Design team reveal!

This month's kit from TSF (two scrapbook friends) held a few surprises for me. Each team member was given a "Beyond the Page" project from Kaisercraft as well as a little plastic tube. Our focus was the BTP and then with whatever we had left we could create layouts/cards.

I was THRILLED to get one of the new trays to decorate because I've wanted to do one for awhile. The paper line I was given was from My Mind's Eye's Stella & Rose, Hattie collection and well I couldn't have been happier.

I used a layers of vintage photo ink and tattered leather Glimmer mist to cover the wood

I picked up some of the extra embellishments that coordinated with the collection

I added wired ribbon, buttons and raffia from my stash

I cut these flowers out of a patterned paper then rolled them up

Can you see the tulle behind this photo?? Love the tiny little lock that is also MME

I made this layout with what I had left and some buttons from my stash

When I first stuck the buttons down I thought they looked bare so I hand stitched them
