Paper Trey Ink Dies and Stamps

Happy Monday,
Thank you all so much for the Ethan's birthday wishes. He had a great day and enjoyed his pirate party so much...I put pictures of the party over on my facebook page if anyone wants to see....

I'm a little behind on email so if you emailed me over the past week or so and haven't heard from me, I hope to get caught up over the next day or two :)

Now down to today's video...Tons of requests to see how the Paper Trey Ink dies work with the Cuttlebug and Big Shot....So here it is....I do recommend the metal shim if you plan on using felt with the PTI dies. Paper Trey Ink's felt is yummy :)

Have a great Monday :)


  1. Christina,
    Great tutorial, thanks for doing the video.
    LOL @ losing the die. I would lose my head if it wasn't on my neck

  2. Thanks for the tutorial. It was great. I have never used the PTI dies and stamps but think now I will.


  3. Great tutoria!! I am going to have to check out PTI dies out. I love the cute frame dies and the matching stamp sets to match:)Thanks for sharing...

  4. Great timing as always! After watching your haul video I hauled my little fingers over to PTI and bought several mini stamp sets w/ the dies and I thought to myself, I hope their easy to figure out! Thanks for showing! Have a great Monday!

  5. Great tutorial. I'm getting ready to place my first order with PTI. I'm dieing to try their paper. Do you have any of their border dies and if so do you think they work well on cards?
    When you said you lost your die I was laughing so hard. I was actually sitting here pointing to it for you on your desk. (like that helped at all)
    Have a great day and thanks so much for all the great videos to watch. I also have one more question. Is there a way to look at the full handbook of a cricut cartridge? I want to see the other designs on lifes a party.
    God Bless

  6. Girl you are right on the time w/the video! Thanks so much.
    You are appreciated!

  7. Love the video thank you so much!:)

    I'm not sure if anyone told you in regards to your new paper cutter last week (my blackberry is not a great place for responding) on your new paper cutter you need to press down to add pressure when you are cutting.

    Hope you have a relaxing week!

    ((NY hugs))


  8. Thanks for the video. I have never used PTI dies or stamps but they look great to use. TFS Susan

  9. I did like it!! So easy and so cute!

  10. Thanks for the video!!! I never thought of using an image in those frames, da!! Thanks for the tip!! Cathryn67 :)

  11. Hi Christina,
    I was wondering if you know if you can use the pti dyes with the Tim Holtz Vagabond... at the moment that is the only machine that I own.

  12. PTI and Creations with Christina...a good match in my book! Love your tutorials and your thoughts.
    p.s. I loose stuff in front of me all the time while crafting. Glad I am not alone.

  13. Wow I really liked the video. I had a big order for PTI but didn't push send. I am trying so hard to be good. I have a MFT die and I used it today to cut some fabric and it cut like butter. My nesties only cut part of it. Are PTI the same a My Favorite Things? I only have two of MFT die. I see now why I would want both kinds of dies. They are different for different things. Thanks for showing how to use the die and stamp together.

  14. Hey girl! You are quick! Thank you posting the video.

  15. Hi Christina,
    Thanks for the video. My question is, are the doily dies from PTI easy to use? I think you ordered them from the last video. You made me laugh when you misplaced your die. I do that all the time :)

  16. Christina you ar a hoot. I love it that you don't edit out the booboo's, instead you act just like I would do in your place. Great video. Thank you.

  17. Thanks Christina for answering my questions! great video bloopers and all. :-)

  18. Great tutorial! Thanks for showing us how easy these sets are.

  19. Can you cut chipboard with these dies???

  20. Great video. I love Papertrey Ink paper and also have one color of their ribbon and buttons so far (but want more). Now I need their dies and stamps!!! lol

  21. The older I get the more often things "hide in plain sight" lol

  22. I thought you and your followers might be interested in these cute homemade cards at Weekly Giveaway

  23. thanks for the tutorial , PTI is new to me. would like to get someday.

  24. Love PTI dies and stamps. A little tip for getting the cut out of the die without having to bend it is to use either a small piece of removable double sided tape or the QuickStik from QuicKutz.

  25. Glad to hear the birthday party was a success. Great tutorial as always. Thanks

  26. Thanks for the tutorial!!! After watching the How to set up your PT stamps, I placed my first order with them and soooo very pleased with them, they were here in no time!! I love your tutorials!!
    Thanks again

  27. Oh boy, something else I now NEED!! Check out and look at the stamps called "Honey Pops". I think you would like them, my friend told me about them the other day. I need another job with all of these new supplies.... :)
