My sweet Charley is curled up in my lap right now, purring with contentment.

I love everything showcased today! Garden Party is gorgeous. Cutaway Tags are a must. Petal Box die is not only easy to assemble, it's so cute!

So darn cute! I can't wait to start making the carts.
Every moment of every day, I knew I was loved by my dad. I miss him so much.

Creating brings me joy and fuels my soul. Whenever I can craft all day, I am happy. A dream day would be stretched into a weekend where I am surrounded by pretty paper, new stamps and dies, soup in the crockpot, fresh fruit and veggies for snack breaks, a bowl of M&Ms, COFFEE, and time to just stamp, paint, color, and play with possibilities. A crafting weekend with friends at a resort sounds lovely and would be a dream, but most of the time I love my "tune-out-the-world" mode and just get lost in process. I usually listen to music while stamping. If I am doing the hand sewing projects with felt, I love to watch favorite movies or entire seasons of favorite shows. Anne of Green Gables, Gilmore Girls, and classic movie musicals are my go-to (and ready) choices.

Gran's Garden is beautiful. Quoted is perfect and I can't wait to stamp it in my planner. This month has so many lovely sets and dies.

It's all been wonderful and I'm excited for the year ahead. In addition to loving the changes and plans for new products, the challenges were particularly fun, especially making the bird house. My favorite? The year-by-year showcase of stamps and the challenge to revisit sets and create new cards. It's been an amazing 10 years of timeless stamps that still bring me so much joy. I think that pulling out older sets and stamping these classic PTI images and sentiments was the perfect way to celebrate a decade of memories as we look forward to what the future may bring. Happy anniversary, PTI.

I'm all in with today's stamps and dies. Love the cutaway floral die and that carrot box and bunny are too cute. Must-haves for me.

I love Kay's flower medallion dies and the day by day blocks. It's going to be a big wish list for this March release.

Gorgeous cards, innovative stamps and dies, generous prizes, and teaching tips...why I love Papertrey Ink. I'm also equally inspired by how PTI has supported talented women who continue to bring their unique gifts and passions to us year after year. It's been wonderful to watch their careers blossom. If I won a year of stamps, I would have to first remember to breathe, then call mom, and then figure out the best ways to pay it forward. Happy 10th anniversary to everyone at Papertrey Ink. Thank you for bringing joy, play, inspiration, and so much more. Much love and gratitude, Rita. PS...I'm giddy about those mix and match frames!

I use planners for inspiration, goal-setting, and action plans. For me, I didn't like seeing my old planners filled with primarily to-do lists and chores so I decided to create more of a "Spark Joy" planner that focuses on how to create days packed with what and who brings me joy. Now when I look back at the year, I see inspirational quotes, captured moments (details of the day) that I want to remember, color and images that make me smile. My daily bulleted "baby steps" is a time capsule of how I achieved dreams bit-by-bit. The planner is also a place for stamping, coloring, journaling which means it's fun; I enjoy making dashboards, inserts, pockets, bookmarks, and more. I will love stamp sets and dies that I can use for inspiration, gratitude, whimsical tiny characters/images that make me smile, etc. I know PTI will continue to bring amazingly creative and innovative possibilities to Moments Inked.

Wonderful post, Rebecca! It was a beautiful tribute to this craft and how it connects you with people you love. With that heartfelt touch, it becomes more than just paper. Your beautiful photos inspire, too. Love the soft colors and textures, and each detail that brings the pretty packaging together. I will be excited to see what inspires you in the year ahead: envelope art, how to stretch the use of PTI favor bag dies, felt/stitching dies in packaging projects, interesting supplies I never thought to use in packaging gifts. Congratulations to everyone on the PTI team. It's going to be another amazing year. Happy anniversary!
I am a huge fan of the stitching dies and am so happy to see this product line continue and be spotlighted in new ways. Cheering while I do a happy dance. I made coasters to match my living room rug and everyone loves them. I'll be thinking outside the box with the dies, thanks to Lizzie's tic tac toe game. Off to start planning and creating a project...Happy anniversary, PTI.
Tulip Time is definitely one of my favorites of 2016. There are so many lovely floral sets to choose from the year. I love the layering flower sets. Happy anniversary PTI...wishing you all the best!
Baker's Dozen is just deliciously fun to stamp. It's definitely a favorite from 2015 and I was so happy to see it showcased today. Happy Anniversary, PTI.
Beautiful Blooms will always be favorites. They are timeless and now I love to use the dies for the felt stitching projects, too. Friendship Jars is signature PTI. Love all the jar sets.
2011 was a very good year! Love the Year of the Flowers collection and I still adore that penguin. You've highlighted some of my most used sets in today's post.
Heart2Heart #4 is my favorite and most used set from 2012. I make a lot of Hello cards. Sweet Life is also at the top of my list.
Mini Blooms and Bigger Blooms were my favorites from 2013. Ruby Rose is third runner up and well-loved, too.
Garden Grace is one of my favorites from 2014. Feather Finery is perfect for heat embossing and ink blended backgrounds. It's a gorgeous set.
