Treasured Scrapbooking!

I had the honor of creating buttons to compliment a project kit this month for Treasured Scrapbooking!
They called the kit, Under Tessa Ann's Umbrella. How cute is that?!   I designed coordinating buttons for this kit, as well as the add on kit. Kit clubs are so fun! I love creating those one of a kind little goodies that no one else will have! 

I was sent a fun kit to work with. A neat canvas album by Chatterbox and lots of colorful paper from Prima's Umbrella line.  Here is what I created!  

I used a felt frame to center the title on my album. I handstitched the button I created to the corner. I used bakers twine to thread through the holes in the cute scalloped frame. I used the alphas from the kit to create my title, FAMILY

The kit included 2 colors of paper lace! I use this paper lace as part of my wrapping for my packaging at The Button Shop. It was fun to use in a paper crafting project! 

I really enjoyed journaling about my family for this album. I really enjoyed layering colors and textures for my base pages. Yellow, aqua, red= YUM!

Thanks for taking a peek! I hope you enjoyed my little album :-)

Hello :-)  Tessa checking in!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Steve and I took the day off Saturday from The Button Shop to go have a nice lunch downtown and see Alice In Wonderland.

It was my first time seeing a movie in 3D and it was pretty amazing. The scenes and colors of this film were gorgeous and so inspiring. I can definitely see some button sets inspired by this gorgeous film!  We ended our relaxing weekend sipping wine and watching the Oscars. Although...admittedly we didn't make it through the entire show...like every year..lol. The beginning is the best part and then it just becomes really long. I give props to anyone who can sit through the entire ceremony... I have not made it yet.ha!

I digress ;-)

Well, today's Monday!!! Soooo that means we have a new Creative Team spotlight! Today we have the uber talented, Leslie Ashe!

Leslie has created another set of amazing scrapbooking pages for us all to be inspired by! Leslie choose to work with our OH SNAP! button collection for a great page about her son. Leslie used up the black buttons in this collection for finishing touches to a beautiful page she created about her daughter.

Enjoy her lovely scrapbooking art! Have a wonderful week!
