Loving Papertrey Ink

I just love paper crafting, and along with that comes falling in love with certain products and certain companies.  One of my very favorites, way at the top of my "must have" list is Papertrey Ink.  They have gorgeous products.  If you've never seen them, you will most definitely want to check them out here: - Some of my most favorite of their products include their awesome metal die cuts.  They are very reasonably priced, too.  I'm also in love with their wool felt, vintage buttons, and so much more.  I would buy one of everything (if I could).

This card was completely inspired by one of their awesome Design Team Members, Ashley Cannon-Newell.  She did a tutorial on this card showing how to make the flowers from the PTI wool felt.  My card didn't turn out as cute as hers, but I still love it.  She gets the credit for creativity on this one, but it was just too cute for me not to attempt recreating this one.   It also uses their awesome  button card die cut and stamp set - another "must have".

I also made another project using a floral die cut set and more of their precious wool felt.  I placed it all on a glassine bag so that I could tuck a gift inside for someone.  The ideas are simply endless.  You can read all about the challenge here: - Favorite Things

I'm playing along in their new release give-aways in the hopes of winning ANYTHING from this amazing company.  I could almost cry just thinking of all the beautiful things I woud love to own from their collection.  I'm sure you will feel the same way once you stop and check out their products.  A special THANK YOU to Nicole Heady and the awesome PTI Design  Team for all their inspiration.

Thanks for taking a peek, and have fun visiting their beautiful website.
