or ever in some cases. 

I've been on a card making/crafting binge lately so this was a good challenge for me.  I've used a ton of PTI stamps in my creations but there were a few sets that had been languishing.  Here are my creations using those sets.  :)


The Just the Ticket stamp set & die were one of the first few sets I bought from PTI.  I just loved the idea of the tickets and the possibilities for embellishing them.  I haven't even scratched the surface of the ideas I had when I saw it, let alone the ideas I got from the PTI DT.  And with new sets showing up regularly this one got pushed to the back a little bit.  I'm happy to have moved it front & center with this card.  Simple but sweet and super easy to mass produce if needed!

 I was so tickled by these!  I'd cut down some 5x7 card bases for a class a few months ago.  Since I'm a little bit of a pack rat I kept them.  And they turned into these cute little things!

And the others are 3x3 cards I created with inspiration from the latest Scrapbooks Etc magazine.  Love the idea of little cards that are fast and easy to make and really easy to hide in a pocket, wallet, lunch or numerous other places.

  7. So Pretty! Really like the card with the tickets across it and the heart behind the main sentiment. And all those little decorated 'tags' to add to future cards/projects are wonderful.
