A custom designed CAKE TOPPER!

This week, I created a custom cake topper inspired by my "Garden Love" button collection. The customer had purchased the set of "Garden Love" as inspiration for her daughters upcoming birthday party and when I posted a cake topper later she just had to have one in her theme
I went with a whimsical tree theme, with falling hearts for the leaves, little lady bugs and long legged blue birds around the base of the topper. On the branch I hand crafted a little wooden sign that I added the personal touch of the child's name and also for fun and to add to the whimy feel on the back side of the sign her name PLUS "Land". This cutie's name is Tatym, so we created "Taytumland"
The topper is super lightweight and stands about 7 inches tall.
The best part.  When her birthday had come and gone, this sweet little topper can be used as a keepsake in her room on a decorative shelf. This will last a lifetime and I know if my mom and dad had something made for me like this when I was a little girl I would have LOVED it :)

{A view from the backside} Cuteness 360 degrees!

I asked the parents if they wanted a personlized message on the bottom of the topper. I hand painted their message and sealed it so it will last forever. 
We are now taking custom orders for ALL types of cake toppers. Birthday's, weddings, baby showers, anniversaries....anything that requires something extra special! If you would like a custom cake topper, please email me to set up your custom order at shoptessann@yahoo.com.

Monday's Creative Team Member Spotlight- Rachel Mason!

The button shop is back home from a lovely week away at the Oregon coast were we reunited with family and had the most wonderful time catching up with them.

It's Monday again and I get to share some gorgeous scrapbooking pages and a great holiday card from our Creative Team member, Rachel Mason! Rachel is using a button set from our Winter Wonderful collection. We will be revamping this button set and listing it in the shop in time for your winter crafting projects very soon!

Enjoy Rachel's inspiring pages!

Rachel is an avid collector of vintage wares. She has a wonderful shop filled with vintage wares at etsy! www.rachiesplace.etsy.com  I bought some pretty pink cups from here that I have filled with buttons for a decoration in the button shop!

Rachel used one of our "peppermint candy" buttons and added sequines to the center to create a gorgeous center for her flower!

We love how Rachel used the peppermint candy button as a pop of color to her super cute page of her and the hubs at Disneyland. Rachel even creatively used a sheet of notebook paper for the base of her scrapbook page! How fun, right?  Oh...don't you just adore those little rhinestone micky mouses! How clever is that!?


It's never too early to start thinking about your Christmas cards! This card was created on a kraft cardstock background and to get the great title like Rachel, either use rub-on lettering or stamping to create a fun chunky title. Rachel then embellished the card with our snowman and peppermint candy buttons. We love how she circled her snowman in red rhinestones, creating great visual interest! A little sparkle is always a perfect touch for Christmas cards!

We hope you leave today feeling inspired!   Have a great week!
