Welcome, welcome, welcome to everyone! All of us here at Papertrey Ink are so excited for this year's online Stamp-a-faire event! It is going to be an amazing opportunity to learn new things, get some stamping done and interact with other paper crafters around the world!
Tonight we are kicking off the festivities with our "Friday Night Meet & Greet"! We hope to make it a bit easier to wait for the BIG DAY as you put the finishing touches on getting ready for tomorrow! Feel free to visit our Stamp-a-faire Customer Forum to chat with other stampers that are in the middle of preparations HERE!
I have asked each of the team members to contribute to a little video footage, allowing you to have a little face-to-face time with each of them even though this is not a live event! In honor of our "time travel" theme this year, many of them reminisce about their first stamping experiences and crafting roots! So grab your favorite beverage and settle in for a 30-minute video that I just know you will thoroughly enjoy! Without further ado, here's the video!
P.S. My portion of the video at the beginning was totally interupted by a a furry friend. See if you can catch him in the act! Not to mention I think a few other team members were interupted by babies and other normal, run-of-the-mill, household fun! Just keeping it real! :)
Fun stuff, right? I love seeing the whole team together like this, even if it is via video!
***EDITED 10:30pm EST- This video has been updated to now feature a welcome from Melissa Phillips. Due to a few technical difficulties, that portion was not included in the original video.
Below you will find an InLinkz list which will allow you to "meet & greet" fellow stampers from around the world and give everyone a peek into your preparations for the big day! Share a link to a photo, video or blog post of yourself with your Stamp-a-faire gear, perhaps with a group of stamping friends that you are getting together with tonight, where you are in your journey if you're on the road or anything else you are doing to prepare for the big day! Be sure to let us know where you are posting from as well!
Two of the participants who post here tonight will be selected to receive a $25 PTI gift certificate and will be announced on our Tuesday night Stamp-a-faire winners post. You have until noon EST, tomorrow (Saturday, August 23rd) to add your link here. We look forward to seeing what you share as well as having you back here tomorrow for all the Stamp-a-faire festivities!
