Mailbox Greetings (5)

With a title like that there is NO guessing what this set is all about. It's PTI countdown time!!!!!

Unfortunately I am unable to share anything with you today because my set is still making its way to me. The GOOD news is, the moment I receive it I will be creating something for you to feast your eyes on. So...here's the deal. I will be checking the post office early tomorrow morning and IF my set is there you will have something to look at by mid afternoon (PDT). IF it is not there then you'll definitely want to check back because I will be giving away clues and hints about the set each day until the release.

In my usual release fashion, I will be giving away "Mailbox Greetings" to one lucky reader some time over the next few days so make sure you let me know you stopped by. I'd love to hear your questions about the set. Specifically, leave me a question in the comment area that requires a "yes" or "no" answer and I will post the answers to your questions.

Today's "Mailbox Greetings" tidbit: think all occasions.

Have a terrific day. I will be back later today with either a project or answers to your questions.

Hmmm... mailboxes. Can this set be combined with other PTI sets? Please tell me that I MUST buy more than one of the new releases!

Can't wait to see your sample, your style is so classic, I love it!

Is there a sentiment appropriate for a new home? (We are moving back home to the States over the summer - HOORAY)

I could hardly wait to check my google reader today to see what you have created this month. Last month's set was totally awesome (I did receive it yesterday--thank you so much) and I have a feeling that this one will be a winner too. I will be refreshing my reader all day in hopes that your set did arrive. Can't wait.

When I first saw "mailboxes" I thought love notes, but now you say all occassion! How exciting! I love all of your other sets, so I know I won't be disappointed!

Judy in Indiana said...

Is there a stamp in the set that is a little envelope? ( see, that is a yes or no question.)

I had pen pals as a child, one of whom I am still in touch with. No one is allowed to bring in the mail but me. The mailbox is no longer full of fun these days, but I still love to take a walk and get the mail. I anticipate it like Christmas morning everyday!

June said...

Love the sound of your new set Alli. Hope your feeling better by now, but these things take a lot out of you and leave you weak and tired. Dont overdo it now but it is exciting with a new release.

Michelle H in NY said...

My question was going to be if it could be used for a new home but that's been asked already so...are there letters/numbers to personalize the boxes? I love your stuff and can't wait to see this set!

Cynthia said...

Can't wait to see what you create. I love your style.
I have been wonderfing about card sizes. Do you make your cards 5x7? Take care Cynthia

Jackie said...

I really like all of your creations - will there be flowers in this set?

Otter said...

Oh fun!! Are we going to be able to "decorate" the mail box?!?!

Glorie said...

Is there a snail in this set? Maybe a snail carrying a letter ... 'snail mail'?

Love your sets!

melissa.flieg said...

Can't wait to see the rest of the set the mail boxes look so cute. I am also hoping there is a snail in the set.

Ruth Shanahan Allmart said...

Ooooo Ali, this set sounds really fun. I was wondering if it will be possible to make an interactive card with this set i.e. could you puul a greeting out of the mailbox????? Can't wait to see the reveal :o)

~Lana B.~ said...

Hope your mail comes soon...always look fwd to your creations!

Is this set something that can be used to decorate the outside of your envelopes???

~Lana~

Anonymous said...

Will it have different types of mailboxes?
I love to make a new home or new neighbor card and take it to a new neighbor with a baked treat. I am eager to see what you have.

Anonymous said...

Ahh, so there will be lots of sentiments, maybe to even stamp on the fronts of envelopes?? That would be sweet! babies

ScrapbookDBA said...

Ali -
I love your style! I can't wait to see your new set! Does the set have a "missing you" sentiment?

- Kimberly

Victoria Hassink said...

I think a little mail set would be great and I can think of lots of occasions. Is there a little bird with the set? I would love to see "a little note" sentiment with a bird!

I am already adding it to my must have list!!

Victoria

IamDerby said...

I cant wait to see your set! do you stamp everyday?

linda patti said...

does the set include a little frame that you could stamp on the front of your envelopes around your postage stamps ?

maria fiscella said...

Hi Alli,

Glad you're feeling a bit better. My question (because for some reason I'm thinking Valentine's Day) is whether or not you have a sentiment in the set that says something like 'Love Note'?

Jodi said...

I sure hope you get your set because the sneak peak that Nicole gave us was so cute. I am sure I will love this set as with the rest of yours. This isn't a yes or no question about the set but how many sets are you going to release with PTI this year? I need to know how many I will be buying! I've loved everything you've done.

Shelly Kettell said...

I can't wait to see it all! Is there something for "New Home"?
Love your style...so I'm sure we'll LOVE this!!!

Anonymous said...

I love your blog. The stamp set looks good so far can't wait to see the rest. Is there a postage stamp in this set?

Aviator girl said...

This set looks like it is going to be a lot of fun! I can't believe how many fun stamp sets you have designed for PTI. Do you have more sets designed for them?

Lighthousegirl said...

I am looking forward to seeing this set :-) I think there is an interesting irony that a set about the mail is held up in the mail!

Will there be greetings with this set?

Thank you for the continuing inspiration

JoAnna said...

oooo....would a little envelope with littleimages to put on the envelopes for all occasions, am I close? I hope so, that would be soooo much fun!!!

Terri E. said...

Hopefully your package comes quick. Are there sayings that work for little kids sending mail to their family members?

It's a good life!
Terri E.

Val said...

This set sounds intriguing! Are there stamps in the set that can be used to embellish envelopes...hope so! Also, will there be stamps that have lots of sayings that can be used in cards...birthday...good luck, congrats...happy anniversary...get well???

karenannj said...

Can't wait to see your set Alli! Your other PTI sets are awesome so I'm sure this one will follow suit.

Melissa D. (SCS honeybee7896) said...

I hate waiting for stamps. I hope you get them today. Can't wait to see what you came up with this time. Your stamps are always great.

Charlene Austin (Willow01) said...

Hi Alli! I am totally intrigued by this set. I can't wait to see it in full and look forward to what you can show us when you do get to create with it! I just love this time of the month!!

Sara said...

Can't wait to see your projects!

m.vivian said...

please tell us if it has lots of words to go with the cute mailbox image that we got a snek peekof on nichole's blog...

can't wait to see the whole thing - you really do have a wonderful style.

Niki Estes said...

Can't wait to see the new set, Alli! I love the little peek we got on Nichole's blog. Have a great day!

Renee said...

Will your new set include a cool "label" stamp that you stamp on the envelope with? Ohhh... and little saying to go with mailboxes?

I'm so looking forward to seeing your new set!

Renee V. (happystamper05)

Stefanie said...

Oh so exciting! I hope your package comes soon. Will the new set be all line stamps to color in, or will there be solid images as well?

Stephanie said...

I saw that someone mentioned numbers for the mailboxes. Simple Alphabet has numbers and they are so tiny..........surely they will work.
Will this set be a $15 or $24 set? Just trying to picture how many images/sentiments there are.

Kathy McDonald said...

Oh, Alli, these sneak peeks are TORTURE! I can't stand the suspense! I already know that I NEED this new set! I'm counting down the days until the 15th! Your work is amazing.

Betty said...

Can't wait to see the new set since my husband is a rural letter carrier!! Will there be a dog included?

Sarah A said...

Will this set have future coordinates?

Denise Bennett said...

Is there going to be items to hang on the mailboxes, like wreaths for christmas, etc? I cant wait!

huntla1 said...

Hi Alli! As others have said, I love your stamps. You say all occasions, so does that mean that you can some how change the holiday/occasion on the mailbox or note?

Elaine said...

Ok, where is that darn stamp set when you need it most? ;-)

Is there a mailman to deliver the mail in this set? Will it be interactive - sounds like it COULD be.....oh the waiting...

Lisa & Penny said...

Awesome clues! Come on Monday! (Hopefully your set is there!) :) Can't wait to see your samples! Lisa K

Alex said...

My question is this, where did you come up with your idea for this set?

Michelle said...

Only 4 more days now! Can't wait!

Davis Family said...

I sure hope you feel better soon.
Can't wait to see your full set.

Verda said...

Can't wait to see this set. Does the set happen to have a border stamp for along the bottom and sides of an envelope?

Gail said...

Oh the clues are just too intriguing! Is there "flag" for the mailboxes? Gail

A mailbox set could be used for so many occasions! It sounds like a good addition to the Papertrey line.

KellyB said...

I noticed in another response that you said most of your sets were designed last year. Are you currently designing any future sets? Love your stuff! :)

Marsha said...

When I first saw "mailboxes" I thought this would make a nice card to send to those we care about who are across the miles.
Can't wait to see the entire set!!

Sara Paschal said...

This is a great set, love your images! Are you professionally trained designer?

Mary said...

Hmmm.... I don't think I have any questions -- I'm just anxiously awaiting the release! I am sure it will be FABULOUS!

Judy S said...

I work for the Post Office, so this set will definately be on my wish list! Can't wait to see it!

denean said...

What I have seen so far is ADORABLE! Can't wait to see the whole set!!

Cindy Holshouser said...

I am wondering if the other ground covers (for under the mailboxes) will coinside with the other seasons? Fall leaves, snow, flowers?

Anne said...

Hi Alli!

LOVE your new set! It's SO cute, and will be perfect for all sorts of cards!

stampinc said...

So far I am in love with this set. Are you planning on having a sentiment set that will go with this set for all the seasons and for all the situations that you can use this set with? I sure hope you pick my number for this FUN set. YOU TOTALLY ROCK! Thanks for a chance.
