Questions and Answers & a sneak peak

Hello again!

Thank you for all your comments. I TOTALLY hear you about it not being "quite" the same. I promise that tonight's post will make up for it. I got creative and I will have a full tutorial and card to show you. Now keep in mind, I don't have my stamps so I am limited but you won't want to miss this sneak peak.

So I have some more questions and answers for you today....

  1. 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? Yes
  1. 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! Yes…doesn’t that totally figure!!! I thought I would have it by Friday at the latest too…*sigh*
  1. Will there be greetings with this set? Yes
  1. oooo....would a little envelope with little images to put on the envelopes for all occasions, am I close? I hope so, that would be soooo much fun!!! Interesting guess, neat idea even!
  1. Hopefully your package comes quick. Are there sayings that work for little kids sending mail to their family members? Yes…for all ages really
  1. 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??? Some of these for sure!
  1. Please tell us if it has lots of words to go with the cute mailbox image that we got a sneak peek of on Nichole's blog... Sentiments Yes
  1. Will your new set include a cool "label" stamp that you stamp on the envelope with? Ohhh... and little saying to go with mailboxes? Oh that sounds neat…no label and no whimsical sayings for the mailboxes
  1. 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? Some of both
  1. 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. $24
  1. Can't wait to see the new set since my husband is a rural letter carrier!! Will there be a dog included? No
  1. Will this set have future coordinates? Possibly
  1. I'm so excited about this set! It sounds like the perfect set I will need really soon since we will be MOVING to our new house that we're finishing up building! With that said, is there a little house stamp in the set?? Hope so! No sorry!
  1. Is there going to be items to hang on the mailboxes, like wreaths for Christmas, etc? I can’t wait! Neat concept…definitely on the right track but no…
  1. 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? Yes
  1. I have a question, even though this is another post... Is your stamp set mainly about "snail mail" or does it include "email" stuff also? No
  1. Ok, where is that darn stamp set when you need it most? ;-) Tell me about it!!! Argh!
  1. Is there a mailman to deliver the mail in this set? No Will it be interactive - sounds like it COULD be.....oh the waiting... Yes
  1. Does this set have an image of a house? No Also, does this set have postmark squiggles? Yes
  1. I absolutely cannot wait!!! I am hoping it might have ways of decorating the mailboxes...of course that might have already been asked, but I figure if it hasn't, maybe that can be an add on set! :) No and Yes…you’re right that could certainly be an add on set.
  1. Happy Mother's Day to you Alli. I especially love the sentiment about distance. It is so appropriate for me as all of our family is far away. My question is: How many sets are you in the process of designing right now or do you just do one in a month? I created the majority of my sets last year.
  1. My question is this, where did you come up with your idea for this set? My MIL gave me the idea
  1. Do you ever find that you are in a creative funk? Yes
    If so, what do you do to get yourself out of it? I usually take a break from the “project” and enjoy time with my kids. Other times I open up some “house” magazines and then the creative juices flow again.
  1. This set sounds great! I can't wait to see it! Does it include a blank postcard image or outline? No It would be great to use as the "body" of a flat card. Does that make sense? Yes
  1. Can't wait to see this set. Is there a house image in it? No Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful ideas.
  1. What I would like to know is, will the set be a full sized PTI set? Yes
    Will the words be universal to the Uk? Yes
  1. 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? No
  1. Does the set contain a USPS box with Papertrey as the sender on it? That's all I want to see in my box lately (besides friendly notes) :) I LOVED this response *lol*
  1. Alli, looking forward to seeing the set. I'm sure it'll be one we all covet. My ? is are there any sayings that are a play on words? No
    ie: mail - male?
  1. Does this set have some humor with the snail mail? No...but there's ALWAYS potential *wink*

And here is a sneak peak of my you see the potential??? Interactive? Seasonal??!! *grins*

Have a terrific day...and remember I will be posting later tonight. I am working on the editing and write up now.

the whimsical butterfly said...

I'm getting so excited! Are there more images than the ones youve shown us here (i.e. envelopes, hearts) and the one on Nichole's blog or are the rest sentiments? I'm envisioning all these cute images to go along w/ the set!

One Creative Life said...

Ohh how cute. I love the little peek of your card too. I cant wait to see the rest of the set!~Erica

Aviator girl said...

Ali now I am really curious. I know things take longer to get to you obviously but in general how soon do you guys get the new sets to play with before the release? Okay this isn't really yes or no but I figure it doesn't give anything away either. :)
