PTI Make It Monday and an Organizing Tip

Seems like I haven't done paper-piecing in awhile so I was inspired to put Melissa's interesting technique to work at this week's Make It Monday.

I used PTI's Road Trip papers and In Bloom stamp set. I masked off the edges on the card before stamping a bit of a border. The flower centers are glittered up with a gel pen. I tied a bit of lace to a vintage pin before sticking it through my dimensional foam tape.

I'm also entering this into Moxie Fab's Gift Tag challenge.

I thought this would be a good time to share how I keep track of my PTI papers. I made it easy to flip through my options before going on a paper hunt by using PTI's Tag Sale #3 and a circle punch (or two).

I used the same principle with tracking my Pattern Packs except I used the coordinating cardstock. So pretty! I love flipping through it.

Thanks for peeking!

Hi,,,,I love your organization tips. I was wondering if you could tell me how your labeled each tag. Is this something you typed out or did on your computer.
Thanks,,,Stacy :)

The "labels" are what came with the paper packs. I just cut them out and adhered. (Two of PTI's patterned paper labels were too big for the tags, in which case I used my label maker.)

Thanks for this idea, Dana. I really like the patterned paper pack sample against the solid matching cardstock.
