You Make Life So Sweet - Papertrey Ink Challenge

How are you all doing this fine Tuesday morning?
Can you believe it's Valentine's Day tomorrow?! I feel like this year it just crept up so quickly!

I created these sweet little tags for Papertrey Ink's Retired Stamp set Challenge...And of course, they were inspired by the day of love. 

Speaking of retired stamp sets, have you taken a peek at all the sets that will no longer be offered past May of this year? It's sad to say goodbye to gorgeous artwork and I cannot even imagine how hard it is for the PTI team to decide each year what sets go and which ones stay....But I am certain that the team has many exciting new releases coming up and I am so anxious to see what the new year brings. 

For now and while I wait for all the new goodies, my wish list is already full of many old favorites :) 

Today I decided to pay tribute to one of my most favorite sets that I haven't pulled out in a while...Strawberry Patch Sentiments. I am SO glad that I picked this set up and it's one that I know will remain a classic for years to come. I do encourage you to grab one before they're all gone! 

For the base of these little tags I used the new Tag Sale: Quilted die along with some sweet polka dot paper. Layered on top of the paper I added a little mason jar, cut using PTI's Jar and Lid die, stamped with a polka dot background from PTI's Friendship Jar stamp set, using PTI's Spring Rain dye ink.

I just so happened to have these sweet little berry stamps and dies from WPlus9 and thought they would make a lovely addition to the tags. 
All the berries are stamped using the Fresh Picked stamps and dies from WPlus9.

The sentiments on both tags are from PTI's Strawberry Patch Sentiments stamps. 

On both of the tags, I also added a little heart, cut from PTI's coasters, using the Cover Plate: Hearts die. I absolutely love how these coasters look when die-cut and inked...It just adds such a lovely dimension to the project - especially in-person :)

For the leaves I used ink colors of New Leaf, Spring Moss and Ocean Tides

I hope you all have someone near and dear to your heart to share Valentine's Day with. 
We will be celebrating today, in lieu of my hunny's travels - but we have a wonderful night planned and I am so looking forward to it. 

Thanks for visiting today! I will be back tomorrow to share more :) 



  1. These are as sweet as can be! You have me wanting to head over to PTI to order those yummy little berries!

    1. Thanks a heap, Lisa! Aren't the berries just too cute? Just a note - they're actually from WPlus9, but I can't seem to find the link for the stamps. They are called "Fresh Picked". Hope that helps!

  2. How adorable are these! I can´t wait to use my new PTI goodies from my last USA/CANADA trip! T love this tag die :) xoxo
