BRAVO Betsy! This kit is just the ticket! I just spent the weekend making shakers for the PPP Shaker blog hop. Your kit would have made it MUCH EASIER!! The shaker card is so addictive to make:)

OK, Betsy--I just want to eat up all of your cards made with this new Shakers & Sprinkles kit! Absolutely Scrumptious!! So colorful and happy!! I know that I would be HAPPY HAPPY to receive a card made with any element of this Kit! Thank You for all of the wonderful inspiration!! XOXO-Shari


Betsy, you must have had a blast developing this kit because it exudes fun and happiness. The colors, sentiments, sprinkles - all of it is beyond amazing.

My immediate and extended family have been going through some hard times this year and it will be wonderful to be able to send them some cards filled with cheerfulness. Any cards made with this kit will surely bring a smile. I thank you for that.


PS - Oops, forgot to mention that I love how you used the rectangle scallop for a border. I was looking at the border, wondering what die you used (and wanting it). There was the answer in the next sentence. This really is a multifunctional kit.

Elise McKinney

The kit is just amazing! I am so excited to start creating cards with it. They will surely bring smiles to the recipient. You did it again, Betsy!


Betsy, this kit is nothing less than amazing! WOW! And your samples are just awesome!!! It is all so YOU, too, and that makes it even better! Love it!

Oh Betsy! This kit is so amazing! The dies alone have endless possibilities, besides everything else included. Love the sprinkles! Thank-you so much!

Kimberly Davis

I am in love with this kit and all the possibilities! You are a genius designer!! I hope PTI decides to sell more of the double sided adhesive foam sheets and also more of the sprinkles, as I see myself making a lot of cards with this kit! Also the paper pad is adorable and I would probably buy more of this as well!

tammy r

Sorry the PTI website was not working :( and I could not stay up all night to purchase this awesome kit!

carol aka krillsister

So disappointed in not being able to order your fab kit. I hope you rethink how your product will be released in the future. Very sad.

Karen Kelly

This kit is amazing! I joked on the PTI site when I commented to try and win it that the site would crash--saw that coming a mile away :) I don't blame everyone for wanting it and I can't wait to get mine. Hands down one of the best kits I've ever seen--nicely done!

Marcie Rhys

Well, do you think your kit is a HUGE success?! In typical Betsy fashion, you have brought all your brilliance to bear on this project.

I tried to leave a comment yesterday on Papertrey's site, but I was not able to get through the logistics of it. Probably even then you were helping Papertrey's infrastructure come to it's knees. I've never thought that the web prowess of PTI was up to the standards of such a talented group of artists. Frustrated as folks will become trying to buy your fabulously designed kit, it will be gone in the blink of an eye.

Even though I will not probably be able to buy this kit (too difficult to time), you have again left all of us with so many gifts. Your video is positively fabulous. You are as fine an engineer as you are visual artist. "Leave the double sided adhesive in the die until one side as been affixed." What a fabulous idea that makes your innovative product collection so accessible. That one tip (not counting all the others) will mean the difference between barely successful and spot-on stunning.

The stamp set and dies are some of the best released through Papertrey to date, and that is saying quite a lot. The papers you have included are my favorites, so far, hands down. Your colorful, fun, and charming designs should become a part of Papertrey's regular offerings. Usually if rules are declared, ("when the kits are gone they are gone for good") it seems wise not to break them; otherwise, what is the point? But, maybe the inconvenience of ordering the kit, that has left many of us feeling badly about the "Papertrey problems" again, can be turned to our advantage. The kit is so brilliant, that offering the non-consumables for purchase during a regular release, would soften the blow. The dies and stamps, along with your video, would make it a run away success with a VERY wide crafting audience.

Once again, thank you for bringing your artistic gifts and your wonderful sensibilities into my life. Never doubt for a moment that you are a bright light in the world.

Debbie P

This kit looks like so much FUN! Do you know if Papertrey will be offering refills on the double sided adhesive sheets for purchase.? I know that we will all use up what is in the kit.


Thanks so much Betsy for this amazing kit! Everybody wants to have it, you make us crashed the web site :)


Betsy, is it too late to order one of these kits? I just landed on your blog and absolutely fell in love with this entire kit!!
