Papertrey Favorites Scavenger Hunt

Hello and welcome everyone! What a pleasure it is to have you all visit me today! I have got a huge secret to share with you!! If you have come here from Nichole Heady's blog, then you already know the secret, but if not..........I have been invited to join the Papertrey Ink Design Team!!! Check it out here! First off I would like to send a huge thank you to Nichole, Jane and Julie for this opportunity! I hope I can make you all proud! Still to this day, I can hardly believe it to be true. This has been a big dream of mine for quite some time, so I thank my Lord for blessing me with the desires of my heart! I look forward to being part of the team and what an honor it will be to work with the best in the business!

So, how about I move onto some PTI business... If you are a regular here to my blog, then you know that I have a favorite PTI stamp set and that I use it often. It's no surprise that I have chose to use it for today's card...

I love this set simply because it is so versatile! It's perfect to create hand stamped pattern papers, focal images and it's so much fun to trim and layer. It's a must have in my opinion!

Here are the rules of the game:

You might have noticed that I haven't mentioned the actual NAME of my favorite Papertrey stamp set, which is the only set I used in my project today. Today's anniversary contest involves you seeking out the name of each design team members favorite set as part of a scavenger hunt. You may recognize the set instantly or you may need to do a bit of research in the Papertrey store HERE.


Each of the design team members have been assigned a number in accordance with their scavenger hunt order. You'll notice according to the graphic at the top of this post I am stop number 2. Create your numbered list and head over to Nichole's blog to enter to win ALL ELEVEN of the team's favorite stamp sets! Be sure not to delay, because the contest ends on February 2nd at 7am EST. The winners will be announced by noon the same day on the February Release Winners page. Have fun and good luck!
