Papertrey Ink Type Strips – Stamps and Dies

So many crafty goodies this holiday – I am so excited!

Today, I finally got a chance to play with Papertrey Ink’s Type Strips mini alphabet stamps and die. I absolutely love it! I’m forever running out of letters in the right color and this set changes everything.

The process is very straightforward – stamp, then die cut. My new MISTI tool made things even easier. I have always been obsessed with getting even coverage. With MISTI and a few magnets, the solid stamp image comes out perfect each time. I haven’t had a lot of time to craft recently but I will definitely write up a review of the MISTI with some of my initial impressions soon.

This Papertrey Ink set will definitely be a workhorse for me, especially with project life. How awesome is it that I’ll now have an endless supply of vowels and all the other letters that always seem to disappear first on my sticker sheets! Love mini alphas!

Papertrey Ink – Tinsel and Tags

I don’t remember how I stumbled upon the Papertrey Ink website last week, but as soon as I read this post, I knew that I had to order the kit. Back in 2011, I created a 12″ diameter ornament with the same dimensional background idea — basically everything was the same except the size and the reindeer! The idea that I could do so on a small scale was so exciting.

This was my first time ordering from Papertrey Ink and it was a smooth and great experience. I ordered on Wednesday Oct. 1, the item shipped on Friday Oct. 3, and received my packaged today on 5 Oct. Everything was packaged beautifully. I have to watch the video on how to adhere the plastic dome to the background paper but I’ve already used the three background layers and I can tell it’s going to be so much fun creating special ornaments for all my special people on a cozy fall afternoon. I’m definitely going to use the metal dies on my Christmas cards too!
