PTI Anniversary Celebration

More fun going on at PapertreyInk! This day's challenge celebrates a new dept. of bags and embellishments.
My daughter needed more tags for her jewelry sold on Etsy, so mama used the challenge to do her a few tags!
Marybeth inspired this one.
She got a shout out for her beautiful tag, because of it's depth.
I popped out the center of one of PTI's tags, stamped Mat Stack 5 in smokey shadow, and dressed a Signature Series dress form up with bitty pearls.
My daughter Alisa's jewelry shines for brides and their maids, not to mention her mommy, who loves to show off her daughter's talent!
Every purchase comes with a handmade tag (mom's handiwork), this one popped off a Background Basic: Wrought Iron Kraft tag. She asked for a 'thank you on each one, with her stamp, 'All Things Tinsel' printed on a die cut banner on back.
I attached it with gold thread so the receiver could detach it and use the tag again.
Stamped this one first with Delightful Doilies.
Another with Delightful Doilies, and Alisa's gorgeous chain draped over the tag.
Hard to see, but edged in silver ink. I think it's my fave. Just like the overall look.
Finally one stamped with a rubber stamp (unfortunately rarely used and gathering dust!).
All 6 together
And a closer look at the necklace she made me!
Look hard and you can see the tiny sewing machine charm, represents years of sewing for kids and grandkids, now it's used for sewing cards!
Alisa's site is: allthings
She started an online store for children too: 'Tinsel for tot's.
I know, I'm her biggest fan. But she's been shown in several bridal magazines and Bridal shoots.
She does custom, and uses vintage pieces she has collected from all over the world!
Hope you're all having fun playing  along with PapertreyInk this week.
Their release promised to be a showstopper!


  1. I can see where your daughter gets her talent (her jewelery is AMAZING). Your tags are on par with her work - spectacular. I would love getting such a beautiful thank-you tag with something I purchased. She's lucky to have such a crafty mother.

  2. Her daughter would be thrilled to have HALF her talent! I'm so excited to see these in person. How am I supposed to give these away?! Your photos are making me drool! You are a GREAT photographer...not a surprise.

  3. Wow these tags are supercool! So feminine and stylish! They fit the jewelery perfectly!

  4. Such talent in your family! Those necklaces are special and your packaging is divine! Thanks for sharing!
