Guest Designer, Tessa Buys!


I am so thrilled to introduce you to Tessa Buys, our newest Guest Designer! She's an incredibly talented card maker and we were so excited to see what she'd do with new SRM Stickers.



Firstly, a bit aobut Tessa; "I am a happy mother to three energetic, wonderful boys and wife to an amazing, supportive husband. I began scrapbooking and cardmaking in high school and became seriously addicted when we started our little family. I love preserving family history with layouts, creating things for my home and children, and being able to give personalized, handmade cards to my loved ones and friends. When I am not scrapbooking or creating for my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper, I am choreographing and teaching as a professional dancer and actively serving in my church. I'm thrilled to be guest designing for SRM Stickers and am an SRM Sticker addict for life!"

You can check out Tessa's work by visiting her Blog, Percocious Paper, her Etsy Shop, or her Facebook Page.

Here's what Tessa had to say about her experience working with SRM Stickers: "I first found SRM Stickers in my local craft store here in itty bitty Riverton, Wyoming. I was ecstatic to find something so perfect for cardmaking, and as I played, I realized the possibilities for layouts, too. I love the ease of use, the quality of the stickers, the variety of designs, and the special touch that SRM Stickers lends to every one of my projects."




I adore this matching game Tessa created for her boys using SRM Stickers, patterned paper, and a repurposed tin:



This simply elegant card is so refreshing...wouldn't it make a wonderful sketch?



This is a fabulous card and I love the glittery snowflake, a perfect complement to our new Winter sticker sentiment.



Lastly a Holloween card -- *swoon*!



Thank you, Tessa, beautiful work! Please join me tomorrow for more new SRM and the announcement of our winners from last week's Cosmo Cricket festivities!
