PTI Birthday Celebration Challenges!


Yay.... I am finally getting around to working on a few cards/projects for the Papertrey Ink 8th Anniversary Celebration! I am determined to participate in every challenge..... SO much fabulous inspiration and many, many GREAT prizes!

Day 2: Maile Inspired Challenge
Maile is always an inspiration! I especially loved this card (and bought the stamp set and matching dies based solely on Maile's project!).

Day 3: Bagged and Tagged Challenge
Oh, how I love a beautifully packaged gift and truly believe that it's all about the presentation! The challenge.... to create a project with a handmade tag and matching bag(or, in this case, a box).

Day 4: Build a Bouquet Challenge
I just may have gotten a bit carried away with this challenge. Florals are my weakness - I had so many flowers stamped and die cut I didn't know what to do! So I just put them all on one card!

Day 7: Heavy Metal Challenge
Wow, I never realized how little I use metallic cs or embossing! It's a really lovely look and fancies up most any project. However, it is quite the challenge to photograph, so please pardon my sub-par pic (I will try, try again asap)! 

Day 8: Blue Ombre Challenge
I used my copics to create the blue ombre look, which is purposely a bit streak-y (just experimenting a little!). SO many other beautiful blue ideas are floating around in my head and such great inspiration in the gallery!

That's all for today, but I will be back with Day 1 Challenge: DT Inspiration and the Day 5 Challenge: Spring into Action as soon as possible! Many thanks for taking a peek! Enjoy all of the Papertrey Celebration fun!


  1. Your cards are awesome, I cannot choose one over the other!

  2. Holy smokes Michelle, these are all amazing!! I adore your gorgeous pillow box!!

  3. These are just so beautiful...but that bouquet of posies is a real show stopper!!! So stunning.

  4. All of your projects are wonderful! I especially love that gorgeous flower tag.

  5. All fantastic - the flower card is my most favorite!

  6. Wow love all your projects... fabulous! Do you use a shim to cut Bloom Builder 3 (Day 3). Mine never cut through and i use a piece of card stock as shim.
